We have stayed several times in this hostel. It attracts young and old alike with dorms or private rooms. There are two buildings. The new building often has young families in it and there are some nice public areas outside the rooms. The old building is abuzz with travellers, kids, teens. It's harder to find a quiet place to read.... More

Spent a night here while climbing waterfall ice in the Rockies. It's a comfortable hostel with a helpful staff and a really nice common room. The self-catering kitchen was very crowded when we were there, but it was 7 pm on a Saturday so that's probably as bad as it gets.

We stayed three nights mountaineering in the region. Unfortunately, some people with other activities were sharing our room, and not allowing us to sleep a a reasonable time. The receptionist should takd this into consideration and putting all bar flies in the same bunk. The mattress was too old.

Thank you for your review and comments. We will use them to help improve our hostel. Sorry we didn't quite meet your expectations. We are aware of the condition of some of our mattresses - we are working hard to gain approval for new ones. In the past month we have been able to secure a number of better mattresses,... More

Stayed in a 6 bed dorm - was comfortable enough. The private rooms were a bit out of our budget. Large communal areas - always something going on in the evening. Large kitchen - good facilities. They offer free walks - we were there in the winter and went on a great snowshoeing walk through the woods to Lake Louise/onto... More

I did a Trans-Canada-Roadtrip and stayed in probably 20 hostels all over the country. This hostel was the best of all of them! While quite pricey in peak season, the off-season rates of 30 CAD for a 4bed dorm are very reasonable for the area! Location is as central as the very small Lake Louise gets. The rooms are very...

Lake Louise is generally quite an expensive place to stay. We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom and found the rooms to be small but comfortable and there is a toilet/basin for every two private rooms. Kitchen was spacious and well-equipped and most importantly I found everything to be clean. Noise of people moving about and talking as... More

This is a lovely hostel in a idyllic location. Lake Louise is magnificent and whilst I loved so much about this area, I can't recommend this hostel (if you are looking for a reasonably priced private room). After staying in lovely b&b's in banff and jasper (for around $75 plus tax), this room (just under $100) was way overpriced and... More

I lived at this hostel for almost 2 months and can say it was probably the best 2 months of my life. I really get upset when I read reviews criticizing the fact that it is basically a HOSTEL, I mean its pretty ignorant in my opinion to stay at hostel and complain you had communal showers, or other people...

Stayed here 3 nights in a dorm room, only 4 beds in the room which is great, even better there is a toilet and sink in every room! And a communal shower out in the corridor with amazing water pressure. I thought it was a good set up. Kitchen was big, plenty of space for lots of people to cook.... More

I planned a trip with 3 days of hiking in and around Lake Louise. I just didn't want to pay the crazy rates, even in the off season, so I thought I would try the HI Hostel. Check in was easy and the place was clean and well maintained. My room was a 4-person dormitory style. Community showers and wash... More
