Honestly the best hostel I've stayed in during my past ten months of travelling. From the amazing kitchen to the free juke box and feather duvets, I couldn't fault it. Both Gerard the owner and Tania, the lady working here are welcoming and even went as far as to pick me up from the bus station and leave me back.... More

The hostel is managed by a couple originally from Britain. They were the nicest hosts ever – they gave us many useful pointers on what to do in and around Golden. Our stay afterwards in HI Banff was very disappointing, so that I would recommend to spend a little more time in the less busy town of Golden than in... More

We are two friends travelling around Canada for seven weeks. We stayed at the Dreamcatcher Hostel for five nights in June and we loved the place. It is definitely the best hostel we stayed at throughout our trip. Everything is very clean, there is a big kitchen where you will find everything you need for cooking, the common area is... More

The friendliest staff and a great atmosphere at this place! Clean, cozy, lots to do. The tag even made a point of fixing my own reservation mix-up. The dogs are my fav! If you're going to be in Golden, make this your stop!

If it's not already, this place should be on one of those top 100 lists of places to stay. The place is immaculately clean and tidy, the owners (who live in the hostel) and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It has a huge common area and kitchen with comfy couches and chairs to lay back in after a hard... More

The Dreamcatcher is a very "homey" hostel that feels more like you're staying at a friend's or family member's home than a hostel. The staff and owners are extremely friendly and show a genuine interest in their guests and their stories. The hostel was very clean, the beds comfortable, and well-located to a variety of restaurants, bars, and shopping in... More

I rarely post reviews, but this was hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed in! I've traveled the world staying in hostels and have never come across one that this was this clean and friendly. The owners actually live there which makes a huge difference. They're created a very comfortable and connected atmosphere in the common area. The two... More

I brought two of my friends here for one night as we were road tripping through the mountains. The hostel is very secure, quiet, restful, easy going and organized. Our room was perfect for the 3 of us with 2 sets of bunk beds. We had a private bathroom and never heard any of the other guests. I would recommend... More

This may be one of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in. Places to stay in the area are few and far between - especially on a budget. Dreamcatcher was the answer to all of our problems. Great price and a great, comfortable place to rest our heads. The hosts were incredible and so welcoming. We stayed in a... More
