    Very nice stay! Don't be shy to ask to the people working there what you should do around, we did with Bobby and she made us do things we were not supposed to do and we had the best time! Thanks a lot!

    Rooms are ok, We had to ask for towels, blower in our room is not working, the kitchen is far from where we stayed. But the location is 5-10 minute walk to downtown which is good, nice view, free wifi. The staff are friendly.

    Literally everything was nice about that place..... Except the washrooms, I literally couldn't hang my towels/clothes anywhere and it's one of the most dirtiest things I've seen. Other than that the staff is super friendly and it's in a nice convenient location

    Please stop rising prices.

    After 17 years, visited again Canada Banff. Amazed, even hostel accommodation fee has increased to be double. I used to work in Banff Springs incidentally.
