What we have to offer:

Wicked Hostel Calgary, Calgary's newest and ONLY backpacker hostel owned and operated entirely by backpackers, for backpackers. Nestled in the heart of the Calgary Beltline, Wicked Hostel is the closest possible accommodation to the Calgary Stampede Grounds and Saddledome, in fact, it's just across the street. We are also the closest hostel to the Calgary City Train/Transit system. The Calgary City Stampede Train Station is also literally right across the street so you don't have to worry about hiking 2 km with your backpacks wandering around searching for your hostel. We are located on 17th Ave only three blocks from the Red Mile; Calgary's famous party avenue. We are 4 blocks away from the trendy 4th St. and Mission entertainment and shopping areas (dining, drinking and shopping) For a bit of mall shopping its only a few minutes by train to Calgary's Chinook Shopping Center. We are a 5 minute walk to the Calgary Tower and heart of Calgary's downtown, 2 minutes to the Talisman Center (Olympic training facilities/pools/track), 2 minutes to the nearest local deli/grocer and 15 minutes to the nearest national-brand supermarket (less if you take the bus).

Do you like the word "free" because we offer all of the standards you should be used to like free continental breakfast every morning, free tea and coffee all the time, free linens (we even make your bed up for you before you arrive), we will even do your laundry for you for free if you are staying for a week or longer. Feel like calling home but don't have a phone card, well we've outfitted our computer room with Skype Phones so you can call overseas to over 40 countries (land-line numbers) absolutely free. And guess what, we have free parking too, something not often found in Calgary. We also provide planned activities like group skating or tobogganing in the winter or *floats* down the Bow River and free BBQ's in the summer. Sometimes, we just decide today's a good day to do a communal free supper for everyone. We even have a digital movie projector for "I've-Hit-The-Wall" Tuesday movie nights (projected on the wall) so you are free to relax have a hectic weekend exploring Calgary.

We also thought after hiking down the Bow River trail, sight-seeing around downtown Calgary or just spending the day in Banff skiing, you might want to get a good night's rest, so we fit all of our beds with hotel-quality pillow-top spring mattresses.

For security we have CCTV cameras throughout the common areas and corridors as well as keypad-locked front door (locked after 9pm). For the security of our guests, we only accept genuine backpackers carrying government-issued out of province/country ID and luggage/backpacks. We require a security deposit for group bookings of 5 or more and will not accept student groups, stag/stagette parties and guests under the age of 18.

So if you are the kind of person who wants to make the most of their stay in Calgary and are looking to stay in the newest hostel with the best location and staff that really understand the needs of backpackers, please check us out.
