I stayed in a sixer (two three-bed bunks) at the beginning of August and I was blown away by the my experience at the Bivvi. Room was very clean and the view of the balcony was impressive. The Bivvi's location is prime, sitting atop of all that Breck has to offer, but especially if you're using the Breck free ride bus system. The complimentary breakfast served everyday was delicious and offered a wide array of healthy options. The common area on the first floor was very comfortable, the fire pit and hot tub on the back porch were great additions. The staff created a great atmosphere and welcoming environment that spread to all the guest staying there. I'll definitely stay at the Bivvi again and recommend it to anyone making their way to the Breckenridge area.

We happened on the Bivvi purely by luck. It is advertised as a hostel but they have some very nice hotel rooms as well. Our room was 104. Walking in, it is all efficiency: wardrobe and bed are the largest items, two setting chairs and three small tables around the room. The bathroom is shower only with the hand sink in the main room. The room had a small private porch that the chairs fit quite nicely on. Charm is added in rustic touches: ball jars for the lamps, nice wood trim all around, and flower arrangements. The room was freshly painted and the bed was comfortable.

The Bivvi has a lovely great room with a deck facing the mountains. On the deck is a fireplace and chairs as well as a hot tub. All of these spaces are designed to promote conversation. The breakfast is served in the great room and this was a very pleasant experience.

If you are familiar with the hostel style, DO NOT miss this location. If you are interested in a hotel with friendly staff, a great value, and easy access to Breckenridge, I recommend this location. We will be back!

Room Tip: We did hear noise from around above. We would recommend an upstairs room if you are not an early ri...

We stayed in a private room here and enjoyed it, but a few minor things would have elevated the experience to exceptional. 1.Better lighting in the rooms--ours was really dark and it was hard to read or get ready to go out. 2. Being able to turn the ceiling fan on would have been nice. The room was warm in late June. 3. The corner of the bed is sharp and jutting out--both of us bruised our shins badly on the wood. 4. Maybe a chair to put our things on or sit down on would be a nice touch.

The breakfast was great and the daily beer/wine each afternoon was a welcome touch. We loved the log construction, the close-to-town location, the interaction with other guests and the down to earth service. Overall this place is an outstanding value even if you stay in the private rooms and we'd likely stay here again.

The Bivvi far exceeded our expectations. Everything was lovely, especially the common areas. Our private room was very cozy and clean, with a lovely lofted bed. We loved the hot tub and the fire pit. We will definitely stay again!

Whether you ski or enjoy the summer sun, the Bivvi is a perfect place to stay in Colorado. From the amazing décor to the comfort of the rooms, the excellent breakfast to the awesome view from the hot tub, the Bivvi reflects the extra care and attention to detail that its owners took to ensure a wonderful guest experience.The common areas take the mountain lodge décor to a level suitable for the 21st century. The whole place was spotless and the owners and staff are friendly and helpful. Watching the sun set over Breckenridge from the hot tub and fire pit and making new friends with the other guests was the highlight of a trip that was full of highlights. Our private room was comfortable, clean and well-appointed. We would have stayed another night but word of a good thing gets around quickly and the place was full. We'll be back!

Room Tip: There are both hostel rooms and private rooms - be sure to make the choice that fits your needs.

This place is like the Hotel California...you can check out anytime you like, but you won't want to leave. Super friendly staff, the best breakfast, interesting guests, beautiful setting. I am sharing a 6 person room and the priorities are right...small room and bathroom, big, comfy common spaces.
