It doesn't look to impressive from the outside but the rooms are comfortable, cute, and the wifi works. Its a fun old building walking distance to food and sights! Front desk staff was very helpful with maps and ideas.


Charlie Rockets

Bruges, Belgium

The location is great with walking distance to everything. The staff were both unfriendly and unhelpful. We had a guy in our room get his money and tablet stollen because they don't have a very good security system. It was the cheapest place in town so we couldn't expect much....you get what you pay for.


HI De Draecke Gent

Gent, Belgium
89%

We had a very spacious, clean private room. The location is great....walking distance to most sites but tucked away so there's not too much noise. Staff were helpful and nice. The breakfast is really good and included so that was a big bonus for us! Wifi didn't work too great unfortunately.


Hostel Grand Place

Brussels, Belgium
80%

When you show up at the listed address you should know that there is a different name outside. You go in and they check you in and you have to walk another 15-20 minutes to the actual hostel you stay at. The location of where you actually stay is smaller and there is no around-the-clock staff. The wifi works great! The rooms, kitchen, and bathrooms are all clean and the common room is small but comfortable. It looks super sketchy from the outside but is in a great spot by the Grand Place


Luxembourg City Hostel

Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
97%

Very clean, secure, comfortable place to stay with plenty of well working amenities. The internet gets really slow at night when everybody is on it though. Location is walking distance from a lot of things and quietly tucked away. He had trouble finding it at first because the directions aren't totally clear on which bus stop to get off at. We enjoyed our stay here very much.


BaseCamp Bonn

Bonn, Germany
97%

The staff go above and beyond to be helpful which we really appreciated. Be careful when booking because we thought we booked a camper when we booked a bed in the sleeper train. He explains whats what in the info section but if you aren't paying attention you'll mess up! Its a really unique and fun experience staying here and we had a great time. Outside of town but close to the metro stop. Highly recommend this place!


The 4You Hostel Munich

Munich, Germany

The location is perfect: close to the train station but walking distance to sites. The rooms are crowded but comfortable. The in-room lockers are actually cages under the bed but they work alright. The wifi is terrible at night! Breakfast is incredible and make the whole stay worth it.


City Hostel N├╝rnberg

Nuremberg, Germany

Decent average hostel. The bathrooms are a little small but they were fairly clean. Kitchen smelled pretty weird so we didn't use it. Good location close to the train station and within walking distance to the town center. Decent place to stay overall.


Euro Hostel Plzen

Plzen, Czech Republic
63%

The pictures are slightly deceiving if you stay in the hostel area of this place. They take you to a different building which has a couple dorm rooms in it which is totally separate from the rest of the hotel/hostel. It was a bit weird and outdated. However, it was clean and the bathroom facilities worked fine. Its within walking distance to the town center though which was nice. Probably wouldn't stay here next time.


Hostel Orange

Prague, Czech Republic
89%

Nice hostel in a great location. The rooms are really small but comfortable with good views. They have good lockers in the room. Wifi doesn't work well at all in the rooms and you have to use the common room which gets loud and crowded. Good place to stay though and we would stay there again.


Patio Hostel

Bratislava, Slovakia
74%

This place was in a good location close to the town center. The staff were not exceptional but did their job alright. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The wifi didn't work very well in the rooms and we had to use the house computers which weren't always available. The patio is very nice but all the noise carries at night so close the windows! Good place to stay but more for young party types rather than people who want some quiet.


Ravin Hostel

Budapest, Hungary
77%

We checked in early in the morning and the hostel was empty but the guy running it gave us kind of a hard time about checking in for some reason. Not many bathroom facilities but they are clean and the hot water is good. Good wifi in the rooms. Limited common area. We were here for 3 nights and it was decent for the cost.


Pension Zanzi

Sibiu, Romania
94%

We loved this charming pension. The rooms are very clean, spacious, charming, and comfortable. The wifi is excellent in the rooms and the showers are nice and hot. :) Its literally two blocks away from the train station and two blocks away from the sights so its the perfect location with excellent value for your money. Its very quiet (which is what we like) and would definitely stay here again!


