The Meeting Point Hostel

Barranquilla, Colombia

My girlfriend and I just stayed one night, as we had a 7am flight the next morning. The owner was extremely helpful in finding somewhere to eat and even allowed us to pay in USD as we were running low on peso's. He also woke up at 4am to wake us up and order us a taxi. He pre-negotiatted the price and saved us some money. Overall great place to stay.

The Dreamer Hostel

Santa Marta, Colombia

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time here. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Fantastic location and great value. We loves that they had a pool and plenty of hammocks!

Alaska Backpackers Inn

Anchorage, USA

Clean, spacious, and no frills (private room = studio apartment). Just what we needed; somewhere to crash, close to downtown, not comfortable enough to want to lounge all day inside after running a marathon! Very kind front desk (although the young woman was not too knowledgeable on "insider Anchorage" tips - she sent us to the visitor center ... uh, thanks?). Loved the chickens and bunnies. Slightly disappointed no deadbolt on the door to our room.

Books Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

We had a blast. Very diverse group of people and it was a party atmosphere which was what we were looking for.

Zurich, Switzerland

Wow, what a great place! The cafe bar was bustling and quite fun, the dorm we stayed in was fabulous and clean with lockers (!). The location is unreal (you just hop on the train from the airport, walk about 10 min and you're there!) and its on a strip of lively bars. I would most certainly stay here again - thank you!

Boomerang Hotel

Luxor, Egypt

Wow! This was an amazing hostel, steps away from the train station and near the VERY tasty Sofra restaurant. The tour they set us up on to see Valley of the Kings was incredible and with a very reputable (written up in Lonely Planet) guide Aladdin! The facilities are out of this world and they keep it super clean. The rooftop bar is a much needed escape from the tourism hungry people of Luxor.

Thanks for your review. We are happy that you enjoyed the tour and we are especially happy that you enjoyed the roof. happy travel

Hotel Acropole

Alexandria, Egypt

The entrance is up an ally (and was difficult for our cab driver to find; signage could be a lot better - hint, if they take you to the Hotel Metropole, you are right around the corner!) but our room looked out over the Med Sea. The library is within walking distance - as is the Citadel if you want to walk a long the water. Alexandria was by far my favorite Egyptian city, so much more laid back than Cairo.

Dina's Hostel

Cairo, Egypt

It would be very helpful if you had a list of local places to go (good restaurants, sheesha, shopping, etc) - it was tough being in Cairo for such a short time and not knowing which shops were reputable, safe and nearby.
