Because of the shuttles provided the location is good for getting to Cinque Terre, but it is tricky getting there initially. 3 showers on second floor were all faulty - one had a bad door, another no water pressure, and the third didn't drain and flooded the floor. Not enough outlets in rooms; a power bar is really needed. Otherwise a comfortable stay.
Amazing staff - very helpful and friendly! Great rooms and kitchens, washrooms were clean tho sometimes there was a wait for showers, there were only a few. Convenient location but be sure to check a map beforehand as it is quite easy to miss. Unfortunately wifi only worked in kitchen and small common room, shame it didn't work in the rooms. Overall a great stay :)
great location and very comfortable beds. Stayed in the large dorm and it was stuffy even tho it was only May. There are in room lockers but some are way too high. One bathroom door didn't lock and the other had a drain that didn't work. Luckily the bathrooms downstairs are in better shape. A good atmosphere but music was way too loud early in the evening. I wanted to have dinner there one night because it seemed like good value but I couldn't be bothered with so much noise and went elsewhere.
A lot of thought and care has been put into the hostel, and as a result it's a great place to stay. Kitchen is well equipped, just a little small. Some of the bathrooms could use a shelf in the shower to put soap, etc. A little out of the centre, but easy to get to once you figure out transportation. That being said, figure out your transport before you get there - hostel website tells you which tram/buses you can take, but find out where the stops are and how to get tickets.
Best hostel staff I have ever met - everybody is friendly and helpful. Metro is very convenient and 24hr day pass is worth it. I was in 2 different rms - wifi did not work in one of them (in the adjoining building). Nice atmosphere, but music was always loud, hard to get work done if wifi didn't work and you needed to go to common area. One of the bathrooms (for rm #2) needs some hooks to hang up clothes, etc. Room and day lockers will not fit larger luggage. Otherwise, thanks for a great stay!
Rooms were comfortable. Bathrooms were good but not enough for so many people. Patio has amazing view, common room is comfortable, and kitchen is good except stove is very slow. Close to West train station, but you get a transport card so easy to get to Ost train station. Unfortunately wifi only in common areas and is horrible during heavy use. Otherwise a comfortable stay.
Stunning location. If you can't catch a train that stops at Territet, take bus 102. Don't know why they don't mention that. No transport card provided like some hostels in Switzerland, but you will always want to walk. Be prepared for noisy school groups, noise carries dreadfully in the halls. Good at conserving energy but lights are on sensor and some are broken / not sensored at all. Constantly looking for a switch in dark, dangerous on stairs. Wifi only in lobby. Reception hrs horrible.
Despite not being near the main town or the train station, the metro and bus were frequent and easy to take. The place is quite large so be prepared for school groups - when that happens the washrooms can get a little crowded. No kitchens but breakfast is good and dining room excellent. Rooms are spacious but quite dark, and there are no lockers despite the rooms being so spacious. They only have bank-style safety deposit boxes at the front desk. Otherwise a pleasant stay.
Good location and good facilities, especially day lockers and in-room lockers. Very good recycling options. Unfortunately there is no breakfast tho there is a kitchen every floor - but you cannot use the fridge unless you get a key. Wifi on all floors and connection was good.
Great location, and beds are comfortable. Getting breakfast and transport card were great bonuses. Lockers are just outside the room so are convenient, but very noisy when people are opening and closing lockers all the time. Showers need hooks closer to the shower stalls, instead of 2-3 stalls down. Overall a pleasant stay!
Spacious and comfortable rooms and kitchen. Good wifi and in-room lockers will fit luggage. Travel card is great for getting around town. The staff I met were very friendly. Hallways are not well insulated so horribly noisy at night if people are being inconsiderate - bring ear plugs.
Great location, showers, and beds. The staff I met were very nice. Kitchen ok but fridge is small. Only small lockers for valuables in room. If they took out the wardrobe (that everybody just dumped stuff in) there would be room for large lockers for luggage. Otherwise it's a crowded with everybody's luggage all over the place. Need a power bar in room, like they have in lobby so it's easier to charge stuff. Street outside is noisy on nice evenings, but you should have ear plugs when hosteling.
