The location is excellent, really excellent! I have stayed before at this place, but now, returning, found that the situation has deteriorated. Not so much in the hostel itself - but the stairs leading up to it (it is on the 4th floor) are really dirty now, and a homeless person spends his night there. Regularly, it seems. In the morning, next to him - you start to think - why is the floor next to him wet??
This is the place to feel home away from home! Perfect location (old town, with the sulphur baths ca 200 m away), very helpful and kind staff, honest simple but tasty breakfast served in a most friendly manner... I shall come back! Plus - I had my birthday, and... they brought me a cake!
If you want to enjoy Istanbul shopping and nightlife - excellent place!
In fact it is easy to find when coming from the bus station - there are signs. Our mistake was that we took the wrong side of the road and did not se the signs...
All in all, a good option in Berat!
Tons of fun, a wonderful place to stay. Just that if you want to continue to Albania, the bus schedule offers more possibilities than the staff knows.
Breathtaking, very-very atmospheric place! To arrive from the bus station with bus 8 is fine - you get really close. But here a tip: if you want to go back to the bus station, DO NOT take bus 8, go down the stares and there are many buses very often (even the owner did not know this).
Wonderful place run by wonderful people. Easy to find, in a quiet and calm place, close to everything except the bus station - but that one is relatively close, too. Recommended.
Great location - and a very nice stay overall. Recommended,
The location is not beatable, and all the rest is very good, too. It is noisy at night in the old town - just that you know!
Reliable and comfortable place, excellent location. You have to bring your own linen (or rent them), and your own breakfast (but the Rimi-store is right next door). Do not forget to bring the raingear, too - it is raining in Bergen most of the time...
Unfortunately for my first night they did not allow me to sta - said their bed is broken. And sent me to a different hostel - which was nice but much shabbier. Pressed myself back for next night, though!
I liked my stay a lot! will come back!
Nice place - but you have to walk (or - in darkness - take a taxi) to get there.
The fan-room gets really too hot during April... difficulties to sleep
WOW what a place!! The best stuff ever, and the best atmosphere anywhere...
Well it is a good place, and the reception guy they have hired (the owners live right there in the lobby...) is wonderful. Ver soon you will feel like being greeted by an old friend, when returning there... But. They close the place down really early - so if you want to enjoy some nightlefe you might not feel so comfortable... They close it down like a shell - lowering electric doors like those in the garages. Unfortunatley this is the only entrance... I just hoped there would be no fire...
Incredibly dirty! My floor had a historic "cover" from guests before me, to which I added my layer, as there was no wastebasket... The stuff is eager to get your money (everything costs - internet, beer - more than other places). But the location is good.
You cannot beat the price-value relationship! And it is a nice place! Recommended! I do believe that they do not keep the room for you, though, so try to come as easly as possible.
The room was good, the staff very helpful, the location 1 USD drive from any place you want to go in the city... what else can you wish for?!
Wonderful place, so helpful staff, and so happy to be further away from Ko Sao Road! Much more real Bangkok here, and close to Skyrail.
Quite a good place to stay!!!
WOW how nice!!
You cannot find anything better for this money in the whole world! You feel like at home, with your family around you - but consisting of your fellow travellers and the wonderful staff.
They just added a 3 % fee to credit card payments...
Felt like home! The breakfast is also like home - you take it whenever you wake up, no restrictions!
You cannot beat the price-value relationship, and the location is excellent, too. They also do tour bookings with the best deal in town - at least i did not find any better. The only thing - there is no card payment possibility at all. So when you take any tour, the prepayment part you have to do in cash (ca 10 %).
I guess they are still the cheapest - and that is important, too. Just it would be more suitable if you wangt just party, and do not mind about anything else much. The free meal they offer runs out...
This is your perfect beach resort, backpacker! You cannot wish for anything better... Just have in mind that the buses on Tahiti work ca from 5-17 6 days a weak, and this place is 18 km from town (which makes it perfect!!!)
you cannot wish for a better place to stay - tremendous! The staff is very helpful and kind, and the surroundings are peaceful (village).
Just that they want to have a key deposit - I did not have cash, as I was leaving next morning - and did not get a key...
Really nice and friendly place. Only the price there is actually 50!
In Buenos Aires it is not easy to say which is the best location. This is definitely OK. However, it is very much party-oriented. Staff is a crowd in itself - so you get a variety od very nice people and rather rude ones (one turned his back on me in the middle of a converastion and started talking to somebody else). The tours they offer I consider very expensive (comparative what you can get elsewhere) and - pay attention! coming from Uruguay then the instruction on the website is wrong
It is a nice town / sure. If you have a heavy pack, then from the bus station and port I guess you have some places closer, But / all in all / surelu recommended!
I am not quite clear though re the security of the location.... Seems like after 6 it is not a good idea to walk around.
Wonderful place!! Just pay attention to a couple of things: 1. The free dinner needs you to be signed up first!! If you do not manage that - you will not get it (as it happened to me - nobody told me...). 2. It is quite a walk from the centre. Nice, actually - unless it is raining, of cource...
Great place to stay! Perfect! the tours they book are fine too - I took the 2-day trip to Titicaca with overnight at Amaltani island for 80 soles. Was just incredibly great! They even managed to book the tour with our arrival quite late. You can also get bus tickets easily and cheaply through them.
Even if the ratings are as they are (there have been better places) - this is a very nice place and totally recommended!
Difficult to beat the location! And they are really helpful. Laundry is a bit expensive, though.
Was quite far away from centre, so you need a taxi. During peak hours they are not available. Othr than that, a nice place!
Really nice place - I stayed there so many times durimg my Ecuador time taht it felt like real home! Santiago, the manager, is really cool-
really recommended!! You will get all the help you need, and the beds are SO NICE!
The stuff seamed to be really very well-meaning, but terribly overworked, with the load of visitors they are having there...
Nice location, reallyª
Excellent valuu for money!@
Definitely recommended. Good value for money and breakfast bagels are good!!
This hostel feels different from other HI I have stayed in. But it is quite ok, still!!
Cant think of a better place to stay in Chicago!!!
I liked the place! Just that it seemed to me I payed somewhat more through Hostelworld than their local ads were.
It is an ok place - if somewhat noisy due to open windows (Riga is hot now, and there is a bar downstairs). Also they charge a 5 % extra for creditcard paayments which I did not like.
I ordered a place in the 6-bed dorm, but was put into the 12-bed dorm instead - with the statement that there is price difference of 50 cents. In fact it was 2 lats - so i felt cheated...
Extremely good location!!!
Difficult to beat the location!!!

Compared to all the other experiences in Egypt - where none of the agreements seemed to hold at the same price as agreed - it was exceptional. We also used their airport transfer - which was complex because people were coming from different places at different times and dates - and it was perfect as well.
I do not think you can find a place more frienly and central than this. The stuff is really helpful and knowledgable.
Perfectly located, easy to find, historic settings - what could you want more!!!
It cannot be any better than this for this price!!! There were even vouchers fro free beer - right on the best square of Old Town.
The hosts are wonderful - real local people, friendly, willing to talk about anything of interest to you! Their English is not that good, but the daughter's is excellent. Really central. The premises themselves are a bit crowded, but the general atmosphere is nice.
You cannot easily beat the location - right at the entrance to the metro station and central. However - the teenager drinking party sounds do not give you much sleep...
Very well located
The lunch we had in the downstairs pub was excellent also. All in all - very nice stay!
Perfect for visiting the Trinity College, and close to everything.
The location cannot be any better, and it si all very conveniant here on the 3rd floor of hotel Riga!!!
You get a great location, but of course the character cannot be extra in a 1-star hotel...
