The Hanok & Spa Hostel

Daegu, South Korea

The map led me to another hostel, which manages this Hanok Spa Hostel. The Hanok Spa on that day visit no staff. Main door was open, even at late night. I also did not get a key for the room . At first night room door was open, because one other person shared room with me. At second night when back at midnight. somebody had locked the room door. I feared that I have already to sleep in the cold lobby, but fortunately some staff of nearby pub opened the door. Room was ice-cold. heating turned off

Flying Pig Uptown

Amsterdam, Netherlands

A&O Aachen Hauptbahnhof

Aachen, Germany

modern, clean and efficient hostel in a perfect location near the railway station, however wothout special character. For all add-ons like sheet, breakfast one would have to pay extra, which makes the hostel a bit expensive.

Luxembourg City Hostel

Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

Good hostel in an expensive city, nice location, great staff. Good breakfast buffet and very good dinner to be recommended.

Osio Backpackers

Cordoba, Spain

nice hostel in old town . It was easy to find. Rooms are a bit crammed with many beds. Nice courtyard, but was too cold to sit there in winter.

La Banda Rooftop Hostel

Seville, Spain

nice hostel with good dinner and good atmosphere and nice rooftop terrace (although in winter a bit cold). But there were too many beds in the room, so all was a bit crammed

Busan Pobi Guesthouse

Busan, South Korea

Great hostel ! Perfect location near market , beach and metro station, friendly staff and all very efficient and clean.

Coolzaam Guesthouse

Gyeong-ju, South Korea

nice hostel in old house , easy to find if one follows the description. It was winter time and the blanket was warm. As usual in South-Korea, heating systems can be a bit unusual. In main lobby room, there was no heating and it was a bit cold there, in room a bit heating from the floor or one can get warm hot air from aircon or an electricity warming from blanket.

Memory Guesthouse JB

Johor Bahru, Malaysia

A very basic and messy house. Taking the single room for a few Ringgit extra was a mistake. Its a like a prison cell with just a bed inside and the small fan was not fixed properly, so that the room was very hot. The owner tries to fix all matters by himself, also in the bathroom, but these are mostly very basic solutions. There are some malay food stalls around the house, but nothing much to do around there. Sitting outside in the common area is no fun, too hot and all very messy.

Sunshine Hostel

Rome, Italy

nice room and clean. Totally unacceptable is the fact that the hostel often seems to have no staff. I arrived about 40 minutes after the indicated arrival time. The owner reminded me that I was lucky that she waited for me. After checking in, the owner left me alone in the hostel. In the interest of the owner and the guests, a guest should never be left alone in a hostel. There are always bad people who leave and take belongings of guests away.

Ostello di Perugia centro

Perugia, Italy

wonderful hostel. Nic e and spacious room. Top-loaction in old town. Italian Fresco at the ceiling in the common room. Fantastic city view from some rooms and very friendly staff. Only little disadvantage was, that the hostel is closed from 11 am to 4 pm, a bis inconvenient, if one arrives with some luggage during day time.

Hostel Pisa

Pisa, Italy

perfect hostel. Very friendly and welcoming staff (especially the Filippino guy), they offered a nice small dinner buffet with drink at a resonable price of 5 EUR. Hostel has a nice common room and garden to chill out and chat with other people. Clean and spacious rooms.

Art Factory

Buenos Aires, Argentina

A very good choice. Quiet street between San Telmo and city. Good rooms, but no day-light in the rooms. Enough toilets and showers, although shower cubicles very small. The best is the friendly and easy going staff and the nice rooftop bar. Also very good breakfast. Beautiful old house with nice paintings.

Hostel Colonia

Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay

nice place in good location. Good breakfast

Dolce Vita Hostel

Montevideo, Uruguay

nice hostel in good location, easy walk to city. Rooms o.k., but without window, can be slightly nopiisy if many people in common area. Very good breakfast, nice bread and marmalde

Kerana Hostel

Encarnacion, Paraguay

very nice staff, and good and spacious rooms. Perfect location

Hostel e Pousada Natureza Foz

Foz do Iguacu, Brazil

y clean ROOms and very helpful staff, gave me some good tips. Perfect location very close to bus station (local bus station) where buses to waterfalls and Itaipu leave. No lockers in the room.

