The hostel is located in a old school and medical centre conveniently located in Kanab. Stopped between visiting the Vermilion Cliffs and Zion. You can easily walk or drive to stores and restaurants a few blocks away in town. Quiet neighborhood, but with anything you need. Hostel has lots of facilities - multiple bathrooms, showers, and kitchens. Also laundry facilities, a craft room, and TV area. Staff and visitors are both pretty friendly, but will leave you if you don't feel like chatting.

Great location, very pleasant volunteer staff -young people from all over the world. Beds have rails at the foot, so if you are taller than 5‘9“, plan to sleep with your legs curled up! And only one sink and 2 toilets per hallway. Later in the season, when it’s busy, this could be. challenging. Breakfast is Cold cereal and bagels. They do have a fire pit, which is great! Run by a retired Mormon couple, Who have put their heart into rehabilitating this old hospital/school.

The Cowboy Bunkhouse was my favorite hostel I've ever stayed in! The staff was incredibly kind, the place was enormous and always clean, and the amenities were great. They let me keep stuff in their storage room, gave me free produce from the garden and even gave me good recommendations for back country camping! I would highly recommend staying here.
