I had a really great time at this hostel. I've been a number of times but it just seems to get better. The beauty of the heritage home turned hostel, authentic landscaping and great staff combine to give you a real sense of the unique character of Tucson. The staff was hugely helpful in finding great places to go out... More

The location of this fabulous, cute hostel is hard to beat. You can walk downtown and are a short bike ride away from the campus/entertainment district too.

Roadrunner is a fabulous little guesthouse hostel in Tucson. I had a car so I can't attest to location as far as buses/train, but it's in a great spot to walk to dozens of places to eat/drink. The staff are friendly, place is clean, kitchen roomy, laundry available, and a nice big living room to gather and watch a movie.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The rooms and common area's were spotlessly clean. The Manager was very helpful and explained everything to us, the complimentary breakfast was a bonus. To stay on the week of the local Rodeo was great timing

I spent 2 nights at Roadrunner Hostel. The place is very clean, a great place to meet people and socialize and the complimentary all-you-can-eat waffle breakfast is delicious. Dorm beds are a bit uncomfortable and the hostel is closed for guests from 12 to 3pm which is a little inconvenient. Prices for dorm beds go up to 35 dollars a... More

Lot's of talk over breakfast, and dinner. During the day they close and clean every day, meticulous about it. And it has wonderful character. I have stayed at... More
