December 31 - NEW YEARS EVE HOUSE PARTY Come celebrate with your favorite hostel crew, meet other great locals and help us wish 2018 adieu. Booze and mixers provided. Champagne toast at midnight! Free for guests. BYOB!

Free for guests. $5 for public.
Red Rocks is a national treasure! Yes, it hosts all of the best traveling musicians. But, it also offers gorgeous hikes, panoramic views including the Denver skyline and wishing cairns.
We are thrilled to partner with Mt. Grit for shuttled trips to Red Rocks on Wednesdays. The trip includes transportation to Red Rocks with pick up and drop off at the hostel and two hours of hiking in the park. An Ember team member will ride along with guests and will also lead you on one of the dozen moderate level hikes. Or take off on your own. <insert quote of path less traveled, hehehe> Afterwards, the group can stop at Red Rocks Beer Garden to quench the high desert thirst!
Spaces are limited. Cost is $20/person. You will pay the shuttle driver, so bring cash.
For comparison: a Lyft or Uber ride to Red Rocks is about $25/one way. Our public transit is awesome, but the closest you can get on bus is about a 2 mile walk to the park. We plan on leaving the hostel at 10 am.
Bring your A game and challenge your hostel mates to a tourney of Chutes and Ladders, Rummikub, Candy Land or your favorite retro board game.
