My two fav hostels are in South America- Florida Suites HI hostel in Buenos Aires and One Love Hostels in Rio de Janiero. Florida Suites is huge, right in the center of BA, and very friendly staff. One Love is just a chill place. A lot of cool activities and next to the beach.

Quoting Seany

[ Is Bulgaria any good? I planned to vist there with a few friends for a short break. Is it safe and is the beer cheap? The're still not on the Euro yet...?

I've been doing Eastern Europe for years and Bulgaria is as safe as anywhere really. There's not a country in the world that doesnt have its nasties, but Ive never been threatened in BG, or even felt intimidated.
Beer is around 40p a pint in the shops and cheap bars and around £2 a pint in the expensive parts.
Cheaper overal than Thailand and no, they aren't in the Eurozone yet, their currency is the Lev (plural Leva). It's around 1.95 Leva to the € and around 2.20 Leva to the £.
Freezing in winter and sultry hot in the summer.... Proper seasons. Officially the driest country in Europe and the 2nd most hours of sunshine after Romania.
Awesome beaches and some intersting bordering countries closeby, including Greece and Macedonia amongst several.

The YHA in Salisbury, England was awesome. It was really quiet, but well located. We got bumped up to a private room in the back guesthouse without even asking. Even though we only stayed two nights we really got to know the staff and some of the people staying there. It was definitely my favorite hostel on my month long trip the summer before last.

Thanks for the info BedouinLeo.. sounds very tempting to give it a try. Sounds crazy to compare Bulgaria prices to Thailand, buts thats the reality of it too. I'm up for checking it out some time.

On this occasion me and my buddy have opted to go to Sweden for a few days.. (Stockholm) hope to check out their nightlife...

Sweden - v - Bulgaria.
Same continent, but that's about it. A glass of beer in Sweden will be roughly about the same price as a crate of beer in Bulgaria. You'll probably get change for a few packets of peanuts too.
Enjoy Sweden though. I've been there many times and it is so beautiful. I think I'm right in saying that it has more lakes than in any other country. There's something like 90,000 of them.
Incidentally, a little well kept secret (until now).. One of the greatest cities for night life (as it seems you're into a bitta that) in the whole of Europe (East and West) is Belgrade. Cheap (and very good) beer there too.

I've been in Sydney Central Hostel and I think it's one of the best hostel that I've stayed. All fully furnished and have TV and fridge. Truly convenient and comfortable.

It's a toss up between the simple life (no longer as I knew it apparently) on Koh Tao in Thailand...gorgeous bar overlooking the beach with pool, cool films playing all night, quality tuna sandwiches...gorgeous.

Or the coffee shack on the Eastern Cape in S.A the guys there are all about the craic! bloody awesome atmosphere. :-)
