Nothing fancy but a perfect hostel for solo backpackers looking for a good time. Located in between the Freemont street and the strip (about 30 min walk) so if you dont mind a little walk it's perfect. Free pancakes every morning, a lot of activities at night. Cheap. Young and easy going staff. Stayed here for 6 days and had... More

The hostel is completely away from the strip but since its a hostel. You would need a 8 Dollar 24 Hrs bus pass to reach the strip area. The dorms were very cramped. I was sharing the dorm with 3 others who were actually volunteers at the hostel. Hence they had a lot of stuff strewn around as they were... More

Hostel cat made my trip in Vegas full with crazy memories. I loved the staff and the outgoing atmosphere. Hostel has a great kitchen where the staff cook diners for you. For a couple of dollars you can get a great meal. I want to thank all the guys and girls Ive met there for a wonderful time. Defiantly recommend... More

I stayed a week at hostel cat and I had a great time. Stayed on the recommendation of a friend that had stayed in February and I was very satisfied. There is always something goin on and it's very easy to meet people. It fosters a great social environment. I loved the activities they put on every night because it... More

The Most Horrible Experience EVER!!!! I ALMOST caught a thief going into my bag when I left the room for a moment, then one of the guests was MASTURBATING in my room for 45 minutes in the middle of the night. After that another wanted to shower from 3 AM to 350 AM, I know because that was the last... More

At this hostel half of guests work there, so they create some kind of "special club" that have privileges over the rest. The staff (half of hostel) only have a good treatament with the rest of the club. This club has a different way of life, so they party only between them. There are homeless living there! The "staff" often... More

I stayed here for a week during NYE and had quite a good time. The social scene is great as the common areas are spacious and encourage mingling. The owner/manager organises almost-daily events to the strip and even provides free transport for them (if you're willing to squeeze in at the back of his van with your fellow hostel-mates). Sure,...

This place belongs in the elite tier of "vortex" hostels that suck you in for days and days and days until you're afraid you might never return to your normal life. Seriously. I had planned to stay one night here before making trips to Flagstaff and LA but kept finding myself paying for another night. I finally made it to... More
