Shoestrings Airport Lodge, Johannesburg, South Africa
8.6
9th Nov 2015

Shoestrings is very close to the airport. It's also on the Guatrain bus line. You can get there from Rhodesfield station and the bus stop is 26 or 1 (the beginning and end of the route). They have free pick up from the TO Tambo airport as well. Their kitchen area is quite big as are areas to just sit and read and chill. It's perfect for a place to stay by the airport.

Victoria Falls Backpackers, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

1st Nov 2015

Victoria Falls Backpackers is amazing! It's cozy and quiet (except the toads at night). The property is like a slice of heaven! My cottage was spacious, nice size bathroom, shower with great water pressure, and very cool temperature wise. I was able to book excursions thru the hostel and it was easy. My bed was super comfy and every night I had a good night's sleep. They also had a nice café area where I could order all my meals. ZOMG the food there is delicious! This is the ONLY place to stay.

Pretoria Backpackers, Pretoria, South Africa

30th Oct 2015

Pretoria Backpackers is an awesome place to stay. It's in a quiet, clean area of Pretoria. It's easy to get to via the Guatrain Hatfield station. Just take the Guatrain there and then catch the bus just outside it. Take it to Lofstas Versfeldpark. The hostel is just a block away from the stadium. The rooms are spacious and amazing! I had a bath tub in my chalet. A nice deep bathtub perfect for a bubble bath! There are two very big and lovable dogs on the property. It's a safe place to be.

A bit confusing to get to if you don't know the city. But, it is a quick easy taxi ride to and from Waverly station. Very quiet area. Close to shoppes, TESCO, and wonderful eateries. Apartment block 1 has NO lift!! Very clean. Awesome staff. Comfortable beds.

Extremely convenient! Best location in London. Bed is overly comfy: did not want to get out of it. Spacious en suite bathroom. Perfect water pressure and plenty of hot water. Not enough wall plugs for everyone in room. Very friendly staff.

IS@K Guest House, Seoul, South Korea

14th Jun 2014

I had a very good stay at IS@K. The owner was on site and showed me around the facility. It was a very welcoming atmosphere. Everyone was super friendly. It's not too far from a tube stop and busses run up and down the street regularly. It's close to a plethora of places to eat. There are only two toilets but they were clean and always available when needed. The water pressure in the showers totally aces and plenty of hot water.

Bangrang Hostel, Seoul, South Korea

17th Aug 2013

Bangrang Hotel is conveniently located right by a subway stop. It is also very close to Seoul Central station. If you are fit; you can walk! Or it's a very cheap taxi ride away. The office is up the alley way but there may or may not be a sign (there was a sign the day I checked in; but gone the next). The office staff is friendly and VERY helpful ( I had a friend who needed a booking last minute and they accommodated him.) Awesome kitchen facilities. Small, Spartan room. Very very clean!

15th Aug 2013

Very convenient location. It's close to the tube and busses. Walking distance to the Thames. Very good value for the money. Hotel and area is quiet. St. Paul's bells ring on the hour. Quite soothing. Hotel is obsessively clean: showers and toilets - always saw someone cleaning. There is NO LIFT and many many stairs to walk up. No AC in rooms. Summers in the room are a bit hot. No screens on window either. Pay a nominal fee for Wi-Fi and internet. Only one outlet in 6 person dorm.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. They gave me a really good map of the area and pointed out all the groovy things to see. They even helped me get to the beach for Christmas Day! The room's air conditioner worked nicely. The shower water always hot! The bed was comfy and the duvet was very nice.

This hostel is just awesome. The staff are friendly and helpful. The location is aces. Close to busses and tram. Easy to get to. The beds were comfortable. The shower hot. Breakfast was perfection - all you can eat pancakes AND bagels. There is a computer room in the basement and a laundrette. The room was spacious, all four of us had plenty of room to spread out. Totally loved having multiple plugs - especially the private one in my bed.

It's a bit of a walk from the tube stop, but a bus stops in front of the hostel. The staff is very helpful as I arrived early. They let me store my gear and take a quick shower before rushing out. On return I found they had assigned my bed to someone else! The desk clerk quickly sorted it out for me. Very efficient. Very kind. Room was small but comfy. Beds are ace!! Super clean rooms. Toilets in basement better than on 2nd floor. Showers were the best!!! Very quiet and safe location.

1st Dec 2009

I booked a car to the hotel. The driver was quite friendly and courteous. The hotel was easy to find and within walking distance of anything you could need. It is located in the city center - so it\'s quite a hustle and bustle location. The staff is totally friendly and very helpful. The room did get a little chilly at night; but I was provided with a blanket and a duvet and was quite snug and comfy. The ensuite is small and jumbled. Common bathroom is spacious. Plenty hot water.

Perfect location. Near Forum. Can walk into downtown Copenhagen. Comfortable beds. The rooms are small, but you don't spend much time in them. Free internet. Nice, spacious common area. Only downide - not staffed 24/7. The doors are locked at night and if your key card gets deactivated you are stuck outside. You have to call the sister hotel (which is only a few blocks away), go there, and they reactivate your key card.

This is the best accommodation by far. The staff are very friendly and helpful when checking in. They are nuts about cleaning the rooms! The lady who cleaned by floor was amazing. Totally cleaned from top to bottom. The bathrooms were spotless. Great showers. Spacious kitchen. Comfortable rooms, well worth the money. Close to tube stop. Excellent food place near by.

I stayed at QMUL for a total of 12 nights July 2008. It is an awesome place to stay. It\'s about a block and a half from the Mile End tube station (Central, District, and Hammersmith lines). The rooms and bath rooms are ultra clean. QMUL is obsessed with cleaning!! The cleaning staff go thru each dorm like Mr. Clean on to much coffee! I stayed at Maynard and Beaumont Court, both are in the Westfield Student Village. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable, and the water pressure in the showers is phenomenal! My room at Beaumont has a small fridge! The check in desk is manned 24 hours a day, as is the entrance to the university. If you know tons of people in London, have a set plans, or know your way around the city blindfold - this is the place for you. If you are new to London, the tube scares you, you aren\'t adventurous or like new places; find another place to stay. Mile End is way East London (not as far as the wilds of zone 3 LOL) zone 2. It takes 27 minutes on the District line to get to Victoria. It takes almost 25 to get to Holborn (switch here for Leicester Square) on the Central Line and its ALWAYS crowded. If you want to be in the \"thick\" of London with wild parties and crowds this is not the place for you. QMUL is PERFECT if you know your way around town, like peace and quiet, obsessed with cleanliness, and want something inexpensive but worth the money! There is an internet cafe about 5 businesses down and a great chicken and chips take away 4 doors down. There is a grocery store at the end of the block. It\'s easy access to busses 25 and 205: both will get you where you need to go. There is also a bus stop just around the corner that services other stops. QMUL was PERFECT for my trip and will book here until my mate buys a flat/house in Essex.
