Welcome to our hostel

Located in the heart of the city, The Metcalf House Hostel is a short distance from the airport, bus and train stations, and within walking distance of downtown, parks, museums, and shopping centres.

We offer a free breakfast, free street parking, kitchen and laundry facilities. As we are a desert hostel we have our front and back yard areas which planted with desert cactus, aloes and shrubs.

As Arizona's capital city, Phoenix has much to offer. The Desert Botanical Gardens at Papago Park features Sonoran Desert plant life. Visit the Heard Museum, renowned for Native American exhibits. Arizona has more Indian reservations than any other state. There are many inexpensive cinemas and clubs featuring blues music. Food Markets are a 12 minute walk. Hike the mountain parks in Phoenix and in summer clear rivers provide cool respite.

It's a very friendly hostel. It's quite small, so you really get to know to the other guests as well as the staff. The accomadation is quite simple, although fair enough. And the price is also low. Breakfast is ok (coffee, tea, toast, pancakes and egg). I only wish I could have butter instead of this spread that is offered. But it seems to be the same in all US hostels.

Great little house converted to hostel. There is a large kitchen, spacious fridge, breakfast is provided. The staff are all super friendly and very helpful if you need help on what to explore. The rooms are clean and tidy. They hold social events so we had a meal around the community table in the lounge. Great place thanks!

1. When I left Phoenix Hostel on Nov 11 and waited at a nearby bus stop, I encountered a gun threat robbery, I escaped from it and found my way back to the hostel. Manager Keith Stephens helped me call the police and the local police came soon saved me from further danger. Paragraph limited I couldn't tell the detailed story. This hostel is located in a dangerous area but I feel grateful for the excellent action the hostel staff did for me. 2. My watch was stolen by roommate while staying there

HI - Phoenix Metcalf House lives up to its award-winning reputation. Friendly, clean, well-organized, great staff, comfy indoor and outdoor common areas and a good breakfast all add up to a great stay. Located conveniently to the arts district, downtown PHX, and bus and light-rail transportation to the rest of the city. Bunk beds are solid, several with a fan and a battery-powered LED light (very helpful). Suggestions: make them available at all beds, and rotate out mattresses with poky springs.
