    I had a wonderful stay at Old Radio Hostel. Sherzod is a very kind and welcoming person, he gave me awesome tips for Samarkand and for travelling in Uzbekistan more generally! His english is perfect and he is trying to make the best out of your stay. The location is perfect, near all the major sights and in walking distance to good restaurants and bars. The dorms and bathroom are very clean and newly renovated. Last but not least, the breakfast is awesome, one of the best I had in Uzbekistan

    This place exceeded my expectations in every way. First, the service was excellent. Sherzod is very accommodating and helpful and made my stay very comfortable. He helped with any questions I had and was available and responsive. And he gave me great tips and helped with the rest of my travel within Uzbekistan. The best host I can recall in my travels. And the room was clean and comfortable and the location was excellent. Also, met many other great people at the hostel and it was easy to meet.

    A great value for money and very nice atmosphere it was like a family guesthouse and the owner and his family are very great, kind and hospitable! The rooms are decorated with so much love and eye for the detail I really think its so beautiful there are so nice paintings on the walls and nice vintage things like an old soviet camera or an old radio in the room and the beds are so comfy and are equipped with a little curtain for total privacy! We felt super comfortable! Breakfast was amazing!!
