The hostel provides basic but clean & comfortable accommodations to outdoor enthusiasts & independent international travelers.

All bedding/towels are provided as well as a complimentary pair of earplugs.

The hostel is a 100 year converted railway cottage & is located directly across the rail-tracks from Golden town centre. Both the town & the Greyhound can be reached by a short 10-15 minute walk.The ski hill at Kicking Horse is 14km. Banff, Yoho, Kootenay & Glacier National Parks can all be reached within an hours drive. I may be able to pick you up from the bus station so please email me if you would like this service.
