DayTripper Hostel, Tulum, Mexico

12th Apr 2017

A great hostel for a great price. Staff are fantastic and make the stay much more welcoming. Security is great with the front door locked late, someone always on duty, and working lockers for everyone. Location is pretty good, but a little off the main drag. Atmosphere gets good late, but they make sure you are upstairs if its late to allow people to sleep. Pretty clean, but could use another sweep or mop in the afternoon. Couldn't give more than 3/5 for facilities cause WiFi is TERRIBLE (slow).

Not overly impressed and not sure I'd stay again. Security is reasonable with lockers available, but most are outside and half of them broken. No locks otherwise. Location is fine; close enough to the small city's downtown. Staff seemed neutral to guests. Atmosphere seemed average for a hostel; lots of people chilling together. Could DEFINITELY improve in the cleanliness department; disgusting bathroom and rooms below average. Not great value for money.

Hostel Yaxha, Flores, Guatemala

Really great hostel in Flores. Security is great with lockers and people on duty until they lock up everything. Room doors lock too which seems rare in Latin America. Great location though not hard on a small island. Staff is very friendly and most speak English. Not really a common room because of the restaurant, so not sure about atmosphere. Pretty clean all around. Good price for the city. Three-story bunk beds might bother some. Able to stream video with WiFi. I would stay again for sure.

A decent hostel and I would stay again. Security is fine; true lockers could be yanked open, but they're a deterrent. Plugs inside too for the super secure-minded. Location is in a safer area and in walking distance to food and drinks even at night. I didn't meet Marco really, but the other host, a woman, asked a bit too many questions... Good atmosphere from the guess. Relatively clean (floors a bit dirty). Price seems a little high in comparison to other hostels in the area.

Definitely would stay again. Security is good with someone usually at the front door and lockers in the room. Yes, they're plastic, but they're no more/less secure than wooden ones or otherwise. They're a deterrent like any others. Location is great and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere: can meet people, but not a party hostel. Pretty clean though sometimes the facilities are setup such that some bathrooms naturally stay messy. WiFi is GREAT; streamed video on my day off

A nice solid hostel outside the normal "tourist/hostel" area. Location is easy to get to; great restaurants and bars close by (Centro Trio Musical Restaurant!). Staff is friendly. Good atmosphere. Not too party, but not quiet either. Good value for $ considering its one of the cheapest ones. Beds are comfortable and the lockers fit your valuables. WiFi was decent, but streaming could be spotty. Lots of TV channels though. Cleanliness was my only major gripe. Hair EVERYWHERE on the "clean" sheets

Good hostel for the money. Security is great with lockers and staff letting in guests. Great location near food and bars as well as plenty of sights. Prefer the second building's location as the first site has a ton of unsavory characters out front at night and it was quiet at the second location. Staff is very nice and most speak a little English. Atmosphere is friendly without being a party. Pretty clean for the most part. Beds are comfortable and rooms have enough space. Would stay again!

The Pelican Larry Hostel, Cali, Colombia

20th Mar 2017

A pretty average hostel. Security isn't amazing with only lockers. Anyone could walk in as the front desk is often not occupied. Location is close to food and a safe enough neighborhood, but not near anything of note. Staff were nice, but only half know some English. Atmosphere was quiet, but friendly. Relatively clean. Decent value for money being one of the cheaper places in town. Facilities were average and there were mosquitos buzzing about.

Hi !! Thanks for your review, it help us to improve everyday. We are really sorry that you felt that the security was not as good as you expected, but the front desk is not in charge of security, they are there just to help the guest with information and activities, the security is controlled by cameras surveillance, and the hostel is located in one of the most safe neighborhoods of the city. It was our mistake that we didn't tell you that we are at 10 min walking to the downtown, parque del gato, The Ermita church, best bars of the city and most of the iconic places of Cali. We will take notes of your review and make changes so people can feel more safe in our hostel and be more informed about the location of the hostel and how to move around Cali. We really thank you for the feedback. Regards, Karol

Mogens Pod Hostel, Quito, Ecuador

16th Mar 2017

One of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed at. Security is great with giant lockers and someone always manning the front desk letting people in. Location is close to bars and restaurants (though more touristy), but far enough to be quiet as well as close to two main bus lines that go north or south. Easy walk to historic district. Staff were friendly. Atmosphere was good, but a little quiet; there is a restaurant. Pod beds are great. WiFi was usually good, but inconsistent at times. SO CLEAN.

