Welcome to our hostel

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.

Très sympa auberge de jeunesse, très bien placée à Jasper. le seul point négatif est le manque de salle de bain et les WC secs qui ne sont pas très agréable. Tout le reste est parfait!

A really wonderful wilderness hostel. Even during the high season it doesn't feel very crowded. A nice way to escape the crowds of Jasper, but still really easy to access. The manager is a friendly and knowledgeable guy.

I servizi igienici erano veramente inaccettabili. Mi è capitato altre volte di avere esperienze in Hostels ma un livello di pulizia e di igiene così scarso nei bagni non mi era mai capitato. Consiglierei vivamente di provvedere per ovviare a questi inconvenienti. Inoltre anche la pulizia delle camere era veramente molto molto scarsa.
