Really great place to stay; Reminded me of the Villa Hostel in Interlaken switzerland. Nice lounge room with a fireplace in the middle. The only complaint is the room card key kept malfunctioning, and I was locked out of my room frequently and had to keep resetting it at the front desk. Key cards need to have the electronic chip, not a magnetic strip.

The only critique I have for here, is the breakfast set-up. No catch pan under the toaster oven and no self serve hot water for tea drinkers.

This hostel wasn't as nice as I expected. I wasn't comfortable with the kind of crowd staying there,or the staff- they were not helpful when I asked for locations of bathrooms.. They became too defensive when I expressed some impatience. It only takes one second to tell me where the nearest bathroom is.

New Paltz Hostel

New Paltz, USA

Very comfortable place to stay. The only thing I didn't like was the fact they have a 10pm curfew, and guests are not provided keys for re-entry. Not a good policy- We are adults, not children. So if I needed to go out to my car to get something, or wanted to get some food at the store, I would not be able to get back in. The owner needs to rethink this. Hostels in NYC don't have any curfews.

I have stayed here before and found it was better when I first used to come here. It seems it has gone somewhat downhill, with with the rooms no longer having table and chairs to sit at to do my computer work, and some outlets that didn't work in the room. I wanted to use the tables in the common kitchen area, but they close it at night leaving me with no place to do my computer work. The staff didn't make efforts to provide with with alternative areas to sit.

The kitchen area has always been the best.The only thing is, when it's busy, you have to wait in line to wash your dishes. Maybe bring some paper plates.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately, our environmental program will not allow paper plates. We will try to do a better job getting people through the line so it does not take a major effort. We did add a dishwasher to minimize cleaning by our guests. Bob Sylvia Director Of Hostel Operations HI-Boston

SleepIn YMCA Luebeck

Lubeck, Germany

Although a very clean and comfortable place, it does not offer any type breakfast, or coffee. Room doors do not lock. Also no internet of any sort. There is practically no internet anywhere in lubeck, so it is difficult to get on line at this location, unless you are signed up with T mobile. So this is good place, just needs to work on providing a few more things.

I recently tried to get a room at this hostel, on a night that there was known vacancy. I was unable to reserve online because of computter problems, but when I arrived, the seedy bald owner had bad attitude and wouldn\'t accomadate me, even though there were rooms. He just didn\'t want to do the work of checking someone in late at night. So thanks to him, I had to sleep in my car, to be awaken by a cop with a flashlight. If that owner did his job, I wouldn\'t have gad to go thru that ordeal.
