Hostal Porto Mar, Salou, Spain

11th Aug 2014

A short but sweet stay in Porto Mar. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The bar downstairs offers cheap and cheerful service. The accommodation itself is relatively modern and very clean and the free stand fan in the room will cool those hot summer nights. The hostel is situated at the end of the train station platform so couldn't really be more accessible! 2 mins to the beach and a 8€ taxi to Port Aventura...perfect! Gracias para todo y nos vemos pronto!!!

Hostel One Paralelo, Barcelona, Spain

10th Aug 2014

Had another excellent stay in Hostel One Paralelo. Once again the staff were fantastic, a feature which along with the atmosphere really sets this place apart. Great location as it is close to all the action without being consumed by the noise. The Olympic diving pool is a must for anyone coming here in the summer and its just 2 mins up the road from the hostel. Its easy to see why this hostel is so highly rated. You'd have to be a fool not to stay here.

When I stayed here there were bed bugs found and instead of getting the fumigator in, the owner merely changed the sheets.......NOT acceptable, the guest concerned was not even reimbursed for his night. A toilet without a lock whilst not bothering me clearly affected other guests.

A real diamond in the rough! very cheap and extremely cheerful! I ended up extending my stay here, the staff are all people that one way or another wound up in Vegas which gives a good mix even if they are the most organised. The activities offered made my budget stay in Vegas a LOT better than I expected. Keep it up guys!

Yeh, so they give you free bottom end beer and have a beer pong table but expect nothing more. The staff couldn't care less. One power outlet in a room of 6 shower as hot as the sun or as cold as your ex's heart! I had a late bus out of San Fran (11pm) and was told that I along with my luggage were no longer welcome in the hostel after checkout....NOT acceptable. Due to the lack of hostels in SF this review will neither prevent you from staying there nor get them to change but hey ho. SHAMBLES!

Good location, staff and price. The facilities are good without being great and the hostel is clean on the whole!

Very close to the greyhound station and with easy links to downtown. As this is a motel I would not recommend it for a single traveller.

Firehouse Hostel, Austin, USA

23rd Aug 2013

A very good hostel, a lot more like European hostels than most here in the states. Firehouse is perfectly located for night life and historical sights. The hostel itself is relatively modern, spacious and clean with the bar behind the secret door being a nice touch! The staff were very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere of the hostel was great. The only place to stay if you're heading to Austin!

This is a big hostel with great facilities and it is kept very clean and functional. Due to its size the atmosphere does suffer as I found the service whilst informative, quite impersonal. The organised activities could be better organised with a few introductory games before heading out. The free breakfast was great!

Basic motel very close to the airport. I stayed here after a long flight from Europe just as a place to crash. If you're looking for a cheap bed with no frills this place is just fine.
