Colorado Springs is the perfect location for experiencing the Pikes Peak region of the Rocky Mountains. Our location is in the city, but we're literally minutes from nature and some of the best hiking, biking, and rock climbing in the state. Garden of the Gods is 5 miles from us and the base of Pikes Peak is only a 20 min drive. So many trails! We offer engaging activities- some onsite to encourage making new friends and some in the city or on the trail to connect guests and staff with the best the area has to offer. As much as we would love to explore and play all day, we do have a job to do and because we strive to give our guests a RAD experience, we work hard as a team and we get it done. We want our volunteers to leave with great memories of Colorado so we encourage a balance of work, adventure, and relaxation.
I am a high energy person who loves welcoming new guests and staff into our hostel. My love of everything Colorado means I enjoy connecting people to all of the best recreational and cultural activities in the area. Our team is super-friendly, fun, adventurous, hard- working, welcoming, and respectful. We love to laugh and have a good time. We're like a big family (from all over the world) so volunteers can expect to be treated like a brother or sister, but without the teasing... okay maybe a little teasing. We can't wait to meet you and show you around!
This was my first Worldpackers experience and it was definitely very nice.My fellow volunteers are wonderful people. We laughed a lot and they were always willing to help me with whatever I needed. Leah, the mgr, was understanding and willing to help. Erin, the owner, is also a very understanding and cheerful person. The tasks were not difficult. At the end of the volunteering, since it was summer, the housekeeping tasks were exhausting, having to clean all or almost all the rooms and do endless laundry. Consider this for future applications. Overall, I am very thankful for all your patience.

I loved my time with the Colorado Adventure Hostel! The fellow staff were super friendly and I felt welcome and accepted the moment I arrived. There’s a ton of opportunity to make lifelong friends and to learn so many new things!
The hostel is located very close to the mountains so it’s perfect for nature lovers. The shifts were very flexible and only working 15 hours per week I felt like I had a lot of free time to explore the city and mountains.

I spent 6 weeks volunteering at this hostel and it has been one of the most rewarding, friendliest, and fun experiences of my life. I will never forget how warm and kind everyone is and how all volunteers support and encourage each other to be the best of ourselves. The hours are very flexible and expectations and responsibilities are very clear. I loved how I was able to work different shifts so it never became monotonous. Leah, the manager, is very compassionate, supportive, strong, and capable and I’m so grateful to have worked with her. I would highly recommend this opportunity to anyone!

One of the best experiences of my life. I met incredible people and made new friends! Amazing landscapes and nature!
The worst part of it was having to leave.
I encourage you all to try it because you won't regret it!
