Hotel Las Gardenias

El Remate, Guatemala

Excellent place with a wonderful peaceful atmosphere! have a good restaurant few meters away.

Villa Esthela

Antigua, Guatemala

Hostel was alright, though the staff could have been nicer. Other than that - one more bathroom on the second floor would do no harm, as there were queues quite often.

Posada del Abuelito

San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico

Excellent place! good breakfast, wi-fi, very nice rooms (though a bit chilly at night), helpful staff, and a room with a fireplace. amazing, especially for this price!

Kin Balam CabaƱas

Palenque, Mexico

Good location at the entrance to the national park, cabanas are ok, pretty clean, so are the bathrooms. Big drawback is the check-in time (15:00) - you check out at 11:00. At night you can hear the monkeys in the jungle which is pretty awesome. Staff is a minus,

El Jardin

Merida, Mexico

Wonderful stay, and special thanks to Barry who makes everybody feel incredibly welcome in the hostel!

Hostel La Candelaria

Valladolid, Mexico

Definitely one of the best hostels we stayed in Mexico, really nice atmoshpere, very good lolcation and staff that was helpful with everything.

Smyle Inn

New Delhi, India

Good location, clean hotel, poor staff - nice but they didn't know too much.

Hotel Kalyan

Jaipur, India

Hot water, pretty clean, staff basically doesn't speak English. Good location and very very good food.


Increadibly nice owner. One of us had some health issues and he helped us out. Also helped to arrange taxi and advised on seeing Agra. Really worth going! We stayed there over Divali and the stay was really good. Also a clean place. One minor flaw is that it's a bit far from key attractions but rickshaws and tuk tuks are super cheap.

The Orchha Resort

Orchha, India

We had this place booked in advance and this was the most expensive yet the worst hotel on our way. Upon arrival the rude reception guy demanded we pay 24% extra as "taxes have not been included". According to hotel's description on hostelworld we hade romm rate with breakfast, it turned out we were refused to receive it. The only hotel in India where we didn't have hot water. The tents are shabby and dirty, bugs around. Terrible, terrible and rude staff. Location is perfect but it's not enough

Shiva Guest House Varanasi

Varanasi, India

We didn't get the room we had booked, but a different one and the hostel charged us much less. Moreover we arrived at 5 a.m. instead of 12:00 and we got the room instantly without additional charge. The owners are helpful, the hostel is very clean, hot shower 24/7. Perfect location just 5 minutes from the main ghat. All in all 4/5.

New Solitary Lodge

Pokhara, Nepal

Very clean and nice room, good location, but most importantly wonderful and warm owners. Amazingly nice and helpful people. Green and peaceful garden and roof top view over the HImalayas. Definitely worth recommending! Thank you for a very good stay!

Trekkers Home

Kathmandu, Nepal

Nothing particularly special about this hostel but also nothing to complain about.

Amsterdam Hotelboat

Amsterdam, Netherlands

When coming to Amsterdam we wanted to stay at the hostelboat and we do not regret it by any means. We had read some comments that the rooms are tiny and were afraid of that but that wasn't that bad! The hostel is super clean, perfectly located the owners are very nice and helpful, breakfast was good as well. And the atmosphere of living on a boat is pretty cool as well. True recommendation!


A very good hotsel, perfect location, helpful staff.

West Lake Youth House

Hangzhou, China

Excellent choice. Perfect location, just next to the West Lake. Really nice and helpful staff. Very clean, large dorms. One of the best hostels on our trip to China. And we booked it at the rate of 15 yueans a night.

Monkey Jane's Guesthouse

Yangshuo, China

I have absolutely no clue why Lonely Planet even mentions this place. Without saying how bad it is in reality. Location is fine but to be fair Yangshuo is such a small place that all the hostels have more less the same location. The staff doesn't seem to be really nice Dorms are cramped, there's mold on the walls, bathrooms are dirty and so are the bedsheets. The rooftop bar - fine but overrated. Stay away from this place.


A very good hostel, perfect locaction. Clean bathrooms. Staff was ok. I would definitely recommend staying in that place.


Location of the hostel was perfect, but most importantly tha staff was great and extremely helpful. Special thanks to John :)
