Basic hostel (the Laos standard), but nice and clean. Delicious, filling breakfast. Easy to meet people to go tubing. Thought the place was slightly too expensive especially considering how cheap some of the guesthouses in town were. Staff was helpful for me, but I heard of a few problems with them overbooking. Very busy hostel, probably because it is one of the nicer ones in town. Dorms were set away from the main hangout area and very quiet at night if you want to get sleep.
Basic but functional hostel. Nothing fancy, but adequate for a stay in Luang Prabang. Bunk beds were very squeaky, but mattresses were comfortable. Aircon only comes on at 8 PM, which isn't horrible but when you're tired in the middle of the day it kind of sucks that you can't take a nap in a cool room. Lovely, very helpful staff. Banana pancakes at breakfast were delicious.
Best hostel I've stayed at in 3 months of traveling Southeast Asia. Super clean. Rooms were large and provided plenty of secure storage space for stuff. Beds were amazingly comfortable. Lots of good hangout spaces outside. Very friendly staff. Located within walking distance of the central bus station in town (despite what the tuk tuk drivers say). Wish I could've stayed longer!!
Excellent pod-style beds in this hostel with curtains for privacy. Top bunks have stairs so you don't actually feel like you're on a top bunk. Staff was very friendly and kept the place very clean. Bigger lockers would have been nice as the lockers provided were only large enough to store money and passport. The bathrooms were my only complaint: there was only one bathroom/shower for an 8 bed dorm, so you had to wait to use both.
Best shower I've had in Southeast Asia! Rooms were a bit cramped but the beds were pod-style with curtains giving privacy so didn't feel like I was in a dorm. Simple breakfast but enough to get the day started. A bit far from the sites but easy enough to get around the city from the hostel location. Staff was excellent and very helpful with making onward bookings to Inle Lake.
Great hostel! The dorm beds all have curtains and storage so it's like having your own small room. I lucked out and had an entire dorm to myself for a few nights. Pool and bar were lovely and it was just a short walk down to the beach. It's a bit far from some of the other parts of the island but good if you want to escape the craziness of some of the party beaches. Still plenty to do though!
Staff is good and helpful but I wasn't too impressed with the giant, 20-bed dorm rooms. The bathrooms were usually dirty again shortly after cleaning just because of the number of people using them. The AC was absolutely freezing if you were in the beds closest to it, and the blankets weren't warm enough. Lots of big groups came through during my stay, which isn't very fun if you're traveling on your own. The nearby beach was not very clean.
Chill Out House is by far the coolest hostel I've ever seen in. Such a good vibe! The staff were wonderful and extremely helpful. I honestly could have spent a few weeks here if I had the time. My only complaint is that the dorm beds could really use new mattresses because they were rock hard. I still slept well though. I would go back in a heartbeat!!
I really enjoyed my stay here. The girls who run the hostel are very nice and helpful. The hostel is really close to everything you'd want to see in old Georgetown and close to the buses to see the rest of Penang. Fan room did get a bit hot at night and the bunk beds were very squeaky but I still managed to sleep well.
Quality hostel located in a very central, convenient part of KL. Only downside about its location was getting across the street...there was a lot of traffic and no good pedestrian crossing, but this isn't the hostel's fault. Nice bunk beds in the room and good AC. Internet was a bit strained at peak hours. Staff was amazingly friendly and helpful! Would stay here again!

Probably the worst hostel I've stayed at in Auckland. Rooms were a mess and the other residents had their belongings spread out EVERYWHERE. Sheets weren't very clean at all...had hairs on them. Bathrooms were also not very clean, and there weren't very many bathroom facilities on the first floor. Random sink in the hallway. Small kitchen. Ridiculous $50 key deposit...does it really cost that much for a key? $25 I understand, but who carries around $50 in cash just for the key deposit?
Awesome hostel!! I highly recommend it for anyone traveling to Rotorua looking for a more homey place to stay. Big variety of travelers staying there, and everyone on the staff was very friendly and helpful. The best part, though, was the Maori Mud Pool trip offered. I ended up signing up last minute and I don't regret it at all! $35 ($25 of which went to charity) to do a mud bath and soak in a hot spring along a river with a bottle of wine and fellow travelers. Owner, Chris, was awesome!!
