Loved staying in the eco cabin. Jen and Joc were lovely hosts. The cabins were beautiful and had everything we needed. We visited in winter and hiked all over the park. They welcomed our dog and had a lovely dog too. Lovely design of the cabins and they thought of everything you could possibly need in the kitchen.

We have stayed here several times before, both in a lodge room and in one of the out buildings, and have been very happy with our accommodations, the property, amenities and of course, the wonderful hospitality of the owners. Most recently, we enjoyed a few nights in one of their cabins, located across the street from the main lodge. Beautiful... More

This hostel is located on the Oxtongue River near the west gate of Algonquin Park. The beds are comfortable and linen and towels are supplied. The kitchen is very well equipped with all the utensils you can dream of. There are 2 dining areas inside, picnic tables outside and propane bar-b-ques. It also has outdoor fire pits. I have stayed... More

I escape Toronto to enjoy some wilderness and fire pits. In Wolf's Den the manager is an unprofessional lady who comes at 1100pm and doses the fire in a provocative and rude way even if she sees a very quiet group sitting and enjoying the last 15 minutes of a dying fire. No matter what the regulations say she showed... More

I wish I'd planned in more time for the Algonquin portion of the trip! I spent 2 nights at the Den, but could have stayed for a week! It's an amazingly relaxed atmosphere with old style bunkhouses as the main accommodation. Having stayed in a lot of city accommodation previously on the trip, it was refreshing to find a place...

Excellent facilities, clean and very comfortable. The lounge upstairs in the main house is the perfect spot to relax and meet others. Jen and Jacques are fantastic hosts, they make you feel welcome and at home, like you're visiting with good friends :) Kitchen is fully and completely stocked, with more than enough room in the fridge for your food,...

I booked the Beaver Cabin for 6 people. There were some changes in our plans but the owners didn't mind at all that the booking went from 6 to 4 people. They were really accommodating and kind (even when we arrived late). The hostel provided towels and linens, coffee/tea and all dishes we'd need for cooking. Everything was very clean... More

Great Prices... but you get what you pay for. The kitchen (when we were there) was overcrowded with both peoples' foodstuffs and people trying to cook. With their children underfoot, it was all the more challenging. Also... there is very limited indoor space to relax and the furniture is very uncomfortable in the lodge. Add the fact that there is...

The Wolf Den Hostel And Nature Retreat, on Highway 60, very close to Algonquin Park, gets guests from around the world, and they love this all-Canadian gem of a hostel. The main building features a beautiful all-wood interior and a communal kitchen that cannot be beat. The rooms are basic, compared to a five star hotel, but fancy, compared to... More
