Beautiful old home in old city. Very close to the fort. Good food in restaurant, though not always available (hours sometimes unpredictable).

Security was a bit of a concern. No locks on the doors and no keys for the lockers. Mysterious visitors opening door in middle of the night. Very new and clean facility. Staff friendly. Good wifi connection. But no towels.

Extremely helpful staff. Their advance booking service helped me secure advance tickets for a night bus. They also served a great breakfast, a combination of local and Western food.

This hostel was perfect for what I needed. Good internet connection, a location close to the beach cliff but quiet enough that I could get some planning done and make some advance reservations. The owner is friendly and helpful!

Nest Residence is one-of-a-kind. You have the experience of being a guest in a private home. The meals are amazing and the family who manages the property are gracious and extremely helpful in arranging excursions and transportation. Don't miss this place!!!

6th Oct 2017

Very pleasant place to stay. Spotlessly clean. Definite "Yoga/New Age" vibe but very friendly and tolerant even if you're not into that. Very close to the beach and very helpful in planning excursions such as whale-watching and surfing lessons.

An outstanding hostel! Not only were the facilities great, but the owners/partners were extremely helpful in planning not only sight-seeing in the immediate area, but throughout Sri Lanka and India! Very experienced, well-traveled proprietors! One of those gems you stumble upon while traveling.

Kiss Hostel, Split, Croatia

15th Jul 2016

Very cramped quarters in the dorms. Small common area. "Kitchen" is a closet with two refrigerators. Ran out of hot water when two people showering at same time. Overpriced for what you get, but it's Split so they can charge what they want.

Good place outside the Old City. Staff a bit distant and some things look like they're showing wear. No towels were offered. But staff made phone calls to arrange tours! No meals are offered, but kitchen is adequate. Parking was available at no charge.

A beautiful facility, well-maintained and super clean. A highlight is the breakfast included in the price of the room, made each morning and delivered to your table. Not an institutional or toast-and-jam basic minimum effort. It is different every morning ... pancakes one day, eggs the next, rice porridge after that ... and free (instant) coffee. Staff could sometimes have better information about buses, but overall one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at.

This a serviceable place with a great location. Staff not fluent in English, but put me in touch with a guest who could do some crucial communication for an upcoming lodging reservation. Some of the other information got lost in translation either from misunderstanding or carelessness. Could also mean staff is doing their best but overworked. Mixed experience but positive overall!

Leo Hostel, Beijing, China

21st Mar 2016

Leo Hostel is the classic hostel. Great facility, location and staff. They have great information, advice, structured tours -- everything to be as helpful as you need, but willing to let you do your own thing if that's what you prefer. I stayed with them 9 years previously en route to Tibet (for which they arranged permits), and didn't hesitate to lodge with them again on this trip.

Nicki's is an up-and-coming place. Brand new facility, very clean, comfortable and fun. Nicki is a wealth of information on the local sights (and doing them on a budget) and it's a great base from which to explore the entire Samana Peninsula, not just Las Terrenas.
