What an awesome place to stay in Fernie! Hostel with a soul and amazing staff. I have nothing to complain about, it's a friendly place to stay. I have fond memories of the months I spent there. Loved it!

i was having a very unpleasant evening heading back to my dorm my second day, when as i got closer i started to smell the odor of marijuana and got even more upset because how could staff let that happen, as i was thinking that one of the men yelled at me for to take a 'bong rip'. i then asked what that was and the man explained, i later then took a rip from a bong and my whole trip turned around for the better. Very thankful marijuana is used in and around ski resorts.

Hi Gonzalo, Thank you for your review we are glad overall you enjoyed your stay. We do have an absolute non smoking policy which includes marijuana. We do have signs posted and the staff and management will kindly ask our guests to leave if they are smoking in our facility. That being said we are happy that travellers from around the world can experience the new legalization in Canada, in other areas such as at the top of a mountain while enjoying epic views

This was our first stay at a hostel. Its definitely a bit rugged but we enjoyed ourselves. The reservation was screwed up so we had to stay in a dorm instead. No biggy, we just needed a bed for the night and had our expectations low. The price was right and everything was clean. The staff was friendly. There was a cat sleeping in the hallway which I found hilarious. The room was pretty warm. I would go back but wouldnt be staying for a long stay.

Hi, Thank you for your review with regards to staying at The Raging Elk Hostel we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us during your visit to Fernie. Yes the cat is adorable his name is pumpkin he sometimes sneaks in from our residence next door, as I think he likes conversing with the guests. But he's really not meant to be there. Just love the pic :)

It's a hostel through and through. There's good and bad and it's got all the usual sights, sounds... smells... of a hostel. But if that's just fine by you, the Raging Elk has charm, character, and a REALLY cool little private pub. There's not a reason in the world to pass up the Raging Elk if you're looking for a place to stay in Fernie. Beds are comfortable. Comforts are bare minimum, (room didn't have a roll of toilet paper, so I had to run and steal about 10 yards from the lobby) but adequate. It just depends how much you care. Price is affordable, although private rooms are not necessarily cheaper than alternatives. The real highlight of the Raging Elk is the fun bar. Friendly, well appointed, generous pours, and cozy ambiance. Don't shy away if you need a place to stay, but if you value comfort over cost, it might leave you wanting.

Stayed here for a couple of days late January. Well organized and clean. Friendly and dedicated staff. Home to an eclectic mix of clientele of all ages. Nice bar, well equipped kitchen and lounge area. As with all hostel culture, open minded and easy going definitely a prerequisite which means rigid hypersensitive boy scout ocd's prone to complaining better off staying away. Will definitely come back and recommend this venue to friends and family.
