The Cat's Pajamas Hostel, Berlin, Germany
8.6
27th Sep 2015

Wonderful new, clean hostel in a pretty good location. The beds are comfy and the rooms spacious and secure. Wifi works really well and kitchen is good. You can also hire bikes here. Negatives-we found the hostel had an older crowd and little atmosphere, no one really socialising or looking to go out. Also tried washing one day, first reception had no coins, then no washing power so we bought our own as already wasted half a day mucking around. Ended up spending €12 to do washing ourselves.

Let's Rock Hostel, Krakow, Poland

22nd Sep 2015

Great location, staff speak great English, kitchen is ok but small for a hostel of so many people. Staff gave great advice when asked about local food and drink places too. Wifi also works well. On the negative side the rooms are very small, and probably not enough bathrooms for how many beds. Also not that quiet if you want a night off partying, including staff returning late and loud. One "staff" (so he claimed) also made a few guests uncomfortable when talking aggressively &high as a kite.

Really nice place and staff were great, really friendly and helpful. Kitchen was good, showers hot and beds fairly comfy. Wifi worked well too. Only negative we had was you have to make your own bed when you check in, which didn't bother us, except when people check in at 2am two nights in a row and have to fiddle around in the dorm making noise while attempting to make top bunks in the dark. Would stay here again for sure.

Hostel Miran, Mostar, Bosnia And Herzegovina
8.6
10th Sep 2015

Our stay at Mirans was very good. His day tour is expensive but well and truly worth it, he lived in Mostar his whole life and gives a great account, but was annoying €1 entry for waterfall not included. The hostel itself is very clean, Miran and his family are super nice and helpful, he even booked us a bargain next hostel. Only negatives the wifi sometimes doesn't work, and we got laundry done and despite seeking numerous assurances it would be dry for early departure next day, it wasn't dry.

Montenegro Hostel 4U, Kotor, Montenegro

7th Sep 2015

Prime location right on the beach near the old town. Yasha and Boban are very good staff atmosphere wise, it's one of the best hostels I've been to. The beds are comfy, can be noise until 11 or 12 at absolute latest as neighbours complain so no problems sleeping. Big lockers are good and wifi works well. Negatives-'daily transfers' don't exist unless there's enough people who want to go there. Also kitchen is tiny and not as clean as rest of hostel.

El Diablo Hostel Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia
8.6
5th Sep 2015

Had a nice stay at El Diablo. It's located a bit out of the city centre but right near the bohemian quarter and heaps of places to eat and drink. It's an old place but well maintained. The staff are very helpful and knowledgable. No real common area and a lot of rule signage/don't do this was only negative. Wifi worked well and showers were warm.

Hostel Mostel, Sofia, Bulgaria

20th Aug 2015

Our stay was great in some regards and not so great in others. Great were the staff, bathroom cleanliness, wifi, breakfast. Not so great were the location of our room, which was a 15 min walk from where you check in. When it's pouring and you paid for a taxi to stay dry this didn't impress us. The room was really hot and the air con had a weird cardboard box cover and the fan didn't work. The only other negative was we got told the food tour the time had changed, it hadn't and we missed it.

New Backpackers, Istanbul, Turkey

5th Aug 2014

The location is brilliant, easy walking distance to most attractions and transport links. Staff are friendly and helpful but owner of attached cafe really pressures you to eat or drink there every time you arrive/get back. Wifi works in restaurant but not at all in rooms. There is no kitchen and no common area other than the restaurant. Easy to find but look for siva cafe as no backpackers sign. Don't pay 25 euro for a airport transfer either places nearby have them for 4 or 5 euro.

Good location in Olympos, fairly easy to find. The breakfast and dinner here is amazing, so good. The wifi worked really well in the bar/common areas too but didn't get our room very often. Rooms were good for what they are and what you pay. Staff really friendly.

Francesco's, Ios, Greece
9.7
11th Jul 2014

Best place to stay in Ios and one of the best hostels we have ever stayed in, if not the best. The rooms plenty of space and always have hot water. There's a free shuttle to and from the port and they even put the bags in a ute so you don't have to carry them up some stairs. Close to the nightlife but far enough away that it's quiet, Alex gives you a mini tour when you get there so you know where everything is. Pool/view are awesome. Great atmosphere for travellers. Only neg wifi really slow.

Martin's lodge, Peniche, Portugal
8.3
27th Jun 2014

Martin's was a cool place to stay, best thing is you can check the surf at supertubos and baleal from the roof or loungeroom. Pedro and Filipa are really friendly/helpful. Kitchen well equipped and loungeroom comfy with pay tv. Wifi works well. Downside no lockers, fair walk to anywhere to shop/go out, extras all cost eg laundry, wetsuits 20 euro a day, bus to baleal 8 euro, all add up, also one shower is tiny and the other didn't work. Overall would stay again especially if on a surf trip.

19th Jun 2014

Super new hostel with the comfiest beds and best showers I've had in a hostel. The kitchen is new and well equipped and the wifi works perfectly. There's a good laundromat very close that the hostel has discounts with and a supermarket across the street that is great for supplies. There's also pay tv with a heap of english channels. Only negatives no organised tours, fair walk to bairro alto, and often people hang out there who don't stay there.

