We traveled in late December and arrived a couple of days before Christmas and stayed on for 16 days. Christmas day one of the managers, Clay, cooked an awesome Christmas dinner for all the guests in the Hostel. The roast turkey and veggies were the best. The lodge was well managed, lots of people having fun but no bad behaviour...

Stayed here for nearly 3 weeks and was very satisfied with the standard. Definitely the cheapest place in the area. Everything is keept very clean and tidy. Have stayed in back packers which are dirty and rarely cleaned however the bathrooms, kitchen and living areas were always well maintained. Plenty of areas to keep comfortable with Netflix etc. Only complaint...

Nice cozy hostel, liked it. Comfy beds, decent kitchen. Other travellers were quiet and respectful. However; Carl? Cliff? One of the managers of the place approached me and said the rudest, meanest things someone has ever said to me. He saw me sitting alone in the foyer, as my friends were in the kitchen, he came up to me and...

We have stayed in many hostels in different countries around the world and Mountain Shadow Hostel in Rossland is easily one of our favourites. Welcoming local staff, clean rooms/bathrooms and an easy going relaxing vibe. Pool table, darts, lots of TVs, everything you could want to relax after a day on the hill. Perfect central location with easy and quick...

Stayed here for a month and absolutely loved it. A relaxed and comfortable hostel with amazing staff. The manager David was more than happy to give tips for skiing Red and even offered me a lift down to the bus depot in Trail. This hostel was the perfect place to come back to after a day skiing or to just...

I stay at the Mountain Shadow Hostel at least several times each winter. I've been doing so for 7 years. The hostel is very clean, comfy, & ideally located in the heart of Rossland. The hosts/owners are awesome & very accomodating. Highly recommended!

My friend and I spent a week here, just as a place to stay while we went to Red Mountain and adventured BC, but it was so much more than we expected. As 2 girls we didn't know how it would feel, but we were so amazed. Every day we met a new person and felt more comfortable. The kitchen...
