The stay at the Lake Louise Hostel started out with a smooth, easy friendly check in. As the first night progressed I started to wonder if I made a mistake staying here. Until about 2:30am the first night it was like trying to sleep in the middle of a fraternity party. Doors were slamming, walls (and even the bed) were shaking and music was playing.. After that first night things got much better and quieter. Great location, nice rooms, comfortable bed, excellent staff, great kitchens.

Where next?

I'm headed to Banff and Jasper. Waterton Lakes NP in Southern Alberta is a great spot in the summer and fall as well.
