The Rocky Mountains are absolutely beautiful and people who go to visit the area will be thrilled to know that there are four incredible Canadian hostels where they can stay during their vacation. These hostels are perfect for people who want to save money while on vacation and still have a wonderful place to stay with all of their favorite amenities.
Here are four of my favourite Canadian Hostels in the Rocky Mountains:
HI-Canmore Alpine Club of Canada
The HI-Canmore is located at the bottom of Grotto Mountain and is just minutes from downtown Canmore. Visitors enjoy the scenery of Bow Valley as well as the wooded areas. Each of the dorm rooms sleeps 4-6 people and the private cabins sleep 3 people. Guests are able to use the fully stocked kitchen with updated appliances to make meals to enjoy by the fireplace or on the outside deck. As soon as guests step outside the hostel, they can go mountain biking, hiking and rock climbing. A few miles away from the hostel, guests can go ice climbing and resort skiing.
Samesun Banff Hostel
The Samesun Banff Hostel is located a few minutes from downtown Banff and is really close to restaurants, bars and shopping. They have dorm rooms that sleep 6, 8, 10 or 14 people as well as private rooms. Each room has its own restroom facilities as well as fireplaces, balconies and views of the Cascade, Norquay and Tunnel Mountains. The hostel offers many activities for their guests including hiking, canoeing, hot springs, ice skating, snowshoeing and movie nights.
HI-Jasper is located within Jasper National Park on Whistlers Mountain and it is the perfect place for guests to enjoy the quiet that nature has to offer. HI-Jasper has both private and shared rooms available and it is recommended that guests stock up on supplies before arriving at the hostel. HI-Jasper has been named the World’s Largest Accessible Dark Sky Preserve and guests can take advantage of this by seeing lots of stars and the Northern Lights in the clear skies at night. Many guests bring inner tubes so that they can float directly to the Arctic Ocean from the Arctic watershed in Athabasca Valley.
Misty River Lodge
Misty River Lodge is located in Radium Hot Springs, which is approximately an hour and a half from Banff. The lodge is the perfect place for guests to stay as they explore Kootenay, Banff and Yoho National Parks as well as the Bugaboos, which is an infamous climbing destination. The majority of their rooms have private restroom facilities and a few have their own private kitchen. After a long day of adventure, guests can enjoy their meal outside on the deck with a view of the mountains in the background. The lodge even has a reading room available, so that guests have a special place to go during their downtime.
With so many hostels available, everyone should be able to find their own perfect place to stay during their adventures in the Rocky Mountains. Each hostel is unique in its own way however they all want to make sure that their guests have a wonderful time during their stay.
