A&O Karlsruhe Hauptbahnhof

Karlsruhe, Germany

Can't say anything good or bad in particular. A bit run down, but not bad. Staff was friendly and breakfast ok. Don't expect anything out of the ordinary and you're fine.

The 4You Hostel Munich

Munich, Germany

Was unimpressed with the hostel. Location is great and I guess you get what you pay for but everything is somewhat old. Also not a very interesting atmosphere.

Sam Sen Sam

Bangkok, Thailand

It's a nice guest house, really quiet but still in walking distance to the khao san road. Breakfast could have been a bit more, but it's included so whatever. Free Wifi. Would stay there again.

MNL Boutique Hostel

Manila, Philippines

Fantastic hostel - it's as if you step from the hot and chaotic Manila into a different world. Comfortable, airconditioned, safe, great staff, free Wifi and beakfast, comfortable beds. Would definitely stay there again.

Oaklands Lodge

Auckland, New Zealand

Very nice place to stay near Mount Eden. Very friendly staff, great kitchen and relaxing living room. Wifi basically isn't free but we recieved free voucher on check-in which were sufficient. Overall a pleasant stay.

Jailhouse Accommodation Christchurch

Christchurch, New Zealand

Very cool place to stay! Sleeping in a cell is definitely something. Kitchen was superb - clean and lots of stuff provided. You could lend movies for free and everything was very clean. Staff was nice and helpful.

The Flying Fox

Blue Mountains, Australia

Flying Fox is really special and one of the best hostels I ever visited. Ross is very helpful and will point you to great stuff to do in the Blue Mountains plus there's free Wifi and breakfast, also occasional specials like BBQ and campires in the evening. The only downside is that Ross seems to run the place more or less by himself and if he is not there and you still have to pay it's hard to check out. If you have to leave on time pay the day before!

Big Hostel

Sydney, Australia

This hostel was nice but not outstanding. Location is good, free breakfast a plus and free wifi ok (works only downstairs and hard to log in during peak hours). Staff was nice and helpful. As others said it's hard to get to know other people, everyone is just using the internet downstairs. Only three toilets and three showers, all in the same room, on our floor (plus they were somewhat dirty). Very large lockers in the room.

Byron Beach Resort

Byron Bay, Australia

Really liked this hostel, had a very relaxed feeling (perhaps also because of Byron Bay itself). Only 2 minutes to the beach (Belongil, not the main one though you can easily walk there, too). They have a free shuttle service into town. Kitchen was big, common room comfortable. Security a bit too good - was hard to open our door! There are some lockers in front of the rooms but not many and none in the rooms. Wifi expensive. Will stay there again if I return to Byron! (And try out the Broga ;)

Aussie Way Hostel

Brisbane, Australia

There is nothing bad to say about this hostel. Everything was fine, though not outstanding. Kitchen was a bit small but OK. There were lockers in the rooms and free coffee, Wifi is extra. Would definitely stay there again.

Dolphins Beach House

Noosa, Australia

Liked the hostel. Helpful staff, very relaxed feeling. Every two rooms seem to share a kitchen/living room/bathroom. Rooms were somewhat small. Really short walk to the beach but somewhat outside the center but they offer a free shuttle bus. Sadly no lockers in the room, only a small safe at reception.

Nomads Airlie Beach

Airlie Beach, Australia

This hostel is a mixed bag. The dorm rooms are spacious and air conditioned, have 2 showers and a toilet (though you can hear almost anything from in there). Rooms were pretty clean. Now to the downsides: staff ranged from pretty unhelpful to downright rude, if you don't like people don't work at the reception. The hostel is probably too large, we got food stolen from the fridge and it seems to be common. You have to pay everything extra like lockers, wifi, 20$ deposit for cutlery.


Definitely can recommend Caravellas. They upgraded us from dorms to a private room since we're a couple. Very friendly staff, especially the new girl - let's hope she stays that way. Travel desk is also helpful. They have a pool and are very close to the esplanade. Room and bathroom were clean. All in all enjoyed my stay!

Backpackers HQ

Sydney, Australia

Really helpful staff, great location, nice atmosphere, clean. Really enjoyed my stay there, can't say that it was loud, could sleep very well. The ventilators were really ok, air condition would of course be nicer plus the wifi can be a bit unstable, but since it's free that's just nitpicking. Definitely would stay there again.

Kyoto Hana Hostel

Kyoto, Japan

Had a fantastic time there. Would stay there again anytime. Super friendly and helpful staff, clean, comfortable and you get to meet nice people!
