The Shaka

Hvar, Croatia

This hostel was fab! Great location, just a short walk to the town centre and some quieter beaches. The staff were so friendly with some great advice on what to do and where to go in Hvar and Split. Lockers were massive drawers under the bed (which you just need a padlock for) which were a great storage idea. Would definitely recommend this hostel to others.

Nona's Guesthouse

Korcula, Croatia

Absolutely LOVED staying here! Roberta and her parents were so welcoming and such lovely people. The location is perfect - right next to the water to swim and sunbathe, stunning views, next to the old town and port, a local bakery and cafe to chill out. Can't recommend enough. I will be back here again!! Thank you so much Roberta for a lovely stay :-)

Fabrizzios Terrace Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

Loved this place! Next time I'm in Barcelona I will be staying here. Ricky and Anna were amazing, so friendly and helpful. The free breakfast that is accessible all day was faultless. The rooms were so spacious, with fans and big lockers. The location was walking distance to the Casa Batllo and the metro a few blocks away got you anywhere in the city. Thanks so much for an awesome stay! :-)


Very quirky, cute hostel. The staff were all really friendly and there to help. Free breakfast was lovely- basket of baguette and croissant/pain au chocolat, jams, strong coffee, juice and cereals, so plenty to enjoy! Only thing that let it down was the four-bed room was very cramped, however I would still stay there again as the location was brill - right at the end of the canal and a short walk to the Metro and plenty of bars/restaurants/shops around.

Funny Palace Hostel

Rome, Italy

The staff at the hostel were brilliant- so friendly and helpful. Great location for the Termini. Beds were made every day. Security safe for each person in the room. Fridge to use, although no kitchen or communal area. Free coffee and croissant at the local cafe every morning. Fans in each room. I would definitely stay here again.


Loved this hostel! Was my first stay in a European one and has definitely set high standard. Staff were very accommodating and helpful. Free wi-fi was accessible in the room, decor was very funky and plenty of spaces in the communal area to chill out. Bar was good for socialising. Perfect location; I walked everyday into old town, which took 15 minutes. Metro station was across the road, a supermarket next door and daily market right on the door step. Highly recommend to anyone.

Planet Inn Backpackers

Perth, Australia

Not a bad place, although the kitchen was pretty dirty and the rooms weren\'t very clean. There are lockers in the room for security and a free bus outside the door into town. It\'s also about a 20 minute walk to Northbridge, which is nice. There is a a hostel bar so you can\'t drink your own alcohol there.

Mission Beach Retreat YHA

Mission Beach, Australia

Good little place to chill out. Friendly staff, regular transfers to the Greyhound stop and right next to the beach! Would definitely stay again. Could do with some lockers though for peace of mind.

Nomads Auckland

Auckland, New Zealand

Good location, friendly staff, cheap meal deals, good Internet and TV room. Awesome shower room/bathroom, it\'s huge!! My room wasn\'t very clean though. Would still stay again though.

USA Hostels San Francisco

San Francisco, USA

Excellent staff, so helpful and welcoming. Big common area downstairs which I found daunting to meet new people, although the hostel did arrange activities for some of the evenings. Good clean bathrooms and great location. Would definitely stay there again.

USA Hostels Hollywood

Los Angeles, USA

Super friendly staff, good area outside and bar for socialising. I wouldn\'t go out at night though, as the surrounding area is very rough. Great location for Hollywood Boulevard and transfers from the airport. I also got a door-to-door transfer to their other hostel in San Francisco, which I would definitely recommend (although they didn\'t do a return transfer on a Tuesday, but the Greyhound was ok for that)

Columbus Circle Hostel

New York, USA

Great location, staff weren\'t overly friendly and the hostel wasn\'t a very sociable place to meet people but I wasn\'t in the hostel much as New York has so many things to do. I would recommend the hostel though.
