A Bit About Us:
In September 2018, the ColoRADo Adventure Hostel started welcoming adventurers, travelers, students, and anyone eager to explore all the beauty Colorado Springs has to offer. We're less than 15 minutes from downtown and surrounded by countless hiking and biking trails. We have a variety of private and shared rooms, 2 common kitchens, dining area, 24 hour lounge and backyard with hammocks, games and fire pit. Our days and nights are filled with people sharing stories, laughing, cooking food together, planning trips, singing karaoke, cooking s'mores around the bonfire, and cheering for each other on game nights.

A Bit About Colorado Springs:
Colorado Springs has a great blend of nature experiences (Garden of the Gods, the Incline & Pikes Peak), a thriving arts & culture scene (so many craft breweries, yum), and a variety of nightlife and music venues (we're so ready for outdoor summer concerts, go away Covid). We're about an hour south of Denver, an hour and a half south of Boulder, and a little over 2 hours from some of the best ski resorts in Colorado - Breckenridge, Keystone, Winter Park, and others.
