Casa do Professor Hostel

Barreirinhas, Brazil
69%

Didn't really enjoy this hostel, weird vibe, a little awkward. Noise carries throughout because the walls don't reach the ceiling. Was a nightmare when one guest snored so loud no one else could sleep. Breakfast is limited, just bread and fruit, no ham or cheese etc. Had to buy my own additions. Lot's of rules here, more than the standard hostel. No lockers but I think this is being addressed soon. Location is fine. Prof & staff are friendly, just don't break the rules!

Tijuana Hostel

Sao Luis, Brazil

Had a great time here hanging out w staff and other guests. Location is well outside historical center but buses are close by. Facilities are OK. Rooms are big, plenty of room for bags which is a nice change. Breakfast needs at least to have ham and cheese added, it's pretty basic otherwise. Best thing here was the people!

Belem Hostel

Belem, Brazil

Owners are great, very welcoming and helpful. really enjoyed staying here and meeting them. Hostel is good, location great for the old town and markets. It wasn't very busy when I was there but during high season it would need another bathroom. Breakfast is good, bunks are fine. Lockers provided for security. Front gates locked all the time.

HI Holandes

Ilha Grande, Brazil

Hostel is a little walk away from the main part of town but it's not far. Could be better signposted (a sign on the hostel entrance would help). Being able to use the large kitchen instead of the tiny one for cooking dinner would be a big improvement. It seems strange not to let guests in a big hostel use this spacem instead it is kept for staff only & they only need it for breakfast time. Allow guests option of more than one piece of cheese & ham at breakfast, not everyone wants sweets/cake.

Vibe Hostel

Small and fun hostel. Great location for old town and bus station. Staff were great, lovely to meet them. Boat day trip was a highlight. Would be great to have more bathrooms, 2 for the whole hostel was a bit painful when it was busy. Hostel is really social, met some great people. Breakfast is good, all the usual fare for Brazil

WE Hostel Design

Sao Paulo, Brazil
80%

We hostel is a nice building in a good location, 10 mins from Ana Rosa Metro. Staff were helpful and friendly though I asked for good cheapish shopping and was directed to Iguatemi, one of the most pricey malls in Sao Paolo. Breakfast is great, lots of choice. Room was small and cramped. 6 beds in space for 4. Very noisy as right next to reception and front door.

Hostel Way2go

Florianopolis, Brazil

Hostel was quiet but staff were lovely and welcoming. Hostel is kept clean all the time, definitely felt well looked after. Security and location were great. Moments from town, buses, shops. Not a party hostel but all the bars etc and right nearby so it didn't need to be a party hostel.

Stayed here only to be close to friends at a nearby hotel. Centro is not the place to be in Floripa and I moved as soon as my friends left. Hostel is good, clean, etc. All facilities you need. Breakfast isn't great, limited. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Pantanal Backpakers

Cuiaba, Brazil

Booked a twin room, got a room the size of a cupboard w bunks instead. Wouldn't have bothered w the private room had I known it was just bunk beds. Loads of mozzies. Had AC but it was really loud and directly next to head of top bunk so one person froze if it was on and the other person overheated if it wasn't. We confirmed we wanted an airport pick up but no one turned up.

DanyHouse

Florence, Italy

Jonathon is lovely and seems to really want to make sure guests enjoy their stay. He and his staff (Celeste) were very friendly and welcoming. Facilities here are pretty simple, rooms can be a bit noisy with the way the ensuite bathroom door doesn't block light/noise v well. Bunk beds are a bit wobbly but most beds are just regular singles. Kitchen is just fridge and microwave. Cutlery & crockery on request when you need it. Would be easier if there was some just available to use. No lockers

The Yellow

Rome, Italy

The Yellow is great. I enjoyed my stay here. They are close to Termini station which is very convenient. A bit of a walk into the historic centre but not too far and otherwise an easy bus ride. They have great lockers under bed, bunks are a bit creaky but fine, wifi is good, breakfast not included but it's cheap and good, loved the TV room / chillout space for getting away from the party when you wanted to. Everything is well organised; its a really good hostel.

