DirectionsShow MapHide Map
From Highway 1 take the turnoff for Golden Town. When you leave highway 1 look out for a wooden fence on the left hand side (around 20 meters after leaving the highway). Turn left down the hill before this fence. This road is very easy to drive past! If you drive over the bridge that crosses the railway line you have gone too far, turn around!. Once on Station Ave you will drive down a hill & past some finished/unfinished townhouses, the hostel is approx 200 meters past them on the left hand side.
From Highway 95; Head as if you are going to Highway1. Turn right just under the overhead direction sign for Lake Louise onto Station Ave. The road will bend down the hill & take you past some finished/unfinished townhouses. The hostel is 200m further on on the left hand side.
