Good location close the where students go out so lively at night. Riverfront is a 15 minute walk but it's a pleasurable stroll. Very cheap beer / port and the staff were very friendly! Didn't get the breakfast but free tea and coffee. Beds were extremely comfortable on our 6 bed dorm.

Excellent hostel with very helpful staff. The rooms were decent, very nice showers, and large communal area with a good balcony! 10 min walk from the main square and 1 minute from the amazing Browar shopping centre. Negative: wifi was non-existent! Definitely recommend staying here.

We were lucky enough to be one of the first guests in their new building (3 bed dorm). It was lovely inside with very comfortable beds, however there was no door in the shower so every time you shower water goes all over the bathroom (it isn't a wet room). Staff were great and there is a big kitchen and common room. Central Location.

Comfortable room and bed (4 bed dorm), yet there didn't seem to be many showers / toilets except on the ground floor. Very friendly staff and a good size kitchen, however very poor location is you want to be in the centre. A good deal with a very nice pub nearby for 10% off drinks.

Perfect location across the river from Temple Bar. This is a massive hostel with a good atmosphere and very good facilities, but the wifi is absolutely appalling (didn't work in my room at all, and was weak elsewhere). Standard breakfast but I found the breakfast staff to be rather rude and pushy. Reception guys are very helpful though. Number of toilets and showers is decent, but you;ll still be waiting in the morning / evening.

Hi thank you for your comments. Apologies the breakfast staff were rude towards you - we will be speaking with them about this. We are meeting with our wifi provider this week to see how we can make our signal stronger. It does however tend to get slower when we have a full house! We hope you enjoyed Dublin! Thanks, Yvonne

Best breakfast I've ever had at a hostel - not necessarily the quality but the 'sit and be served' service! However, our 4 bed dorm on the top floor and VERY uncomfortable beds - I think my mattress was way past its day. Average cleanliness and good size common areas, however I found the owner to be more worried about persuading us to leave good reviews than than actually providing a good service...

Being a hotel, there is no hostel atmosphere or recommendations / advice that you would expect from the latter. Got the feeling the staff didn't really want us there. However, the rooms are clean and tidy with decent bathrooms. Location is close to the bus/train station but a good 15/20 min walk to the old town.

Superb new guesthouse with wonderful views of Berat. Right in the heart of the town, this place has brand new beds and bathrooms that are very good quality. The daughter speaks good english and is very friendly - when we left she thought we had overpaid and ran down the street after us!! Not really a hostel in terms of atmosphere, but welcoming, friendly and high quality accommodation that I would highly recommend.

We booked very late and it turned out there were no rooms actually available, but the owner instead put us in a hotel with amazing views over the bay! One of the best hostel owners I've ever met and I felt touched by the effort he went to and extremely welcome in his property.

Excellent new hostel in the centre of Tirana. Wonderfully furnished and the staff are great - the owner was very helpful when we wanted to rent a car (took us to the company and translated everything for us) and also when we needed to get to the bus station (taking us in his car and even getting a short tour of the city!). Definitely a great place to stay in Tirana and highly recommended.

Clean hostel, comfy beds and a nice communal space. There is absolutely no point advertising fre WiFi though as it is awful - even on the computers downstairs that are advertised as an internet cafe!! Staff didn't seem to know much about auckland, which is a real let down, but they were happy to help with problems in the hostel.

Staff were very unhelpful and unwelcoming - didn't know anything about brisbane and were not friendly at all. WiFi was okay, but we resented having to pay for it. Rooms were good, and the beds very comfortable! Kitchen was big but extremely hot, and paying a deposit for a kitchen set was incredibly impractical and against the communal spirit of most hostels. Dedent locarion, but having only lift access to each floor was terribly slow and impractical. Won't be staying at a base hostel again.

Hi,Thanks for your comments, we appreciate any feedback whether it's positive or negative. I'm very sorry you didn't have a great experience with our staff, normally our staff is one of our best features. We ask guests to hire cutlery so the kitchen stays cleaner for longer & there is guaranteed utensils for everyone to use. We do have stairs but unfortunately they are fire stairs & can only be used to access the ground level this is purely a safety issue. Thank you
