I really like this hostel. The staff are super friendly who always will help. They had a BBQ event when I was there but if you are looking to party this is not the place. Lots of great selections for breakfast. The room and bathroom are clean and comfortable.

Thank you for taking the time to review. We are disappointed to hear that you did not find our staff to be very friendly. We strive very hard to be as helpful and customer focused as we can. It is always nice to hear that people enjoy our free breakfast. I have sent you an email personally to get some more information regarding your stay. Happy travels and we hope that you may be able to stay with us again. Kind Regards, Cassandra Moore Assistant Manager


Not the friendliest Hostel I've stayed at (I've stayed at rather a few). There wasn't a warm all-in-it-together feeling and felt much more like a commercial enterprise. The free Breakfast wasn't too great either. Aside from that, the beds were comfortable and clean, and the Security in and around the building were above the standard I would normally expect to see at a Hostel.

Thank you for leaving a review on Hostelworld. We're sorry to hear this was your experience. We currently have weekly events such as BBQs and pasta nights for our guests to encourage socializing and friendships. We're also looking to increase the number of group activities planned. Thanks for bringing this to our attention and saying our security and beds were above the normal standard. We hope you're able to see an improvement during your next stay! Safe travels, Jason Wong, Manager

Not a bad place for a nights rest.


There isn't much in Calgary but this hostel is a nice place to meet people and stay Its warm and has all the facilities All facilities available and staff are nice, helpful and genuine A suggestion of TV in the kitchen as this is the only place guests can drink otherwise the room downstairs is the TV and pool room to socialise there are people staying here who are also looking for jobs, so a good place to make contacts for that
