Generator Hostel Dublin, Dublin, Ireland
8.3
27th Jan 2016

Very large hostel, with good amenities nearby. Located on Smithfield square, a good location for both the tourist activities located in Dublin's city centre, and the Guinness Storehouse/Jameson Distillery/Phoenix park. Bar area is great and has a good selection of craft beers. Clean, spacious rooms, albeit with no ensuites. Only downside is that prices fluctuate wildly and they do not always seem to have all of their options up on Hostelworld - one night could be €10, and the next €70.

Spacious rooms, great location, friendly staff. There's a breakfast included and also free pasta every evening. The interior is nicely decorated, and there are several areas for hanging around and meeting people. Seems to attract a friendly, diverse crowd. Top class hostel!

Easy to get to from the Hauptbahnhof, and on the side of the city which has all the night life. It's about a 15 minute walk to get across to the old town for sightseeing. The hostel was almost completely empty (not surprising given the time of year), but had a really good common area. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful.

Circus Hostel, Berlin, Germany
9.1
3rd Jan 2016

Well-located hostel beside Rosenplatz and on the U8 line. The rooms and showers were spacious and clean. There's a coffee shop joined onto the reception, and a cool bar downstairs (also a microbrewery!). Lots of amenities in the surrounding area, the staff were helpful and there are also several tours that leave from reception over the course of the day. Circus is my favourite place to stay in Berlin!

Good facilities, the bar area is quite social, and there is also a cool downstairs venue. During my (Christmastime) stay, there was also a free Christmas dinner for a few tables of people each evening. I'd recommend this place for a solo traveller.

Well-located clean small hostel on Hong Kong island. The staff were really nice and helpful, and though the place feels a little small, the common area still had a great atmosphere, easy to get talking to people and make friends.

21st Nov 2015

OMP is a great party hostel, definitely the place to stay in El Nido if you want to meet other backpackers. The staff were helpful but a little disorganised, many guests had to switch room several times over their stay. WiFi is quite patchy when everyone is back in the evenings. The common area is good, there's a breakfast included, and occasionally a free pasta dinner.

Sokdee Guesthouse Luang Prabang, Luang Prabang, Laos

28th Oct 2015

Very average accommodation. The room hadn't really been cleaned properly, and some of the lights/sockets were not working. The manager was only mediocre, there was not always somebody at the desk, usually one of the ever-present family members had to locate him. He tried to charge me extra for air conditioning, but thought better of it at the last minute. They are able to arrange airport connections and trips at competitive prices.

Pans Place Guesthouse, Vang Vieng, Laos
9.1
25th Oct 2015

Pan's is the place to stay in in Vang Vieng. While the dorms are quite small, there's no reason to be in them other than for sleeping, as there is both a comfortable relaxed back patio and a second large seating area around the reception. Well located and great value, and the staff are some of the most helpful I've encountered - they went above and beyond in helping me out during my stay. This is one of my favourite hostels, I'll certainly be back.

Fairly average hostel, there wasn't much atmosphere in the common area, and nowhere to store your bags except unattended beside the lobby. The staff were helpful, and there was an excellent breakfast included. The price is excellent for what you get. It was great to have a swimming pool, even if it wasn't attached to the premises.

SameSun Vancouver, Vancouver, Canada

13th Oct 2015

SameSun is a very big hostel, though since it has a good bar and common area, it's easy to meet people. A lot of the guests there seemed to be applying for jobs in the city though, and weren't interested in participating in activities. The rooms were a little cramped, but had lockers to stow away belongings. They were strict enough about security, and had a very good breakfast included.

Well-located, smaller sized hostel. The staff were very helpful, if a little lacking in energy. There is a homey common room, and a huge amount of bars and restaurants in the vicinity. If the weather is suitable, there is also a spacious patio at the back.

I was a little disappointed with this hostel overall, for $90 a night I expected a little more. My dorm was quite small (smaller than the ones shown in the pictures). However the staff were polite and helpful, the common area was spacious and comfortable, and the basement bar was good fun (and had an event on when I stayed).

Well located, chatty/helpful staff, with a really atmospheric common area - very easy to meet people if you are travelling solo. There's just a beer fridge rather than a proper bar, but there's another affiliated hostel a few minutes walk away with a proper basement bar, usually a group migrates over each evening from the lobby.

HI-Ottawa Jail Hostel, Ottawa, Canada

24th Sep 2015

Very unique hostel. Fun to explore, and every morning there is a guided tour through the place. Included breakfast was very good, and there was also a bar area (outdoors though, quite chilly during winter). They also gave me a free upgrade to a larger room with a double bed, which was good of them. The doors are original jail-cell doors though, so you'll hear any noise from adjoining cells on your corridor. Worth it for the experience!

