Harbour Hostel Stykkishólmur

Stykkisholmur, Iceland

A nice hostel, the staff are lovely and very helpful. Great location right near the harbour, excellent wifi, bathrooms are clean and rooms are neat and comfortable. Plenty of places to park if you have a car. Would happily stay here again!

Igdlo Guesthouse

Reykjavik, Iceland

Lovely hostel, the staff are fantastic and so helpful! Very clean and comfortable rooms (THE best bed I've ever had in a hostel, it was huge and so soft) and right near the main bus station, which is excellent. Plenty of kitchen space, the bathrooms are clean and wifi works well in the rooms. A short, easy walk into town - would happily stay here again!

Greg & Tom Hostel

Krakow, Poland

Great hostel, the staff are so lovely! Room was nice, wifi worked perfectly and the free dinners were excellent. There is a good common room for meeting people and the hostel is very close to the train station. Would happily stay here again.

Flamingo Hostel

Krakow, Poland

Excellent location in the old town! The hostel is clean and the staff are so friendly and helpful. There were some negatives - the wifi isn't great, no atmosphere (though it is a quiet time of year) and the walls are paper thin - but overall it was a nice place and I would stay again.

Vertigo Centre

Marseille, France

Close to the main train station, which was great for our needs. The rooms were decent enough, and the outside common area was nice. The staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was nice. The kitchen wasn't great and it was quite cramped, but better than no kitchen at all. The area seemed a little seedy, but I guess that's normal near train stations. Would probably like to stay closer to the harbour next time.

Aquitain Hotel

Bordeaux, France

Bit of a walk to the old town, but right near the train station so it was great for our needs. The staff were nice and the rooms were lovely and clean. Wifi worked well in our room, but not much atmosphere given it's a hotel. If we didn't need to leave very early on a train I would have preferred to be closer to town, but it's a decent place to sleep.

Hostel Van Gogh

Amsterdam, Netherlands

More hotel than hostel, so not much atmosphere. The location is good because it's away from the tourist insanity of the red light district and public transport there is easy. The room was nice and clean, but it wasn't worth the price we paid for it. The guy on the front desk had terrible customer service skills, the vending machine is expensive, and the wifi blocks 'dangerous' websites (for example, the Heineken Brewery - a beer from Holland AND a big tourist attraction in Amsterdam ... What?!).

Hostel Havana

Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic

Value for money is excellent, it's so cheap! You'll have to walk into town though, roughly 10-15 minutes to the centre. Staff were nice and the bathrooms were clean. There wasn't much atmosphere, but there is a nice garden to sit in. Not sure what security was in place to stop random people wandering in, but we had no issues anyway. Wifi worked in our room, which was good, and the kitchen was ok. Overall it was decent enough for our stay in Cesky Krumlov.

Hostel Marmota

Innsbruck, Austria

The hostel is a little bit out of town, but it's right near the bus stop so it's easy enough to get there and back from the city centre. The staff were nice, the hostel was clean and there is a decent kitchen for guests to use. The best thing about it is the value for money! So cheap for what you get! The negatives: wasn't much atmosphere and the wifi only works in the common room. Other than that, it's a great place to stay when visiting Innsbruck!

City Backpacker - Hostel Biber

Zurich, Switzerland

Really great location in the old town! Pretty expensive for what you get, but that's just Switzerland as a whole. Staff were very nice and there is a lovely rooftop area where you can eat your dinner with fellow travellers. The wifi could have been better (very hard to get a connection away from the common area) and I don't think closing reception between 12-3pm is the best idea, but, hey, it's not the end of the world. It's also an easy walk from the station, which is an important factor!

Abraham Hostel Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Israel

Good location and a light rail station right out the front that can take you to the Old City if you'd prefer not to walk (15-20mins walk). Rooms were clean, but they are fairly noisy as there didn't seem to be much soundproofing between rooms or the hallway. Wifi was decent in the common areas, not as good in the dorms. The staff weren't great - not rude, just not very friendly. The best thing was probably the shower!

Cleopetra Hostel

Petra, Jordan

Cleopetra is the best place to stay in Wadi Musa! The staff are fantastic (particularly Mosleh!), it's clean and very comfortable, the breakfast is delicious, the location is good, and it has a friendly atmosphere. They also drive you to the Visitor's Centre (from where you start your exploration of Petra) in the morning, anytime you want, free of charge! We really appreciated this because some places will only take you at set times. In short, Cleopetra is a great place to stay!


Good location - plenty of places to eat close by and the beach is just over the road. To get into town for an ATM it's about a 20-30min walk or else a short three-wheeler ride. Lovely big balcony overlooking the street and the room was nice and very clean. The staff were nice enough, but we hardly saw them so wasn't much opportunity to ask for travel advice. We also weren't sure which people actually worked there... Overall it was nice for our one night stay.

Great place, very sweet set up, can be loud but most guests keep it quiet in the early hours. Worth staying just to experience the jail!
