Great hostel with very helpful staff and a nice relaxed vibe. It's not a crazy party hostel but it's fun. My biggest complaint is that electrical outlets in the dorm rooms are very inconvenient. If you're in the top bunk and you need to charge your phone overnight, good luck. If the person below you has already gone to sleep, you almost have to wake that person up in order to plug in your electronics because the plug doesn't reach far at all. But, it's clean, friendly and close to transit.

Hey there, we're very glad to hear that you dug our vibe :). THANK YOU also for the tip about the outlets! We're currently adding double-outlets to each bed in our dorms (to accommodate a reading light + cell phone) - sounds like yours will be next in line for renovation. Thanks for your review, and happy travelling!

Lucky Lake Hostel

Amsterdam, Netherlands
100%

This is really a fantastic hostel. I'm older than most people who stay here but there are some others in their 30's. The hostel is within a few minutes bike ride away from some beautiful countryside and villages and it's a five minute walk to the lake. The staff is really happy, friendly and upbeat and visitors appreciate it. The facilities are great but one mixed dorm is way too small. This hostel is based on such a creative idea and it's original in every way. I'd happily stay here again!

We're glad that you like Lucky Lake and the surroundings. One of the dorms is not as big as the others, luckily we had room in another dorm and could give you some more private space. Thanks for leaving this beautiful review and we'll see you soon!

This is an excellent hostel that's very clean, stylish and modern. Jan runs the place and he's great at giving people tips on how to see the city and also on how to see nearby Rotterdam. You get an excellent full color map of The Hague showing where the best coffee shops, ice cream, food, and drinkng locations are. There is an excellent kitchen, bright bathrooms, and a relaxing outdoor seating. People at the hostel have a good time but it's not a 24 hour party hostel. I'd stay here again!

This hostel was fairly good. My biggest complaints are that there is no way to lock up your things in the room and the cost, which is typically expensive with this being Europe. The location isn't that close to mass transit as otters had described but it's close enough. It's an interesting neighborhood distant from the touristy parts so the city. The neighborhood has many immigrants and many some interesting ethnic food joints. The hostel bar is good with good music and nice service.

This is the best hostel to stay at in JoBurg. The hostel is surrounded by some really nice neighborhoods in one direction but a really rough neighborhood in the other direction. It's near convenience stores and mass transit, but the mass transit can be confusing so ask the staff about it. The gardens and outdoor patio at the hostel are fantastic and everything is very clean. Only big complaint: one of the showers is very slippery and I took a nasty spill even with the rubber mat.

Thank you for being the best guest. We are sorry about the nasty spill. We will take care of the mat problem. Patience

This is a great hostel and I highly recommend it if you don't mind staying about an hour's train ride outside of central Cape Town. Muizenberg is a cute, beautiful beach town with friendly people. The hostel manager is very friendly and hardworking but he is prone to blatantly offending Americans with his T-shirt of the American flag burning. He proudly declares to Americans, "Your flag is burning." Even with this, I enjoyed my stay and found the nearby historical sites very interesting.

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We enjoyed hosting you! Regarding the T-shirt: Although we have staff T-shirts, they sometimes wear there own. We are sorry that it (and he) offended you, particularly as he actually loves all things' America' and dreams of going there. He was even given the shirt by our first American guests. To our knowledge, none of our American guests have responded negatively to it, but your feedback is appreciated and noted. Apologies once again.

Great hostel with fascinating people. It's not a party hostel but people have a good time. The staff is friendly and helpful. The kitchen is excellent and the beds are comfortable. However, there's practically nowhere where you can plug in your electronics in the bathrooms. Also, it's right in front of a safe bus stop but there's no clear instructions on their website on how to easily take the excellent MyCiti bus from the airport to the hostel. I took an expensive cab for no reason.


America del Sur Hostel Buenos Aires

Wonderful hostel to stay at and I met a lot of fantastic people. It's easy to meet people here because there are very open and bright common areas and the hostel organizes cool events like tango lessons, steak dinner night, and group tours . The staff are multilingual, very helpful, friendly, and interesting. While the location is very convenient, some guests of the hostel got robbed in this neighborhood during my short stay. It may be that all of BA is just as dangerous as this area. Dunno.


The Trip Hostel

Punta del Este, Uruguay

This was a good hostel but it was not fun at all in the dead of winter off season. Also, my room was very cold and I turned on the heat but some guy who works at the hostel came into my room and turned off the heat in the middle of the night. It was creepy and weird and cheap. The hostel has a beautiful fireplace and the staff is nice enough although their English wasn't that great - maybe it's just because it was off season. I might stay here again but it's not the best hostel.

The staff at this hostel is extremely helpful and very proud to tell people about Montevideo and Uruguay in general. Very convenient location close to both the Old City and the beaches.

Hostel Lao

This was a good hostel but it takes a bit of athletic ability to get onto and off of the top bunk in the dorm rooms because they don't have a ladder for you to climb up or down. That was a pain and you just have to step on the bed of the person below you. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay here and found the place to be very homey and quiet while also located near much of the action. The staff was very energetic, cheery and helpful and I think that was the best feature of this hostel.

This was a fantastic hostel. It's very clean and there's plenty of nice common space to meet people. The facilities like the kitchen and the patio are great. The staff is very friendly and laid back and they were very helpful and fun. I loved staying here and even the breakfast was very good. It's affordable and in a very good location near a lot of fun bars, nightclubs, the university, the subway, the bus lines, parks, international call centers, etc. Book with H Rado!

This is the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The owner of the hostel is super nice, very thoughtful, and very helpful. The breakfast is the best breakfast I've ever had at a hostel, which may not be saying much, but I love the fresh fruit and fresh vegetables. It's in a nice quiet location in a very noisy and congested city. It's like a 8-10 minute walk to the Bangkok Skytrain which makes it so much more convenient than the Khao San Road hostels w/ no pub trans. Udee takes credit card also!
