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

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...

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.

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
