This is a clean and well-organized place close to the center. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms have a good outfit (mostly wood), which makes it more pleasant to stay. The only thing that I did not like is their pricing policy: Instead of adding a surcharge to the price they state on the website to non-HI-members, they should make it a discount for members and give you the price that you will actually have to pay in the first place. But this is just a detail.

Need more plugs, electrical sockets in the rooms. Just need a $6 plug multi board for all the phones, lap tops etc. Also the older Canadians, and to put it nicely, with eccentric personalities is off-putting, especially their random topics of conversation.

Extremely well located hostel, freshly-restored, nice stuff and free complimentary breakfast which can make you full for most of the day :) I really enjoyed my stay at HI Calgary, as they have very well-working high speed internet what lets many searches go smooth. Thank you guys! Regards, Daniel

Probably would not stay here again. The hostel is locate near a shelter and there were a lot of homeless people milling around in the park beside the hostel. The rooms have very poor ventelation and stink.

Having been recently renovated this hostel has great facilities and the cleanliness of the whole place is fantastic. The staff were super friendly and helpful, overall a great atmosphere and place to stay! The only issue is the location, noise-wise the tram which runs past is quiet, but building works surrounding the hostel were on occasion loud. If traveling alone be cautious returning to hostel at night time, locals frequent the adjacent park after dark.

The location is great, only 5 mins walk to the City Hall C-train Station. There are various travelling, transportation and restaurant information available. The kitchen is spacious and well equiped with free tea and coffee and continental breakfast.

One of the best hostels i have ever visited. This hostel has everything you need, the team running the place are very helpful and the atmosphere is pleasant. You meet people from every corner of the globe: people on short business trips, university students, tourists, professional people attending conferences, and more. I have very much enjoyed my stay there and would highly recommend this place.

Fantastic hostel with amazing staff. The location is close to everything and only one block away from the free c-train. The breakfast is very tasty and the hostel is very clean, specially the washrooms. My suggestion is to have more activities. Price is more than reasonable for what you get. I met lots of great people here.
