Mixed feelings about this place. The location is truly amazing and great value for money. But the kitchen facilities aren't so great and the atmosphere was just okay. It was an alright stay but I'm not sure if I would stay again or look for somewhere that feels wamer/friendlier. I more stayed here just for La Tomatina
Best hostel ever! Atmosphere is amazing with activities every night, super friendly staff that hang out in the lounge with you, and free churro with choc dipping sauce for breakfast (best hangover cure ever). My dorm room even had a/c. First time ever that I've had that in a hostel!! I am happy to recommend this hostel to everybody
I really love this hostel. It has a coffee machine that makes the yummiest coffees. Staff are great and breakfast is really decent. Location is fab and just overall feels like a fancy new hostel with cheap prices, an elevator, a/c, balconies, great shower water pressure, pub crawls every night etc. Felt very pampered staying here
I had a good stay here. I think the only negative for me was that it had a weird atmosphere. Maybe because the building was so huge and felt deserted at times? Dunno. I was doing my own cooking in the guest kitchen a few times and was completely alone. Nobody else came in for the times I was there. It was so weird and a little lonely. But otherwise it was clean and tidy. Bit of a walk from the town centre but not too bad
I really enjoyed my stay here and would def stay again next time I pass through Fort William. The atmosphere is very cozy and friendly, the staff are fantastic. Even gave me a lift to the supermarket! So nice. The other great thing is that you can stay in the hostel during the day (a lot of hostels kick you out to get their cleaning done) which was great as the weather was rainy and not a huge amount of things to do in F.William other than Ben Nevis
This hostel is possibly one of the best I have ever stayed at however some key things: It is very isolated (with beautiful views) and is the kind of place where its better to have a rental car as the public bus only goes past 3x a day, there is no cellphone reception, and no internet at all. But because of this the atmosphere is amazing as people have to talk to each other and play board games as nothing else to do. Kitchen is best I have ever seen and the glass dome in photos is so cozy .
I enjoyed my stay here and would stay again. The only negatives I can think of is that the room door needed grease in the hinges as it squeaked so loud overnight with people coming in and out of the room. I also had trouble getting the showers to work properly on the 2nd floor (would only do ice cold or boiling hot) but the 1st showers were fine weirdly. Good atmosphere and great kitchen facilities
A very bright and cheerful hostel. I enjoyed my stay here and would stay again. The staff were very friendly and I liked the brightly coloured painted walls. The only negative I can think of is that it would have been good if staff cleaned the kitchen more often as the floor was covered in water a lot of the time and as there were no tea-towels, the dish-racks filled quickly to overflowing with dishes. Being in the centre of town it was noisy overnight with all the pubs so close by.
I really enjoyed my stay here. The location is amazing right next to Edinburgh Castle. The décor is really neat with a castle theme and suits of armour on the stairs. The only slight negative is that I thought the toilets could have been cleaned more often as there always seemed to be boy pee on the floor in front of the loo! Would happily stay again on my next visit
There is a reason the ratings and reviews are pretty terrible for this hostel.. I personally only stayed here as all the other Brighton Hostels were booked out. The bad - triple bunks, unclean dorm room that smelled like a combo of feet and fish, staff that don't seem to care or know a lot, really basic budget breakfast with undrinkable coffee, very few powerpoints. The good - excellent bus service so very easy to get from hostel into centre within 10 minutes.. and not a lot else.. hm..
Very friendly family-run hostel. There are activities/free food most nights., plenty of power-points in rooms, very clean and well-kept, was more like a gourmet hostel. Location wasn't the greatest but only a 10min walk into the town, and 20min to the main train station. The biggest highlight for me was that the reception man carried my heavy backpack up the stairs for me! I would happily stay again
This place was an okay hostel. Kinda a bit grubbier-looking than what I prefer and not hugely well-kept. It's also super close to the Waterloo station train tracks which are quite noisy all night long. No noise from the bar could be heard from the room as a positive. The staff are really friendly and the bar downstairs promoted a good atmosphere with discounted drinks. I doubt that I would stay again as there are lots of nicer London hostels out there.
This was honestly the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The hostel is family-run and super friendly. Free food is on offer most nights or at a really bargain price. The kitchen and bathroom facilities are the nicest that I had ever seen in a backpacker hostel and kept super clean and tidy. Price and location is great. I really look forward to staying again next time I visit Cardiff :)
Reasonably average hostel. The atmosphere was great and I met some awesome other travellers there. However on the downside the hostel itself seems a bit groungy with age. The bathroom facilities could be nicer. I would happily stay again though as the price was very good and the location amazing.
I really enjoyed my stay here. The friendliness and atmosphere was great. However security was a little too relaxed for my liking and the cleanliness in some rooms (the other lounge) was a bit too messy. I would happily stay again as the price for the dorms is too good to pass up.
Love this hostel!! Best one in Australia and seriously the best one I have ever stayed in
I really loved staying here at this hostel. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was really nice and relaxed. I would have happily stayed longer as I really enjoyed my stay. I would highly recommend staying here.
