I had a great experience here and would highly recommend this hostel. It's old school, cheap and cheerful, clean with continental breakfast included. Surprisingly quiet rooms, very helpful staff and on my departure the staff drove me to the Greyhound station for free. There are around 3 bathrooms and surprisingly i never had trouble when i needed to use one,...

Flagstaff is an awesome place to get some good eats, wander through the tiny shops and do a pub crawl and all of that is so much more enjoyable when your accommodation is located less than a block from it all. That's why I booked this place and that's why I will definitely go back. Since most hotels/motels in Flagstaff...

I haven't stayed in a hostel for almost 30 years so was a bit apprehensive, but this worked out perfect. The kitchen had excellent amenities, the rooms were clean and quiet, and the location was a block from downtown (so quiet, but convenient). They also offer very interesting tours. The breakfast met expectations - nothing exciting, but fresh fruit was...

My sister and I found the hostel online, we were just looking for a cheap place to stay. Arriving in Flagstaff, we were charmed by the European flair of the old town. And couldn't believe how lucky we had been to pick this hostel. It immediately felt comfortable and a bit like grandma's home, with the old wooden floorboards, the...

I spent three nights here and used it as a basecamp to explore the surrounding area (Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, Walnut Canyon etc) and it was a nice and quiet place to stay. Good people here too. I stayed in a four person dorm, which I only shared with one other backpacker each night. The breakfast was simple, yet enough...

I stayed four nights in one of the female dormitories. The location is great for walking to downtown Flagstaff, but you are still more than an hour from the Grand Canyon. The room and bathrooms were clean. I had several different roommates in my four nights, and all of them were courteous hostel residents. There are two kitchens available for...

Located in Flagstaff, the hostel is right in what is considered downtown. On the same street as many great bars and restaurants. Don't let the name fool you, it's still a drive away from the Grand Canyon, but still a perfect stopping point. Clean, friendly staff and everyone who was staying there at the same time was nice and outgoing....

We stayed here one night and loved this hostel. The main entry/living room is welcoming and friendly, very comfortable and social! Rooms were nicely appointed and had big beautiful windows. Common kitchen areas were clean and well organized, free breakfast was fantastic. Side patio was great for meeting people, made new friends and had a lovely time! Highly recommend staying...

A gem among hostels. The Grand Canyon International Hostel is clean, charming, and cozy. The staff seem to really enjoy their jobs! Breakfast is included. The evening conversations were stimulating and the people were fun. Please stay there even if you have other options.

We loved this hostel, very helpful staff, on site parking even though you're smack bang in the midst of downtown (bars, restaurants all handy) and the breakfast was great (toast, oats and fruit). Our only issue as we were in the top room on the street (which did have a great view) was that as you're in the heart of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
