Great location, staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic! Every morning there's fresh organic bread, juice, boiled eggs, cereal... There is only wifi in the common area. The park is steps away and a great park at that. It was however a huge hostel/hotel so the environment was lacking.
Ave Maria! This place was fantastic. Maria was such a welcoming hostess. She made dinner reservations for us and told us what to order our first night at a popular restaurant near the square and it was the best meal we had all trip. Maria was very accommodating and welcoming. Aboit a ten minute walk to the city center. Stop looking and just book here!
We'd stayed at meiningers before and came back because it was a safe choice. Decent enough location but it is a hotel-hostel. The atmosphere is dampened by the large groups that come in. Just a safe choice.
Jetpak was amazing. It was perfect for couples or solo travelers and was perfect for meeting other people. Staff was always helpful and welcoming. It may not be located in the highest income area but there is a lot of fun places to go and meet other people nearby. I wouldn't go into the park after dark though we heard of a mugging while we were there and there is always drug dealers at the entrances trying to sell to you. Would definitely come back!
Hostel homer is literally a one minute walk from old town square. It was smack in the middle of everything. We stayed in the sixteen bed dorm which may sound intimidating but we really enjoyed. The beds were extra comfy and facilities were perfect. We were put in a side building still connected to the hostel. It would have been perfect but the atmosphere was lacking while we were there but could have been due to the people and not the hostels fault.
Sàndor was the greatest host we have ever had. We showed up in Budapest not knowing what to expect and without any plans. Sàndor picked us up and dropped us off at the train station. He gave us a seemingly endless list of things to do and see. We had such a blast and cannot say enough good things about the property and our host. It was a room in an apartment opposed to typical hostel style which was a pleasant surprise. Do not look any further. Sàndor is your man and Budapest is the place.
Breakfast buffet offered and it was very good! It is a typical chain hostel so it's very clean and fantastic facilities but the atmosphere isn't there. You're lucky to get wifi in the room. We walked everywhere we went minus the main train station. Super cool area.
Odd reception hours with the door left open were anyone could come in. When the staff was there, they were very helpful and nice. The breakfast was not included but decent enough. The beds were very comfortable and you could see the castle from the window! I would stay here again.
Great flat outside all the hubbub of San Marco. Rialto is about a twenty minute walk if you don't get too turned around walking through the streets but a map with recommendations was provided. Having to call to check in was a bit of a bummer and we never met the owner just talked over the phone. It's not an actual B&B either, crackers and two juice boxes were provided along with instant coffee and tea. Microwave and refrigerator in the room. Overall pretty decent place to stay in Venice for the$
Facilities were excellent. The hostel felt like a university dorm building. They have a bar/pool/disco/restaurant but a little out of a backpackers price range. 4€ for a beer? I would rather go to the store and pick some up, thank you. No outside food or drinks allowed which definitely put a damper on our party. Wifi doesn't work 95% of the time but they do have about 8 computers free to use for the entire building. This place is huge, and felt like every bed was full. So many people.
Everything was clean but felt sterile. You can definitely tell that it used to be a hospital. (I think the breakfast was left over from when it was a hospital.) walking distance to a decent beach and trains leave every fifteen minutes to 5 Terre which was very convenient. About 15-20 minutes walk from the train station. Overall a decent place to stay if you want to visit but don't want to pay for Cinque Terre.
Great place to meet new people! I feel like we made friends with everyone there. Always people drinking and playing games in the chill out room or outside on the patio. Excellent computers to use for free. They were very fast and there were six of them. Free champagne?! 3€ all you can eat spaghetti and wine?! Who can top that? They are on random days but about 3-4 times a week. It is about 2 minutes walk from the train station and about 20 minutes to the beach and old town.
Art City is THE place to be in Barcelona! It is a converted apartment on Ramblas de Catalunya. Even though there are quite a few people staying there, it felt very homey. I can't say enough good things about the staff, Vincenzo is the man! It is super easy to get to know people here and we felt welcomed from the time we showed up. If your looking for a good time with good people in Barca, this is the place to be.
Castle Chambres was an excellent stay! Line and her family were very welcoming. We arrived at the train station after the last bus, so one of the family members picked us up free of charge! We stayed for Bastille Day and they dropped us off and picked us back up at the end of the night. The bike ride into town is about ten km but mostly flat and very nice. There is also a bus that is within walking distance. Make sure to ask for bikes or the $5 bfast in advance. A great country hostel
