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.

I stayed one night at the Wanderlust Hostel and had a pleasant stay. The house is very clean and comfortable. Amy is a wonderful host; very helpful, informative, and kind. I hope I make it back to Gunnison and if I do, I will surely stay at this hostel. A great place to stay!

probably the most comfortable bed that is not my own that I have ever slept on. and it was in the bunk room! 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

We stayed at the Wanderlust for one night and had a great time. Owners are so friendly and helpful if you need information about the area. Clean and eclectic with games, movies, BBQ & patio area. My first time in a hostel and I will definitely be back. Bonus - WiFi is smokin' fast.

Being at the Wanderlust was like being a guest in a friend's awesome house. Everything is furnished - beautiful guitar, great kitchen, wonderfully comfy living room, bicycles, nice backyard to hang out, picnic & we did tai chi. Our hosts were super friendly and accomodating. Definitely will be back - highly reccomended.

The Wanderlust was perfect for a good night's sleep before and after hiking Black Canyon. It's right near downtown Gunnison and was even better than expected. We stayed in one of the bunk rooms and had it all to ourselves because it was an off weekend, and the beds were comfortable and cozy, unlike some other hostels I've stayed in.... More

I had a nice, big room, and the full use of the facilities was a pleasant surprise. I will certainly return to this nice place, as the owners are friendly and make it a comfortable home away from home.

I'm so glad I chose to stay at the wanderlust. I was able to enjoy the comforts of a home and the friendliest guests and staff. The house cats are nice and the baby yard was great for a bbq and bonfire.