4th Sep 2015

Ostello Bello is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. It was obviously purpose-built as a hostel. The staff were incredibly helpful, and take the time to recommend temple routes and sunrise/sunset options to each guest who checks in. There's a breakfast included, and e-bikes for travelling around can be rented across the road (there are also travel agents who can organise a connection to your next stop). Plenty of good restaurants are nearby too, which the staff were also happy to recommend

Great location, right in the touristic centre of Brussels. Clean rooms, the only downside is that there is no receptionist on location, the kitchen locks at 11pm (so no drinking water available if you come back late) and you have to check in at a different hostel which is 10 minutes walk away.

Good hostel, bar area is great and it's easy to meet fellow travellers and socialise. Pool was a bit filthy. Bar could also do with some variety in music, the awful reggaton 24 hours a day does start to grate. Probably a good place to go if you are a young traveller passing through San José.

Great hostel, the manager was extremely friendly and informative. This would be a good place to stay if travelling around Costa Rica in between going from San José out to the various touristic areas. It's a quiet hostel, good for resting between trips, but there isn't very much going on, and there's no bar etc.

I first contacted this hostel after booking as I needed a date change, got no response. On arrival, I found it was quite small, just one dorm and a couple of private rooms. The front desk manager is barely ever there, and the front door is left open unattended all day and night. Security is very poor, at one point one of the local homeless characters wandered into the dorm pretending to want water. The volunteers never seem to clean, the kitchen was filthy, buzzing/crawling with flies/ants.

Really great hostel. Though it isn't in the middle of Santa Marta, it does not need to be, it's well located to do the Lost City trek, etc. The staff are beyond amazing, very attentive and friendly. Almost everything you could want to do can be booked through the reception, too. The pool area is pleasant, and there's a great bar too. The place fosters a decent atmosphere, and groups venture out together to clubs on most nights.

Very well located, clean hostel. Safes are provided, though at busy periods people can walk in the door past reception unchecked. There is a really cool bar area, though it seems to stay quiet even on weekends.

This hostel was pretty strange. The son of the owner who appears to be in charge is quite very unhelpful, and takes quite a long time to do anything you ask him. The location isn't great, while it is close to the beach it takes a long time to get to the center of town and to the walled city, which is where you want to be in Cartagena. Some others who stayed here told me the manager bribed them with a free night to give a good hostelworld review...

Well located, clean hostel with spacious rooms and decently sized in-room lockers. Lots of sit-down areas in multiple courtyards and a good bar area too. The bar closed down very early the night we were there, though, and people weren't allowed to sit and chat in the common areas after that. Still probably the best hostel option in Candelaria.

Hello, See you soon Thank you for choosing Masaya as your accommodation during your stay in Bogota! We are very satisfied that you appreciated the location of the site in the old Candelaria area, the comfort and the different service of our hostel!

There didn't seem to be any lockers at this hostel, and we weren't given a key for our private room. It's quite far out of the city centre, but the staff were incredibly helpful and everything else was good. Recommended if you want to stay in a quiet place in Bogota and don't mind being a little further from the action.

View Property Reply

The room you stayed is a private room, and obviously, the door has a key. That´s why there are no lockers inside the room. We have lockers in the dorms. We apologize because the employee didn´t give you the key. We have already taken the corrective actions in order to avoid this situation to happen again. Your feedback is very important to us and much appreciated too.

Helpful, friendly staff, good location, there is also a kitchen. There were only a few very small lockers in the hostel, suitable for valuables only, and all were used by other guests :( One of the two showers doesn't even have a head, it's just a pipe coming out of the wall. Atmosphere was okay, and they organise some activities. Go to the tejo evening if you can!

5 months of travelling and this place was by far my favourite hostel. Located at the back of Baño (but still a 10 minute walk from the bus station) you'll spot the small wind turbine on the roof as you get close to it. Right beside it are the stairs that lead up to the Virgin statue and onwards up to the mountain trails, and the swing at Casa de Arbol. The owner and the rest of the staff are very friendly and helpful, and their excursions are competitive. Stay here if you are in Baño!

Well located near the beach and on the main street, really nice pool and bar area, great atmosphere. There isn't a whole lot to do in Mancora, but the guests Loki attracts seem to be quite friendly, I had a lot of fun in this hostel. Given that Mancora has such a poor reputation for tourist-related crime, it was reassuring that the hostel took security seriously, both at the gate and within the grounds.

This place has a pool! Good showers, but no hot water. It's a little far away from the main square, but the rooms are quite cheap for the town. The receptionist was very helpful with information about what attractions there were in Iquitos.

