The hostel is a good for people on a budget. It has a kitchen for those wanting to self cater and a reasonably priced restaurant. If self catering, bring as much of your own food as possible, as the grocery store in Lake Louise village is very expensive. There are many wonderful hiking trails in the area. Book early, as...

This was the worst hostel I have stayed in so far. Due to them having no availability in female dorms, I stayed in a mixed 4 bed dorm (when I raised this with staff, they did say there were some female dorms available which weren't shown on the website! I was then told I should have asked so I would...

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.

This hostel can accommodate all sorts of people from families with children, grandparents and young adult back packers!! It's also...
