Although the building is old, it is clean, quiet and very well run. The historic downtown location can't be beat for walking to all the bars, restaurants, shops, First Friday Art Walk, Amtrak train station, etc. Plus it is just an hour and a half from the Grand Canyon. They even offer day trips to the Grand Canyon very reasonable... More

A friend and I stayed at the Grand Canyon International Hostel for two nights. When we arrived we had friendly staff checking us in and even though we were very early we got a room kind of quick. The room was clean and had a sink and a mirror which was very nice. The bathrooms with showers were shared and... More

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. Such a lovely place, located a few blocks away from the action. Nice breakfast and staff was very informative about how to reach the grand canyon, restorants, etc- They even gave me a free ride to the Greyhound terminal. Thank you guys

Stayed here so I could make an early start in the Grand Canyon the next day. Don't come here expecting much, the place is rather old and some bits need retouching. But the beds are adequate, there's free breakfast in the morning, and it's in a good location. There is a noticeboard next to reception, be sure to check that... More

The location is great. The staff are friendly. Really affordable. It just is quite dirty and in desperate need of some decorating and TLC. It needs the roof removed, turned upside down and jet washed. It could be a great hostel.

Great hostel in a quaint downtown. Staff was really friendly and fun to chat with about the area. Met a lot of other backpackers as well. The hostel organizes a great day trip to the Grand Canyon. A staff member at the hostel drives you to some scenic vista points and then leads a hike down into the canyon --... More

I've stayed in hostels the whole time and I guess this one just lacked a certain touch. It was grungy without being unclean (which is good) but the mattresses were incredibly hard and uncomfortable and the wi-fi was unreliable. Probs other more comfortable hostels for the same price.

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!!
