Except for its location by a side street which could be noisy in the night during sleeping hours and the loud ruckus from drinkers hanging outside the adjacent bar after closing hours (past midnight), this hostel would have been much better.
Checked into a 8-bed room on a Saturday not realizing that the other 7 occupants were alcoholic Brits! They drunk beer, bourbon & vodka with coke in the room. Came back more intoxicated at 4am, woke me up, shook my hands and kept their nuisance until 7am! Changed my room and came to know that these group of Brits were regulars on weekends. Some other punks and rowdy ones watching a live EPL game on Sunday would definitely made house guests running through the door exit when a goal was scored!
Free herbal-mix in the bar after breakfast time and being right next to the touristy red light district would appeal to most people. Smokers definitely loved the place while non-smokers avoided the bar.
Firstly, it is an iconic building! Then with all the usual facilities meeting expectations, this hostel becomes an excellent choice.
A typical smallish but good hotel. Free wifi & nice breakfast, excellent bed/room and about 13mins walk from Louise metro station.
Nice and rather quiet place to stay. A cafe and supermarket downstairs for added convenience. And the kitchen has a dishwasher! Good choice!
Excellent hostel! So look no further for accommodation in Munich!
Stayed in a 6-bed room which was rather cramped but for the price and location in expensive Zurich, it was considered a good deal. One other consideration was the noises from the pubs nearby which continued well past midnight.
It is hard to beat a place with excellent facilities, helpful staff, convenient location to main attractions and free food all day long, even dinners! Come and experience it!
A big hostel with extra facilities like swimming pool, sauna, gym and others. No kitchen for guest though. Counter staff were rather stretched during peak check in/out periods. Overall, good place!
Comfortable place and within walking distance to all the main sites, metro Universita and ferry point.
Stayed in a comfortable 4-bed room ensuite. Conveniently located within a short walk from the train station. Liked it more with the helpful reception staff,
It was easy to reach the hostel from the train or bus station. And rooms with sea view could look across towards S Marco Basilica and the Clock Tower! Excellent place away from the tourist hordes and just one convenient boat stop away.
Everything was good except for my 'basement' room with just a tiny window opening right onto the public pavement. Aircon was turned on to shut out the street noise but could still hear and feel the occasional trams rambling on the tracks. But credit to the hostel for keeping the room so clean and comfortable though!
Smallish hostel and so to expect tighter spaces in the rooms, kitchen and toilets. Helpful staff around to plan your daily schedules etc.
Walking distance from the bus terminal or just a few tram stops from the train station. Easier to take the tram to the city square or Cathedral area. Nice quiet hostel.
Confidently located at Octogon along Metro Line 1 and just one stop away from Vorosmarty, an excellent start point for Free Walking Tours/pedestrian streets/Danube River/Chain Bridge etc. The Hostel has curtain for individual beds which is a good shield against any lights in the evening. Slept well here,
Conveniently located near the Westbankof train station, metros and tram. Other than average cleanliness as the rooms were not cleaned everyday as confirmed by a lady reception staff, its other facilities were good.
Sited in a quiet neighbourhood but easy walk from the train station and to the old town & Fortress area. Cheap beers and breakfast are pluses. Cool!
Conveniently located, very near to the castle and just a few minutes walk to Charles Bridge. Lucas at the reception desk was extremely helpful and so were the others. Highly recommended.
Neat and cosy place with the ever helpful DJ around! Easy to reach from the subway line and also just a few stops on the same line from the major sights.
A warm and lovely little hostel with a passionate lady owner who will made you feel so at home! And being next to the main sight - Hanouk Village, was another great point.
A very good hostel that ticked all the boxes. Great choice!
Such an excellent place despite its smallish size and with just a couple of staff manning the reception desk and kitchen. Facilities expected of a good hostel were there. Staff was very helpful and gave very detailed travel info on the interesting sites on the island. Highly recommended!
Very helpful and knowledgeable staff conversant in English. Coupled with a location within minutes walk from the train station, it is a great place to stay!
Great place with helpful staff and a convenient location near to a traditional market, subway and food streets.
Large hostel and yet capable of maintaining extremely high standards of service. Never had to rush for laundry, kitchen usages or even seatings on the common floor. Great place!
Most expectations of a good hostel are met. Unlike so many others, free wifi here is a great positive! Kitchen is on the small side and was crammed during peak periods. The other negative was their no refund policy: so never ever pay room rates too many days ahead if travel plans are still fluid.
A good hostel in a great location. The only negative point was the tiny window-slit design in the 12-bedder room. Just don't know how could such a tiny opening be able to ventilate and cool the big room. So the room stayed very warm and stuffy until after midnite when the cooler temperature offered a little relief. So beware of the 12-bedder room!
A good hostel that many will be happy with. For those who cooked, the kitchen is on the small side and would likely be packed during 'peak' hours.
A highly recommended place where other than lack of free wifi, all other usual expectations are definitely met. Very helpful staff!
Managed by a very friendly couple, this hostel was homely and warm. Thanks to them, I started booking transport and admission tickets online thus saving me significant amount of money!
Good facilities as one would expect and coupled with very helpful staff - what more to ask for?!!! Highly recommended!
