The Glenwood Springs Hostel is recognized world-wide as a destination for mountain travelers. Originally built in 1910, an addition was added in 1994 with a full apartment upstairs for long term rentals and downstairs for short term. The front building has short term lodging nightly.
Opportunities for this property include:
- Current bookings throughout the year
- Dual zoning – open to new ideas and growth
- Multiple online platforms for reservations
Our ideal profile for an owner would be an investor who desires to maintain the strong history around this hostel culture and local icon. A background or intrigue in the hospitality industry could be beneficial, as well as a globetrotter or adventure seeker. They could act as an owner/operator and utilize the apartment upstairs for their own living quarters, or be more of a passive owner and hire a property manager who is already connected to the local fabric of Glenwood Springs.
