Welcome to our hostel

I was backpacking 20 years ago, got to this hostel and never left - now I’m the manager! There are tons of reasons that happened: HI-Banff Alpine Centre is on the edge of town, so I’m often greeted by a herd of elk in the front yard, or once in a while I have to chase a bear out of the parking lot. At the same time, Banff is tiny, so it’s a 20-minute walk to the bars, restaurants and everything “downtown”. But the thing that really makes my hostel special is that our staff team - 30 of them - live here as well. They’re all backpackers too, so they love meeting and hanging out with our guests, telling them about all the great things there are to see and do. We’re a family here, and everyone that comes through our doors is a part of it.
