From talking to other travelers, sounds like I picked a good hostel! (Compared to ones in downtown Banff.) I know I can always count on HI hostels to be clean and comfortable. The attached restaurant was a great bonus! It was wildly convenient and the food was delicious.

Wir hatten ein 6-Bett Zimmer gebucht, wurden aber bei der Ankunft in einem 4 Bett Zimmer untergebrach und hatten uns schon über das Upgrade gefreut, da wir zu zweit das Zimmer für uns hatten. Allerdings ist uns im Nachhinein aufgefallen dass uns auch mehr berechnet wurde. Ich finde es nicht in Ordnung einfach die Buchung zu ändern bzw. mehr zu berechnen. Dennoch waren wir im Nachhinein über das Zimmer und die Unterbringung im MB Haus sehr froh.
