Code Hostel

Edinburgh, Scotland

The staff at the hostel mixed up our beds a couple of times but apart from that the hostel was good.

Wombats City Hostel London

Good, clean hostel.

Caledonian Backpackers

Edinburgh, Scotland

I was in Edinburgh for Hogmanay and the hostel was really well located for getting around. The room was quite cold but once I let staff know, they put another heater in the room which really helped.

Oxford Backpackers Hostel

Oxford, England

It's a good hostel if you want to socialize. The beds are comfortable enough and the bathrooms are generally clean.

YHA Oxford

Oxford, England

Stayed in the female dorm which had its own bathroom with separate toilet which was great. The hostel was really clean and the beds were quite comfortable. There was a little noise from the train station close by but it wasn't that bad and you could still get a decent nights sleep.

Hootananny Hostel

London, England

The toilets are usually filthy and you often find males using the female toilets. The bathroom has three showers - the shower doors are painted but the bathroom has one huge clear window and there is nowhere to get changed but in the bathroom or the toilet because the showers are too small to dry and dress in. You can often smell weed drifting through the windows. The music at night is deafening. The bed covers are washed but the blankets and pillows are not (they are yellow with old sweat).


The bunks are 3 high which doesn't leave alot of room to sit on the bed but they are relatively stable and comfortable. The showers and toilets are shared between females and males but they are cleaned daily and the showers are located in quite large cubicles for you to place your dry clothes for changing afterwards. Also the internet speeds were faster than I've experienced in most hostels. Location has great public transport. Downside was that there is no hostel kitchen. Overall a good stay.


London, England

It's summer and the rooms were stinking hot - literally. We had tiny window to let in fresh air in a room of 10 girls. The room only had 4 power points for 10 girls trying to charge their phones. The showers were tiny and had nowhere for you to place your clean and dry clothes to get changed into after your shower plus you had to constantly press a button to keep the water flowing and you couldn't change the temperature. On the positive side - there was free wifi and a decent enough breakfast.

HI NYC Hostel

New York, USA

Was a pretty ok hostel. On the plus side - there was air conditioning in the dorms and each bed had a light and power point. On the down side - the rooms smelled a bit funky and there was only one female only bathroom on the floor (the floor was quite large and I was located in the dorm furthest away from bathroom plus the floor was mainly made up of 12 bed female dorms so the bathroom got pretty busy). Note - don't buy anything from the cafe downstairs - the food seemed to sit there for days.

Adventure Queenstown Hostel

Queenstown, New Zealand

This is honestly the best hostel I've stayed in. The girls dorm had a ensuite bathroom which was a decent size. The Sunday dinner prepared by the owner was real value for money. I would totally recommend staying here.

YHA Rolleston House

Christchurch, New Zealand

The staff were nice enough to let me move into a private room since I was a little sick. The hostel is really central and easy to get to from the airport plus they had free parking for my rental car.

YHA Wellington City

Wellington, New Zealand

They were really accommodating since I was a little sick and let me change from a dorm to a private room. The room was pretty cold but they provided really heavy and warm blankets so I had a pretty comfortable sleep. Overall it was a good hostel.
