I stayed at DIYH for about 10 days in August 2015. It was quite interesting to say the least. When I first arrived there was no room for guests but the manager told me I could sleep on the floor of the girl's dorm if I had nowhere else to stay. My options were limited and it did sound like...

Filth. Filth everywhere. The "boys dorm" was beyond disgusting - a tiny, dark L-shaped room with at least 7-or-8 bodies squeezed in there. It was pitch black when I entered, except for the light coming from an old TV. It illuminated the naked stomach of a fat man sitting at a table. He was wearing only underpants. To his credit...

(Heavy breathing sigh). Well, I hate giving "negative" or bad reviews, esp. if the owner is a nice, decent guy. Let me just give you the facts as I see them and you decide. I called a day ahead to make reservations, but no answer. I call again the next day, and Dick (who I later found out to be... More

The worst hostel ever. Don't stay here if you are not homeless person and like drug...Mane homeless people live there not traveler at all. I chose this hostel because of the cheap price. But when I got in the female dorm, it looked like a prison. The whole room particular the bathroom smells so bad and nasty, most of other... More

I've got great memories of these place. I went there in August 2014 on my own and I must admit that the place is not very modern but is cheap and it's near to the centre of Denver. You can reach it in few minutes on foot. But I have to say that they helped me a lot especially Gary... More

I´ve stayed in more than 100 hostels all over the world. This has been the worst experience so far. Very dirty hostel located in a dodgy neighborhood. The second night I arrived at midnight. When i walked in to my room i realized there was somebody else sleeping on my bed. I didnt´even bother waking up the drunk fellow and... More

Stayed for a few nights visiting Denver but in hindsight should have stayed elsewhere. The dorms are large but poorly maintained, the staff didn't seem to care about much or concerns and so after a few nights I was thankful I was moving on, met some interesting people though, others that were passing through, but that was the only highlight....

Absolutely a hostel run by travelers for travelers. 10 bed dorm rooms with kitchen & bathroom in each dorm. Very accommodating friendly management., located just blocks from downtown. It also has a library and a separate movie room with comfy seating, and tons of movies.

I would honestly recommend people avoid this place. The building itself and the rooms are perfectly fine with clean bedsheets and reasonably clean bathrooms and kitchens. However the biggest problem is the way it's run. The hostel is not only for travellers but for run-aways, and people on DSS looking for work. The issue being these guys are there for... More
