One of the best hostels I've stayed in! Rooms and bathroom cleaned daily. Easy access to metro and within walking distance to cool neighborhoods. Large grocery store just around the corner. Free breakfast when you're travelling is always welcome. Would definitely stay here again :)

The hostel is pretty close to the light rail station so it's easy to get to/from the Greyhound station. My only suggestion is to install air conditioning in the rooms. We had just a fan and it was actually hotter in the room than it was outside (and it was close to 30C). So difficult to sleep when it's roasting!

The staff were so nice and helpful! One of the best hostels I stayed in during my Japan trip. The building is really cool and as long as you're aware of the thin walls, it's a really cool place to stay in.

Thank you for your stay at toco. There are some paper walls in our hostel. Yes, those walls sometimes let the sound of walking and talking go thru your room, but that's Japanese culture. We have to consider each other because of that, but we believe Japanese hospitality is based on this consideration. Is it cool?^^

The 'lounge' was basically a 4-seat table and fridge shoved into a small storage room. Not exactly a place you can relax.

Fukuoka Hana Hostel

Great location but our room was not in the best condition. I could smell damp/mold in the room as soon as I walked in. We even found patches of damp on the wall above a bed. Not the healthiest air to be breathing! I also got bit a number of times by something during my sleep. Only on my arms and neck so I assume 'something' lives in the trunk/cupboard at the head of the bed??

Time Peace Apartment

Amazing staff! Everyone was so nice and helpful! My main complaint is that the women's dorm was way too small for the number of beds in there (only 6). There is someone living in the attic too so the ladder is down, making it even more crowded--no real room for luggage or even moving around. The room is really dark (only one light)--the beds definitely need individual lamps.

Great location, close to metro and convenience stores. Very clean. Wasn't all that comfortable walking thru the bar and its paying customers so I used the side entrance when I returned at the end of the day.

It's quite a distance to downtown and while the bus is direct, I like hostels to be right in the city. This is an old hostel, definitely in need of an overhaul. At the very least, renovate your showers. Not even kidding, it's so archaic. The very first thing I thought of is that it looks like those showers used in the concentration camps, just shower heads attached to a single pole.

I can't imagine what it's like in this hostel during the busy summer months as I found it overcrowded as it was. Not enough showers, our room was smelly due to lack of fresh air (no windows, only a fan circulating stale air). Kitchen lockout is not convenient at all. Yes, it's close to the Super Wal-Mart (good for keeping food costs down) but it's relatively far from the main sites and the buses don't come very often.

One of my favourite hostels! I loved it here. Everything a traveler could ask for: great staff, cleanliness, kitchen, towels, wi-fi, personal light and plug-in outlet, a locker. I'm definitely staying here next time I'm in Asheville.

Capitol City Hostel

Bill was great! Friendly, welcoming, full of useful info. However, this is one of the dirtiest 'hostels' I've ever stayed in. Basically just bunk beds in empty bedrooms. One bathroom upstairs that is in desperate need of a good clean/reno. I got bit by bugs in my bed. I saw TWO different types of beetles crawling on my bed/sheets. I wasn't able to switch hostels so it was a LONG stay. Its only redeeming quality is that it's one direct bus to the Whitehouse and major sites.

The breakfast was quite basic, just toast and cereal--but it's free! It's about a 10min walk from the tube station so if you have a big backpack this could be annoying. However, it's one stop from Victoria Stn so easy to transfer, etc. Showers on the third floor always had hot water but there aren't many so get up a bit early. Rooms were very small. Lockers were available but I'd almost rather have a little more floor space. Definitely one of the better hostels out there though :)

the buzzing locks on the door due to keycards are really loud and irritating. there were a couple of people that were long-term residents in my room so it felt like we were invading their space. plenty of showers and toilets though--there was never a line up. rooms were a bit tight. an extra chair or something to put your stuff on would've been nice.

Hotel De Famille-Bordeaux

The place was rather dirty. It smelled like dog everywhere (a pet dog was loose around the hotel). I came back one afternoon to find dog crap in the middle of the hallway and saw urine stains on the wall/carpet. I had to get up early (6:30-ish) to catch a train and the lights for the shower were turned off during the night--I had to shower holding my flashlight in my mouth! I didn't realize this until after but I was charged on top of my online booking deposit when I checked in. Will definitely not stay here again.
