Super clean bed and the common restrooms. The owner personally supervises and even does the cleaning and the place shows it in so many ways. The common room is tastefully decorated and lit, has lots of good reading material, the kitchen has what you need well organized and everything shows attention to detail. Even the sanitizing spray in the restrooms... More

I have stayed at many hostels in my traveling life, and in many different continents. This was one of the cleanest hostels out there. Candace makes sure that the hostel is continually cleaned and in good shape. There are four main room with bunk beds, which means that the hostel holds around 32 people. Still, groups usually come in the... More

This place is amazing! My sister & I stopped here for the last of 4 nights on a southwestern Colorado road trip. As if you needed another positive review to get you to come here, here it is. The place is bright, friendly, CLEAN & welcoming. Candice wasn't here when we arrived, but Jane did a great job checking us... More

This hostel is in a really nice spot, close to downtown Durango, and with lots of nice amenities. There's an elevated porch in the back built into the hillside that's a great place to sit and eat or talk. Well-stocked kitchen, walk up computers, a nice living room with couch. Everything is very clean and well-organized. I will definitely stay... More

Our hostess Candice could not have been nicer. She helped out out with a late arrival in a big storm. I have not stayed at a place like this hostel before, but compared to our friends that rented condos and hotel rooms in the area, the price and convenience for this place could not be beaten. This is a hostel,... More

Recently stayed in the hostel. First ever time to stay in a hostel so I was kinda hesitant, but I'm certainly glad I choose it. The lady who runs the place is super nice and always made sure I was having a good stay. Within the first hour it felt like a second home for me. I will stay again.

Fantastic hostel. Everything was extremely clean. The overall atmosphere made it feel like a home. Comfortable bunk beds, great lounge area, fully equipped kitchen. Every detail was accounted for, there was even a supply of foam ear plugs available for dealing with noisy sleepers. Three available computers and wifi throughout. Located a few minutes from the downtown area, maybe not... More

This was the first hostel I've ever stayed in and I was impressed. The place was meticulously clean and had a great set of amenities. If you need a cheap place to stay in Durango this is it. Whether you need to whip up some food in the kitchen, hang out in the common room upstairs or walk to downtown/Fort... More

This hostel sits up a hill with good parking and access. The rooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean!!!! Women Only dorm had 6 beds, bunkbed style, locker and lock included, and big enough to move around in. Bathrooms were co-ed, but each toilet and shower were independent and lockable with plenty of hanging/dressing room. Common room and kitchen with walkout... More

I have stayed here 3 times. I have never been disappointed with the quality of the experience. Candace keeps the place spic-and-span and is a joy to deal with. I liked it so much I rented out the whole hostel for my motorcycle riding group trip to Durango for the second year this July. The facilities allow a group to... More
