Casa d'Alagoa

Faro, Portugal
100%

Wonderful hostel! Fabulous location, amazing staff, friendly and communal atmosphere, 2 outdoor patios to eat or socialize in, full kitchen with option to buy their very nice breakfast and dinner. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm with non-squeaky wooden bunk beds, enough space, individual lights, and lockable wooden chests instead of lockers. They also have lots of bikes to rent! Good wifi.

Thank you so much for your great comment. Your description of the house is amazing :-D We have designed and built the beds ourselves as all the renovation of this more than 2 century old house. Just one small correction... our breakfast is free :-). It was great having you around the house. We hope to see you very soon

Cloud 9 Hostel

Lagos, Portugal
94%

Great location and very friendly, helpful staff. Had a 4 bed dorm that was spacious, ensuite, with big lockers but it was on the ground floor and the window opened onto the pedestrian street so no privacy or security (no screen or bars). There was a full kitchen and cozy common area that opened on to a terrace overlooking the Old Town. There's also a roof terrace. Two computers available. Be aware that gulls screech at 6:30 every morning (not just at the hostel) so ear plugs may be a good idea.


Goodnight Lisbon Hostel

Lisbon, Portugal
91%

Convenient location near metro, Aerobus 1 stop and Rossio Square. Lots of nearby restaurants. Staff was helpful and friendly. The kitchen, dining area and lounge were all small but had the necessaries. The 8 bed female dorm was in the attic essentially--the 6th floor (common area was on 2nd). The metal bunk beds (wiggle and creak) were crammed together. Good lockers but crammed between beds; no tables or chairs. Narrow stairs and low ceiling to enter the room. No wifi in room.

Great location. A busy hostel, constant checking in and outs. The stored luggage area has lockers--good cuz anyone can get the 2 keys to the storage area. The hotel offers dinner so you can't use the kitchen from 6:30 - 10PM--and there is no fridge for hostelers' use (but they did store my yogurts in the bar fridge!). The 12 bed female dorm had 1 small window, was dirty, did have lockers but no tables or chairs, and only 1 bathroom (toilet, basin & shower in one room) which was wet and dirty.


Patio Hostel

Bratislava, Slovakia
94%

Very convenient location for Old Town sights; very friendly, helpful staff. The dorm room was spacious with large lockers, even a small table and chair to go with each bed (singles, not bunks!) Each floor had its own small kitchen (so the fridge wasn't overstuffed!) but the narrow table barely had room for one person to eat, much less two. There is a small outdoor patio. The hostel is offset from the street so it is quiet (it's easy to miss the entrance from the street--through a "tunnel").


Hostel Erottajanpuisto

Helsinki, Finland
97%

Well located hostel, up 2 flights of stairs. The common area is the kitchen/dining area--bright & spacious except when the hostel is full. Most people go out to eat so 1 fridge and limited storage space works. Staff were very helpful; there were free maps and brochures. The dorm rooms were spacious and the bunks were comfortable and not too squeaky. The only strange thing was the lockers--it looks like they can be locked but they can't. Good wifi; 1 computer to use. Only 1 key per room.


Comrade Hostel

Moscow, Russia
94%

Conveniently located to metro and walking distance to Red Square, etc. Full kitchen, good wifi plus a computer to use, in old building (walk up 3 flights) but very modern inside. We had a large comfortable private room (not ensuite but there are 4 nice full toilet/shower rooms). They let us store our bag overnight. The only drawback if you have a street window is the cars that race during the wee hours. Staff had limited English but enough to get by.


Pink Manila Hostel

Manila, Philippines
83%

Nice hostel, well located near an LRT/metro station. I arrived at 1 am--the night security guard signed me in then I took the lift to the 5th floor to the hostel reception, lounge, kitchen area which was still quite active. The staff then and later couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. My 6 bed mixed dorm was spacious, the bunk beds didn't squeak, there was a private shower/toilet for the room and lockable lockers for luggage. The air con worked well and was quiet. Good value.

Great hostel. Closer to the center of things than it appears on the map. Helpful, friendly staff, huge and well stocked kitchen, large patio area for eating and hanging out in the sun, huge dorm rooms. It's Scandanavian modern and very large so feels somewhat institutional. The bunk beds were good; however, there didn't appear to be any way to lock the large lockers in the dorm--and the windows didn't open very wide so it was hot on a warm summer night. Supermarket and ice cream shop very close.


