Wombats is a huge hostel with a great reputation. The staff were friendly, the wifi was good, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was great. You pay a small free for it, but it was worth it. The only downside was that our room was incredibly warm. We couldn't control the temperature and both windows were jammed, so it felt pretty swampy (for lack of a better word) but, when we mentioned it to the staff, they were super helpful and fixed the window issue. I'd definitely stay her again!
Patio was a great hostel in Bratislava. Good location, nice staff, and clean rooms. Free laundry was amazing (though you pay a small fee for detergent). The wifi wasn't working when we were there for the most part, but there are free computers to use. I also liked how there are kitchens on every floor. I would definitely stay here again!
The hostel is quite close to a metro stop and the beds are comfortable, but we weren't too impressed with our stay. Someone stole my bed on the second night and the staff were not super helpful about it, simply telling me to take another (unchanged) bed, giving me new sheets and telling me to throw the old ones on the floor. The wifi was very touch and go and there really wasn't a hostel atmosphere. Not bad for the price but far from my favourite hostel.
We absolultely loved our stay at the 24 Hostel in Ljubljana. It was impressively clean, there were individual lockers in the room, there was great wifi, really good pillows, and the staff were so friendly and helpful. It was within five minutes walk of the Old Town, and was super affordable. I'd recommend it to anyone spending some time in Slovenia!
I had quite an eventful time in this hostel, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it. It was in a great location (2 minutes from the central train station) and the breakfast was good, but the wifi kept cutting out, the showers were tiny and a bit dirty, the walls were paper thin making it incredibly loud, and my friend couldn't use her lock on the locker provided because the clasp was so small. Ok for a night or two.
I really liked the Czech Inn. Comfortable beds, lockers in each room, clean showers, helpful staff... However, the directions in the email were useless since there's major construction going on down the tram line it says to take. It took over an hour to find the place (when really it's quite simple) and when I mentioned it to the staff they kind of shrugged it off. Overall a good hostel and a great breakfast, though there is an extra fee. I'd recommend it!
The Lollis Homestay was great for a night in Dresden. Very close to a tram stop and right down the street from a beautiful park. The staff were very cheerful and there were individual lockers in the rooms. No complaints!
I would HIGHLY recommend Plus Hostel to anyone. It's so close to the East Side Gallery and to public transit, with a Lidl (cheap grocery store) across the street and some cute bakeries in the neighbourhood. The staff were very friendly, towels very provided, the wifi was good, the beds are made every day... I don't think we could have done better in Berlin. Loved it!
Our room was clearly a hotel room turned dorm. It had great facilities, lots of outlets, and was very clean. It's a huge facility, and we really enjoyed our stay. Definitely outside the city centre, but it is close to an S Bahn stop. I'd definitely recommend it for a night or two in Hamburg.
Durty Nelly's is in a great location and the staff were very helpful. I appreciated the individual lockers and the discounts at the pub. However, I did find it a little expensive.
The Flying Pig is the place to be. Individual lockers are provided, great breakfast (Nutella!), friendly staff, great showers... No complaints. The wifi is a bit weak but that shouldn't make or break your decision. Definitely a party atmosphere.
Charlie Rockets is a fun hostel in a great location. The bar is cool and I loved the building. However, the luggage room is just a back room that's unlocked, and the slats in our bunk bed broke during our stay.
The hostel was cute and quite close to a metro stop, which was great since it is a bit outside of the city centre. Strong wifi and good (included) breakfast. No individual lockers, but they do have a storage room you can use. Worked for us!
