  • We are a travel party of 3 - two adults and a 15 year old. Your chalet shows two double beds, but the description has only one double bed. Could you please clarify. This would be for July 17, 18, and 19 with checkout on the 20th. Thanks!!

    Hi there, I believe there may have been a typo. The private cabin should have 2 double beds. You can also try booking directly at hihostels.ca as it should be more up to date. Kind regards, Lucy

  • Is this a hotel or a condo set up

    We are a Hostel, which means that for the majority of our accommodation you will need to book a bed for each person in your reservation, and then these beds will be in a shared dormitory room with other guests. We do however also have a variety of private rooms available, some of which are rooms with bunk beds, some of which are rooms with double beds. We also have a couple of private cabins available, which contain two queen size beds.

    Our prices fluctuate based on the length of your stay, the time of the year and day of the week. Without seeing your reservation dates, I couldn't confirm a price. But if you're interested in booking, you can do so online or give us a call!
