        During my two day stay I had to cancel my last night and was afraid I would not get a refund. Matty at the front desk was awesome and worked it all out for me so I could check out early with a full refund....More

        First time I had stayed at a hostel. I was surprised. The rooms were clean and the place was quiet. My roommates were very polite and no one intruded in anyone's privacy. The prices in the restaurant were ridiculously high. $2.50 for a small cup...More

        I only stayed one night but the hostel was clean, the staff friendly and very reasonably priced. It only missed out on 5 stars because the location is slightly away from the Main Street in Banff (20-25min walk). Other than that it was fab!
