Jailhouse Accommodation

Christchurch, New Zealand
69%

A decent hostel that wasn't remarkably good or bad. The extra blankets and hot water bottles were a nice touch. Unlimited Wifi would have been nice. They give you one hour free for your entire stay so if you want more you have to check out and then check back in again.

Hi, and thank you for taking the time to rate our hostel. We're glad that overall you enjoyed your stay with us. NZ is a little way behind the rest of the world and Wifi is not generally available for free country wide. We have been giving away one free hour internet voucher at check in as a special offer for the month of May. For the reasonable price of $3, extra hour vouchers available or you can purchase a 24 hour pass for $6.50. Kind regards The Jailhouse team

The hostel was OK. Great big common areas, but the whole place had a weird smell.

A really nice location if you have a car. Could have done with a few more toilets and showers. Free WiFi for members was a definite bonus! Very clean, quiet little hostel.

Fine hostel. Almost affordable WiFi, clean, was a party hostel but had amazing sound proofing. We were in our room pretty early and didn't hear a thing.

At $4 for 24 hours unlimited we can't make it much cheaper. However we do offer all guests 1 hour free internet on our house computers. Hope you enjoy the rest of your travels.

Stayed in a lot of hostels in the past year and this one is one of the better ones - it's got a cool layout and feels homey.

The owners are fantastic, and the location is great - right next to Whangarei falls and some nice walks. It would have been nice if a blanket and top sheet were included in the price.

Nice little hostel - great location, great staff, amazing showers. Unfortunately, the WiFi is freaky expensive, but I'd still recommend it. Lovely place.

Thanks for the great review, Actually we have just had our WiFi changed and it is much less expensive, But I do agree that our old system was expensive, but that's Internet for you in New Zealand third world slow and expensive

It's a great place - not your typical hostel, more of a community, so if you're looking for that it's perfect. It doesn't have the greatest facilities (one shower, no sinks in toilets - have to use kitchen) but what it lacks, it makes up for in charm.

It was pretty OK, if you like party hostels with a hotel like atmosphere.

Happy Snail Hostel

Singapore, Singapore
97%

This was one of the best hostels I've stayed at over the last 6 months of traveling. The owner mike goes out of his way to make people feel welcome, you can get discounts on many Singapore activities, the WiFi is super fast, it's clean, and there are big lockers. FYI - this hostel is tiny, with only three rooms, and feels homey.

Really great hostel - the staff are extremely accommodating. the WiFi worked well in the common area and the room. The location is good - it's in the old part of the city but not in the main tourist area - that's a good ten to fifteen minute walk. Comfortable beds.

Very nice clean hostel and a great place to meet people! WiFi didn't work in rooms, but that's not such a bad thing and made everyone hang out in the common room.

It was a good hostel - clean, well located, free wifi in the rooms, ensuite bathrooms. Unfortunately they charge three euros an hour to use a computer but that was the only main drawback. The hostel also offers a walking tour of the main city sights, which was a helpful starting point.

I ended up staying at sunrock (affiliated with vrachos) because then I also got breakfast and supper included in the price. It was a great place! The meals were a definite highlight and my vegetarian diet was accommodated with no problems. Great place, great view.

Hostel 5 Terre

Cinque Terre, Italy
86%

The best part about this place was the staff - they were unfailingly friendly, helpful and nice. I spent a whole week here and loved it. The only more challenging thing was the token operated shower located outside the shower, so if you want to have longer than 5 min you had to get out halfway through to recharge. Still, if I could go back to cinque terre, I'd stay at the same place in a heartbeat.

Other than the drunk roommates one night my stay here was great. Although it's on the edge of a party hostel (not really my style) it was really clean secure, and in a cool neighborhood. The Fixed gear bicycle theme was cool too!
