Duke Hostel

Greymouth, New Zealand

Host was very welcoming and every night he makes a pot of tasty soup for all. Kitchen set up is great and everything is clean. Bikes are available and there's a grocery store nearby. A great place to stay. Great hostel to visit.

Yi Dou Hostel

Yichang, China

We have stayed at many hostels in Asia. This was the best ever - contemporary, nicely decorated, clean and orderly. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There are many delicious street vendor foods offrred in the nearby streets - spiced fried potatoes, herb filled bread cooked like naan, and many other treats. Great vibe in the hostel, and even some english TV channels.


The bar downstairs makes it pretty noisy until 0200 in the seond bay. Terra cotta warrior tour seemed lnger than it needed to be, eight hours, but the guide was well informed . The yangtze tour was cheap but it was a chinese speaking crew andno effort was made to inform us of schedule changes, I.e., instead of 1230 tour to dam, everyone packed up and got on buses at 0730 the people were pretty nice. Music was turned on in the hallways at 0600 with loud announcements for tour goers.. Good food

Leo Hostel

Beijing, China

Great location near metro, Forbdden City. Great hutong for shopping and eating, dim sum right across from hostel and affordable delicious restaurants all around. Their Great Wall tour was uncrowded and well worth it. Lots of interaction in the restaurant bar. Helpful staff and clean rooms.

Hello. Thank you for your comments. Our hutong (ally street) is full with market shops and restaurants, so there is plenty to see both day and night.. We are very happy that you enjoyed our famous Secret Great Wall tour. It has been running over 8 years now and many people from other hostels/hotels join the tour. We hope to see you next time for more socialising in the bar! Beijing Leo Hostel.

Hello Hostel

St Petersburg, Russia

Great location right on the Nea English Embankment, but still a little hit of a hike to sights. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Most spoke good english.Scenic spot right on Neva.Kitchen and lounge facilities were great.There was no hot water (evidently a temporary problem).Reception area very noisy until wee hours. The place was definitely funky DIY, but it's great they have saved this abandoned mansion in a row of elegant buildings. Have Ivan tell you where to get Uzbeki food!

Marrakech Hotel Cecil 2

Marrakech, Morocco

The staff was incredible... very friendly and helpful. No heat in the room and it was cold in January. Second stay we were given a room with HEAT, a huge improvement. Sunny standard breakfast on the rooftop. Only 150 ft from the Jamaa el Jna plaza; yet very quiet at night. Great place to stay in Marrakech.


Rome, Italy

Printed directions were confusing; it is only a few minutes from the train stqtion: Helpful personnel; microwave; great location:

Sepilok Jungle Resort

Sandakan, Malaysia

This is just a few minutes walk to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehab Center. The atmosphere is very relaxed and beautiful- palm trees, ponds and they also have a beautiful pool in the middle of the jungle. We enjoyed our stay here dining al fresco and enjoying the beauty of the jungle. While it's on the main road to the Orangutan Sanctuary, it's about a ten minute ride to the bus stop so many tours are arranged here and the receptionist, Fang, spoke excellent English and was extremely helpful.
