Overall decent hostel. Has activities everynight and two free beer happy hour which helps to get ppl to know each other. No breakfast or computers - it seems like DC hostels arent top notch with amneties. Fairly close enought to union station. Overall, ok/good hostel. Nice staff

Ive stayed at both green tortoise And this place as theyre the top hostels in seattle. This hostel is more modern kitchen and room and arts is everywhere. The staff are nicerand down to earth. There are no computer/PCs like its shown in the photos. Green tortoise has computers and a better atmosphere to meet people i must say, and eggs/pancake/toast/fruit for breakfast and dinner nights and is right next to the pike market.This hostel has cereal (and milk)/toast/fruit and is in decent location

If u want a quiet place, go here. If ur looking for a backpacker place with activities and vibe, dont go here. Place is very basic- wifi. No breakfast or coffee, but its cheap and near a metro station and mall. Takes abot 10-15 minutes to get to downtown via metro.

Yup, theres a reason why this place is great. Free breakfast with eggs, taco and pasta nights (they dont skimp on the food- plenty to eat), GREAT location, good vibe, clean, and has activities for u to do pretty much each day. The owner knows how a backpacker hostel should be like- u can just tell

A bit pricey. Overall its ur average hostel. Th location is not near downtown/city center. Theyre a pretty environmentally hipster hostel. Only thing i would stay is the staff seemed annoyed the day i came in, like they were annoyed with questions being asked and did t really show u things/facilities; i figured it out myself. Clean and has phone and computer u can use

Good cheap place. Very basic, not free tea coffee brekkie, etc. Clean. Dave was only a housekeeper but wound up being like the receptionist for me by answering all my questions. Thanks!

Thank you for taking the time to review us, and for your stay here. I am happy to say that we do indeed now offer free tea and coffee, however I apologise as this must not have been shown to you during your tour of our place. Hopefully you will be passing this way again and take advantage of the additional facilities!

Everythings good as a hostel and place to stay. Only thing is atmosphere-- its more of a hostel hotel place where groups and families come. There are some solo travelers but its not a backpackers place as much. Good facilities and very clean.

View Property Reply

Thank you for reviewing our hostel. We try to cater for both families and solo travelers but due to the fact that we have more private en suite rooms than dormitory rooms, we are not a typical backpacker. We will try to organize more activities for solo travelers in the future.

This place has a mix of families, few backpackers and the occasional old man who seems to stay there for a long time. I got someone who talked early in the morning:/. So its not really a backpacker place id say. Theres wifi, breakfast u pay for. Location is good as the closest subway stop connects to the airport as well - leave early for ur flight! I missed my flight cuz i didnt know the airport subway leaves every 30 minutes 60 minute ride!

Nice and clean, staff was friendly and even took us out one night :) Takes only about 20 minutes to walk to the main area with shops, bars, restaurants, etc. Place didnt have much of a social atmosphere-- could be the people traveling or it was winter so not many people are there. There are cups, maybe 2-3 spoons/knives, hot water, microwave, and drinking water. WIsh there were some plates, some more utensils.

Good location if you like to be near the shopping and eating area. Staff and security are ok, this place had more of asian groups that came in when I came so not the best atmosphere for a solo backpacker. The free food (ramen, bread, PB, coffee, tea, was nice). Heated floors were great in winter, very clean. OVerall, good place to just chill and be alone for a few days.

The main things about this hostel: it has one of the best meeting-other-travellers/people-atmosphere. AND IT HAS A CUTE LITTLE PIG!! Sigh..I miss him. (scratch him below his cheeks--that's his sweet spot). The hostel's cheap, has wifi, great location and vibe. I was there in the winter, where more long term people stay. It seems intimidating at first since they all know each other already, but they're really nice once you get to know them :)

***FOR DIRECTIONS: when you get out of the subway (Exit B), you will see street. Use the bridge to cross it. Then you see an alleyway/small street ahead of you. Walk straight for a few blocks, you will see an alleyway to your right with a big sign on top of a building saying "HAPPY DRAGON". - Try using public transport to the Great Wall- it's much cheaper and quite easy to get to, and you won't be taken to jade and silk shops like all the other tours. - Hostel was good

Good place- a bit quiet as i came during winter. Ppl do smoke in the restaurant/bat which was a bummer. Its a bit tricky finding the alley/small street. Before u come into china, get it loaded on google maps (which is blocked in china) so u dont get lost! Also, u can go to terra cotta warriors via public bus instead for soo much cheaper (only 7 rmb each way)! Take the buses that are parked to the right of the train station. I took bus 103.

Great location. i went when its winter so where rooms are located are a bit cold. Bathrooms can be crowded sometimes but no big deal. Wish there was free tea and coffee instead of having to buy it. TIP: if ur flying domestic, try to get a late morning flight- metro doesnt open until 6am, not enough time to catch a morning flight (taxis is about $33 to airport). And before getting to china, download vpn app-- or gmail google, google maps, facebook wont work on ur phone/computer!!

