if you ask the airport shuttle leaves you near by the hostel. (it is walking distance to bus/train station). i suggest you write an email with your arrival time before you go. we didn't have any problems but sometimes there are no one working there since this is off season.

Alegria's Hostel

Bogota, Colombia
80%

La candelaria is the old town. You'd probably want to stay here if you want to see the town. Taxis have tariffs. You check the kilometer and then the price range. Airport will cost 10 usd portal norte to go to Guatavita or Zipa -if you have time you should- 10000 pesos. If you are travelling day time, use the transmilenio. They have their own route so they go faster than taxis during rush hours. ASK for a lower bunk bed, upper beds are not really safe -no handles/bars. I was afraid of falling.

sheets were dirty. on Saturdays sometimes staff party with guests, which is cool unless they disappear for long time and you need something from them during that period.

there are too many people partying and making noises and the staff are not "always there" -they forgot to tell me where my pillow is, and i had arrived late. I had to sleep without a pillow the first night because I didn't know they were in the lockers. I just didn't want to wake up other people in the room by going out and in again... not a happy start. but wifi is perfect

Soriania Hotel

Accra, Ghana
57%

Soriana is far away of the town. so on top of 40-45 usd you have to pay 5-10 usd to go to the city center. there are trotros for less than a dollar but you will have to change at Accra mall (45 mn distance in rush hour.) Not very clean but aircondition works perfectly. They ask for 25 usd for airport transfer you can get it cheaper at the airport.It is difficult to find the place at night. (or even day time.) you have to know where it is to find it. The road is endless and everywhere is same

Athens Backpackers

Athens, Greece

Even though I thought I was booking a room at Athens Backpackers apparently they are selling rooms for 2 different hostels and I when I booked a "deluxe" room, I ended up in Athens Studios. Backpackers has a communal place, where you can have free tea or coffee and sit with your friends. Studios doesn't. The breakfast ends around 9h30 am and there is no communal area except for downstairs bars. (More expensive than regular bars.) I had paid for 3 nights but I survived 2 and l left 1 day early.

Bugs in the room. lizard in the room. the shower blow up. Plastics fall on my head. No a/c. (I am told they have rooms with a/c though. I stayed in singe room.) But tour they arranged were nice and prices was good. I had the best tuktuk driver I had in siem reap (he was my 3rd tuktuk driver.) Which is important if you are making a 3 day temple visit. Even though I paid for 8 night, I left the 5th. I couldn't survive there longer. you have better options

Hostel Riad Marrakech Rouge

Marrakech, Morocco
46%

if you pay hostel price for 1 bed (100) it is ok. But ensuite room was a room with a toilet separated by a shower curtain. Bed was impossible to sleep -floor would be more comfortable. it is impossible to find the place in the medina where there no names on the streets or signs. So when you enter the medina or the square, there are people who "help" you then ask you for 100-150 dh for showing you the way. the instructions given by the hostel are pretty useless. There is no internet.

Dear Zeynep Many thanks for your review. Several issues you have raised here need addressing. Firstly, people who 'help' do sometimes ask for a lot of money to bring you to the hostel - you are not obliged to pay that much, and our staff are happy to help with this. It is your choice to use our airport pickup service which it appears costs the same as the gentlemen who wishes to 'help you'. Alternative, as our confirmation email suggests, you are welcome to call us from the square and we will collect you at no cost to yourselves - this was an option you chose not to take us up on. In terms of the instructions for directions - we contend their 'uselessness' strongly. You are sent, with the confirmation email - a comprehensive map of the area with clear directions which leads you step by step to the hostel. Some guests are better than others at following these directions, but they are in fact really very good. There are no road names on the street - welcome to Marrakech! That is why our directions are so detailed. Finally - at the time of your booking, indeed there was no internet, neither was it advertised so this should not have been a surprise or disappointment. However, Marrakech Rouge now does indeed have wi-fi - it is quick and available throughout the hostel! Best wishes for your future travels and bear in mind that Marrakech is a unique destination full of adventure and different to your home country. Embrace the adventure!

Even though we had informed them -and received confirmation- that we will arrive late, they had processed our reservation as "no show". this created problems because it was 2 am and no one knew anything. we were given the room but next day we had misunderstandings about the payment. the staff were extremely rude. they resolved the issues but our vacation had already started badly. the walls are like paper. you can hear everybody and in the morning you wake up when they do.

Orchid Hotel

Hue, Vietnam

Perfect place to stay especially if you are a couple. One day, we returned to our room and found rose petals on our bed! It was a five star hotel experience. we had some problems and they resolved all of it. They didn't try to sell us anything, aircon and hot/cold water was working perfectly. location is right at the center. Breakfast was the best we had so far in any hotel in Vietnam. We used some of the hotel services like laundry -all were priced reasonably.

Saigon Mini Hotel

This is the best choice for Saigon. They made our trip safe and thanks to their staff, we never had any problems. One of the few hotels/hostels that don't try to sell you things (tours, services etc..) or send you to inappropriate places just to make a few dollar more. They arranged a safe taxi drop of for us, we didn't get ripped off. Their tours were ok, we got what we paid for, no bad surprises. room was good, air-conditioner was working properly.

Hi Zeynep, Thanks for your comments, glad to hear you found your stay excellent value for money! The street in front of our hostel is currently being renovated into a fantastic shared open space. This should be completed soon and will ensure the area around Base Auckland continues to be a vibrant, pedestrian friendly space to enjoy! We hope to welcome you back soon!

1. I arrived at 1 o\'clock and they didn\'t let me in until 2 o\'clock. there is no luggage room if you arrive early or late. No cafe nearby so waiting is a torture. 2. drinking is not allowed in the hostel. so you\'ll have to go to a bar each and every time you want to drink a beer and it will cost. 3. close to station. perfect for early trains/buses.
