This hostel is a great place in which to stay. It's a decent and safe one (keycards and lockers), it's clean and pleasant. Its staff and atmosphere are quite welcoming. Room, bed and toilet are alright. Bedlinen and breakfast are included, which is very convenient. The location may not be that convenient at first thought, considering that the nearest metro station is sort of far away (~15min), but it is worth a stay anyway. I would recommend it to a friend, so this says it all.
This hostel is slightly alright. It's sort of safe as there are lockers in the rooms and they control everyone who comes in by requiring people to show a certain paper given during the check-in, but there are no safety measures when it comes to getting access to the rooms. It's very well-located, in the city centre and right on the side of the train station. The staff was very helpful when I needed. Downside: they should take more care of the building, what we pay and what we get aren't the same
That's definitely such a nice hostel to stay in and I would recommend it without a second thought. It's quite a safe (you need keycards to get access to the rooms and they offer lockers in the rooms), clean and hotel-alike hostel. Rooms, beds and toilets are alright. Great integrated bar! Downsides: limited free wifi (you have to pay if you wish more time) and no breakfast included, which is pitiful once all the other hostels I had been to in the UK included breakfast.
This is fairly a nice hostel, located within walking distance from the city centre. Its staff and atmosphere are great, as well as their breakfast with fruits and different jams. The rooms and bathrooms are alright, but be aware that lockers are located by the reception only and not in the rooms. Besides, one needs a code to get into the rooms' area and the room itself, which is great, but since the room door doesn't lock automatically, this safety measure isn't quite effective.
Isaacs Hostel is quite a good place, as it's a convenient and pleasant hostel. It's a safe hostel as they use keycards to get access to the rooms' area and the rooms themselves, no lockers in the rooms (only in the basement. So you need to go downstairs all the time and pay a deposit to get the key and padlock. Neither of this is convenient, but still better than no locker at all). It has such a welcoming staff and atmosphere. Rooms, bed and bathrooms are alright. At last, nice breakfast.
This is a hostel I could recommend to a friend. It's very well-located, really close to the city centre. Its atmosphere and value for money are great and one can still find a convenient kitchen to cook their meal or a room with tv and books to chill out. Once they use keycards, you need them to get access to the rooms' area and to the rooms themselves, which makes it a safe hostel, even though there aren't lockers in the rooms, only downstairs (by the reception). The rooms are big and comfortabl
That's quite a good hostel to stay in Cardiff. I would recommend it. It is very well located, just a few minutes from the city centre. Its atmosphere and value for money are great, as well as its breakfast and its kitchen. Besides, there are some cool rooms where you can socialise a bit, as TV room and reading room. One can find small lockers in the rooms, at least enough to put valuable things inside. I might stay here when in Cardiff again.
This is a very simple and basic hostel that turns out to be expensive because of its simple quality. There's only one locker in the room, which means if you are not lucky enough, your stuff won't be safe (a code is required to get into the room though). Its location is far from the city centre and its staff, not so helpful (there was a problem in men's shower and they didn't even make an effort to see what it was at the time, as result the problem kept on for a while). There must be better ones.
Certainly there must be better cheap hostels in London than this one, however if you intend to stay just a few days, it might suit you anyway. It's a safe hostel as there are keycard control to get access to the rooms' area and to the rooms themselves, but no room lockers (only a few safes in the reception). This hostel is sort of well-located, in front of the Hyde Park, with some metro stations around and not so far from the hotspots. Breakfast is fairly convenient.
This is such a different and nice hostel, more like a campsite. If you like this concept, so you're going to love The Tent. That being said, don't expect too much comfort, convenience nor safety (it's a campsite, which means it's an open field that anyone can get access to, but at least there are lockers inside the tents). Its staff and atmosphere are really great. Toilets and bathrooms are fairly clean. Its cafeteria offers wifi and drink and food if need be (the closest market is 20min away).
That's a nice and safe hostel. It's well located if you arrive by train at the Südbahnhof, but not really if you arrive at the Westbahnhof, where the trains mostly arrive. The city centre and the main spots are also a bit far, but at least there is a beautiful spot within walking distance (Belvedere Palace). The rooms, toilets and bathrooms are alright, just be aware you have to pay extra if you don't bring your own bedlinen. It's probably the only A&O hostel that offers free wifi in the rooms.
Just like other Hostelling International hostels, it's more of a hotel than a hostel itself, which means more serious and quiet atmosphere, a few outlets per room, breakfast and bedlinen included though. It's located in a not-so-good spot, far away from the main train station and the old town. Its neighbour isn't that helpful either, no bars and no markets within walking distance, only if you travel by car, in which case the gas station right on the side might be helpful. The rest is alright.
That's a cosy and arty one! Despite its location isn't exactly in the city centre, it's fairly close to the main train station and the old town (walking distance). The staff and atmosphere are quite friendly and make you feel welcome. The rooms themselves are spacious and pleasant and the beds are great (comfortable and bigger than usual). Toilets and bathrooms are alright. Free wifi everywhere.
I would definitely stay there again, it's such a nice and decent hostel. Its location is kind of far from the city centre, at least there are other places around worth sightseeing though. Down side: no internet in the rooms.
