Very relaxing vibe at this hostel. Nice courtyard and sunny guest kitchen. Reception staff was friendly and knowledgeable, facilities were always clean as well. Location isn't superb, a fifteen minute to half hour walk from anywhere worth visiting, but there are supermarkets and restaurants close by.

This hostel has a nice location, in walking distance from many of Cape Town's highlights and vibrant streets such as Kloof Street and Long Street. Bars and restaurants all around. But quiet at night because it's off the main streets. It has a cool swimming pool and clean facilities. Solid hostel!

Wonderful hostel: beautiful garden, clean bathrooms, big guest kitchen, excellent dinners, comfy beds, many spaces to sit and lounge inside and out,... Also enjoyed the cycling tour to the caves and ostrich farm they offer. We had a flat tire and help immediately came! Definitely recommend!

Island Vibe Knysna, Knysna, South Africa

18th Nov 2016

The hostel has friendly staff and good, clean facilities such as guest kitchen and ensuite bathrooms. Fire for a braai every night as well, and a free muffin in the morning! But when you don't have your own car, it's difficult to get to Knysna's main attractions such as the deepwalle forest or the elephant park, the hostel can only offer a very expensive shuttle. So just keep this is mind. We rented bikes and cycled round the lagoon, but others were disappointed and checked out early.

Great stop along the coast route. The hostel attracts many fun backpackers so there's plenty of people to talk to during the communal dinner or play cards with after. They offer nice trips and surf lessons, and the bar is cheap. Friendly staff, only the host lady is a bit snippy so don't ask her. Definitely recommend this place!

Very helpful staff and great facilities (multiple kitchens, bathrooms, lounge areas, pool). Not in walking distance from shops or restaurants unfortunately, so do your shopping beforehand. The dinner is very nice but a bit pricey. We enjoyed our stay here!

Decent hostel in a very good location (close to the Bund and excellent subway connection). Staff was friendly and helped me out with printing some documents. Dorms have lockers and nightlights at every bed. Nice lounge to hang out and meet fellow travellers. Bathrooms were clean enough. I always stay here when visiting Shanghai, always satisfied.

Amigos Hostel, Hualien, Taiwan
9.1
29th Mar 2016

A good choice if you're staying in Hualien. The location is close to the trainstation and the bus to Taroko Gorge, but a bit far from downtown and the night market. There is free breakfast but it's a premade sandwich so maybe you can find breakfast elsewhere (plenty of options around the hostel). When I stayed at Amigos, not many other tourists were there but the common lounge area is very cosy to sit and read. The staff is very friendly and tries to help you plan your trip to Taroko.

Very nice hostel, with a simple but fulfilling breakfast. Great location, quiet at night and yet in the heart of Taipei. Staff is friendly and there is a ton of information on Taipei available. I would definitely recommend this hostel!

Hongdae Lazy Fox Hostel In Seoul, Seoul, South Korea
9.7
25th Sep 2015

This is a great hostel for every young traveller who ends up in Seoul! The beds are soft and comfortable, the breakfast is decent, the location is excellent and the atmosphere is the best of all. I stayed there two times and met many fellow travelers in the common area. The hostel is close to one of the most vibrant areas in Seoul (Hongdae) but is located in a quiet street, so I slept well every night. Good place to stay!

Thank you so much for the kind words:) we hope to have you sleeping in our soft beds again very soon! :)

Garden Inn has comfortable dorm rooms with soft beds to sleep in. The staff was helpful, answering questions easily regarding treks and transportation. They kept my luggage for free during my Tiger Leaping Gorge trek. I also really liked their sandwiches and breakfasts. There are some chairs to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. I would stay here again!

Five Elements Hostel, Dali, China
8.3
29th Mar 2015

Five elements is a hostel perfect for relaxing and enjoying the area. I think their location is great because you don't want to be stuck in the neonlights and deafening music of the Old Town by night, and it's quite easy to cross the road (never took me more than 10 seconds). The facilities are decent and kept clean, and the dorms are spacious, but the beds are quite hard. Staff were very helpful and friendly! They rent bikes and host movie nights, so it's a good choice when staying in Dali!

There is a very nice rooftop area where travellers can meet and talk. They also rent out good bikes! The dorms are average but clean and the building has a very nice open layout. But the staff that were on duty didn't seem to really like their job, giving short and unsufficient answers when I asked about the area, so I would not say they are really helpful or friendly. Stay for the rooftop and the travellers, not for the staff...

Nice location in a nice neighbourhood. Unfortunately, no lockers! Some of the staff are friendly and helpful, some are not (I had a bad experience with a rude, uncaring staff member). My room was clean and breakfast was poorly served, but decent.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The hostel is located right in the centre of Seville, good breakfast, friendly staff, clean, comfortable beds, hot showers, perfect roofterrace. I was staying in a room with 8 people and sharing a single bathroom was sometimes tricky, but other than that everything was good.

There was a lot of noise in the hallways after 10 pm. People were singing, laughing, playing guitar and the staff didn't say anything about it. It's a very clean and well-equiped hostel, but don't expect a lot of sleep. Also quite far from the city centre.
