We went to Vegas for 5 days and OH MY GOD, this hostel was the best place to stay! At first I was apprehensive to stay in a hostel when there were so many amazing hotels and casinos just down the road but I don't regret it for a second. This place was cheap, sociable and so much fun! The... More

This place was recommended to me by a friend, but I was disappointed. Not for the hostel itself which was comfortable and really well priced, but because I only met 3 nice staff members during my stay, the rest were not very nice and not interested to talk/help/answer questions.

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.
