Arrived at 5am after a 48 hour bus ride from Quito. Dropped my stuff by the bed and got a few hours sleep. Woke up at 9 to find my bag of presents had been stolen (my own fault for not locking up i know). Went to reception and explained what had happened. I was told by the girl that it was not her problem and that If i spoke to her nicely then she would think about having a look at the CCTV.The entire time this girl was Incredibly patronizing. Worst hostel desk service received in South America.

its Loki, you probably know what you're getting already. This one is a bit different to the others though, more of a holiday resort feel. Pools great, bars great, foods great. beds are a little more basic than usual, but lets be honest you're not staying at Loki for the beds. Best and liveliest hostel in Mancora by far.

I had a broken plank in my bed, made sleeping very uncomfortable. The same for my travelling partner. I do feel sorry submitting a negative review, as the staff themselves were perfectly good. The hostel however is very outdated, bathroom is horrible with urinals practically in the shower. No privacy. The back of the hostel appears to come out into a car park? And the lockers were in the form of over sized tool boxes ( about 4ft long) which can be easily carried out the hostel!

100%. one of the best hostels we have stayed in in South America. Atmosphere is second to none. I would call this a party hostel, with music going until the early hours, so be wary if you want a quiet nights sleep. Can't recommend enough, definite recommend.

More of a hotel than a hostel, has everything you need for airport transfers, which is what most people would use the hostel for I imagine! Great staff and facilities. Airport transfer in the morning is a great addition. Recommend.

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!)

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.

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. 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.

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

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.

View Property Reply

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!
