We stayed for 2 nights, on our main day it was recommended to us that we mountain biked. The owners of the hostel kindly took us up the mountain and even cycled some of the dirt tracks with us to make sure we were OK! They checked up on us when we got back too, a really nice touch from... More

I spent one night at the Dreamcatcher last week on my way to Penticton. It's a really special place. Spacious, clean, with lots of chairs and sofas for lounging, a piano and guitars for anyone interested, nice rooms that are close to all the sites of Golden (not the most attractive town, to be sure, but pleasant enough for an...

The owners are wonderful. They will always set my family up for different excursions. This visit we got to paraglide, kayak, Quad up the mountain and bike down a mountain. The food is wonderful and we will go back again and again to visit them and the beautiful mountain scenery. The location is handy for the shops, banks, and bars,... More

My husband and I stayed in a private room at the Dreamcatcher hostel for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. It's located in a great area with several restaurants and a grocery store nearby and it's easy to get to Yoho and Banff parks by car. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with local suggestions. Our room and... More

Stayed at various hostels throughout BC and this has to be the best of the lot. Comfortable beds, large shower rooms, very helpful staff. Highly recommend, we used as a Base Camp for a local white water rafting firm as we thought we would make the most of being in the area.

Myself and four friends stayed here for one night before flying into the Esplanade...I have stayed here before - it is superb - very clean - comfortable rooms and our family rooms had en suites - perfect....we did not use the kitchen facilities but were impressed by the spaciousness and cleanliness. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

I wish we could have stayed more than one night. So friendly and comfortable. Our private room had everything we needed. There is some noise from the railroad, which I guess could be annoying to some people in summer when you need the windows open, as there is no air con (but there are screens on the windows). The communal... More

I stayed only 1 night on my way through Golden from BC to Alberta and this hostel left me wishing I could stay an entire week.

Warm welcome and lots of helpful info on hikes and things to do provided up at the front. Lovely common room with comfy sofas and board games and musical instruments to borrow. Quiet hours are enforced and it's clear that the staff care and maintain the building well. Bunks are functional and wifi works pretty well.
