Situated at the central location surrounded by Grand Canyon, Sedona, Meteor Crater, Antelope Canyon and Horse shoe bend, also on the historic Route 66 is an ideal place to see all the places around. The place itself is cozy, looks old but clean and neat. Bathrooms are well maintained and healthy. The staff if very helpful, courteous and accommodating. Wifi... More

This is pretty good local hostel to stay if you are considering walking/hiking/exploring the local area. The hostel is kept in pretty good condition, with the rooms and showers cleaned daily. Security is pretty good with only four to a room and locks in both the front door and the individual rooms. Free breakfast is included which is basic but... More

Easy to reach from different destinations and it's only hour drive from marvelous Grand Canyon. Rooms are basic, but people are friendly and open-minded. Showers are clean, breakfast tasty and parking is just few steps away. Hostel crew offers a lot of activities for a fair price, and if you going to the Canyon yourself, don't miss their Sedona tour,... More

Very nice showers, limited breakfast with disgustingly sweet porridge sachets. wifi was temperamental but overall perfectly fine stay. Good location for restaurants/bars in Flagstaff in the evening. only an hour's drive to the main sightseeing views and hikes of the GC.

A bit over priced for me but then all hostels are in USA...I liked the HI in Phoenix because they're Open to working mostly cleaning! In exchange for bed. This hostel is well located but they need to turn down the MUSIC blasting as it makes it hard to talk with other guests which is what I enjoy doing when... More

The rooms very small, the TV (we had to pay extra for it) worked not like described, very close to the main station (= 1. close to a very good restaurant (Lumberyard Brewing Company), 2. you can here the very looong trains every 45 minutes. I found it a bit confusing as they have two check-in/ -out points.

I lucked into getting a bunk one night and ended up staying for three. It's right by downtown Flagstaff. Everything feels very clean, the staff is friendly, there's a pretty good kitchen, and plenty to eat for breakfast. My only complaint is that the first night I was there it was a little loud at 2am, it's tough to complain... More

Stayed here late April 2014. Walking distance from the Amtrak station, they let me in at 0630 to have breakfast, warm and freshen up. Nice people, clean facility other than just some minor attention was needed to the free computer area( dusting and a good wipe down). Would certainly stay here again. A+++ all the way!

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

Welcoming happy travelers from around the world for over 20 years! This charming hostel located in the quaint mountain town of Flagstaff, is a fun, friendly and inexpensive place to stay, and is only 80 miles from the magnificent Grand Canyon! It provides a unique and relaxing environment which encourages mingling with other guests, including the thousands of International visitors who overnight here every year. Make new friends, practice your foreign language skills and rest up for your next Arizona adventure, all under one roof! There's nothing fancy about this place, but it definitely has character! The accommodation is clean, simple and affordable with cozy dorm rooms on the main level and “themed” private rooms on the upper floor. The location is ideal for those who prefer walking to driving.
