The bunks were very low do don't expect much space if you're on the bottom. It was far away from the main attractions in Edmonton so you need a car to get around, but it was close to a super market and some restaurants. Decent sized lockers but no space under the beds to store anything extra.

Thanks for your comments. We are located in Old Strathcona - the arts and entertainment district. Many of the other city attractions are a short ride on the bus, which you can catch one block from the hostel. If you happen to need extra storage space, we have a luggage storage room. Greg, Manager


The hostel is in a great location. Just one block from Whyte Avenue where you will find grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations, clubs, and restaurants. They have a big lounge where you can mingle with other travellers. They have a decent size storage in each room. My room's heater at the second floor didn't seem to work very well for a couple of nights. Inspite of the heater problem, I would stay here again and would recommend to my friends. Thanks!


Average hostel. Some staff were willing to help, others couldn't be bothered.

Thanks for your comments. I'm sorry to hear that not all staff members you dealt with were as helpful as they should have been. I have spoken to all staff and reminded them of our high expectations for customer service. Greg, Manager


HI Edmonton is always a great value for the money. Close to the university and close to lots of shops, restaurants, pubs, and transit. The only thing it needs is more parking for those of us from our of town.


Very friendly staff, a lot of people from around the world, lower beds could be little higher than they are. Overall - nice hostel. Go for it!
