HI Phoenix is not particularly walking distance to anything but only a one minute walk from the bus stop, which will get you downtown in about 10 minutes.
Extremely friendly staff, clean facilities and a good breakfast.
I just have one gripe - they have a 'no shoes in dorms' policy and so I arrived back at my room one day to find my shoes on the front step. I'd understand if they were sneakers or whatever, but they were a pair of Ralph Lauren ballet flats that I'd worn once and clearly weren't going to stink out the dorm. I felt a bit miffed that they'd been put outside for anyone to take! (It is a very safe hostel with a great, friendly atmosphere, but you still never really know what people are like.)
Anyway, I had a great stay and would stay there again but next time I'd hide my shoes!!
