The Hostel just went though a major remodel. Looks and feels great. Staff courteous and very helpful. After full day of skiing, coming back to hostel being able to relaxing and playing darts was a treat.

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... More

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... More

Stayed here in January to ski at Red. We had read the dodgy reviews but were on a budget so thought we'd give it a try anyway- and we were really glad we did... We thought the earlier reviews were a bit unfair actually - yes, it's not a five star hotel, but neither is the price! We received a... More

I stayed here for 1 month from December 2014 to January 2015. The hostel is in an excellent location, has a decent kitchen for cooking, a large locker in each room to keep personal belongings safe and the free shuttle bus to Red Mountain stops right outside the hostel. There is wifi, however it is quite slow. The hostel facilities... More
