We stayed here one night and loved this hostel. The main entry/living room is welcoming and friendly, very comfortable and social! Rooms were nicely appointed and had big beautiful windows. Common kitchen areas were clean and well organized, free breakfast was fantastic. Side patio was great for meeting people, made new friends and had a lovely time! Highly recommend staying...

A gem among hostels. The Grand Canyon International Hostel is clean, charming, and cozy. The staff seem to really enjoy their jobs! Breakfast is included. The evening conversations were stimulating and the people were fun. Please stay there even if you have other options.

We loved this hostel, very helpful staff, on site parking even though you're smack bang in the midst of downtown (bars, restaurants all handy) and the breakfast was great (toast, oats and fruit). Our only issue as we were in the top room on the street (which did have a great view) was that as you're in the heart of...

This hostel is in a great location. There is a cheap friendly bar opposite and good food surrounding. The staff are helpful and friendly. Beds comfortable. They had the heating on constantly that i found a little warm. The rooms are very small. Crowded when all 4 beds are filled. Not sure about security either. You can walk in from...

The rooms were old but they were clean. There was a sink and a fridge in the room. I was sharing with three other girls and did score the top bunk. Comfy...just woken by the early risers. Parking and wifi were great. Staff were really helpful especially since I arrived a day before the government shutdown last year. My options...

We stayed in the GCIH for four nights in a "private" (as opposed to dormitory style) room. The accommodations were quite adequate and the staff was very helpful. The negatives first: 1) shared bathroom, but we expected that; no air conditioning, but we didn't need it - the ceiling fan was sufficient; 3) no screens in the windows. That was...

Myself and 5 friends stayed here for one night on a road trip to the grand canyon. The rooms are kinda old style but they are clean . There was a sink and a fan in the room. The top bunk had no side apart from the wall so i was concerned about falling out. The showers/ toilets were kinda...

This is pretty good local hostel to stay if you are considering walking/hiking/exploring the local area. The hostel is kept in pretty good condition, with the rooms and showers cleaned daily. Security is pretty good with only four to a room and locks in both the front door and the individual rooms. Free breakfast is included which is basic but...

Easy to reach from different destinations and it's only hour drive from marvelous Grand Canyon. Rooms are basic, but people are friendly and open-minded. Showers are clean, breakfast tasty and parking is just few steps away. Hostel crew offers a lot of activities for a fair price, and if you going to the Canyon yourself, don't miss their Sedona tour,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
