MEININGER Salzburg City Center

Salzburg, Austria

if you're a backpacker and want to meet others - dont stay here. this was like a weird hotel with some dorm rooms thrown in - way too many children and families...that being said, the staff were helpful and kind, the WiFi worked perfect in room. Toilet and shower were separated in dorm room - less waiting. little far out from city centre but there is a bus stop across the street. also - the room I was in looked way better than the photo up there on hostelworld - my room was actually nice...

Hotel Brivio

Milan, Italy

It's a cheap hotel outside the city centre. can't really expect too much. the wifi was really weak in room. the bed was alright. the only positive was that it was essentially across the street from a subway station - made getting around easy. also - in the area of the hotel, restaurants are EXTREMELY LIMITED. it's in a weird area with nothing going on...

David Inn

Florence, Italy

I think it's important to separate the owner from the hostel. Nadia is wonderful - no doubt. Friendly, kind, outgoing, takes an interest in your stay. The hostel has pros and cons. Pros - great location. Cons - dorms have no locks, lockers arent big enough for backpacks, only one shower, poor WiFi in room, directions to hostel from train station were terrible (Pro tip - ignore them - trust me. Ask someone how to get to the "Duomo" at the station. Once there, ask someone where "via Ricasoli" is.)

Funny Palace Hostel

Rome, Italy

Wonderful stay. WiFi worked perfectly in room. Very close to the train station with excellent directions. Owner/staff (?) Sat down and showed me how to get everywhere in Rome when I checked in. Rooms were spacious. Wish there were lockers big enough for bags (just small ones available). Air Con worked as well. Free bottle of wine at check in (and for the people complaining about the quality - really?!?! Its a free botttle of wine!! What are you honestly expecting. Wine is wine. Just drink it.)

Generator Venice

Venice, Italy

It's a big hostel. 8 bed room was tiny - super cramped. Lockers were big enough for bags - bring your own lock and hope yours isn't broken like mine was (couldn't lock my stuff since the latch was broken). WiFi worked perfectly in room. Quite far from the train station (45 minute water bus ride) but only two stops away from St Mark's square across the river. Waterbusses run all night from St. Mark's square to the hostel's stop (although after 11pm-ish the frequency is once every 30-60 minutes)


I honestly can't remember staying here - all these places just blend together after a while. I'm sure it was good though. I only care about WiFi in room and if I stayed here that means it worked. So yah....20 more Hostelworld points in the bank for this one. Cha-ching! Daddy needs a new totebag!

Maverick City Lodge

Budapest, Hungary

Big hostel that felt more like a hotel. Check in took way to long - girl on the desk didn't know what she was doing. Privacy curtains felt like getting your own room for a dorm bed price. Beds were comfy. Wifi worked excellently in room. Lockers were huge (bring a lock). Not much of a "hostel" atmosphere though for those looking for that. Each bed had its own light and two sockets which was great. I'd probably come back.

Dear guest, Sorry for the problem at the reception. Our staff has changed since, and we also put more effort into the training of the newcomers. Otherwise we are not a party hostel, but we provide regular social events on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. We will try to implement more weekly occasions to improve this.

A Wild Elephants Hostel

Bratislava, Slovakia

Great hostel. Amazing location - hostel is basically in Old Town Square. Staff are super friendly and are fellow travellers who are always ready for a good time and organizing nightly activities. It's like a little family staying there. WiFi was perfect in room. Would stay here again.

Franz Kafka Hostel

Prague, Czech Republic

Excellent stay at a great hostel. Location was amazing - literally 30 seconds walk to main Old Town Square - you probably can't get any closer for the price. The owner was super friendly and nice. WiFi worked perfect in rooms. Room was clean, well maintained and spacious. If I come back to Prague, this will be my first choice to stay again.

A&O Berlin Hauptbahnhof

Berlin, Germany

It's fine for what it is. Nothing immediately stands out as amazing. Its a cheap bed near a train station. WiFi was free and worked perfectly in room. Toilet and shower in room were separate which was nice not having to wait really. Bit of a younger party minded crowd so be warned.


For Paris it's fine. Location is near two subway stops which is convenient since its far out from the city centre (but you're not going to find better prices closer).it's a party hostel so be aware. Lot of up late at night roommates if that's your thing. WiFi was perfect in rooms. Privacy curtains were nice. Each bed has AC outlets (not sure why others have been saying USB plugs...). Nice big lockers under the beds - bring a lock. No complaints about free breakfast - decent spread for the price!

Culture 22

Taipei, Taiwan

Great hostel. Excellent location. Amazingly friendly staff. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Taipei.


Penang, Malaysia

The best hostel I've stayed at? Yes. My only complaint was that I didn't stay longer! The owner is the nicest man in the world - I arrived a couple hours before check in and he sat with me for 20 minutes with a map and pointed out things to do before I could check in. Was always smiling and asked me about things I did each day with a genuine interest! Air con works. Washrooms and bedrooms are spotless. WiFi works no problem. Located a minute away from a main bus stop that will take you anywhere.

Paradiso Bed&Breakfast

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Good hostel. Great location - less than one minute from Bukit Bitang monorail station. Very clean. Secure (24 hour access - hostel locked by electronic pin number at night). Room was spacious. A/C worked no problem. WiFi was definitely spotty - couldn't connect in my room - only the common area. Hostel owner seemed like a nice guy but was definitely overworked since it was a national holiday and he had no staff - even so he still took time to answer questions and help me book a cab.

Gap Year Hostel

Singapore, Singapore

Located just down the street from Boon Keng subway stop - centrally located - 20 minute subway or less to all the main areas of town (bout an hour and a bit to the airport though - be advised when leaving). Staff were super helpful and friendly. Could have been a little cleaner (certainly wasn't the worst though). Hot water, air con, WiFi in rooms - check, check, check! 24 hour access by electronic key card. Wonderful hostel. Would stay here again.

Me Mates Place

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Probably one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Staff are wonderful. Everything is super clean (with daily housekeeping!). Nice little restaurant on the main floor. Pretty centrally located in Phnom Pehn which makes it easy to get just about anywhere. My only complaint is that WiFi (which was free) didn't seem to work above the main floor. Would be nice to get it in the rooms. Otherwise - an absolutely wonderful 4 nights I spent here.

Mojito House

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Good hostel for what you're paying for. Staff were nice and friendly. WiFi was free and worked in rooms. Mattress could have been a bit nicer - but you get what you pay for. Good location. Easy to find. This is a fine place for the backpackers on a budget crowd. If I'm ever in Chiang Mai, I'll be sure to stay here again.


Bangkok, Thailand

Pretty standard. Great location - right on Khao San Road. Easy to get to. Can be loud from the noise from the street- bring some earplugs and you'll be fine. Single room is quite small and only comes with an overhead fan - didn't really bother me. WiFi is free and works in the rooms. Bed was comfy and room/bathrooms were clean. If you're just looking for a cheap place to stay for a for a few nights in Bangkok without any frills, this place works great.

Sam Won Jang

Busan, South Korea

Great location - just a couple minute walk to the subway and right by the hustle and bustle of the fish market. Pretty far away from the beach if that's your thing - it wasn't for me but I can see that being a pain for some people. Good room. Good mattress. Friendly staff. Great price.
