Great location, in the middle of Toledo. We had troubles when checking in- there isn't always a receptionist and there isnt a doorbell, just a number to call which isn't very useful to most backpackers. We even emailed them our arrival time and there wasn't anyone there. You can enter the hostel from the cafe next door. The cafe is definitely worth a visit anyway with good, cheap food and drinks. No kitchen and no real common area makes it hard to meet people. Beds and bathroom are great.
Really close to the train station and easy access to the bus station. The staff are very helpful and give grey ideas about what to do. The beds are comfortable and there is an ok kitchen. If your here for. Quick stay and want to be close to transport and the middle of the city, this is the hostel for you
Great hostel. The boys running it really make your stay special. They are really helpful and friendly (and they cook awesome dinners). I would recommend booking and ensuite room as there is only one toilet for the use of people without ensuites. Apart from the lack of toilets, the facilities are great with a well equipped kitchen and nice roof top terrace. If I went back to seville I would definitely stay here again!
Very friendly hostel with great staff. It is a little far out from town (10-15 minute walk) but it's manageable. The atmosphere was pretty good but I imagine it's absolutely amazing in summer. There was a deck and pool but it was a bit cold to go out there. The kitchen was good and nice common areas. Worst part was the beds which were extremely uncomfortable and I'm pretty sure they are meant for children because I didn't fit on them! Would definitely stay here in summer
Such an amazing hostel. Fantastic staff, fantastic location, fantastic bedrooms and showers. You can't fault this hostel. If you go to Lisbon you should stay here! Such an enjoyable experience. Thank you!
Location is really good, right next to Hyde park. The staff are friendly and helpful and always around which is good. Marked down on cleanliness because the plumbing broke while we were there and our room smelt to sewage. I think we should have all been moved out of the room because of the smell but someone just came and sprayed airfreshener. Also the smoke alarms went off at 2am and again at 3. This seemed to be a regular occurrence and should probably be fixed
Nice relaxed hostel. It's attached to pub which is nice and is pretty much right on the beach. Staff are friendly and the rooms were comfortable. The kitchen is also well equipped.
ok dorms, but no locks to any doors. the female bathrooms were terrible and totally un-private. the door separating the female toilets from the main hallway was tied open, which made using the bathrooms very uncomfortable as there was no privacy. i have no idea why they did this. the 'kitchen' was very unclean and there was only a microwave. the common room was just the owners and their family which was strange. this would be a fine hostel for guys but would not recommend for girls.
lovely hostel with a great kitchen and nice bathrooms. the staff were helpful and gave us lots of ideas of what to see. it was really nice that they had a double bed in the dorm room so that me and my partner could share a bed. if your travelling as a couple i would recommend emailing them to see if they can put you in a double. there was a common room but no atmosphere. i would stay here again.
staff at this hostel were really nice and friendly. they have a well equipped kitchen and free herbs and spices which was a nice touch. the rooms were quite big and there was a nice common room. overall a nice place to stay
the security was quite bad and we felt uncomfortable leaving our things in the room. on arriving back to our shared dorm room, there were 2 old men in our room and they got angry at us for being in there room. reception clearly didnt tell them it was a dorm. it was a very uncomfortable experience. after they left we had the room to ourselves until another man came in at 2am and turned on the lights and made a huge noise. there were no locks on the bathroom door which meant there was no privacy
well located hostel, really close to the main part of town and all the bars. the only time we actually talked to any of the staff was on check in, when they were very rude and impersonal. there is a great kitchen but its almost impossible to find. there were lots of school kids running around which ruined any chance of a good atmosphere. it would have been almost impossible to meet people here because of the lack of atmosphere and huge size. the private rooms were good value
was an ok hostel, in a good location. there was a kitchen which was good, but the bathrooms were disgusting and there were no mirrors. also, there was no atmosphere, mainly because there were a whole lot of very young children running around the common area. the staff were good and did try to get going but it didnt happen. it wasnt a terrible place to stay but it certainly wasnt great.
absolutely fantastic hostel. best we have stayed at. the owners are really friendly and helpful, the night we stayed they got everyone free apple pie and ice cream. the location is great and the breakfast is the best of any hostel. we wished we could have stayed longer. thanks!!!
the best bit about this hostel was the kitchen. the rooms were pretty average and the pillows and mattresses were pretty terrible. the allocated beds would be good during high season but it seemed pretty stupid during low season- they put everyone on one side of a half empty dorm. it would have been nice to space people out. location was good and breakfast was fine.
good value accommodation for the middle of london. the kitchen was pretty well equipped and breakfast was ok. the showers in the room didnt feel very clean and were a bit mouldy. no bar meant the atmosphere was lacking but it was good because we could bring our own alcohol. I would stay here again.
Nice hostel but seriously lacked facilities. There were only 4 showers for the whole hostel and the kitchen was pretty average. It is undergoing repairs but it seems like these have been going for some time! The common area was nice and the rooms were fine. We were frustrated that the kitchen was locked up in the morning when we were leaving, which meant we had to leave food there. A sign to make people aware of this would have been helpful! Location was good, close to train station and town.
