Cheap Sleep

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Had a very hard time finding the place. Once I arrived I was taken to another house down the street where I ended up staying. Really friendly owners and very helpful. It was a garden level apartment shared with two other people. About 15 minute walk to the old town (30 back up the hill but there is a bus). Clean, good wifi, decent kitchen. Nice view from the terrace.

Dink's Place Hostel

Hvar, Croatia

Great family-run hostel. Friendly and helpful people. Clean, wifi a bit spotty, Far enough away from the central town to get a quiet sleep, but easy to walk to town


Great hostel in the middle of Diocletian's Palace. Rooms and front door didn't have locks but there were lockers under the bed. "Luggage storage" is in the common area so it gets crowded by the afternoon. Clean bathrooms/rooms, a/c. Would happily return. No kitchen but they have a cheap restaurant and there is are markets nearby.

Hostel Indigo

Sibenik, Croatia

Very nice little hostel. Not a lot of choice in Sibenik but this was a great place to stay. Easy day-trip to Krka (they also organize excursions but I took the bus). Locks on the room doors and lockers (not the most secure lockers but they worked). Friendly staff. Showers were on the top floor (6th) so it was a bit of a trek, but not a big deal. Small hostel so never had to wait for showers/bathrooms. Easy to find for such windy little streets, look for signs on the walls in the town.

Hostel Elena

Zadar, Croatia

Great hostel with a really friendly owner. Took the time to show me the map and even explain how to get to the bus station when I left. Tried to get people to socialize together and go out for drinks. Even organizes cheap trips to plitvice lakes! Would definitely stay again. Only complaint is that there are only 3 bathrooms (1 per floor) so sometimes you have to wait a while.

Hotel Portacavana

Trieste, Italy

Good little hotel for a one night stopover. Floor was a little dusty but everything else was clean. Friendly staff. Tv signal a little poor, but most channels worked. Got wifi in my room.

Cinque Terre Holidays

Cinque Terre, Italy

Stayed in 7 bed dorm (actually an apartment with 7 beds crammed into one room). No atmosphere and was very difficult to meet people as a single traveler. Kitchen was basic but worked (needed to buy a lighter for the gas stove). Acceptable for just a place to sleep, good location close to the bottom of the hill in Riomaggiore (you will climb stairs no matter where you are in town!) and the boy who showed me my room offered to carry my heavy backpack, which was nice. Few electrical outlets.

PLUS Florence

Florence, Italy

Had a great time here. Pool and bar were a nice touch after a hot day out. Huge hostel, more like a hotel, but with a hostel crowd. Ensuite was great. Clean, quiet enough, a/c worked well. Close to everything in Florence, easily walkable, even after a night out!


Great location close to the Vatican and the metro. Rooms were spacious and clean. Friendly staff. Very small and might be difficult to meet people, not much atmosphere to the place. 'Kitchen' consisting of a fridge and microwave was nice. Would probably return if in Rome again.


Stayed one night Loved the ensuite bathroom. No lockers, but keyed entry to the room. Didn't sleep well, but more due to roommates. Breakfast of coffee, juice and croissant. Kitchen a bit chaotic but useable. Good value for Paris. Would stay again.

Struy Guest House

Inverness, Scotland

Stayed one night. Clean and fairly secure. In a quiet neighbourhood, but easy to walk to the city centre. No lockers in shared rooms. Only one bathroom

Stationmasters Hostel

Kyle of Lochalsh, Scotland

Stayed in a Private double room - gorgeous! Absolute best hostel I have visited. Excellent base to visit Skye and Kyle of lochalsh. Clean, bright, beautiful location on the water. Wonderful kitchen. Small and friendly. Best for mature travelers or couples/families, not a party place. While the train stops here, I think that anybody without a car would find the location inconvenient. There are no stores in Stromeferry.
