The award winning, world renowned Grand Canyon International Hostel is located in the sunny mile high community of Flagstaff Arizona, home to the Northern Arizona University Lumberjacks, Arizona SnowBowl, Lowell Observatory and 6 unique microbreweries crafting signature local ales for your tasting pleasure!
This is the closest hostel to the magnificent GRAND CANYON, which is only 80 miles (128 km) down the road; a definite "must see" destination on any USA tour! From Flagstaff, a 1.5 hour scenic drive takes you past the tallest mountain peak in the state, through the largest Ponderosa Pine Forest in the World, to finally arrive at the rugged rim of the unbelievably immense, 2 billion year old geological marvel; aka - a gargantuan "hole in the ground"!
Inexpensive day hiking tours, super friendly guest services, comfy accommodations, a tasty complimentary breakfast & FREE WI FI, are just a few of the reasons this hostel is a popular respite for nomads from around the globe. It’s the perfect home base to explore the Grand Canyon, Sedona, nearby Ancient Ruins and the many other intriguing attractions Northern Arizona has to offer. After a full day of sightseeing, you’ll enjoy retreating in a charming, cozy environment where interesting, like-minded adventurers gather to rest, recoup, and share their travel tales.
If going “out on the town” is on your holiday agenda, it’s easy to navigate the historic downtown district on foot. The hostel is centrally located in the heart of the city, just steps away from the famous Route 66 corridor, surrounded by loads of eating and drinking establishments. Nightlife abounds in this spirited college town, with many after dark options to choose from including live music, DJ's, dance parties, drink specials and concerts; all within walking distance of the GC Hostel – cheers!
We hope you’ll choose to rest up for the next leg of your journey at the Grand Canyon International Hostel – your "Home Away From Home" in Arizona, USA!
