My biggest praise for this hostel is the staff. The lovely women who checked me in was brilliant, so helpful and sweet. The hostel itself is alright. The dorms are very crowded with no storage space, which gets a bit annoying. It's also a bit of a walk from the city center, but at least it's an easy walk to follow on a map. I met some nice people here, and despite it seeming to not be set up for much socializing, it did have a reasonable social atmosphere in the kitchen and lounge.

Hello! Thanks for staying with us at The Hostel and for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay here with us. We are currently looking into changing our dorms and adding extra storage space, which will certainly help. We are only a 5 minute walk from Princes Street, the main street in Edinburgh, but we will certainly look into ways to explain the quickest routes to guests better. Please come back and see us soon :) The Hostel

This hostel has the nicest staff I've encountered in ages. The facilities aren't amazing, I will admit, but I really liked staying here. Good social atmosphere in the common area and close enough to things you'd want to do. The staff will make you feel so welcome and were incredibly helpful in giving advice on things to see and do.

Not terrible, but not anything to rave about. Horrible showers, the worst push button showers I've encountered in ages. Fairly good atmosphere in the kitchen area though, and I met some nice people here.

Only stayed here one night. The staff were rather rude, the wifi didn't work at all, and the rooms are facing a busy street so it's really loud at night. The location is really the only redeeming factor. If you just need a place to crash this will do, but it's not really a hostel, just a hotel that has some rooms turned into dorms, so no atmosphere at all.

Loved this hostel. It's in a great location and the staff were some of the most lovely hostel staff I've encountered in Europe. Nice outdoor common area and the kitchen is a good place to hang out. It's close to the lake and plenty of restaurants and pubs. Highly recommend :)

Really nice hostel. The rooms are super cool, and you get privacy with the curtains, almost giving you a 'room' for two within a big dorm room. The location is great, the staff were lovely, and the rooms are nice. Only sort-of downside is there's really no kitchen, but I can deal with that.

The terrace bar and hangout space is really great. No real complaints, but don't let them do your washing! Nothing of mine was ruined, but my stuff wasn't actually clean and it's way overpriced (clearly just an old machiene, not the staff's fault.) In contrast, the drink prices are really good, so hang out and have drinks on the terrace! Over all a cool place. Met some lovely people here and the staff are great.

Right on the water, which is great. It's super small and cute really. Nice kitchen area, good air con, and the beds are comfy. Biggest downside is the five flights of stairs to get up to it, haha. So be prepared for that!

For the price, it's a good hostel. Easy to get to on the tram from the bus station and easy to take the tram or walk into the city center. Not really any atmosphere to meet other travelers, which was a let down, but it didn't seem that busy when I was there. The kitchen is also really tiny and was fairly messy when I was there. The beds are comfy though, and there's good lockers in the rooms. Beware of noise from the street at night.

If you're looking for a cheap place to stay in Budapest this will suit. The staff were friendly and helpful, but the hostel itself had no social atmosphere at all (at least when I was there). It's also on a street that is quite noisy at night, so bear that in mind. Aside from the noise though, the beds are nice and there's plenty of space in the dorms.

I absolutely loved this hostel. Great location, good hangout area, and the beds were actually really comfortable. It's in a perfect location, so close to the Charles Bridge, but not in the middle of the tourist madness. The staff were super friendly and helpful as well. Definitely would recommend this place, a great social hostel without being a party hostel.

It's in a great location, right in the middle of everything. Close to good pubs and restaurants as well. The price is reasonable of true location and the rooms are quite nice with good sized lockers. Not much atmosphere in the hostel, but you've got plenty to do right outside of it anyways.

Generally had a good time here. The rooms aren't the cleanest, but for me that's not a huge deal. It can be a bit loud, as there is a ton of partying around. But if you're looking to meet people, the bar they've got set up in the basement is going well and myself and my travel companion had a great time hanging out down there. It's quitei social, just with everything around. The staff were really lovely too, no complaints there :)

This place was pretty nice and I have no real complaints about the facilities or anything. However, we booked a six bed dorm and ended up in what was basically a family hotel room with two other people. It was fine, and the four of us had a good laugh about it, but it was a very strange set-up.

This hostel isn't really anything exciting, but it's in a great location. We had booked a six bed dorm and ended up in a tiny room with one bunk bed. It was fine, as in Amsterdam you're not generally looking to hang out in the hostel too much anyways. It's expensive, but for the location, it's really a pretty good bargain.

Pretty cool hostel over all. The staff were really nice and the facilities were decent. I liked that there was good space to hang out at the bar at night, but it wasn't a party hostel. Good place to chill. Plus super easy to get to, as it's right by a metro stop.

Flinders Backpackers, Melbourne, Australia

15th Jul 2015

The location can't be beat, truly. It's always great to be in the middle of the city. That aside though this hostel isn't a place I would stay long term. The room was really cold, with the window open when we first arrived (this was possibly for airing out, but still, it was freezing). The showers also were pretty spotty with hot water. Not great for Melbourne winter. Over all not a terrible place, but not the most comfortable.

View Property Reply

Dear Guest Thanks your for taking the time to leave a review. Even in the colder months on Melbourne we still need to let some fresh air into the rooms so thanks for understanding. Thanks for the heads up about the hot water, we will have it looked at on level 5. Happy Travels Flinders Staff

This hostel is a Right if you're looking for the cheapest option for Hong Kong. The location is good, really close to the MTR and in a cool place. The staff wasn't too helpful in general though, and it seemed really unorganized. Also a bit weird that half the rooms are in a totally different building then the reception area. Basically no atmosphere at all since we were there. Can't speak for staying in the main building part.

Absolutely fantastic hostel. Stayed here three nights and had a blast. Met some great people at the barbecue they had the first night I was there. The food's good, the staff is great and really chill. Great environment. Also has a good set up to book tours and basically anything you'd need right from the front desk. Over-all awesome place!

Enjoy Da Lat is such a great hostel. The staff are really cool and the owner even took us to a good local restaurant one night I was there. The beds are different, but embrace the odd set up. It's quite cool and you can get a good nights sleep in there. "Everybody enjoys Da Lat!"

It's a good hostel for a one night stop over in Shenzhen. Not a terribly social hostel, at least for a non-Chinese speaking person. But Ithe rooms are big and clean and the ac works well. Some of the bathrooms are nicer than others, but if you're a budget traveller I don't this will bother you.

Despite many people saying that this hostel is in poor condition (which I suppose it kind of is), I enjoyed it. If you're wanting a more quiet atmosphere this is a good hostel for sure. The staff seemed kind of unhelpful when we first got there and things wee confusing, but they were incredibly nice over all. A nice perk is that this hostel is cheaper than others, but still close to the more ''party oriented" hostels around the corner. Sleep here, go party at the others :)
