To most, the word “hostel” conjures up images of backpacking through Europe in eclectic buildings and spending time in communal, affordable lodging. The same holds true for The Solarium International Hostel. In an effort to foster the highest level of immersion, our hostel is located where all the action is and is priced with travelers in mind. We encourage our guests to experience life as a local, eating, and drinking at Fort Collins hot spots and getting to know fellow travelers.

Fort Collins Hostel Open Kitchen

The Solarium Hostel is the most unique lodging destination in Fort Collins with glass ceilings and an atrium that provides a distinctly tropical vibe. Our rooms are designed to leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready to explore to great Colorado outdoors. From our oasis you can take a yoga class, rent a bike, or swing in the hammocks. 

Know Before You Visit:

We have bikes available to rent!

We have laundry service!

We have cool Colorado gear and local snacks for sale in our shop!
