I was in Denver for work and decided to stay behind an extra day to see a little bit of what Denver had to offer. I read so many awesome reviews about Ember Hostel, it seemed like a no-brainer to book. Well, lemme tell ya...it was awesome! I actually felt (and still do feel) stupid for not extending my trip. I can be a bit introverted and in true hostel nature, I met some really dope people within an hour of checking in. We made dinner plans and ended up getting dinner together and bar hopping later that evening off Larimer and ended the night with drunken chatter until 5 am in the hot tub. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm and the bed was insanely comfy. I loved that my bunk had wall plugs and a lamp inside. Getting to that top bunk was a little tricky bc there's no handle up there, but I persevered. (Trying to get up there after an evening of drinking is an extreme sport lol) In the area, there's lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance and even more a short uber ride away.The common areas had super cute decor and I loved that there was coffee in the lobby area. I CANNOT WAIT to return!

This hostel was very comfortable and worth the price. I stayed there for 2 days and I enjoyed my time there. I met a lot of travelers there who were like me just looking for a place to stay while exploring the wonderful city of Denver. The showers are cleaned daily and the beds were pretty comfortable and I am 6 feet tall.

I enjoyed my stay here! The living room and outside area are awesome. Really loved the free espresso! It was very hot in the kitchen downstairs, I'm not sure if they have A/C down there but the kitchen is quite small with no freezer, something to keep in mind if you're considering a stay. Overall though a great experience and excellent location near Trader Joe's. The staff was also extremely friendly and welcoming, especially Royale, thank you!

My friend & I had a great time at Ember Hostel. From the moment we checked in, we found more & more things to love about this place. From the adorable decor to the free coffee & snacks in the morning, Ember Hostel never failed to deliver a great experience. We both felt taken care of & comfortable during our stay here. The common areas are set up so that guests can get to know one another inside or out. Outdoors, there is a fire pit and comfortable furniture. Inside, there is a large living room area as well as little areas you can go if you want some solitude. The place was clean, with several bathrooms and showers for guests. I have stayed in several hostels in my life, but I have never experienced one like this. The staff goes above & beyond to help guests enjoy their stay.. I can't say enough about this place. The only down side was that we were put on the 3rd floor & there were several stairs & no elevator. This became a hassle when we forgot things and had to climb several sets of stairs many times a day. But other than that, it was a fun, peaceful place to stay. I will definitely stay here in the future! Thank you staff members Adrian, Royale and Sydnee! You helped to make our stay even better!

From the moment I walked in and say the foyer with an ancient bust and fancy furniture, I knew I was in for a different experience. This was my first ever time at a hostel, and I was told by many not to expect such a nice place anywhere else as far as hostels go. So with this being my first hostel experience, I am glad to say that I loved it. The thing that really stood out to me was the friendliness and warmth I felt from the staff who worked there. I spent a Thursday and Saturday night there as I explored Colorado. I will be sure to go back any time I am in town. By the end of the day Saturday, I felt like I was leaving a newfound home. Obviously what makes it so cool outside of the amazing staff is the amenities. A hot tub? Fire pit? Parlor? These things really made the place stand out and make you feel like you're getting way beyond a good bang for your buck. Everything was newly updated, and that was easy to tell with how nice the bathrooms and showers were. Even the sleeping arrangements were nice. They have velvet curtains to close, providing some privacy and helping you sleep. Within your bunk, there was a light as well as a charging station with regular outlets as well as USB ports. On my last day even though I had already checked out, I came back to drop a friend I had just made in the hot tube the night before off. Since I was flying out that night, I asked if I could still shower even though I had technically checked out. They were kind enough to lend a towel and let me, a small act of kindness that meant a lot for me. Thank you Ember for giving me such a great first time hostel experience.
