Great hostel in the Rockies Jul 05, 2009
Just a block away from the main street, the Estes Park Hostel is the only hostel in the town of that the place is named after. Not easy to find, with no outside sign to identify the place, as it looks like a home.
The other thing is that to enter, you have to go up the stairs on the side of the building. But you may not know that, unless you looked at a sign on the front door, directing you to there. Once you go inside, the owner may or may not be there, as you are trying to check-in. And there is no reception desk, but a phone number to get in contact with the owner, if you need to get a hold of her.
But once you get that taken care of, this is a great place to stay at. And the owner, Terri, is very nice and interesting to talk to. It feels more like being in someone’s home than a hostel, with the way the place is set up, and the feel of it. A lounge to hang out, and there is free internet access on the only computer there. But that computer is kind of slow.
The rooms themselves are nice, with a bathroom down the hall. Plus it has a kitchen and microwave, in case you need to use those. And if need a place to eat, you are only a short walk from the main street, which is full of restaurants to choose from.
Chances are, you will be arriving into town by car, and there is a free parking lot nearby. And there may be others, but you have to ask Terri about that.
Not too far from the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Being the only low-cost option for lodging in this town, and at a great location, this hostel will definitely get your money’s worth.
