ArkaBarka is an idyllic place to relax, on the water with a cup of coffee watching the ducks go by, yet still close enough to be in the centre of town within 20 minutes. Staff were friendly and helpful, and very accommodating. Facilities are basic, but enough for simple houseboat living. I would definitely stay here again.
A unique experience! The idea of staying at a renovated prison doesn't sound like the most enticing one, but this place is simply one of the best hostels that I have stayed at. Great location, clean and comfortable rooms, hot showers, super-friendly and helpful staff, and a bar / cafe / restaurant. I would definitely stay here again.
The listing here also says check-in from 10am, but this is incorrect, and should be updated, as I when I first arrived, I was told that I had to come back at 1pm. I came back later, and they had given my booking to somebody else! That aside, staff were friendly and helpful, and offered me a private dorm instead, which was okay. Also, maybe I was here on a quiet weekend, but it wasn't the most socially active of hostels.
Friendly staff, social vibe, excellent location! I would happily stay here again.
Cheap(ish) and cheerful, Sisombath may not be the fanciest of hostels, and it is located a little way out of the main areas in LP, but it suited my needs, and the inclusion of breakfast was also a nice touch. Staff were friendly, though sometimes needed a bit of patience with communication (that doesn't bother me, but I know other people find it frustrating - if this is you, then maybe you should try learning to speak Lao! ;) ). The beds were a little on the harder side, but it was clean.
My backpacking days are mostly far behind me, but with my recent trip to Singapore, I wanted to stay somewhere central that was still affordable - which meant getting a hotel was out of the question! Five Stones is one of the nicer hostels that I've stayed in. Comfortable bunks, hot showers, decent wifi, free laundry (pay for soap), lockers (with locks on them!), 24 hour access, and plenty of public transport options. Staff were super friendly and helpful too! Would definitely stay here again
Friendly staff and atmosphere, and great location - close to shops and restaurants.

A cheap and cheerful hostel with plenty of character. It was also nice to have cable TV and a nice big bed if I wanted to retreat from the busy-ness outside. It's an old building, so there were the usual smells that come with that, but it generally felt clean and comfortable.
Staying at Lub d Silom was easy - staff were available to help me when I arrived, and within 5 minutes I had my keys and bed, ready to go and explore the city. The air con was maybe a little too cold in the dorms, but I imagine that these things are difficult to get right, and the place was clean and fun.
Excellent budget option for staying in Adelaide. Yes, it's a hostel with a bar in it, and as such you can expect a younger backpacker crowd, and the kind of atmosphere that goes with it. So, if you can't handle that, then don't bother. That aside, I had no trouble getting in and out, and found the place to meet all of my basic needs. Furthermore, it was a nice quiet location that was still close to Rundle St. And staff were super-friendly and always happy to help out there they could.
Very charming and comfortable place, close to everything in Brisbane. Would definitely stay there again.
Very comfortable stay. Not too far from Asakusa Station, about 10 minutes walk. Staff were friendly. If I had any criticisms, it's a tad on the small side, but perfect for a place to sleep and store your stuff.
Was initially put out because the location had been changed without informing me, and I was quite angry about this. However, now I feel bad even mentioning this, as the service, location, and atmosphere of the place were fantastic. Located on Nan Luogu Xiang, close to several bus routes and the airport express, it couldn't have been more convenient. Free wifi, and a beautiful rooftop garden. Lovely hot showers, and lockers in the dorms. I had an extremely comfortable stay.
Was a little hard to find the first time (they need to provide a better map!) but once I got there, I was happy. Staff was friendly and keen to give helpful advice. Egg, toast and filter coffee for breakfast was an added bonus, as were the soap, shampoo, towel and toothpaste. And a good location for seeing all the action in Hongdae. My only criticism was that the dorm felt a little cramped. However, if you're after good value for money and a comfortable bed to crash in, then this is the place!
Very comfortable stay, and walking distance from Hakata station. Very friendly and helpful staff.
One of my favourite hostels. It's right next to the ferry to Miyajima, and there are always friendly internationals to chat to and have a couple of drinks with at the end of the day. Don't let the big dorms put you off - it was just like being at school camp all over again. And the staff are very friendly and keep to help.
Fantastic budget accommodation with character. The beds in the dorm were comfortable and private, which is more than I could ask for, and the location was perfect for what I needed. Staff were friendly, and the place just generally had a nice vibe. I'll definitely be staying again.
