City Hostel Seattle

Seattle, USA

Exceptionally good hostel. Professionally managed, excellent and helpful staff, very good security check on those entering the hostel and roomy lockers in the key-card accessed rooms. Bathrooms and showers spotless. Good breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit, cereals, toast, coffee, and tea. Exceptionally clean dishes and utensils sanitized in dishwasher operated by staff after guests rinse items. Streaming WiFi was excellent at back of building, 2nd floor even during times of high usage.


Toc Hostel Sevilla

Seville, Spain
100%

Extraordinary! TOC is a great destination in the midst of historical Seville. You'll be so happy with your stay that you'll want to send me a thank you note for recommending them. Staying here is like sharing a hotel room vs a hostel dorm. Only area for improvement would be the lighting in the breakfast area. The atmosphere there doesn't match up with the extraordinary atmosphere of the rest of TOC.

The Hat Madrid

Madrid, Spain
100%

Excellent ... I've stayed in hostels all around the world. Top Hat rates right there at the top of the list for quality, cleanliness, security, atmosphere and everything. The breakfast was different from many hostels, but the tomato based sauce to put on the toast was good. It seems that a number of Spanish hostels consider the toast a sufficient desayuno (breakfast). Don't miss the rooftop patio and bar where drinks are reasonably priced and there is often music.

Hostel Baccarat

Location is convenient to rail station, but directions to hostel are poor. The hostel is located at the far end of the boulevard from the old city and large public plaza. The staff was helpful at the desk. The 3 euro wine/pasta dinner was a plate of spaghetti with cheap wine.

Sandra's Backpackers Hostel

Hard to find because name on front of building appears to be a food stand. Rooms are up the narrow rusting stairs above the restaurant. Park on the street where the sign limits the length of parking, but the owner says "never mind. we have only one policeman and he serves two towns."

Five Elements Hostel Frankfurt

Located in the Red Light and drug sale district, but only 3-5 min walk from the main train station - very convenient. The strip joint people will try to get your attention as you walk past, but if you ignore them you're just fine - just keep walking, don't look at them or answer their questions/invitations. The drug people are involved with their own business and give you no attention. The hostel is well secured and entry must be approved by the person at the counter, so no outsiders on the insi

Alaska Backpackers Inn

Anchorage, USA

Ya know this place is just nasty. There's equipment stored behind the front desk of the "annex." There's graffiti all over the walls in an effort to be creative and allow guests to personalize the wall space, but it's not really working for this hostel. All the amateur artwork just makes the place look bad. Hosts who really care about guests do all they can to make the place look good. Alaska Backpackers seems to have the opposite attitude.

Great hostel and compliments to Oliver, the staff guy on duty when I checked in ... very helpful and enthusiastic about the hostel and guests. Convenient location for walking through the old city, easy Metro stop, only a few blocks from the river. Be sure to use their coupon for Bali Restaurant - very good place to dine.

EastSeven Berlin Hostel

The U-bahn ride makes this a convenient place to stay. The directions are detailed but a little unclear about which way to go when you leave the U-bahn. The directions just give you the street name, but you cannot see it from the u-bahn exit. You'll have to ask someone which way to the street.

This basic hostel is on the "other side of the tracks" from the city of Pisa, but it is a convenient walk from the train station. I went there to stay one night and extended for an additional 3 nights, making day trips to Lucca and Florence. Price is right. Beds are single and not bunk.

Cleanest and most helpful hostel I've found so far. Alessandro on the desk and his wife Julia are knowledgable and so helpful it's as though you are guests in their own home. And Elizabeth works with them in aking sure everything is Perfect Be sure to sign up for the 3 Euro breakfast -- it will make you happy And if you're visiting the trail and other towns be sure to buy at the train station the 10 Euro day pass that covers the train, the hiking trail, and the little bus from the station .

This basic hostel is close to the beach, but pretty average otherwise. Insufficient parking.
