Backpackers House Paraty

Paraty, Brazil
83%

The hosts were lovely, and their house is pretty. Very quiet. The city is very safe, even though the door is openable from the outside all the time (the hosts were there always though). Location was super convenient (supermarket, bus station, historical centre, shopping street)! Beds were comfortable. Breakfast food was great, but served much later in the morning than most hostels. Toilet paper was missing more often than not. LOTS of mosquitoes if you sleep with the window open.

well we didnĀ“t found a solution for the mosquitoes outside, is the season, but inside the rooms we are efective with the poison used. Sorry about breakfast time, but is experience resultant: in Paraty every tour starts starts around 11 am and almost nobody awake before 9 am to take breakfast, that starts at 8 30 and finish when the last one take it. Thanks for your stay

This hostel was awesome in every aspect except for the w-ifi, which was terribly slow even in the common areas. But then some places don't even have wi-fi. :)

Everything was okay. The beds were sort of old, but the shower was really nice. Nothing to complain.


Funny Palace Hostel

Rome, Italy
91%

The number one thing about this place is that staff is REALLY nice. They were incredibly friendly and helped us do all we wanted to do in the city. The location is great, very close to Termini station, where you can get trains or buses to anywhere. The room was okay, although the toilet was running water nonstop and this was sort of annoying, we complained but it wasn't fixed. On the last night, our room was smelling bad, and we have no idea why (we noticed upon arrival). Still, we do recommend!

It's not close to the station or the city center, so I needed a taxi to get there. But once there, I learned to use the susses to go to the city. The hostel itself is beautiful, so much it's hard to want to leave it and see the city!


Il Giglio Guesthouse

Florence, Italy
91%

It's not really close to any attractions, but close to the train station, and Florence is a small place, you can walk anywhere. Our stay was very pleasant and untroubled, the hostel was clean, and although staff was only there to say hello on day one (we didn't see anyone again), that was not a problem, it's a very private place (well, there's CCTV in most the areas, haha). We would recommend this place.

Location was good: very close to Mestre station (where you get the bus to the island), a nice restaurant, a supermarket and a pharmacy. Staff was nice and helpful. Room was comfy. We would stay there again!

Comfy, clean and very spacious, but not very central in the city if you plan to walk (although there's tram stations nearby). You have to pay extra for bed linen, and water etc were really overpriced. Staff was helpful enough but not very friendly. It was okay for the one night we stayed.

You couldn't get a better location than this (right next to the station and the Cathedral), and the staff was friendly. Rooms were cozy. There's laundry and non-included breakfast. The internet is only available in the common areas. The toilets were really filthy though, they smelled horrible for the whole 3 nights we stayed there, but the showers were okay.

Youth Hostel Van Gogh (Chab)

Brussels, Belgium
94%

Great place! Staff was incredibly helpful even though I had a hundred problems including not being able to come on the right day. The atmosphere was very young. My room was clean, comfy and silent. Plenty of showers and toilets. They had laundry and breakfast but I didn't have time to enjoy the second. I definitely recommend this place (unless you have problems climbing a lot of stairs).


Shelter Jordan

Excellent place, the staff were very lively, my room was clean and comfy (although the bigger room looked really crowded and very little personal space for each was given, it smelled a bit and was always noisy - my friend stayed there). The bathrooms were clean and the showers were good also. The free breakfast was modest, but that's okay. In a nice part of town. I would go again (but wouldn't stay in the 18 people room).
