open All Year in Jasper National Park
Escaping crowds, tourists, commercialism and a pumping nightlife, Jasper yields an attractive alternative for anyone seeking a small town retreat or wilderness escape. Exploring Jasper National Park will give you a sense of how small you are and how incredibly creative Mother Nature is. The hostel overlooks the Athabasca Valley, which is part of the Arctic watershed. Bring an inner tube, a lunch, because in 6,000 Km's you'll float into the Arctic Ocean near Tuktoyuktuk. Backpackers and Hostellers all agree that HI-Jasper if affordable accommodation for everyone smack dab in one of the worlds best playgrounds!
Private and Shared Rooms.
Four simple private rooms, a female and mixed shared dorm are available in the hostel. When we say shared we mean shared! Experience our 40 bed mixed dorm and enjoy a sort of vintage hostelling adventure, this is perfect place for large groups and the room is nicely split up to give an illusion of privacy. One rule for our dorm is lights off at 11pm, yup so we recommend you bring a head lamp. Oh and don't be that guy with that plastic bag!
Stock Up before you Come Up!
We aren't on the main drag of Jasper, we aren't main drag kind of people. Being half way up Whistlers Mountain just a few minutes from the Jasper Tramway, there isn't much for supplies around here. Before you head up to the hostel, be sure to pick up your groceries, beer and supplies in town, then once you get here kick back and enjoy the social atmosphere as you cook dinner alongside fellow hostellers.
Gateway to the Wilderness Hostels.
HI-Jasper is a great place to learn more about the local wilderness hostels in area.
