2023 New Year’s Eve Party

How to attend

To come to the party, all you need to do is book a bed at the hostel for December 31st. Better yet, book for the whole weekend and join us for Philip Carcia’s Fireside Chat on the evening of December 30th, followed by a sunrise hike on the morning of the 31st. Your reservation is your ticket to Notch New Year’s Eve; this party is exclusively for Notch Hostel guests.


This year’s theme is Casino Night. Interpret this however you wish when choosing your outfit! This is your chance to get fancy with a sparkly gown or tuxedo. More costumey takes on this theme are welcome – think velvet jackets, feather boas, over-the-top jewelry, and feathered hairpieces. You can also feel free to go super casual. Just like in a real casino, guests will fit right in whether they’re wearing a sweatsuit with a fanny pack and visor or a sequined dress with heels, so pretty much anything goes.
