Fantastic hostel. Even though it belongs to a large hostel group, this one is good as it's not too big, and the staff are great. Irina, joe joe, brian etc, all great. Thanks for an awesome time in granada!

Do not stay here. The actual staff are terrible. I was kicked out because I 'Did not go out until 1am, Did not clean everyone's dishes, and because i slept naked'. I was told these three reasons while under the sheets 11am this morning.

Such an amazing place to stay. Not your typical hostel, more like a little street community. Jay Z and Lorena were/are fantastic. Friendly and super helpful, they really try to make everyone’s stay a good one. It’s great to find somewhere where the people running the place enjoy what they’re doing. Lorena’s sweet heart and Jay’s silly conversations will ensure you stay longer. Tiger. https://www.facebook.com/CapturedAbroad

A tiger friendly hostel. Enjoyed watching colourful wild cats exit my temporary jungle after urinating to mark their territory. Extremlely sociable hostel, made lots of friends, some great. You’ll end up staying longer. One of my best hostel stays in 19 months of travelling. Will not be forgotten. Try not to leave after ~1am as you’ll get locked out, but my tent sure came in handy.

Abbey Court

Good value hostel, great location. Quite a big hostel/hotel, but not completely characterless. Bit of a maze inside which makes it interesting. Big eating and kitchen area. Needs some better unwarped pans though. Beds are too noisy though, and the locks under the bunks are terrible, you can still fit your hand in, plus they can be very loud sliding them out. But if you get it for 10euro's, this is def worth it. Hammock room was great though only one hammock. Surprisingly I was the only one using

Like my facebook page for cool travel images https://www.facebook.com/CapturedAbroad . This hostel is a great place to chill for a while. I was finally able to catch up on lost sleep. Don't do the day trip up here, stay for a few days to relax and enjoy a sunset or two. Only issue is that it's a 30-40minute walk to town to get food. They often do dinner at the hostel which is great, but try confirm with the staff if it'll happen so you know if you need to make your own plans.

To see the world through the eye of the tiger, Like my page: https://www.facebook.com/CapturedAbroad Oh wait this is a review. Yep believe the hype, one of the best hostels i've stayed at in 17 months of travel. Staff are genuine, relaxed and super friendly. Hostel has all you need and more, though lockers don't work well (use thick padlock). If i was super picky, I would say not all bunks allow tall people to hang feet off edge. But it's ok as I sleep curled up, like a tiger. roar

Inverness Tourist Hostel

Has most things right, though 10am checkout is too early and every morning with no minute to spare they were kicking people bang on 10. Staff got very angry at a group taking too long and was a complete over-reaction. Chill the f-out. "I'm gonna have to get the manager and you dont want that". Felt like schoolroom. Showers are not great and both were damaged on top floor. Great kitchen and common room. Lockers are TERRIBLE You can still open them with most locks on. Relax on kitchen closing time

A tiger friendly hostel, great location, ticks most boxes. A little strange compared to normal hostels as there are so many long termers eg. aussies italians and spanish. most very friendly though. 10am checkout is too early, and the room cleaning starts bang on 10am each morning so it's a legit 10am checkout. Bit hard to find room in fridges, but otherwise facilities are pretty good. Free earplugs at reception was a nice touch. I extended three times, possibly alcohol related. roar

You sorta get what you pay for. No lockers though which is poor form. Staff are good though, particuarly the Italian guy Andre(?) He was so helpful and always cheery despite continued questions. I was up on 4th floor which was a pain as no elevator. Kitchen is close to useless, bascially just a microwave and toaster. Simple portable hot plates would be a good touch

This houseboat has been done amazingly well. It's a great chilled out place that doesn't really feel like a boat. For example, there are plenty of toilets and showers, bigger and better quality than most hostels! It is a little bit out of the city, so not the most convenient place, but the novelty/boat factor makes up for it

Hostel Orange

Was my third hostel I stayed at in Prague, and my favourite. Similar to a hotel but a small one, so a nice relaxed atmosphere though quiet during week. Good tv room, small kitchen(s) with only spoons as cutlery (well maybe two forks also, bonus), and all staff I had were great, very willing to help you with questions. Natasha will melt your ❤, then break it when you notice the ring on her finger. Oh and great showers. Even Jesus (Jamie) showered. Paul http://www.facebook.com/CapturedAbroad

Favourite hostel to date. Great newly done kitchen, cool common area, nice atmosphere where you feel like you're a bunch of strangers who all decided to rent a big house for the weekend. Only reason I didn't leave my first 100% review was because the didgerdoo was rudely snatched from me at 10:30am by one of the staff who had woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Then another staff immediately had a go at me. left a bad feeling on waking and departure. Caroline the owner is fantastic though.

