Where do i start.... When i walked into the lobby to checkout the smell was just disgusting. The rooms are tight, squeaky and uncomfortable with no towel given and tiny blanket. Breakfast was beyond a joke. I got an omelette covered (i mean covered) in OIL with a stale baguette. Staff always looked miserable and everything was untidy. At night it turns into a party place so don't expect sleep here. I moved down the road to Vintage Hostel (same price) which was incredible. Avoid this place.
Friendliest family hostel I've ever stayed at. Tin Tin and his family were so much fun. We hung out at the hostel most of the time just because the atmosphere was really good. Provided us with breakfast (always different) and really cheap drinks. If you ever need something, ask TinTin or the others, they will drive you around upon their recomendation. No pushy tourist travel agent here! They give you the options but don't care at all if you don't book or not. The prices for buses/tours are cheap
Horrible mattresses and disgusting showers. We met no english tourists there, just locals staying here. They had no respect for anybody but themselves. Kept light on until 1am, used a hair dryer in room at 5:30am... for that i would never go back to this hostel. They should have rules in place or teach them some manners. The staff are very accommodating and very helpful. They helped us book accom for Hoi An which was awesome.
Ripped me off with the Visa for Vietnam. Very misleading. Lied and told me its 60USD at the embassy if i go myself when it was only 45USD (no rush). I paid her 65USD for them to do it, thinking it was only $5 more, only to find out how cheap it really was by another backpacker. Then i noticed someone pay 260k (as per price list) for bus to hanoi when i paid 200k after telling her i saw it next door for 180k. The swimming pool is a dump which is 2min walk from the hostel. Avoid!
The hostel is clean. The showers work great, the beds aren't bad and the staff are nice. Bed lockers are horrible - so be careful with your goods. Drink prices are really cheap at the hostel which is good to see. The common area is a good place to meet people while eating the very nice breakfast. Across the road from the famous sakura bar - so perfect location. It is very very loud until about 12:30am -2am every night - don't expect to be in peace and quiet as its a party hostel.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS! booked a 4 bed, ended up in 12 bed because overbooked as per other reviews! this happend to nearly every person who came. Terrible wifi that doesn't work. Staff are extremely rude. Broken unsecure lockers. Rooms don't have locked doors. One toilet and shower for whole floor. Lobby is dirty with hard wooden chairs (not a place to meet people). I'd rather sleep on the streets next time. Absolute joke and rip off. Staff tried to take my deposit and argued against it.
Great little hostel in centre of town. Staff were helpful and the rooms were nice and air-conditioned.Toilets smelt horrible though - especially while showering so this was a real put off. Lots of rules and extra charges were a little annoying. Basic breakfast is included in the price. WIFI is nearly not usable as it always drops out or doesn't connect.
The staff are extremely professional. The place is brand new and very well planned out. Free breakfast and coffee/tee (more than enough). Showers are awesome, beds are comfortable and the price isn't too high. The hostel is about 5min walk from the station and really close to good food places. The common area is really easy to meet other like minded travellers as well. Will be back.
The staff make this hostel very enjoyable - like being at home. They're super helpful and always friendly. I asked a million questions and they went out of their way to find every answer. Scooters only 200baht and food is cheap. It does lack a little atmosphere but it's quiet and not too close to the loud nightclubs. You can get a decent nights sleep atleast. Will come back to this hostel in the future. Thanks again for everything!
Was a really good quality hostel - very up to date! I arrived very early in the morning and couldn't checkin until the other people checkout out although the staff did everything they could to accommodate me. I ended up ditching this place for a hotel but did have a nap in the comfortable bed. The location is very hard to get to but its close to the main backpackers area.
Breakfast is average but included. Staff always looked rushed and didn't throw odd a positive vibe at all. Rooms are good, showers are good and food is good. Tours are 200% more expensive than travel agents for the same tours (avoid!) also this Hostel is very loud! People came in drunk for the 5 nights I was there.
Nice rooms but they are never locked. Staff were ok but had an attitude when checking in. Breakfast was free but basic. Drink prices are overpriced, same with the food. Two doors down beets were half the price - hence nobody being in the bar. Would stay again though.
Had everything you would need in a hostel. Bar is small but still ok. Breakfast is amazing - buffet. They speak good English and are very helpful. Would definitely stay again.
Staff spoke horrible English which made it impossible to ask questions or book anything. Breakfast was free but really average. Rooms are nice though and central location. It's worth the money but there is better around.
