This was my first time staying in a dorm. The kitchen area was large and great to use, plus a really nice common area upstairs that was beautiful. There was another lounge area and a sauna in the basement that are great places to utilize. The hostel was quiet at night which was nice for a hostel. However I found...

It's a youth hostel. It is inexpensive. You come here to sleep, not live. That said, will snow across the roof and the grounds, its pine timbers/logs construction makes it pictureque. A great relaxing area upstairs. Restaurant was actually not that flash (see someone else's comment below). Love the soap dispenser, and having a shower caddy. Shower rose is a...

We came to ski lake louise and booked at the Alpine center which was a huge experience. We met a lot of great people and rested well. The beds were clean with a bathroom in our room. Showers are across the hall.Go make yourself known because the people staying there wish to visit and be friendly.

What a little slice of heaven this place was. The food was the best, and the staff were equally as good. This has to go on your list of places to eat when in the area. You will not regret it. I can not wait until I get the chance to go back.

I may be biased from staying at hostels in many other countries, but this is the nicest one I've stayed at. Multiple showers per floor, clean linen and a FULL communal kitchen so you can save money on cooking your own food!

Stayed with family, 11 of us including 2 kids and a toddler. Arrived and checked in only to find the rooms being painted. On a Saturday. At check in time. Couldn't believe this would happen on a busy weekend. And that they'd put kids in a freshly painted room. The staff member who was painting said she'd be done in...

Affordable place to stay with all the facilities you need. nice cosy place to stay. There is a lovely sauna to relax in and the restaurant serves nice food. I came here with a friend and we had a very comfortable stay. The staff were very friendly and gave us a lot of advice.
