We stayed here for only one night but had pre-booked for a week at $79 a night. We were lucky to find a place in just 12 hours in Banff and only had to stay at the hostel for one night but when we checked out and paid for the night we were charged for 2 nights the second night as cancellation fee which is fair enough as it does state in the terms and conditions that there is a cancellation fee if it is less than 24hours notice for a cancellation. What bothered me though was when we booked we were under the impression that for our room was $79 per night as stated on a booking sheet for 2 people when we checked out it all of a sudden it came to $105 a night because it was the weekend. No where did it say when we were booking that there is an extra charge for a Friday and Saturday night being the weekend. We had the private double room with bathroom and it was actually quite nice as far as hostels go I felt like we were at a hotel. But if I knew that there was weekend rates and our $79 a night was going to escalate to $105 a night I would of actually stayed at a hotel.
The breakfast was quite good as most hostels it is do it yourself as you should expect. There is a great range of breakfast food you can choose from - pancake mix, cereals, breakfast bars, different bread with about 5 different spreads. I thought it was well set out and well done for a hostel. It is only a 10 minute walk into town which is really convenient if you are looking for a place or job.
