Hello! Hello! Hello!
This is the review of HI Hostel jasper in you guessed it Jasper!
We arrived November 15th, the guest clerk was somewhat grumpy, which I learned after staying there for two weeks is just his demeanour but it is not a great first impression.
The Kitchen is what you first walk into. I like the layout, the kitchen stoves are separated into blocks and in between are work surfaces and also loads of cutlery, pots and pans and anything you could want!
The fridge is large which is necessary *especially in summer* The free food shelf is ace!
The sofas need a revamp, the cushions are plumped with bin bags or garbage bags to make them seem more comfortable, this doesn't work, they are just odd on your bottom
There is a huge fire and myself and friends got to create many over our two week stay!
the rates were cheaper this time of year and they also had a stay 2 nights get one free deal which was a much needed bonus!
We enjoyed the laid back attitude of the staff here.
The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of blankets if you get chilly!
The shower facilities are fine, there is a mini changing area with a curtain as they are open in the main area. the toilets are fine.
The internet was incredibly sloooooow, but you are int he mountains and it is costly.
they could offer free tea, hot chocolate and coffee.
The managers are friendly and just simply down to earth.
The mountain view is worth the walk up to the hostel.
They have a taxi shuttle that operates around 8am to town and from town at night. it only costs $3 per person.
The hostel could do with some revamping in the decoration area, and have a little more character in the building. Pictures, artwork. quotes from people.
It can get cold in winter there but with a nice fire then you are fine.
They rent out Snowshoes, and sleds!
They have BBQ'S outside so you can use them for a lean mean steak.
I would recommend staying here!
The laid back attitude of the staff and how they just chit and chat with travellers rubs off on you and everyone ends up chatting away and everybody feels at ease! :)
The lights do go on at 8am and off at 11pm!
this is not great for people who like to sleep in, but just take a face mask and use the blankets to make a den over your bunk bed and you will be fine and dandy!
It is thoroughly cleaned everyday and night! The most cleanliness hostel I have been to. well done staff!
The dorms are either mixed sex, private or girls only.
