Bayrams Treehouse

Olympos, Turkey

We loves Bayrams! Met some amazing people and properly chilled out for a few nights. Great atmosphere. Could've stayed longer. The free breakfasts and dinners are amazing, but there are better options in Olympos for lunch. Stay here in Olympos for sure!!!

Sabah Pansiyon

Antalya, Turkey

Nice place to stay in Antalya. Rooms are clean and comfortable and staff are helpful. Decent free breakfast. There's a nice pool across the road so make sure you ask them to show you where it is!

The Yellow

Rome, Italy

Choose this hostel in Rome!! Nice rooms, fun bar, cheap meals. Only downside is the kitchen is basic so you can't really cook in it.

Ciao Hostel

Florence, Italy

Good budget option, comfy beds, great kitchen. Not much of a typical hostel atmosphere for people wanting to meet others, but staff are pretty helpful and quite friendly. B

Grand hostel LerO

Split, Croatia

Decent budget hostel option in Split! Only stayed here one night and it was perfect for our needs. It is a bit of an uphill slog from the bus station and from the old town but it was clean, and comfortable. Staff gave us cold watermelon on arrival - can't complain about that!! Thanks!

Hostel Split

Split, Croatia

Probably wouldn't recommend. Overpriced for what you get - no common areas and cold showers. Staff recommended us a great restaurant though! Convienient location from the bus station but there are better options in Split.

Five Reasons Hostel

Nuremberg, Germany

Is combined with a hotel so doesn't really have that hostel feel - no walking tours, nights out, family dinners etc. But if that's not what you're looking for then it's super great - spacious rooms, comfy beds, good kitchen, awesome showers and free wifi.

The Hipstel

Barcelona, Spain

My second stay at the Hipstel - a shame that the room with the couches was being renovated as it definitely isn't as comfy without it. The bed I slept on this time was pretty uncomfortable, but apart from that it was great!

Hostel Meeting Point

Madrid, Spain

It was okay. Really needs a common area for socialising. The kitchen is downstairs and feels like you're cooking in a dungeon! Staff were helpful when you asked but weren't as openly friendly as some other hostels I've been to. Would recommend as a cheap option, but not to solo travellers.

Home Backpackers

Valencia, Spain

Home Backpackers is a good choice for anyone visiting Valencia on a budget. It's quite big but the atmosphere was still good and the staff are lovely. They have a really big rooftop terrace which is great for socialising. They could do with another 'common area' where people can go to socialise after the rooftop terrace closes. The showers were some of the best I've had in Spain! Pub crawl was fun and the free walking tour with the blonde Austrian girl (forgot her name) was really really good.

PILOT Design Hostel & Bar

Porto, Portugal

Decent place to stay in Porto if you are on a budget. The staff are lovely and the common areas are comfy. They need to fix the wifi which was dodgy when we stayed. The 'modern' design of the bathrooms meant they got dirty really quickly even though they were cleaned lots. Free walking tour was excellent, would recommend it.


Oasis Backpackers is amazing value for money. The mansion is very cool with a bar and you get a free shot of traditional Portuguese liquor on arrival! Only thing I would suggest is more couches in the common area, and more fans or air-con in the rooms as it can get really hot. But I would still recommend it to anyone!

Thanks for the comments! More fan's and Air con--check. We now have air/con and heating in every room. The couches are being built and will be on their way shortly. We hope to see you again so you can try a perfectl temparzied nap on our couches!

Cloud 9 Hostel

Lagos, Portugal

Cloud 9 is a good choice if you are going to Lagos! The spot was perfect, staff were super friendly and Skye's free pub crawl was a really fun night! Would recommend Cloud 9 for sure.

La Banda Rooftop Hostel

Seville, Spain

The boys at La Banda have done an amazing job. This was a seriously cool hostel in a perfect spot in Seville. The common area and rooms were super comfy and the rooftop bar with views of the Catherdral was incredible. Their €6 dinners (which include a drink) were SO delicious. To think they only opened in April is amazing. Stay at La Banda in Seville, you won't regret it!

Itinere Hostel

Granada, Spain

Comfortable clean hostel with friendly, knowledgable staff and a good atmosphere. Is quite big and has an English/Spanish language school within the same building which is random but we met some interesting people. If you're in Granada make sure you go to Babel for drinks and free tapas!

Roger's House

San Sebastian, Spain

WE LOVED ROGER'S HOUSE! Don't be alarmed when you first walk in at how small it is, because it only adds to the atmosphere of the place. Mario's dinners and sangria were amazing and the bar crawls were so much fun. The staff have great recommendations for good pinxtos, and I never got to do it but apparently the hike they organise is amazing. Only negative is that it is a bit overpriced - the most expensive hostel I've stayed at in Spain.

Albergue Zaragoza Hostel

Zaragoza, Spain

Great place to stay in Zaragoza. Quite big which sometimes detracts from the atmosphere and meeting new people but apart from that can't complain at all. Staff are super helpful and the venue in the basement is really cool.

The Hipstel

Barcelona, Spain

Fantastic hostel, good spot, great staff, lovely atmosphere. The staff cook dinners for €5-8 every night and organise nights out too. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Would go back for sure!

A&O Berlin Friedrichshain

Berlin, Germany

Good area, clean enough. One of the biggest hostels I've ever stayed in - too big to have much of an atmosphere. The toilets smelled extremely bad while I was there but everything else was pretty clean.
