Really nice hostel with good facilities. They don't offer a free pub crawl like other hostels in Hvar but there are options to join the one next door at Skansi. Beds really comfy and rooms really clean. Ice cream on arrival was a definite highlight :)

Really nice hostel, staff were super friendly and helpful, good facilities although there were very few showers for the number of people and we had to wait aaaaages for our turn. They have a nightly pub crawl. Really nice sofas and hammocks on the terrace to relax on.

Castanea Old Town Hostel, Stockholm, Sweden

20th May 2016

Really great hostel in THE BEST location in Stockholm! Really loved staying here! The beds were really comfy although the dorms were a bit short of space. The social area was nice with a quiet, laid back atmosphere. It was quite stuffy in the hostel but not unbearably so, I think it was just a hot weekend I was there and these places are equipped for harsh winters! The staff were great but felt like they were never there. There were also quite few bathrooms/showers which meant a bit of waiting.

Thank you for your good review! Glad you enjoyed the atmosphere! The recpetion is open 9-11 and 15-18, but we're almost always here 9-18 with a little lunch break. Welcome to come and visit us again!

Mosquito Hostel, Krakow, Poland

3rd May 2016

I loved this hostel! The staff were absolutely fantastic, pulling out all the stops to get us onto an Auschwitz tour even though we arrived on a bank holiday when it was closed to tourists, I really appreciate that (Thanks Tomek!)! It was my friend's first time in a hostel too and she loved it, it was so clean and had a really nice atmosphere. Free breakfast and dinner was also great and helped us save lots of money rather than eating out. Thanks Mosquito!

15th Nov 2015

The best hostel I've ever stayed in (& I've stayed in a lot). I arrived into Nelson late at night with no prior warning & in the poring rain, so I called the hostel to ask for directions and without any hesitation the owner came out in the storm to pick me up. It was such a relief. The bed was comfy and the room really cosy. The vibe of the hostel was great, with a no wifi zone from 8-9, encouraging guests to mingle. Free pudding was delicious. I came back to recuperate after doing the AT track.

14th Nov 2015

Really good location but the facilities were pretty poor and I'm sorry to say but the staff (or at least the two receptionists I spoke to) were incredibly rude, especially when I was trying to store my bag in the lockers. I couldn't work out how to use them (absolutely exhausted from travelling) only to be spoken to sarcastically. I think having to pay for storage for only 2 hours was a bit mean too, as there seemed to be space behind reception. Apart from that, the room was clean but cold.

Really great hostel in an awesome location! Really couldn't be better with a view over the Golden Gate Bridge. I guess a bit far from Downtown but transport connections were easy! Facilities were good, a few impossible dorm mates but that can't be helped! They also had some cool free tours which I wanted to go on but didn't have time in the end. Staff were great too and gave loads of advice. A must stay in SF!

I loved this hostel! It has a great vibe, great facilities and easy transport connections to and from Yosemite Valley. I didn't realise how far away from the Valley it was, nor how expensive it'd be to get there and back into the valley every day (roughly $6 each way) but the hostel definitely made up for it by giving lots of advice and a 15% discount because I arrived here on Greyhound. Really enjoyed my time here, Recommend it for any budget traveler without camping equipment.

Really enjoyed my stay here, it's a great hostel with great facilities such as the mystery TV room and a bar that serves food for a really good price. The only annoyance was having to keep my food in the room, although there was a fridge in each room, and one occasion when I had to change rooms because of the smell of cannabis. The staff were really helpful and I was moved to a different room. Really recommend this hostel.

4th Sep 2015

This hostel is a hidden gem along the ice fields parkway, not far from the banff/jasper border. It was incredibly cheap and great value for money. The facilities great, or were as good as they could be for a rustic hostel and the warden will even allow you to connect to his wifi, although it isn't always on. Take a seat by the creek and definitely try out the sauna which is definitely pretty rustic. A great hostel that I hope to visit again one day.