A pretty good hostel. With 24 hour reception controlling the door and lockers, security is great. Pretty close to the center of the historic district as well as a few sights up in the hills. The staff were generally helpful and nice. Good atmosphere: not too crazy, but not quiet either; met a lot of people. Pretty good value for the money. Facilities were mostly good, but some beds had better storage, access to an outlet and so on. Biggest downside was cleanliness; dirty floors and bathrooms.

There were large lockers, but otherwise, any one could walk into practically any part of the hostel. By the train station and 3 minutes to the buses. Staff were helpful and welcoming. Chill to match the town itself. Seemed pretty clean especially considering the location. Pretty affordable compared to some other HW listings. Decent facilities especially if you like a large locker.

1st Mar 2017

Decent hostel though unsure I'd stay again reason being you CANNOT stay past check-out even to just use WiFi or sit there reading a book. That's not a hostel spirit to me. Good security with lockers fitting medium-sized bags. Decent location; can walk to most things. Staff is nice, but their English is almonst non-existent (not a complaint, just be aware). Chill atmosphere for the most part. Could be a little cleaner. Beds are decent, but limited bathrooms.

Hello man: Thanks for your comments. I think the best hostel spirit should be free but unfortunately we can not ... we will ask our providers to stop charging us for everything and we will see if we can make this hostel free. At the moment checking out our hostel is the moment you leave us and we miss you a lot. You can buy a cheap check out late and continue enjoying our company until 22.00 pm. Anonymous man you are nice, but your Spanish is nonexistent (it's not a complaint, just keep it in mind) ;-) "Hostel spirit" Many many thanks for your comments, shame we will not see you again!

A solid hostel where I'd stay again. Security is great: lock on front and room door + large locker per person. Located in the middle of EVERYTHING. Staff weren't rude, but seemed uninterested in most guests. Good atmosphere fostered by events like free dinner, etc. Lacking on cleanliness: dirty bathrooms and really dusty floors in the rooms. Pretty good val for $ considering other options. Nice premises. Rooms aren't hot in the summer; try Buenos Aires and then come back and compare. Haha.

FIRST, AC NOT included. Description DOESN'T say this. Shocked to learn after I booked specifically expecting AC for HUMID Buenos Aires. EVERY hostel on HW I've ever stayed at that lists AC in amenities includes it EVEN if it isn't technically in the "free" section; very misleading. Security was lock on front & room doors + average lockers. Location central. Staff were nice. Atmosphere was chill, but welcoming. Bathrooms dirty and don't drain well. Rooms death hot. Inaccurate exchange rate.

23rd Feb 2017

Compay is a comfortable hostel where I would stay again. Though I was quite ill there, I found it comfortable. Security is pretty good with lockers and a front door only unlockable from inside. Decent location; easy local bus from the main station to get there. Staff were very nice and the one on duty when I checked in asked how I was on occasion. Atmosphere seemed friendly and out-going (though a bit clicky). Lacked a bit in cleanliness (AC unit flooded room in the night). That said, there's AC

Average hostel. Security seemed a bit lacking with just lockers and nothing else between outsiders and any loose items. Location was close to the beaches and the hand. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Atmosphere seemed decent (though the guests when I stayed there didn't understand the hostel concept). Could've been cleaner. A little pricy for what you got. Facilities were alright. They use a 31:1 Peso:USD rate which is out of date and a bit scammy...

A decent hostel though security was a little lax and atmosphere wasn't quite there. I could've easily walked straight into any room without anyone or any lock stopping me. If it weren't for the limited lockers in the rooms, I'd give this the lowest rating. Location: close to the bus station (and therefore transport to the falls). Staff were friendly. Pretty cleaned it seemed. Decent value for money, but should be cheaper comparatively. Had a pool, but not super clean (cleaned the morn I left).

A pretty good hostel. Security was good with a locked front and room door as well as lockers under the beds. Decent location; can catch the bus to the falls and airport just 3 minutes walk. Staff was pretty friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was great. Free drink at 20:00 brings people together. Cleanliness was a bit lacking ESPECIALLY the kitchen...yikes! Decent value for money with nice enough facilities. AC in the rooms and beds comfortable.

