We are a Member Based entity fostering the burner ethos of Art, Music, Culture, and the ten principles.

Hello, and welcome to the world's first Burner Hostel!

It has been three years since we started this project of turning a tired old hotel in downtown Reno into a community art space, entertainment venue, burner hotel and hostel, and place where Burners can congregate, talk, and enjoy each others company whenever they wish. The response from the Burner community, the city of Reno, and essentially everyone who has been touched by this space has been nothing short of amazing. Today, we are a new shining star right in the heart of Reno, showing the whole world just what Burners are made of; do a quick internet search for the Morris Burner Hotel, and you will see the stir we are creating. Just like the playa, this is a participatory environment, and virtually every visitor gets involved in some way. It is, in essence, very much like a large-scale art project that you would see on the playa, except we all get to enjoy it for years to come.

We have been granted legal status by the City of Reno to be a private club rather than a public hotel. This gives us the freedom to do many unique, creative, and fun things that would be unavailable to us as a public facility. As a condition of this legal status, we must have a unique set of criteria that defines who can partake in membership, and we must both abide by those standards and keep track of our members. This project is the result of hundreds of Burners donating their time, energy, and materials; as such, it is for the Burner community to enjoy.

We have high hopes for our membership system and anticipate it will keep not only those who are participating at the Morris, but burners in general, connected. Many of our ideas are still in the planning and development process, and this applies to the entirety of the Morris. When you sign up for your membership, you will be asked if and how you may be interested in participating. We hope you'll consider it, because we want as many people involved as possible!
