Caribou Hostel

Completed: October 15, 2013

Caribou Hostel boasts a rentable 1400 sq ft cabin with two self-contained suites, both of which are perfect for families, groups, and couples. Larger groups can even book the entire building for exclusive use.

A perfect place to stay while exploring the outdoors, the Caribou Hostel is close to the Blaeberry River, Thompson Falls, Northern Lights Wildlife Centre, and the Rocky Mountain Buffalo Ranch. The Moberly Pub is just a short walk through the property.

Caribou Hostel’s new site, launched in November 2012, was an amazing project for Eggplant Studios. The complete WordPress theme is extremely modular, and a breeze for the client to maintain.

The Caribou Hostel recognized that their business required a new site to help them promote their hostel through outlets such as Airbnb and TripAdvisor. Specifically tailored for SEO, the site will grow to be a powerful presence for accommodations in Golden. The HTML5 layout, with strong keyword analysis combined with features like a blogging section, will keep the site strong for years to come, with metrics we can measure through Google Analytics. We wanted to keep the site clean and welcoming, and very user friendly.

The new site boasts a lot of cool features, both on the outside and on the back end; and it is one of the projects I am the most fond of. Please have a look through their site, and don’t forget to stop by for some of their amazing breakfast baskets!

We contacted Eggplant Studios needing an entirely new website to be up in a relatively short amount of time. Eggplant Studios responded to our needs quickly and efficiently. Throughout every stage, we were updated and consulted, and any issues that we encountered were dealt with immediately and to our satisfaction.

Eggplant Studios offered a fair price and probably put in more work than originally anticipated. We are 100% satisfied with our website, and we noticed more traffic almost immediately. We highly recommend Eggplant Studios.
