Property Information:

Want to meet other amazing world-travelers and enjoy loads of free amenities (even laundry is free) and have a crazy good time while you are in Calgary? Then check us out!

IMPORTANT!!!!

***WARNING: (PLEASE READ) Boring, sterile, quiet and lifeless is the OPPOSITE of what we are - so if that's what you are looking for then Wicked is definitely not for you. ***

***For the security of our guests, we only accept genuine backpackers/travelers carrying government-issued OUT OF PROVINCE DRIVERS LICENSE or INTERNATIONAL ID and luggage/backpacks. ***

All guests must be over the age of 18 to stay here
We also have FREE PARKING and FREE LAUNDRY SERVICE**!

We have had some confusion over late check-ins, this site will not allow your arrival time to be set between 12:00am and 8:00am because we close the front desk at 12:00am. If you know you will be late, please let us in advance so that staff awaits your arrival.

UPDATE: Some people haven't figured this out yet so: So if you book your arrival to be 5:00pm and you rock up at 1:30am (anytime between 12:00am and 8:00am) expecting to be checked-in you will be stuck outside. Please just let us know so that we can make arrangements otherwise we assume you are a no-show and go to bed ourselves.

------Why stay at Wicked Hostels-----

Well, we are a backpacker-owned hostel run entirely by backpackers. We've been in your shoes and we've tried to make our hostel match and exceed the best amenities we've seen. When you arrive, our friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff can assist you with all your travel needs. We can help you find what you are looking for in Calgary, make suggestions on great places to visit here and even help you with your forward travel plans to other regions. There is no curfew; we're not here to tell you when you can have a good time. We do ask that people are courteous and quiet after 12:00am, so that anyone wanting to can get a good night's rest, but if you decide you want to hang-out in the common room at
night or cook a midnight snack you can go right ahead. We have free internet computers and free WIFI throughout the building, so keeping in touch is easy and affordable! One thing you won't find here is a T.V. Instead, you will find a friendly, comfortable common room with cozy leather couches, board games, playing cards, an iPod dock and lots of other interesting backpackers. We also do 'I've-Hit-The-Wall' movie nights (projected on the wall) when you just want to relax after a hectic weekend of partying.

We also have a free continental breakfast every morning; free tea and coffee all the time; free bed linen (we even make your bed up for you before you arrive!). And guess what, we have free parking too, something very tough to find and also very expensive anywhere in the Calgary City Center. We also provide planned activities like group skating or tobogganing in the winter or *floats* down the Elbow River and free BBQ's in the summer. Sometimes, we do a free communal supper for everyone!
For security we have CCTV cameras throughout the common areas and corridors as well as keypad-locked front door (locked between midnight and 8am).

Stampede Packages: Stampede bookings can be made by calling Wicked Hostel directly. Due to our location (across the street from Stampede), our beds are fill up very fast. So book in advance if you are planning on staying in Calgary during Stampede.

Cancellations must be made 24 hours before your scheduled arrival to avoid any charges. During the Stampede (July 4-13, 2014), 7 days cancellation notice is required.

So if you are the kind of person who wants to make the most of their stay in Calgary and are looking to stay in the newest hostel with the best location and staff that really understand the needs of backpackers, please check us out.

Look forward to having you with us -- Jeff

    Great place to stay. Could do with a few minor improvements to make it allot better. 1. A night light and plank for bed. 2. A dusting of blinds and windows. 3. Fixing broken room lights.
