Jaeger's Munich

Munich, Germany

Good location, terrible wifi, lockers didn't lock (even with our own padlock), old, metal, squeaky beds that woke everyone up whenever someone moved, 3 power points between 10 people. Upon arrival on a Thursday, there was fruit, old tissues and used make up wipes on the communal table in our 10 person dorm that remained there until we left on a Monday - pretty disgusting if you ask me. Pretty expensive bar considering a lot of budget backpackers stay there. Very average hostel.

Hostel Pearl

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Perfect location, right near a swimming area and the Old Town. Not really a "hostel", i.e no common room etc, but as a couple this didn't bother us! The room was huge and spacious, nice sea view, staff were fantastic with advice about Dubrovnik and things to do/not to do. Would definitely recommend!

Hostel Old Plovdiv

Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Possibly the best hostel we've stayed at - welcomed with our names on a blackboard and the Australian flag hanging up. Petia was an amazing staff member who was so friendly and so helpful with all the questions we had. In fact, all of the staff were so lovely. The manager had a coffee with us and we had a great chat with him. Awesome atmosphere in the rooms with the old, antique design. Delicious breakfast. Couldn't have faulted the hostel at all, would 100% recommend it!

Hostel Mostel

Sofia, Bulgaria

Lovely, helpful staff and a good location. Our room was in a different building, about a 5-7 minute walk from the main hostel. This was a bit annoying to be honest, made us feel unmotivated to get to breakfast by 10am and also made it hard to meet people. Other than that, was a nice, comfortable room.

Ona Paseo de Gracia Hostel

Barcelona, Spain

If you're looking to party or to even just have a few drinks, this hostel is not for you. Alcohol was not allowed to be consumed, even in the common area. One of the staff members kept coming into the common area one night, it was like he was checking up on us. This made us feel extremely uncomfortable. No privacy in the showers, especially with a partly see through glass pane separating two showers. Wouldn't recommend this hostel, especially in such a party place like Barcelona.

HelloBCN Hostel

Barcelona, Spain

Really good key system with the electronic wrist bands which were used for the lockers too. The lack of privacy in the showers was my main complaint. Other than that, it was a good stay and I would recommend it :)

Way Hostel

Madrid, Spain

Great staff, good lockers and good showers for the females, but for the males the showers were awful. Really good common area which had a great atmosphere because the World Cup was on. Great location too! I'd definitely recommend this hostel.

So Far So Homely Hostel

Lisbon, Portugal

Just stayed here for the one night - staff were super lovely and helpful. A really cute hostel, quiet and cosy. Bed light and for each bed is always a plus!

Algarve Surf Hostel Sagres

Sagres, Portugal

The only hostel we have stayed in that we didn't want to leave! It was like a family in one big house - Hayley and Mo are awesome hosts - super friendly, helpful and just awesome! Breakfast is delicious - home made treats every day. Would absolutely 100% recommend this hostel, especially if you're keen on surfing or if you just want a nice chilled out place to hang out :) 10/10 for sure :)

Algarve Surf Hostel

Lagos, Portugal

Awesome hostel with a great equipped kitchen and a beautiful pool and hammock to lay in. Dexter and Sophie do a great job running the hostel and the breakfast is delicious thanks to Sophie's baking! Only negative would be the 25 minute walk to town/the beach - a bit tough getting back from a night out but taxis aren't expensive anyway :)

Yes! Lisbon Hostel

Lisbon, Portugal

The best hostel we have stayed at. Awesome common area with cheap drinks & lots of people to talk to. Great rooms with curtains on the bunk beds and a power point & bed light for each bed - always a bonus. Clean bathroom facilities - I saw the cleaners in there at least 3 times a day cleaning the toilets & showers. Excellent key system with the electronic bracelets. Huge secure lockers under the beds. Would highly recommend doing the Sintra tour - one of the best days on our trip so far!

The White Tulip Hostel

Amsterdam, Netherlands

The location was perfect if you're wanting easy access to the nightlife. The 14 bed dorm was quite nice, however the bathroom facilities were terrible. The shower cubicles were so small, there was no where to put your clothes and toiletries bag without it getting wet (or you could hang it on the outside of the door) and the bathrooms were unisex so as a female, I had to try and get dressed with my wet clothes in the tiny cubicle. No common room was a big negative. Not great value for money.

Keystone House Kings Cross

London, England

Small room for an 8 person dorm. Had to walk down several flights of stairs just to have a shower. The staircase was so narrow, makes it hard when bringing luggage up or down. The most ridiculous thing was having to pay 2 pounds PER BAG when leaving your luggage in theirs storage room. I don't understand what we are paying for when we should be entitled to leave our luggage at a high-priced hostel. Pretty disappointing stay overall.

Euro Hostel Newcastle

Newcastle upon Tyne, England

Good location, clean room and bathroom. Not much atmosphere but overall we had a good stay.

Kick Ass Hostels

Edinburgh, Scotland

Let's just say, if you sign up for a pub crawl with Arlene, don't plan anything for the next day. Had such a great time at this hostel, the staff were awesome - so helpful and so much fun. Really cool bar with a great atmosphere. Rooms were fine, reading light and powerpoint for each bed was excellent. Location was perfect, you can see the castle from the hostel. Would definitely stay here again.

Euro Hostel Liverpool

Liverpool, England

Helpful staff, spacious dorm room and ensuite. Loved the power points and bed lights for each bed. Cool restaurant/bar downstairs with good priced food and drinks. Location was perfect.

Barmy Badger Backpackers

London, England

Awesome location, right next to the tube station. Staff were ever so friendly and helped with anything we asked. Great kitchen facilities where you can cook your own meals. Spacious dorm rooms with lockers and safes. Would definitely stay here again.

Sultan Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

Can't complain about our stay at this hostel. Location was awesome, the hot showers, towels, linen and wifi were all great! The bar downstairs had a great atmosphere, spent both our nights there drinking for a great price. Would recommend and stay here again.

V-GO's Hotel & Guesthouse

Fethiye, Turkey

A really cute and cosy guesthouse, room was spacious and ensuite was clean. About a 10-15 minute walk to town and the views of the bay are amazing. Good atmosphere on the roof top terrace whether you're socializing or just chilling out in the sun. Would definitely stay here again, staff were fantastic.

Second Home Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

The staff here were so welcoming and helped us with our bags as soon as we stepped into the building. Facilities were all good, location was fine if you don't mind a bit of walking. Would stay here again.