This hostel was pretty much perfect apart from the check in. 4pm check in is MUCH later than any other hostel I have ever stayed in. It was particularly frustrating because we later discovered that many of the rooms are ready significantly earlier (midday) but they still make you wait. The kitchen was good, bathrooms were clean and beds were the most comfortable I have stayed in. The location is great, I would stay here again
Interesting hostel to stay at because of the building. The location is good and the rooms are very clean. The breakfast was also good. There isn't a kitchen which is annoying and the atmosphere in the bar area is very strange. The staff were ok to us, but we overheard them being quite rude to other guests which made us feel very uncomfortable. Good place to stay for a couple of nits but I wouldn't stay much longer
We enjoyed our stay here. It's located right next to a beautiful park which was great. It's about a 15 minute walk out from the centre but it was a nice walk and a good way to see the city. The kitchen was well equipped and the breakfast was good. We stayed in a double bed in a dorm room which was good, but the beds are quite small! The atmosphere was pretty good in the bar and the staff were nice. I would stay here again
This is the worst hostel we have ever stayed in. It took us 5 separate visits to reception to check in. The staff had no idea what was going on. There was no hot water for showers Common area was full of tour groups so no atmosphere. The area was also covered in flies. The bathrooms were dirty and cleaners removed the floor towel which made it even more dirty. Security walked into our bedroom in the middle of the night and stood there for 5 minutes It's close to Oktoberfest but that's it
Great location and really helpful staff. A serious lack of showers and toilets are the main downfall of this hostel. The group dinner was good for meeting people. It is pretty hard to find the hostel, make sure you work it out before you get there- the instructions on hostel world are a bit confusing
good hostel in the middle of old town, which really is the best thing about this hostel. you are tight in the middle of all the bars and restaurants which is great but because of this the music is loud until 1am. we found it fine and just didn't expect to sleep until then, but it could be a problem. we got the transfer from albania which was useful, but very uncomfortable as there were 5 of us in a tiny ford focus. each room has a kitchen but there wasnt any common room.
nice hotel right along the beach. it was very close to the seaside promenade which was good for night time. the breakfast was fantastic and the wifi was the best we have encountered while travelling. as it is not a hostel there are no cooking facilities, but it was a shame that there wasn't even a kettle.
great place to stay. felt more like an amazing share house than a hostel. the staff were the best and friendliest i have encountered as they are fellow travellers and always keep to help make your stay even better. we arrived hours before check in time but were allowed to hang out and have the delicious breakfast pancakes anyway. the location is good, right near the beach with a great view from the balcony and close to mini mart. i would definitely recommend this place. it was fantastics.
This was a good hostel if you want to drink and party. The dinners were a great way to meet people. The rooms were pretty primitive, dark and smelly but you don't have to spend much time there so it's fine. The staff are amazing. Really friendly and helpful. Also the shuttle bus pick up was great.
Really good hostel close to the beach, shopping and old town. The staff are really friendly and the vibe is pretty good. The communal area was great to meet new people. They give you free pasta during happy hour which was great! While it does seem a little over priced I would stay there again. We had friends who changed this hostel after seeing how great it was. Don't do the pub crawl, it's a bit of a waste of money and drinks our are very expensive
We stayed during summer and it was ridiculously hot. There was a tiny fan for the whole dorm which was not helpful at all. It was difficult to sleep because it was so hot. Kitchen was ok but very small. The area seemed a bit dodgey but it was super convenient if your just passing through and want to be near the station
Great hostel in Lyon. The large dorms are actually broken up into separate areas so it doesn't feel too big. The owners are amazingly friendly and helpful. Kitchen and bathrooms were great and always clean. I would definitely return
Nice hotel though a long way from town. The hotel ran a shuttle bus from the bus station to the hotel during San Fermin which was good
More of a hotel than a hostel. We stayed here for 6 nights and it was great. A little noisy at night but it was fine. Would have been great to have so e sort of cooking facilities (even just a microwave and a kettle). The owner doesn't stay at the property so make sure you say in advance what time you will arrive so he can meet you there. This place could have benefitted from a sign in English explaining there is no reception as I had to run down stairs more than once to explain to other guests
Well located within walking distance of both the main train station and the main bus station. The kitchen was good and the bathroom was clean. We were in a 6 bed dorm but were the only people there which was nice. The major downside of this hostel was the lack of security. There were no locks on the dorm rooms and the lockers didnt work. A random guy came into our room (accidentally) in the middle of the night which wasn't great. This would be a great hostel if they put locks on the doors
We stayed here for 1 night and it was ok for that period of time but I wouldn't stay longer. There's no reception or staff on premed is so we had to wait around outside until luckily someone came by. There was a microwave but no cutlery or crockery. The room was very hot with no ventilation, you couldn't leave the window open because the street was very noisy. I wouldn't stay here again despite the good price
This place is AWESOME! Very friendly staff, very clean, great kitchen and fantastic atmosphere. We booked a private double bedroom which was amazing but we probably didnt need to given how good we saw the dorms were. We loved our week here. I would come back to Porto just to stay at this hostel again. It was the best I have stayed at and is better than most hotel. Thanks for such a great stay, we didnt want to leave
Me and my finance stayed at clink 78 as the first stop in our Europe trip. The proximity to kings cross was fantastic as it meant we could get everywhere very easily. We stayed in a 14 bed mixed dorm and it was fine. The beds were really close together and it did get pretty stuffy by the end of the night, but it wasn't unbearable. The breakfast in the morning was toast and cereal which was fine and the kitchen facilities. The worst thing was the showers and the lack of free Internet.
