Kicking Horse Hostel


Kicking Horse Hostel


Due to Covid_19, the hostel is now closed until further notice. I hope all who have visited along with their friends & family come through this pandemic safely. 


Please note that the private rooms are upstairs in the attic & as such have quite low ceilings. If you are over 6ft/1.85m you may bang your head!

Public transport to Golden. Currently, there is a bus running daily. Tickets can be booked on www.riderexpress.ca There are also some options to get you to Banff/Lake Louise. Banffairporter, Brewster & discover Banff all have services into Banff National Park.  There are several rideshare webpages that can get you from Calgary/Banff to Golden. Poparide & on Facebook 



PLEASE NOTE: This hostel has age restrictions. Private rooms 14+,  Dorms 16+. Both dorm rooms are unisex.

We will not under any circumstances accept abusive conduct, this includes but is not limited to racism, sexism, theft & drug use. This hostel caters mostly to international, well-traveled, intelligent people. THIS IS NOT A CHEAP MOTEL Narrow-minded nonsense will not be accepted!

No outdoor shoes inside - it is very easy to get the place soaking wet from melted snow! If you can remember please bring some slippers/flipflops for inside

hwThe hostel welcomes Hostelworld guests. Did you know though that it is generally cheaper to book with the hostels direct? HostelWorld owns pretty much all of the hostel booking websites from Hostels.com to Lonelyplanet.com & due to this monopoly they are increasing their fees; you may have noticed the increase in deposit from 10% to 15% in Canada. This deposit goes directly to HostelWorld, not the hostel. Likewise Booking.com is not free; commission costs are factored into the price you pay when you book through them. It is always cheaper to book smaller independant hostels direct.


Kicking Horse Hostel is pleased to support local charity Little Mittens. The charity looks after abandoned cats and tries to find forever homes for these animals. They also run a successful TNR program (trap neuter return) which aims to reduce the number of feral cats in the area. Currently, the hostel fosters 2 cats from the shelter. They too live in the hostel so if you are not a cat person & especially if you are seriously allergic to cats then please consider this information before you book as the hostel cannot guarantee a cat allergen-free environment. The hostel is small, you won't be able to avoid them!
