The female dorms are downstairs in a creek old building. You can here EVERYTHING that is happening especially because of people using the kitchen at all hours. There are alleged "quiet hours" but no one actually goes by them. This place is easy to find, parking is somewhat confusing so call first to figure out those details - you cannot...

I was backpacking across the USA and other countries as part of a 3month round the world trip with my brother, and we stayed here for when we visited the Grand Canyon. As we were travelling by Amtrak, we really appreciated how close it was and easy to find! We hopped off our train at midnight and obviously were a...

I stayed here for 2 nights. The place was nice with clean rooms, kitchen and bathrooms along with complementary breakfast. I stayed here for the first night and then went camping in Grand Canyon for the next 5 days. They also stored my luggage when I was away and then came back to stay here the second night.

I stayed here for 2 nights on a whirlwind tour of the area. Bring earplugs and don't be a person who is disconcerted by the shaking of the building (all night long) by the passing train. Sigh ... they were long nights for me without this warning.

I stayed in the hostel for 3 nights, each was supposed to be $24. However my credit card was charged twice and I end up paying $48 a night for a bed in a dorm. The hostel have not replied to any of my emails or messages.

This was mine and my 13 year old daughters first time staying in a hostel, so I don't really have anything for comparison. The the hospitality was not what I had expected, but everyone was friendly and kind.. Other travellers were very friendly, as well. We never had an issue getting our turn in the bathrooms or kitchen. I would...

This is a cute hostel an hour away from the Grand Canyon. In our room, it was a private room facing the street so the noise and lights from the street really came in. However, the kitchen was cute and relatively clean, and the atmosphere at the place was great.

Welcoming happy travelers from around the world for over 20 years! This charming hostel located in the quaint mountain town of Flagstaff, is a fun, friendly and inexpensive place to stay the night, and is only 80 miles from the magnificent Grand Canyon! It provides a unique and relaxing environment which encourages mingling with other guests, including the thousands of International visitors who overnight here every year. Make new friends, practice your foreign language skills and rest up for your next Arizona adventure, all under one roof! There's nothing fancy about this place, but it definitely has loads of charm and character! The accommodation is clean, simple and affordable with cozy dorm rooms on the main level and "themed" private rooms on the upper floor. The location is ideal for those who prefer walking to driving. Exploring historic downtown Flagstaff is easy - a vast selection of restaurants, pubs, shopping and nightlife are all within walking distance. A healthy breakfast, WI FI, parking and taxes are included in the nightly rate, and on site kitchen and laundry facilities are available for guest use as well. We also operate awesome day hiking tours to the Grand Canyon. Shop around and you'll see that we offer the best price in town - guaranteed! We hope you will choose to visit our little "home away from home" very soon. Safe travels! ... more   less
