    ==STAFF== We have friendly housekeeping staff on site every morning, and we are currently hiring office staff for morning hours. We are also available by phone to answer any questions. ==CAMERAS== The security cameras are for the safety of the guests, because it is a self check-in hostel. Most guests find our property very safe and comfortable. =TESTIMONIALS= feel safe and its in a great place. Marianne V Oregon, USA

  • I did not see another human being the whole 3 days I was there, it was kind of creepy but kind of great cause it was like I had my own house. Everything was super clean and organized and the TV in the rooms was amazing. The beds weren't great and were a little squeaky but I was the only one in my dorm so it didn't really matter. Location was right near downtown near transit and groceries and stuff. This place was great! But don't go hoping to make friends.

  • It is a pretty cool hostel. The beginning of entering here, you might feel confusing about check in system, but it is easy to use. Everything is good except for noisy beds.

  • Main complaint: plastic utensils were gross and unsanitary. People are washing them and putting them back in their caddy. Some were oily and not clean. Also the heat was on even though it was 80 degrees during the day. I called to complain, was told it would be turned down, and no change occurred. Our room was sweltering at night. Poor lighting in the room. Had to use a headlamp to read.

    ==UTENSILS== Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will have our staff check the utensils and make sure they are clean. ==HEAT== We turn the radiant heating up as the weather gets colder. The heating system is for multiple rooms, so it is difficult to adjust the temp for one single room, but we do try to accommodate. ==TESTIMONIALS== ...the place was clean every single day; bathrooms kitchen, all the areas clean all the time, Adrian A Chile

  • Best hostel in SLC! This place was comfortable and felt safe. A lot of the negative reviews I see here are due to the absence of staff. But the truth is, that is the procedure of the place. There are no staff consistently present, no front desk. I can see how some might not like this, but it's not done out of laziness. The system is entirely automated. The showers are clean and so are the bedrooms. It's located right next to a tram station so it's easy to get around town.

  • Overall, my experience at Camelot was pretty positive. I was very impressed by the check in/check out was very hassle free and easy to understand. The facility itself was very clean and well kept. I didn't care for the area much, was a little bit ghetto. Also, The parking situation for guests was kind of hard to understand. There was mention of a gravel lot nearby but it wasn't clearly marked for Camelot least not that I saw.

    Thank you very much for praising our check-in system and cleanliness. ==PARKING== The parking lot is directly adjacent to the building, right off of 800South. ==TESTIMONIALS== ...The area seemed pretty safe, and there is enough parking for your car if you're on a road trip. Brian D Illinois, USA ...Very safe area, and the building is secure. Joey S England, UK
