You have to stay here for Stampede. Its right across the street, everybody parties, the Aussie who owns/runs the place is a Boss. They do your laundry for you which is clutch and are tolerant of late night coming and goings. But book EARLY! Pay the cancellation if you have to, but if your even considering going, book now.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hostel as a first time visitor to Calgary and solo traveller. Location: The location is great just across the road from the C Train station Victoria/Stampede, this system is so simple to use and allows you to get around town easily. It is also at the end of 17th street so a bit...

An excellent hostel, that I would highly recommend to any backpacker. The beds were comfortable and the hostel has a great atmosphere, there is also free computer use and a phone to make free international calls, the breakfast was also very good. The staff were also great and would often go out of their way to help.

So the outside of the hostel looks a bit scary? But once you get inside it's a super nice and friendly atmosphere. It's really clean and provides a good nights sleep! They offer breakfast included and free laundry, computer and printer access and also a long distance phone! The female dorm and showers were lovely and had hair curlers and...

This was a nice hostel with very comfy beds but have stayed in better. Had to wait 10 minutes when I arrived to check in because their desk isn't always manned which is kind of frustrating especially if you want to ask for advice on what to do. Breakfast was good - toast, cereal and pancakes. I found it odd...

GREAT place to stay I would recommend it to anyone! Free parking and they're right downtown! They have an ironing board, hair straighteners, curlers, blow dryers, close up mirrors, super private showers! Everything is super clean! I honestly wish I was here longer! They are AMAZING!

this hostel had a great family vibe. Beds were a little squeaky and if you have a room downstairs can get noisy at night. Besides that it was a great hostel. With everything you could ask for even free calls to all around the world.

The location is just about a walk from downtown, but you wouldn't want to do it as it's not a stranger friendly neighbourhood. The staff were pleasant enough, the breakfast provided was OK and the rooms were satisfactory. Good to see the staff cleaning the communal areas.

"I stayed for one night at the Wicked Hostels @ Calgary. This was an example of providing quality facilities in a simple and elegant fashion. Absolutely wonderful and charming in the middle of the city and surrounded by friendly staff. The reception and kitchen were all trendy and cool. Best part is their free laundry service and free international calling....
