Opening June 2019, this hostel will offer beautiful communal spaces, convenient perks and affordable rates.

There are no strangers at a hostel, only friends you’ve yet to meet. And meeting friends is almost too easy at the new HI hostel, with a beautiful, fully equipped communal kitchen, comfortable hang-out spaces, and fun programming like guided hikes, Jam Nights and more.

Originally located partway up Whistlers Mountain, the new location is a walkable distance from the train station and more convenient for travelers without access to a car. Built from scratch, this affordable accommodation is fully wheelchair accessible and will add more private room options. Other lodging options include shared rooms for four and family rooms.

But you didn’t come to Jasper to sit in a room. Early check-ins can stash luggage and head straight out for adventures. When you return, keep your bike or skis in the hostel’s dedicated storage and relax in the fireplace lounge or in the sauna, grab a bite at the on-site cafe or just take in the views from the patios. Find new adventure pals in the media room or games room (there’s even a meeting room, for professional pals). Cook for yourself in the hostel's large kitchen or BBQ outside.

A stay at HI Hostel also means additional discounts around town, including (but not limited to): 20% off Jasper Rafting Adventures and 15% off lift tickets, rentals and ski lessons from Marmot Basin. Save further by getting a HI Hostel membership, which earns cheaper rates at HI Hostel locations around the world.

Even if you go to a hostel alone, you never feel lonely while you’re there.