Hostel Park Iguazu

Puerto Iguazu, Argentina

very friendly guy at reception (Gaston) . Nice garden and pool, perfect location.Not much space in the windowless dorm-room. At evening good atmosphere to sit in garden, they played some goo d chill-out music.

Ferienhaus Hostel Salta

Salta, Argentina

not much space in the room. Grotty bathrooms. Otherwise its go.k., good location and nice staff.

Hostal El Arbol

La Serena, Chile

I was booked for the beach hostel, which was not clear for me at time of booking. But it was great. Nice house with abig garden. Perfect to hang around with other backpackers at evening. I slept in a nice dorm in a small house besides the main house. When I arrived at the city hostel, the owner brought me by car to the beach hostel. THe only small disadvantage of the beach hostel is that the area around the hostel is very dark. The owner said the city is safe, but one might feel a bit unsafe.

Angel Hostal

Valparaiso, Chile

wonderful hostel near an area with many good bars. Very friendly and nice owner, she gave me valuable tips and prepared very good breakfast. Room was quiet and spacious

Aji Hostel

Santiago, Chile

great hostel, good backpacker party mood during the small dinner they offer. The friday BBq dinner for a moderate price of 4000 CLP was also good fun. Some staff meets the people at evening for some barhopping. Rooms are rather packed, not much space there. Hostel is easy to reach by metro.

Azabache Hostel

Santiago de Compostela, Spain

one of the best hostels, I have ever stayed : very friendly and helpful staff, large , bright rooms with a lot of space, perfect location, and very good bathrooms . Its also located in a nice old house. I really enjoyed my stay there so much !!

Footprints Hostel

Singapore, Singapore

Well managed hostel in a good location in Little India. Good breakfast and large nice common room. There were enough showers and toilets, so no queuing up at morning. Unfortunately only, on the day, when I spent the night there, the aircon did not work properly and people left windows open, so mosquitos could have come in.

Piya Hotel/Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

I traveled a few times to Istanbul and this was the best hostel. In a small, quiet street a cozy hostel, not very big, in a wooden house. Very good breakfast. Very friendly owner. As it is a smaller privately-owned hostel it does not have 24-hours reception.

A&O Dresden Hauptbahnhof

Dresden, Germany

A&O chain knows its business. Very well run hostel near the railway station. Nothing to complain . Of course, ist a very big house, can be many guests during the peak season. According to A&O policy, all additional items go extras like bedsheets or breakfast

A&O Dortmund Hauptbahnhof

Dortmund, Germany

very big, good and efficient hostel with friendly staff near the railway station

Hostel San Marino

San Marino, San Marino

The hostel with rooms, facilities etc itself is o.k. and one can be happy to have a budget option in San Marino, where usually hotels are expensive. But there is one big problem at weekend. The pub downstairs is extremely noisy. I couold not get sleep there. Only option was to go to the pub and have a few beers until they closed at 3 am. The fast-food restaurant besides the pub is horrible. Bus passing by the hostel from Rimini to old town stops service early at 7.30 pm in low season.

Budget Hostel Angeles

Angeles, Philippines

Finally, Clark has a good backpackers hostel for those who are on transit with low cost airlines in Clark and are not up for the adult-industry in Angeles. Cozy atmosphere in the main hall, a very friendly western owner who likes to chat with his guests, a nice breakfast with tasty bakeries, good WIFI and a safe location in a quiet side street in the korean village, this makes the budget hostel a perfect stay. 3 km to airport, can walk to avoid expensive taxi. Jeepneys at daytime to city

Hostel Dandelion

Taichung, Taiwan

A well managed hostel with cozy rooms and living room for breakfast and hang around. Very friendly owner. For non-chinese speaking guests it may be a bit challenging to reach the hostel. 2 buses to take (bus 161) and at the hospital there was no bus stop indicated for the connecting bus 146. The "art-road" where hostel is located is nice and a safe area.

