This place is wicked. There is a pool, wifi and it's right by the beach. The staff is friendly and hook you up with whatever you need. It's a 20 min walk up to the main town but you can also take the taxi for €5. Would recommend and looking forward to coming back in the high season.

Nice little hostel with great lounge to hang and meet people. They have beer for €1 in the vending machine, for those late night cravings. No breakfast but there are places close by. Great location. Wifi only works in the lobby/lounge. Staff are friendly and helpful for tours and directions. Cleaning service daily with bed making. Would recommend

Great location, can walk to all main sites. It was very easy to just walk in and no one would ask if you stayed there. We left our bags for the day and the luggage room isn't locked. There are lockers in the rooms so bring a padlock. Breakfast included: cucumber, tomatoe, hard boiled egg, one bun. One toilet and shower for the floor of 3 rooms. Tried going to another floor to use the facilities but was told 'not suppose to do so'. Good enough hostel for the price.

This hostel is in a quiet location, 15 min walk downhill to the Fisherman's Wharf. The hostel is clean and the staff are very helpful. Full kitchen in the basement with a pool table so you can make any meal and hang out. There is also a TV room with comfy chairs. I stayed in the 24 bed dorm, I would not recommend to any solo travelers that are looking to meet people. The toilet and shower were A+ and private, individual, behind a locked door. Great to have FREE breakfast. Sat MISSION tour a must

No HOT water...I tried about three different times throughout the day for hot water and there was none. The staff was very helpful when you first arrived they highlighted stuff on the map...close to metro stop, about 30 min to downtown...okey for the price if your just going to sleep, not an easy place to meet people...only microwave for "kitchen", would not recommend because there is no hot water...good wifi

Very clean and large rooms. This hostel is more of a hotel with individual bungalow type rooms. Very quiet with TV. Large washrooms with toliet paper and soap provided. Great decoration of rooms with a home feeling. Could stay for a week to relax.

This hostel is not worth the extra cost. Use it's clean and the staff is more than friendly. But the room we had was nothing special. Compared to your average Indian accomidation, beds are in same condition. A/C didn't work. The bathroom was a small balcony turned into a toilet and sink that wasn't connected to anything, so when you washed your hands your feet would be splashed. If your on a budget, go somewhere else.

One of the cleanest hostels I've ever stayed at in India. Very nice rooms with free toilet paper and clean sheets. Free towels too. Free coffee and tea all day long. The down side is the hostel is 100rupee, 30 min out of the town centre by lemoncar...but very helpful staff make sure you know where to go. Prince is a great owner, very welcoming and very helpful...would recommend

Clean and friendly hostel. Helpful staff gives detailed map of town and highlights to see. No breakfast but loads of places close by to eat at. Good location just at the edge of the centre, everything in McLeod Ganj is walking distance. Only complaint was that wifi had low connection, but all of McLeod Ganj seemed to have this problem. Would recommend.

One of the worst hostels I've stayed in...showers and toilets are very dirty and out of order half the time...no free wifi (I would suggest to go to the Starbucks that's a 2 min walk for free wifi, it's cheaper than the hostel charges) no free breakfast but large kitchen with not enough pots, mugs or bowls...it's close to a tube stop but far far from anything but Oxford street I would not recommend this hostel to anyone, even if your looking to save money

Great hostel run by pleasant Moroccans willing to share there knowledge with you for free! The hostel is just outside the old city and walking distance to the ocean. It's clean and great atmosphere that gives the beach side feel. Would recommend this hostel to anyone from the backpacker to older couple looking for a relaxing weekend away from Marrakech

The staff are always yelling at each other...don't get the breakfast, it cost extra and my food had mold on it! Make sure to ask for toilet paper at the desk, it doesn't cost anything but for some reason they don't keep any in the toilet! The hostel is clean despite the moldy food and great atmosphere with excellent view of the city and sunset from the terrace...excellent location right beside main square of old town

This is a great value hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpfull with anything you need to enjoy your stay in Prague, they give you a full highlighted map of the city. The rooms are clean and each bed has its own small locker, right at the bed, to keep apple, money, passport safe! The shower and toilet are just as clean...only thing is the hostel is out of the city center...but close to a tram stop

This hostel has no atmosphere and very dirty, I would not step on the floor of our room without shoes...it's way overpriced...the kitchen is below average and there are taps missing on most sinks...the toilets don't flush and the shower is tiny, dirty and nowhere to hang your things...security is not great either, there a huge street party every night outside the hostel and anyone can just walk in...spend the money and try somewhere els

View Property Reply

sorry you didn't enjoy your stay but the street parties were a once off event for the Volvo ocean race and will not be happening again.i am aware this was inconvenient for some guests but for most it was an enjoyable experience and with regards people walking those were all guests who were staying and kept going out to enjoy the festival. our showers are standard size I will install hooks for cloths thanks for that feedback and our toilets do flush. sorry again.

Very good hostel with EXCELENT friendly staff...one suggestion would be to not let them sell you the Castle tour, you can do it yourself for a lot cheaper, it's only transport you get with the tour, still have to pay for entry and try for student price at Peles castle, I used my drivers license, big savings

This place is good for a one night stay if all you want to see is the Alhambra...NO WIFI or Internet, so make sure you plan an out before entering...the place was very dark and quiet. I never saw the staff and felt like I was sneaking in, because the door was wide open, every time I entered...it was more of a Days Inn than a hostel...also difficult instructions to follow and cost €2,40 bus ride to get there, you could walk if your into the 75 degree incline

One of the best hostels I've stayed at! Party every night....the host is amazing and very helpful...downside is that the place is under renovation so no kitchen, no fridge, and where all packed into one place, but we made it work out and still had loads of fun! There is also a nightclub right below the hostel so get your sleep in between 2:30am - 4:30am, not kidding the Spanish love to party and if you do too, go to this hostel!

This is the best hostel you will ever stay at! It's clean. The host sits you down for an hour with the map and tells you everything about Napoli, you can tell he loves his country and loves what he does. He cooked free 2-3 course meals every night, I ended up staying an extra night because the food was amazing and there's lots more to see in Napoli than people think, if you go to this hostel you will know what to do...it's worth a visit just for this hostel...will definetly stay again

The best hostel I've stayed at. The staff is very nice. It's very easy to meet people because you are all together. The kitchen has everything you need to cook. There are only 2 showers but for the price you pay this is what you'll get. Excellent location. For the instructions on how to get to the hostel you exit the train station on the left, than turn right. Florence is very easy to get lost, but you can pick up a free map at the information. I would definitely stay at this hostel again.
