My sister and I stayed here for a couple of nights in a room with an ensuite. The room was large and very clean, as was the bathroom. The owners of the hostel, Gerald and Abi, are most welcoming and gracious hosts and very helpful with suggestions to dine, hike, etc. The kitchen and common area was large and bright... More

This is the nicest hotel or hostel I have stayed at from many different angles- we were tired after a long drive and before we even checked in Gerald suggested we borrow their bikes to unwind and outlined a nice loop trail we could go on and restaurants we could stop at. He and Abi have a rare perfect blend... More

From the moment you arrive you feel welcomed. They are charming people with two beautiful dogs that run a hostel that instantly feels like home. It is very organised; there are great facilities for cooking, laundry etc and they are very knowledgable about the area and so are very helpful with advice. Also they have a wonderful communal area for... More

This hostel was the perfect place for family to stay at during our trip to the Rockies. This hostel was our homebase while visiting Lake Louise and Yoho National Park. The owners are professional, friendly and kind. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They were also very helpful at giving us advice on activities to... More

One of my favourite things about this hostel is that everyone has to remove their shoes at the front door - this keeps the place noticeably clean, especially our room. We had our private washroom and a comfortable bed. The common kitchen is well stocked with appliances. The owners are very engaged, friendly, and on top of everything. They also... More

Hi, Thank you very much for taking the time to review us! We are always grateful for feedback and enjoy reading what our guests think of us :-) I am especially happy that you get it about the shoes!! We didn't start off with that rule but after a while it really made sense and we are definitely much cleaner... More

We had a great time in Golden and specifically at Dreamcatcher Hostel. Our children, ages 5 and 2, loved the dogs and enjoyed visiting with other guests in the common area. Abi and Gerald are wonderful hosts and gave us good suggestions for activities with the kids. The set up of the private rooms is great for sleeping with kids,... More

This was my first time staying in a hostel and I was happy with our stay. Hosts were friendly, helpful and accommodating. The large open common room was very relaxing and the entire place felt clean and organized. Only 4 stars because there was no AC in the room. Golden is a cute little town and the hostel is within...

After a long and testing drive with two small children it was like stepping into a little haven. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable owners. Comfortable, clean and welcoming environment. We stayed in the family room with shared bathroom. The beds were comfy, the bathroom immaculate. Our little boys loved the friendly dogs and large communal kitchen/lounge. Wouldn't hesitate to visit again... More

This would have to be one of the best hostels we have stayed in while travelling through Canada. We arrived in Golden without a booking and went first to the other hostel in town across the train line, it looked terrible! We are so glad we ended up at Dreamcatcher. From the moment we arrived Abi made us feel right... More

Abi & Gerald (along with Boo & Doski the dogs) set the bar so high that it makes every other hostel looks bad. Open style Kitchen is spotlessly clean, wood fireplace at living room to mingle with other guest. Beds are comfy & warm, their dorm is only 4 or 6 people, so never have to share with too many...
