Diamond Diggers Backpackers

Johannesburg, South Africa

It's a hidden hostel that doesnt look like a hostel. The facilities are good, but it's far from downtown and staff try to make you buy some very expensive tours saying that the city is very dangerous to use other ways. Indeed you have problems of security in Joburg, but it looks like apartheid still is going on.

Hilo Bay Hostel

Hilo, USA

The hostel is nice, but has a poor atmosphere, everything dies at 10pm ( this is the why many old people like to stay there). You can't invite anybody to visit you, even in the lobby (when I did, they were kicked out disrespectfully by a staff member called Glenda). When I first asked some information by email about things to do in the island, the answer was "buy a guide". Unfortunately, is the best choice if you want to stay downtown in Hilo.
