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

Stayed here for 4days the staff were so accommodating & the place super clean! It's a little far from the strip but right next to the Duce bus stop which only costs $8 for 24hrs & comes every 15mins. Activities every night & is very understanding to budget travellers. Would recommend this to any of my friends :) Thanks Hostel... More

My stay at Hostel Cat started with a surprise. I was told that they cater to international travelers and that Americans engaged in domestic travel would be charged an extra $3 per day. When I expressed my disappointment, the lovely lady at he front desk was able to waive the extra charge which considering my stay was for 15 nights... More

I agree with the other reviewers. The staff acts like they are a little elitist club of fake "Plastics" a la Mean Girls, but with both genders. The staff is actually just kids hard up on money, travelers who work in exchange for room and board. (Free morning pancakes and some dinner for them.) They either do front desk or... More

Everynight there is a different attractions. You will see all the fun in Vegas. I suggest u to stay in 10 people rooms. More people more fun. For boys don't come without visit the next door. You will understand when u get there.Good luck guys:)
