From outside I was a little bit worried about quality. But It was the best hostel I've ever been in. Reception is 24/7 and they showed me whole hostel including local practics. Free wifi, free breakfast- very rich (cereals, eggs, waffles, ingredients to make pancakes, fruits, hot and cold drinks). I used common frindge and lock luggage in safe when...

Was planning to stay here just few days and ended up staying few months. Jeff was great guy always making the guest feel welcome with nights out to clubs and movie nights at the hostel. Free morning breakfast was nice.

This hostel is very friendly & social. The common area is small enough that you get to know people right away. I was there on Thanksgiving & the staff made dinner for everyone. If you want peace and quiet, get an upstairs room, as there's usually a party vibe downstairs. There is an all-female dorm, but keep in mind it...

Really good value with free laundry, printing, photocopying, international phonecalls and breakfast all included! I stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm. The bed was super comfy and had a little locker by it for valuables. Showers are clean and there are towels you can borrow and hairdryers to use. The staff were awesome. Really helpful and friendly. There's the...

First time in a hostel all staff were friendly and helpful free pancakes and laundry and computer and a phone to make international calls on which I thought was a nice touch! Rooms are a bit cramped and warm but bearable location is a bit out from the centre but not that far to walk! All in all not a...

This hostel was well located, especially for the stampede. But it was clearly in a state of disrepair-showers were out of order, buckets were catching water and locks malfunctioned. The staff was really helpful through all of this, but there was only so much they could do.

I was visiting the stampede in Calgary in July 2016 and didn't do too much research before I left. Staff at the Wicket Hostel (Jan, Lisa, Alan) were super helpful, answered all my questions in detail and were able to please a German - not an easy job :-) This place feels more like family and just a place to...

We stayed for 2 nights, and had a great time. The staff were all very helpful and friendly (even do your laundry free of charge!). The rooms were pleasant and beds extremely comfy.
