Cliff Hotel

Amman, Jordan
83%

A cheap and comfortable stay in the center of town. The staff were really helpful in working out how to get around and the common area was a nice place to meet people. Showers, toilets and wi-fi worked well. Tours offered, but never pushed, were reasonably priced. My dorm room had a bit of a funky smell to it and I wish that the toilet paper was more dutifully replenished but otherwise I would totally stay here again.

Nice place for some diving. The instructors were fantastic as were all of the other staff. The dorms are new and are very clean and comfortable. The location is quite far away from any stores or food outlets so guests are at the mercy of the over-priced hostel restaurant. All in all I'll stay here again.

The Green Backpackers

Nice place to stay for some hiking. The staff are very helpful in planning and suggesting hiking trails. Very clean and very comfortable. One word of warning for guests planning to stay in Mitzpe Ramon: If you arrive late Thursday, there is very little transport out of town until Sunday.

Samira Guest House

Nazareth, Israel
94%

This hostel was perfect in ALMOST every way. The staff were amazingly helpful, beds were extremely comfortable, everything was immaculately clean and the location was excellent. One criticism I do have is, the price of the dorm bed was higher than I had reserved it for on this site (5 shekels more per night). When I questioned this I found that it was because the conversation rate that the hostel used was particularly high. If I book a hostel bed in shekel, I expect to pay that price in shekel.

Citadel Youth Hostel

Jerusalem, Israel
77%

Excellent location and extremely helpful staff. I booked a 13 bed "tent" but I was quite disappointed to find that it was literally a mattress and blanket on the roof with no protection from the weather. I also found their policies of charging per day for lockers a little harsh and steeply priced. The hostel was clean but some toilets and toilets/shower doors were in need of repair. In the end I didn't mind sleeping on the roof but I'd only stay here again if I needed a cheap(-ish) bed.

Bethlehem Youth Hostel

Bethlehem, Israel

Excellent location, friendly staff and comfortable beds. The hostel is attached to a school so there are lots kids and volunteer teachers around. The hostel was overbooked when I arrived so I was put in a children's classroom (with a real bed) but I didn't mind at all. Would stay here again.

Hostel Overstay TLV

Tel Aviv, Israel
80%

A nice enough hostel. As its a new hostel, its a little disorganized. I booked and paid for a 6 bed dorm and was put in a 8 bed dorm. Its located a walkable distance from the beach, Old Jaffa and the city centre but it is a bit of a hike. There were plenty of showers and toilets. Very good Wi-fi and the staff were extremely helpful.

Hostal Martin

Madrid, Spain

It's hard to find fault with this hotel. Perfect quiet location. On foot: 2 mins to subway, 5 mins to train station, 7 mins to Museo del Prado, 10 mins to Puerta de Sol and 15 mins to Palacio Real. Supermarkets, restaurants, Flamenco shows and banks all in the immediate area. Rooms are modern, comfortable and cleaned everyday. Staff were polite, friendly and helpful at all times. The only thing I didn't like was being required to give our room key to the front desk every time we went out.

Memnon Hotel

Aswan, Egypt
94%

Nice well furnished rooms. Staff was always helpful and polite. The tours to Abu Simbel were suprisingly well priced. Spectacular views of the river Nile and Tombs of the Nobles. Wi-fi only in the lobby. As others have mentioned the rooftop is a wasted opportunity, the pool has no water and guests need to request the key to go up there. While I'm sure the hassle and cost of maintaining the area isn't worth it, I would've spent a lot more time there with a pool. Recommended.

Oasis Hotel Luxor

Luxor, Egypt

Great place. Clean spacious rooms. Walking distance to the train station and main strip. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel offers tours of the area but didn't push them too hard (which was a relief). Excellent rooftop to enjoy sunsets and other travellers with complimentary tea. Definitely would stay here again.

Cairo Stars Hostel

Cairo, Egypt

The warmest hospitality I've ever experienced. Ramadan was amazing to enjoy with these guys. I couldn't have wanted more from the staff who would have done everything possible for me. By Egyptian standards, with lots of sand everywhere, the hotel is very clean. The owner is doing an excellent job brightening up the walls with fresh colors. Their sister hotel is right around the corner and essentially guests get the service of two complete hotels. I've stopped here twice and will stop here again.

Lisetonga Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Great place to stay for hitting up the beach. The hostel is very clean, spacious with great facilities. It's about a 5 minute walk to Copacabana beach, shops, bars and restaurants. The police have officers posted directly in front of the hostel (and at the bottom of the hill) so security is no problem. The staff were extremely helpful and the breakfast was exceptionally good.

