Samesun Banff, Banff
Great stay overall, I really enjoyed my time at the hostel :) Location was awesome, easy walking distance to downtown! The breakfast was good, perfect for what was needed to get the day started. Beds were very comfortable and overall the room was good! I'll stay there again when I return back to Banff!

You get what you pay for.
The bed was tiny, and the guy beside me threw up all night, but overall it was worth the price. Wouldn't go again though.

Best Hostel Service
One of the best hostels I have ever stayed. Samesun staff were super nice and friendly. They try to help you plan your itinerary and give you valuable advice to their best efforts. One memorable incident that struck me was that even though they sell ski passes and package, when I told them I am a first timer, they didn't even think twice to introduce their competitors to me - at no extra commission. Very helpful staffs!
