I stayed in the hostel for a week during winter season in Fernie. It is a great place to meet people if you are new in town. There is a popular bar with cheap drinks and live music, the kitchen is clean and the downstairs area has a massive tv room with heaps of lounges, a games area with a...

Cheap and simple hostel with sparsely furnished rooms with only some possibilities for drying ski gear after skiing. Free american pancakes for breakfast that you can make by yourself. Free coffee at breakfast.

Cool bar area with cheap beer. Crappy run down rooms. Loud, dirty and so hot we had to sleep with the window and one eye open... Seems to be an ongoing problem they are yet to fix. Free breakfast is a joke. Only gave it a 2 because they sold Nelson beer.

We arrived quite late after travelling and to our dismay the pub was pumping quite loud. Any other night I would've loved this. Thankfully our room was far enough away we didn't hear the noise. Our room was small: a bunk with a double bed underneath. Outlets/powerpoints were very limited. The room was BOILING. The thermostat was broken. Breakfast, although...

We just stopped in for a few pints at the Kodiak Lounge, didn't stay over night but there but the lounge was great. It was open mic night for locals and visitors and the entertainment was awesome. The place got pretty hoppin' later on, apparently it was a date night kind of theme or something. It states the place closes...

Driving into Fernie it was raining and the weather was showing it wasn't going to stop for a whole week so when arriving at the Raging Elk I spoke to the front desk staff and said considering the weather would it be ok if we only stayed for two nights even though we booked for three. They were really good...

This is a really friendly place to meet people with an awesome bar, kitchen and hang out area and there are a bunch of long-termers staying out the season here. The rooms were warm (although there were pretty average thin, plastic mattresses). The WiFi is OK but tends to get overloaded and only supports skype when everyone is asleep. If...

It was a great stay. The pub staff and drinks were fantastic and great place to meet up with people to head to the hill with. The people are really friendly, battery went dead over night and it was easy to find someone to give me a quick boost. Only downside is not much electrical receptacles in the rooms for...

One of Fernie's gems. Friendly place that gives you an affordable home base to explore the area, winter or summer. The friendly little pub is great place to meet other travellers and pick the brains of locals on what to do and see in the area.

Joe took is in with open arms on a rainy night years ago. He showed us to out room, which was cheap and met our requirements. In the mornings we would go downstairs into the spacious and clean communal room and make pre-prepared pancakes. There was a cinema room, and a great bar. To me, this place was Fernie. I...
