Oak Hostel

Tokyo, Japan

Good location, a 10 minute walk from Ueno station (from which it is easy to go many places). Lots of convenience stores near the hotel. We had a double room for 3 nights, and it suited us (young couple) fine. Room was a bit dated but clean and functional nonetheless. Good wifi connection. For Tokyo, it's good value for money (though compared to the rest of Japan it seems pricey).


Good location, right near the main part of town. We stayed in the mixed dorm. The dorm itself is quite nice, with quite private beds with large curtains for each bed, and there is a small locker supplied for each person, as well as sufficient space in the room to store suitcases. Each bed also had a light, and a powerpoint. The main issue was the wifi, which was very inconsistent and weak. Bathrooms (unisex) were clean and there were alot of showers and toilets.

Green Guest House

Kagoshima, Japan

Got a twin or double private room. The room is set up like a traditional Japanese inn, with bamboo floors and sleeping on mats on the floor. Our room had a nice little balcony and we could see the volcano from it. Shared bathrooms were a bit lacking - only one toilet for our floor, and showers (2) were on another floor - however, we never had to wait. Good wifi connection


Great place to stay in Hiroshima, and the best value for money place we stayed whilst in Japan. We got a private double room. Great location (easy to get to by tram and close to the Hiroshima Peace Park and Museum etc). Clean room with a decent bed and nice bathroom. Good wifi connection. Also, quite cheap. Definitely would stay there again.

Hostel Q

Osaka, Japan

Good location right near Dotonbori. We stayed in a private twin room, which turned out to be bunk beds. The room was an alright size with a lounge as well. There was only one (shared) toilet for our level though, considering there was 4 showers this seemed to be a bit of an imbalance. Good wifi connection, staff pleasant

Pickwick Hall

London, England

Great quiet place in a nice part of London. Not far from several tube stations and the British Museum is just around the corner. Staff were lovely and we got a free upgrade even though we were staying just one night. Rooms are spacious and have nice bathrooms and showers. Having stayed in a few times, this was amazing value and I wish I had found this on previous trips. Nice common room area, but wasn't really a sociable kind of place. Good for people looking for a quiet base to explore from


We got the deluxe room. The bed was huge, but it basically took up the entire room. Good air-conditioning. Wifi was a bit weak. It is hard to find good accommodation cheap in Paris, but of the 3 times I have been there, this has been the best so far. Good location and common areas. The shower requires you to keep pushing the handle to maintain the water flow (like at a beach), but I suggest you bring some small rope/string along to tie it up so you can overcome this. Would stay again

Goodmorning Lisbon Hostel

Lisbon, Portugal

I have stayed at many hostels around the world, and this is probably the best one. Great modern facilities, clean and spacious rooms, open layout in the common areas and fantastic staff. Staff organise regular pub crawls, and also make up free sangria for guests. Close to a train station and a 5/10 minute walk from the sights of central Lisbon. Would definitely stay here again

B&B San Giacomo Venezia

Venice, Italy

Great place for couples. Venice is an expensive city, and this is very good value. We had a private room/shared bathroom. The room was nice and spacious, and there was a fan and air-conditioning. Staff were very nice, and were very willing to help. Not far from the train station, and an easy walk to all the sights in Venice. Would stay again

Hotel Ideal

Naples, Italy

Good location one minute's walk from the train station. Has a really good buffet style breakfast, with ham and eggs as well as cereals, bread, yogurt and coffee. Rooms and bathrooms are nice. Staff are quire helpful too

Comfort Hostel HK

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

I stayed here for 3 weeks whilst doing an internship in Hong Kong. It's in a great location near the train station, with a supermarket across the road. The room was nice and had good wifi. I didn't go to the common area (my room was in a separate building), and don't know much about the atmosphere/social part of the hostel. It's a good base for wanting to do your own thing however. Would stay here again
