Property Description

Come unplug and unwind at HI-Beauty Creek!

We don't offer internet here and that's the way we like it. We'd much rather see our guests interact with each other while enjoying our numerous activities, ie. (Ping-Pong, Badminton, Row-boats, Board Games, Hammock-swinging and Camp-Fires.) We like to think of ourselves as Summer-Camp for adults, (although children are of course still welcome!)

We're situated right along-side the Sunwapta River and our location offers amazing views of Mt. Kitchener and Tangle Ridge on one side and the sun sets daily with a spectacular view of the Never-Ending-Ridge looking north towards Jasper.

Jasper National Park was recently named the World's Largest Accessible Dark Sky Preserve and HI-Beauty Creek is the closest HI hostel to the darkest part of the National Park. You'll be able to savour true silence, night skies bursting with stars and the knowledge that some of the world's most magnificent landscapes are, really, right outside our door.

We are situated just one km from the stunning Beauty Creek/Stanley Falls hike, and the world famous Athabasca Glacier/Columbia Ice-field Centre are a mere 15 minute drive south of the hostel.
Two more of the most renowned hikes in the Rockies, (Wilcox Pass and Parker Ridge), are both less than 30 km away from the hostel.
While we don't have electricity or running-water we do have a fully stocked kitchen with propane lighting, BBQ, stove-tops, heaters and a fridge.

Come on down to Beauty Creek for a truly rustic and beautiful Canadian experience!

A word on HI-Wilderness Hostels

Get back to nature with HI's network of wilderness hostels. They're a varied bunch! Some have lights powered by propane, some have rustic wood-burning saunas, at some you'll get electricity, and at others you'll get to pump your own water. But whatever you're after, these hostels with their simple comforts immerse you in the natural splendour of the Rockies.

You'll be able to savour true silence, night skies bursting with stars and the knowledge that some of the world's most magnificent outdoors is, really, just out the door. Dotted along the Icefields Parkway, and throughout the Parks, these hostels are set into pockets of trees, alongside creeks, or at the base of thousand-foot-high rock faces. Whether you get there by car, bike or on food, your efforts are rewarded with some of the finer, simpler things in life - a warm fire, cozy lounges, and the chance to share food with new friends while you relive the day's adventures.

It is perfectly rustic! Nothing more to want as the essentials are taken care of - heat, cleanliness, comfortable bed, plenty of dishes and cookware and a fire pit. We had a clear and darkest sky I have ever experienced. The stars were amazing! The electricity didn’t last for more than an hour - so a lantern, headlamps or flashlight are essential. Not fancy at all, but everything you would want in the great winter outdoors. Thank you for maintaining this facility!

Great host to give us a tour! Excellent energy in the common spaces. Community feel in the kitchen. Disappointing sleep due to three loud guys getting settled from 11p-12a. At 4a, someone turned on all the overhead lights and took several minutes to turn off. Starting from 6:45-8a, very loud conversations from groups getting ready in the morning. One man tossed his stuff from the top bunk to the ground loudly. Overall disrespectful of sleeping space.
