We the People of Hostel Fish believe that a hostel of backpackers, by backpackers, and for backpackers, shall be a fun, safe, spotless, high-end joint that is Classy as F...(ish!). We are focused on the traveler and the traveler's needs and believe something being affordable should still offer exemplary service and more than expected perks. We believe that shared rooms and neo-urbanism, when combined, create an epicenter for those "seekers of life's adventures" to meet each other and foster new friendships. We're stoked to host you. We're jazzed to have you as our guest. We're here for you and always want to hear your thoughts or suggestions on how we can improve your experience. We're located in the historic Airedale Building in the HEART of downtown Denver. Walking distance to major Denver attractions, Hostel Fish is steps from Coors Field, minutes from the trendy RiNo district, and surrounded by amazing night life.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed here in December and were thoroughly disappointed by our stay. As it was advertised as an "upscale, premium" hostel we thought it worth it to pay a little more but the actual hostel rooms and amenities were equivalent to most other hostels. Then, during our first night we were woken up at 4am on the first night to three men yelling at each other and physically fighting with each other before it sounded like somebody tumbled down the stairs. Afterwords we heard them yelling and shouting for another half hour or so while one of them was audibly retching. After a while one or another of them began yelling repeatedly "help! someone help!". At this my partner got out of bed and stuck his head out to find out what was happening and was told it was a "long story, don't worry about it" by the person throwing up who may also have worked at the hostel. We later learned that the hostel is above a music venue and the two businesses share an elevator. It's possible that the scuffle we heard was caused by concert goers who had drunkenly wandered into the hostel, but that didn't necessarily make us feel any safer After that first night, we decided to stay somewhere else, rather than risk another night of interrupted sleep when we had wedding events to attend the next day. Upon check-out we inquired whether we might be able to cancel our second night because of the disturbance but the staff member told us that "it's a hostel, that's kind of what you get." We did not get our money back. I've stayed at many hostels and have never experienced something like this. If you're choosing between this hostel and a more expensive hotel closer in to the Mall or the Milk Block, go with the hotel. The savings aren't worth it.

I’ve hosteled for decades and around the world. Before arriving, I wrote with a few questions and they responded immediately. Best yet, they have storage in case anyone forgets a lock (though they sell those, too.) Upon checking in, the staff, while short-staffed, was so kind and efficient. The rooms, even the dorm rooms, have a theme. Mine was Paris and it was charming. Chill vibe with lots of things to do. The bar area is cool. They do pub crawls and other events. It’s a great place and I, a single female traveler, recommend it to all kinds of travelers.There are all kinds of layers with different excursions and happenings around the area.

Definitely super nice for a hostile. The bar is really fun, Rea was there a bartender and she was great! I’ll give you a drink ticket when you check in and if you leave a review you get a free drink! Definitely coming back next time I’m in Denver.

While I only stayed in Hostel Fish for 1 night, I would loved to have stayed longer! The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The place in general has a very chilled vibe. Rooms are clean and shower/toilet facilities are great! Only a short walk to downtown Denver. I would definitely recommend staying!

Do not stay here. They have horrendous customer service who pretend to be helpless. Fraudulent charges allowed and then they try and continue to force you to cancel to collect a few when they are notified of the fraud.

I was in the moto room. It was a comfortable stay. Check in was fast and efficient and the front desk person was friendly and wears multiple hats including working the bar. I would stay there again. A great place to meet people and views from the balcony and a free drink upon arrival.
