Motel DuBeau Travelers Inn & Hostel




The Review

If you require a cheap, clean, and safe place to stay for the night, then the DuBeau Hostel is a worthwhile choice. It doesn't have the super friendly atmosphere that some other hostels achieve, so if you are looking for ambient surroundings, or are planning a longer stay in Flagstaff, then you might want to look elsewhere – check out their larger sister hostel up the road.

DuBeau is conveniently located minutes from the Amtrak train station, and the heart of old-town Flagstaff is just a few streets away. Bring your earplugs – the trains are relentless! If you are on a really tight budget, you can discount your room rate in return for a few hours work. The hostel runs tours to both Sedona and the Grand Canyon, which are excellent value for money. Call ahead to check the scheduled tour is operating.

Breakfast is free, and the rooms are in a good condition, although some of the locks need to be replaced. There is a central kitchen and lounge/games room. Private rooms are available. Contrary to claims on their website, not all dorms have bathrooms – apparently these smaller dorms house the overflow during busy periods. Fair enough, but a mirror in the room would have been appreciated.

All things considered, if your priorities in a hostel are convenience, cleanliness and safety then DuBeau is more than adequate. Enjoy your stay!

Exceeded my expectations!
Recently used the Dubeau Hostel as my base for a five day visit to Arizona. Having never stayed at a hostel before I wasn't sure what to expect.I must say it exceeded my expectations completely! All the comforts of home, amazing staff a good location. Even a guided tour below the Rim at Grand Canyon by Louie, Awesome! Will certainly consider returning there someday for a trip all the way to the bottom of the Canyon. Thanks again everyone for your hospitality!!

I worked in the National Forest 2 hours outside of Flagstaff and came to this hostel (as well as the Grand Canyon Hostel) on my weekend breaks every two weeks. The staff are amazing! They are always friendly and helpful! They even have bought kegs multiple times for the hostel guests. The hostel itself is very clean and well kept. There are two full sized kitchens stocked with ingredients, utensils and pots and pans, which is wonderful. Also the location can't be beat. It is very close to all the bars and good restaurants. I love this hostel and am sorry I no longer work near it.
Way back when!
Stayed here with my Mum (Gina) after losing Dad way back in 1993? thought I'd surprise Heather a close friend who worked at DuBeau at the time. The surprise visit fell flat on it's face as she was in Chicago visiting family! Well, the whole stay was like being with a new adopted family and the day trips more than I thought they'd be for such a cheap fee. Still have fond memories and hope to visit again one day.

Amazing Energy!
This is quite possibly my favorite hostel anywhere in the world. I have done significant travelling around Europe and the people, place and energy is amazing here. I absolutely loved my stay at the DuBeau so much i didn't want to leave. the GC hostel (there sister hostel) is also amazing!! and the staff is great!
  I have stayed a many hostels around America and this is one of the best I have been to due to the fact that it was cheaper, gave you free breakfast, a pool table, foozball, and was very close to the train station. They also will pick you up and drop you off at the Greyhound station if you need. They offered very cheap and in depth tours of Sedona and the Grand Canyon, which were excellent. The rooms were clean and were not very packed out when I was there. There is parking if you have a car. Flagstaff is a fun little town and the Hostel in in the Hub of it all. There is a bathroom in every room and each dorm room houses eight people. It was close to the train line so you will hear the train!
  Well, staying here depends on your personality. If you're the introverted type that likes peace and quiet, you may not like it here. But if you're a party animal, this hostel is tailor-made for party animals. Yes, it can get wild, but you can also learn so much from interacting with all the other cultures there. The hostel itself is quite nice. No bugs and very clean.
  Great location near downtown Flagstaff. The train going past can get noisy, but the dorms have en suite bathrooms and even their own little fridges. Staff are fantastic and go out of their way to be accommodating. The tours organized and run by the hostel are good value for money and Michael, one of the tour guides, is knowledgeable about flora and fauna and the geology. I had a wonderful time, thanks, guys!
  Very nice hostel, with friendly and helpful staff. Great location in downtown Flagstaff. However be sure to bring your earplugs, as the hostel is about a block from a busy railroad line.
