Great holiday house. We had the whole house to ourselves. Rooms were huge, great kitchen. Close to 2nd entrance to park (the better way to go I think). Beautiful setting, highly recommended , especially for those with a car.

Sime Simunic Apartment

Zadar, Croatia

Great for those with a car as it's not in the main town, a little difficult to find but host came to pick us up from grocery store. Hot was inttermittent, and Wifi was a little weak. Called host to rectify issues with lack of cleaning equipment for kitchen. She came within 10mins. Good service and was very apologetic. Lovely apartment just needs a few little refinements. Recommended for those with a car.

Very close to the old town and bus terminal. Fridge in kitchen was tiny, but most people don't cook. Parking is a challenge but attainable in a paid carpark if the street is full. Staff, helpful and friendly. Recommended especially for those on public transport/bus

Great place and very good value. Location only suited to those with a car, but I believe they will pick you up from the ferry/port. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. They even shared schnaps/Grappa with us. We had the whole apartment to ourselves. Room a little small if you have big luggage. Highly recommended.

Dear Terry Thank you for your kind review. We are located only 10 minutes walk from town centre, people here don't use cars often as it is not too far to walk anywhere in Supetar. Promenade and beaches are close by.We offer free of charge pick up from the ferry port as written of the web, you only need to inform us before your arrival. We booked a large Private Suite free upgrade for your stay in May. Our individual rooms are spacious and there is enough space for luggage. Best regards

CroParadise has about 7 apartments. We stayed in CroParadise Light Blue not Green. Great location, but difficult to find. The main office is at Croparadise Blue. Parking can be a challenge. Beds may not be supportive enough for some. Kitchen lacked pots/pans/friying pans. Staff wer friendly and very helpful. Ienjoyed the stay.

Stella Jadre Apartments

Dubrovnik, Croatia
86%

Lovely place run by a lady that shows a personal interest in her customers. All Croatians I've met have been incredibly helpful. GReat location just outside the wall and also convenient on the bus lines. The only minor problem was that some of th signage gets stolen by the oppersition. We got the bigger appartment for the same price of the small as it was not quite peak season. Highly recommended as it was a great location and a helpful hostess.

Dentro la Valle dei Templi

Agrigento, Italy
89%

The owner trys to accomodate every need, even thought she doesn't speak English well. This is a room in the ladies house and you effectively are staying in a typical Italian flat. It's kept immaculately clean. I was left to let myself out of the house when I wanted to checkout. as she works else where during the day. This is good for independant travellers only. The address isn't exactly correct and needs to be corrected in Hostelworld. Very close to the Valley of the Temples


LoLHostel Siracusa

Syracuse, Italy
94%

The staff were ever so helpful and certainly went beyond that required to assist me. Had the private room and it was basically like a hotel. Only suggestion for the rooms is to add a soap/shampoo holder inthe shower and possibly a desk and chair into the private rooms. They even helped me book the hotel in town as they were full the 2nd night that I wanted to stay. Highly recommended. Well done. Thanks very much

Staff were incredibly helpful, especially Michael as he helped me workout some issues with my future travel plans. Pity I didn't have more time to spend here. Highly recommended, slightly out of the tourist area but that's not a bad thing as it makes it cheaper and it's also one of the few places with a true "Single" room. For a single traveller, this is fantastic value. Thanks very much again for the fantastic service.

Otello Deluxe Hostel

Pompei, Italy

One of the owners speaks great English and was very hospitable. Highly recommended as it's so central to town. This following is not a criticism but just a statement of fact. Note that most rooms do not have out ward looking windows. So if you want sunlight this is possibly nothe place for you. There was an issue with Wifi in the rooms (worked in the dining room and common areas), and the owner is addressing this. One of the Wifi points wasn't working properly. highly recommended. Thanks

Good value and in a very good location. The staff were very helpful in assisting with all thins to do with travel. The cleaning lady even did my laundry for me when I asked if there were facilities. This is not standard service. Thanks very much to all of you for a great time and also a safe one.

Lovely place within the old city walls. I had a room in what would basically be an apparment/home of a local resident. It had a shared kitchen, lounge and bathroom. Very homely atmosphere as it's set up as a home rather than a hostel. Highley recommended. Note that the manager doesn't live on site so there is no extended availability/access to the manager. For the independant traveller this is perfect.

