If this were a yacht I'd name it "Show & Tell". Great hostels improve with tinkering and diy just like GP and the tree-house concept of space. Close to the Marion Transport Center, and Hillsborough Bd. definitely drop in soon for a slice of fun. And thanks, Keith for the Digiorno pizza slice.

Well I say this much. The most unusual experience I've encountered happened in the deluxe room. I mean I've staid in DC and EU when humping was audible but WWW went over the top with a guy humping the mattress until finally his phone shot off. LOL. A likable hostel but the cedar furniture, tho atmospheric, in the dark could be deadly. I mean it's heavy and cumbersome tho very much of the atmosphere. And Josh hadn't yet materialized. Clean tho not antiseptic. Thx. for the memories.

If this were a yacht, I'd name it "Four Stars". Great hostels with hospitality and few encombrements are unusual. Hostels with lockers, kitchens, location, breakfast, affordability and upholstery make a wanderer of me. Hurry in, it's the best.

I really liked this hostel -really. I pray mgmt. maintains Q4 well, a fabulous and beautiful oasis. If Q4 were a yacht I'd name it "Q4 to Manhattan".

Ashton House Hostel, Manchester, England

Delightful structures meet an untimely demise in America often. The gem has a real sense of survival, the location is in back of Shudehill Station. This lovely overnight journey from London was enjoyable as Ashton House is not a third world barracks, thankfully. The computers were additionally £1 the hour. We're learning us Americans to like dining in the basement if the water table cooperates. We have some sayings like "nickel & dime", "hamper scamper", "elbow in the eye" not european

The staff and personnel are helpful at all times and the hostel is brand new. Breakfast is included and there nothing surprising. Hot showers, lockers, mattresses, kitchen and terrace- well it is most excellent. The Ramblas, P. de Gracia, Sagrada familia cathedral, and City Park all nearby. The quiet at night is brilliant. HI HHE is so preferrable.

Made to feel warm & cozy inside with interesting guests and caring management. Workers devote themselves to hosting a finely tuned experience. I just like this hostel and encourage DC voyagers within for a way house kind of stopover -no unrequited feeling. The €22 nightly is great DC value. The Giant Genie grocery for anything and everything makes a kinetic neighborhood better, not one bit glib.

If this were a yacht, I'd name it -LE PETIT PRINCE- location, location, location. No HDTV, no toaster, no lockers, no geyser, no prob. Still the patio kitchen has a feel of provence I favored. Unforgettable holiday holidaying with an ABBA touch that may not last forever.

If this were a yacht, I'd name it -INCOGNITO-. The trip requiring two or three Lynx routes is to be factored, 50 & 56 but of course Orlando-Kissimmee's quite vast.

Sampling the "full pension" meals was good. MBIH's a youth mecca with activities to wit and a sense of non-stop fun partying. No tears here, just reflective of the SoBe energetic vitality, like a wildly popular night club.

If this were a yacht I'd name it -UNFORGETTABLE II-. Attention paid to detail creates the comforting backpackers' lodge Tampa deserves. Why gripe -this's perfection? These folks eat their hearts out for backpackers yall. ;)

I was in house briefly changing transport but the experience was most solid and I was eternally mindful I was in DC.

Leafy glade, Valkyries, and showers omg. This impeccable destination of distinction should not be overlooked by discerning travelers. Maybe they were half so happy having me as I was being there?

A blessing and refreshing glimpse of Houston. Grounds and facilities all first class A rating, exquisite, friendly and forgiving. I had considered this location before it became the MR Hostel. The place is flawless and so are the folk, furthermore it veritably crackles with excitement. The continental breakfast alone's worthy of Zagat of Michelin rating. A compound dotted with inviting nooks and niches; fascinating.

Dramatic and dynamic comparable to a Ritz Carlton, really. The dining hall view, the room plans, new and trending furnishings give the impression planners were profoundly devoted to image and perfection. H.I. Chicago's a sophisticated marvel.

Leery of evaluating the hotel industry, accustomed to having doors slammed in my face ringingly; my obsession usually is this is too good and I hope it isn't razed before I return. Thanks v. much. In the past I sensed within beautiful New Orleans had a sanctuary.
