Easy to reach from different destinations and it's only hour drive from marvelous Grand Canyon. Rooms are basic, but people are friendly and open-minded. Showers are clean, breakfast tasty and parking is just few steps away. Hostel crew offers a lot of activities for a fair price, and if you going to the Canyon yourself, don't miss their Sedona tour,...

Very nice showers, limited breakfast with disgustingly sweet porridge sachets. wifi was temperamental but overall perfectly fine stay. Good location for restaurants/bars in Flagstaff in the evening. only an hour's drive to the main sightseeing views and hikes of the GC.

A bit over priced for me but then all hostels are in USA...I liked the HI in Phoenix because they're Open to working mostly cleaning! In exchange for bed. This hostel is well located but they need to turn down the MUSIC blasting as it makes it hard to talk with other guests which is what I enjoy doing when...

The rooms very small, the TV (we had to pay extra for it) worked not like described, very close to the main station (= 1. close to a very good restaurant (Lumberyard Brewing Company), 2. you can here the very looong trains every 45 minutes. I found it a bit confusing as they have two check-in/ -out points.

I lucked into getting a bunk one night and ended up staying for three. It's right by downtown Flagstaff. Everything feels very clean, the staff is friendly, there's a pretty good kitchen, and plenty to eat for breakfast. My only complaint is that the first night I was there it was a little loud at 2am, it's tough to complain...

Stayed here late April 2014. Walking distance from the Amtrak station, they let me in at 0630 to have breakfast, warm and freshen up. Nice people, clean facility other than just some minor attention was needed to the free computer area( dusting and a good wipe down). Would certainly stay here again. A+++ all the way!

We stayed here one night as we passed through Flagstaff on our way West. The hostel's location is good, right downtown. Parking was somewhat limited, but we were able to get a spot in their lot. The hostel has a very warm and cozy vibe, and was much cleaner than expected (including the shared bathrooms and showers). The staff was...
