A glimpse of the hostel
Rooms & Beds
HI Athabasca Falls is a basic facility, across the road from the falls of the same name and 30 minutes south of Jasper. This is one our best hostels for group visits. You’ll have plenty of elbow room both outside and in our huge kitchen and common room, where your group can feast around our giant dining room tables. Please refrain from dancing on them, you’ll be tempted.
We took our annual May long weekend trip to Jasper in the Northern Rocky Mountains and rather than stay at an expensive hotel, we chose to check out the Athabasca Falls Wilderness Hostel. What an awesome surprise it was!
Just note that there is no running water here. However, there is clean drinking water available for use, electricity, and wifi. It was relaxing, Well worth checking out. It's solar panel powered as well!
Best wilderness hostel in the rockies. Recently got solar power too which is pretty cool.