Amazing place. Staff (family) would go out of their way to help you! Wifi worked well and the rooms were nice. The 4 bed is wooden beds with good airconditioning. The 12 bed has metal beds with a balcony though. Please be aware there is no lift to the 5th floor! They organised all my tours and transport very well but with a fair but of commission. Will be coming back here again.
My only problem with this Hostel is the staff spoke horrible English so asking questions were useless. Otherwise the hostel was perfect and brand new. The bar prices weren't worth it, it's half the price everywhere else. The location is a bit far from the backpacker area. Maybe try elsewhere next time.
Great location, reasonable price and good bar area but never busy. The rooms were below standard for any hostel. Had a good time though. The bar is a bit pricey compared to its neighbours.
Came into my room at night with bugs all over my bed and the room dead. Beds are super squeaky and showers are horrible. The building looks like it's a half built run-down squatters house. Nothing special about this place. No security whatsoever and they wanted to keep my passport. Stay at Siem Reap Hostel instead.
Had everything a European hostel would have and more. Very helpful people and the prices at the bar are reasonable. Would definitely stay here again if I pass through.
Booked the stay 4 and pay 3 but they took my money for all 4 - then ignore emails. When at the bar, the girl working was talking about how excited she was to leave the place. The bar prices are ridiculous and no drinks in room or common area to enjoy you're own wine. Not worth the money.
Honestly like home. This is perfect for solo travellers. The description is very accurate with all facilities. Momma made the best dinners! Awesome value. It was incredibly hard to leave this place. The staff were beyond what I've ever experienced. The staff should be extremely proud! #1 hostel!
This hostel is easily my favourite place. Best location. Staff go out of their way to help and socialise with you. Wifi works everywhere. Free computer use. Rooms are huge with your own little private booth for a bed + light/power outler. Key card Lockers under bed. Showers/toilets are amazing! Breakfast is very decent and free. Drinks are cheap. Full kitchen for use. Lots of activities night and day. I stayed extra just to relax. Very good value for money.
Staff were rude and gave no effort in helping me multiple times. Didn't get a map or any instructions about wifi/toilets/showers ect. All 4 toilets were blocked when I arrived where always blocked. Push button showers last like 5 seconds. Only 1 power outlet in a room of 10 and wifi NEVER works, even in the common room. I had to go to a internet Cafe. How is this ranked highly? Worst hostel yet out of the 26+ hostels I've stayed in.
It was well located. Wifi worked in most places. Rooms had mini balcony. Not a lively hostel but cosy. Full kitchen for use was very good. Beds were very comfortable. No information given when checking in was annoying. Floors were dirty and showers were gross. Would consider again.
Great hotel with a flawless design. Staff were incredibly helpful. Wifi was sketchy but they had like 12 free computers which was great. They provide free paela at 10pm one night which was very nice! Only thing i didnt like was that the beds squeek and were terrible (always wake everyone up) and Towels and storage arent free. Also some kind of paid breakfast would be good - for convienence. I noticed heaps of groups going through this hostel - harder to meet solo people. Would stay again :)
Rooms were decent, wifi worked, fridge in room, showers were clean, aircon worked, 100m from beach, full kitchen and common area and free maps to use. This hostel is perfect, i have no real complaints at all - apart from the organisation with checkin which was a real hassel and the breakfast isnt worth it - just go next door to supermarket. Would 100% come back to this hostel though in a heart beat. Made some really good friends here!
Great location on main strip. Beds are great with outlets, lights and curtains. Common room/bar was very well layed out. Staff weren't social but helped when asked. My only complaints were one, the kitchen is just a microwave + sink and is always disgusting. Two, when i arrived i was given my room key and not showed anything... i just took the useless french map and went to my room - not even shown the toilets or any facilities.
Perfect location close to train station. Free wifi, single beds, pc use, clean showers but no lockers. Information from staff was very helpful (when you can find her). The white sheets on the bed were beyond disgusting, like they had never been washed. The sheets themselves had stains as well - all beds in the room. No atmosphere at this place, didn't see a single guest while I was there unfortunately. Would stay in same location again.
Checked in at 5pm with an uncleaned room. Staff were OK, but they weren't even on the same level as some rooms are on. No common area so very hard to meet other people. The street its on is terribly unappealing at night. The bathroom was good, the WiFi worked and the beds were OK. It also had good lockers almost big enough for your bag. I don't think ill stay here again based on the location and the fact i didn't meet anyone.
