Sir Cedrics Bungi Backpackers

Queenstown, New Zealand

Great social environment! The hostel has a family feel where everyone hangs out with everyone. They organize group bar crawls that are free and are an awesome time. Free hot soup every night which is a huge bonus. The building is older and in mid winter a few of the rooms can get a little cold, and the limited amounts of plug-ins in rooms is a bit of a downer but other than that this hostel has everything you need. The people who run it are great!

Absoloot Value Accommodation

Queenstown, New Zealand

Great place to stay! With new renovations this place is awesome. Beds are new and comfortable, bathrooms are all new and always clean. The kitchen is awesome with a wicked view of the lake. Staff are all super chill, and the location literally can't be beat being right in the center of Queenstown. They are working on the new common area which at this moment there isn't really one, but once finished, this hostel really has it all!

Bunk Backpackers

Brisbane, Australia

Only stayed for a night but this hostel seemed to have it all. GREAT location downtown Brisbane. The free drink at the bar upon checkin was a nice welcome in a pretty awesome bar thats attached to the hostel. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and beds had power points right beside every one. I would recommend this hostel to anyone and i would definitely stay here again

Aussitel Backpackers

Coffs Harbour, Australia

Really great place to stay. Facilities are really good. Kitchen is big with a great common area inside and outside. You can get surfboards, bodyboards etc all for free to rent and the beach is only about a 10 min walk away. They do great trips with all the people from the hostel which makes the place extremely social. Only downside is the quiet time after 10pm which is STRICTLY enforced even though everyone in the hostel is basically drinking together. Easy to go out somewhere else.

Islander Backpackers Resort

Surfers Paradise, Australia

Good hostel with a good vibe. All rooms have their own flatscreen and mini fridge. Location is amazing with short walk to anything you could want in surfers. Will definitely stay here again

Mountain Jade Backpackers

Hokitika, New Zealand

Awesome location and cool hostel to stay in. Everything was really clean. Only thing was the metal bunk beds were pretty squeaky if you had a restless sleeper in your room. Other than that everything was great, would definitely recommend staying here

Nomads Queenstown

Queenstown, New Zealand

Really awesome hostel, gives out free breakfast and dinner! Perfect location, wifi decent with hotspots all over as this is a large hostel. They upgraded our room for free which was nice too! Would stay here again.

Dorset House Backpackers

Christchurch, New Zealand

Nice atmosphere in this hostel, feels like a bed and breakfast. No bunkbeds which is nice. Reception isn't open very late so if you're coming in after hours might be a problem but we weren't so it wasn't a problem for us.

Tombstone Backpackers

Picton, New Zealand

Wonderful hostel! Facilities were great, hot tub overlooking the city/ocean was a really nice touch. Very close to the ferries, excellent wifi, free breakfast, nice beds. Ran by a lovely couple who upgraded our room without asking, at no extra charge! Would highly recommend staying at this hostel and would definitely stay there again.

Mendoza Inn

Mendoza, Argentina

Have nothing bad to say about this hostel! Staff was nice and they organize party events outside of the hostel as well as book tours around the city for you. Internet was good, and kitchen had all you needed. Coffee/tea all day is a nice added touch. Great area around restaurants/shops/grocery stores. Went in the winter so had no use for the pool.

Buenos Artes Hostel

Buenos Aires, Argentina

This is probably the worst hostel in all of Buenos Aries.The beds were so thin/worn out that you could feel the bed posts underneath you.There's 3 showers, but only 1 works so people line up to take showers. No hot water some days, other days no electricity. Only 1 useful staff member, the rest were rude/unhelpful. Staff smoked inside & falls asleep at night so you can't get back in. One night a staff member was even tattooing his friend in the common room!? You have been warned, DONT STAY HERE!

Rio Soul Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

If i only had 3 words to describe Rio Soul, I would say 'Best Hostel Ever", but since i have a few more ill elaborate. The staff are amazing, all of them. They make you feel like your family while staying there. They are super friendly, down to earth, and very helpful. The atmosphere is awesome if you like to party and have fun, otherwise it may not be the one for you. Great location and close to everything. I will stay at Rio Soul EVERY time I'm in Rio, and will recommend it to everyone i know

Samba Palace

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Great hostel and really good atmosphere. Short cab ride to all of Rio's attractions. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was one of the best ive ever had at a hostel, was more than just your traditional Brazilian breakfast. Common rooms were awesome with 2 different tv's you can watch. The only thing i found bad about Samba Palace was that the wifi at times did not work very good. Other than that, i would recommend this place to anyone and i would stay here again

Hostel Solar dos Romanos

Salvador, Brazil

This was my girlfriend and I's first ever hostel to begin a 3 year trip around the world. For our first hostel ever we were very happy with the place. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful, breakfast was good and the place was very secure, and rooms were cleaned daily. For us, the location was awesome because it was right near the stadium for the world cup game we watched, otherwise it was still really nice, settled in their historic district. I would definitely stay here again
