BEST HOSTEL IN THE WORLD. You might seriously never leave if you visit here....came for 4 nights, stayed 20. Then came back 3 months later for another two weeks. This place is truly special. It has the best staff you will meet at any hostel and you WILL have a good time not matter who you are!

A nice hostel....a bit boring as there is not a great common room for everyone to hang out in. There is a well equipped kitchen and a lovely garden. The hostel is clean and well run. The prices are also very cheap compared to other places of similar great quality.

The room itself was very good. It was clean with a comfortable bed. The shared bathroom smelled like sulfur however and the kitchen was constantly left dirty by the one employee who was living at the hostel. Upon arrival we were also informed that the wifi `sometimes goes out´. It never worked in three nights...For the price it was a decent place to sleep but had no character.

A very nice place to stay. Plenty of room in a nice lounge, rooftop terrace and kitchen. Everything was clean and the showers were always hot. The location is fantastic near city centre as well as within walking distance to the Grottos and many other beaches. I will stay here again when I come back !

When I arrived I found a badly handwritten map on the door to a bar nearby where reception was. When we arrived here we had to wait over an hour becuase our room was not ready yet even though it was 11 PM. The hostel did not appear like the pictures online. It was under construction and had no wifi or kitchen. During our stay we had both cash and electronics dissapear. The hostel seemed to be deserted and there was no staff to offer any assistance of any kind. STAY AWAY.

This was a great place to stay for a few quiet nights. The employees were very friendly and helpful. This is not a party hostel but is perfect for getting rest in a clean hostel with a nice kitchen. The walls are thin and can make sleeping in a bit difficult. Overall a good spot fairly close to Puerto del Sol and other major areas.

Nice hostel with a good common room. The WiFi did not reach the rooms however and a lack of kitchen was a bit difficult. Overall this was an alright place to stay with a great location, very close to most of central Madrid. Staff was friendly although not all spoke great English.

Absolutely adorable bed and breakfast. I stayed here with my girlfriend and we had an excellent weekend. The laundry is cheap and the staff is very kind. The rooftop terrace is perfect for reading and lounging in the sun. I highly recommend staying here !! Private rooms were very affordable as well.

Great professional hostel. The showers were a bit like a locker room (private though). Everything was clean and the common area is beautiful. The staff was friendly an helpful even when very busy with large amounts of guests. The location is fantastic. Close to the beach, las rambles, night life and more. This also makes the hostel easy to find!

Thank you for rating our hostel! Good that our lovely staff had time and energy to help you even when busy and we are very happy to hear you liked our brand-new building in the very center of Barcelona! We hope to see you again!

The staff was rude to not just my party but several others who were trying to check in and out. This occurs several times. The "baggage room" was just piled up bags that blocked the hallway. The rooms were very tiny and the top bunks were difficult to sleep on due to the encroaching slanted ceilings. Would not recommend this place to friends.

No good common area made this hostel just a place to sleep, not a place to spend tome relaxing. The staff was Helpful but not overly so. The breakfast is decent and the prices are reasonable for private rooms. Good location in musuemplein (little bit of a walk back from nightlife). Easy access to the 5 tram is extremely helpful.

Helpful staff who let me check out late when I had my timezones mixed up. The hostel is clean and professional. More of a place to stay than a place to hang out. Has a hotel feel to it that is not conducive to meeting other travelers. Great value especially for private rooms.

Very clean professional hostel. They provide a nice.place to stay with a good.common area but there is no good travelling vibe. Lot of teenagers there and everyone stuck to their groups. Not a Party hostel and not close to anything of interest in the city. A decent place to stay for a night on a budget.

This was a great place to stay for a night passing through the city. It is easily accessible from the main train station and has decent nightlife around it. Everything was clean and the staff was very helpful with any requests or questions. For the price this hostel can't be beat in Munich.

The hostel is difficult to find, the street is more of an alley which has no name. During on day the power went out and no on had electricity(refrigerator or lights). Th showers were either scorching hot or cold and the bathrooms always smelled strongly of sulfur. The double private had a very comfortable bed and the lounge upstairs was fantastic!! Great views and atmosphere. The location was between the blue mosque and taksim but not incredibly close to either.

This hostel has a great location, at the end of the major shopping /nightlife streets very close to the famous Galata bridge which connects to the area with many famous mosques and tourist attractions.. The upstairs lounge has great views and the kitchen is spacious. Breakfast is simple but filling and the laundry service is cheap! Great place to stay overall with the downsides being one bathroom per floor and finicky showers.

This hostel was under construction when I showed up. I had not been notified and the entrances and top floor were destroyed with construction equipment and debit everywhere.. the stands was very kind however and my actual room was decently clean and had a hot shower. For the price, when not under construction this is probably a seven place to stay but does not have much character.

We finish the construction. Now our hostel have also a character :)

This was a unique hostel with a great building. One of the showers in the large dorm had no water pressure. Other than that I had zero complaints. It was an excellent atmosphere with a great staff ! Everyone was very helpful and friendly even when I arrived at 6 AM instead of my planned 3 PM. PM . The location is also excellent making it easy to explore the city.

Thank you, we appreciate your honest comment. As for the showers, we apologize for the inconvenience. Our maintenance staff already checked the situation. On behalf of the whole HC staff, thank you!

This was a good,safe,clean place to stay. It had a decent breakfast included and a slightly outdated / bare bones common area to hang out in at night. The reception employees were decent (not great) but did let us stay up in the common areas past the posted hours. Overall a good hostel but was not a great place to do much besides sleep and keep your things. If you want a party hostel, this is not your place. They also charge me an extra Euro for "foreigner city tax" upon arrival.

The second floor smelled suspiciously like cat urine and as there was always a cat sleeping at the top of the stairs on the second floor, I believe my suspicions are true. The employees were helpful although some were much more friendly than others. There was not a good common area for guests to mingle at but there was a decent kitchen. The hostel has a good location for those interested in museums but it was a hefty walk from most nightlife. In winter the walk can be unpleasant.

This was a brand new hostel with nearly everything in tip top shape and always kept clean. There was a nice little kitchen and very comfortable beds. The only downside was that it was very boring. It had no character and was just a room to sleep in. It offered no activities or ways to meet other travelers. If you want just a private room to stay in for the weekend this place is great for the price.

This hostel is amazing. The best I have ever stayed at. The staff will become your friends in a matter of hours. The bar inside is always fantastic and the professionally cooked dinners are delicious. The common room and patio make it very easy to meet other travelers. The atmosphere here is alive and friendly. I can't recommend this hostel highly enough. If you want a great time in Lisbon, stay here.

A good place to stay for a few nights. The workers were generally very pleasant and helpful. The hostel did lack a common area for guests to meet or hang out in and there is also no kitchen. The bathrooms were clean as were the beds. Overall a nice happy place but lacking several key aspects to make it a great hostel. The location was decent but required a bit of walking or use of the metro to get to most of the major nightlife or tourist attractions.
