It wasn't terrible to spend the night here but if you have other options go for it.

It's a ways out of town. The bunk beds are old and rickety. You could smell the woodsmoke in the dorms when you woke up and my friend and I developed a cough because of sleeping while breathing it in. The bathrooms are really cold and there were two out of three stalls in the women's bathroom out of service.
The kitchen has lots of stoves but is poorly designed so it's hard to fit with other people.

The good thing was that we were able to get a Maligne canyon ice walk tour combined with the dorm room for a discounted price.

Overall this hostel felt like it needed updating and was just getting by because there aren't many affordable options for places to stay in Jasper.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with family

Staying at this particular HI hostel was like staying in an orphanage or refugee camp.

Cons;
- biggest issue was the rooms. There is one female dorm which sleeps up to 30 people. And one mixed dorm which sleeps up to 40! It's one big room, like a hall, with heaps of bunk beds. The photos they show on their website are misleading because there is no blocker (for privacy) between bunk beds at all. Having this many people in the one room, you can imagine what goes down, it's horrible. Don't expect sleep.

- '11pm lights out' and 'quite time' rule is not enforced by staff. The walls are paper thin, so you can hear people in lounge talking past midnight.

- the hostel is a longgggggggg way out of town if you don't have a car. over an hour walk to downtown. There is a shared taxi that comes every morning at 8.30am and another coming back to the hostel at 5.30am - so you really need to be in downtown jasper area for the solid day. I'm told a taxi is almost $20 one way.

- didn't find staff to be overly welcoming and friendly. Honestly seemed like one particular girl (dark brown hair, from the UK?) hated her job with a passion? Couldn't crack a smile from the poor girl in the 2 days I was there :(

Pros;
- share taxi to and from town was reasonable price, $3 each way

- hostel was clean

- free wifi

-the feeling of freedom checking out of this hostel :p


Look into anything but this hostel!! Cheap hotel, b&b, sleep in the car, couch surfing. Just not here - you've been warned ;)

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.

Awesome staff, has a barbecue and a fire place. Definitely a good experience ! Having already been to several backpackers, i can tell that this one is one of my favorite. The staff will always be happy to share a conversation about anything you would and advise you about what you can do around (hiking, sightseeing, etc). Plus, the hostel is only 5min from Jasper by car.
