HI Lake Louise Alpine Centre
Lake Louise, Alberta
There may be nothing more iconic than Lake Louise—a stunning blue glacier lake backed by mountains in Banff National Park. HI Lake Louise is just down the road from the lake in a post and beam chalet with a variety of room options and its own licensed restaurant. Visit the lake, hike the local trails or ski at a world-class resort in the winter (five minutes by car).

Really nice hostel!! We did a fire upstairs every night and the staff are really friendly! They play card at night with us. You can meet amazing people. Room are clean,shower hot ,nice sauna and the nature around is beautifulllll
I may be biased from staying at hostels in many other countries, but this is the nicest one I've stayed at. Multiple showers per floor, clean linen and a FULL communal kitchen so you can save money on cooking your own food!
We came to ski lake louise....We met a lot of great people and rested well. The beds were clean with a bathroom in our room. Showers are across the hall.Go make yourself known because the people staying there wish to visit and be friendly.
...as everyone knows this is THE hostel in Western Canada, and perhaps all of the country! The location can't be beat, its insanely pretty everywhere you turn, has fantastic hiking, biking, walking trails, and is minutes or a short drive to everything...
