Barnacles Temple Bar House

Dublin, Ireland

Only stayed one night but wish I could have stayed longer! Nightly pub crawl was an A+ for facilitating guest interaction and meeting fellow travellers. Facilities were clean, staff was nice, and the location was perfect for exploring Dublin.

Chillout Cengo

Istanbul, Turkey

Solid hostel, tons of character--three flights of rainbow stairs, a monochromatic red kitchen, cartoons and notes on the walls from former guests. Staff was polite, laidback, and helpful but otherwise minded their business and didn't seem overly eager to interact. Relaxed environment, loved the quirk. Overall, a bit more "roughing it" than some of the bigger, chain Euro hostels (e.g. one morning water was off til noon) but beds were comfortable and price was very well worth it--I'd stay again
