They don't accept credit cards for payments less than $80. At $20 per night in the dorm, i'd have to stay at least 4 nights to use my card. Provided a key but found the dorm door unlocked every time i came back and no one inside. The last night, the 12-bed dorm had around 18 people inside because the staff put in more mattresses on the floor to maximise profit, even when i asked if i could stay on a fully-booked Saturday and they refused. Party hostel. Nothing more.
A great hotel for the price. The rooms are nostalgic but clean and in perfect working order. The bed capsules are comfortable, private and quiet enough to get a great nights sleep. The onsen/sento and sauna is great, although the water could be a little hotter. Panaramic rooftop view of the river and Asahi building. It's very clean and there are too many reviewers reading 'hotel' in the title and expecting the Ritz. For the price, it's the best in Tokyo!
Good beds and clean dorms but suffers from the one above rocking the one below. Mosquitoes are rife. They have nets covering the windows but people don't use them - opening the window fully and unprotected. Same for the door. Good security with a keycard but people leave the door wide open. Pointless. Showers smell of drains. The girl on reception who works in the morning is hopeless, with the one in the evening is better.
Loud people in the bar (next to the rooms) until late. Can't sleep. Bunks above wobbles the bed below. Wi-fi is a joke. Too many home comforts to protect those who like the idea of travel if everything was like home. Not a hostel for real travellers. No character and terrible service. I waited over 1 hour for a watery-bowl of porridge! The food is terrible quality and overpriced. They forgot my order more than 3 times. In the end, I got foot poisoning (sickness & diarrhoea) from the hostel food
Nice place to stay. Comfortable beds. Staff are nice and helplful. A little cold at night because it's open plan and only one shower. It was ok when I was there because the hostel was empty but when it's busy, I can see it being a problem. Dorm with a view is a little noisy at night being next to the street but can't be helped.
Initially, I was only going to stay for 2 nights but ended up staying for 2 weeks. I've travelled all over China for the past 3 months and this is the best hostel in China by far. The perfect place to relax, chill-out and do nothing. Food is amazing. Try Breakfast Set B and the Double Cheeseburger with Belgian fries. A good place to have a rest from "ordinary" Chinese food. Beds are comfortable and staff are superb. It's out of Yangshuo town but that's why it's better! Calm and peaceful.
The hostel staff were friendly. The hostel itself is pleasant. I only stayed for one night (arriving at night) before leaving the next morning. Showers weren't great and awkward to use. The place was clean and beds were comfortable. I took the hostel's river boat cruise which I found was way overpriced and rather underwhelming.
- No air conditioning. Freezing cold inside the hostel. Our window was broken and constantly open and had to be "fixed" with sellotape. - Uncomfortable beds (you can feel every spring). - No hot water in the shower. Warm at best. - Wi-fi and wired Internet connection was extremely slow and some times just cut out. - Noisy guests way after 11pm. Hostel staff didn't control it. The walls are paper thin. Sounds like next door's party is in my room. + Hostel can book train tickets.
The hostel was nice but the boat trip they sold was clearly overpriced! I had friends who got it much cheaper by finding the tickets themselves. TIP : Buy a package down at the pier, with the sights included as the paying for the 4-day trip and then the sights separately is too much. The boat was in very poor condition.
An excellent hostel!!! The best in Xian The staff are really friendly, helpful and easy to communicate with. They will bend over backwards for you. We had a lovely private view room which was very nice and warm with a good shower. The bar and restaurant is a really cool place to hang out and use wifi. The staff made this hostel what it is. A pat on the back for them. So good, I couldn't convince my girlfriend to leave the hostel for Hua Shan!
A nice hostel in a good location. The beds are comfortable. The showers are nice and hot (when they work). Bob is very helpful for information and advice on getting onward train tickets. Good location, right in the centre of the walled city. Unfortunately, a power cut on the last day meant there was no food or drink, hot water or wifi! However, this isn't the hostels' fault.
