I would like to give Wanderlust five stars, but nearly every night I was woken up in the middle of the night by other travelers getting in late... More

I can't say enough about my great stay at this hostel. The Wanderlust is very clean and comfortable. The price is competitive as hostels go but you get so much more. Free coffee, movies and a very friendly owner. I highly recommend this place.

This is perhaps the nicest hostel I've ever stayed in. It's a cute house, so it feels like staying with a friend. Every bit of it is clean and well-cared-for. The owner, Amy, is welcoming and friendly (she dug out a map and gave us great advice on a hike in Crested Butte). There are lots of nice, artsy touches,... More
