Blablabla' Faro

Faro, Portugal

Like a home. Linen, bathroom, kitchen all very clean and super well equipped. Wifi worked even in rooms. Close to bus and train and eateries. Host super friendly and helpful. A flight of stairs, but Kim very kindly helped with luggage. Beware if you google map the address, the hostel is very close to the bus station, not at the other end of the street. Excellent hostel would stay again!

Salitre Hostel

Lisbon, Portugal

Close to metro and easy to find, safe and not many stairs inside. Wifi worked well even in rooms, the hostel also had a computer to use. Staff were always approachable. Linen, rooms and bathrooms very clean. Enough space in rooms, enough toilets and showers, breakfasts well stocked. Kitchen very well equipped and always clean. Booked four nights and stayed seven. Would definitely recommend!


The owners are the most friendly, warm, caring people. The bungalows are in a beautiful setting, wifi and bathroom facilities good. Kitchen very well equipped and the kinds of travellers the hostel seems to attract are laid back and friendly. Definitely worth repeat visits!

This is the second time I've stayed at this hostel.The location is great-close to well connected metro station,supermarket,restaurants & walkable to the city & Gare de L'est.Wifi good.This time however,the shower was one of those timed push button ones & the shower screen did not go the full length so water went all over the floor. The lock on the bathroom door was also broken. Breakfast was good. Availability of a lift was very appreciated! No bedside lamps. Stay for the location.

Day and Night Hostel

Zagreb, Croatia

Great location close to bus and train stations and not far to old town. I booked an 8bed dorm with ensuite but was given a 6 bed dorm with no ensuite. There was no powerpoint at my bed. Lockers were big. Bathrooms fine, clean. Kitchen quite basic. Linen clean. Staff ok. The ladder to the top bunk was uncomfortable to climb up compared to others. Hostel is on first floor of building, no other stairs which was nice!

MOJO Budva

Budva, Montenegro

Great location close to bus station and not far to beach and old town. I booked a mixed dorm but received a private room as i would have been the only girl in the dorm- the staff were that thoughtful and didnt even accept any extra money for thr private room. Wifi worked well. Linen clean. Low srason so difficult to comment on atmosphere. Kitchen facilities avail. Would def stay here again.

The Rooms

Sofia, Bulgaria

Vera was really nice, friendly, and approachable. Good location near bus and train stations but many day trips actually leave from closer in town. Linen clean. Shower was joint with toilet and there was no showerscreen, but it was ok. Nice quiet location. An electric kettle would have been good to make tea/coffee as using a match and gas flame was a bit slow. Place was well heated. Laundry facilities would have been handy as there are no laundromats in Sofia. Wifi worked well.


Brasov, Romania

Excellent location, close to main square and main bus station in the Old Town, making it easy to do day trips. Rooms and linen all very clean, big lockers, adequate space. Wifi worked fine. Bed lamps would have been good. Powerpoints near the beds. Breakfast was cornflakes, bread, boiled eggs and tea/coffee

Explorers Hostel

Bucharest, Romania

Owners were lovely and keen to help with city information etc. Small homely hostel, felt very safe and the owners cared to ask how i was going, noting if they hadnt seen me since the previous morning.wifi fine.Bed lamps would have been good. Bathroom wasnt cleaned daily but it was ok. Breakfast was toast with cheese/jam and drink. With the directions from the train station, dont turn right down Dinicu Golescu, the directions are simply saying that the street runs along your right side.

Aboriginal Hostel

Budapest, Hungary

Small, homely apartment. Lots of films on hard drive to watch,.breakfasts were good, close to small grocery shops, staff friendly and helpful. Linen clean, rooms big enough, lockers avail. Beware with directions from train station- the main entrance is not the only one with big arched windows, so double check its the one with tall columns too. Kitchen well equipped. Lounge room and dining table area to meet people.

Generator Hostel Hamburg

Hamburg, Germany

Great location close to station, shops, food. Staff pretty good, linen clean, big lockers underneath beds. Ensuite toilet and shower were indeed tiny, the bathroom down the hallway was so much better. Room was well cleaned every day. Hostel was easy to find, had a lift, wi fi was ok. Lights above individual beds with powerpoint and a little privacy screen. Would stay here again.

Danhostel Copenhagen City

Copenhagen, Denmark

Good location.linen clean tho you pay for it.they also charge to store your luggage.the least clean hostel i have stayed at, but it wasnt too bad.enough space in rooms. wi fi ok.i chose a mixed dorm however i was the only female amongst 4 males and i really feel that was inappropriate and potentially unsafe.there was also another girl in the same situation.staff didnt understand that i am happy with a mixed room but there should never be only one girl.this has never happened in other hostels.

Shelter City

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Good location, clean sheets, bathroom facilities fine, breakfast nice, staff mostly friendly & helpful, wi fi fairly good, common areas to meet ppl, microwave/ fridge available for use. They allocate specific beds, to change bed it was a huge hassle when it should be simple as bed was clearly free and in same room. It wasnt the staffs fault but the computer system. Its a pain to show a piece of paper every time you enter the hostel for security.dont be put off by red light district, its safe.

Au Royal Hotel

Carcassonne, France

Great location not far from train station, basically in between station and medieval town. (If you dont have a car, there is no way you would want to get your luggage to a hotel in the medieval town as it is uphill). wi fi works only at reception not in rooms. Room and bathroom simple, a little old, but functional and clean. Hotel has stairs, no lift. Breakfast not really worth the extra €8. Staff helpful. would stay here again for its location which was perfect.

Hostel Pastoral

Nice, France

lLocation-very close to train station, 15min walk to shops and beach. family run, they were lovely and friendly and helpful. rooms spacious, air conditioned, cleaned daily, had lockers and fridge in room. towels provided which was great. close to shops etc. kitchen and balcony good places to meet others. extra toilets and showers along hallway were useful. would definitely stay again! if you want only beach, maybe stay closer to that tho.


Great location close to fairly major metro station. Staff mostly friendly and helpful. Wi fi in rooms and free access to computers was great. Breakfasts good. Rooms clean, enough space for bags, enough powerpoints, bathroom seemed new and was cleaned daily. No lockers. No common space to meet others.Laundromat right next door, close to shops, cafes, restaurants etc. Felt safe at night.Could walk to city centre approx 30mins.Would stay here again!

The Kivi Milimani Hotel

Nairobi, Kenya

Would stay here again. Fairly good location as walking distance to city. Staff friendly, helpful. Food at restaurant good and very reasonable in price. Buffet breakfasts included a large range of hot and cold items. Room was simple but always well cleaned by staff. Hotel felt safe. I needed to flick the hot water switch on a couple of hours before using it. When checking out, the girl rounded up my bill from the 30cent to whole dollar on eftpos which i wasnt happy with. Overall a good hotel.
