Be sure to add another 10-15 euro to the room price so you can buy yourself dinner. This hostel has no kitchen, no microwave, not even cutlery. They expect you to go into their bar and buy an overpriced dinner there each night. This hostel is in a terrible neighbourhood, the only reason its location rating is any good is because it is near a train line than gets you the hell out of their. Also, for some reason they don't trust that you have the ability to operate a shower.

An awesome hostel in a really nice neighbourhood in Berlin. The staff here are really helpful. Also, if you are a decent cook and are prepared to cook for 20 or so people (they pay) then they will give you a free night stay.

This "hostel" is clean and centrally located, but that is about all it has going for it. The hostel has no atmosphere whatsoever, has no organised nights out, the kitchen is underwhelming, the laundry service is overpriced, the common area is one couch and one table, the walls are bear. Seems to me that the management of this hostel has done everything possible to spend as little money as they can. I wouldn't recommend staying here for more that one night.

Mosquito Hostel, Krakow, Poland

I have never given a hostel 100% on hostelworld ever. This is easily the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It is clean, central, there is free breakfast & dinner, you can make lunch for yourself (also for free), the staff are nice, there are organised nights out, but there is no pressure if you are feeling lazy. This hostel, for me, is the measure of what other hostels should be like. If you go to Krakow and don't stay here you are craaazy.

this hostel is perfect if you are the kind of person who likes to party, but also who likes to actually go out and experience a city as well. it is the kind of place if you want to party you can, but if you don't, they aren't going to shove it down your throats. the guys who work at the hostel are all very helpful and you can tell that they genuinely like the city of Budapest, they aren't just being told to like it.

Amazing hostel, super clean, well located, the staff are amazing, and the owners are willing to share anything and everything they know not only about Cluj, but about Romanian and European culture in general. I would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Cluj.

Staff here are super friendly, eager to help out. We were there when the hostel was going through renovations so really couldn't say much about what it will look like in the future. However, based on the previous hostel I can't imagine it would be anything but amazing. Stay here if you are going to Bucharest!

We stayed here for 8 nights, 3 in a private room & 5 in a dorm so we got a pretty good feel for the place. Negatives: beds are uncomfortable, if you don't like dogs this place isn't for you because they have four the location is love-hate, it isn't great for walking anywhere but if you are willing to splurge on a quad bike it is great. the breakfast is the absolute minimum. Positives: super clean, staff are friendly, hostel has organised trips & yoga, has a well-maintained pool

Clean hostel in a nice area of York. Has a downstairs bar but other than that this place is basically just somewhere to crash.
