Places we stayed

Last Update 18 October 2006 | 0 Comments


Bangkok : Khoa San Palace
Not actually a palace but nice enough basic clean rooms and in the heart of everything.

Koh Phangan: Friendly Bungalows
Situated on in Had Rin on Sunset beach which is the quieter of the two beaches with the  full moon party held on sunrise beach but it is only a three minute walk. We got bungalow for six euro a night with the four of us sharing. Was clean with air con and had a veranda with hammock! Food was lovely there too

Koh Phi Phi: tropical garden bungalows
these were a bit of a trek from the ferry up in the hills but they had nice little personal touches including the friendly geckos in the bathroom. We paid 8 euro a night which has been most we paid, for double room with fan. But they do have a pool if the beach seems to far away and very strong cocktails.
(Generally Phi Phi is more expensive for accommodation) 

Siem Riep: 

Phnom Penh: Lakeside Guesthouse
Don't know if we'd go as far as recommending this place. Lorna and Grainne didn't actually stay here more then one night cos there was no air-con. But basically it's really cheap (only $2 p.n) and clean enough. What I would recommend is the area. It's a real backpacker set-up, tuk-tuks always on hand to bring you sight-seeing and it's good craic. Locals are lovely!!

Ho Chi Minh City: Hotel 211( 211 D Pham Ngu Lao)
This was a lovely hotel which was really central and had lovely clean air-conditioned rooms for reasonable price. Had to bargain a little to get these of course. Breakfast is included too - and it's actually more then just toast and butter! It's in LP too if you don't believe us!!

Na Thrang: 

Hanoi: Sunny Hotel

Really nice hotel, again right in the centre of the old quarter. Breakfast included along with free internet access on good comp's!! Rooms reasonable, air-con'd & clean. Only thing is they charged us tax when we were leaving. This didn't happen us anywhere else so make sure it's included in your agreed price before agreeing to stay unlike us eejits!!!




Cottsloe Perth: Ocean Beach Backpackers
Great location right on fab beach. and the famous Sunday sessions are great!

Perth, Northbridge: One World Backpackers
If you are going to stay in the city this place is a good location and not to 
expensive either. Very eco-friendly with free breakfast and a communal food section
if you are starving and broke.  Massive lounge with gigantic TV.  Laundry facilities 
include a clothes line so you don't have to tumble dry your clothes if you don't want to.

Adelaide: Central Adelaide YHA Hostel
Great place has everything you could want location, wonderful kitchen love it!
Melbourne: Friendly Hostel
Good location and free breakfast of tea/coffee and toast until 9am.  Really well run hostel with plenty of information on trips, free walking tour of the city on Mondays and half price tickets to AFL matches every Friday night.  
Downside: Loud tanoy system used to make general announcements from 8am (ish) onwards.        

Sydney: The Big Hostel                                                                   
This was the cheapest hostel we could find in Sydney.  Good location on Elizabeth street and by Central Station Free breakfast included again if you can get up before 9:30am. Internet cafe 50meters down the road which gives discounts to guests of Big Hostel making it $1.50 per hour to use the internet - good for Sydney!
Downside: Although it is called the Big Hostel it doesn't look big making it hard to find. We stayed in a shared dorm for 8 people of which one was a complete freak.
