Fabrizzio's Petit

Barcelona, Spain
100%

Easy 100%. The guys here work very hard to make sure you have the best experience possible. They're all amazing. They also put on events such as beach parties and bar crawls to get everyone together and talking. A small hostel relatively, so a great atmosphere, we stayed 4 days here, and by the time we left we really felt like part of the family. Location is right on Girona metro stop, so the city is at your doorstep.100% recommend.

Fantastic hostel, perfect location (Interlaken is relatively small anyway). There is pickups from the hostel for all the adventure companies such as Alpinraft. Breakfast is the best free breakfast in the 20 hostels we've stayed in this year. You even get free tokens that can be used for the washing machines. Definitely recommended, we'll be staying here again if we come back to Interlaken! (We probably will, it's a fantastic place!)

Hostel Pisa

Pisa, Italy

Yes it's cheap. But not having bed sheets and either being boiling hot or bitten severely by mosquitos just isn't worth it. I think this hostels got its priorities wrong. They're running BBQ's every other day, and have table tennis and pool tables which is great, but when I'm lying there on a plastic matress and pillow, sweating and getting bitten all over, its like trying to run before you can walk. Sort the basics out first, like somewhere comfortable to sleep. Don't stay here.

Fantastic hostel. We were booked for a 6 bed but they upgraded us to the 2 bed. Air con was a blessing. Hostel looks and feels great, love the decoration. good location due to proximity to the metro stop. Definite recommend, stay here!

PLUS Camping Jolly

Venice, Italy
91%

Great place to stay, the only thing that lets this hostel down is the location, as you have to use their shuttle bus service to get to Venice, as the train station is about 30 mins walk for us interailers. Other than that this place is pretty cool, the pool was fantastic after a long trip travelling through central europe. This is definitely a young place, and every night you will get hoards of young travellers hit the camp shop for drinks, then party outside till the early hours. Recommended.

Great Hostel. Real small old school hostel feel. We walked from the train station which was quite far, you will most likely have to use the public transportation. Free tea and coffee and use of kitchen which is a definite plus! Definite recommend.

Hostel Blues

Bratislava, Slovakia

Great hostel. Amazingly helpful and friendly staff, they are very genuine. Showers weren't the cleanest I've seen in my travels, but It wasn't a problem. Great location (Bratislava is pretty small anyway). On that note you can see this place in one day, we stayed a single night, and still felt like we had seen everything when we left the following morning. Definite recommend.

Generator Hostel Hamburg

Hamburg, Germany
80%

Overall Good hostel. We did have to move rooms once because there was a crazy old German man in one of the rooms, but I suppose that isn't their fault. My one gripe would be that there was no air flow in the building. The windows open just a slit, and the whole building was very hot and stuffy! If you like the big multinational hostels then this is pretty standard and you won't have any problems.

Our favourite hostel by far. It's basically a hotel. 100% stay here for your trip. The only negative was the older woman staff member who Mothers you when you're using the washer and kitchen facilities. Tried to tell me to wash my pan up before I'd even eaten my food. But yeah fantastic hostel

Hi Daniel, Great to hear that you have enjoyed your self here during your stay! Our motherly staff member can sometimes get a bit too excited about our product and likes to see things clean. We try to moderate it at times:) Hope to see you again some other time! Kind regards, Meininger Amsterdam

Lybeer Travellers' Hostel

Bruges, Belgium

They are very honest in stating that building works are going on, but I think their assumption that this will not detract from the hostel experience is wrong. There was supposed to be a "bathroom" on each floor, there wasn't. Cleanliness was effected also. Wifi was spotty to say the least. The rooms were boiling hot, and to open the window meant a stream of Mosquitos coming through and biting during the night. I've slept in a lot nicer hostels for the same price.

All rooms open to public have been renewed. Last rooms under construction are almost finished, they open up next week. We never said there were bathrooms on each floor, for now there are 2 brand new bathrooms, every floor is going to have its bathroom soon. We have three wifi networks and they work like a charm, plus it's free of cost! If it's 30+ degrees outside, yes buildings tend to be hot, and no Belgium doesn't need airconditioning. Sorry, we'll tell the mosquitos to stay away.

Fantastic "new age" hostel. Basically a hotel. It can be argued you lose atmosphere when places are this big, so maybe only book in if part of a group, but we found it easy enough to meet people in the bar downstairs. Pricing is above average for our trip, but I think that's Paris more than the hostel itself!
