Only stayed 2 nights but if i'd had more time i'd have stayed longer. The hostel is great compared to the city itself. It's clean, has great character, lovely staff and the comfiest beds i've encountered in 9 months of travel. The breakfast is basic but it's more than most others. It's close by the train line and also the national monument, probably the main thing to see in the city. Really nice place

4 times i have stayed here now and i wouldn't pick anywhere else. I had used a couple others before here but this is the best. It's a lovely hostel with nice staff in a quiet area of town, yet close to everything, BTS, river taxi's, bars, restaurants etc. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms very clean. The people you meet here are a nice bunch as well. definitely be back :)

2nd time staying here, really like the place. It's new, clean, in a nice quiet spot but within walking distance of everything. The staff are excellent. It is low season now so more chance to communicate with the staff and they are really friendly and accommodating. Will use again when i return to SR

Travellers Inn

Mumbai, India

It's a decent enough place and very close to the CST train station which is handy. It could do with a couple more fans in the dorm room. The humidity at night makes it hard to sleep. The staff are really nice and accommodating which is good. Have to sit on stairs or floor for internet usage which is slightly annoying. Decent enough though by Indian standards

Mile Map Hostel

Nice hostel just off a main road in Silom so quiet but in a good location, not far from Patpong or the BTS. They've now included an email on booking with a map which i never got but glad to see they're improving as it can be tricky to find. I stayed longer than i booked and i re-booked to come back again as i enjoyed it here. It's not a party hostel, its definitely more a place to relax and see BKK from without the hassle of drunks everywhere, lovely place :)

I liked my stay here. It was very easy to find right next to the LRT. The staff were friendly and the room was fine. Could do with a better common area but i think that's on the way, there is space for it. For the price its good value money in KL, close to malls and right in the heart of china town also

Nice little guesthouse in Melaka right next to the river. The owner is a really friendly man who sat us down on arrival and told us about the city and gave us a map and talked us through the sights as well as the restaurants etc. The room was a little small for a twin but had air con so all good. The bathrooms are clean and its generally a nice place. Would stay there again

Awesome hostel, probably the best i've stayed in, in 8 months in Asia. The whole place is brilliant and its worth the money for sure. There is a great vibe to the place and the rooms are massive, the beds/pods are great and everything works. The party atmosphere to the hostel is spot on and the rooftop bar a nice way to end a day. Would definitely stay here again, need to book early as it fills up, very popular place right near LRT station. Thank you

Had a good stay in Velkommen. Stayed there again on return to Phnom Penh. It's very clean, pretty much brand new, they have a blend of Cambodian and Western staff making enquiries easy. I would definitely recommend it and would stay there again in a heartbeat. It's also close to absolutely everything in town. Tourist sites, markets, restaurants, nightlife, all a short walk

I loved the hostel itself, the bar/common area is a great spot with live music every night, yet far enough away to sleep if you want. I did have a little issue with the room. It has a basic concrete dusty floor which is a pain. Always dirty feet to take into bed. Also i got bit to hell here, not sure if it was mosquitos or bed bugs but i've not had it before or since. The staff and the food in the bar is terrific and the people very friendly

Brilliant hostel. It's the street next to where all the open buses stop. It's right in the heart of things and walking distance to all tourist spots within the city, including the market, museum and palace. The staff are very friendly and professional. The rooms are spotless, the bathrooms large and well cleaned. There is an open roof bar/common area which is nice. I dont have a bad thing to say about this hostel, they also provided free food at Vietnamese New Year which they didn't have too

Can't fault this place. The rooms are spotless, the huge under bed lockers for your valuables is perfect. The breakfast is fine and the common area very comfortable.

I have recommended here to everyone i've met and would definitely stay again

Has everything you need in a hostel. It's an old hotel so the rooms are a good size, even in the dorms and the bathrooms are proper en suite as you would expect in a hotel. The restaurant serves good food at a cheap price and the breakfast spread is superb. definite value for money. It's far enough from the town to be quiet yet close enough to explore. Good hostel and the staff are lovely !!