A really nice hostel in Rio. Security is great with someone always at the desk to buzz people in and security lockers. Location is decent; easy to walk to Botafogo or catch a bus anywhere (or Metro). Staff is really nice. Atmosphere was pretty friendly and the staff made this possible. Pretty clean, but a bit dirty on the floors in the rooms sometimes. Pretty good value for money, but more in the middle of the pack on cost. Facilities, mainly bathrooms, need work. Beds are decent.

Jared, thanks for the review. You did it right, that's exactly what we are improving here - faciltiies and bathrooms. We just created a external lounge where it was the old garage and where it was our old warehouse, we opened it to put some more tables and a bar. In a few days, we'll also have a pool at the social area instead of a fossball table. The bathrooms are in development. As the new team is managing the hostel it's been just 2 months, there is a lot of things to do everywhere. Painting, tubing, lights, cameras (we installed 4 new HD cameras) showers (we changed all the showers last week) etc. Hope to have you here with us again to see what we are doing to get better =) - Leo Tarta

A simple hostel. Good security (door fob, key for room, and lockers). Location is good for transport as well as walking to Camden Market, but there aren't many sites immediately close. Staff was nice. Atmosphere was lacking, but not bad. Cleanliness seemed fine throughout. Was a bit pricy for what it offered. Each bed had a light and an outlet in my room. HUGE DOWNSIDE: Heating is practically non-existent and very cold.

Generator was a pretty nice hostel and though I paid a cheap rate for my one night, the prices are normally triple the cost and I don't think its good value for the money. Security is good: keycards and lockers. Location is decent: close to King's Cross and other public trans. Staff were pleasant. Atmosphere was lively in the common spaces. Very clean everywhere ESPECIALLY the bathroom. Facilities were pretty comprehensive. However, other hostels like this a block or two away for at least the $.

All in all, a solid hostel where I would stay again. Security is great with lockers and key card access at three points. Location is close to Tube, but not many sights. Staff is great; I had to move beds in the middle of the night due to an unbearable sleep apnea snorer (literally no one else in the 10-bed room was sleeping) and they found a way to accommodate. Atmosphere is a little stale with the bar at their sister hostel. Pretty clean and great beds with individual plugs and shelves.

I'm not sure if I've EVER given a perfect 10 on Hostelworld, but this place deserves it in my opinion. While the experience was helped by the fact all the other guests were awesome, the hostel is fantastic. Security is good with a secured front door and lockers. Location is right in the medina and everything is pretty walkable. The staff are absolutely awesome; go to the hammam if you are feeling adventurous. Clean and STUNNING property that looks like the pictures. Breakfast is delicious.

Thanks a million for the sterling review, this is what we aim for with all our guests and we are more than excited you would give us a perfect 10 and loved the secure location, the internal security, the location, the cleanliness, the beauty of the Riad and the delicious breakfast, aswell as the fact we attract pretty rad clients!

This is a good, but not great hostel. Security is fine; someone inside has to open the door though if it isn't the owner, you really don't know who you're letting in. Not enough lockers in each room. Location is superb. Staff is mostly good, but there are a lot of people who "work" there which gets confusing. Decent atmosphere. Seemed mostly clean including the bathrooms. Good value for money and the terrace is nice. Bathrooms on first and bedrooms on second floor is a little annoying.

A very good hostel. Security was great with lockers in the room, card keys for each room and a receptionist at the main desk. Location is FANTASTIC; close to bars and food as well as the Old City. Staff were great and extremely helpful/knowledgeable. Atmosphere was great; I didn't participate in the activities, but they had many and they seemed well attended. Mostly clean though the bathrooms NEED to be clean more often. Pretty good value for money overall though a little high. Would stay again.

Not an impressive hostel. Security is weak with no lock between your bed and the outside world. There are lockers, but that's it and they are small. Location isn't great' far from anything and a bit sketchy when arriving late. Staff was the bright spot; friendly and helpful on check-in. Not much atmosphere and cleanliness was a little below or around average. Other options would be better value. My room shared a window with reception and was a bit of a bother when trying to sleep.

Sorry to hear you didnt enjoy it here. We share a feeling of safety here with no bad people allowed. We are alternative and you can read about that everywhere. Maybe better for you to go for the more expensive city center hostels next time. Best.

