Most people’s first thoughts of Canada include the massive Rocky Mountains, rugged nature, wildlife and wide-open natural spaces. This is Banff. Long having been the postcard of Canada, Banff town’s location in Banff National Park makes it a truly awe-inspiring site for any traveler. With countless hikes, vistas and animals, there are endless opportunities to explore and get off the beaten path. And in the winter there’s also fantastic skiing.

Located on Banff Avenue, in the heart of it all, Samesun Banff is the closest hostel to all that this town has to offer. We are a short walk from great cafes, as well as supermarkets, shopping, restaurants and breweries. Banff provides the perfect base to explore the beautiful mountains, lakes and wildlife in the area during the day, while allowing you to settle in with a drink on a patio in the evening time.

Samesun Banff offers both dorms and private rooms, as well as the Beaver Bar onsite for cheap meals and drinks. We also offer guest parking, laundry, a large common room and guest kitchen. In sun or snow, Banff is a must visit on every traveller’s bucket-list.
