denny_jo90 Very cosy feel. A warm place to stay with lovely areas to chill out in with open fires, wooden beams and comfy chairs. more like a hotel, highly recommended!
danielle.thomso The staff was very friendly and welcoming, it was a fun place with chances of lots of interaction with other travellers. Another bonus was it being very close to the main street on Banff so everything was easy access. I can't say much about the beds, but for what I paid I wasn't expecting anything spectacular. They weren't that great, but for a few nights it was fine. The only thing I would complain about is the fact that no towels or anything in the room for drying your hands after you wash them, bathmats for the bathroom or any towels for personal use. It was lucky I brought my own or I would have had to go buy one. If you're looking for a cheap stay and don't mind roommates for a few days, it's a great spot!

Sander Though this place is quite a ways out of the town center of Banff, as a YHA member you get a free bus pass, which makes things doable. (You'll have to memorize the bus schedule though, as the bus only goes every 40 minutes.) Staff is quite helpful and really listens to feedback - I filled in a comment card about unusable WiFi on my first day here (all ports were blocked), and that was fixed a few days later; similarly with missing knives in the kitchen. One warning: Don't stay here if you're over 1.90 meter long; that's how long the bunk beds are, and they're completely built in with slats all around, so you can't stick out your feet anywhere. After a week of sleeping in these beds I had serious back problems, and resorted to sleeping on the ground. (Also, apparently if you book a double room here, you have a high chance of _also_ getting a room with bunk beds; just a private one.)
