  • Awesome hostel with a great vibe! Cheap drinks all night (reallyyyy cheap) and just a little walk away from the night life. Very clean and cozy. Large shower and a home-type bathroom without stalls. Loved it. We be back again.

  • Not far from the center, walking distance from the Greyhound station and the city bus passes just in front. Big room, big bathroom in the room (sink separated from the bath and the toilet bowl, which is useful in a dorm for 6) and small terrace outside. Good breakfast. Liked it!

  • The staff at Samesun Banff were AWESOME. One particular staff member Kate dealt with some initial concerns that I had with the up most professionalism and as a result my stay with Samesun turned out to be excellent. The bar offered cheap dinner time food options (filling and tasty), and something to do of a night time. Cleanlyness of bathrooms was what I expected.
