Rosy Guest House

Siem Reap, Cambodia
91%

Nice vibe. The bar and restaurant can get packed during the hot hours of the afternoon, but are quieter at night. The staff are very helpful. The mattress was a bit saggy, but no more so than your average hostel. Only real complaint is really more about fellow guests than Rosy itself: the toilets on the top floor got alarmingly close to overflowing before draining. Throw the paper in the bin, folks, not the toilet!


Our Melting Pot

Manila, Philippines

Great vibe. Booked a couple of days, and ended up staying a week! Lots of travelers to meet, great staff, good location in Makati City. Free breakfast is surprisingly good for Asia (note to all you other hostels: stop trying to pass white bread off as food. It isn't). The Old Manila walking tour is great; the Taal volcano tour is decent as well. More tours would be nice (i. e. Mt Pinatubo, Corregidor), but those would just be gravy; OMP is already damn good.

Sunshine Bedz KL

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
94%

Right next to Jalan Alor food street, which is awesome. Great atmosphere, always tons of travelers to meet. The air conditioning in the dorms means none of the usual dorm stench. The staff rocks. The free breakfast is merely adequate, but the place IS right next to Japan Alor food street. Walking distance to the Personas towers, as well as all the major malls and the bus station. Decent common areas, although if it's raining the noise can be deafening. Did I mention Jalan Alor is RIGHT THERE!?

Great location in Miraflores, with a good vibe. They let me store my bicycle and a bunch of touring gear for a week; everything was as I left it when I returned. A better bunk-to-bathroom ratio would improve the place, but there´s not much else missing.


Princesa Maria

Banos, Ecuador

Great place. The communal kitchen is nice for meeting other guests, and nice for the wallet as well in expensive Baños. Staff are very helpful, although as is usual in South American family-run hostels, not all the staff speak English. The hot showers are divine!

Vibes Hostel

Quito, Ecuador
89%

Great place to meet (and party with) other backpackers. The smokers´ lounge and bar are frequently busy. The owner, Santiago, speaks English quite well and is very helpful; other staff are less proficient, although if you speak Spanish you will have no problem. Beer is plentiful but expensive.


Backpackers Lucerne

Lucerne, Switzerland
83%

A solid backpackers' stop. Clean and well-looked-after, if not terribly exciting; like most HI/YHA hostels, you can expect to see a wide age range in the hallways. Could use a few more toilets, but showers and sinks are plentiful, and there are TWO guest kitchens. Nice.

Hostel Feldkirch

Feldkirch, Austria
87%

A beautiful old building. Bunks have lights, which are nice; powerpoints are still few and far between, unfortunately. WiFi is available in only one room, and for all intents and purposes might as well not exist, as it rarely seemed to work. There is a nice garden and a bewildering array of guest kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms mixed in with other rooms off-limits to guests. Staff were friendly and helpful, if not always there when wanted. A good choice for an off-the-beaten-track stop.


Youth Hostel Fussen

Fussen, Germany
87%

Someone was having fun here-- it just wasn't me. Expecting the usual HI curfew crackdown, I was hoping for a good night's sleep; instead, there was some sort of dirndl-and-lederhosen party being thrown by a bunch of middle-aged-Bavarians and their kids. Dozens of them. The broken WiFi was also irritating, but otherwise the place was actually quite nice and clean. A good hour's hike from Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, if you like walking.


The 4You Hostel Munich

Munich, Germany
73%

Noisy. One suspects the place is regularly crowded with groups of German kids fresh out of highschool, so bring your earplugs-- or your booze. The under-bed roller-baskets are an annoying substitute for real lockers, but they do work. Breakfast is uninspiring, but filling. WiFi works, at least in some spots on the ground floor, and the PCs available give free access to Hostelworld, if not much else. Good location between the Hopbahnhof and downtown.


Sir Toby's Hostel

Prague, Czech Republic
93%

Great place. Fun, beautiful, well-equipped and clean. The staff were fabulous, with ready answers to my many questions. Quite far from the centre, however; there are grocery stores and bank machines nearby, but not much else.


Hostel One Prague

Prague, Czech Republic
83%

Nice place, but struggling a bit to find its identity as a party hostel. The staff-organized events seemed to be poorly advertised and didn't seem to start before midnight. Otherwise, nice kitchen facilities, adequate dorms, and some cool decoration-in-progress. The centre and main stations are all within walking distance.


Greg & Tom Hostel

What's not to like? Clean and fun, near everything. Internet worked, and was free. The only thing missing is a proper luggage storage room.

The best way I can think of to describe this place is to compare it to Starbuck's. Like the ubiquitous coffee chain, it's clean, elegant, and serves up a uniformly high quality product; but anyone who shuns Starbuck's as a monolithic, soulless corporation will likely be dismayed by the size and atmosphere at this place. More of a chic budget hotel than a backpackers' hostel.

Hi Michael, thanks for the rating! We have 3 hostels in Vienna and they are all different. I understand what you mean and its true, that Wombats Naschmarkt is not one of the cozy little hostels. For the more backpacker-style hostel check-out Wombats the Base, if you come back to Vienna, its our oldest hostel, but still offers everything you'll need!

Bahaus Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

Hands down the best place to meet (and party) with travelers in Istanbul. The security of the place is maybe a little sketchy, but the staff is top notch, and the free breakfast and evening entertainment are great.


ANZAC House

Canakkale, Turkey
83%

A decent backpackers' stop, in a great location. Close to all the action in Canakkale, right next to the ferry terminal. The in-house travel agency can be a blessing or an annoyance, depending on your style of travel, but the staff was pretty helpful in general. Better showers and security would be a plus. Happily, there were NO bedbugs in evidence, contrary to fears.


Dedekonak Pansiyon

Antalya, Turkey

Excellent location in the old town. Not a big party place (at least in the off season), but good for a nice, quiet stay. The owners were VERY helpful, and I can't thank them enough.

Good place to meet fellow travelers, as it seems fairly busy even in the off season. Great location, an easy walk to some gorgeous valleys for hiking in. The staff are really nice, helpful, and cook up some of the best food I've sampled in Turkey. Definitely recommended.

Raisky Kat Hostel

Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Nice place, and a good location. The family that runs the place was very helpful, although they were not quite fluent in English. Plovdiv isn't exactly a happening place in the off-season, unfortunately, so don't expect to meet other travelers at Raisky Kat in the winter.

Awesome place to meet fellow travelers and have fun. Right at the edge of the old town and within walking distance of most of the museums. Nicer showering facilities would be an improvement, but otherwise the place was great.


Dubrovnik Backpackers Club

The price was right, and the family was very helpful. The full-size kitchen was also quite nice. A bit far from the old town though, and rather empty during the off season.

A little quiet in the winter offseason. The hostel was nice and in a great location, right at the tip of the street market stretching north from Diocletian's palace. Word of warning to the big and/or tall: the bathrooms and kitchen are TINY.

Celica Art Hostel

Ljubljana, Slovenia
73%

Considering how hyped-up this place is, it really isn't all that amazing. Yes, the interior is very artsy and lovely; but the ground floor is given over to open-to-the-public cafes, while the whole building occasionally hosts tour groups. All too often it felt like I had to run a gauntlet of rabble off the street just to find a place to sit-- especially since the wi-fi only works on the ground level.

Amazing location, and a great way to meet fellow travelers. What it lacks in amenities (and, occasionally, cleanliness), it more than makes up for in location and fun!

Great place, lots of services. A little bit of a walk to the city centre, but not what I would consider far. Don't get the breakfast unless you're really lazy.

Great location, but lacking in amenities or a common area. More a base for exploring the city than a place to meet fellow travelers.
