Stayed in hostels all over the world and yet again finding a good one in the US is few and far between. Like most US hostels there always seems to be people living in them for the long term and this is no different. Not much of an atmosphere, small common area, no room in the fridge because the guests... More

During the winter months of December, January and February, when we only have a handful of travellers passing through we do offer monthly rates for our rooms. We do not do this for the other nine months. If you had come any time from March through November you would have found the hostel full of travellers, although, in my experience,... More

I've stayed here 3 times, twice in the dorms and once in the camping area. The beds are comfortable and the showers are warm. The atmosphere is friendly and if you in the mood to chat you'll have no problem striking up a conversation with a fellow traveler. I'll be back on my next trip through Moab.

This is a very low cost hostel with dorm beds for less than ten dollars which is a great value. The property is a bit lower end but the common areas are bright and everyone is generally friendly. This is an easy to find well-signed location south of Moab. Lots of sometimes crowded common areas, TV and book area and... More

Thank you for the review and glad you had a good stay. A couple of small points do need correcting. We don't really offer dorm beds for less than $10. They are in fact $11. We still think this is a reasonable deal. I also can't think of any areas that are "off-limits" other than one closet full of cleaning... More

We stayed there over Thanksgiving in a female dorm; it's a fun place, rooms and bathrooms are fine but the kitchen is not clean. They break their own rules, like no pet... Also the last night (11/29/2015) they put two men in our dorm without telling us. I guess the guys have arrived very late and the hostel felt free... More

I am glad you had a mostly good time and thanks for the mostly positive review despite the issues. Some of these things should not have happened. We do have a rule against pets inside. The staff should not be allowing them in. Sometimes people sneak them in without telling us. Also there are a couple of cats that have... More

Cheap!!! And an amazing place to stay!! Awesome staff comfy beds, it was hard for my charger to stay in the wall but a little bit of tape from the reception guy at it was great all night! I'd stay again simply because it's laid back the people are awesome and it's very economic and close to all the sites!

I stayed four nights in this funky hostel and enjoyed it. Ask if long-term guest "Denali Daniels" is sharing his cooking. He made many wonderful meals for us. The visit was greatly enhanced by his great personality and delicious food.

I stayed in my own cabin ($35 per night) for two nights that i had prebooked. Ended up staying a third night because I loved Moab and a dorm room was super cheap -$12! There is a cool dude that makes yummy meals available by donation, the atmosphere is a bit quirky but the staff and people were super friendly!... More

The. Hostel is actually a number of buildings on a site that may be over an acre. Much of the site is dirt and thus when it's wet there's lots of mud tracked into the buildings. This makes the place look dirty. The place is cleaned daily by outside cleaners it's just a big job ! The state of repair... More

I paid $12 to stay here for one night and it was totally worth it. I was in a dorm type room. 2 bunks. Only one other girl was there even though they said 2 of the other beds were rented in my room that night. My main complaint was that my mattress had a very loud plastic protector under... More

We decided to stay in Moab one more night. It was a busy weekend with no hotel rooms available. No camping spots close to town. I thought, "Is there a hostel here?". We gave it a Google and found the Lazy Lizard. My wife and I have never stayed in hostel in the U.S. and were curious. We ended up... More