Really close to Manhattan by subway. All the staff were friendly and the facility is great - everything is new, clean, and very hip. Beds very comfortable. More hooks or towel rods in the showers would've been useful. As for security, they use swipe cards but they're not needed until you get to your floor, and often the hallway doors were propped open or didn't close properly (maybe just on second floor?). Got a free subway map but a detailed street map would've been useful too. Great stay!
Very accessible location, staff were amazing, and really nice atmosphere in the cafe and courtyard. Girls dorms open right to the courtyard so it can be noisy, but I always sleep with earplugs in hostels. Girls dorms were full but there was never a line up for showers. More outlets are definitely needed in the dorms, although you can charge in other open areas. Some beds were really close together so it was hard to get in and out. Overall a great stay :)
Comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Lots of shelving to use, but would have preferred lockers. Great breakfast and all the staff are super friendly. Very close to HS station (not central station) but only 10-15min walk to centre. Site says wifi in lobby, but it will work well in some rooms. Unfortunately our showerhead in the girls dorm was all clogged up so the water sprayed everywhere and there wasn't enough pressure. Hard to follow their suggestions to have 5min showers to conserve water.
Excellent location for museums, close to parks and away from crowded, narrow streets in the old city. Loved the neighbourhood. Bit of a walk to the city centre / station but the tram station a few steps away. Beds were comfortable but safes didn't all work and there were no lockers. Always had fresh towels but the cleaning staff would not clean bathroom counters or table tops and the room was dusty. Comfortable stay overall as long as u don't count on housekeeping or staff too much.
Close to tube station and a main road (lots of shops, restaurants, cinema). Building is a bit of a maze but has lots of character. Girl's attic was old but very clean and privacy panels and lockers were good. Hair driers by showers were a nice touch. Didn't have issues finding a plug for charging my stuff - may depend where your bed is. Only issue is that though wi-fi is free it is only available in lobby and signal is not dependable.
If you're looking for a hotel this may not meet your standards, but if you're hosteling this place is good, though more expensive. Location is close to historical center and also Gare du Nord so you save money by not taking the metro. Room was older, but comfortable, warm and very clean. Wear earplugs though, doors are thin. Breakfast was v. good and included. Wi-fi was 3 euro per day, but they charged me 5 euros for 4 nights which was a good deal.
Renovations are going well - the place will look great when done. Right now missing things like curtains and mirrors. Not sure if they will have lockers in the rooms, which would be nice. Beds very comfortable. No hot water when I showered and spoke to another guest who mentioned that hot water was on and off for her.
They have a second building down the street just for girls, which is a good idea. I was on the ground floor and the front door was very noisy - have earplugs. Room was comfortable but had no lockers and not enough lighting. Also not enough bathrooms, but showers did have good warm water. Breakfast is just cereal and toast but is free. Need to take tram but very close to station and by a very nice park.
Location is excellent, rooms are clean and comfortable and have lockers. Unfortunately the extras quickly add up; wi-fi is 5£ / day which is not reasonable for budget travellers, luggage storage is not free outside of the dorms, and breakfast not included.
Good location, lockers are big, and WiFi is excellent. Walls are thin though, bring earplugs because you can hear everything in the hallways. Rooms with ensuite need garbage cans in the bathroom. Would stay here again!
Neighbourhood is quiet and there is a good grocery store about a 5min walk away. Easy to get to most attractions in Inner Stadt - I only used the U to get to Schonbrun and the airport. Very clean and quite new. Free WiFi only available in lobby but signal strength is good. If you want WiFi in your room you`ll have to pay extra. Would stay here again!
Enjoyed my stay! Linen & towel included which is rare in Scandinavia. Rooms nice, bar and chill out areas great. Wi-fi only available in lobby or 1st floor, and is hard to connect to the network sometimes. Location good, tho currently there is construction right in front so it`s noisy early in the morning. Staff are nice, tho new and still getting a hang of things. I needed a 2nd booking and they told me there wasn`t a bed in the 8ppl room, but there was on hostelworld.
Stayed in 66 bed room, which isn't too bad. Bring earplugs and flashlight since they have 1 master light switch (off 11pm, on 8am). Towels and linen cost extra, which is normal for scandinavia, but pillows and blankets cost extra too! Since it's summer I was fine with just my own sheets and inflatable pillow. Could only find 3 female showers, but there is no line up at night. Wi-fi range not very far. Lastly, they only take cash! Can't pay with credit card. Overall a pretty good hostel.
