Escape into Nature

RAD Hostel is where adventure awaits, friendships take root, and travelers from near and far find a home away from home. Stay with us, and your Colorado hostel experience will be one that you’ll remember forever.

Here in Colorado Springs, you can escape into nature during the day and explore the city’s diverse cultural events, breweries, and restaurant scene at night.

The True Spirit of Hostel Life

From lively game nights and storytelling around the campfire to planning outdoor excursions over weekend pancakes, creating community is at the heart of what we do.

We take pride in being open-minded and inclusive. All are welcome here.

Since our opening in 2018, guests from over 80 countries have stayed with us. Whether you’re sharing a meal in the communal kitchen or relaxing on the shaded patio, you’re are equally likely to hear Arabic, Spanish, or Italian as English – here at RAD, respect is our common language.

With our colorful murals, welcoming staff, camaraderie amongst guests, and natural beauty in all directions, there is nowhere else like RAD Hostel.

It’s adventurous; it’s one-of-a-kind; it’s RAD.
