Lake Louise hotels can book up early. We got the last two beds for the entire Village at about 2PM Friday on a long weekend. Clean, relaxed, safe and friendly. Spaces to hang out. Typical Hostel rooms. Kitchen facilities are available to cook your own meals.

We spent two nights here total, one at the beginning of our trip and one at the end, Having worked in Lake Louise in the past, I know full well how expensive the area is. All tourist destinations are, it's to be expected. With the addition of the Hostel to Lake Louise, it gives people of all income levels a... More

It costs double the HI Hostels in Central London, which still makes it the cheapest place to stay in overpriced Lake Louise. It's in Lake Louise Village, the tourist villlage 4 km from the lake itself. My single room was very basic, but adequate - bed and bed linen OK, shared bathroom OK. Towels are provided, toiletries are not. Secure.Check-in... More

The hostel is clean and the surrounding area is beautiful. Lake Louise is in the walking distance. Also, it is good to have a restaurant/bar in the hostel, especially there is no bar close to the hostel. Con's: food is quite expensive, poor Wi-Fi.

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
