Prince Albert Backpackers, Nelson, New Zealand

7th Aug 2017

Hostel beds attached to a pub premises basically. Lady was nice who welcomed me in and showed around. Free basic breakfast included, room for 4 was comfortable and warm with ensuite attached. Slight walk out of town but Nelson's not big so no big deal. TV room and chill out lounge downstairs next to the pub premises. Only stayed 1 night as only passing through, but I felt content with the place

Lovely homely hostel. I actually wish I'd had more time to stay here. Russell and his wife are kind welcoming experienced travellers who are very nice to talk with. Big lounge spaces, TV room, clean and well maintained, free bikes loaned out and even kayaks (weather permitting). The memorabilia and decorations around the hostel are fantastic too. They offer free shuttle pick up from train/ bus station - definitely do this as it is slightly out of town, but totally worth staying here!

Adventure Queenstown Hostel, Queenstown, New Zealand
9.1
30th Jul 2017

Couldn't get a better location - right in the heart of Queenstown. Lovely upstairs kitchen with big balcony space, more chilled lounge space to watch films etc. Beds and room very warm and comfy with a fantastic view of the mountains from ours. Staff were a superb and friendly bunch, able to chat with about anything basically. Rooms named after important people in the owners life - loved that. Entrusted guests with GoPro's, towels, etc. Kept clean and noise minimalists after 10pm. Awesome place

Big, spacious hostel. And not surprised by the high ratings. - Excellent cleanliness/ general upkeep of the place - Nice open reception plus cafe and bar. - Located right next to Central station - but more pricey than the other hostels but that's because the quality is higher standard. - Easy walking distance up George street to the centre of the city, staff were polite and nice on reception - Room is spacious and beds were comfortable and clean also One of the best to stay in Sydney

Chris and Ashley were superb support on the reception - I got a free upgrade to a 6 person room. Clean, good facilities, free simple breakfast, wifi, rooftop area with city views, events every day happening there and easy walk into the city. Also close to the Roma street transport hub. Above the kitchen and dining space, there's a nice chill out lounge with cinema style seating and a big HD TV for watching movies etc. Nice place to stay for young travellers in Brisbane

Only stayed one night but ladies on reception were fun, friendly and welcoming. Common area upstairs big and spacious with pool table and table tennis. Multiple clean showers and toilet spaces, and I liked the quiet room idea for people who like reading etc. Bed comfortable and the room was decent size with lockers and desk. Easy walking distance to main attractions in city centre. Overall good hostel with lots of local info and tours by reception for exploring round the city/ South Australia

Paper Plane Hostel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

25th Feb 2017

Whenever I come to Kuala Lumpur, I am staying here. Absolutely delightful little place, only slightly out the centre. The team are just joy. We chatted and laughed and got taken to a cool local market by the oh so wonderful manager. The design of the place is very cool too - very clean and well kept and in the rooms, the first time I've ever seen three tier bunk beds! They've created a very cool local band drawn map of the area with everything worth noting and visiting on it. Loved it all

Nice, clean hostel hidden behind blue gate and located down side street from town hall. Staff were cool and helpful with local stuff/ sights to see and do - one taught me guitar chords while we were there. Also, quiet whist we were there because out of season so we had a room and communal areas to ourselves, but no doubt a thriving place in Summer time. Cool rooms with different flags on each door and signing corridor up to main reception which you can leave message/ signature on - love that

The Monk's Bunk, Tallinn, Estonia

23rd Oct 2015

Got greeted with a shot of Estonian liquor and this place definitely knows how to drink/ encourage outings from travellers. As they advertise, not for those who want quiet, sleepy nights. Cool beer pong and communal space - they do many different activities like the bar crawl which we accidentally ended up out with. Showers and bedrooms decent - standard hostel bunkbeds. Within walking distance to Tallinn old town and the main attractions - definitely recommend 3 dragons under the Town hall

Greeted with a Latvian liquor shot - Anita is awesome, and the other staff we met here. The common room and kitchen space is cool - and the rooms have bunks which are nice and spacious. Located close to the centre and old town. Fun hostel, can do various activities - really good recommendations for the town too. Ala was one - a traditional restaurant nearby which had amazing local food (Lido is another Baltic buffet restaurant worth visiting)

