Great place to stay in Las Vegas. Located on the Strip, thus not far from the most renowned places. Walking distance from bus and monorail station. You can also order a ride for $10 - cheaper than taxi, faster than public transportation. Public transportation sucks in Las Vegas anyway.
Rooms are not very big, but suffucient. Air conditioning placed almost in one of the beds, so it is almost impossible to sleep then with AC on. Bathroom is clean and decent.
Staff members are very helpful and nice. Can recommend.

This is a great place to stay for the solo traveler, the common areas are great and also the night activities. Staff is made up of travellers also so they know what's cool to do in Vegas at the moment. Location wise it IS on the strip, altough a bit far from the famous hotels, just get the 8 dollar bus ticket that lasts for 24 hours and you are set. Free breakfast! A bit simple but hey its a hostel not a resort. Also some days they make $5 meals in the afternoon which are hearty so you won't get hungry while partying.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the main gate.

When hearing about Hostel Cat's location initially I thought oh my god, it's way out of town but in the event its location isn't too bad. There is a bus stop just up the road for the deuce (local bus service uptown to the main part of the strip or further downtown for Fremont Street Experience), plus a parking lot on site if you bring your own car. There is a lot of info provided for you to help make your trip to LV be as cheap for you as possible and lots of discounts offered for tours to the Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion national parks. The staff are very approachable, the rooms are fairly large and clean, A/C provided. On the whole, very impressed with this hostel especially since they provide you with free breakfast (unlimited pancakes, tea and coffee). Thanks for a nice experience!

Rooms are clean, nice staff, 10mins walk to the stratosphere or easy bus service to the strip. It`s really cheap...they have good discounts on excursions drop on drop off in front of the hostel. I will recommend it to people who`s travelling cheap and want to make friends.
Trip to the Canyon was great with breakfast and lunch and beverage at need.
