The Simple Lodge & Hostel is the perfect place to call home while you enjoy central Colorado's many recreational activities. Affordable, yet as nice as any bed & breakfast or hotel around, we offer the most social lodging experience in all of Salida. The ONLY place to stay in historic downtown Salida, we are close to whitewater rafting, mountain biking, hiking, skiing, hunting and fishing. We can point you in the right direction for any outdoor activity you desire.

Winter in the Mountains; Late Fall in Town
Ah the wonders of the Banana Belt with sunny and warm days in town while the 'Monarch Cloud' dumps snow just 20 minutes away in the Mountains. Makes for good skiing and mountain biking. Hope to see you soon! **Simple Lodge & Hostel is for sale. (business only) See our 'news' page for details.**

"I've stayed at hundreds of hostels on four continents. You have a great thing going here. Charm, character, and warm welcome. Great job keeping it simple!" - Dylan
