HELLO, we're glad you found us!

We own and operate the Grand Canyon and DuBeau Route 66 International Hostels in Flagstaff Arizona; "the gateway to the Grand Canyon". These are the closest hostels to the Grand Canyon (which is only a 1.5 hour drive from Flagstaff), and both have been acknowledged by the "Lets Go Guide" as two of the top hostels in America!  

Hosts Johnny and Lisa McCulloch


We are commited to providing excellent customer service and facilities. We offer "first class" backpacker accommodation, and strive to make each one of our guests feel welcome, and leave satisfied. Our super friendly staff is ready and willing to answer questions about the area, help you with your travel plans or assist you with your luggage; whatever it takes to make sure your stay with us is pleasant and comfortable!  SEE OUR RATES

Both hostels are centrally located within one block of each other in quaint downtown Flagstaff, where you'll find plenty of nightlife, shopping, eateries and town square. We offer FREE transport to and from the Greyhound terminal, and both hostels are just minutes from the Amtrak station (although the train station is nearby, the city of Flagstaff recently passed a new ordinance and there are  NO MORE TRAIN HORNS to interrrupt your sleep!) Our cozy, relaxing common areas and sparkling clean facilities, are sure to make you feel at "HOME AWAY FROM HOME!" Plan to stay several nights in Flagstaff; catch up on your laundry and email, write postcards in one of our sunny sitting areas, or explore charming downtown Flagstaff.

Start your morning with our FREE hearty breakfast, and you'll be ready to embark on your days' adventures. You may choose to join one of our awesome tours to the Grand Canyon, or make your own plans for a day trip to an Indian ruin, Sedona or other National Park. Make Flagstaff your home base; explore the region by day and "come home" to one of our hostels at night. There's plenty to do in the area, see for yourself! Click to see a regional map!



The Grand Canyon International Hostel offers a more subdued environment than the DuBeau; that's not to say it's boring, we promise! Located in a charming, historic building, its southwestern decor, wood floors and unique artwork make this hostel a one of a kind. OurTV lounge is open 24 hours, and FREE coffee and tea are always available. Four person dorm rooms, and quaint private rooms on the upper floor, offer a more intimate experience for our guests. This place is cozy and comfortable, just like home! See what other guests have to say about us...

All Grand Canyon Hostel guests are welcome to visit the DuBeau hostel. Come on over and, choose a tune on the jukebox, or chat with other travelers. It's an easy 5 minute walk where you'll always find a friendly face!


"GET YOUR KICKS" at The DuBeau Route 66 International Hostel. This fun and festive place is the perfect spot to meet new friends and share travel stories. The hostel is located in an historic building in downtown Flagstaff, and was originally adjacent to historic " Route 66". It is surrounded by lively pubs and restaurants and just minutes away from the town center.

The 1950's decor is reminiscent of the days when Elvis Presley and Marylyn Monroe were American heros, and drag racing and diners were "cool"! The facility has been remodeled with a sporty new look, yet it still has the charm and ambiance of an historic Route 66 Motel. There are bathrooms in every guest room, and a comfortable lounge area with an old fashioned jukebox, free WI FI, and a complimentary house computer.

Our hostel car, "PINKY", is a classic American made 1963 "Mercury Monterey", with a chrome dashboard and two-tone pink exterior. You're welcome to check it out and have your picture taken in it if you want! The DuBeau hostel is the perfect place for those travelers who are looking for a bit more action.

We look forward to seeing you in Flagstaff!
