I was fairly disappointed with this hostel. I found the staff less friendly than most other hostels I've stayed at and I was bitten by fleas so wouldn't stay there again.

Pleasant little hostel. Good breakfast included in the price and location was convenient. Push button showers were mildly annoying but facilities otherwise fine. Hostel isn't staffed at night but that didn't cause me any problems.

Queen Elizabeth Chelsea

Stayed for one night and it was ok. It's well located if you are going to the football at Chelsea (which I was) but not particularly well located for central London. There were triple bunks in my room which I didn't like. Given the wide choice of good hostels in London I doubt I would stay again.

Decent hostel. Has parking which was handy as I was travelling by car. Also do quite good food in the bar area. Breakfast was ok and included in the price. Overall, I wasn't blown away by the place but would stay there again.

Very good hostel which I would happily stay at again. Liked the nightly activities, especially the pizza making! I was a bit surprised at being charged nearly five pounds more by booking through hostelworld compared to the walk in price which I've never had at any other hostel. Good breakfast as well for 2 pounds extra.

Outstanding hostel. Delightful staff, very friendly atomosphere and fun activities organised every night (especially the chorizo feast cooked on the ceramic pig!).

Travel Joy Hostels Chelsea

London, England

Decent hostel with a pub on the ground floor. Location not the best though. We also paid £37 per night for a dorm which was expensive although it was during the Olympics so I would imagine prices are a lot lower normally. Still, fairly poor value at that price. Overall, I would say it is ok but there are much better options in London.

We had a twin room which was cheap, but not exceptionally so. The breakfast was pretty good as well. On the other hand the place lacked character and atmosphere and the service wasn't great (for example I had to wait 20 minutes or so to get my bag out of the left luggage). We also got sent to a building half a mile or so away from the main building we had booked into.

Like most YHA hostels, this was clean and well run with good facilities. Unfortunately, it lacked atmosphere and wasn't much fun, also like most YHA hostels! If you're staying with a group this is a good bet. If you want to meet people, I'd recommend Ambleside Backpackers.

Good value for a single room in central London and the breakfast was good. A lot of noise coming from the pipes in my room in the morning. Also, a lot of stairs to get to the room! Not the best place for meeting other travellers.

Only briefly stayed here and had no complaints, but wouldn\'t rush back either. It\'s part of a pub which is always handy.


Blue Sky Surf Lodge

This hostel was decent, but I didn\'t find it very friendly compared to other hostels I\'ve stayed at. Probably good if you\'re in a group, particularly if under 25s.

Quality hostel, very well located. There\'s also free overnight parking right outside. I would definitely stay again.


Ambleside Backpackers

Lake District, England
100%

One of my favourite hostels. Tony, who was looking after the place when I stayed, was extremely hospitable and even cooked dinner for some of the guests (the food was first class). This hostel is particularly good if you\'re planning to hike in the Lake District. There is help with finding good walking routes, weather charts and one of the better drying rooms I\'ve come across (you\'ll most likely get rained on in the Lakes - bring good waterproofs!).


93%

Quality hostel, like all of the Hatters hostels I\'ve stayed at. Located in the Jewellery Quarter which is one of the best locations for nightlife. Check out the Jamhouse or the Actress and Bishop (both a minute or two walking from the hostel).


Central Backpackers

Oxford, England
80%

Decent hostel in a good spot near the train station and centre of town. The outdoor area is quite nice. Could do with a better social area. There\'s a cramped TV room and an area with a couple of basic tables. Facilities are fine with good showers. I\'d stay there again.


The Thistle House

Edinburgh, Scotland

Nice guesthouse, quiet, more suited to older people (I booked this for my Mum and she liked, wouldn\'t personally stay here if visiting Edinburgh).


High Street Hostel

Edinburgh, Scotland
90%

I\'d recommend this hostel. Best place I\'ve stayed in Edinburgh so far (in the price range) and I\'ve been up there several times. Great pubs nearby on the Royal Mile. The location is ideal. Pool table is a nice touch and there was a good atmosphere.


LSE Passfield Hall

London, England

Good value for money if you want your own room in London, but not a very sociable place.

LSE Carr-Saunders Hall

London, England

Great value for money for a single room in London. However, if you\'re travelling on your own you\'re better off staying in a hostel. The breakfast was a bit of a disappointment.


Equity Point Marrakech

Marrakech, Morocco

Nice roof terrace. Had a massive ensuite bathroom in my dorm and the bunk beds were unusually large. The hostel sells beer which is helpful in the Medina as it\'s not the easiest place to get a drink! Good for meeting people too.


Living Cat's Hostel

Madrid, Spain
93%

The hostel bar is top class. This hostel is great for meeting people. It\'s party orientated, but the hostel bar closes at around 12 most nights so not too noisy if you want some sleep. If on the other hand you want to go out, a group tends to head out from the hostel bar every night and there are bars/clubs within stumbling distance open till 6am and beyond. Fabulous!


Globetrotter Inn London

London, England
83%

Good value for London, but the location isn\'t great (nice area, but far out from Central London). Decent bar with good meals. The breakfast was woeful.


Big Apple Hostel

Slightly grim hostel, particularly the dorms. However, the location is excellent. I also stayed at New York City Hostel and found that place more friendly.


HI - Boston Downtown

Boston, USA
70%

Not great, but you haven't got a massive choice of hostels in Boston. Not much atmosphere in the place, although they do organise a lot of activities. Staff were very helpful. Cleanliness was also a bit sketchy; showers were often dirty and my mate got bitten by fleas.


New York City Hostel

New York, USA
87%

The location of this hostel is ideal. You're bang in the centre of Manhattan with a roof terrace looking up at the Empire State Building - just the spot for a few beers in the evening! The building is a bit shabby and there are no locks on the bedroom doors, but to me those are pretty minor factors. Attracts a sociable crowd who enjoy a drink. Recommended.


UniXtra

Edinburgh, Scotland

These rooms are outstanding value - your own room for roughly the price of a dorm bed in a hostel! One drawback is that you're less likely to meet other travellers, but if you're not fussed about that then I'd definitely recommend.

Hayarkon 48 Hostel

Great place to meet travellers, ideal for those travelling alone. Would definitely recommend for those staying in Tel Aviv. Also, due to Israel being very small it is easy to stay in Tel Aviv and travel around the country on day trips.

Castle Rock Hostel

Had random people who weren't staying in the room coming in during the night, including a girl who sat on the bunk above me talking to herself for some time. On the plus side there are two nice lounges and the location is ideal.

Belfast International Youth Hostel

Just off one of the main streets for pubs and easy access from the bus station. Nice rooms. I\'d recommend if you\'re travelling with friends, but we didn\'t meet anyone there so maybe not the best for solo travellers.

Very homely. There is a large kitchen area with free food and hot drinks which serves as a good meeting place. The location is ideal, just off the main square. Only criticism is the stairs, quite hard work with heavy bags.

The best hostel I've stayed in. Really helpful staff and the rooms are hotel standard. Also, very good for meeting people. I was on my own and met lots of people for hearty drinking sessions.
