The owner Denise was helpful way-and-above the call of duty. The place is clean, well-run, quiet and great value. The staff member who served us breakfast and checked us in was literally the happiest, friendliest man in Indonesia. Recommended!

POP! Hotel Kuta Beach, Kuta, Indonesia
9.1
1st Feb 2014

Staff were friendly, place was clean. Location is a little odd and they charged our card directly using details held by Hostelworld (which is against the website's rules). We arrived at breakfast 10-mins before it closed at 9:20am, but were refused food -- we complained at reception and were finally given breakfast. Otherwise, we recommend POP as a good value option in Kuta.

Great hostel and staff were awesome. Would take a bullet for Sofia and the waffle girl. Room at top was perhaps over-priced though, especially with electrical problems... Nevertheless, enjoyable stay overall.

The surprise '100 baht management fee' upon check-in was not cool, and I believe it's against Hostelworld policy... Only once had hot water in 4 days - but not a big deal... Also rumours that the walk-in price was less. Otherwise, the staff were nice and it's a great resort/location - complete with swimming pool, loungers and talking bird on site. It's a shame, as the resort could easily make changes if they were to read/respond to reviews - then the dorm wouldn't be as abandoned.

Upon entering SpicyThai, I was immediately inducted into a magical maelstrom of awesome. Dougie fed me grapes as I was serenaded nightly by a dozen scantily-clad large-bosomed Thai virgins. For breakfast, I feasted upon frosted doughnuts plucked from the horn of their resident unicorn ridden by a burly Scotsman. Recommended 10/10.

21st Jan 2012

Unfortunately both the hot water and the dorm door lock were not working... I'd say both are pretty essential when paying for a 'cut above' / 'flashpacker' hostel... The staff were friendly otherwise and I got the impression that the issue was temporarily - but v.unfortunate that both were broken at the same time. There was nothing to stop anyone walking into the dorm.

Good: Warm & incredibly friendly staff! Clean rooms. Bad: The guidebook is right, it's very overpriced for Thamel. Also, I felt a bit scammed because they advertised wifi on Hostelworld but after checking in, I was told it was a whopping 70/hr. Free wifi is all over Thamel, so I recommend those who require access look around. Acme should state on their page that the Wifi is charged for. thanks.

India House Backpackers Hostel, New Orleans, USA

8th Aug 2009

One of the best hostels I've been to. Far superior to the alternatives in New Orleans. It's part hostel, past commune for some long-term residents - some of whom aren't the friendliest. I wasn't the only one to be randomly upset by the older Liverpudlian fellow, for instance. Otherwise, this is by far the best and most fun option for the city.
