Kismet Dao Hostel

Brasov, Romania

Words cannot explain how much I loved my stay at Kismet Dao!! Originally booked for 3 nights and ended up staying for 19!! The staff are amazing, it's impeccably clean, free breakfast is awesome, large bright dorms and a movie/disco room!! The place has such a positive homely vibe and I loved the puppy cuddles from the adorable Zara! Brasov and Kismet were the perfect place to base myself and do day trips exploring the area from there! Miss it already and will most definitely be back!! :)

Ahoy! Hostel

Prague, Czech Republic

A nice hostel, in a good location. Great staff who are helpful with hints and tips about the city. Rooms are very spacious and lockers are helpful! Kitchen is fully equipped complete with a jar of vegemite in the free cupboard! Perfect for a long term Aussie traveller!! :) Not a huge party hostel but a great place to base yourself in Prague and then just do the pub crawl for party times!!

Far Out Beach Club

Ios, Greece

Far Out is an institution in Ios and it lived up to its reputation. There is the beach club side and the camping side. It is camping so don't expect anything glamorous but it's still good facilities. The pool areas are always lively and the parties are crazy!! Would do it all over again for sure! :)


Athens, Greece

Great hostel in a fabulous location with a view of the acropolis from my room and the cool rooftop bar! Close to Monasaraki Square and metro which is a hub of Athens! The staff are friendly and helpful! The free walking tour is a must. Definitely recommend.

Bazar Hostel

Budapest, Hungary

Good hostel, just unfortunately quiet whilst I was there. The staff are really lovely and willing to help with tips about Budapest. The location in the Jewish quarter is great. Rooms were nice with storage lockers and the bathrooms were always clean. Common area is really funky and the kitchen is well equipped. Would def recommend staying here but it's not a party hostel so if that's what you're looking for look elsewhere!

Old Town Zagreb

Zagreb, Croatia

Cute small hostel in a good location. Ana the receptionist is really lovely and seems to be constantly cleaning which can only be a good thing! The kitchen is reasonably well equipped too which is great! Not a party hostel if that's what you're looking for, but a great place to stay for a few days exploring Zagreb!

Split Guesthouse & Hostel

Split, Croatia

Had an awesome stay at Split Guesthouse & Hostel! Josko is everything all the other reviews say he is, a larger than life character who makes the place a home! He treats you like a friend the minute you walk in and provides great hints and tips for making the most of your time in Split! The rooms were neat and clean, the kitchen and bathroom also! Would have loved to stay longer but already had my next moves booked, won't hesitate to return though! :)


Dubrovnik, Croatia

Nice large room with a partial view of the harbour. Pick up from the bus station was greatly appreciated as the house is located on a hill (as is pretty much all of dubrovnik). The room and bathroom were nice and clean. There's a small refrigerator and plates, bowls and cutlery for use. Nina, her husband and daughter in law are all lovely and accommodating of any request. Laundry service is available. The location is a little out of old town but the walk in isn't too hard! Good place overall!

Arch-Ist Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

Arch-Ist Hostel is a fantastic place to stay! Awesome location and fantastic staff who were more than willing to help and give hints and tips - the girls sent us to a delicious waffle place on the Asian side!! The rooms were nice and both them and the ensuite were clean. Aircon in the room was helpful! Close to Taxsim Square and also within walking distance to transport and Gallata Tower area. Common area isn't huge but kitchen is helpful and well equipped. Would definitely recommend!


Good place to stay for its closeness to the airport. Arranged pick up and drop off through the hotel also which was helpful. Room and bathroom were clean and comfortable with good air con. Can also recommend the room service meals! Didn't venture out so not sure what's around the hotel at all. Would stay again.

Sachal Mir's

Negombo, Sri Lanka

Great place to stay close to the beach and shopping strip. Staff are happy to answer any questions. Wifi is in the main section of the hostel so try and get a room there! They also have laundry facilities available which is very helpful! Overall I'd recommend Sachal Mir's as a great hostel option in Negombo!! :)