I enjoyed my stay in Hanoi Hostel. I ended up spending a week here in total after only booking a couple of nights. The room is what you'd expect, decent enough dorm that's cleaned daily. The staff are brilliant and helped sort our a brilliant tour to Ha Long Bay as well as my Open Bus ticket. They are really friendly, informative not pressuring at all. The free breakfast is a perk and the location is spot on, close to everything. Would definitely use again

So Ho is a really nice place to stay. I stayed there over christmas and rebooked to stay at New Year. The dorms are clean and the staff are helpful. They also did food for the guests free on both christmas and new year which was a ncie touch. Only one problem is they sometimes have a problem with the water or power, may be an area thing, not sure. But for the value of it, its spot on. The tours they operate are good and if you book through them your room rate reduces in cost also. Nice place !

The hostel is in the perfect spot for backpackers, 2 minutes from Khao San Rd yet far enough away to get some sleep. The beds in the mixed dorm are pretty comfortable for dorm standards. The owner is very friendly and helpful should you need to ask any questions. I extended my stay here and on return to Bangkok will definitely stay here again as it is great value for money and close to all the action of Khao San Rd. Thanks

Nice and quite guesthouse. A little bit out of the way so would suit someone wanting total peace and quiet. The private huts and nice but basic. Can get eerie at night when your the only one there. Also no wi-fi which is awkward but not the biggest issue in world. The 2 employees were nice and friendly and one took me out for the day as part of a tour, altho tour price is only for the driver. Have to pay for each attraction. Soon adds up

Only used it as a stopover on way to Bohol, but for the price it's perfect for that. Dorm was fine. Easy enough to find being on mango avenue and the port is walkable from there. Taxi's charge 450-500 from airport, if you pick one up going other way 200 most so if theres a way around not using airport taxi's be my main advice. It's fine for what it is

The dorm rooms are spacious and the location in the middle of Malate is good for exploring Manila. I enjoyed it that much when passing through Manila again i stayed there, plus i will stay there again before i leave Philippines. Really nice staff make it a perfect place in Manila to stay

Perfect for an airport run whether just arrived late or leaving early. In a nice quiet neighbourhood and its a very new and lovely house. They offer shuttle runs pretty cheap from 5:30am so early to catch the first flights. The dorm room was massive and i was the only one there. En suite was nicest i've seen in a hostel/guest house. Never got to take advantage of the breakfast as i left early but its available. Perfect place to stay near the airport. Would use again

It's a good hostel in a perfect spot for exploring Suwon, right in the heart near Hwaseong Fortress and close to all amenities, just a short taxi ride from either the train/subway/express bus stations. The hostel was quiet when i was there, only downside being not too many other travellers. The owner is nice but seems to be the only person on the door, so when he's not about anyone can walk in, although it seems safe enough. The rooms were good and facilities excellent. Would recommend !!

Old hotel turned hostel on the top floor so all the rooms are very large with en-suite and good facilities. Communal area on the 6th floor is a great addition. Views to Tian'anmen square and over the south part of the city. The location is perfect, just a couple minutes walk from Mao's Mausoleum. Staff answered any queries i had and probably the most secure hostel i've stayed in. Very clean and good value for Beijing. Close to plenty of hutongs.

Only stayed 3/6 days here due to being asked to leave after i was robbed whilst moving rooms. Had 2 nights in the roof top hut, that is the staff room and not the dorm i booked, before i was moved. I was re-imbursed i must add after a long process but told to checkout at same time. The girls on reception and the bar are really nice and friendly i must add, just one rogue ruined it for me. As long as you get an actual dorm or room it would be a nice place to stay. Location is ok, near to line 2.

Had a lovely stay in this hostel. It is pretty easy to find from the Bell Tower, just a 5 min walk. It is sign posted from 150 yards away on the main south street so that's handy. The place itself is well laid out, has very good communal areas including restaurant and a bar. The only issue was the tour to the Terracotta Army, it was a bit long winded and takes you places you don't need to go before the Army themselves. Would recommend and definitely stay again should i be in Xi'an. Thanks
