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

My 16 year old brother and I stayed at the Wanderlust Hostel over 4th of July weekend. The hostel is adorably decorated and filled with wonderful people who have great stories to tell. Even though the hostel was at max occupancy, the mornings were always quiet and everyone was respectful when it was time to call it a night. I... More

I stayed two nights at the Wanderlust Hostal with my son. I travel a lot for work and stay at fairly pricey hotels. In Europe I have enjoyed stayed at hostals and was curious about whether such an experience existed in the U.S. We were delighted to find a friendly, homey environment to share with fascinating people.

I got a single room, and it felt more like an AirBnB, with a comfortable bed and a well decorated room and house. A very homey feeling hostel and folks were friendly. Would recommend it! Oh lame, tripadvisor requires a 200 character review, so that's why his last sentence is here :)