Youth Hostel Meetingpoint

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Top-location. One of the highlights is the bar with good music. The breakfast for 2,50 EUR is well worth the money


Newcastle upon Tyne, England

nice hostel in a good location, nothing to complain

KEX Hostel

Reykjavik, Iceland

really a good hostel, very well managed with friendly staff. Breakfast is a bit too expensive. Its better to do self catering or to go to the nearby subway for breakfast.

Dallas Hostel

Puerto Princesa City, Philippines

Nice hostel , good atmosphere and good coffee !! The hostel owner is happy to arrange tours and motorcycle taxis, but one should always check for the prices outside. The motorcycle to Honda Bay arranged by the hostel was too expensive. The owner recommended us the newly opened Dallas Hostel in Sabang, which was one of my best hostel experiences

Bed´nBudget Hostel Hannover

Hannover, Germany

Not a typical backpacker hostel to chat with other backpackers. One has a bed with a cutain, so slep will be very good even in the big room . Good breakfast bugffet in the hotekl nearby for additional 6 EURO. Overall very clean and convenient. Male shoewers were like in a spotrts club, all shower together no privacy. This is no problem for me, but people from differnt cultural background may feel a bit uncomforable with that.


Varna, Bulgaria

nice hostel, perfect location, cool people

Art-Hostel Riverside

Skopje, Macedonia

very nice hostel, good breakfast, friendly staff, very cheap. And a top-location near the river and the bus station. Really easy to find if one reads the Google-Map carefully. One may have to queue up at shower, if its peak time in the morning.

Hostel Kosmopolit

Nis, Serbia

Really nice hostel. Very clean and convenient, nice kitchen to hang around and WIFI works very well. Owner loves to have guests and chat with them and gives detailed tips. The hostel is in a quiet residential area, the Google-map is not so correct, but the owner has posted signboards so that one can find it or maybe ask some people on the street.

Bilbao Akelarre Hostel

Bilbao, Spain

Perfect hostel with very freindly and nice staff. Very clean and well organized. Convenient location near an underground station, but one can also walk (around 15 minutes to 30 minutes) to Guggenheim museum, bus station and old town.


a lovely old house with nice sea-view . Good location not far from the ferry. Very friendly owner. Can really recommend to take some time and spend one or more nights on Gozo in this hostel, not just come for a day trip.

Europa Hotel

Sliema, Malta

good value for money in an excellent location. I did not have high expectations after I read very bad comments on Tripadvisor. But you get what you pay for. Simple room, but clean. No aircon, no heating, when I visited in March the room was very cold , but there were plenty of blankets.

Green Kiwi Backpacker Hostel

Singapore, Singapore

I tried already several hostels in Singapore, and this was really the best one. Spacious, not so crammed, very clean, friendly and a good connection with MRT. What do we want more ?

Suna Hotel

Ankara, Turkey

Nice clean and comfortable rooms at low prices. Very convenient location near Metro, railway station and citadel. Of cours, the Ulus area is not the best quarter of Ankara. Prostitution is around this area during night, but it seems that tis hotel does not allow guests with prostitutes, so its safe.

Hostel Mostel Veliko Tarnovo

Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria

Best hostel of my big Balkan Trip, such a nice old house and really nice and hospitale staff. Good to meet other travelers. It was really gret fun

City Smile Hostel

Banja Luka, Bosnia And Herzegovina

The best hostel of all my Balkan trip. Nice house with terrace and the best is the very helpful and friendly owner. Banja Luka is a must do stopover for those who want a break from too touristic towns and want to enjoy this nice hostel.

Youth Hostel Zagreb

Zagreb, Croatia

A useful and efficient hostel close to the railway station. Nice rooms, good showers, do not expect some special nice atmosphre

Rodem House

Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

A new hostel in a very good central location in Bishkek. It is important to have a good location in Bishkek, because the city is very dark in the evening , not well lightened and can be dangerous in some areas. The hostel is managed by very friendly Koreans who gave me a lot of help for my next destination Karakol. Its not very cheap, but worth the money. The dormitory room is very spacious and there is a nice big common room. Very delicious breakfast (american or Korean) is included.

