Why do we do this?

We work in the area helping travelers plan their adventures.

We have noticed that backpackers had no easy way to browse and select the perfect place to stay while visiting the area.

Given the huge numbers of backpackers hostels in the area, that can get confusing, and many people end up staying in places that don’t suit them well.

This site evolved with the intent of helping backpackers find the hostel that suits them best, and get the most out of their visit to the region..
