Hostel Nokturno

Zagreb, Croatia
77%

Amazing location in the middle of Zagreb. Helpful staff and a decent hostel. However showers were luke-warm/cold most of the time and 6-bed dorm was very cramped when it was full. Nice enough place, but nothing special for the price.

Labyrinth Hostel Vienna

Vienna, Austria
80%

The cheapest place in Vienna, not amazing, but good value for this city. Great location, but hostel is like beds in a garage! Ask for Room D, the actual dorm room. Hot showers, free tea/coffee, staff were nice. It's really basic, but just be prepared for a cheap, average bed and you'll be OK.

Mandarin Hostel Budapest

Budapest, Hungary

Cheap and cheerful, good showers, comfy beds, nice common room. Staff were a bit grumpy, but helpful enough. Only big problem was the location, really bad part of town, but close to subway station! Also, make sure you check the small print about taxes/fees as we had to pay extra for our beds compared to the Hostelworld price!

HI Siem Reap

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Great place on a budget. Free tuk-tuk pick up from bus station, friendliest staff I've met anywhere in SE Asia and a nice, clean, well-run hostel with good food andfree tea/coffee during the day. Really close to town, but quiet for sleeping. Only downside is no free breakfast.


Sunflower Hotel Hoi An

Hoi An, Vietnam
94%

Great place, good location between town and beach and they have regular free shuttles into Old Town. Big, clean, comfortable rooms , lots of choice for breakfast. Staff amazing, will help with anything you need, even ordering pizza to your room! Good touches like free bananas/tea in room and cold towels on arrival + pick up from bus station too. Not a bad word to say!


Backpacking Club Hostel

Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
60%

We were able to get a comfy bed in a double room for $14 - big discount. The breakfast of baquette and eggs is quite nice and free. And it is obviously a great location. The low rating comes from staff, who seemed less than pleased to be there. Be careful with the laundry service as staff laziness led to our clothes disappearing. I would recommend checking out, paying and getting your passport back, while the owner is there, maybe the night before you leave.


Downtown Siem Reap Hostel

Siem Reap, Cambodia

pGood place, owner is nice and it is only a few minutes walk to downtown, but very quiet for sleeping. You get what you pay for, but for only $4 a person for a double room, it is good value!


Udee Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand
100%

Probably the best hostel of the hundreds I've stayed in over the years! More like a boutique hotel, great staff, spotlessly clean, lots of facilities and every detail has been covered. Even things like free water for your private room and printed cards to show taxi drivers for all major things in Bangkok. A class act - highly recommended.


Sinad Guesthouse

Bangkok, Thailand

Purely a cheap bed, our room was dirty, falling apart and way too hot even with the fan on full. Showers were terrible, but it did have good wifi and good location with nice staff. You definitely get what you pay for, cheap and cheerful.

Never quite made it here in the end, but have only heard great things from other travellers and the staff we're very helpful when I called to cancel.

Good location, nice enough place with big rooms. Staff were unhelpful and pretty rude for the most part though. Nice enough place, but there are few choices in Zhangjiajie and the lack of competition definitely shows with how average this place is, yet it is still the best in town.

Enjoyed our stay here, plenty of facilities, good restaurant and tour desk with nice staff all around. Nice garden. Only thing I'll say is that the place seems to have gone downhill a bit in the last year or so since the original owners sold it.

Still a good hostel, lots of facilities and friendly staff but it seems to have gone downhill since the original owners sold it in December 2010.
