Property Description

The iconic Canmore Hotel has been around since 1890, ’The Ho’ was notorious for its wild parties and the hotel above it was the place to recuperate afterwards. After a 20 month extensive restoration and renovation to this heritage building, the old hotel is back with the rooms transitioned into both private and hostel dorm style accommodation. Our main floor bar features a large stage for live bands on the weekends along with world class DJ's - it can get loud and entertaining on the weekends in our place, so be prepared for a great time!

We are the only hostel in Canmore that is located on its most vibrant street – Main Street. We are on main street and 7th avenue corner in downtown Canmore. We are located across the street from the city & regional transit bus service that also goes to Banff National Park where you can catch another bus to Lake Louise.

We have kitchen facilities, common game room along with the bar/restaurant below. Our hotel has a cannabis shop in the back lane. Our rooms come in categories of private with private washroom attached. Private with shared washroom and shower facilities. We offer 3 types of private rooms, 1xKing OR 1xQuuen OR 2xSingle Bed(s). We also offer dorm rooms in categories of 6, 7, 8 and 12 beds. Dorms are available in female only and mixed gender options.

’The Ho' on the main floor is back as the largest nightclub in Canmore, with live music acts and popular DJ's performing weekly. Enjoy the social interaction upstairs in the hostel, mingle and make new friends in our turn of the century saloon inspired bar/restaurant downstairs. We encourage you to explore the natural paradise around you throughout the day and let loose at the ’The Ho’ as your evening progresses. We look forward to hosting wanderers from across the country and the world.

Great place, I have no complaints at all. I had to ring the hostel for some help and they were really friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful. I was concerned it would be a loud hostel but when you’re in your room it’s really quiet

In all honesty it was ok... But not great. Room wasn't very clean and we had no towels so couldn't shower. No contact details for anyone who works there except an email, but never got back to us. Bar below is noisy but we stayed on a Monday night so quietened down from 10. Would have been absolutely fine if we could have had a shower. Also had a million microfibre cleaning cloths on our bed.. that was a bit weird. Location is great though and bed was comfy.
