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... More

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... More

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. Bathrooms were very clean and great showers! WiFi at the hostel was great and the free international phone was also useful. The common area was comfy. Would... More

I stayed at the hostel for two nights with my friend while we were backpacking across the US and Canada. Let's just say, our time at the Wicked Hostel was simply amazing. We got to meet so many great people who were in the same situation as us, as we were heading north to Banff and Lake Louise after Calgary.... More

This is pretty much the only good quality hostel in Calgary! It's location is pretty good, a little walk from downtown and round the corner from a shoppers. The room was clean and the bed comfy. However, there were no lockers to put your valuables in which we missed. The bathrooms were clean and had everything you needed. Breakfast was... More

Prices and location are good. It is a friendly environment, with clean and big washrooms and a nice kitchen and living room. They have female-only bedrooms, which I prefer when travelling alone. Overall, I recommend.
