Nomads Fat Camel Hostel

Auckland, New Zealand
54%

Loud, late night music from the bar + early morning garbage trucks + stuffy rooms requiring open windows = no sleep. The apartment set up sounds great, but the facilities don't accommodate the needs of 30+ people. 2 toilets and 2 showers is simply not enough. The "extra" toilet in the stairwell is shared by multiple floors and is often occupied. The kitchen is tiny: a 4-burner stove, a full size fridge and mini-fridge for 30+ people?? We met people who'd had bedbug issues. Will not be returning.

Hi Katie, Thanks for taking the time to place feedback on your stay with us and we are devastated it did not live up to your expectations. With the great location the hostel can sometimes be noisy on weekends with windows open in the warmer months. I hope you were aware of the free snack sized meals in he bar each night and that there are toilet/showers on all stairwell landings not just one! A long promised upgrade of the building by the owners which will see one brand new kitchen on level 1

We stayed at Oaklands for 10 days and quickly felt like it was 'home.' The staff were extremely helpful and had answers to all our questions for getting started with our Working Holiday visas. The kitchen facilities were fantastic and we always had burners available when we needed them. Fun community environment in a nice area of Auckland - we'll be back!


Udee Bangkok

We were initially worried about being so far from the main center, but the location proved to be fantastic! Udee's in the heart of the 'real' Bangkok - there weren't any other tourists in sight! Amazing street food, cheap prices, and close to the Skytrain, airports, and train station. In the end, it's really well connected. The hostel was extremely clean and well-kept. The staff & resources were very helpful. It was peaceful & quiet and a welcome escape from the craziness of the city! Thank you!

Old Town Hostel Kotor

Kotor, Montenegro
97%

The 4 guys that run this hostel are incredible and do just about everything to help make your stay memorable. Rajika is unavoidable, as are late-night conversations. Will definitely be back!! The only criticism is that the bathrooms in the 10-bed dorm need some sort of ventilation - it's hot & sticky. But I gladly overlooked the steamy bathroom for all the other perks that come with this hostel. Great work boys!!


Montenegro Hostel

Kotor, Montenegro
49%

I stayed in a double room with a shared bathroom. The air conditioning didn't work, and the only window in the room was a skylight. At 10pm the room was still blistering hot and we had no way to cool it down. The room and bathroom have slanted ceilings so you can't stand up straight while showering or when you're next to the bed. It was not comfortable and not worth 35 euro as you can find private accomodations (with a kitchen) for less. Staff was just okay, not very informative or helpful.


Residence Rooms

Sarajevo, Bosnia And Herzegovina
97%

Fantastic hospitality and great facilities. Residence Rooms was very comfortable and I felt like I was at home. I LOVED the Tunnel Tour, it gave a very personal connection to the history of Sarajevo. The only down side is that it's on a small street which has numerous pubs - it's very loud outside at night until about 3am. If you're a light sleeper, bring ear plugs, or just go join the crowd downstairs. All in all a fantastic hostel experience!!


The Wild Fig Hostel

Zadar, Croatia
83%

The kitchen facilities were excellent, and it was great to be near the bus station so you can take day trips but it's a long walk to town, 25 minutes taking the short route. The staff was friendly and helpful with questions about Zadar, but Ness (owner) seemed like she needed a holiday. No complaints really other than than the price. This is not a 25€/night hostel. Compared to other cities in Croatia, which have much more to see and do, no hostel in Zadar should cost 25€ for a dorm bed.
