Beds were nice, clean and comfortable. We were in Wicked Hostel two nights. Outside it didn't look nice and we didn't even see it when we drove by. Reception was really small and weird. People working there were nice! If you like meeting new people and being with a lot of people, this is your place. Other visitors were nice,... More

When i arrived I was wondering if I would like it, but finally I just LOVE it! The hostel is close of several places (parks, restaurants, casinos, in front of the train station and shoppers). It is a nice place, positive energy EVERYWHERE!!!. You will find friendly and kind people. Free and delicious breakfast!.

** Just like to start saying that I've come to the conclusion that the people who have written negative reviews on here about Wicked Hostels complaining about the most bizarre and quite frankly stupid (ie; complaining the staff do your washing for FREE and you cannot do it yourself, REALLY?!) are the same people who complain about every little facet...

The hostel building is in a good location and it's warm, clean and pleasant. All of the facilities are good and it has some perks that some places don't have, 24hr kitchen with oven, free phone for local or international calls (just not to cell phones), free washing, computers and tea and coffee. The building itself is good but the... More

What on earth is a guest worker? Do you mean a Working Holidaymaker? I'd estimate about 75% of backpackers coming through the hostel year-round are on a Working Holidaymaker VISA. That's how I travelled for 4 years working to supplement your travels. We have a 14 day maximum stay in place so not sure who these people were. Thanks for... More

We had such a fantastic time at Wicked hostel. We were there for they Calgary stampede, so it was a perfect location. We meet great people there and the staff were all so friendly. Best breakfast also. The rooms aren't massive but who really spends that much time in there room.

The hostel does a good job of telling you if you want a nice nights sleep to not chose them. I appreciate that. I can sleep through anything and was quite surprised that my entire room was all tucked in and passed out before midnight. Of course, we had been chatting and enjoying beers respectfully since 5pm. I met some... More

Hey mate, Thanks for the review. You actually met me in the common room but didn't know who I was, most people don't because I'm just a backpacker like anyone else. As for my replies, its directed at the non-backpacker guests who whinge about menial things or the noise in the hostel. You'd be surprised how many non-backpackers come to... More

Ideally located for the hockey (5min walk to Saddledome) and being right on 17th Avenue (plenty of restaurants, bars & boutique shopping), this was a great place to stay for my birthday weekend with friends. Being only 2 stories tall and having approximately 70 beds total (selection of private rooms, or rooms sleeping 4, 6 or 8) the general atmosphere... More

I enjoyed my staying in the Wicked. I felt free to do whatever I wanted. The employees were cool, the bed was comfortable, the bedroom and the lines were clean. They offer towel, a good internet wi-fi and free calls up to 30 minutes per day for whereever you want.
