Pushpa Guest House

Pokhara, Nepal
86%

Centrally located in Lakeside and with a friendly host family who will help you arrange things without being pushy to sell you other things. It was pretty cold at night since there isn't any isolation for instance in the windows but that is very common for guest-houses in Nepal though.

Everyone staying in Pokhara should stay one night at a guesthouse at Sangkot. The views are phenomenal both towards Annapurna and towards lakeside. The guesthouses lie very close together so the distances shouldn't be a factor to decide. Panoramic is located at the bottom of the stairs towards the viewpoint and at the edge toward lakeside. Since it is at the edge the birds of pray fly past you just a few meters away where you sit and eat for instance. Recommended for its friendly hosts too.


Alobar1000

Kathmandu, Nepal
80%

At the moment there is a big construction site located right next door so don't expect to sleep in very long. It is located at the end of a dark alley so if you don't like walking home in dark alleys it might not be the place for you at the moment. With that said the area is generally safe and there is very good security there with security staff etc. The staff is friendly and helpful. I recommend taking the airport pickup - it costs about the same as a taxi and you will get straight there.


Suraj Guest House

Varanasi, India
83%

PLaces right where you want to be. Very close to the two most famous ghats and close to the best restaurants for independant travellers. The place is very very hard to find though since it is tucked away from the allay behind a hindy shrine so I recomment the pickup service to find it.

Mewargarh Palace

Had a fantastic welcome here. The family who runs this guesthouse is very warm and helpful and it is located in a good place. Close to the intresting stuff but a bit tuckd away which ment that is was relatively quiet at night which means that you can get a nice sleephere. Another plus for letting me rest on an extra bed for a few hours when i arrived earlier than expected in the morning from the overnight bus and all the rooms were full.

Mystic Jaisalmer is well places in the city. Easy to get to from buses and easy to get to the sights. One problem which I don't know if it is a permanent problem or not however is that the neighbourhood dogs were barking all trhough the night which made sleeping a bit difficult at times.

A decent hostel all in all. It is quite far from most points of intrests though like communications hubs, sights etc. When I arrived using the pickup service from the airport there was no staff arround at the receptetion which could tell me which room/bed I was in though. Luckily another guest was leaving and could tell me who to wake up to get that information. Coud have ended worse that it did otherwise. When awake though the staff is good and helpfull.

Te hostel is located right where you want it to be. close to a lot of sights and relatively easy to get to and from the airport with public transport. I arrived in the middle of the night and had soon gotten my bed so that I could go to sleep. It was very warm during the night as well which is nice in winter when it is chilly outside.

My first stay in the hostel I used it just to sleep, getting in very late and left early the next day to continue travel. For that the hostel is great as it enjoys a great location close to the central train station and a metrosystem stop.

Academy Hostel

Florence, Italy
71%

Excellently located hostel. However - While some would call it "chic" it feels very sterile. The striclt minimal and generally sterile atmosphere can be seen even in the breakfast which whch uses single use plastic cutlery, plats cups etc. Calling it a "home away from home" would in that sense not be correct on to many unless you live in a hospital. It should also be noted that it is very expensive for what you are getting - and the price listed does not even include the city tax of 1Eur/night

Owner Comment (Hide)
You are offensive and unfair, first, you knew the price when you booked, so, if you thought it was expensive you could have booked another place, then it's written EVERYWHERE that the city tax is not included, and that this is common in ALL the Hostels. According to an European law,for having standard cups and cutlery you need special environments for the sterilization that we cannot have,especially in a XVI century building! And, please, don\'t forget you\'re getting breakfast for FREE

A good budget choice for people staying overnight to catch an early flight in the morning. It is reasonably close to the airport but still a few kilometers away. pickup is available however.

Well located hostel. Not in the absolute center of things in the old town but within walking distance. One note - The showers are located on the other side of the common room which means that you need to walk though it after having a shower.

The hostel is well located near the castle although it is on the other side of the hill from the airport bus and trainstation which means that you have to walk steeply uphill and then downhill to reach it.

Ostinatto Hostel

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Looks very much like an institution, a military barrack or something like that. While it is not filthy it is not really clean either. The biggest problem however is that there is a real shortage of powersockets. That means that if you want your camera, cell phone or anything that requires charging now and then you may want to consider staying somewhere else. Thee are a few extra in the basement but that doesn't really solve the problem. It is also very warm during summer.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hola I think your comparison is very severe: a military barrack? Is not very vague to said that? We have a particular minimal design that you can like or not, but we're very far to be a military institution. Usually people loves our design. About the power sockets, we just have a few per room because of security, we provide plenty of them on our basement were you can plug and unplug things in a kind of cage and close it with your own padlock, they are also prepared for you to leave your laptop! I think this is more than enough, you can charge your things safely while you're outside the hostel... We invite you to come back and try them. About the warm, unfortunatelly summer in BA is very warm, that's why we provide you of ventilation. Hope see you around again! OSTINATTO STAFF

Che Lagarto hostel Paraty

A warning: Unfortunately far from everything the staff tells you is true. A simple example of this is the non-working internet which the staff tells you is a problem for all Paraty - which it isn't. The big problem though is that they list the prices in USdollars but ask for payment in reals - At a completely different exchange rate that what you see on Hostelworld. A somewhat fraudulent behavior where they don't tell you that you can and "should" pay in USdollars to get the price you thought.

Shelter City

A somewhat odd thing - a Christian hostel with bible scripture on the walls, study groups etc located in the red light district. Definitely gives you contrasts when you arrive. It is a cam and quite hostel for those more interesting in doing sightseeing and not partying. I have one complaint though - in the dorm I stayed in there were big slightly opened windows which you couldn't close. And open windows in wintertime make for a pretty cold room even though. Unknown if this is common though.

Great facilities, good location etc. However - one important thing if you are out traveling is to be able to travel onwards and the staffs information on that was terrible. In fact - you can't trust it. As an example: Since the road to the airport is a disaster at the moment very few taxi-drivers will drive you there unless you negotiate hard with them. Normally hostel staff would know about about this and advice you accordingly but here they do not which might leave you missing your flight.

Hotel staff is friendly. It is however, like most of Wadi musa, located a kilometer or more uphill from the entrance of Petra. In the morning you can get a free ride there but you will either have steep climb or have to take a taxi in the evening to get back. The hotel is very spartan but functional.

The beduin camp is well outside wadi musa. It ir fairly well located from little petra which is 1.5 km away. Petra on the other hadn must bea reached by car. Available but at an extra cost. You should also note that even though the prise here states 20 you will most probably end up paying 30 if you eat dinner at the camp which you probably will since there is nothing else around.

Somewhat uncentral location for being a hostel in Krakow but not bad in comparison to other places.

Friend's Hostel

Paris, France
30%

A somewhat late commant but important still. This is the worst hostel I have even stayed in. Not only did the hostel increase the price on previously made bookings without any warnings. So when you got there you had two options - pay more for a booking already made to a said price or leave - which can be hard when you arrive late. They also hired a poor guy to act as a \"goalkeeper\" to handle all the people getting angre when they checked in. He started the same day.. poor guy. Avoid at all costs until they change owners which might take quite a while...

The hotel in itself is fair. not very athmospheric but fair quility for a budget hotel in India. Yhou don\'t actually book with the hotel though but with a travelagent which will give you some hassle when you arrive since they of course want to sell you more things. I have ssen worse though.
