“Perfect for my needs”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

I spent eight days in the nearby mountains during the fall 2013 aspen season, mainly primitive or car camping. Twice I stayed overnight at the CB Hostel to shower, re-organize my gear, and get a relaxing night's sleep. And on my last day of vacation, went to the hostel to get a warm shower prior to my long (16 hr) drive back home.
For basically the price of a campsite, you get clean accommodations, warm shower and kitchen facilities. A laundromat is next door. If all you need is a shower, that's six bucks, but make sure you schedule this during the time that the front desk is staffed. CB is a cozy town, with the restaurants and shops only 4-8 blocks away from the hostel. Since I was in town during the "off season" (i.e., before the slopes open), I lucked out and got a room all to myself during midweek.
Susan, the lady on staff, was courteous and helpful to all the guests.
Would I come back here the next time I go backpacking/climbing in the Elks? Yes!

Really nice place to stay in CB. Super clean well equipped kitchen which, if you've stayed in other hostels, is a wonderful thing. Entire place is clean and pleasant. On site parking. Left behind a sweater and coat. Very nice manager Susan shipped it within hours calling to say she had them.
The town had a relaxed gentle vibe. Great mountain biking. Looking forward to getting back for more next year, maybe even some skiing this winter.
Being at this CB Hostel was a pleasure. Truly.

Enjoyed my stay here. It was pre-season, so I had a whole bunk room to myself for $25. Pillow, blankets, towels. Each bunk has a large, lockable drawer for valuables for which I brought my own lock. Handy for locking my laptop. Plus, each bunk room is card keyed, as is the outside door. Comfortable mattress, individual reading lamps, exceptionally clean restrooms, hot showers, relaxing common room, functional kitchen completely stocked with pots, dishes, silverware, coffee maker, microwave, stove, oven, etc. Wifi was good sitting in the front window seats in the common room. The manager Susan was very friendly and helpful with recommendations and information regarding town. There is a laundromat connected to the hostel. There are also private rooms available. Male & female bunk rooms. Reservations taken. All in all, highly recommended!

Room Tip: Bring a flashlight for nighttime trips to the restroom.

The facility is very nice, clean and convenient, however the service is TERRIBLE. Some college age puke by the name of Ryan appearently thought the place was called a HOSTILE. Every interaction with this kid was unpleasant and rude. It seemed I, as a paying customer, was an interruption of his napping, biking and smoking time. As a specific example, I asked for some clean bath towels. Ryans response was something to the effect of "dude, this is a hostel, we don't service the rooms, you have to tell me what you want." Evidently, standing at the "service desk" requesting towels wasn't adiquate notification for him. The town is lovely, but I got this attitude from many in this community. It seems as if paying customers, ie; tourists, are unwelcome. I am a Colorado native and grew up in a tourist town too. I know it can be frustrating waiting for the first snow and the last tourist, but employees are paid to put aside their desires and serve the customers in front of them. I will gladly take my dollars to Salida, Buena Vista, Cripple Creek or any of the other more welcoming communities in our great state. By the way, I am a top rated customer service agent for one of the worlds largets auto companies; regarding customer service, I am an undisputed authority.

Room Tip: Make sure the hallway light is left on at night so you don't tumble down the stairs in the dark.

Own room in the hostel for $61/night (tax included). The room was small, but clean. Very nicely furnished common area with large kitchen. Looks to be great for families. Met some nice people there, which is perhaps the best feature of hostels. Recommended.

I stayed in the crested butte hostel in late november, before the snow. the hostel was virtually empty so it felt like i had it all to myself. The town of Crested Butte is great but not much to do if you are there before the snow. I think the hostel itself would be a bit crowded when full but it would be one of the cheapest options in town. The kitchen and lounge and washrooms are good and Susan, behind the front desk, was very helpful and friendly. she knows alot about Crested Butte.
Overall i had a good stay.
