Rooms were airy and clean but with limited secure storage.The upstairs lounge/bar is a great space. Unfortunately currently the downstairs lounge/kitchen is uninviting, dark and not a space you want to enter.However you are not allowed to eat warm food in the common bar so I had to go sit alone in the dark (I had been upstairs chatting but was asked to move).This area also closes at 10pm. I felt the hostel had a few too many awkward rules and focused on the public bar rather than hostel guests.
The hostel is really well located near the town centre, bus station and train station. It is also right near the entrance to a number of walking trails. There are no lockers in the rooms but other than that the facilities were nice with a fireplace in the lounge and a decent kitchen etc.
This hostel was very clean and had nice character. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable.
This hostel is located next to a large train station which is handy though you will still need to get a metro into the centre of Paris. The staff were not very friendly when we checked in and didn't seem to know much about Paris whenever we asked about museums, directions etc. The rooms are large with comfortable beds. Each be has its' own curtain, light, powerpoint and shelf which is great and there are cages to store your luggage in. The hostel needs a guest microwave and kettle at least.
The staff were very friendly! This hostel is right in the heart of Amsterdam and easy to get to and from. There were no lockers or kitchen but you can use the fridge, kettle and microwave at the hostel around the corner which was fine. There are very steep stairs to get to the hostel rooms but other than that is was fine.
This hostel is short walking distance from the Reichstag and the Brandenburg gate and is directly opposite the main train station. The four bed dorm we stayed in was clean, well sized and had a good sized ensuite bathroom. There is a kitchen downstairs and lots of seating in the common areas. We would definitely choose to stay here again in Berlin as it made getting everywhere in Berlin and outside of it really easy.
This hostel is located really close to the Charles bridge on the castle side of Prague. The staff were lovely and super helpful with information on Prague. The dormitory room was spacious and had lockers for everyone, the ensuite bathroom caused a little bit of waiting in the morning but nothing too bad. You also get a towel and body wash when you arrive which started our stay off well. Would definitely stay here again.
Because the hostel was busy when we stayed the staff had upgraded us to a private room which was terrific and had its' own bathroom. We were able to walk to the main station and into the city too (about 15 minutes to the station and about 15 more to the city centre), there is a supermarket nearby and a kitchen for guests to use (small and doesn't have alot of cutlery or decent sized saucepans but is usable). I would definitely stay here again if I return to Munich.
This hostel is well located not far from the city centre and the train station. It was extremely clean with friendly staff who were happy to answer all our questions. The hostel had a common kitchen and also a common lounge area and everything was really clean and fresh. We would have enjoyed staying here longer if we'd had time.
There are very few hostels to choose from in Luzern and this one is really expensive for what you get, even if it is Switzerland. If you are not a member of their hostel association you pay extra per night so be aware of this. There was a microwave and kettle which was good and breakfast is included (really good breakfast). You can walk to town from the hostel and there is also a bus nearby but be aware that this hostel is outside of the city centre so walking from the station would be too far.
We really enjoyed staying here, the rooms are spacious and clean and the staff are friendly. We were only here for one night and arrived fairly late so I'm not sure about the location in relation to tourist attractions but it was easy enough for us to get to sing public transport and is right near a supermarket.
Staff at Roger's house are terrific and make you feel at home as soon as you arrive. There is a kitchen that has all you need to make a delicious meal if you don't feel like eating out at one of the many restaurants just on the doorstep. The hostel is in a good location and makes it easy to get around San Sebastian.
This hostel is in a really good location just off del Sol square in the centre of town. The hostel has a kitchen that is pretty well equipped though unfortunately noone seems to wash their dishes so you often have to wash before you use anything. Dorm rooms have lockers and room keys. All in all this was a good hostel, we'd stay here again.
The location of this hostel is just on the edge of the city so we found it easy to get to from the train station by walking. The hostel has a kitchen and some couches in the dining room and common passage. However the lights were turned out on us at 11pm with no warning as the desk was closing. The night staff were not overly friendly or helpful and we found it extremely rude that he turned out the lights even though there were at least 4 people still using the common area.
The beds have a curtain and their own reading light as well as cages underneath to store things in if you have a lock. Unfortunately the line at reception was always really long so checking in and out took a long time and asking any questions about the city as well. There is a bar/restaurant downstairs with alot of seating and there were 2 microwaves upstairs. Breakfast is included and was fairly good though they tend to pack it up 15 minutes before the end time so get down earlier if you can.
Valerius who runs the hostel is terrific, he is really friendly and helpful with tourist advice. There is also a cat called Victor who was great fun to play with. We got upgraded to a 3 person room as the hostel wasn't full when we were there so that was a treat after large dorm rooms. there is a communal kitchen with a dining table where you can meet fellow travellers and a terrific bakery nearby for breakfast and lunch. We loved this hostel!!
Staff were lovely and really helpful. The room was really spacious and had lockers that you could put your own lock on. There is a nice little lounge room and eating area. Although there is no kitchen there are tea and coffee making facilities and plenty of seats to use if you bring back your own food. Lots of restaurants nearby. Really nice courtyard and very clean hostel though it got cold at night with just the one blanket.
