I really liked this hostel and even extended my stay. The internet is fast and it's in a great location. Minook at reception was incredibly helpful! Thank you Kimchi hostel!
I have travelled the world, and this is one of the worst hostels i've ever stayed in. The staff were very unfriendly, they were smoking when they were making breakfast and the manager at reception actually threatened me. The place was old , locks not working etc. And there was no hot water for the first day of my trip, even though it was freezing outside. It was also very dirty with stained sheets. I would not recommend this hostel to anybody and for the price (11euro) there are much better!
Very quiet and in a great location. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was good!
Excellent price considering NY. Breakfast was really good and included. I met lots of nice people and the staff were all helpful except for the Uruguayan girl. Thanks NYC hostel
Two blocks from the beach. Small hostel with a great atmosphere and fun staff (thanks Lewis). Fast wifi and breakfast is awesome (ham, potato, onion etc omelette with bread, retried beans and coffee). All for 120 pesos! Stay here!!!
Breakfast, staff, wifi and location were all very good.
This is a fantastic hostel. Warm and good atmosphere etc. the only negative is, the male staff are really only concerned about the female guests... It does get a little annoying.. Great hostel though.
The staff are awesome! They lost my clothes and then paid for them. Good wifi (but not in the 3rd floor). Breakfast also is great.
Great location, friendly staff, clean, fast internet and really hot water... Stay here!!!
Not bad. Clean, decent wifi, friendly staff and good location. Only one bathroom between 30 people though and no lockers.
This is cheap, with an okay breakfast and internet. Location is amazing! Staff are poor as you don't really know who works there.
Excellent location.. Hot water usually.. Lockers and decent breakfast. The negatives... Not that clean and there are no staff.
This hostel has nice staff, quick internet and a good location in the lapa area, next To the steps. Breakfast is good and it is very safe, as lockers are supplied. There are a lot of 'long termers' living here, which means, it can be hard to integrate with them though. Overall. It's a good place.
This is a nice hostel with a good ambiance. Location is great, wifi good and staff friendly (although some don't really speak English)... But, i would stay here again.
I booked for two nights, but stayed for 8. The staff are beyond friendly and helpful. The wifi is the fastest I've found in South America, great for uploading fb photos at last! Free breakfast is basic, but free. Very clean and free lockers. Very peaceful hostel. The only negatives are low water pressure and there isn't a tv. If recommend this hostel to anyone.
There are lockers available on the first floor. Free wifi (which generally works) and free pancakes 24/7. The staff are helpful too. This is not a party hostel as some other reviews misleadingly say. However, if you want to party, the space on the ground floor is available. I met some good people here, don't o on he trips the hostel offers. You can do it cheaper yourself (and you won't have to listen tothe drivers view on EvErYThInG)...
Lockers available in rooms. Good wifi and good selection of tv to watch if you're hungover. Location is not good at all, however the hostel arranges activities to do nightly. Staff are well organised and polite, however as with all hostels that have a core of "longtermers", they are not welcoming. Free pancakes too. Vibe is odd, although you can meet some people.
This is a great hostel that has an atmosphere suited to all types of travellers. The manager is very helpful also. Hilo is great place to base yourself whilst on the Big Island.
Only a short walk from the beach with free wifi and breakfast. Nice social area, that can get slightly noisy at times. Lockers are included also, though you need to buy a very big padlock. Stay here.
Free wifi for 30 minutes a day and a decent location. The rooms were well maintained and I met some nice people.
The location is excellent and the staff are friendly. However, as a traveller, rarely have I felt as unwelcome as I did at this hostel. It has mostly long term workers, who have no interest in meeting new people. Also, it is very small and crowded. I think there are better options.
This hostel is great place to meet people. The atmosphere is a plus and there's free wifi.
A good enough place to stay for a night or two with a well appointed kitchen. TV room and comfortable enough dorms. The place is pretty dated but at only $20 you can probably look past that.
A homely offering serving up a lot of added extras not often found at hostels in NZ. Dorms are comfortable if a little cramped, but the kitchen and social areas are clean and well used. Good place to meet people over the free breakfasts or free evening soup sessions. Free wifi is also great. The hostel is located in the town just a pleasant stroll from the glacier.
Centrally located and clean, however lacked a communal atmosphere and the kitchen was awful. There are better options than Base.
This is a decent place. It's clean and the staff are very helpful. It's a 30-40 minute walk from downtown and it lacks any form of atmosphere.
Free wifi and free breakfast. The staff are really helpful as well. If you are looking for budget accommodation, I'd recommend this place for sure.
This is a decent place in a good location, with free wifi on the ground floor. It is a party hostel though.
This is a really good hostel and the staff are very nice.. There's a dvd room and free wifi on the ground floor. The hostel is noisy into the evening. It is definitely a party hostel for 18-25 year olds. It depends what you want.
This feels like a hostel. Good location and friendly staff. No lockers and you have to pay for wifi.
This hostel has a homely feel and it's easy to meet people. The staff are really nice, especially Sarah (the Scottish girl) who helped us out. There aren't lockers in the rooms though.
The staff, location, cleanliness and security are excellent. To be honest, it depends what you are looking for. This hostel is quite big and had lots of drunk teenagers. I prefer smaller hostels that have a traveller atmosphere. It was good here regardless.
It is in a good location. THE lady was nice, but couldn't speak any English. It's not far from downtown, which is convenient. The male dormitory smells really bad and it's not clean at all. It was okay here, but I wouldn't stay here again.
Really nice hostel. Only a 10 minute walk from the sakurajima port. I'd recommend this place.
One of my favourite hostels. I always stay here when I'm in KL.
Staff helpful and great breakfast. Could be cleaner and location... Meh. Good hostel to stay at if passing through.
Staff were informative. Beds were comfortable and great privacy.
Staff were knowledgable and friendly. Good breakfast for free. Clean. Stay here
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Place is clean and in a great location! Stay here!
This is a very good hostel in the best location TST. The owners are very nice, it is very clean and easy to find. It is not a place to meet people though. I've stayed at the dragon hostel also and this one is muuuuuuuch better!
This hostel is okay. It is clean and in a good location, although it is terribly difficult to find. The staff seem nice although there is very little English. Look for a hostel in TST is my advice

I had an excellent time in this hostel and I would definitely stay there again. The location is brilliant, and the owner Mr Choi is a really good dude. On a negative side, there are only two bathrooms for the entire hostel though.
Very nice hostel in a good location. The owner is not always around though.
This is a nice hostel. The owner TC speaks perfect English and is really helpful. The hostel has a bar with cheap beer on site. Maybe a 5 min walk from the subway. We had a good time in Kaohsiung.
Everything about this hostel is amazing!! The staff are awesome, it's in a great location, it's clean and secure. Me and my friends spent 5 nights here and had a very good time. Highly recommended....
The Red Carabao is a cool place to stay in Manila and I would definitely recommend it. The owner and all the staff are very helpful. We had no problems with anything. The location is a little way from the bars if that's what you're looking for though :(. But, on the latter thought, taxi's are cheap here.
This is a nice hostel with plenty of character. It is different than most hostels you will stay in. probably worth a visit just for that.
Awesome atmosphere, would totally recommend. Thanks.
This is a very nice hostel in a very nice location. The staff are extremely helpful.
