El Warung Beach Hostel

Gran Canaria, Spain

My time at El Warung was relaxing and fun. Manolo was a huge help with everything while I was there - he even helped me talk to four different money transfer places at 9pm so I could get cash.

My Friends

Florence, Italy

Nadina was fabulous during my stay. When I arrived, she introduced me to two other visitors who planned to go to the Palio di Siena so we could travel together. She was like a mom away from home - very giving of herself, her wisdom, and her home. On our way out, she bought us a round of beer at the shop across the street. My Friends was the best possible hostel I could imagine.

PLUS Florence

Florence, Italy

PLUS is nice - it has plenty of amenities, the rooms are clean and spacious, and it feels like a hotel. But, it lacks the charm and comfort of a smaller hostel. Two of three nights that I was there, I was unable to find anyone to go to dinner with - it's like trying to make friends at a hotel. It's also QUITE a long walk from everything, except the Accademia gallery. All in all, I don't think I'd stay here again.
