Hotel Chuo Oasis

Osaka, Japan
94%

Great, fridge in room, kumono's, cheap washing, kitchen, clean, less 1min from train station, supermarket about 150m with meals about $4 and 50% off after 830pm. You can also walk 800m north to DenDen Town. Staff friendly but dont speak alot of english but this is very normal for Japan. Pillows are bad tho, like sleeping on 2 phone books. Wifi good when it works but better than the more expensive hotels i stayed in. Every time i go 2 Osaka I'd stay here! Best value in my whole 4month holiday.

Alberte Bed & Breakfast

Odense, Denmark
94%

Good, big private room, kitchen only has one cooking station but its not a busy place so not a drama, and there was lots of fridge space. Host was nice and kept the place hospital clean every moring. Washing machine needs to be organised with host, would be nice if it was just coin opperated and accessable. Its about the same distance walk as the "City Sleep In" in Arhus which is a short 10 -15 min walk. Supermarket nearby to.

City Sleep-In

Aarhus, Denmark
74%

Was ok, place is old but has cheapest rooms in Arhus. We did order double bed but got two singles pushed together, room is pretty small. The kitchen facility is very good and is needed in denmark, but the food storage organisation is poor compared to other hpstels as it is hard to figure what spices, sauces and left over free food is availible. Short walk to get there, wifi best down stairs.

The Cat's Pajamas Hostel

Berlin, Germany
94%

Good big kitchen, cheap washer €2 and dryer 2€. Beds were cosy and designed like private spaces that had own power supply and shelf, rooms clean. Staff friendly. I'd stay again, it was really good. But to improve They need a industrial dryer for the staff to use tho and a couple more domestic dryers and washing machines for hostel guests cos waiting sucks. PS I left my unopened cheese in the fridge please eat... little red individual wax cheese packets.

Ahoy! Hostel

Prague, Czech Republic
83%

Stayed in 6 person room that shares a wall with common room which has zero sound proofing so you can join in on conversations from your bed if you wanted. But it had great kitchen. Lots of wookies in the shower that stayed there for a couple of days trying to block drain, I just kicked them out. Has washing machine but it was a bit expensive 6€, which is a shame because backpackers smell and cheap washing makes the dorms smell better. Would stay again but I'd try the twin rooms. Good.

A&O Nuernberg Hauptbahnhof

Nuremberg, Germany

Rooms and bathroom very clean. Location great. But Rooms need lockers, good kitchen would be nice. It is a hotel with big open areas on ground floor, maybe not the easiest place to force a conversation. Price jump is huge for a Monday, I'd stay again but move out if there was a price jump... wasn't motivated enough this time round.

Location good, at beginning of old town/shopping area. Tram ride from train station €1.10 which is close to hostel. Standard room. If you have heavy luggage be prepared for tight and long stair case to your room, bring muscles or a cute face to get them to the top.

Steffi´s Hostel Heidelberg

Easy to find and location good if you want to get off train and drop bags, but hostel to old town/shopping is 15 min walk. It has a really good kitchen, with a free food section from past travelers, free tea and coffee. Really big rooms. Has noisy doors though that pull shut, electric locks. Beds were fine. It was clean. Could do with another couch in common room.

OK. Was clean and tidy, cheap washing and drying avail. The cooking area is just a microwave and fridge with no extras so not great compared the kitchen in hostel ruthensteiner in vienna the night before. The beds are walled in at the bed head and foot so if you are over 185cm you will prob find the beds annoying and cramped.

Hostel Ruthensteiner

Vienna, Austria

Good. Hostel has really good kitchen and facilities. Clean and sometimes OCD tidy in areas with organisation and labels everywhere. Good rooms and good beds. Only bad point we could think of was that the shower on the left couldn't get hot but the other one would go as hot as you can handle. Good value for money.

Goat Hostel

Budapest, Hungary
89%

Price and location this is a Great hostel. The staff work hard and try to help where possible. It is however very basic so don't expect the bling and glamour of a new hostel, but it does the job nicely. It has a kitchen with a stove so its possible to cook a small meal. It is compact so its not the best place to stay up drinking as you would wake people up, better to go out to a bar for that. Improvement tip: the floor squeaks with people getting up at night needs to be reglued or resin.

Tresor Hostel

Ljubljana, Slovenia
77%

Very central, clean and its new and shiny. Facilities marked down as the beds make alot of noise when you roll over and move about, bad with 4 people but I image that a full 6 or 12 person room would be horrible for a light sleeper. So if you dont sleep like a log you might have to drink lots or bring ear plugs.

Maju Jaya Hostel

Cheaper than hobo bear hostel but location and atmosphere are very different, very quiet and it is a bit of a walk to get there, far from the action. It is very clean, beds were great, easy enough to find with map and easy enough to get most of the way with tram, aircon works.

