This hostel is $30 a night and has no competition and it shows. The owners don't care at all. They kids run it for a free place to sleep. The fridges are NEVER cleaned nor are the ovens. The cookware is scary garbage. The furniture is old, uncomfortable and dirty. The kids that work here try but really just a...

The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The common rooms are clean, comfortable and full of good people to ski and run amok with. There are powerful microwaves and ovens. The nightly rate includes shuttles to the base station. Last but not least you'll get unlimited entry to the local spa. This is essential to fully recover your legs if...

I had a wonderful time here and met some cool people. For those expecting a "perfect" hostel, go to expensive tourist towns Whistler or Banff. Revelstoke is where you'll find the hardcore boarders and skiers, and a small town feeling with humble accommodations!

There is no manager to help a relatively useless staff. Check-in took 20 minutes and constant apologies...I was the only person being helped. Smelly, dirty. Bed is fine, standard. Kitchen is small, dirty - workable but wash dishes first. Travelers are lovely, as always. Honestly - STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE. I stayed here because it is the ONLY hostel here... couch-surfing...

We stayed for 3 nights in winter. The hostel is close quarters which is difficult at first but you get used to it. The common spaces made us make friends because that was the only place we could get wifi. It was good because we got the low down on places we were going to later in our trip. I...

For years, a buddy and I stayed here because we were young, cheap and single. It's not the worst hostel I've stayed in by any means. It's got a good amount of cozy common spaces, big kitchens, and small dorm rooms with just a few beds. The layout in an old house is quaint. It's got typical curt hostel sevice...

Dirty, noisy, too small kitchen and staff that are doing the minimum. I actually saw one of them in his underwaer on the balcony(go figure what he was on) and other staff just smoking weed like it was normal. When you pass by the front desk they don't even bother stoping looking at there computer to say Hi or wish...

The hostel is not clean nor really dirty. Also, it is weirdly made. We stayed in the basement, which I found cleaner than the rest of the hostel where some of our friends stayed. I found it ok. It was a bit expensive to my taste. However, the staff was helpful and the give you free coupons to go to...

I stayed in a dorm for 2 nights. I arrived late after driving all day and was shown my room. They have a huge house that has lots of bedrooms. Showers and toilets are combined and there's a couple for each floor - I never had any issues or waits, although a little dirty (could use a wipe down at...
