Isaacs Hostel

Dublin, Ireland

Reasonable value. We stayed in an 8 man dorm room which got very hot overnight. Also, we were right next to the train line so got woken up very early by the noise of trains each morning, which was not appreciated as we were on a stag do!

Istanbul, Turkey

Nice hostel, great location just by Galata Tower, close to lots of restaurants and bars. Friendly staff and nice clean rooms. One point to note that applies here and a lot of other places in Istanbul - you are asked to put used toilet paper in a bin (which is emptied every day), rather than flushing it down the toilet. This is quite strange and slightly off-putting, but not a massive problem.

Oak Hotel

Tokyo, Japan

Fairly standard business hotel in Tokyo, nothing special but nothing to complain about either. Located 10 minutes walk from Ueno station so a good base for seeing this area but also for getting around Tokyo.


A good hostel, not far from station on Osaka loop line, plenty of amenities nearby (restaurants etc). Has cheap internet facilities and lots of information about what to do. Was very quiet when we were there- it would have been nice to see some more encouragement to socialise with other people at the hostel.

Hotel Chuo

Osaka, Japan

Standard business hotel, no ensuite facilities. Free internet is quite useful. Good location, 3 minutes walk from Shin-Imamiya station on the Osaka loop line, a couple of stops away from the Dotonburi area which is the main area for nightlife.


Kyoto, Japan

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed. Fantastic location, very clean. The owner Yashi will take you to places at night that you would never find on your own, and speaks very good English. The fact that there are only 10 beds in total means you get to know the other people staying there. For anyone going to Kyoto, you need to stay in this hostel!!!


Very small rooms, I definitely needed a double room just for one person. Otherwise a standard Japanese business hotel.

Urban Central

Melbourne, Australia

One of the best hostels I have even stayed in. Rooms are excellent, bar is great with lots of entertainment organised and very friendly staff. Also only 10 minutes walk to the centre of melbourne.

VLA Surry Hills

Sydney, Australia

In general OK. Would advise getting ensuite room as shared bathroom facilities not very good. Location is very close to central station and not far from excellent pubs and restaurants.


Great place, bar is good during the day but not so great at night when it becomes a nightclub and is very expensive. Dorms excellent, very clean and great bathroom facilities.
