Loved this hostel. The breakfasts were amazing. Everyone was really friendly and inclusive. The cute hostel dinners were great value for money and a nice way to meet people. The staff welcome you in to the hostel like a family - brilliant place.

Castle Rock Hostel

Amazing view of the Castle from our room. Bathrooms were always clean, lockers were good. Staff at reception were lovely. Hostel seemed to be mainly long term guest who were rude and unwelcoming. Left us feeling very uncomfortable and consequently we generally avoided common areas.

Lovely hostel with kind staff. Very close to the station and a short walk to all the attractions. Some of the lockers under the beds were broken. Beds were very comfortable though. Bathrooms were on the small side and not well ventilated. We would stay there again though.

If you are looking for a place to sleep with a roof over your head then this is the place to go. It has a nice enough common area with couches and a pool table. But the internet prices were wayyyyyy too expensive and didn't reach the rooms. Also the showers were poorly ventilated and when I arrived two of the showers on my floor smelt of urine.

This hostel has an awesome vibe. The staff are really fun and kind and the common areas are large and comfortable so that you can meet new people easily.

I had heaps of fun at this hostel. The staff were for the most part very friendly. The nightly activities made it really easy to meet people and have a bit of fun. The rooms were a bit squishy but quite clean. The kitchen is also a bit small. Heaps of movies so you can chill out and relax if you want to. Overall a very good hostel. I would recommend it to others.

More like a share house atmosphere than a hostel. The staff are very friendly. Faciliites are very clean. Location isn´t bad. The only problem was that staff were not around very often so when I needed to find out things about the city, there was no one to ask. Otherwise it was a fantastic hostel. I would recommend this hostel to others.

The staff were the rudest and slowest I have ever met. The facilities were not great. The shower in my room was dirty and the shower door was broken. The Laundry facilities were expensive and only accepted 1 euro coins, the change machine didn´t work and the hostel staff were too busy doing other things to spare the 20 seconds it would take to give me change for the dryer.

Seven Hostel

This hostel was more like a hotel than a hostel. There were very few people staying there. The environment was nice though. Only real problem is that it takes about half an hour to walk into Sorrento and there are no real beaches in the area.

The hostel itself is nice. Spacious and clean rooms with comfortable beds. The bar had a nice environment but the drinks were too expensive for a backpackers budget. Additionally, on some nights I couldn't sit in the bar without being pressured into expensive pub crawls. Overall the staff were quite nice, but once again I felt very pressured into doing tours that are just too far out of my budget. It was a bit frustrating and as a consequence I generally tried to avoid reception at all costs.


Archi Rossi Hostel

Florence, Italy

The hostel is well located near the train station and isn't a long walk from the major attractions. The free walking tours were fantastic. Additionally, the breakfast buffet was the best I have ever seen. The free pizza dinner also meant that I saved a lot of money on food during my stay. I did however have huge problems with the wifi which wouldn't work half the time. And whenever I asked staff for help regarding the city or my room or the hostel most of them were very rude and dismissive.

The Silk Road

Overall a nice hostel. The walking directions provided were a nightmare to follow as some of the streets listed didn't seem to me known by any locals. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They even took the time one night to show me a bit of the city. The rooms are very spacious and clean. Beds very comfortable. The breakfast had a bigger variety than expected. Overall a very nice hostel, just a bit hard to find.

Average hostel near the heart of Strasbourg. The service was very average but they were willing to answer my questions when I had some. Perhaps more focused on large groups (like school groups and but tours)I felt that they did not cater very well to individuals.

A nice hostel with very friendly staff. Very big and modern. Reasonably clean. There were lots of mosquitos in the dorm rooms though. Location is a bit out of town but its easy to find from the Metro.

A well located hostel with clean rooms and facilities. However you are required to be back at the hostel between 11am and 10pm renew the key for the room which was sometimes very inconvenient.
