HI Banff
Great place to stay. It's a fair walk to the town but regular buses stop just outside the hostel. We had a private en-Suite room which was great. Trips to the kitchen for coffee were no problem. The laundry was useful except that the iron didn't work properly. There are plenty of little corners to sit, read a book or write a postcard.

Comfortable stay in Banff
We had one of two private rooms with en suite bathroom. It was fine. The hotel also offers free use of their monthly bus passes, a great amenity for going downtown to shop or dine.

Nice option in Banff
Clean, comfortable room at a reasonable rate. Most of the rooms here are hostel style, but we got one of the two private, en suite rooms. They also included free use of two bus passes.

Ok for the price
As a hostel it is fine. You get What you pay for. It would have fine to know that towels were not included.
