New Red River Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

This is a basic but good hostel, close to a tram stop and Galata Tower and about a 10 minute walk to Taksim Square. There's only one toilet, which is the biggest drawback. Breakfast is decent - bread, an egg, some cucumber and tomato and coffee. For Istanbul, it's definitely a good value.

Guest Rooms Edelweiss

Nessebar, Bulgaria

I had a lovely stay at Edelweiss! Although it's not in the old town, it's centrally located on the new side of Nessebar, near everything you could need, and it's just a 10-15 minute walk to all the touristic sites in the old town and the beach. Bojin and his mother are wonderful hosts.

Aurora Hostel Nis

Nis, Serbia

This place is excellent!! Nenad is a great host and the hostel is centrally located and quiet. I love the terrace! If it had a/c and a bigger kitchen it would be perfect.

The Big Hostel

Belgrade, Serbia

The top floor of this hostel is not completely renovated (no wifi, terrible bathrooms, sparse dorms) but the lower floor is quite nice. Definitely request a lower room if you can. The common area has fast wifi and comfortable seating, but no a/c. Staff are fairly helpful, although when I checked out they had no idea about police registration and apparently just don't do it. (btw info about registration:

Villa Stefanija

Subotica, Serbia

A basic hotel that was comfortable for a couple of nights. Located a bit outside the city center, but only a 10-15 minute walk. However, I had some issues because the staff did not register me with Serbian police, which is essential within 24 hours of arriving in the country according to the law. The staff said that they do not register people who stay under 3 nights. Luckily the hotel I stayed in at Novi Sad was able to assist me with this. Make sure you insist on getting registered!

Budget Hostel in Szeged

Szeged, Hungary

Comfortable hostel, nice beds, friendly staff. It is quite far from the city center, but it's actually a pleasant 45 minute walk or a quick bus ride and the area is very quiet and peaceful.

Euro Youth Hostel

Munich, Germany

The only downside to this hostel is that the bathrooms are downstairs, which is a pain sometimes to go up and down all the time (and go through two locked doors), and also the women's bathroom was never really clean. The bar is great and spacious, with 2 euro beer specials for happy hour. There's a good number of staff on hand for the size of the hostel and most of them are friendly and helpful. Good location, right near the bus station and a short walk to the main tourist sites.

Bus Hostel Reykjavik

Reykjavik, Iceland

This hostel is quite nice with a large common area, nice bathrooms and secure rooms. But it is terribly under-staffed and sometimes it's impossible to find someone to help. It's also pretty far from anything interesting - about a 20 minute walk.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you so much for your rating and comments, much appreciated. Our staff are our greatest pride and joy and we are sorry you had problems finding them. We happen to find the geothermal beach, the Pearl, The Öskjuhlíð tracks, Kjarvalsstaðir Museum and the Cathedral to be pretty interesting but I guess each to heir own:) All the best. Love.

Aji Hostel

Santiago, Chile

Wonderful hostel. Comfy beds, hot showers, great free meals. The only major drawbacks are that there is a serious lack of power plugs in the dorms and the hostel can get quite loud at times.

Casa Fischer Hostal

Valparaiso, Chile

Lovely hostel in a great location, hot showers, good wi-fi, lockers and a locked front door. It was nearly empty in July, so a bit quiet, but I imagine when it's full it could be quite fun.

All in Mendoza Monkey Hostel

Mendoza, Argentina

A nice hostel in a very good location, right near the main plaza. Breakfast is better than average with eggs, dulce de leche and juice. The biggest con is the terrible pillows.

7 Duendes

Salta, Argentina

No complaints about 7duendes!! I had a great stay here. Hot showers, nice kitchen, lovely staff. The top bunk is a little too close to the bottom bunk, which is a bit uncomfortable, but I suppose it's too late to change that now.

La Albahaca Hostel

Tilcara, Argentina

A great hostel! Absolutely recommend it. Hot showers, keys for the dorm rooms, lots of blankets for cold nights.

Casona Potosi Hostal

Potosi, Bolivia

This place was tolerable for two nights. The staff are indeed rather surly and give very little helpful information. Laundry is 10 Bs, not 8 Bs per kilo as advertised. There's only one power outlet in the dorm. You need a ticket for breakfast, which nobody tells you. On the good side: hot showers and nice beds, great location.

Quechua Inn

Sucre, Bolivia

I've really enjoyed staying at Quechua Inn. The only things missing are lockers in the dorms and shower curtain / bath mats in the baths. Ricardo is very helpful and friendly and the kitchen is great!

El Curichal Hostel

Rurrenabaque, Bolivia

A great hostel! Comfortable beds, luggage storage, a nice patio and lots of hammocks!

Pariwana Hostel Cusco

Cusco, Peru

Pariwana has very comfortable beds, hot showers, good lockers, and decent WiFi. ...But the hostel is extremely LOUD - the bar plays music which can be heard throughout the whole hostel until 2am and there are people on the patio playing foosball/ping pong at all hours, despite signs saying that post-10pm is "quiet time". The hostel also tends to attract the type of guest that doesn't think twice about walking into a dorm room at midnight, turning on the lights and talking loudly for an hour.

La Casa de Zarela

Huaraz, Peru

I had an amazing time at Case de Zarela! The hostel has amazing outdoor patios with great views of the mountains, the beds are comfortable, the shower is HOT and has great pressure, and the staff are super helpful.

Residencial Munaywasi

Trujillo, Peru

I had a very nice stay at Munay Wasi. The bed was comfortable and security was very good, and the staff very accommodating. The only problem was that the hot water in the showers did not work at all.

Youth Hostel Malka

Lima, Peru

I had a nice stay at Malka. The location was very convenient, right by the Sur del Cruz bus station and most of the embassies, as well as nice restaurants and parks. The owner also very kindly let me check out late because I wasn't sure if I'd be staying an additional night. The only big drawback is that the price I paid for the room was more than was quoted on HostelWorld when I booked - I was told I would only pay $8 and I actually paid $11.
