A Casa di Amici

Palermo, Italy

Great hostel workers who spoke excellent english and were very helpful filling us in on the best way to see the sights of Palermo. Hostel only had one bathroom for females and one for males which could cause problems getting going in the morning.


Agora Hostel

Catania, Italy

Security of this place is awful. No keys to get in not only the hostel, but hostel rooms. A totally random person could walk right into a dorm room. Staff was friendly, but poor english. Decent kitchen and common room facilities, toilettes and showers were on par.


Isaacs Hostel

Dublin, Ireland

The 16 bed dorm was a symphony of snoring, but you could buy ear plugs for 0.50 euros which helped a lot. I didn't appreciate however and there was no fix was that the bunk beds were angled away from the wall in order to accommodate them all in the room, leaving one side with a railing and one side without railing, meaning you could roll right out of the top bunk. Kitchen, common room, tv area and reading facilities were excellent however, very nice place to be.


Sleepzone

Galway, Ireland

Good clean hostel with a large kitchen and several refrigerators to store food. Beds were comfortable and had reading lamp, I was in 3 rooms 3 different nights due to my own lack of planning, and each room was clean with ensuit toilet. Bus pick up/drop off for excellent tours to Cliffs of Moher and Connemara National Park for 20 euros each. Tesco around the corner and easy walk to the city centre and bus station.


Vertigo Vieux-Port

Marseille, France
77%

Good hostel located in a very secure area of Marseille. Close walk to the beach, harbour, main shopping area and train station. Rooms were clean, but ours was advertised as having a locker, which was really just a couple sheets of plywood nailed together not very securely. We felt safer just leaving our things on our bed. Not much atmosphere in this hostel, we didn't see another guest until breakfast. Not recommended travelling alone. Very friendly and helpful staff, recommended for groups

Facilities of this hostel were amazing. Our private twin was nicer than a hotel, with a corner room with two windows overlooking the Med and Nice. Staff were friendly and helpful, but seemed very catered to a much younger uni-age crowd (which is what the hostel was full of). Definitely recommend this hostel, but as a young professional would avoid it during a uni break unless you want to make friends with a bunch of kids spending daddy's money on summer break.

MuchoMadrid

Madrid, Spain

While our arrival was before check in time, I did not expect to have our bags taken and be promptly kicked out of the hostel, being denied even the opportunity to change our clothes in the bathroom. The woman employed to clean was nice, but the man behind the desk was very rude, and complained about his job a lot. He was extremely unhelpful, answering "anywhere" when asked about a dinner recommendation. No common area beyond a small kitchen, where we felt very unwelcome.

Great hostel located in an awesome area of Lisbon. Staff helped us find a beach to drag our very hungover asses to upon arrival. Very clean and secure.

Yes! Porto Hostel

Porto, Portugal
100%

This is the best hostel I've ever stayed at! We were so sad to leave after 2 nights. Anna the walking tour guide is amazing, best tour guide we had in 2 weeks in Europe. Highly recommend the hostel dinner/pub crawl, was a great way to make friends within the hostel, and it was a bangin' night out. Hostel was clean and very secure, located in a great area of Porto. Hostel was full of young professionals rather than students which added so much to the atmosphere.

Hostel 33

Faro, Portugal
97%

This hostel was a great way to start our holiday. The staff were very friendly and helpful, helping us use the bus system, recommendations for dinner, and arrange a bike trip. The twin ensuite room was nicer than most hotels, with a lovely balcony. However, not a lot of traveller atmosphere, the only time we saw other guests was at breakfast.

This was my first hostel experience, and definitely left me anxious to travel more. The bar in the hostel was fun creating a great atmosphere, and the pub crawl was amazing. Very friendly and helpful staff, walking distance to las rambalas as well.

Dorms have lockers under the beds which is really nice. No plug anywhere near a mirror so I had to curl my hair beside the front desk. Helpful staff, hostel located right behind tube stop in quiet area of London.