Stayed one night here and another at Maju jaya. This place had nice cozy atmosphere in the bear cave and friendly informative staff. Location was easy and central. Was clean and beds were good. Only thing I didn't like was the small pillow for your bed, they were hygenic little things that felt as good as a beach towl folded over. Would stay again tho but I'd bring a pillow.

Silver Central Hostel

Split, Croatia

Compact little place, clean enough and located well. Overall Ok but not amazing, I might stay again but tempted to explore a different hostel. Didn't tell them when I was there but when you read this you can check it out, your aircon in room 2 makes a racket every 30min as if there is a loose pipe vibrating when compressor or fan fires up, needs to be secured or tied.

You need to be on your game to find the place, front door seems like in the early hours of the morning the undead try to scratch their way inside but the whole area seems a bit rough. The room is really big, staff are very nice and let us leave our luggage. Its clean and it also has a little bar fridge!

Security and location not the best but great value for money and if you don't mind a walk then stay here. Venice is just a short bus trip away so staying here is fine. The tents are kinda deluxe compared to what I'm used to in Australia. Would stay here again if I was visiting Venice.

Langstars

Zurich, Switzerland

Standard hostel & one of the cheapest we could find, the street seems rough but we never had any trouble. It can get noisy on weekends from the pub down stairs and its a trade off with keeping cool or shutting the windows from the noise. As the security is on the guests letting themselfs in and no one else, we did have a drunk stranger make his way in and interrogate people looking for someone which wasn't pleasant. Beds not great as they not really flat. Overall it was still good.

Sorry for that incident. Usually we have no security problems in the dorms!! The doors are always locked and you have only access with a key.

Far from city center & beach, try closer to beach or Rambler St. Didn't get a hostel feeling more like a broken hotel, when we arrive it was keys & sheets. Atmosphere was good if you're 18 as it was full of schoolies maybe thats why breakfast gets such a good review because the juice tasted like pure syrup & its just a standard breakfast, not the best. No ventilation & windows don't open so shower makes the room smell like mold, we've stayed in bigger dooms before and not this bad. Disappointed.

Close to center of town, there was always someone watching the door and rooms had lockers so was pretty secure. Greeted in the good hostel way where they show you a map and highlight all the good stuff to see. Did look like they were doing renervations and was little atmosphere but i think we were there in a low period. Good value for money I'd stay again.

Famous Crows

Good hostel right next door to a famous egg tart pastry shop. Nice late checkout, breakfast is typical meat and bread deal which seemed to be all over Portugal and Spain. It has about 5 or 6 tourist attractions nearby but the main town and party area seems about 20 min away, but good value.

Everything was nice, staff friendly. Good service at breakfast. With the windows open it was cool enough at night. Suggest take some Google map snapshots to help you navigate as train didn't have maps to give and we made close to hostel but had to ask for help, so maybe more signs out front would help. Rooftop is nice. Doors to room need some rubber or softners as they make alot of noise open and closing which was only negative thing I can think of.

Everything was good, staff was nice/helpful. The only thing I thought was bad there was no soap in any of the toilets which might not sound bad but with 20 odd people not washing there hands you then get sick and there goes your holiday.

Mount Eccles Court

Dublin, Ireland

Kitchen looked like a bomb exploded, but partly guests to blame. Showers were kinda cold. Door was really hard to close/open without a loud bang due to hinge and frame alignment. Not the best location as we also stayed in temple bar area which was a little closer to the action and the same price. The bed frames are falling apart at the joints, wooden joints in need of glue and clamp. There was a house alarm 2 houses down that went from 10pm to maybe 4am windows didn't help.

Snuffel Backpacker Hostel

Bruges, Belgium

It is a short walk into town -it is a small town anyhow. The hostel has a pub attached to it which is open to the public also. There is a very good atmosphere here. The staff are very friendly and easy going,there are games in the pub and despite the popularity of the place, it is not too noisy upstairs if you want to turn in earlier. The biggest downside was that you had to walk through the pub to get to the showers. We could also only enter our room by first walking through another dorm.

Easy to find, very close to train station exit. First impressions when we saw the security door and wall on the outside we wondered about the neighbourhood we were in, I wouldn't come home in the early hours of the morning after a night drinking. GOOD Was clean, had good kitchen and place to eat and good value for money. Negative side the bed had very little cross members so they tended to bend and bow in a funny way, soft light needed in back of room for late arrivals so main isn't turned on.

Good place to stay, safes in your room, walking distance to sights. Heating turned up a liitle high but guess its different for everyone. Would recommend, but for us if we had more time or came back we would camp out of town, surrounding of town seemed really nice.
