Property Description



Get ready to kick back and enjoy the swankiest retro hostel experience of a lifetime in our 9,000 sq ft historic mansion with boutique amenities and chill people! Ember is curated to warm your toes and feed your soul.

Designed with boutique comfort: train car style bunks with pillow tops mattresses, plush king size pillows, in-bed outlets/lights/storage and privacy curtains, as well as individual full tile showers.

All that and a revered social atmosphere! Kick back by the fire pit on our friendly patio, join friends in the gigantic 12 person hot tub, or grab some espresso and read a book by the original fireplace. We also offer secluded co-working space for the digital nomads!

    Ember was amazing!! One of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had. The staff was so nice and kind. The place was spotless and so clean. Also, the activities were so much fun. Max is one of the best event planners I’ve ever been around. I would recommend this hostel just so that you get a chance to go out/do activities with him. He put on one of the best bar craws...and we’re talking about Denver on a Thursday night. He even bought us food. Stay here if you have the chance.

    I previously stayed in Downtown Denver for a work event but decided to book my stay in Cap Hill. The hostel was walking distance to local bars & clubs (~8 minutes), as well as the bus station that takes you to Downtown and Union Station for free (~15 min). The ambiance was also really nice with a cool looking communal area. The staff was also very friendly!

    Ember was by far one of the most “homey” hostels I have visited. The staff was very welcoming and inclusive. I stayed in the 16 person dorm style room and LOVED the pod style beds!! The showers and bathrooms were extremely clean. Their living room was filled with interesting conversation and people from all over. All around, a great experience. Bummed I forgot to bring my bathing suit, the hot tub looked amazing 😍.

    Location, cleanliness, amenities, and atmosphere are all a solid 10. The full time staff were top notch but some volunteer staff were highly unprofessional at times. Overall would recommend.
