Ocara Hostel

Manaus, Brazil
80%

We stayed in a private dbl in a separate block to main house. Good thing: Shared bathroom with only 1 other room BUT in 3 days the bathroom wasn´t cleaned - that´s a lot of toilet paper in a small bin! Dorms in main house looked better though. Fabio is really knowledgeable and helpful but when he´s not about the other staff (who are friendly) don´t know as much about Manaus. BIt of an ant problem in the kitchen and the room. Bed- just an inch of foam for a mattress- but surprisingly comfy

Nice place, especially the terrace overlooking the street. Because of the style of building (courtyard) the rooms are a bit dark, but it´s part of the character!

Hotel Florid Nepal

Kathmandu, Nepal

Booked a deluxe double, reception staff had 'deluxe double' written next to our booking but they tried to set us up in a standard double. We had to ask twice to go to the deluxe room, so watch out for that. Room in itself was clean on arrival, but it would be good if the toilet paper bin had been emptied during our stay! Staff very very keen to sell a tour or trek, to the point of being pushy.

Owner Angelo is very helpful and will go out of his way to assist you. BUT please be aware that if you book this hostel you may not stay at this exact address. Angelo informed us that he accepts more bookings than his hostal can accommodate and uses other nearby hotels to accommodate all his bookings. The hotel he gave us was only a few mins walk, clean, and worth the money paid for it. Angelo will give you a decent room nearby but it may not be the exact hotel you booked.
