Hostel AVA

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Helpful and friendly staff but the hostel is right next to several churches and the bells woke me up all night. Beds extremely uncomfortable and I was eaten alive by mosquitoes.

Hostel Amfora

Pula, Croatia

Spotlessly clean, staff could not have been more helpful or kind. Great location in a nice beach town a bit outside Pula.

Sevilla Hostel One Centro

Seville, Spain

Spent Christmas here and had great time. Met nice people and enjoyed staying there as a port of entry to Sevilla.

Spicythai Backpackers

Chiang Mai, Thailand

A nice place to stay if you're on a gap year or want to be with a super young crowd. Didn't find it was a great place to meet people to travel with.

Sunflower Hotel Hoi An

Hoi An, Vietnam

The pool, though a little overheated, is awesome, and makes for a great atmosphere at this hostel. Location is good, about halfway between the beach and the town, and bicyle rental is cheap, easy and worth it--the town is very flat so biking is a great option, despite the heat. I found the staff to be fairly unhelpful, with a low level of English and a fairly unaccomodating attitude. Had a great stay overall and would definitely recommend.

Mojzo inn

Nha Trang, Vietnam

The masses don't lie--this hostel is awesome and its friendly, warm, accomodating staff is what makes it so. Definitely the best hostel in Nha Trang, hands down. If you do a four island cruise, consider booking outside the hostel as Funky Monkey is fairly gimmicky, though it is $7 so it's hard to complain. Also, be wary of pickpocketers at night; women wait outside hostels after dark to grab guys and steal their wallets! No joke, so many people were robbed while I was there.

Enjoy Da Lat Hostel

Da Lat, Vietnam

In a good location. This hostel is very new and you can tell that they are still working out the kinks...hostel owner did not mention to me any policy about returning late, but was then annoyed that he had to open the shutter for us. Boys' dorms were damp and moldy and bathrooms were little more than closets with taps. The beds are not for claustrophobes. My stay there was overall fine, and I think I would stay there again, but you get what you pay for, which is very little.

Thank you for your comment. For sure I will make male dorm be good and no more damp and moldy.


Very easy to meet people in this hostel, staff are very friendly and helpful and beds are comfortable. Despite what the reviews say, it's not at all hard to find and the location is walking distance from all the major Saigon attractions.

Hotel Xoai

Can Tho, Vietnam

Immaculately clean, easy walking disctance from the town center, lovely staff and great value for money. For the same price as a dorm in many places, you get your own room in a lovely new building with an elevator. Only con--not so easy to meet other travelers because you're in your own room.

Velkommen Backpackers

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

The proprietor is great, she was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. My room didn't have a window, but the bathroom was ensuite and very clean, and the A/C worked well.

HI Siem Reap

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Very nice staff and in a great location.

WE Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand

Very clean and fun atmosphere, easy to meet people, but slightly more expensive than other, equally nice hostels in the area.

Buza House

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Fabulous location, right in the old city without having to climb tons of stairs! Basic but clean, the owners are very nice though there isn't tons of information available about the surrounding area, which is fine if you're independent.

Pension Curin

Hvar, Croatia

Basic but lovely hostel a short walk from the town center. For the same price as beds in a hostel we got our own room which was a nice change, though not ideal for meeting people, if that's what you're looking for.

Funky Donkey Bol

Bol, Croatia

Lovely hostel very close to everything in Bol. Very friendly and helpful staff, good vibe. the, ahem, "theme" of the hostel is a little inappropriate but nothing that would deter a stay there.

Sorry about the "Prison Colony" theme! Its all about the fun and games at Funky Donkey! Glad you enjoyed your stay here

Silver Gate Hostel

Split, Croatia

Silver Gate is a nice hostel; they made an unfortunate mistake with our booking but went way out of their way to compensate us for it, giving us another night for free. Location couldn't be better.


A lovely hostel to stay in, apart from the fire alarm that went off at 4AM! Overall a very good value though.

Rosses Point Guesthouse

Sligo, Ireland

Beautiful, pristine hostel in a lovely location. Definitely worth a visit!
