Great place for solo travelers & backpackers to stay in Las Vegas. Affordable & clean, its located midway between downtown and the strip but easily connected by the Deuce bus service. A great place to stay! Folks get together every night and have a fun night out so if you are traveling alone or in a group, its a fantastic...

This is a pretty basic place. But their USP is that they only host people who travel internationally (including Americans if they can show proof of international travel). SO, there is good chance to meet backpackers from all over the world and stay in a bohemian style. They are also very particular about hygiene which is good and their staff...

This is one of the best hostels I have ever been to. It completely transformed my experience of Las Vegas for the better. If you are looking for somewhere to make new friends and enjoy what Las Vegas has to offer - then you MUST stay here. The owner Chandler genuinely cares about your experience, and puts in real effort...

Exactly what you want in a hostel. Really social atmosphere, owner runs outings every night where he gets everyone cheap entry and cheap drinks. Close to the strip and downtown. Great location, friendly staff.

Almost everything some ppl rated the hostel 1* for is exactly what I'm looking for in a Vegas hostel.. The staff is friendly and will take good care of you when you go there. It's cheap, clean and they have a good vibe going on. If you're not into parties, drinking and meeting new people you shouldn't go there.. but...

The receptionists are very unfriendly and rude. There are no rules about drinking over night. I seriously saw two guys taking cocaine right in from the main entrance to the rooms and in from a cctv... Please, take attention to this type of guests. The price is quite good and kitchen is small but acceptable. I could stay here again...

For all the backpackers - this is THE place to stay. If you are looking for a cheap place to stay and lots of new people to meet, choose Hostel Cat. One thing - they don't have breakfast included, but there are a lot of diners and stores around. The bust stops are a minute's walk away. You can easily...

I would definitely not recommend to stay in this hostel. I read the comments and they wrote about breakfast, but I think they don't do it anymore, while there was no breakfast at all. They referred me to a kind of bakery. I had the feeling they tried to make money out of everything. I wanted to print my ticket...