Staff are what make this place. They go out of their way to really help you. It's not always useful information that they give you but their heart is in the right place. Our private room was a bit grubby and bare. Air-conditioning was broken for 1 day and no hot water for 2. Takes about 10-15 mins for hot water. Switch it on early. A waste of water though! Free drinking water (also heated) is a plus. Nice bar area to sit and chill out. Other than that, just a very average hostel.
Doljma & Batcha are excellent hosts. They're very helpful and friendly. We planned our own customised trip with them. It's highly recommended but be warned that you will pay for accommodation on your last day for both the trip AND the hostel. The hostel is small and cosy albeit with one bathroom for toilet and shower. When there are over 20 people staying, this can be a problem. Free pickup and drop-off from/to the station. Laundry is very overpriced. Better than UB Guesthouse & Golden Gobi
The hostel is of very high quality. The beds are amazing and the the cooking and showering facilities are probably the best I've seen from a hostel in Russia, but this is NOT a hostel It's a "boutique hotel" as they describe it. As a result, BEWARE! There are extra charges for staying longer than check-out, even if you wait in the lobby style lounge. Expect to pay more than the advertised cost as there are many "hidden" fees. Make sure you are fully aware of all the rules and costs before.
The hostel has comfortable beds, a decent shower. The staff are friendly and helpful. Thank you to Anastasiya and Dennis for trying to help me with my train troubles :)
Not possible to get to the hostel without calling. No signs even on the building door. Directions send you the wrong way. NOT A HOSTEL. A tiny apartment, cramming 10 beds into two small rooms. A tiny foyer connects the two for the receptionist to sit. No common area. Bring your own towel. NO REAL COOKING FACILITIES. A toaster and microwave don't constitute these. Natalia didnt speak English so I had to go to 8 Floor Hostel for info on Tomsk in English so wasted more hours running around.
Impossible to get into the hostel if you can't call!!! It's an apartment in a secure block with a gate. You can't use an intercom to call the hosel. Buy a Russian SIM card before you visit. Some landlady screamed at me that there was no hostel but there was. Staff are friendly but very unorganised and not helpful. They don't speak very good English so it's difficult to ask for things or information. The hostel staff didn't understand I was outside and I wanted to come in.
Katya is very friendly and really helpful. .She will help you with anything you need to know for Yekaterinburg. If you need to know anything, ask her. Unfortunately, I only stayed one night. The hostel is a little overpriced in comparison to other hostels in other cities, but if you really want to visit Yekaterinburg, I recommend you check out this hostel.
Comfortable beds, nice and friendly staff, good facilities. Recommended hostel in Kazan.. Although I recommend not to visit Kazan until next year because the ENTIRE city (serious) is covered in scaffold, It's all under construction for University Olympics 2013. But if you must, go to Gorky 6.
Yuri wasn't around very often but was helpful when he was. The hostel doesn't have a common room but the kitchen is ok. Again, another apartment claiming to be a hostel but it's what to expect in Ukraine. They have a good selection of tea and additives for it. The beds are comfortable, the place is clean and all other facilities such as the shower are good.
The hostel is very comfortable and the staff are very helpful with any request. It's essentially, an apartment with a few rooms but the place is comfortable. There isn't really a common room, and only a kitchen, but it's a cool place to hang out.
I stayed at the hostel for 1 night but they were happy to let me wait around the next day for my night train. Svyatek and Sophia are really friendly staff. The hostel was very quiet when I was there and peaceful if you need a rest.
I had an excellent time at the hostel. Julia is a really friendly and nice girl, who is easy to communicate with. The beds are really comfortable and the hostel has a great style. If I'm ever back in Lviv, I'd stay here again.
