Lovely Jubbly Villa, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
9.1
3rd Apr 2015

Overall very nice stay - the pool, bar and common area are inviting to hang out in, and you can book a ton of tours or buses to your next destination at the hotel desk. Laundry service was good. The staff is nice, however there are almost too many of them...they congregate and seem to socialize amongst themselves instead of interact with the guests, but the hostel is supposedly in hosptitality training. Beds firm, but fine. There's more room in the larger mixed dorms than the tight 4 bed dorm.

Very nice staff and overall great visit. I stayed in the mixed dorm - big lockers, good A/C, individual outlets and lights. The common area and bathroom are both adjacent, so it can get a bit loud if you're trying to rest outside of the quiet hours. The showers were good, breakfast was minimal - toast and coffee, but there's tons of cafes nearby. I'd stay here again - Love Lane is a great area.

My first night in an 8 bed dorm was rough - there was water under the lockers from the a/c, which didn't work very well so the room was hot and smelly due to a couple of less than tidy bunkmates. I left early for a tour and returned to find my bed had been given away and items I'd left on the bed bagged up behind the desk. It turned out to be a simple front desk mix up and they kindly moved me to a private room at no cost for the 2nd night! Decent atmosphere and breakfast; I'd stay here again.

Comfortable beds, free basic breakfast, nice coffee bar downstairs. However, they program all the air conditioning to turn off between 1000-1900 every day, which I think is unfair and false advertising. If you pay for an air conditioned dorm room, then that should be available 24-7 -- most hostel goers have strange travel hours and messed up sleep schedules and should be able to sleep comfortably whenever they choose. It's a nice clean place, but I'd never stay there again for their a/c policy.

Great experience overall. Huge lockers and personal space in your bunk/closet area. Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms and welcoming common area with 24/7 water and coffee and hammocks to lounge in. Either a 15 min walk or 20 Baht songthaew ride to the beach. A bit pricier than I'd usually go for in a dorm, but I would definitely stay here again - it's one of my best hostel experiences in 6 months.

One of the best values around for an air conditioned dorm bed. Staff are very friendly and helpful, cafe on site, walking distance to anything in the old town. The room is pretty cramped for space and only small lockers available, but it's still a good deal for the cheap price -- I'd definitely stay here again for a short visit on a budget.

My second stay here and was again a stellar experience. The staff is so friendly and helpful and even remembered me from the month before. The most comfortable hostel beds I've ever slept on, nice bathrooms and common area and refreshing pool. It's half private guest rooms so doesn't have the most socialable, party hostel atmosphere, but it's a great place to relax and take it Chiang Mai. They kindly kept my luggage while I went off to Elephant Nature Park for 2 days - a MUST see, by the way!

HI Mid Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand

Daytime staff was great, night staff was so rude that I would have left the place immediately had it not been 2200. The mattresses and pillows are that thick plastic and not very comfortable, and they give you a sheet to make your own bed which I found strange. Good showers and decent common area, but nobody hung out there. Included breakfast is rubbish - toast and coffee/tea only. About 5-10 walk to the metro. It's ok for a short stay, but there's better hostels and locations in Bangkok.

Sihome Backpackers Hostel, Vientiane, Laos

I didn't actually stay at Sihome, but was moved across the street to Getaway Backpackers with no explanation. When I inquired, they got a bit defensive, said it was all the same rate, same owners. Beware of false advertising. The staff was slow to respond to anything - when I tried to order dinner, I was shown a table and10 min later the guy was out smoking. When I asked again, I was told, "This is Laos..." I get asian time, but really? Awful beds, nice showers, decent breakfast, but no thanks.

3Howw Hostel Khaosan, Bangkok, Thailand

Decent hostel, nice staff, though lots of oddities: you can buy beer in the lobby but can't take it upstairs to the TV lounge, they turn off all the a/c from 1200-1400 daily, no shower shoes allowed, and only 1 set of shared bathrooms on 2nd floor, even if your room is on 4th floor. The mattresses are rather hard, but clean rooms and nice people, with a couple good restaurants on the street. Breakfast is only toast and cereal and coffee/tea. I'd stay here again for this area, but poor ambiance.

