beds, showers etc were average. The rooms had aircon (thank god). They organized events every day and the overall atmosphere in the hostel was very friendly- 24 hours a day there will always be people in the courtyard to talk to and the $1 beer vending machine came in handy. Free pancakes tasted awful, but a free breakfast is a... More

I travelled to hostel cat and was greeted by the helpful staff. After being told of the rules and given my bedding I proceeded to the courtyard and started the drinking games. There was no pressure to join and so I just hung around meeting everyone. We then went to downtown las vegas and had a great night full of... More

This is the best place I ever stayed in. The staff are really helpful with useful advice about Vegas. They also organise fantastic activities in the evening. They is very friendly communal area , where you can listen to music and you can chat with other fellow residents.

This hostel is one of the best I've stayed in! Rooms are cleaned daily, there are activities organised daily also. The price is unbeatable value. Location is good also. If you don't mind walking the mile or so to the start of the strip, if not there is a bus that stops right outside the hostel! Will stay again!

First of all...this is Las Vegas. You don't go there to sleep! But after a couple of days you need a place to crash...and after spending your money on party, drinks, dices and cards, etc. you need a good place to stay, budget-friendly and specially if you are traveling alone or in a small group...a place to meet other travelers....

Unlike many of the other hostels I stayed in whilst travelling the states, Hostel Cat was very cheap - at only $16 a night. I was slightly concerned about staying here after reading some of the reviews... however, I was thoroughly suprised! The hostel was amazing! The rooms were adequate with comfy beds, clean sheets, lockers and en-suite bathrooms. The... More

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.

Also, there's a deuce bus that goes up and down the strip (it'll save ya $$$). Hostel Cat is located on that strip so... More

This place has the best atmosphere if you want to meet new people, mix up with them and party insane. I have been to hostels in NY and Miami who look like hotels, where people are usually in groups.Therefore... More
