I thought the staff were friendly and welcoming. I liked the tour of the hostel and the map/travel advice I was given when I arrived. The communal areas including the bathroom in the bedroom was kept clean by the staff to a high standard. Their effort in organising social events was appreciated. In my opinion the bedrooms are too small to accommodate 6 beds. There is too little space for everybody's luggage and also no table.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were very clean, the staff was excellent, and the location was perfect. We were here for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer! The hostel is located in the middle of everything, making it super easy to get around!

Lovely hostel, well located next to some really cool areas. Great roof terrace and great breakfast! Two minor things to note; the rooms could do with a bit better air circulation and the Wifi is pretty bad, it's always losing signal. Definitely worth a stay!

Overall, the stay was pleasant. Clean rooms and private bathroom (shared by 6) what more can you ask for? Best for a group of 6 but if you're in a couple, hopefully no one occupies the toilet for too long. the public spaces they have is amazing- a rooftop

A very clean and friendly hostel offering some activities for the travellers. I really enjoyed my stay there and would book it again. It is conviently located and the city's attraction could be reached easily. The only downturns are luxurious problems, like the slow internet (but hey I am on vacation) and that there were no shelves at the bunk beds along with not a proper storage place for the luggage in the room. :-)

Planet traveler is one of the best hostels I have stayed at in years. With the exception of the rooms being so small you can barely open your suitcase, I have no complaints. Super clean, really nice staff, a good atmosphere, late checkout, wifi that actually works everywhere, phones that you can use for free to make local calls and breakfast that runs until 1pm.

I really liked my stay at the Planet Traveler. The staff makes a great job and especially the roof terrace is awesome. The pub crawl and the BBQ are great! It's not worth to reduce the rating, but the beds are really loud. Maybe some oil could help.

The Hostel is very good but there are things that could be improved. For Example the floors in the hole Hostel could be cleaner and our bedsheets were dirty and had some holes.

This is a good hostel. Very clean and good atmosphere. But not the best location as quite far from subways and the bus station.

The hostel itself was very nice and the staff quite attentive and helpful. The drawback for us was the room we had. We were located right on the street and with people standing outside talking until the early morning it was difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep! If you are not a late owl I would highly recommend getting a room in the interior of the hostel otherwise you won't get much sleep :(
