Still my favorite place to stay in Bangkok. Recent renovations are really excellent. Highly recommend!

Definitely the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff were friendly and helpful, the facilities were spotless, the location is great. I highly reccomend it. My friend and I stayed for 7 nights and we loved every minute!

MEININGER Brussels City Center, Brussels, Belgium

This is the weirdest place I've ever stayed. Not the worst but the weirdest, and not in a good way. The dorm rooms house ten people and have one bathroom, if you need to use the bathroom when it's occupied you have to go all the way downstairs to the only public bathroom, which only has two toilets in it for the like 1000 people staying there. you cant have the main light in the room off and have your personal bed light on at the same time. And it was loud as hell. I would NEVER stay there again

Nothing special, but the location is great. The room was clean and comfortable. It was too expensive for what you get, but cheap for Venice. I'd stay there again.

The hostel is nice and the staff were awesome, but the facilities could use some help. The shower was so clogged that you were left standing in 5 inches of water after just a couple of minutes and the bathrooms were frequently out of toilet paper. The room was ok. The wifi worked great. It would suck if that elevator was out of service though!

Stray Cat Hostel, Istanbul, Turkey

This place was fine (as long as you don't mind cats) but it was really really hot in the room and had no fan, and you can't open the windows because of the ultra conservative neighbors who can see in the room. The wifi was spotty at best. The staff was super nice and very helpful. I loved those kittens, too!

6th Aug 2013

This is the worst place I have stayed in years of visiting Thailand. The location is absolutely horrible, the hostel is gross. There's standing water all the time in the bathrooms, bugs in the showers, no toilet paper most of the time. The linens on the beds are threadbare at best. Really there is absolutely no reason for anyone to stay here. Spend the extra couple bucks and stay somewhere better, you'll be happy you did.

This is a perfectly tiny little Hong Kong hotel. It's clean and the staff is super nice. The only problem we had is that my boyfriend is tall (6'2") and didn't fit in the bed. Waiting for the elevator kinds sucks too, but it's to be expected in Hong Kong.

Fun Sam's Bed and Breakfast, Yangshuo, China

2nd Aug 2013

Staying at Fun Sam's was one of the highlights of our trip tp China. Not only is Sam fun, but he's nice and incredibly helpful. Our room was clean, with a nice bathroom and speedy wi-fi. Sam is also a beast on the basketball court and he'll take you to play with his friends on the local court! I highly reccomend a stay with Sam and his family! Must mention Betty, his helper. She was such a dream. She even came to the bus station and stayed with until the bus left. That's great customer service!

Definitely the best hostel we stayed at during our entire China trip. The staff is wonderfully helpful and the hostel is located right in between the train and bus stations and the sights in town. The food they serve is actually good, too.

There are a lot of rooms here, so there are tons of people there all the time. The bathrooms and showers aren't cleaned often enough for a place that has so many people. The bathrooms smelled all the time and the showers were always gross and slimy. A couple of the staff were really nice and helpful, but mostly it just seemed like they couldn't care less if you were there or not. Our room was riddled with bedbugs and other bugs, too. We left with bites all over both of us.

Walking up and down the alley to get to the hostel was incredibly irritating every time. Too many people taking too many photos and people actually trying to drive down it. That reason alone would keep me from staying there again. The hostel itself was nice, though. I just hated that walk to it.

16th Jun 2013

Decent hostel, but the bathroom situation is horrible. Only 3 toilets and 3 showers for lots of people. There was always a wait for both of them. The showers are in the kitchen and it was really weird showering where people were cooking their dinner. The staff was nice enough but there were always people sort of loitering around who might have been employees but weren't really working. It was weird. I wouldn't stay there again.
