Great place for solo travelers to meet other people. The staff are unfailingly responsive and friendly. The breakfast is great, though the dinners are better for meeting people rather than for being a satisfying meal.
The staff at Elbrus are incredibly helpful. And the balconies on each floor are lovely spots to hang out, check out the views over Kathmandu and make new friends.
The staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. Fingerprint readers didn't work but they had spare keys. It's a bit awkward to not have a private changing area adjacent to the showers. The rooms are light and airy, with decent storage lockers in each room, and your bed has its own reading light and pocket for small stuff. Check in/out take an unusually long amount of time. I do wish the common area was built to make it easier for solo travelers to meet.
I had to stay at TOC Hostel due to room renovations at The Hat. I will give my thanks to the staff at The Hat for quickly re-booking me and taking care of the payment. And I can recommend TOC, for anyone who can not find a room at The Hat.
Wayne and Jo were wonderful hosts, who were always extremely helpful. The hostel is in an excellent location - the bus stop down the block can take you either into town or to the ocean. Or you can walk 5 mins to shops/restaurants etc. The facilities are great - always tidy, with both indoor and outdoor seating. The only downside: The breakfast is fairly meager. I wish I had 'topped up' by buying fruit, cheese, yogurt etc from Woolies and used their ample fridge and cupboard facilities.
The staff are extremely responsive to any needs one has. Free unlimited tea and coffee is a fantastic feature, paired with their lovely front garden. The breakfast is proper. A great hostel for adult travelers.
Frankie and the staff at El Granado are absolutely top notch. The hostel itself is clean, modern and spacious. It's easy to meet other backpackers in the common room. The 2 EUR breakfast is a nice option to have. I'll definitely stay here for my next trip to Granada.

super friendly and helpful staff.. the location is on the promenade into town (10-15 minutes on foot). nice bar with patio though it's not open every day. rooms are very pleasant and come with medium size lockers. breakfast was a bit meagre.
The staff is very helpful and friendly. I only wish the breakfast was a bit more substantial - bread and jam can only go so far.
"en suite" does not necessarily mean you have a toilet adjoining your room. the single room has no shelves. the excursions offered there are exorbitantly priced. you are given a free meal or shisha for posting your review prior to departure. that being said, youssef is a gem and will go the extra mile for you.
The desk staff at the hostel were very pleasant and helpful. I liked how the beds were made, and that they provide little towels and bars of soap. There were several aspects of this hostel that are far from "Perfect". The breakfast is atrocious, the rooms are poorly ventilated yet let in quite a bit of street noise, and the bathroom/shower facilities are microscopic.
Very friendly staff. Great breakfast! Note that they provide linens including a towel.
Friendly, young staff at the front desk and bar. The 4-person room was quite spacious. Modern facilities. Skip the breakfast on offer there, unless you really love carbs.
The staff at the hostel are extremely helpful. Their internet service is spotty though. The hostel itself lacks ambiance, but given how interesting Berlin is -and how much cool stuff there is to see nearby- there isnt much reason one ought to stay inside.
Helpful staff, really lovely breakfast, and fantastic view from the top. And within a couple minutes walk to major sights.
Front staff was very helpful. It would have been nice to know what additional fees one could expect, eg security deposit, locker fees, etc. For example, the lockers available required payment to the hostel and a guest could not use his/her own lock.
