Yoho National Park Hostel

Hostel Yoho National Park

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

HI-Yoho National Park, The Whiskey Jack Hostel is a true gem of a hostel that is a must do stop on your trip through the Canadian Rockies.

This wilderness hostel is lucky enough to have both showers and flush toilets in each 9-bed dormitory. Being a much smaller hostel, the atmosphere is much more welcoming for even the shyest of travellers to meet up with people and find hiking partners around the campfire at the end of the day.

The hostel is just short walk from Takakkaw Falls, one of Canada's five highest waterfalls. The adventurous may want to walk 1.5km to the base of the falls and feel the icy cool mist. In the morning enjoy hikes to the Iceline, Yoho Lake or Twin Falls.

This hostel is a SUMMER ONLY facility, open from late June to September, so please check dates of operation to avoid disappointment!

Rustic atmosphere (no electricity) would be great in a nice weather, we happened to sit in the dark with the door open for ventilation as it was cold and raining (in Sept). Could you make exceptions and let people stay inside in the bad weather? I would love to see compost separated from regular garbage, even though it's tricky in the bear area.

It was great, though I wasn't as keen on having to stay in a dorm style room.