This hostel is quite a regular one. Not the best I stayed in, but not the worst either. Its location is really great once it's around the main train station, very easy to find and close to the main spots in the city. The rooms are alright and bedlinen is included. Down side: no internet in the rooms, at least there are free internet terminals on the lounge area.
I didn't stay too long in this hostel, but I can say I had a pleasant time.
That's not a bad hostel. Concerning security, access to the rooms has no control and the rooms' doors get locked by keys, which not everyone does. Keycards would do better. As for its staff, they're not so welcoming, besides, not so efficient. I almost couldn't get my train because the only receptionist was away at the check-out time. The whole hostel seems too small and you feel like inside of a small can, mainly in the rooms.
This hostel is worth a stay, it's nice and pleasant. There aren't lockers in the rooms and you have to be lucky to get one of those few lockers near to the reception. It has a cool lounge area where you can meet other travellers and a very helpful market right on the side. Its location is sort of far from the city centre and its main spots, but at least you have to take only one bus whose stop is right on the corner.
I would stay here again, so this says pretty much everything. Its location may be a bit out of the way if you wish to stay near the city centre, but it's not that far anyway. It is located close to an avenue with markets, restaurants and bars. If there were lockers in the room, I wouldn't point out anything bad but truth is, there aren't, thus you need to be more careful.
This is a very basic hostel that looks like just a place for a overnight. It isn't that secure once anyone can get in, even in the rooms. Its location and value for money are its greatest advantages only.
This is a good hostel, but make sure you have everything you need, otherwise you'll have to pay extra costs for everything (and they really check if you bring your own bedlinen). Staff aren't that helpful at all. I had a simple problem that was sorted out in less than 5 mins, but this happened only the day after because they said I had to wait. Internet only in the lounge area. Location out of the city centre.
This is a very basic hostel, but still good. Security can be a problem as anyone have access to the lounge area and the rooms, their control is only based on bracelets you have to use, but I myself got in the hostel with my bracelet many times without anyone paying attention to it. There are lockers in the rooms though. Its location is great and very easy to find from the main train station. Its staff and atmosphere are friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is included.
I could mention this hostel as one of the best I've ever stayed in. Security is not a problem at all, as you have to use a keycard to have access to the rooms' area and to the rooms themselves. Plus, there are lockers inside the rooms. It has an easy location to find, plus there are many bars around. Speaking of bars, its own bar is really cool and you can meet many people there, not only travellers. Its staff and atmosphere are friendly and welcoming.
It's more of a hotel actually, so you can get the comfort and facilities as though you stayed in a hotel (towels and linens included and private bathroom with soap). They offer a nice breakfast, but you need to pay first (tip: it's worthy). The only inconvenience is that there are no lockers in the rooms, so if you share a room with strange people, you need to watch out your stuff.
I've been to better hostels than this one, but it isn't that bad anyway. Rooms don't have lockers, so you need to watch out your stuff. Bathrooms' heaters seem not to work and showers may not be hot, so it's a bit tough during winter. Breakfast is ok though, it doesn't have many options, but it's still convenient .
This hostel is one of the best I've ever stayed. I couldn't complain about anything. Its staff is nice and friendly, its breakfast is ok and its bar is awesome. It may be a bit far from the city centre, but it's worthy anyway.
It's a pleasant hostel with a welcoming atmosphere. There are train and bus stations right on the corner and a nice market just a few blocks away. But when it comes to facilities, you have to pay for some things you need, such as bed sheets and internet in your room. Maybe it would be better to charge a higher price but including everything at once.
No customer comment
It's an enjoyable and welcoming hostel, plus it offers nice places to befriend foreigners, as a game room and a bar. The small price includes also breakfast, which is outstanding when it comes to hostels. The rooms in general are good, the only bad remark is that there are no lockers, so travellers' stuff are always exposed. The staff are really helpful and friendly, one of them even lent me their umbrella. Related to its location, it's great and you can find a grocery store nearby.
It's a nice hostel and I enjoyed my stay in there. Just two remarks about the bathroom: it would be much better if the light could keep on while we use the bathroom (or at least the motion detector should be located in a place where we wouldn't need to leave the bathroom stall to make a move). At last, it would be more pleasant for travellers if we could control the water's temperature.
It's a very nice hostel, one of the best I've ever stayed in. It has a great design, travellers can feel comfortable due to its welcoming atmosphere and also get everything they need for their trip. Although when it comes to security, be aware that there aren't lockers in the rooms, so travellers' belongings might be always exposed to thieves. I would totally recommend the hostel to provide the travellers with more security, it's the only thing that misses for the hostel to be perfect.
Hostel des Artistes is a very nice place to stay a few days in Rome and provides backpackers with the essential that they need. Just two remarks: 1 as the lockers are, everyone can see the valuable stuff that one wishes to keep out of the burglars' eyes . They would be safer if none could see what is inside; 2 some personnel at the front desk may be rude and then make you feel not welcome.
I'm really satisfied for having stayed at Ostello Burigozzo. It's indeed a good choice for those who look for a nice, safe and cheap place to stay.
