Aspen, living options for a traveling 17-year old

Driving up to aspen in May for the c++now programming conference and recently had some room share plans fall apart. What kind of options would you guys recommend for staying and sleeping in the car for a week? Places or buildings that you recommend going to for shower/food? Thanks!

Why not camping? You'd have to drive in to Aspen each day but it would be another affordable option.

The St. Moritz has some shared hostel-type rooms, too.

Another option to those above

Sleeping in your car maybe but don't crash hotels to use showers etc. Prob will get you thrown out of town. Cheap eats at Big Wrap, HIckory House for breakfast. Good luck.

Here are the public showers & campgrounds. One can camp in a car in a campground:

^^Except for Difficult your out of luck with campgrounds as your conference pre-dates the openings. If you're set on saving $$ and sleep in your car just park at the Aspen Parking Garage, Rio Grande Pl off of Main Street (near Hotel Jerome where you prob really would like to stay) for $15 a day. St. Moritz would be easiest choice IMO. However, the couch surfing idea looks intriguing.
