Hi, I was wondering what this hostel is like in terms of location? We hope to stay in jasper for a few nights but wont be hiring a car, is it far from the town? If not, does it offer transportation into town?
We are located about 7km from town and up a mountain road.
During our summer season, there is a shuttle run by Sundog transportation going from the town up to the hostel several times during the day from around 8:30am to 5:00pm. This shuttle costs $5 each time you take it, and runs until October.
During our winter season, we provide a shuttle to town, leaving the hostel at 8:20am and 6:20pm. The same shuttle returns to the hostel from town at 8:30am and 6:30pm.
Outside of those times, you would need to take a taxi which costs around $20 each way.
Hi Victoria! I wouldn't recommend staying here if you won't have a car. We spotted a few people asking for rides on the road to downtown. And it's a somewhat long walk. Think about your schedule as well, if it's tight you maybe won't have time to this hike everyday, twice. I don't know about transportation offered by the hostel, but I don't think there's any.
Hi, Victoria. It's a bit far from town for someone without a car. Besides, it is located on top of a hill, so you have to do some hiking to get there. I dunno if they offer any transportation into town though.
