The Walrus Hostel

London, England

Very well located directly at Waterloo Station (however next to the tracks, so you might bring earplugs), cosy furnishing and comfy beds, very helpful staff, pub downstairs, free breakfast - one of the best hostels I've stayed in.

CheapSleep Helsinki

Helsinki, Finland

The hostel is located a bit away from the city center, however there are good transport connections (tram 1 and 7). The hostel itself is very clean, silent and quite new. The huge community space gives it a nice touch. However, there are only five showers, two toilets and two sinks for all male guests - that could be more. The staff is friendly and supportive, a supermarket with wide opening hours is located directly beneath the hostel.


The "B" is very well located next to a Subway station (Marcy Av.), the ride to Manhattan takes approx. 10 minutes. The downside is that the Subway runs elevated which makes it quite loud. Also, none of the rooms have their own ceiling, the floors are basically separated only by high walls. So you have privacy but might hear the other guests. Otherwise the hostel was very new and clean and the staff helpful. There are more than enough sockets but too few restrooms, a supermarket is nearby.

Hatters on Newton Street

Manchester, England

Well located hostel, comfortable beds. Only downturns: There are too few sockets and the lockers should be bigger and inside the dorms, not on the corridor.

We're glad you enjoyed your stay! We keep the lockers outside of the rooms in the corridors so that we can have CCTV surveillance on them at all times, so your things are extra secure! Thanks for your feedback, we hope to have you with us again! :)

Hostel 24

Ljubljana, Slovenia

The hostel is well located a few hundred meters away from the Old Town, the dorm was in the basement and quite dark and narrow, but equipped with two large bathrooms for 12 people, free lockers (bring a large lock) and enough sockets. The staff was friendly and helpful. For the low price a good recommendation to stay.


Well located, well furnished hostel of the Meininger brand. Friendly staff, clean rooms. The only thing really missing were lockers in the room, but there are some near the reception.

Smart Hyde Park Inn Hostel

London, England

Very well located within a one-minute walk from two Underground stations in a nice old building. The beds are very comfortable and every bunk has it's own curtain - a big plus for some privacy. Also the facilities were in good condition and clean. On the downside: the whole building is very cramped, there is not much public space an the dorms are extremely fully packed with bunks. There are lockers under each bunk with key card access but they are available for a quite high extra fee only.

Madness Hostel

Belgrade, Serbia

One of the best hostels I stayed in. Well located next to the pedestrian zone in an appartment building. It is basically a big flat with two dorm rooms, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. It was very clean and the staff enourmously friendly and welcoming. They even made us free dinner. Only one thing: As the building itself has no visible house number (it's 7) and the hostel has only a small sticker above the door it is quite hard to find - just look for "The Queens Pub" right next to it.

Castle Rock Hostel

Edinburgh, Scotland

Very well situated, friendly and helpful staff and absolutely clean.

Chambers of the Boheme

Istanbul, Turkey

The hostel is very well situated near Taksim Square and the staff is 24/7 available, friendly and helpful. The building itself was partly renovated and as well as the furniture in good condition and quite clean. The only thing that really bothered me is that there were several stacks of unused spare furniture around in several rooms as well as unused and forgotten stuff in several racks in the dorm (like forgotten books and old pillows). A major spring cleaning should take place there.


Cardiff, Wales

Very well situated hostel with friendly staff and nice atmosphere, the bunks are very comfortable. The lockers are a bit small as a normal larger bagpack as well as a cabin trolley wouldn't fit into.

Residenza Santa Croce

Venice, Italy

The check-in office is located very well near the bus station and the central station and the staff there is very friendly and helpful. The room itself was 10 minutes walk away perfectly but very quiet located in the city centre directly next to the Canale Grande with a Vaporetto stop an a supermarket nearby. The room was very clean and comfortable and equipped with a fridge, tv, huge fan and offered enough space and comfort for the stay. Would definetely recommend this hostel again.

Hatters on Newton Street

Manchester, England

My bed was very comfortable, the room was clean besides one used fork that I found in one of the drawers. The building itself make some noises (especially the thingy that provides water to the bathrooms I think) which can be somewhat disturbing during the night. Location is just great, staff was helpful. Only big letdown: The showers on my floor didn't provide any hot water during my stay.

City Backpacker - Hostel Biber

Zurich, Switzerland

The location is very central but therefore quite loud at night. The rooms are very small but clean. There are only very small lockers in the dorms. The hostel is located on the second to sixth floor of an old building, therefore there are narrow stairs and no elevator. The reception is only open from 8 to 11am (not 12am as mentioned on the web!) and 3 to 10pm which is not really comfortable. Strangers can enter the building unseen. There are only two showers and toilets for a floor of 5 rooms.


Vienna, Austria

The rooms and the entire building are very austere, the furniture is quite oldfashioned. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location is good with a tram stop (Line D) on the street outside and the subway (Line U4) about 200 metres away. There are several supermarkets and restaurants in the nearby surroundings. In the rooms is only a sink, the toilets and showers are spread over the floor. The showers are group showers with no dividers, so one shouldn't be shy.

Copenhagen GO Hotel

Copenhagen, Denmark

The building is still under refurbishment, therefore there are some works going on but they don't bother you. The room was small but in good condition, the bathroom was brand new but the bedsheets where somewhat dirty. There's a flatscreen TV in the room. The location is good, only 3 minutes from the airport and 10 to the city by train, which stops 50 metres away. A bank, supermarket and 7/11 are nearby.

The Yellow

Rome, Italy

Nice location only five minutes to walk from the central station. Bar and restaurant downstairs (reception is in the middle behind the bar) but rooms are up from the second to the fifth floor (small elevator available) and therefore very quiet. room and bathroom were tidy and clean, fans were available but the air condition wasn't. Really huge lockers under each bed (normal padlocks will work). A free luggage storage room is available in the cellar (no personal lockers there).

Globetrotters/The Townhouse

Dublin, Ireland

The location is good, only 10 minutes to walk to Temple Bar and only 4 from Busaras central bus station. The interior is cosy and old fashioned (in the good way), the staff was friendly and helpful. Basic irish breakfast included. I had to store my stuff under the bed as there where no lockers left free in my room and the ensuite bathroom had no doorlock so you could have been surprised while showering. there where some really old towels on the floor. two of the four sockets didn't work.

Yes! Lisbon Hostel

Lisbon, Portugal

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Great location in the city centre, only 3 minutes to walk to subway, tram, busses. Very clean (maids came every day) and spacious rooms with wooden interior (beds, chairs, tables) and very modern and comfortable bathrooms and a balcony. cosy beds. Key cards used for access to hostel itself, the room and the huge lockers under each bed - security therefore is very good. Staff is friendly and helpful, WiFi and three iMacs are available in the lobby.