Just an average hostel, really. Facilities (showers, toilets) are just ok. The best thing about the hostel is the breakfast. A wider than average variety of ingredients to choose from. Beds are comfortable. Staff feedback is mixed. Staff members like Johanna were really friendly and helpful, always smiling. One member in particular, Valerie (blonde one), was completely miserable and always abrupt and impolite. It was clear she didn't want to be working there at all.
This is the best hostel I've stayed in on my trip so far. An amazing hostel/hotel in a perfectly situated location just across the street from the train station. The staff are really friendly and extremely helpful with any requests. I was given a free upgrade to a single room from a dorm because they weren't very busy at the time. Excellent facilities. A big Spar supermarket is located just next door to the hostel. I highly recommend the bahnhof (train station) restaraunt across the street.
SnowBunnys is one of those few "traditional" hostels left in the World and a great place for hikers in the Summer and boarders in the Winter. Dave is a nice host, who's not always around, but that's not normally a problem unless you really need to contact him. English satellite TV (Sky Sports) is an addiction! And free NUTELLA for breakfast! Relaxing and comfortably-chilled atmosphere and two big hills (Kitzbuheler-Horn & Hahnenkamm) on either side of town to hike up.
The hostel claim to offer a free pickup from the train/bus station. I e-mailed them to confirm this, but on the day of my arrival they told me they couldn't pick me up because their staff decided to go to a wedding in the Czech Republic, taking the car with them!!! With no other way to get there (as the buses only run until afternoon), I decided to stay at the SnowBunnys Hostel and had an excellent time!
The hostel is not too far away from Territet station. A 5 minute walk. It's in a great location to explore beautiful Montreux and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The breakfast is just like every other HI Hostel breakfast.
Excellent stay, once again. It cannot be beaten. The beds and rooms are extremely comfy, the free breakfast is excellent and the receptionists are as helpful as they are beautiful! :-) Highly recommended.
A nice quiet hostel away from the centre.. The hostel facilities and beds were good. The owner was a nice and helpful guy one minute, then the next he could be really confrontational. He was helpful in giving info on where to go and what to do, but then argued which empty beds we must take in the room and accused of using all the soap in the bathroom! Overall a nice stay. However, NO KITCHEN! A big minus and something travellers really want to have. If it had a kitchen, it'd be great!
We stayed 1 night and called the hostel for the free pickup, but nobody came to collect us. We had to take a bus and work out the system. As a result, we arrived really late, having to leave very early the next morning. I spent 4 EUR on a roaming phone call and still no pickup, plus price for bus tickets meant we could have stayed in a closer hostel to the station and paid a little more. Nice hostel and helpful staff (once we arrived). Good wifi but rooms seem to smell of feet!
Nice place but the hostel description is not true! There is no air conditioning in the private room! We boiled to death, it was so hot. We were not offered an alternative room. WARNING: The hostel charge a TOURIST TAX of 1 EUR. It was not described on site before we booked, only when we arrived. The staff are nice, hostel clean and good location. There is no common room and wifi internet is turned off at 23:00 until 09:00 next morning.
Hostel directions are wrong. The hostel was very dirty. Not cleaned during our stay. The owners were very lazy to clean the place. The kitchen bin overflowed for 3 days. Staff smoked inside the hostel. The window in the double room opens fully or not at all. Have your things stolen or boil to death. Breakfast consisted of bread & butter. WiFi conveniently broken during our stay. Receptionist argued for claiming deposit back for last night even though we cancelled more than 48hrs in advance.
It\'s a mountain expedition from the beach to the guesthouse. This place is only for the very physically fit. We were lucky, others might not be as much. For what it is, it\'s extremely expensive, given its far location. The double room is nothing special. Basic but clean. No sea view. No real cooking facilities. The host does not speak any english so beware.
Overall a pleasant stay. The staff were nice & helpful if you have questions but sometimes there can be no-one there. The hostel is very small, the bathroom is just TOO small. A nice cosy lounge upstairs and the bigger dorm is much better than the smaller ones. Much more room and a spectacular view at night. The biggest problem is the WIFI here. It didn\'t work. There is a bandwidth limit and some British southerner (idiots darn sarf) thought it was a good idea to download torrents! Cheers.
