Helpful staff with good hostel concept did the difference in a city as Athenas that offers less than it could. Specifically about the room, the large bed size was a plus in a room with good space and conditions to attend the travellers.
The hostel is in a old building. But with a good internal adaptation. Although the rooms are large, they don't offer individual locker for your backpack/luggage. It is frustrating, because the hostel offers only 8 small lockers by aisle for every guests who are located at same aisle. But, in general, was a clean hostel in a good location.
Friendly staff and hostel in a great location. You can visit some points by walking. But the hostel are divided in two old buildings. This result in a bad first impression, although the rooms are large and comfortable. Specially the rooms at Litter Russell St. Unfortunately the negative point is the toilets are constantly smelling bad (mainly because they are in the basement.
Friendly staff and hostel in a central location. BUT: the rooms are so small; the floor and the toilets are little bit unclean (the toilets not smell well). My impression was that the pics on hostel's website were better than the reality. In case that I came back to Edinburgh I will try other hostel. But unfortunately I'm not sure about how different the others hostels are, in this historical city.
Good location and friendly staff. In the room you will have some problem with the number of lockers available. In some case one room with 8 bed has only 6 lockers for example. But, in general, the hostel offers a good structure. Its localization is really good especially for who likes to go by walking for some places in the city. Furthermore, since the hostel is relatively large probably you will find many groups in the runners and the main living room. Nevertheless, the room is silent.
Good point: friendly staff. BUT: The place is absurdly small (they use mirrors to "extend" the spaces) Old furniture and in general in bad quality Walls with dye spends Room and reception EXTREMELY hot (the bathrooms as well) There no locker in the room for your backpack (can you believe it)? The lift only fits you and your backpack (if you have claustrophobia will have to use the stairs) There no ventilation system in the building. So they will use fan to spread the hot air in your face.
Good space in good location. But you will need to pay an additional value for facilities like computer and breakfast.
Comfortable room, clean and near of the most popular points in Prague. The hostel offers a good structure with free internet, breakfast and a own Bar. So, good location to stay in Prague.
Good location with cleanliness rooms. I recommend it.
It is a hostel in a hotel structure. So you will find a lot of people in the hall, stairs... all spaces in the hostel. Because of this the staff needs to work hard and a lot. This will contribute to in the reception someone ask you "what is the problem?" than "May I help you?"... Maybe in the same situation I could do the same... On the other hand, the location is amazing. The room is really small, but clean. So if you need good location this is the place to stay in Berlin. But in other case..
This place is amazing. If you like good people in a really cool and relax place, I really recommend you to go to Ecomama. I was in a room with big windows turn to the canal. So, it was possible to enjoy the silence and nature which involve all the hostel. Good service. Great people. Amazing space.
Great location; the hostel was concerned about offering a daily schedule of events and tours for guests at affordable prices; Good breakfast; Finally, I think was one of the better Staff that I've ever encountered in hostels I have ever spent. Highly recommend.
Offer to the guests a microwave in the kitchen sounds a really good ideia.
