The best hostel I have stayed in during my touring of the US, great friendly staff, great facilities, met some fantastic people. As a base to travel to the Grand Canyon it's a bus journey away, this is a great place to stay in Flagstaff to see everything else it has to offer. Would recommend if visiting this area!!

He drove us back and checked... More

This hostel is super cute, has a great breakfast and the grand canyon tour they offer with Dylan is fantastic. But most of all big shout out to the nice staff and particularly Jack for my Birthday orange :-) Thanks!

I love this place so much that I went from one night, to two, to three, and now have been here a week. The location is awesome, it's basically in downtown Flagstaff. It is two blocks from the Amtrak Station, less than a mile from Greyhound (and if you schedule in advance, they'll pick you up from Greyhound) and there... More

I had a great experience here and would highly recommend this hostel. It's old school, cheap and cheerful, clean with continental breakfast included. Surprisingly quiet rooms, very helpful staff and on my departure the staff drove me to the Greyhound station for free. There are around 3 bathrooms and surprisingly i never had trouble when i needed to use one,... More

Flagstaff is an awesome place to get some good eats, wander through the tiny shops and do a pub crawl and all of that is so much more enjoyable when your accommodation is located less than a block from it all. That's why I booked this place and that's why I will definitely go back. Since most hotels/motels in Flagstaff... More

I haven't stayed in a hostel for almost 30 years so was a bit apprehensive, but this worked out perfect. The kitchen had excellent amenities, the rooms were clean and quiet, and the location was a block from downtown (so quiet, but convenient). They also offer very interesting tours. The breakfast met expectations - nothing exciting, but fresh fruit was... More

My sister and I found the hostel online, we were just looking for a cheap place to stay. Arriving in Flagstaff, we were charmed by the European flair of the old town. And couldn't believe how lucky we had been to pick this hostel. It immediately felt comfortable and a bit like grandma's home, with the old wooden floorboards, the... More

I spent three nights here and used it as a basecamp to explore the surrounding area (Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, Walnut Canyon etc) and it was a nice and quiet place to stay. Good people here too. I stayed in a four person dorm, which I only shared with one other backpacker each night. The breakfast was simple, yet enough... More

I stayed four nights in one of the female dormitories. The location is great for walking to downtown Flagstaff, but you are still more than an hour from the Grand Canyon. The room and bathrooms were clean. I had several different roommates in my four nights, and all of them were courteous hostel residents. There are two kitchens available for... More
