Good hostel in a nice area with great food all around. The main tourist sites are a 10-15 minute walk or a 30-40 rupee cab ride away. Cab drivers have no idea where this place is though so get yourself familiar with a map first. Water pressure isn't great and staff turns off the water heaters without warning so watch out for that. Otherwise a pretty good place. I stayed there twice during my trip and would again.


Ram Bhawan Residency

Varanasi, India
97%

Very unique place! You should stay here if you're going to Varanasi. Friendly people, really cool rooms with authentic architectural details. The bathroom(s) are a little strange, especially the one on the first floor. If you want a more private shower, go to the second floor! They have full-house battery backups so during power outages you still have lights and fans. The included homemade daily lunch is really good! You might not recognize the food but you will be surprised how good it is!


Zostel Jodhpur

Jodhpur, India

Very cool, laid back place. Big lockers in the rooms. AIR CONDITIONING that works! The bathroom situation is a little disappointing but totally workable. Never had a problem. Good water pressure and hot water that actually works. Staff was friendly and easygoing. Great common area to hang out and meet people. Restaurant downstairs is decent. Location is not the best. If you haggle hard, 60-80 rupees for a tuktuk to the center or back. They'll ask for 200. But it's nice and quiet at night.

Smyle Inn

New Delhi, India

I had a single room on the 4th floor (no lift, but I don't care) and I found it to be pretty good. The place was very clean and there was good water pressure even on the 4th floor. You have to call the front desk to ask them to turn on your hot water, which is kind of annoying. There's a young guy working there who is extremely friendly and helpful, but one of the managers is a loudmouth jackass. He shouts loudly at all hours day/night and he is quite rude. Get rid of him and it would be better.


Vinayak Guesthouse

Jaipur, India

Good place! Fairly convenient location. Not in the center but not far. Quiet area with conveniences nearby. My room was much larger than I needed. Bathroom was average for India, with a squat toilet and a shower with a little bit of hot water. There are some kids who work there who make a lot of noise in the morning and at night. The rooftop restaurant is a nice place to sit and hang ot but the food was pretty disappointing. Owner is a nice guy but needs to stop pressuring to eat his food.


Kolpinghaus Salzburg

It's definitely a bit of a walk from the center, but you can make it a pleasant walk along the Salzach river, which the Hostel is very close to. This also makes it very simple to find your way to and from the city. More of a hotel with dorm rooms than a hostel, as others have said, but it's clean and secure and cheap.

Very nice place, and more of a social atmosphere than some other people are saying in the reviews. The problem with this place is that all the extras are ridiculously overpriced. Foosball and Pool are the most expensive I have ever seen, and a beer that costs 2 euros on the street costs 3 euros from the cooler in the lobby. That's fairly disappointing ,but these are relatively minor complaints.

Towels are free at this location even though it says they charge. Maybe I just got lucky. The lockers do not require you to bring your own lock; they work with your room RFID card key. The lockers are plenty big for a carry-on size bag and a bunch more stuff. The staff is really excellent. Great location. Very clean. Only improvements would be wifi in the rooms and better lighting in the bathroom (in my dorm there was only a 40-watt halogen spotlight in the ceiling). Good place.

You might want to call ahead to see if they have any hot water during the time you'll be staying there. Otherwise a good place.

Keleti Hostel

Budapest, Hungary

Great place to stay... I gave the location a higher rating than I might have otherwise because this place is RIGHT next to the train station (Keleti). But all the tourist spots are quite a hike away. It's not something that bothers me though. Would stay here again.

Location can be a plus if you want to get drunk and be crazy, which I guess is the point of Temple Bar. If you want to get some sleep, look elsewhere.

I had a FANTASTIC time here! The pub downstairs was SO much fun, mostly because the awesome staff .This review is over 2 years late so I'm not sure who is still there but damn those guys were a riot. They were the highlight of my time in Brighton!

Great pub on the first floor, good staff, and free lockers. The bathrooms and rooms were cleaned daily but not very well. The huge dorm I stayed in had barely any light and it was really kind of bizarre. The location is fantastic though. Just be careful on the stairs!
