    Very nice hostel. A bit pricey, but there aren't too many options in Denver, especially if you're looking for a hostel with less amenities. Multiple large locker options (that can be locked with your personal lock) to store your gear/luggage and feel secure about it. One under the bunks and another in a locker storage room (bring lock). Very nice facilities. Bathrooms and showers were always clean upon usage. Cozy lounge to hang out in and fairly easy access to bus lines to get around town.

    The cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in! Ember has nice showers, one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in (better than most hotels, a million times better than any other hostel), a hot tub, and a fun quirky atmosphere.

    Chose Ember for the rated cleanliness and comfy beds, but will return in the future because the staff is on point and cool people. Atmosphere, location, and the 12 person hot tub are tops.
