I stayed at the bivvi for 5 weeks as an affordable option to all the more expensive options in town. It ended up being the best spot in Breck for reasonable cost. It has the most comfortable beds, the nicest beer, the amazing atmosphere of a hostel while feeling luxurious. The breakfast is great every morning, the staff are some... More

When I told my boyfriend that we were staying at a hostel for our summer vacation, my enthusiasm was greeted with silence. And then a look of fear. I quickly showed him a few pics from the Bivvi's website and his mood changed completely. I really can't say enough wonderful things about this place. The decor is simply perfect -... More

The new Bivvi, as we knew it as the Allaire Timbres Inn, is nicer more modern and tasteful decorated. The concept is not bad and very good value for money for Breckenridge. We had a nice double room, a bit small for all our luggage, but OK. Breakfast was acc to the back of the room door from 7am and... More

We selected the Bivvi based upon the uniqueness of the "hotel" and the area in which it was located (just south of Breckenridge). A ski resort wasn't for us, based mostly on price (very expensive) and the fact that we were there to experience all that Breckenridge had to offer vs. just skiing. The positives to us was that it...

The Bivvi is small but full of character. Great staff, very helpful. Location is close (150 ft?) to a bus stop (buses are FREE) which makes getting around town easy (no worries about parking or drinking and driving!). Also, the Breckenridge Brewery/Restaurant is within walking distance. Our room was a single room so I can't comment on the shared room... More

Stunning log cabin just outside of Breckenridge. Great views from the deck and hot tub. Friendly vibe from the manager and most of the guests. I stayed in the super suite which is large room with smallish bath/toilet. Good value for money.

The Bivvi, or Bivouac, as a beautiful log cabin that was converted from a B&B to a hostel. There are a couple of private rooms, and some dorm rooms with as many as 6 beds. Accommodations are coed. My 6 bed room had 4 guys and 2 girls. One bathroom in the bedroom was shared by all without incident. Beds... More

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon to do some hiking and climbing in the area. It was lovely and we had the place pretty much to ourselves (since it was mid-June). The breakfasts were fantastic and usually pretty healthy, the owners and staff were all friendly and helpful. We even saw a moose wander through the backyard... More

Great hostel in Breckinridge, highly recommend. Ultra clean and a very beautiful building and decor, the owners have great taste and an eye for detail. It's a bit funny at first trying to figure out who actually works at the hostel because no one sits around manning a reception desk but it's nice as it is almost like you are... More

The Bivouac provides a great location and one of the most reasonable rates in Breckenridge. The breakfast is better than what you will find in a big name hotel. One of the prettiest places to stay. Can't go wrong.
