Hostel Petero Atamu, Easter Island, Chile
9.7
22nd Feb 2016

A great place to stay for a great price on Easter Island! Staff are friendly and helpful. I was able to rent a good 4WD vehicle for half what it would have otherwise cost, also bike rental. Quiet because it's a bit away from the town, but just a ten minute walk. Perfect! My only complaint: almost no equipment for cooking in kitchen. Otherwise perfect.

Staff were just super (of course there's a lot of turnover here - but I hope it would reflect the managers' choice of staff - We had a lot of fun here and I felt very much welcome with the group although I'm the better part of 40 years older than the staff. Super friendly, helpful, fun to talk to people. Also they do a great job with the barbeque!!

Great place to stay, near the airport. The manager is extremely helpful and friendly and will drop you off/pick you up at the airport as needed. A bit out from the downtown area, but there's not that much to do in downtown Joburg anyway.

A great manager, Rob, makes this place great! Very helpful, friendly, lots of knowledge. Location near airport is perfect for making this your jumping off place for other parts of Africa, including BazBus drop off/pick up at door. Very quiet despite proximity to airport, also near a nice restaurant, Protea Hotel. Wi-fi only in mornings and evenings. Decor isn't much to speak of, if that's important to you.

Jollyboys Backpackers, Livingstone, Zambia

22nd Aug 2015

Jolly Boys is an outstanding hostel, more like a little boutique hotel than a hostel! Everything is kept in tip-top shape and it's very attractive - great ambience. Staff are very friendly and helpful. One pointed out to me that I would be flying out the next day from the OTHER airport across the border in Victoria Falls, NOT the airport in Livingstone. (I hadn't thought about there being 2 different airports so close together and might have missed my flight!) THANKS!!!

The PERFECT hostel for Waikiki! Great, friendly vibe AND was QUIET AT NIGHT so I could sleep. The best of both worlds! Great price!!! Just a block from the great shopping & dining district of Waikiki & the beach. Right off of Kuhio where TheBus will get you anywhere: the Bishop museum, airport, Diamond Head, USS Arizona, downtown, etc. Good kitchen well stocked with staples & equipment. Only complaint: balky Wi-Fi.

Outstanding value! Conveniently located 100 feet from the Garibaldi metro. Many restaurants, shops, groceries &. nearby. Not in a tourist area but access takes only minutes by metro. Spotlessly clean & newly refurbished. Staff are very friendly. They also run the restaurant downstairs with good food for a good price. Note that “en suite” means private sink & shower but SHARED toilet down the hall. Toilet was very clean and I never had to wait to use it. I’d stay here again!

Spotlessly clean, quiet, nice breakfast & snack in the evening. good place to meet people. Also however, sleeping areas are quiet. Doesn't get much better!

A great B&B in the heart of beautiful Siena! Our host was very helpful & friendly & made us all feel most welcome. Nice facilities - spotless, everything works, with a kitchen available for those who wish to cook. When you get here make it a point to look up at the "new" frescoes on the ceiling. They were "recently" painted when the 600 year old building was remodeled - a mere 150 years ago!

Great place to stay in Bologna. I chose a private bath and all was clean, pleasant and in good order. Shared kitchen was handy. Good location between central tourist area & train station. Note NO Wi-Fi and NO internet! You can sign up at McDonald's and use there's or go to the Burger King and use theirs without signing up, though Burger King's is slower. Note also that sign outside is hard to spot. Look for the number of the address.

One of THE best stays I've had ANYWHERE... and in Venice too! Perfect location: Close to the train & bus station & right off the main tourist path, but blissfully quiet. Host, Alessandro, keeps his B&B immaculately clean, cheerful & bright. He fixes great breakfast every morning & is a real joy to meet. You'll soon feel like you're visiting your best friend - who just happens to live in Venice. Wi-Fi throughout. Stop searching & stay here. It's perfect!

A hotel, not a hostel (despite the name). Very basic and a bit run down (showerheads broken, etc.) but clean and comfortable. Good wi-fi in rooms. Well priced & a perfect location right next to the Opera house, museum, etc. To find it just go to the Tirana International Hotel. Star Hotel/Hostel is adjacent and well marked with signs on the building.

Nasho Vruho is a wonderful 300 year old stone house in the Mangalem district. This is the beautiful collection of whitewashed houses that creeps up the side of the hill in so many photos of Berat, a UNESCO site. Rooms have all the modern facilities but are decorated in an atmospheric rustic manner. The owners are very friendly and generous; the man speaks Italian, German, French, and some English. Free breakfast includes home made bread, home made cheeses, home made fig jam, eggs and coffee. In the eve

The toilet leaked urine & excrement onto the bathroom floor every time it was flushed. There was no mattress on the bed, only lumpy box springs - no pad either. Bedsheets were dirty. Room was disintegrating & depressing. Recreation/dining room was dim with only staff playing there. This place would do in a pinch, but you could do a lot better elsewhere!

Best hostel ever! It doesn't get any better than this!! Staff are extremely friendly & helpful & speak English very well. Clean, quiet rooms but with several nice areas for meeting people and partying if you're so inclined. Good location - close to city center but off on a quiet street. Good food and good beer too; try the local beer (Hans) which is only 6 rmb for a large bottle.

This is the best hostel I've stayed in anywhere! The staff are just the greatest!! They will help with directions, general information, etc. and are scrupulously honest. I once carelessly left a crumpled $20 on the desk and walked away - they came chasing me to give it to me! And I've had other examples over amounts large and small.
