In short: small is beautiful. This is the most tightly packed place I've ever been to, but it all works like a charm. It has a great atmosphere and is very conducive to hanging out with fellow travelers. Mind you, it's not a quiet place. The showers/toilets could use some rework to eliminate water spills, but beside that the facilities are fine. The lockers are surprisingly spacious despite their small doors. MTR station entrance is right at the doorstep and the harbor a few hundred meters away.

Harbour Hostel Stykkishólmur, Stykkisholmur, Iceland
8.3
2nd Jun 2015

My only gripe with Harbour Hostel are the showers. While I don't mind the bare concrete, I could live with all the rust stains, but for heaven's sake, guys, invest the 10EUR to get a couple of hooks so your guests could have somewhere to hang their clothes while showering. Unless of course you want them to be running around the hostel clad only in towels. ;-) Other than that, it's all wonderful. The staff are lovely, the rooms are clean, and the view out the windows is beautiful.

Bus Hostel Reykjavik, Reykjavik, Iceland
8.6
1st Jun 2015

While there isn't anything extraordinary about BUS, it's clean enough and well located enough to be a good choice for someone wanting just a place to spend the night in Reykjavik. Especially so if you plan to get off the bus at BSI terminal in the middle of the night -- it's just a short walk away and checking in at, say, 1:00am isn't a problem. This was my second stay there, so I guess this fact in itself should serve as my recommendation of this hostel. :-)

Gion Ryokan Q-beh, Kyoto, Japan
9.4
15th Nov 2014

In short: a cross between a hostel and a capsule-hotel -- a perfect mix in a wonderful location. The common areas are very nice, especially the one on the top floor., showers are clean albeit scarce. Staff are nice and helpful. The capsule-style dorms are brilliant and provide this little bit more of privacy you don't get in a normal dorms. I can highly recommend Q-beh.

Thank you very much for your comment:) Our staff also loves the common room on the 3rd floor, view of the garden and sunset time there is just great:) Arigatou! and hope to see you again soon enough!

Guesthouse Namaste, Kanazawa, Japan
8.9
12th Nov 2014

Namaste may have a little more rules than an average hostel, but I wouldn't hold it against it. After all, this is a guesthouse rather than a hostel. The host, Makoto-san, is a very nice and open person. The guesthouse is located just a short walk from the station, albeit a bit away from the city center (still within walking distance). The facilities are clean, although the showers could use a bit of an overhaul. All in all, I recommend staying at Namaste.

Khaosan Tokyo Kabuki, Tokyo, Japan
9.7
11th Nov 2014

This was my second trip to Japan, the second time I chose to stay in Kabuki, and I wasn't in any way disappointed. This hostel is located very close to a metro station, the facilities are well maintained and very clean, the staff are super-nice, friendly and helpful and the common area is conducive to meeting fellow travelers. In short, Kabuki delivers all I expect from a hostel and I'm certain the next time I visit Tokyo I will stay there too!

DEN's INN, Mount Fuji, Japan
9.1
8th Nov 2014

The location may seem a bit remote, but is in fact EXCELLENT if you're in Kawaguchiko for the views of Mt. Fuji. Lawson's and 7-eleven are just a block away. The rental bikes are a very, very nice bonus. Overall, if I'm ever in Kawaguchiko again, I will definitely stay in DEN's INN.

YMCA Hostel, Auckland, New Zealand

8th Mar 2014

The main advantage of this hostel is its central location. Disadvantages are its enormous size and inadequate kitchen/dining facilities. It's fine if all you're after is a cheap bed, not so much if you want to meet fellow travelers. It has no character whatsoever, but that was to be expected.

View Property Reply

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. Happy you find our Location to be good. In regards the kitchen, we do have a project to renovate and the near future. In terms of fellow traveler just tonight we have about 38 different nationalities staying with us, we do have a more family environment as we are not a party Hostel, I'm sorry if we have not fulfilled your expectations. Kind regards, Andre Vidoto Centre Manager

YHA Rotorua, Rotorua, New Zealand

6th Mar 2014

Like most hostels run by the YHA its size is on the "big" end of scale, the long, dark corridors make it feel somewhat dehumanized. On the plus side it has adequate facilities and nice, professional staff. Oh, the smell or Rotorua in the morning...

Ducks and Drakes, New Plymouth, New Zealand
8.6
2nd Mar 2014

Ducks and Drakes has nice common areas, kitchen and dinning room. The girl at the reception was at first baffled by our request to arrange a late check-in, but in the end it all went smoothly, so no gripes here. The room we got was a bit cramped even for backpacker standards but adequate for a one night stay. One remark for the owners: please add a few coat hooks here and there. It costs next to nothing but makes you guests' life so much easier. In short: not bad, but not extraordinary either.

View Property Reply

Thank you for sharing your impressions of your stay at Ducks & Drakes - I have checked our records and see you stayed in one of 3 bed share rooms - there are 4 coat-hooks on the back of the door - I am sorry you didn't spot them during your stay. I am pleased to hear that you liked our common areas, kitchen and dining room - the dining room with its long table is a popular spot for our guests to not only eat but to get to know each other.. Thank you for staying - Enjoy the rest of your travels

If you're not intimidated by the size of this hostel you may find it's actually a nice place. It might not by cozy, but it has all the facilities you need and is really clean. Not a home away from home, but definitely a good choice for a no-thrills one-night stay.

Noah's Ark Backpackers, Greymouth, New Zealand
8.3
27th Feb 2014

Noah's Ark is a nice, well located hostel. While we were there it was almost empty which gave an eerie atmosphere to this place. But it has a whimsical, clearly defined theme, friendly staff and enough common spaces so I'm sure it must be a great place to hang out when there's more folk around. I put "average" in the "Facilities" score for one reason: guys, please, re-think the bathroom facilities! You have an adequate number of toilets and showers, but you're too short on washbasins...

YHA Wanaka Purple Cow, Wanaka, New Zealand
9.4
25th Feb 2014

Purple cow seems huge at first but we got one of the cottage rooms at the back. A well equipped kitchen, a (smallish) bathroom and a dinning area shared between just two rooms - excellent! Staff was friendly and helpful, too. Overall a very nice place to stay.

5footway.inn Project Bugis, Singapore, Singapore

7th Feb 2013

Overall, we had a great stay at Project Bugis. Good location, good atmosphere, great staff. Facilities are good if you don't mind bare concrete floors and no window in the room (I wouldn't hold it against this hostel, as it is a de facto standard over there). One thing I would suggest is to move the AC unit to a different place in the room so that it doesn't blow directly onto a bed.

Minsyuku Ikedaya, Hiroshima, Japan
7.0
30th Jul 2011

This isn't really a hostel, more of an affordable-hotel type of place. The upside is you get towels and basic hygiene accessories, the downside - you don't get to mingle with other guests. Good location, just outside peace memorial park. There is no 'fun' factor to this hotel, it's just a place to take a shower and spend a night or two. Overall it's OK. There is nothing that would make me either recommend it, or discourage anyone from visiting. A bit steep price-wise for a backpacker.
