Ace of Spades Hostel

Bled, Slovenia

Great hostel made even better by the extremely friendly and helpful staff. Everything was clean and each bed had an electrical socket which for me was quite handy. Located right next to everything you would want such as a convenience store, the bus station, drinking and eating places and just a short walk to the castle and lake. Planned to stay for two nights but ended up staying four. Very good.

Hostel Sleeping Beauty

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Nice no frills place excellently located near to restaurants and many sights. The chap running it was friendly and helpful. Stayed there both at the start of my holiday and at the end. Good Wifi and my dorm room was quite spacious with lockers. Enjoyed my time there and would stay there again.

Basel Back Pack

Basel, Switzerland

Nice place to stay with large rooms. Toilets and showers OK. Location is near to the trams and train station and they give you a free travelpass which is handy. Next door is a brewery and good place to drink. I think the breakfast maybe should be included in the price. Big problem was the electric sockets that have a long hexagonal recess so unless you have a plug to fit you cannot charge anything. They do have extension leads with flat sockets but usually they are already being used.

Lion Lodge Lucerne

Lucerne, Switzerland

Nice place in a good location. Could do with a lick of paint here and there but still OK. Rooms not too small and cramped. Could do with more privacy in the bathrooms.

Youthhostel Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

When you get there it is a fantastic place with a superb buffet breakfast but it is not in the easiest part of town to find. I took the tram from the train station and followed the directions which were far from clear. I turned left off the number 7 tram instead of right and went completely the wrong way. It is well run, clean and has a nice bar area and fantastic breakfast. The staff are very friendly and helpful. When I asked to change my top bunk for a bottom one it was no trouble.

Youthhostel Schaffhausen

Schaffhausen, Switzerland

I loved staying here as the place has so much character.Toilets and showers were good and there was a good breakfast. The staff were nice although not there between ten and four which is a bit awkward if you have luggage. Bus stop to the falls just around the corner and its a fifteen or so minute walk into town.

Zebra Crossing

Cape Town, South Africa

A fantastic place to stay if in Cape Town. It is comfy, clean and secure; in a nice location near to shops and bars and easy walking distance to the sights. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and there is a nice handy cafe where you can get breakfast and meals in the evening. No noisy partying so a good night's sleep after maybe a long flight. I'll definitely stay here again next time I am in Cape Town.

Pretoria Backpackers

Pretoria, South Africa

Good place to stay but a bit of a walk from Church Square. Could do with a bit of a spruce up. Good pub nearby.

Johannesburg, South Africa

Great place in a nice part of Johannesburg. Staff friendly and the place was roomy and clean. Recommended.

Puzzle Hostel

Bucharest, Romania

I stayed at Puzzle Hostel at the beginning and end of my stay in Romania and it is great value for money. The six bed dorm I was in was clean and spacious and had lockers. Outside the dorm is an area with sofas where you can socialise or use your laptop. There are bathrooms on both floors and both were cleaned regularly by John who seemed to run everything! He is friendly and helpful as was everyone. It is fairly easy to find from the train station.

Gia Boutique Hostel

Sighisoara, Romania

Nice place near the train station in a quiet area and a short walk into town. I liked it but maybe too quiet for some people. Everything clean and tidy.

Centrum House Hostel

Brasov, Romania

It’s a great location and the rooms were spacious and very clean. There was a shower ensuite and the toilets were just outside, all very clean. The downside for me was the constant noise late at night/early morning from revellers outside frequenting the adjacent café bars. There did not seem to be any kitchen or area for socialising, plus the security could have been better as someone could just walk in from the street and go into the dorm.

Step Inn Guest House and Hostel

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Guest Inn Muntri

Shanti Hostel 2

Skopje, Macedonia

Nice place and the dorm rooms aren't too cramped. Nice breakfast and staff helpful and friendly. Handy for trains and buses and not far to the main square. A good choice.

City Hostel Prizren

Prizren, Kosovo

It's a great place and straight away I was made welcome by Galdim, with a cup of coffee. The rooms are not too cramped and are clean, as are the bathrooms. Centrally located near to everything and easy to find.

Green Kiwi Backpacker Hostel

Singapore, Singapore

The bed I had was the top bunk stuck in the corner. I had a small space on the floor to put my baggage along with three other people. It was all too claustrophobic for me with nowhere to put your stuff and it was so dark in the room even during the day I couldnt any running repairs to my case (!). It was very clean and the breakfast was nice. All the staff bar one were friendly and helpful. Good showers but only three toilets.


A good value place near to some good cheap eating places. No problems with the cold, I was in T-shirt most of the time. Big, thick blankets available for your bed if required in the wardrobe. About 1km easy downhill walk to the entrance to Petra, staff friendly and helpful. Near to the bus station.

Hostel Enjoy

Sarajevo, Bosnia And Herzegovina

One of the friendliest, most helpful ladies runs this place. Can-t do enough for you. Excellent place although a wee bit difficult to find and a 20 minute or so walk to the bazaar area but easy to get a tram. Well recommended. Secure as Fort Knox.

Adventurer Hostel

Los Angeles, USA

Great value for money although the dorm was a bit grim and stuffy, and one of the guys insisted on having the TV on till gone midnight when everyone else wanted to get to sleep. Plus I had to wait over an hour in the cold for the shuttlebus to turn up at LAX. Bar and restaurant excellent and the poolside is good.

World Star Hotel

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Very friendly and helpful. A bit of a walk to the Riverside Bars

Windsor Inn

Metro Manila, Philippines

Not near the tourist area of Malate or Ermita but 'real' Philippines with friendly locals and all the facilities except perhaps a quite pub! 10 minute fast walk to the LRT or take a chance with the Jeepneys for 10 pesos into town. Good market at Rizal Ave, Santa Cruz. Very helpful staff.
