Galina's Flat, Moscow, Russia

14th Dec 2014

I arrived too early. At 5:30 in the morning. The owner, Galina, was so mad and she yelled at me. It was raining and otherwise, I would have stayed out. I couldn't figure out why she was so mad, and she treated me really bad during the whole day. Why?! Because she wanted to ask me for more money, because she opened the door for me. All she wanted was money for an ''early check in''. If not, she wanted me to leave the following day at 6 am (same time I had checked in the previous night). Terrible

Balalaika Hostel, Irkutsk, Russia

After 4 months travelling, I can say this was the best hostel I've stayed at. Why? Staff is awesome. Especially Olga and Maria Shalimova, they helped me so so much with everything. They gave me all the time and attention. They patiently showed me the maps and told me everything. Also, their English is perfect (hard to find sometimes in Russia). Hostel is clean, and the best thing: I got to use the facilities not only of my hostel, but also the hostel in the city (same chain). Awesome

Olga treated me really well. She took the time to write everything I needed. Helped me to buy a SIM card and lots of stuff for the cold. Thank you so much Olga for all your help and time

First of all I must say that it s a good hostel for the money. It is as cheap as dirty. Not well located (1 hour and a half walking from center or 20 minutes by bus). The hostel is not clean, and there was too many people on my room. I accepted that thinking that they would clean better and more often. Breakfast is ok. Staff is not polite, and they barely speak English. Their attitude towards customers is not friendly. Given all these things, I must say that it s ok for the cheap price

El Viajero Cartagena Hostel, Cartagena, Colombia

Este hostel es el mejor hostel que conozco en el mundo. Las razones: es amplio, muy limpio. El personal (Alexander y Ronald y Yoli especialmente) es muy amable y brindan mapas, informacion, precios y todo lo que sea necesario para viajar. Ademas tiene todo lo que necesita un hostel. Tiene lockers con clave de seguridad con lo cual uno no necesitas estar por todos lados con las llaves. Es mi segunda visita a Colombia, experimente otros hostels pero este es definitivamente superior

I think the location is the best. However, it s kind of old and a bit dirty. Also, there is not enough information, or at least not as much as one can find in a hostel. It s cheap, so I think the relation cost-benefit is good.
