Internet is awful. The social area is crammed with seats that encourage very little interaction but that seems to be what the guests want. I was upgraded to a 3 bed room with a private shower for free so that was pretty awesome.

The dorm is located right on a busy street so it's quite noisy. The location is good and the showers are fine even if they're cramped. Internet is ok. Kind of expensive for what you get

Plum Flowers House, Guangzhou, China

16th Nov 2014

I ended up staying here for 10 days. Plum was a great host, the apartment is beautiful, the showers are fine and the location has plentiful eateries and is 100m from the subway, making getting around the city very easy. It is a bit far north of the nightlife so a taxi is a bit costly to get home but that's a small price to pay.

Beautiful location, easy access to the bus to tianmen mountain and a guide comes nightly to provide information on what to do in wulingyuan, tianmen mountain or anything in the area. Dorm mattresses are very thin. Showers are over squat toilets but that's fine as they're kept clean and the showers are hot with good pressure. Staff are friendly with pretty good English.

Showers are great and bathrooms are cleaned frequently. The setup isn't ideal for socialising but Ryan especially is excellent at bringing people together. The reception staff are great with information and help. The food is very good, but expensive. There are plenty of cheaper places to eat nearby and the staff are happy to give directions and write translations. Coffee is roasted on site. I stayed for a week and will go back.

Showers were great, every dorm had lockers for your valuables and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is overpriced but the food is quite good, as is the coffee. Very close to many cheaper restaurants, supermarkets, ATMs etc. It's in the middle of a hutong, so the it feels as if it's sheltered from the hustle and bustle of Beijing, yet it's 5 minutes walk from 3 different subway stations. All in all a very good place to stay.

Namsan Guest House, Seoul, South Korea

26th Sep 2014

The pod beds are amazing, you have your own lights, power sockets, even a TV! There are big lockers for your bags and the showers, while occasionally slightly smelly have good pressure and good heat. The majority of people staying here (namsan 5) are in private rooms so the atmosphere is a little sterile but the location is great. There are 5 (or 6) namsan guesthouses so don't be surprised if it takes the staff a few moments to work out where you're staying. They're all quite close together.

The atmosphere is excellent, the showers are hot with great pressure, there is a kitchen you can use for meals and the price is very good for the location. There are also multiple ways to make your stay cheaper from discounts for blogging, darts challenges and the option to work for your stay. Good hostel experience.

The staff were very helpful, the dorms were clean, the showers were hot with good pressure and the breakfast was self prepared eggs, toast and spreads. The common room downstairs has loads of informational flyers about the island. Excellent jumping off point to explore Jeju.

Dorms are clean and large, staff are friendly and helpful and it's right near a skytrain station. Individual backpack lockers for everyone and your own bed light and couple of power points. The atmosphere is slightly lacking, but with a tv room and bar provided there's not much to complain about

The staff were excellent, especially Maria. The atmosphere was great at the hostel with the bar and common rooms being good places to socialise. On the down side the kitchen is small-ish and the mattresses are mostly springs.

The location is excellent but the dormitory is not goodand the reception is very rarely open (maybe 4-6 hours a day). In the dormitory there is no fan nor aircon as well as having no windows (it's in the basement) so it can get quite stuffy and hot. The dormitory cleaning is very infrequent and during my 7 days the bathroom was never cleaned. The bathroom door has no lock and can't even be closed. The kitchen facilities are ok and there is a fridge provided. The rooftop area is cool.

The kitchen is excellent and the location is great but the wifi costs a euro an hour. The reception being open only from 5pm-9pm is also quite inconvenient, but you are warned about this in the hostel info.

Hostel Vista Serena, Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
9.7
10th Jan 2012

Vista Serena is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. The view is stunning from the large hammock-laden common area (do not miss the sunset from here), the staff are great and the cleanliness is amazing with your sheets being changed every day. The kitchen has everything you need and there's a BBQ grill that you can also use. The 50c 10 minute bus ride makes the beach easily accessible and there's a supermarket just up the road. I intended to stay 3 days and ended up staying 9 weeks.

The hostel was a pleasant place to stay, the room warm and clean and the common area spacious. The social atmosphere was a bit lacking, but that was due to a lack of guests because Montreal is so damn cold right now.
