    Ember Hostel was really great and had good facilities for the price. The jacuzzi was relaxing and a good way to coax other travelers out of their rooms to meet each other. The free coffee/espresso was also a nice touch. The bed was super comfy and I slept well. Location was also an easy walking distance from a lot of museums and breweries.

    Really nice hostel and friendly atmosphere. First American hostel that I've been in and it really matches the vibe of other global locations, even if it's a little more than what you are used to paying. For sure stay here if you are stopping in Denver.

    Great atmosphere. You're gonna meet a ton of cool people hanging out around the fire pit & hot tub in the back. The staff is very cool. The facilities are immaculate. **comfy beds with curtain & personal power ports* They have their own parking lot with 20+ spaces for anyone driving It's a bit pricey, but the vibes alone were worth the extra 10 bucks a night over other hostels. Great stay. I'd recommend this spot to anyone swinging through denver for a couple days.

    This place is awesome! It's the best hostel I have been to - the place is amazing, the attention to details is great. You'll love it. The only thing is I found it a bit expensive to be a hostel and not offering breakfast, but anyway the facilities may justify the price. Super recommended!

    The staff were exceptionally lovely and the guests were a friendly and diverse bunch. The building was pristine and the fire table and hot tub are a big plus. The central location is very convenient as it's a short direct bus ride from Union Station and only and hour and a bit from Boulder. The only problem for me was the price, which is 5x that of a European hostel. This seems to be the nature is the local hostel scene for the moment, which is a shame because I would have stayed for longer.

    Loved the staff and the house. It is a very beautiful place with a wonderful lounge and patio. The staff was friendly and attentive. I really liked the single showers and the privacy bunks. The only thing keeping me from giving it a perfect score is that the kitchen was really small and did not seem to have enough space for all of the guest's food and that the designed of the beds makes it a bit hard to climb into the top bunk.

    This hostel is a bit on the pricier side, but overall I had a good trip. The bed and pillow was comfortable and I was able to get a good nights sleep. The shower rooms and bathrooms are pretty cramped... and very warm for some reason? The common rooms were nice, it’s located in an old house so it has a gothic feel. Staff were all friendly and helpful. The location is okay, right down the street there’s an amazing taco place - go there for happy hour! Overall, good place, I’d stay again.

    it was good location near the downtown, but the staff interaction i had was really bad . 1st the girl at the reception was rude i told her during my check in that my flight is in evening i hope i can keep my bags till then. i was there only for couple of hours i paid but she wouldn't even let me sit outside just even for hour and the whole place was empty it's not like i was holding up space for people who checked in. it was horrible how she asked me 2-3 time to leave the facility after noon.
