Such a beautiful, fun and clean hostel. Staff were the most friendliest people and went above and beyond for me and my friends. The beds were actually super comfy, huge bathroom in our room, our room was always cleaned very well when we got back from our outings, free breakfast with delicious foods and you get to make your own pancakes. All of their recommendations for restaurants, bars, little touristy spots and hikes were just fantastic. Thank you Samesun xx I’ll definitely be back :)
I stayed at the Samesun in Banff for a full week with one of my friends. The staff, activities and FOOD was amazing there. Tacos, burgers, fries, cauliflower bites are just some of the things I had.
I really enjoyed their Music Trivia night, it was a great time.
House keeping came by every day and our room was freshly painted so looked great.
I decided to go for a solo hike and the staff at the front desk were so nice and knowledgeable with where to go and what to look out for.
I will be back here for sure! Thank you everyone!
I decided months ago to stay at this Extremely popular hostel in Banff. I was pleasantly surprised by this place. Not the cleanest hostel I’ve been to but it wasn’t terrible. The place felt rather run down (shower rods falling off of wall, stains in carpet, mildew looking tub). Hostels are not 5 star places so I’m not knocking more stars off. The missing star is for not being informed of the bar that was downstairs and the lack of communication on community events. I drove up after a long travel day to be met with a noisy bar scene. It’s a great little bar but being informed would have been helpful. Also, was a solo traveler and would have enjoyed the community events. I didn’t find out about them until my last day. Some notes: book this place early. The fares are much better than walking up. They do fill up quickly however they always seemed to have an open bed so if you’re in Banff for the night, check these guys out first.
It was my first hostel experience and it was awesome! It was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was nice.
The fact that there is a bar attached makes it so easy to meet people. The chicken tacos were great and FREE BREAKFAST!!!
I'll be staying here again in the future for sure!
Samesun was hands down the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff, in particular Katy and Sarah, made it not only one of the most hospitable, but also one of the most friendly stays I have ever found.
