A Bit About Us: In September 2018, the ColoRADo Adventure Hostel started welcoming adventurers, travelers, students, and anyone that is eager to explore all the beauty Colorado Springs has to offer. We're located close to downtown and to countless hiking trails. We have a variety of private and shared rooms, a common kitchen, dining area, lounge, 420-friendly smoking patio and backyard. Our days and nights are filled with people sharing stories, laughing, cooking food together, planning trips, singing around the bonfire, or cheering for each other for game night. We LOVE to get our guests to socialize and meet each other since we believe that travel should be fun and a shared experience.

Colorado Springs has a great blend of nature experiences, a budding arts & culture scene, and a variety of nightlife and music venues. We're also located about an hour away from Denver and an hour and a half to Boulder, making it easy to take trips to explore the rest of Colorado.

Come join our rad team! Reach out to Erin @ coloradhostel@gmail.com with applications and questions.
