We spent 3 nights in a double room. The room itself was small but clean. The shower and toilet was shared with another room, but all clean and adequate. Large kitchen area, mostly well equipped. The only thing lacking is any microwave safe dishes (common problem!). Lots of tables and seating though. The lounge area was nice, with ski lodge... More

The only reason I am giving this hostel a poor rating is due to its inability to manage large groups that visit this hostel. It was very frustrating that a large group pretty much took over the hostel while I was here and the group extended little courtesy to other guests. Here are some examples of this group's bad hostelling... More

This place is run by Hostelling International. Service at the front desk is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are small, somewhat cramped but clean. There is a great sitting room with huge fireplace and overstuffed couches. This is a super place to swap stories, lies etc. with fellow travelers. This huge log room has a wonderful atmosphere, and brings... More

We stayed here for only one night for exploring the Banff nationalpark. The HI Lake Lousie is in best location for doing so. Located in great and pure nature you have the endless forest around you. The rooms are clean and big enough for spending a few nights. The stuff was very friendly and helped us to pick a great... More

The Hostel is more like a Hotel, the rooms are brighter than usual (you can Actually stand in there), each room includes a own bathroom and the showers are in seperate rooms too. Very clean and has a great athmosphere! Only disadvantage is the railway right next to the Hostel.

We arrived at around 7pm on Sunday night after a long flight, bus ride and minus our luggage, so were a tad grumpy; the check in staff were brilliant! They checked us in swiftly and our friends (also staying there) showed us to our room. The room was adequate it was clean tidy and had plenty of room for our... More

We enjoyed our stay in the hostel. The room was small but neat and clean. We were spending little time in our room anyway. The common spaces are very open and beautiful lodge style, much nicer than your average hostel. Sauna was a nice treat after a day of hiking. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were disappointed that we... More

Four of us checked into a dormitory for one night, which consisted of two bunks. There was a loo and basin in the room and three shower rooms opposite. It was very functional, with very comfortable beds and lovely public areas. I highly recommend it to passing travellers.

We spend our first two nights in the Rockies at this hostel and loved every minute of it. The area is spectacular and the hostel is extremely well equipped. We had a private double which was small and clean and shared a toilet with only one other room - and had ample shower facilities just across the hall. Overall a... More

My husband and I stayed here in a private double room for just one night (luckily). Hostel was clean friendly and well equipped but our bed (double on the bottom of a bunk as you often get) was very uncomfortable. It felt like it was on a tilt and you spent the whole night trying not to roll out. We... More
