Great place! Lovely people and very friendly owner with loads of helpful suggestions on things to do. Only complaint was it could have been a little cleaner, and the shower didn't have a proper head on it. I would definitely come back though!

Hi thanks for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay & hope to see you back some day. Sorry the hostel wasn't up to its usual cleanliness standard; as I'm sure you guessed ski season had ended & the hostel was gearing up to close for renovations; no excuse as every guest should be entitled to the same standards...

Originally I'd booked my "me time" ski weekend (the purpose of which was to discover a resort I'd yet to experience myself) at Castle Mountain Resort near the Crowsnest Pass, and I had my accommodations and private lesson booked and ready to roll. But, alas, 12 days before I was supposed to go, poor Castle had to shut down early... More

Spent a week staying at the hostel. The rooms were plain, but super clean and beds were comfy. The crew at the hostel did fun group activities like 5 pin bowling! Close to Kicking horse. Thanks Tanya! -Adam and Matt

Had to stay here at the last minute as other places were all booked up. Was greeted by very friendly and welcoming staff, who made sure I was introduced to other guests and knew my way around town. Told me everything I need to know. The hostel is mostly clean, but there isn't a lot of space to sort your... More

Hi there, thankyou for taking time to register with Trip Advisor in order to write a review for the hostel. Most people love the beds & comment on the comfort of their mattresses; I have been aware of the bed you were in & its need to be changed so apologies that it did muck up your sleep. It has... More

Initially planned to stay for one night, ended up staying 4 nights. :-) The owner Tanya is super friendly and gives the right vibes to the hostel. Her passion for mountains and skiing is addictive. Hostel is clean and has nice homey feel. You even get free ear plugs. ;-) It seems like the hostel attracts similar types of people...adventurous... More

The kicking horse hostel is the cutest little place you could ever want to stay. It is an older building with lots of character and has a very homey feel, which is only added to by the lovely tonya who runs the hostel. It has a great location and everybody is incredibly friendly. Expect to want to spend all your... More

I was staying in town and heard this was a good place to meet people. Upon arriving i felt like this was the place i needed to be staying at and proceeded to book the rest of my time there. Very relaxed vibe, people are very open to conversation, there is a camp fire which has been a great way... More

I stayed 2 nights at the hostel, not having any plans for the weekend or any expectations. I ended up spending all of my free time in the evenings there because I was having so much fun around the campfire with the other guests. The hostel is an older building, but it's clean and there is a fully functional kitchen... More

we stayed just one night at the kicking horse hostel and we loved it. Tanya is amazing, an entertainer, helpful and efficient. I have allergies to cat fur (there are a few kicking about) so i asked if the room could be cleaned, we left for 1h (beer stop!) and when we came back everything had been washed, vacuumed and...