Stray Cat Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey
80%

I enjoyed my stay here, the staff were great and really helpful with ideas and also helping me get to the airport when I was leaving. It's a funky hostel with lots of character. Has wifi but reception can be a bit hit and miss, especially the further you are from the front desk modem, generally ok in common area though. Rooms are clean and big, bathrooms are ok, not unclean just a bit old. It's good value for money and super convenient for the tram and walking to Taksim.

The Drunken Monkey Hostel

Zadar, Croatia
80%

Good hostel quite close to main bus station and a 20 min walk into old town. Has everything you need in terms of a hostel and the staff are friendly and welcoming. Can be a bit noisy if guests are drinking in the main stairway late at night but usually the staff stop this. Each bed has own locker and there are shared kitchen facilities plus food can be ordered in. Wifi is good and there are free PC"s to use. Staff give great info on the local area, where to go, what to see, where to eat/drink.

Riad Inna

Essaouira, Morocco
80%

This is a riad not a hostel so it's essentially a little hotel. There are no hostel type facilities but that's is expected. No breakfast included and no tea/coffee facilities even though their hostelworld profile says (or said) breakfast was included. Location is great, right in the old town. Wifi only works in the common area not in the rooms. Rooms are comfortable and clean.

Hostal Machin

Madrid, Spain
83%

The owner of this hostel was really helpful & even moved me to another room with a window facing out, rather than into the hall, as he had the space as we kind enough to do so. The hostel is clean & in a great location near Gran Via & 5mins from Sol. There's not much atmosphere for meeting people but the room was big, clean and tidy with everything I needed. Get a map from the host as he will talk you thru good walks to do. I felt very welcome & would stay again. Wifi reception was intermittent

Seville, Spain

Great pension, well looked after. Rooms are big and cleaned daily w fresh towels, beds made, bin emptied. Owners are lovely and helpful. Nothing was too much effort for them. Helped w discount access to the local gym, helped me get to train station when I left, helped me with where to go during my stay. These guys really take care of their place and care about your stay. Remember it's a pension not a hostel so don't expect great common area to hang out in etc. Would definitely stay here again.

Hostal Arroyo

Granada, Spain
60%

This is not a hostel, it's a pension. The only thing making it a hostel is that there is always someone at 'reception'. Reception is the family's living room with a counter window into the stairwell. The building is clean & the owners friendly & helpful but speak no English. Very little info about Grenada provided, certainly nothing like you get in a hostel (map explained etc). It's very simple, fine if that's what you want. No common area, no kitchen. Great terrace, no furniture so can't use it

Russafa

Valencia, Spain

Hostel is clean and spacious as far as hostel go. I was in a single room with shared bathroom but was given a twin room so had extra space which was nice! The owners of the hostel are very friendly and most helpful, even helping me call Renfe when I messed up a train ticket booking. Russafa is a little walk into the old city but it's not far and a good location overall. Not an especially social hostel for meeting people. Breakfast is good for hostel standards & tea/coffee always available.

Pension San Telmo

San Sebastian, Spain
89%

This pension is in a great spot in the Old City, close to everything. The owner is lovely and friendly, always cleaning and the place is very tidy. It's a pension so there are no breakfast/kitchen/laundry/common area facilities but the rooms are big, security is good, two bathrooms which is great. I would stay here again as I felt very welcome and the rooms are tidied every day which is nice. Can be noisy but that's part of being in the middle of the Old City where everyone goes for pinxtos

Choiseul Hotel

Bordeaux, France
71%

Choisel is ok. The staff are friendly and the room was fine (single room w shared bathroom). Breakfast not included but there are great nearby bakeries. Reception area is the common area that people use the wifi but it's otherwise not especially social. Shared bathroom is pretty basic (seems like the bathroom was an after-thought to the building) and is on 4th floor (one shower shared by all in hostel!) Wifi only available in the reception, which is very annoying as this is closed from 1-5pm.

Plug-Inn Boutique Hostel

Paris, France
63%

I have no other hostel in Paris to compare to but Plug Inn seemed to be TINY. The rooms are so small that there is barely enough room to move around let alone put luggage anywhere. Bunk beds are cheap and flimsy so you may be easily woken by your neighbour rolling over. Kitchen area downstairs, for breakfast, is really hot. The common area isn't really much of a social place but at least these is a space to sit out in. Wifi is good in rooms. Staff generally very helpful. It's ok but just tiny.