One of the best places we've stayed. It's in a great spot, it has everything you need as a traveller, there's no hidden costs and the hosts are amazing, they made sure everything and everyone staying there has a great time (even bought a birthday cake). They also recommended amazing places to eat and go out and came out with us too sometimes. The other hostel staff were also friendly and everyone is made to feel welcome. Highly recommended to anyone and would love to return sometime. BEST HOSTEL

Pretty good place, would stay here again. Wifi is ok at times other times very slow, kitchen fairly good. Our room was small (6 bed dorm) but just big enough. Often toilets were clogged but they were unclogged fairly fast, also showers very low pressure. Brekky is solid a bit of cereal is nice if you like it (I do) but if you don't nothing else. Also a million staff work here/often hang out in kitchen. Movie room is nice and there's heaps of movies. Would stay here again, it's good but not great

Would definitely stay here again. Close to train station and walkable distance to main attractions of Rome. The reception staff are super helpful with where to go, what to see etc and speak great english. They have a deal with a place across the road for pizza/pasta on each night and it's really cheap (although not the greatest food it's well worth what you pay). The kitchen is kind of small for a large hostel so don't plan on cooking too often.

Affittacamere Stella Cinque Terre, Cinque Terre, Italy

6th Aug 2013

Absolute bad. We chose it for 2 reasons-close proximity to Riomaggiore train station/town center, and free wifi (to book our next accommodation)-the place had neither. You check in at the place shown on the map, then some rooms are 5 min walk, while some are 15 min up very steep hills/stairs. For wifi we were told 'just go into town to a bar and buy a drink and you get free wifi.' Corner of room leaked badly, didn't discover my bag was soaked til checkout. Owner now not responding to emails.

2nd Aug 2013

Was a great place to stay for what we were looking for. About 25 mins on the bus (which does eventually get there-don't panic when it doesn't take the turn to the camp because it comes around the long way) from Venice. The campground is nice and spacious, there is a market, restaurant and camp kitchen so you have options. Our room was clean and nice, although very hot. Would stay here again.

A great hostel. The facilities are top notch and the included brekky is pretty good, there is even fresh fruit some days. You walk out the door of the common room and are literally on the shore of the Adriatic, there is a diving board into the sea and everything. Wifi and kitchen all work well and are some of the best I've come across. Staff are also very helpful regarding stuff to do and helping book things if you need. Once you work out the bus to and from Split, the place is awesome.

A great place to stay and would stay here again. There is a washing service, full kitchen downstairs and mini kitchens on each level above, and the staff are very friendly and speak good english. Only issue we had was wifi doesn't work in the "blue room" on some floors (all other parts ok). Also wouldn't really recommend the hostel's pub crawl, you meet other hostels in "local bars" but they can't cope and you'll never get served by 2 bar staff trying to cater for 60+ people coming at once.

Everything was great, the room was very nice and clean and good value for money. However, the wifi in the room didn't work for the majority of the stay (only about 1 hour when we first arrived). We called reception a couple of times trying to get it fixed and they said they would, but it was never fixed. Found out in the morning that "the company doesn't give us enough megabytes for when we have a full hotel, so if full it doesn't work." If you need internet for work, banking etc beware

This hostel was excellent. The owners speak good english and were super helpful in telling us about good places to go. There is a fully equipped kitchen, the wifi works, and everything is very clean. The hostel also has ties with free walking tours, and a company who runs tapas, flamenco and pub crawls (all of which we did and were very good). It is also really easy to find, and in a great spot right in the centre of Madrid, and has shops and everything close by.

28th Jun 2013

One of the most ideal locations for a hostel in San Sebastian right in the old town, it's great. The staff are also very friendly and speak good english. However, there is no kitchen facilities at all, and despite what the ad said in our time there there was no lounge area either which meant nowhere to hang out or meet other guests as no drinking in rooms (but one room with beds didn't have a door number so that might be in less busy times). Also the colour tv is smaller than a laptop screen.

This hostel was one of our favourite stops so far. It is in a great spot 1 min walk to the beach, 5 mins walk to the old city, and near a supermarket. The common area is great for meeting people and having a few drinks (there are neighbours so can't be loud after about 10pm but can still drink/be there). Miguel the owner was very helpful, and although his English isn't strong he uses a map well and we had no problems. There is a microwave and jug but no stove/oven.

Was a really friendly vibe from good people running the hostel as well as good guests at the time we were there. It was a very relaxing place to stay. Everything was very clean and well maintained. It is a fair way out of town especially if you have luggage (about 2km from bus stop/town and about 4km total from beach) was the only bad thing. Also a microwave in kitchen might be useful.

Glad to hear you had such a good time,thanks for the feedback, i will put a microwave in the kitchen as suggested,all the best for the future.

Our room was a 13 bed shared dorm, but the room was a hot, windowless shed which also had the kitchen in it (room and kitchen separated by an indoor roller door). The lack of windows meant the room had a fairly strong body odour smell. The bathroom was also dirty. Also security was a concern, with anyone seemingly having access to the luggage room and 2 other guests reporting stolen property in the preceding days.
