The Grand Canyon International Hostel is the type of place that blows your expectations out of the water. Their main goal is to be your “Home Away From Home” while you’re visiting their beautiful state. And, they’ve made sure to set up your new home in a great location! They’re the closest hostel to the Grand Canyon — about eighty miles away. In an hour and a half you can be basking in the glory of one of the seven natural wonders of the world! If the outdoors and beautiful landscapes are right up your alley, luckily Antelope Canyon and Sedona are nearby as well. Antelope Canyon is the single most visited slot canyon in the southwest, and rightfully so with the views it has to offer! Here, ambient light peaks in from above, bringing to life the many hues and textures of the winding canyon. Sedona is world renowned for its beautiful red rock vistas, and is popular for its spiritual vortexes. If the urban scene is more for you, turn down a different street: San Francisco Street! That’s the address of this hostel, but also the busiest street in downtown Flagstaff! There are blocks and blocks of interesting things to explore! Whether you’re looking to shop, dance, eat, or drink, you’re guaranteed to discover something you love. Add in the famous Arizona Snowbowl, located just outside of Flagstaff  and boasting an average annual snowfall of 260 inches, and there’s never a moment of boredom. The workers at this hostel put their heart into their organization and take pride in doing a great job of making world adventurers feel at home. Tons of positive reviews prove that they’re doing a phenomenal job!
