Great hostel, always something on at night. The staff are wonderful so friendly and helpful. It's in a great central location on banff avenue. You will never get bored staying at the samesun, great nightlife in banff too.

Stayed solo for 4 nights in a 6-dorm females only. The rooms were clean & beds comfortable. Could hear everyone in Banff having fun but with my earplugs in I was out like a light.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice and included toast, pancakes, oranges slices and hot cereal. The in room lockers are small but could fit my essential valuables.

I stayed here with my friend for a week in May and we had a fantastic time. The hostel was clean, nice breakfast in the morning, the staff were very helpful and answered all questions, kitchen had plenty utensils, noise was minimal, short walk to town. Banff is a lovely place and we had a great time here. Would definitely stay again. Can't think of any negatives, a tip for other travellers is do your laundry in the early morning, one of the machines was broken, therefore seemed to be in use anytime we went during the day.

The dormrooms are fine but the private room is way to expensive for a hostel. A good hotel would be just as expensive and would be more luxurious.
It's a very busy hostel, crowded. The food isn't to bad. Towels are free but only half of the waching machines work.

Really easy to find, even better atmosphere upon arrival! Will definitely go back. Nothing to complain about. Everyone was happy friendly and very easy to deal with (both staff and guests). A lot of past guests joined for drinks of an evening proving that the beaver bar is a great spot to enjoy a beverage or two while participating in the evening event planned by the hostel. Loved it!!
