Pros: Good location, easy to meet different people, great common area. Cons: Multiple roaches in my private room. It is loud and you can hear the music from the bar upstairs. Need to get lucky with the showers, water pressure/hot water is touch and go depending on who else is showering.

I stayed in a private room which was clean. Ronny and his family is really helpful in planning stuff out. Located right in Monteverde, walking distance to restaurants, bus station etc. The common area is a bit lacking compared to other hostels but would still highly recommend this.

Good location. Helpful front desk staff. Spacious bathroom in the dorm and more bathrooms outside. It is loud though. There isn't much separation from the dorm/outside area and it never gets quiet if you are a light sleeper. Also, mosquitoes.

20th Dec 2015

Pros: Great location, helpful front desk staff. Bar on site and spacious common area. Cons: I stayed in the dorm and the ventilation was lacking. The room smelled with everyone's clothes etc. The bathroom is *tiny*. There was also renovation going on so if you wanted to take break in the afternoon would have to put with a lot of noise.

Clean, roomy hostel with a great common area. A little further out from the city, close to the University. Can take a bus to get to city center. The front desk staff is very helpful with booking trips etc.

It was an okay hostel, my first one in the Americas. There weren't enough bathrooms for people. It wasn't very clean either. Security was average. Staff is knowledgeable. Prices were definitely high but it was Christmas so they could charge it and get away with it.

Good location if you want to stay in Kuta. No Wifi in room. Locker is too small for backpack. Staff is really friendly but better to book tours from other places. No breakfast. Super close to beach though !

Great breakfast, good location. Staff is a bit stand off-ish. Atmosphere is okay, not easy to meet other solo travelers unless you are in the one dorm room they have.

Long Hostel, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

28th Aug 2014

Best people at the desk, they handle all your travel needs. Everything is priced reasonably. I'm glad the Long family started a hostel, can't recommend it highly enough. Close enough to pub street but not in the middle of the raucous.

Good hostel, clean rooms. Not enough bathrooms for a whole floor and the water in the showers had this metallic smell that just stuck to you. For bus tickets, tours etc they charge more than from a travel agent, so definitely ask around. Great location. Can watch movies on tv with folks, easy to meet other travelers.

Pros - nice atmosphere, great tv room, Wi-Fi inside the rooms, good breakfast Cons - only 3 showers, 2 sinks and 2 toilets for the entire floor (~24 beds). Not close to a whole lot of sightseeing places. Lady at the desk wasn't friendly, not ride either just very business like

11th Aug 2014

Cons - Rooms do not lock. Our bathroom also had a drainage problem, pretty gross of you have to step in 1.5 inches of dirty water. They shut off the AC during the day. Ours stopped working twice and we had to ask to fix it. Our tuktuk driver to the waterfall arranged by the hostel was kinda shady, wouldn't recommend using the hostel, just find your own. Pros - meet a lot of travelers, close to night market, decent breakfast included

Pros - The location for the hostel is great. The staff is super helpful. Breakfast is simple but filling. And as I said, great location ! Cons - The beds are not comfy unless you get lucky with one of the softer mattresses. The bathroom has issues as well but is functional.

First, the bathrooms are outside the room and in the winter the pipes freeze over. Also, the owner (?) recommended expensive balloon tours to us. I knew someone who had a cheaper hot air balloon ride and when I mentioned the company name the owner told us that the balloon company had accidents/is not well organized etc, which was not true at all. My assumption is that he did not work with the company and hence, did not get commission and did not recommend it. Location is fine + good breakfast.

Artemis Hotel, Selcuk, Turkey

Selcuk is a tiny town. Artemis hotel is located at a 1 min walk from the train station. Very easy to find. They have a good spread for breakfast and functional amenities. The owner is really helpful though I think he convinced us into taking a relatively expensive tour vs. traveling alone.
