Ended up staying here for just over 2 weeks!! Ideal location, 10 min walk to night bazaar. Pool is perfect for relaxing every day, beds in dorm are very private with curtains, air con is perfect. Big bathroom with clean shower, free breakfast. Highlight of my stay was the lady working in the cafe by reception, such a sweet lady. Not a very social hostel but perfect if you’re looking for someplace quiet to chill out by yourself, my 6 months of travelling are winding down so exactly what i needed!

Perfect if you have an early flight next morning. Hostel is literally as the name points out. Everyone in our dorm happened to be getting on the same flight. Nice little rooftop seating area upstairs but literally it’s just a hostel to stay in before a flight as it’s about 15 mins away! Did the job.

Moalboal Backpacker Lodge, Cebu, Philippines

23rd May 2018

In relation to friendly staff, this has been one of the best hostels in the Philippines. Honestly-they are some of the nicest, friendliest people ever! Free water refills. Location is ideal, 2 minute walk to the beach for the most amazing snorkelling ever (so many turtles) cons: really hot to sleep in at night due to rooms only having a couple of fans; no aircon. Dorms are quite open so can be noisy if you’re a light sleeper! Other than a lack of sleep for the 4 nights here, I would stay again!

Perfect if you just want someplace to relax by the beach. Pool could do with a cleaning, full of dead flies but idea to cool off in I guess when it gets so hot. Great sunsets, 10 min walk from monkey business bar and restaraunt! Not much else within walking distance so if you’d need to rent a bike to get anywhere. Dorm was fan only so extremely hot at night. Shower had literally no water pressure, couple of cockroaches in the bathrooms but aside from this, staff were nice and food wasn’t bad!

Noordzee Hostel, Cebu, Philippines

11th May 2018

Such a beautiful hostel, booked for 4 nights in one of the Deluxe balcony rooms - so amazing! Location right on the beach, literally did nothing else here but sunbathe and relax. It’s perfect & staff are very friendly. Only cons are food & drinks on the expensive side but really tasty - western dishes. I would suggest for them to install a few fans in dining area and by the beach bar too as it can get really hot! Can snorkel right from the beach.

Booked a private room last minute due to food poisoning(not from here) expensive if your not sharing the room but room itself is just fab. Large 4 poster bed, complimentary bottles of water, towels & great ensuite bathroom & shower with hot water. Staff are lovely & helpful, help with onward travel & can rent bikes here which you will need to get around if you want to explore the area. Beautiful location right in the heart of the views. Not a social place but perfect if you just want to chill.

Stayed here for 3 nights - such a gem of a hostel. Literally 5/10 min walk from center of the Old Town. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Not a major party hostel but they organise a daily/nightly free event that gets everyone together so it’s very easy to meet people if you are a solo traveller! Did the street food tour which was great - shout out to our guide Spring - the sweetest, cutest staff member ever!

Billabong Hostel Phnom Penh, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
8.9
23rd Mar 2018

Stayed here two separate times! Billabong is the perfect place to chill out if you’re either coming from or going to a party hostel elsewhere! It’s more like a hotel than hostel. Extremely clean, bunks are huge with lockers underneath large enough to store your backpack. Really nice pool & they do a tour everyday to the killing fields. Not a place for meeting people if you’re a solo traveller but if you want a quiet night to yourself and some downtime then it’s perfect!

Stayed here for 4 nights & cannot put into words how amazing this place is. Literally paradise on its own little secluded island. Nice mix of Khmer & Western staff who are just fab. Something new happening every night & because there’s no WiFi or phone service, you have no choice but to socialise which is the best part! Met some absolutely amazing people here & it’s honestly been my favourite hostel in SE Asia so far!!! Don’t think about it - just book! Give yourself at least 2/3 days!! Enjoy!!

The Hideout, Siem Reap, Cambodia
7.4
8th Mar 2018

Came to hideout expecting there to be a mixture of both party as well as chill based on past review - but it was just chill. I think this hostel used to be a party hostel that did pub crawls and events etc but has definitely changed in recent times. Really great pool and dorms are clean but there’s not much of a social atmosphere at all. When I stayed here it was mostly groups and couples which was a bit unlucky as I’m a solo traveller. Still enjoyed it but missed the social side to it!

Kokotel Phuket Patong, Phuket, Thailand

4th Mar 2018

Stayed here 4 nights for some well needed downtime after Phi Phi! Cleanest hostel/hotel, comfy beds, super clean rooms and lockers for your valuables! 2 minute walk from patong beach & about 10 mins to Bangla Rd. no social vibe whatsoever, it’s more of a hotel. However I did meet some amazing people by the pool on my last day! Anywhere can be social depending on how outgoing you are ☺️

Slumber Party Ao Nang Beach, Krabi, Thailand

27th Feb 2018

Stayed here for 2 nights & couldn’t have asked for better. From the moment you arrive, you are welcomed straight away by the friendly staff. Although it’s a party hostel, rooms are still really quiet so it’s ideal if you want to rest or mend your hangover! Extremely clean dorms & bunks with curtains which were a plus! Definitely do the pub crawl - best way to meet loads of people, especially if you’re a solo travel! It’s going to be a hard hostel to beat as I continue to travel around SE Asia!
