Phi Phi Ingphu Viewpoint

Koh Phi Phi, Thailand

A lot of people complain about this place's location, but we thought it was great. It's an easy 5-10 minute walk to town (a little uphill, but by no means "steep"), and it's easy to get a good night's sleep outside of all of the noise. The air con was great, it was nice having a balcony. We did find a small mouse in the room, but given the location you have to cut them some slack. Staff was okay, some were friendly, some weren't.

Mundo Hostel

Krakow, Poland

I wish I could give this place a higher review, because the staff was so nice and so helpful, but unfortunately our room was a bit dirty. There was a lot of dust under the bed, as well as old earplugs and a dirty tissue. However, we did talk to other guests who said their rooms were very clean. Breakfast was great, and it was easy to book outings to Auschwitz and the Salt Mine.

Sir Toby's Hostel

Prague, Czech Republic

Nice garden area, and cool pub. Pretty young crowd (18 yr olds), but I think that's like most of the hostels in Prague. The hostel is a bit outside of Old Town, but it's really easy to get there from the tram stop right next to the hostel. It's actually nice not to be in the center of town with the swarms of people and drunk people yelling all night. The staff was really helpful, and the rooms were clean.


Having never stayed at a Meininger I didn't realize they were so...hotel-ish. The pros of this are the really clean rooms and facilities, but it's a bit sterile. The location right next to the train station made it really easy to get anywhere so we didn't end up spending much time at the hostel.

Pension Alpha

Frankfurt, Germany

The location next to the train station made it really easy to explore and get anywhere, which was good because hanging out in the hostel was nothing too exciting. It's clean, but sterile, and there's no common area to hang out in. All in all, pretty average.

Crooked House

Amsterdam, Netherlands

This place was like having our own apartment in Amsterdam which was amazing. Cute room with a bathroom and a little kitchen. However, if you're looking to meet people this is not the spot since it's just a little apartment rented out by a dutch family. If you're looking for a chill spot to come home to after a day or night out, this is your place. Great location, and gives you more of an independent Amsterdam experience.

KEX Hostel

Reykjavik, Iceland

Really good atmosphere because locals come here to visit the pub/restaurant and mix with the travelers. Really comfortable beds, and nice staff. The breakfast was SO good, and the decor of the hostel was super funky. They also have nice, hoppy beers on tap.

Miraflores House

Lima, Peru

The owner Francis is a gem, and he is really what makes this hostel so spectacular. He is so friendly, and very helpful when it comes navigating the city and suggesting things to do (and many places to eat!) which is a huge asset in such a big city. The hostel is decorated with all kinds of random trinkets, maps, even animal skulls, but because it's such a small place it's a bit hard to meet other people. The staff were all really nice, and cleaned the rooms every day.

La Serrana

Salento, Colombia

Wow this hostel is beautiful. It's a 15 minute walk from town, but the location is well worth it. The views are amazing, and the hostel cooks dinner (around 12 mil) which is always delicious. It would be nice if there were more hammocks, but for the most part there was always at least one open. Many travelers we met ended up staying here longer than they originally intended because it's such a beautiful and peaceful place.

Mountain Hostels

Manizales, Colombia

This is a quiet hostel with a nice location near to the supermarket, bars, and good restaurants. The staff is super friendly, and can help you navigate the city very well. The only issues were the kitchen (very small), and the noise early in the morning. The hostel also helps set up a really cool tour of Los Nevados park on the back of a milkman's truck.

Eco Hostal Yuluka

Santa Marta, Colombia

An absolutely beautiful place to stay, but we found it hard to get a ride to Tayrona NP. The hostel is located on the road that leads to Tayrona, but by the time the buses reached us from Santa Marta most were full and just drove past. This could have been because of Semana Santa (everything was crowded everywhere), but it would have been much easier for us if we tried to get to Tayrona from Santa Marta. That being said, I'm very glad we got to stay in this little piece of paradise for a night.

The Dreamer Hostel

Santa Marta, Colombia

The hostel is a bit outside of town, but has a great pool and is near to everything you need (food, grocery stores, etc.). The staff was very helpful with planning trips to Minca, Cuidad Perdida, Tayrona, and there were some fun activities like Trivia Night and Killer Pool night that allow you to win a free breakfast. The restaurant on site is decent, but the pasta was very greasy. An overall nice place though, I would recommend it.

Black Sheep Hostel Medellin

Medellin, Colombia

Stayed at the Black Sheep for two weeks to take Spanish lessons with Yadi (the owner's wife), and so glad I did. Yadi is an excellent teacher and very good at assessing your current Spanish skills and building on them. The location of the hostel was great, a short walk to the bars and nightlife but not right in the middle of the chaos. I think the location attracted the best crowd as well. Nice common spaces, and delicious Sunday BBQ.
