1st time stayed at a bunk bed style hotel. Not use to lack of privacy. Not for me. Staff was nice.

Great place to stay
Really great place to stay. I was amazed at how private and quiet the sleeping pods were. This was so much better than a hotel!

This worked out really well for my situation!
This place worked very well with my plans to visit with some friends in Vail, CO. The staff was friendly and the place was VERY clean. The bunks provide enough privacy for a restful night. The town is very quaint and friendly as well.

8/10 Very good

Hostel staff are very friendly and helpful, flexible w special requests as long as no impact to other guests or their operations. Very clean in all areas from kitchen to common area to bathroom and dorm area. Phenomenal location, walkable within downtown minturn. Dorm beds are the best I’ve seen for a hostel (and I’ve stayed in many in US, Europe, Asia, Central America etc) as they are exceptionally private and separate w a small curtain allowing access that would help w noise, lights, etc. Only real complaint (beyond price - the most expensive dorm bed I’ve ever booked...but par for the course during high season in the area I suppose) is combo minimal secure storage (w your own lock, a lockable large drawer under the bed) and offsite parking in a non-secure lot short drive from an I70. Supposedly, there has never been a breakin, but as I’ve learned multiple times through my life, that is always true until its not (w first hand experience to back it up) and the pandemic has created hardship for some. This lack of secure indoor storage would also make it tough to dry out clothing/gear after outdoor activities on storm days. Again though, if you travel light or are unconcerned about drying out gear or theft and are flexible timing wise w working within the kitchen (nice but somewhat small if Bunkhouse is fully occupied I would think), then this place is a great option! Finally, while I dislike the “no outside alcohol” policy, I love that they recycle AND COMPOST!
