Plum Flowers House

Guangzhou, China

The hostel was clean and in a good location (close to metro, eateries, shops). Plum is a very good hostel owner and host making sure all the people staying are at ease and are enjoying their time at the hostel. Admittedly this is not a party hostel but if you're looking to party you can party out in town and rest your head quietly back at the hostel. Would recommend and thanks for the stay Plum! :)

Iguana Backpackers

Montanita, Ecuador

The hostel is in a great location only a 50-100m from the main town center which is perfect depending on if you want party than come home to a quiet bed. I stayed in the upstairs loft which was awesome - fresh air, mosquito nets to keep the bugs out and peaceful. I would recommend this hostel as they have activities very night but its quiet time after 11pm so if you want to head out you can or just sleep easy once everyone leaves :)

Erupcion Hostel Banos

Banos, Ecuador

The hostel is located right near the central park and is close to everything. Enrique is the man and is very helpful, informative and responsive to any issues (hot water ran out but it was fixed in a few minutes). The breakfast is very tasty and the atmosphere in the hostel is great. We had a movie night one of the nights which was nice. Google the dog is super friendly and great company. Thanks Enrique and the team for the awesome stay! Highly recommended!

Curitiba Casa Hostel

Curitiba, Brazil

The hostel was perfect for my needs - I was there for 4 days. It is very close to the Botanical Gardens which is also on the city scenic tour line. The staff were friendly and very helpful and the beds are SUPER COMFY & the showers were very clean! Will recommend.


The hostel was in a good location of Botafogo however I booked for a 12 person dorm and was given a 15 person dorm. The hostel was clearly out to make money over the world cup period because we were charge for everything... credit card payments, when friends moved elsewhere and said we could have their reservation for the night etc. Cleanliness wasn't that great either - bed bugs! The place was being exterminated on the second day but they wanted us to keep the old sheets to use again!Go figure?

WE Hostel Design

Sao Paulo, Brazil

The hostel is a little far from the metro station but is in a lovely part of town. The houses in the neighborhood are well looked after and there are a lot of places to eat and drink just around the corner from the hostel. The hostel safe were brilliant & very helpful. The hostel also has its own outdoor bar, big screen tv & table tennis area. Very clean hostel - would recommend. Thanks for the stay WE hostel! :)


Awesome / clean hostel! One of the best I've stayed at. Beach is so close by and the people are friendly and helpful. Must see - Getty museum!!

USA Hostels Ocean Beach

San Diego, USA

The room I stayed in had a toilet and bathroom which is good but not when people get up super early to have a shower / go for a poo etc... Oh take ear plugs and if you book online you get a free bottle of champange (bonus) good location - close to beach!

Banana Bungalow Hollywood

Los Angeles, USA

Great place to chill out with free internet, coffee (average but free) and breakfast. Great atmosphere to watch the football world cup.

Lub d Bangkok Silom

Bangkok, Thailand

Good, clean hostel - had a private room so can't really comment on general security for dorm rooms. Staff were very helpful.


The hostel was very well looked after by the onwer. I went at the end of Sept and it was getting to the close of the season so was the only person in the hostel for 2 days. There is free tv, internet, kitchen so time passes quickly when you feel like chiling out. I would def recommend the hostel.
