Best way to experience Flagstaff. Great way to practice your second and third language as well. Most visitors are from overseas and really friendly. Took the hostel Grand Canyon tour and managed to see the route less traveled. Our tour guide Kevin had the know-how on the best sights and how to avoid the mass of tourists.

This place is legit. Real cool staff, I don't understand how people rate it anything less. lost my key, no problems. They're really cool, people passing through too. stay here. It's a bit noisy, but nothing that interferes with your sleep. (duh its a hostel).

Good hostel. Only stayed one night, but very friendly staff and just a chill place. Also really liked the town itself. You can wash your clothes after 14 or just go around the corner for a cheap laundromat. Would definitely return here.

I stayed here with a group of my girl friends when visiting the Grand Canyon. The staff were so friendly and helpful and overall made the experience great. The rooms were basic but very clean, with a sink and mirror which was useful. The breakfasts and facilities were excellent. There was a common room which had a range of brochures,...

The female dorms are downstairs in a creek old building. You can here EVERYTHING that is happening especially because of people using the kitchen at all hours. There are alleged "quiet hours" but no one actually goes by them. This place is easy to find, parking is somewhat confusing so call first to figure out those details - you cannot...

I was backpacking across the USA and other countries as part of a 3month round the world trip with my brother, and we stayed here for when we visited the Grand Canyon.

I stayed here for 2 nights. The place was nice with clean rooms, kitchen and bathrooms along with complementary breakfast. I stayed here for the first night and then went camping in Grand Canyon for the next 5 days. They also stored my luggage when I was away and then came back to stay here the second night.

I stayed here for 2 nights on a whirlwind tour of the area. Bring earplugs and don't be a person who is disconcerted by the shaking of the building (all night long) by the passing train. Sigh ... they were long nights for me without this warning.

This was my first stop on my month long journey from San Diego to Maine and it was a great place to start. The location was perfect so you could walk around and explore downtown flagstaff which is a must. Also close to the Grand Canyon as I took a couple days to go hike and they helped me with...

Welcoming happy travelers from around the world for over 20 years! This charming hostel located in the quaint mountain town of Flagstaff, is a fun, friendly and inexpensive place to stay the night, and is only 80 miles from the magnificent Grand Canyon! It provides a unique and relaxing environment which encourages mingling with other guests, including the thousands of International visitors who overnight here every year. Make new friends, practice your foreign language skills and rest up for your next Arizona adventure, all under one roof! There's nothing fancy about this place, but it definitely has loads of charm and character! The accommodation is clean, simple and affordable with cozy dorm rooms on the main level and "themed" private rooms on the upper floor. The location is ideal for those who prefer walking to driving. Exploring historic downtown Flagstaff is easy - a vast selection of restaurants, pubs, shopping and nightlife are all within walking distance. A healthy breakfast, WI FI, parking and taxes are included in the nightly rate, and on site kitchen and laundry facilities are available for guest use as well. We also operate awesome day hiking tours to the Grand Canyon. Shop around and you'll see that we offer the best price in town - guaranteed! We hope you will choose to visit our little "home away from home" very soon. Safe travels! ... more   less

“The dormitory is the best cost effective choice, unless you require more privacy then go with the private room.”
