It's like the property was a hotel and they decided they had spare rooms in the basement/ dungeon so they decided to turn them into 'dorms'. The showers seriously need to be updated - a good first step would be putting locks on the doors. There are also no lockers in the rooms to store valuables and the kitchen is closed for cleaning from 7pm to 8pm which is generally a popular time to cook and eat dinner. Whoever made that decison must lack serious logical thinking.

Best place to meet other travelers is the kitchen. Close to the center of town.

The hotel is located right on Bow Valley trail, which is a beautiful walking trail along the river and a short walk to some waterfalls. The location is great too, just outside of downtown so it isn't as busy and lots of parking at the hotel so you can walk everywhere. The staff were able to recommend some spots to check out as well.

Staff were helpful and friendly. The kitchen was dimly lit and not very clean. Many people didn't do their dishes and not sure when fridges were cleaned out. Dorm room was great with separate shower and toilet. Beds could be improved with under blanket on top of slippery mattress.
