This is the worst place i've ever stayed! We booked in for only one night because it was cheap and last minute as we decided to stay an extra night in Vegas, but we still paid far over what we should have done for this awful place!
Our first impressions were not good before we even got to the room thanks to the woman on the front desk. I've never come across someone who is so unfriendly and so unwilling to help. She barely said 2 words while checking us in, when I asked her questions she just completely ignored me and carried on with what she was doing. She didn't even mention payment, so we thought we'd pay on check out, but when we checked out (with a different person who thankfully, was somewhat more friendly), he didn't mention payment either, so we asked and he said the credit card we reserved with was charged when we arrived. We had planned to pay with cash, so were annoyed that we hadn't even been notified upon arrival that our credit card was charged, and we weren't given a receipt.
Although the hostel is located on Las Vegas boulevard, it is an hour on the deuce (bus) to reach the main area of the strip with the bad traffic, and it was too unbearable to walk that far in the heat. Every other hostel we have stayed in on our travels have had information on how to get around etc. Upon asking a staff member how we get to the Greyhound station (something surely they've been asked before, and clearly haven't bothered to find out), she didn't know. The hostel was located in downtown, not too far from Fremont St and it didn't feel the safest area.
Onto the rooms, we booked into a 2 bed dorm, which could only be accessed by walking through a 4 bed dorm, and our bathroom was shared with them. We didn't feel comfortable or secure leaving our belongings in the room, as there were no lockers (even though there were in the 4 bed dorm). The room was tiny, and contained nothing but 2 tiny beds, a tiny table and a chair. The whole feel of the room was very dated. The beds were as hard as rock and I can safely say it was the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in. The bedding clearly hasn't been washed before we arrived because it was covered in hairs. The floor was really sticky and felt like it was covered in sand or something similar. The bathroom was of a good size but half the floor was completely flooded by the shower, and you could hardly even see in the shower the lighting was so bad.
The security in the hostel wasn't good, the common/living area could just be accessed by anyone on the street and the luggage storage was just an outdoor cupboard.
Find an alternative place to stay, there are plenty around, all with pools (something you need in that heat!), and I'm sure they have air con unlike this one, and friendly staff!!
