Great hostel! very central location, it's within the university area feels very safe. Our twin-shared room was very spacious, very clean bathroom, toilet and kitchen. The bed was very comfy too! The reception is 24 hours and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. We loved it! Highly recommend it to anybody who's visiting Helsinki!

Castanea Old Town Hostel, Stockholm, Sweden

22nd Aug 2013

Overall it was a great hostel in old town. However, the reception only opens during day hours and closes at 6pm, there's nobody to ask questions (if you have any) after hours until the next morning. Our twin-shared room was very small compares to many other hostels we've been to. The wifi didn't work in our room, we had to go to the common area to get the signal working.

An awesome hostel! Staff were friendly and helpful, the Swiss meatball Wednesday was so much fun! Very clean facilities. No shoes allowed inside the hostel room/kitchen area. The beds were very comfy. Spacious rooms and kitchen. Free sauna in the evening, but different session for males and females. Lots of opportunities to chat with fellow travelers. Really liked it!

A very good hostel on average, great kitchen and lovely breakfast, showers have jets (but not all of them worked though), spacious rooms. Staff are friendly and always ready to answer your questions. About 15 mins walk to the old town or night life area.

very Central location, love the vault-like doors of the place feels very safe. staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Nadia emailed us in advance to confirm our arrival time, and gave us very good advice what to do and where to eat around town. very clean rooms too! love the fact that we can freely make a tea or coffee in their kitchen whenever, a very warm gesture.

Kelvin Hotel West End, Glasgow, Scotland

13th Jun 2013

Charlie's a lovely host, very friendly, patient and helpful. Breakfast was lovely, freshly cooked by Charlie himself. The only problem I found was the size of the room, was a bit too small for 2 person plus 2 hand luggage. Otherwise the place was very clean and all the staff there were lovely. The location of this B&B is at the West end of the city, but it's very easy to get to, only costs 1.40 pounds for subway one way or 1.90 pounds for bus one way. gets to town in 10 mins.

Smart City Hostel by Safestay, Edinburgh, Scotland

Very central location, great for exploring the city on foot! We stayed in the newly refurbished wing so the room had a strong smell of paint. WiFi only available in the bar area. Food from their kitchen wasn't the greatest, the chicken I ordered was very small and over fried, but you can easily get food elsewhere as it's so central. Or cook using their clean and spacious guest kitchen. The hostel is definitely a good value for its location, facility and service.

this hostel is located in the heart of old town, it was soooo noisy and smooky too as people smoke outside the bars downstairs when theh drink at night. no kitchen no computer. wifi is available. people make your bed and change your towel everyday. the owner speaks ok english. rooms are clean but can be quite small.overall it's an above average hostel if you don't mind the noise.
