I understand that this hostel is closing in May. I am looking forward to visiting the new one in Jasper when it opens in May.

The dorm situation was as expected, but I assume it was just coming into dead season, there were no hostel activities organised at all. Seems like just one person running the place and if you arrive/need help whilst they're busy or doing the shuttle run, you could be waiting a while.

Thank you for providing feedback regarding your stay. During the winter season, we do run a Smores night on most Saturdays, when we have staff available, however we do not have other organized activities during the winter season due to a smaller staff and smaller number of guests. That said, guests are welcome to have a fire at our indoor fireplace, or our outdoor firepit any night. As we are a small hostel, we do usually have only one staff member on duty, so it is possible during the winter months that guests may need to wait for about a half hour for assistance from a staff member. We do our best with a small but dedicated staff to create a welcoming space and to guide guests towards experiences in the National Park. We hope you had a enjoyed your time in Jasper.

Overall our stay was very good. A refresh of the kitchen equipment, cutlery, pots and pans etc won't go amiss.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are glad to read that you enjoyed your stay. We have recently purchased a few new sets of pots and pans to replace some of the older ones in our kitchen, and do monitor and regularly replace the kitchen tools and cutlery as needed. We hope you enjoyed your visit to Jasper National Park.
