Joe took is in with open arms on a rainy night years ago. He showed us to out room, which was cheap and met our requirements. In the mornings we would go downstairs into the spacious and clean communal room and make pre-prepared pancakes. There was a cinema room, and a great bar. To me, this place was Fernie. I... More

Fernie is better known as a centre for winter recreation, so despite promoting summer recreational opportunities, it was very quiet when we visited in August. We took a private room with a double bed and bathroom. The room was adequate although quite warm at night (no fans or airflow). There is also a small television mounted on a bracket on... More

Stayed in Feb/March on a snowboarding holiday, the staff were really helpful and would go above and beyond. Really laid back atmosphere and great bar downstairs to meet people. Can be quite noisy but thats expected in a hostel. The kitchen area is good, yummy pancake breakfast every morning, although they need to invest in a tin opener! The dogs... More

Amazing staff, had some of the best memories in my life at the raging elk hostel. The bar has a great atmosphere and is situated just 5 minutes walk from the groceries and Main Street. So all and all great experience as I will be back here in future :)

We stayed at the Raging Elk when we first came to Fernie for the ski season, and it was a great place to start. The staff are really welcoming, the hostel is only a very short walk from town, and the bar is great - free pool and $3.50 pints. The kitchen is huge and was a good place to... More

My family and my sister's family stayed at the Raging Elk before Xmas to do some skiing. We had never stayed in a hostel before so were not sure what to expect. I like the concept of a hostel, but would not recommend this particular hostel. The hostel is run down and has seen its day. The kitchen is in... More

Decent enough place for what you pay for. Close to downtown, shuttle to ski hill, parking, and a pancake breakfast. Staff is helpful and fun. Had one issue and Caitlin went out of her way to fix. Rooms were a little cramped, 4 bunk beds sleeping 8 with little space. Could use more space to hang ski clothes. Overall a... More
