Second Wind Hostel by MNL, Boracay Island, Philippines

2nd Feb 2016

This is probably the nicest hostel dorm I've stayed in-super clean, comfy bunk beds that don't squeak, 2 bathrooms per dorm with hot water, aircon, locker, light and plug sockets, good wifi, free water, free breakfast (eggs, bacon, fruit). But then I guess that's why it's also one of the more expensive ones too! Good location 5 mins walk from white beach so you can get a decent sleep. Only thing lacking was backpacker atmosphere, solo travellers will have to be more proactive in meeting people.

Only stayed one night in Cebu and wanted to be central and close to transportation links which this place was. It's more of a budget hotel rather than hostel but we were lucky to meet some other backpackers on the balcony bit on our floor. It was clean and wifi was good. Rooms are very small and hot, some don't have windows or aircon so ask if there is an upgrade available upon check in. The twin rooms are actually a bunk bed. It was a good place to stay for what I needed but nothing more.

TR3ATS Guest House - Bohol, Tagbilaran City, Philippines

22nd Jan 2016

Nice hostel, bad staff. Beds are comfy, bathrooms new and clean. Good aircon, good wifi. Location is ok but not much to do in tagbilaran. I found the staff to be very unhelpful and did not know much of the information you would normally expect in a hostel. It took a lot of prompting for them to dig deeper and actually try to help me with what I needed to find out. They struggled with the number of people staying and the simplest job took forever. Lots of other backpackers to socialise with.

I loved staying here! Don't let the location put you off, it's a bit tricky to find but its only 10min from the main Street. It's an adventure walking to it and is only amongst a local neighbourhood but is very safe (bring flashlight for night as the path is very rocky).Lovely veranda area overlooking the sea. Gordo and his wife are the friendliest people and willing to help or give advice. It's not the cleanest or biggest dorm I've been in but it adds to the charm and character. Will stay again

Only stayed here one night but it was perfect. Really friendly staff, good wifi, nice pool and cool rooftop views. Nice sociable communal area where I met some nice people. Rooms weren't the cleanest but it was fine. Bit hard to find look out for the sign it's not very obvious and make sure you take the elevator from the gym and not the stairs as this is the only accessible way to the hostel! Can't comment on location as I did not explore manila. I would stay here again.

Hostel situated in the heart of the medina but very safe. Staff are excellent the guy was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to help me with directions/recommendations. Breakfast was amazing and everything was clean. The hostel is really cool and very Moroccan. The beds were really comfy and the terrace was cool to chill out on. I would stay here again.

This is hostel is awesome, great bar area for meeting people and having a drink at happy hour, live music 2 of the 5 nights we stayed. Free dinners everynight for those who got a seat early my friends said it wasn't bad. Very small kitchen but we always ate out. Very clean but serious lack of showers and toilets on each floor always queuing every morning...dorm rooms are quite small and the bunk beds are THE squeakiest ever don't expect a good sleep! Central location. Would stay here again

This is a really cool hostel, rooms are big and airy and the bathrooms were all really clean. There is a bar/hang out area downstairs and the staff are really friendly. It is in a neighbourhood called larenjerias which is a bit far out from copacabana and the other main areas, no metro near by so you have to take the bus or taxi to get places which is a downside. The communal computers didnt work which was annoying.

Dear guest, Thank you very much for your feedback. It is very important for us to continually improving our service and making it even a better hostel :) Now we have 2 other new computers and hopefully 5 will be enough to make our guests happy!! Once more , thank you for staying with us and for your comments :) A Big hug from Samba Palace Team :D

My room was in the basement which was dark and dingy with hardly any space to put anything. Other rooms had 3 tiered bunk beds which looked awful! Theres a tiny kitchen and outdoor area both are quite small. About a 10 minnute walk from the metro in botafogo which is good. On the plus side, wifi was good as was the free breakfast. Probably wouldnt stay here again though, would be better to stay closer to copacabana where everything is happening.

