Located a short walk from the busy Seminyak Square, Cozy Bobo is a fantastic place to stay during your time in Seminyak. We stopped in Seminyak over night after leaving Kuta to check out the surf. It takes around 10 minutes to walk on down to the beach where you can relax and surf all day long.

TRAVEL - Reggae Mansion Review, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

If you're still looking for the best place to stay in the bewildering Kuala Lumpur, you can stop after reading this post!
Malaysia's capitol Kuala Lumpur is one of Southeast Asia's favourite spot for backpackers all over the globe (and that's probably how you're reading this post right now.) With a bucket full of attractions and experiences there's something for everyone - the fact that is very affordable helps to drive tourism within the city and has plenty to offer regardless of your budget.


Address: Map Travelodge(TRAVEL BUNKER), Tanah Rata, 39000 Tanah Rata, Pahang, Malaysia.

We're slowly making our way down to Malaysia's capitol Kuala Lumpur, but decided to stop along our route from Penang at the famous Cameron Highlands. Named after the explorer Sir William Cameron, and known for being the largest hill-stationed area in Malaysia and famous for it's tea plantations we just couldn't miss this place out. Specially after our visit to Jim Thompson's house in Bangkok (for those that don't know, he's the man who saved the Thai silk business, and went missing in the Cameron Highlands)

We found a perfect, unique hostel in the center of town called Map Travelodge. By far one of the best hostels you could wish for in the Cameron Highlands. We were welcomed in with open arms and big smiley faces which mafe us feel right at home straight away.  The location is great, we are right by a few bars, 7 eleven, food court and only a 10 minute walk away from the famous Route 10 hike through the jungle. 


If you’re heading to Malaysia on your trip around Asia, do not miss the stunning Penang Island. Known as the Pearl of the Orient, Penang has buckets of charm and has become a hit with backpackers to relax and take in this little gem of culture. Penang is the first stop of our trip through Malaysia. We didn’t research Penang before hand, just picked the name off our map and made our way - but I’m so glad we stumbled upon this quirky place! We originally were going to spend 2 nights here in Georgetown, but loved it so much we stayed another day and still didn’t get to do everything we wanted. But here’s a list of the BEST things to see and do in Georgetown, Penang.

TRAVEL - Whitewall Poshtel, Phuket, Thailand - Review

White Wall Poshtel 
Thaland Road, Amphoe Mueang Phuket, Chang Wat Phuket, 83000, Thailand.

During our trip in Phuket we were very fortunate to work with White Wall Poshtel. This is the first Poshtel we've experience during our trip around Asia and it did not disappoint.White Wall Poshtel is exactly that, Bright, Clean and pretty posh! 

White Wall Poshtel is located within a 2 minute walk of Phuket Town, making it the ideal place for you to stay if you want a real experience of Phuket. It's easy to reach bars, restaurants, the shopping center anything else you could possibly need during your stay - but also located in a small side street making sure you have an undisturbed sleep. Once arriving at the Poshtel you can see why it has a very high 9.8 rating on 

The architecture really makes the building stand out compared to other hostels in the area. The giant, deep blue doors draw your attention. Once inside the main lobby, It's very bright and clean - with the reception desk and large fish tank to the right, chill out area and best pool table in Thailand to the left. The lobby also doubles up as the breakfast area - it's the best place to meet the other guests and lounge around the poshtel.

During our stay we had two separate beds in one of the 12 bed dorms. Although, once inside your bed you wouldn't think you were in a dorm. The beds were unbelievably comfortable and the duvet made us feel right at home. Each bed came with it's own under bed storage, reading light, plug socket and thick privacy curtain that completely blacked out the area making it easy to fall asleep. 
For those that don't want to stay in a large dorm - not a problem at all. They also offer 8 bed dooms, double room and even a triple room (one double bed, one single top bunk). 

The rooms are minimal and simplistic with natural light coming in from the large windows at the front of the building to save you having to use the lights included in the room. The rooms all come with A/C and each floor has a bathroom, bottom floor is shared, middle floor is ladies and top floor is mens. 

The bathrooms again are very clean and modern, with western toilets for those who were wondering - every time I went to the bathroom and shower area someone would come in straight after to clean which I found preferable. The bathrooms were decorated with the same royal blue accent walls and cubicle doors, concrete units and bright white basins. The showers included a perfect waterfall shower head (my favourite) aswell as shampoo and shower gel so you don't need to sorry about forgetting yours. (and the shampoo made my hair smell amazing for days.) Towels are available for 30 baht each and the showers were always hot and pretty powerful.

Breakfast is served between 7am - 10am which was perfect for us late risers and even better was that it was included with the room, meaning you don't have to spend any more money. Breakfast included toast, eggs, bananas, snacks along with tea and coffee. There's plenty of room around the table for everyone and if you've finished your food but you're still hungry just simply asked for some more and they'll happily make some more.  

(these chill out mats get a special mention because it's made using Jim Thompson silk!!)

The staff were very friendly, we loved the owner Ping and his partner - nothing was every too much for them and they gave us the best recommendations for our short stay. Ping is also very modest, but very good at pool - so make sure you get a few games in. 

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with the team at White Wall Hostel - everything was exceptional. The building, common areas, room and staff were the best we'd experience in Thailand and would highly recommend staying here. with prices starting at £6 a night (including the breakfast!) you'd be mad to miss you.

You can book your stay over at their Booking page to guarantee the best price. If you book your stay using THIS LINK you will receive 10% off your trip (and I'll get a little spending money to carry on writing these reviews for you!)
