I was apprehensive about staying at a hostel. This place is special. Centrally located. Friendly guests from all over. Comfortable accommodations. The men's shower room was rather busy, but it was a busy beautiful summer weekend. The host is gracious, but over worked and needs more help. Her and late husband created this place. She deserves a break. Maybe there... More

We traveled to Leadville with 18 12 year olds and each had an adult with 3 leaders. Great location for small groups to 40+. Breakfast and dinners were fantastic and the staff was very helpful. Sleeping rooms for 2 up to 6 in bunk beds. Very comfortable accommodations.

Great environment. Very roomy, both in the public areas and the bunk rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. It was quiet and everyone seemed to be following the rules listed around the house. It was within walking distance of the main street so restaurants and shops were accessible. I would stay here again.

Happened upon this funky hostel by accident and we were welcomed with open arms and a choice of accommodation. Couples room downstairs was adequate with a shared bathroom just down the hall or else a large room upstairs with it own bathroom. As the price is low we chose the more luxurious accommodation in the large room. Shared kitchen use... More

Lovely place to stay! My girlfriend and I stayed here in early to mid may. We called Leadville Hostile to let them know we were running late and wouldn't get in till 10:30. Cathy said it was no issue and she would stay up till we got in. When we got there we asked to get access to the Wi-Fi... More

Fantastic support for our very large group of Scouts. I was concerned that the other guests might be put out and Kathy overwhelmed, but my concern was unfounded. We used up three of their large group rooms, and the boys had a great time. The hot breakfast before skiing at Cooper was perfect--and too much food! Thank you Kathy and... More

First a disclaimer. We were there with a large group (18) that took over the whole place, so it was much more of a hotel experience for us than a hostel experience. The rooms are spacious, there is a wonderful large living room, a huge and very well equipped kitchen, and the dining room held 18 people at one large... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Was very happy with my stay. Kathy was very kind and hospitably. She was also very available and was comfortable asking her questions. Space was super clean. Loved the wood stove area in the basement with the bunkrooms. Other tenants were very friendly. Great space to meet people and fellow travelers.

I returned to the Leadville hostel for some altitude training this summer. It's a bargain for solo travelers. It's super clean, the beds are comfortable, the showers hot, the kitchen well equipped, the wifi fast -- all good reasons to stay there, but there's an even more important one: the hostel truly feels like a home away from home, with...
