Fat Camel Sucks Jan 03, 2010
This placed was the worst backpacker I've stayed at in a western country.

First, it was more expensive than ACB (Auckland Central Backpackers) even though our room was less than half the size of our room at ACB. The sheets were unmade and it was obvious someone had slept there the previous night and no one bothered to change the sheets. The bed itself was so old we could feel every single bed spring poking up.

The kitchen and lounge were old and dirty, but that didn't actually bother me. What bothered me was when the shower drain clogged up, flooded the entire floor, and left the floor with only one working toilet.

When the staff came to clean it up, they were being loud and grumpy. Another guest politely asked them to keep it quiet because some people had already gone to sleep for the night, and he ended up getting attitude from the grumpy staff guy.

To sum up: expensive, old, dirty, broken, and rude staff.

I wish I could give a "zero" rating.

Writing this review has brought back memories. I've started posting this review on other websites. Only places that are exceptionally bad deserve that honour.

Fat Camel is an appropriate name - greedy, impersonal hostel that charges for the smallest extras. No window in room, boiling hot with a fan that didn't work. It's run along with a bar and it feels like living in one. Oh, and the staff are useless. Avoid.
