It's a great way to experience Vegas on the cheap. If you're the kind to stay in a big luxury hotel and just go to your hotel's pool party it's not for you but for anyone that wants a social and cheap stay in Vegas, I strongly recommend it. Ok, first the good things about this hostel: The price during... More

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights, and really enjoyed my stay. The friends and memories I made in that short time made my stay in Vegas an awesome experience! I loved that the hostel had activities and events offered every night, as well as offering breakfast included with the low room rate. Vegas being Vegas, I felt comfortable... More

We stayed here for 2 nights after finishing our 5 week road trip and were just looking for a cheap place where we could get washed and organised before starting our "luxury" birthday celebrations. It is at the north end of the Strip between the Strip and Downtown, despite the hostels constant protestations it did not feel like a safe... More

Hostel Cat is the place to stat if you're traveling to Las Vegas alone, but still want to meet people and have a great time partying! The dorms each have their own bathrooms and air conditioned and have lockers. The hostel is extremely social, with events each night and some of the staff interact with guests as well. Would definitely... More