Great location, rooms are good tho crowded if there is a lot of luggage. Kitchen could use more dishes and cutlery. Wi-fi works on each floor, which is very convenient. Reception is closed from 12-4 which is a little inconvenient, although they do have a kiosk where you can check yourself in but I didn`t use it so don`t know how user friendly it is.
Location good, rooms are great and staff are friendly. Kitchen is great but closes at noon for cleaning. Wi-fi doesn`t work everywhere. There is a store next door but it`s not great so take the extra 10mins and walk back to Triangln and go to the Hemkop across from the McDonalds.
Rooms were spacious and clean, kitchen has lots of room and lots of fridge space. No issues with wi-fi in rooms. Sometimes a bit of a wait for a free washroom. Close to a main street but a bit of a walk to main parts of town. Tram is close by though.
Location is good, staff were always friendly. Rooms were spacious, include sheets, and were v. clean. Liked having a TV! Breakfast included and is v. good. No kitchen for guest use though, and wi-fi only works in common room on main floor but it is free.
Staff were friendly and the location is convenient. They use codes for doors which is safe, but troublesome if you`re not good at remembering numbers. Common areas and kitchen are spacious. Sometimes have to walk far to find a free bathroom. Quite a party atmosphere so take heed if you`re looking for some quiet and rest!
They advertise "hotel beds at hostel prices" which may be the case for rooms with fewer beds, but not the 12 person dorm. It was quite crowded and the room was kind of run down. There is no common area except the kitchen, which is quite small. Not enough fridge space.
Place was comfortable and the rooms were nice and v. clean. Not close to a lot of attractions but the neighbourhood is good, there are some lively streets nearby, and the metro is close. I found they turned on the lights in the courtyard too late and turned them off too early so I had to fumble around in the dark a few times. Long lines at breakfast, but food good. There might have been recycling in the lobby, but couldn't find any near or in the rooms.
Place is quite new and mostly quite clean (girls floor, at least). Bunks are great - curtain, light, and outlets for each. Always v. lively in the hostel, but not too noisy in rooms. Neighbourhood kind of crappy, tho it's a nice walk down the by the channel and there are no safety issues. Would be nice if floors/rooms had recycling for all the paper and plastic that gets thrown away while travelling, and a communal bin in the room would be nice (for things that people leave behind to share).
Rooms were spacious - there would have been room for lockers, a table and some chairs, but room was quite bare. There are small security boxes only, good for passports but not things like laptops or large cameras. Nobody really checks who comes in, and many rooms left their doors open since it was so hot. Location is great, internet access is fast, $1/10mins which is reasonable if you're just quickly checking your e-mail before having a day of fun.
Great place :) Convenient location, staff are super friendly and helpful, and it's always clean. However, the walls are a bit thin so it can be a little noisy if you're trying to turn in before quiet time.
Lockers were great and having my own key was convenient. Free internet is great, tho sometimes the line up was long. I stayed 2 seperate times and both experiences were completely opposite! The 1st time the room was freezing and there was no hot water, and the bathroom wasn't always clean. The 2nd time it was warm, and I chose to use a different bathroom and that one was usually clean and had hot water.
Great location! Common room / kitchen are good, but washrooms (girls) could be cleaned more often. Room was a little stuffy unless air conditioner was on, but was otherwise roomy and beds were comfy.
One of the best hostels I've stayed at! However, shower heads could use more pressure, and my room was really noisy (all the Saturday night partying outside). Then again, my room faced the street, and I think the window might have been faulty. Also a little chilly by the window at night.
Neighbourhood is safe and convenient by subway. It's nice to be in a classy area for that price! Not a party hostel ( I prefer that), but there are a few decent bars on 3rd Ave. Common room is a little cramped sometimes. Some beds are v. noisy, but I was lucky and mine was just perfect. Lockers are a little small. Some of the staff are great, but some are not v. nice / helpful. Try Yura's Bakery / Cafe one block away on 93rd St and 3rd Ave!
