Party hostel but not too bad. There is some noise coming from the bar downstairs. Room is nice with good a/c. Food is great.

Hey buddy, Thanks for the great review and feedback on your experience here, we are pleased to hear you think the food is great! Our bar closes at 11pm so that customers can either go to sleep or head to a different bar to continue the party but we apologise for any noise our neighbours bars make. Thank you again and have fun travelling, The team in Hue

Bit out of the way. Aggressive dogs on the street, avoid walking especially after dark. No atmosphere but I was the only person staying in the room. No common space aside from the cafe. No sink or mirror in the toilet/shower. Clean, safe, good wifi and an arctic breeze from the a/c. The lady running the place is nice and helpful.

I'm still staying at Spinners, probably will stay for a few weeks so it's definitely good enough. Could use better wifi though. Quite relaxed, I'm not even sure who all are employees at the hostel. Most guests seem to be staying for a longer time, working in town.

Alright, alright. Very clean, close to the city center. Nice cafe. Not a fan of the local Indian breakfast but it's a nice touch. Very hot during the night and got bled dry by mosquitos. Would suggest hostel to invest in window screens or even better - A/C.

Stops Hostel Varanasi, Varanasi, India

8th Feb 2015

I spent some 5 or so nights at Stops. Slept in one of the rooftop tents. As I was sick for most of the time, I didn't feel like leaving the building and glad to say I didn't have to. All you could need is provided. Too bad I couldn't participate on any of the city tours offered. Heard good things. If you're staying in the tents, take into account that there is apparently a wedding chapel nearby so every evening around 8-10PM they start loud celebrations. Drums, music, fireworks. Bring earplugs.

3rd Feb 2015

Quite an alright place to stay. Building is old and a bit rundown. "The fastest wifi in Delhi" works on/off and is not a good representation of the city's wifi offering. Common spaces are restricted to just the reception area. Doors are not locked. Bring your own padlock for the lockers. Room for improvement but no major complaints. I actually talked with one of the founders of the Zostel chain and I'm sure Zostel Delhi will improve with time.

Close to the train station, easy to find. Good facilities, free wifi in the lobby. I have not met one person during my travels who carried their own sheets so don't see why not just include them in the price. To each their own I guess. All you can eat breakfast was well worth it. Rather hotel-like so no real hostel atmosphere. Hefeweissbier on tap at a decent price. Good place to stay.

Not much to add to other reviews. It's a decent establishment to spend a night but you're not getting a lot of bang for your buck. I spent 8 nights here and the room was always more or less cold. As it got really cold outside, a couple nights were brutally cold. People were sleeping with their clothes on - that should give you an idea. I'd suggest spending a little extra in the wintertime and going somewhere else. Otherwise, no real complaints just... Meh. *shrug*

Old building, far from downtown, 2 minute walk to the beach. After staying on Granville Street (not the HI though) last time, I was looking for a more relaxed and quiet hostel. This was just perfect. The biggest asset here is without a doubt the nearby beach. Not a big fan of the long way to town (I'm cheap and I like to walk) but the nearest bus stop is not far. Breakfast is not included but there is a very good cafe/restaurant in the building. If you want to relax, this is your place.

Takes a bit of walking to get here. Very good facilities and clean too. Rather quiet during my stay and no real hostel atmosphere to speak of. Closer to Creekside than the Village but there is a nice lake within walking distance.

Good basic hostel. Like most HI hostels, a bit institutional but quality-wise very good. No air conditioning so after a hot day our room was like a furnace. Downtown Nanaimo may seem sleepy but after midnight it comes alive with throbbing bass. Bring earplugs just in case.

Good location, very good facilities and staff was most helpful. However, it would be nice to get a cup of coffee and some cornflakes or toast for 40 bucks. Sauna and BBQ are not that essential.

Has most everything you could ask for. Central enough but without much street noise to bother your sleep. Some shifty looking people outside though and I was even approached by a drug dealer right at the door. Bar downstairs but you can't drink elsewhere in the hostel. Also not sure if there was a proper common room somewhere.

