Island Vibe Backpackers

Jeffreys Bay, South Africa

Goede locatie, direct aan zee. Vanaf het 'Beachhouse' waar wij zaten keek je letterlijk vanuit je (prive) kamer uit op de oceaan. Restaurant is goed, je kunt zowel ontbijten, lunchen als avondeten (indien je op tijd inschrijft) hier tegen betaalbare prijzen. Minpunt: het WIFI is dramatisch. Enkel in de 'Internet room' en deel van de algemene ruimte is er signaal en een erg dramatisch signaal. Surflessen nemen is een aanrader, twee uurtjes voor 410 rand (kleine 30 euro).


Jembjo's is a good hostel. We had a really big bed in our private room. Breakfast is included (eggs, bread, jam, coffee, tea, fruit) which is nice and you can watch TV in the common room. The location is perfect, restaurants and supermarkt not too far away. We rented bikes to go to Knysa head's where you have a great view over the lagune and the ocean. Compared to other hostels, Jembjo's was a bit too quiet for us. Not a lot of backpackers here.

Hermanus Backpackers

Hermanus, South Africa

Prima hostel. Op loopafstand van het centrum van Hermanus. Vanuit daar kan je prachtig wandelen over de 'cliffs'. Grote algemene ruimte in dit hostel, waar je lekker kunt relaxen. 's Avonds mogelijkheid om deel te nemen aan een diner. Personeel is erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

Stumble Inn Backpackers Lodge

Stellenbosch, South Africa

We only spend two nights here, because we wanted to do the wine tour which was a lot of fun. Location of the hostel is perfect, close to the centrum and restaurants. We stayed in the second house of the hostel which was close to the hostel itself. The second night a lot of students were suddenly in our house, apparently for just the night. It was a bit too noisy, but after we told them they were more quiet.

Two Oceans Backpackers

Cape Town, South Africa

This hostel was alright. It was in the middle of the centrum, at Long Street. This is a street with restaurants and ho(s)tels. Our private room was quite small. The toilets were sometimes a bit dirty. The staff was helpfull. For Cape Town, Value for Money was good here.

Hostel Pisa

Pisa, Italy

Great hostel. Location is alright, although the centre of Pisa quite far but you can take a bus since the station is close. They have a buffet diner, which is nice and not too expensive. You are not aloud to bring your own booze but you can buy wine and beers in the hostel. The common area in the garden is good and there were a lot of other backpackers when we were there which was fun.

PLUS Camping Michelangelo

Florence, Italy

I was here before in 2011. The place has not really changed since then although they closed the supermarket where you could buy cheap beers before. I really missed this time, since there is also no fridge to cool your beers and wines. Our tents were alright and the location is nice with the view over Florence (close to the Michelangelo lookout spot). If you ever take the bus here always enter the bus at the front because you have to stamp your tickets there. Otherwise you will get a fine like us

Jacobs Inn

Dublin, Ireland

The Jacobs Inn Hostel was perfect. It is only 10 minutes walk to Temple Bar District, the dorm rooms are fine, the staff is very helpful and breakfast is included! I recommend the free walking tour starting every morning (leaving 10.10am in the morning). You get to learn a lot about the history of Dublin in three hours time. Perfect if you are in Dublin for a few days.

Great and glad you enjoyed the walking tour which is always a great way to start your stay in Dublin

Citotel Nordotel

Lille, France

We only stayed here for one night which was fine. It is close to the train station where you can take a metro to the city centre of Lille. Breakfast is included.

