Kathmandu, Nepal

Probably my favorite hostel thus far. The facilities are pretty basic, but the staff and the vibe of the place is unlike any other. A stay in Kathmandu isn't complete without a visit to Alobar.

Little Hanoi Hostel

Hanoi, Vietnam

Great hostel. Really friendly staff. I was having breakfast and this woman was talking about trying to find a good place for bun bao when the morning receptionist walks over and gives her hers. In addition, the facilities are great for a little hostel. My only gripe is the lack of free parking overnight but that seems to be a problem specific to Hanoi.

Here Be Dragons

Battambang, Cambodia

Friendly, helpful, welcoming, and overall amazing staff. Great little hostel. The limited options and the pub make it very easy to be social. It's also a honeypot for expats in Battambang. Check out there pub trivia night - it's probably the rowdiest event all week in Battambang.

HI Siem Reap

Siem Reap, Cambodia

The staff are really friendly and hardworking - they spent over an hour trying to fix the DVD player when the sound didn't work. The common space, albeit small, is really effective at getting people to chat. The winner is the location though: less than five minutes from Pub Street. The food isn't bad either, though it takes a while (guessing they only have one burner?)

The Explorers Guesthouse and Hostel

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Very clean hostel albeit not too social. The staff, however, are incredibly helpful. As soon as we arrived, we received great recommendations for a late dinner and directions for exploring different parts of KL.


Great bungalows. Close to Legian, but on a poorly maintained alleyway (dead rats/roadkill, muddy puddles, and no lights at some points). The bathrooms also seem prone for mosquito breeding. Very accommodating and helpful staff!

Kampoeng Djawa

Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Staff was very helpful. Good value for the money. The location was nice, albeit touristy. Nice decor and good atmosphere, but felt more like an old motel than a hostel.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Friendly and resourceful staff, albeit a bit aloof. Great atmosphere and good location.


I highly recommend Guesthouse Nara Backpackers! Takeshi and his wife are incredibly nice and friendly. The hostel was originally owned by a tea ceremony instructor so theres a lot of rustic charm and a beautiful garden with plenty of modern amenities. I would highly recommend anyone staying in Nara to check this place out!


Great hostel. Friendly staff and clean facilities. I would definitely recommend them in the future. Great location for a lot of Kyoto's sights!
