Liked: Nothing special.

Disliked: Poor HVAC! For a hot city like Vegas, this place doesn't cut it. They should move the kitchen outside. Too Hot inside. Or add more cooling. Nice people though!!!

Liked: Very friendly staff and lots of nice girls doing volunteer work there. Daily activities are great and fun. I highly recommend this hostel to stay for anybody. The location is very close to the Stratosphere. About 10 minutes walk.

Disliked: If you stay in a big dorm then you most probably better to have a good sleep during the day instead of the night. It is a party place anyway so can be noisy sometimes.

Liked: Great staff, always happening, 1-dollar beers in the wending machine, lots of people knocking about/very sociable and so on. Overall a great place to stay in Vegas.

Disliked: Not much. Maybe the fact that the ac didn't really work (not a biggie in Vegas) and the design of the rooms made it quite hard to sleep (sun smashing your face every time someone opens the door). Apart from small details and that the property is away from the strip, it's all great.

Liked: The location was ok and not far away from all the fun things in Vegas.

Disliked: The room stank and was super cold! I was freezing all the time because you couldn't close the bathroom window and it was wintertime when I was there. When I wanted to go to bed early because I had to get up really early I couldn't sleep until 2 am or later because some people at the hostel turned up the music really loud and were screaming around and nobody of the staff said anything against it.

Liked: For the $15 I paid a night this place was OK..but I didn't feel safe around the hostel at all. It is located close to kind of a parking lot that is very sketchy at night. The hostel can be easily identified from far away by the huge Stripper sign which is just by it. The common room is pretty small, the hangout room is about the same. They offer towels for rent (?!) And lockers for $5. So make sure you bring your own. The only nice parts about this place are the money - VERY cheap and the people (staff included). They're helpful and nice

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: HostelCat is different (in a great way) from many other hostels. They organize outings and plan events and kind of force you to get to know the other guests at the hostel which is good. So whether you're travelling alone or if you're travelling with others, you will enjoy yourself. If you are visiting Las Vegas and want to have a great experience, stay at HostelCat. You will not regret your decision.

Disliked: The surrounding area seems a little dodgy but I found it to be safe enough to walk around alone during the day.

Liked: It's very well located. Every night there was an extra event. Chandler from the hostel was very involved in showing and organising good time in Vegas for all the people who wanted to attend.

Disliked: Only that I couldn't stay longer :)

Liked: Although the price of this hostel is very low it was way better as I expected. It´s very easy to get to know new people and especially the Limo Tour is a very good offer from the hostel.

Disliked: Of course this hostel isn´t the cleanest but according to the price and the location it´s fine.

Liked: Cheap clean rooms. Proximity to the action a bus ride away and the hostel organised tours to the night spots. It has a big 'garden ' enclosed area safe secure for night parties, social activity. A really excellent feature.

Disliked: The fact that it is not open during the night. I would have liked to have been able to make a cup of coffee during the night. One is locked out of the kitchen office lounge room during the night. They don't refund a cancelled stay.

Liked: Most things.

Disliked: I had a private room and when I was out eating dinner one night somebody unlocked and opened my door, turned the light on, turned the heater on, opened the bathroom window and then walked away and left it like that, with my computer and all other things just sitting there waiting for someone to steal. Don't do that.

Liked: Had an amazing stay! Staff were very friendly and helpful. I felt very safe once inside the hostel. Plently to do - nightly activities etc. A++ Can't wait to stay here again. Could easily stay longer.

Disliked: Being next to an adult store. Also, there are a lot of homeless people around at night - feels a little dangerous. I, as a 23 yr old girl, walked around at night once and didn't feel 100% comfortable.

Liked: Hostels in Europe are often tucked away on the 4th or 5th floor of buildings that are otherwise occupied. Not here though. Hostel Cat has their own site consisting of an office/kitchen/social room and an enclosed courtyard consisting of 20 bungalows that each have 10 beds in them. In the courtyard are tables and benches so you can sit and socialise with others, pretty much 24/7 (it is Vegas, after all) Staff are friendly, there are free pancakes in the morning and there is a 24/7 shuttle bus to the Strip (southbound) and downtown Las Vegas (Northbound) . The Stratosphere hotel is a 5 minute walk and on that walk you pass Dino's, one of the best bars in Vegas. It's Great!

Disliked: Nothing!
