Backpackers Garden Hostel

Vientiane, Laos

Though at 49 I'm older than the average hostel client, I had a great time at Sihome, enjoying the friendly laid-back atmosphere and met lots of nice people with whom to exchange travel tips. The lounge is really nice to hang out and have breakfast, which is included in the amazingly low rates and was served by smiling Rob! Only drawbacks were the bathroom situation with none on the upper floor of the outside dorms and the (sadly common) lack of a few hooks on the walls for coats, towels etc.

Cape Town Backpackers

Cape Town, South Africa

My stay was pleasant, nice laid-back atmosphere, cozy communal facilities and friendly staff! Breakfast is available paying extra, but good. Location is great w many restaurants&bars around the corner and downtown walking distance! Cons: I found 160 R a bit pricey for a 6 bed dorm, the showers could be in better shape and need more hooks to hang up your stuff, the lockers in the rooms are too small for a laptop and the communal kitchen is a bit abandoned on the lower floor. Would return anyway!
