Want to meet other amazing world-travelers and enjoy loads of free amenities (even laundry is free) and have a crazy good time while you are in Calgary? Then check us out!

WARNING: Boring, sterile and lifeless is the OPPOSITE of what we are - so if that's what you are looking for then Wicked is likely not for you.

FREE NIGHTS - Book for a 7-night stay, and the 7th night is absolutely FREE! (but only book 1 night through here! E-mail or call us, or extend your stay when you arrive to get the discount!)

LONG-TERM DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE - And we can help you find a great job here in Calgary!
We also have FREE PARKING and FREE LAUNDRY SERVICE!

Nestled in the heart of the Calgary Beltline, Wicked Hostel is at the corner of 17th Ave. and MacLeod Trail, opposite the Calgary Stampede Grounds and Saddledome. We are also the closest hostel to the Calgary C-Train/Transit system. The Victoria Park/Stampede C-Train Station is literally right across the street! We are 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). We are only a few minutes away by train from Calgary's Chinook Shopping Centre. We are a 5 minute walk to the Calgary Tower and heart of Calgary's downtown, 2 minutes to the Talisman Centre (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).

Why stay at Wicked hostels? Well, we are a backpacker-owned hostel run entirely by backpackers. We've been in your shoes and we've tried to make our hostel match and exceed the best amenities we've seen. When you arrive, our friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff can assist you with all your travel needs. We can help you find what you are looking for in Calgary, make suggestions on great places to visit here and even help you with your forward travel plans to other regions. There is no curfew; we're not here to tell you when you can have a good time. We do ask that people are courteous and quiet after 11:00pm, so that anyone wanting to can get a good night's rest, but if you decide you want to hang-out in the common room at night or cook a midnight snack you can go right ahead. We have free internet computers and free WIFI throughout the building, so keeping in touch is easy and affordable! One thing you won't find here is a T.V. Instead, you will find a friendly, comfortable common room with cozy leather couches, board games, playing cards, an iPod dock and lots of other interesting backpackers. We also do 'I've-Hit-The-Wall' movie nights every Tuesday (projected on the wall) when you just want to relax after a hectic weekend of partying.

We also have a free continental breakfast every morning; free tea and coffee all the time; free bed linen (we even make your bed up for you before you arrive!). And guess what, we have free parking too, something very tough to find and also very expensive anywhere in the Calgary City Center. We also provide planned activities like group skating or tobogganing in the winter or *floats* down the Elbow River and free BBQ's in the summer. Sometimes, we do a free communal supper for everyone!

For security we have CCTV cameras throughout the common areas and corridors as well as keypad-locked front door (locked between midnight and 8am).

***For the security of our guests, we only accept genuine backpackers carrying government-issued OUT OF PROVINCE or INTERNATIONAL ID and luggage/backpacks. ***
**You must be over the age of 18 to stay here**

Stampede Packages: Stampede bookings can be made by calling Wicked Hostel directly. We still have accommodation open. Due to our location, our beds are filling up very fast. So call us soon, if you are planning on staying in Calgary during Stampede.

Cancellations must be made 24 hours before your scheduled arrival to avoid any charges. During the Stampede (July 5-14, 2013), 7 days cancellation notice is required.

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.
