The Backpackers Ultimate Guide

More detailed reviews of more hostels than any other travel guide

Other 'budget' travel guides cater to everyone and include information on motels. hotels and five-star resorts, which results in a big fat guidebook with very little information for genuine budget travellers.

BUG's hostel reviews feature our exclusive star rating system that makes it easy to find a great hostel at a glance.
