Stayed for a night. First timer in hostelling. Staff were really friendly. Rooms were ok and had a good sleep, that is if you have nice quiet roommates. Apart from some super loud dudes way past the quiet time at 11pm, everything else was ok. Parking is a little bit tight..would have to depend on luck to get one. Sower... More

Thanks for your comments. I'm glad you found our staff very friendly and that you had a good sleep. We have 12 free parking stalls out back and if those are full, we can direct you to further parking options. We do have one washroom that still needs some up updating, but all of our other washrooms were renovated a... More

All staff were super friendly and accommodating and knowledgeable, the rooms were cleaned every day, and the location is fantastic! It's a little warm in the rooms, but hardly a deal breaker. If I'm in the area I would definitely stay again.

Helpful staff, when you need any information they'll try to do the best to simplify everything. Very clean rooms, kitchen and living room. There is a game room, it's seems to be a good place to spend some time, but from the rooms you listen almost everything if people isn't quite enough. One thing that i didn't like was the... More

I stayed at HI Edmonton for 12 days while in town for work. Very clean, super helpful staff, and amazing location. A more working than traveling crowd than most hostels, but still a great stay overall. I was in a six-bed dorm and found it very spacious and clean. My bed was comfortable as well. The kitchen was well organized... More

The lady who checked us in was very welcoming and friendly. We had chosen a private double room as we are a couple. We were disappointed that it was a double on the bottom, single on top bunk bed in the room as it made it very dark on the bottom bed for reading e.t.c. Also the room was not... More

Thanks for your comments. I'm pleased to hear our staff was welcoming and friendly. However, I'm sorry to hear about the situation of our maintenance person entering the room that day. I have spoken to him about this. And I have reminded our housekeepers of our high cleanliness standards and to be checking all lockers for discarded items. We have... More

Airport shuttle can get you there in around 30mins. Good location, 1-2 miles from University of Alberta. Staff are friendly and always willing to help! Everything is clean! Really good for solo travel. Will come back again!

A hostel with a bland feel in a bland city. The city only has one hostel and that is for the main reason, Edmonton is not a place to visit unless you are searching for work, which most of the people are. Or, people want to explore the vast and publicised West Edmonton Mall. Hostel: Check in was smooth, there... More
