- 11th Avenue Hotel and Hostel (Formerly Hostel of the Rockies)First to ReviewNov 02, 2013
For a basic hotel and hostel, the 11th Avenue Hotel is pretty darn good. The private rooms are spacious and clean, many with private bathrooms. The dorms are equally as good and the shared bathrooms are well-kept. There’s a common room on-site which has couches and tables plus a flat screen TV as well as an outdoor patio. There’s no shared kitchen, which is a bummer, but being on Broadway, there are tons of restaurants within easy walking distance. The unfortunate thing about the 11th Avenue is that it feels kinda down-and-out. And looking around the place, backpackers and budget travelers seem scarce. When asked, the staff admitted there are a number of pay-by-the-week guests. Obviously, there’s nothing wrong with that, it just changes the atmosphere of a place (and certainly is telling of the economic times).Recommended for:

For the money, this place isn't bad. The building is pretty cool, and the rooms are large, bright, and fairly clean. They have dorm rooms for men and women, and private rooms with either shared or en-suite bathrooms. There’s a communal area, with fridge, cubbies for storage, etc., but no stove. (You’ll get some practice with your microwave cuisine.) As for security, you always have to keep your eyes open on Broadway, but this section is by no means a no-fly zone. And there are some excellent bars and restaurants, including a popular Philly cheese steak place next door. I guess my problem with this place is that it's not really a hostel like you'd find in, say, Spain or France; in fact, it can feel at times like a glorified homeless shelter. That’s not a reason not to stay necessarily, especially since Denver's budget options are fairly limited, but certainly worth being aware of.
