Hostel Gastama

Lille, France

Good location, atmosphere and very helpful staff. Clean. There was just a problem with the sink in the room but I told them about it so it should be fine. Recommended.

Zackry Guest House

Langkawi, Malaysia

Nice hostel, helpful owner and good common area. The only downside is that it's far from the main beach so you'll need to get a taxi for 8-10 ringgit or hire a scooter, though there is nice beach just a few mins from the hostel.

The 80's Guesthouse

Penang, Malaysia

In the centre of town, good showers , good air con, helpful staff. Recommended.

KRS Pines Guest House

Tanah Rata, Malaysia

Pros: Helpful staff, short walk from the centre of town, can organise day trips and buses etc. Cons: Cold showers, and I mean cold, slow internet

Ringos Foyer Guest House

Melaka, Malaysia

Close to the centre of town and the owner organises bike rides in the evenings (when I was there at least). Good air con in the room. You just need to try to arrange your arrival time as he wasn't in when I arrived.


Perfect for late night/early morning transfers to the airport. It is actually set up to be a good hostel with a good kitchen/bar area and good communal areas, but if visiting Lima you'd want to be more central. Airport transfers are a little expensive given the short distance but worth it for the convenience plus the driver is a top bloke.


Great staff, particulary the barman (Guillermo I think) who helped me out a lot, and two common areas to hang out in - very social. Good security - have to buzz to get in. Good showers. Very close to centre. Points lost on cleanliness as my bed hadn't been changed from the previous person, but I would stay here again.


All the facilities you might need and secure as it is behind a security gate. Not too far from the centre.

Bahaus Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

A bit rough around the edges (room was a bit smelly and the window wouldn't close properly) but great location near to the blue mosque, great staff, and a great roof top bar with a view of the bosphorus, where you can meet other travellers. Also a good breakfast included.

HI Siem Reap

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Decent location not far at all from the town centre. Friendly staff. (Private) room was decent - had a fridge and TV. Bathroom tap was dodgy though they did ask if everything was ok when I left so I told them then. 1 communal computer generally available to use.

Lub d Bangkok Siam Square

Bangkok, Thailand

Great staff, who organize nights out and are generally very helpful. You get a big locker in the dorm and the communal bathroom facilities are good. Loads of computers to use too. My only issue with this place is that it's away from the old town and Khaosan road area, and with Bangkok's nightmare traffic it can take a while to get into town, so it's maybe worth checking out somewhere closer.

Budget Backpackers

Edinburgh, Scotland

Recommended. Great staff, good location, decent bar and a good breakfast. You'll need a big padlock for the lockers, or buy one of their's for £4. Their free walking tour is worth doing first of all too. The massive connect 4 is fun too, though we lost to some Brazilians :(

Hostelgate Privates

Vilnius, Lithuania

Nice hostel. In the old town, helpful staff and clean. No locks on the room doors but you can get a locker if you leave a deposit and there's a door code to get into the hostel from the street, plus you then go past reception anyway. If you want to stay in there's a nice living room with a TV with films and a big kitchen. Recommended.

Hotel Loeven

Copenhagen, Denmark

Reasonably cheap for Copenhagen and therefore not much character, but it was fine for the night. Not far from centre and close to central station. Bizarre bathroom - shower not confined so therefore makes the whole bathroom floor wet when used. Bedding wasn't very clean but to be fair I didn't ask for it to be replaced.

Ars Hostel & Bar

Krakow, Poland

Great hostel, had everything you'd want. Only complaint would be the apparently thin walls, or maybe the people in the living room were just very noisy (although it was probably already 9 or 10am). Free internet, very close to castle.

Hi, Thank you for your comment , it's not a thin wall- ''just'' a group of hockey players checking in ...

Alibi M14 Hostel

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Seems very difficult to get good value accomodation in Ljubljana. So we booked this private room in this hostel, and for what we paid we have got much better value and standard of accomodation elsewhere in Europe - I guess there's just a shortage of accomodation in Ljubljana. The room was basic but fine, but the bathroom stank of mould, which you could see on the ceiling. Otherwise it was clean, the staff very helpful, and a very central location, although you have to go up a dirty smelly stairwell to get t