AWFUL! NOT a hostel! If you book the dorm, you can't use anything. No kitchen, no fridge, no cutlery. You aren\'t allowed to sit in the courtyard chairs. Dorm guests are only allowed to sit out of sight of \"real paying\" guests. WIFI doesn\'t work here. Water switched off EVERY TIME I had a shower. Very dirty room, wasn't cleaned. The manager is very abrupt, unfriendly and not helpful. Only tourist info given was where to meet girls! No security, gate always open. Avoid this place at all costs!
OK place to stay but DO NOT accept anything offered to you by the hosts, even if you think it\'s a complimentary drink! Everything has a price on your bill. I was begged to have a drink with the hosts on my arrival to find it was added to my bill when I left. Same for snacks offered, and a packed lunch which consisted of one bread roll with jam, costing 4 EUR! No English spoken by the hosts so it will be difficult. Good mountain walk close but the monastaries have to be hitch-hiked to.
Promised a pickup from train station but no show. Problematic stay throughout. No WIFI as advertised. Rob, the owner, was hardly ever around during my stay. Every time I needed some information, he was never there. No rental bikes available as all are broken. Offered us a BBQ one evening and then told us to make it, buy all food and coals. BBecause the owner wasn\'t there, the hostel wasn\'t locked, it wasn\'t very secure. Not a good location. You have to hitch-hike to all nearby sights.
An excellent stay with Heilan and Nell. The hostel was very nice and cosy. Excellent location for an excellent night\'s sleep. A free bowl of Muesli and a cup of tea in the morning is also helpful to start the day. I highly recommend this as the best hostel to stay at in Sibiu if you want a chilled out atmosphere and a relaxing time. If you\'re looking for all night benders and binge drinking, try elsewhere.
I had an excellent stay at Aqualand, which was my second stay since 3 years previous. The hostel is modern and has excellent facilities. The dorm is very big and nice and really comfortable beds. They have wi-fi and internet available. The place is very clean and the staff are really nice and helpful. I look forward to going back again.
One of the best hostels to stay in. The lowest priced hostel I\'ve ever been to. The staff are amazing and friendly. Excellent free breakfast, super clean and facilities are magnificent. Even with the bad weather, it was great just to relax in the hostel at any time. Felt like home ... but better! Many thanks to all the staff, who made it a joy to stay. Biło super. Dziękuje bardzo. Będe powrót na żima.
Great hostel, excellent, friendly and helpful staff. Good price for room, very clean and excellent kitchen. I really enjoyed my stay and hope 2 stay again.
A very nice and modern hostel. Only used for one night as I was flying out of Bangkok the next day. The one main problem is mosquitoes. They are EVERYWHERE in the hostel!! I haven't seen this many on my whole travel through SE Asia!!
It was a nice stay at the hostel. Breakfast, facilities, staff, all ok. No complaints. The best thing was the shower. The best shower ever in a hostel. :-)
No electricity and hot water for the whole day. Any food ordered takes at least an hour to receive. My first room was very dirty but I was given a better one for no charge.
The rooms were satisfactory but only for one night. The staff were not very helpful.. I asked them the night before to book my free airport transfer and in the morning, it never came. They ordered a riskhaw and tried to make pay for it.
Horrible place. Food is terrible. Mine had flies in it. Rooms were filthy, swaring with mosquitoes. Staff did not help with even the smallest request. The view of the Taj is not actually very good. It is very far away and there are other hotels with much better views. The hotel were very pushy for me to book travel transport through them so they could get commission. They would not help otherwise.
Very nice hostel. The owner gave me a double room for the price of a single because my room was already taken. Nice food, good staff, very helpful. Well recommended.
