Neat little hotel in the center of Venice. One of the cheaper places on the islands, and you get what you pay for. Shared bathrooms, cramped rooms, but a perfect place to stay for a couple days. I would definitely come back.

A very big hostel with a cool bar that gets busy every night. One of the cleanest hostels I've been to. Great area to sit back and relax, and a solid kitchen/eating area. Definitely worth staying here.

Extremely disorganized hostel. They were overbooked both nights we were there (if we would've showed up later than we did, we would've had to sleep in the common rooms). They keep track of open beds on a piece of paper, so it takes awhile to check in and find you an open bed. The internet didn't work the second night, the kitchen is disgusting (flies everywhere, trash is full, people smoked out of the window), and the bathroom/laundry room is filthy. Only one shower for 20ish beds.

Another good generator hostel. The only complaints I have were the area it's in is a little sketchy, but it's right next to the train station which is nice, and our en-suite bathroom smelled terrible the entire time.

A bit of a inconvenience since the hostel is a train ride away from the main city, but it's a bit nice to get away from the craziness of Amsterdam at night. Everything else was good.

Hi Keith, Thanks for reviewing your stay at Meininger! We as the staff of Meininger are sometimes very happy to be away from the craziness of Amsterdam at night as well:) Hope to see you some other time! Warm regards from Meininger

The only reason I marked it down was because it was super loud due to the remodeling while we were there. Other than that, this place is awesome. Can't go wrong with the Generator chain of hostels.

Great location, very loud and dirty because they were remodeling when we were there. It would've been nice if they gave a discount for staying during the construction. The kitchen also flooded while we were there. Overall, it's going to be a great hostel when they are finished.

No Name is your basic party hostel. They don't have a bar, but have a beer vending machine and don't seem to mind if you bring in your own drinks. Beds were average, and the bathrooms are okay as well. They have nightly, free sangria at 9pm every night. They also organize a bunch of events with other hostels throughout the week.

Good hostel for the price, but this place is HOT. There's no A/C (like most places in Barca), and it's hard to sleep, or do anything for that matter, while you're there. Tierra Azul would be a great place to stay if you are going to Spain outside of the summer months.

Pretty good place to stay in Barcelona...we ended up coming back purely for the air conditioning. The staff is very welcoming, but you won't want to stay in the hostel for long as it's very quiet and everyone pretty much keeps to themselves. Beds aren't bad, and the bathrooms stay clean.

The BEST hostel in Rio - hands down. They are literally a block from the beach, have an in-house bar, awesome staff that will take you to great local places, they're close to a mall and tons of restaurants...the list could go on and on. We started out with a 3-night reservation, and ended up staying for 7. Don't look anywhere else...this is the place to be.

Milhouse Hipo is an great party hostel in the heart of BsAs. We stayed for 3 nights in a twin private and had an awesome time. The in-house bar makes it easy to meet fellow travelers, and they have parties every other day, along with live music and other events throughout the week. Great place to stay if you want to drink the night away while in Argentina.

Hostel Estoril, Buenos Aires, Argentina
6.9
15th May 2013

Estoril is located in a nice old buiding in BsAs, but isn't really close to much, other than a dirty park a few blocks away. The room I had was the loudest room I have ever stayed in, due to the fact there were huge gaps in the windows and door to the patio, which looked over a busy street. It was definitely difficult to sleep at night. They have a "sister" hostel that hosted a BBQ dinner one night that was great, but overall the stay was mediocre at best. Stay here when desperate.

Hi! We are located right on the city center, walking distance from many of the main sights, such as "Casa Rosada", Congress building, Florida st., San Telmo market, Recoleta, etc. Some of our rooms are facing the avenue, so they have a lot of natural sunlight and nice balconies facing Barolo Palace. Other rooms are at the back of the hostel so they are really quiet. We also have a huge rooftop available to use 24/7! Thanks for reading!

Flying dog seems like a party hostel that has had one to many parties. The bar/backyard area is super rundown and dirty, but the rest of the hostel is in decent shape. Our room was clean, but had a strong smell of cleaning chemicals that wouldn't go away. Overall a good stay as you get what you pay for.

Pariwana is party hostel, and our room was pretty loud due to some construction next door (which I understand is not their fault). The location was awesome, and the atmosphere was good as well. The rooftop/bar area was a little dirty, and the staff seemed to hang around drinking and hitting on the female guests more than doing their actual bartending jobs, but it kept it entertaining.

The epiphany of a party hostel, which has it's pros and cons. I enjoyed it, as we met tons of people and had a good time, but the rooms/bathrooms were dirty and they didn't have lockers. They do have an awesome rooftop bar and pool, which made the stay worth it. San Jose overall is not the city to go to, as it's unsafe and very dirty.

In & Basic is just how it sounds - basic. The room wasn't bad (other than nightly mosquito attacks, which is expected during Costa Rican summer), the beds were average, and the bathroom was decent. It's a very relaxed hostel overall. My only complaint was that it is very difficult to find, as they have no real address (???), just directions from a main street.
