Blue Hotel Bratislava

Bratislava, Slovakia

We stayed here for a few nights. It was very comfortable with a large private ensuite attached to the room. The buffet breakfast was good quality and there was a fairly wide selection of different food. It's not that close to the city centre, but you can get there by tram easily. The place was quiet and there is someone on the front desk 24/7. Room service was conducted daily and the cleaning standards were high. A great place to stay, more expensive than most hostels but the quality shows why.

Red Dwarf Guesthouse

Dubrovnik, Croatia

I would firstly like to thank Nako for all his help and advice about Dubrovnik. The ride from the bus station and to the airport were very much appreciated. The hostel is on a hill and it's many stairs to get there but it's quiet and secure. However it's in the suburbs near restaurants which are cheaper than the old town. The bathroom was clean, and the fan in the room was a lifesaver from the heat. There is wifi too. I would suggest communal coffee/tea supplies for breakfast as there isn't any.


Kotor, Montenegro

We had a very pleasant stay here. The owners are an old couple who don't speak English. The old lady was incredibly sweet and made us coffee every morning. We had an entire annexe of the house to ourselves, it was secure, quiet, spacious and had a fan. The bathroom was clean although there was no hot water for two days. There is no wifi and also it's difficult to find from the bus station - would suggest adding a sign to the gate. You won't get tourist tips here so you must be more independent.

Sepic Accommodation

Zabljak, Montenegro

There is nothing bad to say about our stay with Mr. Šepić and his mother. The house is on a quiet road, a short walk from the town centre. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, with enough plugs and wifi available. Coffee or tea was provided for breakfast, along with cakes and biscuits. He provided all the information we needed about hikes in Durmitor park and speaks very good English. Both were extremely friendly and did everything they could. Thank you for such a great time in Žabljak!

Explorer Hostel

Podgorica, Montenegro

Well situated hostel near the bus station, although a little hard to find. We only stayed one night as a stopover and it was fine for our purposes. The room was quite small and hot although there was a fan, and the beds were more of a collapsed sofa. The bathroom was reasonably clean and there was wifi. It was quiet and Dino helped us with finding a restaurant to go to.


Could not fault this accommodation. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Daytrips can be arranged to enable you to see the harder-to-reach places in Georgia. The room was spacious, clean and private with a good wifi connection and comfortable beds. The guesthouse is a short walk away from the park in Borjomi and an even shorter walk from the high street, ATM, shops etc. Hosts speak a little English and Russian too. Really, really enjoyed my stay here.

Penthouse Hostel

Yerevan, Armenia

Great hostel, would especially like to thank the weekend staff while we were there, who helped us with all kinds of information and tips about Yerevan. Rooms are clean and lockable, although not the best ventilated - it was hot at night. Toilets and showers were fine, wifi was good when it worked but quite unreliable at times. Washing machine available, with washing line outside. Location is just a walk away from the city centre. Shop, ATM and restaurant very close. Would definitely stay again!

Art Hostel Taurus

Bratislava, Slovakia

I only stayed here for one night for business purposes. It was clean and quiet, the room was ensuite, with a TV and wifi. Slightly more expensive than comparable rooms I've stayed in before although it satisfied my needs at the time. Location was ideal for me, possibly not ideal for travellers wishing to be in the heart of Bratislava. From what I could see, the place was clean and tidy and staff were friendly and helpful.


Krakow, Poland

We stayed here over New Year and it was a very enjoyable stay. The location is not far from the centre and the price is very reasonable, to have an apartment to ourselves. It has one major failing though - it was extremely cold in there all the time, the tiled bathroom especially. Would suggest providing a heater for guests to use. Security was good and we were not disturbed. Full kitchenware set, fridge, microwave, toaster and oven available.

Central Hostel Riga

Riga, Latvia

This hostel is a nice place to stay. It's about a 20 minute walk into the city centre. The door was generally left open, but the rooms were lockable. Staff depended on who you were talking to - some were very nice and helpful, others not so much. The room was fairly clean and spacious and the atmosphere was usually calm and quiet. The bathrooms were lockable and decent, although only two is slightly less than ideal for a whole wing of rooms. Juice, bread, cereal was available for breakfast.

Karosta Prison

Liepaja, Latvia

This IS a prison, so its a bit different. The location was inconvenient - 4km away, with irregular buses, especially on weekends. Having said that, the staff were excellent and very friendly, they looked after us - someone is on the night shift constantly and we could lock our cell when we were out for the day. It isn't very clean, the floors are dusty, but then again, it's a place where tourists walk all day. The toilets have been modernised thankfully. Try something unusual! Why not.

Litinterp Guesthouse Klaipeda

Klaipeda, Lithuania

This is one of the best hostels I've ever been in. It is more like a hotel than a hostel. You get a basket of breakfast delivered in the morning, the room was spacious, with a TV, sink, kettle and tableware. Staff were helpful and when we arrived at night, we got instructions for getting in. Location is short walk from the old town or the harbour. Not a party place, if that's your thing. Very modern, clean toilet/showeroom with a lock. I was so impressed with this, would definitely stay again!

A Hostel

Vilnius, Lithuania

An excellent location right next to the main bus and train stations in Vilnius. There is a 24-hour bistro next door, so you can get some chips or kebab anytime you need (particularly useful if arriving at night). Security of the place wasn't that good - anyone could walk in, but the rooms were lockable. The bathroom facilities were clean and working, although hot water wasn't available constantly. The atmosphere was quiet or loud - depending which day of the week it was. I would stay here again.

M&J Hostel

Rome, Italy

Good hostel, right next to Termini station. Seemed very secure and the staff were friendly and helpful. No free wi-fi and the bathrooms were not the cleanest but overall a good place to spend a few nights.

Barbara Apartments

Pula, Croatia

Our stay at Barbara Apartments was very enjoyable, price reasonable and the accommodation met our needs. It's somewhat far away from the centre of Pula, you need a bus to the centre for 11KN or a 45 minute walk (uphill from town centre to accom). However the apartment was clean and tidy, nice bathroom and bedroom with a balcony. Staff were helpful and polite at all times. It's in a residential area away from the city centre so there's not much to do there, but overall a great place to stay!
