Every now and then you come across a Hostel that feels like home and The Wanderlust Hostel is one of those! The girls that run the place are too awesome for words and it instantly felt like we had been friends for ages. Can't recommend this place enough.

Always a pleasure staying at The Wanderlust. Much better than a hotel. Been staying here when I travel for the past three years. Why would I stay anywhere else? Amy is the best. Alison, Cassidy and Sarah are pretty awesome too.

The Wanderlust hostel is a magic and very welcoming place! The staff is friendly and helpful, environmentally aware, the prices are reasonable, the place is cute and clean. The bunk beds are very confortable, with individual lamp and some curtains all around for privacy. Denver<>Gunnison buses run every day, and free local buses drive you to Crested Butte. It is great especially if you travel on your own, you can choose to have privacy or to chat with the other guests, using the community kitchen, for diverse conversations on various interesting topics. People there were extraordinarilly open-minded. I ended up car-pooling back to Denver with one of the friendly guests I met there! The Wanderlust Hostel definitely played a great part in making my stay in Colorado wonderful and unforgettable.
