The Backpackshack, London, England
30th Dec 2013

The hostel was fine, except in a bad location! It was located about 20 minutes by Tube from central London and in a sketchy location! If you are young and do not feel comfortable walking through a poor neighborhood at night do not stay here! When we came back from the Tube at night we had to take a taxi back to the hostel (9 pounds one-way).

You DO NOT have to walk through a poor neighborhood. We are on the edge of an estate but you DO NOT have to walk through it. The tube station is a 7 minute walk in the other direction. The taxi fare is £6 usually, and only £9 at Xmas & New Year. Our average score on location is 74% which tells me that your outlook is way too negative. We are 20 minutes from Central London but how much would you have paid for a private triple room in Central London? Way more than the £20 per night here.

Ashfield Hostel, Dublin, Ireland
27th Dec 2013

Ashfield house was fine. There was no heat in the bedrooms (even tho management claimed it was on). It was very chilly. I didn't feel secure there because whenever the housekeepers would clean our room they wouldn't lock the door after (we even had a private room). Breakfast was decent. Great location but next to very loud nightclub.
