    The hostel has a lot of great features! I love staying in a bunk that has curtains for privacy. It is always great to have a space to lock up your stuff! The under bed lockers are massive. You can fit 2 small carryon luggages & a backpack under there! Don't forget to bring your own lock. Only 1 person is allowed in the kitchen at a time due to COVID-19 restrictions. It was nice to have access to on-site parking. There are lots of comfy places to hang out on the 1st floor. Nice staff too!

    We only stayed a night but it was great! The Bathrooms are clean and spacey, the beds comfy and the house overall is so cozy and beautiful! Security only got four stars because at some point during the evening a couple showed up that bragged about how they sneaked in. Maybe check the back door too? The staff was super nice and friendly and very helpful! I would definitely come again thank you guys :)

    I’ll never understand why hostels charge almost the same price as hotels in the states but this was was great! Good WiFi, hot and clean showers, small kitchen but has everything you need, beds are comfy and it’s in a good location.

    Awesome place to stay! The area is just a little dodgy in comparison to LoDo but I still felt very very safe since you need a key to get everywhere. The beds and blankets were so comfy. The showers were luxury. The environment was just on point!

    Best bang for your buck, amazing place. A slight incident happened late night while I was picking up my pizza delivery. A few intoxicated guests walked in and accused me for making the delivery guy wait so long when I literally had 2 minutes until I met him. So I defended myself while they were being loud in front of the gentleman that was working at the front desk at the time. Afterwards he pulled me aside and apologized for what happened. Would stay there again for sure. Thank you.

    Great place but few issues. Little on pricey for hostel. Has great decorations but room itself (at least downstairs) needs work. Bottom floor beware, smells like food and men's gym lockers. No ventilation. Hard to sleep if you don't like smelling everyone while you sleep. Other issue is staff is not really friendly or smile at all. Especially kid named tc. Very rude and serious. Also rooms need vacuuming. Curious how it's highly rated. No hostel should cost over 30 bucks.

    My take: 1) parking space sucked and without any fence to protect a vehicle 2) I didn’t feel safe in the neighbourhood I was in, had to power walk from my parked car (some 15-20 yrds away) to the entrance, looking over my shoulder constantly, 3) the facility had outdoor space for 420 cliental, but what outdoor spaces were for non-420 visitors like myself? Additionally, I kept getting 2nd hand 420 smoke from the people smoking outside while I was inside creeping through the windows.
