Kicking Horse Hostel is Golden's original backpackers and has been operating for over 15 years. We are a small 15 bed hostel that provides a comfortable welcoming base for travellers to experience some of the best outdoor activities that Canada has to offer. Check out our links page for information on some of these exciting activities

As of May 1st 2012 the hostel is under a new type of management. I (Tanya!) have leased the business for at least the next 2 years and am already putting a number of improvements into place. A good deep spring clean and new linens/towels/kitchen equipment has been followed by a program of redecoration both inside & out. If you visit us in the near future please bear with us as you are bound to meet me with a paintbrush in hand!

With regards to my own background, I came from a very different industry to this one! For the last 10 years I was a sales manager in the pharmaceutical industry. I have always loved travel be it within my own country of Scotland or further afield. A few years back I was lucky enough to travel around the world and it was this trip that made me realise that I wanted to be involved with travellers permanently. In the main I always stay in hostels when I travel, it helps with the budget so I have more money to spend on activities but it also is a great place to meet other like minded people. My friends & I would always say "I wonder who we will be talking about next week that we haven't me yet?" It is the people you meet that can make a holiday as much as the destination & for the Kicking Horse Hostel I hope to help create an atmosphere that makes this more possible.


I look forward to meeting you all soon!
