    The spaciousness & details were nice. The beds were comfy and clean. What made ember stand out was the excellence of the team! I observed Tyler, Mabel, Adrian, Josh, everyone at the desk skillfully anticipating & resolving guest needs, going above & beyond to create a culture of safety, community, and fun. The communication & management skills were so inspiring and impressive. The amenities made me a comfy guest, the loveliness of the team make me a repeat guest :) Will return & recommend.

    Had a wonderful stay here in fact I liked it so much I stayed there twice. The staff where very friendly and helpful and they kept the facilities extremely neat and tidy. The guests that I met during my stay where also very friendly and inviting which I think had to do at least in part to the comfy cozy atmosphere of the place. Had a great time and if I’m ever in Denver again this is where I’ll stay!

    this place costs over $50 for a night yet does not serve any breakfast at all nor do they provide basic sanitary items like soap and shampoo. i've stayed at hostels all over the world in far less developed nations than is the US and gotten those things. some fruit for breakfast and even cheap soap and shampoo would've been just fine, but they didn't even provide that, a faux pas in my view. it's why i gave it a lesser rating on value for money. otherwise, the place is just fine.
