This was mine and my 13 year old daughters first time staying in a hostel, so I don't really have anything for comparison. The the hospitality was not what I had expected, but everyone was friendly and kind.. Other travellers were very friendly, as well. We never had an issue getting our turn in the bathrooms or kitchen. I would... More

This is a cute hostel an hour away from the Grand Canyon. In our room, it was a private room facing the street so the noise and lights from the street really came in. However, the kitchen was cute and relatively clean, and the atmosphere at the place was great.

I stayed here with my friend before heading up to the Grand Canyon and we had so much fun! The rooms were comfortable and just what we needed for the night. The real highlight was the service by the staff. Madi and Mitch were incredible. They made our stay feel like we were staying with friends and family. They told... More

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
