Although only stayed the one night here, would Definitely recommend staying here. The Hostel is joined to a massive lodge area with restaurant, and hostel facilities by a big decking. The upstairs and downstairs comprises a movie room, pool table, sauna, and laundry. The rooms are nice, with very clean bedding however setup so the upstairs part is almost like... More

We do not often stay at hostels, but this is easily the best one we have stayed in. It is rather expensive for a basic, small bedroom, but all accommodation in Lake Louise is expensive. The room was clean and comfortable. There were abundant communal showers and toliets and they were well maintained and clean. Plenty of room to lounge... More

We brought a baby here and had a great stay! Least expensive spot in Lake Louise but pricey for a hostel. Beautiful kitchen and on the second floor of building four is a great play room for kids! Seek it out if you have children!

We stayed here mostly on the suggestion of a friend who loved the adjacent Bill Peyto's Cafe. To be fair we had not stayed in hostel accommodations for several decades, and found the room a bit too basic for our tastes. However, it was clean and the shower and toilet outside the room were clean. The competition nearby did not... More

We were only there for the one night but don't have any complaints. We had a private room, shared bathroom, the room was nice enough and the bathrooms were clean and plentiful (toilet just outside, shared with one other room, showers and more toilets just down the hall). The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. The show stopper is the... More

I stayed here for a week snowboarding on a trip between Alberta and BC, really lovely clean and modern interiors. The restaurant downstairs is great, tasty and affordable food (better option than at the grocery store as prices are high!). The location is beautiful, great hikes nearby and easy to get to the ski hill. It is quite quiet, there... More

Spent two nights in the idyllically located hostel. The room was basic but perfectly acceptable. The freight train runs nearby but is not too disruptive. Plenty of car parking on-site and WIFI worked well (except during the area-wide blackout). There are plenty of options nearby for restaurants, snacks etc but the restaurant provides a superb selection of affordable, delicious food.... More

We stayed in a private room and the bed was made but when we pulled back the sheets there were pubic hairs, food crumbs and what we thought were dead bugs all through the sheets. When we talked to the manager he was useless and didn't even applogized to us as he was tucking in his shirt. It was very... More

This place was almost excellent. Three people arrived here at 9:15 in the evening before skiing Lake Louise and Sunshine. Went to Banff next day. The room was beyond expectations. Very cosy and clean. However... We arrived at 9:15 am in busy season. Hoped to have a beer. Not possible. The bar was closed. Dissapointing... Breakfast was toast. Lasted almost... More
