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.

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


Hard Road Cafe

Koh Phangan, Thailand
83%

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.

Wifi is faulty at times which isn't a big deal, until you need to viber or skype :/ Laundry is available at I think 8 ringgits ($3 USD) per kilogram. Good location, has the basics of your typical hostel.


Couzi Couji

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


Cameronian Inn

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.


Ringos Foyer Guest House

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.

Nice free breakfast, usually a rice dish instead of just toast. Good location. I didnt go on the tour but the hostel has them for temples etc. for about $8 and up. there are lots pf students that can be loud. However you are put in a dorm room with other travellers.

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!

About a 20 minute walk to city center. Leah and danny are amazing people who go out of the way for you. They offered me to join them for dinner and a night out. One of the best statf ever. Hostel is small so you might not meet S many people but its very personable.

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.

However, If you prefer new neighborhoods & new buildings, then you probably would not be happy @ our hostel. We exist in a protected historic district which means that some of the homes here look distressed b/c it's against the law to tear them down & build new homes, in order to preserve the historic integrity. 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.

This is probably one of the top 2-3 hostels I stayed at during my 3 month Euro trip. Free breakfast AND dinner! The place feels very home-like which was nice. Location is great, right across the street from the train station. The staff are super friendly (ADAM---you are so awesome and kickass and kind). This hostel is the better Greg and Tom...at least you can get sleep here!

kinda pricey, but again..its Italy. theres no common room so everyone hangs and socializes in the bar downstairs. Its near the train station but it takes a while to walk to the sight seeing sites. Staff was ok..not mean but not friendly.


Florida Hostel & Hotel

Sorrento, Italy

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.

Clean, nice, good staff, etc. There were activities they set up and such but it was kind of hard as a soilo traveler connecting and meeting with others since I guess the time I went, a lot of them were in groups or couples. So, oh well. The vibe was ok, just didn´t surpass a couple of other hostels Ive been in.


69%

Note: no kitchen or fridge and to use the comptuer its 3.50 Euros per hour:( This was where I met the most group of awesome ppl compared to all the others Ive stayed at. Its easy to meet ppl in the common room or bar/restaurant area. Hostels a bit pricey.


Aivengo Hostel

Amsterdam, Netherlands
54%

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.

2GO4 Quality Hostel

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.


Caledonian Backpackers

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.
