Hostel Casa Vecchia – Brela, Croatia

Casa Veccchia is certainly the best hostel in Croatia. It’s located in Brela, on the main road, between Split and Makarska(50km from Split and 10km from Makarska). My rating for this hostel is a clean 100%.

First time I’ve stayed at Casa Vecchia was 5 years ago, just after it had opened. We were backpacking from Pula to Dubrovnik, along the seaside, and found this hostel by accident. We just wanted to stop for one night to take a shower and have a good sleep, but we’ve ended up staying for three nights. And it happened to be the best three days of our trip. Since then, every year we plan a 10days trip to Brela. read more

We found Pop Hostel  on HostelWorld.com.  We got convinced by the low price and the high rating( 77%) and we’ve booked a double room for three nights.  read more

Tryp Diana, Madrid – Hotel Review

Tryp Diana is a four stars hotel located near the Barajas Airport, Madrid.

Our experience with Tryp Diana Hotel was kind of limited:  check in, shower, sleep, check-out.  Our plane landed on Barajas Airport late at night(about 1.30 a.m.) and that’s why we decided to spent that night at a hotel near the airport. We’ve checked out at 10.00 a.m. read more

Venice Train Station

If you want to get in Venice by train, be sure to get off at the last train station: Venezia Santa Lucia.
Before Santa Lucia there’s another train station, Venezia Mestre(Mestre is a city  next to Venice – last stop on the mainland).

The tip: Don’t confuse Venezia Santa Lucia with Venezia Mestre.

Hungaria Guesthouse

UPDATE: Hungaria Guesthouse SUCKS

Hungaria Guesthouse” Hostel is the first and the only hostel I’ve stayed at in Budapest, Hungary.

We found this hostel on our first train trip around Europe( The InterRail Adventure), back in 2006.  Budapest was the first stop. Keleti train station.

Here is also where we first found out about the Tourist Information Desk.  We picked Hungaria GuestHouse from a long list of hostels. The guy at the desk called the hostel and we were all set.

We booked for 2nights, only 12Euros per night. read more

Visit Budapest in 2 days

The first stop of my  “InterRail adventure” was Budapest, the capital of Hungary.  An amazing city.

We got off the train(  Keleti train station ), we went to the “Tourist Information” desk and booked for two nights at Hungaria GuestHouse hostel, just a few blocks from the train station.  It was the perfect hostel: clean, quiet, friendly staff and only 12.5 Euros per night.

Two days are barely enough to see Budapest.  To get the best experience here’s my Budapest Sightseeing Guide: read more
