I was just passing through and it met my needs - somewhere to sleep and clean. PROS: Excellent showers. CONS: Not the quietest of places with people crashing around late at night. HOT TIP: Take sometime to walk around the old part of Exeter near the Cathedral - Lovely.

If you can stomach the price & keep you expectations low, it'll do. PROs: Location. CONs: Staff weren't helpful, started with security guy who was too busy chatting up a girl to challenge us on entry; unhelpful reception girl, we had to go back to reception later once we found there were no sheets in the room & travel desk guy who couldn't be bothered to sort tickets for us cause he was going home soon. Also you pay for internet! HOT TIP: Go to Leicester Sqr for cheaper theatre tickets.

I love Miami Beach and if your looking for a quieter hostel this is the one for you. PROs: Location and not a party hostel, although there is the opportunity party if you want to. CONs: WIFI only available in the lobby. HOT TIP: No breakfast at Hostel, so try Jerry's Famous Deli one block down Collins Ave.

AAE Clarion Universal, Orlando, USA

9th Aug 2012

Perfect location but I wouldn't want to stay long here. My room was musty and a little damp. PROs: Location for Universal is beyond perfect. 15 minutes walk to main gate! CONs: Huge hotel style complex so lacks any real charm. Bar some pool time I wouldn't have wanted to spend anytime during the day here. HOT TIPS: They will store your bags after you check out if you want to squeeze in another day in one of the parks!

City Hostel Seattle, Seattle, USA

7th Aug 2012

This is a great place to stay in Seattle. PROs: Location. Its right in the middle of everything and you can walk nearly everywhere. CONs: This place was really busy when I was there. I had a change in itinerary (this is my own fault) and the hostel did find me room to stay (so plus points for them!) but I had to dot around a few rooms. So be sure of your booking and book as early as possible. HOT TIPS: Great kitchen facilities. Real easy to eat in and save some cash.

29th Jul 2012

Stayed for 4 nights and was well worth it. PROs: Location is as close as your going to get to Downtown for the price. CONs: WIFI gets a bit sketchy in the rooms. HOT TIP: Ask for a room on the lower floors. 3rd Floor is a long way up!

Wanted a place in central Chicago, but their map was incorrect and this motel is +25 miles outside Chicago Downtown. So after arriving at the (wrong) location as stated on HostelWorld, I had to book alternate accommodation at the last minute. They didn't answer my emails and were quite happy to charge me the no show fee. Disgusted with the customer service and the incorrect listing. I would never have booked here had I known.

Downtown Washington Hostel, Washington DC, USA

25th Jul 2012

Had a great stay for a couple of nights. PROs: Location only a 20 minute walk to Capitol Building and 10 minutes to Metro. CONs: Mattresses are super heat reflective, not even the aircon could keep me cool. HOT TIP: If travelling from Ronald Reagan Airport to the Hostel, catch the Metro, you save about $18 on a one way trip.

Amazing location and its party central! PROs: Location is 2 blocks from South Beach's Ocean Drive. CONs: There is little respect at night if your sleeping and no enforcement of quiet rules by hostel. HOT TIP: Bring plenty of cash for shopping and night clubs, its not cheap, but a lot of fun.

Reggae Hostel, Kingston, Jamaica
9.1
5th Jul 2012

The hostel has only been open a year, still the best hostel in the Caribbean. PROs: Location is great and the staff more than helpful. Its at a great price too. CONs: Internet can be slow, hardware needs to be reset a couple of times a day. Be prepared there isn't any aircon and it can get really hot at night. HOT TIP: Usually on Sunday evenings there's a free BBQ. The Jerk Chicken is a speciality! **Thanks Scotty, Zana & team for a great stay!**.

Inn La Galleria, St. John's, Antigua And Barbuda
5.7
24th Jun 2012

Budget accomodation in Antigua is limited. The La Inn Galleria suffers from being situated a long way out of St Johns and expensive for what it is. In his hay-day I would imagine this was quite a place to stay with great views over the bay, but now is a little run down. The staff are fantastic and very helpful. The breakfast and the internet is also good. You'll need to consider hiring a car to see anything though. Beaches are 10 minutes walk from the hotel.

My second visit and for good reason. PROs: Fantastic location at the best price. CONs: Err... Maybe not always the easiest place to get chatting to people. HOT TIP: Go to the Tourist Information on Calle Marina (near Pier 3) for maps of Old San Juan.

9th Jun 2012

The dorms are clean and comfortable but the common area is old and dirty. PROs: Location is good if your travelling to the West of the PR. CONs: Not a nice experience cooking here. Everything is old and dirty. HOT TIP: Don't waste too much time search for cheap accommodation away from HostelWorld, there isn't anything under about U$120 on the island.

Posada San Francisco, San Juan, Puerto Rico
9.4
2nd Jun 2012

Perfect location and at the right price. Puerto Rico is sooo expensive for accommodation, so it was great to find Posada. The owners are very professional in their approach and run a tight ship. Their welcoming email is a little aggressive but look past it your going to have a great stay.

1st Jun 2012

Great location at the right price, but really didn't enjoy my stay, as the rooms were soooo hot. Make sure you check the weather and get a private with aircon if needed. PROs: Location and price. CONs: Lack of aircon in dorm rooms. HOT TIP: Don't stay too long in SD, there isn't very much to do.

CONs: Lack of aircon in dorm rooms. HOT TIP: Make sure you have a torch, we had 3 power cuts whilst I stayed there. Not the hostels fault but a regular supply issue.

Pros: - The hotel is only a few blocks from the main square in Zona Colonia. Makes for a great base to explore. - The restaurant serves a fantastic menu and worth an evening in finished with drinks on the roof terrace. Cons: - The place is super quiet so lacks any real atmosphere, - Our room, didn't have window in the bathroom so everything smelled of damp. Comments: - We got better rate booking through HostelWorld.

Tierraplana Cool Hostal, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
8.3
14th May 2012

Santo Domingo is not well served with hostels, so this is a good hostel but not a great hostel. Needs to improve its social image. Near impossible to socialize. PROs: TVs in the bedrooms. CONs: Bit shabby, doesn't live up to the promise of the photos. And only Spanish spoken by staff. HOT TIP: Taxi drives in th colonial zone will at least double their prices, so don't be afraid to haggle the price down. There's always another cab around the corner.

13th Apr 2012

Location is right in the middle of the old town which is perfect. PROs: Location. CONs: If your room faces the street its noisy nearly all the time, no good if your a light sleeper like me. HOT TIP: Ask for extra blankets, gets real cold at night.

Lovely hostel, very new and nicely presented. Staff very helpful! Noisy at night and early in the morning if your in the private rooms at the front of the house as the alley out front is a major pedestrain walk way and there are a few bars too. This does mean though that it is well situated for everything in old Bogota.

Brand new and purpose built there is a little to complain about, but for it being a 15 minute walk from the main square. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and always had a smile for you. It was quite quiet there which suited us well and with good facilities its was a nice place to relax after a busy day as a tourist!

Locations was excellent & the building a charm, but the staff were sometimes hard to find. Security is terrible, with public accessing the courtyard restaurant during the day, the next point of security is the lock on your door (if you have a private room). The rooms were comfortable, but cold. Plenty of blankets were supplied. The shared bathroom was clean and well kept, but hot water was not always available. Key highlight was Antonio's mining tour, which isn't for the faint hearted.

Simple lacked in character and because it was small there was no opportunity to develop conversation with theother people staying. This shouldn't out you off, as we used to as a night over before flying to Santiago and it did just what we wanted. Had we stayed longer though I would have wanted a little more.
