X Hostel Bucharest, Bucharest, Romania

14th Jul 2016

Security is alright. The main door keeps getting propped open by staff making it pointless. Personal lockers only half work... Location is fine. Near a Metro stop and Old Town is walkable. Staff was friendly enough, but seemed more interested in hanging out with each other; judged my friend for being up late on his phone when he couldn't sleep as if it matters. Atmosphere was alright. Rooms were clean, but the showers smelled pretty strong. I little high cost IMO for average facilities.

Security is reasonable. Locked front door and large personal lockers. Location was fine; close to the central bus station and the few sights there are. Staff was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was lacking. There is a common room no one uses and most people seem to be working and want their own time in their beds; lots of non-travelers. Pretty clean, no major complaints. Good value for money. Facilities are nice, but ask for directions using the fancy shower. All in all, not a bad stay.

Not one of the better hostels I've stayed in. Security is lax. No locks until you get to the lockers (so anyone can walk in) and 24/7 reception includes sleeping at the desk. Location is good, close to restaurants and bars. Far from bus and train, but those are far from the good stuff anyways. Staff was night and day. One SUPER grumpy and almost rude; another SUPER helpful and nice. Atmosphere was a mixed bag. Rooms are clean, not the bathroom or kitchen. Beds were great.

Very solid hostel. Security is great: building locked, apartment locked and lockers. Location is good too: close to two Metro's, sites and cheap food (Puzata Hata). The staff was very friendly though sometimes a little TOO nice. Haha. The atmosphere is quiet and friendly so good for relaxing. Clean for the most part; trash overflows a bit much. Great value for money and solid facilities.

Really nice hostel and definitely would stay again. Security is pretty good. Have to be buzzed in and there are personal lockers in the rooms. Location is great. Close to the Old Town area and cheap food on two sides! (Zupata Hata) Staff was extremely friendly and VERY Helpful booking things. Atmosphere was friendly and quiet for a relaxed feel. Pretty clean, but the bathrooms got quite smelly. Great value for money and the facilities were really nice; the beds are so cool!

A very solid hostel choice. Would stay again for sure. Security is great with building, apartment and locker layers of security. Location is close to the circus and a few other sites to start your day as well as bar and food. Staff was very friendly. Atmosphere seemed chill and people were generally nice. Cleanliness was mostly great. Value for money for sure and facilities were inviting. Didn't use the kitchen. They will help you get a hotel voucher for visa free travel which is great & a must.

The Dancing Eesti was a reasonable hostel. For the price, in Old Town Tallinn, its pretty good. Security isn't great, but there are at least lockers for your stuff. Location in Old Town in central and great. The owner is nice and great to chat with. Atmosphere is a mixed bag. There's an attached bar, but it isn't crazy active. Cleanliness is a bit lacking, but its not filthy. Facilities are a work in progress. I'd stay again though.

Really nice hostel. Security is good with lockers and locked entry to the room areas though not the rooms. Location is in Old Town, so great. Only the bus station is far, but an easy bus ride or 15 minute walk. Staff is super nice and helpful. Free laundry is amazing! Atmosphere was friendly though not many activities or anything. Pretty clean, even the showers. Pretty good value for money especially compared to other hostels in the city. Facilities are nice, but there could be more to do.

Security was average. Location isn't too near much, but train station is 10 minutes walk and Forbidden City EXIT 20 minutes. Staff was friendly, but only one knew halfway decent English. Atmosphere was weak, they no longer offer hot water (which is odd in China) and they don't allow outside food or drink (even water) in the common area. No electricity the last day and they didn't bother to tell us when we checked in that was the case. Really messed with our plans as no SIM card. Don't recomm

Pretty nice hostel. Good location just off the beach-y area and near some nice tourist sites. 24/7 reception was very appreciated and they switched us to our own room for our one night there because we arrived late and they didn't want to disturb sleeping guests. Thoughtful. Facilities were comfortable and they have a bar. Security was average. Had lockers that could hold bags. Biggest downside was the cleanliness. Huge puddle in our bathroom and just a bit grimy. Skipped showering.

