I'm a newbie here but i figured I would at least list some sites that people should stay away from.
Apologies if this is the wrong place for this post.

1. 5 Jelly VPS - This has to be the worst of them all. Whatever you do, don't try to register. A joke of a site
2. Heliohost - Absolutely terrible. Read their support forum. Nothing but upset customers, sites always crashing
3. YoCats - If you register you cannot do anything as they never send you an account activation link.
4. GratisVPS - They don't require registration but want you to fill out surveys
5. GuHat - A clone of 5 Jelly VPS. Whatever you do, don't try to register. A joke of a site

As I come across more I will add them to the list.

Thank you - this will be useful for a lot of people, we might eventually make a sticky post about this.
An updated list:
AVOID THESE (0 stars: these are all scams, trust -50 or worse, rating 0 or worse)
1. 5 Jelly VPS - This has to be the worst of them all. Whatever you do, don't try to register. A joke of a site
[depends on server] 2. Heliohost - Absolutely terrible. Read their support forum. Nothing but upset customers, sites always crashing
3. YoCats - If you register you cannot do anything as they never send you an account activation link.
4. GratisVPS - They don't require registration but want you to fill out surveys
5. GuHat - A clone of 5 Jelly VPS. Whatever you do, don't try to register. A joke of a site.
6. SubNetWeb - avoid.
BE CAUTIOUS WITH THESE (2-3.5 stars, rating points on scam meter: 10-50 and trust above 20):
1. Haphost - be careful or they might make an SSD failure (got backups?)
2. Host4Post.eu - haven't tried but some say suspended for no reason (got TOS?)
3. http://workin.ga from [email protected] - claims to offer free VPS, might move to scam if confirmed.
USE THESE (3.0-5.0 stars, rating points 35+ and trust above 30)
1. FreeDomain Club - right! It's here: domains and free VPS (512mb ram)
2. FreeVPS.US - classic and reliable, many happy users
Updated above list with Ronsor. Co-incides with my experiences. Stickied thread.
1. I don't recommend Hap Host and the other free hosting that you named because you can wait weeks to months before they actually reply to your VPS / Web-hosting package request and most of the times the answer is no and that clearly means that you've waited for nothing. So 3Jelly and Hap Host is not adviced at all.

2. I don't recommend hosting(s) that requires surveys. I don't personally trust survey hosting and I'm sure nobody does here because most of the times you get the bill and be left with nothing.
I will say my vps from haphost has been fine
I think you should move SubNetWeb from your trusted list
Reason : http://freevps.us/thread-14918.html
Also, You might want to talk to me about Host4Post problems, I'm a moderator there and got personal contact with Areeb.
I will talk to him about your problems happily.
Kind Regards.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
Add http://vps.me to the list of boardline scams. They never send you the SMS to your phone.

They actually do send verification codes however, They send it only to few countries (Probably high tiers countries)
I've plenty of people I know who picked up some VPS's from it and reported them working fine.
Same with Haphost, I'm using their vps for 3 months now and It's all fine so far!