Pros: Great location, free towels, comfortable beds, free computers and easy to get places. Cons: Don't visit the overpriced travel center they own. I asked about where to eat and got no help at all on the local cuisine. No atmosphere at all this time of year but is expected. WiFi wouldn't work in my room so i had to sit on the stairs. Wouldn't stay again, sorry.
The local staff were unhelpful with tourist info unless it's about their connections. No alcohol or food allowed anywhere - so you had to buy inflated beer prices on rooftop. Airport shuttle is 15€ with them or 10€ two doors down with same compay. This hostel will try make money off everything. Rooms were nice, breakfast ok, showers were hot and rooftop had a good view. A big tip: Sultanahmet = sights/tourist trap restaurants, taksim = pubs/clubs/hotels.
Paid, €5.90 for a mattress on the ground, next to 18 other people. No breakfast included (€3 extra). Common room is a little small. Nini was very friendly, but the guys weren't interested at all. Good location, average wifi (not in rooms), Lockers are a little small, key card entry, linen provided. Not my cup of tea though.
Honestly out of the many small hostels ive stayed in, this one stands out! It is like coming home to your family - very hard to leave. It has a heart and soul. Worth every cent, amazing location, and extremely friendly staff. Thanks to beautiful Zee and the girls for an amazing stay. I will be back :) Brayden
Empty this time of year. Very cosy Hostel and exceptional location. Staff extremely helpful. No rush on paying (as I had no local money) free towels and linen. Only negative is no atmosphere at all and blankets are sized for midgets.
Tame compared to Retox. Perfect location (5 min walk to octagon) Awesome social area and useful kitchen. Definitely worth the money. Met some really great people here. 8 bed dorm had only 2 people in it. Only bad part, the disgusting showers/toilets and rooms. Staff have horrible cleaning skills! I wouldn't call this a party hostel.
It's a little far from the centre. Didn't include breakfast or towels. Heaps of school groups stay here. I found it hard to meet people. Even the bar was dead all night and overpriced. Just wasn't my favourite Hostel.
Rooms don't have an Ensuite like it says. Only one power point in the room. It has good secure Lockers. No breakfast at all. 10min walk to old town but not that close to train station. It's ok but a little overpriced. It does have good wifi in rooms though. €10 for a room key deposit was a surprise.
Please book this! Easily the best Hostel I've stayed in. Free breakfast, dinner and beers at night! Unbelievable staff, very helpful and warming (especially Olga). Hands down best place to meet people, makes Krakow a great experience. This is better than g&t beer Hostel (I went there).
Looks a bit run down but it's cosy and welcoming inside. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Breakfast, linen, towels are included. Easy to meet people here! Beds where comfortable but a little squeaky. Could do with more showers/toilets. Would definitely come back! I stayed in 14bed but it was broken up so only 8 in the room :)
This Hostel was a joke from the time I arrived. The girl who checked me in was incredibly rude and had no idea what she was doing. Charged me in aud, when I said euro. Then no directions to the room or around Munich itself. Breakfast not included, towel not included, linen was dirty. The rooms where so hot that three of us didn't get sleep on any of the nights we stayed. It's loud and showers are dirty and not inviting. All the staff were miserable and unhelpful.
Perfect rooms and only a 10min walk into town. Showers were clean, Lockers were great and secure. It was painfully hot at night with no airconditioning. Impossible to meet people at this Hostel, not for solo travellers but overall it's great.
Owner was extremely rude to a bunch of people in the common room about bring loud (at 9pm). The place is like staying in the a construction zone. The building is 15mins from Check-in and looks terrible. The door is a joke, as is most of the place. It should be discounted due to renovations. The owner has put silly signs up everywhere with his rules. Definitely wouldn't stay here again.
Had a great time here. Breakfast was good, bar was unreal at night and it was always staffed. Lockers under bed were safe.. Definitely the best Hostel iv stayed in. Staff didn't show any interest when asking questions and came off as rude. The location is perfect for Amsterdam though.
Try to look more interested in your guests next time. Was a waste of time asking any of the staff for help.
Stayed for 5 nights tue-sun Pros: Staff very welcoming and helpful thoughout the stay. Breakfast was great and the location is perfect. Just 10mins from big ben and 5min from the London eye. Cons: Very very very loud being next to a train station - i can sleep through a bomb but this is a challenge. A bit old, could do with a freshen up. Would definitely stay again for the price.
