The hotel is cozy. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Just 3 minutes to train station where the Arizona Shuttle bus picks up their clients. Just a little bit hot in the room. Maybe you should open the window for some cool air

If they cared here at all about their guest's well being, then no doubt there'd be window fans. It was so incredibly hot I had to leave the room and go "sleep" out on the couch with the bright light on. Never again. It was late too, and there is no excuse for the cool Flagstaff air to not be...

A nice place to stay, cosy and not far from the train station. You can use the kitchen to prepare your own food and there is a possibility to do your laundry. We liked Flagstaff anyhow and it's a good place to go on to the Grand Canyon: we took the Arizona Shuttle.

There is much to be said about the Grand Canyon International Hostel, all good of course. First the location is perfect, well within walking distance of downtown Flagstaff. The facilities like other hostels I’ve been in (ex. Alaska) seem a little older but are well maintained. The customer service was great; I called ahead to book but decided to get... More

This place is pretty shabby, even as far as hostels go. It's a bit overpriced, as well. But it's location is good and you will get a chance to meet some travel mates if you need. There are a lot of internationals here with no car, so they'd appreciate someone to carpool with if you have extra room in your... More

The hostel is located in Flagstaff's historic district. Walking distance to restaurants, bars and shops. If you don't have a car I can recommend the hostel's Grand Canyon tour. Met some cool people there and we rented a car for some more hiking in the Canyon. The hostel also offers free pick up from the Greyhound station. Fairly clean but... More

My brother and I stayed here the night before we headed up the Grand Canyon. Incredibly cheap compared to other places in the area! Great service, clean, felt safe. There is free parking, and the hostel provides towels and bedding. The bathrooms were nicer than expected too. If you are a young traveler who needs a cheap place to stay,... More

I was traveling in July and was staying here for 2 nights. It is very easy to get to from the train station and downtown Flagstaff. It was also the cheapest hotel in the downtown area. The hostel itself is "rustic" (it's nice, but needs a little TLC). I loved my room because it had two windows which were great... More

Staying at a hostel provides a nice, homey type of atmosphere, unlike most hotels. Everyone was very friendly. We chose the hostel because it was in a great location, close to downtown with restaurants and bars within a short walk. Our room faced the main street in front of the hostel, which was very noisy on Friday night, but much... More

I have never stayed in a hostel before and was very happily surprised about the rooms and sharing accomodation. The room I stayed in was a 4 bed room (two bunk bed) which cost $52 for two nights. It was basic, not much room to fit suitcases and bags in. However I was taken in by the charm of this... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcoming happy travelers from around the world for over 20 years! This charming hostel located in the quaint mountain town of Flagstaff, is a fun, friendly and inexpensive place to stay the night, and is only 80 miles from the magnificent Grand Canyon! It provides a unique and relaxing environment which encourages mingling with other guests, including the thousands of International visitors who overnight here every year. Make new friends, practice your foreign language skills and rest up for your next Arizona adventure, all under one roof! There's nothing fancy about this place, but it definitely has loads of charm and character! The accommodation is clean, simple and affordable with cozy dorm rooms on the main level and "themed" private rooms on the upper floor. The location is ideal for those who prefer walking to driving. Exploring historic downtown Flagstaff is easy - a vast selection of restaurants, pubs, shopping and nightlife are all within walking distance. A healthy breakfast, WI FI, parking and taxes are included in the nightly rate, and on site kitchen and laundry facilities are available for guest use as well. We also operate awesome day hiking tours to the Grand Canyon. Shop around and you'll see that we offer the best price in town - guaranteed! We hope you will choose to visit our little "home away from home" very soon. Safe travels! ... more   less
