Great location just off on the main street in Minsk. The owner Oksana is very helpful on visa applications process and what to see in Minsk. More an apartment than a hostel in the usual sense but we found it a very good place to stay in Minsk.

20th Apr 2011

Sem and Lucia were great, they were really quick to reply to any questions before we arrived and really helpful and friendly while we were in Trapani. The only minor downside is that the apartments are a little difficult to find but they are in a great location in the centre of the old city.

Very good place to stay on Perissa Beach. Very useful recommendations on quad bike hire and where to eat on the beach. Transfers from the port and to the airpoty made life much easier for us.

Good location in the middle of Manchester, slightly seedy though. Our room was ok other lads in the group got much a better room so could be worth looking at the options when you get there. Does the job for a weekend in Manchester at a decent price.

Good location in the medina, can be a little hard to find though. The staff were great and the free internet & mint tea were nice touches. I´d be happy to stay in Hotel Central again.

Great location - right by the sea, but its pretty hard to find. Forio is a nice town, very chilled and the perfect place to unwind in the sun. The trip up to the family restaurant was well worth it - the food is great. Can be hard to find the brothers who run the place at times.

Great staff, very helpful in every way. Great location in the centre of the city. Very good breakfast. The atmospeher is a mix of hotel and hostel so its not the cheapest option but you really get what you pay for in the Perminalen. Highly recommended.

Location is very central but pretty sleazy - there were junkies shooting up across the road. Very few showers 2 for 20/30 rooms so get an ensuite room. Staff were great but not a place I'd stay in again.
