This hostel is very clean and the staff very friendly. This is a place to relax and get de-stress. Convenient to everything located in Monterey and plenty of parking. There was only one caveat during my stay...was the smell of my room the first two nights, which smelt a little like a wet dog. Though, it may be my roommates than the room. Otherwise, it was a nice stay altogether.


Orange Drive Hostel

Los Angeles, USA

Free parking, one block from the TLC Chinese Theater on Hollywood Boulevard, and a variety of public transportation options - it is the ideal location to stay. It's located in a side street off of Hollywood Boulevard that's actually very quiet and nice. I would definitely stay here again.

A very nice place to stay: clean and very comfortable beds. Located about a 25 minute walk from Ocean Beach, conveniently across a grocery store and a small handful of restaurants, and inexpensive dinners provided at the hostel. Street parking is usually available and free. I ended up extending to use the full 14 days allowed. No alcohol on the premise - so not a party place, but it is a very social place.

Basic hotel within walking distance of the main strip. The breakfast vouchers were nice, allowing you to choose between three basic meals (beverages not included). The room was a little dusty around the edges of the bed and on the carpet along the wall, but other than that it was as comfortable as could be. A decent alternative to hostels for low budget and you get your own private room.

It's such a chill, laid-back environment. I became very comfortable and ended up extending my stay for an additional two nights. Located in the Historic Town of Flagstaff, it was very convenient to walk to restaurants and bars and is right next door to the train station. It's fairly clean as best as a hostel can be. There are no lockers, however, I didn't have any issues with anything gone missing.


Bush Village Budget Cabins

Airlie Beach, Australia
77%

The dorms were nice - each cabin with a dedicated kitchen and bathroom. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Location was a 40 min. walk to Airlie Beach downtown area using the beach walk route. You can take a bus $2.70 one-way. Good place for families or people who want peace and quiet, but not for those who want the convenience of experiencing the Airlie beach nightlife or restaurants within walking distance. Internet cost $2 per 20 min. or you pay $3 per hour wifi, but it's very slow.


Bungalow Bay Koala Village YHA

Magnetic Island, Australia

Overall, the village is a great place to get away from the crowd and chill out. There's plenty of wildlife in the village to keep you interested. Though, at night the animals can be loud. Staff were nice enough, but were a bit disorganized and lack the personable touch I've experienced at other hostels. The koala sanctuary tour and bush tucker breakfast are discounted to guests if purchased together and well worth it for the opportunity to get close and personal with the animals.


Globetrotters International

Cairns, Australia

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful for booking tours. They had all the insights on what the better tour companies had to offer. Additionally, the staff will go out of the way to make you welcome. I had a last minute room change, which wasn't a big deal to me, but I was compensated with a $50+ discount on a tour. My room had a separate kitchen and bathroom, and a large flatscreen TV. It was pretty nice. Free wi-fi, and several areas to hang out.

Free Internet. Great location for walking to all the interesting sites. A bit on the pricey side, but clean and friendly atmosphere.


Atillas Getaway

Selcuk, Turkey

The entire atmosphere creates a fabulous setting to meet other travelers. It has a pool, pool table,and lounge area. Every night you're invited to eat dinner at a common table with other guests for an an unbeatable price. You get a heaping dish with a delicious home cooked meal. After dinner, everyone would get sit around an open fire pit, play pool, take crazy swims in the cold pool, or just hang around the bar where the owner drank with you & even occasionally supplied you a few free drinks.

This place was really nice, clean.


Shelter Jordan

Amsterdam, Netherlands

This is a decent hostel: clean, well-managed, and within a decent location. About a 20-minute walk or 5-minute bus ride from Dam square. If you're looking for a party hostel, this is not the place. Though, you will meet some nice backpackers.


Wombats City Hostel Berlin

The view from the bar (located on the roof) was great. Though, it could use a pick-me-up of better music to liven up the place.


Academy Hostel

Florence, Italy

This is probably one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. The rooms were very nice and clean. The staff exceptionally friendly and fun. The breakfast was decent. In the evenings, the staff would hold socials with free food and beverages, which is a nice touch.


Absolut Venice

Venice, Italy

Staff were very friendly. The hostel was clean and it was located in a great convenient location from the train and bus station. The directions they provided was very straightforward. The only downside is the itemized costs and fees outside the cost of the stay, though they are upfront about it in their site description when you book.

Everything was very nice, except the girls bathroom, which smelled like urine.


Hotel France Albion

Clean, great location. Though, it had a very tiny bathroom and shower. The curtains were not that good, so the entire bathroom floor would flood after a shower.
