I complaint about the bed bug to them that I got serious bites after I got home, and asked for refund and told them maybe rather than writing them bad reviews online. The owner replied that I am "lack of knowledge", I "threatened" them and doesn't sound genuine.They replied they are the owner named John McCulloch and the wife Lisa.... More

We stayed here one night as we passed through Flagstaff on our way West. The hostel's location is good, right downtown. Parking was somewhat limited, but we were able to get a spot in their lot. The hostel has a very warm and cozy vibe, and was much cleaner than expected (including the shared bathrooms and showers). The staff was... More

Just stayed here for one night, but it felt so relaxing after a long drive. Room was ok, facilities were acceptable. They provide lite breaky, which is enough for you to save same cash. Hostel location is fair with others in town, walking distance. Staff were friendly too.

I stayed here with friends for 3 nights after spending some time in Vegas. This hostel stood out to me because it was so clean, and the facilities were so well thought out and cared for. There was a nice TV room, kitchen, laundry, etc. Compared to Vegas, the vibe was pretty chill (as you might expect). We didn't pay... More

I just love this place. I've stayed here about a dozen times over the last 5 or so years. Never fail to meet a bunch of fascinating travelers from all over the world. Comfortable but basic surroundings. Free breakfast and parking. Lots of great restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and bars within an easy walk. Attentive staff who seem to take... More

I have to say, I fell in love with Flagstaff! Such a lovely town with nice things to do and to see. I was backpacking on my way to the Grand Canyon and decided to stay here for two day, it's a city around 2h from the GC National Park and has an Amtrak Station in it, since I was... More

We booked accomodation via the web prior to our trip to Flagstaff and intentionally selected these guys because of their fantastic Grand Canyon tours. We arrived from Las Vegas by Greyhound and rang them and were promptly picked up and taken to the hostel where we signed up for the sunset canyon tour. The next morning we all gathered around...

I have been to many hostels throughout and this has to be the one I felt most at home. It was literally like going to your grandmother's house. It was so warm compared to the freezing January snow outside and the staff were like a family! Would recommend this to anyone visiting the Grand Canyon or just to see a... More

During my trips years ago, I had a chance to see a lot of youth hostels. This was one of the most welcoming, customer service oriented and cleanest I've seen. I had arrived from Las Vegas after a long overnight bus ride, and somebody from the hostel was waiting for me at the local Greyhound station to pick me up... More
