A small but social hostel, and a lot cheaper than others in the area. They also had loads of cats, which makes it a winner for me. Everything was up to par! Great location, staff, and facilities!

A pretty damn good hostel save in two aspects: poor wifi, and bad atmosphere. Staff were nice and tried to help with wifi (which didn't work), and they had regular events (but to no avail as very few people showed to them). Maybe my stay was bad timing, but there was very few people to speak with. A little on the pricey side.

A solid hostel in aspects. The dorms were a bit extra cold with air conditioning, which we weren’t complaining about. They even had enough internets to catch up with Game of Thrones, and generally wifi is poor in my Mexican hostel experience. Friendly staff who give good recommendations! Super close to the centre!

Nice early check in and decent breakfast, and the staff is friendly. But the wifi is worse than abysmal. We tried to book out next hostel for an hour before giving up and going to a local coffee shop. The dorm rooms didn't have any plugs for charging, the showers were like a trickle, and there was so much noise throughout the night. I honestly I don't know how they get such a good rating...

It took me 15 minutes of buzzing in, and another 10 minutes of calling the desk (ON ROAMING) to alert the guy on reception to open the door at 1am (24 hour reception, my ass). Otherwise, below par in every aspect! The hostel is on the 6th floor (which wasn’t made clear, and I had to ask around on arrival) of a building in a dodgey-ish (but central) area. No freebies really, and if you’re doing laundry, you have to pay above other hostels to do it yourself. Bad showers. Some amazing staff!

This is one of two in the city of the International Hostelling group. This one in Central is closer to the historic centre, local sights and museums etc. It's a good hostel overall, but a little on the quiet side. There was another hostel of the same chain in Chapultepec, which is the social area of the city. Went here for beers and preferred it. Wifi is sketchy, but other than that, a really good hostel. Really friendly staff.

Hi! Thanks for your comments. We are glad you liked our hostels. Like you said, the one in downtown is a more relaxed and historical-center-oriented and the one in Chapultepec is a more party-hostel. There is a place for everyone ;) Safe travels! - Hospedarte centro manager

Really recommend this, it also has an amazing vegan restaurant (with amazing food), spa, and yoga classes attached. Everything here is really solid; they give you towel, shampoo, and soap on arrival (or maybe they were trying to say something), and there's a very zen vibe about the place. Nice views of the city from the rooftop! The only criticism I have is the 3pm check-in is a little late, but they'll keep your bags if you want to head out & explore.

The wifi was absolutely frustrating, with like 6 networks (some with passwords and some without) and none working particularly well.. so your phone/laptop spends most of the time just trying to decide which network would actually work. The two small social areas didn't really induce mingling either. Oh and one of the security guards had a real stick up his ass, he was complaining to a friend who I was getting an uber for to get out at 3am while she waited. Everything else was standard!

Amazing location and friendly staff. Nice large containers under the beds for all your stuff. It is however, more expensive than competitors in the area, I didn't realise on arrival that $6 + a night was toward the more expensive end. Oh! If you get in late, it'll be a little locked up and you'll have to wake whoever is inside to let you in!

This hostel, while being in Amsterdam city, is still a good 25 minute walk from the train station; considerably further than other options that are within minutes of the station (at the same price). The rooms themselves were fine. Everything was pretty average, bar my locker door which wouldn't lock. Security was good otherwise. The toilets are tiny! Staff accommodation, allowing some to have a late check out. Overall a pretty average hostel.

We arrived in the rain and my only pair of shoes were soaked through, only to find that the hostel had given our beds away.. a solid 0/5 recommendation there. The receptionist was also pretty unhelpful and her english wasn't great.

This place is outside the city by a 20 minute walk but the hostel offers a free hourly shuttle. It’s got a good vibe and is relatively cheap ($17) and also offers decent meal deals and free breakfast (well.. toast). It’s quite a social place, having some event or competition on every night which earns it a 3/5! They also feature the biggest cat I’ve seen in my life, a solid half meter long and the width to boot!

This place gets a solid 4/5. It’s run by a Swede named Bindi who makes you feel absolutely at home from the second you arrive. The small hostel makes excellent use of space; it’s packs in a kitchen (this is a massive bonus, being a rare occurrence in S.E Asia), common room and open air terrace. It’s also got wall to wall character, quirkiness, and usefulness (for example, theres a box of left over shoes which you can grab for free, in case you had planned on a hike). Bindi and Steven also employ

What can I say about this place.. out of the hundred (+) hostels I’ve stayed in, this is absolutely head over heels the best and gets 5/5. Free (good) breakfast, big lockers, double beds in the dorms with a curtain for privacy. Rooftop bar with a great view. Free bed for the bathroom, a lot of security… really, I could go on. The one black mark that I have against it is the bar; the spirits that they have are greatly watered down to an embarrassing level.

I'm staying in Kool Backpacker Hostel. This is a solid hostel, run by some really nice folk who give excellent advice on the local area. We spent a LOT of time in this hostel just watching movies. They've got a big ass screen with surround sound, and you can buy literally any movie around the corner for about $3 USD. I think in the whole time I had seen maybe 15 movies (probably more, realistically)? Great dorms and facilities! Excellent atmosphere!

