So, my friend and I ended up on Orcas Island this past friday and were recommended this quaint hostel on the northern end of Eastsound. When we pulled up the atmosphere was friendly and warm, and our tour of the property was thorough. Our price each came to $42, $2 being a towel rental. Fair enough, we weren't complaining. we...

Just when I thought I would have to leave this beautiful island Ian opened his home/business to me and I was able to stay until I found more permanent housing. Long story short this hostel is unlike any other in this country and the owner is an amazing human being. I suggest everyone put down their jobs and crazy lives... More

My recent visit to Orcus island was wonderful. I stayed at the hostel in town. The owners were so helpful and it had a family feel. The grounds are beautiful. Enjoyed the hot tub and the fact it was so close to all the stores and market. I would definitely stay again

This place is a gem-- super cool staff, clean comfortable beds, nice bathrooms (the first ever "great" shower I've experienced in a hostel!), fantastic fire pit, and a very nicely-stocked kitchen for cooking. Located just outside of Eastsound, the Golden Tree is perfectly located for biking, hiking or kayaking adventures on the island. Definitely will be back!

We spent the 4th of July weekend up on Orcas Island at Golden Tree Hostel and it was amazing. This place will charm your socks off. I have stayed at hostels all over the world--including Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver Canada--and this is one of the best. Breath-taking scenery, friendly people, GOOD free coffee in the mornings, hot tub, sauna, fire... More

As far as I'm concerned, it's the only place to stay on Orcas Island. About 10 days ago I googled "places to visit in the NW without a car" and what came up? None other than the majestic San Juan Islands (which I previously thought must be lesser known islands in the Caribbean). 2 days later I was en route... More
