Cowgate Tourist Hostel

Edinburgh, Scotland

Really friendly staff and hostel is in a great location near bars and clubs. Dorms are spacious and clean, kitchen is big. No lockers in rooms but security doors and keys are given to room. Would be good to have a common area, which I think they have just introduced as an outdoor courtyard. Overall really enjoyed our stay here!

Angels Guesthouse

London, England

**DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!** There was no record of our booking when we arrived. The mother and son that work/stay there managed to get us a room anyway but told us we would have to move the following night. The next day I was told we had to leave the room for the day due to inspection. At 9pm that night, we were told we had to move to another guesthouse in Waterloo immediately because they had to paint the room, even though there was an "inspection" the next day. Save time and stress, do not stay

West Two London

London, England

Not much to say about this place. No security aside from a lock on the door. Poor wi-fi. Bathrooms dirty and staff unhelpful. Common areas were just discusting, especially when we found a homeless man in the tv room. Not joking about that either. Overall very disappointed and would not recommend this place to anyone.

Hostal del Fraile

Valladolid, Mexico

Great hostel in a really good location (close to bus stop and main square) and on a really nice street. Nice common area with a pool table. We stayed in a private room which was simple but comfortable. No air-conditioning but luckily it was cooler when we were there. No wi-fi reception in the room. Breakfast was simple bread and cereal. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Valladolid.

Hostal Chalupa

Tulum, Mexico

Hostel is in good location near the town, beach and ruins. The hostel has a kitchen and a pool but seems to lack atmosphere, may have been because we were there when it was raining. One staff member who checked us in was really friendly and helpful but cannot say the same for the other staff. The private room was huge with two double beds. However, the bathroom always had a bad smell coming from the drain. Air conditioning in the room but only allowed at night. Overall pretty average for price.

Hotel Marcianito

Isla Mujeres, Mexico

Rooms are clean, comfortable and simple. No air conditioning but there was a fan. Hotel is in good location. Overall an enjoyable stay.

Alajuela Backpackers

Alajuela, Costa Rica

Nice hostel close to the airport. Free shuttle to the airport is really great. Good food and drink in the rooftop bar. Air-conditioning in the room wasn't great. We just stayed one night as we had an early flight, hostel was perfect for this but probably wouldn't stay longer.

Arenal Backpackers Resort

La Fortuna, Costa Rica

Great hostel! Beautiful grounds with a nice pool, lounges and lots of grass. Restaurant on site with good meals at reasonable prices. Tents were surprisingly spacious and comfortable. Pillows could be better but that's the only downside. Overall we loved our stay here


Great location close to restaurants and bars. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. Good wifi and great breakfast included. Overall thoroughly enjoyed the stay at Le Foyer!

Chill House

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Fantastic hostel with a great vibe. Friendly and helpful staff. Good location to see all parts of Buenos Aires.

Pension Amalur

San Sebastian, Spain

Very comfortable and homely hostel. The host is very friendly and willing to help. He doesn't speak English, but it was easy enough to communicate through hand gestures etc. The rooms are cleaned daily, with fresh towels and beds made. There are computers you can use for free and a nice common room. It is only a small hostel, which made it nice and personable. Location is good, only about 15 minute walk from the old town. Would definately stay here again.

Way Hostel

Madrid, Spain

One of the best hostels I have stayed in throughout Europe. Staff are nice and friendly and willing to help. The rooms are really spacious and comfortable. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm with en suite. There were showers in the room but no toilet, which was the only downside. There was also abit of noise from the street, but nothing major. There is a fantastic kitchen and chill out room with free wi-fi. There are also computers to use for free. All in all a great hostel!

Antares Hostel

Nice, France

This is a cross between a hostel and a hotel. Kitchen facilities were really poor, there was no oven or kitchen. Breakfast costs extra. Staff were really friendly and there is free internet.