Aloha Hostel

Paris, France

Good, quiet location, I had overall good sleep despite the many school classes in the hostel. Overall everything is simple, do not expect too much in such an expensive city like Paris. Breakfast was good. There are several technical problems with the shower bottoms (3rd floor) which you have to press extremely hard to get water and several people complained that they were knocked out with the badges. Staff is efficient and polite, but do not expect any smile in this stressful city !

YMCA Universitaria Hostel

Bucharest, Romania

Nice hostel in a quiet residential area in Bukarest, nevertheless it is in about 15 minutes walking distance only to Piata Universitate. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice courtyard to sit outside and one can even play basketball there. The bathroom and toilet downstairs could not be locked when I was there. Big cozy sleeping room. Unfortunately, when I booked, the indications on Google Map were wrong, but the hostel sent me an e-mail to inform me about the exact location.

Chisinau Hostel

Chisinau, Moldova

Nice hostel , staff very helpful for all kind of activities. A bit outside of the city, but easy to reach and good description hw to reach the hostel.

Transylvania Hostel

Cluj Napoca, Romania

A really perfect hostel with very helpful, friendly and welcoming staff !

Welcome Inn Backpackers Hostel

Singapore, Singapore

Really perfect ! Very clean rooms,good showers, comfortable beds, good aircon, very nice staff and good breakfast. Cozy, spacious lobby. Its in the busy Little India area with many cheap restaurants and close to Mustafa with 24-hours shopping !

404 Hostel

Cologne, Germany

Nice small hostel with a personal touch, where you can feel like in a family house with cozy rooms and kitchen. Will come again.


Its a sport-hostel, mainly for groups, but also for individula guests a good option. Very clean and efficient. There is a bar downstairs and a good restaurant with reasonable prices in the sports-complex. Its not really the best area in the northern suburbs of Essen, but transport with the U17 is quick and efficient .

Dragon Inn Hostel

Singapore, Singapore

A perfect hostel if one needs a good sleep. Good location in a typical Singaporean shophouse near the lively "little India" quarter. Rooms a bit crammed, but have a good ari-con. As usual in Asia, one has to pull off the shoes before entering the rooms. Bathroom cells are combined toilets and showers, a bit small but functional.

Lette`m Sleep Hostel

Nuremberg, Germany

Good and convinenient hostel in a oerfect location in the old town and near the railway station. Large rooms with carpets which are not overcrowded with beds. The hostel has a cozy kitchen with free coffee/tea/internet (one PC)

Birmingham Central Backpackers

Birmingham, England

We nearly got locked into our room, as one locker did not work and it was hard to repopen the door from inside the room. The hostel has another building a bit accoss the street, the small lanes are not lively during niht as it is in a industrial area. Nevertheless, the lcation is close to Bullring area and close to many nightlife spots. Breakfast was nothing too much, toast, jam, cookies, and instant coffee.

Tashkent Hotel Elite

Tashkent, Uzbekistan

Good location in a residential area which seems quite safe in the south of Tashkent. The city (Broadway/Opera) is easy to reach by the cheap and efficient green buses from the nearby crossing of Glinka Road and Shota Rustaveli Road (Buses 38,57, 58, 67). Bus No. 67 goes in the sounthern direction also to the airport. At this busstop, you also find several cheap local restaurants, shops and an Internet-Shop. The nearby Park Bobur is especially liveley on weekends in the eveneing with drink stalls and sometimes live music. The hotel is also ready to pick up guests from the airport for USD 10,00 (highly recommended if arrival is late in the eveing, as one has to be careful with local taxidrivers in the evening. Nice comfortable rooms in an old renovated building with Satellite TV (CNN and BBC World available). Lobby and breakfast room are nicely decorated with old furniture. Aircon in the room was a bit noisy. Staff very friendly and helpful. They can change money and arrange transport like taxi. Good breakfast buffet inculding a tasty omelette which can be served on demand

Budget Backpackers

Edinburgh, Scotland

Perfect location in the old town and close to some nightclubs on Cowgate. Very easy going and friendly staff. Good value for money cold buffet breakfast for GBP 2,-- in a nice dining room with colourful paintings.


Very good location near the railway station and some streets with good pubs. Very freindly and easy going staff. Good breakfast buffet for just 3,50 EUR.
