Good location on Banff Avenue, close to everything. Front desk staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The dorms are clean and spacious. The rooms and the bathrooms are cleaned daily. All in all, a good hostel in the heart of Banff!

I cannot speak highly enough of this hostel. It was comfortable, clean and in a great location. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable and always willing to assist guests however they can. Also, the pancakes at breakfast are awesome!

It is near-impossible to encapsulate the experience of staying at Samesun Venice. There’s just something about that place that makes for the most amazing times with friends new and old. Dominic, the activities coordinator ensures that everyone feels both welcome and constantly entertained… I would recommend this place to anyone whether they are looking to be entertained or mere relaxation.

The staff were very friendly, especially Quinton and Neil. The location was amazing, right across the road from downtown and the beach. Also, the patio area was a big up for me, a great place to just chill out and have a few drinks.
