I did a Trans-Canada-Roadtrip and stayed in probably 20 hostels all over the country. This hostel was the best of all of them! While quite pricey in peak season, the off-season rates of 30 CAD for a 4bed dorm are very reasonable for the area! Location is as central as the very small Lake Louise gets. The rooms are very...

Lake Louise is generally quite an expensive place to stay. We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom and found the rooms to be small but comfortable and there is a toilet/basin for every two private rooms. Kitchen was spacious and well-equipped and most importantly I found everything to be clean. Noise of people moving about and talking as...

This is a lovely hostel in a idyllic location. Lake Louise is magnificent and whilst I loved so much about this area, I can't recommend this hostel (if you are looking for a reasonably priced private room). After staying in lovely b&b's in banff and jasper (for around $75 plus tax), this room (just under $100) was way overpriced and...

I lived at this hostel for almost 2 months and can say it was probably the best 2 months of my life. I really get upset when I read reviews criticizing the fact that it is basically a HOSTEL, I mean its pretty ignorant in my opinion to stay at hostel and complain you had communal showers, or other people...

Stayed here 3 nights in a dorm room, only 4 beds in the room which is great, even better there is a toilet and sink in every room! And a communal shower out in the corridor with amazing water pressure. I thought it was a good set up. Kitchen was big, plenty of space for lots of people to cook....

I planned a trip with 3 days of hiking in and around Lake Louise. I just didn't want to pay the crazy rates, even in the off season, so I thought I would try the HI Hostel. Check in was easy and the place was clean and well maintained. My room was a 4-person dormitory style. Community showers and wash...

Stayed one night in a private room while passing through on my way to Jasper. Beautiful little area. Room was largish with a bunk bed - double on the bottom, single on top, with a large locker. As most backpacker hostels it looked a little worn but it was clean and comfortable. Very quiet, and had different bunch of travelers,...

Absolutely loved my stay at this hostel. Staff were really nice and helpful at all times. The rooms were really nice and I had lots of my own private space. Showers were okay; although there weren't many, I never had to wait for a shower. The other common areas were really comfortable and welcoming. I also liked the fact that...

The only place to stay in Lake Louise! Very friendly helpful staff! Great rooms at a really good price! Minutes away from a Parks Canada information centre! Front desk, and housekeeping staff were amazing! Truly a great place to stay!

Spotlessly clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable rooms and excellent showers. An excellent kitchen with a good quality restaurant attached if you prefer! Location is excellent. Definitely recommended.
