    I enjoyed the soft sheets and blanket on the bed at this hostel. The outdoor fireplace is really nice, and so are the showers. The "living room" is well decorated and there were plenty of places to sit and work when needed. There are also plenty of nice restaurants and bars within walking distance of this hostel. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Overall, would highly recommend.

    Ember Hostel was truly a wonderful place. It feels like a Victorian home. The front desk personnel were absolutely wonderful! Great location. Easy to find the bus to get you to other places. Loved the privacy curtains for the bunk.

    My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights and we had an absolutely amazing time! The atmosphere was great and super chill for the end of our week long Colorado trip. The patio was a great place to wind down with the other travelers staying. The location was good too right in the heart of the Capitol Hill district; short walks to bars, coffee, food and entertainment, and a short drive to the other neighborhoods. We will definitely stay again!

    Laid back k atmosphere, friendly staffs, knowledgeable at what they do and keep the places nice and clean inside and out as so do those who stays! Definitely recommend others from anywhere to check out the spot. Don't forget to make a reservation before midnight if you plan on checking in after midnight. Bad mistake on my part just a few minutes late... Thank you all!

    This was my first time staying in a hostel in the US. The hostel itself is in a beautiful building, very central location near lots of food and close to public transportation. The beds were very comfy and the curtains provided great privacy. Staff was super nice as well. As for the cons, the hostel doesn’t organize any activities and the people aren’t very social. The hot tub is also closed until December. I had bought some stuff to put in the fridge, and despite labeling it it was stolen.

    Beautiful hostel, good location, good people. My only suggestion would be to add some kind of air circulator in the dorms. They got really musty by my second night there.

    the hostel is clean but staff isn't very nice and there's no amenities given. Definitely not worth the price.
