This is a really great hostel. The rooms and beds are great and comfortable. The showers are pretty good. The pool and bar area is wonderful. The staff is really nice and friendly but everything is very slow. It took over 30 minutes to check in and anytime you needed to ask for something it took a long time.

It's a really beautiful hostel with an excellent staff. It's really clean and has a great bar. There are lots of good places to eat nearby and it's really close to the trains. I would definitely stay here again.

I really liked this hostel. The staff is so great. They're really helpful and fun. One of them even took us to a karaoke bar one night! It was a great time! The location is excellent, just steps away from the geishas, right in Gion. Near lots of sights, restaurants, and bars. Overall highly highly recommended.

Well it's a good hostel except that we got bed bugs. We reported it to the staff and they didn't seem surprised. They just changed our room and we later saw they had put someone else in our bed bug room. I would definitely not stay here or recommend this place considering their lax attitude about bed bugs.


IS@K Guest House

Seoul, South Korea

First of all, the hostel is really clean. Except for the dorm room I stayed in, which was MUCH more the fault of the other guests. They were all long term guests and had made the room really cluttered and messy. It was clean but there was stuff everywhere. I could barely walk through the room. This is obviously not the hostels fault but asking them to keep tidy would be a good idea. The staff, however, was lovely. Really sweet and helpful. Despite my bad roommates I would stay here again.


Sp@Itaewon Guesthouse

It's a pretty crowded, small hostel but it's nice. The staff is really helpful and fun. The location is good (if you don't mind walking up hill and a lot of stairs, but it's really not bad). The bathrooms were really dirty though. There were leftover toiletries everywhere and hair covering the drain. Last time I was there the bathroom was very clean so not sure what's going on. I've stayed at other hostels in the area and this one is the best by far, in my opinion. I'll be back.


Backpackers Travellers Inn

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
57%

This hostel is very cheap . But, I think I would rather spend a little more and get something a lot nicer. The lady who works the desk is not friendly or helpful. She seems put out by tiny requests and isn't helpful. Our room was on the 4th floor and the Wifi doesn't work up there. The bathrooms are in rough shape and do not have toilet paper (you have to pay for it). They don't provide sheets either. Although our room was so hot we couldn't use them anyway. Overall, there are better choices.


Kimberley House

Penang, Malaysia
69%

It's a really beautiful building that is cutely decorated. It's a new hostel so perhaps some of the kinks will be worked out. Staff wasn't rude but they weren't helpful either. Bed was pretty comfortable. Georgetown is very small so it's hard to have a bad location. Overall I have stayed in much better hostels in Penang but I think this one will get better with time.

It's a great, fun hostel. It's a bit expensive for KL but you get a lot for that money, including a good free breakfast, clean place with nice beds and bathrooms, a fun and helpful staff, and much more. I have stayed in several hostels in KL and this is easily my favorite.


@Hua Lamphong

Bangkok, Thailand

I only stayed here for about 12 hours but I found everything to be excellent. The staff was really nice, it was very clean, and the restaurant was delicious. The beds were really comfortable and the lockers are huge. They even provide towel, soap, and shampoo. I can't say much about the location except that it's very convenient being near the train station and there are loads of tuk tuks and taxis outside.


Old Penang GuestHouse

Penang, Malaysia

This is my third time staying here because it's a great hostel. Staff is very friendly and helpful and the location is excellent. The beds are comfy but you can ever so slightly feel the springs in them. I also really don't like when hostels provide lockers but no locks. However, those complaints are so minor and I would absolutely recommend staying here.

This hostel is definitely a good choice, especially considering the price. The rooms are fine, the showers and bathrooms are fine, the location is good. What makes this place great, though, is the staff. Every single one of them was so friendly and so helpful. They make a decent hostel a great hostel. I would recommend it and I will be back.

The location is great. The staff is okay. Not rude or anything but not overly helpful. The beer and food are really expensive and they charge 15 Yuan for a map. It's clean though and the beds are decent. For the price and location I would say it's a good choice.

Hotel Central Station

This is definitely a great place to stay if you are just in Milan quickly, it is so close to the train station. It is not somewhere to meet people and have fun. But the place is incredibly clean and the staff is lovely. I had a really nice dorm room and shower.

