  • The breakfast is just amazing. The hostel provide for you all the bed sheet, as well as towels free to take it. The location is really good, just beside train stations and buses. The hostel is in Downtown Calgary, near from malls ans a lot of attractions. Sometimes the staff was not at the mood to give information, but they were never rude or unavailable. Thank you guys for my day in Hi City Center Hostel.

  • I stayed here for 2weeks and had a great time. Met some boss people. Location is excellent. Convenient to the train and bus routes. Staff are very accommodating and always keen to help. Would have no problem going back.

  • I had great fun at Hi-Calgary. It was a brilliant combination of the right people in the right place on the right moment. The hostel is close to the city center, but also close to a rehab facility and in the middle of a couple of construction sites. There are a lot of homeless people in the greens around the hostel, but in the time I stayed there, none of them misbehaved or bothered anybody. No need to feel disconcerted about them.

  • I loved my stay here.Free tea and breakfast in the morning was a wonderful bonus, and for the price, it really can't be beat. Lots of seating in the kitchen and a nice common room. The walk is very short to get to the downtown area and the staff was very helpful. Parking was difficult at first, but that was because of an event going on nearby, and it was easy enough to move the car to the free lot the next morning. I would highly recommend this hostel for your stay in Calgary.

  • The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and the location couldn't be better. I felt secure that my luggage was safe and the atmosphere was great as I got to meet fellow travelers from all over the world. I would recommend this hostel to anybody travelling through Calgary and I feel that it is great value for the money. It is located right in the heart of downtown Calgary and therefore makes getting around the city quit easy and accessible. I plan to become a member and recommend it

  • Had a good nights sleep in a a bright, clean, comfortable, and secure hostel that had helpful relaxed staff who made the stay enjoyable. The free pool table and big screen satellite TV made for a friendly atmosphere and even the making of new friends. Decks and couches made for many comfy places to sit and relax after your day is over.
