This lodge was great for how I like to travel. My husband and I stayed one night and I found the place clean and comfortable and best of all, close to the river.

Simple Lodge is a hostel by definition of the bunk room, but has more of a B&B vibe. Centrally located in Salida, close to Collegiate Peaks and half way between Denver and Telluride. We stayed upstairs in one of the two private rooms - simply equipt but had everything we needed and was a peaceful place to sleep. Backyard was a great hangout with a firepit and bench and there were even free bikes for use when available. We will be back!

We stayed for one night at Simple Lodge and Hostel and loved our accommodations. The owners, John and Julia, are really wonderful people. As soon as we arrived, they welcomed us into the dinner-preparation routine, which we declined, so they suggested some local places (Amica's being one of them, where we went and it was fabulous - a great recommendation). If you're looking for hostel anonymity, this is not your place. These are seriously friendly people. There was a group breakfast in the morning, and the other guests offered us to join them. The owners were really helpful in giving us driving directions as well.

It is very clean. We stayed in the private family room, and had to walk through the bunk room to get to our room, which we didn't mind at all. The bathroom and showers were very clean as well. The only problem was with the mattress - the mattresses rest on slats, and thus they sag every foot or so. If they put plywood under the mattresses to approximate a box spring, it would be great! We look forward to staying here again!

This place makes me feel like home. The host would provide information on everything you are interested in doing. The location is convenient to all Salida has to offer, A short drive to the Monarch Crest gets you to the Continental Divide Trail and the Colorado Trail. Arkansas River can be heard fro m1 small block away, where the city park is. 4th of July Air Force Music Band provide the top notch entertainment in town. You can't get all this with $25 a night, anywhere east or west of the Continental Divide.
