There is no community, no atmosphere and no drive to try and get people to no each other, it's a HOSTEL

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. The hostel was closed for 1 year, due to the flooding in 2013. We just reopened on June 1st, 2014. In the near future we are looking to have organized activities for our guests. We hope you have to visit us again when we have these activities up and running. Best regards, Jason Wong


The facilities were good and staff friendly. It's a short walk to the local park, train and restaurants. It was quiet which suited me, but maybe not those who want to party (even Calgary is even the place for that). Some repairs were underway for flood damage but that didn't inconvenience. Would certainly stay again!

Thank you for the review, we appreciate it. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and would come again in the future. The location is appealing to many travelers as we are within walking distance to many attractions (downtown core) and the free downtown train zone. We still have some minor reservations to complete after the flood, but we hope to be finished in the next month or so. Safe travels, Jason Wong


This was my first ever stay at a hostel, I was pleasantly surprised at the facilities but knocked out by the friendliness

Could be not the best hostel, but for this rates, its excellent for the travelers who stay in Calgary for few days.

Thank you for reviewing us. We are happy to hear that the hostel and its amenities is a great value. Safe travels, Jason Wong


Really pleasantly surprised staying here. Everything was great to be honest, clean rooms, spacious, comfy beds, good security, tv and pool room, reading room, free breakfast and great staff! Even the location wasn't that bad, it was a couple minute walk to downtown areas. I have been sticking to these HI hostels since because they're a guarenteed nice stay!

Thank you so much for your review! We are really pleased you had a great experience as we strive to always have the highest standards for our guests. Our free breakfast is very popular among our guests. The location is not only close to many attractions but provides easy and cost effective transportation to places such as the Greyhound and the Airport. We hope to see you again at HI Calgary or other HI hostels world-wide. Best regards, Jason Wong


It was an OK place to stay,near the city center mall and city hall
