The kitchen attached to the building we stayed in (the main building) was a mess. Dishes were not done and it was impossible to find a place for food in the fridge as it was very disorganized. Single items were spread all over not leaving others room for their food. Similarly with dry food - there was no place for us to put our dry food. The kitchen is in the basement so not very inviting.

We loved this place. Rooms are modest, but access to the rest of the facility (restaurant, fireplace lounge, outdoor fire pit, sauna, games room) makes it very comfortable. Good location. Very friendly staff. Thanks for having coffee & snacks for Canada's gold medal game early Sunday morning! We'll be back. Mark and Barb Dobroski Red Deer, AB

Top notch place to stay, lots of activities and things to do while here during the winter, free shuttle to Lake Louise Mountain, big kitchen to make your own dishes, free wifi, dance night's on Thursday and the BnG is pretty much always open Until 2 AM every night, so be a good person, make some friends and go have a great time at Lake Louise :)


This hostel seemed to be very family oriented. The facilities are great (incl. the sauna), but the location is not ideal. I was driving but had I been busing with my snowboard, I think I would have had quite a bit of trouble.


Very clean and nice hostel
