Thanks Ghan and Dhurba for everything! Honestly, this was probably the friendliest place I stayed at during my month in Nepal. And I'll be back! Someday, might not be in September like I said, but when I'm back in Kathmandu, you better have a bed ready!

A great place to base yourself and explore some beaches and the Taroko Gorge. Fong, Paul, and the other staff (sorry, I can' t remember his name - the one who went biking with us to the beach!) were all amazing and friendly, offering tips to make the most of my time in Hualien. They create a great atmosphere in the hostel and it's obvious that they care about their guests! Thanks again guys!

I stayed in the 14-bed dorm for 4 nights and only have great things to say about this hostel. The beds were in a capsule layout and felt very private but not cramped at all, with 2 electrical outlets and a lamp at each bed, the facilities were well-maintained and the staff so friendly and helpful. Thanks for everything!

Love the double beds in the dorm - I've never seen a hostel with that before and definitely makes sleeping more comfortable. There's a nice courtyard with good space to chill and hang out, and the staff were very friendly. One of best hostels I've stayed at in Latin America!

Cozy place that's great to meet other travellers. The staff are so friendly and helpful as well. Keep in mind that you do have to climb five flights of stairs to get to the hostel, but you're rewarded with a wonderful view of Mt. Ararat from the balcony. I'd definitely stay here again if I return to Yerevan!

Really great hostel/guesthouse just across the river from the Kazbegi bus station, on the way to hiking up the famous church. There are 2 full bathrooms in the 8-bed dorm which was kept clean and had warm covers and blankets for the cool nights. The family offers delicious home-cooked breakfasts and dinners for a reasonable price as well. I'd stay here again if I'm ever back in Kazbegi!

This hostel has a wonderful reputation among travellers in the Balkans - and for good reason! Majda and Aldina do all they can to create a homey, comfortable, relaxing, community atmosphere. As I stayed here 2 years ago, I didn't do Bata's tour this time around, but everyone that did absolutely loved it! I wish I could've stayed longer if not for definite travel plans, but I have a feeling I'll be back someday!

Pros: cheap, relatively clean, good kitchen, staff are very friendly, free towels, upper rooms have a good view of the city (my room was on the 11th floor) Cons: no airconditioning, wifi available only on main floor, not much of a hostel atmosphere (although they do partner with Hostel Celica for events and discounts)

Very friendly staff and a nice, functional kitchen. Half the rooms face a street where there's a bar below that's quite loud at night which can't really be avoided, and then a rooster across the street wakes you up before sunrise on top of that (not the hostel's fault either)! Try to get a bed in one of the rooms facing the garden area instead!

Aline Hostel

This was a great place to chill out in Chefchaouen, especially on the terrace which has amazing views of the city and surrounding mountain countryside. It's true that the owner doesn't speak much English, but it was never a problem during my stay. He was very welcoming and hospitable otherwise. The dorms are cramped, but the price of a dorm bed is really cheap. As a bonus, there's a functional kitchen that guests can use which I've not seen in other hostels in Morocco.


Dar Rabha

This was a really nice hostel close to the souks and numerous restaurants to eat.

The staff were amazing, and the place was very clean!

I'd recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Guimaraes!

I'll definitely stay here again and will recommend Cheers to anyone going to Istanbul!

Easily one of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. It's a family-run place in a residential area, close walk to the beach but a bus ride (or a long walk) to the old city. They provide free pick up from the bus station which is quite rare but very welcome. I went on Ivi's amazing tour of Montenegro. There's a 6-person limit which makes it a really unique experience. Milka's french toast is legendary! If Dubrovnik is the pearl of the Adriatic, this hostel is the pearl of Dubrovnik!

Nice, new hostel well-located in a residential neighbourhood close enough to walk everywhere and just far enough away from the tourist crowds.

The only downside I can see is that there's no kitchen, but other than that, it is an excellent hostel!

Keep up the great work you do!

Better than average hostel and good value for money. Great location in the city centre near many historical sites. Offered reasonably-priced tours.
