I appreciated how clean it was and felt like my dorm was almost a private double room because of the bunk dividers. Good place for value.

I've stayed at Bodega several times over the course of the last few years and have always been really pleased with their accommodations. It's clean, the location is great, the staff is friendly and helpful, and it's a great place to meet other travelers. The guys have always had my back and I'm really pleased to see how the business is developing. I'll definitely stay here again and if you are new to Southeast Asia, Bodega is a great starting point.

I wish there had been at least one toilet that didn't double as the shower on the same floor as our room. Breakfast very basic, but all in all a cute hostel. I felt safe here. Wifi worked well. Big lockers and beds did not creak. No lockout time. Kind of a small space in general, but it works!

Great new place in Ban Tai. Close to some cheap food and massages. The hostel pool is quite nice and also sits right next to the beach. When the tide is in, you can jump right in. Cool staff, very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again and recommend to others.

Nice place. Easy to get to and from. Good Internet. Just a heads up if taking bus 45 from the bus station, the stop you want is under an overpass after about an hour. Almost exclusively Chinese guests but staff spoke excellent English and was very accommodating.

Upgraded my six bed dorm to a three bed for free which was nice. I stayed in the hotel part. Very clean. A little annoying that the cleaning ladies opened my door three times the first morning I was there even though it said they don't clean unless asked. Food was good, staff helpful, common area chill. It is a bit of a walk once on final road - hostel is on the right almost at the end of the road before the bus station and next bridge. I'd stay again.

Flipflop is in a great location. Their local food is some of the cheapest I've seen at a hostel, and it's delicious. Showers are in rooms so there are none to use until check in. Staff is nice but I got incorrect information when trying to do things myself (or else there was a miscommunication). Had no insight when I got the run around from train and bus stations for my trip to Guilin. Electricity only works with a room key so no leaving things to charge. Asked for a good review which I dislike.

This is a great little place. Good food, friendly staff. June went out of his way to help us out and was an informed host. I found it clean and nice to hang out in. It's located close to the burnt part of old town so navigation through there can be tricky, and the street smells like sewage, though you thankfully can't smell it inside. There is an 11pm curfew and a small staff (sometimes not around because cleaning etc.). Be aware that the hostel is wooden, thus noise sensitive. I liked it here!

This hostel is in a nice location a little farther away from the late night noise of the central old town. They do have a 2-6 (7?) am lockout which wasn't really a problem but would have been nice to know before booking. The staff have lots of great advice, they even helped me out of a couple of tight spots. One of the cleanest bathroom facilities I've ever seen in China which I think is saying something. Met some good people here. I'd stay again.

It's a generally decent hostel. I appreciated that they had hot water available for use. Common area a bit dim and smoking everywhere, but I would stay here again if I needed to. Nice terrece area for use if it's not raining. Also the beds are nice and they have good storage areas with locks in the room, although your bed (which you choose) does not necessarily correspond to where your locker is (which they assign).

I have stayed at this hostel a couple of times and always really enjoyed myself. It's easy to meet people and be social. I think this is probably the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed at in Thailand, maybe even Asia. And their beds are incredibly comfortable. I'm sure I'll stay here again.

I really liked this place, it had a nice vibe to it. I stayed in an 8-bed and a 6-bed dorm here, found the 8-bed room incredibly spacious. Comforters were very warm, which was appreciated. There are lockers in the rooms big enough for backpacks (maybe not huge ones though), and safety boxes near reception. Wish there was a kitchen for use (they have a bar/restaurant), but otherwise no complaints! Stayed here twice, because I liked it enough :)

This place is right next to Chow Kit, which is convenient. If you are staying here because it's so cheap, beware that you're probably not really saving any money as you have to pay extra for blankets, toilet paper, adapters, and even use of dvd's in the common room. It's an okay place to sleep but I was glad that they upgraded me to the female dorm and I will probably look for somewhere else if I stay in KL again.

