Liked: Amazing location. Block away from Colfax Avenue and within walking distance of 16th Street Mall and LoDo.

Disliked: Rooms segregated after booking mixed. Hours of front desk are not convenient. No lockers for your belongings. Most people staying here are moving to the city and so they stay here for a month or longer while working and looking for a good apartment in the city. If you are a traveller or person who likes to enjoy the nightlife you will have to tiptoe through the rooms and halls at night to not distrub the working class.

Liked: I liked its location, it was very convenient for getting around town. Everything I needed was in walking distance.

Disliked: It hasn't been well maintained. I tried to spend as little the as possible in the room. Our balcony door had a gap about 6 inches high so it was very cold in the room.

05 October 2013 Paul would recommend this property

Liked: I loved the location - i wish the States would get more into Hostels period.. and create better "CHILL" rooms, and separate game, laundry, TV, etc rooms.. I loved the employee's as well :)

Disliked: It was dirty, it could do with a great renovation for sure.. and a roof top "chill" zone would have been perfection!!

Liked: Close to 17th, even though on a not so nice street

Disliked: How much would it cost to go to Ikea and get some new bed linens and pillows? Nothing gave the impression of being clean. The mattress was ancient, the blankets too. A little remodeling would turn this place around. i liked having a curtain to wrap around my bed, but again, can't you buy a decent one at walmart?

Liked: Good location, rooms had bathroom and kitchen

Disliked: Dirty. The other reviews weren't kidding, it is gross, but if you know that when you go in at least you wont be surprised. I wasn't aware of any common area and rooms had their own kitchen (which was good) but didnt really give you the chance to meet anyone. Also no lockers available. hostel kind of has a creepy feel to it.

Liked: The location is good.

Disliked: Well... It is kind of a dirthole. Very, very basic accomodation. But you get a warm place to sleep at night. The location is quite good, ten minutes walk from Civil Center and right around the corner from Steubens where you can get a burger, fries and a beer for $5 after 10pm. I would not book this hostel again, but Denver is really slim on other options... Consider going to Boulder instead.

25 October 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location was pretty good, near clubs and restaurants and not too far from downtown. The staff were friendly and there were computers to use (though the office hours were a bit inconvenient). It's definitely not as bad as all the other reviews make it out to be. It's more just like living in someone's old apartment, and for the money you're paying, it's alright.

Disliked: The rooms don't get cleaned everyday (once a week I think), so the rubbish in the kitchen and bathroom piles up. It's strange to live with the kitchen in your room, so may be disruptive if there are lots of people and you are trying to sleep. There is no common room, so you won't really get to meet a lot of people, aside from those in your room. Make sure you take note of the office hours for checking in, and also that they only accept cash.

Liked: location is pretty central. one street away from the dodgiest street in Denver, but it was ok when I was walking during the day/night.

Disliked: its not convenient to have such limited office hours for a hostel, most people arrive during the day... so have to wait til 5pm to check in. The room was like an apartment, crammed full of some of the worst bunks I have ever encountered. kitchen was in the room which is weird, and relies on other travelers to clean up after themselves. one tiny bathroom in the room. hard to meet other travellers. I wouldnt stay here again but then all the hostels in Denver are pretty bad. Also far too expensive for what you get.

Liked: I did not like anything about this hostel.

Disliked: This hostel was in a bad location, unsafe area of town. It was extremly dirty! By far the dirtest hostel I have ever stayed in. Mold on the shower floor, pillows old and disgusting. The building was very old and rundown. You could easily find a much better hostel in Denver for the same or better price. The staff were older and hence not as fun. This detracted from the atmosphere.
