I have often stayed at this place when doing an overnight in Denver. The place is old and it has a long term guest policy. The long term guests are mixed bag. You can meet some cool travelers from other parts of the country, or transient, state welfare people who are on some half-way house transition. The hostel is right near downtown and some cool bars, which is a good thing. There is an eclectic Mercury Cafe nearby that serves decent food and coffee. Some of the workers there are a little rude because it is one of the main hipster places in the city. The bald guy manager with glasses is not friendly and somewhat rude.
The problem with the place is the kitchen. The management are too cheap to get a stove or an oven. There is only a microwave and a hot plate. The hot plate doesn't even work that well. A hostel can do better than that.
The private rooms are decent and they have room, but there are no private bathrooms. They have sinks, a thin bar of soap and a towel. You will have to share the bathrooms with all of the other guests, so bring flip flops for the showers.
