- Quaint & hip 1890's renovation. - The owner and family are super sweet. - Hot tub, sauna, pool table, fire pit, tipi, dome?!?!? - Very clean rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, landscaping, and tub. - A 10 minute walk to restaurants, bars, grocery stores, & gift shops. - Typical hostel guest silliness at times, but not worse than anywhere else!

We recently spent a weekend at the Golden Tree hostel, in the Yurt that sits among the apple trees. The hostel is quaint and well kept, with an outgoing host (Alex) who makes you feel comfortable and at home. A well stocked kitchen allowed us to make a birthday apple crisp with an assortment of apples picked fresh from the... More

This is a very, warm, friendly place. It reminded me of my travels through Europe and South Africa. It is located within easy walking distance of the commercial district and is very reasonably priced compared to the other options on the island... Great value!

Really great! The owner renovated the whole building and the other facilities like the Sauna or the barn with a Pool Table with so much love for Detail! Great Job ;) If you are looking for a place to stay on this Island there is no better option ;)

Ian and Alex run a wonderful hostel - just the perfect place to chill. I was kayaking for 5 days and coming home to relax and soothe sore muscles in the hot tub and sauna. The kitchen has an excellent gas range and a sunny table to eat and read. The hostel is a restored wooden house, with plenty of... More

I had a great time at Golden Tree Hostel during my stay on Orcas Island. The atmosphere is incredibly relaxing, the staff is friendly and attentive, and the value is the best on the island. Thanks for making my stay a great one!

My wife and our two kids (ages 9 and 11) came and spent 3 nights at the hostel. It was a perfect mid point between camping and staying at a hotel. The bathrooms are clean, the kitchen was very helpful with providing a place where we could make a few meals and the management was very knowledgeable of the area.... More

My husband and 4 year old son and I stayed at the Golden Tree for two nights and had a great experience. We stayed in the upstairs family room with a double bed and bunk beds. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was clean and had everything you needed plus they had coffee on every morning!!... More

We were @ this hostel/ hotel for 3 very welcome days of our 2 week San Juan Island camping trip. We saw flyers in a local restaurant and called. They said, "Come on over and we'll get you registered." Upon arrival, we were greeted with a lovely welcome, a tour of the property and an invitation to sit on the... More

I typically look for B n B's when I'm traveling solo for the opportunity to meet other travelers. The Orcas Island B n B's are quite pricey and as a last minute trip, I couldn't find anything available. I was referred to the Golden Tree Hostel by another cycling friend and she gave it great reviews. I've actually never stayed... More