We stayed in a private double that was plain, but clean and comfortable, and we hung out in the nice TV room until the room was ready (early even, at 1100!). The staff was helpful with arranging airport transfer and ordering takeout. It's a bit far from anything in town, but a few restaurants and couple bars are nearby, along with supermarket and subway stop just 5 min walk. Nice place and no complaints, though perhaps too expensive for the further out location.

Modern, super clean dorms with backpacker conveniences in mind, though mostly private guest rooms so it has more of an older crowd and not a real backpacker vibe with not too many Westerners. That said, the beds are as good as home nd it's a lovely, comfortable common space with good cafe and a pool, so if you're looking for R&R and a deal for an a/c dorm, this is the place! The owners and staff are awesome - genuinely friendly and helpful beyond what is required - would totally stay here again.

De Vieng Hostel, Chiang Mai, Thailand

Modern hostel, helpful staff, VERY comfy beds & nice room layouts (own dual outlet, bedlamp, locker). Breakfast didn't look worth the $ and there's good, cheap food nearby. Washer (20 B) & dryer (20-30) available, and nice bathrooms, though no a/c/fan so it's pretty humid to get ready and change in there. Only true negative is small lobby that doesn't attract guests to linger there, so it's not a super social hostel unless you meet people in your room. But would stay here again for sure!

Great rooftop hangout with friendly staff and good, cheap food. There's a travel desk that I didn't use, but could help with trek planning. It's a good location just up a dirt (read muddy when it rains) road from the main shopping area. The under bunk locker drawers are clumsy and loud and a pain to lock, and the bathrooms were often out of toilet paper and not super clean...though they do say they clean them every 3 hrs. Good deal for cheap price and good vibe - I'd stay here again.

The staff was very nice and helpful, and it's a short 5-10 min walk to both Black beach and Varkala beach, and the porch/yard are peaceful and relaxing. The fruit stand across the street is a great breakfast on the go. We thought the bamboo hut would be cute, but it's dark and prison-like. There's just a bed and small table - nowhere to put your stuff, and the wifi didn't work (they attempted to fix, but it only lasted one night). Good place for the price, but ask if your room has wifi!

Nice staff and a travel deskl that can help with trip/transportation bookings (highly recommended..spend a few Rs to save some major hassle at the train station). The a/c room was a welcome break from heat; sheets/pillow provided, though cleanliness of room and bathroom was just average...probably above average for India though. Washing machine use on site for Rs200, included breakfast is just toast and bananas with tea/coffee. Met awesome travelers here - they were the best part of my visit!

Easy to find from the airport and good location. The staff is not overly friendly, though polite enough, but the atmosphere and fellow travelers more than make up for it. Only a couple shared bathrooms, but they are cleaned regularly. I would stay here again...it's a good option for the price. Small lockers that barely fit a computer and few valuables, but every bed has a power strip with worldwide adapters.

Good location, big kitchen for guest use and several common areas (though with old couches). The staff is helpful when you have specific questions, but it's kind of hit or miss how friendly and inclusive they are -- they're all young interns and seem to have their own cliches and drama that take priority in their days. There are nice daily/weekly activities arranged by the hostel, but the board hadn't been updated in a week. Decent rooms - I'd opt for the cleaner female dorm over mixed.

Overall great experience. The rooftop bar is cozy and a good place to hang out, though would be better with different seating options -- the metal bar stools are not comfortable. The beds are great, rooms and bathrooms clean, but half of my showers were cold...others on my floor said the same thing.

I have only great things to say about Ahmet and my stay at this hostel. Despite my plane landing late and not arriving to Taksim until 1:30 in the morning, Ahmet met my taxi at the corner and walked me to the hostel, then "upgraded" me to my own room so that I didn't have to try and unpack without disturbing the other women already asleep. The rooms are simple, but they have a/c and a fan and large lockers for each bed. The location is excellent and Ahmet was very helpful with recommendations.

Great place for the low price, with friendly people that made it a fun place to hang out in the evenings. Rooms and bunk beds were fine, with lockable storage for just a couple people on a first-come, first claim basis. The bathrooms were clean, but had an unidentifiable, slightly fishy smell. The terrace was nice also.
