More of a backpacker hotel than a hostel. Amazing breakfast buffet and a great swimming pool. If you're backpacking in Hoi An it's really the only place that backpackers stay so it's a great place to meet other travellers.

Nice hostel, well located in downtown Victoria. The live music every night was nice and the staff were all very friendly. The only downside was that the dorm rooms were unbearably hot and the one small fan that was provided didn't help to abate this.


89%

This hostel is very nice in terms of cleanliness and comfort. It's only downfalls are it's location, as has been mentioned before, as well as it's size which gives it more of a hotel feel and makes socializing with other travelers a bit harder. Regardless it was still a very nice place to stay in Paris and considering the Paris metro is simple the location was not a particularly big deal.


Basel Back Pack

Basel, Switzerland

Nice hostel. It's handy that they give you a public transport card as it makes getting around Basel incredibly easy. It wasn't a particularly social hostel, but it offered clean rooms and comfortable beds so I have no complaints.

Really nice hostel, but due to its size felt a bit more like a hotel at times. It's difficult to meet people as a result, but regardless of this the hostel itself was incredibly clean and pleasant and offered a safe and comfortable place to stay during my time in Berlin. The sky bar is also incredibly cool and offers great views over Berlin.

Travellers House

Lisbon, Portugal

The hostel is wonderfully situated and the staff, especially Guy, are really friendly and helpful. The hostel offers a variety of different activities in the evening to help everyone learn more about Portugese culture which I would recommend. It wasn't necessarily a party hostel, or even the best hostel in the world as this website suggests, however, if you're staying in Lisbon I would recommend this hostel to anyone.