Copenhagen Downtown Hostel

Copenhagen, Denmark
89%

A huge and hopping place. Conveniently located to see the sights; a healthy walk to the train station. Dorm beds good but room a bit small with shelves but no lockers. Key card. Can store luggage in lockers in the basement but it costs 30 kr (for 1 hour or your full stay). Great breakfast buffet to buy; very small kitchen. Not nearly enough toilets and showers in the busy summer. Friendly, helpful staff. 3 iPads to use if you don't have own device. Big area to hang out downstairs.


Hotel Nebo Copenhagen

Copenhagen, Denmark
80%

This hotel couldn't be closer to the train station if it tied. Breakfast option. Big room. Big bright window but on a warm night it must be open and it's a kind of noisy neighborhood. Nice staff. Storage room is not secure. One free, stand up computer in the lobby. Great place to spend one night and needing the train station either early or late. There's a 7-11 on the corner.


Pickwick Hall

London, England
91%

An unexpectedly inexpensive place in a nice neighbourhood. A bit of a walk from the tube station if you've got heavy luggage but not bad, and walking distance to Covent Gardens. Breakfast available. Nice sitting room and computer--but it is locked about 11 PM. My partner only arrived about 1 AM so the owners gave me the remote to let him in the front door--they were very helpful. The room was big with a huge bright window, which had to be open on an unusually warm night.


Villa Micika

Dubrovnik, Croatia
77%

Located in nice neighborhood with shopping center close but hefty walk from ferry/bus or Old Town. Dorm room is in well lit basement of historic house--but modern and comfort w/ TV and kitchenette. Other rooms in newer building. Lovely garden to relax in. Apparently 15 min walk to beach for swim or sunset. I arrived about 7pm and had to call the owner who called a neighbor to come check me in--I left early so never saw staff. But it was great for 1 night--everything I needed and it all worked.


Family Glavinic

Dubrovnik, Croatia
83%

This is a family home--we simply got one big room and bathroom. Nice family--gave us directions and other help, let us put yogurt in their fridge but we had no access to kitchen. A pleasant walk to swimming to Old Town and a bit more to the ferry/bus. Little patio to sit in. Quiet neighborhood. A few small shops nearby. Convenient for a night or two in Dubrovnik.


Old Town Hostel East Wing

Kotor, Montenegro
91%

Hopping hostel in the Old Town although our unit was in a separate (and quieter) building. Good room with a full kitchen downstairs so we ate in and saved money. Didn't have to pay the 3 euros to climb up to the Citadel because the building was part way up the steps! Great being located within the walls of the Old Town. Plenty of restaurants and little shops. Near the port, walking distance to the swimming beach and to a supermarket. Staff was helpful but very busy.


Hostel City Center Sarajevo

Sarajevo, Bosnia And Herzegovina
97%

Great hostel: extremely helpful and friendly staff 24/7, perfect location for seeing the sights though a long walk from the train/bus station, good wifi & 3 laptops available in the lounge, small but good kitchen, breakfast available, sturdy bunkbeds & decent sized lockers in dorm rooms. My room faced an inner courtyard so was quiet but the outside rooms are above several pubs--but maybe the noise doesnt carry up the 3 floors--lots of stairs keeps you fit as there's no lift option! Can open the


Day and Night Hostel

Zagreb, Croatia
80%

Walking distance to all the central sights of Zagreb. The main hostel had 2 computers and wifi plus a rather dark lounge but a big kitchen. we were across the street in another building, through a gate. We had a huge room and bathroom. We shared a small kitchen with one other room. Staff were friendly and helpful.


Shanti-Hostel

Skopje, Macedonia
89%

I really enjoyed the friendly and helpful staff. The bunkbeds were comfortable and sturdy so n squeaking beds! My shared room had a big balcony to hang out on but there is a downstairs couurtyard. Nice breakfast included. Excellent location just 5 minutes walk from the bus/train station.


Residencia Eixample

Barcelona, Spain
77%

We had to catch an early plane and just stayed here overnight but it suited our purposes and was only a 15 minute walk from Sants Station. Friendly, helpful staff, wifi, 2 computers, numerous and clean shared toilets and showers. We had inside window, fairly quiet, but no fan or a/c so could be hot in mid-summer. Non-touristy neighborhood. Great place for a short stay.