A well managed hostel with all the comfort and requisite services expected. The hostel was very thoughtful to provide at cost beer, snacks, coffee and instant noodles for guests' convenience. Its helpful and friendly staff helps to create a warm and homey stay for all. Good choice for those searching for beds in the city and near to the train station.
At a quiet corner away just about a street away from the main road. Easy access to public transport, 7-11 store, Sogo, food especially in the 'little India' area and Natural Science Museum. Very helpful staff in this rather small peaceful place. However, the only toilet for guys at the lower floor could be a problem during peak period.
Conveniently located very near to the Main Station and off the main roads. Other amenities around include convenience stores, food stalls & cafe and even a couple of fast food outlets. Helpful staff and clean environment too.
A really homey place, small and comfy and in a great location with a friendly owner. But could possibly be negated by a sour-face young lady staff. On the first morning, when I pressed the intercom for help as got problem with opening the main door with the key, she was so grouchy and unhelpful. Got into the hostel and got a 20 sec-earful of 'scolding' in Spanish which luckily, I don't understand. The owner said she wasn't angry but she really was! What more with her wild hand gesturings!
So cosy and comfortable, especially for those who loved smaller, quieter and smoke-free (within the premises) environment. Very much like a well-kept home. Easy walk from Catalunya metro station. The owner and his staff are very friendly and helpful too.
An excellent hostel which should be the sector's benchmark. The one thing to add on will be to provide breakfast. Best aspect is the individual beds in the spacious room. Also the spaciousness of the kitchen and the lounge area. Keep it up!
An excellent place. Could have given full marks if not for the bad ventilation or lack of exhaust in the toilets. All the smell either lingered on or flowed into the rooms. Very helpful and friendly staff, especially the cheerful lady manning the afternoon shift.
Easy to locate and very near to the ferry terminal. A comfy place with helpful staff. Less than 10mins walk to all the main attractions.
It has such a casual and layback atmosphere. Double decked beds built roughly on poles and planks with the lower bed (just a mattress) resting on the floor. Sturdy and not shaky, so no creaking noises. Toilets and lounge area rather dirty. Saw the cleaning lady sweeping the dirty floor in the early morning and using the same broom to sweep the wooden lounging table! The staff were helpful and friendly though. If you joined their dinner, be prepared to eat much later than the stated 9pm time.
The rooms on the ground floor were stuffy due to obvious lack of ventilation. And rather noisy too, being next to the lounge area. The very helpful staff was understanding enough to move me to another bed on the upper floor. The toilets sure need some plumbing and repair works! The hardworking and helpful staff makes the difference here.
Comfy, secured place and just a short walk to the medina. Very helpful staff to make your stay pleasant. The in-house dinner was tasty and value for money. Greatly recommended.
Situated at a quiet residential corner just a few minutes down from the medina square. The helpful owner is such a nice guy although he spoke only in French. This is one rare hostel where the owner personally serve us tea during breakfast! Wifi is available but not highlighted in website. Cosy and good place.
Conveniently located inside the medina and less than 10mins slow walk from the ferry/port. Helpful staff and there is a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea.
A great place in an ideal location just a minute away from the cathedral. Friendly and helpful staff, good facilities and surrounded by cafés and restaurants - what more can a guest really wants? Highly recommended.
Certainly a top hostel with good facilities, helpful staff and great location inside Rossio train station. Enjoyed my stay here very much!
A hostel with clean beds and sheets in big room, good facilities and friendly staff. However it gets very noisy from around 11pm to 3.30am when big groups of youngsters gather at the pubs drinking and making lots of noises just outside the hostel. If you can sleep through such loud noises and don't mind climbing up some steep steps with your backpack, then this place may be fine.
A great place so near to Sao Bento metro and the fabulous waterfront and downtown area. Walking to these areas is so convenient, all about a couple to 10mins. Excellent facilities in the hostel, very clean sheets and curtains around the beds for privacy.
All the expectations of a good hostel are here. The pool of volunteers really did a good job keeping the place clean and providing good info though the main attractions in the old quarters are just straight down the road from the hostel. Location is also fine; just a short walk from the bus station and less than 10mins to the old quarters. Go for the rooms facing the valley and avoid those facing the main road.
Great location. They really make it comfortable for all guests.
Stayed in a 8-bed mixed room and found it to be rather squeezy, especially so with the back packs and ladders! Other aspects and facilities within the hostel are commendable.
Being easy reach of the Kyoto Station is a great convenience. A clean and well maintained place makes for a comfortable stay.
Had a great time with the owner talking over food and drinks during dinner time. We bought some food while he cooked pasta or noodle, and the shared dinner was great!
Great place and definitely the best amongst the hostels that I have stayed during my 2 weeks holiday. Keep it up!
The lady (not the staff from HK) who checked us in was rather curt in reply when we asked for wifi password. It is so easy and simple to reply or pass on the password rather than to retort why we have not read through the 'read list' for it, amongst other information. We did not make a scene as it may have been an exception rather than the rule.
It is a great location, just next to Asakusa station on subway Ginza Line. Many restaurant choices and sights just minutes away. Staff are friendly and the whole place very homely and comfortable.
