Vanderbilt YMCA

New York, USA

After travelling for a year, and this being our last stop of our round the world trip- we received UNACCEPTABLE SERVICE from reception. Not only did they call our parents in the middle of the night to worry them to death, they failed to inform us of their stupidity-mixing up our room. They then had the cheek to CHARGE us to look after our bags for 2 hours after check out. PER BAG! No apologies, No explanation. NO MANORS. The only thing that this place has going for it is the gym facilities. JOKE


All the staff here are very friendly- and willing to help. Its in a ok area considering its just near North Station. Lovely free brekkie in the cafe next door. Tiny kitchen with no stove- but there are a few bars where you can eat in the area. Free computer with internet which was great for us- as we have no device to use. Made some good friends here. Only thing that was really annoying was the matresses- which were covered with a plastic film which made it feel like you were sleeping on a nappy

Big Apple Hostel

New York, USA

Cant fault this place on its location- Times sqaure is a stones throw away. We were greeted by a friendly young guy on reception, who was pretty funny too, and very helpful. We had a private room, which was small but nothing that we didnt expect- even though we did think its quite expensive. No breakfast or kitchen to use which is a shame- as its quite exspensive to eat in the area (unless you want fast food all the time) All in All- does the job.

Wrigley Hostel

Chicago, USA

All the staf were really down to earth and very helpful. Lots of good event going on in the hsotel- such as a free bbq and FREE BOOZE! Our room was really small, and not much room to keep your bags- however i think we were just in bad luck as all the other rooms seemed spacious. Free internet on the computer down stairs which was great- even though the connection was slow. Nice tv area to chill. Right next to Wrgiley Field if you wanted to catch a game, and near addision train stop.


NOTE TO ANYONE STAYING HERE: MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT ON TIME! There is an extremly rude woman(maybe the owner or manager) who shouts at everyone at 9.45 to get out. The rooms arn't very clean- and neither are the matresses. Its a good location being near the walk of fame etc.... but thats all your paying for.

Kaya House

Phuket Patong Beach, Thailand

If you're hoping to swing a cat in here... then your out of luck! The room was so small that we didn't even have anywhere to put our bags- and the only surface area was on top of a moldy fridge. The room was very basic but its what you expect for the price you pay. It was a good location, and the room did have a security box which was handy, as the room door didn't look very safe. Highlight was having a wifi box right outside our room :) Staff were friendly

Aonang Ayodhaya beach Resort

Krabi Ao Nang, Thailand

We loved this place, it was a lovely break from the usual backpacking haunts! The bed was huge, the air-con was fierce, and the girls on reception should be in standup comedy! Just a shame that its a 30 min walk away from the main area. great swimming pool. Try not to be put off by your first view/

Phalarn Inn Samui

Koh Samui, Thailand

The lady on the desk was really helpful and lovely! The pool was nice, and breakfast not too bad from the restaurant. The room was one of the most basic i have stayed in since ive been traveling... there was no water coming out of the tap, not flush on the toilet... we had to brush our teeth out of the tap near to floor! shame the rooms arnt as lovely as the staff. Good location if you need to get an early ferry.

Dear Guest, Thanks for your feedback and appreciating our staff and facilities. Regarding your complaint about the WiFi not reaching your room, I am happy to report that a new WiFi router has been installed on the floor you lived as on 20-Nov-12. Now even that floor is covered with a stronger WiFi signal. Hope you will return and experience the same. Take care and see you again sometimes. Regards Harish


Raj was veryy lovely and helpful during our stay, it cool to stay in a beach hut, but get used to bugs and no luxuries! Amazing location though

Castle House

Hotel Sapphire Residency

Mumbai, India

All the staff were extremly helpful, especially the lady behind the desk. the only problem was that we were over an hour away from the city centre. Good place for a stop over, but lacks charm & character.
