So Raging Elk is a backpacker place, but they have a big range of rooms ranging from dorms to rooms with private baths. It's probably one of the cheapest places in town, but being Canada that still means you'll spend a fair bit. It's not fancy, but they keep it clean. They have some great 'extras' though. There is a...

This place is located just behind the Powder Mountain Lodge. We stopped in for a pre-dinner bevvy. Local crowd, hunters lodge decor, local beer. Service and bevvies were good. Note this is a CASH ONLY establishment.

Spent one night here in a dorm with friends last weekend during the Fernie Music Festival. Bathroom was clean...a few hairs in the shower but nothing too bad. Had to rent a towel for $1 but that was ok. They give you a free beer in the bar for staying there but I'm not a beer fan but still it...

Great place for a beer. Stopped by on the way home and sat on the lovely patio enjoying the view. Staff seemed nice and knowledgeable. Drinks were very reasonable and music was good. Fairly quiet when we were there. Looks like it would be a fun place when packed. No complaints.

The raging elk is a great place to stay. It is clean, the beds are comfortable and the employees are great. The hostel staff went above and beyond by helping to accommodate my travel needs (late check out).

the elk is a laid back and fun place to stay. its in downtown area so you can walk or bike anywhere, its got a great front deck and cheap cold beers. free pool in the bar. and the bar is only open till midnight so you can still get a good sleep when the party goers move on elsewhere.

Me and my friends spent quite a while in the Raging Elk Hostel in a Dorm Room and had an awesome time there! The hostel is perfectly located in Fernie. It's close to the main-street, many restaurants, parks, bottle shop ;-) and bus stop, also it's just a 5 minute walk to downtown. It is truly a backpacker hostel, which...

Spent 3 nights at the hostel, and wow what a great time ! First off everyone is so friendly here and happy to fill you in on all the happenings around town and events. I made my way to the bar the first night, and it has to be one of the most Canadian bars I've ever been in, totally...

Purely stayed here as it was a cheap option. As far as hostels go it's not the worst but the rooms are very small and cramped, and the kitchen is a little untidy. The communal hallway makes for a disrupted nights sleep as its almost impossible to walk quietly down the hall. It seemed to have good social aspects including...

Unfortunately our stay was very unpleasant and maybe that was our fault for not complaining. Check in was the highlight of our stay when we met a really lovely New Zealand girl working at the front desk. After we entered the hostel and our room we were utterly disappointed. The room, common areas and hallways are so run down, dirty...
