13th Mar 2016

Great looking hostel in an old converted building! If you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs but the creaky boards didn't bother us. Nice simply breakfast offered with good strong coffee. Spacious room with aircon was nice. Clean shared bathrooms with good showers. Staff was nice especially the man there during the day. Helpful with food recommendations and how to get around/what to see. All their other properties looked interesting too and would stay here or try another property next time!

Only an overnight stay but it was a great stay! The lady at check-in was so lovely and helpful getting us great food recommendations and sorting our onward travel! She offered free coffee/tea in the morning and toast which is really appreciated when you're on the move to the next destination! Our room was clean and cool and the separate shower was hot and refreshing.Everything you need in a hostel! Would love to stay again here!

Ok hostel for a couple of nights, room was a good size with hot shower. Our window opened into the next door neighbor's outdoor kitchen which was a bit unfortunate for noise levels. Decent hostel for small Vang Vieng.

17th Feb 2016

Quiet hostel near lots of good cafes and restaurants. Room was average with ensuite but the ensuite was the size of a small closet with walls that didn't hit the ceiling. Make sure you're comfortable with your roommate if you catch my drift!!! Nice rooftop patio with cold beers in the fridge downstairs. Helpful enough staff too. The price is cheap and worth it!

May, the reception, is awesome. Very helpful, flexible and kind. Nice included breakfast with filtered coffee. Longboat trip to tourist part of city but this neighborhood is great for food and it's quiet at night. Great aircon rooms, clean and bright. Would stay here every time we come to Bangkok.

6th Feb 2016

I was very excited for this guesthouse but it proved a disappointment. The one-hour included massage was nothing more than a 'leg rub' of 45 minutes, the free breakfast was in fact free but often took 45-60 minutes or never arrived at all which happened twice. We also received cold bread with old brown apple as our takeaway breakfast on our way to catch an early morning bus. Staff were often apathetic and overwhelmed. Some were friendly but couldn't answer our travel questions. It was average.

Hostel has a great location near central market and only a few moments walk to restaurants/bars. We had a great Tuk Tuk driver recommended by the hotel that took us on a wonderful day trip. We did have an issue with our room but the staff did everything they could in their power to fix it in a timely fashion and overall we had a fairly comfortable stay. Staff was attentive and helpful. Cheap as chips for a decent room.

30th Jan 2016

A nice relaxed setting along the river about 2 km away from Otres 1, nice walk to the beach and village. Mama Clare gave us great food and drink recommendations (Try Otres City for sure)! We opted for the cheaper option for rooms and got a treehouse without a door: it did however have a lockbox for valuables and an amazing view. Clare assured us not to worry but just a head's up for those that do worry! Our stuff was safe while we were away. Great shower and comfy hammocks too!

The room was clean and the aircon was a plus in this hot city.The lock on the door was terrible and no lockbox in the room which would have offered better security. Pretty average guesthouse with mostly helpful and kind staff. Had a decent but expensive breakfast offered at the guesthouse. The offer all the amenities you need but not the cheapest in the city.

Great location off the main road with a short walk to the beach and restaurants. Clean, air-conditioned rooms with cable and small balcony in our room. Included brekkie with the biggest cup of coffee i've seen in ages! But the real standout at this hostel are the ladies at the front desk! Awesome girls that helped with everything we needed and were always smiling and just heaps of fun! Would love to stay again just because of them! Thanks

One of the best hostels we've stayed on. Sam and the rest of the staff were so helpful, friendly and ultimately amazing. Sam helped get us sorted with some great tours and well as great recommendations for onward travel. She even organized breakfast for us in between a overnight train/bus when we had limited amounts of time! The hostel was great anyways with clean spacious rooms and a nice included breakfast. I wish all hostels were more like this one. Would stay again in a heartbeat! Thanks Sam

In an interesting neighborhood near Hitachi Tower, pretty good location for us two who wanted to eat authentic food. That was the best part. Cleanliness was average with not even close to enough showers/toilets for a hotel that size. Free coffee/tee in morning before 11. Wasn't a great hotel for foreigners, no atmosphere or good advice for travelers. Geared toward Japanese business men so maybe not ideal for couples or women.

Good location in village with great wifi connection. Spacious rooms with fans and aircon (for an additional price). We had a miscommunication when checking in and apparently we had to switch rooms the next day. But unfortunately this wasn't communicated to us. The manager moved all our stuff for us as we were out diving all day and although everything was there, it was an awkward situation to come back to. We were also moved to the room without aircon so hence the price difference. Nice enough.

Small room but ensuite and with aircon and also lock box for valuables. Our bathroom was dirty with leftover cotton swabs on floor. Wifi connection was good and free breakfast a plus. They said they had coffee/tea 24 hours but they won't let you have any if you are an early riser before breakfast starts so not really 24 hours is it? Staff were helpful and nice but this is a party backpacker. Don't expect the party to end at 11 for 'quiet hours'. It doesn't.

Good hostel very near city and beach. Rooms had air conditioning which was great during the night! Staff at front desk were helpful and great! Other staff could be rather aloof or too busy socializing to help. Hostel is partying everyone night so great for those looking for a party and rooms are private enough if you need a night to yourself. Noise wasn't an issue in our private room.

