11th May 2016

One of my all-time favourite hostels!! Sunnylake is a cosy and atmospheric getaway, bursting with the vibrant charm and bustle of the global travel community.A wonderful hideaway and an equally special city! Certainly one for the bucket-list :)

Good value for money and very secure.The room was nice, however I'm not sure my sheets were fresh and the showers were quite old and dirty...the basin was blocked in one, and the door had broken off on another.The wifi is free in the top floor common area only, otherwise you have to pay extra.The location is superb and I likely would stay again.The staff were not friendly.

Fantastic Interior design, extremely comfortable dorms and common area/balcony.The kitchen is well equipped, the staff were helpful, and would certainly stay here again.The shower could have been better...trying to balance the hot/cold took a lifetime.

By far the kindest hostel owner ever!! I spent 3 nights here, and enjoyed every minute of it :) the hostel is filled with character, and charismatic charm.The facilities, Location, cleanliness and breakfast are spot on! Theres also lots of information everywhere about travelling to Albania,Greece,Bulgaria and all of the different sites with Macedonia, the amount of knowledge is tremendous :) This goes down as one of my al-time favourite places, and I will no doubt be back again, it's great!

Well Well Well....So many rights, but some very bad points! The location is quite good, the hostel layout is perfect, and the place is super clean! Breakfast is also available throughout the day...cakes, cereal, jams etc. This is all good, but the big big problem is the staff.....there are no staff, in fact over the weekend I didn't see them, even existing guests had to check new guests in who had bookings and would ring the bell continuously.Big security Issue! How are towels not included?????

Superb Hostel, straight into my all-time favorites list.The interior oozes taste, and is an utterly fantastic environment, well thought out, and above all, well executed.The staff are professional, charismatic, and kind, the cleanliness is tip top, and the space itself is well laid out to cater to the needs of guests.Much thought has gone into designing this place, and I feel that the owners/management deserve a big thumbs up! Thoroughly recommendable!!!

This hostel has a great atmosphere and lots of character, the staff are lovely, and the hostel is very fair, for instance the laudry is 2 Lari, or free if you stay at least two nights.However..their were only 2 toilets for over 40 people and two showers which are together in a shared open bathroom.I would stay here again fir the atmosphere, but there are better and cheaper hostels elsewhere.

This is definitely by far the absolute WORST hostel in Gdansk.This place is well located and could potentially be great, however the staff, management and owner(s) are clueless alongside being rather rude.The place is a dump..don't stay there!!!

Perfect staff! This hostel is a true traveller hub, appealing in every way to the backpacking nomad.The interior is bright and spacious with large clean dorms and cosy common areas.The kitchen is well equipped with a homley feel and bathrooms are modern and looked after.The laundry is less than 1 euro and the hostel as a whole is great value for money!

Certainly one of my favourite hostels, and arguably the best in Belgrade.This hostel is an art piece! the furnishings are exquisite, and exceed what one expects of a hostel.With a great atmosphere, superb staff and clean surroundings, I would recommend to all.I do however think that the luggage storage charge is wrong and the hostelworld description, somewhat unappealing.A must visit hostel!

As a space the hostel is appealing, with clean comfortable airey rooms and we'll kept furnishings.Unfortunately the hostel was unlocked and staffless upon arrival, and so myself and two others waited for over 1 hour.The hostel is poorly signposted and the stairway is dark and dangerous at night.The location is poor and the staff were not easy going, however pleasent . I wouldn't stay again.

Having stayed at the top 5 hostels in Belgrade, I can assure you all, that this one is about as flawless as is possible.The staff are professional, charasmatic and knowledgeable, the luggage storage is highly convenient, and as a whole, the hostel is clean... in fact, extremely clean! and thouroughly well kept throughout, as well as being competitively priced.

Definitely a place to stay!

Trip&Sleep Hostel, Belgrade, Serbia
6.0
18th Jul 2015

One of the worst hostel experiences of my many years of traveling! Firstly, when you pay for a bed, you expect to be able to sleep to a certain extent...not here.Under the floor of the cheap dorms there was a live gig and almost touching the windows outside were two huge amps and speakers .The hostel had no atmosphere whatsoever, and was by far the most impersonal place ever.Run like a business, there was no vibe or character and the manager was rude and nasty!!! Don't stay here!

We are so sorry for mentioned issues! As you were our guest in our Budget option, you should ask from reception to provide you with give you a bed in regular option. T&S Budget is more party Hostel, with nice Bar in basement. Majority of guest there are youth searching for party and a great fun! :) Both options have the same standards of cleanliness (cleaning agency in charge), so we will investigate what had happened! Hope to see you again! :)

Staff were super friendly, and genuine.This hostel is certainly great value for money, even if the location is a tad away from the center, and the kitchen facilities rather below average. It should further be noted that the pictures on the website are nothing like the reality and must be incredibly old.However, I would recommend this place, as the atmosphere was nice and the beds etc were clean.But I've seen the basement 4 bed dorm and I wouldn't be happy if I were staying there!

