Reviewed 18 September 2013

we stayed just one night at the kicking horse hostel and we loved it.
Tanya is amazing, an entertainer, helpful and efficient. I have allergies to cat fur (there are a few kicking about) so i asked if the room could be cleaned, we left for 1h (beer stop!) and when we came back everything had been washed, vacuumed and the room (we stayed in the amazing double on the top floor) was spotlessly clean!
The kitchen is superfriendly and there is everything you need! lots of old books to read, and tanya would tell you everything you need to know that the books don't say.
The trains didn't bother us at all, but you can get free earplugs if needs be from tanya. i am a light sleeper but i slelpt like a brick!
toilets are super clean, shower is great and superwarm.
all in all if feels you are not in a hostel but in a cozy house!
tanya is the dog's, or the bee's...depending from where you are...;-))
would we go back? Oooy yes!
would we recommend it? hell yeah!

great place, great host!!!
spend your nights there!!!

This hostel was such a super find! From the giant kitchen and awesome book exchange section, to the free ear plugs and SUPER friendly owner- I would go back in a second. The trains couldn't have bothered me any less and the fact that this hostel is fostering kittens (they live away from the guests, don't worry about allergies) makes it feel so much warmer. I would highly recommend it. Tanya (the owner) is awesome, we could have talked all night!

Room Tip: The bunk beds are pretty high- if you want an extreme experience while you sleep, choose the top bunk!

This hostel is under new management...and it's wonderful! Tanya helped make the stay one to remember. It's important to note that the building is old, and is next to a very loud railroad. Having said that I didn't need the free earplugs she offered to have a solid sleep.

There are not very many beds, so it is not likely to be crowded at once. The bedding was new as well.

I'll definitely be crashing here again next time I go to Kicking Horse resort.

Tanya is a super Host and the Hostel is cozy, sometimes a bIt too loud because of the trains in Front of the Hostel. But we would stay at the Kicking Horse Hostel for sure other Times!!:)
