Nomads Westend

Sydney, Australia

This hostel is in a good location and has lots going on but is a bit shambolic with a dirty and poorly equipped kitchen. But is good value for Sydney and a good place to meet people.

Hi Nicola, Great to hear from you. We have just bought all new equipment and fixed all stoves so everything is up and running. We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels. The Nomads Westend Team


Excellent hostel! The best one we have stayed at in Australia. Great kitchen, clean rooms, free pool table, free pick up from the bus and we didn't even ask! And we nearly learned to surf too...

Aquarius Backpackers Byron Bay

Byron Bay, Australia

A good party hostel, nice bar and good location near the beach


Bangkok, Thailand

Nice hostel right near the Skytrain, and food stalls on the street nearby. Good clean showers, free breakfast (cornflakes / toast) and free use of PCs.

OKAY Guesthouse

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Good location and decent fan rooms, 3 PCs you can use if you don't have your own laptop, helpful staff booked us onward bus travel and our bags were looked after when we went off for a couple of nights.

Prohm Roth Guesthouse

Siem Reap, Cambodia

A great hostel with very helpful staff, near the pubs but not too near! We had a great day at the temples by tuk tuk. They booked a boat to Phnom Penh for us. And when our boat pick up was late they phoned up the company to check everything was OK, and they prepared a takeaway breakfast for us as we were leaving so early. We really enjoyed staying here.

Vy Khanh Hostel

Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Excellent hostel! The family who run the hostel are so friendly and helpful. They helped us book a lovely Mekong Delta trip and also booked our bus on to Siem Reap. The location is great, in the main backpacker area but tucked down an alley so not too noisy. The double room was spacious and clean and we thought it was great value.

Dear Guests, Thank you for your comment. We love to see you again. Warm regards from Vy Khanh Guesthouse, Ms Vy


We loved this hostel so much. It's in a really great location right by Hoan Kiem Lake but is also set back from the street so is not too noisy. The staff are brilliant, so helpful and friendly, and our double room was lovely, comfortable and clean. The trip to Halong Bay they organised for us was great. We would definitely stay here again, we felt very welcome and well looked after.

The Hump Hostel

Kunming, China

Great location right in the centre of Kunming - the only down side is that it's quite noisy but that's what you get being in the centre! The bar/restaurant is great, good food and drinks and a good vibe. There's lots of info available about local transport and day trips.


Sim's is the best hostel we have stayed in! The staff are very helpful and friendly, they did so much to help us. They were refurbishing the restaurant and bar when we stayed but this did not really affect our stay. The food is great and they have a great DVD collection! The location is not central but is great for getting to the north train station and also easy on the bus to the main bus station. And the bus links are good.


This hostel is in a great location on Nanluogo Xiang, and close to the new metro line. Our double room was nice and the staff were very helpful, and we could have a decent hot shower any time of day (great to have in the Beijing winter!)
