Centrally Located, easy access to everything, C-train only a few hundred meters away, front desk staff very friendly knowledgable and helpful. Hostel is very clean and offers a free breakfast everyday. It is a great place for travelers to get their bearings and jumping off point to find work if desired. As in any major city this is downtown and... More

Just a block and half from the free downtown train that takes you to all parts of downtown. A 5 minute walk from Fort Calgary and a 10 minute walk from the zoo. However, near by buildings are a little run down and homeless hang out around them.

Service at the front desk was terrific, kitchen is big and clean and free wifi is always welcome. Fair to say my expectations were high reading the reviews on here. I was sadly disappointed. Sure the location is central, somewhat? The C train is handy, but I wouldn't feel comfortable letting the girlfriend venture around at night near the hostel.... More

HI-Calgary Host... M, Manager at HI-Calgary City Centre, responded to this review

Thanks for staying with us and giving us your feedback. We do have quiet time that we enforce so that all guests will have a peaceful sleep. During your stay there were a couple of rowdy guests who were not being respectful of the quiet time. I've asked our night auditors to monitor and perform more regular checks of the... More

I was at first hesitant when my boyfriend booked in this hostel when we visited Calgary. The manager was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived very early and offered us breakfast while waiting for our time to check-in. They offer muffins, bananas, orange juice, pancakes and all day coffee. This hostel is very close to the city centre and... More

We stayed at the hostel for 4 nights in a dorm, and besides the noisy room mates, we had an excellent stay! Free breakfast, free wifi, lovely game/tv room, close to town and great service! The beds were maybe a bit uncomfortable since the wooden frame was leveled with the mattress, but otherwise it was all good!

This HI is in a strange area as there seems to be a lot of construction work and car parks! However, it's only a short walk to downtown so no major issue. We had a private double with ensuite which was big, clean and comfortable. The staff are really friendly and the price includes a great self-serve breakfast including do... More

The location is great - in downtown Calgary, only 3 minutes by walk to C-train's city hall station. The service and facility are good - free coffee, free breakfast, pc and internet in the main floor (with very reasonable fee), shower, flashlight, etc. The front-desk staff (Danny, a guy from Quebec) is very friendly and helpful. They also orginize trip... More
