No, it's not the prettiest street in Denver. It's not the prettiest of buildings either...but it's definitly not the hellhole or ghetto some reviews make it out to be.
As long as you realize it is a hostel and not a 'real' hotel you're just fine. Despite it being pretty old, the rooms and facilities are clean. It is a bit of a squeaky building so if you're a (really,really) light sleeper, bring some earplugs.
There is no airconditioning so it can get warm in the summer, although the ceiling fan takes away the worst heat.
It is only a short walk from down town, and walking back on to nights it felt perfectly safe. The only people on the street were some people outside the Mercury cafe...
If you're looking for a affordable place for a couple of nights in Denver, this'll do just fine.
