Liked: Really cool cabin, log fire, friendly people. There was no wifi but that was actually a nice thing, and there is still an internet PC if you need it. The huge dorms are actually partitioned and sleeping wasn't a problem at all.

Disliked: Quite far from town, tricky if you don't have a car.

Liked: This hostel located in the beautiful place, in Mt. whislters'. Also this is really good place for hiking and walking. And staffs in Hi-Jasper was so nice. It was my first time travel to overseas so I had a doubt on my schedule. When I asked them they gave a good tip and advise for me. I was so impressed and grateful to them. I will really appreciate to them.

Disliked: Everything was good, except no wifi. But I believe they will provide wifi to travelers near in the future.

Liked: Big kitchen, big common area and quite clean. Staff are helpful and friendly. Especially the crazy dude with the long hair. Absolutely hilarious.

Disliked: 20 mins out fo town by shuttle or taxi. No vending machine to purchase drinks which would be helpful before taking off on a long hike nearby. You have to go into town to buy food or drinks of any kind. Staff are not always at the front desk which is frustrating. But they are helpful when they are around.

Liked: The atmosphere was so relaxing and comfortable. The offer of three nights for the price of two was amazing. The kitchen facilities were great.

Disliked: Only two female toilets available. Individual lights in the dorms would have been good, the lights in the room were on a timer and came on too early in the morning.

Liked: Co-ed rooms are ok but do look like an orphenage. It's far from downtown and if you'd like there are 3 private rooms in here that you can book by phone.

Disliked: too many people in the same room, although it wasn't busy at the time.

14 July 2011

Liked: The living room

Disliked: The Internet was very slow The "no shoe inside" rule, which was not respected, so it is worst for people which respects the rules Shower rooms were very wet and cold The lights are turned off at 11 PM, and the staff didn't warn us, so we were really surprised. The dorm was very dark, even when the light is turned on. They clean the kitchen during the lunch hours, so we cannot use it between 12PM and 2PM...

Liked: There were a few cool people there to meet and it had amazing views from the kitchen windows of the rockies. nice fire in the evening

Disliked: It was soooo far away from the town of jasper with NO trails that you could do near the hostel. It meant walking 6k each way everyday just to start a trail or to pick up some groceries! either that or get a taxi for $15 each way. The staff were not particularily helpful and we got put in an all female dorm which we didnt ask for and had to stay with very loud school children under 15 (not the hostel atmosphere I had imagined) Also the beds were incredibly close together so felt like you were sharing a bed with randoms! there was also bedbugs so covered in so many bites after only 2 nights.

Liked: super friendly and helpful staff, probably once in a lifetime experience to share your bedroom with 38 other people but it's okay for a few nights, excellent kitchen facilities; third night free was a nice surprise

Disliked: sometimes it gets a little bit cold in the winter because of the fan in the bedroom which guarantees fresh air, but is also noisy; forgot to send an e-mail that female dorm is closed
