Staying at the Hostel International locations is like joining freind (to be made) at a self service lodge. I like this better than a hotel room for an overnight stay in my travels. Amanda, one of the guests, even changed bunks with me, for the one night, as it was too hard for me to get into my bunk and she drove me to the airport at 6am the next morning. Everyone staying there is always friendly..I was offered a hotel room at an exhorbitant rate and said no, I will book a room at the Hostel.

I miss my digital luggage scale. I dont know where is it? The laundry was bissy bat the clothes was not in the cleaningprocess. The absolutly no go was, that the shoes must standing outsode the house. My shoes was permanently wet in- and outside. The shoes in the house was strictly prohibitet. The rooms are a litle bit small. The baggages are during blocked the way.

We're sorry that you found your stay less than ideal, and thank you for your feedback. We do have three bathroom scales available for guests to weigh their luggage, and if there is ever anything you can't find, just ask a staff member. We're here to help! Also, we don't allow shoes to be worn in the house as it keeps things much cleaner, but as stated in our check in rules, you are more than welcome to carry them with you up to your room. We wish you safe and happy travels in the future!

I really hope Spenard is the rule rather than the exception when it comes to hostels. For my first time staying in a hostel, this was a fantastic experience.

Amazing, super friendly staff that make you feel right at home, free tea, coffee and hot chocolate all day, cheap bike rentals. A bit far out of town, but close to the airport and right on the bus line into town. Also not far from the coastal trail.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay! While we are not downtown, we are just a 10 minute bus ride away. We love being in the trendy Spenard neighborhood--great restaurants, bars, live music, grocery store, and outdoor gear shops all within walking distance, and easy access to nature via the coastal trail. Safe travels!
