Second Home Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

All-in-all a decent hostel - amazing staff, good beds, nice common areas, etc. However, our room was in the basement so didnt get any natural light (i think the rest of the rooms are above ground). I'm not sure this is necessarily a fun / party hostel but we were there in the winter when the roof terrace was closed.

Check Inn HK

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Great hostel for solo and group travellers. The rooms are small but that's the norm in Hong Kong. Very clean (there seemed to be cleaning going on continuously); very helpful, friendly staff; nice social areas; free computer use; great lockers; guides of the local area; very easy to find; and a really sociable, friendly vibe that made it easy to meet people. Overall one of the best hostels I have stayed in


Big purpose built hostel with all the amenities you will require and with very friendly staff. However, it's a pretty soulless places that seems to take every opportunity to make money from you. You have to pay to use the computers, you have to pay to leave your bag in a locker once you check out, you have to pay a key deposit, you have to pay for a towel and you have to pay extortionate prices in the bar/restaurant. I just expected a little more considering I was paying over €30 a night.

Hi, Our hostel is designed for your comfort and to provide the traveller everything they need in order to get this comfort. However, everything does come with a price. We do have though, free rental of plugs, iron etc. We have courtesy towels given to those staying in the private room and paying a little more for that comfort. Our computers are payble but the wifi is free if you bring your laptop or smart phone. The key deposit is refundable and the bar/restaurant offers 10% discount to all those staying with us. We are so sorry you didn't get to have all the facts right before you posted this review though we are happy to see your overall stay was a good one. We would love to invite you back and show you all the amazing things we do in order to make your stay memorable. Perhaps, we could also take some time and explain the operational side of our business should you be interested, so please, come gain soon =)


Athens, Greece

We arrived at the3 hostel and we greeted by a very friendly and helpful member of staff. We were given a map of Athens and told about all the main sights and all the question we had were answered. We stayed in a dorm which was very clean, quiet and had A/C which was great. The rooftop terrace is amazing with really good views of the Acropolis and the BBQ was very good value and a great way to meet people. I would definitely recommend this hostel.