Quite a nice hostel. Security is pretty good; not a place many people are just going to wander up or into and rooms lock. Location isn't great; lots to eat, Metro close and so on. Staff is very friendly. The tours are typical tourist prices, but if that's fine with you, they're happy to help book. Decent atmosphere; good conversation and place to chill. Pretty clean and saw them do a deep clean on the bathroom, so it isn't neglected. WiFi can be quite flaky, but not horrendous. Good value.

A pretty good hostel. Biggest concern was security. Despite the listing, there are NO security lockers. That needs to be changed. Upgraded to a private room instead. Location isn't terrible (10 minute walk from train station), but not central either. Lively Television street nearby. Staff is WONDERFUL, helpful and friendly. Nice atmosphere and space to meet people. Clean especially compared to Egyptian standards. GREAT value for money. Facilities were nice.

This was my second time staying here. It's a no frills hostel with a decent atmosphere. Only place to hang out is in the bar area (if busy, there's nowhere quiet). The bathrooms are a little awkward, but not terrible. The beds are fine, but nothing special. Lockers in the rooms (though small) and a lock on the sleeping area and rooms means good security. Staff's very nice and a good place to stay before a train or bus to Stansted from King's Cross.

Neat building with awesome staff. When I had a problem with my locker being in use (not the hostel's fault), they just moved me to another room that was nicer! Rooms individually locked with lockers, but front door is easy to get in without being checked. Pretty close walk to King's Cross and lots of buses go by to various locations. Seemingly good atmosphere at breakfast, but no great common space IMO (beyond the bar). Could've been cleaner; ensuite bathroom shower splattered the entire floor..

Staff were great and the location is central. Security at the entrance wasn't great, but beyond that, dorms were individually accessed with a key card and had big individual lockers. Atmosphere seemed nice, but I was only there a night; place to eat and drink probably was good for meeting people. Pretty clean. Facilities were mostly good but on the new second floor, I don't think all bathrooms had hot water cause mine didn't work, but my friend next door said his was fine.

A really nice hostel with extremely fair rates especially compared to advertise themselves as nicer but are not. Pool was a good size for the hostel. Security was taken seriously and lockers available for valuables. Easy to walk into town for groceries, but need a taxi to get to the falls from anywhere in Livingstone (i.e. not held against hostel). Staff were fantastic and very nice. Good atmosphere and spaces for meeting people. With the bar under construction, they offered free dinner! Clean!

Overall, not impressed. Security was strange with one key per shared room. Beware wandering outside the hostel as you can get robbed (it happened when I stayed there). Location is a bit far from anything else except other lodging places so isn't isolated, but not private. Staff was nice (tried to help the girl who got robbed). Atmosphere was relaxed and people seemed willing to talk in the shared area. Sand everywhere is a TERRIBLE idea and the mosquito nets are bad; eaten alive as I sweat alot

Security was good with lockers in the rooms. Nice location; walkable to shops and restaurants as well as not too far from the Parthenon. Staff was nice though a little shy/to themselves. Atmosphere was pretty lacking, but not bad. Clean enough, but could've been a little better. Good value for money and the facilities were acceptable for sure. I got a stomach infection upon arrival in Greece and this wasn't a terrible place to deal with it. Haha.

Good atmosphere and staff but the rooms are barren and the bathrooms a little dirty. The wifi died multiple times and weak in the rooms. They have activities which is nice but to me they seem a little pricey for hostels. Close to the station but a slight walk to sightseeing. Security was great and included lockers.

Nice place that didn't suffer in any category beyond cleanliness. Bathrooms were a bit grimy and always seemed wet. Staff were fantastic and the location was right in the main area with easy walking access to a variety of sites. Good security at various levels (including individual lockers under the beds). Atmosphere was pretty good and it was reasonable value for money compared to other places in Portugal. GREAT breakfast with lots of juices to choose from (my personal bias there a bit...haha).

First, had to deal with a bed bug incident here and it was only handled halfway decently. They told everyone in the room at the time, but not those not there, so we were forced to find another place to sleep (as the hostel was full) at 1:30 AM when we went to sleep. The staff member who came at 2AM was a star at calling a ton of places to make the process quicker to be fair. They let us do laundry the next day for free (but screwed up the settings so it took almost 8 hours...). Beds overrated.

Overall, a pretty good hostel. Though my glasses were stolen here (not the hostel's fault, but WHO DOES THAT?! ), it did feel secure with lockers, key card access and 24-hour reception checking stay cards. Staff was great especially in exhausting all ways to find where the glasses might be. :( Location is quite central. Atmosphere was a bit lacking and there were a LOT of school children there. Pretty clean. One big downside was TERRIBLE WiFi and not in the rooms unless you pay extra.

