    We stayed at the YMCA hotel for one night (we had been camping the other nights) and without a doubt it's the least expensive place in Banff and at least half the price of a hotel room. The room was very clean, modest and simple...More

    You can't beat the price for what you get at the YWCA. We had a private room for half the price of any hotel on the weekend. The room was clean, the wifi was good. Breakfast and dinner are offered in an onsite cafe and...More

    Good: The basic fundamentals of the room were as promised - 2 double beds and a private bathroom. The location is also great, being just on the outskirts of downtown Banff. They also offer free wi-fi. Bad: There were so many little things that happened...More
