“Good place to meet travellers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Lots of international travelers. Flagstaff is pretty lil town. Hook up with foreigners who always rent cars! They love American people to travel with & show them around. I met a gorgeous German dude. We drove to Sedona & made love at a vortex site.
Then we travelled up to painted desert area & looked at petrified rocks. I ended up back at Dubeau & to meet other cool travelers who also were looking for summer adventure.

This place hits the sweet spot between funky hostel and BnB chic. Very clean, welcoming and stylish. Also, if you are arriving by train it's literally a stone's throw (if you're a good thower) from the train station. I have stayed in hostels and 5-stars and this is one of my favorite places. Do not fret that their breakfast offerings are less than impressive. Go 100 feet around the corner to Macy's for the best breakfast you can imagine.

We stayed here in the end of March, beginning of April. Nice common room with some games, two kitchens available. There's a natural food market within walking distance to buy groceries or supplies to cook. Reception hours posted on website are not necessarily accurate, but maybe this is an off-season thing. We were also told that breakfast during the week was not at the DuBeau common area, but at the Grand Canyon Hostel (their sister location), which is a block or so away. That's apparently an off-season thing as well, but we didn't know that until we got there. Hot water takes about 10 minutes to kick in in the showers, but is nice and hot once it starts. Website says free coffee available all day, but we were told we had to make it if we wanted it. Not a big deal, but not what we expected. Great staff, good location near train station. They give you a ride to Greyhound station, which is not really walking distance. DuBeau is very near a rock/metal bar, so there were loud bands playing across the street on the weekend, but nice and quiet during the week. Ended up wishing we had stayed in the Grand Canyon hostel instead, but still a very pleasant stay.

We arrived in Flagstaff in a snow storm and were very happy when we got to our room. We had a private room with bathroom, felt more like a hotel than hostel. Warm comfortable bed and good shower. Receptionist gave good information for dinner close by. No breakfast was included.

We stayed in a Deluxe Private room. Very clean and comfortable. Price included breakfast, Wi Fi.
You can also cook other meals in a shared kitchen. Eat in the dining room, outside in the courtyard or in your room. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. The great staff will even pick you up from the Greyhound depot.

My boyfriend and I took a weekend trip up Flagstaff to see a little fall and head up to the Grand Canyon. We chose the DuBeau Hostel because it was the most affordable option in the area we wanted. We got a private room, which unlike their sister hostel, had its own bathroom. The hostel had all kinds of character, two kitchens, free wi-fi and provided breakfast and coffee in the morning. The staff were also super friendly.

The room itself was small. We got the economy private room, and not the deluxe, so we expected this. We could've used a little more room around the bed, but it worked. We also had a desk and a mini fridge (which was great!). I will note that the heater worked great, and a/c wasn't an issue in the fall. I do wish they could have turned on the heat before we got there, as the room was very chilly when we first got there.

We loved being close to the bars, breweries and coffee shops. This also comes with being close to the train, though, and that was very noisy. But this is by no means the hostel's fault, and you're going to get that at any downtown Flagstaff hotel. If this is something that will bother you, try not to stay anywhere central.

The hostel served as a nice little home base for our trip. Now, if this place was called a hotel, or even a motel, I'd rate it quite a bit lower. But, this is a hostel, and I think for what we paid I really enjoyed it and would stay there again.

I really enjoyed the ambience at the DuBeau. Friendly staff and owners, great lounge to hang out in and chat, adequate kitchen and breakfast, good internet access.
It is near the rail line but I never really noticed the trains and the location is otherwise perfect for exploring downtown Flagstaff.
Rooms are basic but adequate and clean. There's off street parking and you can chat to fellow travellers over the dining table. So much better than motel living.
It's more laid back than big city hostels, so the desk isn't always manned, security is pretty loose, and food storage is a bit chaotic, but that's what you'd expect in a small town and it was never a problem. Can't imagine what the reviewer that dissed it so badly was expecting. You just can't please some people.
I wouldn't think of going anywhere else in Flagstaff.

Room Tip: The private room with two doubles is a good option if you don't like sharing a dorm. Book it ear...
