Amigo Hostel Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

A little off the center but close to a tram stop, a great place if you're looking for a cheap place to sleep.

Sinbad Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

Location is perfect and stuff is very friendly, but everything else leaves much to be desired. Bathroom had a broken tap, leaking sink, loose shelves... rooftop bar has a great view but steep prices (during our stay nobody was ever there). Windows didn't really close/open, one window didn't even have curtains so the sun was shining into our faces every day for 7am on. All in all the place is ok if your plan is to be sightseeing the whole time but it's not a place to chill and meet people.

Riga Style Hostel

Riga, Latvia

Location is pretty close to central bus and train station, but some 10-12min walking from the old city. The rooms and facilities were clean, kitchen is well equipped. But: Olny two showers and two toilets for the whole hostel (there is a third shower/toilet, but the key was missing and nobody bothered to replace it). Staff was really nice, but not always very helpful. All in all it's a nice and clean place that really tries but create a homely atmosphere, but doesn't really succeed.

Jimmy Jumps House/Hostel

Vilnius, Lithuania

Really nice place, had a great time there! Staff is very friendly, helpful, and doesn't mind joining you for drinking games or pub crawls on the weekends. The atmosphere was awesome, it's a great place to meet other travelers if you're traveling alone and are looking for company. Location is also pretty good, close to the central square but a little hidden in a quiet side-road. And they have fresh waffels for every breakfast for free!!!

Central Backpack King

Budapest, Hungary

A location that cannot be topped! 5min from the subway station, old town and the famous ruin bars. The rooms are nice and spacious, kitchen is fully equipped and the common room is nice and cozy. Also one of the staff was very friendly and helpful (and cute ;-) ). It's a perfect place if you're travelling alone and want to meet some new people, go out, and do some sightseeing.

A Wild Elephants Hostel

Bratislava, Slovakia

Great place! Staff (and owner) are really cool, they know their way around and never hesitate to join you for a beer. Or two ;). Location is awesome, couldn't be any better. Since the place is pretty new some thing seem a little provisionally, but everything is built with a lot of love and attention. You can tell it's by backpackers for backpackers. I even extended my stay in Bratislava for a few days because I just enjoyed this hostel so much ;-)

Westend City Hostel

Vienna, Austria

A big place, very clean and located in 5min distance from the western train station. To the old town you have to tae the subway or walk 20-25min. The place is pretty nice, but it's more like a youth hostel than a backpacker's place, the atmosphere was nice and friendly but not really homely. Kitchen could use some more equipment, but it's good enough.

Books Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

First place I've ever been that truly deserved a 100% rating! Great location, perfectly clean bathrooms/toilets, free activities and delicious food for little money in the evening. But the best thing is the (by far) most friendly, helpful, experienced and accommodating staff I've every met! (Especially Felipe, the owner). They'll be able to help you with just anything you might need. The place also has a small bar (very low prices) where everyone in the Hostel gathers, GREAT to meet new people.

Palermo House

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Not the best place I've ever been, but not the worst either. Location is pretty good, toilets, showers and kitchen are in a rather poor condition and not very clean. Two electric hotplates for 40+ people is just useless. Not a real party-place either. The staff therefore was very friendly and helpful and clearly improved my stay in Buenos Aires. All in all it was good enough for the 4 days I stayed, but not for any longer.

Hostel Nakel Yenu

El Calafate, Argentina

Little off the city centre, but otherwise one of the best places I've ever stayed. EXTREMELY nice and helpfull stuff providing maps and info material to pretty much every possible activity. Kitchen is clean (as are the toiletts and showers) and sufficient equipped. Nothing to complain about at all!

Koten-Aike Hostel

Puerto Natales, Chile

Might be the cheapest place in town, but defo one of the best! Only one block from the supermarket, carpet floor in the whole place, a stove the heats the whole place to 25┬ĚC in the cold patagonian evenings, it's just the best place to come back to from several days of Torres del Paine. The rental equipment was also of great qualitiy and not more expensive than anywhere else.

Arsenal Tavern Backpackers

London, England

Probably best value for money I've ever had! The Arsenal Tavern has a really great common room on the ground level with two pool tables, some games and book, free (and really fast) WiFi. The breakfast was not great but definitely good enough: 3 or 4 different kinds of cereals plus toast with 10 choices of jam. Rooms were pretty small, but clean and absolutely sufficient. Especially for that money! I'd love to come back!

Friend's Hostel

Paris, France

No lockers in the room, only one key per 6-shared room. The kitchen looked pretty poor as well, I haven't had the guts to use it. The location is pretty close to the central railway stations and there's a subway just opposite the street, but the neighbourhood is really shabby with heaps of drug dealers lurking around after dark. All in all it's good enough if you're a group, travelling without any valuables, and staying a few days only, but it's defo no place to feel comfortable.
