Only stayed at the hostel one night but it was possible value for money. Located in a slightly questionable area but near a bus stop which takes you to the strip. Sociable and full of young people.


The location is great. Walking distance from Downton and all night clubs. The staff were really friendly specially Maria and Jason. We had free bbq during the week and others activities too. I would recommend it.

Glad you had fun Rafael, we enjoyed you as much as you enjoyed us!


Amazing staff and over all great hostel. Definitely some where to stay when going through the dessert. Priscilla and Ivan were absolutely amazing, especially Ivan(he's cute) - also I like that the owner hangs out around the place as well.

Hey Branden, We hope your flight home was better than the one here! If you're ever in Vegas again, we would love to have you back! PS, We are all cute ;)


I had a great time staying at Sin City Hostel. The staff was vert helpfull and friendly, especially Bonnie, who will be very happy now she's mentioned again in a review. Location is a bit further from the strip, but Downtown Las Vegas and Fremont Street are on walking distance. Wish is the coolest area anyway. Basic Breakfast in the morning, but you have all you need.


I don't feel safe with the door locks, feels easy to break and the door opens out to the parking lot then the street. Easy for outsider to break into. Breakfast was good - waffles, pbj, coffee Great value for money. All good except for the door locks.

Hello Joan, We are very sorry to hear you did not feel that the locks were secure. Since you have left, we have installed new locks on all of the dorms also we are in the process of having a front gate installed, making the hostel even more secure. We hope you will take these changes into consideration if you are ever in Las Vegas again. We would love to have you back. Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your patronship.

Definitely the perfect place to stay in Vegas. The staff was always helpful which made it easy for me to plan my trips to locations outside Las Vegas like Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon etc. Did a helicopter tour over Vegas by night as well which was a stunning experience. Met so many good people there from all over the world and I'm still in contact with a lot of them. Just can recommend Sin City Hostel for travelers but even for people who are just stoping by because of the amazing atmosphere!


A little far from the strip, but the bus station is just around the corner and they also have parking lots right in front of the hostel. Very nice staff and clean rooms with lockers. The breakfast is rather small, but ok for the price :)

Very Nice hostel!! The personnel are so Nice thank you for everything


Although the hostel organises tours and nights out, the receptionists do very little to advertise them (none of them were particularly unhelpful but they just seemed to be busy watching Netflix rather than making the place feel like a lively hostel). The bedrooms are spacious but very open to the street (they don't have a gate so anyone could walk up to the bedrooms level and knock on the doors/windows). The bus to the Strip takes a long time :( Breakfast is ok and the common room is nice!


Sin City was great! Rooms and bathrooms were clean, staff was very friendly, location was not too far from the strip and very close to a bus stop. Thanks guys!


Best Hostel I have ever been in. Very clean and nice.


Realmente me sentí muy cómodo en el hostel Sin City. Extendí mi estadía en la ciudad de Las Vegas por la buena calidad en la atención del personal que allí me atendieron. 100% Recomendable! I really felt very comfortable in the hostel Sin City. I extended my stay in the city of Las Vegas for good quality care staff who attended me there. 100% Recommended!


Homeless person talked her way into dorms, stole my bag. Staff didn't care except to point out that they weren't responsible. Staff saw her on site, let her leave with the bag, police report wasn't filed.


Amazing place! One of the best hostels that I stayed in US.


Very clean! A little far from all the attractions on Las Vegas blvd if you decide to walk.


the place was EMPTY the staff was very unfriendly and refussed to serve me before the match that the guy was watching on TV ended!!! The hostel organized 000 night activities I left less than 24 hs after i checked in and went to Hostel cat, just 1 block away. That´s another world, just like a hostle should be

We are very sorry we weren't able to meet your expectations, the hostel was at more than 50% occupancy on the night you checked in, however it was a Sunday night in Vegas, which could explain why the hostel felt "Empty" We are so very happy to hear that you were able to find accommodation in a hostel that suited your expectations.


The hostel is located in between the strip and downtown Las Vegas which is easily accessible by bus (even though the cheapest ticket is a 2 hour bus pass for $6) and the tours that can be arranged with the hostel are very good! However, the mattress was terrible, it was like a plank of wood! Also, the floor in our room would turn out feet and socks black and the toilet wouldn't flush even though someone came to "fix" it.


Good for what is advertised. A budget hostel in Las Vegas. As expected, location isn't great but is manageable for a short stay


Really nice chilled out hostel. Staff are helpful and always available. Location is fine just take a little care at night. Short walk to any of the bus stations which take you straight to the strip. Enjoyed my stay and met some great people