Security was great with large lockers and key card access to rooms. Location was pretty central for what you'd want to see in the city. Staff seemed friendly but not overly so. Atmosphere seemed pretty good and there were events too which is great. Cleanliness was definitely lacking and the bathroom literally smelled very bad at all times. Pretty good value for the money. WiFi was acceptable and the beds had curtains which is a nice plus. Plugs 'by' the beds as well (string cord through a hole)

A solid hostel. Though the staff seemed relatively uninterested in the guests, most everything else was pretty good. Beds are a bit creaky, but comfortable. Facilities in general feel a little rundown, but not dingy. Good security with wristbands used for access. Close to a ton of stuff. Atmosphere was there if you wanted to meet people especially at breakfast. Relatively clean, but occasionally not. All in all, would stay again.

A nice hostel in Bilbao. Besides location, its a pretty good hostel. One upside is its relative proximity to the bus station. There are lockers and key cards to get in, so its secure. The bathroom could stand to be a little cleaner, but it wasn't gross. Staff was very friendly and breakfast was generous and more than just toast (though I love toast). There were people in the common space, so you could socialize if you wanted though I didn't see much. Value pretty good. Would stay again!

Pretty average hostel across the board. Security is codes on the doors with lockers in the rooms. Location is a bit far from the Tube though there are a few buses out front. Nothing of note nearby though unless you're taking the train or bus which are close (and why I stayed here). Staff seemed mostly uninterested, but pleasant. Didn't seem to be much atmosphere though there was a bar. Breakfast seemed good though I left without time to enjoy. Could've been a little cleaner.

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to hear you weren't totally happy with our hostel and the location. It's true that we are located in a quiet zone but victoria stations is only 10 minutes' walk and Buckingham palace is 20 minutes walk. We are also located near the Thames and on the other side you can find the lovely Battersea Park, not to mention all of the nice pubs around here! We know it's hard to know where to go, but our staff is always more than happy to direct to the best places to visit! We hope next time you get to see more! Have a great day.

Average hostel. Facilities were alright, but making the beds was tricky w/setup in the 10-bed. Everything seemed constructed recently though not poorly. No character to any of it though. Price was a little high; it was Saturday, but the room wasn't even packed and it was October but they still raised the price for that night. Pretty clean though one shower leaked like crazy and flooded the floor. Security is great though and the staff is very nice. I'd probably stay again; not my 1st choice.

Security was fine with two doors requiring a key card between the front door and you. THERE ARE LOCKERS BUT THEY ARE NOT INCLUDED. The listing does not say this. It is 1.5 Pounds per night per locker. Because of this, not great value for money as you have to tack on the extra. Staff was either overwhelmed or uninterested in helping.Location was close to two Tube stations and pubs. Pretty no atmosphere except at breakfast. Facilities are average but curtains on beds is nice.

Hello! Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your stay at our hostel. Please note that all of our staff is highly trained in customer service and always happy to help guests with any enquiry or problem they might be having. Also, in all of the websites, in which it is possible to make a booking at our hostel, there is clearly written about our extra charges for some extra services, like the use of the locker. The reason why we have some extra charges for some extra services is to avoid increasing our room prices, which are very cheap considering the central location of our hostel. We hope your next stay will be better. Kind Regards from the Smart Hostels Team

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was nice with a bar area and people hanging out. Saw a movie on once when I was returning from going out. Pretty good value for money but it was October. Facilities were mostly nice, but showers had lines in the morning and they were a bit cramped and dirty.

Mixed bag hostel. More hotel than hostel at times; little to no atmosphere beyond roommates. There's a bar, but it feels like its another entity from the hostel (and may be). Location was a bit far from train and bus stations as well as the city center, so average marks there. Staff seemed nice, but relatively uninterested in guests. Housekeeping came knocking at 9AM though check-out was 11. Everything was clean except I found a tiny bug in my bed...not sure if it was a bed bug though... :|

Not a bad hostel. Location is close to museums and restaurants. Security is good as well with three layers between the outside and your bag. Staff seemed nice, but barely interacted with them. Atmosphere was a bit lacking. The bathroom was the "shower and toilet next to each other" situation which I personally hate, so lower marks on cleanliness. Pretty good value for money though the facilities were a bit boring.

