I've stayed at a lot of hostels around the world and can say for sure this is a really cool one. The location is convenient and less than two miles from Cowgirl BBQ, a great music venue, and quite close to Counter Culture, a great restaurant and café with amazing breakfast burritos.
The owner is super nice and committed to running a good hostel, and the staff are all very nice and helpful. The rooms and common spaces are very clean. A huge perk I have never experienced at a hostel before is the free food. Sunday is bonus day when that morning, the owner brings in an astounding assortment of donated foods from Whole Foods. It's amazing! I fed myself and took food to go as well for my various road trips to ski and check out the local monuments and public lands. I had delicious healthy food to take with me the whole time.
Don't bring hotel standards because it's a hostel. So the beds aren't plush, the walls aren't crazy thick, and there are shared bathrooms unless you pay for your own. But who cares? It's a clean, safe, friendly location with lots of amenities including free food and nice helpful staff. Two thumbs up!!
