Location is pretty good but you have to walk up the hill to get to closest metro station. I took taxi there. They had low occupancy so I was only one in 4 bed room and bed was really comfortable. Each bed comes with a light and outlet so you won't be fighting for that with other people in the room. Very cool staff and backyard area was pretty cool too.

This place is on the top of a hill. But you will get a great view from there. Apparently the area wasn't really good before but I didn't feel unsafe while I was there. Take tab if you have more than one bag with you. On the bottom of the hill, there are local guys on motorbike transporting people between top and bottom of the hill for 4 reals so you can use that to be like a local. I used it once it was fun!! Very close to the beach and metro station isn't that far either.

Not that far from metro station. I was there for Olympic games so price was higher than normal. There were so many people and be careful when you are booking your bed. The one I stayed was 3 story buck bed and because I was last one in the room only option I had was top one. Really close to ceiling. The room was really hot because they put so many people in a tiny room that I couldn't sleep. Staff was there 24/7 so that was good but anyone can walk in and no one can realize who's staying there.

Location is pretty good only thing is you have to walk there either from bottom of the hill or top of the hill. For front door key, you will scan your fingerprint so you dont need to worry about paying for key deposit or losing key at all. Atmosphere of the place was fun. I was there for Olympic games and it was a mix of young family and young adults. There is a bar in their back yard and staff made Caipirinha. It was fun I wish I was staying there longer.

I tried to get there from nearest metro station and I got confused with street so it took a while to get there... It's down the hill so it's a hike when you are heading to major street. Staffs didn't really speak English and this was my first night in Brazil and didn't really know how the shower works so it was cold water...

They had good security after 11pm, if you don't have a key, the security man doesn't let you in. There are so many place to just chill. But only thing is you can connect to wifi only in basement. And there aren't many space. It's not packed when I went the area but wish they had wifi in social area.

It was good staying here... there are so man place to interact with other travelers! You will get a bit overwhelmed when you walk in because only wifi connection you can get is in the lobby. There's no kitchen but you can get breakfast if you pay 3.80 euro--which defi worth it usually it costs 3 euro for sandwich and 2 euro for breakfast if you get it outside. I wish I stayed there longer.

Everything was great but the location was a problem... I walked from main station and took me half an hour. On the way back, receptionist suggested to take a bus...i wish they've told me that before... and it wasn't a problem but it is youth hostel but there were so many adult people...but other than those, breakfast was included and you can walk to World Heritage Site in few minutes :)

I really loved staying this hostel. I was a bit hard to meet other guests since there wasn't social area but the location is great right next to the grand place and room was so clean and new! Even this place suits for family group. You just need to check in at different hostel but if you are coming from North station it's on the way to the city center.

defi great location but i guess you will get what you paid, compared to other hostels in Amsterdam. no social place unless you start talking ppl in the room... if you are staying one night probably not so bad but if you wanna stay longer... search other hostels

YHA London Earls Court, London, England
5.4
24th Dec 2012

I had this kind of rating maybe because I stayed nicer hostel before I came there. I think price was high because it was in London, but could have been better or same level as my expectation. Also this was the first time using YHA so if most of them are similar most of categories would be rated average. Location was really great, just few minutes away from earls court underground! What I didn't like the most was internet access. I've stayed at least 5 hostels in UK but all had free wifi.

staff was really friendly but the location of the hostel was bit confusing when i was following the direction. if you decided to stay there, you should have map. overall it was good place to stay!

Thank you for the review, we hope that when you were given your security pass on your arrival, the small map of the city centre on the back side made it easier for you with navigating yourself :)
