On this page, I’ll give some information on the places I’ve stayed while traveling.
Particularly around Asia, getting good accommodation can be a nightmare as everyone is trying to undersell everyone else, some are trying to rip you off and some are undiscovered gems. I’ve been lucky on my travels (to date), so I thought I’d put this page up for others’ use.
Note that my idea of “good enough” is if somewhere fulfills the following conditions:
- No threat to my health. This includes rampant insect infestation, slimy walls or furniture with huge nails sticking out
- Somewhere to wash that’s fitting for the surroundings. That is, if I’m paying $3 a night and the shower’s only lukewarm, but the ambient temperature is 30 degrees, that’s fine
- Secure. I can leave my things in my room and expect them to be there when I return, whether they’re on my bed (in a private room) or in a safe locker (in a dorm)
Bonuses include cleanliness (I’ll put up with “scruffy” but don’t want to have to ask the cockroaches to move over so I can get into bed), friendly staff and other extras. There’s no ratings scheme – I’ll just tell you what I thought about a place. Everyone has their own “scale” of what’s important, so just read and enjoy.
I hope you find this lot useful.
