Terrible smell and bad habits during night
I would like to give a short review to you and when I first opened the door the room smelled terrible to sweat, foot odor and terrible smell at the second night I stayed there. I just slept 2 nights and it was not the best experience for it. My bed was beside the washroom wall and a guy sleeping at the 204 room his bed just in front the room door used the washroom at 3 in the morning for pooping and left the door opened for all the night with a terrible smell. Beside this guy has his laundry sweaty clothes and his smelly socks beside his room with terrible smell. Bad attitude from this boy, I believe this boy is renting the hostel room for long term because of his habits to live. Thank you for the good service anyway.

It's a good place for what you pay, don't expect anything fancy. The room was quite clean, and as long as you have earplugs, the nights are restful.

First trip to Banff.
Nice hostel, friendly, lots of stores in walking distance. Beds could have had privacy curtains like hostel in Japan. And there's about 9 parking spots so you most like likely will have to park on the street Also, They don't call or email if you don't call ahead to say you'll be late for check-in. Be careful as they may cancel your reservation
