Thanks to the cozy living room you get to know your fellow travellers easily. The staff is super-friendly and helpful, which makes for a very comfortable atmosphere. Moreover the Hostel is probably the cleanest I have ever seen. Although the house is quite old, everything is always clean. In the winter days it can be quite cold at night. Be... More

I stayed in this hostel in November and it is one of the best hostels Ive stayed in so far! The staff were amazing and so friendly. As a solo traveller it is a perfect place to get to know people. I stayed twice in the hostel. Both times the staff organised a BBQ and a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner for... More

I was at this hostel in December and my time there couldn't have been better. The staff are super friendly and make you feel at home. The atmosphere was very homely and welcoming too. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Very well located, not far from airport, and close to buses, rail and shops on Roosevelt Row. Best hostel... More

I started traveling to Phoenix several years ago for business. After staying in hotels on my trips I was looking for an alternative. I found it! The Hi Hostel - Phoenix is a great alternative to staying in a hotel, with great staff and fun atmosphere I don't stay anywhere else when I come to Phoenix now. It's a great... More

Not only is the location great, and getting better ( surrounding neighbourhood is growing music, bar, restaurant hub ) but the hostel keeps chugging along. Improvements are constantly being made and always excellent staff at work.love it. Now, my recommendations. Every hostel should have a dishwasher controlled by staff. I shudder when I watch some visitors idea of washing up... More

Only stayed one night, but really enjoyed the friendly vibe & comfortable common rooms to chat with fellow travelers. Clean, simple, accommodations & nice outside space. Had a lot of local activities posted to check out as well, which would be fun during a longer visit. Would definitely stay again!

I ended up staying an extra week at what was fast becoming my new home. Great atmosphere and super helpful, informed and friendly staff. There is community breakfast and coffee put out each morning and conversation and guest interaction is highly encouraged. Staff even plan and host some activities on and off site. Hostel is located in the heart of... More

You can't go wrong with this hostel. It's quiet, clean and very well run. Keith and his fellow workers are very hospitable and friendly and create a family atmosphere that seems contagious for all who stay. They are knowledgeable about the city and region and very willing to offer helpful advice and suggestions. Good location in a quiet residential neighborhood... More

Great place to spend a couple of nights if you ever go to Phoenix (very interesting place, btw). Really friendly staff, you feel like at home since minute 1 even if you travel alone. Very comfy living room; there is also a backyard and terrace. Clean bathrooms, and nice kitchen. Highly recommended!

Altough I only stayed one night, arrived in the evening and had to go the next morning, I could not really try all the many possibilities of the hostel. But they advised me very good for a dinner in the evening and I had a great time. If I could, I'd come back to stay longer and explore more.
