Skanstulls Hostel

Stockholm, Sweden

Awesome, roomy security boxes right by each bead, with an outlet in every "box". Cool decor and sturdy beds who each have their own bed light. Well equipped kitchen, can get a bit busy in the evening.

YHA Franz Josef

Franz Josef, New Zealand

Felt like a really big hostel. Unfortunately kitchen and common room wasn't big enough though. Had no were to sit in the evening when we wanting to chill and it was raining outside. Otherwise, an okay place.


Queenstown, New Zealand

The dorms were divided in cabins, all with their own kitchen and bathroom. Really liked this, felt like a little village. Also close to nature, away from the hustle of central Queenstown but still just a short walk to town.

Te Anau Lakefront Backpackers

Te Anau, New Zealand

Liked that every dorm had a own kitchen and bathroom and no bunkbeds in our room at least, if you actually wanted to cook and eat in dorm the only place to sit was to go outside our to the main building though. Otherwise, nice stay overall, liked Te Anau.

On Top Backpackers

Dunedin, New Zealand

Our private room was a bit special, like a inverted balcony where on of the walls were completely glass with a slide door. You had the option to pull a sturdy curtain to get some privacy and I didn't mind. Thought the toilets felt really fresh. Otherwise nothing special, a bit small kitchen and common room (in the same room).

Fish Tank Lodge

Kaikoura, New Zealand

Nice location, nice common room, a balcony. Fun fish paintings on the walls. Friendly staff. Overall a good stay, didnt really spent much time at the hostel except sleeping.

The Dwellington

Wellington, New Zealand

Really liked the whole interior of this hostel. Really sturdy and comfortable bunkbeds, fancy kitchen and dining table. Nice.

42b College House Backpackers

Whanganui, New Zealand

Friendliest staff I ever met, got "upgraded" to a big family room since it was free anyway, really nice view in the big garden. Awesome.

Lazy Dog Backpackers

Turangi, New Zealand

Nice laid back atmosphere, best WiFi we ever had on a hostel, liked the common room and kitchen that made you feel at home. Dorms was a little bit crowded and maybe not the best beds, but still a really good stay!

Four Canoes Hostel and Bar

Rotorua, New Zealand

Really liked it! Both dorms and common rooms felt clean and spacious. Got some vouchers from the staff when we went to Te Puia the day after.

Nomads Auckland

Auckland, New Zealand

Hostel felt kind of crowded and a bit filthy. No Internet in the building unless you paid, and even when you did, the connection was unreliable. Did like the big security lockers in the room though, could fit our to big bags in one. But all and all, not for us.

Houseboat Ripple

Amsterdam, Netherlands

It's very nice and open, clean, comfortable, and an outdoor terrace you can use as well. The location isn't the closest to the center, but it's a nice neighborhood and we felt it was kind of nice to get away from the crowds and the noise. The owner is really friendly and will help you with whatever kind of tips you need. There could be nice with locks to the bedroom or some kind of security box in the bedroom, but we left our belongings laying aorund in the room without feeling it was unsafe.


Antwerp, Belgium

Got everything you can expect from a hostel, and really clean nice bedroom with a lot of space even in the 10 people bedroom we slept in. I don't have any complaints really. But I didn't really got that feeling of home, it felt maybe a little hollow and chilly, even though the personnel was nice!

Kabul Backpackers Hostel

Barcelona, Spain

No customer comment


Beautiful view from the hostel, but that also mean that it was quite a long buss ride down to the town since it was located on a hill. Much space in the rooms, a big common room to hang out in, maybe not so fun, but a nice place to stay and we had no problems during our stay.

Hostel Tabor Ljubljana

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Cheap, clean hostel in a good location, but that's about it. Looks like a school and I think our room was some old storage room? So, not so much fun, but still okay. Free Internet time by the computers was nice.

Muffin Hostel

Salzburg, Austria

I don't know if was the people I met, the hostel, or the city, but my stay was amazing. We were there on the hostel's opening day and the guests organized an improvised party in the basement. Even though the bar hadn't open yet everybody was really sociable had a great time. Met so many fun people. The interior design was kind of gray and boring, like an old school, but a really nice big garden.

Wombats City Hostel Berlin

Berlin, Germany

Very fun and enjoyable hostel! Really like the whole interior design. Because of some computer trouble or double booking we got upgraded to a double private with balcony and our own bathroom, can't really complain about that. Also, really nice bar at the roof with cheap beer and drinks!
