The pluses: Great staff member! Great location! Comfortable! The minuses: patchy Wifi in the private room. MIND YOUR HEAD! - very low door. Ouch.

The most outstanding feature are the uber helpful and genuine staff! Ive stayed in hostels in 100 or so countries and the staff here really stood out! Thank you guys! Downside is the bathrooms whilst clean are so large with many cubicles it doesnt feel that comfortable.

Hi, Thanks for taking your time to leave us a review. So glad that you had a wicked time at The Attic. We have a very good team of staff here that are all wanting help everyone, genuinely wanting to socialize, and happy to go the extra mile to ensure guest satisfaction. We are sorry that you felt the bathrooms were to big but they have to be as as small as the hostel is, We still have the whole hostel sharing bathrooms. We do hope you come back sometime :) The Attic team :)

Great lounge and helpful staff. However still feels a little too much like a business with the limited wifi that can runnout quick (depending on device and consumption by background stuff) - in my case barely lasted 15 mins. There are mosquitoes in this town and my room had 50-100 at night as the window had been left open on check in. Fortunately the ceilings are high and they ddi not bite but it wasnt a comfortable stay and with reception leaving at 10pm there wasnt much help at hand.

Quite fine except the reception staff guy was clearly quite new and instead of saying he didnt know something or asking was giving answers which were neither confident nor clear- bypassed eventually by waiting till the other receptionist to be free.

Great- same as all of them by the looks of it though. Wifi is reliable in the communal area but not the room. Decent breakfast with options compared to hostels in other countries.

Nice hostel- the beds are very comfortable and the staff are really nice nice and helpful. Clean. However, it was disappointing to not have anyone on site for the two problems that I had that would have been better resolved at night rather than the next morning.

Great location; lively; has what you would need; lots of tours on offer. Only dampener was two of the staff members in particular were very nonchalant and one even made an insulting and offensive allegation unnecessarily- although did apologise when this was pointed out.

Two great things: location and staff (esp Ola). But the actual place is not a comfortable place to relax, the common room is the pub and the rooms are very tight and basic. While there was nothing dirty per se, it just didnt feel clean or comfortable. A place to go if you won't spend any time indoors or sleeping (day or night)

Great location, nice staff, nice common area. But the general lay out of the hostel isnt so conducive to atmosphere and the showers and bathrooms could be set up better with more privacy and sinks within toilets.

I would be amazed if there was any better located hostel in Moscow. it is near everything and close enough to explore in all directions. Also situated in what seems a safe neighbourhood. The rooms and bathrooms are clean if nothing fancy. Really helpful guys at reception who answered everything. Only thing is being a big building over multiple floors is hard to generate atmosphere between others. Had a great stay here, thankyou.

more nowing people say its the best in shanghai, i can olnly say the rest must be pretty average too. this place is fine, it works. but the internet connection is really bad, the shared bathrooms better not spoken about, and he staff variable in assistance. it was pretty quiet so hard to talk much about the nice lower bar area as i didnt use it much.

seoul is really big without a natural centre, but this place is is a good lively area with all amenities. the hostel is clean and a big plus was the nice cornflakes and organe juice unlmited breakfast! the owner is really helpful too in advising where and what to dobut you will need to have some ideas yourself first. no complaints.

Great staff make this place- so nice and so helpful! Location is good for Bucharest- but can be a little tricky to find through the back streets although they seemed safe enough when walking. Really nice tea room/common room! And have some beautiful cats wandering around, though it did mean finding some cat hair around the place.

No major problems with the hostel, but nothing particularly special to report either. One thing that is an annoyance but by no means unique to this hostel is that it is one of those that are run like a business rather than house- so pay everything up front, pay for a locker, pay for internet and plain touristy advice rather than something more personal.

So the rating probably doesnt quite do it justice as this is not a bad hostel at all! But....there was quite a mix+up initially with which bed I had and it seemed the staff werent sure what was happening. Although otherwise they are great. The breakfast is plentiful and varied. Great ratio of bathrooms anbd beds are very comfortable. However, the atmosphere is not very convivial and barely anyone speaks to anyone, there is only one sitting computer. Hence the ratings.

Nice clean hostel in the centre of town. Great breakfast. Didnt meet anyone of similar age but then that may just be becuase of other variables. However, internet for 50 NOK an hour for a standing up metallic terminal is insane.

Hostel is in a greta location with everything closeby- especially eating places. SThe two newby girls are a bundle of fun. However, be prepared for sometimes lengthy queues for the solitary bathroom and solitary toilet and solitary computer terminal.