Rolling Stone Hostel

Brasov, Romania
77%

This was a good hostel but we had some frustrations. Our bed was SUPER squeaky, kinda uncomfortable, and we had lots of flies in our room. The breakfast really needs to be improved because its basically bread and jam which was really disappointing. The staff was really helpful with recommendations and directions but sometimes we had trouble locating them. Overall decent stay.


The Midland Hostel

Bucharest, Romania

We had the downstairs room and had to go upstairs to use the bathroom, which seemed a bit silly. The location is good if you are OK with a little bit of walking. The staff are really nice, helpful, and always available. We did enjoy our stay here and would stay again!

Really nice, clean rooms with cute little balconies overlooking the street. The breakfast kit in the morning is cheap and very delicious. The owner is really nice and very helpful with things to do in the surrounding area. He even loaned us out some personal topo maps to go hiking with! We would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for a couple nights and it wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. The locations is realllly close to the acropolis and the metro, so thats awesome. The name "Home Travelers" isn't on the sign out front so we went inside to ask if this was the same place. We spent like 10 min talking to them till they realized we booked on hostelworld and found our reservation. It was alright overall.


Stavros Villas

Santorini, Greece

Stavros and his family were so wonderful and made us feel right at home!!! It was so nice to be picked up and dropped off at the ferry for free :) The breakfast was very good but its not included, although the price is fair :) The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We had a great time here and would stay here again in a heartbeat.


Hotel Parthenon City

Rhodes, Greece
97%

This is a great place to stay and we had a nice time here! We were pleasantly surprised to find a free bottle of complimentary wine awaiting us upon arrival!!! It was initially hard to locate so they need to improve their directions a bit, but once we knew where it was we had no problem getting to major sites in Rhodes Town. Very friendly and helpful staff!!!! The room was clean and spacious with a quality view. We would definitely stay here again!

We really enjoyed our stay here! The whole family is really nice and welcoming from the time you arrive to check out. We loved our very comfortable room and the outside patio is a nice place to relax. It is walking distance to most places in Marmaris but we did have trouble finding it initially. We were very happy staying here!


Vardar Family Pension

Selcuk, Turkey
97%

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is great and very close to the bus station. The breakfast is very good as well! We had a nice room complete with a beautiful little balcony that we really enjoyed. The family who runs the place is very nice but don't totally understand that hostelword.com takes 10% of the payment in advance. They spoke limited English so we had trouble communicating this. All around great place to stay and we would definitely stay there again!


Emre Cave House

Goreme, Turkey
97%

The owner of this hostel is such a nice guy. He was really helpful and welcoming. He was constantly giving out free tea which was delicious. His personal tour of Cappadocia was excellent and he takes you to places away from the super crowded touristy areas for a lower price. Definitely take it! Breakfast is cheap and well worth it. There are nice views from the balcony over the town. Wifi works great in the rooms. Only drawback was that our room was really cold, but they do give extra blankets.


74%

The staff are very nice and helpful with planning your day. They make you feel very welcome when you arrive. One of the showers was under repair which really limited the facilities. Our dorm room had a sliding screen that didn't close all the way so we could hear everything going on out on the terrace. People also kept cutting through our room and treated it like a hallway...that was a bit frustrating. We enjoyed our stay but note that its a loud young party-like atmosphere..


Akkogate Guest Hostel

Akko, Israel
91%

We had a very nice stay here for one night. The breakfast in the morning is really good and fairly priced. The owner didn't seem to understand that Hostelworld.com takes 10% of online pay....so we had an interesting debate sorting it out....but we sorted it out eventually :) The rooms and bathrooms were very clean with lots of extra blankets for the cold. All dorm beds had outlets which was great. We would stay here again.


Aviv Hostel

Tiberias, Israel
91%

The owner is a really nice helpful guy and he even gave us a lift to Nazareth at a fair price. The rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable. Good coffee and tea which are both free! We weren't here long but enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.


Citadel Youth Hostel

Jerusalem, Israel
66%

I felt the bathrooms were small and dirty seeing how only a couple bathrooms served a lot of people. We were really annoyed that we booked a 7-bed mixed dorm and there were actually 8 beds crammed into this tiny room leaving no place to put your stuff. When we let the staff know this they didn't care and did nothing to help us. Location is great in the old city and the price affordable comparably speaking. I would stay somewhere else next time and suck up the extra money.