The room of this hostel was more like a hotel as we had our own full sized bathroom. There is a nice common area ut unfortunately there is no kitchen or even a kettle to make a hot drink. It is located directly next to Rome Termini train station which was perfect for us and you can walk to the Colosseum in about 20 minutes. We would stay here again.
Staff are friendly, good location. There is no kitchen and you're not allowed to take food into the bar area. The sauna was not working when we were here but the steam room was fun. Bedrooms have lockers but the ensuite shower made for a long wait time when everyone in the room wanted to shower. The wifi was difficult to get onto and dropped out alot, we were told the hostel doesn't have enough coverage for their expansion last summer and alot of people seemed to be struggling to use it.
This hostel is well located with a water taxi stop just outside. Rooms are spacious, we were in the largest dorm and the beds have a divider between them so you feel like you're in your own room. The major issue we had with the hostel is that there is no kitchen and they don't allow you to bring in food of your own at all. Venice is expensive anyway and this made it even more so.
The staff are friendly and very helpful, they even put breakfast out early for the day we were leaving. The hostel is close to the train station but about 15 min walk to town centre. The hostel was really clean, had a comfortable couch in the small common area and a usable kitchenette. Bathrooms were really clean though the shower area is used by boys and girls so change in the cubicle. Lockers under beds (bunks are 3 beds high).
This hostel is in a great location next to the main square in the old town and is above a cafe/bar (we didn't get time to use it but it looked nice). We were the only people in the hostel so they let us check out late the next day which was great. Good kitchen and about 3 or 4 different bathrooms. The hostel is nicely furnished and I wish we'd had more time in Pecs so we could have stayed here longer.
Really enjoyed our one night here, the owners picked us up from the station and returned us in the morning. The house is a little bit of a walk from the centre of town but it's easy (about 10 minutes, all flat). Unfortunately we didn't have time to use the other wellness facilities like the spa and sauna. The kitchen is a good size and there is a dining table in the common area. Would stay here again.
Really enjoyed our stay here, the staff were really helpful and gave great advice. The hostel was well located, nice and close to a metro station and really short walking distance to the main shopping street. Well equipped kitchen and great atmosphere when we were there.
Really friendly staff, good kitchen, spacious bedrooms though the beds were very wobbly. We'd stay here again as it was really close to the train station.
Good kitchen, free breakfast and nice staff at this hostel. Be warned the bunks are 3 beds high so if you're afraid of heights perhaps request a bottom bunk ahead of time. The staff will help you book tours to Auschwitz and the salt mines among other things. Really short walk to the main square.
The staff were really helpful with information on sightseeing, bars and where to eat. The kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms were all clean. There were lockers in our rooms and when the first key didn't work, the man at the desk immediately sorted it out for us. Great location, really close to the main shopping street and just down the street from a metro stop.
Excellent hostel, staff were great and the activities on offer were really fun We did the swedish meatball cooking class and loved it, also the movie nights were good, though the movies were very Swedish. Great facilities with a big kitchen and lots of toilets and bathrooms scattered throughout the hostel. Wish we could have stayed longer! Oh and there is a sauna as well.
The staff at this hostel were extremely friendly and helpful, it is a brand new hostel so is still being worked on. Good location, security lockers were provided. The only downside was that the kitchen was not available to be used (Copenhagen is expensive so be prepared). We would stay here again if we were in Copenhagen. The hostel is quite cool looking and each bed has a curtain and its own light.
No kitchen and the communal showers were too communal (though male and female were seperated). Although the hostel was not full we (3 mid twenties females) were put in a room with a 50-60 year old man. This filled the room and was a little awkward since space was at a premium and the demographic was off. We also got stuck in the lift (probably our own fault as we accidentally touched the door) but help was slow and unsympathetic. Do not stay here to meet people, location was good.
We had free pasta (cooked for you with a sauce of tomato or pesto depending on the night) at this hostel which was terrific and you could use the small but functional kitchen if you wanted to cook your own thing. Breakfast was really good with lots of options and combined with pasta dinner your food budget for the day was minimal. Nice staff and decent bathrooms. Good hostel overall!
The staff at Snuffel are terrific and make you feel welcome immediately. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there is a kitchen. We had a great time at Snuffel and would go back again. Be aware that there is no chillout area/lounge so if you don't want to hang out in the bar/seating area then you'll need to go to your room or to the courtyard. The showers are in a separate room (you just walk through the courtyard) but this wasn't a problem. There are toilets and sinks near the bedrooms.
This hostel is very clean and secure and in a good location, though it would help if there were directions on the hostel website as I didn't know where to go when I got off the bus. It would be helpful if there was a kitchen, however hot water and a microwave were available. The staff were changeable, sometimes they were helpful and friendly and at other times they were quite rude and condescending. I would stay here again, Luxembourg city was beautiful!
Good location and walking distance from St. Pauli. There is also an underground directly opposite it. The kitchen appeared to be well equipped though i didn't use it. The showers were were unisex which would be fine but they had see through doors so you wouldn't want to be using them if people you didn't know were in there. There were also only 2 showers available for the whole hostel. Dorm rooms did not lock, sheets and towels were extra. Felt like there were lots of added costs.
