The floors in this hostel are very clean, so walk around bare feet is nice but could get chilly in the evening. Bring sleepers with you. There is fireplace in the living room.

This Hostel was extremely tough to find. No signs off the main road so we drove back and forth for two-hours before finally locating the place. Once we did there were no lights on the building so we had to use flashlights to get to the door. We were greeted by other guests who then got the check-in person. He was nice and gave us basic information for the place but the dorm rooms were super hot and we were instructed not to touch the thermostat. We ended up only staying one night.

Budget meal tip

You need to be prepared to bring your own food but a quick trip to the supermarket in Banff is always a possibility.
