Staff are very welcoming and helpful. Good shower and toilets. Easy to meet people. I know youre not going to get any cheaper but paying 70us for the tenderloin come on, at least throw a free keg in the lobby every second night.

Abu Safari Jaisalmer

Awesome place! Abu Safari hostel is Jaisalmer. Best staff, alright wifi, stones throw away from the fort and of course good options for camel safaris. Safari was unforgettable got caught in a mad lightning and sandstorm, but we were well taken care of after with a warm fire and plenty of vodka. Excellent common area, best place to meet others and the beer shop is just around the corner. Could very well be top hostel in Rajasthan soon.

Great staff. Big common room and dorm rooms. Nice outside terrace. Wifi is alright when not every gimp is on youtube. Awesome washing machine best wash in all of India. Price is alright, similar to a cheap hotel but you get the priceless socialisation that comes with a good hostel. You can order dinner in. Free filtered water! Ample kitchen. A few kms away from sights but no big deal. Enjoy!

Nice breakfast in the morning. Good wifi. 5 minute walk to New Delhi train station and Metro. Down an alley next to the busy street, near a few bars and some comfy roof top restaurants. Nice room with cosy bathroom good place to dump the bags and see the sights. Staff are really cool and helpful and booking transport is easy with them.

A really cool hostel, run by Rob who is very welcoming, easy going and knowledgeable of the area. Located right by the beach. The rooftop has excellent views of sunrise, sunset and the surrounding backwaters. A nice quiet area isolated from the busy streets but has access to everything you need via walking, free bikes or cheap scooter hire. Sleep under the stars in a hammock. Cleaning lady cooks from time to time. Sunset beers with a game of cards followed by a late night swim. Awesome!

A stones throw away from the beach. A very relaxing and chilled place to hit the beach all day and come back put your feet up have a drink and let the staff cook for you. The kitchen has ample facilities and with a supermarket just around the corner its perfect for cheap meals. Wifi is strong although the security is a little weak. Had a great stay, highly recommend.


Hostel One Paralelo

Barcelona, Spain
97%

The hostel have clearly earned their `Best Staff Award`. They help you with any questions, cook dinner each night and take you out to different drinking locations. Great to jump in the hot tub with a cerveza and get the party started. Toilets where clean and had a powerfull flush. The showers are very tight causing constant elbow banging while shampooing. However its a small negative at the bottom of a big bag of positives.

This place is in a great location, the showers are small but pump out hot water, wifi is strong, the staff are helpful and the place is nicely decorated. Most guests found it strange to have the reception right there next to the toilets showers and wash basins. I didnt mind too much especially when your towel drops while your brushing your teeth and 4 danish girls are checking in next to you. They need thicker beds,pillows and checkout should be 11am. These simple things might improve ya rating!

Value for money let this place down. I tried to shower 4 times a day to make it worthwhile. 60 US dollars a night and some people in my room were paying 60 and others 40, explain that one. BBQ cooking guy does a good job, A BBQ 5 nights a week would be better. Staff could do better to lead some events, e.g local bar hop, quiz night. Some music in the common area would be helpful.

When you`ve got Miami International Hostel pumping down the street. You kind of feel like you`re missing out at this one. No drinks allowed thats always an annoying sign to see. Security could be better, i checked out and a few hours later realised i left my shampoo so i just got in the elevator walked past reception the room was unlocked grabbed it and walked out without anyone saying anything.

I had a great time at this hostel. Really cool vibe, with a nice big outdoor area, and relaxing in the pool with a beer was awesome. Right next to the tram line, takes 5 minutes to get to Bourbon street. Security could be better, didnt even have to use my key the door was always unlocked. I thought it was quite clean for New Orleans but some guests thought it could be cleaner. HAVE FUN!
