Hostel Pirate

Ulcinj, Montenegro

Another great hostel in Montenegro! This place was really sociable, with everyone gathering around in the lounge in the evening. The owner is really friendly and helpful and makes a massive effort to ensure everyone is having a good time. This is the only hostel in town and so it's full of real backpackers who are all friendly which helps to create a great atmosphere. The facilities are all really clean and the beds really comfy.

Old Town Hostel East Wing

Kotor, Montenegro

This was a really great hostel, it's a shame i only had one night in Kotor, i would have stayed longer if i could. The staff are really friendly, helpful and funny. It has a really relaxed atmosphere and the building is cool as well.

Rafting Rooms Tara

Zabljak, Montenegro

Wow, this place is in a really amazing location. It's slightly hard to find but well worth it when you do. We awoke to a stunning view of the mountains and tara bridge hearing the current of the water. The staff were all really helpful and the evening meal was really tasty.

Hostel Podgorica

Podgorica, Montenegro

I stayed here for just one night whilst travelling through. I caught the night bus from Sarajevo, arriving into town at 3am (1 hour late), although checkin closes at 10pm, they agreed to stick around for me which i really appreciated. They are really close to the bus station which was a great benefit for me! The team were really helpful as well, helping us to organise a car.

Balkan Han Hostel

Sarajevo, Bosnia And Herzegovina

A really great hostel. Unkas, the owner is really knowledgable and recommended a really great place for some traditional Bosnian food. They run a day tour and you really get to see the city and surroundings that would not be possible on your own. I had a great time in sarajevo.

Hostel Majdas

Mostar, Bosnia And Herzegovina

This is a really great hostel, a home from home where you're greeted with cake and iced-tea. The rooms are comfy, the breakfast tasty and the tour with Bata is a must. I spent 3 nights here and met loads of interesting people, there is a real sociable atmosphere about the hostel. One of the best i have stayed in.

STF/IYHF af Chapman

Stockholm, Sweden

Really great place to stay, clean, great facilities, everything you'd need. Only downside is it's not really geared up for a solo travellers looking to meet other people and lacks an atmosphere - this could just be time of year though.

Hostel Waka Waka, Marrakech

Marrakech, Morocco

I had a great 3 nights in this Hostel. It's in a great location, a little tricky to find but it's Marrakesh - everything is! The place is kept immaculate clean and tidy but could probably do with a bit of investment here and there. Great value for money and the staff worked non-stop to make sure everyone enjoyed their stay including endless tea!

Rocky Mountain Hotel

Petra, Jordan

Corinne Hostel

Eilat, Israel

fairly basic but did the job for an overnight before heading to petri.


Probably the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in! I started and ended my trip in Tel Aviv and had 5 nights in total. It has a great atmosphere which the staff work really hard to maintain. They’re really friendly & always happy to give recommendations on things to do and places to eat. The roof garden is a great way to relax at the end of a day with beer and there was always somewhere organised in the evenings to party, that you probably wouldn’t find by yourself. Keep up the great work guys!

Istanbul, Turkey

Brand new hostel, decked out to a really high standard. This is a great concept for a hostel.

El Misti Hostel Copacabana

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This was by far the best al round hostel i stayed in, in Brazil. Our room didn't have air-con that worked and the rooms could have been cleaner but putting that aside the staff were so friendly and helpful. There was also plenty going on to help you meet other travellers. I was there over New Year which i'm sure added to the atmosphere as well. Would definitley stay here again if i return to Brazil

HI Holandes

Ilha Grande, Brazil

This was a really nice place ticked up on a hillside of the island but easily accessible. This is a chilled hostel and one which has families in it rather than just backpackers. It's quiet and relaxing so if that's what you're after then it's perfect. The staff don't speak much english but they are really helpful.

Adventure Hostel Paraty

Paraty, Brazil

The staff here were super friendly and helpful but the place does need a bit of a facelift. There was also a small child staying in the dorm room which was a bit odd.

Bee.W Hostel Bar

Sao Paulo, Brazil

This is a great hostel, really clean and secure in a great location - probably one of the best all round hostels I stayed in, in Brazil. The staff were really helpful and there was a decent free breakfast. My only criticism was it seemed to lack a bit of atmosphere, everyone seemed to keep themselves to themselves in the bar in the evening but it was the weekend, and I think a lot of Brazillians came here which might be why as it wasn’t full of backpackers. .

Iguassu Eco Hostel

Foz do Iguacu, Brazil

The location is perfect for getting to the Brazilian side of the falls. This is definitely a chill out Hostel, and it’s great to relax by the pool! There are no lockers but this place is in the middle of nowhere with a perimeter fence, so I felt perfectly safe leaving my valuables in the room. It’s great value, with plenty of choice for breakfast & the staff were really friendly and if you make the effort to talk to them, they might even teach you a bit of Portuguese!


Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I stayed here for two nights at the start of my trip on a Sunday and Monday which are probably the 2 quietest nights in Lapa / Centro. There wasn't much going on at all and the Hostel was pretty quiet on these evenings,. However, I can imagine on Thursday / Friday this is a great place to be when there are lots of people around and the location is great for the famous Lapa street parties! The staff were friendly and helpful when I asked them anything. The rooms were clean and with air con, thoug