SG 1 Hostel

Prague, Czech Republic

Great value accom, very good bunk beds. Quiet place though as hard to socialise as kitchen and recepetion area are separated, so people mostly hang in kitchen which doesn't have much room, and is uncomfortably bright. Didn't have an english speaker for most of my stay, basically the cleaning lady was working. The the owner was there for check in, probably best check in i've had. Main problem is that the doors get locked over night, from the inside and the outside, so your'e trapped in a fire...!

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Great bar reception area with pool table and 1 euro beers (large during happy hour). Staff pretty good with advice. Main issue is the large groups that get booked in there, so don't be surprised if 30 school kids flood the place. Kitchen should open much earlier, seems like they want to force you to have the breakfast they sell. Like my travel photo page guys: http://www.facebook.com/CapturedAbroad :)

Great hostel, loved the reception which was also a good bar with cheap drinks. Bunks were good though a couple squeaked (maybe need tightening?). Staff were very helpful, though I couldn't help feel sometimes that they were judging you sometimes. Maybe this was because I came home once and danced half naked in reception. Or perhaps it's a German thing. The Aussie guy was the most friendly staff I've met in a hostel. Much more relaxed and helpful. The kitchen not opening til 10am is poor form.

No social vibe. More a large hotel, not hostel. Staff are ok. I arrived at 7am from train, and was told to wait till 3 or something before check in which was inconsiderate. Then with a change in staff, one of them said i could have checked in ages ago! Bit of a dodgey area, so take care, but close to city.

Cheapest in town, but strange. You need to use your keycard just to enter the bathrooms and common rooms etc. And they leave everyday at 3:30pm.

Thank you for your feedback. In the winter season, we do not have enough guests to stay open around the clock, which is why we have efficient routines for entering after reception has closed.

Great hostel, though more like a tiny hotel, as the reception is very far from common area so not really a good place for socialising. Everyone in the common area downstairs tends to be quiet, it needs some character or some life somehow. And stop charging for bed sheets, get with the times.

Him not being harmless, a drunken hypocrit known for his anger. He cancels peoples bookings so that they can't leave the negative review too. the esti is fine

Manager disliked me so i was happy to leave when i did. Another seemed jelous and then resentful towards me that i picked up 5 of the 6 nights i stayed there (very unlike me). Don't go Red Emperor, Craig the violent owner has attacked people and canceled their booking so they can't leave a review

Excellent staff, allowing me to passout on the floor when I arrived home almost every night of the week there, not wanting to go to bed yet. And then finally carrying me up when it was time. Occasionally stealing a cheeky hug. One time i even arrived in middle of the night -20d without a jacket, and reception gave me a jumper from lost property . Only downside is that the the amerian owner Nathan appears too controlling of his staff. The staff should be given more respect and freedoms from him.

Retox Party Hostel

The loosest party hostel i've been to. So in all fairness, they're doing it well. Sort of. It's hugely focused on the staff. Which for most part is enjoyable if you're happy to be a spectator. They don't seem to make much effort to involve their guests (unless for $ or girls). They have their own close circle which will occasionally involve guests, but when they have so many staff, well they don't really need to bother to involve other guests. It's about them, not you. Amazing stories though.

Loved the common room in the way it was central to reception, the kitchen, and a small deck for a few people to smoke on or watch the street below. Staff were mostly kind, little harder to break the Bulgarians here than in other places like art hostel sofia, but most seemed pretty cool. Perhaps not the biggest fan of the metal the staff would occasionally play. Would be good if there were some speakers in the common room that you could play music from, rather than laptops etc.
