Skyewalker Hostel, Isle of Skye, Scotland

7th Apr 2016

I've stayed in hostels all over the world and this is a great hostel! Quirky, fun, clean, well run, inexpensive and good facilities. The family that own and run it are really friendly and helpful (they came to tell all the guest in the lounge that the Northern lights could be seen from the back garden). Free tea and coffee, books, games and instruments. There is no wifi but that is due to the area the hostel is in. Makes for a really sociable atmosphere in the common areas! Would stay again.

MNL Boutique Hostel, Manila, Philippines

14th Jul 2014

Rooms on ground floor don't have windows and are a bit dingy. From what I saw, all the rooms are really small. Air con units are really noisy but were effective. WiFi didn't work in rooms. Staff helpful. Great location - Makati is a nice area, clean and safe by Manila standards. A few homeless kids and beggars outside but felt safe enough. Kitchen with fridge, microwave and hot water is handy. Supermarket right next door, lots of malls in the area. Not quite as good as the MNL in Boracay

The Island Hotel Bali, Kuta, Indonesia

13th Jul 2014

Love this place! Stayed 3 times on our travels round Bali. Good location, slightly out of the way from Kuta proper (this is a good thing!) but still plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Staff are excellent and extremely helpful, facilities also great (pool, restaurant, masseuse, satellite TV in the private rooms). The only annoyance is not being able to get wifi in the rooms (you can get it in common areas) but otherwise a great place to stay and meet people. Would recommend.

Nick's Homestay, Ubud, Indonesia

Great place! Traditional compound, with other families living around you. Breakfast great, wifi OK (not that strong), staff so helpful and really sweet. Cockerels a nuisance crowing at 5am but hey, it's Indonesia! Pebbles on the shower floor look nice but very uncomfortable to stand on and a bit smelly. Spotlessly clean elsewhere, room serviced daily. Much better than the previous reviews had lead me to believe. Great location off a Main Street but quiet. Close to supermarket. Would recommend.

Good wifi, good aircon, free breakfast (toast), great selection of DVD's. Tour company downstairs, so loads of free, local advice on tap! Recently moved to new location (2 weeks) and could have done with a final clean down of everything. Bedroom was clean

Decent wifi. Rooms a bit dark and dingy. TV in the bar with lots of cable channels but staff often watch it, so it's on the discovery channel a lot! Free tea

Great location, lovely building, reasonable price (breakfast of toast and fruit included). Staff were really helpful and a good laugh. WiFi is good, air con effective, beds and linen are really nice. Private room didn't have a window but the common areas were nice and bright. One of the best places we stayed in one month in Malaysia. Would definitely recommend.

Staff helpful, able to book onward travel etc. WiFi doesn't reach most of the rooms. Accommodation is basic, a bit dated but fine. Good location, 2 mins walk from the main street. It was clean and only £7, so can't complain.

Nice place. Room was a decent enough size (locker in room), clean, common areas OK although not big or that comfy. Blankets too small for tall people! Great library of books, free use of PC w/internet. Yeah breakfast is only toast and jam but it's free! Vending machine on site for cold drinks (including beer). Staff knowledgable and helpful. Invited guests out to introduce them to each other, which is cool. Location great for Twin Towers (15 mins walk), lots of food places nearby too.

Very dirty, dorm door is always open (no lock), although lockers are provided. Bucket flush toilets only, showers just a trickle but enough to have a wash. Rooms without aircon are unbearably hot. Saw 3 rooms altogether - all a bit like prison. Staff are really nice though and v helpful - we asked to change room and it was no problem. Staff can also book travel and tours for you. Very cheap so you do get what you pay for. Wouldn't stay again though.

Probably the best hostel I stayed in, in 11 wks in NZ. It's huge, so not cosy but still easy to meet people. Kitchens great - clean & well equipped. Bunks standard. Bathrooms always really clean. Staff helpful and really nice. Great location, near plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. Big supermarket really handy. TV room is great, WiFi signal is decent. Ended up staying for 2 weeks!
