Kelly's Courtyard

Beijing, China

Fantastic place to stay in Beijing. Lovely area in the Hutongs but central. Does not feel super touristy so feel like your in it. Great staff, really friendly and helpful. Room and set out is very interesting and makes a good atmosphere. They've done a very good good here! We only had two days in Beijing on the transit visa, wished we had longer and would stay here.

Tran Ly Hotel

Hue, Vietnam

Extremely good value for money, which included breakfast. Reception / staff very helpful, particularly impressed that when we got back to the hotel to pick up bags after our DMZ tour they offered shower etc and help getting to train station. Rooms good size, with aircon / wifi / fridge. Beds and bathroom seen better days. Close to walk to everything. Had we been in Hue longer we would have stayed here.

Hai Au Hotel

Hoi An, Vietnam

The staff are excellent, taking time to learn name and make sure everything is ok. Room good with good size and all facilities you want. Had mosquito nets which is the first time I see in SE Asia! Breakfast was the best included one we have had here too, lots of options. Location was excellent, 5 mins to old town walking. I really couldn't fault the hotel it'self at all! Bus we used with them to Hue was a sleeper which we did not know and did not need for a 150km journey! Bikes are in bad shape.

Aqua Boutique Guesthouse

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Couldn't recommend this hotel enough. Phnom Pnem is dodgy! So you want a hotel with good security etc. The room was very nice and clean and had balcony over the mad streets. Separate living room although would be better open plan. Safe, kitchenette nice beds. Best of all the staff! They were very friendly and helped us organise so much in very short time. Tour the next day around the best sites, visa for Vietnam in one day. And bus to HCMC. The area was cool, not touristy but near the sites.

Parami Guesthouse

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Excellent value you for money, the tab for drinks is good. Room and AC good, wifi good. Location was great as quieter side of town and walking distance to train or bus station (which we needed both) and saves on taxi. Riverside restaurants expensive, go across bridge to local ones. Tip : bring mosquito spray and net, lots there cause of water feature! Would stay again for sure, didn't use massage but looked good.


Nice small interesting place. Location is the unique part, being in a residential block past. Nice staying with locals and not touristy area. Bad part is that it's 20 min walk to the MRT and in the Singapore heat thats not good! The room itself is good, AC, even a TV and free WIFI. Bed bit hard, we were only there two nights but if you were there longer might hurt your back. Common area is very small and right outside rooms, so noise, should be closed after 10pm. Would stay again for short time.

Apollo Bay Eco YHA

Apollo Bay, Australia

Very clean and safe hostel with good facilities including good kitchen (although an oven would be nice in hostels Australia!). YHA hostels are all very clean. Stayed in one in Brisbane too. Not many hours to check in though. WIFI would be nice, can't be very hard to get WIFI installed these days! Location is excellent for a stop off on the GOR. Would stay again.

Flashpackers Hervey Bay

Hervey Bay, Australia

Good value for money, so can't expect much and it had a pool! Worst point was free internet was only available in the shared area. So lots of people skyping etc in there. Staff very friendly and the shuttle bus is nice and helpful. Good atmosphere and chilled vibe in common room. Rooms were near the only busy road in Hervey bay!

Whitsunday On The Beach

Airlie Beach, Australia

Very good motel, nice layout, great facilities. The best thing is the staff which are very friendly and happy to help with anything, always makes the most difference. Not stayed in many places with a TV on my travels in Oz but this was nice. Location is amazing, so central although noise from a club nearby. Would highly recommend.


Great hostel, would stay there again as good value for money. Also one of the few places with free wi fi (what's up with charging for wi if NZ?!). Location is good, quiet but near downtown. Kitchen and shower alright, good for price. The excellent fan tail adventures comes by there, would thoroughly recommended that. Nice and quiet hostel, laid back. Only gripe is the closed for lunch reception between 1 and 4. Annoying but for the price can live with it.
