Excellent location for a good price. Good tours and events run. Showers and toilets a little run down, but the hostel is under new management with plans to redevelop so hopefully this will change. Main issue was with one of the staff. She was very loud and obnoxious at 5am, coming into our room drunk and disrupting sleep for guests. The next morning, she was extremely rude when we decided to eat slowly and wait to do washing up. Almost ruined our experience of an otherwise good hostel!

Loved the events that the hostel ran. Very nice staff, clean and quiet hostel in a good location, although a little far from the main centre. My main concern was that there are only 3 functional bathrooms for the dorm rooms, which led to long waits in the morning. Also, the hostel was not well heated, leading to many cold nights. Still great in the area though, and I would highly recommend!

Excellent - no faults at all! Only issue may be that it is not particularly quiet, but not too bad.

Wonderful hostel with very friendly staff. A little out from the main tourist strip, but needed to acclimatise and rest after 21 hour bus ride from Lima. Highly recommend!

Wonderful place to stay! Very friendly staff, clean, quiet, comfortable, good breakfast, relaxed communal room with a vast array of DVDs and games on offer...everything you could want! Not a party hostel mind...

The only issue is the lack of a communal area to socialise with fellow travellers. Otherwise, a wonderful place located opposite a very good Indian restaurant in the heart of Little India, and with great staff and rooms. A great stay!

Decent for the night, but little atmosphere and staff not very attentive or on the ball, taking hours to deal with simple questions.

Grann's Hostel, Kuta, Indonesia

We did thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere and staff in this hostel, and it was a good stay. Yes, it is far from the beach, but we wanted some peace and quiet from the hustle of Kuta, so it worked. However, the water for the showers and toilets rarely worked, leading to unsanitary conditions. The wi-fi did not work well at all, with at least 10 of us huddled around the main hub looking for signal. Finally, overbooking meant people were allowed to sleep on the floor, causing many to trip in the night

An excellent place to stay. The family here are wonderful, the tours are great value for money, the breakfast is excellent, and the room was always clean and tidy. A great location, just away from the main backpacker street, with plenty of choices for eating and drinking at your doorstep. We had a great time, thank you!

Han Tang Inn Hostel, Xi'an, China

A brilliant stay, and a lovely, clean and well situated hostel. The only downside was the security. The doors were left open pretty much all day without checks on who was coming in or out. My camera went missing from the back of my chair whilst I was on the computers. Luckily, it turns out it was one of the guests who was checking out in a hurry and accidentally picked it up (off a chair...), and the response from the hostel at the news that a camera was missing was amazing!

Overall, the staff are very helpful and the hostel itself is clean and well presented. The hostel runs excellent tours, which are good value for money, and benefits from being close to restaurants, the subway and attractions such as Tianammen Square and the Forbidden City. However, be warned that many of the clientel of this hostel, and surrounding locations frequent the bar until 4 or 5am, disupting many people's sleep. If you are looking for a part hostel, look no further! Not for us though!

The owner was always on hand to help us with our travels around Jeju. He was always curtious and willing to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The area is fantastic, with plenty of bars and restaurants, and near to good transport links to visit all areas of the island. A clean, safe, enjoyable stay in an excellent hostel. We would recommend this to everyone!
