So I ended up here for 5 nights, and to be fair when we got there the first night I was wondering what I'd done to myself. But after I had some food and a bit of sleep, I started to really appreciate what this Hostel had to offer. It's basic, but clean and comfortable in the rooms, although not...

Probably best hostel to stay in Vegas, however, not a great hostel in itself, in my opinion. Beds aren't very comfy, one shower for a room of 10+, no breakfast, highly loud Air Conditioning unit. The place is well located, with easy access by bus to the strip/freemont, and it is very economical as well, but don't expect more than...

Good location ,not a bad place to get some sleep for a solo Traveler, and meet travelers from all over the world. Breakfast was not included, but they did provide some coffee. I would definitely stay there again if passing through Vegas.

Everyone was very friendly and immediately welcoming. I felt comfortable and well taken of. The staff does an excellent job of running the place and treats the guests very kindly. Not only was it a nice place to sleep/keep my stuff, but the fun, social atmosphere made it a truly enjoyable place to be.

When you leave the hostel you have the chance to get married in several wedding chapels, I'm sure one was even 24 hours.....so be careful not to get so drunk you wake up with Glenda from Iowa but unfortunately that's the only thing to do on vicinity of the hoste. As for the Hostel itself I have no real complaints,...

Clean and well maintained. The staff are incredibly fun and friendly! Took us to the Monte Carlo pool and Gold Diggers while I was there. You meet lots of interesting people. Only stay at a hostel on weekends like I did as you can get a hotel room for only 10-15 dollars more a night.
