I was wondering what you all thought.about the development of a hostel in the Silverthorn, Dillon Area..

It would be a small divided off section that is a padded area about 6 by 8 feet, in a room with about 50 others (all divided off and behind sliding doors). The rules would be that there is none to minimal noise made in the community room. There would however, be a room for beers and pool, and a fireplace. There would not be childern under 18 years of age allowed in (due to potential disturbances) , and anyone whom makes a disturbance in the community room would be banned from future visits. And there are showers.

Would you rather pay 5-10$ for a room in a place like this than a hotel?
Would you be interested in more information about the idea?
I can tell you about the place, and you can tell your friends...

Hostels

I have traveled extensivly in S. America, often staying at hostels (for as little as $2us/night). When run correctly- clean, quiet hours in the dorms, etc.- they are a great alternative to typical lodging. If they are dirty &/or excessively noisy, they are worse. Dorm rooms holding 4-6 beds were typical, with roomy common area & kitchen. Beware- it takes a lot of time and energy to run a hostel!

Best of luck-

Marco

When I used to live in summit county a few years back I thought there was a hostel in Silverthorne over by the rec center. If not I think a good quiet clean hostel is a great idea. Like Marco said I have also traveled a bit and spent some time in hostels if it is noisy and dirty I'd rather pay the bucks and get a hotel. Also I stayed in one once that had the option of single occupancy rooms for a bit more that would be cool.

they incorparated a laundramat in with their site and had the benefit of
additional income and providing a great service.

hostel

I think that for less than the current hostel prices ($30) you would have many takers. I'll be living in empire this winter, & even as short a trip as that is, for a few bucks it would be nice not to have to head through the tunnel!

wow, I pay alot more for my padded room now, how about I come live there instead? are your straight jackets goretex? and are your orderlies pretty, or nice? :D

just raggin on you, sounds like a great idea! I would be very tempted to stay there sat nights, if there was any availability!!!! the five or ten bucks idea would ge very far, I wouldn't consider much more myself, as I already pay the outrageous mortgage to live in Colorado at least, even if I hate the drive!

good on ya, and be sure to post it if you really do such a thing.

PS, ever go to telemarktips.com? really active user forum there, all skiers and many in CO
