This is a cute hostel that brings The styles of Taiwan and the Greek islands together. Not too far from the subway and near the harbor, there are heaps of places nearby to eat and drink. Great for a few days in beautiful Kaohsiung!

The staff were really friendly - gave us details for the next leg of the journey and booked a cab for us too. The cooked breakfast was a nice touch. Wang Mart downstairs has a good collection of Korean ice creams. One thing - the blanket was really short. Maybe more suitable for a little kid 😜

Namsan Guest House, Seoul, South Korea

3rd Jul 2016

I was in the 8 bed dorm which was full of cute and cosy capsules. Each had its own lights, power points and tv. As long as your neighbors don't feel it ok to have phone calls at inappropriate times, you will have a great sleep. The nieghbourhood is great - easy access to the subway and about three billion shops and restaurants in Namsan. Go for a walk about the mountain too, it's rad. I was very happy with the hostel.

The boss took us out to a gig on Saturday night (an aboriginal musician from Pingdong) which was lots of fun - thanks! The hostel is in an old house with plenty of character (and very low ceilings and doors). A nice place to spend a few days in sleepy Dulan.

Perfect if you have an overnight transfer in Frankfurt. And also perfect if you want to explore a semi-developed business park.

What a great hostel! The staff helped fix my booking problem and saved me some $$$. Consistently helpful and friendly in a clean and conveniently located hostel. I could tell they were really trying to ensure everyone had a great stay in Berlin. The bar and common area are an easy place to meet new folks. Plus the free beer on arrival really hit the spot!

OPERA Hostel, Erfurt, Germany

21st Aug 2015

The Opera Hostel has a very classy fit-out; it is well-maintained and clean. Despite some small problems around my booking the staff were able to sort it out and I didn't have to pay extra. Some of the male staff have a bit of trouble managing a smile, but hey, whatever. The street outside gets fairly noisy on weekends with drunken revellers carousing.

On Top Backpackers, Dunedin, New Zealand
7.1
10th Mar 2015

On Top has poor acoustics. External sounds loudly travel past all the outward facing rooms and the walls are very thin (you can hear your neighbours snoring, coughing, and so on). Bring ear plugs (and I say this as a heavy sleeper). The bed wasn't too comfortable either. But if you want to stay on top of a pool hall and bar, and have it large, this place is the bomb.

Great location and helpful staff. Capsule hotel isn't quite accurate - maybe closet hotel describes the rooms better ;-) My room was surprisingly large but the bed was squeezed into a corner and anyone over about 175cm tall would have found it difficult to stretch out.

Located in a diverse and funky (at least funky for Singapore) neighbourhood. The 24 hour checkin was great. Really appreciated staff offering to help us with travel plans around Singapore (we didn't even have to ask them!). One gripe - the music played on the desk stereo - too much Coldplay and their ilk. But that's just me being a snob. Of the three places I've stayed in Singapore, this was the best by far.

Has the stink of stale cigarette smoke you associate with such venues in Japan, but otherwise did the job, albeit in a very compact way (ie the room and shower were tiny).

We have stayed in many hostels the world over and this is one of the best. Not only is the building one of the most charming and cozy you could ever dream of, the owners are incredibly friendly, going the extra length to make sure that your time in Tokyo is that little bit better. If you plan on staying in Tokyo, do yourself a big favour and book a room at Toco. A truly special hostel.

We had the misfortune of staying here on two of the three hot days that Oxford has in any given year. Ventilation in the hostel is very poor and as a result, the interior felt like a sauna. There are no fans in the rooms, common areas or kitchen and the place warms up very easily. Otherwise not a bad joint.
