HI-Calgary City Centre

Location Information

Our friendly and experienced staff is available 24 hours to answer any questions about the city, tours, and things to do. They're always happy to recommend cool places for you to check out. In the summer, you can't miss the Calgary Stampede - the "Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth", and other great festivals!

Exploring Calgary is easy from our central location - a quick walk takes you to the city centre where you can find dining, shopping, entertainment and cultural districts for every taste and budget. Other attractions are easy to get to with the help of the nearby C-train (free transportation within the city centre).

If you're looking to explore the great outdoors, ask our front desk staff to help you plan and book your sightseeing tours to the Rocky Mountains, Drumheller, historical sights, and British Columbia.