Andrea and Andrea are fantastic hosts - it felt more like staying at a friends place than a B&B! The traditional setting is delightful with a beautiful outside yard (complete with pool) for dining etc. We met other guests at breakfast and enjoyed the company of everyone there, including our hosts who run round making sure everyone is looked after and has enough to eat etc. The signs to find the place were small and it is slightly hidden down a side-alley, but when you find it,well worth the stay

Oslo Hostel Central, Oslo, Norway
8.6
15th May 2015

The hostel was clean and well kept with a nice downstairs social space. The staff on reception are generally pleasant and friendly. Expensive for a hostel but no doubt that's to do with it being Norway pricing too. Very close to Karl Johans Gate and the centre. Walk in showers and the hostel provides breakfast and a towel/ clean sheets as part of the price which does make it better value. And the breakfast was decent too - with quite a few options. Glad I stayed for sure.

Podstel Bucharest, Bucharest, Romania

Tucked away behind Union Square - very cosy and clean premises with a nice common area (which hosts tea parties for cool, young locals) and small but spacious front courtyard. Every member of staff is so friendly and helpful and the bunk beds are comfortable. Loved the shoes off at the door policy! And the no-smoking inside (unlike a lot of other establishments in Bucharest). About 20 minutes from Old Town but worth it - cute, cool little hostel! Thanks Doors and all your peeps, we loved it...

Did it's job, for me ot was like a basic 2 star hotel; only these rooms are in an apartment complex. Lady was nice on reception. Ok Swimming pool out back - close to San Antonio centre - particularly Cafe Del Mar etc. Probably a decent price for Ibiza, but it was out of season and they were closing for Winter the day after I left.

Literally one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. The staff are very welcoming, lovely and helpful, you can't go wrong when there is a signing wall everyone can draw/ write on in reception! The rooms are very clean and tidy, plus towel, locker and fresh daily bed sheets provided. Theres an awesome terrace balcony/ social space upstairs (

Overall good hostel with friendly staff and located only few minutes from plaza mayor etc. The common area is inside (no garden or outside space) but is good sized room for social space. Whoever the guy is who cooks the €2 paella - legend. Flamenco dance classes happen which is cool to watch/ join in. Rooms are clean and spacious - easy to meet many people from many places (as hostels are about). Decent showers and there's a handy Lidl nearby with 0.60cent litre beers (they taste alright too!)

Firstly, massive shout out to Enver on reception - this dude is one of the nicest guys have met travelling, and he is a great ambassador for this hostel! The breakfast is free and nice, big rooms with bunk beds galore but I was lucky enough to have awesome people staying in my room too, whom I intend to remain in close contact with. Located within walking distance of the Blue Mosque and Palace (main historical centre of istanbul) - enjoyed staying here for sure.

From the moment I stepped foot into the cute, cosy cafe that sits in front of the actual hostel building, I knew I was going to like this place - Vicky is simply one of the nicest people I have ever met (she is perfect for hostel running!). She greeted with open arms and a welcoming smile, not only taking the time to introduce me to the place/ settle me in but also to Thessaloniki itself - giving me two very handy guides. Athena and Sophia are awesome too. Beds are comfy and place is very clean

Athenstyle, Athens, Greece

2nd May 2014

One of the best hostels to stay in in Athens, for sure - well positioned to access the main attractions like the Acropolis. Staff that talked to were nice and willing to help guide around and about town. One of best features is without doubt the top floor rooftop bar overlooking the acropolis etc. (especially at night). Small and cosy inside part and more open outside area means the bar is suitable for all weather.

There are very few places and times you'll return from a holiday with the hostel owner as a good friend. Roy, the owner is one of the nicest and best guys you could wish to meet on a holiday - never mind owning the accommodation in which you stay! This cosy and comfortable hostel is beautiful, with a hammock and outdoor bed in the backyard and a roof terrace with a canopy. Roy has even genius-ly made use of the orange tree that grows out back (hence the hostel name) and made this place the best

Equity Point was perfect for our trip to Lisbon. The hostel is located up a hilly side alley, not far from Bairro Alto and the main squares of the city. The staff (and we found Portuguese people in general too) were extremely sociable, friendly and helpful - giving us recommendations and tips. The small garden terrace and front balcony area were really nice for chilling, having a beer and mixing with the other hostel stayers/ travellers. Loved it here, would definitely stay again!
