Varanasi, India

Probably the best hostel I've been in India. They have everything you need. Tours and activities, free breakfast, wi-fi and computers. Every bed has it own locker, reading lamp, and wall socket for charging electric devices. Bathrooms are good and clean. Besides, at the reception they sell beverages and snacks. Alcohol is forbiden inside thou, like many places in India. There's a rooftop and good commom area with tv and movies.

5 min walk from the main temples, and 5 min by car or tuk tuk from the others. Beaultiful garden and good restaurant. service is ok. Rooms comfortable and clean. Small city, easy to get to the train station or airport. Wi fi wasnt working properly. There was something wrong with my booking, so they gave me a free dinner =D

Hi there! We're so glad you find us consistently excellent...that put a big smile on our face :) About the WiFi, we're sorry about that...there was a little work going on around the area and we weren't the only ones affected. However, the issue is sorted now. Thank you for highlighting the location, cleanliness and comfort :) We hope to host you again! Cheers, Zostel

Good place, clean and close to train station. Bathroom outside the dorm (good thing), laudry and breakfast. Jaipur is a dispensable city, but if you insist going, this is a good place to stay.

Hi there! Thank you for highlighting the location and the cleanliness. We have bathrooms attached to the dorm as well as outside, always better to have more, isn't it :) Happy to know you enjoyed the facilities! About Jaipur though, we respectfully disagree. This city is bubbling with energy, life and culture...there's plenty to see, do and experience here. Come by again, and we'll show you Jaipur in such a way you'll fall in love :) Cheers, Zostel

Excellent place, beautiful and clean rooms. Good restaurant on the rooftop, although the service in there could be better (like everywhewre in India). Very relaxing, with music all day and movies at night. They sell camel safaris through the desert as well.

One of the best places i've been in India. Next to City palace, where you can get a boat ride to Jag Mandir, and all other places to visit in Udaipur. Very easy to find (everyone knows it). They have a rooftop restaurant where they sell BEER (in India thats relevant, cause not every plae sells or allow alcohol) with the nicest view to the Pichola lake. Staff is cool, every bed has it own locker, reading lamp and wall socket and Wifi was good. Clean, comfortable and fun.

Hello! Good to know we're famous...everyone knows us, yay! Good to know you loved the location...we're so close to the City palace, we're almost hugging it. And happy you liked the rooftop restaurant as well, it's the best place to unwind during sunset! Glad you loved the staff, facilities and the rooms. We hope our paths will cross soon...visit us again :) Cheers, Zostel

Hotel Avon International

Aurangabad, India
89%

very close to the airport, clean and comfortable, with a restaurant on the roof. They can sell you trips to Ajanta and Ellora, but I believe it is a good thing to bargain a little. The trip to Ellora, by the way, includes other places that are not woth paying to see, if i can give a piece of advice, try to ask for a non AC car and ask not to take you to all the places, just Ellora, Bibi ka Maqbara and, if you have time, maybe the Daulatabad fort and try to get a better price.


Anjali Homestay

Mumbai, India
40%

Hard to find and far from the city train (40 minute walk). When I arrived for 3rd night they said I didn't had a reservation, although I booked through hostelworld, so they offered me a spot in the livingroom over a blanket after everyone went sleeping for half price, which I didnt accept. Service is not good, since theres only one employee for everything, who didn't speak english well. Things were kinda messy and not clean. I believe there better options for budget travellers.


Curitiba Backpackers Hostel

Curitiba, Brazil

Duas coisas ruins: 1- tive um crise alérgica de espirros. Acho que devia ter algum tipo de mofo na fronha. 2- os beliches de madeira eram muito altos e flexíveis. Qualquer movimento no andar de baixo parecia um terremoto no andar de cima. Pra visitar a cidade é legal, mas pra dormir mesmo, puts, não ficaria lá de novo.

Pousada Rancho Hanna

Petar, Brazil
86%

Atençao: o preço aqui é para a estaia SEM café da manha, que cobrado à parte é R$ 15,00. Fora isso o lugar é bem legal, vale a pena ficar por ao menos mais de um dia, caso você esteja indo para o Petar. Lá eles ainda tem contato de guias para te levar ao parque e dicas de outras atrações, como a caverna do Diabo. Só ficar na pousada também vale, ja que eles tem um braço de rio banhável nos fundos, uma tirolesa, mesa de bilhar e bastante espaço ao ar livre. Não tem internet!