This hostel is by far the best option in Sarajevo.The atmosphere is great, the staff are lovely and helpful (even if the information given is often incorrect), and the cleanliness of the place is top notch.I would however say that the toilets are far to small, and the kitchen could do with a few more working stoves and utensils.

This hostel is faultless The location is super central (5 mins straight walk to the central plaza) and for me the property itself with its rustic & historical charm, combined with it's interior layout is ideal for any traveller intent on experiencing & visiting attractions & Ukrainian culture.The staff are soooooo helpful & friendly, and along with the hostel being clean and tidy, it's biggest bonus is the fact they offer FREE washing!!!

This is the best hostel in Bucharest for certain.Usually I always choose the very cheapest hostel wherever I stay, however on this occasion, I saw this hostel on the web, checked out the images, and thought it looked fantastic & therefore worth a night at least.And I can assure you all, it does not disappoint.Absolutely superb on every level, especially the design front; it literally oozes character and the garden area is awesome! Everything is clean, organised and perfectly presented.Go for it!

Price wise, there are better alternatives available.However in terms of the whole package, Art Hostel seems to have an edge on it's competition.For instance the breakfast alone in worth 2 euro; it's truly a spread fit for a king.The location is also superb; 5 mins walk from the main boulevard and In terms of security, it certainly keeps the vampires at bay with multiple key doors from the street to the rooms.Alongside it's unique character and charm, it's also clean & tidy and so worth a stay!

23rd Aug 2014

One of my favourite hostels of all time.Why?....well I'm actually a little unsure myself; It simply felt right, perhaps like falling in love.The place itself is very simple, and consists of an open plan kitchen/lounge area with a cosy outside terrace, along with clean, well equipped bathrooms.The price is a tad higher than rival hostels, however the location is grand and breakfast, although minimal (a tasty croissant) adds to the charm.It certainly has everything one needs.Worth staying at!

Unfinished you could say and still under construction.My first point, and the most important (due completely to imaginative stupidity) is that there were bed bugs! I was bitten over ten times that night (and still itching now).The mattresses are layed out on wooden industrial palets in an old wooden attic, on a large piece of old vinyl; A PARADISE FOR BUGS AND INSECTS! The positive is the great location and brand new and clean bathrooms, but they have no idea how to run a hostel.No signs either!

View Property Reply

Hello and thanks for a review and some good words but you are the only one who had such a problem with bed bugs. There are NO BED BUGS at all in here! And you said "thanks and see you" without mention about this upon your staying and check out also! Many guests like our mattresses over wooden pallets - they are really comfortable! Mark from the reception!

Ok, I really can't fault this hostel.But would I stay here again?....No is the answer.My reasons are simple.On paper this hostel is the perfect catch.With great facilities, lots of people, kind and attentive staff; such an option is surely perfect... right?Well, if your a cautious first time teen, an unadventurous weekender, and of course....a euro boozer; this is certainly the place.However if your looking for non-commercial, "real" charm, then you should look elsewhere.Not my cup of tea.

The staff were great fun and full of personality, which gave the place a nice vibe.As it's new hostel, everything was clean, tidy and well organised.This hostel's greatest strength is the wifi; there are three seperate connections, one on each floor, which all seem to be incredibly powerful.Although the location isn't the best, the road outside leads straight to the city centre.This is a perfect hidehout for the cultured tourist, not for the boozers.I would stay again for sure!

Thank you very much for your review! Proper maintainance of the hostel and it's facilities is one of our priorities. We are not in the very downtown of the city but in prestigious neighborhood of Sofia. Vitosha broadwalk and National Cultral Center is just 15 mins by feet.

In all honesty, this place is massively overrated.How it received such high ratings (the reasons why I picked it) is strange to say the least.The staff were miserable & unfriendly, with a 24 hour frown.Although the rooms are bathrooms were very clean, their was no PC to use (as stated on hostelworld) and only 1 shower had hot water.Their was also no atmosphere and the location wasn't great.Their are far better options out there!

Best option in Phnom Penh, and I stayed at the the top three, i.e, The White Rabbit (Don't stay here) and Me Mate's Place (also very good).As I highlighted in my review of the latter hostel, Me Mate's Place & Lovely Jubbly are both run by the same company, and I have to say, they have done a pretty decent job.Price wise, value for money is superb and I promise you, you shan't find anything as good elsewhere in the city.This is my personal favorite, and I do indeed recommend it.

