What a gem. Perfectly located in Harare. Not far from the main city centre and close to shops and good restaurants. The atmosphere was incredible and I loved the swimming pool. Wifi is a small fee but the fact that it is timed is weird. Rather offer people MBs. There is free wifi at the coffee shops close by if you really insist on not paying for internet. Otherwise, the kitchen had a few things which were necessary but was missing many utensils.
It is based in the suburbs but this is a place I would definitely consider if I'm in Bulawayo again. The owners were incredible people and they really made me feel at home. It is quaint and I loved the serenity around. There were a few others around at the time which made it even more enjoyable. The small fee for the wifi is really reasonable. The kiosk shelf where food is available for a small fee was also much needed.
The reason I chose this hostel as opposed to others was because this was the one hostel which did not have a negative review about the staff. I found the management and the front desk person during the day were reluctant to do their jobs. I was passed from post to pillar when all I needed was a map of the town. I've been to many hostels and this is by far the worst staff and management service I've received. Make sure from the start that guests know where the amenities are located
There were bed bugs in the bed, got bitten badly. But other than that, a great place.
You can't stay anywhere better, they were so professional booking my Chernobyl Tour and the staff were super friendly. Loved the restaurant downstairs, lots of activities to do. Only issue were the mosquitoes but once you close the window and put on the a/c, all was good
Great hostel but just found the atmosphere weird - the staff were super friendly but then again, they appeared lathargic. But a quiet with the most amazing setting within the building. If you want to feel part of the social crowd, this might not be the most ideal. But if you want to relax, need the quiet - this is the perfect place. The staff could have been more knowledgeable about the buses and trains to major cities in and out fo Lviv (or at least a website that has the info)
How do you sum this place up into 500 characters... Lina was amazing. Free breakfast each morning and a different one each time. If you want to meet people and have the social time of your life, this is the place. The place is very communal. While it had only one shower but even when the hostel was full, the hot water never ran out and there was enough time to each take a shower. Lina's speech of where to go in town is a must. Get away from the usual hostel vibe and try communal Vilnius
Hostel was perfect for a short + long stay. There is something in the water at this place as people were just ready to chat, chill-lax, have a drink at the local bars - everyone was easy going. Loved the kitchen set-up and free washing machine use. As for the breakfast, continental for 5PLN but still good. Depending which room you get, it can be noisy because they have a construction site across the road
Besides not being able to get wifi in the dorms, I keep returning to this place because the owner and staff will always make you feel welcome. Perfectly located - very close to airport shuttles. And on top of it, great choice of places to eat from. This is my second time that I've stayed at the hostel
having stayed in a number of hostels across the globe for the past 7 years, this stands up to being in one of the top 10 I've been to. Positioned in the old city, not too far from the bus station - staff were friendly and very accomodating. Sasha was always ready to assist anyone in the hostel who needed assistance what ever their situation, well done
Anna was amazing, she really made me feel at home and when I arrived, I really felt welcomed... was informed about the city and told of all the things I need to know about getting around. NOTE: if you're not big into smoking, then this might not be the best place to stay at but being a non-smoker myself, I still loved it. I stay 3 nights and it was quaint, quiet and relaxing. Close to some great places to eat out and not that far from the main attractions. Very close to Slavija Square
Amazing time while staying at the Yellow, only issue is that staff were very friendly in the beginning but when there was a bit of a room allocation issue, then it was as if they were doing me a favour to keep me in the same room for my extra nights of stay, But atmosphere was chilled and relaxed, met great people. Place felt really clean. Most of the facilities are there, wifi, etc
I have an issue that you can only check in between 5pm and 9pm... what kind of place is this? The rooms are pleasant but my locker was smelly. They locked the bathrooms upstairs and had to use the bathrooms downstairs... very inconvenient (is it ever peak season at this place). The walls are paper thin that you can hear the noise form the room next door. For the price I paid, I'm disgusted, I've stayed in better and more more affordable hostels around the world and in Europe.
Really enjoyed the staff and how they accommodated me, very friendly, warm and welcoming. Only issue was the shower head wouldn't stay in a good position to left it on the clip on the wall. Other than that, very relaxed atmosphere.
On a positive, the staff were the best ever. On a negative, 2euros for that type of breakfast... I've had better for free
Amazing place to stay in Athens... Great breakfast, close to metro lines, in quaint area where you can experience the most authentic Greek food around. near theatre district if you understand Greek or just love the arts regardless of language. Went during a quieter spell, so might have a more vibrant atmosphere in summer but now it was relaxed and comfortable. Loved the view of the acropolis from the roof top Amazing rooms and the sharing facilities rates best I've ever seen in the world
On arrival, didn't realise I had to check in next door but small issue... Big issue was that I booked an all male room and ended up in a mixed room. In addition, I had to pay tax above the price listed on the booking. Worst part was that I had a room mate who invited someone into the room and that person ended up vomiting all over the bathroom. But besides that, loved the penthouse and people I met there... Great place to stay
