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!

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
