Banff is beautiful!
I had a decent stay at the Samesun. It wasn’t the cheapest or the cleanest, but it was the best of the options in the town. Hotels are just way too expensive. Overall I would recommend it compared to the alternatives. The location is awesome, right in Banff town. The wifi worked well. They provided towels. There’s a bathroom for each bunk room. The sheets has stains and weren’t that clean, so they could use some new ones. The staff were very friendly. The brekkie was very basic but what can one expect for a hostel.

Nice hostel with great Staff in Banff
The staff was extremely nice and helpful. I also enjoyed the free breakfast and making my own pancakes. It is located within a walking distance of Banff downtown area. Parking is limited but it is possible to park on the street. I'd definitively consider this hostel when will go back to Banff.
