Nice hostel, great location, very friendly and helpful owners and clean rooms. Not much atmosphere, so if you want to party then go elsewhere. For me this was perfect though, great place to chill out for a night before i flew home.
We had a twin room which was hotel standard, but with all the advantes and facilities of this hostel. That said, it is a proper party place, so if you want to chill then not so great. Lovely 5th floor balcony, great for having a smoke and watching the craziness of the old town below. Staff were super helpful and booked us a bus and then the Hue - Hoi An motorbike hire, bag transfer and hostels at either end.
One of my favourite hostels over a 2 month trip - super chilled, loads of people wanting to have a good time, pool and table tennis etc. shame it's a 15 minute walk to the bottle shop. Dorms are fine.
Nice enough place for a couple nights in Brisbane, but dont expect to be blown away by the facilities. Staff are very friendly and they were happy to offer me tips on what to do in the city. The hostel is above a bar that serves good burgers, but nowhere else within a 5 minute walk really to eat. Quite close to lots of the "cultural" things in Brisbane, but best selling point is being 100m from the Greyhound stop.
We had a double bed, private room with a fan and was fine. ONly downside is if you stay Sat/Sun then you will be woken up at 5am by the market setting up outside on the main street. It's a great market, just not when you're shattered after climbing mt Kinabalu. Staff are friendly and very helpful, breakfast is okay. Location is perfect for a couple days in KK - would recommend

Perfect location, 2 minutes walk from the Old Town. Very secure and the owner came and met us when we arrived, gave us keys and showed us the apartment. Very friendly and spoke excellent English. Apartment was large, excellent value. Bedroom, bathroom and small lounge area with fridge and kettle (no kitchen available). Would absolutely recommend for a couple visiting Split on a moderate budget.
We stayed in a private room so didn't have the standard experience at Luka's (more of a social/party place, BBQ's in evenings etc). Our room was en suite, clean, comfortable and had a small balcony etc. Great value for money and only 5 minutes from the Old Town. Luka let us rent a scooter form him for the day for 200KN - this is less than they will charge you in town and it had a full tank of gas when we set off.
Maria is absolutely lovely, although doesn't speak any English (will just chatter away in Croat, but can make stuff understood). Our apartment was on the top floor with a shared kitchen and bathroom (both very clean) and a small balcony overlooking the Old Town. THIS APARTMENT IS LESS THAN 5 MINUTES WALK FROM THE OLD TOWN AND NEXT TO THE CABLE CAR. *** EXCELLENT LOCATION ***
One of the two/three hostels in the tourist-y area of Mumbai, the Travellers Inn is a great place to stay as a base to explore the city. Less than 10 minutes from VT train station (aka Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus) and alo close to Churchgagte station the rooms are clean, secure and the staff friendly. Don't be put off by the price - Mumbai is FAR more expensive than most of India and the Travellers Inn is excellent value for the location. Not a party atmosphere, would recc bar on the corner
Location and view make this one of the best (if not the best) places to stay in Jodhpur as a backpacker. Rooms are clean and cheap and the restaurant on the roof serves great food (try the porridge for breakfast!!!). Not a party hostel but lovely place to stay. It's a bit of a maze around there so get a rickshaw from the station for a few rupees as they all know where it is. 5 minute walk to the market and the trip to the Fort is walkable too (30 mins up the hill).
Great place to stay in jaipur, owners are very helpful and friendly and the rooms clean. There is a restaurant on the rooftop which is great for breakfast and dinner. Best masala chai in 3 month trip! Short rickshaw fmor the intercity bus station and the train station, and there are lots of rickshaw tour touts on the street outside. Dont pay more than 600Rs for a full day trip, but this is the best way to see the city without a doubt.
When I come back to KTM i'll be staying here for sure. The owner Khem is brilliant, free filtered water plus breakfast served to you up on the terraces (one for each floor of rooms, a great way to meet fellow guests and watch the morning tick by). It's about a 5 minute walk from Thamel - i view this as a plus as you can actually get some sleep. Area feels very safe, no issues whatsoever and would highly reccommend Elbrus Home.
Best place to stay in kathmandu if you're on a budget. 5 minute walk from central Thamel (tourist area with shops, bars etc) - this means you can actually sleep at night. If you stay in Thamel it'll be extremely loud and claustrophobic. Elbrus Home is the perfect distance. Breakfast is excellent and the owner, Khem, is very friendly and helpful. Cant reccommend it enough.
Clean rooms and helpful staff. Noodle bar on the corner is excellent - get the duck rice for 6MYR. Free wifi but signal is mainly in the downstairs lounge area, or there are a couple of free computers for use. The staff can sort trips to Tama Negara and other bits and pieces - good first port of call. Very close to chinatown and the markets there, and an easy walk from the nearby rail/metro station.
Clean, good rooms and good value for money. Grat palce to explore the town from and the staff are helpful in giving info on buses etc around the island.
Clean, helpful staff and good value for money. Near chinatown and the markets there. malaysian restaurant on the corner is great (6-7 ringgit for a meal), the nearby reggae bar is overpriced and highly overrated.
