A great urban hostel located where the fun is in Edmonton's historic Old Strathcona neighbourhood. HI - Edmonton is located just off Whyte Avenue, the coolest strip for shopping, pubbing and clubbing, near the University of Alberta and across the river from the downtown core. Everything guests need is within walking distance and the infamous West Edmonton Mall is only a short bus ride away.

HI – Edmonton is open 24 hours and has a variety of facilities on offer including a TV room, games room, self-catering kitchen and a BBQ. With Internet access, laundry facilities and a lovely garden to enjoy, guests have everything that they may need catered for.

Edmonton has a welcoming, small-town feel but with the conveniences of a large city. Places worth visiting include, The Winspear Centre, Fort Edmonton Park and Rutherford House Provincial Historic Site.

I've stayed in a lot of hostels throughout the world (in HI whenever possible) and HI Edmonton does NOT live up to HI standards. Old building, no breakfast, terrible staff (neither helpful nor nice), no AC (hot as hell in summer), towels are ridiculously small, only one sink in the lady's bathroom. I love HI but not this hostel!
