My Story

Hostelkush started in a two bed two bath condo in south Denver.  Just opening up the 2nd bedroom on Airbnb didnt last long. Soon there was a walk-in closet turned bedroom, a twin mattress in one corner of the living room, an L couch, an air mattress on the ground, and a set of bunk beds in another corner. 

I am extremely fortunate to live here in Denver Colorado, and love being able to share my home with everyone! When I started this hostel I was hoping to make some cash while I got to hang out with cool travelers, mountain junkies, and cannabis enthusiasts. I wasn't disappointed! It has always been more than a business. This has been the most rewarding experience of my life.

My journey out to Colorado began in August of 2010 when i just quit my job in Arkansas, packed up my car, and drove out here all by myself. I instantly fell in love with the mountains and the people. I knew I had to make it permanent. I landed a job at Winter Park resort as a ski technician. Meaning I fit boots on skiers and fit skis to the boots. By 2014 I had made my way to Denver and worked in finance at a giant corporate financial company. Then I made the best decision of my life and started hosting guests at my condo through Airbnb. I became addicted immediately to all the interesting people stopping through for a night, a week, a month, or 6 months! I knew this was what i was meant to do.

Now I do everything I can to help everyone visit or move to Colorado as cheaply as possible. I would let everyone stay for free if I could! My greatest successes are when guests use my home to get settled in Colorado and become successful themselves out here. ​​
