Recently stayed at the Wanderlust while working on a geology research project in the valley. The hostel is awesome. During the day we spent our time outside and would return in the evening to cook and relax. Always enjoyed coming back to a comfortable environment that was fun and relaxing. Amy and Christen were great and did not mind the... More

This hostel is the place to stay if you're in Gunnison! The staff are so friendly and helpful. The hostel is cute, clean and close to town. It was the first hostel we stayed at in America and reminded me of why I love hostels so much. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed 2 nights in the smaller private room ($45/night + $5/night for our dog). The room was very small, but very clean & the bed was comfy. The only negative about it was that it is located off the kitchen & 1 couple rose REALLY early (around 5:30am) & woke us with "kitchen noises" as they were preparing breakfast.... More

It offered just what I needed and at a very nice price. In the evening it was fun and interesting to hear of the adventures experienced by the guests. Nice... More

Amy, Carey, and everyone at Wanderlust was so friendly and really made the stay at this hostel so worthwhile! Gunnison is an awesome place in itself, but having somewhere like The Wanderlust to stay really rounds out the experience. There is a sizable kitchen, clean sheets, a lush garden, free bikes to use, and proximity to nearly everything in Gunnison.... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Wanderlust. The house is clean, tidy and very comfortable. The location is close to everything. It was great conversing and sharing information and stories with other travelers. The owner and staff were very kind, helpful and informative. I look forward to visiting the area again and staying here! Thank You Amy and staff!... More

Amy does an incredible job making you feel at home. Best hostel experience I have ever had! Again - the house is clean, the kitchen is incredibly well-equipped and the maps, books and input from staff make this experience top-notch.

Great place to stay. Organized, Clean, friendly place to stay and a short walk to the downtown area. It felt like I was staying at home. Amy and Jennifer are a wealth of information about the area and are willing to share it with you.

Casual, easy , fun, comfy, very much like bed and breakfast except you make your own breakfast. actually, it was more like staying at my aunt's house... very homey! plenty of parking. Christen was beyond helpful host!... More