Seriously, good everything. Just no air conditioning... So wear bug spray before you sleep! Buy water from budget mart- much much cheaper. And take the "southwest" airport transfer if ur coming from kalibo airport-- it takes u straight to the hostel for 500 pesos. Covers bus, ferry, and jeepney. Its also what the locals do.

Great everything- atmosphere and amazing staff etc.! Only bad thing is wifi is verrrry slow and the location is not great. You can get by with cheap tricycle, but it can be annoying when u just need to go to the ATM or want to eat out. Make sure you have enough money before checkig out and closing ur tab. But eveything else is great!!

The place is old- in a musty way. If u need just a place to sleep with aircon and wifi, its ok. If u want an atmosphere, go down the streetto hanoi backpackers. If u want a halong bay tour, just go to the tour agency across the street as its cheaper.

Like everyone said- amazing amazing staff, everyone who stays here as a traveller was nice- bike ride ended up being good and not long at all! Tips: research on tailors before buying stuff; cheapest but great quality place i found was "blue gecko"- recommended by an expat. Ladies- ask the staff about doing what a LOT of local viets do-going to a salon and getting "shampooed" for only $1.Also, eat a yummy buffet place called Bale Well. I stayed longer cuz this place is lovely.Miss it already!

Its in an alleyway which has cheap street food, massage spas, everything you need. Just keep in mind their airport pickup service will be charged to you when you check in $15. Normal price if u haggle at the airport is $7 (about 150,000 viet dong)

I was in the 4 bed dorm behind reception so wifi worked well in that room. Everyone else had to go to the lobby. Free breakfast was baguette bread and eggs. My room had aircon. The toilet did not have a toilet seat. Basic hostel. Fairly easy to meet people in the lobby, esp. As eveyone is looking for ppl to go to the waterfall with them (150 baht). Only 2 of the staff really know english to be able to help you out with questions.

Everything isgood or above average. Location just isnt great like what everyone else said. Tuk tuk from where your bus drops you off should cost about $1.50 to get to the hostel.

View Property Reply

We actually offer FREE pickups from bus stations in Phnom Penh. We can also arrange air port pick ups for $7. We dont want our customers first impressons of Phnom Penh getting ripped off by a tuk tuk driver as soon as they step off the bus! To arrange this simply email bookings@88backpackers.com. There is no "center" in Phnom Penh, everything is spead out. The most efficient way for tourists to see the "sights" is by moto, tuk tuks or if you can cope with the heat, by foot. Happy travels!

Ok hostel, basic one. Wifi works only in the fromt bar area. Rooms are in a separate building in the bAck. bathroom is separate building as well. The atmosphere is not great, other backpackers and i went to chill and hangout up the street at monkey republic (you can only bool there via walk in, just a tad bit pricier) but thats where a lot of backpackera hang. Girl next to my bed got bed bug bites.I prob would have stayed somewhere else. There are many hostels and guesthouses on the same road.

Good social hostel, easy to meet ppl. Convenient they have bar and food but pricier. Also they sell bus tix. Only downfall like other ppl have said is the location. Maybe 20-30 min walk. Tuk tuks at hostel are pricier than off the street ones for tours. Also water and food is cheaper across and down the street. Tuk tuk from city to hostel should be only $1-$1.50

Thank you for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay here at 88. The tuktuks that operate outside Eighty8 are registered with us but operate independently. The pricing in the hostel for the tours are advertised as a guide price only. A price that we feel is fair to both yourself & the tuktuk drivers. 88's location is in a bustling area of the city and yes there are lots of authentic street food and drink nearby that is cheaper. We dont discourage anyone from trying this!

Ok hostel, not great for atmosphere for meeting other ppl. Close to the city which is small anyways. Bed Sheets are changed everyday. Tour and bus bookings are pricier through the hostel. I just rented a bicycle down the street for $1/day which was good for seeing everythin including the temples.

Your typical basic dorm. Clean, has wifi, about 10 minute walk from the tourist area of khao san rd. Only thing was that staff seemed to mix up things or was confused as i had extended a night but the other receptionist didnt seem to know about it.

the water pressure is terrible. There is a tap faucet by your knees-you can bend down to wash your hair. I got a bucket from a bar to collect the water to wash my body. Wifi cuts in and out. wanted to extend a night but pay later which they said was ok. A few hrs later, they said the place was full. The island was getting booked up quickly and i stressed

View Property Reply

The tap on the wall is only for the cleaner to fill their mop bucket and is not intended for people to use to wash their hair. So we decided to say screw it to the trying to being green and environmentally friendly gravity fed shower system and installed a big ass pump to crank up the water pressure and further drain the islands limited water supply to keep people having problems washing their hair happy :)

Has nice extras such as volleyball, workout area, pool - ppl mainly lounge by the pool during the day and go out at night. Staff speak english - yay! Only down part is the location. Its in the middle of the long main road on the island, so theres not much nearby at all. You will always need to pay taxi (minimum 100 baht) to go either to the party side (haad rin beach) Or the side where the pier drops u off (thongsala) which had some more shops and food nite mkt orrent a motorbike to get around.

