Groups Information

I booked for 3 nights while I was running the Edmonton Marathon. I ended up staying for 2 more nights. One nice thing is that you can walk everywhere or take the bus. The place is very quiet. A great place to relax.” 

Alfred K

Awesome hospitality 5 star and very friendly staff couldn't ask for better

April Pearl Martin

I stayed in the 6 bed female dorm. It was very clean. There are lots of cafes nearby the hostel. The staff is friendly and helpful. There are bunk beds but good quality ones. There was even tea and coffee in the kitchenette. Towels are free too.
