Corniglia Dream Rooms

Cinque Terre, Italy

This place was extremely hard to find and we chose them because they said they take credit card. Wrong. They do not so had to pay unneccessary ATM fees to get cash. Once we got our room we enjoyed the beautiful village of Corniglia. Would have appreciated being given a map or told some high points to see. Really this is just a family who is renting out a room that speaks little english. Don't go in thinking it will be anything like a hostel and be ready to pay cash.

Hostel Santa Monaca

Florence, Italy

The one main good thing about this hostel is the location. Staff was friendly too. Rooms were rather dirty and the beds were uncomfortable and didn't feel very clean.

Generator Venice

Venice, Italy

This place was really nice. So glad we decided to stay in Venice as opposed to Mestre. Yes, the water rides fron Venice to the hostel were expensive but riding the boats were all part of the experience. The rooms were extremely cramped but doable. The bar downstairs was wonderful. Great service and great food. Not over priced either. Didn't think there was enough bathrooms/showers for everyone. Also directions suck. Need to be updated to say get off at the Zitelle or Redentore stops.

Respau Eco Hostel

Como, Italy

This place is a wonderful place in the forest, however takes over one hour by foot from the train station and up a huge hill. Once got there was great. Great people. Great food. However for backpackers that wanted to see Lake Como this place is very inconvenient. It is very hard to find and DEFINITELY call ahead to get a ride. However if traveling without a phone you are screwed. Also only try and find this place for the first time in the daylight.

River Lodge

Interlaken, Switzerland

We were supposed to stay here but actually booked our hostel after their closing time of 6pm, which was not mentioned anywhere on the Hostelworld website. Showed up at 10pm and no one to be found. Tried ringing the phone however no one answered. Luckily we found another place to stay. One positive was that they agreed to cancel our room without charge. However we did lose the deposit to the Hostelworld.

Cool & Chic Hostel

Barcelona, Spain

This hostel was fantastic. The staff was amazing. They let us check in early and gave us a fan for the evening. The showers were refreshing and probably the best I've used in a hostel. Also the location was very easy to get to via the subway. Highly recommend.


Really liked that the beds that had curtains. Very nice when rude hotel mates came home late and turned the light on. Location was alright. Pretty by the canal. Nice to have restaurant/bar close by, however did attract the party crowd. Wifi didn't work in room. :-(

Shelter City

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Location was fantastic. Stayed in large room and there was no privacy. Missed my light and chargers that i have had at other hostels. Just loads of bunk beds. Showers were small and rather gross. Pretty expensive for one night stay.

Odyssee Globetrotter Hostel

Berlin, Germany

This hostel was really unique. Stayed in a large room with lots of bed but felt private. Appreciated the light and charger with each bed. Bathrooms were good as well. Close to metro. Would stay again. Got in early and they were very accomdating. Thanks!

One World Hostel

Krakow, Poland

This place was fantastic. When checked in got a tour of the place so that was really nice. Location was just two blocks from the square and two blocks from the train station. Everyone was very helpful. The wifi was amazing. Best we've had in Europe. Would definitely stay again. :-) Only down side was the room was rather warm at night.


This hostel was great. Would highly recommend. Only bad part was the nasty bathrooms. But the atmosphere was great! Thanks for a fun time!


Interlaken, Switzerland

This hostel was really neat except you had to pay 5 franks for a towel. And the internet is really expensive as well. The atmosphere was neat along with the old building.

Hotel Saint Sebastien

Paris, France

The hotel was really nice except didn't have a lot of the amenities they advertise. There are no shower curtains so the bathroom gets wet whenever someone showers and the staff is not fluent in many languages. Very hard to communicate!


This hostel was a great place to say. The staff was wonderful and the breakfast was the best thus far on my travels. The only negative is if you are a female walking alone, be sure to get to the hostel before dark! The distance is not bad at all, however the walk alone does get creepy at night!
