Fine hostel. Nothing special but in a good enough location and cheap enough. The staff were nice. Breakfast wasn't great but I guess you can't complain if it was free! Rooms were basic but comfortable.

Not a bad hostel for what you pay. In a great location. The staff were nice. The beds were fine and if you have no problem sleeping in rooms with lots of other people then it's grand. Each bed has a little curtain at least so you have a little privacy. The facilities were good as well for the price. Cheep and cheerful! Don't go there for a quiet time though. Lots of young people.

Hyde Park Hostel

The hostel is what I expected. Cheap and in a very good location but not much else. The beds in fairness were comfortable but the whole place in general was a bit shabby. Could seriously do with more modern toilet and shower facilities. Didn't always have hot water in the shower either.

A grand hostel in a good location. The staff were really helpful and kept regularly in contact on the phone to help us check in as the pub is closed early in the day. The beds were comfy but there is only one shower and toilet between the 4 rooms in the hostel. This was fine for us as we were the only ones there at the time but may be a problem if all 4 rooms are occupied.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Just to correct you on your point re toilets/showers, but two of our rooms are en suite, so the main bathroom only serves two rooms. Next time you're in Dingle we will give you the grand tour of the place and upgrade you to an en suite room. Thanks for your concern and hope to see you soon. Tommy

The hostel is in a great location, it is clean and the facilities are fine. However the receptionist was a bit unfriendly. Of course, this wouldn't let me discourage you from staying here. Really great hostel overall!

Really nice hostel. The receptionist who greeted us was absolutely lovely. Very welcoming and helpful. The beds were really comfortable and the toilet and shower facilities were fine. Really nice, old building in the middle of the town, walking distance from all the important places to go.

A really good hotel that's perfectly catered for young people as it's right beside the beach and the strip. I wouldn't recommend it for families or older groups though.

Valley House Holiday Hostel

Nice hostel but kinda hard to get to. Not near anything else whatsoever on the island walking distance, but it's the only hostel so better make sure you can drive. The owner didn't want people drinking in the kitchen because of the attached pub. He let us away with it because it was New Years but I think he's more strict otherwise. Be discreet with your drinks.

Hostel Zeus

Athens, Greece
91%

Really great hostel. The staff (especially George) are really nice. Beds, showers and toilets are all very good. Good location, 5 minutes walk from main shops and restaurants. The hostel organises both a free walking tour and a day trip on the owners' 44 foot yacht. The walking tour is the best I've been on which does all of Athens in 5 hours and the yacht trip is so much fun. Well worth the €49!!!! I also love the name of a Greek god on each bedroom door!

Residence Kalemegdan Park

Belgrade, Serbia
91%

Perfect location in the middle of Belgrade and really cheap. It feels like an underground hotel like a cool bomb-shelter if that can somehow sound positive. The toilets and showers are really nice, private and well done. The beds are by far the comfiest I stayed in during my whole Interrailing trip. I wish I could've taken home the mattress. Only negative is there didn't seem to be any personal lockers but you could give your valuables into reception.

Great location, only 2 minute walk from the main touristy street. Beds were fine and rooms equipped with lockers. Showers were nice and warm. A 24 hour supermarket is right downstairs which is pretty handy.

Hostel Nice Place

Podgorica, Montenegro

Not a bad hostel to stay in. Gives a very bad first impression from the outside but it's better on the inside. My bed wasn't particularly comfortable as it was made up of 3 couch cushions, but some other beds had proper mattresses. There's only the one toilet and shower in the one room between 15 people which isn't quite enough but manageable once everyone isn't there at the same time. Location is great, right beside the main town. If you're not fussy overall, the hostel is absolutely fine!

Hostel Dubrovnik Sunset

Dubrovnik, Croatia
66%

A nice hostel which is expensive enough but for Dubrovnik it's not actually that bad. The main problem is that it's a 15-20 minute drive outside the old town. The hostel has regular shuttle buses which somewhat make up for it and it's only about €2 each way but you still have to think about when the next shuttle. Normally they're every hour. The hostel itself is very nice. Nice beds and showers but no lockers. Quite near a supermarket and the ocean for a swim.

Hosteller

Bled, Slovenia

Probably one of the best hostels I've stayed in. A hostel that seems to have once been a normal detached house. Beds are lovely and comfortable. Bathroom facilities are fine. It's about a 10 minute walk to the town and the lake but very pleasant, don't let it put you off! The thing that made it was the staff which was this one guy called Thomas. He was absolutely great & knew everything about everything. So nice, he even went out for a drink with us in the evening. He even has a pet dog!

Marco Polo Top Hostel

Budapest, Hungary
83%

Nice hostel with good facilities. Showers and bathroom were ensuite between 12 people in our room and it was fine. I didn't like having to give the key to reception every time I left though as someone else could potentially just take it. Location was good. We could always walk home from all the sites and nights out.

Porzellaneum

More like a hotel than a hostel. Very nice beds and really nice showers (open showers but divided by sex). Everything is lovely and clean. Not a bad location. Could walk to the city centre in about 15 minutes or get the metro nearby or rent the city bikes for only a euro for your whole trip if you're smart and know how to use them.

Travellers Hostel Ujezd

Prague, Czech Republic
86%

Really good value for money. It says 70 people in a room but there are curtain divisions if that makes it seem a little less daunting. Beds aren't the comfiest but the showers are lovely (despite being open showers, different ones for each sex though!) Staff are really nice and helpful. Location is not bad. Beside a really nice park with a great view, otherwise the main city is about a 10 minute walk.

The hostel is fine if you're not picky. The beds are comfy. Showers didn't have any hot water though. But the hostel is in a great location in between the old town and the Jewish quarter.
