DREAM House hostel

Kiev, Ukraine

People always make the difference! The wonderful Natalia at the reception really made my day last Tuesday early in the morning. It was the last day of my trip, rainy, cold and grey, so I had every reason to be in a bad mood, but she provided me with a coffee, a pear, a friendly chat and she called a cheap taxi, so I left the place with a smile! Thanks a lot!

Dear Peter, thank you for such pleasant words. If you decide to visit Kiev again, you the place to stay!

TIU Front Page Hostel

Odessa, Ukraine

I planned to stay here one night, but ended up staying the whole week! Great place to meet people, with a personalized service, a good location, clean rooms and a good atmhosphere. Thanks a lot, Adam and Svetlana!

Funky Mamaliga Hostel

Chisinau, Moldova

Perfect hostel with the friendliest staff ever! The wonderful Anna provided the perfect soundtrack and made the garden even more colourful with a new painting. That garden is a real oasis and makes the hostel a good place to relax or to meet people after exploring, partying or dining out in the city!

Kismet Dao Hostel

Brasov, Romania

Spacious dorms, perfect terrace, super friendly staff and a free beer always makes one feel very welcome ;-)

Rolling Stone Hostel

Brasov, Romania

Great place with its own special character, with a nice common area but in and outside, ideal to meet people!

Freeborn Hostel

Timisoara, Romania

The perfect hostel with a host who makes you feel as if you are family staying over for a visit! Great place to meet people with an excellent location and a nice terrace!

M Montreal

Montreal, Canada

One of the best hostels in the world, and I have stayed in more than a hundred over the years! It's the ideal combination between a hotel and a hostel, and offers the best of both worlds: clean bathrooms (1 per room!), rooms with aircon, lockers and a light at every bed, a juice and croissant breakfast, the perfect location and an amazingly friendly and professional staff, combined with a great bar, daily fun activities, a personal approach and a very reasonable price.

Canadiana Backpackers Inn

Toronto, Canada

Super friendly staff: I arrived in the morning and could only check in after 14h, but I was invited to have breakfast and store my luggage in a personal locker. Great rooftop terrace, good location in a quiet downtown street.

Thanks for the great review! Hope to see you again soon.

Global Village Backpackers

Toronto, Canada

Dirty kichten, no personal lockers, dirty rooms, old run-out building... Even though the staff was friendly and the bar outside seemed nice, I didn't like this place...


What a great and sweet staff! The hostel is great, but its devoted and friendly staff makes it exceptional! The moment I stepped in, I felt welcome and the joint dinners are without any doubt the best ones I ever had in a hostel - and I have stayed in more than a hundred! Every day there is an activity, the rooms are large and clean and the house is beautiful with a nice terrace. Thanks a lot guys for a great stay!

Yesinn @Fortress Hill

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Nice place quite central on HK Island, close to a metro station, on the 15th floor of an appartment building. The only thing missing is a lounge but this will be built on the 9th floor. Helpfull and friendly staff, especially the wonderful (almost) manager Jo, who is always smiling and helping out with any question. Super nice Ikea decorated rooms!

West Lily Hotel

Yangshuo, China

Lily and her husband are extremely helpful and friendly, they can organize a lot of interesting trips and activities are very sharp prices, they rent out bikes, order your bus tickets and so on. Excellent place for exploring Yangshuo in a quiet street just a few steps away from the busy city centre. This is a family run hotel that is highly recommended and provides a warm and very personal service!


Good location and very helpfull staff (a big thank you especially to the wonderful Ivy!). They can organize a nice trip (among others) on the Li River with a pick up at the hostel.

Thank you, It is really nice to stayed with you! hope to see you again!


Best hostel in China! Not only because of a perfect location along the Yangtze river and close to the old and new city centre, and not only because of the hip and trendy decor inside, but mostly because of the super sweet staff! Nicole came to pick us up at the staion (by public) bus and funny bar tender Crispy is always good for a chat at the bar, and also the other staff is always smiling, joking and helping out everyone. A big recommendation!

Teddy Bear Hotel

Mt.Emei, China

Perfect location, around the corner of Baoguo bus station! Andy runs the place in a relaxed way and he always takes the time to answer all questions! Very good and cheap food!


Perfect location next to the bus station. Staff member Loretta was absolutely fantastic: super friendly and extremely helpful, thanks a lot! Good food! The terrace and 'garden' outside provide a nice relaxed atmosphere and make you forget you are in the middle of a huge city.


Very friendly and helpful management! Free pick up at bus station is fantastic and the bar at the hostel is absolutely everything you'd expect from a backpackers place. Top location!

Saga Youth Hostel

Beijing, China

Good place, maybe just a little too far from the closest metro station. Decent breakfast (not included!), not every receptionist is fluent in English but overall friendly service.
