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...

That was by far the best and most hospitable hostel I've ever been. The building is really nice, with a big and cozy "living room" downstairs. The rooms and beds and mattresses were like at home, so I directly booked another night the next morning. Not to forget both owners: they made me feel like home and gave me great... More

The owners of this hostel really go above and beyond. The service was absolutely 5 star. The room was cozy and quiet, the entire facility was spotless and extremely comfortable. The kitchen, dining and lounge areas were huge with ample room for food storage and meal preparation for everybody. Friendly atmosphere, really nice to wake up to two big pots... More

Owners Gerald and Abi run a truly amazing hostel. Beds and bedding are very comfortable and the place is very clean. I felt as if I were with family. We did get bit unruly and closed down the bars don't believe Luis you just need to be mindful and respect those with whom you chose to share a home with.... More

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

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

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.
