    Price and location

    It is usual hostel, not too clean, lack of privacy, thats OK, But some people seem to be workers living there for the season. They sit out in the courtyard, very loud and disrespectful, keeping everybody else awake.

    Free internet (limit 30 mins)

    Had no kitchen or laundry facilities. Shared bathroom/toilet with six others no additional bathroom/toilets provided. Rooms faced courtyard which people hung out. Very noisy.Just didn't seem very well organized.

    Fabulous

    I was able to move to other room, because I do not like the previous one, and it was really great, thanks!

    There might be more healthier option for breakfast, just plain porridge would be great.

    Fabulous

    The hostel had very friendly staff that was there to offer help whenever. They were very patient and did not mind being asked a lot of questions. It was my first time in Banff so I literally asked every question i could about the town and they were willing and also able to answer all of my questions. I felt very at home and warm staying at this hostel. Another good thing about staying at the hostel is that you get to dorm with other people so it was nice to meet others from all around the world. This is not the place to be if you want to live in luxury but it is the place to be for those travelling alone wanting to meet new people and have a lot of gun.

    Fabulous

    Clean, cheap, and friendly atmosphere.

    I just didn't enjoy the 'included' breakfast. I just had plain oatmeal that I nuked in the shared guest kitchen. No fruit available. I guess I could have whipped up instant pancakes, or toast or cereal. Slim pickings. Next time I'll just bring my own breakfast to prepare. Would have been better to know how breakfast was done before hand.

    There was a breakfast

    The breakfast was very mediocre the hotel room was mediocre with a very uncomfortable bed the towels were crappy and small the hotel was ok, but I have stayed in much nicer places for the same price. It was not worth $80

    Very good

    Rooms were comfortable and relatively tidy for a hostel. Breakfast was ok and facilities were good.

    Maybe some butter too for the breakfast and a waffle pan for the pancakes? Also my booking got mixed and I ended up in a mixed not a female dorm.

    Superb

    The hostel was very close to downtown and easy to find. There was enough parking which was nice, and breakfast was much appreciated. Also, the ensuite washrooms were large and very clean.

    The beds were not very comfortable at all. The mattresses were far too thin and the metal springs could felt all night long.
