Phoenix is a great place to start exploring the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert. Phoenix is the capital of Arizona and is located east of Los Angeles, California. Arizona State University adds a youthful atmosphere to the city, with an enrollment of more than seventy thousand students, making it the largest public university in the United States. The city also has a large Hispanic population and is known for great Mexican food!
There are few hostels in Phoenix, so don’t just assume you’ll be able to find a place to stay. Make sure you contact a hostel in Phoenix before you arrive. Things to do are spread out over a large metropolitan area, so if you’re not driving, the Valley Metro provides bus service throughout Phoenix. You can explore the trails on foot or on horseback. There are gorgeous hiking trails at Camelback Mountain, the pueblo ruins at Pueblo Grande, and Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Several stables provide opportunities for horseback riding. For something different, you can take a hot-air balloon ride over the city. Phoenix is also a popular place to begin a Grand Canyon tour.
Like in Las Vegas, during the summer season, you can enjoy a poolside party at local bars and hotels. The best nightlife area is downtown in neighboring Scottsdale, which has been compared to South Beach, Florida. There you’ll find posh cocktail lounges and lavish nightclubs filled with hip young crowds. The Downtown Trolley can take you around the area. Just make sure you don’t get dehydrated on your way back from partying, because the temperatures in the area are often over a hundred degrees.

Phoenix Travel Tips & Suggestions
Phoenix is looking way better from last, the only downturn I noticed is when I looked at an almanac it said its population grew by more than a million! But they added a light rail kind of like trolleys in San Francisco, and I'm liking what's happening.
The best I can say about Phoenix is that I left.
Phoenix is different but good!

Phoenix is a craphole. There are homeless people everywhere you turn and the bus system is bad!
Phoenix area is a place where there is lots to see and to do. The bus system is not so great but it brings you everywhere you need to go -- you only have to have time because they take forever.
If you're coming to Phoenix, try to be here during the first Friday of the month. There is an "art walk" where all the galleries downtown open for free and you can drink booze in the street. There is also usually lots of cool live music going on.
Phoenix is great for those who like sunshine. People are friendly, and the food is great.
The bus station is very near the airport just west of downtown. The Amtrak however pulls up to a spitoon in the middle of a tiny Native American reserve town half-an-hour out of town. This year in Late September, it's still over 100 degrees F every day. Tempe is probably a more interesting place for 20 somethings to hang out. Phoenix metro is very spread out but there are good desert hikes sprinkled throughout the neighborhoods. Just look for big hills and you're likely to find a trailhead. Phoenix is a hotbed for bar culture and you'll not be want for great happening friendly venues no matter your persuasion. September is also a good time to hit town and score a resort job. Apartments are cheap (compared to LA NY or SF for instance) and roomate situations are plenty. Aparently the one available hostel begs an alternative. If you have a car the 'burbs have $2-$3 second run movie houses. Some communities have cheap-to-get-in community pools but they may not be open all year 'round. Scottsdale has an amazing park system, many with wet amenities for $2/day. If you're bold or just bored, drive to one of the many high-end resorts, tell the gate you're going to Human Resources, park in self-parking and find a spot to relax in. There you can have air conditioning in a comfy chair or a lounger by the palm canopied pool and all for FREE :)