Really enjoyed my stay here although having to get the bus in and out of town grew tiresome after a while as the house could be unreliable and run every 40 mins. But the location is beautiful with great views of tunnel mountain and trails that lead away from the mountain. The facilities are good and clean with a nice lounge area and fantastic kitchen. The dorms were good and the atmosphere was fun. Definitely recommend as I think it's great value for money considering Banff prices.

Lovely hostel although it's on the outskirts of the city centre. We got upgraded to a private room which was lovely, although some friends of ours were in the dorms and they looked brill, with seperate pods per bunk bed with a curtain surrounding for privacy! Would definitely go back!

The showers and the toilets didn't seem too clean and the bedrooms were really, really basic. It was a decent location next to the big food street which was good for cheap eats. It didn't feel very safe because the doors were wafer thin and so took valuables out with us. The electricity kept giving out and the air conditioning broke down several times which wasn't great. Glad we didn't stay more than 2 nights but it was bearable for that amount of time.

A proper hotel for hostel prices. Breakfast included, staff very friendly, bicycles and scooters available for low prices, laundry very cheap and is all done for you, tumble dried and ironed at no extra cost. Location was a bit out of the way but I think that's where all the hostels in Hue tend to be. Would recommend to anyone, a very nice hotel which is excellent value for money. Best place we stayed in Vietnam.

I really enjoyed my stay here, it's a really basic hostel about 10 minutes walking distance from the old town, provides air conditioned rooms with towels and free breakfast which was a bargain. Swimming pool was available in another branch of the hotel about a minute's walk from the hostel, which was great after a really hot day. Good tours booked through the hostel, make sure to go to Cham Islands with the Blue Coral centre as they're so much better than the local one!

Very conveniently located hostel right next to Luban Rd metro station, and very good prices for rooms. The shared facilities were of a high standard but were not always very clean. There is a pool table but no wifi access from the rooms which wasn't too much of a hassle. Staff were very nice and hospitable. No restaurant unfortunately in the hostel but there are lots of really good restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend as it made our stay in Shanghai so much easier.

Very clean hostel with good, basic facilities. Location was nothing special, although being next to the train station was a plus. It offered tours up to Huangshan mountain although at a price that they didn't fully inform us on. The staff's english wasn't great so it was often difficult to communicate. Nice common room with a pool table and good food being served from the kitchen.

This hostel was very conveniently located, just 5 minutes by bus to the gates to the park for only 1 yuan. Within walking distance to Wulingyuan's food quarter and town centre which was convenient for meals. Staff spoke very poor English but it was fine because there were leaflets offering the exact advice we needed in English (how to get to the train station, park entrance, park routes etc) which proved useful. Dorm room was a bit dingey, but the private double was very spacious and clean.

Nice hostel with very basic facilities and friendly staff. However, there was no real communal area to meet others in which, in comparison to other hostels, wasn't great. Bikes were cheap to rent at 10Y a day and is close to the bike trails. We had a very clean room but met a couple who had a cockroach in their bathroom that refused to leave! The famous Mr Wei wasn't as friendly as expected and the "3 free meals a day" came at a price of 50Y pp, for only 2 meals. Not very centrally located.

Absolutely brilliant hostel, very safe and clean with lockers in all the dorms, towels available upon request for free and very spacious rooms. Staff were incredibly helpful, helping us to book trains and buses for the next stage of our trip, acting as translators where needs be and phoning up bus companies to organise tours, without a commission and providing honest opinions. Great atmosphere, really sociable in the evenings with DVDs, music and a bar with cheap drinks. Thanks everyone!

Very basic hostel, really small rooms that fairly fit a double bed, yet very clean with clean towels and good bedsheets. It was somewhat air conditioned but it wasn't too effective. Chungking Mansions isn't the best place to stay but you get what you pay for. It was ok for one night but wouldn't stay there again, Apple Hostel is the best of a bad bunch though.
