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

Stayed here for one night while passing through Las Vegas in mid-October. Not cheap for a hostel but its Vegas and this location is close enough to see the lights so ehh. I had looked at their website and saw "!!!Cheapest prices here than all other sites" and had a gullible moment. I was also panicking I wouldnt get a... 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

If your looking for a fun time - this is the place to stay! Activities every night and a very welcoming atmosphere. The hostel has everything you might need. It's quite far to the strip but the bus runs 24 hours very close to the hostel. The public bus from the airport stops just two blocks away.

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.
