I'm happy here. Arrived a day late but contacted hostel and didn't affect my booking. Beds are comfortable. Breakfast is ok, rooftop terrace is nice. Cambio snack place and supermarket nearby. Staff are cool aswell. Eugene is a bit of a classic rock fan so expect a bit of the Stones and ACDC. And is a River fan. Booked extra days after arriving and got a 10% discount.
Found the rooms needed a refurbishment. Was moved rooms at little notice aswell. Otherwise was a really good social place to stay. Lots of freebies such as free Spanish class on Monday and tango class on Saturday. Barbeque evening on the terrace was also good for social and food experience. Staff were useful for information about going to football matches aswell. Lots of places to eat and drink nearby aswell. Is a couple of blocks from the metro aswell.
the staff were really helpful, particularly girl from Ankara, who was very knowledgeable about the area, Alex, who helped when i had a random allergic reaction, and the Vancouver chap i saw a few times serving breakfast. Loved location, was in the middle of a street with bars and restaurants. also a food market nearby. breakfast was good. bit of a journey to get to the top for common room area, but nice once you got there!
Really good socially here. Lots of locals frequented the bar in evenings so was great to meet some locals and travellers aswell. Breakfast was really good and location great. Bordered on being a party hostel and as a result didn't feel quite at home here. Overall glad I stayed here.
Location was a bit out. Found the staff great and the dog was amusing chasing after it's own tail. Breakfast is coffee or tea with a prepared roll or apple pie so basic but enjoyable. Could have stayed here longer, felt really cosy. Wasn't brilliant socially but think that was because it was the off season; it didn't affect my experience. Can get pizza delivery from nearby place. Supermarket and ATM are about 10 mins away. Had taxi organised to take me to airport aswell on 2nd visit. Recommended
Only stayed here 1 night due to time constraints but could happily have stayed here longer. They have sky sports in the common room. The owner seemed to love football, which helped as I do. The breakfast is included. Wifi works all around the hostel. Loved the balcony area. A touch tricky to find but managed to get the spray painted signs nearby. If I'm in ohrid again I will stay here
The owner was really helpful and more than willing to suggest places to go and things to see but also appeared to be a touch confrontational if you didn't agree with certain things. Breakfast included. Is about a 15 min walk from the centre but plenty of food options ATMs an supermarkets are nearby. No lockers In rooms but didn't feel like belongings were in danger. Balcony area was good for socialising. Overall enjoyable
family run hostel. free pick up from bus station didnt happen, got 2 free samples of rakia on 1st day. wasnt complaining. wifi was a bit hit and miss, but the owner was LOVELY! breakfast is a must. the lady doesn"t want you to stop eating. is a little journey to the old town, but supermarkets and atms are nearby. watched the Croatia match whilst trying local food snacks made by the owner. the sons were friendly aswell.
the owner was like a mother to all of us. the resident cat was amusing. home made breakfast part of the price and was different every day. had a day long tour which was enjoyable but tiring. saw beautiful waterfalls, a castle, and had Bosnian coffee. and bosnian techno was something else. rooms were comfortable. lockers were outside the room, and were small, so only passports and other exxentials could be stored inside. recommended overall
family run, was very quiet when i was there, but didn't mind that one bit. Jasmin and family were lovely hosts. really welcoming. Had an excellent war tour as well which would throughly recommend. The owner is a war veteran, which gave the tour extra significance. location is very safe as its near some government buildings but you have to go up a hill to get there. also location isn't completely in centre but close to old town and a brewery!!
enjoyed my time here. was very relaxed. the owner in particular was very helpful and eager to assist as and when required. was free tea and turkish coffee, which staff soemtimes offered to make. wifi good, had minor blip with check out. staff member was a bit abrupt apparently because her shift finished shortly. great location too, just be prepared to walk up a few steps, as lift is small and has seen better days
really nice cosy place. staff were really helpful. particularly the Serbian chap (can't remember his name). The night i arrived the owner had just got married and was giving me plenty of Palinka to drink. So timing of my visit was good too! Free breakfast, another worker helped me to search to watch Premier League football extensively. cannot complain about anything, apart from the weather being rubbish (though that has nothing to do with the hostel itself)
As party hostels go this wasn't bad. Staff were friendly and felt like they were part of the travelling crowd. Went on a boat trip which was good particularly as you got a bottle of champagne as part of the deal.
Staff were really helpful. Even helped me get a red wine stain out of a tshirt. Mainly locals were at reception and knew authentic places to go out. Only gripe was balcony was used by staff for a smoke and occasionally the room smelt a bit afterwards. Overall recommend it!
Decent place free breakfast wifi only worked in reception. Staff were friendly. Couldn't use computer to get online which was strange. Having an xbox was something different to have in hostel. Breakfast was included
Ok place was gd to be near the station but immediate area is a little grimy. Had really good pasta wine and popcorn for €3 at the hostel and was a good way to meet people.
Really nice. Danish owner was friendly and helpful. Shower pipe was leaking a bit but issue was resolved without fuss. The resident dog was cool too. Great price aswell
plusses: walking tour guide was really good and helpful for any queries you have about where to go and what to do; lots of free stuff included in price like internet and breakfast. wifi worked in rooms and you get decent breakfast as part of the price. liked the social element to the hostel, which was good for me as a solo traveller negatives: place was a bit messy at times
Enjoyed my brief stay here. Receptionist I think was from Australia and was suited to his role
stayed here on 16th aug; was ok and would stay again
did the job; took me a few minutes to check in, and a couple of doorbell rings. staff member once she was there was nice and friendly. room was ok; 8 bed dorm, but you need to provide your own locker key. like the terrace area part. tea coffee and breakfast as part of the price always goes down well
Enjoyed time here overall though common room area felt more like a laptop party. Staff were friendly enough
Staff were really good but do not recommend this hostel for lone travellers as its basically a hotel that happens to have bunk bed dorm rooms
too big and too much like a hotel for my liking. staff were helpful though. found the room key continually didnt work, which was a bit annoying.
