Get to Know HI Phoenix, the Metcalf House Hostel

Located in downtown Phoenix, HI Metcalf Phoenix is the only “Desert Hostel” within the Hostelling International organization. Our front and back yard areas, planted with desert cactus, aloes and shrubs that thrive in the arid desert climate offer a respite from the rush of the city and the wear of the road. We like communal meals, good conversation, artists, musicians, and great travel stories. Our hostel activities are spontaneous, happening when staff and guest ideas and energy come together to create beautiful and unique events. We have impromptu dinner nights, BBQs, music jams, art nights, hikes and more!

The hostel is walking distance to Downtown Phoenix, museums, shops and supermarkets. In the Greater Phoenix area, you can hike Camelback Mountain and South Mountain Park, or visit the fantastic Musical Instrument Museum and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West.