This Hostel, along with Lovely Jubbly Hostel (The better option in my opinion) are apart of the same company, and are by far the best hostels in Phnom Penh, as well as being the cheapest.If you don't stay at either one of these places, you are really missing out.Prices to seem to heavily fluctuate for reasons unknown to me, and I must say that unless you pre-book, you will struggle to get a bed.

Great atmosphere for sure, great location, situated literally right, slap bang in the city centre.Definitely a more party orientated hostel, so the quieter ones may not approve of such a hostel, however I myself am not a travelling boozer, and I thought it was a great place to stay.To be honest, how picky can one be when backpacking on a budget, especially when there are options like this for around $3, I mean come the F on.Totally a place worth staying at.

Pretty good for Myanmar standards.The word "Good' sums this hostel up for sure, not excellent, not average but "Good".I feel that for once I really can't elaborate, for every aspect was fine, it did the job and it did it in a manner that was, well...,Good!....Oh, I should add that, if you stay here and return at some other point, you receive $1 off, which is quite..........wait for it.........GOOD

In all honesty, it's Japan! I expected the best, and that's exactly what I got.For an incredibly expensive country, this hostel is well priced, well located, clean, etc....etc....etc...But for me it's strength was the atmosphere, which was mainly down to the buildings layout.The common area was truly awesome; a big space with a very large central table, pc's, a kitchen and a huge tv, it was perfect to meet up and chat with an array of different characters from all over the world.Hey, It's Japan!

Great hostel, oozing with character and charm.The staff give 100% and are extremely dedicated to helping out wherever they can.Although the location isn't that good, bikes are available for rent & generally the building itself along with the facilities & cleanliness, make up for it's only downside.I would indeed recommend this place.

Clean, comfortable hostel, where you can have a really fresh and tasty breakfast if you so wish.Dorms were presented well with many high performance fans to cool you down.All in all, a safe bet for a hostel, the only negative for me which would stop me from ever going back would be the vast numbers of mosquitos within the hostel grounds, which is due to the fact that it's literally a garden area and quite damp.I was bitten more times during my stay here than my previous 2 weeks in Thailand!

This hostel is located 5 mins from the historic centre on the same street as a few other hostels.In terms of facilities & cleanliness this hostel is in very good standing.The kitchen is also exceptional.However the free internet is actually just for browsing, you cannot open a website.You must also pay for wifi.This hostel is business orientated & it must be said that the staff were not at all friendly, so much so that I left this hostel & moved to a neighboring one.Not a place for socialising.

Located in the heart of Reeperbahn, opposite the subway station, this hostel is tucked away in a courtyard directly off of the main boulevard.The facilities are good & the place is clean & tidy, especially the bathroom which was rather impressive in size for a dorm room.It's definitely not a place for relaxation and quiet time.This hostel is generally for party people & I'm sure during peak season it gets rather loud & rowdy.However, I would definitely recommend it as it's great value for money.

The Hostel is a 10-15 min straight walk from Luxor Temple (You follow one road all the way).I stayed in a dorm room which was clean & presentable with great working AC.They have a roof terrace which is nice for chilling out, free breakfast & cheap tours; I payed £6 (UK) for a 5 hour tour of the Valley of the Kings (excluding ticket price), which is value for money.The wifi was also super & computers are available if you haven't brought your laptop or android etc.Definitely stay here!

Hi, thanks for staying here & enjoying your stay. Green Mango Inn is indeed a very good area ideal for international tourists like you, it's very safe & in fun part of the city just 15 minutes from the airport. We're also the only garden-style hostel in Metro Manila, complete wuth 24-hours dining area & bar, plus libraries of free books/magazines, etc. Have FUN! Unwind, relax, enjoy life & experience the Philippines & Asia here :) We have a page on Facebook, hope you "like" us & also tell other travellers about Green Mango Inn---affordable but comfortable place in Metro Manila. Warmest welcome! Apologies for the taxi to the airport that our staff reserved, reserved taxis usually want to charge high, we recommend that you guests go out to the main street and hail or get any ordinary taxi to the nearby airport, so much cheaper.

I thought the hostel was very good considering the price I paid.There were no bed bugs, however my sheets were covered in hair from the previous visitor.I had been given a double ensuite at 1st as my single room was taken (I didn't pay extra for the double which was great).The bathroom was clean enough although there was cold water only & squat toilets.The wifi was good but could only be used in the cafe area by reception.The hostel staff were helpful enough, but they do try to scam you.

Hostel New King, New Delhi, India
7.1
27th Mar 2012

The hostel location is Perfect, Right off the main bustling Road & in the heart of Old Delhi.Great food places close by, I myself was a little conservative on the food front so I choose a German bakery, which basically sells great western food with an Indian charm.The hostel was a hostel.The price reflects the hostel well.Very cheap, decently kept bathroom, cold shower, cool rooms (no ac though), chilled water availbale in lobby.There were bed bugs though but TBH all cheap hostels have them.
