We the People of Hostel Fish believe that a hostel of backpackers, by backpackers, and for backpackers, shall be a fun, safe, spotless, high-end joint that is Classy as F...(ish!). We are focused on the traveler and the traveler's needs and believe something being affordable should still offer exemplary service and more than expected perks. We believe that shared rooms and neo-urbanism, when combined, create an epicenter for those "seekers of life's adventures" to meet each other and foster new friendships. We're stoked to host you. We're jazzed to have you as our guest. We're here for you and always want to hear your thoughts or suggestions on how we can improve your experience. We're located in the historic Airedale Building in the HEART of downtown Denver. Walking distance to major Denver attractions, Hostel Fish is steps from Coors Field, minutes from the trendy RiNo district, and surrounded by amazing night life.

Definitely super nice for a hostile. The bar is really fun, Rea was there a bartender and she was great! I’ll give you a drink ticket when you check in and if you leave a review you get a free drink! Definitely coming back next time I’m in Denver.

While I only stayed in Hostel Fish for 1 night, I would loved to have stayed longer! The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The place in general has a very chilled vibe. Rooms are clean and shower/toilet facilities are great! Only a short walk to downtown Denver. I would definitely recommend staying!

Do not stay here. They have horrendous customer service who pretend to be helpless. Fraudulent charges allowed and then they try and continue to force you to cancel to collect a few when they are notified of the fraud.

I was in the moto room. It was a comfortable stay. Check in was fast and efficient and the front desk person was friendly and wears multiple hats including working the bar. I would stay there again. A great place to meet people and views from the balcony and a free drink upon arrival.

I genuinely had the most comfortable, beautiful stay here at the Hostel. Everyone always had a smile & talked to one another with kindness & respect! 11/10 would recommend staying here as you’re passing through Denver. The bathrooms & shower places were the right amount of privacy. The bar was a timeless experience & all the staff was wonderful. Not to mention their beds are very comfortable! Got great sleep during my stay in Denver. It’s also a great location to be downtown & experience other night life.

The main reason I stayed here was the ability to get to union ststion where I could catch the snowstang bus service to copper/a basin for a weekend ski daytrip. The hostel is about a 3/4 mile walk from the train station. The area surrounding the hostel is lined with bars. The hostel itself is unique in that a fully operational bar is located on the premises. The interior decorator for the hostel has turned it into a whimsical nature. I stayed in a large room with 10 bunk beds and there was enuf room to keep my ski gear the attendant said that there have been many other snow sports visitors here. The beds had a real soft mattress and the room was well heated that I could just wear a tshirt. About the only issue I ran into was carting my equipment up a large flight of stairs from street level there was an elevator on the premises but it’s not readily apparent. By the way if you use google maps I was able to take a weekday ski trip to eldora from here

At 41, I’m probably not the average guest. But I was looking for a cheap place to overnight within walking distance of Union Station. Hostel Fish was SUPER CLEAN. Bed was comfy. Service was accommodating. Great location. The neighborhood was a little loud. But I still slept great.
