Goodmorning Lisbon Hostel

Lisbon, Portugal

Just steps from the Metro station and Airport Bus stop overlooking an attractive square, numerous restaurants in the area, good breakfast included. Friendly staff and good facilities in an older but well maintained older building. Rooms facing the square have French doors and small "Juliet" balconies overlooking the square. Note that entrance to the hostel is through the back of a small gift shop at the address given.

Gold Coast

Lagos, Portugal

A friendly and well equipped hostel in the old town, just outside of the busier noisy area, but an easy walk to restaurants. For self caterers, a very well equipped kitchen in which everything works, and a supermarket 5 - 10 minutes away. Ask the owner about his tasty home made organic wine [4 euros/ bottle], or his piri piri sauce. Not a party hostel, a relief for those fed up with noisy drunks coming back and throwing up or urinating on the floor.

Dear Ian, what a fantastic experience and promotion! Thank you. I hope to welcome you again someday, jakub, manager.

Academy Hostel

Florence, Italy

Clean well located hostel, easy walking distance to train station, galleries, main square. Kitchen and dining area is limited, a concern for self caterers. Wine and munchies [pizza, pasta salad] provided for free in early evening. Free basic continental breakfast. Three hour midday lockout is an unwelcome throwback to earlier hostelling days; a problem in bad weather.

Minoo House

Budapest, Hungary

This is more like a 60's crash pad or a squat than a hostel; of course they were free. The list of facilities is a serious misrepresentation. I tried to list the falsehoods but ran out of characters allowed for the review. The area does have some good restaurants and cafes as well as some pretty dodgy characters, beggars [who all know the English word "homeless"], at least one [attempted] pickpocket, and guys pissing in public even during the day. For the money you can do a lot better.

Well, you can't please everyone. Our list of facilities is genuine and accurate, I think think of something you would expect to find and didn't based on our description. Poverty in Budapest is a really big problem, correct, although not the fault of us, and to some maybe worthy of more humane remarks. And I doubt, that if you can compare us to a squat or a '60's crash pad', you have had experience with either one. Cheers, Minoo.

Hostel Postel

Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic

Immaculate, well appointed, friendly and homey small hostel just across the river in a quiet location a short walk from the town square. Not a "party" hostel, a relief for those who are tired of noise and drunks who can't handle their liquor.

Garden Inn

Lijiang, China

Just outside of the tourist trap area yet easy walking to the centre. Taxi can drop you off about one block away.Character Naxi house. Light food available, breakfast from 8:00am, earlier upon request. Hot water and western toilets. Shuttle to Tiger Leaping Gorge at 7:30.


Friendly and helpful, close to shops and restaurants, city buses and subway. Breakfast available from about 7:00 , other meal options throughout the day. Tours and tickets can be arranged. I stayed in the four bed dorm; it was ensuite with hot shower, reading lights and curtains on the bed for privacy. Rooftop terrace good for people watching in the small park next door[ incuding dancing]. Number 303 airport bus stops about 1 kilometer away [10 yuan]

Lakeview Backpackers

Johannesburg, South Africa

Very friendly and helpful, close to airport and shops for self catering, and it does have a lovely view of the lake.

Old Vic Travellers Inn

Nelspruit, South Africa

Hot water for afternoon shower lasted 3 minutes or less. Owner does not allow consumption of alcohol on premises unless purchased from him. Although you will need a vehicle to stay [or be stranded depending on others to give you a lift] , parking is extremely limited and there is a good chance that your vehicle will either be boxed in or will have to be parked on the street.
