michael.haber The Miette Guest House is a good place to stay in Jasper. My room was very clean and good equipped. The only negative aspect is that it is not possible to cook in the fully equipped kitchen. Overall I had a nice stay and would come again.
cancerisin Emilie was soooo incredible. She just went above and beyond what anyone could expect at a hostel. She gave unbelievably good advice about the Skyline Trail. She also gave us a ride to the trailhead. She was chatty and friendly and made a beautiful fire to keep watch on. She treated us as people and not tourists which was so refreshing. It was such a good experience. Thanks Emilie!
yehoshuah Very quiet and peaceful setting for this lovely hostel. Electricity and heat, but no running water. Not a issue for dirnking or cooking - the well works great - but if you want to shower you need to use the very acceptable outdoor bladder with boiled water. An experience, yes, but very functional. Excellent staff (Jordan was managing at the time) who helped us to consider how to best use our time considering our objectives as well as alternatives considering the weather. Was sad to move on to more cosmopolitan setting when the time came.
vincenttb I stayed in the hostel for four nights in summer 2010 and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Pros are the beautiful location up a mountain, near a hiking track, the availability of bikes for rent and the really good opportunity to meet new people as the common room offers plenty of opportunities for that. Cons are the relatively remote location (7 km uphill walk from Jasper) and only seven daily shuttle buses going to town, limiting my liberty to go whenever and wherever I wanted. Quality of staff varied enormously, the majority being very friendly, listening and helpful - but there was also one staff member being Queen Disinterested. Please put on a smile... You're in the Rockies!!!