There was a really nice terrace for when it was sunny. The rooms were clean as were the bathrooms. The kitchen was really well equipped!
Good location, kitchen was a little average but still decent. I enjoyed my stay here, beds were comfortable, hostel was clean.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean and the bathroom, although small was private and clean. There are communal computers for use and the owners was very friendly and helpful. The location was also good as we only had a short walk from Monastiraki station.
Hostel Meteora is in a great location, close to the centre of town and a 30min bus ride from the monasteries. Unfortunately the first room we were given didn't have a bathroom and we had to use the bathroom in a different dormitory which means that there can be up to 10 people sharing the same bathroom. Air conditioning is available but you need to ask for the remote. People are allowed to smoke in the common lounge/bar and as a non smoker I didn't want to go in there as it smelt.
The hostel is almost like a shared apartment and the dorm room was located at the bottom of the hill in Riomaggiore which we really appreciated when carrying our bags. The kitchen was big enough and there was a dining table that we all sat around and got to know each other. There is a also a terrace which is great in the evening. The bathroom was big and fairly clean. There are no security lockers, the beds were single beds not bunk beds though which was nice.
The two owners of the hostel were wonderful and helped wherever possible. The location is terrific and is just a short walk to Amalfi (5-10min). Breakfast is provided though there is no kitchen for guest use. The rooms were clean and we had a key to the door, though no security locker (we left valuables with Philipo at the desk instead). Other than breakfast there is no real shared room so meting people can be a little difficult since you don't really see people during the day.
We had a great time at Ciak hostel and met some great people. The staff were friendly and really helpful, they gave us great tips about where to eat and there was a pasta night which we enjoyed. The hostel has a kitchen and although the bathrooms were small they were clean.
Unfortunately we got "upgraded" to a room on the top floor with o wifi access even though it is on all 4 other floors. There is no kitchen, however there is a great common lounge with Turkish lounges (though it gets a bit noisy at night because it becomes a bar and is the only communal area). The location is really good and you can walk to everything.
Although there is no kitchen breakfast and dinner are provided as part of your booking and were delicious. There is a terrific outdoor communal area that we loved relaxing in. This was the perfect place to relax and reenergise!
We enjoyed our time in Cappadocia. The hostel staff were lovely and breakfast is decent, however there was no key to the room and no security lockers so you just had to trust that noone would enter the room. There is a small safe for passports etc., no kitchen. All in all a good hostel and in a cave!
We had an enjoyable stay in the hostel and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There were lockers in the room and the hostel was in an excellent location near most attractions (ie. Blue Mosque) and close to the tram. The only common area was where breakfast was served and there is no kitchen but this would not prevent us from staying here again.
The hostel staff were fabulous and extremely welcoming, There was a meal offered for 10 euro each night which was delicious (if you were cooking it did take up most of the kitchen but the chef was happy to move things for you), there was a free walking tour that collected people from the hostel and was very fun. I really enjoyed the location and security of this hostel (electronic entry, though it does beep when you open your locker at night). I had a great stay at this hostel.
Equity point had a well equipped kitchen, terrific showers and a comfortable lounge with separate tv room (so you could actually hear the tv).
Blue coast hostel is located close to the bus station and close to the main square. Unfortunately I found that none of the staff knew much about the local area (with exception of the owner) and did not seem to want to find out for us. The bathrooms were dirty and the toilet paper was often empty or nearly so. We ended up spending quite a bit of money on food in Setubal as we were not permitted to use the kitchen to cook for ourselves. The kitchen often smelled of cigarette smoke.
I stayed at Hostel 33 just for one night after arriving on a late flight into Faro. The owner Ricardo was extremely helpful and friendly and showed us around. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen seemed well equipped though I didn't have time to use it and the bathroom was nice and big (and clean). The hostel was also close to the us station which was really good.
Although the hostel was clean and very well located having to check in down the road at a different hostel was very inconvenient. The lack of staff at the hostel was also a problem as there was no way to ask about facilities, Brussels or extending your stay without going back to the other hostel. They claim there are no staff in order to keep costs down but I would suggest they hire a backpacker in return for accommodation. The kitchen had no bench space, showers were good, beds are comfortable.

This hostel is in a great location for seeing Edinburgh. However the common room is in a room of its' own and if you aren't going to the common room specifically you don't necessarily meet anyone. The rooms were in a separate building to the common areas which was fine but a little annoying if you wanted to use wifi as you had to go to the common building. The kitchen was very messy (not the hostels fault but with so many people it gets dirty very quickly).
Really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and you almost feel like part of family as soon as you arrive. Kitchen was well setup with plenty of bench space for more than one person to cook at the same time.
I absolutely loved my stay at the Grand Luxe hostel. The dorm rooms were spacious, the lounge and kitchen were comfortable and clean and the staff were very helpful. I was also able to access a gym around the corner for free which was fantastic. The Grand Luxe hostel felt like a hotel and I think once more people discover it, it will need a waiting list.
