Features of the hostel

Whether you’re skiing or ice climbing in the winter, mountain biking in the summer or looking for a comfortable stop on your journey through the Rockies, the Canmore Clubhouse is your perfect base.

We’re located 4.5 km from downtown Canmore, Alberta on a sunny bench overlooking the Bow Valley – far enough away to be completely quiet and close enough to take advantage of all the amenities of town. The views from the deck really are unbeatable.

Our three buildings offer accommodation to suit any traveler. The main Clubhouse is suited best to small parties and individuals, the Bell Cabin is perfect for small groups (up to 15) and extended families and the Boswell Cabin offers private family rooms for those looking for a little more privacy.
