Located in Capitol Hill, this hostel is within a 10-minute walk of Denver Public Library, Denver Art Museum, and Colorado State Capitol Building. Molly Brown House Museum and United States Mint are also within 15 minutes.
Pros: The staff were very nice and helpful.Cons: The hostel facilities are old and dirty. The window had to be open all night in order to get decent ventilation, but it was extremely loud outside... I barely slept.
Great value Pros: The staff were super friendly and attentive- the first day there was a problem with our bedding, and they changed the sheets right away. Overall, the place was ok, reasonably clean for a hostel (they could stand to clean the common shower area more often, however- hair was clogging the drain). Cons: It would be nice to get a few more appliances in the kitchen area so guests could actually use it. The rooms have no A/C and tiny fans that don't do much, which can be a problem during the summer. The beds are hard as a ROCK..I'm 26 and my back was killing me by the time I left. Also, there is a club next door that plays loud club music all hours of the day. Not the hostel's fault, but if you're looking for a good night sleep, I'd suggest requesting a room that doesn't face 11th ave.
Youth hostel bare bones Pros: Nice staff, simple nice room, option for private bathroom, great location. Loved fan and open window instead of air conditioning.Cons: Despite it looking very tidy and clean, not as relaxing as staying at a nice hotel. But for the price, totally awesome and good enough for me. I would recommend it.
Cancelled TripPros: I actually cancelled trip before heading to Denver do didn't stay at 11th Avenue Hotel
Pros: Super friendly staff, great location. Quirky rooms. Cons: We couldn't get the hot water to work!
Pros: Great location, affordable. Ideal for people who want to be downtown and don't need luxury.Cons: Definitely more of a hostel than a hotel, although I stayed in a private room. You have to pay $3 for a worn out towel. Clean the bathtub before you use it and bring flip flops if you plan to take a shower (all showers are shared). My mattress was pretty uncomfortable but not the worst. The locks on the door are kinda sketchy. The older white gentleman checking people in blatantly ignored an Asian American woman in order to serve two ditzy white girls first. He also overcharged me but then when I went back and showed a different staff member my voucher I got a refund for the overcharged amount.
Pros: Good location. Comfy bedsCons: Lots of homeless people living at that place, probably by the next bed to you. While it's good from humanitarian point, I doubt travellers will feel safe around them.
THIS PLACE BLOWS DOGS FOR QUARTERSPros: LITERALLY, NOTHING. Cons: ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING. SO BAD I SLEPT ELSEWHERE. NOT KIDDING.
Clean, efficient, friendly, value, accomodating of request for shower,.Personal assistance using the get-around for their guest PC and re-setting my TV channels. Casper at the desk Walter the maintenance man helped me with those.
This was my third stay here. I came for the Phish shows and plan to patronize the 11th Ave. Hotel every labor day weekend when Phish comes.
Pros: Location and price. Cons: No A/C, only fans and open windows. Also, the bathrooms were not cleaned and the floors in there were always dirty - so bring flip flops. One more thing - never any hot water. The "beds" are just single mattresses. I'd never go back.
thieves Cons: we walked in for a room. quite a scary lobby but I saw it was cheap and we would only be resting until morning. unfortunately my partner lost her ID so we couldn't stay. we never entered the room and only had the key for less than 5 minutes. they were rude and wouldn't return my money.
it's not so bad!Pros: It was quiet and nobody bothered me. I had a single room with a toilet-- not the tidiest place, but it wasn't scary either. If you're 20-something, not picky, and traveling cheap, I highly recommend.
Definitely not a luxury hotel, but hey, you get what you pay for. I feel like I got full value out of my 60+ dollars/night here. I'm glad I didn't blow $250 down near the convention center. I just needed a safe, quiet place to crash for 5 nights, and I got that. Staff were nice.
