Driving into Fernie it was raining and the weather was showing it wasn't going to stop for a whole week so when arriving at the Raging Elk I spoke to the front desk staff and said considering the weather would it be ok if we only stayed for two nights even though we booked for three. They were really good... More

This is a really friendly place to meet people with an awesome bar, kitchen and hang out area and there are a bunch of long-termers staying out the season here. The rooms were warm (although there were pretty average thin, plastic mattresses). The WiFi is OK but tends to get overloaded and only supports skype when everyone is asleep. If... More

It was a great stay. The pub staff and drinks were fantastic and great place to meet up with people to head to the hill with. The people are really friendly, battery went dead over night and it was easy to find someone to give me a quick boost. Only downside is not much electrical receptacles in the rooms for... More

One of Fernie's gems. Friendly place that gives you an affordable home base to explore the area, winter or summer. The friendly little pub is great place to meet other travellers and pick the brains of locals on what to do and see in the area.

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 :)
