The Backpackshack

London, England

We really enjoyed staying here. The neighbourhood is really nice, while it is slightly out of the way of the main tourist attractions, we actually enjoyed this as it was quiet and it gave us a chance to see a different part of the city. Everything is only a tube ride away anyways. Everything was clean and both Derek and Sue were very helpful if we had questions about London or if we needed to arrange transport. I'd definitely recommend this place to my friends!

Lete Youth Hostel

Xining, China

Decent enough hostel. Only stayed one night as we were on a stop over on our way to Tibet, but it did the trick. Nice rooms, close to some stores but about a 30 min walk to the main square. The free breakfast was nice, but would have been better if we had a choice as to which breakfast to get free.


The staff were so friendly, and the rooms were far superior to what I was expecting! All transportation and tours can be arranged through the hostel, which makes traveling super easy in Hanoi. Would 100% stay here again!!

Hoa Binh Hotel

Hoi An, Vietnam

Great hotel extremely close to the old town in Hoi An. We really enjoyed staying here during our time in the town. They staff were very friendly and helpful, and booked tours/cooking classes/taxis for us. The room was very nice as well. Breakfast was stellar and it was included in the room price. We tried to eat at the restaurant a couple other times outside of breakfast but waited 15-20 min and got no service so that was kind of disappointing but there are so many restaurants and cafes nearby.

Vietnam Inn Saigon

Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Great place to stay, close to everything but far enough away to remain quiet at night. The staff were helpful, laundry and taxi services made life easier. Would definitely recommend this to anyone going to HCMC!

Me Mates Place

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

A nice place to stay in Phnom Penh, clean, quiet and good food. The front desk staff help you arrange tuk tuks and tours, and they're helpful! The only negatives for this place I would say would be the fact that you can't get wifi in your room, and the bar staff!! There would be 3+ on staff just sitting around talking or playing pool and won't come take your order. And once you go up to give them your order they seem very frustrated that you're interrupting their day. So rude!

Rosy Guest House

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Everything was good at this hostel, although nothing really stood out. I felt as though the staff was not always happy about helping clients, and that it was a bit of a hardship to help book bus tickets or something. It is definitely a bar before a guesthouse, but even that service was hit and miss. I think for the price of this hostel in comparison with others, the breakfast should be free. Everything was fine, but nothing exceptional.

Nick's Homestay

Ubud, Indonesia

This place was great! You're staying on an authentic Balinese compound, yet you're close to everything! The staff are very helpful, we booked two tours and a taxi to the airport with them and it was excellent service each time. Breakfast delivered to your door every morning, local tea on your porch, honestly, one of the best places I've stayed in SE Asia.

Ari Putri

Denpasar, Indonesia

Beautiful setting!

The Explorers Guesthouse and Hostel

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Great location, the staff were accommodating where possible.


Great place to stay while in Dali, its in the old town but a bit off the beaten path so its nice and quiet. Really enjoyed the 'family dinners' at night and Lily is so helpful with booking taxis and other things that you might need help with.

Lijiang Hidden Garden

Lijiang, China

This hostel was really great, the rooms are recently renovated and very beautiful. It seems more like a hotel than a hostel though. The ladies that work were were really helpful, however the guy that works there didn't have much information about Tiger Leaping Gorge or even restaurants in the old town. Turn to the girls for help if you need it!

The Hump Hostel

Kunming, China

Great place to stay in Kunming, right off the main square. The staff was extremely helpful in booking train tickets and has a lot of information on things to do in the area. Not the cleanest hostel I've stayed in, but the atmosphere more than makes up for it. Great food in the pub as well. I would definitely recommend this.

Nahbi Guest House for Backpackers

Gyeong-ju, South Korea

This is a great hostel, right in the centre of the town. We stayed for two nights a thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The private rooms are big a spacious, its quiet, but also cultivates a friendly atmosphere. Great for those who want some peace and quiet and those who want to meet people as well. The staff are friendly and helpful. Self-serve complimentary breakfast is a good plus too :)
