Ram Bhawan Residency, Varanasi, India
9.7
12th Nov 2013

A very good hostel in the heart of Varanasi within 30 seconds of the river and run by very kind staff. There are no dorm rooms as you may expect in a typical hostel but it isn't a terrible trouble. The hostel provides breakfast and lunch which were excellent every time I was fortunate enough to eat in! Really, overall a great hostel that is most likely one of the most, comparatively, modern hostels in India.

Ocean Hostel, Jaipur, India

10th Nov 2013

This hostel is an odd mix of bad and good. Specifically, the staff is nice, and arrange taxis and breakfast (and even dinner if you want it) to your needs. But here is the bad: the hostel is far from the train station, the hostel was deserted when I was there (just me), the beds are plywood planks with blankets on top, and the power cuts out on occasion. I used this hostel more as a "rest stop" of my travels and it fulfilled that purpose, but if you want a fun, or unique hostel, this isn't it.

A very good hostel, the staff is wonderfully helpful in arranging any side trips you may have and are great to bounce ideas off of. The location is about 10 mins walk from the metro, but the area is great and safe.

21st Oct 2013

A great hostel - I honestly can't think of a bad thing to say. The facilities are great: kitchen, bar, shower, beds and everything else is very good. Staff is very helpful and kind, even the cleaning staff is very quiet in the morning in case you had a late night! Moreover, the location is right next to a major metro (U2) stop, and there are many good restaurants of all prices nearby.

An awesome hostel in a beautiful location with a wonderful staff. Not enough good things to say about this hostel! It is recently renovated (1 year ago) and located in a fantastic location downtown, not to mention the fact that the building itself is gorgeous and the rooms are spacious! The showers are hot, the breakfast is good and the staff is helpful and kind. I highly recommend this hostel to all travellers.

Lybeer Travellers' Hostel, Bruges, Belgium

14th Oct 2013

The hostel is one of (if not the) closest ones to the train station, and not far away from the city center; though, Bruges is a small town so it is all close! The hostel is undergoing renovations so some parts are better than others.

A really solid hostel in Dublin with the absolutely awesome feature of a fully-equipped kitchen! The staff is very nice, the laundry is a bit of a pain - only the first 5 or so people in the morning can get on the list to get their stuff washed that night. So plan ahead in that regard.

This hostel is an odd mix of Hotel and Hostel. If you know you want a more typical hostel/group environment this hostel is not the place for you. If all you need is a place to rest your head and a breakfast this hotel will work fine. I had booked three nights but ended up transferring to a hostel that I felt more comfortable in, the staff was very helpful with this process.

I stayed in this hostel "off-season" (not summer) so the crowd was a little less party, but the hostel is very nice and would be a lot of fun in a group.

Thanks for the review. Sorry to hear you didn't have enough people to party with but we can't force people into partying, can we :)

This hostel was spectacular! I absolutely would recommend it for the atmosphere alone. The hostel has a bar downstairs and an excellent breakfast, an awesome staff and great events (free BBQ) to top it all off. It is outside of the city center, but it's more than worth it in my opinion.

This hostel is far outside the city center, but it is a hair cheaper so that is the plus. The breakfast isn't anything to kill for (unless you just want food and don't care for taste), and the rooms are basic. Staff is nice as you can check in 24 hrs.

Very popular hostel though I think it may be more popular with local school groups because I had a few young (early teens) groups with me. Kitchen is also just a microwave. But great location.

Awesome hostel, great location (10 mins walk from the station - it is a small town), good breakfast, nice staff. Only downside is the additional 6 Euro charge for non-members of Hosteling International. But the town is so beautiful it doesn't matter.

Bellpark Hostel, Lucerne, Switzerland
7.7
4th Sep 2013

I wasn't sure what I would be getting into at this hostel as it had no reviews but it was such a comparatively low cost I decided to try it. It is pretty easy to get to (take the #1 bus to Bell Park and head backwards like 50m), it is across from a grocery store, and it is cheap. Unfortunately, I don't think they allow the kitchen to be used by guests, and the breakfast was rice and eggs. Curiously, it was a predominantly Asian group of people so I felt like I had found a hidden secret hostel.

It is in Switzerland, so it is a little more expensive than you would think. Also there is the 6 Euro per night charge if you aren't a member of Hosteling International, which is a big bummer. Lastly, it is a little bit outside central Zurich, but you can (in 40+ mins) walk to downtown.

The best thing hands down were the brand-new bathrooms that were hotel quality. It made the stay better in such a simple way! Otherwise the breakfast was basic but good (and free) and the beds were comfy. Location was pretty good too, little walk from the station but once you get there everything to see is close. Highly recommended.

A really awesome hostel, the atmosphere vibes very well between the staff and guests. For example, they have two free walking tours and we went with Juan (who was spectacularly informative) and we saw him back at the hostel during the free sangria hour and for the bar crawl. I loved it!
