not your

average hostel

& memorable.

11th Avenue Hostel has been on the corner of 11th and Broadway welcoming travelers since 1903. As a family-owned operation, we believe that travel should be a point of connection, fun, super clean, affordable, and memorable. After years of saving and planning, then a two year renovation, we reopened our beautifully renovated hostel in February 2022. 

Whether you plan on relaxing in our historic and newly renovated facilities, sipping a coffee in our cafe, sinking into our gel-memory foam beds, or soaking your feet in a vintage clawfoot tub after a day of exploring, we are here for you.

Welcome to the 11th Avenue experience! We are so very happy to have you here.

cozy lobby &
community spaces

Hostels are for connecting; with the city, with the local scene, and with other travelers. Our hostel was designed for digital nomads, backpackers, and seasoned travelers alike to explore, connect, and enjoy the city.

When our building was renovated, we re-imagined all of our public spaces to ensure our guests have the space to work on their own, or co-mingle with new friends.

We love travel. We love meeting new people. And we love how new experiences allow us to grow and learn in ways we never knew possible. We always hope that 11th Avenue Hostel can be Denver's best hostel, welcoming all ages of hostelers, at all seasons in their travel journeys. We believe that our space will serve as a safe, clean space in the heart of Denver for new connections, fun adventures, and a good night's rest.


We love Denver. Always have, always will. More importantly, we love sharing this special city with you.


We can't wait to meet you.
