If you spend time in the Rockies, a wilderness hostel is a must. Mosquito Creek hostel is one of a few up the Icefields Parkway, but having only stayed in this one I can't comment on the others! We spent a very enjoyable 2 nights here in June. We booked a private room, and found it very comfortable with plenty of room and bed choice! The facilities are basic but what do you expect?! There was running water, LED lights, a pretty well stocked kitchen and pit toilets. There is also a wood-heated sauna, with its own pludge pool (ok it's the creek but it certainly cools you down!). Alan, the guy running it when we were there is a font of local hiking and activities, so make sure you tap him up for ideas! And to illustrate the wilderness bit, a black bear strolled through the camp just before our arrival! If you only stay for a night, it's a great experience.
