Jordan Tower Hostel, Amman, Jordan

15th Mar 2016

Great location, great breakfast, helpful staff. Wifi on the common room only, but it's a strong connection. The one drawback was the washrooms (4th floor at least). The toilets didn't flush well - always left something behind. One toilet didn't have a seat cover so the seat got wet after a shower, and the shower head leaked out the bottom so very little water made it into my head. It was warm though. Overall, decent, but didn't live up to the high ratings.

Fantastic place. Beautiful room, great views from the rooftop, located right in the medina, friendly staff, strong wifi, hot showers, and a delicious breakfast... everything I could want in a hostel.

HI-Maligne Canyon, Jasper, Canada

11th Aug 2014

Great budget place to stay in very expensive Jasper. No showers, no plumbing, but warm beds. I found the atmosphere wasn't as fun as a more conventional hostel -- not a great place to meet people or learn about what to do in the area. Not bad, just different than what I usually think of a hostel experience.

Stayed here the night before we drove the Icefields Parkway. Price is great for the location. Accommodation is basic as expected, but very clean. Only drawback was the bunk I slept in was just barely too short for me. I'm 5'10", average height, so most guys will be sleeping with bend legs.

Amazing location in Waikiki. Only drawback is the loud garbage truck that comes by every morning at 7:30am.

The Attic Backpackers, Auckland, New Zealand

9th Apr 2014

We found it a pleasant place to stay at the end of our month-long campervan trip around NZ. The highlight is that it's right in the middle of downtown, near lots of restaurants, and walking distance to most of the not terribly many things to do in Auckland. Highly recommend getting out and seeing the rest of NZ too.

Thanks for your feedback, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We think Auckland is often overlooked by travellers as just a stop through, however there are some really cool activities to do here- Climb volcanoes, visit wine soaked Waiheke Island with stunning beaches and walking, cosmopolitan harbour dining and bars, haven shopping suburbs like Ponsonby and a great Art Gallery and museum. :-) We hope you will visit us again next time! Cheers-The Attic Team

Friendly staff. Excellent location if you're interested in seeing the post-quake city or museum. Bit of a walk to find a budget friendly place to eat though.

Jackaroo Hostel Sydney, Sydney, Australia

8th Mar 2014

A good hostel, not quite great. Location is convenient, directly above the King's cross metro. We had a street facing room and it was noisy every night of the week. Glad we had earplugs. Wifi is excellent during the day, but grinds to a halt in the evenings with everyone on it. We had a private room, but at 10am every morning housekeeping would knock on the door and immediately come in, regardless if we asked them not to. Then again to vacuum, then again to empty the bin.

Hi Michael, thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the convenient location of the hostel. Sorry to hear that it was too noisy for you. We would have been happy to try and accommodate you at the back of the hostel if we had known. We also strive to keep the entire hostel as clean as possible and therefore daily cleaning of all the rooms is necessary. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels and hope to see you next time your in Sydney.

Port Campbell Hostel, Port Campbell, Australia

Clean and comfortable place in a great location. The toilets (stalls) are located in the hallways, which is a little odd. Very close to the 12 Apostles and Port Campbell is a pretty little town. It's a perfect place for a stopover on a Great Ocean Roadtrip.

Rucksack Inn @ HongKong Street, Singapore, Singapore

4th Feb 2014

Rucksack Inn is maybe the cleanest and most comfortable hostel I've stayed in. Location is hard to beat. Staff is very helpful. The atmosphere was average. It was pretty quiet when we were there -- didn't have the meet new people vibe that some places excel at. Overall one of the best hostels I've stayed at.

Great location and the staff was very helpful. At check in she gave us a full run down on the local sites with specific directions and tips. The highlight of City Walls is the atmosphere of the traditional Chinese hutong. We arrived after dark and had a bit of a difficult time finding it because we couldn't see the signs. But a local noticed us looking lost and pointed us in the right direction.

1st Sep 2013

Great location, walkable to both Cabot Tower and George St. House 18 was very well kept, inside and out. This is the nicest Canadian hostel we've stayed in. I also highly recommend the city tour they offer. In 4 hours we saw most of the city, including Cape Spear, and Denis had stories for every question.

Fun place to stay - spacious rooms, great atmosphere, walking distance to Metro. Would like to see it again when the renos are complete. Free Wifi, and there is a computer available, but I wouldn't rely on it, it's quite slow.

Decent place overall. Breakfast wasn't good - stale buns and warm milk. I watched a bed being made.. the bottom sheet and blanket weren't changed, only the one sheet. So you have a clean sheet on one side and used on the other. We didn't know we had to change rooms one night and returned to find our stuff had been moved. They were very good with regards to collecting all our stuff -- nothing was missing. But when I asked the front desk what was going on he was very rude.

Very nice facilities and friendly staff for the most part. We've stayed at a lot of places that have free breakfast and they encourage you to take something for lunch as well. Here we paid for breakfast and were scolded for doing this. Not quite the same environment that we have come to expect from a hostel.

This is a hotel rather than a hostel. Very helpful staff and a clean facilities. Breakfast was great - croissants and yogurt along with the usual cereal, etc.. One small drawback is no elevator. It is quite a climb up to the 4th floor.

It's an old hostel but very clean. Not as new and nice as some others but the staff and the atmospheare make it exceptional. We loved the fireplace and the movie nights, as well as 2 for 1 happy hour in the bar downstairs.
