Excellent security and great location near Temple Bar and Trinity College. Atmosphere was quite relaxed - people didn't really talk to each other. Free breakfast was nice and cooking facilities got used by lots of guests.

Guest House Kinta

Kyoto, Japan

The PIN code to access the girls' dorm was a nice touch. The beds are huge and very comfortable, and though the WiFi was a bit dodgy, there was a Mac downstairs for all to use. However, don't stay here if you're allergic to dogs - there was an adorable one running around!

Utano is not really suited for lone travelers. The 11.30pm curfew and location in a North-West Kyoto suburb make it very pretty but not suited to nights on the town. It would be great for groups of schoolkids, but not for adults. There isn't WiFi in the rooms, and no showers (only a really nice onsen, which might not be for everyone). But the staff were nice and breakfast was reasonably priced.

Khaosan Kyoto Theater

Kyoto, Japan
94%

Theater isn't on Google Maps, so it can be a pain to get to - make sure to take a map with you, as taxi drivers don't know either! But it's in the heart of Kyoto, and the attached bar is awesome. The staff were lovely and the atmosphere was great, especially in the downstairs bar that's open at the weekend.

Jiyujin

Kyoto, Japan

The staff were absolutely lovely, and the building is in traditional Japanese style, built by one of the receptionist's fathers! However, this isn't a party hostel: it was full of domestic tourists and older people, not so much backpackers, but it made a nice change of pace.

Not the hostel for socialising, unless your version of socialising involves smoking weed. But as a cheap bed in the centre of Amsterdam I can't complain.

Very clean, very good location with excellent travel links, and within walking distance of lots of attractions - and the on site bar was a nice bonus!

Asakusa is a lovely bit of Tokyo near the Sumida River and Khaosan Tokyo Annex is a fairly short walk from the metro station, which has direct stations to Shibuya and Narita Airport. The hostel is very comfortable, with good beds and very affable staff.

J-Hoppers in Hiroshima was incredibly nice to stay in. The atmosphere was lovely, there were sightseeing guides all over the place and the walls were decorated with pictures of other happy hostel guests. The staff were happy to point us to the best okonomiyaki places and bars, and I would definitely stay here again if I returned to Hiroshima.

Hotel Mikado

Osaka, Japan

Though Hotel Mikado is in the less picturesque bit of Osaka, it is close to Spa World (which was recommended highly) and not far from Shin-Imamiya station. The rooms were comfy and also very cheap, and the common area in the reception downstairs was very neat and the staff were very helpful.

Takama Guest House

Nara, Japan
91%

Firstly - all travellers going to Japan should make time to visit Nara. It is absolutely beautiful. Secondly - Takama Guesthouse is very nice to stay in, close to Kintetsu Nara station and a fairly short walk from JR Nara. I was only there for a night but it was incredibly pleasant and the free green tea was a nice touch! Possibly the comfiest bed I slept in, in the whole of Japan!

Hostel Mundo Chiquito

There was a huge trunk by each bunk with a padlock, in which you can easily store a large suitcase or rucksack. The beds were very comfortable and it was lovely to walk past Nijo-jo (the World Heritage Site castle) every day on the way to the bus stop! The staff were lovely, the showers were good, and the common area was very pleasant to hang out in.

Lub d Bangkok Siam Square

Bangkok, Thailand
80%

The hostel was very nice - it was clean, close to central attractions and had excellent showers. However, the price of a twin room was much higher than in many of the other hostels I stayed in and it felt rather clinical. It was not the best value for money, but might be if you book a dorm room instead.

This youth hostel was in a good location within walking or cycling distance of many of the famous wats. The hostel itself was a little lacking in personality and the room looked like it was in a shed, but it was very comfortable.

Old Penang Guesthouse was a fine place to stay in, in the middle of George Town. The twin room was spacious and the laundry service was excellent, and it was nice to have breakfast provided. The atmosphere was a little lacking but it was a boon to be able to connect to the WiFi all over Penang, not just in the hostel, thanks to the Penang Free WiFi code provided.

Step Inn Guest House and Hostel

I stayed in a twin room with my friend and it was very cheap, even by Malaysian prices! It was fairly easy to access and close to a nice Hindu temple but seeing a rat running around the common area slightly marred my impression.
