  • Description


    Greetings from our Hostel! We are an owner-operated hostel in Golden, British Columbia; a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. We cater mainly to active and outdoorsy people, and not to the party crowd. Our common area is closed after 11pm and we have a quiet time 11.30-7 in order to ensure all our guests can enjoy a good sleep and be well rested for the adventures to come. We have two friendly dogs, a little toddler and we enjoy hosting travelers from all over the world.

    It's a hostel! What better way to meet and work with people from all corners of the world! Plus we have a car that you may use to go and explore the six national parks that are within day-trip distance. And have we told you about the canoe, the SUP, the bikes and other toys that we have at the hostel and that are yours to play with? On top we can get you deals to go for a thrilling rafting trip, or ride a Gondi to the highest restaurant in Canada (don't forget to visit Boo the Grizzly on the way!)

    What else ...

    Golden is within a 1 hour drive of 6 national parks so there is endless hiking to enjoy. Kicking Horse ski hill is a 15 minute drive away and this is the number 1 winter activity. There are two rivers running through Golden, one used for whitewater rafting and the other is great for canoeing and wetland sight seeing. There are numerous cross country mountain bike trails a mere 10 minute ride from our front door, and the list goes on. We love leading an active life and we strongly encourage our staff to do so also.
