Booked the hideaway. Arrived before check-in. Friendly hosts got us a parking spot and some bikes to use around town. Gave excellent suggestions on where to go, where to eat, and how to get there. Hosts felt like housemates, rather than staff members! My Fort Collins trip was great because I stayed at fernweh!

Snoozed and relaxed at the Fernweh whilst in the process of evaluating Fort Collins as a potential habitation zone. Staff was very professional, very friendly, and Cash is a cool doggo. Seems like they've got the hostel thing figured out quite well. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I stayed here in September and we both were super impressed. Like many of the other reviews of Fernweh, we totally agree the value and friendliness is top drawer! My favorite amenity is the available bikes. Just grab one and go, and because Fernweh is centrally located you will not have to bike far to enjoy Fort...

Stayed here for an extended business trip and it was a great choice. Super helpful to have access to a full kitchen, living room with plenty of books, Netflicks, etc. and free use of bikes! Everything was super-clean, people were helpful and overall, it was a comfortable home-like environment. Way cheaper than a hotel too!

I've stayed in many hostels in the US and elsewhere, and this is by far the most comfortable! They have literally every little thing you might have forgotten or didn't bring (even bikes to use and a white noise machine) plus a spacious stylish feel and a relaxing garden/patio. Very reasonable price, I would highly recommend!

I LOVE this place! BEAUTIFUL Inn... Charming, , wonderful old house that has been converted into an inn and hostel. Everything you need is provided for you. Everything is in great condition. A great place for a get-away, for guests from out of town, and for groups. Very convenient to Old Town Fort Collins. There are bikes available, a BBQ,...

Was in Colorado for a couple thousand miles of motorcycling because we lack mountains in Wisconsin. The ride there is over 1100 itself so I figured I could use a day to get off my butt and check out Fort Collins. Chose the Fernweh based upon their positive reviews and I'm happy to say they were completely accurate. Kelsey could...

It was our first visit to Fort Collins on a trip including several CO cities. Fernweh was hands down the absolute best place we stayed! The loft room was very spacious and had everything we needed. The entire house is beautifully and comfortably decorated and spotless. Tyrus was super friendly and helpful and the outdoor space was perfect. Old Town...

I stayed one night in the Treetop Room, which might be a splurge for one person as it holds 4 people with the added bunk beds, but it was a much better value than staying at a hotel downtown. Kelsey wasn't there but Jielia was available and took the time to recommend restaurants within walking distance and downtown recs including...

Staying at the Fernweh and getting to meet Kelsey and Cash was an awesome experience!!! It has changed the way my husband and I will travel. Due to the fact that we planned our vacation late, we ended up staying in every room in the house, except the women's bunk. Every room was immaculate and had little touches of nature...
