The hostel is not so closer to downtown but you can go there walking without baggage. The restaurante within Hostel is very good and all staff is very attentive. Rooms and Bathrooms are clean and organized.

Hi, all three of the snow resorts have transportation leaving from the town. Norquay is 10 minutes away, Sunshine is 20 minutes and Lake Louise is 40 minutes away.
