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.

I absolutely enjoyed my two weeks stay. The facilities are excellent. The staff are nice, friendly and helpful more especially Jason, the manager. Kudos to the three cleaners: The Indian lady, Sara, and the Chilean lady. During my stay I met great people some of which are now my friends. I will definitely use the services of HI- Calgary City Centre again and would highly recommend this great Hostel to anyone I know and beyond.

I stayed just one night so I don't know much about the hostel. But it was quite during the night and that's the only thing that maters for me.

The hostel is pretty close to the light rail station so it's easy to get to/from the Greyhound station. My only suggestion is to install air conditioning in the rooms. We had just a fan and it was actually hotter in the room than it was outside (and it was close to 30C). So difficult to sleep when it's roasting!

We appreciate the time you took to review us. We are looking into installing air conditioning units throughout the hostel. Thank you for your suggestion Happy Trails, Jason Wong Manager

hostel was very clean with good amenities like a large laundry room, a tv room, and a decent sized kitchen. The staff were very friendly and were willing to help you out with directions and to find things to do within the city or even province if you were willing to drive. The only draw back to this location was that there was no AC.

As a solo traveler, this hostel did not seem to be the best place to meet other people, but overall it was nice. The rooms were large enough, clean bathrooms and good location.

Nice breakfast, although a bit chaotic because there is only 1 stove to bake the pancakes. The other thing is that they let people check in in the middle of the night, even if it is for only a couple of hours. Annoying and not so safe.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Glad that you enjoyed our breakfast, it is very popular among our guests, and can get chaotic at times. We do have a double kitchen for people to cook the pancakes. The hostel is open 24 hours to help accommodate guest with late arrivals. Safe travels, Jason Wong
