We are a cozy 12 bed traditional backpackers in Golden BC. Famous for its champagne powder at the Kicking Horse Resort in winter and exceptional mountain biking/rafting in summer our hostel is ideally placed to enjoy this playground. Our firepit is fantastic for sharing tales of your adventures with new friends.
Greyhound stops at the Huskey gas station on Highway 1. From here it is a safe well lit 10 minute walk to the hostel. From the gas station walk towards Highway1 keeping to the pedestrian markings. Walk towards the East/Calgary direction of the highway. Cross the highway at the pedestrian crossing and then follow the markings for bike/pedestrians. At the Golden Town Centre turn off again follow the bike/pedestrian signs that will take you across the road and onto a designated path. Follow this path approx 50 m until you get to the deer gate. At this point walk 5m across the grass to your right & join the road (Station Ave) Follow this road approx 200m down the hill & round the corner. The hostel is on the left hand side opposite the rail tracks.
From Highway 1
Station Avenue, which the hostel is located on, is a road accessed directly after the turn-off from Highway 1. From Highway 1 (either direction) take the turn-off for Golden Town Centre. You want to take the first turn-off to the left which is only 10meter or so after you turn off the highway. The turn-off for Station Ave which the hostel is located on is only a few meters before the slip road which takes you back onto Highway1 towards the East/Calgary/Banff. If you cross over the railway bridge or the sign for Highway 95 you have gone too far. Once on Station Ave Kicking Horse Hostel is approx 250meters away on the left hand side.
From Highway 95
Follow the signs to take you to Highway 1 Calgary/Vancouver/East/West. Follow this road up, round and over the railway tracks. Station Ave is located on the right hand side only a few meters from the slip road that takes you onto Highway 1 towards the East/Calgary/Banff. Look out for the Green overhead Highway 1 signs & literally just before them is Station Ave. Kicking Horse Hostel is located 250meters away on the left hand side opposite the railway tracks.