Yep! Hostel

Budapest, Hungary

Location of Yep Hostel is perfect! Right next to the Jewish Synagogue and quite close to Szimpla (one of the best ruined pubs in Budapest). We arrived at the hostel early in the morning. We did send an email to the hostel two weeks before to notice them. Apparently the hostel owner didn’t expect us, because he was really cranky. We had a private room which was really big and we shared a kitchen and bathroom with two other couples. Everything was clean. The room was on the other end of the street

Maybe you didn't receive our mail or it went to the spams, but we sent you our answer. You have to understand it is not possible to kick out the previous guest at 6:00 in the morning because of somebody wants the check in to the same room at that time. We didn't do it with you also, wasn't it fine to sleep until 10:00, tell us honestly? As a solution for similar cases in the future, you should book the previous night also and you can arrive even at 4:00 am if you wish. Thank you for your stay!

Hostel Indigo Belgrade

Belgrade, Serbia

We had a great stay!. The private room was big! My girlfriend twisted her ankle when we walked from the train station to the hostel (takes 15 minutes), but the people of the hostel were very friendly, gave her some ice and advice where to buy some bandage. The location is perfect, 3 minutes walk from Republic Square and if you cross the street you will be in Skadarlija, the bohemian quarter with a lot of restaurants. The lady of the hostel did our laundry (4-5 euros including use of the dryer).

Hostel Kojic-Bar

Bar, Montenegro

Because we missed our bus from Dubrovnik to Bar, we arrived one day later than expected. We called the owner of the hostel, so he knew. When we arrived the hostel was full, but the brother of the owner had a spare room in his hostel not too far away which was a fine hostel.

Apartments Panorama

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Apartment Panorama does offers what is say it offers: a fantastic view from your balcony over Dubrovnik! We had a private room, which was quite big. If I am not mistaken, there are 3 rooms in total of which 2 have the beautiful view. When you arrive at the bus station, make sure you take bus 3 to the apartment. If you are going to walk it takes at least 30 minutes of climbing. You can walk to Old Town, but when you return to the apartment take the bus (3). The bus stop is near to the apartment.

Hostel Enjoy

Sarajevo, Bosnia And Herzegovina

Fine hostel. Location is perfect, a five minutes walk from the train station and ca 15 minutes from the city centre. Jasmina, the hostess, is very friendly. She might offer you to visit the Tunnel Museum which is recommendable. The museum is ca 7 kilometres outside of the city centre, so it was very helpful that she arranged a taxi drive. The hostel is in a flat and there is room for 8 people (6 in a dorm and one private room) in total. We had a private room, which was quite small but still fine

Neverland Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

Goed hostel. Top dat het ontbijt erbij is inbegrepen, al is het pas vanaf 9 uur 's ochtends (als je echt vroeg op pad wil, kan dit lastig zijn). Verder staat er altijd koffie en thee klaar en kan je prima zitten in de lobby van het hostel. Vriendelijk personeel. Kamers zijn eenvoudig. In de privé kamers staan 3 bedden en een kast en dat is het. Wel 'slechts' twee stopcontacten. Per verdieping een douche en een toilet, je kan dus altijd nog uitwijken naar een andere verdieping :-)

Queen Elizabeth Chelsea

London, England

Great hostel, location was alright (10-15 minutes walk from Fulham Broadway station), the staff was really friendly and the Value for Money great. Although their administration can be a bit messy (in my room there were suddenly 7 people subscribed although there were only 6 beds), they offered me a private room which was a huge upgrade. Breakfast is 1,50 pounds extra, but quite alright. London is expensive, but Queen Elizabeth is not at all!

Luxembourg City Hostel

Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

Koffie tijdens het ontbijt was niet te drinken!

Hostel Beauty

Rome, Italy

Really friendly staff, the brother of the owner replaced the owner during his vacation but was really helpful. The neighbourhood is not that great and feels a bit unsafe. Breakfast is included, but you have to go to a bar close by. Take notice that only croissant, cake and coffee (or cappucino) is included in the price. There is airco, but be careful. My girlfriend got sick because we used the airco a bit too much also during the night.

All Days Hostel

Toronto, Canada

Hostel was nice. The beds in the private rooms were kind of small. Although you have to share the bathroom, they were large and good to use.
