A couple updates about the hostel from what is listed on this site. 1) the Glenwood Springs Hostel is not affiliated with HI 2) there is no off street parking available, but the on street options are safe and sufficient. This hostel, while admittedly in need of some updating and refreshing, has an atmosphere that draws people back time and again. There are two main common areas, one in each house, and two kitchens as well. While the main house is locked during the day, the back house is open where guests are encouraged to relax, cook, and interact. The surrounding mountains are filled with hiking and biking trails, rivers for rafting, hot springs for soaking, rocks for climbing, all the snow sports and pretty much any kind of fun you can imagine....and the hostel is walking distance from most of it! Overall, this place takes my breath away, in all the good ways. I fell in love with the Rockies and Glenwood in particular during a spontaneous stay at the Glenwood Springs Hostel. Now it's a regular part of my yearly travels.
