I stayed at the fish hostel for one night. Check in was easy and convenient though The hostel has a curfew of midnight when they lock the doors. The beds were extremely comfortable and clean facility. This is my top hostel choice while traveling in Denver.at At times the rates can be pricey depending on what type of room is being booked.
This hostel is easy to find and it's so close to everything. The staff was really nice and the place felt really clean. Finding a clean hostel during a pandemic was a great comfort. Made a couple of good acquaintances here. I stayed here one night and after having a terrible experience with a hotel in Boulder, I didn't hesitate to book Hostel Fish again since I was sure it was clean, safe, and sanitary. They have a bar, a kitchen, they make a pot of coffee for you in the morning, and give you a free drink for booking with them. Good experience overall.
Sweet place man. Wedged perfectly in downtown Denver. In my opinion it’s a must stay and it’s a steal for the price. Laid back atmosphere. Cool lounge areas available by the bar with darts/ping pong upon request. Other lounge options as well away from bar away for a quieter time. Will always stay here when I come to Denver. It’s a beautifully hidden gem. Staff members are super courteous and polite. Arrived early and was available to coat check my suitcase so I didn’t have to lug it around all day until check in. Lockers available for anyone and can use or rent locks upon request. Music selection is available via piano, records, or speaker system. 10/10 and highly recommend!
I really wanted to love this place with its friendly and fun staff, quiet and considerate roommates, super-clean and modern bathrooms, and inviting atmosphere. But stuff got in the way. It's in a lively neighborhood with lots to do, but there's also a lot of street noise from the parking lot next door and the live bands playing a block away. This kept up until closing time around 2AM. I brought eyeshades and earplugs but could hardly sleep until the outside partiers went home. The Fish itself quiets its own bar at a reasonable hour and I know they can't control the outside world. But hey, I just couldn't sleep. A couple of suggestions: is there a quiet place to read or go online? If there is, nobody told me. There should be! I saw maybe a half-dozen others in the noisy lounge who may have been happier in a quieter room. Also, a basket or shelf would be great especially next to the upper bunks. There are outlets to charge your phone, but no place to put it...or your glasses, or anything else. There are good-sized lockers, but when it's pitch-dark because your roommates are asleep, it's hard to sort things out. There's no individual light at your bed. And there was always someone sleeping in my room, from 3PM check-in until long after I checked out. For some hostel-lovers, other reviews of the Hostel Fish will be more helpful. There is a lot to like here. But I'm sorry to say, it wasn't right for me.…
Staff is very friendly and helpful. There is bar included with $1 coke cans which is great price in Downtown Denver in my opinion. Bar also serves alcoholic beverages. Location is amazing. The only trouble I had was finding the way there without data and wifi connection from train station that I had to use on my way from airport. But it’s not that far away and bus station is very close. Security level was good. And I got brewed my morning coffee from night guard. My first hostel experience in my life was great!
