Small budget stop there! You can't find a better price with such a wonderful location in LV! Safe place to stay. Shower and room cleaned. Activities organized by the hostel as extras. We did not participate but we talked with people who did the day after. It seems that they had fun.

Painted on the wall of the undercover relaxing area are a comedic list of "rules" for vegas, one of those is "Thou shalt extend your stay in las vegas." This rule definitely was followed, with me having so much fun that i ended up extending a 2 night stay to 4 nights. Activities and pub crawls every night, Great helpful... More

Stayed here with friends for almost two weeks. Possibly the best hostel ever, a short bus ride away from the strip, with plenty of social nights. Great for meeting people and just having an amazing time.

Hostel Cat was the first hostel I've stayed at while in the US and I loved it. The atmosphere was cool and laid back, and the staff were super helpful/friendly. Met some awesome people and would 100% recommend staying here if you're on a budget.

I had an amazing time while visiting Vegas. I stayed at Hostel Cat, I was all by myself and people who work there and the other guests were very friendly and helpful. Very good location, I would sure stay over there again. Love it!!!

I stayed here as a solo traveller and had so much fun that I booked again a few weeks later with friends and absolutely loved it both times! Met so many awesome people and had lots of great nights out. Never Mind the hotels- Everyone should stay here!
