Guestroom Aquarius

Bruges, Belgium
100%

From all places I've ever visited, this place is definitely one of the best. It is a small guesthouse with just one room, but it is a perfect one. It has all the facilities you will need for a weekend in Bruges. In addition, the owner is very friendly, the walk towards the city centre is pleasant, and the breakfast is big and luxurious (ours even included strawberries).

B&B Floralia

Florence, Italy

The B&B has a perfect location right in the heart of the city. But even though it may be touristy and crowded outside, the rooms inside are peaceful, while having everything you will need for a few days in Florence. The owners are friendly and the breakfast is good.

Globetrotters/The Townhouse

Dublin, Ireland
89%

The hostel / bed & breakfast has a good location and friendly staff. We got an upgrade to an ensuite bathroom, instead of a shared one. The interior looks good, and the rooms have all facilities you may need. The reception contains plenty of leaflets to select a tour to sights in or around Dublin, or to sign up for a pub crawl. It's not a party hostel, but certainly a perfect place to stay while you are in Dublin.

Indah Homestay

Senggigi, Indonesia
69%

'Indah' is Indonesian for 'beautiful'. Although I wouldn't call the homestay beautiful, it's a nice place to stay, even though it's a bit remote and away from the main road. The family is friendly, the garden looks ok, but the room is very basic, with an even more basic bathroom (squat toilet and a kind of shower). Breakfast is simple, but tasty.

Footprints Hostel

Singapore, Singapore

This hostel might be the best you can get in Singapore for such a good price! The lobby is nice, the breakfast has more than usual, the rooms and beds are fine, and the showers are clean. And because it's located in between two MRT stations with different lines, it's easy to get around the city.

Although I definitely have no complaints about the dorm (the beds are ok, just like the bathroom), it's the overal appeal that lacks. The staff isn't particularly friendly, while the location is pretty remote. Also please don't book any diving trip with them. Although the dives in the area are amazing, the organization at the center is bad, and the divemasters don't care anything about safety measurements and a decent (de)briefing of dives.

This guesthouse has a very nice atmosphere, a cozy common room, and some dorms with good beds. It's one of the few guesthouses where you will see some plants standing at several places. Mrs Lee is extremely friendly and is very helpful in booking transport or trips to Niah or Lambir Hills National Park, or even to Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei.

This nice guesthouse has several good rooms with definitely the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in during my travels.

And there is a hot shower, which is quite welcome after some days in Bako NP or Iban longhouses!

This hostel is spread over two buildings, with the small dorm (4 people) in its own building. The living room, however, is big and cozy, with some books and a tv. There's even a kitchen in case you feel like preparing something. The location is good, with all sights and eateries within walking distance.

Hotel Sri Emas

Jerantut, Malaysia
54%

There aren't many options available in Jerantut, so it's ok to stay here for one night. But don't expect too much. The rooms are very simple with a bed with a very thin mattress. All bathrooms seem to have problems, whether it's a door that cannot be closed, a broken shower, or a mess on the floor. And well, there's not much more to tell, because there's nothing else in the hotel. They got wifi in the lobby, though.

This is a nice guesthouse with a beautiful river view, located in Chinatown, making it a perfect base to find good food and do some interesting sightseeing, because everything is within walking distance. The owner is a friendly guy and the guesthouse looks ok, although the plaster is literally falling off the wall in some rooms. But that shouldn't keep you away from this nice place!

EDU Hostel Jogja

Yogyakarta, Indonesia
89%

It was quite a surprise to find such a big hostel, but it looks beautiful and has good dorms with private bathrooms. The free breakfast on the rooftop is ok, and the lounge is a great place to watch tv or hang out with other guests. The tours that are offered are a bit too expensive (and require at least 2 people), so it's better to check out some travel agencies instead. But overall I enjoyed the hostel a lot, and I don't think there's another place where you get more bang for your buck.

I was surprised about the enormous luxury of the room, which was well worth its price. A private bath+shower, bed, tv, desk, hair dryer... even an emergency pack! Included breakfast is also good. Don't worry about places to go to, as the owner will mark every small detail on your map when you arrive! A great place to stay when visiting the easy to reach Seoraksan National Park!

Come Inn Guesthouse

After dozens of hostels, I thought I've already seen the best of the best, but Come Inn Guesthouse exceeded all. It is located in a lively university area and has nice rooms. You can make use of the kitchen, and do your laundry for free. The small living room is cozy, but it's the staff that makes this place a gem, whether you are staying for a day or a week. Justin is such a friendly guy, and seems to take care more of his guests than himself. Always interested and helpful. And dog Jelly is fun

The capsules are OK, and the location is good, as it is near the metro and train station. Good for one or two nights, but look elsewhere if you stay longer in Tokyo and prefer more and better facilities (i.e. bathroom, wifi, lounge).