Overall, a solid hostel I would stay at again. WiFi was great and the rooms were comfortable. Even a soft blue light you can turn on at night to see, but doesn't disturb people. Great idea more hostels should use. Security is fine. Location is alright. Between two metro stops and near the beach. Near the bus to a prominent coastal temple too. The person running it is nice and helpful. Breakfast is generous. Pretty clean, but beware it is a shared shower area.

Security was average: locked front door and lockers available though seemingly limited. Location was in a lively area, but not near anything else. Staff was pleasant but a little uninterested I felt. Atmosphere didn't really exist. The shower was a little tight and didn't drain properly which was a bit annoying. Overflowed into the hallway outside as well. The bed was NOT COMFORTABLE. Could be different bed to bed, but mine was extremely lumpy and could feel the supports bars below.

Another solid Seoul hostel. Security was average with a front door lock and lockers. The location is nice because you can start a walking day of all the palaces from the hostel in mere minutes. The person working the desk was friendly and helpful, but the atmosphere otherwise was lacking. The showers were average cleanliness, but the rooms were great. No plugs at the beds, but a table in the dorm with plugs by it was convenient enough.

All in all, a solid hostel. The capsule dorms were not TRUE capsules though. Mine didn't have its own plug and no wall on one side so when the person below me was up late and had their light on, it was like daylight for me. Good security; lockers. Staff and atmosphere is great! Location isn't bad, but there is a TON nearby.

Yup, we are right next to everything that is Hongdae - bars, restaurants, shops. Sorry about your situation. When we first designed the beds, we were debating whether to put a wall on the end beds. If there was no wall, the person could use a bigger space. We will look into creating a solution where the end beds can have the bigger space and privacy too. Thank you for the feedback! - Jake

Overall, very solid choice and relatively good value for the money. Location is great. Near the Kiyomizu Temple where you can kick off a good day in Kyoto. Not too far from the subway or the main train station. Good food close by in my experience. Staff was friendly, but it seemed just a job for them. Atmosphere was alright, but I've seen better. Folks were friendly and there was a place to gather. Very clean. Facilities were nice and the beds pretty comfy. Lockers were a good size too. Secure.

For Japan, it is a pretty good value for your money (though AirBnb has better options for groups). Security is great as you get your own room. The location is close to Tennoji which is about all it has going for it (and a grocery store about 5 mins away). The staff was nice and VERY HELPFUL when I left my bag on a train (they called the help line and such). Atmosphere was neutral. There's an area to hang out, but no one using it. Pretty clean and average facilities.

Haha, you are the guy left a bag on the train! You are lucky! Thank you for staying with us. Hope to see you soon in next time. Don't leave your stuff on the train again :)

Not really a hostel. It's a "business hotel" (and that doesn't mean "love hotel"). Security is fine cause you have your own room, but the rooms are very bare bones. I had cigarettes burns in the linoleum floor. The bathroom was reasonable and the attached, um, kitchen (?) area wasn't great. NO ATMOSPHERE as it isn't a hostel. Front-entry staff member was nice and helpful. Location in a sketch (for Japan) neighborhood and only near the train. Average val for $. Stay here for a

All around pretty good hostel. The price could be a little cheaper even compared to similar hostels in Japan. Great staff. Security pretty good, but personal lockers won't fit bags (not a big deal, just noting it). Also, room doors not locked (though probably don't need to be). Close to local train, but not JR Rail Pass stop, so extra cost or walking required. Great atmosphere and VERY clean. Facilities were pretty nice as well. Loved the beds. Relatively easy commute into Osaka.

A very solid hostel. Only lacking in atmosphere for the most part. Security is 24-hour staffing + room key + locker. Staff is quite friendly and helpful with most things. Location is GREAT: near food, shopping and the subway. There is a place to hang and get food/drinks on the first floor, but I didn't eat/drink here. Seemed like people were chatting, but already knew each other. Pretty good value for money, but there is cheaper in China for the same. Facilities not lacking in much.

