12th Jun 2014

The staff was friendly and the location was excellent, but it wasn't a very good value for our money. They double-booked without informing us, so we slept in the common room (which was actually quite comfortable due to the efforts of the very nice lady who put it together), but it was enraging that we sat waiting for an hour before they communicated this to us. Our bags were fine in the room that we left them in, but there was no security at all- it was definitely the honor system.

Galina's Flat, Moscow, Russia

9th May 2014

Once you accept that you will be staying at a kind woman's Soviet-era flat, you'll very much enjoy your stay. This isn't a five-star hotel, but it is perfectly comfortable, very genial, and a great price and location. Also, if you're a cat-lover, her cats are awesome!

You can't ask for a better Shanghai location (once you find the place) and everyone was very friendly and helpful (pluse they have great coffee!)

Kathmandu Madhuban Guesthouse, Kathmandu, Nepal

6th Oct 2013

Very nice staff and basic but comfortable rooms right in the heart of the backpacker area of Kathmandu (and a manageable walk from most sights) make this a great value for your stay in Kathmandu.

Head to the top floor for an excellent view of the Taj Mahal, some great food, and excellent conversation with the coolest staffer around!

Kandy Down Town Hostel, Kandy, Sri Lanka
9.1
23rd Sep 2013

The hostel is a bit of a jaunt from the lake (or a cheap tuktuk ride away), but its homey atmosphere and excellent and friendly staff (especially Chandra!) make it well worth your stay.