Most adequate. Location is central but the street noise is terrible. You'll likely share a room with partiers. Great breakfast on saturday morning but the selection got gradually poorer the next few days. Get up early for bagels and muffins (if they're on offer that day).

Hello, Bagels and muffins are part of our breakfast every day, as well as toast, juice, fruit salad, coffee and tea. Cheers Pete

A bit institutional but it works. No specific traits to comment on. A good breakfast included. Clean. No lockers in the dorms though. Not much to do at the hostel but why would you spend your time there anyway? Dublin is a great city to explore. Excellent value for money.

A good, smaller hostel. Bit out of the way just the way I like it but still easily within walking distance of everything. Breakfast included and good facilities. Only small lockers in the rooms where you can store your valuables. I believe the common room and kitchen are only open between 08:00-23:00(?). The reception opens at around 09:00 which is a bit odd since I checked out at 08:45 and couldn't have breakfast since there was no one to unlock the kitchen... :-/

We are truely sorry our kitchen was not open on time the morning of your stay. A staff member slept on it and it was opened at 9. This really was a once off occurance as the kitchen is always opened for 8am. If guests are checking out early it is also possible to inform staff the night before and it will be opened at an earlier time. Once again we are truely sorry. MacGabhainns

Excellent value for money and centrally located. Most everything was provided that you could ask for. Can't comment much on the atmosphere though as there seemed to be only a handful of people staying there at the time - I had a 10 bed dorm all to myself for three days. Staff was very helpful with any questions I had. All in all, a satisfied customer.

Seemed to be a former office space converted into a hostel. Situated in Wimbledon, it's about 40-60 minute subway ride to London depending on the stop. Facilities are small but adequate (though there's only one toilet, atleast on the male side) and breakfast is included. Not a party hostel so you get good sleep. Excellent value for money, though rates are higher on the weekend. I can see this place getting better as they develop with time.

Nice place, a bit out of town but on the other hand it's in a peaceful area. Good facilities and outdoor areas (thumbs up for the rooftop terrace). You might feel a bit like being watched at times with cameras in most public areas. No complaints though.

It's good enough. Building is a bit rundown and they seem to be renovating the upper floors so the hallways are quite messy but it was clean where it counts, namely the room. There is a TV in the room but the channels weren't quite working properly. Staff was helpful though only the younger members spoke english.

Honestly, wasn't that nice when it was cold and raining. You are staying in a tent after all. Staff was friendly and helpful but the place seemed a bit unorganized. Tents have locks but then again, they're tents. There are some lockers in the main tent though. Water had dripped on the electrical extension cord in our tent during the night so I'd be careful with those.

An interesting place. Location has it's good side and bad side. On a hill in the middle of a national park so very difficult to get to. You'll be walking uphill in a forest, possibly with a full backpack and drenched with sweat like myself. So unless you have a similar need to bang your head against the wall, I strongly suggest calling the hostel for the pickup or atleast taking the bus. Staff is friendly and they serve good dinner. Was very quiet during the week but lots of guests on Friday.

Hi and thanks for your review and compliments. Yes the jewels our guests carry are safe in those lockers! But seriously, any bigger and they would take up too much space. They are certainly big enough for smaller packs, laptops, cameras etc.. which is most important. But my 2 year old son loves hiding in them so they are a good size!

Very good location, just don't keep the window open during the night or you won't get any sleep at all. Lots of drunken people shouting and singing outside and the music from the bars echoes all over the square. Facilities are good and clean. Breakfast is included and it's simple yet hearty. Rooms have lockers but they're not that hard to get into when locked. Doors are open 24/7 so anyone can just walk in (and one random drunkard did indeed stumble in, amazing feat considering the stairs).

Stayed for three nights and can't complain. You get what you pay for and the price is more than right. If you intend to stay active during the day and just need a place to sleep, BBH is for you. It is also quite close to the Palace Of Arts which was my main reason for staying here (went to a concert).
