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!).
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.
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.
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!).
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).
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.
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).
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.
Good value for money if you want your own room in London, but not a very sociable place.
Nice guesthouse, good value for money. Only stayed for one night.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great spot in the centre of Manchester, recommended.
Decent hostel, good for nightlife as the hostel organises a lot of evenings out. Room was quite cramped and too hot (air conditioning broken), but other facilities were fine.
Mama's hostel is a total winner. Stayed there twice now - highly recommended.
Super friendly staff. There is free pasta and wine for all guests on some nights. The place is generally very cosy.
The 4 course Italian meal in the evening is top class and very sociable. Best food I had in Italy.
Really nice hostel, everything brand new and the room was one of the best I\'ve had in a hostel. Decent free breakfast. Would definitely recommend.
Dull hostel; can stay in much better in London (such as Ace) or go to a Travelodge.
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.
this hostel made my day, very friendly and hospitable, defintley we are back
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.
Great location, didn't spend much time in the hostel, but seemed a good spot.
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.
Nice hostel, though a bit out of the centre of London.
Top class hostel - great atmosphere. If you want to party in Split this place is ideal.
Right next to the main square. Owner very helpful with directions, places to go, etc.
Nice hostel, really good staff. Facilities could be better though, not many bathrooms.
Near nightlife and train station. Free coffee/tea and snacks, etc. Recommend - one of the best hostels I've stayed in.
Try to get in Wombats - much better
Good bar and food.
Pretty good hostel, but Wombats next door is better.
Very good breakfast and nice rooms. Staff were prettz slow on checkout, etc.
Ok hostel, better there are much better ones in Berlin. Try to get into Circus.
Fun hostel, but got bitten all over by fleas so wouldn't recommend!
Really good breakfast and good bar.
The bar's quite focused on folk music, but has a quality selection of Belgian beers. The location is ideal, next to the awesome cathedral and lots of pubs and restaurants.
Pretty good bar. Extra charges for sheets and breakfast. 6 euro bike hire - recommended!
Definitely a dope smokers hostel, allowed to smoke in the bar, etc. Wouldn't recommend for people who don't want to smoke weed!
I am covered in bites from bed bugs - not impressed!
Average hostel, reasonable place to stay in Belfast, good location. Plenty of pubs nearby.
The bar is a winner. Other than that a pretty basic hostel, could do better in Prague.
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.
