So I ended up here for 5 nights, and to be fair when we got there the first night I was wondering what I'd done to myself. But after I had some food and a bit of sleep, I started to really appreciate what this Hostel had to offer. It's basic, but clean and comfortable in the rooms, although not... More

Probably best hostel to stay in Vegas, however, not a great hostel in itself, in my opinion. Beds aren't very comfy, one shower for a room of 10+, no breakfast, highly loud Air Conditioning unit. The place is well located, with easy access by bus to the strip/freemont, and it is very economical as well, but don't expect more than... More

Good location ,not a bad place to get some sleep for a solo Traveler, and meet travelers from all over the world. Breakfast was not included, but they did provide some coffee. I would definitely stay there again if passing through Vegas.

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.
