Safe. Very clean. Friendly staff. Would recommend to stay there for sure. Thank you for a pleasant stay, which made my trip enjoyable.
Clean and convenient location, friendly people
I'll Be Back Next Year For Sure, For The Phoenix Highland Games Competitions In March!
Fun, Clean Hostel!
Stayed here for 3 nights and have no complaints! Very clean, staff love to hang out with guests and are great with advice on things to do. Hostel is a bit of a walk (or bus) from the light rail line, but very easy to find, and the atmosphere and value are great. I had no problems checking in at 1am after a flight, given my email in advance to them. Would recommend this hostel for sure!
Camel Backpackers Hostel is located in a well-off, residential neighborhood of Phoenix, ensuring a calm surrounding but without being too far from downtown.
As this is a residential neighborhood, there are free parking spots right in front of the hostel. There are buses nearby that will take you to the city centre in about ten minutes. Restaurants, convenience stores, and a variety of shops are present within walking distance.
Rooms and Bathrooms
This is not your typical hostel. There are only two dorms and a private room, making for a very homey atmosphere, which is something regular travelers appreciate. Things don't get crowded but it's still very social -- you can easily meet and chat with other people staying at the hostel in the common living/dining room and also outdoors.
All bathrooms are shared (even for the private room) but kept impeccably throughout the day. There are two bathrooms in total -- one inside one of the dorms and another one in the corridor, to be easily accessed from the other dorm and the private room.
Breakfast is simple but really nice and quite healthy. It's "do-it-yourself" style and you can help yourself to bread (white and brown), Nutella, peanut butter, cereal, milk, juice, tea, coffee, and -- the best part -- a good variety of fruits (kudos for the nice mangoes!). There's a kitchen where you can prepare other meals and it is extremely well equipped -- better than most average hostels. There's even baking accessories and pretty much anything else you might need. A bunch of spices and oils are available for free. There's free tea and coffee twenty-four/seven too.
In the evenings, it's common to see travelers and staff hanging out. There is a BBQ area outside for when the weather allows. Otherwise, there is plenty indoors to keep you entertained -- TV and movies (Netflix and DVDs), a couple of guitars, books, and canvas and materials to make paintings to be later used as decoration all over the hostel. Activities outside the hostel are also organized -- pub crawls are a popular one. Just check the weekly schedule of things to do by the entrance!
The team working at Camel Backpackers is helpful and very cool -- they're easy to talk to, they'll be happy to suggest things around town, and are generally interesting to hang out with too!
Great hostel, cleanest I've ever stayed in. A little bit out of the way but other then that very accommodating!
Don't stay anywhere else!
I booked one night at Camel Backpackers and ended up staying over two weeks and not wanting to leave. The hostel is meticulously clean and has amazing facilities, and the people you meet (including staff) are lovely, welcoming and most of all FUN! The hostel is always super clean, the bunks are really comfortable with no squeaking at all, the bathrooms are like a hotel rather than a hostel and the kitchen and lounge area has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay including games, books, musical instruments and wii. The hostel has multiple power outlets in lounge areas and also near every bed, they also have a personal light and fan for every bed (which is very important in my books) Staff are always around to give you tips on where to go and what to do in Phoenix, if you're over 21 there are always people happy to have a beer with you and it's also really well set up to meet other travelers and generally just have a good time. I highly recommend staying here!
good cheap hostel which every thing have to feel like at home. The whole house are clean and the people are so nice and friendly. If you search a cheap good please to sleep in phoenix, you should go to camel backpackers hostel.
