Funky, hippie atmosphere in rundown old motel, clean enough. Mother/daughter team couldn't be nicer. Place advertises four bed dorms, but they are actually kitchenettes with two bunk beds. Since the place was not crowded, they made sure I had a room to myself - very sweet of them. Downtime Reno has seen better days, but the nearby walking along the Truckee River is spectacular. Mellow music in the attached club/cafe at night.
Pluses - very clean, hot water, reliable internet, wonderful location. The staff was efficient, but with the exception of Chantal, indifferent if not slightly unfriendly. The lounge had no books, television or computers, thus was mainly unused. The kitchen has a hopeless lack of supplies, impossible to cook a meal. Breakfast was fine, typical Paris continental. Paris is expensive, so Perfect is an average value for the venue. I had less fun there than in almost any hostel I have stayed in.
One of the best kept hostels anywhere. As an old guy, it was a little too party/drinking atmosphere for me, but the dorms were peaceful so no problem. The staff by necessity was a little impersonal, but that is to be expected in such a large hostel. Door security, lockers, clean kitchen all A+. And the whole old city is right outside the door, with trains and buses minutes away.
Slippers is small and intimate. A short walk from old town, it is a quiet refuge. Paul and Indre are as sweet and friendly hosts as you can find anywhere. The idea of having a couple of Japanese sleeping capsules gives a solo traveler an unheard of sense of privacy for a hostel. The kitchen facilities are adequate, but can use some improvement of organization and implements.
This is not a party hostel and it is not in the old city. You need to ride the bus, or for those of us who enjoy it, walk forty-five minutes. If that doesn't bother you, Mamas and Papas is a wonderful hostel. I didn't get a chance to talk with Mama, but Papa (Kris) and their daughter Ada could not be nicer or more helpful. Everything is new, clean and comfortable and quiet at night. And breakfast with meats, cheeses and good bread is A+ for a hostel. I felt at home, and hated to go.
The computer works great, but the wi-fi is hopeless. Staff very friendly and helpful. 24 hours bananas, cookies, coffee, tea, Milo. Not as close to everything as all the places on backpacker row 500 meters down. Pleasant stay
Its main adverising point is its proximity to the airport, but it is not particularly close. I just spent a night between flights, so did not spend enough time there to really evaluate it.
Very spacious, extremely clean, super friendly staff, a top-notch kitchen space, almost everything I could want in a hostel. Not arty and beautiful, but who cares. I stay in hostels more for the social life than the economy, but was more comfortable than in a hotel. Would be happy to live in Casa Angel for weeks. A bit of a walk to the Centro. Suggest a desk buzzer to open the front door or keys to the guests. People don't like to knock and wait, though the staff was always quick. A+
One of the nicest hostel choices in the area and an excellent value
One of those places that is so hard to leave. What more do I need to say?
Brand, spiffy new. A few steps from the best beach. Friendly and helpful owners. Worth the extra pesos
A large and slightly impersonal hostel. Extremely convenient for travel and in the center of the city.
Spacious, clean and comfortable. Helena and Vera are helpful and friendly. If you want peaceful and pastoral surroundings this is the place for you - but if you want to be in the middle of the Prague action, you need to look elsewhere.
Just like home rather than a hostel. It would be easy to stay for weeks. Unlike all the supersweet receptioniists everywhere who would smile if you poured wine over their heads, Greg has a few rough edges. He tells it like it is, which to me is quite comfortable. Also thanks to Kamila and Francie, her walking tour and her cake.
Mama's posts their one most important rule. Quiet and consideration for others after 23:00. They do zero to enforce this however. Couldn't sleep, won't return
Wonderful staff, sweet and helpfu. Everything was new and state of the art. Spacious. No bunks! The best of the best
Petra and Ivan are sweethearts ans speak excellent English. In-mid June the hostel was literally empty. I had a five bed dorm en suire and the kitchen completely to myself, which was very comfortanle if a bit odd and lonely. Both this hostel and Banska Bystrica are worthy of more visitors.
The tour with Bata should not be missed. I do not do tours, but this was something special. The hostel is a little crowded, but feels like home.
It is difficult to judge the entire staff by one individual, but the man who checked me in was the rudest person I ever met working in a hostel. Extremely unfriendly. The hostel is like a large, ugly old Communist box.
A delightful place to stay and a superior bargain for a single traveler almost impossible to find in this region. An excellent kitchen and Ive is a kind and caring host
Right i the center of the old city in an old building which is wonderful. Nice bathrooms and great hot water. There is only one hot plate for everybody, so cooking opportunities are completely inadequate