Solid hostel all around. The security included a 24-hour reception, tap to enter doors and large lockers in the rooms. The staff was pleasant and there was affordable food and a pool table to pass the downtime. The location wasn't SUPER, but if you're busing in, it's close. Taxis from the train are at least cheap. They offer a morning bus to the mountain that is a nice feature. 20 Yuan. Good atmosphere and great value for money. Very clean too. Really nothing to complain about.

The staff was helpful when an issue came up and the location is in a cool neighborhood and close to two Metro stations. Beyond that, not impressed with the hostel. Half the room lockers didn't work and the beds were quite uncomfortable. The room had no AC and got very hot and stuffy at night. Not much of an atmosphere. Showers only on the first floor, so you have to walk through the "restaurant/bar" to get to them. One toilet marked for women on 2nd floor. Compared to China, bad value for money.

Pretty great all around. Limited number of bathrooms seemed annoying, but had no issues with lines. Staff very friendly and better atmosphere than most hostels in Asia. Very clean and amazing value for money. There isn't much DIRECTLY by it, but it is a quick walk to the train station and RIGHT NEXT to a Metro station which you can take most tourist places of interest. Security was mostly good, but no "front door" security.

Security was a little lacking. While locked at night and staff on duty when open, I found the door open early when someone probably left even earlier and could wander the place at will... No lockers either. Staff was friendly, but the best one was the guy who's name I never got. Helpful and great at English. Not much atmosphere when I was there, but a conservative place to hang out. Pretty clean all around and good value for money. Easily reached by city bus and close to buses going out to park.

There are lockers under the bunks in each room (one per bed), but beyond that, not much security except a few unlocked doors. Location is decent. Food and drink and not far from the airport or downtown. The staff seemed nice and huge out with guests even. Nice breakfast options and not TOO small. Great atmosphere; people hanging out, pool, and pool table. Also good facilities. Not sure if the pool is open now, but seemed to be one behind the building. Pretty clean and good value for the money.

Atmosphere was just people int he lobby, but it was small and overcrowded. Cleanliness was fine. Had issues with fan spraying oil from being recently oiled, but they offered to switch our room.

The security was just one lock shared between different people for the dorms. This isn't a meaningful approach when sharing a room as far as security goes. They should get multiple keys made. Location wasn't near much, but one or two walkable restaurants. Taj Mahal wasn't crazy far either. Staff was nice, but seemed confused by my interest in security in a dorm room. Again, multiple keys needed. Cleanliness was average and value was fine as its cheap. Restaurant and roof top view.

Security was 24-hour reception and personal lockers in the rooms which is great. The location is close to the train and bus stations. Hard to be close to those AND the many forts. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. The common room had more people than many other Indian hostels and games, so that was nice. Pretty clean though small stains on the sheets. Great value for money and the facilities were nice too. FREE LAUNDRY which cannot be beat.

Security was a giant lock on your private room which means no one else has access. The location was an easy walk to the Fort and nearby temple, so very nice. Not much to eat nearby, but restaurant upstairs. The staff was nice enough, welcoming. No real atmosphere though there was a roof area to hang out (though not many people or much to do). Very good price especially for a private. BE SURE TO CHECK THE ROOM DETAILS though. Says AC, but its only some rooms.

Security is someone answering a locked door basically. If you're coming in late or flying out early, location is great; otherwise, is far from South Mumbai and not really close to the train either. The owner is nice, but seemed a bit overwhelmed/took a while to help everyone and seemed to lose track of what needed to be done. Atmosphere seemed friendly though the common area hard to hang around in (small). Not very clean. Wet floors in the bathrooms ALWAYS. Rooms scant. Average value for money.

