This was NOT an amazing hostel the only reason it gets 2/5 is because all the staff were very nice and went out of their way to help you.
Main downfalls- tiny rooms packed with 6 people each/ location is awful/ needs a thorough clean/...More
Perfect for someone who doesn't mind being a little out of town, has some beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Stayed in a six person room but never had more than 3 in the room. Walls are a bit thin but didn't spend to much...More

Hi, all three of the snow resorts have transportation leaving from the town. Norquay is 10 minutes away, Sunshine is 20 minutes and Lake Louise is 40 minutes away. All three have their advantages and it's worth visiting all of them! The HI-Banff gives guests a free city bus pass, so you can take the transit right from outside the hostel to the snow bus hub and from there to your ski/board destination - plus it gives you transportation to a lot of the other local attractions for free.
