This was the second place I stayed while in Jaipur. The room had AC and the plumbing was good. The kitchen was good and they in fact do have free laundry. The staff was also very helpful. I liked it.

19th May 2016

This place was HUGE. I think I was the only one staying there the day I got there. The room was hot but the wifi worked and the facilities were great. Too bad there wasn't any air conditioning. I was there only one night, but the people were helpful and I got what I needed. I'd consider going back there at a cooler time of the season.

Smyle Inn, New Delhi, India

18th May 2016

The place was close to the Airport and I needed a place to crash for a couple of days to let my body get used to the time change. Not a lot of english spoken, but the staff was helpful enough. It was noisy in the morning but that's Bombay. It was more expensive than other places but the shower worked and it was what I needed until I could find a hostel to access more information. I was okay with it.

Anjali Homestay, Mumbai, India
8.0
6th May 2016

Anjali was what I was looking for in terms of information. Like everyone says, the location is perfect. But the folks there had info for visiting Mumbai or other parts of the country. Bunty is always ready to make a mean omelette. I have to learn to take off my shoes when going to houses in India. My room was okay and the AC worked. I was satisfied.

Airport Metro, Mumbai, India
8.6
4th May 2016

Airport Metro was what I want when I first get into a far away country: a place to get adjusted at my leisure for the first couple of days. The shower worked, everything was clean, and amenities were available if I wanted. It got me ready to go looking for a hostel and input from fellow travelers. It worked.

Charlie´s Hostel, Buenos Aires, Argentina

30th Nov 2015

This hostel is brand new. Three weeks old to be exact. You can still smell fresh paint on the doors and fixtures. I had a little trouble finding it, but it was worth it. Ezekiel and his staff went out of their way to accommodate me and show me how to get around Buenos Aires. Definitely worth coming back to if I return.

Hostel Mora Mendoza, Mendoza, Argentina
9.4
27th Nov 2015

I was only at this hostel over night, but was impressed with it immediately. Especially the pitcher of red wine on the table next to the kitchen. The staff was helpful the next day in help me secure a ticket on line to Cordoba before heading to the bus station. With more time, I would like to see more of Mendoza. It seemed like a smaller more accessible town. Next time I guess....

I spent five nights in a single at this hostel. It was reasonably priced and the breakfast was okay MOST of the time. Okay facilities except for the WIFI breaking down for a day or so. I'll go back if I get back that way in a couple of years.

Had a good stay. The breakfast is good and the room is fine for the price. The internet's slow and that's pretty prevalent on that island. Kaka was accommodating when she was around. If I return, I plan to go back to this hostel.

...Like a lot of the reviews say, the place is a little loud at night, so if your an old fart like me, you'll have to get over it. I slept just fine and Emma and Marius were a great help. Bring a lock and use common sense with regard to security. I also liked the dog.

Mbizi Backpackers Lodge, Johannesburg, South Africa

7th May 2015

This was an okay place to settle in for a couple of days after a 30 hour trip to get there. Patrick was accommodating and I was at ease in a room to myself for the first days until I didn't need to sleep forever and then went to the dorms. If I go back to SA, this will probably be where I end up after reversing my tour so I can see the Coast next time.

Annie is your typical cranky Korean Mama-san in that she rules the premises. But I gotta say, she put on a kick-ass spread on Thanksgiving Day. She brought all us Americans home for the day and showed the internationals how we Americans pig out on that special holiday. Besides, it wasn't the first time a woman yelled at me...

I thought it was nice that you get a free cab ride when you spend more than one night there. Jarred was righteous enough. I left early because it was thanksgiving and Public transport sucks on the Big Island. I needed to be sure I'd make it to the other side. Hilo was nice and the breakfast was okay.

MEININGER Frankfurt/Main Airport, Frankfurt, Germany
9.7
6th Jun 2014

This place is surprisingly affordable for being so close to the airport. The food and drinks are a bit more like what's charged for airport fare, but I could use the kitchen and bring my own if I so chose. I normally take the train in from town, this place is fifteen minutes walking distance if you don't want to pay the 3 euros for shuttle. I was amply satisfied.

The place is very close to the BahnHoff and I was a beat-up pup from an all night ride from Maribor. They checked me in and let me lay lifeless around the common area until I could go into the room. Everything was great and I would gladly go back if I'm ever in Nurnberg again.

I got the idea for this place from a card I picked up at the hostel I stayed at in Pampyan(?) It's fairly close to the bus staion and the staff was helpful in getting me to the bus the next morning. Oh yeah...all the desk chics are hot.

The place is okay. Estuardo(?) was a big help in getting me out of town the next morning. I was running out of time and needed to be in Bogota in a matter of days. Too bad the beggars wouldn't leave me alone when I went for a walk, but that was pretty much everywhere.

I was in a hurry, but the place was nice and accomodating. I was there long enough for a walk in the evening before having a nice dinner across the street and then checking out a movie before going to bed. The guy in the morning was a great help. He got me out so fast that I forgot to give him my room key back!

It's far from the airport but about everything is. The folks were very helpful and the place looked like it would have been alot of fun if I could have stayed longer. Unfortunately, I needed to get to Bogota in less than a week so I had to keep travelling.

Hola , Glad to see that you liked Kokopelli and would have stayed longer if it weren't for your flight. Woudl like to mention though that we are in Miraflores, the touristy commercial district of Lima which is indeed 30-40 minutes form the airport and also 90% if Lima hostes are located, you don't really want to stay near the airport even if it's 1 night. Cheers and hope to see you back, Koko.

Don't know what to say... It was noisy on one night. But I looked around and wasn't sure I could do much better for my money if I went somewhere else. I came back to it mainly because I knew it was there. I'd probably look around for something else if I went back.

I wanted to get away to a smaller town. I didn't get to a smaller town, but I did get away. The hostel's just outside of the city limits and there weren't alot of people there so it made for a nice break....I liked walking around the neighborhood near a horse farm or whatever. Breakfast was good too....

I spent most of my time in Dublin and Belfast so this place was a welcome getaway from the city. I was also lucky that there were very few people the night I stayed. It is out of the way in the Ireland countryside. Wicklow is worth looking for. The next day, Helen(proprietor) told me I could make the bus and she was right. I found the bus to and from nowhere where they let you off and as soon as he started the engine, I was ready to get off and go back.

I'm still not sure what to think about hostels in Hong Kong..I got a room to myself at a very reasonable rate at both hostels. This one was very clean. The guy was helpful but I kind of miss being around other folks interacting as you normally do in hostels. But I can't complain about the help I got or ammenities offered.

I liked it...It was a let down from Bejing, but it was good to talk with others and in the end, I got to go to alot of areas. Plus, going outside and taking a left would take you about 500 years back in an instant. The areas around there were fascinating. If I go back to Shanghai, I would go back to a new and improved, I'm sure, SLEEPING DRAGON.

I had my own room and it was okay for the money. The staff was great. They were helpful for any number of things and also had alot of activities available for a reasonable price. If you have a whole day, their Great Wall trip is a good value at 240RMB. And there were lots of other things I didn\'t have time to look into. Apple was the biggest help. Her English is best and she\'s a sweetie, but everyone was good to me. I want to go back.
