If you're looking for a place to stay in Field then look no further! Great hostel and only a 2min walk from the truffle pig restaurant/bar which will delight you aswel! Great kitchen and lounge, with lots of books and games

Fireweed is an amazing spot to stay in Field. My friend and I rocked up on a cold night and were the only guests but we were welcomed and the fire had been set for us, ready to crank. Spotlessly clean, well equipped kitchen, cosy lounge, comfy beds and nice bathrooms. And its conveniently located just across from the pottery... More

I spent the summer of 2012 and 2013 working at the Fireweed Hostel and Mt. Stephen Guesthouse. While I never spent a night in either I can say both properties are absolutely beautiful and well kept. I really enjoyed my time working in Field. Field is a charming little mountain town perfectly situated to explore Banff, Yoho, and Kootenay National... More

The Fireweed Hostel was very clean and located centrally to many great sights. The hostel looks brand new and is extremely well maintained. It has quality facilities such as a large kitchen and common room with a fireplace (as well as central heating), it was definitely a cozy home away from home. The town of Field is small but charming,... More

Our family of 5 booked two rooms here - one for my husband and I and another for our teenagers. We could have all fitted into one room but it would have been a very tight squeeze. Booking the two rooms for our own use made it a little bit expensive but we decided it was worth it for the... More

Cute little hostel in the hart of field! A bit noisy during the night if you have a room facing the train tracks. Big kitchen and shared living area. Hostel was clean and had friendly staff! Unfortunately we could only stay here for one night.. but would definitely recommend staying here.

We stayed here for just one night but were amazed by how nice it was - certainly a hidden gem. Unfortunately we had not brought supplies to cook, which was disappointing for us as the kitchen was so beautiful. The hostel is decorated to a standard I would dream of in my own home and has everything you could need.... More

A very cute little hostel in Field, and the nicest hostel I've been in. Very tidy and clean Owners are lovely, welcoming, and very helpful. Solid wood bunks, very comfortable, nice duvets. Most of the shared rooms have double bunks on the lower part (i.e. good for couples). Shared living area has a fully equipped kitchen. Also has bbq, fire... More
