So the last HI related hostel we have stayed at was in Fernie called Raging Elk Hostel.
I was a big fan of Fernie, both the town and the hostel. Huge shame about the Mountain though – I will try to review that later. Fernie is a great Hippy town, with some great places to eat be it cheap or expensive. The Hostel is right next to the Greyhound (a nice change from Banff where it is miles away). Note: The Eastbound bus to Vancouver/Nelson etc leaves at 3am. Everything is in walking distance, and the facilities are great. They have a whole floor below the hostel with Huge Screen TV, huge common area and big kitchen. The Bunk beds were not the most comfortable but hey they are bunk beds! The bar/café has some great staff that were very helpful and the Rib night was very good. These Ribs were like Dinosaur bones and very tasty. The Ski bus also leaves from just across the street!
I would recommend this hostel as it was very convenient.
