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

Overall not too bad but the noise of the level crossing right next to the hostel means you don't get a very good nights sleep. They need to soundproof the rooms.

Thank you for your review Chris! We are located close to the free-fare zone of the C-Train line which although very convenient can sometimes be noisy. Thank you for staying with us and we hope you enjoy your travels. Best Regards, Cassandra Moore Assistant Manager