Lima is huge so it's hard to comment on location but reception can help you book cheap taxis to get about. I got picked up from the airport which was good. Rooms were nice. Good social atmosphere the outside area on top of the building by the bar is really good for socialising. It's a very busy hostel though could have done with more staff on reception.

The location is perfect for hollywood literally a stones throw from the Main Street in Hollywood but you can't hear any noise at night so you can get a good nights sleep!Super clean and nice big airy rooms with comfy beds. Nice outside area and tv room. Free breakfast of pancake or waffles in the morning is appreciated and the staff are very friendly. Free, fast wifi. I would say it is slightly overpriced though.

6th Apr 2014

Perfect location just off queens st. Great staff and really clean throughout, the kitchen is big and tidy and the outdoor terrace and tv rooms are really good for socialising. I would definitely stay here if I was in Auckland again. The only thing was that it gets really hot at night but you get the street noise if you open the windows. Also the wifi I thought was too expensive (20$) 3 days.

Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed the cleanliness, staff and social atmosphere of our hostel! We are right in the centre of the city, so some level of city noise is inevitable I'm afraid. Wifi is at a premium in NZ and most hostels do charge for it, however we do give all guests a free 3 hour voucher on checkin which is a great bonus! Hope to see you next time you are in Auckland, Cheers-The Attic Team

The best hostel ever! Staff are the friendliest, especially Kerry she's so nice and helped me book all my tours. Free really strong wifi that reaches the bedrooms too. Everything is always being cleaned and it's really cosy, stand alone beds and nice kitchen and living room area. Shuttle into town otherwise 20 min walk. Clean towels for you to take on the tours. Friendly sociable atmosphere. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to escape the party hostels.

It's far away from the little town of mission beach but really close to the bus stops and supermarket. Not much to do here but the hostel can drop you off at one of the walking trails and pick you up again which I recommend. Everything was clean and a good kitchen. Wifi was poor though. Not a huge social atmosphere here.

This is my favourite hostel in oz so far! Right opposite the bus station but they have a free shuttle anyway. 5 min stroll to the Main Street of airlie. Lovely garden and pool and nice rooms with air con. Really nice chilled atmosphere, nightly quiz is good to meet people. Staff are so friendly. Wifi is good but you have to pay but 4$ for 24 hrs. Also large breakfast available. Only thing was the any/fruit fly infestation that seemed to be in the kitchen.

Rainbow beach is tiny so it's not far to get anywhere from the hostel. No wifi had to queue for ages to use the pcs. People are only here to do Fraser Island tours.

This hostel is in the perfect location, after visiting Chiba town I'm glad I didn't choose a hostel there.

The staff were very helpful and wifi was great. Dorms could have been a bit cleaner but they were cool and quiet. Outdoor area good for socialising. I would definitely stay here again.

Although I cannot fault this hostel for cleanliness or location, I really cannot say it's good value for money, compared to other accommodation in the area it is way overpriced. 580 for a fan room which is sooo hot or 620 for aircon. The ensuite had no hot water and you had to rent towels etc. There are so many other cheap accommodation options at long beach which aren't on the internet, such as bungalows, privately owned rooms or even a treehouse dorm!

The owners are really nice which makes up for little faults with the accommodation. Bathroom wasn't the cleanest but it had hot water! Wifi was great, not the typical dorm layout, single beds in rooms joining onto a central bedroom, was quiet when I was here so had a room to myself! Bit further out of the centre of pai but still only a 5 min walk! I'd recommend looking up how to get there if you get a bus as it's not easy to find.

It's about a 10 min walk to the centre of Luang Prabang and without a good map it's quite easy to get lost! Breakfast is good and there's a big common area. Staff are good but English could be better, he does help you book transport and tuk tusk if you need it. The major downfall with this hostel is the wifi, it hardly ever worked and this was a problem for everyone. Overall a good stay but you could probably find a guesthouse closer to the centre.
