I really enjoyed my stay here. I was a returning customer. The rooms were nice and small. I loved the roof top area and met lots of other travelers there. It has a great relaxing environment.

Amazing place. I loved sleeping in a cave. The owner and staff were beyond helpful. They helped to coordinate activities and drove me to the museum. The breakfast was great and the common area is really comfortable. It is one of the best hostels I have been too.

Great staff, great breakfast, great location. I will stay here again when I return to Istanbul. It is near the main attractions and has a tram within walking distance to get you to further things. The roof top is amazing.

we tried to move in, it is so great. The rooms are big and comfortable and clean. The kitchen is small, but serviceable. There is a common area that is really like a livingroom. It was so homey. I can't say enough good things. We had a balcony off the room. Such a treat to stay here. The staff was really helpful with arranging onward travel for me.

I stayed at the new hostel called The Crib. It is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The owner is amazing and so helpful. She made a fantastic breakfast every morning. The hostel is clean and comfortable. I felt like I was staying in someones home. I would highly recommend this place to everyone! It is located really close to the old town... maybe a 2 minute walk.

Hostel Mostel

Pretty good hostel in a great location. The staff were really helpful and able to answer questions. The 18 bed dorm is foam mattresses in the attic all together, so be aware before you book that room. It also doesn't come with breakfast or dinner.

Sun Hostel

The hostel was set in a nice building and had a great common area with tv and couches and tables and outside garden area. The kitchen was really well stocked. The rooms were clean and big, and the bathrooms were fine. The staff were really nice and so helpful. The hostel was about 30min from the bus/train walking and 20min to the old town, so the location could have been better.

Hostel Miran

Miran is amazing. He has a great, sarcastic sense of humour and had all of us on his tour laughing. The hostel was clean and in a great location. We were met at the station and escorted to the hostel which was great because it would have been really hard to find other wise. I would definitely recommend this hostel to everyone. The tour that Miran gives is also a must do! The information on the war was unbelievable, and the waterfalls were really refreshing. Everyone has to do the tour!

I loved this place! I want to go back already. I accidentally booked into Old CITY hostel, but the staff at Old Town hostel let me come and hang out with them any time. The kitchen is good, the rooms are big and clean, and the common area is a great spot to hang out. The hostel is a really great old building and in an excellent location. The staff definitely make the hostel great. Old City hostel doesn't have anything on the atmosphere and facilities of this hostel. Best hostel I have stayed at

It was a really nice hostel to stay at, and in a great location next to the old town. As with everything in Dubrovnik, it is over priced for what you get. The staff remembered everyones names, and were very helpful. It was clean and had a good kitchen.

Amazing staff, really clean, and great outside area complete with BBQ. I loved staying here. They also have a great boat to hang out on and have drinks. Definitely take advantage of the free pick up.... it is really hard to find the hostel. I would have stayed longer, but they are really popular had no rooms and we needed to move on!

The place was really clean and in a great location. Nice big common area outside and inside. The kitchen is really well stocked and big enough for multiple people to cook. The rooms were very comfortable. Only difficult part was finding the place because there is not a sign on the building. You have to look for the white building across from the supermarket for check in. It is not labeled either.

I had a really great stay in this hostel. It is in a perfect location in the center of town. The staff were all helpful and gave me excellent suggestions for things to do in and around Zagreb as well as for the rest of Croatia. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked. It was a bit quiet only because it is new, but I think thing will start to really pick up soon! Would highly recommend this place and would stay here again if I am ever back in Zagreb.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Rika was amazing. She was really friendly and helpful and was able to answer all of my questions. I found the people at reception to all be friendly, but not all of the others were as helpful. The hostel was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is really small. The staff made a traditional Hungarian dinner for us on two of the nights that I was there which was a nice surprise. The location is good. I would stay here again.

There were problems with hostel world and the whole hostel was double booked when I was there. The staff were amazing and found me a new place to stay for the same price. They let me come and hang out with them, gave great tips and advice, and served an amazing breakfast. I would go back just to get to actually sleep at the hostel. So many people there kept extending their stay and not wanting to leave!

Mapa da Ilha Hostel

I was worried about staying here due to the lack of reviews, but it turned out to be a great little place. It is pretty basic, but has a few hammocks, a good kitchen and a clean bathroom. It is small which is nice. It is up a bit from town, but everything is so close that the 5-10minute walk is not really an issue. There is no internet which makes it boring if it rains. I would stay here again, but would try for something in town first.

They organize tours, but it is easy to catch the bus and metro from the hostel too. I thought it was a perfect location for site seeing. I would stay here again. Also, the staff was always cleaning.

Hostel Urbano

I had previously been to San Jose, and was looking for a place that was quiet to relax for a few days. This place was perfect. I ended up staying 2 nights. The neighbourhood has a few malls and movie theater. The kitchen at the hostel is fully stocked. The breakfast was great. I took a night bus out at 11pm, and they let me stay in the hostel until just before 10 that night. The staff is amazing. The only downside is that it is a bit far from downtown, but I think it is an easy bus or taxi ride.

Staff was really helpful with organizing shuttles and place to stay and Tica bus for travel to Costa Rica. Breakfast was good, but small. The dorm rooms were good and had storage lockers.

I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

The Terrace Hostel

The staff were very helpful, but overall, there are nicer places to stay for equal price. The rooms are dark and really noisy because of the bar upstairs. It is definitely a party place as opposed to a rest place. Depends on what you are looking for in a hostel. I didn't eat there, but the food looked great. All locations in Antigua are good, and this place was no different.

Great place to stay. It was easy to get to Flores with the boat things. It was difficult to find the meeting place initially to get to the hostel. The rickshaw driver was convinced it didn't exist and the people at the tourist booth didn't know either. I found the cafe within 10minutes on my own though. It was nice to have a pool to use. Food on site was good and there were some nice walks around the hostel. The owners were really helpful with arranging tours.

Caye Caulker is such a small island that there really is no such thing as a bad location. I think this was a great place to stay and help out a local charity while saving money. The only downside to Caye Caulker in general was the amount of sand flies.
