This place is old-style. Back to basics backpacking without being basic, reminded me very much of hostels in Africa - legit hostels. Even though it's nice to 'glamp' once in a while, it's also nice to go traditional. The staff were great, there was a shared BBQ on my first night (vegetarian burgers, also!) and there's basic breakfast as well....

This is a very cozy and atmospheric hostel with friendly staff. I went there 3 times and every time I stayed in another room. All of them were very clean. The staff was extremely helpful. I really liked the garden.

It has a cool vibe with clean rooms, easy street parking, and friendly staff. It is really well placed with a ton of interesting places to go within walking distance. My only criticism was the bathroom situation-there isn't a lot of privacy and the bathrooms/showers aren't gender specific.

The location is wonderful, about 10 min walk from the metro station :-) and it is about 30 min metro ride from the airport. The staffs here are awesome, friendly and helpful!! I had a private room which is perfect for me because I had a very big luggage, so I think it is easier for me to have a...

The hostel is in a quiet residential area close to downtown and Roosevelt St. which is an awesome place to check out. Close by there's a nice restaurant Jo Bot, songbird tea and coffee house and a liquor store called the flowershop with artisan craft beer. You can't drink alcohol after ten and binging is not an option. The dorms...

Great quiet neighborhood location that's close to downtown, friendly staff, clean facilities, helpful people, and a great breakfast! I really enjoyed my stay here. Blankets, sheets, pillows all provided-so I was even overpacked. City was easy to navigate and there was a lot of stuff to do. The hostel itself even hosts a lot of events. Overall, I would definitely...

This is a small hostel located a long walk or a short drive from downtown Phoenix in a somewhat poor area. The staff is friendly but the hours are a bit hard to pin down, as the posted hours are not always the same as when a staffer is around. The staff is friendly and in my case they helped...

It's hot in phoenix and this place is the perfect oasis. Spent a week here and loved it. It's practically retro reminds me of what hostels used to be like. I loved it the staff are super friendly and the house is lovely. I spent some quality time in hammocks and chilling on the front porch. Great stop on the...

“In my opinion there are only 2 acceptable bunks, one in each of the 2 dorms. Getting these will increase the liklihood of a good rest.”

“If it's a dorm take advantage of the free ear plugs. Makes a huge difference for a peaceful sleep! Sometimes they're not needed . If you are the super snorer maybe a private room would be considerate ?”

“If you enjoy playing guitar there are 3 of them there. One needed a new set of strings. I did not come across a music store in the city while there. If I had I would have picked up a set. Any guitar players heading down take a set of strings with you......thnx.”
