We only stayed in the hostel for one night after transferring from another hotel due to expensive weekend rates. Just glad it was only one night. Anyone could just walk into the main entrance or the side door for the common area. There was little amount of info on places to visit and ways to access areas. The front desk staff were unhelpful and clearly didn't want to be there. We left our luggage prior to check in, which got left in a random outside cupboard, which despite having a lock felt unsafe.
Although located on the strip it is in downtown Vegas. Which took up to an hr on a bus (due to traffic) to reach the main area of the strip. The downtown area was dark and felt unsafe at night.
We booked into a "semi private room" which was a small room, located at the back of a 4 bed dorm. Our room connected to the bathroom which was shared with the dorm. However the connecting door could not be locked and our room did not have lockers to put iPod's in etc. The rooms didn't have air con, the beds were like sleeping on a park bench and the sheets clearly hadn't been cleaned as they were mucky and covered in hair. The floor hadn't been cleaned in months and dirty stuck to your feet if you didn't wear flip flops. The shower flooded the bathroom and the light wasn't bright you had to shower in the dark.
The breakfast described as a continental breakfast consisted of a loaf of bread and some butter put on the table. When checking out we were told our credit card had been charged for our stay even though we wanted to pay by cash to save credit card fees.
Overall I would not reccommend this hostel. I wouldn't even let my dog stay in it. The best thing about it was leaving. I just wished we'd chose to pay the weekend rate and stayed in the Wild Wild West for an extra night.