Saba'a Hotel

Really liked this hotel, especially its reasonable price compared to other places in the area. Breakfast was great and the room was very clean and comfortable. The staff are very helpful, welcoming, and nice. Sack lunches to take into the park are a great idea and were very delicious. Rooftop terrace is awesome. We really enjoyed this place and absolutely would stay here again!


Queen Ayola Hotel

Madaba, Jordan

Very nice staff who is very helpful and hospitable. The breakfast is great and the rest of their restaurant is good and fairly priced. I felt that they definitely put us as customers first and we greatly appreciated that. The room was quaint and comfortable. The bathroom is quite small but served its purpose. We did enjoy our stay here very much and would stay here again in the future.


Freedom Hostel

Cairo, Egypt

We really liked this hostel! The staff are very friendly and nice. We weren't sure if we were in the right place at first because its on the top floor of a building. The entryway is really nice and the welcome tea is fabulous. The desk guys are helpful with recommendations and have nice maps that are great. Its very close the the museum as well! Our room was massive and the bathrooms were very clean with hot water. Definitely recommend it.


Oasis Hotel Luxor

Luxor, Egypt
94%

The people who run this place, especially Mohammad, are really nice. The rooftop terrace is fabulous and they let us hang out there all afternoon/evening while we waited for our night train. We REALLY appreciated that. Breakfast is really good and filling. Bed was comfortable and clean, but the bathroom needed to be cleaned a bit more. We arrived at 0400 and woke up the staff who were SUPER nice and let us check in anyways. We would absolutely recommend this place!


Hoan Kiem Grand Hotel

The lady at the front desk wasn't happy with us when we checked in and had already booked our tour to Halong Bay. However, she was very helpful with calling our cabs and laundry services. We had to check in at 0430 and they were nice enough to take care of it for us...even though we woke up the staff to get in :/ The beds are a bit hard but the room was comfortable. We stayed there two different times and had great rooms both times. We would recommend this place.

Valentine Hotel

Lovely hotel/hostel in great location that is walking distance to local food and tourist food. If you are up for a bit of a walk you can get to most tourist sites. We enjoy walking so it was great for us! The staff are really helpful and even give out free tea at random....if you happen to be sitting in the lobby that is. The internet worked great, the air con worked great, and the hotel has lovely views from upstairs walkways. We were very happy with this hotel/hostel.


Saigon Youth Hostel

Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Tiny little rooms for the standard twin. You can barely fit your luggage, but its alright if you have a sense of humor. Hot water works and the air conditioning was perfect in our room. Luggage storage wasn't locked up, its just is in the kitchen and open to people walking through. The gal at the front desk spoke very minimal english but tried sooooooo hard to help us out...we would recommend this hostel though.


Velkommen Backpackers

Good location close to lots of delicious places to eat and close to the river. The room was pretty basic but the air conditioning didn't work and we were REALLY hot that night. The fan worked but it just wasn't enough. Nice staff, basic hostel. Internet only works in the lobby area but at least its free! I would stay there again.


Here Be Dragons

Very clean and friendly staff who helped us arrange our bus tickets to Phom Penh. The welcome beer was an absolutely fabulous surprise. The room was a bit hot at night cause we only had a fan. However, it was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely recommend this hostel.

Loved this hostel. If you want to be right on the main action, then don't book here....but we liked being off the main road because there were cheaper restaurants nearby and it was quiet at night. Its really hard to find if you are walking, so try to arrange the pick-up with the hostel. Very nice, clean room with good air conditioning!!! Only improvement: better directions and wifi was hard to get working a couple times

Very nice hostel with good facilities, free movie rentals with deposit, and very clean dorms/bathrooms. Was very happy with our choice! Very close to train station which was good for our early morning check out to the train. A bit of a walk to other major sites. Huge lockers in the room are great and every bed has a light and plugs!!! We were very happy with our choice.


Koh Tao Backpackers Hostel

Koh Tao, Thailand

By Thailand standards, I thought this was a really good hostel. Our room was clean and the air conditioning was fantastic. The toilets were super clean which is apparently hard to find in Thailand. The staff were nice and didn't mind being woken up at all hours of the day and night to help us out. Great location close to water. It was the cheapest place we could find and was good for the value.


