A great institution! Manages to be really well run and organised without seeming bossy and irritating. These guys know how to host us, and have thought of everything. It's the 5th or 6th time I've stayed and will always use it as my AMS base. Can't recommend enough.
A real gem of a place. Very helpful and laid back hosts, friendly guests and excellent value for money in this city. It's very convenient for the airport and easyish to reach from the city centre by train and auto. I have stayed 3 more nights than I originally booked because I had such a great time here.
I love this place so much. Second visit this summer and it was better than last time. Back soon, I hope.
Fantastic as usual. My favorite place to stay in the city.
I stayed here in 2005 and so rebooked in 2015. Still absolutely fantastic. Jelena is the best host -- very friendly and genuine. The place is spotless and comfortable. Quiet out of season, almost like having an apartment to yourself. Large living room to socialise in, kitchen with all equipment and basic ingredients provided (free tea and coffee). Comfortable beds. Very central location. PS it's (unbelievably) not in Rough Guide to Croatia. It's like Zagreb's best kept secret.
Incredibly good place. Lovely family who run it. Great food (breakfast incl even if you are only paying $20 for a dorm room) and an in-house restaurant across the street too for dinner. Access to swimming pool next door. Have already recommended to travellers I've met who were on their way via Antalya...
Second time I've stayed here. Really great staff and location. I'm over 40 but they still let me stay ;)
Great relaxed atmosphere, fantastic breakfasts (cook your own poffertjes and eggs). It's refreshing to be outside the city and the train and shuttle combination to get there is easy.
Was a pub/bar until recently so has new clean facilities. Location is brilliant: midway between main train station & sea front (
This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. It is friendly, well run, full of like-minded travellers and in an excellent location. Subway station 30 seconds out the door, but also only 10 minutes walk to East Village, Soho/Nolita, Bowery area etc. You can even walk to Williamsburg in less than half an hour! Thank you Hanna and staff for making my visit to NYC so special.
The room design really is breathtaking. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and the location on Long Street is fantastic. Highly recommended.
The perfect place for a weekend away. We chose it because it is cool to have your own front door key and lots of space. The owners are really really friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect -- a few minutes walk from the centre but in a characterful "real" area of the city. Really recommended.
Very friendly staff. Definitely one of the new breed of hostels with funky design, modern pine bunks and unlimited web access etc. I got a little tired of the other guests (18 year old gap year students playing noisily on the computer till 5 am every night) but that's not the hostel's fault.
An unbelievable deal. I was upgraded to a private room, and for this price in Venice this was exceptional. I think the location of rooms varies, but mine was on a quiet canal 10 mins from the station, in a very smart palazzo. Very clean, ensuite with TV too, and breakfast included. The staff at the reception in the San Marco Accademia were really welcoming and friendly. Utterly recommended.
Not a hostel at all, it's a four star hotel in the city centre. I feel bad for saying it's only averagely "fun" and "characterful" but it isn't your usual 'meet travellers' kind of place, it's more like a soulless business hotel. HOWEVER, it's really *very* posh and a total bargain at 30 euro a night per person. The location is outstanding, the rooms are huge and immaculate. If you're planning a weekend away it's perfect because you can walk everywhere in Bilbao city centre, have a tram stop just outside and a metro station within 5 mins at Abando for going to the coast etc. You probably won't spend much time in the hotel itself.
The first place I stayed, so hard to compare. The hostel didn't seem very sociable but maybe it was just me being shy, and anyway, it's supposed to be a calm non-stonery place and that's just what I wanted. The staff are super friendly and it felt safe and clean there. I'd recommend it to anyone.
