Victoria Falls Backpackers

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

We had a great stay at the very eccentric and hugely welcoming Vic Falls Backpackers, made special with the help of Blessing, Ray, Linda, Tamara and the rest of the amazing staff. We left our car here for 2 days when we went to Zambia and never doubted its safety. It may not be the newest establishment, but it has everything you could need, and the staff are willing to help with anything. We would definitely recommend!

Jollyboys Backpackers

Livingstone, Zambia

After all the great reviews we have to admit that we were a bit disappointed. The room was nice, but the kitchen was horrifyingly dirty (with cockroaches crawling on the walls) and lacked basic cutlery, crockery and equipment - with only 1 fork, 2 mugs and 2 knives in a very busy hostel (bring your own equipment if you'll be cooking). Some of the staff were very nice (Clive, the driver, was brilliant), but we felt a bit unwelcome once at the hostel; this definitely caters more to big groups.

Bahaus Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey
100%

A brilliant hostel! The location (a stone's throw away from the Blue Mosque and the tram line) is perfect for sight-seeing; the staff members are all wonderful; the organised events (such as the walking tour off the beaten track and the pub crawl) are great; and the general atmosphere is just excellent. My favourite aspect of this hostel is the amazing rooftop bar and terrace where you have free breakfast each morning, and socialise over drinks (or a meal made by the lovely Stef) in the evening


Lausanne Guesthouse & Backpacker

Brilliant location - close to the central station, and easy to catch public transport anywhere for free (with the Lausanne Transport Card the hostel provides). Good kitchen facilities, but horrid bathroom set-up (with no privacy for showering). In all, a good stay.

Brussels Hostel Grand Place

Brussels, Belgium
66%

Amazing location, brilliant wifi in the rooms and comfortable beds. The major shortfall is the check-in procedure, where you have to go to another hostel to check in, which is a good 15 - 20 minute walk away (depending on how lost you get) and the fact that there is no common room or a social area.

A brilliant location - everything is walking distance. Facilities are all rather basic and the breakfast is quite meagre, but the pub crawl and arranged events are great. All in all, a good stay.

Antwerp Central Youth Hostel

A very comfortable stay and a good night's rest. The atmosphere was a little sterile, but this is a very clean and safe hostel, where breakfast is included.


International Budget Hostel

Amsterdam, Netherlands

This is an extremely basic hostel, that leans more towards being dirty and somewhat dingy. Great location though (close to the Museumplein and the Leidseplein) and good Wifi that works in the rooms. My opinion is that if you're only looking for a cheap bed (in a good location), this is the place for you; but if you're looking for a place with great character and atmosphere this is not the place.
