Hostal La Casa de Felipe

Taganga, Colombia
91%

Popular with the European crowd, some 10 min walk (slightly uphill) to the beach and main streets. The food from the onsite restaurant was amazing (have a least on meal there). Dorms were comfortable (single fan) with lockers for valuables in the rooms (wooden) and reception (safer but only accessible 0730-2100). Staff helped organise boat into Tayrona NP and bus back (spoke English, Spanish and some French). Wonderful, non-party (at least when I visited) and busy hostel (book ahead).

Carroll's Hostel

Santa Marta, Colombia
97%

Not in the main part of Santa Marta, next beach west in a quiet residential neighbourhood. 7-9 min walk from a very nice beach. Alan and Jessica (owners) were very knowledgable of the area (including Taganga and Tayrona NP) and made me feel very welcome. Lockers for valuables are available in the rooms. Bunks have curtains, individual fans (needed in the Carribean), charge point and lights. The pool area is terrific. English and Spanish spoken. A great hostel to chill. Stayed twice!

Tadz Hotel - Novi Pazar

Novi Pazar, Serbia

Not a bad place, expensive for the town but few hostelworld options. Great breakfast, helpful staff. If arriving at the bus stop Harris runs a cafe across the road (hexagonal glass kiosk). He was very helpful with directions and can sort out accom/taxi if required. Terrific food as well.

Old Town Hostel East Wing

Kotor, Montenegro

Great location, terrific staff. Did their one day Montenegro tour (Slavok the guide was knowledgable and fun) which gave a good overview of this small but lovely country. Got a lift to Žabljak (recommended; they run as a one day Tara Canyon rafting trip from Kotor); staying 2 nights at a new hostel owned by former old town manager; fantastic (thanks Alex and Gina).

Great hostel in a terrific location. Staff very helpful. Use of washing machine €2, clothes line out back. DIRECTIONS: from centre (tourist office, mosque, Hotel Rozafa) head towards the train station via Bulevardi Skënderbeu past the yellow post office for another 150m. Hostel in a small lane on right, see name on gate.

A Scalinatella

Amalfi, Italy
86%

I spent two nights. The manager is very helpful and friendly. It is only a short walk 15min from Amalfi on the next bay. The directions are a little confusing; get off at the bus stop above Atrani beach and take the steps down to the piazza where you'll find the hostel's breakfast room. The actual beds, and where I checked in, was a short walk away (2min). These directions are posted on the door. Breakfast was very nice and plentiful. No lockers for storage, but rooms large

Wonderful hostel in a great little town with beautiful beaches. The front two dorm rooms are used for access to the balcony but the hostel has lockers to secure packs. Balcony to be vacated by 11pm; a policy adhered to by guests when I stayed (2 nights). Nice place to sit in the early evening. Short walk to the bus station, short bus ride then to the train station. Staff were very knowledgeable re bus and train times for onward journey.

The 3 bed dorms are a room inside a much larger dorm, strange. The hostel was recommended to me, I find it difficult to believe a better hostel can't be found for the price in Prague.

Great location near the castle. A bit of a walk from the train/bus station. Trams available. Cheaper rooms appear most popular. I had a 4 bed dorm to myself.
