Salmon Weir Hostel

Galway, Ireland

This place was basically a college dorm, run as a hostel by college boys; with the corresponding cleanliness and good vibes/hangout. Very chill, bathrooms were actually pretty clean. Sheets and pillows a bit less so (stains etc). Not a bad location at all, even if not directly downtown. Staff was nice and helpful. Always people downstairs hanging out and cooking. I would stay here again.

Riva Hostel Pula

Pula, Croatia

Great hostel. Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Beds and bathrooms were clean and we lucked into our own room since the hostel wasn't very crowded. Our room wasn't quite ready at 2pm when we got there, but overall I would stay here again. A very relaxed-but not party scene.

Dar Bouanania

Fez, Morocco

This Dar/Riad was quite lovely and a great deal for the price we paid. Abdul was helpful in setting up day trips, walking tours, and taxis whenever we needed it. Definitely a 'budget' riad; showers weren't fantastic and bedroom was very humid, but it was cheaper than a hostel and much nicer than European hostels I've stayed in. Check out the (top) terrace and get the 2 euro breakfast. The moroccan crepes are amazing. Lastly it was an easy to find and good situated location!

Rainbow Marrakech

Marrakech, Morocco

Rainbow was a great hostel in the heart of the Medina, just 2 minutes from the city square. Beds were nothing to rave about, nor the pillows or the hot water. But for 9 euros a night and a filling breakfast included, I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Location can mean a lot in Marrakech! Staff was also friendly and helpful.

Bahaus Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

This place was amazing. Location is perfect, staff couldn't have been more friendly. The terrace was super chill, both as a bar and for breakfast. We went to two of the 'family dinners' which were cheap and fun ways to meet other travelers. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Connect Hotel Skavsta

Nykoping, Sweden

Great breakfast, sheets, towels, all included. Bathrooms were very clean. Completely worth what we paid!

Dockside Hostel Old Town

Stockholm, Sweden

Great hostel in a great location. Right on the edge of Gamla Stan (Old Town) and facing the the rest of the city. Not a huge party scene, but that's what we were aiming for. Staff was nice, kitchen was great and stocked with pans/ cutlery etc. Beds were clean, bathrooms as well even though you had to walk into reception for the toilets and downstairs to shower. Not super cheap, but nothing in Scandinavia is. Would stay hear again.

Thanks and welcome back! You are absolutely right, we are not aiming to be party schene either. Party is taking place on town and then a nice and peiceful stay at 2kronor Old Town!

Bergen YMCA Hostel

Bergen, Norway

Hostels in Norway are pricey in general so I suppose I have innate high standards for a places that costs so much. Relatively clean rooms, beds, and bathrooms. Kitchen was practical, lounge room was nice, and dining room was lovely for chilling in when we had some time to kill. Location is great! Biggest problem is that the reception closes mid-afternoon. Our keys stopped working to our room in the evening and had we not run into a roommate, we would've been locked out for a while. Overall nice.

Anker Hostel

Oslo, Norway

Mixed feelings about this hostel. Literally could not find ANYWHERE else to stay in Oslo so this was somehow the cheapest option and the most money I hope to ever pay for a hostel. Hallways and dorm room were dirty. Bathrooms were fine. Beds were gross (which is why linens are necessary). Staff was very friendly and helpful. They let us store our luggage for free two days after we'd checked out before catching a flight out of Oslo. Not terrible, just a lot to pay for a not-so-top-notch hostel.

Central Station Hostel

Amsterdam, Netherlands

While very difficult to find at first, this hostel is tucked right behind Dam square and next to the Red Light District. Beds were very comfortable and clean. Bathroom was average in terms of cleanliness, but that's assumed when sharing with 9 other people. Staff was very nice and willing to help us locate things to do or restaurants. Watch out for the staircase!

Hotel Victoria

Strasbourg, France

Hotel Victoria was a fantastic deal for us. Costing about the same as a hostel, my friend and I got our own private room which was spacious and fitted with a TV and ensuite bathroom. Nothing super fancy, but for youth travelers it's very good value for the price you pay. Staff was super friendly and helpful. We arrived into Strasbourg very early and they let us check in earlier than we were supposed to so that we could nap.

Carlito's Way

Rome, Italy

Carlito's way was basically the same place as Hotel Des Artistes. I couldn't determine how that works but we stayed in Hotel Des Artistes and it was a fantastic value for the money. Room was spacious, staff was helpful, the bathrooms were spotless, and all a 8 minutes walk from Termini Station (train, metro, airport shuttle), and about 2 minutes from another metro station. Certainly not a party hostel, but that's not what we were looking for.

Riad Dar Tamlil

Marrakech, Morocco

Off of one of the main streets from the Medina (center of the Old Town) and down one of the many secret derbs (alleys), the door to this Riad opens up to a beautiful mosaic tiled courtyard filled with orange trees, birds chirping, adorable rooms, hot showers, and wonderful breakfast. Staff was amazingly helpful and kind, answering any questions we had. One even took the time to show us how to make 'Moroccan style' tea. Like a beautiful palace tucked away less than 4 minutes from the Medina.


This Bed & Breakfast was very welcoming and cozy. Staff was wonderful and breakfast was simply, but delicious. Walking distance to a few museums, but even better is right in-between two metro lines - less than a 3 minute walk and in a very safe area. All expectations were met. Side note: This B&B is next to an Asian restaurant and kind of hard to realize you are there. The sign is not huge, so have an idea of where you are going.


It was the perfect location with the typical hostel character. The bar is quite fun, happy hour is cheap, breakfast is simple, but relatively good quality. Sheets are clean, but stained, beds were comfortable. Towels were NOT free as I was told on the phone, but are free to HIRE meaning not free. Staff were all at least bilingual. Perfect for young anglophones who want to check out Nice. I am going back soon and staying here again.