A Vigna Du Raffa

Cinque Terre, Italy

A great place for single travellers as there are 2 single rooms. Wifi only works on the patio (and the apartment) but the Diego will address this soon. Super clean room and bathroom. The room is cosy but perfect, if all you want is a place to crash. It's a very well designed use of space. As little damp but with the dehumidifier it's fine. Excellent value and highly recommended Diego, who runs this place is very helpful, hospitable and friendly. He even bought me breakfast/coffee twice. :) :)

Donato, was a great host and very helpful. The room was as described and clean. 2 shared toilets did not have toilet seats. The showers could do with a more frequent clean (Shower screens but were servicable). The toilet seats were the glaring issues. I'd stay again. Very central.

@Hua Lamphong

Bangkok, Thailand
94%

Fantastic location, right next to the MTR & train station. Better than Khaosan Rd area as it's so close to public transport. Great staff, more like a hotel. Even front rooms facing main St are double glazed so the noise level is low. All areas of Bangkok are easily accessible from here. Tours offered by the hostel are OK, but effectively only paying for the transport., NOT fully qualified guide. The optional boat ride at the floating market isn't worth 150 Bhat as it's a souvenier shopping ride

Excellent, location and staff. Great room. Only down fall is the very intermittent WiFi/internet. Mostly the Wifi drops out. nternet link may be OK but Wifi isn't. It can drop out 20+ times in 30mins???? If you need fast/reliable internet you may need to go to a cafe. Very close to sites

Khaosan Tokyo Samurai

This is the best value of the Khosan's for a single traveller that wants a single room. Great staff and location is near enough to the subway. In a nice quiet area. If you want to party and be in the middle of it then this is not the place for you. Loved the rooms , kitchen and bathrooms. Staff were great as in all of Japan...... The country where sevice is an art.....

Kato the host is a lovely lady. Despite the lack of English we managed to communicate. She makes it a homely place to stay and is genuinely caring. Provides maps and suggestions as to what to do. Only thing lacking is Internet. I've suggested that she may want to investigate providing this access. Highly recommended Very clean. Spanish bar close by has great neighborhood feel, a must go, Spent 2 nights there!!!

Che Pampas Hostel

Rosario, Argentina
93%

The staff (Julianna & Debi) were very friendly and helpful. I can highly recommend staying here. It´s a clean and friendly hostel. It was quiet when I was there. Rosario is best seen on a bicycle as it´s pretty big. There is not longer a private double with shared bathroom. This option has to be removed from hostel world. For the price of the private room I believe towels should be included as in other similar hostels.

Max, You and your staff are just fantastic!!! You made my stay throughly enjoyable and relaxing. I can highly recommend this hostel as it´s well located, all staff speak great English and are alway helpful, very clean. It´s not a ¨Party¨ hostel but a great place to chill out. It´s like being at home with a warm atmosphere. Keep up the great work guys and gals. Cheers & Thanks Terry

Staff extremely helpful. Special note to Nicholas, Lola, Humberio & Renato Had gr8t room this time which wasn´t facing the main St. I-net was flaky this wk as provider had issues, VOIP phone never worked! Great for meeting others esp for a big hostel. Many options for activities each evening. Highly recommended for someone coming into Buenos Aries for the 1st time as it´s central to everything.


Anahi

Puerto Iguazu, Argentina

A good hostel for those who don't want the party at the hostel. Great to relax and have a comfy place that's central to down town where everything is. Very convenient. The staff are excellent and will do anything to help you if possible. I had a single booking which gave me a full room which could sleep a family of 4 (doule bunk and double bed, kitchenette and ensuite)!!! Floors in rooms are swept but could do with a mop, otherwise all's great. Highly recomended.

The staff has been exceptional in assisting with anything one needs, Lewis is especially helpful. Can highly recommend this hostel. It maybe a little tight in peak season but at this time of the year it´s fantastic. With 15-25 people staying, it´s very warm and friendly and access to bathrooms is not problem.

Hostel was OK but the hot water was poor in that in some rooms there was no pressure and could be burning hot (infact steaming out of the shower head ie the water had boiled, dangerous!!). Great location and staff are helpful though.
