This was a lovely hotel & I enjoyed my stay here, but only when you have gained entrance to the hotel! I booked this hotel some time ago & had not received the instruction that I had to email the manager my time of arrival. It would be very helpful for there to be either set check-in times, & then for the rooms to have numbers as he had to tell us "up the stairs, go to the top floor, & room to the right". People coming in kept trying our door (maybe could not tell their left from their right).

We had a good stay here - close to the underground (Victoria) and has many cafes, restaurants, and bars nearby. There's a Sainsburys and a Tesco also near to the hotel. The only downside was that the towels in the room are very very rough and actually hurt to use them, and the plastic sheet on the bed is just under a very thin bedsheet which means you feel that horrible plastic all the time. The staff were friendly and helpful, it was very easy to come and go, and all in all a good stay.

we really enjoyed our stay here as it was very convenient to get around the city, and the neighbourhood was really pretty with lots of bars and restaurants. The room had a fridge, hairdryer, computer with wifi code, great shower and its own entrance. My husband and I had s great stay here!

Great guest house with friendly and helpful staff that always smile! The rooms are spotless and comfortable. It's not located in the center of town, but this is good because it's not noisy. Be sure to request Mr. Siv, the best tuk tuk driver! We will stay here again when we return!

Overall this hostel was okay. The staff were friendly and tried to help us much as possible. The location is good as it's located near major bus lines. However, we had problems with our beds being unmade. We had to ask twice for the beds to be made. The final time, only one bed was made with the same dirty sheets while the other bed was still unmade. So we made our own beds. The showers aren't very good - little pressure and not hot.

A great hostel for location and security. Also a cool place to hang out and relax. We didn't sleep too well due to our dorm being near the cleaners' station and they had walkie-talkies that were so loud and they were chatting noisily very early in the morning. The toilets were not very clean and smelled very bad, and the showers were difficult to use as there were no hooks to hang your stuff and there was just a curtain. The staff were very friendly and they picked us up from the station.

Very good facilities, very comfortable dorms and common rooms. The staff were so helpful and gave great advice and services. The only problem we had was that there was no hand soap or toilet roll in any of the toilets - but we just used our own. I would definitely stay here again as it was great value for money and near the main street of Ulaanbaatar. They also pick you up from the station and arrange transport.

I'm glad to hear that you have enjoyed your stay with my family and Golden Gobi guesthouse. We want to thank you for writing comments about the hostel to improve our services and facilities. So we took your advice and now we have a toilet paper rolls, hand soap and door ring already for your convenience! Thank you for staying with us! Come back soon :)

Excellent hostel! We were welcomed and invited out to meet other travellers at the hostel in a nearby bar/restaurant. Aricio really cares about his hostel and gave great advice and helpful tips to us. The location is very good, and the hostel has a real cosy 'home' feel. I would stay at this hostel again and highly recommend it.

This hostel is a must-stay when you visit Istanbul! From the minute we arrived, the Agora Team (Nadir, Mustafa, Volkan and the other guys) were so welcoming, helped us organise our days and recommended a fabulous Turkish bath which was a heavenly experience. The hostel has excellent facilities - fast internet, really clean rooms, showers and toilets, and is near all the main sights. I would highly recommend this hostel- enjoy your stay!

Very good hostel! We really enjoyed our stay there. The British guy who checked us in was so helpful and really friendly. He gave us great advice and made us feel very welcome. The hostel was in a great location - near the metro, or an easy bus ride to all the sights. The only slight downer is if you're dead set on cooking, the kitchen isn't quite up to it, but apart from that - great staff, fab lockers, safe and good location. Would highly recommend!

Beware, it�s a hostel in name only. It's a halfway house for old people, transients and shady characters. Not sure if some of these people had paid for a room as the doors are never locked and anyone could walk in off the street to use the common room/ kitchen. It was hard to meet people because the atmosphere of this hostel was weird. Disgusting toilets - people smoking in them, no hand soap, empty toilet roll dispensers. Slow internet! Expensive for what it was - worst hostel ever!

View Property Reply

Dear Emma, This is a hostel open to people of all ages.And people that dont pay for the night cannot use the common room, so your suspects are unfounded. For any kind of problem you should�ve asked at the reception, from the missing toilet paper to the people smoking in the bathroom (which is clearly prohibited). We could have helped you if you only had told us, but you didnt say anything in the three days you spent with us. kind regards

A great hostel with great advice from the really friendly staff. They have a nice kitchen, and it's a stone's throw from the picturesque town of Cesky Krumlov. The whole hostel is really clean, and they have a fabulous lounge area to relax in in the evenings. Next door is a lovely restaurant with great food and cheap beer! Enjoy!

Rude guests screaming and singing from 3-4am. The staff on duty at the time was unhelpful or unwilling to deal with the situation. However, we were moved to a quieter room by another staff member the next morning. Everything is a bit rundown and not the cleanest hostel. This hostel is good if you don't care about getting a good night's sleep, and you like to party all night.

Great hostel - near all the sites (we did our own circular walking tour in a day and it was fabulous). Our dorm was cheap and had 6 beds - very clean. Very good security lockers, and you can leave your luggage in security lockers downstairs after you check out. It's very quiet in the rooms, as the bar is downstairs on the ground floor, and the doors and walls are thick so you get a good night's sleep. I would recommend this hostel to anyone and would stay here again.

A fab hostel and wished we had been able to stay more than one night! But had to fly onwards to Germany. The staff were so friendly, helpful and fun - arranging activities and taking time to make your stay an enjoyable one. Great kitchen facilities, warm and secure rooms, great character and altogether a fab place. Very conveniently located, just a few stops from Diagonal (where Gaudi's La Pedrera is) and then just walk south and you hit the Rambla and everything else. Highly recommend it!
