The experience you get from Hostel Cat is essentially determined by how much you're willing to invest in it. If you're looking for a cheap base from which to explore Vegas, it's the closest hostel to the casinos on the strip; if additionally you're looking to meet people to experience it with, it can't be beaten. At the start of... More

Stayed here for a few nights while traveling. Pros: Beds are extremely comfy. Rooms have their own toilet and showers There are safes to lock your valuables away, however you must bring a padlock or buy one for reception. The hostel is a little noisy at night but as expected from youths. Staff are nice but laid back Bus stop... More

I stayed here for just one night, flying into Vegas purely as a convenience before driving to the coast. Reading the reviews, it sounded positive and lively and friendly, but as other reviewers mentioned, there's a cliquey feel when you're there. It didn't matter to me as I was only there for 8 hours, although the A/C was insanely loud.... More

Worst hostel I have stayed at in my two years of travelling. Unprofessional staff and management who have no idea what is going on in this unorganised hostel and have no customer service skills whatsoever. Don't bother ringing this hostel to find out prices of rooms etc as this is not what you will be charged when you arrive. Even... More

I've traveled to 39 countries and Hostal Cat in Vegas is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. It's clean, has a kitchen, common room with TV and library, group activities and the location is OK, midway between the Strip and Downtown Vegas. It's the best hostel in Vegas What makes this hostel exceptional is the social aspect. Every... More

This is a nice place to stay for a night or 2. I stayed a couple of nights, and staff was helpful, there was AC in the room which was nice and necessary. It´s a party hostel so expected noise until late. Recommended.

When I stayed here I got $150 stolen from my wallet by a shady roommate, my fault for leaving my wallet lying around the room after a big night out. This hostel provides great socialising atmosphere, events on the strip.

One of the best hostel in Vegas. Besides a very good price, you will find clean rooms, air conditioner in each room, very friendly staff, a central location to discover LV, and a program for the whole week. The best is the weekend program and the roof top pool parties during day time. A must if you are in LV!... More

Me and my friend stayed at Hostel Cat for our 4 day trip to las Vegas. The hostel was easy to bus to from the airport (about a 40 minute transit) and right on the Vegas strip bus route. Staff were very friendly and helpful, we easily arranged a grand canyon your trip through them. They also have nightly outings... More
