Incredible small hostel tucked away off of Icefield Parkway road. No electricity or running water but this adds to the experience as you endulge in the natural beauty of this place. Great staff, assisted us via email and phone all prior to our arrival to change dates without extra charge. Josh is great too, very kind and helpful. Lovely place!

If you are looking for fancy, this is not the place for you. This is a rustic wilderness hostel, with outhouses, no running water, and heat/lighting provided by propane. If you want the heating adjusted or a lamp lit you need the manager to do it. That said, this place is in a gorgeous location and we had a great... More

The Beauty Creek Hostel is a rustic gem. This is a true wilderness hostel. Heat and cooking is from propane heaters and light is by gas lamps. Drinking water is provided by jugs but washing water comes from the river. Grey water has to be carried to the outhouse. We were a group of 9 and the manager put us... More

Never seen a ping pong table with a log for a net. The big outdoor fire pit is a real bonus when the forest fire risk is not too high. It's a typical older hostel with visitors from all over the world. While not luxurious, it provides the space and facilities that you need while on the road with your... More

The manager here was really weird. He chose to have the female dorm connecting with his room -he could have easily made it a male dorm. There are no signs telling you but you MUST NOT use the sink for anything, including brushing teeth or dish washing (even in a separate container). The heaters must stay on all night -... More

I didn't see a winter review here, so I thought I'd write one. This place is magical in the winter as we used it as an ice climbing base for a couple of nights in January. The bonus is we had the entire place to ourselves. The heat in the dorms and the common area was more than adequate with... More

Such a beautyfull, peacefull place, simple, but clean and cosy. You can find everything, what you need to be happy and to enjoy nature. Brian is a faithfull, but easygoing host. He understands how to deal with groups or individuell travelers and to give them some "home-feeling".

Spent two nights here, could have stayed all week!! The location was just superb, right on the river and with so much great hiking and sightseeing nearby. I was expecting to be really roughing it, but in actual fact it's very well equipped considering it's a 'wilderness hostel'. The kitchen has gas cooking facilities and a large fridge for food...

I've stayed at HI Beauty Creek twice and both times my expectations have been exceeded. The location is ideal and Brian makes sure that his guests are happy and comfortable. It was great to relax in the hammocks, explore the pond in the awesome row boats and play a few intense matches of ping pong (Brian not only makes amazing... More

It was serendipitous that we booked this hostel on the one rainy night during our trip. However, if you find yourself in rainy weather and don't feel like tent camping in the freezing rain you can simply stop by this hostel to check for open beds. A few notables: 1. The hostel manager, Brian, is an accommodating and nice guy.... More
