Colorado Auberges de Jeunesse

Denver is fabulous if you enjoy a steep unemployment rate, relentless traffic congestion, cowtown ways, low paying jobs, outrageous housing prices, bland people, very racially divided attitudes/neighborhoods, and Anglo-dominated culture (no culture!).
Of course, there are always exceptions but you'll find that most people in Denver keep to themselves and are somewhat suspicious of "outsiders." It's like a closed-door mentality and it's not easy to fit in. The winters are brutal and can get numbingly cold. It is for avid skiers only.
Stayed in Glenwood Springs in 1999! Went there for a 10 day ski trip and stayed 4 months. What an awsome spot. So much to see and do. Plenty of outdoor life, skiing in winter, mountain biking, hiking, frisbee golf in summer. The Glenwood Springs Hostel is great with all the assistance you need and a wonderful atmosphere. A definate hotspot!
If you can't find something fun to do in Denver you aren't trying. Whether clubs, art galleries/museums, or nature is your thing there is plenty to do. Getting around in Denver is easy -- there's no subway but Denver has one of the best public transport systems in the country. Of course going to ski can be crowded, but what do you expect when five of the top ten ski areas in the U.S. are all in the same area? There is good food, you just have to drive outside of downtown a little to get some of it.
Denver was nice thirty years ago, but I recently visited and was disgusted by the way they have massacred the country side with cookie-cutter condos to accommodate all of the transplants from California who have brought their own way of doing things. My parents and brother have moved back out there (from greater Boston). The people are very different from the traditional values I am used to. It's too bad. I liked it there before all of California moved there and ruined it for all the locals and others from other areas of the country looking for a better life and to escape exactly what Colorado has become.
Denver is one of the coolest cities I've ever lived in, although I haven't lived in many other large cities. What's awesome about it though, is its proximity to so many beautiful pristine places. There is so much to do right close to Denver -- they have some of the best mountain and road biking, skiing of course, awesome rivers for rafting and kayaking, and a bazillion trails to explore.
