We have stayed in the Leadville Hostel for our team camp twice. The owners seemed excited and welcoming to us when they heard that we would completely fill their rooms, however, upon our arrival they treated my group of young adults like 10 year olds. They would make mean rude comments about how the kids were doing everything wrong. They were first told that only 13 kids were allowed to eat at one time, but if they wanted to, they could take a plate outside and eat at the picnic tables. When more then 13 kids came they were treated rudely by the cook and female owner, even though they offered to eat outside. The tension created made everyone at the hostel feel uncomfortable. The rooms were fine. The Woman owner was not friendly at all and the man had a strange sense of humor that made you feel really uncomfortable. They don't treat young people very well. Beware if you have kids attending the hostel with you as they will probably be treated similarly.
If we ever come back to Leadville, we will NOT be staying at this hostel!
