5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I had a good experience , Ian was up late and was bale to check me in after 10. He gave me a good rundown of where everything was at .He gave me some good tips on where to get food , gas and where and when to see sites and good hiking spots. The cabin was very clean and so was the bathroom .

Want to experience nature? This is the place!
When the place advertised no running water or electricity, I was a bit worried, but given how all other area hotels were booked, I didn't have much of an option. It turned out to be a great experience. They have a kitchen with all the needed plates, pots, pans, utensils, etc. Plus, the Lake Louise hostel allows you to take showers there, which completely eliminated fears of staying there. I had great fun meeting other people during the stay, so would I go back? Absolutely!
