Loved my stay, great atmosphere, wonderful people! I was passing through town on my way to an interview and they provided me with an individual room for the price of a hostel room with no additional charge!

I found this hostel on google. What an awesome find. I stayed for the night with some people and this was one of the best experiences I have ever had accommodation-wise. This place is SUPER clean, extremely user friendly and the hosts Amy and Christen are awesome. I am headed back for a couple nights and am really looking forward... More

Our review is a bit different than some as we rented the hostel as a vacation home. The house is very clean and has everything you would need to make your self comfortable. The kitchen is a good size and easily met our needs to feed everyone. We loved the ability to ride bikes or walk around town. Amy is... More

I stopped in Gunnison for the night and found Wanderlust on Trip Advisor. I am very glad I tried a hostel for the first time. It felt nice to stay here rather than a hotel. The staff was great and the place is very clean. There was a spoiled cat there that loved her chinned rubbed. I'll be back again!

Lovely place, friendly owners, very clean. It's a small, small hostel (only 6 beds per female/male dorm + a double room as far as I can say), but everything is painted and decorated lovely with lots of charme and creativity. Amy and Ashley are wonderful hosts. Everyone going even slightly in the direction of Back Canyon, Crested Butte, etc. should... More

The host, Amy is wonderful. Lots of recommendations for hikes and a guide for other activities. Clean, comfortable and well managed. My pup enjoyed the backyard. Amy & Ashley shared the fruits of the garden. Just a couple of blocks from grocery, restaurants and the cutest section of downtown Gunnison. Highly recommend

I stayed at the Wanderlust Hostel for two nights in May when I was in Gunnison for a trail race. Most of the other guests were runners, and it was a fun group. The house is comfortable, and the owners/hosts were friendly and welcoming. Clean and quiet, and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

We are a group of four girls travelling the USA. The Wanderlust Hostel convinced us at first sight; the cosy living room, the comfortable beds, the lovely backyard and all the great and interesting people who stayed there. Ashley was always helpful and gave us great insider tips for the surrounding area. We definitly would come back!

The Wanderlust Hostel is an absolute gem. Amy obviously knows hostels as she's hit all the right notes with her place. It sociable, comfortable, and relaxing with all the amenities you could possibly want. Amy is also very knowledgable of the area and if you're lucky enough to be there when her parents are in town, you'll have an even... More
