One of the better HI hostels

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jul 15, 2019via mobile
We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. The good things were two large and well equipped kitchens, a nice onsite restaurant, good lounge, hot showers, clean rooms and bathrooms, and wonderful location in Lake Louise village. Not so good were the small rooms which could be warm and stuffy during warm days.
I think the only people who will be disappointed here are those expecting a hotel experience when it is a hostel. The staff were nice and helpful and the other guests were a diverse group of ages and nations. It is important to book months in advance for the summer and the private rooms go fast. Overall one of the nicest hostels I’ve stayed in and I’ve been to a lot.

    Jordan our tour guide was fabulous.. funny and knowledgeable... a very pleasant young man. Trip to glacier was awesome and better than expected... you actually get to walk on the glacier ! A wonderful experience.

    Stopped here for one night, good food, beer and facilities and there was free WiFi! One thing we disliked was that the brown duvets without covers on them on the beds didn’t appear to get cleaned between guests. I took mine to the laundry basket and I was told it didn’t go in the laundry (?!)

    We had never stayed in a hostel before. HI Lake Louise exceeded expectations in many ways. Our rooms were configured so that we only shared a bathroom with our group and didn’t have to go down the hall. Overall cleanliness in rooms, bathrooms, showers and public areas is kept to a high standard. The bed was comfortable and the shower had good force and lots of hot water. Towels are a decent size. Staff were on hand to answer questions as needed. The attached café had great breakfasts and outstanding hamburgers. We didn’t cook in the kitchen but there were big fridges and a microwave to store and reheat food.

    The beds are comfortable and everything was clean. The restaurant on site was delicious and great value, we ate there both nights of our stay. The hostel had a good amount of parking and felt very safe. The staff were all very friendly