Been here before. Enjoyed it then and still do. Owner managed to fit me into a room for a further 2 nights in spite of the dorms being busy
Too pricey for my liking. Chap at reception was from near Barcelona and was really friendly and helpful which made up for the price a bit! Room was small but did the job. Place lacked character and were steep steps as you arrived. Is close to leidseplein which isn't bad
Not a bad place, didn't like the dorm room I stayed in. Staff were generally friendly and helpful. Got a free green tea as I checked in. Was a nice touch.
rooms were in a different building to the reception and bar area. was ok for a place and was a good selection of beers at the bar. free map provided on arrival which is always welcome and breakfast was included in the price. also like how the beds have a curtain, adding a little privacy to a 10 bed dorm.
Not having laundry on site was a bit annoying. Bit expensive for a hostel but got 1st beer for €1 on arrival, bathrooms were impeccably clean and got a discounted ticket for the Mercedes Benz museum, which was good.
staff were quite rude. not sure if this was because i was in Munich, where from my experience customer service isnt great! was a table tennis table or 2, which was a nice touch. was cheap to stay but you had to pay for pretty much everything. most evenings they had meals and food available for €5 maximum. liked the campfire in evenings as a good way to meet people. glad i experienced staying here but wouldnt stay here in the future
Was allocated a room and told to check for a free bed. There wasn't one. Had to wait a few minutes before 1 bed was made available and new sheets were provided. Got a free beer as a goodwill gesture from the staff, which was a nice touch. Hostel is a bit far away from the touristy areas but was overall an ok place to stay
had an en suite 4 bed dorm, with a tv. both were a luxury, given i was there for 1 night and there was no one else in the room until late in the evening. location wasnt great, had about a 30 min walk before i could reach the centre of Salzburg
Couldn't really fault it to be honest. Was close to westbahnhof do amenities were near. Free internet, things werent overpriced. Think I would have liked it more had I stayed longer hence the 'good' rating.
Got free drink on arrival. Hostel was 5 min walk away in separate building. Clean and tidy. Could use Internet but in a separate building. Overall good
Nice place. Felt at home. Recommended
Arguably the best hostel I have stayed in thus far. Cannot fault it. The workers there are part of the social clan and met some really nice people. Apparently they charge for linen but as I was there for 4 nights I didn't pay for it. Didn't want to leave.
Fantastic place. Will stay again if in Berlin. (Was here from 11-17 June 2013; this was an extension of that stay)
Absolutely love this place. The owner was really helpful. Chickens about. Close to the tram stop which runs 24 hours even though its a bit out of town. Loved the relaxed environment and would definitely come here again.
Walked in by pressing the doorbell and was greeted by a receptionist who 'asked me not to press the doorbell so much as she didn't like the sound of it'. A welcome would have been nice but wasn't to be. Found her rude and felt she didn't really want to be there. Room was reasonable size but had too many beds and reminded me of capsule hotels found in Japan. And 2 people the same evening had things stolen from their lockers. And the police were called. Bar at sister hostel was nice
enjoyed my stay earlier this month. was a pub crawl which was advertised but didnt happen due to a lack of people to do the crawl. that aside, the staff were all friendly, and all seemed to be having as good a time as the visitors. was noisy with the clubs literally outside the front door. so beware! breakfast was good, facilities were good.free tea and coffee is always a plus, as well as free internet.
found hostel to be a bit sterile and lacking in character. though was really clean and cheap to stay compared to other hostels in the area. reception were reasonably friendly. Found Cuban guy at hostel bar to be knowledgeable for bars to go to and such like. also the lockers were €2 for 24 hours, which is a bit steep for me. couldnt bring in own food, which meant having to buy food from the hostel cafe or eating elsewhere. close to main station just make sure you come out of the right exit.
staff were really helpful; was made to feel at home, even though i was moved rooms after my first night there. i arrived late, but the owner stayed up for any late arrivals. breakfast was bread and jam (basic) but you could get other things and eat in the kitchen aswell. lots of steps to get up in order to get to the hostel. found directions to hostel weren't great, look out for mr fit and adeka supermarket, hostel is just past there on 4th floor!
enjoyed stay in 4 bed mixed dorm. staff were helpful, but found some of the tours the hostel were advertising to be expensive. room was clean, though we had to be out of our room by 10am until 3pm for cleaning every day during our stay. went on pub crawl, which was basically free drinks at the bar then entry to 2 clubs. you have to pay for the metro to get there, which isnt part of the cost.

reception staff were really helpful; small hostel but common room gave a more homely feel, which i liked. also was good it didnt have a bar. breakfast included in the dorms cost. would happily stay at itaca again.
Hostel was good. Good location. For the price, a clean bed, though it wasnt prepared when i arrived, and a random dude was sleeping on my bed. Staff were friendly. €12 for a locker isnt too bad, esp as €10 is deposit. bar was relatively cheap aswell, just under €4 for a pint.
