Brisbane City Backpackers

Brisbane, Australia

Bring your own towel or be prepared to buy one for $10. No sign of lockers in the room or elsewhere despite the Hostelworld listing (this one was reason I chose this hostel). Also no secure luggage storage room. Great views of the city and a pool which was great to be able to use in the heat too. On site pub and cafe which can also be very handy. 20 minute walk to both city and West end. Overall a very reasonable stay and fairly good hostel.

The Maze Backpackers

Sydney, Australia

This is the second time I've stayed on a weekend from Newcastle. Great location in the city, especially if you want to party. No lockers in rooms which is a shame and the common lockers provided are super expensive. There is a luggage room though. I will probably stay here again.

AAE Clarion Universal

Orlando, USA

Perfectly located a mile from universal and there is a free shuttle to and from Disney which is very easy to use. The facility itself is nothing glamorous but it is perfectly adequate for the budget traveler. The rooms are clean as are the bathrooms, towels and toiletries are provided and there is a pool to cool off after a big day of walking. There's even a bar in the pool area.

SoBe Hostel & Bar

Miami, USA

5 mins to the beach. Very secure, fun, clean place. 6 person dorms are very cramped if full. Organised Pub crawls every night. Bar on site with a free drink on checkin. Only downside is it's down on 2nd st, so is a few blocks to walk to most places and a short Cab ride to the other end of south beach.

Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback and are happy to hear you enjoyed our hostel as well as our club nights and full bar. Next time ask the front desk about the SoBe Local bus which goes all around South Beach for 25 cents so you don't have to spend money on cabs. Thanks for staying at SoBe Hostel!

Drifter Jack's Hostel

Austin, USA

My wife and I got the private room, which had everything we needed. It is right near the entrance and the common room though so if people are talking loudly you'll hear them easily. Location is reasonable, there are bars and cheap eats down guad st, but you are not really walking distance to downtown or SoCo. Breakfast is very basic but fruit is good. Hostel options in Austin are limited so this is a great pick. If you are going to the airport use the hostel shuttle. Cheap, easy and reliable.

USA Hostels Hollywood

Los Angeles, USA

If you want to stay in the heart of hollywood stay here! right next to hollywood blvd and there is always stuff happening like organised tours, pub crawls and not to mention cheap beers in the bar! Thanks for a great stay


Montreal, Canada

We stayed in the 3 bed private and it was amazing. 3 singles, our own living and cooking space with tv and full kitchen. Free wifi is always a bonus as well and only a 10 minute walk from the metro. Definitely would recommend

Hotel Europa Life

Frankfurt, Germany

Really, really good for a cheap hostel. Only needed something close to the station and this was perfect. Very clean and staff very helpful too.

Urbany Hostel Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

A great hostel. Easy to find and connect in to the city. Very clean and breakfast is really good and included. Good showers and free wi fi in the rooms. Couldn´t have asked for a better place to stay.

Beach Hostel

Split, Croatia

Great hostel, Ladybird is awesome. Good place to meet people as well

PLUS Camping Jolly

Venice, Italy

Hostel is cheap, but then they charge you for everything once you are there. The shuttle to town is 2 euro each and breakfast is 7!!! You also need to book the shuttle early as the morning ones fill up quickly which is a massive pain. Really nice place though, great to relax at, and I got upgraded for free!

Hostel Galla

Milan, Italy

Was very difficult to find, I needed to ask for directions. It's not really near anything either, very out of the city and a bit of a walk to the closest metro station. But it did the job for me as I was just in Milan for a night to see Muse, who were SO good by the way. The owner is lovely though and very helpful.

Lucky Lake Hostel

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Lucky Lake is the best place to be if you want to relax. Everything is included in the price and the staff are ridiculously helpful and friendly. Would recommend it over any other hostel in Amsterdam.

Brussels 2GO4 Quality Hostel

Brussels, Belgium

Pretty good location and free internet, but not only is breakfast not included, it's not even offered. Directions very ambiguous/wrong as well, make sure you do your research on how to get there.

Euro Youth Hostel

Munich, Germany

Bar is a bit loud if your room is close to it but it really wasn't a problem. Great location and staff very helpful


No complaints, staff were great, location great, would definitely stay here again if I went back to Vienna


It was fine. Nothing amazing but it did the job

Isaacs Hostel

Dublin, Ireland

Was very clean and the staff were very helpful. However it is right near a club with annoying music when you're trying to sleep. Didn't have a problem apart from that.
