Ocean Walk Inn

Sihanoukville, Cambodia

Our room didn't have a window and got really hot at times even with the fan on. It was close to the beach though and was cheap so if its only for a few nights and you're on a budget this is a good place.

Here Be Dragons

Battambang, Cambodia

Really great place to stay. Staff were endlessly helpful. Room was clean and well maintained

Som Guesthouse

Phuket, Thailand

Very nice hostel. Was able to arrange an airport shuttle, the owner took us in his nice new Chevy. Tv was a bonus since it rained most of the time we were there.

Golden Hill Bungalows

Koh Phi Phi, Thailand

The sounds carries to the hostel from town but I doubt there is any place on the island in which it doesn't! Bit of a way out of town. There is also a massive hill to climb to actually reach the rooms. They seemed to be having building works done. Hostel was cleanish. Phi phi is a bit expensive for accom. For a few nights this will do.

Chill Out House

Koh Lanta, Thailand

Really close to beach and nice cheap places to eat. Left my purse there and got on the boat to phi phi and they were very helpful in getting it back to me!

Urban Guesthouse

Koh Samui, Thailand

Staff were v friendly. Not far from the beach. Little bit of building work outside but it wasn't a problem.

The Backyard Inn

Rotorua, New Zealand

Slightly out of town but wasn't a problem as we were given a lift from the bus station. Staff were v friendly and helpful. Hostel was clean and pretty quiet at this time of year. The thermal pool was awesome and it was nice to not have to sleep in bunk beds. Room was warm.

Great hostel, very very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was nice and warm. Kitchen very well equipped. Only disadvantages were that the room didnt have much storage space and was a little far out of town. Would definitely stay again though.

Nomads Fat Camel Hostel

Auckland, New Zealand

Great location, helpful staff, really nice free snack meal and liked the apartment style layout. However bed s were very thin, bathrooms needed a good clean and kitchen was pretty basic. Also didnt seem to change duvet covers when guests checked out.

Base Auckland

Auckland, New Zealand

Very friendly staff and the hostel was clean. Great location. Airport shuttle dropped us at the door. Good $3 drinks offers downstairs too. Only disadvantage was the showers which you had press the button every time you wanted water and the room didnt have much storage. Lockers under beds were dusty.

Hi Emma, Great to hear your feedback, and just wanted to update you that I'm actually in the process of replacing all the press button showers with normal mixer showers over the next few months. I am also going to check those lockers in your room for dust! Hopefully we get to see you again soon. Kind Regards, Amanda


Whilst the hostel was in a great location and was relatively cheap it wasn't as clean as it could have been. There was a rather nasty looking stain on the wall next to my bed and the only cleaning that seemed to be done in the room was the removal of the bins. The kitchen was always very busy around mealtimes and for breakfast in the morning there was a shortage of bowls. You also had to hire a mug, which seemed odd. The other people at the hostel didnt seem want to talk.