Q4 Hotel

I've been to lots of hostels but this is the WORST PLACE EVER. It's the WORST BATHROOM I've seen in my life (and i've seen lots of ugly bathrooms). There's only a GLASS DOOR without lock separating the shower from the bedroom, even in mixed bedrooms. The toilet room is so small is hard even to get in. They have lots of crazy rules and punishments, besides they broke my lock and removed my things off saying that I was on the wrong bed, but it was an employee who told me to take that bed. Terrible

Wanderfalls Guesthouse

Niagara Falls, USA
89%

A comfy and familiar enviroment that makes it feel like home, Caroll is super friendly to everyone. Clean and warm bedrooms, clean and private bathrooms outside the bedroom. The bad thing: they don't have a 24h reception. So you have to say the EXACT TIME of your arrival when you book, otherwise there wont be anyone to open the door for you. If you're not sure of when you're arriving at the time of you book, which is usual for backpackers, this is a problem.

We are happy you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your nice comments about our hostel. However, we do NOT need to know a guest's exact arrival time when they book since many people have not planned their transportation yet. We do ask that guests notify us by the morning of their arrival with their planned arrival time so we can be sure to be at the hostel to greet them especially in the off-season. We are a small home hostel and as such do not have a 24 hour desk.

Urban Holiday Lofts

Chicago, USA
91%

There's only 2 bad things about this one, the rooms are kinda noisy due to the wood floors, so you will always listen to people walking on the upper floor. Not really a problem if you have a pair of earplugs, which every backbacker should have. Other thing is that they close the common area at night, probably beacuse of the same noise. Nonetheless it's a nice and comfy place, clean and clear bedrooms, good bathrooms outside the room, and Jason, at the front desk, is the nicest guy ever.

The place has a nice "small city in Arizona" feeling. The hostel itself is very comfortable. Bedrooms and bathrooms very clean an private. Not much of a party place to meet people, but if you like small hostels with an intimate 'home' feeling where you can meet peple at the breakfast table or in the TV room, this is the place. Their day tour to Grand Canyon is for sure A LOT better than any west-rim bus tour from Vegas. Sadly I could not get the Sedona tour.

Hostel Cat

Las Vegas, USA

BAD: Looks like it was a motel they put 10 beds and a locker in each room. So very narrow space specially for reaching the lockers, which is none. In vegas nice hotels are really cheap so for a hostel they should offer a little more. They don't have a 24 hour reception and the kitchen is kinda messy. GOOD: They have night and day activities to gather people. I didn't take any beacuse of my short schedule. Tthey might be cool, but i can't say.

Don't miss the 'celebrity tour' they offer. Okay, you hate celebrity worshipping, (so what are you doin in LA!?) but, anyways, take it. Mikel, the german/italian driver-guide is the funniest. Besides they has a different activity every night. Usually i don't like big hostels, but their activities allways help to group people. Não perca a 'celebrity tour'. Ok, você odeia celebriades (então não vá pra LA), mesmo assim pegue o tour. Mikel o motorista-guia é o melhor.

Só tem um problema nesse lugar, não se pode conversar na área comum depois das 22h ou por aí. Antes disso é só diversão, um dos melhores hostels que estive nos USA. Os chuveiros tbm poderiam ser mais privativos. There is only one problem with this place, you cant talk in the common area after 22h or something, and there is no 24h reception. Before that is always fun, one of the funnyest hostels i've been in the US. Showers could be more intimate as well.


St Christopher's Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain
100%

O hostel é gigante, então as vezes parece um shopping center, mas os walking tours que eles organizam ajudam a conhecer o pessoal. O mais estranho é o chuveiro, tem um botão que voce aperta para sair a água e outro que voce gira para escolher a temperatura, mas é impossível decifrar se está no quente ou frio! Poderiam abrir também as janelas dos quartos ao menos uma vez por dia, o cheio fica meio enjoativo.