The staff is so great here. Very friendly and helpful. They are definitely the best part about the hostel. In fact, I have only one complaint. The AirCon! You have to ask for it to be turned on in your room but they don't leave it on. Every night around 3am I would wake up sweating and have to go downstairs and ask for it to be turned back on, only to wake up 3 hours later with it off again. Rooms were boiling! Other than that, very good.

This was a good hostel in a great location in Madrid. The staff is very nice and helpful. The check in time is WAY too late. A bit annoying but no big deal. Overall a good stay and I would stay here again.

There is nothing bad about this hostel, but nothing great about it either. Lisbon is very small but this hostel isn't close to any of the main things. It was very clean and pleasant enough though.


Equity Point Metropol

It was a pretty good hostel, not great but not bad. The breakfast was not very good. There are no lockers but rooms are locked. The bar was nice but the beer was expensive. The WiFi is for 30 minutes only at a time so it keeps kicking you off, you can sign back it but it is annoying.


77%

This hostel has a few good things going for it. The woman working there, is great. The cleaning staff is great and the hostel was very clean at all times. It was a really fun hostel, mostly because of the other guests there but it was such a fun time. The bad things are mostly Abdir, not sure exactly his name, but he is incompetent and inappropriate. The screwed up everyone\'s bookings and people showed up with no room or in dorms when they had booked doubles, etc. Th

Fernloft City (Chinatown)

Singapore, Singapore
100%

Fernloft is such an amazing hostel for so many reasons but mostly because of Aunty Aini!!! She is so great. There aren't enough words. She is fun and accommodating. She not only knows where all the best sights and food are but she will sometimes go with you. The hostel is great and clean and the beds are comfortable and the location is great, close to everything. But Aunty Aini is what really makes this hostel the best!!! STAY HERE!! Don't even look elsewhere.

This hostel was really great! It is going through a lot of changes right now and I am sure it will be even better once it's finished. The owner and the staff are spectacular. They are all so friendly and helpful. The beds are very nice (no bunk beds!!!) and the room is nice. Also, the breakfast was delicious!!

This was a really great hostel. It is very close to the main tourist area and it is a lot of fun. Definitely the best part is the staff, specifically the tuk tuk drivers. They are so friendly and helpful. A trip to the temples with them shouldn't be missed. This hostel is a great place to stay for sure!

I have nothing but great things to say about this place! The location is great and the rooms are very clean and large. However, the best thing about this place is the owners! There is helpful and then there's Happy Inn! They went above and beyond every single step of the way and were so so helpful and friendly. If they didn't have an answer to a question, they called someone who did. Everything about the stay was great but they made it wonderful!! And adorable kids, by the way!

Budget Hotel Tourist Inn

Amsterdam, Netherlands
70%

There was nothing really great about this hostel and nothing really bad. It's hard to have a bad location in Amsterdam as it's so small. The staff is good. Very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit small and the free breakfast is only from 8-9:30, which is kind of short. I think it's a bit expensive for what you get. I am not sure that I would stay here again, but it wasn't bad.

Overall it was an okay hostel but nothing that great. It definitely doesn't have a fun, social vibe like a lot of hostels. The charge a lot for internet and the computers are painfully slow when they work. It does have a great location, close to a lot of stuff. I don't think I would stay again though.

Willy Wallace Hostel

Stirling, Scotland
70%

The staf was very nice and the fellow hostelers were a lot of fun. The hostel is right by the train station so that is good but it isn't that close to all the attractions. Luckily Stirling is very small so it isn't too much trouble. There are no lockers to put your bags and there are no locks on the doors. I didn't feel that safe and my belongings definitely weren't safe unless I was with them. It is also pretty unclean, especially the bathrooms. However, the staff is wonderful and helpful and pleasant. I had a really good time staying here even having said all those previous things. I would still recommend it.


Inverness Student Hostel

Inverness, Scotland
57%

To me this hostel was just okay. The staff was pleasant enough but nothing special. Most of the time they were just sitting around the lobby and/or using the internet. Sometimes they seemed put out when I asked for help. The location is pretty good but Inverness is small so it's hard to have a bad location. There are no locks on doors or lockers to keep your belongings so it wasn't that secure. All in all I would say that it wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either.

It is close to a lot of stuff but not any of the main tourist attractions. it\'s not that far but not very close either! The guests didn\'t seem to interact much and the staff was only moderately helpful. Plus the lockout is a pain in the butt! Not bad though.
