I got the feeling that this place is for people that have no where else to go. Many of the long-term tenants are drug addicts or have mental illness. This would be tolerable because I visited Denver to see the sights - not hang around the hostel, but there is a long-term tenant in the woman's dorm that continually talks about how she dislikes the hostel, and "doesn't know what she has done to deserve this life." It was impossible to go home in the evening and expect any quiet from her. The hostel manager could not crack a smile if his life depended on it - which adds to the dreary feeling of the place.
As far as the hostel itself - it is clean with a nice shower. There is free Internet, and it's walking distance to downtown and many attractions. The only reason that I was able to stay is because I lucked out and got a great roommate I could laugh things off with. I’d recommend this place for a very short-term stay, or a trip jam-packed with activities so you will not have to spend much time in the hostel.
