1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The place has character. In comparison to other hostels, this was the worse one I’ve been to. You get access to a kitchen and washroom, both of them dirty when I arrived. The rooms were okay. They weren’t lying when they said the hostel would get REALLY LOUD. Not from the bands or DJs from the bar below the hostel, but from the other guests. You’ll have people running up and down the halls yelling at each other at 10pm. From what I could tell in my 3.5 hours staying at the hostel, expect that to continue well into the night. Lights out at this place doesn’t exist. Masks in common areas aren’t enforced either; no one wore a mask there. I had enough and left the hostel at 1:30am to drive to my next hiking destination. Had a better sleep in my car through a thunderstorm than I did at the hostel. Different culture there but not my cup of tea. You get access to a bed, washroom, kitchen, wifi, and a roof over your head for the night. I picked the wrong hostel to stay at in canmore! Do yourself a favour, take that $40 and stay at the canmore DOWNTOWN hostel, or drive 21 min up to Banff and stay at Samesun Banff or Banff International Hostel. Either this place is charging too much or other places are charging too little but for that same $40 you would have spent here, you can get a vastly better experience and stay at any other hostel.
