Soul Kitchen

St Petersburg, Russia

When I first saw the 99% rating, I was skeptical. But now I know it's absolutely spot on. This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It is in a central location in a renovated building just steps from St. Issac's. The owners are travelers and have thought of everything - the details are incredible, down to power outlets inside the lockers so you can charge while you're away. This hostel has everything you could possibly need - and a fantastic staff as well. Definitely deserves 99%.

The Backpack Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa

One of the best hostels I've stayed in! The location is perfect - you can walk to all the bars on Long Street in just 5 minutes. The hostel is gorgeous - the rooms are clean and have character. The beds are comfy and the showers are great. The cafe/bar serves drinks and food and has great WiFi. The best part is the staff. They go out of their way to book everything for you. They recommend great restaurants and book all your activities. A fantastic place and highly recommended.

Olga's Italian Corner

Livingstone, Zambia

I stayed for one week at Olga's and had a wonderful experience. The staff are amazing and will help you with anything you need. The location is perfect - just across the street you can find a supermarket, ATM, and restaurants. The staff will help you organize any tours or trips you would like (I recommend the Chobe day-trip). The restaurant serves great food (breakfast included) and has good WiFi. The room was immaculate and modern with a lovely shower. Highly recommended.

BackHome Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

BackHome is a beautiful hostel in a great location in Kuala Lumpur. It is a very modern hostel with privacy bunk beds that don't shake, lots of personal storage, huge lockers, an air-conditioned TV room, powerful WiFi, fantastic staff, an attached cafe with delicious food, free breakfast, free maps, great showers with hot water, and a great atmosphere. I really enjoyed my stay at BackHome.


This is a fantastic hostel in the heart of Georgetown. The staff are fantastic and will help you with anything you need. The hostel is spotless and it has been redesigned gorgeously. The security is great - keycard access to the hostel and huge lockers in the dorms. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are modern and clean, the wifi is great, and the bar serves delicious food. Highly recommended.

Nap Hostel Pecs

Pecs, Hungary

This is a lovely hostel located in the center of Pecs. It's the perfect location on the pedestrian street and it's easy to walk everywhere from the hostel. The walk from the train station took me about 10 minutes. The bar downstairs is the "common room" where travelers hang out and meet. The hostel is clean and the staff are fantastic. Plus the 6-bed dorm has a balcony and no bunks - it's the best room!

The Dreamer Hostel

Santa Marta, Colombia

The staff at The Dreamer is the best you can find. They are friendly and helpful and will take very good care of you. You could not ask for better staff and they really make the hostel amazing. The pool is great, the rooms are clean, the food is tasty and there is a pool-side bar. It's a great place to stay.

Casa de la Chicheria

Cartagena, Colombia

Casa de la Chicheria is a great place to stay as it is clean and safe. I was there for 2 weeks and it felt like home. Miriam and Angel are wonderful and will help with anything you need. The dorm room has bunk beds 3-high, but not to worry - there is plenty of space and the beds are comfy. Plus, the dorm has aircon every night which is necessary in Cartagena.

Paprika Hostel

Budapest, Hungary

Paprika Hostel is fantastic. Andi, Andy (Paddy) and Mik are excellent hosts that make you feel right at home. They give you all the information you need about the city and they organize great nights out to the best bars and clubs (every night!) The hostel is easy to reach from anywhere in the city, it's clean, comfortable and very friendly. I would highly recommend it to any of my friends traveling to Budapest.