I'm staying in the Moonstone Hostel, an it gets a 1.5/5. It's location is great, a few minutes from Haad Rin beach and I loved that the hostel supplied shampoo and soap. Everything else was pretty bad; air-con was out of commission so the place was permanently sweltering (they gave us a free bucket each to say sorry). It was too expensive also, the place smelled and the decor was, in a word, interesting...

View Property Reply

Thank you for your opinion. This makes 2 years since we opened and this is the first time we had a power conditioning. We have done our utmost to repair the broken part but unfortunately that was available the next day. I'm really sorry for the night without air conditioning. We ordered a second air for a dorm no longer have the same problem. At smells, I agree with you when it's hot and the air conditioning is broken we want to open the windows. It's been 2 years we are in the best hostels in Haad Rin on hostelworld.com and we are always strict with our customers.

When I had gone to sort it out, it seemed that roughly 7 other people had the exact same problem. But good dorms and rooms, mediocre breakfast of bread and butter, decent facilities and sketchy wifi.

It was a decent place, 4/5. Good location, lockers and facilities. Horrible breakfast of bread, a banana, and butter jam. An AWESOME feature was free beer (sometimes buckets) every day between 7-8. We booked their boat trip to Halong Bay, which didn't have the boat that they showed us pictures of (and promised we'd have). This sucked, but we had a good time all the same.

Hi Cian, we have no idea what are you expected for a great & cheap hostel for only 5 buck/night with everything included! and for the boat trip its was really busy on that day so we run by a bigger boat and nicer as well and everyone else was really enjoyed as well! BTW, Thanks so much!

LOTS of backpackers stay here and it’s real easy to meet new friends. I’m giving it 4/5, docking it one for something that is really poor. That is the staff. Some of them are ok, but many have a terrible attitude. They’re short with you and are just generally grumpy. They refused a refund when some of the guys in our dorm were

It’s a nice place, cheap beer and okay-ish rooms. The bathroom was pretty awful and the AC didn’t work, but they beds were good. Just please take my advice and be aware about the exchange rates. I checked the rate online for Thai Baht (THB) to Cambodian Riel (KHR) and it was at the time roughly THB 1,000 to KHR 133,000. How much did the hostel offer me? THB 1,000 for KHR 30,000. They organised a tuk-tuk to see the temples and bus out of town, which was nice. Free taxi to/from bus station!

This place rocks. It's in a party part of town and close to the BTS, which is excellent. Staff are friendly and cheeky, and the booze is cheap. Rooms have everything you need at your bunk; light, power, and mini stowaway table. Big storage but you'll need a lock. I think the laundry facilities could be a tad cheaper, but I can't complain about anything else!

It’s my first time in a homestay, but I'd a plane to catch at1am the next morning, so didn't actually stay for long. He introduces me to the wifi password via the rules chart, some of which are pretty odd. Nazz is a damn polite guy all the same, bending over backward to try and make you feel actually at home. Everything else is average - shared toilet and not high security for your valuables.

When we first arrived, I was so sick I could barely speak, and one of the guys there gave me a pillow to rest on while they sorted the room and Nishan (the owner) even fixed me a teacup of salt water and lime to help settle my stomach. He was also able to rearrange my previous booking to fit my girlfriend in, seeing as she hadn’t planned on staying. Great rooms, great place, great wifi!

Hotel Kumbha Palace, Udaipur, India

I cannot recommend this place enough. It's location is excellent, it’s about 7 mins on an autorickshaw from the train station and is close to the main attraction of Udaipur – the city Palace. So close in fact, that it’s got a big green back garden against the wall of said Palace. The rooms and bathrooms are in an okay state. nothing special, but the rest of the place more than makes up for this. Restaurant on the roof that overlooks the city. Really friendly and helpful host. Stay here!

This place is slightly out of the way. The guy who was working on the front desk was very helpful; couldn't have asked for more from him. Nice big kitchen/communal areas. Rooms are massive and slightly impersonal. My only criticism is exactly that; the areas are quite large and it makes it slightly difficult to make friends or talk to others. If you're in a group you may fear you're upsetting other guests because the same area is shared.

Hit hostel checked all the boxes for our group. The rooms are great size and the whole place is friendly looking. Staff are very willing to help. We ended up having a massive game of charades in the common room which involved drinking, and the staff didn't seem to mind. Made a good few friends there. Very secure and easy to get in/out of the place at all hours and location is good for walking to the old town and bars. Would have stayed for longer if possible!

This hostel is generally good, location is decent; it's close to a few bars/clubs. A few disappointing experiences: One night we had been playing music in the room and heard a few loud thuds on the door. Once open we found an employee who screamed in our face 'NO MUSIC', and stormed off. Some staff were lovely. The woman cleaning the kitchen seemed strict and impatient. The general age group didn't seem to match us either (we saw a few older couples and a class of students around the age of 16).
