Liked: The location was right in Banff Ave (very close to all the shops and nightlife). The breakfast had some good variety and the staff was very friendly. It would be a good idea to rent a car because the hostel is far from all the natural attractions.

Disliked: There weren't many events run by the hostel.

Liked: They offered free breakfast, had a good social area both inside and outside. They posted useful information for visitors about good restaurants and bars with a list of week night deals. The rooms were spacious.

Disliked: The privacy curtain did not go all the way around the bunk.

Liked: LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!! This place was the perfect location for the price, and really low key/quiet. Really, you get what you pay for. Don't expect something fancy, but for what you pay it's really a great deal and good, safe, clean place.

Disliked: Staff was so/so, parking is a bit tight, and there's a lot of rules, but didn't notice many of them enforced.

Liked: The atmosphere in the common area/lobby is wonderfully inviting. The hostel feels like a little community where all are welcome. The attached off licence liquor store offers super cheap beer as well as many spirits and wines. Because they have no attached bar you are welcome to drink in the common area, which people very commonly do.

Disliked: The top bunk was unreasonably close to the roof in certain rooms, but the beds were still very comfortable.
