Totally, absolutely, without question the most superb hostel ever... This place rocks!” – Rich, England

"This place is so warm and welcoming, just absolutely killer! Friendly people everywhere – only stayed one night- but will definitely be back sometime in the future! Thank you so much! Beautiful artwork and decoration everywhere, such

a wonderful place!” -  Michele, North Wales

Little moments; being roommates with 3 Japanese people and understanding

what it’s like to be the “foreigner” by not speaking Japanese. Playing pictionary with 4 Britts and an Australian: even though we are all speaking English there

are still subtleties to our respective cultures. Being able to rub shoulders with

so many different people from so many different cultures, each seeing each

other as special. The best moments are sometimes the unplanned ones!

Simply incredible!” – Leonard, USA

Where do I begin... It's not just a visit to the Grand Canyon; all you need is a smile and a sense of humor, plus the will to mix in, and you will have found the

best hostel in North America. Whether it’s the free breakfast, the crazy staff

or just the incredible spirit that exists here – the reason that traveling is so worthwhile will be realized within the first hour here. I don’t think that my experience will ever be surpassed during the rest of my travels. Thanks guys,

I’ll be back!” – Ross, England

This is absolutely fabulous! Best hostel we’ve stayed in by a long shot; hospitality- great, showers – great, room – great. Great, great, great!” – Mac & Ali

Not many places as cool as this left in the world... Don’t ever change!”–

Emma and I have been traveling for a while and have been in many cities, in many hostels – this is by far the best!! The people, the atmosphere, the food! Everything is fantastic. The Grand Canyon tour is amazing, Ben is a cool guide, and Sedona was also a fantastic day out. I have experienced things like never before. The best 3 days of our holiday thanks to you; I don’t want to leave!! I hope it can even get better. Thanks a million, hope to see you all again someday.” – Kay, England

Forget motel 6, this place rocks! Where else can you stay for only a

few bucks AND meet all kinds of awesome people from all over the world?

Cool...” – “Techno” Tony

Thanks for 4 great days- I’ve only one complaint; each hostel I stay in from

now on is going to pale in comparison!! Great job guys!! Cheers.” – Steve, London

Without a doubt, this is the best hostel ever! Definitely a home away from home.” -  Henry, Germany

For the past week this hostel has become “home” to me. I leave with fantastic memories of Flagstaff, having made many friends and had heaps of fun. This Hostel has been the friendliest, homeliest hostel I have been to... and the best breakfast. Thank you to the friendly, helpful staff for making my stay as excellent as it was; I would love to work here!!" – Kara, Australia

Going away is so sad. This is the only place you just want to stay,

stay and stay...Nice people, great tour to Grand Canyon(Ben, the tour guide

Just like the Grand Canyon, this place is a knockout. It seemed like a birthday party everyday, in fact it was.” – Mark C., England

This place would be wonderful even if it wasn’t so clean and affordable.

The people are like none I’ve ever met before. I’ve been in America my entire

life and I can honestly say these are the friendliest people I’ve met in this country. Keep up the good work. It’s really worth the effort. Very nice place

to stay.” - Michael, USA
