This was my first stop on my month long journey from San Diego to Maine and it was a great place to start. The location was perfect so you could walk around and explore downtown flagstaff which is a must. Also close to the Grand Canyon as I took a couple days to go hike and they helped me with...

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.

Great hostel, comfortable bed and clean bathrooms. Looks old in some places (like wash table in room) but bathrooms look recently refurbished and are spacious and clean. Very friendly and helpful staff! Can do your laundry for like a dollar, very handy. Location is good with lot of restaurant, pubs and shops close by. Downside is lot of noise during...

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.

I stayed here with my friend before heading up to the Grand Canyon and we had so much fun! The rooms were comfortable and just what we needed for the night. The real highlight was the service by the staff. Madi and Mitch were incredible. They made our stay feel like we were staying with friends and family. They told...

The hotel is cozy. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Just 3 minutes to train station where the Arizona Shuttle bus picks up their clients. Just a little bit hot in the room. Maybe you should open the window for some cool air

If they cared here at all about their guest's well being, then no doubt there'd be window fans. It was so incredibly hot I had to leave the room and go "sleep" out on the couch with the bright light on. Never again. It was late too, and there is no excuse for the cool Flagstaff air to not be...

A nice place to stay, cosy and not far from the train station. You can use the kitchen to prepare your own food and there is a possibility to do your laundry. We liked Flagstaff anyhow and it's a good place to go on to the Grand Canyon: we took the Arizona Shuttle.

There is much to be said about the Grand Canyon International Hostel, all good of course. First the location is perfect, well within walking distance of downtown Flagstaff. The facilities like other hostels I’ve been in (ex. Alaska) seem a little older but are well maintained. The customer service was great; I called ahead to book but decided to get...

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!