Overall, an unpleasant stay. Staff could be helpful only what the wanted to be. Not much of an atmosphere with very tiny outside patio. Extremely hot in the night: bring insect repellant if you want a breeze from leaving the window open. Not the great hostel if used to be a few years ago by any means. Would not return.

Location is pretty far from the city, 45-60 walk or public transportation. Hostel seems to be a bit run down, our "double bed" was just a bit larger than a twin and made for an uncomfortable night of sleep. They try to cram too many people into the hostel, and it can be quite hot. Bar downstairs is mainly just staff and their friends, although the staff are pretty nice/helpful for the most part.

Jazz Hostel & Apartments, Bled, Slovenia

23rd Jul 2012

An excellent stay here! Janez was a great host with wonderful recommendations and even a few discounts on restaurants. He always checked in with us asking if "we need something..." He and his family kept a very clean hostel with great kitchen and grill area. Not a big common area but we met some great people here just the same. Quiet for the most part until the old Slovenian regulars turn up at the bar in the parking lot in the morning rather early. Still had a great time here!

Youth Hostel Piran, Piran, Slovenia

20th Jul 2012

Fine hostel in the old city center, less than 5 min walk to everything. Our room with clean and comfortable and since we got the top floor, we had a patio as well. Only 1 toilet and shower for 5 different rooms (or about 10-12 people). Was a bit of a problem in the morning. Some staff could be more helpful, as we said we'd return at 2 to check in and no one was there! Only accepts cash.

19th Jul 2012

3 different properties in Piran, maybe we just got the worst property. Staff didn't offer map, suggestions, wifi codes or tell us anything about supposed roof-top terraces. We got a cave-like room that was hot, unclean, and directly under the staircase (imagine Harry Potter's room under the stairs). We could hear EVERYTHING above us. Glad we only stayed here one night as we'd never come back.

Good location, but rather cold B&B. Staff could have been more welcoming and offer recommendations. Had to ask for towels. Bathroom and room average, not dirty but not welcoming either. No fan in room. Wouldn't stay here again.

My second stay at Hostel of the Sun after a 5 year hiatus. It's gotten bigger but hasn't lost much of it's previous charm. Good, helpful staff. Clean, air-conditiond rooms with decent bathroom facilities. Common room was a bit small for all of the people staying here. Good location near all the great pizzeria's and ferries for day trips. Would stay again if in Naples.

13th Jul 2012

Location was a bit far away for walking the city, although public transportation is available. Our host was very nice giving us recommendations, cooking for us, and letting us cook for ourselves. This B&B had 2 cats which we weren't aware of in booking (we are both allergic). It made for a rather bad smell in the common area and made it a bit dirty. Bathrooms and rooms were clean with fans and with good working internet as well.

Ok location if you want to be near train station, 15-20 minute to historic center. Old building which was cool at night with fan, could use more toilets/showers (only 2 for 1 floor of hotel). Staff was helpful enough. Breakfast was terrible with prepackaged items and a broken coffee machine. DOES NOT HAVE A SWIMMING POOL. I don't know why it's on the website.

Nice helpful and friendly staff with great food recommendations. Room was very small with a shower which was nice although only 2 bathrooms in hall for the entire hotel. Toilet was often dirty as well. Rooms desperately could use fans which would really help out in summer. Lose the little tv, get the rooms a fan! Could be a great hotel/hostel with a little bit of love.

Alessandro and family were wonderful and welcoming. We got off our bus 2 stops early on accident and he came to find us so we didn't get lost. Great view from all rooms with a nice breakfast from Momma! Had an enjoyable stay with this family and would come back again when we have a car to get around Lake Como. Make sure you go to the family butcher shop and try their meat: it's wonderful and they have wine in their shop too!

Chose this hostel because it was near train station: when we got to check-in, they told us our room was 20 minutes by foot! A closer location to center but we'd have preferred nearer to train station ( they have 3 different buildings, 1 of which is air-conditioned). Staff was fine with decent recommendations and good directions to our room. Room was clean. No wifi anywhere, ethernet cables in main hostel. Facilities could be better, expensive to not have coffee, breakfast or internet!

Wombats City Hostel Munich, Munich, Germany

28th Jun 2012

We like Wombats hostels although we preferred the Berlin one quite a bit. Clean, spacious rooms with a bar downstairs. Some rooms quite noisy because you're directly above busy street. Could use more fans in hot summer! One common room that was air-conditioned but never any place to sit! Internet was at best spotty because everyone was using it constantly. Need more wifi available. Staff was helpful and gave good food, beer, and tour recommendations.

Great location if you want to eat good, cheap food in a funky neighborhood! Close to the best currywurst stand and terrific asian restaurants! Great top floor bar with good happy hour. Rooms very clean with lots of space (they don't overcrowd in this big hostel). Breakfast was good although the coffee was awful (3.80 euro was worth it). Our favorite Wombats hostel by far. Would come back again.

Good friendly staff that offer a free breakfast (but make sure to give them a little something in donation for it) with superb coffee! Could use another working toliet as there is only 1 working for 20+ people located strangely in the kitchen. Overall nice place that we'd stay in again.
