    Loved my stay here. First time at this location and it did not disappoint. Walking distance to a lot of cool places and bus stop. I did not bring a car to Denver so the location was great.

    One of the better hostels I’ve stayed in. Great kitchen, facilities, and very social guests. Staff was very kind and it was very clean. I also appreciated the general respect and privacy in the rooms. Sometimes a 6-8 person room can be a bit loud and rowdy but the little curtains provided more dark and privacy than expected The only downside was it’s access to transit, as I did not have a car and would have liked to be more mobile. (And uber/lyft is expensive in Denver).

    This is a great little hostel. The employees are very friendly and helpful. It's very clean and quiet. I loved the fact that it was a keyed entrance so there wasn't a curfew you could come and go as you pleased. Another feature that I enjoyed were the rain showers.

    Super great place! Decent location: multiple bus stops nearby, lots of different places to grab food & drinks on the cheaper side, different city attractions within 20 minute walk. Very quiet at night except for a few people on the streets yelling. Just be cautious if you’re alone outside at night! Only major flaw was the water pressure in the showers & sinks was awful. Top bunks could use another handle for climbing up. The staff were helpful & there were lots of common spaces to hangout.

    It’s a cool little hostel for sure. The lobby was insanely comfy. Location is pretty good. The beds are comfy and clean. The people were chill. They have really good amenities for being a hostel. The only thing was that it’s really expensive. Could probably get a cheap Hotel for that price. The staff was super helpful and fun. Definitely my best hostel experience. Would stay here again but probably in my own room ;p
