Our family likes to book all three private rooms when we stay here and spend the weekend skiing, skating and snowshoeing around Kananaskis Village.

Tanya Koob, Family Adventures in the Canadian Rockies

Pretty fabulous for a hostel. Right by Kananaskis Village. We stayed here the night before a long hike/run on the Northover Ridge Loop. Late July is the off-season for this hostel, so it was pretty quiet with a few friendly guests. 

What a great wilderness hostel! Private rooms available. And excellent for groups. This HI location is well managed and well maintained.

My niece had her wedding at this hostel. I have to say I am completely impressed at this place. It was not only clean, but larger than I expected. The pictures in the website do not do it justice. The scenery is breathtaking.
