Hi,can anybody tell me if there are any cheap hotels or hostels in downtown edmonton ?
Does the sky shuttle go to the downtown area from the airport and whats the cost of it. thanks
Hi. The only hostel I know of and that I know people have used is the Hostelling International one. It's not downtown, but just off of Whyte Avenue, which is a popular strip on the south side of the river. Shopping, restaurants, bars, people, near the University and river valley, excellent public transportation. If you took the LRT (train), it would only take you 10 minutes to get downtown.
What's your budget for accommodation? There are quite a few hotels downtown, so you shouldn't have a problem finding anything. Let me know your budget and I can help you narrow it down.
The Sky Shuttle does go downtown. You have to book ahead if you want to get dropped off at your hotel. The rate is15 one way for an adult. Schedules on the website.
When will you be in Edmonton?
