It was over new years so the prices can just about be justified. The room itself , a twin private, backed onto a bigger dorm.
So we shared a bathroom. Which was kept clean luckily. The rooms werent so clean... Under the beds were gross.

The location is not great ... Unless you like walking. You are close to the old strip which is good but a far old walk to the new strip.
The prices were high considering friends of mine stayed at a much nicer place at a casio for the same price. Good staff though and Larry is a nice guy.

Having heard that Circus Circus was $18 a night (if you book in advance) And we paid $19 for here . . .

Rooms weren't very clean.

Location is a bit sketchy - didn't sleep well at allllll as was scared most of night someone would steal my stuff!

Staff are very nice and helpful! Always able to help and chat :)

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!!

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.

This was the worst experience in my whole life of traveller around the world (25 years). This place is DIRTY, SMELLY, people is totally unkind and rude. AC was not working in our room and they didn't care. When we went into our room the bed was not ready. I had to discuss with this rude Brittany to get someone clean the room (note: it was 5 PM, room was supposed to be ready)
I had also the bad idea to book a tour with them (I booked with the room, before seeing this mess). It was the worst bus tour I have had. It looks like we were animals. The bus was HOT, dirty and unconfortable. They drop us at the area in the Gran Canyon and nothing more!!!!!! A perfect match with this hotel. Hope you are gonna close the business soon, sin city hostel!

Room Tip: Pick up another hotel. You will get a better room for sure, even in the streen
