“Can't find this in Ontario”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

HI Lake Louise Alpine Centre is a modern and large hostel. We visited it with friend and were very well received.

The hostel is located a little from the centre, but can be reached by public transportation.

The hostel is fully and modernly equiped. The staff was friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. We got very good value for our money.

Room Tip: From what we experienced, there appear to be no 'bad' rooms.

This is by far the best hostel in Banff/Jasper parks!

Staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly and the building itself is stunning and full of character. The communal areas are decent and the best bit of all - it has a sauna! Perfect for relaxing after a day's slogging around the trails.

It is only a short 5 minute walk from Lake Louise village, where there is a small (and expensive) grocerers, coffee shop and all-in-one post/travel office.

The restaurant is very popular with locals, which is always a good sign. Food and service is very good.

I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in the area and would happily go back.

This HI was such a find. Clean, great rooms, exceptional bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and lovely outdoor areas to relax. We were greeted in such a friendly way (thanks Claire) and made really welcome. Easy to park and a walk from shops. We ate in the restaurant 1 night and cooked the other. Food was OK but service was tops. We were there on movie night, so watched the new Sherlock Holmes movie, and had fresh popcorn brought down to us...AMAZING. The common spaces are excellent too in both buildings.

The title of the reviews says it all: this HI hostel is fantastic under every aspect. Location is great, just at the core of all hikes and attraction. Rooms are big, clean and look like luxury mountain cabins. Toilets and showers are many and in excellent status. Common spaces are excellent, and the kitchen is huge with all utensils provided. I liked it very much.

A beautiful hostel, packed full of friendly punters with a bar that serves some dishes that are easily adaptable for vegans and cider. Clean rooms, a lovely outside area, easy parking and a great alternative to the overpriced hotels of Lake Louise.

This is a high quality, clean hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. Plenty of facilities, including an on-site bar and restaurant which was perfect for a cold beer on the deck after hiking in summer temps of 30 degrees! The 4 bed dorm rooms were compact but there was lockable storage space under the bunks and having a toilet/basin ensuite was great. Would stay here again.

Get off the highway and head toward L.L. Village, right at first stop and hostel is on the left...and what a big, beautiful place it is! Modern, with restaurant and travel help on first floor. Two bunk beds in each room, two rooms share a toilet and shower (in hallway). Campfires and other special activities in the evenings. It is well run, clean and I'd recommend it at any time of the year. Moraine Lake is a must see (less crowded that Lake Louise - a madhouse of congestion). Since it is so large and hotel-like, you will have to work harder to make connections with other travellers, if you, like me, enjoy that part of the hostel experience.
