Located in Golden, British Columbia, this place is ideal for a stop when heading towards the Rockies.
Its part of the Hostelling International chain, but it puts the Banff hostel to shame. It's an enviromentally-friendly 3 floor alpine lodge thats barely a year old.
We booked a private room (they have dorms) and we amazed to find it was a nice as a hotel room, big bathroom, tv in our room.
The hostel has a fantastic cafe right in the lobby and plenty of chill-out areas, as well as a kitchen on the lower floor.
Awesome hostel, helpful staff, throughly recommend.
