Project Location

Denver, CO, United States

Opening a hostel has been a dream of ours for some time. To prepare, our "Head Dreamer" Mark worked at and stayed in over 100 hostels across Europe & North America. I got to work in some of the top hostels in the world, including several of the amazing Famous Hostels in Europe. He learned a lot about what to do right to make for an amazing hostel experience for all involved.

We will have a chill out lounge with movies & television, a kitchen for communal cooking experiences, comfortable memory foam mattresses & free laundry facilities. Guests will be invited to enjoy monthly dance parties, trips to the pub, beer & marijuana tastings, daily pick-up soccer games, adventures to visit a nearby hot springs, hike Red Rocks and more!

We are looking for $10,000 to help us in renting & renovating a brand new hostel space here in the heart of Denver. It is a small, raw space that needs a fair bit of work.

We need your financial help to cover the costs of materials & labor for putting up walls, building & installing bathrooms, showers, sinks, kitchen & laundry facilities.

We are investing $20,000 of our own money to secure the property, market the concept, buy bunk beds & furnish/deck out the chill area/movie lounge with a giant flat screen TV, SuperSac LoveSac Bean Bag & couches.

Also, we will be building version 1.0 of the Hostel Capsule, inspired by Japanese Business Hotels & EasyHotel, a 4 person space, with individually separated & self contained sleeping/relaxing area for each person complete with TV, headphones lighting & fan. No more being woken up by loud snoring or people packing/unpacking their stuff in the wee hours, random light turn ons and late night sauced up & loud arrivals when your roommates come home from the pub/club.

About Denver

Denver is an amazing city that is a major hub for train, bus & airport traffic. A year round destination, Denver is known as the Napa Valley of Beer & Cannabis as well as offering a cornucopia of culinary & artistic delights around the city. We offer a plentiful supply of small independent galleries & larger museums and a wide variety of locally owned & sourced eateries as well.

Be Active

For active types, there a great many options, including hiking the iconic Red Rocks, biking/walking the endless stream of trails around the city, the World's Biggest Water Park, a Wild Animal Sanctuary & our daily pick-up soccer games as well.

Music+Parties

Every night of the week there are amazing shows and concerts going on large and small, in every genre of music. Among the many options on offer, we feature all the major touring acts, the Colorado Symphony's Marijuana Themed concerts, amazing local & international EDM dj's, bands & solo artists, fun theme parties, bike rides & bar crawls galore.

Hostel Market in Denver is Wide Open

The hostel market in Denver is wide open & in desperate need of some new options for visiting backpackers. One large lower end hostel recently caved to real estate price increases & got turned into condos & retail. There are two other major lower end ones still going($31 USD/night), but these are basically halfway houses with mostly longer term tenants residing in these.

There is one very nice, higher end "Poshtel" that recently opened but bunk beds start at $51 USD/night, so hardly ideal for the budget traveler. (Our plan is to offer beds from $25-35).
