There are different appartements in this hostel, that's not the best for meeting people. But the common room is nice and the girls at the front desk were great - always friendly and helpful.
The location is really great and from my dorm I had a nice view to the river. The stuff is very friendly and helpful. Clean, good atmosphere - I can absolutely recommend this hostel.
Excellent hostel, everything is clean and in good condition. Stuff is helpful and always friendly. And you get a fresh waffle in the morning for breakfast.
You get a welcome beer for free! Common room, dorms, stuff, location - everything is very good. But one thing I want to emphasize: I don't know how often they check/clean the facilities, but they must do it very, very often, almost every time I have been there, the toilet paper was folded.
Great hostel and a good place when you wanna meet people for a pub crawl. I liked the mix of that there was party but although the hostel itself was quiet at night. At 11 p.m. the common room was closing and the nice stuff took us to places they like.
I booked a bed in a dorm (double room) and had the whole room for myself. The stuff was friendly and helpful. There is no hostel atmoshphere at all. You barely meet people. I think for what you get it's very expensive, but considered that everything in Helsinki is sooo expensive, the value for money is ok. Still, when the summer hostels are closed maybe the best affordable place to stay in Helsinki.
Everthing is very new and clean. The stuff was really great and alway friendly even when there were lot's of people with different questions at the same time. The bar/restaurant is more high class style than a cozy hostel common room. Good live music evey evening and pub crawls with lot's of wodka shots.
It's a bit far to walk from the central station (but there is a tram line) but ir's totally worth it. Everything in the hostel is in perfect condition and the stuff was very friendly. It's in an easy walking distance to the city center and it's located close to the river (there is a nice spot to sit during daytime and night).
Good hostel, nice place and helpful stuff... all you need.
The owner organized a pub tour and went with us. The hostel itself was quiet. Really amazing was that the girl at the counter wrote down for at least 20 minutes some tips for guatemala while I waited for the shuttle service to Antigua. I didn't ask for that, she offered that by herself.
Very friendly girl at the reception, nice rooftop terrace, they recommended me a safari guy, safari was good, regrettably very bad matresses in the dorm (they are planning to change it - at least they said)
The owner is most of the time around, he is a very friendly guy, explained everything to me (good restaurants, cheap restaurants, where to buy things, etc.), I booked a sunset dhow trip at the hostel, it is probably a little more expensive than the cheapest price at the waterfront, but you get good service and a safe trip. I met people who were ripped off at the waterfront by some beach boys.
I arrived in Nairobi at 2pm and had to leave the next morning but wanted to see something of the city center. For this purpose the hotel is a good choice. Nothing special but altogether ok.
Everything was good, except the staff... they were perfect - very very friendly and helpful. Thanks!
Good hostel, perfekt location in the center of Temple Bar (of course not absolutely quiet), the next time in Dublin I will stay there again
The room was renovated and clean, only the Bath light did not work properly. When we arrived (6 p.m.) the rezeptionist was friendly but it smelled like he had some alcohol before. The most disturbing thing was, that some of the corridor lights didnt work (absolutly dark stairs at night) and the ground corridor smelled bad, when we passed it at night and in the morning (it smells like someone drunk is lying somewhere, but there was no one). Altogether is was ok, because the room was good.
Rooms in Rome are very expensive. Freedom Traveller is ok, but nothing special. I liked the night porter, who gave us very good tips for Rome.
Checkin was unorganised, the receptionist knew nothing of our booking and the deposit we made and asked for the whole price. After talking to the manager (he checked hostelworld) everything was clear and we got one additional breakfast for free (we arrived early the first day). The staffs seemed little motivated and was not very customer friendly even though not unfriendly (the snorkeling-rental-staff was very friendly). It's such a pity, because the location is really great. Anyway I'd go back
Everyone was absolutely friendly and helpful - cleaning stuff and reception. I felt very welcome and there is a good atmosphere. In my opinion there is just one thing that is solved not good: The shower is together with the toilet in one room and the water doesn't flow away very good. Because of that some people leave the room with a wet floor (not nice if you wanna use the toilet after). But the stuff is drying these rooms often. They helped me to get a cheap rental car.
At hostelworld it's just my second review but I have been to a lot of hostels before. And: this one was the best ever... and there is a big gap to the one at the second place. It's like someone was travelling around, recalled the best things he had seen and put them all together in one hostel: Soul Kitchen Junior. It's clean, has lot's of space, has everything you need and the beds are fantastic (big, with curtains). And the stuff ist so so great: absolutely and sincerely friendly and helpful.
I think it's more a private appartment than a regular (whatever that means) hostel. So if you want to explore a little how it is, to life in Moscow or like an Moscow resident, it's a very good place to stay. The owner is very friendly, everything is uncomplicated and the rooms are ok. There is a housecat which is very afraid of thunderstorms.
