My best friend and I stayed at Wanderlust on our trip to CO to ski Crested Butte, and it was the best decision we made for the whole trip! Everyone there is so friendly and there is an amazing sense of community throughout the hostel. Christen and Chris are both super helpful when it comes to lift tickets, where to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Wanderlust while skiing at Crested Butte. We couldn't have been happier. It was cheap, clean, and fun! Great location, walking distance to the (3) bars, good coffee shops, and a block from the bus stop to crested butte. Thanks again!!!!

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!
