The Phoenix

Shanghai, China

Nice Hostel, helpful staff, reasonable location - I think April was not the best time to travel by yourself, not many travelers stayed when I was there.


Not a bad place, the fact I didn't get given a room key was a bit odd, meant I was a little uneasy about leaving things in my room. Good staff, must have been quiet time as there weren't many around in hostel. Good spot, plenty to see and do in the viscinity.


Very good Hostel, very good staff, friendly and welcoming. Bar is good with some good deals! Rooms are very tidy, comfortable and the bathrooms are absolute class, best I have seen for a Hosel anywhere with awesome showers for one! Highly recommend this or one of the other branches!

Kaunas Apartments

Kaunas, Lithuania

Stayed in a twin with a mate, was a shame we had to almost sleep with eachother... Great start, they picked us up from bus station which was cool. Were able to answer a few questions about Kaunas, then left to own devices. Nice little apartment, had everything you need, obviously not a massive amount of atmosphere but old town isn't too far away.


Really cool place, loads to do, good atmosphere, with welcome shots! Always good. Good location, relatively close to the best sights and sounds in Riga. Loads of activities on offer and the staff were as helpful as anywhere I have ever stayed in Europe. Highly recommend.


Tartu, Estonia

Cool little place, awesome location, good staff. Not much happening there or in Tartu but was worth a look.

United Backpackers Hostel

Tallinn, Estonia

Nice Hostel, clean, good staff, relatively close to old town but a good 5-10min walk. Was very good but lacked any atmosphere I thought. Walls were a bit thin, could hear a fair bit next door... Showers were the best I have ever had in a Hostel, oddly they are basically in the bar though...


Cool little hostel in Salzburg. Bar and food are cheap with happy hours etc. Helpful staff, bit of a hike into town but not a huge issue really. Would stay there again if in Salzburg again.


Great place, all the Wombats are but this one in particular was awesome. Massive place, breakfast is available and pretty decent, the bar is really cool, met loads of other travelers there, and the bar staff were really nice/helpful, even got a few jagerbombs off the manager which was especially nice of him... The staff at main desk were very helpful, the rooms were nice too, with very nice ensuites. Great hostel!

Patio Hostel

Bratislava, Slovakia

Cool Hostel in a cool city. Thoroughly enjoyed the beer garden and the BBQ on offer, good spot to meet new people and pre-drink before the pub crawl, which I also recommend. Helpful staff, nice rooms also. Good Hostel.

Lybeer Travellers' Hostel

Bruges, Belgium

Stayed here in late 2009, and loads of in roads made, still got a bit going on with facilities still being sorted... It was annoying not have a shower on my level, the stairs are a bit of a pain but that's no a high issue... The extra curricula activities are very good, Kai (US dude) does a great tour/beet tasting session, make sure you get involved, highly entertaining and fun... The pub crawl is good craic too!!

St Christopher's Inn Newquay

Newquay, England

Cracking place, great location, breakfast was good, bar was very good and the views were awesome!!

Hostel Mostel

Sofia, Bulgaria

Not a bad Hostel, helpful staff, shame they are over two sights and I had to stay across the road... The main Hostel was cool, a chilled vibe, good food, which was surprisingly free, and really nice (spaghetti the night I was there), you get breakfast too... Sofia was a pretty cool place, really like it there.

Ostello Bello

Milan, Italy

Best Hostel I have stayed at anywhere, brilliant staff, atmosphere was awesome, cracking bar, with happy hours etc, met so many people here. Would recommend it to anyone travelling to Milan!!

Manena Hostel

Genoa, Italy

Nice little Hostel, in a good location, could do with some more showers though, bit of a queue in the morning!!

Hostel TO

Turin, Italy

Bit pricey considering what you get, could do with a bit of an upgrade, pretty run down, very basic hostel, I am sure that you could do better in Turin...

Generator Hostel Copenhagen

Copenhagen, Denmark

Really good place to stay, the bar area is a highlight, with movies on the big screen, karaoke nights, happy hour etc. Good fun place, and really big with loads of areas to chill out also if you want that.