Other Side Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
71%

I'd have no hesitation staying here again. In all honesty, the sleeping quarters are cramped, there aren't enough facilities (one toilet/ shower for the whole hostel), it's fairly dirty and it's location lacks charm (unless it's Carnival and then it would be ground zero). On the otherhand, the staff are a blast to hang with, complaints are taken seriously and acted upon, I felt safe, but above all, you will get to see the real Rio away from the beaches and trendy bars. Try the Other Side its fun

Hostel Manga Rosa

Foz do Iguacu, Brazil

A fantastic place to stay. The owners take great pride in their hostel and their rating on hostelworld is very important to them. The owners went to extreme lengths to ensure everyone had a comfortable and enjoyable time. Joe even cooked dinnner for his guests! I loved the hammocks, video games, hot showers, dinner, fast wifi and watching the soccer on the projector screen. The location is slightly out of the way but everything else was first class. Thanks for everything Joe and Giselli!

An amazing bed and breakfast. Very nice rooms. Everything was very clean. Hot showers with soap, shampoo and towels provided. A short walk to the principle plaza. Wifi reception was generally poor. The staff were exceptionally helpful when they could be found on the premises.

Good location, average cleanliness and decent value for money. I stayed on two occasions, my first shower was freezing cold, the second was hot. The staff locked up the showers when everyone was preparing for their 3 day salt flats tour with no shower, which I thought was quite a stingy thing to do. Also the staff in general, particularly the woman, were very unfriendly and quite demanding with whatever rules they made up on the spot. I noticed a few guests having clashes with the staff.


Wild Rover Backpackers

La Paz, Bolivia
80%

Good location and very clean with all the services one could expect from a hostel. Staff were very helpful. Personally, it wasn't my scene and I felt that considering all the rules the hostel imposes upon it's guests, it's reputation of a party hostel is undeserved. I'd recommend this hostel to people in their early to mid twenties who want to travel all the way to Bolivia to drink at a faux Irish bar in the hostel.

Very average hostel. There was nothing particularly bad about it but nothing exceptional stood out either. Short walk to the main strip. Reasonably priced tours to the islands. Two things that do need to be addressed is the showers/ toilet opposite the main office/ entrance with semi-transparent walls offer zero privacy. The other is the roof, one guest was having a meltdown because the roof to her room was a plastic sheet. Someone was definitely asleep at the wheel making those decisions.

For what they charge Mirador Del Inka is great value. I stayed in a private room with shared bathroom and it was comfortable. The rooms with private bathroom looked much nicer. Only about a 10 minute walk to the plaza with lots of cheap restaurants offering menus in the area. It's a three tier hostel with great views of the city especially from the top. It's a bit of an uphill climb to the hostel which will surely kick you in the altitude sickness but good practice for your trek.


Amazing Hostel Arequipa

Arequipa, Peru
91%

Nice standard hostel with the usual bells and whistles. Only about a 10 minute walk to the main plaza and other sights. The staff were friendly and helpful. The banana pancake breakfast was a very pleasant change. The tours sold at the hostel were reasonably priced. Personally I was unhappy with my tour but I don't fault the hostel for this. Generally regardless of where you book a tour, ultimately you will be put on the same bus as everyone else so the only real factor is price.


Ica Wasi Hospedaje

Ica, Peru

Hostel Ica Wasi is a great place to stay. The brothers running the place are very passionate about their business. It's a modern building with modern facilities and very clean. It's located in a safe neighborhood with a 5 minute walk to the bus stations and a 10 minute walk to the main plaza.


Enjoy Hostels

Lima, Peru
89%

Nice hostel with good facilities. Located in the centre of Miraflores but just off the main road for quieter sleeping. The staff were friendly and helpful. Generally everything was clean except for the bathrooms which need a lot more attention and judging by the build up of mould, they have been neglected for quite a while. Unfortunately the hostel seems understaffed in the mornings, often it took 30 minutes to get breakfast or someone's attention. On the whole, I'd recommend Enjoy Hostels.


91%

Great hostel, the family running it are extremely nice and easy-going. Very clean and very good location. The only thing I would have really wanted for was internet access. Having to go to the internet cafe to make onward plans or keep in touch with people back home makes this hostel a little more expensive than it seems. Otherwise, everything was fantastic.


Golondrinas Hostel

Iquitos, Peru
89%

Nice hostel with a well maintained pool. The staff speak some english and were very helpful with information in the area. Its only a 10 minute walk from the town center and in a safe area. Their Jungle Tour company seemed quite expensive compared to other companies in the area but I completely recommend the hostel.


86%

Impressive colonial style building with good facilities. Its right across the road from a nice park to chill out in and has a supermarket nearby. Generally clean for a hostel of this size. The owner clearly takes pride in the running of the hostel. Quite noisy in the mornings due to the constant honking of traffic. If you are in one of the dorms off the main the lobby, the evenings can also be noisy due to the music of the bar area. All-in-all I recommend staying here.


Hostel Utopia

Amsterdam, Netherlands

I enjoyed my stay here. The girls operating from the coffee shop downstairs were helpful and welcoming. The hostel is 5 minutes walk from Amsterdam Central on a major street so it was easy to find. The hostel has a good standard of cleanliness and the beds were comfortable. Would stay again.