I had to pay twice as my payment was \"lost\" or \"not received\" for both my second nights stay and two laundry washes, according to staff. This dampened the whole experience.
The WORST HOSTEL I\'ve ever stayed in. Advert says 24h reception. All day, no-one was there. This caused massive problems with security, help and assistance. Also told FREE Internet and Wi-Fi. Not free Internet and NO Wi-Fi. Free pickup from station but 100rub to get back. Our friend arrived 1 day later and when we found staff they refused to collect him from station. We had to go. On advert it says free washing, free lockers. No lockers, washing 100rub. Hostel was not cleaned for my entire stay.
In the end I didn\'t stay here after going somewhere else, but the lady was very nice. The place was clean and welcomly warm. It has an outside toilet, but the banya looks to make up for this.
Excellent, helpful and friendly staff (thanks Masha) made it a real joy to stay here. Everything else was great, no complaints at all.
An excellent hostel. Brand new, not yet complete. But it is amazing. An included breakfast would make it almost perfect. I know it\'s off-season but English-speaking staff are very much needed here. Because I speak Polish and some Russian I got by, but others will struggle. Also, MOST IMPORTANT!! The bus ride is not 3 - 4 hours but at least 5, which could be 6 or 7 hours. Moscow traffic was horrendous and I almost missed my trans sib train havng to run after it at the platform to get on!
Didn\'t stay in the end, but popped in to tell them I was cancelling and staying with some friends instead. Even though I didn\'t stay, staff were lovely people and very nice to me and friendly. What I saw of the place was very nice, more ideal for couples or people wanting some peace and relaxation. A good place to stay if you\'re on the island.

I had a really pleasant stay in the Chocolate hostel Extra friendly and helpful staff. TThe only problem I had was with check-in. I wasn\'t aloud to go into the room early in the morning (around 7am) which is understandable. However, during my stay, new guests were being allowed in around 2am whilst I was sleeping. Other than, fantastic. Although, no chocolate was actually made! :-(
This is not a hostel. It is a flat. It has a great old fashioned look, but is located far from the main city centre. It is a 3 bed dorm, all beds in the same room to clear some other The hostel was not cleaned in the 5 nights I stayed there, however. Because it is a flat, you will have to look for your own entertainment.
The hostel is basically a flat. This means two showers and one toilet. The beds were comfortable for a good nights sleep. Natasha the receptionist, was very helpful and a really nice and friendly girl. However, she is the only receptionist! All day, every day! Marcus the hostel manager, is a great and helpful guy. Unfortunately, one night the hostel was completely unstaffed as both Natasha and Marcus were away! Not good if someone needed help or assistance, or even worse, some emergency!
The hostel is basically an apartment This means one shower and only two toilets. However, the a place is very nice, clean and modern. Aricio was the star of the place. He is a great host, and will strive to always help you no matter what request.
A great atmospheric hostel to stay at. The staff were really helpful. There were no lockers but the place seems safe enough. A big thanks to Eddie for sending me my clothes that were accidentally left behind. Went completely out of his way to help.
Great place I would recommend it to everybody that likes fun.
What was meant to be a 3-day stay to collect VISA\'s, turned out to be a 1 month stay at the hostel and settling in Warsaw, with a flat, job and new life, thanks to New World St. Hostel! The staff are the most friendly people you will ever meet, who have become my closest friends here. Always willing to help whether it to be show you the information you require, or a good time in Warsaw! The hostel is perfectly located to where it\'s all happening, right on Nowy Swiat! The hostel itself is a modern and vibrant place to be. The atmosphere is cool and relaxing, where you can take life at your own pace. The breakfast, especially at the weekends, are something of a must. Try the pancakes made by the hostel owners themselves! It\'s no wonder why New World St. hostel is still voted #1 hostel in Warsaw.
Nice place. Location is a little bit of a bus journey. The beds were in need of a little repair. The rooms basic. Security needs to be improved as the lockers were falling apart.
