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!!

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
