Poised alongside the Maligne River, just above the spectacular depths of Maligne Canyon, this serene hostel is an all-season destination. Travellers will enjoy an array of hiking, cycling, and cross-country skiing trails. The nearby Skyline Trail offers one of Jasper National Park's most scenic hikes. This is a Wilderness Hostel, so please note that there is no running water and outdoor toilets.

Maligne Canyon Wilderness Hostel is a truly rustic hostel, for those wishing to gain an authentic outdoor experience amongst nature. There is water for drinking and cooking which may require boiling prior to use, but no showers or flush toilets. A self-catering kitchen is available on site.

Alberta is a breath-taking place, as vast as it is varied in landscapes and experiences. Situated in the heart of western Canada, Alberta is bordered on the west by the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains.

Hostel staff was friendly and it was fun hanging out with everyone in the shared kitchen. Major downside for tall people is that the bunk beds do not fit people taller than 6 feet and there's no way to hang your feet off comfortably.
