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. This is why ours has been carefully curated to bring you all the comforts of aboutique hotel without sacrificing the community of a hostel. You’ll enjoy pillow-top mattresses, plush king size pillows and when you’re ready to meet other travelers, grab a local beer and head to our gigantic Jacuzzi and fire pit out back.
Our hostel is located in Capitol Hill just a short walk from the state capitol and downtown. 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 and Allen Ginsberg who lived at the Colburn Hotel just one block from Ember Hostel). Near us is Colfax Avenue, which hosts multiple concert venues: The Filmore Auditorium, The Ogden Theater, as well as numerous late-night bars, coffee shops and restaurants. The Denver Art Museum, Santa Fe Arts District, and South Broadway bar scene is 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 bestow 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!
