I stayed in the Nomads Fat Camel for a couple of weeks and i could not fault one aspect of my visit. Ideally located right beside the centre of Auckland, Queen Street, Nomads Fat Camel can cater to every need of the backpacker/ holidaymaker. I stayed in a 8 bed dorm and this gave me the opportunity to meet other people from all different destinations. Although the hostel building itself is quite old this does not hold the hostel back in any respect. Showers and toilets are cleaned to high standard numerous times daily. Each floor has 2 kitchens with cookers , kettles, fridges and microwaves. Most other hostels I have stayed in have 1 big kitchen between everyone which can get congested and sometimes be difficult to get in and cook when u need to. The hostel also has the Camel bar which provides a free snack meal each night and plenty of entertainment including beer pong, killer pool and my own favourite Jumbo Jenga (which I was champion of 2 weeks running). They also have a live DJ at weekends and a live music. The best part of my stay was meeting the staff. At anytime day or night they are there to help ( including one time when after a shower I was locked out of my dorm in nothing but a towel). The travel shop where also very helpful when they booked a room in a hostel on my behalf for my next destination. For a backpacker this hostel ticks all the boxes, great fun staff, clean and safe environment and a central location. Not the Ritz or the Plaza but who wants to stay in either of those places anyway.
