Chicago Getaway Hostel

Chicago, USA
60%

There is one very important thing that people have to keep in mind, which is the basement floor. I stayed 5 nights in the room L5, which is in the lower floor. It's literally in the basement where windows can't be opened. The air is bad since the only way for the air to circulate is through the AC and there were cockroaches on the floor... Other fellow travelers I met there who stayed upstairs didn't have this problem though. It's probably a very bad idea for humans to live in the basement.

IHSP French Quarter House

The best thing about this hostel is probably the location. It's in the French quarter, perhaps the only thing that matters in New Orleans. The staff were very kind and it's a good atmosphere to get to know fellow travelers.

I overall really enjoyed the hostel. They give you free breakfast and dinner and they are different everyday which is very different from other hostels I stayed in. It's very drinking and smoking friendly (of course not indoors)

It's very close to the beach. I liked that. It's a bit pricy though like any other hostels in LA. The thing that bothered me most was that I am not allowed to drink alcohol inside the hostel. I should have known that HI (Hosteling International) hostels have no alcohol drinking allowed policy.

Banana Bungalow Hollywood

The most important thing you have to keep in mind before booking this hostel is that it is a party hostel. There a lot of activities involving a high volume of booze. I personally liked it because it's one of the reasons why I booked it. It's a bit pricy though but hostels in LA are generally expensive.

The only elevator is very slow. I bet it was made 100 years ago. It wasn't so clean as far as I remember. This hostel is pretty close to the Tenderloin, arguably the most dangerous place in San Fran but it's fairly easy to avoid. I have no idea why I got this information from other tourists rather than the staff in the beginning.

I really enjoyed the hostel. The location makes it easier to get to places. The huge locker beneath the bed lets me to store things safely. The best thing was the activities organized by the staff every day. Since I was travelling alone, I really appreciated them.

It wasn't so bad but the location is too far away from the downtown. For I value the location most, it was a bit hard for me.

Istanbul Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

The best thing about this hostel is its location. Very close to the blue mosque and hagia sofia, you can easily walk around. One of the staff is very kind and speaks English very well (I forgot his name). Also a van for the two airports in Istanbul comes and picks you up every morning (costs 30 Turkish Lira), which I found very useful.
