Great hostel! Felt very spacious, loved all the natural light and the open kitchen and lounge, and the sundeck. The bar below didn't get too loud and it was nice to go shoot pool for free (unavailable Friday and Saturday nights, but that's fair). Location seemed pretty central from what I could tell--I spent a lot of time outside the city so I didn't get to explore as much.

Great location in town, my room had a great view, and it was nice to have an ensuite bathroom. The rooms are super narrow which is a bit annoying, also they advertise free wifi but really it's only in the downstairs lounge/reception, and only from 7am to 7pm, and it's super shotty--you have to pay to get reliable internet. Solid place to stay though, I didn't find it to be *too* party hostel-y.

Awesome location. Very college dorm-esque. The rooms are fairly spacious although the beds are really uncomfortable. The lounge is comfy and there's a pool table (for $2/game), there's also a small free dinner at a pub a few blocks away, and the hostel organizes a walk over there with everyone. Key card security is convenient, bathrooms are clean. Only annoying thing (other than the beds) was that since it's such a large hostel, storing food in the fridge means it can be tricky to find later.

Nice little hostel in Wanaka. Staff were friendly and helpful, good location, beds weren't too squeaky, and I enjoyed that it was small and thus not terribly crowded. You only get 500mb of free wifi/day, but you can purchase more from $2. They also had mountain bikes for hire, $20 for the day--really good thing to do if you don't have a car.

Great hostel-love the pods, it's convenient to charge electronics/gives a bit of privacy. Really good location (although you'd be hard pressed to have a bad location in such a tiny town) and the pub next door is a good spot to hang out. The staff were friendly and helpful with advice/booking activities.

Nice little hostel in Nelson. Comfy, squeak-free bunks, free bread, and awesome location.

Great hostel! Awesome location next to Cuba St., Te Papa Museum, and the bay. Free pancake breakfast and dinner is nice--dinner is at the pub next door, not all that big but it did the trick for me. The staff were mostly friendly although there were a couple desk assistants that were a *tad* snooty. Only real downside was that the rooms get quite stuffy even with the windows cracked, and the beds are super super creeky. Tiny issues though, I would definitely stay again.

India House Backpackers Hostel, New Orleans, USA

30th Mar 2013

I loved India House! Good location, friendly staff, and great courtyard and pool area, and for an awesome price. The shower that I used was a little wonky but nothing unmanageable. I was a bit annoyed to see that they don't have enough lockers for all guests, but the dorm rooms are locked so just keep your valuables on you and you're good. Otherwise, I was travelling alone and felt totally safe there. I will definitely stay at India House next time I'm in NOLA!

This hostel is an excellent location and good if you just need a place to sleep for a couple nights, especially for the price. Not really for hanging out, though the common area was decent...it wasn't the cleanest place but it wasn't that bad--wear shower flip flops!

Everything was pretty nice, but we were a bit worried to find a bug in the sheets upon putting the linens on the top bunk in our 3 bed private.
