City Backpackers Hostel

The hostel is excellent great facilities, and extremely clean. Very comfy beds and clean, quiet rooms. For the price sheets could be included, but other than that you can't fault the hostel, great. Definitely worth the money.


Benedict Hostel

Krakow, Poland
63%

Good location but no locks on the front door or the room doors, anyone could walk in off the street if they wanted to. Three level bunk beds are a bit dodgy and the rooms aren't really big enough. Very noisy and the breakfast is really average. Only one basin in the girls bathroom so you have to queue to brush teeth etc. overall a pretty average hostel, you can probably find better for a similar price.


Tatamka Hostel

Warsaw, Poland
60%

Staff weren't very receptive, helpful or friendly. The unisex toilets and showers were disgusting and there were a severe lack of both. The beds were super uncomfortable. Kitchen is really good however and the common room is ok. Very close to the old town. You pay for what you get, but wouldn't stay here again.


Treestyle Hostel

Budapest, Hungary
83%

Is a great hostel in an excellent location, near most of the attractions in Budapest. Kitchen and common area were really good, kitchen was well equipped. Toilets and showers weren't cleaned very often and were tiny. Heaps of really really cheap bars and resturants on the road, still quiet though. Supermarkets nearby.


Camping Rialto

Venice, Italy

The cabins are freezing cold woke up several times during the night shivering. They do provide a heater but it is so loud that sleeping with it on is practically impossible. Hostel is completely reliant on the bus service, which is typically unrealiable. One of the days they weren't running but luckily they run a shuttle at a cost. No kitchen facilities. Toilets and showers were really clean and wifi works well in the bar area. Hard to find reasonably priced accomodation in Venice, not too bad


Central Station Hostel

Amsterdam, Netherlands
80%

Great hostel in an excellent location right next to dam square and only a couple of minutes from the red light district. No kitchen or common room but not really an issue as rooms are huge and you don't spend much time around the hostel while in Amsterdam. Ensuite in rooms were really clean and well equipped. Staff were really nice. Great hostel all in all

Check In Hostel

Berlin, Germany

Upon arrival they didn't have a key for us had to get the guy to let us into our room everytime. The sheets weren't cleaned in between guests it seemed. Facilities were very very lacking. The kitchen was tiny and had no cooking utensils,had to wait an hour or so for room to cook. For the amount of people staying there weren't enough toilets or showers and the common room was always packed. Staff weren't helpful. However location is good and what you pay for is definitely what you get.

The staff were friendly and very helpful on arrival. The hostel itself was nice the common room is good with a projector screen and movies to rent. Rooms are comfortable with lockers, wifi in rooms not good but not an issue, free computers and fast wifi in common areas.

Amico Hotel Roma

Rome, Italy

The hostel was very good, more like a cheap hotel. No cooking facilities, the rooms were really nice and came with air con and a fan. Staff were really helpful and spoke good english, cheap supermarket just down the road and situated right outside a tram stop that takes you to the train station. Would recommend for cheap accommodation

Riverbank's Hostel

Florence, Italy
49%

Good location and nice rooms but the rest of the hostel was disgusting. The main area and kitchen were seriously gross and unclean, the stench was unbearable. We paid 5€ for a/c which turned out to be on a timer so turned off during the night. The staff were 2 men, one slept on the couch in the main area at night, he didn't change his clothes in the 3days we were there, hence the awful smell. They were a bit too friendly, we wouldn't recommend staying if you're a female travelling alone.

Ostello Tramonti

Cinque Terre, Italy
63%

Is a good hostel for doing the cinque terre with the free shuttle provided for pick up and drop off. However the hostel itself is in the middle of nowhere, with only one restaurant and no shops. The restaurant was recommended by staff and served the most terrible food, it was practically inedible and overpriced. The hostel had no cooking facilities apart from 2 microwaves and a tiny fridge. Bed frames were covered in mould, wifi didn't work and the showers had black mould.

Wi-fi works, we are sorry if that day didnt work. You have two shops in the village and the restaurant is very good (anyway you should comment about the hostel).

Excellent hostel, in a great location only 2 minute walk from train station. Staff were very nice and helpful, free beach towel hire and also laptop hire which was great. Facilities were clean and the free breakfast was a good bonus. Highly recommend staying there, definitely good value for money


Hotel des Andelys

Paris, France
40%

Location was ok, quite a long walk to any of the sights but easy on the metro. Staff were friendly but spoke hardly any English. The rooms were a bit depressing and not very clean. The shower in the room leaked straight out into the bedroom. One shared toilet for each floor, really unclean and the door didnt close. Spotted a few cockroaches. Wifi was spotty and security was not great, with the front door wide open all day and you have to hand your keys in whenever you go out.
