Stayed here one night. Front desk staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean. Close to Whyte Ave where there are plenty of restaurants. They were undergoing renovations while I was there so some facilities and amenities were unavailable. To compensate for that they gave us 10% off in addition to the HI member discount.

HI Edmonton First of all I arrived downtown and had to find my way to the hostel which was a task in itself. After few trains later and a walk from the university I finally found the hostel, compared to Calgary from where I just left it was quite far out of downtown and looked very run down and old....

Thanks for your comments. I'm sorry to hear we didn't meet your expectations. We are located in Old Strathcona - the arts and entertainment district. We are less than a 10 minute bus ride from Downtown. We are an old convent that was converted into a hostel. We are currently in the middle of a large renovation project, which will... More

I am fairly low maintenance; all I ask for is a clean bed, warm shower and no noise at night and that is what I got here. Mind you it may have been off season here that could have been a reason for it who knows but I enjoyed my stay here. Very close to Whyte ave, couple blocks from... More

I booked for 3 nights while I was running the Edmonton Marathon. I ended up staying for 2 more nights. One nice thing is that you can walk everywhere or take the bus. You really don't need a car. The place is very quiet except during the Fringe Festival. A great place to relax.

Review of a stay back in 2014. I was here for a conference at the University of Alberta and stayed three nights. The location was close to the university and nearby shopping was nice. Being my first stay in a hostel, I was not expecting anything great. The four bed room was clean and had a large closet where I... More

Stayed here during the Women's Football World Cup. had a great time, superb location to the night life of Whyte street while still far enough away to be quiet. Great facilities and well appointed dorm rooms. Bus stops are very close by and the trains (LRT(?)) and trams (street cars) not too far away either. Highly recommend for those on... More

It was an ok stay, the location is good, with buses you easily get everywhere, staff is very friendly, the place is big, good common area, game room, kitchen big enough. Rooms a bit small though, bathrooms ordinary but maintained, I'd say middle-ranked hostel.
