Groups Information

The best location for a hostel in the Canadian Rockies. Across the valley from Takakkaw Falls and just metres away from the start of the Iceline Trail. Dark skies a plenty at night for stargazers! Be sure to stop by when in Yoho National Park

Greg Boutestein

Located right in the front of the Takakkaw Falls, the sound of the grandiose fall can be heard anywhere in the hostel. A very unique in-the-woods experience that suits the backpacker/hikers on the trails.

There is also wifi for a while each night from a satellite internet connection. There are also showers! Pretty incredible for a place so remote and only open for 3 months. Very clean, well organized and located right next door to the start of the Iceline trail.

Great Canadian Road Trip Tips

HI hostels  are all over the country at ideal stopping points. With a hostel, you’ll get a comfy place to sleep, kitchen facilities to help you feed yourself while sticking to a budget, hot showers and you’ll still get to meet other backpackers along the way (and maybe pick up a new passenger), which is a heck of a lot better than trying to sleep in your car.
