    It's a unique hostel that provides a lot of amenities that the typical hostel may not provide and a cozy atmosphere. Also liked the privacy curtains over the beds and close proximity to public transportation. My biggest disappointment was not being able to use the jacuzzi. I will definitely return if I ever come back to Denver.

    I havent stayed at a hostel in five years and was pretty apprehensive, this was the most awesome experience. the building was something out of my childhood dreams, the staff was awesome (thanks Tyler!), and everything felt super clean and safe. Never quite felt too busy even at capacity. overall smooth experience. and great location!

    The place was really chill. I extended my night another stay I liked it so much. The blackout curtains over the bed are nice and they have complimentary earplugs if you need them. All the areas were clean and staff was really helpful. Next time I'm in the area I'd stay again for sure.

    This was my very first hostel stay and it is BEAUTIFUL. I chose it specifically for the curtains on the bunks, giving guests much needed privacy. All female dorm was sold out but I had no issues with the co-ed dorm. Staff were super nice except one cleaning lady who seemed to be in a rage over something and I could hear her cursing and banging through the bathroom wall. Check in was easy. Given parking pass. Individual shower rooms were convenient, as were the two separate bathrooms on my floor.

    Definitely the cleanest most modern hostel I have stayed in. The curtains on the beds are a super idea for both the person sleeping and the late arrival

    It was dank. It felt a bit too grungy and gross.
