Khaosan Immjai

Bangkok, Thailand

5 min walk from Khaosan Road, 25 min walk from Grand Palace/other temples. Very friendly and helpful staff. Extremely clean and spacious rooms and bathrooms, though the hot water didn't really work for me. Socket and reading light at each bed. Lockers need own padlock. Not much of a common area to meet other backpackers. Price is a little steep considering how big the dorms are, and they overcharge for the airport transfer. Would recommend as it is very comfortable.

Palio (Haad Rin) Hostel

Koh Phangan, Thailand

Amazing staff and location. Unfortunately that's about all the positive things I can say. Our room was an 8bed dorm that was actually 2 bunkbeds with a double mattress on the top bunk and two single mattresses on the bottom. Room was small and never cleaned. Hot water/shower barely worked, electricity went out multiple times. The roof leaked one day when there was a big storm. Would recommend if only staying for 1 or 2 nights, otherwise find somewhere else.

Pak-Up Hostel

Krabi, Thailand

LOVED this hostel. The woman at the front desk (can't remember her name, but she had short hair) was incredibly helpful and helped me book all my tours and transportation. The lockers under the beds are HUGE (you need your own lock) and the beds are very comfortable with a socket and reading light at each one. The bathrooms are also great, though there were times the showers were not hot.

Newland Hostel

Da Lat, Vietnam

Everything about this hostel is fantastic except for the bathrooms. They're pretty small and so everything is wet or dirty most of the time. Our sink and floor were constantly flooded due to drain clogs and the showers were only hot for about three minutes. Staff is awesome, plugs and reading lights by each comfy warm bed, free breakfast. If you're ok with bathrooms like this id highly recommend this hostel!

PP BackPackers

Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Excellent location in backpackers district. Could use another toilet on the same floor as the 8 bed dorm. The girl at the front desk is super helpful and nice and even walked us to the bus in the morning and got our tickets for us. Overall great value for money in my opinion.

Sunflower Hotel Hoi An

Hoi An, Vietnam

As everyone else says, there is an epic breakfast buffet that makes this a great value for your money. Excellent place to meet other backpackers. A little far from old town but overall good location (12min bike ride from beach, 10-15min walk from old town). Do NOT book airport transfers with them as they claim only private cars are available for $15 but you can get a shuttle at many places for 110k dong

Tran Ly Hotel

Hue, Vietnam

Stayed in a private room and it was clean and comfortable with excellent air con. The shower needs some work though as it's nearly impossible to shower without having the whole bathroom flood and the shower curtain was a bit moldy. Not really a place to meet other backpackers. Bike rentals were more expensive than others at 35k dong. Overall a very good stay.

Little Hanoi Hostel

Hanoi, Vietnam

I first stayed here and it was great. Only complaint is the shower in the dorm bathroom downstairs isn't separate so everything gets wet. Staff is super helpful and nice but I recommend shopping around for better tour prices at any of the shops nearby. Wifi works in lobby only. Got switched to the Diamond hotel after a few days which was also good but had to go up six floors of stairs with no lift!

Pride of Paddington

London, England

Extremely conveniently located right next to the tube and Hyde park. Unfortunately this is a pub first so the staff is more concerned with the pub guests than the hostel guests. The beds are insanely uncomfortable. Most of the lockers in my room were broken and you need your own padlock.


Berlin, Germany

I was ready to write comebackpackers a rave review, until the last night. I had to switch rooms which wouldn't have been a problem, except the room I switched into had bedbugs and an awful smell. The following morning had cold showers. If I had checked out the night I was supposed to I would have given this hostel 100%. Too bad about the bedbugs and cold showers..

Art Hole Hostel

Prague, Czech Republic

The hostel is extremely conveniently located - about 15min max walk to train station, bus station, or old town. The directions on the website are a little unclear so I recommend finding the hostel on a map first to ease the process. Breakfast was great the first day - hard boiled eggs in addition to the standard toast and cereal etc. the second day only had toast - not sure what happened. Overall a very good stay, though if you are here to meet other travelers I recommend finding somewhere else

Wait! Guests here keep saying this a friendly little place where meeting others is as easily natural as asking for more eggs to be cooked. Family-run. Home-like. Come back for your lost eggs!


Florence, Italy

Clifford and Jonathan are the sweetest guys ever and are so nice! There's free wine every night and a fridge but not a full kitchen. It's a tiny hostel which is great for meeting people. Only complaint is that it's just a little far from all the main attractions (25-40 min walking depending on where you want to go)

Hostel Baccarat

Nice, France

Free champagne party, €3 pasta and wine night. Located right next to the train station and a 10-15 minute walk to the downtown and beach areas. The lockers are cages. I would recommend this hostel.

Fabrizzios Terrace Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

It is very clean and comfortable to stay in, minus the fact that the bedrooms don't have real doors and share walls with the common rooms so it gets extremely loud at night. No ac in the rooms, only fans. Ana is fantastic! However, if you are looking to experience nightlife or meet lots of people this is not the place to do it.

The Garden Backpacker

Seville, Spain

The staff was wonderful, especially Claudia and Felipe. Loved the walking tours and free daily sangria. It's so easy to meet people here. Only downsides were that there werent that many bathrooms given how many people stay there, and one night I saw a cockroach in the downstairs bathroom. My room didnt have ac but had a fan - it was still quite hot at times. Aside from those two things this is a really fantastic hostel - highly recommend!

Room007 Ventura Hostel

Madrid, Spain

As this is a very new hostel it was great to have fast wifi throughout the building and plugs at each bed. Air conditioning was excellent as well. The hostels activities (walking tour, tapas tour, bar crawl) werent that great. The last day I was there I happened to be in the room when the cleaning ladies came and I noticed they didn't change the fitted sheet on the mattress only the linens and towel! Watch out for that.
