This striking modernist ski lodge sits just outside Breckenridge town limits, about a 15 minute easy walk to Main St. The Bivvi is technically a hostel, not a hotel, and that distinction bears keeping in mind. Although the place does offer some private rooms (all are sold at "per person" rates) the lion's share of the accommodations are in 4-or-6-person... More

The Bivvi was awesome. Breakfast was delicious, the hot tub was relaxing, and the fellow guests were friendly. We rented the private Queen room because of odd sleeping schedules, but enjoyed the company of other guests and the friendliness of the staff. Parking is free. Room came with private bathroom and balcony, ceiling fan, and tv. Would recommend the Bivvi... More

Not much needs to be said; Great hostel in a great location with great staff and an unbeatable atmosphere. Worthy, Bond, Erica and Balazs went out of their way to ensure that my friends and I had an unbelievable stay. I highly recommend the Bivvi and would happily stay there agan

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.
