One of my favorite hostels in the world. The owners are on site most of the time and remember your name and after a day of skiing always ask you how your day was. The little things that count. Beds and matresses are awesome even in the dorm rooms. Never stayed in a private room but they look like they... More

Super clean, Super comfy and with Excellent facilities. Fantastic management and crew. After long days enjoying the great outdoors there's no better feeling than sitting in one of the super comfy couches and relaxing by the fire place. After traveling in more than 30 different countries and staying almost exclusively in hostel accommodation this place is the best Hostel I... More

If you want to pay to stay at some cranky old guy's house this is the place for you. My friends and I went out our first night in Golden, and didn't get back to the hostel until late. It was four of us, but we were only given two sets of keys and I had to ring the bell... More

Thank you so much for your review. We are most disappointed you didn’t enjoy your stay here at the Dreamcatcher. We especially enjoyed being woken at 3am by drunken guests (who declined the offer of extra front door keys). Your 4.30am friend taking a fully-clothed shower was a definite highlight for us, particularly as he couldn’t stand so was falling... More

Ive stayed in many hostels, and this one is top notch. Very helpful staff, great atmosphere and amenities, and most importantly a super comfy bed :) If your in the area, I highly recommend this place.

Reflecting on pretty much what every other guest has stayed here has said. It is amazing! Excellent location 'downtown' Golden. Amazing people that stay here. Walking in through the door felt like coming to your moms house. Greeted by two beautiful dogs. Abi, Gerald and Florian were so welcoming. The facilities are great, kitchen, lovely 'real' fireplace, lovely soft and... More

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
