Nagano, Japan

Nice and friendly hostel right near the temple and the bus stop for getting to nearby areas for hiking

Guesthouse Namaste

Kanazawa, Japan

Excellent value for money guest house with a host who is very happy to help. The guesthouse is ideally situated between the station, castle, samurai and geisha districts. Remember its a guest house and not a hostel so you get a more relaxed traveller atmosphere.

Hiroshima Hana Hostel

Hiroshima, Japan

Nice big hostel across 5 floors. Helpful staff and loads of travellers. Shame the hostel doesn't have a bigger central common area instead of 2 smaller ones.

Thank you for your comment. We are glad that you seemed to enjoy your stay here and meet loads of people. Also we had a good time with you!! Thank you!! If you have a chance to come back to Kyoto, please stay here again!!


Solid hostel within easy reach of all the most popular things to see in Shanghai. It's more like a big hotel but does have common areas in it which travellers frequent. Just don't expect an smaller hostel vibe. Good value for money though.

The Local NYC

New York, USA

Probably one of the best hostels I've stayed in. Friendly and helpful staff, nice spacious rooms, large common area and relaxed atmosphere. Only negative was only having 2 electric hobs in the kitchen, otherwise everything else was great. You can't help but meet great people here.

Thanks for your feedback. We'll look into getting more stovetop space for the kitchen. We appreciate the suggestion!

Base Brisbane - Embassy

Brisbane, Australia

Stayed one night. Staff were friendly and helpful regarding arranging transport to the airport etc. The rooms had good sized lockers. The kitchen could have been a bit cleaner but I think this is more down to certain individuals then the hostel. It's cleaned daily.

Brisbane City YHA

Brisbane, Australia

Stayed for one night. You get what you pay for with a YHA hostel and this one is no exception. Great facilities and a cleanliness that can only be dreamed of by other hostels. It's a pretty big place but it seemed sociable enough if your not looking for the homely feel.

The Pickled Frog

Hobart, Australia

Stayed for 2 non-consecutive nights. Good location and one of the best social areas I've come across. Spacious but with lots of character including wood burning fireplaces. My main suggestion would be to add a few more pans to the kitchen selection, currently there are more hobs then pans!

Blue Parrot Backpackers

Sydney, Australia

Really friendly and sociable atmosphere. Quite a few people working in Australia staying there but they're all really friendly and able to give you good recommendations on what to do while in Sydney. The location is also great, only a stones throw away from the botanical gardens which are great for a wander down to the waterfront.

USA Hostels San Francisco

San Francisco, USA

I had an amazing time. Friendly staff who make you feel welcome and loads of opportunities to socialise with others people staying in the hostel, via the common room and hostel organised events.
