You can't think of Canada without thinking of the Rocky Mountains!  Our Banff hostel is the perfect base to get your hiking boots on and go explore the Rockies.  Based right on the picturesque Banff Avenue, with a stunning view of Cascade Mountain - you'll wake up refreshed and inspired by the sights!

After a day of hitting the slopes or strolling through the town, enjoy beers and burgers in our on-site bar and restaurant - The Beaver.



Our friendly and knowledgeable Banff staff will help you make the most of your Banff visit. We can help you with lift passes and transportation options to the three nearby ski fields: Sunshine Village, Lake Louise and Norquay.

Or if you’re here in the summer, we can help you get to Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Emerald Lake and Banff Hot Springs. If you want to see the impressive Banff Springs Hotel or hikes from the town of Banff itself, we can also help you out with that.

Our staff can also guide you to the best places to eat and drink in the town from the wide array of options available. And wherever you are going next, our 24-hour desk staff are here to help.
