Busan Kyungsung Hostel & Cafe

Busan, South Korea

Awesome hostel! Mike and Alvin are awesome staff members, Mike even helped me by translating with a camera repair man for me while I was in Busan. They are very friendly and will help you with anything you need in Busan. Nice, quiet hostel with lots of people to go to baseball games and to go drinking with. Definitely stay here.

The Style Guest House

Daegu, South Korea
80%

Good hostel. The site might say "26-bed dorm" but the rooms are in the pod style, so it's no where near as bad as it sounds. Pretty quiet most of the time, and the cafe downstairs is a cool reception area. Helpful staff. Only problem is that security is almost zero, but it's a safe area (this is Korea, afterall) so you won't have any problems.

Birdsnest Hostel

Seoul, South Korea
94%

Very homely hostel, maybe more suited to long-term guests. As with most hostels in Korea, the host is very kind and welcoming. About a 10 minute walk from the Hongik subway station, but it's all flat so the walk is nothing to be worried about. Free breaky, coffee, internet and towels. Situated in a very quiet area well away from main roads.

Come Inn Guesthouse

Seoul, South Korea

Bobby runs a great, homely hostel. A bit more suited to long-term guests, but you'll definitely get a good night's sleep at a great price. Located in the busy, university district Hongdae, about a 10 minute walk from the nearest subway station.

G Guest House Itaewon In Seoul

Seoul, South Korea

Best hostel ever. The owners, Shrek and Fiona, will help you with ANYTHING, are the kindest people ever, and will make you feel like part of their family. There's free espresso, breakfast, satellite TV with 100+ channels, very spacious dorms, and everything is spotless. The layout makes it very easy to meet people; essentially, you won't want to leave. Thank you so much, guys.

Faultless. You won't find a better hostel in Seoul, or maybe even anywhere. Great owners in Shrek and Fiona who would do anything for you, and a great location just off the main street in Itaewon, Spacious, spotless dorms and lots of common space, including a basement and a rooftop. Stay here.

Kimchee Sinchon Guesthouse

Seoul, South Korea

Very good for the $11 or so per night I paid. Located around the university area so plenty of places to eat and hang-out near by. Not overly social as most guests were either long-term staff members or university students.

Hostel Cat

Las Vegas, USA
80%

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
83%

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.

The Philadelphia House

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

New York, USA

$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.

Lucky D's

San Diego, USA

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,

The Attic Backpackers

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

Mount Maunganui, New Zealand

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.
