Balkan Han Hostel

Cute small hostel. You are allowed to smoke in all the common areas, so it smells very strongly of cigarettes. Really helpful staff.

Nice and new hostel. Small, so meeting people is iffy. I had luck the first night, and then not so much the next night.

Sunny Lake has the best stereotypical hostel feel of anywhere I've been. Very social and chilled out. The guys that run this place are awesome - when I unexpectedly arrived at 2am the night before my reservation started, they made up the couch in the common area and let me nap until morning at no charge. Maybe not the place to stay if you need a/c and reliable hot water, but pretty great.

Great hostel with awesome day trips. Booked for two nights and stayed six. Breakfast isn't quite as awesome as the Sofia Hostel Mostel, but overall I liked this one better. Don't miss the UFO.

Great party hostel with plenty of ways to earn free drinks. That said, I felt a little old - I'm 28.

Nice enough place, though there was no place to hang out and talk after 9/10ish. We tried hanging out on the roof, but were told we were too loud.

After an overnight bus that dropped us off at 6am, they picked us up from the bus station, let us check in early, and then fed us breakfast when we woke up past noon. Great service!

Hotel Sapphire Residency

Mumbai, India

It's a budget hotel. Acceptably clean, and decent room service, but no character. Near the airport, so it takes a bit of money to get to the areas of the city that you want to visit.

Dr. Malik is very helpful, but there's no a/c in the dorm and the beds are minuscule. Breakfast was pretty much just toast and tea.

Love this place. Stayed here twice, book-ending my Cambodia trip. Staff was great about advice on how to get around, and also brought me medicine when I was passed out coughing in the common room.

No a/c, but you get a personal fan. Mattress on the floor is pretty thin foam. The owner is great though, and I met some good people here. Not related at all to any of the Nomads Hostels in NZ/AUS.

If you're not going to use the pool, don't stay here. The pool makes up for a lot of things. It's a very nice pool.

Great atmosphere, but the beds were the most uncomfortable I've experienced in three months of travelling, and the ant situation was a little ridiculous.

Love this place. Very modern, actually has a kitchen, great view of the temple across the street. Did have my kindle stolen here, but probably my own fault for getting complacent and not locking it up in the locker they give you.

Han Tang Inn Hostel

Pretty nice hostel, but the drain in the bathroom didn't work well so you were standing in water during your shower. The internet was also pretty inconsistent, but you can walk down the street to their sister hostel Han Tan House to use theirs. The other hostel also has a better bar, but this one has a very nice rooftop common area.


Lucky Family Hostel

By far the best of the three hostels I stayed at in Beijing. It would have been nice to have an attached restaurant, but there's plenty around.

Is a strange combination of hotel/hostel with a nice rooftop bar/restaurant, but the entire building stank of smoke, and I found peanuts in my bed.

Nice enough, and the restaurant was very nice, but the bathrooms stunk up the first floor.

Don't advertise free wifi when it's a crapshoot as to whether you'll be able to connect your device. Either upgrade your networking equipment to be able to handle the amount of guests your hostel has, or install equipment from one of the many companies that will handle it for you and charge for the internet. There are no libraries within walking distance which just compounds the issue. Needs more than one shower for a 12 person apartment. I did like the free club entry and drink every night.


Bunk Backpackers

Pretty large hostel, but well laid out. The continental breakfast every morning is only toast, cereal, and coffee, but that was good enough for me. It was actually one of the quieter hostels I've stayed at, but I was not in the section by the bar.

The room smelled a bit, but you run into that a lot at hostels with carpeting. The location was great for the beach, but not so good for getting into the city - 20 minute bus ride from downtown. They have Zenbu internet which I've learned to hate, but they at least give you a minimal voucher for it so that you can check your email, just remember to turn off any automatic picture uploads you might have on your phone or laptop otherwise it's gone in a minute.
