2nd time. Really really good hostel. Every day other activities.


Pretty decent spot and unbeatable for the money, just didn't have a lot of character, and the common area was quite small and cramped... much better to hang out outside in the courtyard. Would probably return next time in Vegas....


Great place to hang out and meet people. awesome location in the arts district and just a short walk from the general debauchery of the strip...so win win! There is even air con in the rooms to make sleeping off a hangover that much easier.


I can't remember a thing, so I suppose that means it was pretty awesome!

First impressions not good, doesn't look like a good hostel, but once you settle in its ok. The rooms are good with shower, toilet and lockers. Every night something going on, bus stop is close to hostel, costs $6 for 2hrs or $8 for 24hrs good to get to the strip or you can walk the 40mins. Area didn't look the safest but never had any trouble. You get what you pay for.


Best Hostel I've ever been at, seriously, planning on returning next year for a week. Lots of activities and really good value for money.


Price confusing!! They're very cheap, but you have to add a couple things in the price, even the towel. No air conditioning. (an essential item in Vegas) Good Internet. I wouldn't recommend them, and probably will not go back.

Website & confirmation email & rules you must read BEFORE checking in are very clear on price. If you are referring to the $10 key deposit, you get this back when you check out. It is in your pocket, not ours, so not a real cost of the stay. All rooms have good air conditioning - but your dorm mates can turn on or off. If they do this when they leave, turn it on when you come back! Glad you like the internet, but it's a party hostel - come out with us!


Cheap and ok.


This hotel was located very far away from the strip and the nice places. VERY hot in the rooms, the air-con didn't work so good. The staff was pretty rude and they took extra charges for everything..I would not recommend to stay here since you can find really cheap hotels (cheaper than the hostel) thats located on the strip, with pool, and a working air-con!

Free parking, a/c, breakfast, wifi, tours & activities, coffee/tea/lockers/luggage storage/laundry soap. Hotels charge $15 daily WIFI. A/C is normal here 72F/21C. If your dorm mate turns it off to go 'green' when leaving, turn it ON when you arrive. This is on rules & a colorful sign by a/c. No hotel is cheaper than a hostel here EVER. Ask what will be on your credit card bill when you checkout- never the advertised price at hotels in Vegas. Ask them.


I loved the pencakes in the morning :)


Not enough lockers


Seems to mirror the Vegas party experience, bed was particularly uncomfy but otherwise great value for money. Staff could have been more forthcoming to help you get the most out of your stay.


the staff was quite friendly but incompetent-they couldn't even tell me where the bus stop is for the bus that goes to the airport, and they couldn't answer any other question I had; the rooms could be cleaner; its a bit of a walk to the strip or fremont street (ca. 15 min.) but there is good public transport; they offer good, freshly cooked dinner for only 5 $; good activities at night;


This place was a ton of fun. If you look at it as a party hostel - this is a great place. The staff is great. Hostel events are fun. When I just moved into my room it smelled of piss (not sure why), but I had a blast staying at this place. And the price per night is pretty unbeatable.


The best and most perfect place to stay in Vegas as a backpacker. no question, just book it. every night is different. the hostel is amazing, arranges awesome activities every night. highlight of mine was casino night. you guys rule. definitely coming back as i havent experienced the rest of the week. but vegas was awesome because of this place. safe, clean, good rooms, good location. what more do you need?


The location is in the middle of no nowhere. Especially at night, it is not really safe to walk around. Be careful if u carry wth u nuggets, milkshakes or other kind of food, it will attract all the homeless and dodgy people that count Las Vegas. The hostel itself isn't really clean. Serial killers might share your room. Well, it's better to spend your money in an other hotel that might be a bit more expensive, but it will give u a better experience of the city.

Most guests like our location - 1 mile from Fremont Street Experience, 15 min walk from Stratosphere & ON Las Vegas Blvd & still so cheap! If you want to avoid cities with homeless & suspect the worst of other backpackers in your dorm, you should alter your travel plans significantly.


If you wan't to party come here.


Stayed here during EDC weekend as every hotel in Vegas went up $100 a night. A great atmosphere of youthful international travelers. Not located in the best part of town, and the A/C sucks, but if you're looking to do vegas on the super-cheap, it's not a bad play.


Great place to go in Vegas. Went solo. Get the Loko,a down the road and get on it. Very drinking and party atmosphere on it so if u like peace and quiet don,t stay here ... Then again u should,nt be in Vegas in that case :p


Love it here! The staffs are so cool and the place is really neat and clean for a hostel. It's a little far away from the strip which is good cos it's quieter.
