Rest assured this is a comfortable oasis in a wonderful country. The owner and staff ensured that my stay was memorable and satisfactory. Upon my return to Cotonou, it was an easy decision to stay here again. If luck finds me, I will happily stay here a third time.

I couldn't have been more impressed. Fully recommended. This may be the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed at in over 5 years of continuous travel.


B&B at Bailanysh

Karakol, Kyrgyzstan
100%

I loved this place. It's new and it's only going to get better. This is not the party hostel. This is the stay with a Kyrgyz family and experience the culture. There is a charming back yard with a yurt that can be rented or used as a reading room. The room I had was comfortable, clean, newly renovated and had heat and hot water. The people though were the true highlight. Stay and you'll understand. Outstanding free breakfast. Close enough to town but bring a flashlight after dark.


Hostel Inn Chuy142

You know the kind of place that makes you feel welcome as soon as you arrive? Yeah, that's this place. Kind staff, and a generous owner that was interested in everyone that walked in. I wish I had more time to stay. Perhaps one more washroom would make this place even better. Not the easiest place to find so be sure you get detailed instructions in addition to the ones on the site. You need to know to walk around back and through a door up the stairs. Good place.


Mirzo B&B Hostel

Tashkent, Uzbekistan
97%

A tourist might want a hotel. A traveller will want to stay here at this guesthouse. You will be treated like a GUEST in their HOUSE. I loved it, and returned a second time. The son is friendly and warm and helpful. The father is a history scholar who surprised me by playing his great grandfather's dutar. (2-string guitar). What an experience! Close to bazaar, metro and local grocery store and restaurants. Warm room, comfortable and clean. Recommended fully.

It was the concern of the staff when they found I wasn't feeling well that is most memorable. Nice. And convenient location too.

All good here. Happy to find out I unintentionally booked the same hostel here as when I was here 5 years ago. Still great stuff. Great staff. And better Breakfast than before. Recommended fully

I would easily return here. 4 days is hardly enough. A simple Breakfast option would be nice but otherwise it is money well spent. Great location and staff.

Everything I hoped for from a guesthouse in Addis. And more. Such a kind family and very helpful. Even offered me a free ride to the airport. Tops marks.

I stayed in their hostel in Colombia years ago which I thought was great. This matched that hostels quality of staff and overall vibe and facilities. Different city but same experience. Best roommates ever as well.


Mama Brasil Hostel

Sao Paulo, Brazil

I've stayed in hundreds of hostels, and this is everything I'd hope for when booking a new one. Warm friendly fun owners with a homelike feel and cool common room to hang after a day or night out. I will always stay here while in SP. Great.

Mount Lavinia Home Stay

Colombo, Sri Lanka
94%

Priyani was a warm and welcoming host. She shared her time and family stories graciously. She ensured all was looked after including waking up at 3:45 in the morning to see that my taxi arrived. So close to the beach and cafes on the waterfront. I hope to return to Sri Lanka, and I will aim to stay here again. Fully recommended to anyone wishing to see inside a real Sri Lanka home. ( Read: not the place to go to party. )


Clock Inn Colombo

Colombo, Sri Lanka
100%

Well, it is not quite deserving of top marks in Atmosphere or Location, but I felt compelled to rate it as high as possible because it is beyond Excellent on so many other levels. They need to show other hostels how it is done. Clean, efficient, safe, secure, air conditioned, casual, bright and wired. A good restaurant nearby, and a quick walk to the water. Well done Clock Inn. Well done.

HI - Winnipeg Downtown

Friendly staff. Good beds. Warm and safe inside. Good restaurant/lounge in building. Pub in building but noise didn't reach the room. Could improve things like having lockers in all rooms, the lock on the washroom was broken, and frankly it's not in the best neighbourhood. That being said, I enjoyed my stay and had no problems.

GOOD: staff, clean and a big place to meet a lot of people, and very close to subway. BAD: the natural downside to BIG is NOISE. Be warned.


Tone on Lex

New York, USA

GOOD: Free toothpaste. (I'm trying hard to think of something that stood out. It's great value for the money here. Cheap, safe and a somewhat unique way to live in NY...like at someone's house. BAD: Only place to hangout is in the kitchen with a tv above the table. Lame.


70%

GOOD: Fun house, great staff and loads to meet. Pool!! Bbq, tv, internet...everything you'd want. Good value for the money. BAD: Need to unclog the tub, and work on the cleanliness of toilets. Terrible shape. GOOD & BAD: Location is NOT in or near the French Quarter...which is both good and bad depending on when you want to party and when you want some peace.

My third time there. Didn't hesitate whatsoever going back. From warm hugs and a kiss on the cheek upon my return, to ensuring my taxi driver wouldn't overcharge a gringo... the staff couldn't be beat. Warm, safe, and comfortable...with towels and great wifi signal. And free coffee. Awesome.

Great deal with nothing to complain about. Great room, great beds, great staff, rooftop patio a bonus. Nice vibe inside. Bit of an uphill walk from the metro but otherwise well located. I would stay again for sure.

Fantastic experience overall, and would have stayed longer here if I could. Only area of improvement would be the toilets. Clean but old. The rest of the place will have you feeling like you´re staying with friends. Cool friends at that. So helpful, friendly and a great cook for the free breakfast (including scrambled eggs, meat, fruit, good coffee and cheese)

Free laundry! Good breakfast. All in addition to a clean place in a good location with friendly helpful staff and a nice pool. Not the thickest mattresses ever but I got a good sleep nonetheless. Good deal here.

Great place to meet other travellers, get some good advice and enjoy yourself in the city and in the hostel. They've got a good thing here. I'd return without question. More than your money's worth...

Seriously worth MORE than what you pay. They didn't miss a beat designing this hostel, and the staff is as friendly and helpful as imaginable. No worries recommending this one.

Everything was perfect in hostel terms. GREAT staff even took us on a free drive up to a locals-only viewpoint of the city, and were so helpful with advice and booking other hostels/transportation. Plus the place is spotless and charming in true Japanese style.

Golden Gobi is like home away from home. Bob and his warm, fun family looked after all my needs including running to the Chinese embassy to pick-up my visa for me. The tour through the Gobi desert that he arranged for us was fantastic; a truly local experience with no hidden costs or surprises. Oh, and the price is right too. I have no hesitation recommending this place. Enjoy your time here. I did.

I loved my stay at Silver Moon Guest house. I was very sad to leave not just the town, the seaside but also the family that ran the guest house. They looked after all my concerns, and made me feel like part of their family. I'll be back.


Soul Kitchen Hostel

St Petersburg, Russia
100%

Look no further. This is a great way to ease into St.Petersburg. The only negative thing about staying at Soul Kitchen is that all future hostels will fail to match it on so many levels. Great staff, great location, comfortable and clean. They even helped me celebrate with a bottle of vodka when the airline finally found/returned my luggage. It was sad to leave but great to stay at Soul Kitchen!


Goat Hostel

If the staff were anymore willing to help, I would question their sanity. LOVED THEM. Friendly, warm and patient even as I arrived past midnight. Great location for exploring the city and hitting a few restaurants and bars. Safe, easy choice. My only regret is I didn't see any goats.
