This is one of the nicest hostels I have heard about. It is extremely clean and actually has a rule about not letting locals use the location for long term cheap stay. This meant the ambiance of a hostel remained and people were from all over the country and the world. I would definitely stay here again and met new traveling friends. It is small but very cozy none the less. The staff was pleasant and the young man with the blond beard and long hair went out of his way to socialize w us :)

Great staff! Everyone is constantly cooking and having meals together. I thought it was really cool that they have a ton of art supplies and guitars to mess around with. The sense of community was perfect. Very fun place to visit.

Had an absolutely great time in this hostel. The atmosphere with the staff and guests was just GREAT!!! They had different meals each night and you can join in and they had a chef. The public transport in Phoenix is amazing. I got from Greyhound on buses 70 and 17 right to my hostel really quickly and with Phoenix being so big public transport or borrowing a bike from the hostel is the thing to do. All the facilties were good and clean. It was my first time in a co-ed dorm and I had no problem.

Second time we have stayed in 2 years. Love this hostel! Really is like a home away from home. We found it was a great place to relax. Alternatively staff know the ins and outs of Phoenix and extremely friendly and helpful. One of our favourite hostels along our travels.

Very good hostel, my one complaint would be the atmosphere. I went in a quiet period and there were a few older guests. If you want a young travelers hostel this is probably not the place. Very clean, cheap and staff were helpful.

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in!! The moment I entered I felt like being home and welcomed by good old friends! Thanks also to the staff (you are the best :-*) for making me like part of the camel family;-) The amenities were top, cleanliness and your help with bookings/activities is unbeatable!! A must stay for everyone near Phoenix and even a reason to visit Phoenix. Will be back!!

very clean, very friendly staff, painless check in, big common area per person and nice modern kitchen - not cramped; a little out of the way and in an unsafe neighborhood, but you'll likely have a car to get out, and there are streetlights to help protect it

This place is more like a house than a hostel. It felt like I was home with my roommates. Really clean. Staff was really friendly and helpful. No complain at all. I will come back for sure.