Don't recommend. Linen extra $; zero atmosphere. Cheap but didn't see other backpackers. A lot of temporary living for locals or the like it seemed. Have check-in times but aren't there for them.

Overall, a good hostel, but not typical. A lot of families and younger groups (like seemed under 18), so there's a lot of kids running around being immature and loud. Security is good. Lockers for everyone (bring padlock). Location is pretty to start your own walking tour to most of the main stuff. Staff was great. There was some confusion on available beds in my first room and I had to move the first night, but they immediately had a solution and gave me free brekkie! Clean and cheap compared.

Pretty solid minus the atmosphere. Great security and outstanding location. Compared to other Prague hostels, reasonable price surprisingly (especially if you look at weekend versus weekday rates). The staff was pleasant, but not the most outstanding. Mainly worked the desk, but politely. Some common spaces, but there isn't a community vibe to the place. Chance to meet cool people in the rooms though as always. Generally clean all around. Facilities in good shape with reasonable amenities.

I've had a lot of back pain since sleeping there and no other likely cause.

A very nice stay. You have your own room, so security is fine as long as you lock it. You're so secluded it doesn't really matter anyways. Close walk to a few restaurants. Too far to walk to the Park, but they will drive you from the same price as the bus which is great for getting in at 7 AM. On that note, staff is great and friendly. Not a hostel, but atmosphere was calm and quiet which is good for B&B. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Good value for money. Affordable in comparison to area.

First, hostel is NOT where the map shows it. Apparently, they have 5-6 locations they take you after you check in. Mine was up a giant hill about 10 minutes away. Not all locations have security lockers or AC despite the listing saying they exist. "Just lock the dorm door." I was told as a substitute. Staff was average but not honest in their listing. At least there were nice guests. Extremely disgusting bathroom even as hostels go (1 bathroom for 24 guests). Room also dirty. Don't stay here.

A well-rounded hostel. Security is solid with the front door being locked and large individual lockers. Location is fantastic being between the lively Old Town and necessarily-to-visit bus station. Staff is pretty nice. The atmosphere was okay. They have tours, but outside that, there isn't much hanging out I could see. Cleanliness is way better than average. No complaints. Great value for the money in Mostar. The beds are nice, but the bathrooms are a little weird. Not a big deal though.

Pretty clean, but there were ants in the rooms. Facilities included a large area to hang out and get drinks, so that was nice.

Very solid hostel. Security was pretty extensive though I had concerns about the security of the lockers. The owner is a great guy and we enjoyed hanging out with him and other guests (great atmosphere). The location is minutes from food and bars, but far enough away you can sleep if you're not out partying. Mostly clean, but could benefit from a little more vacuuming and the shower flooded half the bathroom. Pretty good value for the money though seemed a little high. Beds were a bit spring-y.

What a great hostel! First, the owner is amazing. Absolutely one of the most friendly people I've met running a hostel. Security is great with a giant door and lockers in each room. She really takes care to ensure only the right people have access. Location is close to the train and bus station and only 10-15 minutes walk from downtown for food and fun. Atmosphere is pretty good; mostly chill. Extremely great value for money. Facilities have everything you would need.

A bit misleading/confusing in the description. For one, no AC in the dorm and it gets HOT. Two, check-in is at 14:00, not 12:00. Finally, says in one place taxes included and in another, that they are not. They aren't in the original listed price, but they are in the 'receipt' at the end. Security at the front door, but that's about it. Lockers are...bare minimum. Besides a reasonable location, everything was mostly average though cleanliness was pretty poor. Only recommend for price

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.

Hello and thank you for the feedback. The security in the hostel is looked after at all times, as we have surveillance cameras, front doors that are locked at all times and access in the hostel or room is only by access cards. We apologize if the staff was not as welcoming or including. It certainly does not reflect their general performance in trying to offer each guest a great time in the hostel and in Bucharest in general. Safe Travels!

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.

A work in progress. Stayed here once before so clearly a place I'd stay again (and did). Security is average, but the city doesn't feel particularly dangerous. Great location in the heart of the old town. Staff were nice and the atmosphere was there especially with the bar feature. Place is undergoing renovations (in July) and they seem to be going quite slow. Kitchen is a bit dirty. Cheaper than most place though, so good value for what you pay.

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.

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.

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.

View Property Reply

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