Security was excellent with someone always at the door and layers of security after that. Location is good if you are looking to catch a bus or train; otherwise, look elsewhere. The staff was VERY helpful figuring out buses and very kind. Welcomed with a drink even (juice)! Atmosphere was non-existent even at breakfast really. However, breakfast was OUTSTANDING. Real food and lots to choose from. Value for money was average as its a solid hostel, but one of the most expensive in Colombo.

A solid hostel compared to another in the adjacent area. Security very good and location close enough to a green line station. The staff was uninterested in guests, but pleasant. The atmosphere was good during breakfast only it seemed. Pretty clean throughout and good value for money. Facilities weren't bad, but nothing to write home about. Definitely recommend this place though.

Security was fine. The location was close enough to the MRT, but besides Little India food, there's not much in the area. The staff seemed uninterested in guests. The atmosphere was quiet and solemn. Average cleanliness throughout except the bathroom where there seemed to be no ventilation and everything seemed wet everywhere all the time. A cheaper hostel for Singapore, but not sure it was worth the money as there are better places at the same rate. Room was alright. Bed a bit stained.

Security was fine, but it wasn't super close to anything of note except maybe the train to the airport. Staff were pleasant. The atmosphere was average. Like most Asian hostels, only at breakfast mostly. Could be cleaner. Mattresses not TOO bad. Good value for the money with average facilities. Good bread at breakfast.

Overall, fantastic hostel under MUCH BETTER management. Location is good, but a little confusing to get to and directions aren't great (new manager working on update). Staff (i.e. the new manager) is fantastic and friendly. The atmosphere, unlike most Asia hostels I've stayed in, was great; however, if you want to go to bed early (i.e. before 3 AM) be sure to ask to sleep toward the back. He'll move you during your stay if need be. Pretty clean cept the b-room. Facilities pretty nice.

Coded front door and locked room with lockers inside it. Location is okay. Close to train station, but quite far from the main night market. The staff was practically invisible. No real atmosphere. Just a place to stay. Mostly clean though the cramped bathroom/toilet/shower room is awkward. Reasonable value for money though you have to fix your own bed. Hate leaving shoes OUTSIDE out front. Some bunk are THREE levels high as well, so I hope you're not afraid of heights.

The security was alright with the front key code locked. Beyond that, nothing really except lockers only located on the main floor (rooms on the upper floors). Location is fine; close to food at night market and an MRT (metro/subway station). Staff is nice enough, but they seem content to hang out amongst themselves. Cleanliness left something to be desired in the bathroom and rooms. Value for money is average as it is the cheapest. Had to make my own bed and directions were weak. Get whats paid

View Property Reply

Thanks for your reviews for your first question: several quests told me that when someone check out early, they would be bother by the sound because some of them are rude and make loud noise.So that's why we decide to move the locker down. Second, we are sorry for the cleaness. We definitely check it when after cleaning. Third, I think people here can easily enjoy taking with each other, I think we have tried hard to make here easy to make friends. Have a good time , sir

The security is good with a front desk always staffed (I think). The location is as good as can be expected; easy access to the common buses. Staff is pleasant, but nothing special. Absolutely NO atmosphere; just a place to sleep with families and working adults. Cleanliness is good. Value for money is average though I think a bit pricey for what they offer. The facilities don't have much, but, for once, breakfast is more than just toast!

Security is very good with three layers between the outside and your bag. If you know you're staying in Phuket Town, then the location is considered good with only a 5 min walk to the main bus stop and 10 to the local bus stop. There's a number of great temples within 15-30 minutes walk radius as well. Staff is nice, but English is not fantastic (which is okay). Atmosphere is almost non-existent with hardly anyone choosing 2 stay in Phuket Town. Relatively clean 'cept the sheets. Overall, decent

Very good hostel. Security is pretty good except the one side entrance that's insecure. Location is great; close to many sites. Staff is relatively friendly and helpful. They have events many of the nights including free fries on Friday and I met many great folks here. Things are mostly clean though the aircon areas still allow mosquitos in which is VERY annoying. Good value for money and decent facilities. If they can seal off the aircon areas better, they'd have an even better rating.

