Welcome to

HI Rampart Creek

HI Rampart Creek, Wilderness Hostel

Highway 93 N
Banff National Park, Alberta
T1L 1B3

About half way between Banff and Jasper, HI Rampart Creek is a hiker's and climber's paradise with trails just out the door and bolted sport-climbing routes a five-minute walk away. After all that exertion, sit back in the hostel's wood-burning sauna, breaking only to take a dip in the nearby glacier-fed creek.

  • The Weeping Wall, bolted climbing routes & trails nearby
  • Chance to relax in the sauna or by the fire
  • Off-the-grid living: no electricity & no running water

There's also a common area lounge with fireplace, an outdoor fire pit and a wood-burning sauna.

Groups Information

What I love about Rampart Creek is the scenery. In my opinion, it is the most beautiful of the hostels and your jaw will drop if you step outside the hostel on a sunny day to look around you at the surrounding mountains. 

Tanya Koob, Family Adventures in the Canadian Rockies

Fantastic hostel experience steps from the highway. Dont miss the sauna, bonfire, and a chat with the entertaining caretaker!

Dustin McLachlan

We stayed for one night whilst cycling the Icefields Parkway from Jasper to Lake Louise. We didn't expect many facilities, but what there was surpassed our expectations.

A recent report by the QMI agency was released on the Journal de Québec website recently. It said that in the last decade 60,855 young people from across Canada came to work in Alberta. Impressive, right? Is it a search for adventure or for money? Whichever you're after, you've come to the right place!

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.
