Wicked Hostels Calgary was just what I was looking for. I wanted a cheap place near Saddledome so I could watch the Flames game and also pretty close to the airport. Parking is limited there but I got a spot and was able to walk to the game. It looks like the hostel offers great activities throughout the week but I didn't participate. I also missed breakfast but it is included, as well as bedding and towels. They even provide complimentary laundry service. My four-person room only had one other guy so it was nice and quiet!
Wicked is fab for meeting people if your travelling on your own! Staff are also really friendly. Free breakfast is good too and kitchen facilities are great ! Great toilets and even make up area with free hair dryer and curlers for girls! Free towels and laundry service too! Totally relaxed hostel you room doors are left open but there’s a locker for important things (take your own padlock). Not much room in the dorm for bags either and bed very creaky. Power source at my bed didn’t work either so had to risk leaving my phone on the floor and night but was lucky to still have it. Only let down is the price! Really pricey for a bunk bed in a hostel
This is one of the best hostels I have stayed at. I stayed in a private room which was basic but had everything I needed. (The bed was so comfortable). The location of the hostel is also really good, just a short walk to the city centre. The amenities were great too - free breakfast, free wifi, clean and very private showers. I loved the sarcastic signs all over the hostel. The only two negatives I could see were the fact that there was no elevator which meant I had to lug my bags up the stairs (although, a staff member did help me which was great and unexpected) and the front was very slippery and covered in ice but I guess that’s just Canadian winters for you. I very much enjoyed my stay at Wicked, Calgary and I will definitely be returning for the Stampede. The hostel is right across the road from Stampede Park
Definitely the best hostel that I saw in Canada. Super clean everywhere, beautiful bedrooms, free PC use and free prints, free laundry service. All the people inside were so friendly and full of energy. A great place.
Being travellers in our 20's we wanted a place to party and meet others - and that's exactly what we got. Clean rooms and bathrooms, but the highlight was the staff wanting everyone to be included and have a good time. Activities seem to be held every night, ranging from trivia nights to local pub crawls. Great spacious kitchen/common room facilities, free laundry and free DIY breakfast pancakes! Right on the cusp of the CBD which is very handy. A great couple of nights.
