A jewel in the crown of the Rockies with it's undoubted star James the manager; a more interesting, conscientious and helpful person would be difficult to find. The location is fantastic with a brilliant walk near by past Angel glacier and a summit ridge through the meadows.

No shower, no running water and little electricity as in typical mountain hostels but it has been a great experience overall. There are 2 dorms of 16 beds, it is clean, and the kitchen is very well equiped. We have had a lot of very good tips for our trip.

Basic lodge. Both got a comfortable nights sleep. Hike to see Edith cavel was the best part. Lodge was well kept with all the basics you would expect. We were there with a large group so made use of the campfire.

We walked 1000 feet up all 7miles up the long winding snow covered road to reach the hostel which sits perfectly next to majestic mountains! :) You feel such a presence of wildlife here, as you know that you are the minority and the...

Stayed one night at HI-Edith Cavell. My friend and I left a little disappointed but only a little. We expected Edith Cavell to be quiet, but it was in fact booked full; to the surprise of even the host. The pros...The hostel is located in a beautiful area and the price was only $27/person/night. When we arrived there was a... More
