Pocitos Hostel

Montevideo, Uruguay

Great place to stay! Nice kitchen and common area and comfortable beds. It was a little outside of the main area in Ciudad Vieja so you'd need to take a bus but I think that's also what made it safer. There wasn't a whole lot in the area in terms of bars when we went looking around 1:00 AM except for this place 21. There is a supermarket 1 street away which is really convenient. Cold shower was a downer but I understand there is a trick to getting the warm water so be sure to ask about it.

Terrazas Estoril

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Had a great stay here and would go back. Rooms were comfortable and plenty of space to hang out. Terrace was really nice but it was mostly cold out so was unusable most of the time. The location is unbeatable. The hostel is the same as the one on the separate floors below it so you can go down to the main floor to hang out as well as them come up. 1 weird thing staying on the 6th floor was that you had to be let in (ok) and out (?). No buzzer system so you were literally locked in.

Home Youth Hostel

Valencia, Spain

great place overall! great staff, good common area with a nice kitchen and dining area, plenty of seating/couches for talking with others. no bunks in any rooms (I dont think) and plenty of space. nice lockers, great location, good community vibe. only slightly tricky to find from the train station but overall wasn't too hard if you follow the "keep fountain on right of you and pass citibank" instructions. I would definitely stay here again without a doubt. Fun pub crawl too!

Ostello Bello

Milan, Italy

Other than being slightly difficult to find, the place was great. I stayed in an 8 person room and didn't really feel crammed. The downstairs bar and basement bar were great places to hang out. Even Milano locals come in to hang out they like the bar so much. Honestly I thought it was more busy there than the other "bars" I went to. Lots of instruments downstairs for spontaneous jam sessions if you play at all. A criticism I might make is that one bathroom ensuite for 8 is sometimes rough.

My Friends

Florence, Italy

You won't find a more accommodating hostel. It actually felt a bit more like a B&B. Both of the owners are great and super helpful and accommodating. Very close to the train station, a laundry facility, and basically the entire town square so you can't beat it on many fronts. If I go back to Florence, I'd stay here 100% for sure. Coming out groggy eyed on New Years Day to a cup of coffee and breakfast was a treat. Don't hesitate, stay here!! It's very clean too!

The Yellow

Rome, Italy

very close to train station and easy to find. I found the bar to be pretty active. The six person dorm was roomy enough but the showers were pretty small. Overall an OK stay

The Garden Backpacker

Seville, Spain

I had a bad experience in Malaga and actually loved it here so much, I came back and stayed again instead of staying in Malaga. Great place!!


From the moment I checked in, I didn't feel quite comfortable here. They used the paper business card method for your "key" to the place and there are no locks on the doors inside. The shower was pretty cramped and the shower mat was soaked. There were ants in the common area on the floor and the Internet dropped a lot. This is definitely not a 10 minute walk to the city center as advertised. I walked it twice and it was over 30 minutes. I paid for 4 nights and left after my first night.

360 Hostel Centro

Madrid, Spain

Great location, however, it was pretty noisy at night outside the rooms and you had to keep the window doors open because there was no AC in the room. Plenty of computers to use. The one thing I didn't like was how it was broken down into two floors which kinda separated the people in the hostel. However, you can still meet down in the main floor for the pub crawls, etc, which turned out to be worthwhile. Showers were a little cramped but did the trick.

Granada Inn Backpackers

Granada, Spain

Aside from the fact you had bunk beds in the room and were sharing the room with others, it was pretty much like staying in a hotel. I've been in actual hotels that didn't compare to this place. Some of the loft style beds were pretty big. The bathroom was very up to date and clean as well. Can't recommend this place enough. Absolutely would look to stay here again if I get back to Granada

The Garden Backpacker

Seville, Spain

Nice rooms, decent beds, excellent common area (bar) for meeting others. 4 computers for Internet was a bonus to make plans for the next place. Bathroom situation was good as you could actually get an entire bathroom/shower to yourself if it was available. Would definitely stay here again if I am back in Sevilla

Hostel One Paralelo

Barcelona, Spain

Best hostel I ever stayed at. I started off my travels in Spain here and it set the tone for the rest of the trip. Excellent staff, clean rooms, great social area. They cook you dinner every night which was awesome for meeting others at the hostel. It also wasn't a huge place so you got to know most of the people that were staying there. My only regret about this place is that I didn't stay longer.

Hostel the Globe Center

Amsterdam, Netherlands

I didn't think the place itself was bad but the entry method into the rooms was weird. You basically have to keep track of a little business card and that's your access to the room. If you have that, you can get access to the key to the room from the front desk, if someone in your room doesn't already have it. I was a ilttle confused about how that process worked but the last person in the room was supposed to return the key to the front desk? I guess I still don't know.

Flying Pig Downtown

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Location was great, environment was pretty good in the bar area for meeting people. Pretty loud so a little difficult to hear people at times but pretty good overall. Secure lockers under the beds were nice. Would probably stay here again.