Not the best hostel ever. Despite the look of it on the map, its near a good number of food places and with jeepneys everywhere, it is cheap and not too long to go to the pier or other places. The bathroom was a bit dirty feeling. Not much in the way of facilities. Staff using the TV for themselves to hang out basically. They were nice, but sometimes a bit uninterested in guests. Atmosphere was non-existent. No screens on the window sin the room and even with aircon, mosquitos got me at night.

Nothing superb about this hostel, but it has a good price point. Security is lacking with only lockers to protect your stuff. Staff was friendly. Location is close to the airport which is a good. There's not much in Manila to be close to anyways (besides Old Town). Atmosphere was good. With more people, maybe better. Could've been cleaner, especially the kitchen. Value for Money is worth it and the facilities have places to chill, work, watch TV and even foosball. Beds comfy enough. Fans work.

Security could've been improved with locks on the room doors. Someone always on duty though. Location is by restaurants and bars but FAR from Old Manila. Given everything is hard to get to, its not good to be far from the sites. Staff is very nice, helpful and generous. Atmosphere is good at breakfast. They try to make breakfast a little more special, but I prefer endless toast and toppings because I left quite hungry given the limits. Average value for money, a little high. Facilities alright.

A solid hostel. Location was great being right next to KL Sentral, the hub for local and distant travel. Security was pretty good, but locks on the doors would be better. Staff was generally friendly. Atmosphere was good for meeting people, but there weren't many activities going on as seems normal in SE Asia. Pretty clean except the bathroom sometimes. Toilet. Good value for the money for sure. Facilities have laundry machine, but dryer was pathetic. Had to hang dry. Cafe is nice. Food decent.

Location was great; best part. Security was solid as well with swipe cards. The staff seemed a little uninterested in guests; that's disappointing in a hostel. The atmosphere was mostly non-existent and there were too many working people and families. Not a great option if you're looking to hang out with people in a common area. Cleanliness was average. Walls moldy. Should fix that and repaint. Rooms were awkwardly arranged such that there was little room. Upstairs was scorching hot at times.

Security was great with two security points to get to rooms. Lockers in the rooms as well. Location wasn't spectacular, but taxis are so cheap it barely matters. There's a few nice places to wander and eat nearby. Atmosphere was lacking; no one seemed interested in hanging out and chatting or playing cards anywhere in particular. In general, that doesn't seem to be a thing in SE Asia. Relatively clean and a very friendly staff. I'd recommend this place and would stay again.

Security could be better. The doors to the rooms weren't even locked. Small lockers for valuables though. Staff was great and there was a lot of socializing in the front area so good atmosphere. Cleanliness was average for SE Asia, but felt uncomfortable at times. Facilities were fine with privacy curtains around the beds and a kitchen. WiFi was relatively stable. All in all, work can be done, but a solid hostel.

VERY clean, staff VERY friendly and helpful and the security is great (though I wish the elevator was locked. The atmosphere isn't great cause no one hangs out in the common area and it IS true that is far from the action. Even with the free bus (once a day to the beach, twice to the airport), it is still a hassle. Great place to recuperate from the "elements" of Indonesia (heat, humidity, dirty). Good value for money and facilities are quite nice.

Thanks for staying with us. Soon we will install a partition door into the aisle of the bedroom's area to build more security, the access is only with key card - it will accommodate your concern to have the elevator locked. See you in another journey. Thanks for being Bali Caps' friend.

Security was average with only lockers to lock stuff and none on the doors to rooms or the entrance. The location is relatively walkable to the main center of Ubud. Staff seemed nice and decent enough at English. The atmosphere seemed like it could mean meeting new people, but everyone kept to themselves when I was there. Not very clean. Bathrooms were a bit dirty though I might say average for Indonesia. Different place. Average value for money. Facilities had a pool, bar and food, so good.

