Good and bad points to this hostel. Location is beautiful, overlooking a rice paddy, on an attractive lane with easy access to bars, restaurants and tourist facilities. Nice bar with a great view, nice outdoor lounge area. Good place for meeting other backpackers. Staff were fine except for the reception lady, who was rude. Power sockets didn't work in the dorm, wifi was unusable and bathroom was dirty. Shoes are worn indoors. On balance I wouldn't stay there again.
This is a great guesthouse - the staff are friendly, the place is spotlessly clean, the rooms are wonderfully cold with the air conditioning, there's a pleasant and good-sized pool in a leafy garden with lounge areas, free coffee, free filtered water, a kitchen and wifi. Everything you need! I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Sanur.
A really good guesthouse, friendly staff, good location, cheap beer and a great place to meet people in the bar. Recommended.
Great hostel, great local staff, meet loads of people - recommended if you're in Phnom Penh.
A lovely place, great local staff who were very welcoming and friendly. Very near the centre, close to the old town and pub street. Recommended.
Great place, enjoyed my stay there. Clean, free vodka after 9pm, aircon in the rooms, helpful staff and met lots of people. Recommended if you're in Vientiane.
I loved this hostel - friendly service, great cafe / bar / lounge for meeting people, well-priced menu, comfortable dorms. A good experience.
The Old Observatory is an interesting hostel with great views over the city, very helpful staff and a pleasant roof-top bar / restaurant / chill-out area with free-flow beer each evening - as much as you can drink - for only 20Y! I enjoyed my time there. Could be cleaner (it was quite dusty), and you'll need to catch buses to see the sights. Would I stay there again? Happily.
I love this hostel - the staff are great (I was invited to join them for dinner more than once), the building is beautiful, the surrounding hutong is interesting and there's a subway nearby. I will stay here every time I'm in Beijing.
I enjoyed my stay here, there was a great bar and outdoor seating area, and the staff were very helpful. Located near the Sanlitun bar district which was great. The hostel arranges trip to the Great Wall for a good price. Unfortunately there's no facilities to store or cook your own food and no free drinking water.
I always stay here when in Hong Kong, its a great hostel, well located, good facilities and an excellent place to meet people. Bit disappointed on this last occasion by some of the staff - one was rude on my arrival, another made little effort to help me with an issue I had, and the overnight staff don't make any effort to keep the lounge area clean, so first thing in the morning its pretty messy before the cleaning staff arrive. That being said, the staff are predominantly friendly.
I had a great time at Chocolate Box, it will certainly be the hostel I choose the next time I'm in Taipei. Friendly staff, nice lounge areas, good for meeting people, nearby night market and MRT.
I had a great stay at FuQi and found the staff to be warm and welcoming. They helped with all my queries and also invited me to join them for dinner in a local restaurant. If you're in Tainan then I recommend this hostel.
I enjoyed my time here and would be happy to stay there again the next time I'm in Taipei
The hostel is clean, the staff helpful, the location good for the metro, Longshan temple and nearby nightmarkets. There's a nice lounge area in the loft but not many people use it, so the atmosphere was not as good as I hoped. A quiet but enjoyable stay here.
A nice enough hostel room within a hotel. The staff are helpful and friendly but don't speak very good English. The place is clean, and I met a lot of interesting backpackers there. The location is good also, very near the subway and a local market and temple.
A beautiful ryokan, complete with rice paper walls, tatami flooring, zen garden and onsen. Very good price for the experience of a traditional japanese inn. The staff were friendly and it's a good place to meet other backpackers. Recommended.
I had a wonderful time at the hostel, the owner - Miki - was very friendly and helpful, the place was spotlessly clean, and I met some great people there. I highly recommend this hostel if you're staying in Kanazawa.
