Jasper's HI is located a little on outside of Jasper Village and can be reached by (shuttle) bus. If you are going there on foot, it is a good uphill walk from the highway. Should you arrive on bicycle, you have my sympathy, it is rather a steep uphill.
The hostel is located nicely in that you are right in nature and away from the commercial atmosphere that is present in Jasper. On the whole the hostel is basic. It has a large well equipped kitchen, the usual dorms and (at least) two private rooms. Our stay, and that of our friends was in the private rooms. Both rooms were a pleasant experience, they were clean and functional.
All rooms shared common male or females washrooms and showers downstairs. The hostel has laundry facilities and if you also have a yen for tv time, there is a room downstairs stocked with videos.
On the main floor there is the common room. At times it felt as if there were not enough chairs and tables, but that only came about when every one decided to prepare their food. The common room also is well stocked with games and books for reading.
We were well received and even alerted to the fact that we were expected a day or so before we were due.
