I didnt stay at the hostel long enough to give an accurate review. I had a pretty bad nights sleep in a very cramped and noisy room. The location however was excellent - close to the tube and centre of the city and easy to find.

There wasn't an awful lot of choice of hostels in Rimini but this hostel was nice enough.

Very expensive for a large dorm room bed but i guess that is Swiss prices... The breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Location was great for partying.

I have stayed at many hostels and this was definitely one of the best. The location was perfect, the staff very friendly and helpful and there was a great social atmosphere. The evening meal was of restaurant standard and came with plenty of beer. I have recomended friends to go there since and they have had a great time :-)

Quite simply an awesome hostel! This is largely down to the staff which are the best i have encountered in any hostel - infectiously happy, extremely helpful, sociable and a lot of fun. It is not advertised as a "party hostel" which means that there aren't large groups of guys but there are loads of fun events organised by the staff - the beer garden was especially good. The dinner each night was also tasty and there was a good atmosphere in the kitchen at this time. Thanks Dave, Nano and Rob!

I've stayed at a lot of hostel but this has to be the best! The location is perfect - just 5 minute walk from the centre and a big supermarket is even closer. The hostel was clean and interestingly decorated and there are a number of comfortable places to hang out and socialise including the bar which has the best couches, table tennis and cheap bar. The staff were also a good combination of professional and a lot of fun! If you like to socialise then this is the place for you.

Never written a bad reference for a place before but i feel i should here. I was expecting something quite social staying at a "party hostel" but it was one of the quietest hostels i've ever stayed at. The staff were really nice but didn't have a clue where to party or where to drink. I also imagine queues if the hostel was full. The worst thing of all is that they charge you a decent amount to stay in the hostel past 11am but they are kind enough to let you keep your bag in the smoking area,

Perfect location, really nice staff, very clean and good facilities. The evening meal rather than breakfast is a genius idea because it means everyone is gathered together and it's very social. The food was also much better than i expected. One of the many fantastic hostels in krakow

It's a very big hostel which makes it a bit difficult to meet people, especially since it was a monday night and very quiet. However the staff and facilities were very good and i have heard good things from everyone that has stayed at the hostel. It's probably ideal if your looking for a good time and traveling with company

One of the best hostels i have ever stayed at in terms of facilities, staff, location and of course FUN!! One piece of advice is to not commit a facebook violation because the drink is not the tastiest ;-) I couldn't believe for such a cheap price i got all this and there was a hot tub and Sauna in the ensuit bathroom!! Highly recomend this place

Cheap, fun, great location and i'll certainly be staying here when im in London again. It was easy to meet other travelers and the the rooftop bar was a nice and cheap place to have a drink while socializing. The chillout room was also one of the best with comfy sofas, cinema room (projector) and good internet connection.

The hostel was surprisingly good and very cheap for Paris prices. Usually large hostels are not very social and it can be difficult to meet other travelers. However the bar was very lively and the hostel even has a club downstairs. The location isn't the best but there is a place to rent bikes nearby (10 meters) and i managed to get into the middle of Paris easily enough.

I choose this hostel hoping to meet some travelers and have fun some fun that was very difficult - probably because the hostel is so big. There were a lot of very young and very old guests so not what i was expecting. Appart from that it's a very nice hostel and the breakfast was great

Great hostel - maybe the best i've stayed at! The breakfast was the best and it was even possible to do laundry for free. It was also a very social hostel and meeting people and having a good time was no problem at all.

The hostel felt a little packed. The kitchen was very small and not well equiped. However overall it was a good hostel - reasonably prices, easy to meet others, good location (if a little difficult to find due to lack of hostel sign). Staff were extreamly strict and a little rude about checkout time but i would recomend this hostel.

The hostel was great! Staff were friendly, helpful and a lot of fun. It's in the best location possible, clean, good facilities and it was possible to lock the door of my room. The lounge area was great to chill out in and the staff had a drink with us in the night which was great fun. The hostel was also kind enough to organize a day trip to all the local sights and the waterfalls are unmissable. All of this for a cheap price. highly recommended i wish i could have stayed longer!

The Ryanair equivalent for hostels. Cheap but trying to get guests to purchase extras (no kitchen). The atmosphere is more that of a hotel and seems to attract that type of guest which is not what i was looking for, however it would be perfect for some guests if that's your style. It would have been nice to have toilet paper and not to queue for half an hour for a shower. The owner is very nice but the sarcastic attitude i received from another member of staff was uncalled for while checking out

The hostel could hardly get any better. The staff are fantastic (helpful, friendly and fun), the place is very clean, the kitchen is great and there are a number of places to relax and have a drink with the other guests in the hostel before a night out. The location of the hostel is also perfect - around 1 minute walk to the lake, shops, pubs and clubs. Highly recommended!

I would highly recomend the hostel if you want to have fun! I had an amazing. The best thing about the experiance was the staff. They were very friendly, helpful, kept the place clean and most importantly a lot of fun!! The location of the hostel is great - near the hot springs and a nice beach. It is also inbetween Golden Sands and Varna city and just a short bus ride away from both. It is also super cheap! I will be back someday soon i hope :-)
