Great location, right next to where the airport buses drop you off. Adequate rooms, nothing special but certainly nothing to complain about. The best thing about the hostel is the bar with the little outside seating area. We were there for the England vs Italy rugby game and there was a great atmosphere, nothing intimidating - just fun. Its probably also one of the cheapest bars in Rome

Dublin International (YHA)

Dublin, Ireland

First impressions were poor due to the surrounding area but it was actually a good location - close to town. The included breakfast was also very good, as were the showers and other facilities. The only downside to this hostel was the lack of atmosphere, it is very much a YOUTH hostel, i.e the sort of place you go on a primary school trip. But overall it was okay, not great, not terrible.

Many thanks for your comments, with it being just after St Patrick's weekend and all the excess the days following this are often when we all need a moment to recover both financially and physically and this can portrayed as being quiet and result in a lack of atmosphere in the hostel, so I apologize for this. The Dublin International Hostel is still a great base to get out and about the rest of Dublin and Ireland, one of the few hostels that sell both hop on and off bus passes and Guinness Storehouse tickets and staffed 24 hours. Should you return to Dublin, I hope that you will try and stay with us again so that we can try and redeem ourselves in your eyes. Take care and safe travels, Kindest regards Misty Dublin International Hostel

Really nice hotel at a good price. We booked an elephant trek there which was really easy. Nice on site restaurant. Nothing nearby so no good for nightlife. The only down side is a tuk tuk is needed to get into town but it isnt very expensive and a good experience.

Not quite as advertised but still perfectly adequate. I think it claimed to be the 6th best hostel in he world or something, but it isnt. The location was good, 2 mins from Petaling street and about 10 to petronas towers. The staff were very friendly and the showers were good! Also a good place to meet people.

This is a quiet hostel. Im sure there are more fun hostels in Cairns such as Gilligans etc but this is good if you want some peace. Its about a 10 minute walk to town and close to the supermarket at the central mall. They are useful to book trips through, especially to the great barrier reef. I would definately reccomend down under dive as the company to use. It was really good value for money and they staff were great.

Base Brisbane - Central

Brisbane, Australia
43%

I only stayed here one night before i went to Fraser Island. I wouldnt recommend it. I chose it as it was fairly cheap but overall it would have been better to pay a couple more dollars and stay near the transit center. While on Fraser i left my backpack in the storage area. When i returned after the trip all my bag was open. The security is terrible, anyone could walk in, and as proved, they did. My camera charger was the only thing missing, it could have been worse but still not happy.

Good hostel, sweet place to meet people and have a good night out in the Scary Canary. Offer good things to do, for example we had a day out on a party bus at the beach where we got free goon and bbq and played some games. Once again a good place to meet people.

This is a great place to stay before going to the island. Its more of a hotel than a hostel. The staff were very good, they make an effort to call you by name which is a nice touch. The dorms are very good, they have air con, which at times was too cold but a welcome relief from the heat. The food was also very good and reasonably priced, especially the beef stir fry. There isnt much to do around the hotel but its nice to just relax, its also easy to get into Nadi town.

Stayed here for two nights. No complaints besides the lack of air con/fan. The day we went it was hot and getting to sleep at night was very uncomfortable. Had a nice bbq in aid of Christchurch earthquake, everyone got together and it was very friendly.


YHA Whangarei Falls Backpackers

Whangarei, New Zealand
93%

This is the best hostel we stayed in NZ. We stayed in a small cabin with a double bed and a single bed above it. The facilities at the hostel were great! The hot tub was very nice to sit in on a night. The location is out of town however there is a pick up/drop off service which was great. Its only a 2 minute walk to the falls which is probably the best thing to see in Whangarei anyway. The best part of the hostel are the owners, Alison and Graham, they made us feel very welcome!

This hostel is okay. Its just the same as all the other Base hostels, good location, pretty fun but pretty basic. This hostel was not good nor bad, it was just alright.


Borders Beyond

This is an alright hostel, the only problem being that it is quite far from town. It says it is only a short walk but its longer than it looks. Besdies this it has all the facilities that anyone would want from a hostel. The hostel feels quite homely which is nice and the guy that runs it is very helpful and friendly.
