Hostel Cat

Las Vegas, USA

Can't complain about a dirt cheap bed in Vegas. The dorms weren't clean, but the rest was fine. Plenty of common space, near any shop you could need, and easy bus access to the strip. The hostel organises activities for the guests every night of the week so there's always something to do. It's in an interesting part of town, but that only adds to the Vegas experience. Would definitely stay again. Staff were very accommodating of my 1am check-in, thanks!


AAE Bourbon House Hostel

New Orleans, USA

You definitely can't go wrong for $16 per night. Free transfers to and from the bus station, and info about very cheap rides to the airport. Lots of common area, and cool staff, especially Caleb and Nigel. COLD aircon which was vital while I was in New Orleans. Only 5 minutes walk to a Walmart with is a huge bonus. About a 20-25 minute walk to Bourbon Street, and the board displaying all the gigs on any given night is very helpful.


Wrigley Hostel

Chicago, USA

Good hostel with a great common room with a BYO bar, pool table, darts, TV and couches. Very close to the subway that goes anywhere and easy to get to from downtown or the bus stations. Across the road from the baseball stadium which makes for a great vibe in the surrounding streets. Only problems were a lack of bathrooms and the pancake breakfast seemed to finish before the quoted time for some reason.


Drifter Jack's Hostel

Austin, USA
71%

Strengths are the location right near the university and The Drag district, close to lots of eateries and thrift stores frequented by the students, with the city and nightlife areas only a five minute bus ride away, with a bus stop right out the front. Atmosphere is good if you want to see the sights during the day and hit 6th Street at night. The rest is okay, although security is lax to say the least and sharing a bathroom with the dorm beside you can be annoying.

Excellent. Wish I'd stayed more than one night. Free breakfast and excellent maps and advice from staff for getting around the city. Location is near everything you'd want to see or do.

Great hostel! Stayed three times over the course of two weeks. The staff and relaxed attitude is the real strong point, unlike anywhere else I've stayed. Great location, easy walk to the sights and right near the subway station. Netflix on a few rainy days was a real bonus. It can get hot in the dorms, though.


New York Budget Inn

$60 per night for a dorm room as far too much for what you get. No kitchen or common areas at all, and the breakfast wasn't great. Very clean and in a great location in midtown. And for some reason, my room swipe card could open other rooms. But you'll get a decent night's sleep.

Thank you for your review. Our rates are very competitive with other properties in NY considering we are located in the City. As we do not have a kitchen we do have a refrigorators and microwaves in most rooms. Please note that we do not offer breakfast, however we do offer complimentary Dunkin Donuts and coffee! Our rooms are accessed with programed proximity key cards, it is impossible to gain access with out or other room key cards!!

Lucky D's

Can't fault Lucky D's at all. Absolutely fantastic at a VERY reasonable price. I've only been gone a few days but I miss the waffle breakfast so much already. I will definitely stay again. Free breakfast, free wifi, $1 towels, great location in the Gaslamp near all public transport, and great social activities each night of the week (one of which is simply free beer!). I just wish there was more than one tap in the kitchen!


Banana Bungalow Hollywood

Los Angeles, USA
89%

Really good. The dorms had both an ensuite and small kitchen. Free breakfast and internet. Daily housekeeping, so it's always clean. Good location right on Hollywood Blvd. Laundry is very cheap, and hostel activities most days. Only complaint would be the hostel activities are pretty unorganised, especially the trip to the other hostel. You're much better off going out for the night doing your own thing.

Amsterdam Hostel

San Francisco, USA

Easily the cheapest hostel in San Fran, so it wasn't the most glamorous, but for $23 a night, no complaints. The kitchen is pretty small and not the cleanest. The wifi is petty horrible, but it's free. Best aspects were the baggage storage until 9pm and favourable location,

Dorms were pretty spacious, kitchen was big enough, not a huge amount of common space. Would have been a great stay if the bathrooms were cleaner, they were pretty filthy. Good location in the CBD, need a code to get through both doors at night. The elevator is ancient and can be a nuisance.

Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are glad to hear that you liked the spaciousness of our dorms and kitchen. It's disappointing to hear that you did not find our bathrooms clean enough, our bathrooms are cleaned every single day and checked hourly through the day to keep them tip top. Most guests find our lift to be a quirky addition our hostel though we understand it's not loved by all ;-) We hope you will visit us again next time, Cheers The Attic Team

YHA Gisborne

Enjoyed my stay. Small and very quiet hostel. The dorms are very spacious, never seen such a large room for a 6-bed dorm. Large kitchen, decent-sized common and TV room. Good wifi, but it's $5 per day even for YHA members. Nice deck outside to eat and socialise. The walk into the city centre is about 10-15 minutes, and about 20 mins from the Information Centre. Would stay again if I ever return to Gisborne.

Enjoyed my stay. The free made coffee in reception is the real winner in this hostel. A nice, leisurely downhill walk to the lake, right on the rim of the Taupo CBD. Large kitchen and common areas, clean rooms. Accommodating hosts who offer free pick up/drop off at the iSite. Would definitely stay again.

Mount Backpackers

Stayed three nights, didn't really like it. The dorm was the most cramped I've ever seen, and the floors look like they are rarely vacuumed. The big issue for me was the dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is tiny, with only one stove and a lack of dishwashing equipment. The dining area is outdoors and unless you like second-hand smoke with your food, it is very unpleasant. Common area is very small. Free wifi and towel were a bonus, location is great. Wouldn't stay again.
