El Viajero Cartagena Hostel, Cartagena, Colombia
4.3
21st May 2016

This hostel is definately not worth the money-more $ than other nearby hostels. First, it is filthy and the floors in the bedrooms look as they have never been washed. There were dead roaches on the floor two days in a row. The sheets dont fit the beds and the mattresses smell like feet so the beds feel very unclean and the pillows are very lumpy. It is very large and there is no real communal space for people to hang out and meet each other - not great for the solo backpacker.

We're very sorry you didn't have a great time at the hostel, we'll keep improving so that the service keeps getting better. We'll review what happened with the housekeepers, although they keep cleaning everyday multiple times all of the hostel, we just have to keep in mind, that most of the floors are part of the historic charm that Cartagena has; we actually have 2 backyards and a bar in where we organized free daily activities so that people can meet up and have a good time

Artline Hostel Budapest, Budapest, Hungary

11th Aug 2015

It was about 100 degrees F when I was at Artline and while the facilities were nice enough they were not at all equipped for this type of heat. There was one fan for the whole facility. Even another fan or two would have made the stay more bearable. Otherwise nice facility.

This is pretty well located, within 10-15 minute walks of all the major sights of Florence. However, I did feel it was a little overpriced given that it isn't closer to everything. This hostel has a pool, which I didn't use, but is a cool feature. There is only the restaurant and bar as a common space though and not so much a lounge which made it more difficult to meet people.

Dubrovnik Backpackers Club, Dubrovnik, Croatia

This is a family run hostel and the mother actually feels like your mother figure in Dubrovnik - she cooks an exceptional breakfast and is always there to answer questions. This hostel is a located a little outside of the old city but is easily accessible by a bus that runs every 15 minutes and takes 10 minutes into town. The location isn't a problem and it allows for a lower price than the hostels closer to the city which is greatly appreciated. They also run their own tours which gives persona

Beach Hostel, Split, Croatia

1st May 2014

This hostel feels like a home for travelers. It is small and there is a central living room, porch, and kitchen area where everyone in the hostel seemed to hang out which quickly turned into everyone being friends.

Smart City Hostel by Safestay, Edinburgh, Scotland

This is a big hostel so lacking in some charm that smaller hostels may have but as far as huge hostels go this is a good one. It was very clean and the bar and restaurant area are really nice. It is also located right in the middle of the old town, one block form the main sights of the city.

Wombats City Hostel Berlin, Berlin, Germany

12th Apr 2014

Wombats was clean, friendly, quiet enough or at least the rooms themselves kept the noise down and the bar on the roof had a good atmosphere and nice specials. Wasn't hard to meet other travelers

Backpackers-Duesseldorf, Dusseldorf, Germany

10th Apr 2014

This was a fine hostel but had a funky atmosphere, which may also be due to Dusseldorf - not exactly a stop on the backpacker trail so it did not feel like a place to hang out but the facilities were plenty fine and convenient enough by public transit to the bus station

At Baan Khun Hostel, Chiang Mai, Thailand
9.4
23rd Feb 2014

This is a great hostel in Chiang Mai. I kept bouncing back to Chiang Mai while traveling around the region and would use this hostel as my home base because it always felt comfortable and clean and had a great atmosphere to meet other travelers. The common spaces and the roof are very nice and many people hanging out in them made it easy to meet other travelers. You can book (overpriced) tours from the lobby, which is convenient, even if you can also find these tours elsewhere.
