Cinema Riad is one of the few -- if not the only -- hostel-type accommodation in the Ouarzazate area. It offers a pleasant welcoming stay outside of Ouarzazate in a not often touristically visited area. Staff are welcoming and very helpful. The Location This hostel is actually located in a town called Tabount, just a literal bridge away from Ouarzazate. It is still easily reached from the Ga...


Riad Dia is a busy hostel with a typical single traveler/backpacker atmosphere. The dorm rooms are set for many people (maybe too many). The common areas are where you’ll spend most of your hostel time. The cheap price includes a simple breakfast and as much tea as you want during your stay. The Location This hostel is centrally set, very close to Marrakech's iconic Koutoubia Mosque and Jema...

Downtown Fethiye Hostel & Rooms hostel is a pretty good choice in town; it's probably the cheapest one, and yet for the price you pay, you get a pretty good deal. The Location The location of the hostel is fantastic, it's right at the center, with pretty much everything important within walking distance, such as the Lychian tombs, the waterfront, the fish market, and the bus station. It does...


What can we say -- Second Home Hostel is definitely one of our favorite places to stay in Istanbul. The name doesn't lie, it feels just like a second home should, and from the minute we stepped in we were treated with such warmth! The Location The hostel is located in the Old Town, almost in the center of all the tourist attractions, but far enough from the very annoying gift shops and overp...


De Cameron Guest House is a guesthouse run by a local Indian family. The hostel owners are friendly to their guests, but are of little help when asked about tourist recommendations in the area. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the entire compound. The Location The hostel is conveniently located opposite the main Tanah Rata Bus Station, where all long distances or local buses depart and arrive....


Saltwater Lodge Backpackers in Paihia is a medium-sized hostel in the beachside town of Pahia. It is the closest hostel to the waterfront, only a few meters away from the beach. The hostel offers travel advice as well as tour bookings, sometimes even special deals, for the area. The Location The hostel has a really good location in what seems to be the backpacker street of the town. It is v...


WaterBorn Bali is a phenomenal hostel if you're willing to pay a bit more than the average hostel in Canggu. There is a free breakfast in the morning, which can make up the extra few dollars you pay for the hostel. The staff are quite nice, and the owner makes regular visits to check on how people are doing and who is staying at the hostel. There is a very low maximum capacity, so it is very easy...


Funky Fes is a colorful, atmospheric hostel that is mostly managed by volunteer travelers in contrast to many other hostels in Fès, Morocco. They are very accommodative in helping with organizing trips or just in helping the more independent traveler with their plans. It is lively and nicely decorated, and a great place to relax, socialize, or maybe have a small party. The Location As it's...
