The private rooms are excellent. All the staff are very helpful and friendly and the location is just unbeatable. It's not a 'party hostel' but it's sociable enough and of course you can go and hang out with the kids on Khao San Road if you really feel the need! Definitely recommend this place.

Seems like this is pretty much the only place to be in Mandalay. Highly recommended. I had a very nice private room.

Very good hostel. Quiet and spacious. My private room was really nice and I appreciated the powerful aircon!

Excellent all round. Fairly quiet but that's the norm for Singapore and it suits me. Couldn't find any faults with this hostel at all.

Definitely a party hostel - ideal if you're 18-30 and looking to party in Brisbane. Best avoided otherwise, I fear!

Very friendly hostel in a useful location. The guests & staff are mostly young & beautiful people but it's still OK for the slightly less young & beautiful like me!

This hostel is unbeatable for location (Pike and 1st) and it has a good party vibe while remaining civilised for quieter/older travellers.

AAE 11th Avenue Hostel, Denver, USA

30th Oct 2014

Can't fault the staff or the facilities, and the location is great. It does seem to attract a lot of stoners / hobos and certainly it's not a party hostel - it's a hotel with some dorm rooms. But for budget accommodation in Denver it's pretty hard to beat. NB they need to adjust their firewall, it blocked me from researching my trip to the Coors brewery because it doesn't allow alcohol-related sites!

Very good hostel. It's definitely a party hang out for the younger types. The free breakfasts and dinners were surprisingly good, as was everything else, although perhaps a few more utensils and cutlery in the kitchen might have helped. They organise events every night!

This is an excellent hostel. It's in an excellent location and the facilities are first-rate. Also the owner is on site and clearly takes a keen interest in the hostel and its guests. It's modestly sized so it's not one of those bustling party hostels, but you can always meet new people out front on the porch or round the table out back. Recommended :-)

I stayed here three nights and it was very impressed. Definitely not a party hostel but nonetheless it's surely the best way to see SLC on a budget.

Very nice hostel, which is good because there aren't too many others in Austin. I walked from the Amtrak with my backpack because I'm hardcore :-) but I recommend the bus/taxi options to others. Like all HI hostels this place is perhaps a little too square and sedate for some...no alcohol is allowed indoors and it's definitely not a party hostel. But it's a good, clean, secure place to stay. The piano is in tune, very rare for a hostel!

I liked this place. It's fairly new and the staff are all obviously keen to make it work. However I overheard a lot of staff talk about plans for the hostel: there was lots of talk about 'vision' and 'concept' and rather less attention paid to just making things work properly. Check-in and check-out were both rather vague and drawn-out processes. Start with the basics guys! No real complaints though.

I got here straight from LAX. The location is great, right next to the beach. The hostel attracts a lot of surfer dudes, friendly and chilled-out types. I think it's more suited to solo travellers (like me) than big groups.

Very clean, secure and well-equipped. It's definitely not bohemian, perhaps a little corporate in its atmosphere, but there's nothing wrong with that per se.

Definitely recommended. The owners believe in what they do and they extend a friendly welcome. It's a quiet place and best suited to solo travellers (like me) or couples, rather than groups. Location is excellent, just off 'Red Square'.

This place is great value for what you get: and what you get is a tiny but clean and completely secure and well-equipped room to yourself, right in the middle of Kowloon. If you want luxury then you're gonna have to pay for it elsewhere - but if you just want somewhere to crash then this is great. It's not really a hostel, it's a micro-hotel.

Excellent hostel. The location is great - within walking distance of the main bus station, even with the backpack - and the barbecue was fantastic and great value, with great wine thrown in. Very helpful staff too. Recommended highly.

Very nice hostel, lots of character. The location isn't 100% ideal but it's only a short walk to the subway which will quickly take you just about anywhere. Very nice kitchen and terrace...not a huge party hostel, you'll need to go out if you want to hit the bar, but that's not a complaint.

This is a good hostel with good facilities and the staff were friendly and helpful to me. My only complaint was that the whole place seemed to be freezing cold - dorms and common areas alike. (I stayed in mid February). The hostel has a few different blocks and maybe I was in the colder one of the two? I realise Cusco isn't warm in February but a little bit of heating would have been nice!

Excellent location for the Centro Historico and public transport. It's a very charming and grand old building with tremendous character. It's fairly quiet, a bit big and empty, not a party hostel, and well suited to slightly older travellers looking to relax rather than young gap-year types looking to party all night. Personally I loved it.

Definitely a party hostel - there are always people in the bar and it's very lively at night, although I didn't have any difficulty getting to sleep. Great location in Miraflores, tons of restaurants around, although you'll need a bus or a taxi to get to the Centro Historico. Very good on the whole but definitely better for young party types than for older travellers (I'm kind of teetering between the two!)

I enjoyed my stay here. I'd say it's more of a pension than a hostel, but that's not a bad thing. Better for solo travellers and families than most hostels. I did have a few bed bugs but nothing too bad. Nice and secure and an excellent location in one of South America's prettiest tows. Also the proprietess was very understanding when I rolled in at about 1.30am after my bus was delayed!

Very friendly and helpful staff, good location, nice bar. The pool table could be slightly flatter though! Also I stayed in one of two 4-bed dorms downstairs which really comprised one big 8-bed dorm because the partition was very thin and not at all soundproof. On the whole though it's a good secure hostel and great value, especially when the drinks are 2 for 1, which they seem to be most of the time!

Excellent location - right in the middle of town. Only complaint is that we were kicked out of our room at 10.30 which is just a little bit too early for an all-night party city like Amsterdam! Otherwise fine.
