Stayed here as part of a group, two couples and we were`nt disappointed. The Hostel itself has a ground floor self catering two bedroom apartment which is separate from the rest of the facility which we stayed in. What more can I say than that. There is a BBQ and Fire pit in which to use. The place was clean and well maintained. The town of Field is very small, there is a pub and a restaurant/shop. if you are staying here for a dew days stock up with food and beers before you get here, as choices are small.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom self catering unit is perfect

This small hostel is a definite step up from an inner-city hostel. It is cozy, with a great shared kitchen, clean facilities and mostly comfy beds. I personally loved watching the trains go by while eating breakfast on the balcony. Field is a tiny village, so pack accordingly, dress warmly for the mountains, and enjoy the view from the Fireweed. If you want first class valet service, expansive rooms, and to be called "sir", this hostel isn't for you. But if you enjoy the outdoors, meeting other people, and face life with a smile, then book here.

Pros: free wifi for guests, helpful summer-student staff who are passionate about the outdoors, warm down duvets in rooms.
Cons: sound-proofing between rooms isn't great, non-padded Ikea chairs in dining room.

The hotel is perfect to visit the Canadian Rockies. It is very close to Lake Louise and Yoho park. Field is a nice little town. The flat on the ground floor is great for a family and very clean. The garden has stunning views of the mountains. If you like trains, you'll be fascinated. The Field train station is litteraly in the back of your garden and you'll be able to see all the trans-Canada rail traffic and wave at passagers of the Rocky Mountainer. The host was very welcoming and gave us a discount to apologize for the unusual noise in the hotel that night.

We stayed in this hostel during our three-week-trip in Canadian Rockies in October 2011. Originally we were going to tent in a nearby campsite but luckily it was closed so we were made to stay in this hostel! We were going to stay just for one night but Craig (the owner) made us a good deal on price so we decided to stay for a couple of nights instead (thanks for that as the second night the temperature dropped below zero!). There were only a few other people in the hostel at the time of our stay so we had a room with 6 beds just for us two :) Craig was also very helpful with tips for hiking and we did probably our best hikes during our Canadian trip there!
The hostel is very clean and beds extremely comfy. There is a well equipped kitchen and a nice common room with a fire place and lots of books and board games. There are only one or two restaurants and a tiny shop in Field so make sure you bring enough food with you! There were lots of condiments in the fridge though so do not worry if you forget some bits.
As some other reviewers mentioned the hostel was right by a train station but we did not mind the noise at all. We were quite tired from our hikes and also the train whistle was accompanying us all the way through the Rockies so we actually missed it when we finally got back home!
We are planning another trip to Canada soon and Fireweed Hostel is definitely one of the places we want to visit again!!

We stayed for just one night and it was great. The common room and the patio had a nice view, with minimal highway noise. The bathrooms were oddly planned (seperate for toilet and shower). The night life is nonexistant, the bar across the street closes at around 6pm. The fridge also had lots of condiments and the rooms were quiet and clean. It is right next to the train tracks, the 3am train is a little noisy. Other than those (really trivial) problems, it is a great place to stay!

Room Tip: the burgess room, is the closest to the tracks. Won't choose that one next time
