Travellers Oasis

Cairns, Australia

A well run hostel. Very clean, and the staff are wonderful

FUN-D Hostel Chiang Rai

Chiang Rai, Thailand

Great place to stay, very clean, friendly and helpful staff.

Gongkaew Chiangmai Home

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Nice place, in a quiet part of town, not as touristy as the Eastern part of the old city. Cool common area to hang out. Dorm was comfortable and clean. Bathroom area was basic and perhaps a bit old, but was clean also.

Beatty Lodge

Perth, Australia

Great location, nearby Oxford St has good shops and eateries etc. The staff were very nice, and the place is clean. It's got some weird policies though, like a $10 deposit for crockery & cutlery (on top of the $20 key deposit) and "friendly reminder" notices stuck to your door before your check out. Also internet/wifi is not free. No lockers in the dorm. Surcharge for paying by credit card. Shuttle to airport picks you up from CARR ST.

YHA York

York, England

It's not right in town but only about 20mins walk away (also about 20-30mins walk from train station or coach stop). The hostel is very clean, the dorm was spacious and comfortable. The staff were very helpful. No lockers though. Internet and wifi were both very expensive. (Free wifi at the library). Lots of families and other groups staying here at the time, so not such a good atmosphere for the solo traveller.

YHA Stow on the Wold

Cotswolds, England

Awesome location, in the town centre and so close to the bus stop. Very clean and comfortable. No lockers. Internet/wifi is a whopping 4 pounds per hour, or 8 pounds per day.

YHA Derwentwater

Lake District, England

Dorm was spacious and comfortable. Staff were very helpful. It's possible, but quite tricky (and pricey) to travel by public transport in this region. Would be helpful to have some directions for those arriving by public transport in any case. It's a nice location though, if you like nature and quiet, with the lake just across the road, bush and a little waterfall at the back. Didn't seem like there were quite enough showers and toilets for such a large hostel. Wifi was also much too expensive.

Embassie Liverpool Backpackers

Liverpool, England

This is so much more than your average hostel. Excellent and free Beatles tour every Thurs evening, taken by Kevin himself, and finishing at the Cavern club. Everything was kept very clean, hand towels were changed often, etc. Staff were great, very friendly. Lots of local knowledge about the city. Beautiful house, only 20mins walk from bus and train stations. This is the place to stay in Liverpool!

Reykjavik Downtown Hostel

Reykjavik, Iceland

The dorm was very comfortable and very clean. Same with the bathroom. The staff were helpful. Great location, walking distance to shops, bars, attractions etc. Only downside was the cooking area, which is way too small and under equipped. Also the laundry is a bit of a pain (just one of each machine and you have to book) and quite expensive (5000 ISK each for washer and dryer I think).

Clarence Castle

Toronto, Canada

This is a fantastic hostel. It's in a really good location. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The included breakfast is great (cereal, toast, fruit), there is free internet and free wifi, and they even provide you with a towel. It's not a big hostel, which is nice. It's got a cosy feel to it. Would recommend!

Shelter Jordan

Amsterdam, Netherlands

It's my second time here, this is a good hostel to stay at.

Lybeer Travellers' Hostel

Bruges, Belgium

The location is great, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is really good.

Shelter Jordan

Amsterdam, Netherlands

This hostel is in a really cool neighbourhood (Jordaan) and it felt safe. Anne Frank house and Westerkerk are just down the road, and it's only a short walk from most other sightseeing spots. It is a Christian hostel but it's a good place to stay even if you're not Christian.

Bahaus Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

This hostel is in a really good location. The staff are really friendly.

Hotel Turnerwirt

Salzburg, Austria

This is an excellent guesthouse. It's just a short bus ride to the sights in Salzburg, and the bus stop is right outside. The breakfast was not included in the price of the room, but it was very good.

Hotel Europa Life

Frankfurt, Germany

Great hotel, very clean, the breakfast is excellent, the staff are helpful, would recommend.
