Property Description

Located between Banff and Lake Louise, the warm and hospitable Castle Mountain Wilderness Hostel offers outdoor enthusiasts a wide range of adventures, from hiking alpine trails to skiing at nearby resorts. We are also ideal for a stress-relieving getaway, set amongst beautiful natural surroundings with plenty of forest and wildlife. The hostel features a bright, cozy common room with a wood-burning fireplace and large bay windows. There is full running water - hot showers and flush toilets!
Prices include linen - NO SLEEPING BAGS PLEASE.

NOTE - Due to the wilderness location, accessibility for the physically disabled is challenging (call for further details) Credit Card needed when making reservations. Due to lack of direct/reliable communication with the Wildereness Hostels the Central Reservation Office is not able to make same day arrival reservations - walk in basis only. 48 hours individual cancellation - at all wilderness hostels. Book ahead to avoid any disapointment. As these smaller hostels are very popular both winter and summer.

RATES QUOTE FOR MEMBERS OF HOSTELLING INTERNATIONAL. All non members will be charged an additional fee when they arrive at the Hostel.

*This hostel is closed during the day!
CHECK OUT - prior to 10am


A word on HI-Wilderness Hostels

Get back to nature with HI's network of wilderness hostels. They're a varied bunch! Some have lights powered by propane, some have rustic wood-burning saunas, at some you'll get electricity, and at others you'll get to pump your own water. But whatever you're after, these hostels with their simple comforts immerse you in the natural splendour of the Rockies.

You'll be able to savour true silence, night skies bursting with stars and the knowledge that some of the world's most magnificent outdoors is, really, just out the door. Dotted along the Icefields Parkway, ad throughout the Parks, these hostels are set into pockets of trees, alongside creeks, or at the base of thousand-foot-high rock faces. Whether you get there by car, bike or on food, your efforts are rewarded with some of the finer, simpler things in life - a warm fire, cozy lounges, and the chance to share food with new friends while you relive the day's adventures.

Latest Review

" It's perfect get- away in the forest. No WiFi, no TV - perfect to leave daily routine behind. Only a short drive to Lake Louise or Banff. Just a beautiful place to return to when you were out hiking or exploring the National Park, esp. because of the lounge area with a fire place right in the middle! "
