Pancho has taken on the running as an owner/operator of the lovely Mineshaft Inn in Rico, Colorado. This charming authentic Western Victorian building has great views and great furnishing. It is clean and affordable. I enjoyed the open floor plan layout that encourages social interaction with the owner and other guests in the friendly manner of a hostel.
My only concern might be weather it is warm in winter. It was cool in summer which was nice for me being from Moab. I slept really well in the 23 dollar bunkroom!
