Really liked it here, its really close to the markets and to pub street. Staff were lovely and really helpful with organising tuk tuks for trips. Free pick up from the airport to which was really good. Would definitely stay again.

Really nice hostel. The owner was really friendly and helpful and sorted out all my trips for me. Really clean, good wifi and spacious dorms. There are lockers in the room but only small ones. The only downside is you have to cross a very busy road to get to the old town which can sometimes take a while!!

An interesting hostel! Good points - clean, good free breakfast,spacious rooms and comfy beds with lockers under. Bad points - feels a bit like a shed - concrete floor and not proper walls mean you can hear everyone in the bathroom and if people are watching films which can be annoying if you have to be up early.

In Da Lodge

Ubud, Indonesia

Good hostel, nice communal areas and tasty cheap food available from the bar there. Not overly secure as you don't get given a key to dorm rooms and there are no lockers in them. Also the beds are made of bamboo so can be very creaky! Good location, easy to get to main part of town and the rice fields. Would recommend doing the cycling tour you can book at the hostel - was awesome.

Frasers On Rainbow Beach

Rainbow Beach, Australia

Rooms were good - spacious and clean but the kitchen lets the hostel down. There was hardly any equipment so you couldn't cook properly and you are given metal plates and cups to use which makes everything taste metallic. Also no free WiFi. I stayed at Pippies hostel in Rainbow beach as well and that was definitely better than Frasers.

An ok hostel. Plus sides are clean, nice food in the restaurant and really helpful staff at the travel desk. Downsides - they charge you an extra admin fee on top of the rate, they tried to charge me and a couple of others extra, the WiFi is very expensive and its very very quiet. Stayed at Smugglers Cove on my way back and it was definitely better value for money.

The hostel itself was OK, the room I stayed in was very spacious with comfy beds. It is the opposite side of the city to the main attractions but close to blue bridge ferry teminal. The main problem with it is there are a lot of long term people living there who took over the kitchen and common areas in the evening, meaning no 1 else had anywhere to socialise.

Montenegro Hostel

Nice hostel right in the centre of the old town. The staff were really friendly and there was a good kitchen and common room. Was only 2 toilets and 1 room with showers so imagine it might be a bit of a wait in high season. As it is right in the centre it does get noisy at night from the bars and with church bells ringing every hour, but would definately stay here again.

Ostello S. Fosca

Venice, Italy
66%

Came just before the hostel started its summer season so had no kitchen and had to be out of the hostel by 9.30 every day so it could be cleaned. The dorm I stayed in looked like it had air con but it didn't make any difference so the rooms were absolutely boiling even at night, meaning it was very hard to get any sleep. No kitchen facilities or anywhere to really mix with other travellers. On the plus side a good location but I'd probably pick somewhere different to stay next time.

Fab hostel! Very clean, in good location in the old town and really nice roof terrace. Giovanni is amazing, he makes you feel so welcome in his home, tells you all about Napoli and the best places to see and eat and makes it a really nice sociable hostel. Definitely want to come back and stay here for longer next time to explore all the places nearby. Loved it!

A bit of a walk away from the main attractions in Rome but really close to the train station and easy to find. No kitchen facilities and the shutters in my dorm were locked shut so we had no window but the roof terrace was really nice and a good place to meet people. Good bar to and cheap for Rome prices! Staff really nice and friendly when I was there to.

Good location right near the train station and easy to walk to everywhere in Florence. Stayed in a 9 bed dorm which was a massive room with good sized lockers and reading lights for each bed. Free walking tours were really interesting and breakfast had the most random food but was quite tasty! Downsides were the staff seemed fairly rude and uninterested and the shower flooded the bathroom everytime it was used.

Nice hostel, large rooms with good sized lockers in.
