Have been to Salida many times and have stayed at the Simple 3x now. And we will again, and again. First, you can't beat the price and the location. Park here and walk to almost anywhere in town. The owners are super friendly and helpful. The place is clean and feels very safe. Don't be put off by the 'Hostel' part. They do have private rooms available if you want.
I have stayed in 5-star hotels and mom-pop motels. In fact, just returned from a stay at a Waldorf property in Key West. But we love the Simple lodge experience.
When in Salida, be sure to try Amica's and the new (ownership) River's Edge. And all the other great bars and restaurants in town.
