“Excellent location, friendly staff, free breakfast, clean rooms & bathrooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

I was lucky enough to get the last bed in the dorm room on the same day and would definitely go back. The staff are super-friendly and helpful, the common room is cozy and set up so it's easy to meet other travellers, the beds & bathrooms are clean and neatly organized and there's a backyard and front porch for relaxing. The location and price really can't be beat - it's located in a residential neighborhood right off the freeway, about 10-15 minutes (no traffic) from the airport. There are some shops and bars within walking distance. The neighborhood is quiet, well-lit and safe. Breakfast is available in the kitchen and the wifi password and towel rentals only cost $1 each. Highly recommended. (http://home.earthlink.net/~phxhostel/)

The staff are local, very helpful and knowledgeable of hostels and travelling. They have a great Mexican Supermarket close by and the front and backyards are relaxing especially in the hammocks! There are musical instruments and board games to play and the light breakfast is amazing (included in your $23 per night). It is a small hostel but the other travellers are friendly and everything is accessible by public transport, thank god you can finally book on-line too!! The Lost Leaf Bar has live music, the filmbar, library, matt's big breakfast and the heard museum are my favorites. STAY HERE - you will not forget or regret it!!

Room Tip: Private Room has shared bath and there is a new family room sleeps 4 people that is amazing! These...

This is such a Great Place! I stayed a couple of years ago.
When your walking down the street looking for it, most likely YOU WILL WALK RIGHT PASS THE HOSTEL! It is that well hidden!
The entrance looks like an entrance to Jurrassic Park! A Lot of Greenary!
You can work for your nights stay here as well.
The Manager Lady is so Cool & Sweet!
They have an AWESOME COMMON ROOM! They have a Piano for playing your latest tunes, Brochures on things To Do in the area, also a Nice GuestBook which you can sign & also look at previous hosteller quotes!
The Kitchen is SUPERB! The backyard is a place to Chill & Relax!
Go there & Enjoy!
