Never have stayed in a hostel before, so it was so fun to try something new-and so pleased we did. Know this is an old motel and run down in a funky area. BUT… a private room with own bath for two for $52 is such a bargain. The linens are super clean as is the bathroom.

The real treat is the common areas. We watched movies two evenings and got to eat with fabulous folks every morning. The kitchen has every/anything you could possibly need to make a lovely breakfast - all the supplies are there! Delicious hot coffee is always available. And, the kitchen is clean and bright.

Thank you Leah and Elaine - you are both so charming and helpful! We wish you all our best for the wonderful futures we know you will live! Karen and Tammie (California grandmas 🙂 P.S. If you run cold, ask for extra blanket/s when you check in. As well, ask for a portable heater then, too. Our room was toasty after we did!

It's an awesome place

It's an awesome place. I really liked the people, the staffs are nice. The bedrooms are clean and the hostel is close to stores and a bus stop. It was my first experience in Colorado Springs and I loved it.

Clean, chill, value. I am so pleasantly surprised by the quality of my stay here. The staff were kind and friendly. I received a courtesy call the day of my stay and a tour of the facilities when I arrived. I stayed in the dorms for only ~$40 a night. I was happy to see that the room was clean and the bathroom was immaculate. I was given some fresh linens for my bunk and slept comfortably. The next morning I enjoyed some complimentary coffee and pancakes. I brought my own pillow, but my bunk had two ready for me. I also brought a towel, which I advise you do as well (but they do sell them if you don't).

I was looking for an inexpensive place to shower and sleep the evening after climbing Pike's Peak and this place was exactly what I needed. It was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. At check-in, after I mentioned that I'd been hiking that day, Lisa switched around which dorm room I was staying in so I could have a bottom bunk and didn't have to try to climb a ladder (I'm not sure I would have made it). The breakfast area in the morning was great! There were plenty of ingredients to make a hot breakfast or cereal and toast if you wanted something quick. I will absolutely stay here again if my plans take me back to the Colorado Springs area!

The best hostel you could go to! The staff are amazing. They make you feel right at home. Everyone is so friendly and they even have events during the week! I would definitely recommend this place to everyone. The location is super close to restaurants, grocery stores, and all the out door activities. They have free bike rentals and even kayaks and paddle boards you can rent too. The rooms are clean and accommodating with the amenities that you need. If you need a place to stay in the Springs make sure to check this place out, it won’t disappoint!

A welcoming community

I came here thinking it was going to be a normal Hotel but quickly realized that was not the case when checking in. I was greeted by two fellas Mike and Cole both with good energy and friendly smiles(jk they had masks lol). The environment of this Hostel was amazing, everyone was super friendly Mike, Cole, Kristin. Even the guests staying were very friendly. It felt like such a tight community and everyone there had a common goal which was to relax, and have a great time. It was a great birthday getaway for my girl and her friends. It is well kept and that staff is always available to help!


Very memorable experience! I stayed mid July. I think I met and connected with over 10 people, fun the whole time. Great place to stay if you want to meet people. I enjoyed my visit the first night so much that I extended my stay one more night. I hope to come back at some point in the future. THANK YOU!