I originally only booked two nights here, but ended up staying 8. Footprints is in a good location, easy walking distance to both the Bugis and Little India MRT stations and lots of good and cheap food nearby. Found the staff very lovely, and really appreciated the breakfasts. I think I probably saw the cleaning man more than any other person at the hostel, seemed like he was always working! If a solo female, might recommend the female dorm.

10th Dec 2013

This hostel is part of the Chunking Mansion conglomerate, which is worth experiencing at least once. I stayed a week in a couple different types of rooms and found it to be clean and secure. Raj, the laundry guy was particularly nice, offering me an alternate shower one day when the dorm shower (shared between like 20 people, so often occupied) was full. Downsides for me would be the state of disrepair in dorm bathroom, no common room, no key to room, and general sketchiness. Wifi excellent.

The dorm room we stayed in didn't have a key to lock, it was also basically the hostel common room. Fortunately our beds were in a loft area so we had some privacy/seclusion. Hostel staff very lovely, lots of people from workaway. At times seemed like there was more staff than guests. They invited everyone out to a bar with local food/drinks and dancing though. It was a very memorable experience and really made our stay in Budapest that more lovely.

Very nice facilities. Largest dorm room I have ever stayed in in my life (most beds anyway - 22) but the other guests were exceedingly considerate. I didn't have any problems sleeping and was one of the latest people up at midnight. Very clean. Kitchen area for cooking and washing is a bit small, but there are several fridges and lots of space for eating/chilling. My only complaint is that it doesn't have much personality. Common area is more usable than friendly.

Nice campground with good facilities. Lots of showers and bathrooms. Had some trouble with the electricity, but hopefully only due to the excessive rain. Food available for purchase isn't cheap, and the general store is open odd hours, but the restaurant is nice. No free wifi around grounds, but computers available in bar and you can also hook up your own computer to wifi there. The shuttle from the train costs 1€ per trip (free first time), but the walk is doable if you prefer not to pay.

Great hostel. No keys here, you buzz to get in. I am incredibly grateful to the staff, they took us in in the middle of the night when we arrived earlier than anticipated and with reservations only for the next few nights. Not really 24 hour reception, but staff is up pretty late and then awake again by at least 7. As a female though, don't expect a reprieve from male attention here, although privacy in the rooms is no issue.

I really enjoyed my time here. Definitely one of my favorite hostel experiences. Staff is incredibly helpful, Hamza helped me organize my whole itinerary for Morocco. Felt safe and comfortable here. The facilities are nice and spacious (although space in the dorm rooms is a bit tight). No locks on room doors (at least not the dorm), but locks for individual lockers which are large enough for backpacks. Plenty of spare blankets. Still missing the mint tea they serve at breakfast.

Easy to find walking from the border, and close to everything. When we arrived no one was at reception, so we were locked out. When we tried calling, no one answered the phone. However, when we returned maybe 10 minutes later staff was back and made no indication that they hadn't been there all along. Wifi only works in the cafe, and there are signs indicating that no outside food is allowed. Staff speaks minimal English, but fluent in Spanish. Make sure you have UK converters. It is clean.

I would say this hostel is more like a budget hotel. The staff is lovely, very little English, but we managed to communicate. There is a small common area, but we never saw anyone besides ourselves using it. There is no kitchen, also the Internet was pretty inconsistent. But it was very clean, quiet, and nice.

This place was the best. There was no one else there while we were in town so my party of three had the place to ourselves. We stayed in the spacious five person dorm room, which has great art hanging on the walls. Breakfast was simple, but delicios and filling. It included freshly squeezed orange juice! Concha, the owner, was really lovely and the hostel was in an easy to find location. I'd definitely stay here again.

Hostel was good value and great location near La Sagrada Familia and Parc Güell. 30 minute walk from Las Ramblas, which is fine if you are expecting that. The staff was constantly cleaning and very nice and helpful. We even went out with some of them. Rooms were spacious, there are no security lockers in them but you can leave valuables at reception if you wish. The kitchen and common area are small and just the basics, as they say when you check-in, don't expect to cook a Christmas dinner here.
