Thanks for an adventure-filled first year, travellers! In the past year, you all have written reviews for some of your favorite hot spots, events, things to do, and more. To celebrate our first birthday, we’ve compiled a list of the most popular places on the app for each category, and what you had to say about them! Check them out!
ACCOMMODATION: WAKE UP! SYDNEY
Wake Up! Sydney is in an ideal location to fully experience the excitement of Sydney. It is a big (and notably clean – winning) hostel, but inviting for all travellers – solo or groups. And under the building is the Side Bar, which host plenty of events for travellers to meet each other. What more could you ask for?
NIGHTLIFE: REVOLVER UPSTAIRS
If you are looking to have a big night full of DJs, dancing, drinks and more, head straight to Revolver Upstairs (Revs). During the week it is a bar and Vietnamese restaurant, but that all changes once the weekend starts. It’s a solid choice if you’re leaving a bar at 2am looking for a bit more. Have fun!
THINGS TO DO: SAGRADA FAMILIA

Antoni Gaudí has notably made areas of Barcelona his architectural canvas. After you’ve roamed around Park Güell, make your way to Sagrada Família. It may be under construction, but the church itself is a masterpiece, only rivaled by its interior filled with multicolor stained glass – Insta-worthy for sure.
Queenstown, New Zealand
Fergburger, the famous burger joint serving up an inventive menu. If you’re in Queenstown, be sure to stop by, queue up, and enjoy an original Fergburger, a Cockadoodle Oink or any of their other unique burgers they have to offer.
FITNESS: BONDI TO COOGEE WALK
Sydney boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia, and this 6km coastal walk has become famous for showcasing the best oceanside views between Bondi Beach and Coogee Beach. Start in Bondi or start in Coogee, but definitely put aside a couple hours to enjoy this walk – a bit of a workout that you’ll thoroughly enjoy!
