Staff were cordial but nothing more. Facilities were very well cleaned and maintained, I am beyond impressed at how clean this place is. They are not joking about their rules, read them carefully because they are followed to the letter. They will be in your room at 0930h asking if you're staying. It's a bummer that the common room is closed at night, because I am a night owl and there's nowhere else to go. Also, none of the computers work and WiFi is spotty in the rooms but good in common areas.


Cheap, clean, friendly, and situated in an awesome wee mountain town. Bloody good time!

As far as hostels go the raging elk was mediocre. Staff were not helpful, the website lacks in detail. If you are an eighteen year old male this is a great place for you. Given that we stayed over new year's we were expecting some partying but a 4 am party in the room beside ours is unacceptable. The walls are thin and not all of the windows have locks. Not a place for children under 14. For families, there is great affordable safe and clean accommodation a literal stone's throw from the elk.

The Raging Elk Hostel in Fernie is the nicest and friendliest Hostel I have stayed in. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. All the facilities were really good and the all the staff were helpful and friendly. I would stay here again.