Las Musas Hostel

Madrid, Spain
97%

O lugar é excelente, organiza Walking Tours e Pub Crawls (na veredade são night club crawls, o que eu não recomendo) e outros eventos, o que é muito bom pra conhecer outros hóspedes. Só tem UM problema: a porta do banheiro NÃO TRANCA. Ou seja, privacidade zero. Você precisa por algum aviso na porta para que ninguém abra. E a porta dos armários também não trancava, mesmo com o cadeado... não entendi por que. Fora isso é um lugar sensacional, tem tudo o que você precisa.

Ciak Hostel

Muito boa localização, perto do metro, funcionários atenciosos. Tem tudo o que você precisa e, por ser um lugar pequeno, é fácil conhecer outros hóspedes. Infelizmente não tem armários com tranca suficientes. Se Houvesse um para cada cama, seria melhor. Os funcionários são atenciosos e Carlo foi muito simpático. Excelente custo benefício.

Maison

Não tenho do que reclamar, a localização é a melhor. Da estação de trem levei apenas 15 minutos para chegar e de lá chega-se ao Duomo em apenas 5. Não tem café da manha, mas isso não é problema. Yuri foi sempre atencioso e, por ser um lugar pequeno, é muito fácil conhecer outros hóspedes, fiz muitas amizades por lá. Outra coisa boa: as janelas dos quartos são abertas todos os dias durante a limpeza, o que faz o ar circular e não manter aquele cheiro de quarto coletivo, comum em outros hostels.

Residenza Santa Croce

Venice, Italy

O hostel oferece uma cama e banheiro, só. Sem wi-fi, sem café-da-manha, sem área comum, sem cozinha. É o suficiente pra passar a noite. O quarto é muito espaçoso e tem a MELHOR VISTA DA JANELA que eu já vi na minha vida, direto para o Grand canal. Caro pelo que oferece, como tudo em Veneza, uma cidade sem muitas opções. Ótima localização e boa segurança, cada cama tem um armário individual para guardar e trancar pertences pessoais e o quarto também tem uma geladeira. Recomendo.

O lugar é bem novo, inaugurou há cerca de 3 meses. Tudo muito novo e limpo. Cada cama tem um armário grande, suficiente pra guardar todos os seus pertences e trancar. A localização também é muito boa próxima ao metro e a vias importantes. Umberto e especialmente o brasileiro Rafael foram muito atenciosos. Infelizmente a cidade estava vazia e o hostel também, então não houve muita interação com outros hóspedes. Um pouco caro, mas Milão não tem muitas opções. Recomendo.

pertinho da Gare du Nord, tem wi-fi gratis e 2 PCs. O banheiro é limpinho, mas o chuveiro é meio bizarro, tem que apertar um botao que libera um jato de 20 segundos de agua e tem q ficar apertando ate terminar o banho. Talvez seja economico, mas um ducha seria mais confortavel. As instalaçoes sao boas e tem cara de recem reformado. Peca por nao ter armarios pra guardar objetos/ bagagens. A atendente brasileira tbm é muito legal. Gostei!

Central Hostel

É um hostel baratinho, mas só tem o basico. Se nao me engano a internet era paga e nao tinha armarios. Mas a localização compensa. o banheiro e meio bizarro, tem 3 boxes, bem apertadinhos, mas a porta do banheiro é bem em frente e nao pode ser trancada, pois outros podem querer usar, privacidade zero. A localizacao e o preço compensam.


Everton Hostel

Liverpool, England
67%

Um hostel barato e completo, café, wi-fi, 2 PCs, armarios, cobertor, tudo incluso no preço. Tem banheiro e cozinha no quarto, o que na verdade é BASTANTE inconveniente, pois fica sempre cheirando a comida ou banheiro, ou os dois. Fica a uns 15min do trem e a uns 20 do centro e regiao dos pubs. Ressalva para os funcionarios, que sao inexistentes, so vi um quando fiz o check in e nunca mais. Self-service total. Ate pra fazer o check out é só deixar a chave. Nao vi ninguem nem fazendo limpeza.
