SameSun Banff is the most centrally located hostel in Banff, a quick walk from the greyhound station, mountain trails, and centre of Banff's social life. Our convenient location ensures you don't need to wait in the cold for a bus to explore the town, or take a taxi to return home at night.

Just steps away from everything Banff has to offer, Samesun Backpackers is directly on Banff avenue.
We are also home to the Beaver Lounge, Banff's only backpacker pub directly on Banff Avenue! Featuring Open Mic nights, DJ's playing and weekly backpacker parties, we boast a great atmosphere with cheap drinks and $6 dinner specials. This bar is the newest hot spot of downtown Banff!

A recently converted hotel, we are proud to have some of the nicest dorm rooms of any hostel in the country, cleaned daily by our friendly and helpful housekeeping staff! Recognising people come to "do stuff' in Banff, we also cater for a wide variety of travellers creating an activity program is second to none!

The backpackers also offers free continental breakfast, free wi-fi, public internet terminals, tv room and essentially any other creature comfort you need!

Please note that you must be at least 18 years old to stay here and have valid government issued photo ID
Prices are per person per night.
