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...

The Location Surf Riders is located outside of the city center of Corralejo, about a ten-minute walk from the ocean. It is located very close to the city's largest grocery store as well as re...


Kasbah Red Castle Hostel is a good hostel for the price. Staff or the owner will send you an elaborate email with plenty of info and contact info for your convenience. Beds are comfortable and warm. Simple bread and jam breakfast is served at 8 a.m., and tea is mostly available throughout the day. The Location This hostel is easily reached from airport; if you're feeling up to it, it is onl...


Hostel Terra Vista is a classic example of a place that wasn't built to be a hostel, but rather was forced into being one. It's basically a guesthouse that offers shared rooms to attract backpackers, and there are many of those in town. That being said, if all you need is a clean bed and a warm place for the night, this hostel gets the job done. The Location Hostel Terra Vista has one of th...


Chambers of the Boheme has such huge potential, as it is set in a very unique little building that feels like grandma's house, with an antique look and feel to it, so we thought we were in for a treat. However, we were a bit disappointed when we came and saw that the building is pretty cold, dark, not very tidy, and generally in not-great shape. The Location The location is really fantastic...


Hostel Chillsteps is not a hostel -- it's so much better! It's like staying over at your cool cousin's place! Jeff, the owner; his wife Eda; and their two fluffy and playful pets made our short stay so unforgettable! We love this place. The Location The hostel is located in a quiet suburb north of downtown Fethiye, close to Calis Beach, which is actually closer to the airport if you're flyin...
