This hostel is well situated as a base for various hiking trips in the area. The hostel itself has great facilities, including a hot tub to soak in after a day in the backcountry, and the staff working there are friendly and hospitable. Would recommend!

Great hostel! Close to many great hikes and short distance to Nordegg for supplies. Very clean and spacious. Large kitchen is perfect for travelling with a group and the hot tub is perfect after a long day of hiking. The manager is very friendly and accommodating. Perfect mountain hostel!

Excellent Location, amazing facilities and a fantastic manager who goes out of his way to help everyone staying there have the best experience that they can. It also has a hot tub surrounded by the forest. Who could ask for more than that?
