I've stayed in close to 500 different accommodations - hostels to 4 1/2 star hotels in nearly 30 countries so I was surprised to experience David from Germany on reception from this hostel who was the most charming, grounded and attentive staff member. He checked me in, took me on a tour around the hostel which allowed me to gain...

Has free breakfast every day, laundry can be done for you simply by leaving it in a bag with name on it at laundry room, right across from saddledome to watch hockey/lacrosse/concerts/stampede etc, on corner...

Funky and fun. This is the place to go if your looking for a good time. Wonderful staff and facilities, always a ball of fun! Had a family dinner on Sundays for $5 and Superb location, right next to the train station, so majority of the city is accessible! Wonderful stay!

The building isn't much to look at from the outside so I was a bit worried pulling up. That all changed when I checked in, the place was clean, the staff very helpful and friendly. They do lots of little things to help out; do your washing for you, free computers and printers as well as a phone to make...

Nothing too fancy from the outside, but inside a pleasant surprise! Free wifi, free breakfast, free parking, free lockers, free laundry (that gets washed for you!), free printing and computers, free tea, coffee and hot chocolate throughout the day (which is needed when it's -25 outside!) It is by far the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in. Linen and towels...

Free wifi, free breakfast- very rich (cereals, eggs, waffles, ingredients to make pancakes, fruits, hot and cold drinks). I used common frindge and lock luggage in safe when...

Was planning to stay here just few days and ended up staying few months. Jeff was great guy always making the guest feel welcome with nights out to clubs and movie nights at the hostel. Free morning breakfast was nice.

This hostel is very friendly & social. The common area is small enough that you get to know people right away. I was there on Thanksgiving & the staff made dinner for everyone. If you want peace and quiet, get an upstairs room, as there's usually a party vibe downstairs. There is an all-female dorm, but keep in mind it...

Really good value with free laundry, printing, photocopying, international phonecalls and breakfast all included! I stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm. The bed was super comfy and had a little locker by it for valuables. Showers are clean and there are towels you can borrow and hairdryers to use. The staff were awesome. Really helpful and friendly.
