Get ready to kick back and enjoy the swankiest retro hostel experience of a lifetime in our 9,000 sq foot mansion! Whether you're in the mood to party or sit by the fireplace with an espresso and good book, we are the hostel for you! At Ember we believe hosteling is a way of life and that staying in one doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice luxury or style. That's why ours has been carefully designed to bring you all the comforts of a boutique as well as the fun atmosphere of a social hostel. Our five star bunks include pillow-top mattresses, plush king size pillows, and in-bed outlets/lights/storage/privacy curtains. Once you’re ready to meet other travelers, grab a beer and head to our gigantic 12 person jacuzzi and fire pit for a little pre-game action.
Our hostel is located in Cap Hill just a short walk from the state capitol, downtown bars and an awesome music scene. Capitol Hill was once the home of Denver’s elite and today consists of historic mansions, such as ours. The neighborhood has urban character, eclectic architecture and is well known as a haven for young artists, musicians, and bohemians (like Jack Kerouac who lived at the Colburn Hotel just one block from Ember Hostel). Near us is Colfax Avenue, which is the concert and live music hub of Denver! The Fillmore Auditorium, The Ogden Theater, as well as numerous late-night bars, coffee shops, thrift stores and restaurants are just blocks away. The Denver Art Museum, Santa Fe Arts District, and South Broadway bar scene are also walking distance from the hostel.
Travel allows us to fill our life with adventures and create stories we can tell over and over. Like the saying goes, “So much of who you are is where you have been.” Travel and hosteling provide unique opportunities to meet people from all pockets of the earth. It opens our eyes to the true human experience. We at Ember take pride in cultivating that experience and can’t wait to be a part of your journey!
