HI Calgary City Centre Hostel

I like staying at Hostelling International's (HI) hostels because most of the times, they are wallet-friendly for broke people like me. My first HI Hostel's was in New York. I have not get a chance to talk about it yet. Maybe later, when I start updating about my New York trip (God knows when it will be!). So, it was a no-brainer for me to choose and stay HI Calgary City Centre Hostel when I went to Calgary for the first time last year.


But honestly, I was contemplating a bit at first because I found another cheaper hostel but thank God, I decided to stay here. It was everything that I expected, in fact, it was even better. What I liked so much about HI Calgary City Centre Hostel was the location. It is located right at the downtown at the East Village neighborhood.


You can easily walk to few main attractions like Calgary Tower or Fort Calgary (which I have not been yet, haha!). Otherwise, it's only 4-minute walk from and to the CTrain station, which is pretty neat. The CTrain may get you to everywhere you want to be, and you may board the CTrain for free if your destination is in the free fare zone.


I stayed at their female dorm which was a 6-bed room. The room was spacious enough. A lil bit bigger than any other hostels that I have ever stayed. Bed lines and towels are provided at check in for no charge. So you don't have to use your own. Also, you'll get your own locker. You just need to bring your own lock.


Additionally, they offer complimentary breakfast. It was like any other hostels' breakfast. Bread, bagel, jam, and free flow juices. I obviously took the advantage of free flow juices as juices are expensive in Banff. Hahaha *sad life*

Hi Calgary City Centre Hostel also has other amenities as well such as bike storage, communal kitchen, a lounge, a game room, a guest computer and laundry facilities. I didn't get to fully utilize all the amenities but I loved the communal kitchen as it was spacious and clean, and the lounge because it was so comfy!

I actually loved my stay at Hi Calgary City Centre Hostel because it was comfortable and really worth my money that I decided to stay there every time I was in Calgary. Think I've stayed there at least 3 times in the past year. That's how much I love HI Calgary City Centre Hostel.