Hotel Xalet Verdu

Arinsal, Andorra
80%

Above average hostelworld stay for us--proper hotel, Good breakfast included, well located for our hike from Arinsal, lots of restaurants nearby. Helpful staff, wifi but the computer in the lobby was extremely expensive. Frequent buses stopped nearby to get to other parts of Andorra. Beautiful setting but pool only filled in mid-June with freezing mountain water so we couldn't swim as hoped.


Pensi�n Luis

Barcelona, Spain
83%

Finding an inexpensive room near La Rambla is challenging. Pension Luis is well located and has all the basics that you need: wifi, 1 computer, good security from outside, a small kitchen, rooms with ensuite bathrooms, soap and towel supplied. But it won't win awards for interior decoration/atmosphere. If you don't need luxury, this place is great as Luis is extremely helpful and willing. BTW look for street number as there's no Pension Luis sign. Also, interior window rooms can be quite noisy.


Travellers Inn

Mumbai, India
83%

Cheap, simple, convenient location for walking around the tourist sites of Mumbai. Typical firm, thin mattress, TV with just Indian stations, one computer available, wifi available but only right next to that computer, hot water if you know to turn the switch on outside your room door (!), friendly enough, in real neighborhood. Great location for getting to know Mumbai on foot (or autorickshaw). Good value for money.


Hostal El Triunfo

Cusco, Peru
93%

We stayed here 3 times between trips in and out of Cusco. The hotel is 1/2 block from the Plaza de Armas so ideally located (but it's easy to miss the entrance!). We stored our bags between trips, there was hot water, it was quiet and clean (with nice towels), one decent speed computer in the breakfast area, and the best breakfast in Cusco (for the price of the room) including fresh squeezed juice! The staff were friendly and helpful although some had limited English.


Jacaranda Inn Hostel

Cusco, Peru
90%

My second stay here (got a towel this time!) Room on the 3rd floor, clean, spacious with tiny but clean shared bathroom just outside my door (good hot water). Only a skylight in my room but the corridor and balcony are bright, with view of Cusco rooftops. Very creaky floor--could hear every movement in next room.


Cruz de los Andes

La Paz, Bolivia
90%

Very well located. Nice breakfast buffet, good towels, and 3 computers in lobby where you can meet fellow travellers. Otherwise more hotel than hostel. Apparently wifi was down for 2 days but then it was back with good service. Staff helpful in calling taxi to airport and answering questions. I had an inside room with window to the central shaft so no view but I did get air. All walls decorated with scenes of rural Bolivia--nice. About 100 TV channels! A little above my usual budget but worth it


Inka's Rest

Puno, Peru
97%

Inka´s Rest was very enjoyable. Unlike many hostals in Peru, this is an actual hostel with dorms and social area to meet people. Alfredo was extremely friendly (good sense of humor too) and helpful. He books everyone´s trips to the islands and to Sillustani as well as buses to ongoing destinations. He knows all--and for each tour and bus, you are picked up at the hostel. Great location and internet too.


Jacaranda Inn Hostel

Cusco, Peru
83%

Nice enough place in very convenient location. Very old building like all in Cusco so expect squeaky floorboards, lots of steps and several tiny inner courtyards. Two internet terminals and good sized kitchen but if you are an early riser or have an early bus to catch, they won´t let you into the kitchen/computer area till 8AM (no exceptions apparently!)


Nasca Trails Hostel

Nazca, Peru
90%

Safe, friendly, clean with a peaceful garden to relax in. Juan was fantastic--he booked my Nazca Lines flight before I arrived and arranged a tour of many other sites in the area. My bus didn't leave till late in the evening and he let me keep my bag at the hostel all day and let me hang out in the hammcks in the heat of the afternoon. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Good value but bring earplugs if the neighboring roosters are likely to bother you throughout the night.


83%

I liked the location--it's a 20 min walk to the Plaza de Armas but there's lots to see there and back. The hostel is a huge, old place but recently renovated. Lots of space--my 6 bed dorm could have easily accommodated 12--each bed was given a good sized locker. Hot water was available anytime; there's a tiny kitchen and 2 internet terminals with high speed connections. Only odd thing is that you must ring the dorrbell to be let in as the front desk is upstairs.
