In terms of the dorm itself, easily the best hostel I've ever stayed at. It's basically a private room with double bed, but with very thin walls. Good location near trains and restaraunts, friendly staff, good activities like yoga. No elevator and no kitchen are a minus. There's a microwave and fridge in the bathroom though.

The staff were less than useless. No maps, local info or tips are provided. When I asked for advice about the city they gave me wrong info so I missed a few things that could've been really good. Everything in the hostel is monetised, at the expense of floor and bench space, so there's no room to move or socialise or prepare food. The corridors are packed with rubbish and boxes of junk. There's no room at all for bags in the dorms (if you're on a top bunk you will sleep with your pack). not good

Really good place all around. It's lacking proper cooking facilities (though that seems to be the case in most of Japan) and its a bit quiet. But overall very charming and has everything you need. Very close to a station and a 20 minute walk to Akihabara.

Red Nest Hostel Valencia, Valencia, Spain

12th Jul 2014

It's an okay place. The showers were almost always cold. And it's got that giant, chain hostel feel. It's not one of those hostels where you get to know the staff and has that 'staying at a a mates place' atmosphere. If you like the clubbing scene you'd probably like the atmosphere I guess. The free walking tour is really good though.

Hello, Thank you for putting a comment on Hostelworld :) We would like to know why did you feel this hostel had a "chain hostel feeling", as we think we always do our best to make our guests feel like home (as you can read in other comments). We are like a family (resting and also enjoying partying), and this is what we want you all to feel. We're sorry we couldn't make it in your case, but we hope to see you again so we can change your mind about Nest Hostels :) Red Nest Staff

Decent enough place. Its a bit of a pain if you have to check after 11pm. Not a lot of atmosphere or anything. All the facilities you expect. All the hostels in Valencia are in the old town, so youre not going to be near the beach no matter what. Okay place but there are better in Valencia.

Bit out of the way from the centre of town. It is in a nice area with shops and such, but just not very near the centre of town. Other than that it's a nice place. Just make sure they don't charge you for linen if you're staying in a 12 or 14 bed dorm as it says it's free on the website but some people got charged.

Thank you for the review. The linnen is only included on some booking sites, this one for example.

Good place all around. It's underground, so there are no windows in the rooms, which is great as that 3am sunrise is killer. All the essentials are there, good wifi, kitchen, showers, etc. Not much atmosphere and no locks on the dorms.

Very good place all around. Clean, comfortable, safe. All the usual facilities - well equipped kitchen, good wifi, laundry services etc etc. You have to pay for breakfast though. The staff are excellent and very friendly. In addition to helping you find your way around Skye and seeing the best things, they're good for a beer at the pub. Just be aware that it's in Kyleakin which is very small and not near a lot of the more popular attractions. But still well worth it with lots of nice walks.

Hi Luke, Thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. So glad you had a great stay and we hope to see you again sometime on Skye!

No Wifi, which is frustrating because it's difficult to find wifi anywhere in Venice. Expect to be cut off for your entire stay. No kitchen. There's a kettle and a tap. but not even a microwave. Not enough power outlets for everybody. Actual rooms are 20 minutes from where you check in.

Everything you need, good vibe. It's not in Florence, it's a little town about 40 mins drive out from the centre of Florence, hard to find. There's a bus that takes you right near for about 3 Euro. Great way to go off the beaten path and see some of the Tuscan countryside. Cool little medieval town nearby.

Really good place. Free dinner most nights as well as the usual free breakfast. You can borrow everything from laptops to bikes at no cost. Activities in the evening makes a good atmosphere. Really cool staff, lots of fun. Only problem was construction going on on my floor. Lots of mess and bags of rubbish everywhere, smelt pretty bad in the hallways.

Good place. The only real common/hang out area is outside. But being summer that wasnt a problem. They close it off at 10pm though. Staff are friendly though they couldnt halp me with a lot of my questions. FYI- if youre coming from or going to Salzburg, take the Westbahn train, not OBB. Half the price, leaves every hour and you buy tickets on the train. This is the sort of thing the staff should know.

Place is fine. Great location. Staff aren't too knowledgeable or helpful. I asked where I could get theatre tickets and they said just explore the city centre. I later saw a sign saying the hostel sells them. There was a minor issue with my room they didn't address as well. But still clean, good facilities. Bit quiet, not a chatty or fun atmosphere.

Standard sorta hostel. Good facilities. Computers free to use is nice. The lock on my door was buggy so my card key wouldn't work. Whenever I told staff they'd say it was the card and reprogram it, I'd go back up 3 levels, didn't work, back down etc etc. After 3 days a staff member fixed it. They were nice about it, but it was annoying as hell.

Where to begin? This is the perfect hostel (except for people that like those soulless giant chain hostels). Really feels like youre just at a mates place. Amazing staff (except they lure you into playing drinking games) if youre there for long enough you get to know them and they make you feel like part of the family, 15 mins from city centre, astonishing breakfast, cheap communal dinners, great showers, kitchen, wifi, etc. Wonderful atmosphere, cant help but make friends.

Place is in a dodgy area, rooms are a joke, terrible showers, they allow smoking in the rooms so that smell is always there. Too expensive for what you get. Sometimes there is no one at the front desk, at which times they lock the front door and you can't get in. It is clean, at least. And the one staff member I ever saw was nice.

Terrible. While I was out they took all the stuff out of my dorm (incl cash, etc in the locker) and put it where anyone could take it because they had bed bugs and needed to gas the room. No sign on the door so I went inside the room with the gas. And none of the staff knew where my cash, passport was put. Was missing for a day. Worst hostel I've ever been to.

Got charged $10 and I wasn't even told about it, so when check out time elapsed and I hadn't left yet, they just charged me instantly. Hostel's need to understand that their entire business is based on accommodating people that are trying to pinch pennies. Cheating guests out of money is not a good plan, I will never go here again.

We posted the policy at sign-in as well as on the receipt that check out time is "10 AM" and there is a $5 charge for late check-out. The reason is that we need to have the room cleaned and ready for new guests. We usually have guests waiting to get into the room. Another $5 for was for him to stay and using the facility till 11 PM. This guest came to the hostel at 8 AM and wanted to go the room. We did our best to let him in the room at 10:30 AM. He was aware of the inconvenience of late check-out that could cause for the new guests. He did not check out on time. We could not find him until 11:30 AM. He said he was going to stay till 10 PM (actually 11 PM). He was using the internet and the kitchen as well as storage. In addition, he took an unopened box of our breakfast cereal, as well as milk, for lunch and dinner. He was embarrassed and not happy when he was told that he should not have done that. We try our best to accommodate our guests, especially those from Hostelworld.com. We are fully aware that bad comments are detrimental to our business. However, we feel that our prices are very reasonable. We were awarded the Best Value in North America by one of major booking engine.

Absolutely no atmosphere at all. Dead quiet. Not really any common areas. Kudos on the VHS collection though.

Small and quiet. Triple bunks is a drawback. But nothing wrong with the place. Free clothes washing is awesome

At first glance the place seems awesome, but it has a great deal of problems. There's a pretty bad Roach infestation, the door to my room was always open, the bath rooms are filthy with clogged showers, etc etc. It's a little far from town but not too bad, not a great neighbourhood, though. It's a party hostel, though, so a lot of people and drinking and such, which is a must for a city like New Orleans. Not a bad place in all, just sub par.

A perfectly good place. Just dull. Don't go if you're travelling alone.

Very big, like a chain hostel, but also eerily quiet. Staff took some of us to thebaseball which was nice
