Reykjavik Backpackers

Reykjavik, Iceland

This place is a true hostel. It's located right in the middle of town, where you'd want to be, by all the bars restaurants and the famous church, reception is super helpful, there's places to chill and meet people, lockers, sufficient bathrooms and showers, bag storage, it's great! it's not overpriced so don't think you're getting ripped off. would highly recommend

Living Mad Hostel

Madrid, Spain

4-bed room was tiny, was very stuffy if you turned off the A/C, AC had to be turned on by asking the reception which got very annoying after the 1st time. Tiny kitchen, expensive pub crawls. No outside alcohol allowed in the hostel, this is ridiculous and just a way for them to make money from their bar, some of my favorite hostel memories are chilling drinking beers in a hostel common room. Free breakfast was adequate. Staff didn't seem overly friendly.


Hostel was good, cool people, cool staff, especially Polona and Katja at reception, they are also great chefs, 1euro pasta and sangria night was awesome, pub crawl was really fun, the only problem was that the rooms had no air condition, so it was extremely hot at night this making it incredibly uncomfortable. Avoid in August for this reason. Very clean.

Sant Jordi Hostel Gracia

Barcelona, Spain

Amazing hostel, best hostel I've ever stayed at! The actual building is very modern, completely centrally air conditioned (vital in the summer). Something awesome they do is turn the lights in all the bed rooms off at 11pm so that no one can turn them on while anyone is sleeping. The rooms were spacious (I was in a 6-bed), the bottomless sangria and pasta nights were delicious and only 3 euros, the free pub crawl every night was awesome, staff were friendly and cool, met some great people!

Camping La Sfinge

Cinque Terre, Italy

We got a tent, and the tent was actually quite nice, it even had a lock. Staff was very helpful, good wifi. FYI tent had no electricity or light so be sure to bring a flashlight. No lockers but you could leave stuff at the reception. Need to take the free shuttle to the train station (5 minutes ride) and then the train to one of the 5 cinque terre towns (~3 euros, 15 minute train ride, somewhat frequent trains).

Ostello Tramonti

Cinque Terre, Italy

Cool common room, easy to get to town with the hostel shuttle or bus, very friendly staff. Nice room with lots of light.


Great! Frequent busses into town, or even walk (35 minutes) if you prefer. Great pool. FYI, when you select a "Tent" on hostelworld, you get a tent you get to sleep in, you don't need to bring your own, great for backpackers on a budget. In the tent are 2 cots with a mattress pillow and blanket on each, bring your own sheets.

Hostel Beautiful 2

Rome, Italy

No kitchen was a bummer, rooms were actually very nice, spacious, looked like they were previously hotel rooms, nice bathroom in the room. Wifi was ok, it reset every now and then. Good for just sleeping in, wasn't really a "friendly hostel" atmosphere if you're looking for that.
