This hostel was alright, be sure to ask for a back room because some people from the hostel come back quite late (after quiet hour) and talk super loud out front. I had a front room and the noise was unbelievable. As well I'm not sure why but the dorm room was very warm it was hard to sleep. Overall it was alright I've been to a few different HI hostels and this one was not the best.
Bit dated and zero atmosphere but that's HI hostels for you. Great location and helpful friendly staff.
I really liked the neighbourhood around the hostel, Cafe Mosaics (82 Ave) has the best Mystery burgers ever! Hostel had clean rooms and helpful staff!
The lady you have cleaning in the evenings is wonderful. Give her a raise!
Noticed the nice small attentions but some staff aren't very helpful & still the hostel looks very unfriendly.
I have on complain I reserved my room from 26 April , and I arrived on 26 April 1 am but they did not allowed me to get in even to keep my bags or wait in chair. When I applied online no one told me that I have to wait till 3 pm. It was my worst night ever

Great location in Edmonton and a fair price, but more attention to detail with regards to cleanliness is needed ... the floor in the 8 bed dorm was quite dirty even after housekeeping hours, and the 2nd floor bathroom was out of toilet paper on the first night of my stay. Also, the internet was not great, as it was slow and was experiencing problems with disconnects every 2 minutes during the latter part of my stay. Overall, a good place to stay, but there is definitely room for improvement.
Lights in the lounge are too dim to read by, and I'd rather read down there than in the room. In the room the light is dim, too, and I had to maneuver on the top bunk to read.
Very dated building. Staff were friendly enough. Stayed in a private due to availability and was greeted with a small, cold private room that smelled of mothballs (not a joke). Kitchen was nice enough, but the place needs a facelift.
