Corfu Backpackers

Corfu, Greece

The key I was given on arrival didn't work, so they left me with no key and told me to sort it out with the girl I was sharing with- who I hadn't actually met! The staff were very uninterested in actually running the place efficiently, just tried to get you drunk and naked every day. Good facilities as there is a pool, hot tub, bar etc. Laundry was done for yo but was 10 euro per load.

Old Town Hostel

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Great location but small common area so not great for meeting other people.

The Drunken Monkey Hostel

Zadar, Croatia

Great courtyard area with pool, small kitchen, large bar and lounge room. Great place to stay.

Fulir Hostel Zagreb

Zagreb, Croatia

Great location, staff were very friendly and helpful. Good common room and kitchen which is ideal for meeting other people.

Hostel Park

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Good location but no atmosphere.

Ostello S. Fosca

Venice, Italy

Good location, close to the action but in a quiet side street so no noise and no tourists on your door step. Large kitchen and large courtyard.


Good location not far from the beach. A lot of 18- 20's staying when I did so felt a bit old.

B&B Bella Bari

Bari, Italy

Lovely hostel right in the Old town. The owners were very welcoming, and the neighbours were very friendly. Only stayed 1 night but wish it was longer.

Hostel Brikette

Positano, Italy

The cheap room was very noisy, and didn't have a lock on the door, but apart from that was pretty good.


Huge courtyard area with a bar, great for meeting other travelers. Clean and comfortable rooms. There is a laundry and you can hang your clothes in the courtyard. The staff have great recommendations for pizza places!

Ostello San Frediano

Lucca, Italy

Set in an old monestry next to a church. There are many living rooms throughout and a lovely courtyard. There was actually a church choir practicing in the lounge room one night! Good location, in the old town. Stayed in a dorm, without ensuite, but the bathroom was only a few doors away and just for our room- needed a key to access. Probably best for groups as was hard to meet other people that weren't in my room.

dear Louise, thank you for the nice review and these good words that pay off for our working. You are always welcome in Lucca, and we wish you all the best. Best regards, The staff


Poor location- way out in the suburbs, although close to a metro station. Bathrooms were not very private. Hostel was very noisy at night, can here everyone unlocking their doors. Very hot at night and bitten by mosquito's all night. Internet had a poor access.

The Tent Village

Interlaken, Switzerland

Very cool atmosphere. Hot tub and pool in a big outdoors area overlooking the alps! Everyone was very friendly. Beds were narrow but comfortable. Didn't spend much time in the tent, just sleeping. Lockers available for valuables. Large supermarket across the road for cheap dinners, BBQ available to use.

Chamonix Lodge

Chamonix, France

A little hard to find as I arrived at 10pm! Rooms were small but clean. Very modern inside due to a recent refurbishment. Huge kitchen. Nice outdoors area with spa and sauna.

Torquay Backpackers Hostel

Torquay, England

Great location. The staff were friendly. Large kitchen.

St. Rita Hotel

Plymouth, England

This is just a hotel with a few dorm rooms- no atmosphere at all and no common area. The main door is locked at night and you need a code but the staff did not tell me the code, so was locked out till someone else came!

Driftwood Surf Lodge

Newquay, England

The staff were lovely and organised surf lessons for me. It's a small hostel but a very friendly vibe!

Kendal Hostel

Lake District, England

The staff were very friendly and had great suggestions for hikes. Large lounge room, dining room and kitchen. There is a cheap cinema just next door.
