Everyone was very friendly and immediately welcoming. I felt comfortable and well taken of. The staff does an excellent job of running the place and treats the guests very kindly. Not only was it a nice place to sleep/keep my stuff, but the fun, social atmosphere made it a truly enjoyable place to be.

When you leave the hostel you have the chance to get married in several wedding chapels, I'm sure one was even 24 hours.....so be careful not to get so drunk you wake up with Glenda from Iowa but unfortunately that's the only thing to do on vicinity of the hoste. As for the Hostel itself I have no real complaints,... More

Clean and well maintained. The staff are incredibly fun and friendly! Took us to the Monte Carlo pool and Gold Diggers while I was there. You meet lots of interesting people. Only stay at a hostel on weekends like I did as you can get a hotel room for only 10-15 dollars more a night.

There's a British accented dude in the reception window. Pretty straight-forward guy as are all the rules written everywhere. This place has a cool set-up where all the bungalows form a secure inner courtyard. I booked the place coz it had great tripad reviews and I wasn't disappointed. It's clean, no funky smells, each bungalow has 3 bunk beds that... More

Pretty grimy looking place, rooms are dark and packed - more outbuildings actually it's not actually one building. The staff are fine and there's a small common area with a tv. No real useful information for travellers and if there's more than one of you you can get a hotel room and be nearer the strip for same money so... More

We stay there for two night. The concept of havig separated little building for rooms is interesting. Unfortunatly, it was raining all the time so we weren't able to enjoy the outside area, wtich we suppose is very friendly when it's comfortable outside. The rooms are very small, there is practically no place to but our luggage. When we were... More

Staff were nice and friendly, location was great. Located at the far end of the strip and very close to Freemont Street Hostel Cat has everything you need in a Vegas hostel close by. Loads of activities organised (although we did not have time to participate in any of them!), breakfast also provided for $5 at bakery opposite (although we... More

The price is really reasonable especially with its location which is between the strip and old downtown area. I stayed in a 6-female dorm. The bed is really comfortable, and all six of us shared one bathroom which is pretty small amount of people compared to other hostels. Most people are there for parties and drinking. As that being said,... More

This was my first hostel so I was sceptical about what I was going to be living in but oh boy was I wrong. This place is amazing for a number of reasons, the rooms are brilliant, considering it's a hostel, come on guys liven up! A bathroom too so no leaving your room looking groggy if you don't want...