NOT REALLY FREE WIFI! Only 30 minutes which I think is misleading. They should change their marketing. Great security and 24 hour staffing. Location a 15-20 minute walk from South Bank but area has cheap food and places to go out. Staff was a mixed bag; they didn't all seem fully aware of their own events and their time, and caused me and a ton of others I spoke to to miss things like free food which every backpacker knows is key! Atmosphere was great for meeting people. Cleanliness also great!

View Property Reply

Hi there! We recently changed our free Wifi policy as when we gave free internet the whole time we got a lot of negative feedback about the speed and that it was negative for the atmosphere. Now you get 30 minutes of high speed wifi every day (not just 30 minutes for your stay) and we have halved cost of the paid internet in the last year so it is just $2 for 24 hours or $10 for a week of unlimited super fast awesomeness! Hopefully we will see you again soon!!!

Security was average. Not 24hr reception, so can just walk in and back to the rooms which had handles that seemed flimsy and didn't always lock fully it seemed. Location was fine for the small city and near the beach and the staff was welcoming and picked me up late even without request. Atmosphere was a bit quiet though perhaps that's the city. Mostly hostel workers really. Cleanliness was not great with the hostel worker leaving his suit in the shower, sand everywhere and mattresses stained.

Hi there, we don't have a 24hr reception just as any other hostel in this safe small and friendly town. Anyway to make our customers feel even safer we provide lookers in every room. It's unfortunate that you didn't enjoy our chilled atmosphere, we love the nature around us and we find it so relaxing! None of our staff sleep in the dorms as we have separate staff rooms, so whoever was in your room, was not a staff member. Cheers

Wasn't a particularly outstanding (bad or good) hostel. Location required a 5-10 minute walk to any sort of food or drink and the atmosphere wasn't quite conducive to really meeting people. People kept to themselves. Security was only at the door to your room which seemed flimsy; at least had lockers in the rooms. Staff were fine, but sometimes unhelpful or unwilling to help I felt. Storage after you check out costs if you didn't book a tour through them; not very hostel-like. Facilities average

All in all, a solid hostel, but wouldn't rate it top notch. Security was good, but easy for things to be left open. Location wasn't too far from the beach (among other hostels). Was pretty clean except the bathroom in my room was rank even after being cleaned. A pool table, benches, pool and movie/TV room made for a lot of space to hang out, but would be nice to have somewhere to sit at a computer (that wasn't a bench in the sun). All in all, would recommend for sure.

Cleanliness was average. The amount of sand on the floor in my room was a bit much. Had a pool. Have to pay for luggage storage after you check out. Hate that. Very against the spirit of hostels.

Nothing excellent the hostel. The location is far from the beach and the atmosphere is definitely lacking. Room was greatly in need of a vacuum it didn't seem to have gotten in days. Staff was nice and security is relatively good. Value for the money is average and while there was a restaurant downstairs, there wasn't much else besides the kitchen. :/ Also, the deals advertised have expired...9 months ago. They need to be taken out of the pictures. All in all, luke warm recommendation.

The front door was propped open late. The bag "storage" during the day was the bags sitting out in the open in an office the owner occasionally stepped out of. Location is MARKED WRONG on Hostelworld which meant extra travel time; however, area had a lot of good restaurants and bars. Owner wasn't in the office during office hours and took 15 minutes to track down. Didn't answer posted phone number. Cleanliness was a little lacking with carpeting over a hole in the floor (yes...).

Though others could let people in, the owner was pretty much always there, so relatively secure. The latest check-in is 10PM (though he can be a bit flexible); however, it means no late nights. Location is relatively close to the pedestrian areas and the museums. Atmosphere is lacking; the owner is nice, but it doesn't feel like a hostel to meet new people (more a place to sleep). Mostly clean throughout. Value for the money is average. Beds are a hit or miss and internet is poor at best.

Great hostel. Main entrance is buzzed open at desk only + there's a security guy always hanging around. LOCKERS ARE IN THE ROOMS except for the tents which have lockers elsewhere (some reviews said they didn't exist; they are flat out wrong). Staff are friendly for the most part; seem a little disinterested in the guests. Atmosphere is great; lots of cards, drinks, and meeting new people in the common space. Pretty clean throughout. No kitchen, but the "restaurant" food is great. Solid hostel.

