Camping Rialto

Venice, Italy
77%

Towel 2 euros, locker 2 euros, internet 2euros/day. Internet connection slow ++++ & only works near office, tables there to eat your food. Water in showers not always hot. Cabins tiny with no table, shelf or hooks so all towels, clothes etc have to go on the floor. Tents have even less space. Staff friendly & helpful. Pizza very good. A few items in shop to buy. Location great, bus to & from Venice stops right outside camp every 15 minutes (2.60 euro return). Bus also goes to airport, 5 euros.

Old Town Accommodation

Sarajevo, Bosnia And Herzegovina
100%

This is one of the most welcoming hostels you could ever come across. Jamal & his mother cannot do enough for you. They are so kind, helpful & generous. Jamal picked us up from the airport & didn't even want any money for it (but we gave him some as it would be unfair not to). His Mum even did our washing for us. The pace is spotless , very spacious with a small kitchen attached & there are even DVD's to watch if you want to chill out.

Robinson Sunset House

Ohrid, Macedonia
63%

This was by far the most expensive accommodation we had in Macedonia. It is located at the southern end of the village called Lagadin which is a 15 minute drive from Ohrid. Although there are a lot of accommodation options in the village it did not appear to offer anything much in the way of restaurants which unless you have a car, it makes it difficult to get breakfast & dinner. The owners are very friendly & offer tea & coffee. We couldn't get an internet connection in our room.

Liberty Guest House

Luang Prabang, Laos

This hostel had more of the Vietnamese entrepreneurial feel to it. The owner likes you to book everything through him. We were not impressed when we rebooked the same room to come back to the hostel after travelling north. We paid a $3 deposit & when we arrived back our reservation was cancelled. Fortunately there was a cancellation & we could have a room. When we left, he asked us to give a 100% review on Hostelworld. The hostel is about a 9 minute walk from the centre of town.

We highly recommend this hostel. The staff were just so polite, helpful & obliging. Their level of english was excellent and there was heaps of info about the surrounding area and mini tours to do from Chengdu to Tibet, Juizhaigou National Park etc. The rooms were spotless and the mattresses soft (a huge bonus for China). Wireless internet, common room, food, drinks all good.

This hostel is fantastically placed in the heart of the "old town". James, the Canadian born Spaniard manager is so welcoming and even takes you on a mini tour of the area to orientate you.
