I would honestly recommend people avoid this place. The building itself and the rooms are perfectly fine with clean bedsheets and reasonably clean bathrooms and kitchens. However the biggest problem is the way it's run. The hostel is not only for travellers but for run-aways, and people on DSS looking for work. The issue being these guys are there for... More

This is not, I repeat NOT an International Youth Hostel. This is a Boarding House. If you are looking to meet other backpackers, good luck. Most folks staying here live here. I show up and they're closed. I called the number and Dick came and opened it for me. One good thing about this place? Owners are nice if not... More

I will include an edited version of an e-mail I just sent a good friend. I stayed at this hostel with mixed reviews 6 months previous and on my return trip I was very impressed. My room mate was very friendly as well. "The gentleman who runs the place has cleaned it up and even put privacy hospital curtains around... More

To tell the conclusion first, I like this guest house. It was not like American. I like the ivy covered wall, very old door, paticulary, I remember the rug was very old. I would like to go again.

It's actually a converted apartment complex in the downtown-East side of Denver, and has off-street parking, which is a damn good thing because in Denver if you park anywhere ON the street you WILL get at least a $150 ticket no matter where you park, what near, what not-near, no matter what time of day it is, no matter what...

Actually, I'd still feel bad for the homeless if they had to stay here should they manage to raise the $15p/d (which is quite feasible actually). I'd arrived from the airport in the evening and gone straight to this hostel which was an old red bricked former apartment building half covered in climbing ivy - very nice. The first guy... More

The rooms weren't the best. The furniture, carpet, beds(and mattresses) were all very worn...however it was fairly clean. The visitors were friendly(I made a lot of great friends here in three days) and the staff were always willing to help.

I stayed there for 1 week (I was on a summer work and travel program), before moving to my housing. The reception lady, Anne, was very nice. The owner - strange. Cleanliness and hygiene were bad. That is why I advise staying as little as possible in your room. Focus on visiting and site-seeing. I know students who stayed there... More
