Marken Gjestehus

Bergen, Norway

Great hostel in Bergen. Rooms were nice with lockable closets. Well located near the train station in Bergen.

Oslo Hostel Central

Oslo, Norway

Great centrally located hostel. Very nice rooms with heated bathroom floors. Great breakfast with ample food selection and freshness. Hostel was expensive, but given the Norwegian prices it was probably about average.


Kathmandu, Nepal

Alobar provides great amenities for the price. Wireless internet is great as is Western toilets and hot showers. The bedrooms could use screens to keep out the mosquitos. My only qualm was the attached travel arrangers definitely ripped us off when trying to arrange transport. I would suggest organizing your own transport to the treks. We heard prices of ~$15-30 from fellow trekkers compared to the almost $100 we paid through the group.

I enjoyed the hostel atmosphere. I wish that the Internet was more reliable. It was difficult to get the vouchers. The hostel was very clean and had a great laid back vibe.

Rock N Bowl Hostel

Bristol, England

The hostel was a lot of fun. There were a lot of great people staying here. I also like getting free breakfast. The hostel is only about a 5 minute walk to the shops on Queen Street.

Brussels 2GO4 Quality Hostel

Brussels, Belgium

It was an okay hostel. I was in the white room and someone snored the whole night so I had a difficult time getting to sleep. I would have liked it if reception was 24 hours and didn't close at lunch during the day.


This was a nice hostel. It seemed to cater to a younger crowd than I am used to. Kai's tour is awesome! The pods are pretty cool as well.


Antwerp, Belgium

This hostel was amazing. The hosts were super friendly and had great tips for things to see and places to eat. The hostel is huge. It isn't quite near city center, but they are near the bike rentals which are a must for Antwerp!

Art Roch Hostel

I really loved this hostel. There are plenty of gathering spaces for travelers to meet one another. All the staff were super friendly.

Inverness Youth Hostel

Inverness, Scotland

The hostel was a little far from the town center. The staff was friendly and always able to answer questions. The hostel lacked a meeting people atmosphere, but if you are looking for a nice place to stay this place is good.
