Very clean, laundry available for $5. The Wi-Fi is usually only turned on for one hour every day from 8 to 9 PM. The drive to get there is gorgeous; the Kananaskis mountains seem closer to you than the ones in Banff. I like the location; it feels more like a country road drive after you turn off from the TransCanada Highway. I went here for three nights to have a little solo writing retreat and hiked in upper Kananaskis lake and visited wedge pond. Showers are hot and clean

Went away for the weekend alone, and found a great spot in Kananaskis! Lewis was very helpful and welcoming, and the hostel had great amenities especially very warm, private and clean showers! Even managed to meet some cool people to spend time with around the firepit. Cannot recommend enough!
