great hostel, fantastic atmosphere, really genuine place. Staff (especially Filip), went so far out of their way to make sure guests had a good time and to provide us with information. Great location. Would strongly recommend for your stay in Belgrade
Staff were great and really went out of their way to ensure guests enjoyed themselves and were looked after while at the hostel. Aside from this we were fairly disappointed with the location and facilities at the hostel. It's a party hostel and lots of fun at night if that's what you're looking for.
Great little riad, clean with good facilities. Half the price of anything else in Marrakesh and great value for money. A little further from the city centre but we actually liked that. Had a really comfortable stay here and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is not included but that didn't bother us. Would recommend.
Overall a fine hostel. Beautifully decorated common area, good location (albeit hard to find), the included breakfast was great and the tour we booked through the hostel to the sahara was really enjoyable. However bathrooms were absolutely filthy and price was more expensive than other hostels. Stayed at another riad in marrakech a few nights later, it was half the price and had much nicer, cleaner, facilities. Having said this, this seems like a great hostel for solo travellers to meet others.
An alright hostel for what you get in Barcelona. Large, impersonal hostels seem to be the go here and this is another of them. Facilities are second to none though, hostel is comfortable. Some staff are super accommodating others couldn't care less. Breakfast is a good option for 3 euro and the location is OK. Better than many other hostels I have stayed at in Barcelona but still nothing overwhelmingly special.
One of the more authentic hostels I have stayed in in Barcelona. Has a nice, friendly and respectful communal atmosphere, great for a solo traveller. Free breakfast is great and location is hard to beat in the Gothic barrio. Only thing lacking is facilities, bathrooms were fine but rooms were hot and un-airconditioned in peak of summer.
Couldn't rate this hostel higher. Lovely staff, nice communal atmosphere in the upstairs room and terrace. Beautiful, clean, brand new facilities. Perfect location in a great little area, lots of restaurants etc to choose from but not in a noisy street. Hostel organised events every night. Lack of a proper kitchen the only downside if you want to do your own cooking. Air conditioning always a welcome relief from the summer heat of Madrid. Highly recommend.

Very, very sterile hostel. Facilities in themselves were good, but bathroom was always dirty and my 10 bed dorm was generally left filthy by other inconsiderate guests. Hard to get any sleep in the larger dorms because people are literally in and out all night - such a big hostel that you loose a genuine communal living vibe. Although some staff were great, on many occasions we experienced very poor, rude and excruciatingly slow customer service. Would not recommend.
Great hostel for my short stop over in KL. Good location, clean and comfortable. Staff were incredibly accommodating and friendly. Would stay again.
Had a lovely stay here, however, by Laos standards it is very expensive. No complaints about the accommodation itself, however as backpackers we decided to move to a place one-fifth of the price for the remainder of our stay in Luang Prabang, where we were ultimately just as happy. Would definitely recommend this to those without such a strict budget, who are happy to pay the extra dollars.
Hostel was pretty depressing - bunk beds were three stories high, giving the rooms an incredibly claustrophobic and uncomfortable feeling. Not too much to ask for a bed you are able to sit up on within a hostel. Was incredibly cheap by London standards although, so if you are on a tight budget it is an alright option. Bathrooms smelt and were dingey. Fine location. Wouldn't stay here again.
Really cool hostel in an incredible building. Staff very organised and incredibly helpful. Ljubljana is an amazing place with heaps to do and this is a great place to stay to see it all. Would definitely recommend staying here.
Nothing essentially wrong with the hostel but we really wanted to get out of there. Hostel was empty except for ourselves and a couple of 50 year old men, making it seem seedy and uncomfortable. Mattresses were the worst, most filthy and most uncomfortable thing I have slept on during 6 months in European hostels. However, staff were at least really really friendly and accommodating. Also, location within Zagreb was perfect and accessible to everything.
Another great stay at Carpe. Thanks for everything guys.
After a disagreement with the owner, we profusely apologised and were looking to enjoy the rest of our stay. However, we were made to feel so incredibly uncomfortable after this and the mood was so hostile we had to leave. After being charged the entire proposed stay, we moved to a hotel in the centre of town (drastically better location, private bathroom) for 5 euro more. You get the vibe here that your an unwelcome stranger in someone else's home & other opinions validate this. Don't bother.
The hostel we were staying in itself is fine. There were four of us and we were given a four bed room with a private bathroom and windows with a view of Sacre Cour. Breakfast is good. What really lets this hostel down is the location. Being on the other side of Montmartre means you pretty much want to take the metro everywhere, and this has never ever been the case for me in Paris before. Aside from this, the hostel had everything we needed for a fun weekend in Paris.
Carpe is the most homely hostel we have been to, but at the same time this hostel ensures you experience the best, funnest and craziest bar crawls, booze cruises, karaoke and dress up nights you will have in Europe. The staff are awesome and thanks to these amazing people you get the entire Budapest experience - fantastic day trips, awesome nights out, home cooked meals, a clean hostel in a beautiful building. We'll be back soon. Do yourself a favour and stay at Carpe!
Great hostel, fun staff, fantastic vibe in a beautiful place.
heaps of fun, really good vibe to meet heaps of other travellers. Staff are really fun and incredibly helpful, they organise nights out. Cheap drinks at the bar, amazing terrace overlooking the water. Twelve bed dorm was fun. Showers are a bit annoying but doesn't matter. Stay here if you're looking to meet lots of great people and have some fun. Would highly recommend the day trip the hostel recommended to Capri.
This place is filthy. We were shown our 2 person 'bungalow' and 5 mins later we were out of there. We have stayed in hostels all across Europe and never have we seen anything like this. The room was hot, no powerpoint, smelt like dead bodies. Don't start me on the communal bathrooms. If I had had to have done the trek up the hill over the cliff after a night at Cavo or Paradise I would have broken an ankle. Do yourself a favour, stay at Paradise Beach-still basic but cheap,clean and all you need
So dirty. So, so dirty.
We were incredibly impressed with our stay at Villa Pelekanos. For hostel prices we received a private room with a cute balcony, air-conditioning, fridge and private bathroom - all very welcome luxuries. The hotel has a nice pool which we really appreciated. The location means you either have to brave the crowded buses, but if you get a quad bike like we did, getting around the island is fun and easy. Would definitely stay here next time we're in Santorini, we'll be back soon!
