Best hostel I stayed in USA by far.. Great location, always felt safe even alone and in the dark during the 10 minute walk to the subway. Staff are great! The nights out they plan along with free food and in general encouraging everyone to socialise was brilliant. The free breakfast also the best I have had! Stay here!

40 Berkeley Hostel, Boston, USA

26th Oct 2013

Not a bad place to stay in Boston and includes free breakfast. The common areas were great with a movie room and dining area, lots of places to chill out. The bedrooms reminded me of an old university halls and then bathrooms were nice enough but depending on where you are can be round the corner from your room. Overall we enjoyed our stay but it was just average! Short walk to the metro and good bars/restaurants so location was a definite plus.

Loved this hostel for just the one night as backpacks are kept downstairs and only a rucksack is allowed in the bedroom. We didn't mind this as we were only stopping over before heading to another place so went for the cheapest. Very good value for money. Excellent common area. Dorms and bathrooms are just like home, nothing fancy but nice enough. I would definitely stay again for a short time. Also good location with shops/bars/metro around the corner (2 mins walk)

ACBB Hostel Niagara, Niagara Falls, Canada

23rd Oct 2013

This is the place to stay at Niagara Falls. It was the nicest, loveliest hostel for under $40 a night! We saved a ridiculous amount of money by not staying in one of the expensive hotels. They also gave great advice on what else to see including the river and the whirlpool which was well worth listening to. In the evening some of the staff also took us to a really nice local bar, taps where the special included a beer and was only $10! The breakfast was yummy as well - I can't recommend enough.

Great hostel in the best location! Don't be put off by the 16 bed dorm as it doesn't feel like 16 in a room. Staff were really a bonus as they were so helpful and friendly. Each night has a theme including free beer and free meals which is a good way to meet others. The only downside for me was not the best shower and bunk beds a little creaky which are tiny tiny things. Definitely recommend!

14th Oct 2013

Good hostel and minutes away from the metro which then took another 10/15 minutes to Times Square so although not in manhattan it wasn't long at all to get there. Shops across the road. The kitchen and common area was really cool in the basement but the actual dorm room and en suite was quite small. A light for each bed would also be really useful but overall would recommend!

Niras Bankoc Cultural Hostel, Bangkok, Thailand

21st Sep 2013

This was a very nice hostel with excellent staff. 15 minute walk to backpackers area which is perfect as you will get a good nights sleep if needed. In comparison to other hostels around South East Asia this wasn't my favourite as there is not much space to meet others with only 1 sofa in the TV room and only a few tables for breakfast but still nice enough!

Amazing hostel! Easily one of the best iv stayed in with great staff, swimming pool, internet, pool table, football table, fitness classes, good food and all of that is just a bonus. Advice on tours and transport is also brilliant! Try the food walk where they take you to the market and for $7 learn about/eat local food including brain! Make sure you book here as it is always full for good reason.

This is one of my favorite hostels and made the stay in KL so lovely.. The common areas are so homely and nice - you can either chill out on the sofas or drink up on the rooftop bar. Location was right next to the MRT and opposite Chinatown - shops and fast food close if needed! The only downside is the wifi didnt reach the 3rd floor but rarely in the room! Such a nice place - I stayed here twice :)
