  • Krista and Eric's apartment is a great getaway from everything yet close to town.
    Ten minute drive and you are in the center of everything.
    The apartment is huge, clean, fresh and ready for guests. We would love to stay at Caribou again.

  • We had a fantastic stay at the Caribou Hostel! Krista was extremely friendly, and we received a warm welcome at the hostel including fresh eggs from their chickens. The suite was spacious and clean, and the location is excellent. We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay, and will definitely be back!

  • This was a great find near the town of Golden. The Caribou Hostel was very accommodating to our late arrival, and we were in constant communication in the days leading up to our visit. We were even running out of gas close to their place and they were very concerned about us!

    The family suite was more than enough room, and was clean and comfortable. Even for a big group, the family suite could easily handle more people.

    Krista was very kind and helpful with suggestions for hikes and restaurants in the area.

  • Krista and Eric have an amazing piece of property just outside of Golden - very secluded and serene and the hostel is more than what we needed. We only stayed a night but if we are back in Golden we will be booking here again, we didn't get to meet Krista but Eric was happy to share their sons toys with our little guy. I wish I had a chance to stumble to the Moberley pub, I was there years ago and it was a blast! Thanks again Krista and Eric!

  • My wife, daughter and I enjoyed our stay at Caribou Hostel. We drove in from Kelowna BC and it was great so settle into our ENTIRE SUITE after a long day on the road.

    The location is a little ways from town and the suite is quite basic in terms decor, interior and details but has most everything you need for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed being able to cook and the dozen farm fresh eggs that were ready and waiting on our table. There were some kids toys around which was nice for our daughter. We didn't venture too much around the property, partly due to mosquitoes and time restraints. We also didn't have a lot of contact with Krista as we were in a separate building but we felt well taken care of by her.

    One thing worth noting is it that if you have the downstairs suite it's easy to hear those above you. Tammy said they are considering installing an insulated ceiling which would probably make a big difference. It wasn't a major issue, just consider booking upstairs if you're a really light sleeper.

    Overall we had a good stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Caribou Hostel to anyone.

  • The Caribou Hostel is a great place to stay. Very convenient because close to several nationals park within an hour or so. We enjoyed to be in such a quiet place surrounded by the forest and mountains and close enough to the town facilities. We felt like home when we arrive, the Suite is huge and neat and have everything you could need to cook, play outdoor games, watch movies... have fun! Krista and her family are very friendly and take care of their guests!

    August 2013
  • We had a wonderful stay with Krista! She was welcoming and flexible and she was so helpful with maps and city information. The location is great! They have chickens and the eggs in the morning are great.
    Definitely recommend it! Thanks Krista.
