Get ready to kick back and enjoy the swankiest retro hostel experience of a lifetime in our 9,000 sq ft historic mansion with boutique amenities and chill people! Ember is curated to warm your toes and feed your soul.
Designed with boutique comfort: train car style bunks with pillow tops mattresses, plush king size pillows, in-bed outlets/lights/storage and privacy curtains, as well as individual full tile showers.
All that and a revered social atmosphere! Kick back by the fire pit on our friendly patio, join friends in the gigantic 12 person hot tub, or grab some espresso and read a book by the original fireplace. We also offer secluded co-working space for the digital nomads!
Our staff is also made up of travelers. They are here to give their best local suggestions and lead our weekly events.
Our hostel is located in Cap Hill just a short walk from the state capitol, downtown bars and an awesome music scene. Once the home of Denver’s elite, the neighborhood has urban character, eclectic architecture (historic mansions, such as ours) and is well known as a haven for young artists, musicians, and bohemians (Jack Kerouac loved it here). Near us is Colfax Avenue, which is the concert and live music hub of Denver! The Fillmore Auditorium, The Ogden Theater, as well as numerous late-night bars, coffee shops, thrift stores and restaurants are just blocks away. The Denver Art Museum, Santa Fe Arts District, and South Broadway bar scene are also walking distance from the hostel.
