Simple does it with style. So many Colorado high-country, non-chain hotels, motels or the feel like you stepped into a 1950's throwback - and not in the good quaint way. SImple feels like staying the night with your favorite Uncle and Aunt, the ones that know how to have fun and want you to come along for the ride. The...

Whenever I come to Colorado there is no other place Id rather stay. I have stayed at a few hostels and have to say they all are sub par compared to the simple lodge and hostel. It is ran by the most courteous people I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. On top of having great rates the...

I have spent many years coming to Salida for outdoor sports and before Simple Lodge, the choice of a European feeling hostel was nonexistent. Then, Julia, Jon & Co., built this fantastic place that makes me feel very welcome whenever I drop by to rejuvenate my soul in the mountains surrounding Salida. You will first notice that the location is...

The simple lodge hostel is cute, quirky, comfortable and clean. the bright green building is full of life and simple hospitality (like the free pancake mix). Our room had a view out to the street and was immaculately clean. The owners/hosts were very attentive to our needs and interests and pointed out the best pizza place in town, the closest...

I had never stayed in a hostel before and I had pre-conceived notions about what it was going to be like (i envisioned a dirty college dorm), but my friend and I are students and were going to Salida to visit friends and this was a cheap place to stay. I was completely taken aback by how lovely this hostel...

From the moment I arrived at the Simple Lodge, I was treated with the highest levels of service, warmth and hospitality. Never before had I stayed at a hotel or hostel where the staff placed so much emphasis on creating a lifetime of happy memories. The pride they have in their property is displayed in every nook and cranny of...

From the moment I arrived at the Simple Lodge and Hostel, I felt welcome and at home. There was no uncomfortable uncertainty of whether or not I had decided to stay at the right place. The hosts were beyond accommodating and friendly. They helped plan my activities and talked about the local restaurants and bars. The location is excellent -...

The service at the Simple Lodge was second to none. The room was shared and provided a clean and comfortable place to sleep, which was all that was needed. It was perfectly located in a cute little town for those who seek an a quiet vacation. It was also close to the mountains for hikers, the river for rafters and...

Right downtown, and easy to find. If you are a light sleeper and plan on sleeping in, bring some earplugs. The house is from the turn of the century so the floors make a little noise. Awesome place and super nice hosts.

If you don't book here, you're crazy. Jon and Kimberly are GREAT and love to serve and host people. They're relational, affordable, and a sweet place to retreat.

“This is a hoStel - not a hotel. "Private room" means you have a door that partially closes. And you are sharing a toilet and shower.”
