Cordial House Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey
86%

Fantastic hostel, we booked a 10 bed but ended up in a 6 bed. Internet worked well downstairs, bit dodgy by the third floor. Has a great sitting area on the first floor. Bad points: Kitchen had limited items to work with (no cups, cutlery). Only one key for each room, you have to ask at reception if any one is in there. Any one could ask for your key though. 2 massive groups checked in whilst we were there (1 uni group

The hostel is an easy walk from Wimbledon tube station. Plenty of pubs around. They don't allow any alcohol at the hostel which was really strange, first time we've seen it. But the facilities are good, they have a kitchen, clean toilets and plenty of showers. For £10 it was very decent, we would stay again!

Hatters on Newton Street

Manchester, England
94%

Great hostel in Manchester. Each floor was dedicated to a famous local musician, from Ian Brown to the Doves to Morrissey and New Order. Just wish they plated these bands rather than the top 20 pop songs in the communal area at night! Free breakfast has a great range, plenty of showers and there's a pool table in the common area. All in all made for a great couple of days. Really liked the idea of the lockers in reception. Would stay again!

Polaroid Siesta Hostel

Granada, Spain
89%

Clean new hostel in Granada. We stayed 3 nights in the 6 bed dorm, and there was 2 empty beds everynight. Clean ensuite, and extra bathroom right outside the door. Well equipped kitchen, with herbs, oil etc all available. Lounge are downstairs looked cool, but was always empty. Staff are friendly and willing to help. We paid €10 pp/pn on hostelworld, but when we extended direct through the hostel it was €15 each, so definitely book online.

Urbany Hostel Sevilla

Seville, Spain
83%

Great for a budget hostel. We stayed in the 10 bed dorm room, there were difficulties because the aircon didn't seem to work, so people were constantly opening and closing the windows. One of the guys behind the desk came and woke us up one night to tell us off for opening the windows, we were highly annoyed because we hadn't touched them. Caused tension between the other guests. Perhaps signage to say "leave closed when aircon on" would alleviate, or just turn off the non-working air cons?

Good budget hostel. Same aircon issues as below... However free breakfast was decent, ensuites were big and there was a kitchen and roof terrace. You need to pay extra for sheets, which no body did, so everyone was just sleeping on raw mattress

Hotel Majestic Essaoiura

Essaouira, Morocco
54%

Expensive & filthy. We paid 150DH for a dusty dirty double room. One of the shared showers didn't work, the other had no lock on the door. The toilet hasn't been cleaned in 100 years, the smell was absolutely unbearable. We stayed the night, and checked out at dawn. Found another place just 100 metres away, luxurious in comparison and for only 100DH a night.

Sapa Luxury Hotel

Sapa, Vietnam
83%

Definitely more of a hotel than a hostel. We booked a triple and the room was massive, with huge balcony overlooking the beautiful mountains. Breakfast was included, the pho was huge and delicious. Shower was a bit dodgy, either scolding hot or freezing cold. They store luggage for free and have a bathroom available for use after check out. Free delicious tea in reception. Very friendly concierge.

Dont tell Mama

Sihanoukville, Cambodia
77%

We booked a place online, as we arrived at 6am and wanted to have somewhere to go. We arrived at the hotel before 7am, and let us check in straight away for no extra charge. Very impressed and happy with that! We paid around $15 a night, for a bungalow room with shared bathroom. It was an authentic bungalow, with thatched roof and bamboo walls. The owner said they have had some security issues, so we left our passports and valuables with them to keep secure in their van.

Jasmine Family Hostel

Siem Reap, Cambodia

More of a boutique hotel than a hostel. Really nice pool, clean rooms, free breakfast. Wifi was dodgy on second floor, but I read on trip advisor that they have since rectified this issue. Our one qualm was booking a bus with them. We paid extra to book through them, on the premise of it being a "luxury bus". Turns out we old have saved ourselves $10 and booked through ANY other place, cause they all use the same nightmare bus. (And by nightmare, I mean we had to lay in the luggage compartment!)

Oriental Riverside Residence

Melaka, Malaysia

We had a fantastic stay at Oriental Riverside Residence. We extended our stay several times. Our room (5) had a super comfy bed, and overlooked the canal. The shared bathroom was spotless, I think we were only sharing it with one other room. 2 minute walk to Jonker, and a well stocked minimart next door. The owners were lovely, they gave us lots of information about our upcoming trip to Myanmar. Highly recommend. Would have no hesitations in staying again.

Guy at the front desk was great, hostel was warm & had good parking, 5 minute walk from city centre. Had an awesome atmosphere inside, was pretty easy to meet up with a group of people to go out with. For those who are just there for day time activites, quiet time was enforced, so you'll get a good sleep too! Def stay here!!

STF Vandrarhem Stigbergsliden

For starters, as well as paying for your accommodation you have to buy membership to hostel international or something, an extra $27 PER PERSON. Ridiculous. Sheet hire is another $7 per person, the costs really add up. And reception only opens after 4pm. If you are only staying a couple of nights you would be better off seeking a hotel. Also, after checking out we queried if it would be ok to wait around in the common area for a couple of hours before our flight and were flat out refused.

Stay here!! Amazing, we were paying 8 euro a night each for a 5 bed dorm, but we were the only ones in there. Double bed, no bunk beds! Place was brand new and super clean, rooms were serviced everyday, more like a hotel then a hostel. Right underneath Pratsky Hrad and 15 minute walk to old town square. Definitely recommend it!

All In Hostel/Hotel

A school camp were staying here at the same time as us, they ran riot with no supervision, screaming down the corridors and banging on our door and walls to all hours. Bathrooms need to be serviced more regularly with that many people coming through. But it was in a good location and the transport in the area is great, regular bus and night tram too. If you want somewhere cheap stay here, but expect what you pay for.

Smart Camden Hostel

The place has a weird smell to it, I waited ages for a shower to become free, I was the only person under 30 in the room. We were woken up at 3 am by a drunken irish bloke banging on our door cause he couldn't figure out the key. He proceeded to abuse us all then light up a cigarette in bed. Not the hostels fault, but surely the person at reception could have stopped him coming in in such a state

Have stayed here multiple times since arriving in London in June. Instantly fell in love with the place. Had so many amazing nights with so many amazing people. So easy to meet drinking companions in the common room and the 2 tables outside, the hostel seems to attract a fairly friendly (and sometimes rowdy) crowd. Location is perfect, so close to so many music venues, markets just down the road, and buses and tubes in all directions. Definitely stay here!
