Gion Ryokan Q-beh, Kyoto, Japan
9.4
3rd Jan 2015

This place is very cool... located in the most historic part of Kyoto and occupying a traditional ryokan building you really get the full Japanese experience. On the one hand you sleep on futons on the floor, like a ryokan, but in the dorms the beds are also capsule style. If you go in winter it will be warm in the room itself by the hallways don't seem to have heat so it's kind of anuncomfortable shower experience (also the showers are button-operated and work for about 15 seconds at a time...)

Read the directions!! And make sure you get the extremely helpful confirmation email they send you, because otherwise it is nearly impossible to find the hostel. It has no sign and the entrance is behind a nondescript white door with a keypad just past a tea shop on the left as you come from the train station. It is very close to the memorial park. Once you find it though the place is great! And the location couldn't be better.

I stayed at Terviseks for one night and they upgraded me to a private room because it was available and I arrived late... very nice of them! Also the location couldn't be better, right on the central square. Great common room as well.

The Babushka Grand Hostel, Odessa, Ukraine

28th Jul 2014

This facade of the building is under renovation which makes it very difficult to find. You have to take the first opening between the scaffolding as you're coming from the bus station and there's a small sign on a red door with the name. Besides getting lost trying to find it, this hostel is a really great value and looks like an old mansion inside. I'm not sure if this was just when I was there or all the time, but there seemed to be an abnormally high proportion of elderly guests..

You can get by with English, but it's definitely helpful to know some basic Russian or Georgian to communicate with the owner. However she's very helpful and the hostel is well located and great value.

Flying Pig Downtown, Amsterdam, Netherlands

1st Dec 2013

This place is way overhyped. It is a very large hostel and is also pretty loud. The staff are not especially friendly and they have this weird gate system to get in and out that makes the whole place feel contrived and institutional. The common area feels loud and stressful, not chilled out (even though they have a dedicated weed smoking section).

Stray Cat Hostel, Istanbul, Turkey

24th Nov 2013

Well the best part about this hostel is the tribe of cats that live there. It's also really well-decorated. The neighborhood is cool and very close to Taksim but a ways from the older, more touristy parts of Istanbul. Kind of a bohemian vibe going on here.

Great place if you want to stay in Kreuzberg, and a very social atmosphere. The rooms are clean and spacious. One bad thing—no bathroom in the common area so you have to go outside to the dorm building to use the bathroom.

Five Elements Hostel Frankfurt, Frankfurt, Germany

The hostel itself is clean and secure but it's in a really weird, possibly unsafe, neighborhood (the neighborhood around the train station), which is packed with hookers, junkies, casinos, and stripclubs. The atmosphere in the hostel is a bit stiff and businesslike.

Hostel Miturno, Mostar, Bosnia And Herzegovina
9.1
18th Jun 2013

Very well located near the old town, right next to cafes, bars, clubs, and about 20 minutes walk from train/bus station. Staff are friendly and helpful but are often not around (granted I seemed to be the only person there the night I stayed); they can often be found at the cafe across the street. One minor point about security is that the front door is often unlocked during the day, which would be fine if they were there all the time, but it seems they are not. However the rooms have locks.

Green Studio Hostel & Lounge, Belgrade, Serbia
9.4
13th Jun 2013

Green Studio owns two hostels, I stayed at both. Staff are friendly, helpful, always on hand 24/7 and great to party with, they take you out every night to the best spots. Also FREE LAUNDRY is an amazing bonus, but they don't have dryers so make sure you leave time for air drying. Negatives: Green studio lounge is a bit loud and cramped in the room, but its where the bar is on the ground floor; Green studio 1 (original) is 6 flights of stairs up. Both are on the same street as the train and bus.

Freeborn Hostel, Timisoara, Romania
8.9
12th Jun 2013

Freeborn is a very compact hostel; very centrally located. Staff are great and love to help with anything (can set up transfer to Belgrade for you). Facilities and cleanliness were great but I realized the next day I had insect bites all over me, which I assumed were bed bugs (but could have been something else), and still itch a week later. However it is a great hostel and without this inconvenience (which is surely temporary) I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

View Property Reply

Hey Camden! Great that you had a good time here and that you arrived safe to Belgrade! As for the insects that bit you, I am 100% that those are not bed bugs, most likely they are mosquito bites because we have a few of them over here. It is very important when you leave a comment to make sure that the information you leave is correct because it confuses people! All the best, Raul

Great staff who love to chat about anything for hours (Mihai and Cosmin) and will help with anything. Great, social common room and easy to meet people to go out with, although it is not a party hostel. Nice outdoor courtyard and spacious kitchen and great beds. Location cannot be beat, right on the "mirror street" between the two major squares of Cluj (i.e. 0 minute walk to downtown) about 20-30 minutes walk from train station. Fantastic games room with pool, ping pong, darts. Highly recommend.

Kismet Dao Hostel, Brasov, Romania
9.1
8th Jun 2013

Kismet Dao is in a villa near to the old town but not in it, which means its a bit closer to the train station than others, which was perfect for me. Staff were friendly and helpful but a little strange. Atmosphere was a little weird, the common room situation is okay but doesn't encourage socialization. Rooms are nice but could do with more electrical sockets. Very clean... A good hostel in general.

Stayed in one of the private rooms, which was an okay setup. Quite loud all night long and a bunch of people seemed to be hanging out right by the door til very late. Early check out time for a hostel in the nightlife district. A bit impersonal/non-cozy although it has a good bar. Overall the rooms are expensive (but then, all UK hostels are expensive) and its nothing to write home about, but the beds are comfortable.

Fantastic location right in the center, a few paces away from Hallgrimskirja (the symbol of Reykjavik). Very friendly staff, helpful with late arrivals and lots of advice. Great, clean bathrooms (there's a sauna!) and common areas, and rooms are cozy. Lots of character too and typically weird Icelandic decor. Overall the best hostel I've stayed at in Reykjavik (out of 3).
