The 3,363-metre peak of Mt. Edith Cavell towers over our little hostel set in a narrow valley below this spectacular setting. An ideal base from which to explore Angel Glacier, Cavell Meadows or Tonquin Valley. This is a Wilderness Hostel. No running water, outdoor toilets and NO electricity.

While this is a spectacular location, the kitchen was pretty dirty and the larger bunk rooms were more noisy. The toilets were also pretty poor and quite smelly. While hostel manager was friendly, he took too long to go through all the rules, although he knew we had stayed in other HI rustic hostels. The relief manager at Rampart creek interacted well with guests and therefore we had a more relaxed stay there.

Je crois que je me suis trompée et que le précédent envoi concernait l'HI de Jack Whiskey (Yoho).
