Guru Hostel

Budapest, Hungary

This place is always fantastic. Stayed here a couple times now; staff is really friendly, location is easy to get to for the train station or the local sights, and the group of travelers is really nice and eclectic — not a bunch of 20-somethings who just came here to party. Always a pleasant home away from home.

Great staff, nice hostel, decent location, good group of travelers there when I was. Not a party hostel, but easy to meet other travelers. Price was fantastic, especially since it included breakfast. Would stay here again.


Sexy Tractor Hostel

Budapest, Hungary
91%

Super close to the train station, an easy walk or metro ride to many places in Budapest. Friendly staff, all very knowledgeable about the city. Security is great with all the coded locks, but it was a bit of a hassle having to remember them all, and I couldn't find a light on the stairs, which made punching in the entrance code difficult after dark... Anyway, great value hostel, very comfortable and clean, and it had an interesting group of travelers when I was there. Would stay again.


Patio Hostel

Bratislava, Slovakia
91%

Kind of straddled the line between feeling like a hostel and a hotel — I'm not sure it's the place to go if you're traveling alone / looking to meet people. That said, really nice place, super clean, great security, friendly staff, good location, nice common area and lounges.


Fifth Hostel

Budapest, Hungary
74%

Always kind of strange to be the only people staying in a hostel on a Friday night especially at the start of summer... On-duty staff was asleep and didn't wake up when we rang, but the guy who came to let us in when we called the hostel's number was super prompt and friendly. Anyway, clean and decent place, but again, no atmosphere to speak of due to the lack of guests.


Hostel Faust

Krakow, Poland
51%

Not sure how this property has such a high rating. There's absolutely zero security—anyone can enter the building, and since guests don't have individual keys for the rooms, the room is unlocked as long as someone is in there, plus there are no lockers or anything. Weird people who seemed to be living in the room, some who appeared to be children and one creep who made lewd passes and stared at us. Room layout was weird and beds were definitely too close to one another. Very little good to say.

Noah's Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey
66%

Not my favorite hostel I've stayed in. Difficult to find, and although the location was good in terms of proximity to things, it was kind of a sketchy area after dark. Rooms were freezing at night. No security to speak of — the gate and front door are open and not totally visible from reception (which isn't staffed at all hours either), and there are no lockers in the rooms. It was cheap so that was great, but Istanbul doesn't lack cheap hostels so there's probably better places out there.


Oh So Indie House Hostel

Decent hostel. A bit tricky to find it even with the directions the hostel sent (mainly because we had to enter through the courtyard rather than the main door), but I got there in the end. Location is excellent and staff was friendly.

Thank you, Kylie! We hope to see you here again!

Bled Hostel

Bled, Slovenia
94%

Short walk away from the happening parts of Bled, but a stone's throw from the bus station. Staff are super friendly and can help you figure out what to do in the area. Rooms are clean and there's a nice common room and kitchen area. A little noisy with the bar downstairs, but nothing too bad. Decent place.


Hostel 24

Ljubljana, Slovenia
89%

Nice hostel; decent price. Great location, and great staff. Not much in the way of a common area (unless you count the bar area as a common area?), and it also showed online that it was booked up but there were plenty of empty beds when I actually arrived (not sure if that was a hostel thing or a hostelworld thing). Anyway, for price and location reasons, I'd stay here again.


HoBar - the hostel bar

Budapest, Hungary
83%

Last minute booking at a time when a lot of hostels were filled up—for that, couldn't beat the price and it's in a decent location. Kind of a strange set-up: no real security to speak of, unless you count the people at the bar recognizing that you were supposed to be staying there (although the lockers were free, so there's that). Felt like anyone could walk back into the rooms. But nothing really bad to say about the hostel, it was just kind of a meh place.


Budapest Hostel

Budapest, Hungary
80%

Your opinion of this hostel depends on what you're looking for—if you're looking for a place that's centrally located, you can probably do better (although it is connected to downtown by metro and tram lines; it just depends on how much of a hassle you want). That said, I stayed here because it was close to the international bus station, and for an early morning departure from there, this place can't be beat. Normal hostel standards for cleanliness (but it's cheap, so). Staff is super nice.


Mosaic House

Prague, Czech Republic
89%

Felt like staying in a hotel with a bunch of people sharing the room. Was a great place to stay for a few days and the staff were really excellent, but it's difficult to meet people unless you go on the hostel-sponsored walking tour or pub crawl. No real area to hang out. That said, super clean and pretty centrally located—and again, great staff!

Great hostel for a relaxed place to stay—fantastic location and wonderful, friendly staff. Pretty quiet as hostels come, definitely not a party place, and the price can't be beat! Would stay here again for sure.

Labyrinth Hostel Vienna

Vienna, Austria
86%

Basically exactly what you'd expect for a cheap hostel in terms of cleanliness, security, etc. Very cheap compared to other hostels in Vienna, and fantastic location. Hostel is spread across multiple buildings so I don't know how the others are structure, but ours didn't have much in the way of a common area. But as for me, I'd definitely stay there again!

David Hasselhostel

Budapest, Hungary
89%

Good place to come to if you're looking to meet friends—definitely a party hostel, and they organize a lot of activities in the evenings. Gets a bit rowdy. Most of the guests when we were there were American or English. Common room apparently turned into a slumber party, which was kind of weird if you were up at a normal hour the following morning. But it was cheap, staff was friendly, and it was reasonably clean.

Paddy's Palace Dublin

Dublin, Ireland
89%

Staff were super, super friendly! Took a great tour that left right from the hostel, and got free airport shuttle service. WiFi was spectacular—could reach it from the rooms. Still, I feel like I've received the same service from hostels that charged less per night . . .


The Ritz Budget Accommodation

Killybegs, Ireland
93%

Wonderful hostel, really great location, friendly hosts, BUT I went during a slow week and they tried to split everyone out into separate rooms, which was great until there was one more person than they had rooms . . . and they put a 35-year-old man in a room alone with me, a 20-year-old girl. And because we were the only ones there in the room, he felt it was okay to make a pass at me. I know I signed up for coed. accommodation, but it was just a little awkward, y'see? :/ Otherwise, phenomenal.

Abrahams Hostel

Dublin, Ireland
90%

Wasn't quite the cleanest hostel and it really sucked only have one shower and one toilet for a room of twenty people, BUT it was €10 a night, including continental breakfast, and in a great area, so for that price it was AWESOME. Plus the staff were really friendly. Wi-Fi was not so good even in the lounge area, but again, don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
