Five Elements Hostel Frankfurt, Frankfurt, Germany

Hostel itself was good, breakfast was plentiful . Staff could work on being a little more approachable and interactive when checking in but were pleasant enough. 1 staff member with a beard was unnecessarily rude

Happy Inn Lodge, Interlaken, Switzerland
7.4
5th Sep 2014

We should have read the Happy Inn website because the kitchen was just 2 small fridges and 2 microwaves and was not at all equipped, it had a few tiny bowls, no mugs or proper knives. The kitchen was not open until 6am either which meant we would be unable to get our food out of the fridge to get the early train to Jungfrau and we were told to get up at midnight just before the kitchen was locked and leave our food on the balcony. We did not find them to be very friendly.

The owner was very helpful, we had 3 full days in Rome and he gave us an itinerary for all 3 days to get the best out of Rome. And a bottle of wine :)

The only issue would be the big school group that was booked in. Kids in a hostel not a great idea

View Property Reply

We're extremely sorry about that. Our policy is that we don't allow children unless the group takes the whole hostel, so as not to dampen the lively atmosphere that we normally have. We got surprised by this group having kids (no mention on the reservation) and there's nothing we could do but let them stay as they had rented 75% of the hostel. We will be more vigilant in the future and we hope the rest of your travels go swimmingly.

Eldorado Hostel, Belgrade, Serbia

14th Aug 2014

Stood outside the hostel for over an hour called both the phone numbers numerous times on our phones as well as passers by.Pressed the buzzer a couple of times still no answer. We gave up and went to the New Hostel Belgrade which we would recommended and you must eat at the Hummus Market next door. When we got in contact with Eldorado we were happy to find we would not be charged and would get our deposit back but when we arrived at the hostel again no answer.

This was a pretty good place to stay. The 8 bed dorm we were in was a bit cramped and the air conditioner didn't work too well but overall it was good. I would stay here again.

The only thing good about this hostel is Milan the guy who runs it and helps you organise where you need to be etc. There is no kitchen, the bathroom were tiny and did not get cleaned the whole time we were there and we had to constantly ask for toilet paper. I could go on but do yourself a favour pay 5 euro extra and stay in town in a decent hostel. SORRY MILAN.

This was easily the best hostel we have stayed in so far. The place is really clean, all the staff including the cleaners were friendly, it has a nice big kitchen and self service laundry. The bar and common areas are great but you don't have to put up with noise as there is quiet time and lots of extra doors to shut out any noise. The only tiny bad point is I found the beds about 2" to short. But I'm 6'4" so probably not an issue for most. Would definitely stay here again.

The bathrooms opened up straight to the common room and reception meaning you could see people in their getting changed. Not enough toilets or showers for everyone. Bathrooms and toilets constantly had water on the floor. We wouldn't stay here again.

The hostel itself is nice and homely. I rated security as average as there are no lockers or locks on individual rooms. We enjoyed our stay except for one night when the staff had a party until 2:00am. Not only did we ask for the music to be turned down but the neighbour complained also. As paying customers this is really annoying as we had a big day of hiking the following day.

It's a nice hostel in a good location. Breakfast is simple but nice and filling. The rooms were hot but the staff gave us a fan. The two downsides for us was that the doors to every room either opened directly to reception or to the common room meaning it was quite noisy. One night in particular the lady at reception spent around 1.5 hours talking to an American friend at 4:00am which kept everyone in our room awake. I would probably go elsewhere.

A very nice, clean hostel. There is no real common area and the hostel is not setup to allow for socialising which is why I rated the atmosphere low. Overall I would recommend staying here as the staff were great, breakfast was nice and it's a good quiet place to chill out for a few days.

We had a double room down by the river which was brilliant. Ben the guy at reception was happy to help with any questions and the kitchen is perfect. Would definitely stay here again.

Staff friendly and helpful. We missed the pub crawl but heard great things about it, free beer tasting, sangria night and summer drink night could do with a little more spicing up.. No fans in the room which when windows closed got quite warm but if open very noisy. The bathrooms were cleaned everyday. This was a good social hostel with decent size common rooms.

Not a hostel but a hotel, clean and quiet.. The only downside for some people but not for us is that it's a 30min walk from the centre.. But then again you get a double room with an ensuite for the same price as a hostel shared room with up to 10 others and shared bathrooms

Clean room and had a ceiling fan which is great. The kitchen had necessities, bathroom was clean, it was a very quiet hostel good for sleeping but not a very social hostel. Walking distance to most places we really liked Malaga.

Kitchen was small compared to size of the hostel, rooms were very noisy and warm, drinks were over price happy was only in bat down stairs not on roof terrace, key system was ridiculous.. Good lockers in rooms, staff helpful and friendly, bathrooms clean, free breakfast always a bonus :)

Showers were not clean, nowhere to put your clothes, only some worked.. Not advised there was no longer a laundry. Breakfast included always a bonus. Forgotten how badly some peoples feet/ shoes smell our the entire room. Unable to open window or get airflow through..

Thank you for your review. Apologies about the laundry, it will be back. As you've probably read we are busy improving the facilities at the Hostel. Not a lot we can do about peoples feet but hopefully the airflow will improve once the renovations are finished.

Great place to stay! Would definitely recommend the free walking tour offered. 2 euro gyros and the Nutella crepes just up the road was a delight to find.