Staff were nice and welcoming. Atmosphere allowed meeting new people, but not spectacular (rated: Good). There were two showers and they didn't feel clean; never warm water. Pretty average value for the money and the facilities in general were pretty average. AC run at night.

Security was fine. Checked at the front door and keys to rooms. The location was central to many places you can go, but not the best neighborhood by any stretch of the imagination. Staff and Atmosphere were great. Pretty clean, but a little smelly at times. Showers were a little inconsistent on temperature, but tolerable. Overall, facilities were nice. Need better wireless signal and speed.

The security was fine & the location was on the outskirts of the old city (which is good). The staff were average (friendly but didn't feel like family like some places). The atmosphere I rated Poor first, but up'd to Average, to be fair, since I didn't spend much time there. Bathrooms & my linens were DIRTY & my bedside desk (sticky stains and dirt). The cost was way above what I was getting. Facilities: the light to my room was outside my locked door (weird) and my room felt like a jail cell.

All in all, probably the second best hostel I've stayed in. Security was great as was the front door staff. The location was only SLIGHTLY outside the main old city, but not terrible to get there (5-10 minute walk); if you're gay, its right in that area, so short walk to go out until 5AM like the other Spaniards. Atmosphere was great/amazing and the bathrooms (in the rooms) felt VERRRY clean as was everything else. Definitely got my bang for my buck. Also, facilities were great; lots of options.

The security was fine; the front door only opened via the front desk and the rooms had locks and lockers. The location was a bit far from the main attractions, but only a 15 minute walk (if you didn't get lost...which was due to the city, not the hostel). The staff was great as was the atmosphere with sangria (free) and dinner (cheap) every night. The bathrooms weren't the cleanest I've seen. Value for my money was definitely acceptable and the facilities were decent. I would recommend it.

All in all, I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely recommend it to other people. I rated it "Excellent" in everything except Location, Atmosphere and Facilities which were all "Good". Location is only because it wasn't in the heart of everything (but close). Atmosphere was Good because, while there was a common area, it didn't seem many people were using it. Facilities was also Good because, beyond rooms and one common space, there didn't seem much else. Very clean, great value, great staff

All in all, while I did think my stay here was pleasant enough, it isn't one of the better/best hostels I've stayed at. The security and location were good, but the atmosphere was almost non-existent and the owner was neutral. The bathrooms weren't disgusting but not super either. Overall, I give the hostel an "Average" rating.

Everything was pretty good except the atmosphere as there was much as far as hostel-bonding and meeting new people. Close to train station and Metro, staff was nice and accommodating (except for they wouldn't hold stuff past 1:30 PM). Would recommend in general. Solid enough.

Security was alright (entry door never closed all the way), so room lock was only layer of security (no lockers). Location was pretty good (close to Rialto and 10 mins to going out area). Staff was fine, but not spectacular. Atmosphere was absent; same as hotel. Cleanliness was alright. Not super clean, but not noticeably dirty.

Make sure you have the address as it is not labeled on the outside of the building/can be hard to find. Security-wise, it is pretty secure except if you're on the ground floor, there's a little window people can open from the outside and look in (they can't GET in). Location is mostly good (close to the bus hub), but ,as stated, a little hard to find. Staff is great. Atmosphere is not better than a hotel really. Cleanliness is lacking in bathroom. Value is average and facilities were acceptable.

The location (simultaneously close to the train station as well as the downtown scene) and security (multiple layers) were great. The service and atmosphere were fine, but nothing special (no complaints though). The biggest downsides were the facilities/cleanliness (the bathroom in my 10 bed room was not that great and the shared bathroom on the first floor was filthy), and the value for money (record high hostel prices...I know its Nice which is close to Monaco, but lower the prices a bit).
