Rocky Mountain Hotel

Petra, Jordan

Warm and welcoming. Very helpful NZ owner and lots of local knowledge. Staff friendly. Location quite far up hill from Petra but free shuttle bus.Upstairs dining room furnished 'bedouin' style with reclining seats and low tables which was attractive and different. Only one choice of evening Jordanian buffet meal varied daily, but very nice. Breakfast also Jordanian only and would have liked some 'western' alternative. Room tired and shabby, sheets did not fit bed, but comfortable. Hot shower.

Cheers Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

We had a delightful deluxe ensuite room in a separate building. Very clean and excellent amenities. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Good breakfast - eat as much as you can. Very centrally situated with all the main tourist sites within walking distance. No self catering, but lots of eating places around at excellent value. We would recommend this hostel to anyone.

Anzac Hotel

Canakkale, Turkey

Very nice and clean double ensuite room. 3rd floor with lift. Quiet, TV, hairdryer, good shower, tea/coffee facilities, towels changed daily, and mini bar/fridge. Staff very kind and helpful. Very centrally located, everything within walking distance. Staff helped us co-ordinate with our tours etc. very large breakfast included in price. Evening meal till 8.00pm very reasonably priced. Excellent value for money. Highly recommend.

Rotorua, New Zealand

We stayed one night. The room was clean, as were the kitchen and showers. We found the number of stairs and doors a bit bewildering, and got 'lost' a couple of times! The laundry had 2 washing machines and dryers, and an iron and ironing board. The hostel is central to the town

Berkenhoff Lodge

Taupo, New Zealand

Our room was clean, as was the shower (en suite). The hostel seemed well regulated and the kitchen was video-ed to ensure cleaniless. As a result the kitchen was very clean. The hostel is a short walk from the centre so much quieter - which suited us.

Global Village Travellers Lodge

Greymouth, New Zealand

This was the best hostel we have stayed in yet. The standard of cleanliness was excellent, the fabric and furnishings were really nice, good laundry facilities, including an iron and ironing board, and lots of character to the hostel. Would recommend this to anyone.

Matterhorn South

Wanaka, New Zealand

We upgraded to a 'lodge' on arrival as the manager offered us this as an alternative. This was excellent. The standard of cleanliness throughout was very high, kitchen very adequate and the hostel very central to the town. Only downside was that there was only one washing machine and dryer, so we had to use the laundrette across the road.


Invercargill, New Zealand

We only stayed one night, thank goodness. While the room was satisfactory, this was about all. The kitchen was scruffy and dirty. One shower room was just adequate, the other shower over a bath, in very poor condition, and this bathroom was dirty and very scruffy. The washing machine worked, but there was no tumble dryer so impossible to dry clothes overnight. Irritated by having to take our shoes off inside, esp as floors dirty.

Owner Comment (Hide)
I would like to apoligise to these guests,and point out that unforchunately I have recently had a knee injury,which has made me unable to do simple things like make beds and vacumn,I have had some staff do some of the cleaning and maintenace around the hostel.We are continuing an upgrade/renovation of the hostel.The shower room that the guests complained about (the room that is just adequate)has been commented on as being nicely decorated and hot shower etc so I cant really see what they are on about.We strive to be the best hostel in Invercargill,but it also takes alot of money to continue to do renovations and alterations,the bath is going to be taken out and a new shower put in,(hopefully we have a busy winter season once the jacuzzi is operational,more guests more $$$$$ to renovate the bathroom.

Our room was clean and adequate, as were the kitchen facilities. Staff were helpful, location central. Showers were hot, but the washing facilities overall were only average. However, the hostel was fine for our needs and we enjoyed our stay.
