Scotian recommended a place to stay while here, Hi-Edmonton Hostel, and its paid off. Not only is it cheap, a lot of the guys that are staying here are either working in the sands or looking for work. Great way to network and find leads on gigs! Will keep you guys posted on any developments.

Awesome -how much per night at the hostel?

33 per night. If you have a hostelling membership card you get 3 bucks off. Check out their website as well, they have deals like "Stay 3 nights, get 4th free"
