Kicking Horse Hostel


Kicking Horse Hostel


We are open!

To comply with regulations the hostel has reduced capacity so guests have a little more space to move in. Nothing has changed with the upstairs Sheiling private rooms, but downstairs the dorm has been changed about. Right now there are 4 dorm beds in the main dorm & ive changed the old 4 bed dorm room into a private room (Glenelg). As access is via the same door, booking will be either/or for the dorm or private room. It will be possible to book this whole space which would be great for a family or larger group. Yes, this summer Im allowing the kiddies to stay so there are no age restrictions :) I havent quite managed to put this permutation up on the booking site so please contact me direct to see if this option is possible.

Summer Costs:

$80 Private room for 2 people (Sheiling - upstairs, Glenelg - downstairs) Dorm $30 per person.  Glenelg & Dorm $150 (6 people) Whole hostel $250 (sleeps 10) All taxes etc included. If booking through an online travel agency such as Booking.com prices will be much higher as they take 15% commission. Book direct! 






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


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!
