Me and my friends stayed at this hostel a couple of weeks ago, and seriously had the best time ever. The atmosphere was so good and I think what made it even better was all the great people we met, this is a great hostel if you´re traveling alone, ´cause you can always find a good party here.

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!

Rooms were clean and bathrooms were average. What is really great about the place is the party atmosphere in the courtyard every night. There are drinks every night, though sometimes things can get a bit noisy. They also run tours to Death Valley and the Grand Canyon, as well as nightly activities including a limo tour and a walking tour... More

Commandment 6: You should change your plans and stay longer in Vegas - Check! I've been travelling around the world for a long time and most of the time in hostels. Hostel Cat is the best I've ever stayed at. It's not that you've got Kingsized beds or a pool, but the people you meet there, the atmosphere, the staff,... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside and it's surrounding location, but inside is very nice. Rooms are clean and have private bathrooms. Beds are comfy, tv room is good size and you get free pancakes in the morning. Decent location and a great price! They do group tours and things as well so a good way to get... More

Nothing fancy but a perfect hostel for solo backpackers looking for a good time. Located in between the Freemont street and the strip (about 30 min walk) so if you dont mind a little walk it's perfect. Free pancakes every morning, a lot of activities at night. Cheap. Young and easy going staff. Stayed here for 6 days and had... More
