Rocinha Guest House, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The hostel and the area of Rocinha is a magical place. The family were really welcoming and made all the guests while I was there feel at home, sharing meals with us and enjoying the experience of watching World Cup matches together. The view from the hostel is one of the best in the world (and I've worked at Oban). This has got to be one of the most outstanding places I've stayed and if your nerves are frayed after the motor taxi ride get in the hammock and let your cares go.

Had a great stay here at the height of the World Cup and I can't believe the comments from others about this hostel - the staff couldn't do enough for me even though I couldn't speak any of the language - they provided me with another TV when the one in my room wasn't working which to me meant a lot - after all its a hostel not a hotel, get real. It is in a great area full of atmosphere, near the beach and lots of facilities such as shops, banks and places to eat on the doorstep.

The staff were ever so helpful and informative on things to visit and do and were able to book my next place to stay. Easy to find if coming from the train station - very clean and comfortable

Didn't actually stay at Marco Polo due to the owner Mickey overbooking I guess but the staff from Konak hotel were great and eased my worries at not having the facilities I'd booked ie kitchen, internet - Mickey is on the take - get it - so if you book Marco Polo beware !!!

Lena was the perfect host and made me feel very welcome, I could not have asked for better. The tv in the room was a bonus and the location just across from the station is just what I needed.

Nikolina rooms, Dubrovnik, Croatia

27th Dec 2009

On a scale of 1 to 10 we'd have to give this 11, like Nigels Amp in Spinal Tap, 10 just does not convey how good it was - it was the best - Jele and her husband gave us the warmest of Croatian welcomes, their hospitality cannot be faulted. A most memorable stay that can't and won't be beaten - (I don't think) Never mind 11 make that scale go to 12

I�ve been travelling for three months and its one of the best places I�d stayed this maybe because I had the place to myself but its in a great spot, was warm and at a good price for what you get. It felt like home for the days i was there wish I�d got there earlier rather than staying in some cold hostels.
