10/10 Exceptional

I had a good experience , Ian was up late and was bale to check me in after 10. He gave me a good rundown of where everything was at .He gave me some good tips on where to get food , gas and where and when to see sites and good hiking spots. The cabin was very clean and so was the bathroom .

Want to experience nature? This is the place!
When the place advertised no running water or electricity, I was a bit worried, but given how all other area hotels were booked, I didn't have much of an option. It turned out to be a great experience. They have a kitchen with all the needed plates, pots, pans, utensils, etc. Plus, the Lake Louise hostel allows you to take showers there, which completely eliminated fears of staying there. I had great fun meeting other people during the stay, so would I go back? Absolutely!

Nice cabin next to a creek
Wish I could have stayed longer, had an itinerary to follow. Saw a sign: free stays to those who volunteers

It is a wilderness hostel so don't expect a regular hotel but I got exactly what I wanted. Very beautiful area and a nice place to get away from it all

6/10 Good

There's no shower and modern style toilet (There's only squat toilet) In other words, this is little better than camping. However it's cheap and you can feel the nature. Remember you need to check in before 10PM because literally you cannot find the hostel after 10PM because of darkness. You can't even see 3 meter forward and there's no light in the night. Therefore you have to walk into darkness and that's very spooky.
