Perfectly positioned, clean and friendly. What more could you ask. Building work was going on within the hotel during our stay, (but we were compensated with a free drink) otherwise an ideal hotel. the staff will efficiently arrange any trips you require around Saigon

Me Mates Villa, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
7.1
22nd Sep 2015

Me Mates Hostel won us over immediately, when they allowed us to check-in at 6am, allowing us to sleep off, and refresh from an overnight bus. It was also very well located for the city centre. Our dorm was basic and scruffy, but overall we were pleased with our stay, and the staff were more than helpful when we had 'problems' with our onward journey

Gloria Angkor Hotel, Siem Reap, Cambodia

This hotel is a fair distance from town, but do provide a free tuk-tuk shuttle into the centre, so this was not a major issue. with a very clean swimming pool and the friendliest, cheeriest staff imaginable, our stay in Siem Reap, and it's amazing attractions, was enhanced by staying at the Gloria Angkor Hotel

The staff were very unhelpful and uninformed, and the room was shabby at best. the room light is also controlled from reception, so on arrival, during the day, we had to sort our luggage out in the dark, but then sleep with a room light on!

Cat Ba Mountain View Guesthouse, Cat Ba Island, Vietnam
5.7
14th Sep 2015

We stayed for 2 nights at Cat Ba Mountain View, and would have probably rated it very highly as we went to sleep on the second night **HOWEVER** On the morning we were leaving we awoke to find, firstly, NO RUNNING WATER, we could not even flush the toilet. On trying to locate a member of staff to inform them of the problem, we found the site COMPLETELY UNATTENDED. Although breakfast is advertised as 'from 7' nobody arrived on site until 7:30. THIS PRESENTS A SERIOUS SECURITY RISK

With the feel of a converted school, it is a functional hostel rather than a place to enjoy. but if that is all you need and have a car (excellent parking facilities) then it is ideal. A long trek into to the city centre though.

A very handy location for the centre of the city, and perfect for a flying visit. For a longer stay I would guess it may lack a little character. I would however recommend it for a city hop.

Cityhostel Berlin, Berlin, Germany
5.4
19th Nov 2014

It was my second stay at cityhostel berlin, and my last. the staff were to busy with each other to serve at the bar or help with requests. whilst hostels need to make money and booking in large school parties is a way to do so, staying in a hostel with at least two very large groups of school children is not a pleasant experience. very disappointing overall, especially considering how much i had enjoyed the hostel 4 years earlier

Prague Center Hostel, Prague, Czech Republic

16th Nov 2014

Our apartment was close enough to walk into Wencleslas Square from with no problem. Once checked-in we did not see any staff in three days, which was how we wanted it. As a two bedroomed apartment, it offered everything we required, although the bathroom facilities we small, and bedside lamps may be a useful addition, but if they are the only negatives I'd say that's a good effort!

Despite the efforts of the manager to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, he was fighting a losing battle. the building itself was very old and tired and the rooms were shabby. the fact that there were only two bathrooms for the whole hostel meant a long wait for a cold shower. the girls in our party found hair drying impossible due to lack of sockets and mirrors

the private rooms are worthy of any mid-range hotel. two of our party had to move to a shared-bathroom private room, which was equally clean and secure. very little in the way of kitchen facilities and "community", but very helpful and welcoming staff. peaceful in the heart of the city

19th Nov 2013

an award winning hostel, and obvious as to why. despite arriving early in the morning, we were made very welcome immediately, and extra effort was put in to have our room ready as soon as possible. only one shower made mornings a little awkward and did delay us, but overall a highly recommended hostel that is a two minute walk from the citadel. a special mention is deserved for the immaculate, and well provided, kitchen. five star!!!

Hi there, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that we didn't meet your expectations. Although we are a big hostel we try to be as personal and customer focused as we can. At this time of year we are indeed very busy and waiting times can increase as well as they do at the airport when checking in. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels and we would love to see you again some time soon. Thanks Nomads Auckland Management

a little way out of the centre, (and uphill!!) but still close enough for easy access. the well maintained garden, complete with hot tub were enjoyable, but being in the annexe with two very small shower cubicles and little hot water was a minus for an otherwise decent hostel

As somewhere to sleep,perfectly reasonable and good value. However it is a guest house and you will be staying with a family. There are no locks on the doors to the room and no facilities other than the bed and bathroom. An excellent breakfast was always marred by the over helpful owner whose constant attention became oppresive. Things were taken from our room, justifiably and helpfully (due to ants) but as the linen was not changed and seemingly no cleaning done, why were people in our room

Sorry about the price increase...the pricing depends of the availability of beds...all other dorms were full...so new guests would have paid the same of you if they had come into your room.We do our best to be reasonably priced,hope that we didnt put you off coming back again.
