It's a good hostel, clean, secure and great internet and bathrooms. This place is everything that most of the party hostels around latin america aren't. The matresses are a little uncomfortable but for the nights I was there is quite and peaceful. This is the sort of hostel that I would recommend if you are looking to reset. Which you some times are on a long trip or thinking about an early flight the next morning.
This place is unbelievable, I have never seen a hostel in such good condition. Maria is a fantastic person and also very attractive, holds down the fort very admirably for Colombian women. In terms of facilities it is definatly one of the best in the world. The beds are also phenomenal, some of the best matresses that I've slept on in my life, not just on this trip or anywhere in the world. In my life!! Super markets are close by, the hostel is also in a very nice part of town.
One of the most notorious party hostels in all of South America, I can't that it lived up to expectations when I was there. But it is a fantastic place to meet people and have a good time, it's definatly worth a stay to see what it's all about and also meet some cool ppl along the way. Challenge the bar staff to the dice game...
Great hostel, very clean, very spacious, great internet, great bathrooms, great common areas, interesting staff, not close to the night life. Breakfast is cool to be a part of and some of the evening events are nice. I felt the dinners were a little over rated at times, they (the dinners) are however a good opportunity to socialise, meet the staff and other travelers. I enjoyed my time there and overall would recommend staying here. Ladies night on the wednesday at bungalow is a lot of fun!
I gave most of the categories excellent but I didn't think this was a perfect hostel. It's certainly a very good hostel, it's smaller than you would expect, the breakfast changes daily so some days it's ok and others it's very good, it's very close to lapa within out being in lapa, which I liked, it also pulls a different crowd from those that choose to stay by the beach at ipanema or copacabana. In say that I met some people that I will stay in touch with for the foreseeable future.
"Lemon Spirit" is one of my two favorite hostels in the world. The best showers in the whole of Brazil and potential of any hostel in South America. Rodrigo, Bea, Lucus, Natalia, Gaspa and company are awesome. Make sure you challenge Rodrigo to the pig game. If it can be helped stay in dorm 1, that is by far the best dorm. I stayed here for approximately 3weeks during my time in Brazil and it was everything I could wish for and more. Literally 5mins from Impanema, the world count can't begin to.
Nico and he's wife do make an effort it's the execution that lacks; also the skinny buzz cut is very helpful...6ppl in a room as big as most ppl's bathrooms, check; top bunk so close to the ac you catch a cold; bottom bunk so hot you can't sleep; average breakfast; bags all over the floor you need to climb over them to get in and out of your bunk; mosqusiots; staff that don't speak a word of English, check. Honestly, what more could you want. How about over priced transfers to games...
Priates Da Praia is surprisingly good for a hostel in Brazil - great atmosphere. It is considerably cheaper (66BRL compared to +100BRL) than many of the other top rated hostels around Brazil in Natal and Fortaleza. I thought the execution was very well done, there is a great atmosphere there. The crowd is a mix of South Americans and westerns which added to the atmosphere and vibe of the hostel. Definately give the lunch (14BRL) that they offer a try, surprisingly the best meal I had in Brazil.
My stay was enjoyable, definitely do recommend staying there were a couple of time when I though ok that's a little tight - but I'll get to that later. First the good, the staff are fantastic, Mariah and Yianita are fantastic. The crowd is very pleasant, it's not really a party hostel but it is what you make it. It's close to the beach and the all the main clubs. The four bed dorm is very hot, so avoid it if you can. I also, thought charging 100rl to stay on the couch was a little over the top.
I had a great time at Milhouse, there really is barely a dull moment here at the hostel. It is true, large, party hostel, plenty of drinking, socialising and all that sort of good stuff to be at this hostel. The hostel really makes it very easy for you party and go all out every single night because of the size and the way it is set up. You will always have people to go out with and places to go. Definately worth a visit if you love to party!!! Crowd is all gringo...but still a great time.
I stayed in a double bed ensuite, the shower is a little small and it is expensive but I can't fault the hostel for anything apart from value for money. This is not somewhere that I would usually stay but it was very good none the less if you are looking for some space before a flight or simply want a break from the hussle and bussle of the backpacker trail.
This hostel had bed bugs. Avoid the Dorm on the right as you reach the top of the stairs (next to the lockers) in roommates one, I was in the top bunk on the right as soon as you walk into the room. I found a live adult bed bug in my bed that I bagged and brought to the staff on the second night of my two night stay. I am a little annoyed at myself for being complacent on the first night. To be honest I think Penang must be or must be close to the be bed bug capital of Asia.
Notes: Real saving grace is the roof top bar, met some amazing ppl mostly from the UK and around the world (its pumping most nights). I met people that I will be friends with for a long time. The dorms are OK, and maybe good at best . The rooms are a little aged in my opinion, but still it is a great place to stay. Philo chick on reception is cute!

Lub'd is a fantastic choice when staying in Bangkok, I have stayed at both the Lub'ds (silom and siam square). Personally I prefer the siam Square one because of the food and shopping that you have access to. Siam Square (lub'd) is walking distance from MBK and Siam Paragon. Transport wise it is right underneath the National Stadium BTS station. In addition to this the premises are, as expected, immaculate. One thing I should note is that there is this weird smell, that resonates up and down the
It's not a hostel, very much a hotel. It is a nice place to stay but it is neither cheap or a good place to meet other travelers. I would recommend it but don't expect to meet anyone.
Great place to stay in Jaipur!! It is very good value for money, like most of the accommodation in India it's not a hostel in the true sense of the word hostel or even travelers lodge. In spite of this it is still a great place to stay if you are looking for accommodation in Jaipur.
Definately a hotel, which is to be considered when aligning expectations. In saying nothing really bad to say about my stay. They are very accommodating and I had some of the best tandoori chicken from a street side vendor on the Main Street.
The property is brand spanking new, its great value for money, a short walk or scooter ride to arjuna beach, all the staff are friendly and knowledgable, Jason (owner) is a little quite in my opinion but it doesn't detract from the experience, he definitly knows his stuff. The place is very well run, the only thing I could fault was the Internet access on mobile and portable devices, was inconsistent at times, but if you really need to get online use the desktop provided for communal use.
Castaways...What else can say? I've only got 500 Characters. Seriously, the place can be a little clicky but I still had a lot of fun during my stay here at Hanoi Backpackers. The facilities are top notch and its all you would expect from a larger more commercial type of hostel. There are a lot of people that come through the doors here and the place massive. I stayed in one of the larger dorms here. I do recommend it if you like to party!
Great effort guys keep up the good work!
I stay on an overnight Jo-berg pass through on the way to Kruger, this is a very cheap hostel a reasonable (not walking) distance away from OR Tambo airport. The place is very well keep, everything is luxury, clean, well maintained priced at hostel prices. A staff member tells me that it used to be the home of the guy that runs the joint. The pictures online don't do this place justice, actually alot nicer than what you see online. I had a ensuite with very nice bathroom for $50p.n.

An amazing Hostel to stay at, if you are asking my opinion spend the extra money (if that is an option) and come and stay here for a couple of night. The best way I could sum this place up, is an incredibly well run establishment with attentive staff, great food, a bar open till late, booking service (for all activities and transport) and the ladies that run the place definitely add that little bit of character. It is true the bar is not always pumping but Long St is literally a stones throw awa
