Manyatta Backpackers

Nairobi, Kenya

Great little hostel with super friendly staff. Hot water in the showers and free wifi is great. We met a lot of fun people at this hostel and it was the perfect starting point for our safari tour. There arent any mozzie nets in the bedroom though which would have been appreciated.


Very friendly family run b


Athens, Greece

Was cheap but you paid for it in every other way. Only had 1 hot shower in 3 days, breakfast was gone way before 930 (was offered 730-930), you had to ask every time you want the heat/aircon on as reception holds the remote, and the "kitchen" is pretty much non existent - two portable hot plates and a kettle plus the light didn't work so we cooked our pasta in the dark. Wouldn't return, wouldn't recommend.

Hostel One Paralelo

Barcelona, Spain

This is one of my fave hostels so far - its got a really great atmosphere. I loved how you can opt in for group dinners for a donation fee and everyone sits around the table like a big family. Staff were really friendly but didnt seem to be "in your face" like some small hostels. Only issue was that the dorm room was barely locked (everyone had a key) but you needed a code to get through the front door, so not a massive security issue. I'll come back for sure when returning to Barcelona.

B&B Siesta

Zaragoza, Spain

We really enjoyed our stay here, and the owner was super easy and a pleasure to deal with - she gave us great tourist information on things to see. There does seem to be a plumbing issue whereby theres a unit connected to the pipes which causes a grinding noise while having a shower and its quite loud... but this seemed to be the only problem. Thanks for a great stay.

Barcelona Tierra Azul Hostel

Barcelona, Spain

We were in a very dark room with only one window that let in very little light. This room needs a higher wattage light bulb because it was a very depressing room to live in. Also, the wifi should be upgraded so that you can get it in your room - we know you could get it in the common area, but that's not always the most convenient.

Euro Hostel Plzen

Plzen, Czech Republic

Its actually a hotel so theres no kitchen or common area to hang out. Breakfast is additional cost. Place was very clean and within easy walking distance to city centre. This hostel/hotel suited us as a couple.

Backpackers Lucerne

Lucerne, Switzerland

Didn't like the check-in hours. We arrived at 1.30pm and had to wait until 4pm until the check-in window opened. Mind you, there was still staff walking around the hostel during this time but we still had to wait until 4pm. Also, there needs to be more than one toaster because in the morning, you have to "line up" to toast your bread. We were also disappointed that there was no cooking in the morning allowed - :( Other than that, the room was large and hostel had a pretty good atmosphere.

Astor Museum Inn

London, England

Stayed here as a couple and loved the location and facilites of this hostel. The reason my score is a bit low is because of the staff - there seems to be a odd carelessness vibe. Although the staff are friendly, they seem to also live at the hostel and you can usually find quite a few lazing about in the common room area..this kinda creates an air of "you're in my house" and I didnt find that inviting at all. Another concern is the outdoor smoke area allows smoke to waft in all windows -stinky!

Thanks for your feedback traveler. As a youth hostel we try to keep this chilling vibe so people can relax and interact with others. It's a very social and laid-back environment and we always invite everyone to be part of it. About the smoke we'll take a look at our windows. Safe travels, the Astor Museum Team

NosDa Studio Hostel

Cardiff, Wales

Really great kitchen facilities, it had everything you need. The common area was good but needed better heating. We stayed in a private room and it was spacious, complete with a sofa to sit/relax on. Breakfast was value for money with both muesli and fruit on offer, amongst toast and cereals. Overall, would definitely recommend.
