Cheap Hostels in Las Vegas: Stay at Las Vegas Hostel in Sin City

Hostels, In-Room Reviews, Las Vegas — By on February 2, 2012 at 12:00 pm

It’s Sin City of the Bellagio fountain light show, Thunder from Down Under Australian dancers, Celine Dion, and thousands of bachelorette parties per year. And footing the weekend bill here gets crazy expensive. Name that city? Yep, you guessed it: Viva, Las Vegas!

Instead of booking a hotel suite that’ll cost hundreds, save your cash by staying in a cheap hostel while you’re in Las Vegas. Las Vegas Hostel, located on 1322 Fremont Street, is more than just a place to sleep in Vegas. It’s the Vegas hot spot for young people on a budget, offering free breakfast, tea and coffee, a pool, hot tub, wireless, luggage storage, linen, parking, and air conditioning (Vegas gets hot!). Staying here is easy. By day, grab a reclining chair and lounge poolside. By night, head to the Las Vegas Strip. Not sure of the best places to party? Sign up for one of the hostel’s pub-crawls and meet other travelers like yourself. Getting even fancier, sign up for the Champagne Limo Tour that runs every Saturday night. It hits the Strip in a limo and visits the hottest nightclubs in Vegas (sans entrance lines and cover charges).

Plus, there’s common space galore at Las Vegas Hostel. Relax in the lounge and play foosball or pool, soak up the sun in the Jacuzzi, or cook a meal in the fully-equipped kitchen (oven, stove, refrigerator, microwave and toaster and loads of dishware and cooking utensils). After dinner, take a pre-clubbing break and catch a show on the TV in attached lounge on the cable television.

Getting there from McCarran International Airport is a piece of cake too. Take local bus #109N for $1.25 and get off at Fremont Street. You can also use Bell Trans shuttle, which leaves from exit #11 in the airport’s main terminal baggage claim area. The shuttle will drop you at the front door for $8.50 per person.

Our only gripe about Las Vegas Hostel? It’s a bit far from the main clubs on the strip. But, any of the knowledgeable staff will hook you up with a taxicab, and the hostel provides so many opportunities at night to meet people and get out, you hardly notice the distance.

An additional FYI: you must be over 18 years to stay at Las Vegas Hostel. Couple dorms are reserved for couples or siblings traveling together. The maximum length of stay is 14 nights for international travelers, 7 nights for Americans.
