Arrived at the parking lot just off the highway, loaded our supplies onto the sleds, and walked a hundred or so meters to the camp. Very rustic and natural--a cool place to experience natural winter conditions in the mountains. We were two families in the private cabin, each with a bedroom that accommodated up to five people. The common area... More

We were originally planning to camp but then had bad weather. This wilderness hostel doesn't have electricity or running water, but has a generator for lights. The common areas are very warm and the cabins (dorms) are too. All linen is provided. Compared to camping it's much easier and not at all expensive!

We only stayed 1 night at the Mosquito Creek Hotel but it was really nice. Even if there is no water & electricity, rooms are very clean and the fire pit is a plus. I'd recommend to anybody looking for an accomodation in the middle of the nature

Me and my husband booked a private room. The room was big enough to accommodate up to 5 people. There is one double bed with a single bunk on top and another set of single bunk beds. The linens/blankets/pillows are provided. The room was clean. The private room is coupled with another private room at the other end of the... More

A big group of us stayed here over new years and it was fantastic! I had expected much more basic conditions but the kitchen, lounge and dorms all had lights (no charging sockets) and the host would turn on the WiFi for brief periods if you ask nicely. The kitchen was really well stocked and there are fridges and a... More

We had heard that this hostel was very basic and rustic. We were... More

I'm traveling with my 7 years old son and must say that it was a great experience to stay at the hostel. It's better than camping and very clean for a wilderness hostel. As 'city family' we mists just a locker for our personal stuff but I certain believe the very kind and hospital hostel manager about the safety of... More

Even though there's no wash facilities I totally loved this place. Good kitchen facilities, common room, comfy bed with lots of blankets and the toilets are new and in good condition. Everything is well maintained and the location is just amazing. The only thing I wish it had was an area to wash/clean your teeth that wasnt the kitchen. Washing... More

We booked a private room (2 adults, 2 kids). There are 2 rooms, at either end of a cabin with a full kitchen. The accommodations were perfectly fine. Brand new outhouse is totally spotless, smells of nothing but cedar . We ended up cooking and hanging out in the main lodge, which is very well equipped. Kitchen, lounge with fireplace,... More

We stopped here for one night before heading to Banff. I was a great chilled spot by the creek. First thing I did was get the sauna cranking and we spent most of the night in and out of the sauna and the creek! Fantastic!! The "lodge keeper" Andrew, was very friendly and gave us some good tips on the... More
