The weekend of our stay was rather loud with a family gathering of 4 families in the lodge and nowhere to escape. However, Jen the host made up for all the obstacles with her choclate bliss from www.roadhouse-arts.ca

Great location for climbing groups. Hostel has a dedicated rope drying room so there is ample space for gear. Other highlights include wood stove and outdoor sauna. Great location if you want to be in the mountains without the crowds.

Cleanliness needs to improve. Also our group of 5 senior women were treated in a demeaning and disrespectful way by Steven, the host. I have sent a long review to trip advisor explaining all the details and at least 3 of my friends have written to HOSTELLING international. I will not be staying at this Hostel again.

I am sorry to hear that you had such a negative experience with us this past season. I do hope you will consider returning to our hostel, as we are now under new management. Jennifer has transferred over from our Beauty Creek Wilderness location and her primary aim is to offer a safe and respectful environment for our guest to feel comfortable in.

Quiet, clean, nice manager, it was the perfect location for the bike ride I was doing, and not busy (which for me was a plus)