1770 Beachside Backpacker

Agnes Water - Town of 1770, Australia
86%

We were in one of the larger dorms for this hostel and there were a lot of people with only one shower, so that got frustrating. It was clean and had a fun atmosphere. The "breakfast" is basically left over bread, butter, jam, and something pretending to be cereal and milk. The other frustrating thing was that there is a tour operator who either is part of the hostel or runs his business through the hostel but he was constantly asking people to move to accommodate him. It got kind of annoying.


Melaluka Apartments

Noosa, Australia

These really are like apartments! We had a very spacious, clean room when we stayed here and only had to share the building with two other people. The kitchen and bathroom were both clean. If you are looking for a party hostel this is not it, but it was very comfortable, relaxing, and we had an excellent time here.


Elephant Backpacker Sydney

Sydney, Australia
77%

This hostel is very close to the downtown area and some cool bars up the street. It was a bit dirty and the building interior definitely needed some work. I felt like it was dirty with trash lying around in the hallways and such. No internet access at all was a big downfall and the best they could do was recommend going to the library, a good 10-15 min walk.


Exford Hotel

Melbourne, Australia
74%

Well, this hostel (not hotel) has a great location close to food, shopping, sights, etc. The bar staff is the hostel staff so sometimes it can be hard to get help. The showers/toilets were tiny and dirty. Our room was REALLYYYYYY hot and a fan would have been much appreciated. The staff was hit or miss with helpfulness. The guy who checked us in in the morning was really nice and helpful, but we tried to get help that night and the bar staff was useless. It was affordable though for Australia.


Airport Skyway Lodge

We really liked this hostel! The manager is very very nice and is very timely with airport transfers. The hostel is PERFECT if you have an early morning flight, which was the case for us. The internet connection was really good and they had tea, coffee, etc. in a very clean and well-functioning kitchen. Our private room was enormous and had a spacious clean bathroom attached. By hostel standards, this was a great option for us.

Loved this hostel! Loved that they serve a chocolate pudding dessert that is absolutely delicious every night! Love that all the beds have shelves, lights, and are very comfortable. The bathrooms were clean, the rooms were clean, and the staff was incredibly nice and helpful. They have a very nice kitchen with plenty of working utensils and coffee/tea available in the morning. It is walking distance from the ferry if you are willing to walk a few blocks. This is one of my favorite hostels.


Paradiso Backpackers

Nelson, New Zealand

Great hostel with a great vibe! They have a neat pool area, jacuzzi, ping pong, volleyball, etc. They also have two big decent sized kitchens which helps with the large number of people going in and out. Staff are helpful and nice. Free internet and Free breakfast made this place a real gem. We had a great time here and would definitely stay here again if we ever pass through Nelson.

I thought this hostel was very dirty. There was trash everywhere, the showers were gross, and my bed was broken. The location is good in terms that it is right down town, however it is SURROUNDED by strip bars....when we came in late that night it seemed pretty sketchy. The atmosphere was great if you are a young kid who wants to party but that wasn't necessarily us. They have a lot of facilities but overall this was not my favorite hostel at all.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there, thank you very much for your feedback. We are afraid to hear that you got the impression the hostel is dirty, We are operating 24/7 and so does our housekeeping team. The common areas like kitchen and bathrooms get cleaned numerous times a day and with guests using them all day/night we always try and stay on top of it. We are surrounded by a lot of bars and night clubs and there are 2 strip bars on our strip but not right next to us. We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels. Thanks Nomads Auckland Management

The location was beautiful! You can walk to different beaches but some of the best snorkeling is in their backyard. The staff are very nice and helpful with bookings and such. There isn't much in terms of security when it comes to the dorm rooms, but you can always lock things up with the manager during open hours. The showers were a little dirty but for the value of the hostel this place can't be beat. Had a great time!


Pension Te Miti

So this is going to be a mixed review. Overall the hostel is great, the owners are extremely nice and friendly, it's in a pretty good location for snorkeling and beaches, and it was clean with a nice layout and view. The only real problem I had is that 6 people were stolen from in a matter of a day and a half, and their stuff was locked up in their private rooms. It took a while for the owners to resolve the issue and actually question their staff, where magically the money turned up.
