Only one key for the two of us; had to leave door unlocked for others. Large lockers, but outside of the room. Walking distance of everything, but in a kinda rough part of town. We were never hassled though. Roberto was awesome and he makes very good pancakes. Other hostelers were friendly. Spotless bathrooms, but only one per floor. Shower mid-day to avoid the line. Very clean overall. No common areas outside the kitchen, which closes at 11pm. Not smoker friendly.

Only good thing: location. Definitely a party hostel and rooms on first floor are next to communal area; don't expect much sleep. No AC or fans in room - very hot at night. Everything was dirty, especially bathrooms. Women's bathroom only had one toilet and two of four showers were broken. Sinks were disgusting and clogged. We stayed a week and never saw a repairman. Free "breakfast" was sliced bread (untoasted) and jam. Rotten food in fridge. Entire hostel in state of disrepair.

Key card entry to building and to individual rooms was nice, however lockers were small. Location sucked; far from pretty much everything. Great communal areas, including patios, bar, and cafe. Free breakfast was awesome and filling. Our room was air conditioned; definitely made a difference in comfort.

Amazing staff. Amellia, Mary, and (sorry, I didn't get your English name!) in the bar were super awesome and fun to hang out with. Great location, walking distance to a lot and right on a metro line for going further. Got a bit loud a couple nights. Very social hostel, easy to meet people and make friends. Rooms were comfortable and the privacy curtains on the bed were nice. Clean sheets and towel daily was great. Would definitely stay again, no hesitation.

Great location, walking distance to most of the big sites. Far enough to not get the noise from Khaosan Rd, but close enough to be there in 10 minutes. Great staff, very helpful. Free bike rental was really nice for getting to some of the further sites. Great community spaces, makes it easy to meet people. Didn't get the AC room, but the fans were adequate at night. Wifi worked in the rooms. Would definitely stay again.

Doors to the rooms are exterior doors and my dorm's door didn't even latch. Lockers are small. Close to night market and street food, but far from the Angkor complex. Get the $13 Angkor tour, though, it's so worth it (transportation and full day tour). Staff seemed pretty indifferent about everything and weren't the most helpful. Wifi in room didn't work, had to go to the lobby. It was a roof over my head, though. Good AC and clean sheets.

Very barebones, but it's a roof over your head at night and that's what counts. Very friendly staff and good for conversation and information. Didn't get the AC room, but the fans in the fan room are definitely adequate for sleeping. Super close to the night market and old market (easy access to street food). Would definitely stay again.

Great hostel to stay in. Rooms are comfortable enough for a backpacker. Wifi worked well everywhere. Two free (warm-ish) beers nightly was nice, but overall bar is overpriced. A/C cut out once daily and had to be reset by staff, but 23 of 24 hours it was nice and cool in the room. Great location, within walking distance of most everything. Party hostel, but not loud at night (granted I sleep like a rock). Woud definitely stay again.

Great location, just a minute away from Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Incredible staff really made a difference. They were always available and actually fun to be around. I hung out with them at reception and drank tea and chatted with them almost every night I was there. Bathroom cleanliness was a little iffy (toilet was good, shower not so much), but the rooms were clean enough and free lockers (with locks) in the room were good. Incredible value, would stay again without hesitation.

Lockers only available at reception for 1€ a day. Must provide own lock. Terrible location (about 1km away from the nearest direct bus to Venice, which takes 20min). Hope you don't mind walking. Super helpful staff. My dorm was clean, but the heater didn't work (stayed in early March) so it was pretty cold at night. Very touchy hot water in shower. Free soap and shampoo, though. Also shuttle to Venice only operates during high season. All in all, for the price, I would stay again.

Keycard access to rooms with storage lockers available in-room (provide your own lock). Located near bus stops and train station, and only a short walk from Il Duomo. Staff was very helpful. Atmosphere was great (I had amazing roommates), but there were a lot of high school age kids staying there. Daily housekeeping with bedding changes was nice. Meals available (not great though). Pool and DJ booth downstairs. Only downside was that I couldn't get the hot water to work in the shower.

Great location, just above a metro stop so easy access to everything. Security is decent. Storage lockers available for every bed with provided locks, but the doors to the rooms don't lock automatically. My room was quite loud at night as the window overlooked a main street. Staff is very helpful, but there isn't really anything to do at the hostel itself. Free coffee, though. Great value, would stay again.

Paid for a room in an 8-bed dorm. Was given a single-bed room with private bathroom and shower for no additional cost, plus an unadvertised 10% discount. Score! Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. SECURITY: Keycard entry to room. Never felt unsafe in the building. LOCATION: Directly next to Sloterdijk Station (easy access to Centraal). STAFF: Extremely friendly! ATMOSPHERE: Bustling. Great vibe. CLEANLINESS: Spotless. VALUE: Couldn't be higher. FACILITIES: Plenty to do on-site.

This hostel is located in an FJT (Foyer de Jeunes Travailleurs). As such, it's held to much higher standards, which was nice. My room was clean and cozy with my own private bathroom. While there were two beds in the room, I did not have a roommate. A bit on the small side, but when you're only one person with one bag, that's all you really need. SECURITY: Keycard access to room. Awesome. LOCATION: Not close to center, but not a far walk. CLEANLINESS: Spotless.
