Group Bookings

HI Athabasca Falls is a basic facility, across the road from the falls of the same name and 30 minutes south of Jasper. This is one our best hostels for group visits. You’ll have plenty of elbow room both outside and in our huge kitchen and common room, where your group can feast around our giant dining room tables. Please refrain from dancing on them, you’ll be tempted.

Groups Information

We took our annual May long weekend trip to Jasper in the Northern Rocky Mountains and rather than stay at an expensive hotel, we chose to check out the Athabasca Falls Wilderness Hostel. What an awesome surprise it was!

Tanya Koob, Family Adventures in the Canadian Rockies

Just note that there is no running water here. However, there is clean drinking water available for use, electricity, and wifi. It was relaxing, Well worth checking out. It's solar panel powered as well!

Great Canadian Road Trip Tips

HI hostels  are all over the country at ideal stopping points. With a hostel, you’ll get a comfy place to sleep, kitchen facilities to help you feed yourself while sticking to a budget, hot showers and you’ll still get to meet other backpackers along the way (and maybe pick up a new passenger), which is a heck of a lot better than trying to sleep in your car.
