An absolutely charming old period building, beautifully maintained. Good atmosphere. Staff were always helpful and friendly, really great location not far fro anything. We went on some eally good walks right from the doorstep. We arrived by train which turned out to be a great adventure but very haphazard schedule. We were supposed to arrive at the hostel about 8pm and were many hrs late. We phoned from smithers adn it didnt worry the staff at all.

Alles prima. Die Erneuerung der Kopfkissen wäre sinnvoll.

We had a great stay in the hostel, it was all very clean and the staff went out of their way to help us. The storage of food system in the kitchen seemed to work well. The only thing that could have been improved was more space outside in the sun, it was really hot, but maybe this is not an issus most of the time!

Drapes across doorways of Dorm room so that privacy & night noise could be managed...this is a place that suffers from early and very late comings & goings due to transport schedules. To improve air quality in this room easy enough to fit roof vent.