Staff is great. Atmosphere is great. The one main thing is the cleanliness. They do not clean the bathrooms (the same hair balls have been there all the nights i stayed), nor the lounge area. The hostel sells bus vouchers as well. My friend and i got unlucky and wound up on a bus that sidnt have a permit. So instead of getting to kal in 5 hours, it took 9 hours. My other friend went on another bus at another time and was fine

Its right by the city. All hostels/hotels are in the city as its tiny. No drinkin water. The main downfall was that my roommate and i found bed bugs. The staff were really nice about it and tried to fix it as quick as possible and put the beds out in the sun and sprayed the wood down. so just make sure to check under your bed before laying in it!

Located right in the city centre and Pasar Seni metro/train station which was great and near the free purple bus stop. Clean. Breakfast is simple toast and jam/butter, free drinking water. The walls can be thin so sometimes it's easy to hear people walking and talking in the halls. Some of the workers are not from the area so sometimes they didn't know answers to your question. Overall, Good Cheap place for your basic hostel.

Whats great about this hostel is that Howard is so enthusiatic and kind in having a quick bike stroll to show people about and eat dinner at local cheap places or the market. This is how i made friends there! The receptionist guy was so friendly as well which helps when you have a rough day travelling to malaka and just checked in. And theres free water. Just keep in mind that the dorm room (i stayed in female 4 bed dorm) has only a fan, no aircon which got quite warm at night.

Free drinking water which helps save you from buying lots of water, right near everything- great location, across from supermarket and cheap food stall. Staff speaks limited english. Wifi only works in lobby. I was in the open room dorm (not bunk beds) and it turns out u make friends a lot easier that way. Taxi should cost only 50,000 rupiah from the airport. Bargain hard!

And even when you check out, we have a few final check-out duties that we give you @ check in to read over. We exist in the HISTORIC district, so if old homes turn you off you - even just a little bit, you might want to choose a different space to be hosted. Danny, a former electrical engineer & Leah, former high school English & Speech teacher enjoy teaching travelers how to make the most of their time & money while they're in Houston. Leah is a native Houstonian & knows many of the off-the-beaten-path hidden treasures! Danny teaches a FREE self-awareness class @ the hostel, & as a military intelligence officer in the Army, trust me he'll teach you some very COOL moves! Plus he LOVES to share his knowledge.

Our 33-acre protected district contains the highest concentration of historic homes in Houston, many dating back to the late 19th century. The neighborhood has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1978. It's a unique place. Only 15 minutes walk to Downtown & 5 minutes to Washington ave, where new bars, restaurants & cafes are opening up what seems like every weekend. Washington Ave. is the most historic street in Houston that leads directly in to downtown. It's going through a revitalization & many of the older buildings are being re-purposed. All guests share kitchens & bathrooms. Yet, If you enjoy communal living then you would probably feel right @ home.☺

You have to walk about 15-20 minutes to the bus stop if you are trying to get to the airport (or if you are coming from the airport). The local bus that takes you around the beach area is pretty much across the street. Some of the staff was helpful in knowing when the buses ran, places to see and do...and the other half seemed not too helpful and were sort of unprofessional- kind of brushing off questions. The dorm comes with a kitchen area. The ktichen was ok for cleanliness.

Its about a 15 minute walk from the city center. And takes quite a while to get to the ferry if you plan to go to Capri Island or other places. This place is a hotel, but with some rooms having bunk beds in them (aka those are hostel rooms), so dont expect extra facilities suchas kitchen but you can order food from their restaurant. they have happy hour as well. Staff was ok, not mean but not friendly either. There are ants for sure but the maids try to clean them up.

So, oh well. The vibe was ok, just didn´t surpass a couple of other hostels Ive been in.

Note- no kitchen or common room. You are just in your dorm room of 10 or 20 people.Most people who stay were in grops so its harder for solo travelres to make friends. Most come to drink and smoke, so dont be suprised if people come in late at night loud and not caring on whether they bug you or not. Its Amsterdam after all.. For security, theres a guy that chills at the front desk and the front door to the hostel is left open until 4am just fyi.

Just another hostel- nothing special. It has only 1 computer for everyone to use, which was usually occupied by someone. The man in the front was pretty cold and kind of unfriendly when checking in. The way the hostel is set up, it was more of a quiet vibe, versus others I´´ve been in. So it´ wasnt as easy to meet people., Overall just average and a bit bland.

It was my first hostel ever and I´´m so glad I chose it. It had breakfast, luggage storage, computers to use, free internet, and most importantly, it was easy to meet people (ie. kitchen dring dinner time, common room, bar). The people I met there set such a good tone for the rest of my trip. So far, its been hard trying to get a hostel with a good warvibe as this place. m

It was more like a suite-style dorm. My room had 3 beds, not the 8-16 beds in a typical hostel. Not much of social interaction between people in different rooms, but most ppl are out and about during the day sightseeing anyways. It was clean, not super clean, but clean. Average ok place. Nothing great, nothing bad.