Reasonably priced hostel, rooms aren't too cramped. Some of them face out onto the roundabout though, so they can be noisy at night. The rooftop area and food were good. However the bar was very expensive (beer was more expensive even than on the beach, and the "happy hour" was 3 for the price of 2.5). The manager was the kind of person who constantly offers girls free drinks if they'll take off their tops and pose for a picture. The last bit made me stay elsewhere when I returned to Lima.

Wild Rover Cusco is very clean, well located and well staffed. Every room has an en suite, which is nice. The atmosphere at the bar isn't quite as good as other party hostels I have been at, though, and due to the layout there is a lot of noise from the bar in most bedrooms.

This hostel looks nice at a glance, but on closer inspection fails to impress. It has a large pool, and the bedrooms are bright and clean. However, (deranged parrot aside) the pool is filled with floating insects and does not seem to have a filter. There were also bed bugs in my room, I woke up after 5 hours with >100 bites. Go elsewhere.

Ah, the Wild Rover. Maybe the most fun hostel in South America? The food is top notch, the bar is loads of fun, and the managers are great guys. Beds are comfortable, there are events to keep you entertained every evening, and the receptionists are helpful too. I had a far better time here in la Paz than when I moved to Loki, and will be straight back if I ever return to the city.

Excellent hostel! Though it is not too far from the bus station, it is right on the outskirts of town - don't do what I did, and turn up at midnight without the map (which they send you after you book). The rooms were good, the hostel was nice and relaxed. Only downside is that the bar closes quite early, due to surrounding residents. The staff are extremely helpful, and you can book a trip to do any of the activities available in the town right from reception.

This hostel was very rough around the edges. The 10 bed dorm only had 5 lockers, 2 of which had been ripped off the hinges. The receptionist feigned ignorance and then let me put my valuables into the not-so-secure storage area. The kitchen is very small, and the bathroom had a broken lock, shower head ripped off the wall. The common area was nicely decorated, and the place had a reasonable atmosphere.

Nice hostel, decent food and free wine. However, a large amount of money got stolen from my bag when I left it out of my locker for a couple of hours one day, and given who was in the room, I think it could only have been one of the cleaning staff. Thus unfortunately I won't have great memories of this place.

Spacious, clean hostel with the most comfortable beds in the world. There is a dinner provided every evening if you like, in the fun communal area out behind the main building. Gaston, the owner, was a lot of fun, and very helpful for getting information about the stuff to do locally. If you are visiting Puerto Madryn, you need to stay at Hi Patagonia!

Stay in this hostel and find out about all of the cool spots!

Ahh, Milhouse. Less hostel, more strict institutionalised fun. The people it attracts tend to be very nice and sociable, though the in-house parties each evening have a very awkward-school-disco-with-pants-music feel to them. They have the awful squeaky metal bunks! The staff were quite helpful, and the recommended club nights were worth checking out. Though, it seemed a bit much that you get your wrist grabbed at the door after checking out so they can cut off your band. Or was that just me?

Pretty cool hostel, nice big rooms with high ceilings and lots of room to move around. The pool is also a nice touch, and the staff are very willing to help with queries. The only downside was the under bed lockers, they weren't very secure and could be accessed by simply moving a bed and going around the back.

They were able to inform us about all the options of everything there was to do locally. This is definitely the best place to stay on the Brazilian side of the falls!

This is one of the coolest hostels I've stayed in! You feel like you've been welcomed into someone's sitting room. Great atmosphere, this place seems to attract a cool and laid-back crowd. The breakfast is by far the best I have seen, a gigantic long table filled with a huge selection of food. The nights when they put on a group dinner option were also all great. And check out the kayaking if you have the time!

There were no lockers in our room, we had to use ones next door in a sometimes-locked dorm. The hostel is at the back of the town (town is small enough that this doesn't really matter). The lady running the place was nice, but we did have to ask a few times before we got basics like pillows and covers sorted. There wasn't a breakfast included - though the hostel was a little cheaper, this made it a little unworthwhile.

Room was very cramped, 6 under-bed lockers facing each other in such a way that only one person could really be accessing theirs at a time. Receptionists were fairly disinterested in what was going on, it was a little disheartening to see how seldom they bothered to answer the phone. Dinners were excellent, but the cocktail bar was never opened.

Irina was a welcoming and helpful hostess, thanks for receiving us! The hostel is located very centrally - but can be a bit difficult to find initially, there isn't really a sign for it apart from "hostel" spraypainted in black on a wall outside. If you are coming up from Independence Square, and see an Adidas shop, you are almost there :)

The good: Roof bar is great, as is the ground floor computer/common area. The breakfast buffet is delicious and good value (40 per person for all you can eat). Location & facilities good. The bad: Rooms are a bit dark and dreary, could also do with a fresh lick of paint. The common areas are not properly washed, I wouldn't recommend walking around in your bare feet inside the hostel. Rooms are not made up during your stay, which means reception visits each time you run out of toilet paper.
