Don't waste your money staying at this place. It is not a vacation spot but rather a hangout venue for non-paying guests. The place was noisy in the daytime especially if you just wanted to take a nap and late evening hours. Kitchen was not accessible for paying guests because it was overtaken by non-paying guest or owner's friends. Floors... More

I've stayed in Hostels all around the world and the Golden Tree is one of my favorites. Ian, the owner, makes sure all his guests are taken care of and has done a beautiful job fixing up the property. It really has it all.... Garden, trees, hammocks, fire pit, large kitchen, hot tub, pool table, lawn games, bikes, books and... More

The Golden Tree Hostel is not your average hostel, folks. Don't let the name fool you, as this place has all the perks of a 5 star hotel without the crowds, the prices, or staff simply aiming to get your money. Ian is a remarkable host and his love for this home and the guest experience is evident in every... More

You won't find a better deal or a more relaxed vibe on Orcas Island than the Golden Tree. It is a steal for a place you are usually paying a premium to hang out at. I've rented the entire Golden Tree twice now with group of friends and we've had nothing but fantastic times. Ian has been an awesome host... More

That's no joke, sitting on the back porch from late afternoon till dusk or the front porch in the morning with a delicious local coffee blend or enjoying it in the luscious green garden around the fire, the dome, the shedd with pooltable or the hottubb area. Besides all this I strongly recommend the sauna, still no joke. The host... More

Golden Tree Hostel is truly a magical place that was crafted with so much love and attention. There are many options for rooms, including private rooms, family-style spaces, and dorm rooms. The history of the place has been maintained and there's a cozy, but very clean and intentional style about the place. If you really want an extra special experience,... More

On a complete whim I found myself rolling into Golden Tree last week. With an initial intention on entertaining a very fleeting stay - my first ask of owner Ian was the most economical way for me to ensure both shelter and security for my luggage, without batting an eyelid he responded; 'There is no theft here'. Now I understand... More

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
