Location right across from the beach, and next to a bus stop, makes it convenient as heck. Doors aren't locked at all, and no security checking on the front door, may make you a little nervous by balance. Come with a relaxed attitude for best results!

Sunset Destination Hostel, Lisbon, Portugal

14th Oct 2013

Amazing hostel, one of the nicest you'll ever stay in. The dorm rooms are huge and airy, the bunks are BIG and comfortable, and the built-in locker/drawers and reading lights are a huge plus. A sunny sitting room, the terrace and little pool upstairs, train station right underneath for getting around or out of town - it's closer to a hotel with bunks than a crappy backpackers. Good free breakfast and cheap dinners available too, with a well-appointed kitchen if you're preparing your own meals.

Fine location, helpful staff, lots of activities - shout-outs to Harriet for the walking tour and Pablo for the flamenco excursion! - tall people beware of the bunks though: I had to sleep at an angle with my shins and feet hanging off the side.

Wildly expensive by hostel standards, but hey -- it's in New York. Location is splendid, and still cosy and quiet.

A lovely walk to the Capitol and Library Of Congress, close to the train, like the shoes-off policy -- but do be braced for the incredibly shaky and noisy bunks!

Excellent location, quiet enough due to alleyway entrance, great breakfast, good and plentiful bathrooms, GREAT policy of freebie boxes on every floor, nice lounge area -- but the staff mightn't be arsed about telling ppl to keep it down at 1am.

Small-occupancy rooms, ensuite bathroooms and free dinner AND breakfast make this an almost-luxury stay after you've been in other hostels for months.

As ¨rustic¨ as the other reviews indicate, but if you go in expecting that, you will have a wonderful, relaxing stay. Dora is friendly, helpful, and the variety of breakfast (day to day) is a wonderful touch. A quiet seclusion, but only a minute from the main street, and from renting a bike that can get you to the beach, the swimming caves, the ruins, the beach, the beach... Most of the cats will keep to themselves, and not seek pats, but their presence definitely adds to the charm!

Hostel Che Playa, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

21st Jul 2013

Located just far enough back from the tourist strip to not feel cheesy, but still only a few minutes walk from the beach (such as it is, once all the hotel and bar seats have taken up most of the sand!) Very laid-back feel, with friendly and helpful staff who'll do their best to sort out problems or answer any questions. I was here two nights - on a Sunday, everyone was quiet in the large dorm; but on a Monday, some peeps were up partying and smoking on the balcony til 2am. Unpredictable vibe!

Under a minute from a trolley stop that will take you right into the centre of town, or out to the scenic cemeteries. Great relaxed vibe, with a cheap cheap cheap meal on offer every night. Bathrooms could be cleaner / less rusty, but you'll cope. Lots of lockers and power outlets - a small thing but helpful!

The Wayfaring Buckeye Hostel, Columbus OH, USA
9.4
7th Jul 2013

I was only in Columbus to visit a research library at OSU, so the Wayfaring Buckeye could not have been more convenient - a short stroll through the charming, enormous houses of the university district. The bohemian end of town is in the same area as the uni, and there's a huge single-screen drafthouse cinema about 20 minutes walk from the hostel, too, with a great and thorough beer list. At 6'2", the attic room I chose was amusingly awkward, but the tradeoff for a comfortable bed well worth it,

Enormous dorm, but the wall in the middle makes it feel cosier, and everyone while I was there was great about being quiet and respectful. The staff are unfailingly outgoing and helpful, as if their inner happiness depends on making sure you're having the most comfortable time possible. Lots of power outlets, both at the beds and in the lockers, is great for travellers. Generous breakfast, great location, fun layout and copious activities both laid on for, or communicated to, the guests.

More expensive than most hostels, but hey, you're in New York, and the location is excellent - just blocks from different subway lines, in the heart of Chelsea (and minutes from the UCB Theatre). The rooms are spare, but only sharing with one person makes it a frictionless experience. Despite an apparently strict attitude to breakfast, they supply more than enough to fill you for a day of roaming the city. Wifi not extending to the rooms can be a minor pain, but the common area is huge.

USA Hostels Hollywood, Los Angeles, USA

This hostel is fantastically located, packed with friendly and helpful staff, and with excellent facilities. The location is not just convenient for tacky Hollywood tourist stuff, but walking or short bus distances from the likes of Cinefamily, the UCB Theatre and Nerdmelt, as well as nightclubs. Buses go from Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard to most places in LA, and the train is close by too. The included breakfast is incredible value, with a variety of foods in all you can eat supply.
