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.

Lors de la réservation, nous avions compris que les équipements seraient rudimentaires, mais il n’était précisé nul part qu’il etait impossible de prendre au moins une douche!! De plus, l’hôte n’avait pas notre réservation dans son listing (faite pourtant en plus de 3 mois avant!!) et n’a pensé a aucun moment de nous indiquer qu’une auberge HI neuve venait d’ouvrir à 5km de la!

Very gracious hosts, super location right off Maligne Lake Road. Room would be a little cramped if full but I had a 6 cot room to myself. Security was a bit sketchy as anyone could park and walk right into the unlocked kitchen cottage, and the sleeping quarters had very flimsy door locks, but that's not to say that I felt worried.
