It is just perfect! A very friendly staff, a very good location, a very decent place to stay, perfect value for money. What does one need more?

404 Hostel, Cologne, Germany

The hostel is located away from the center and is basically a house transformed in a hostel with a couple of large rooms. The bathroom is moderately clean with a shower cabin that needs to be handled carefully as the sliding doors are falling off. The reception is open only at certain hours and if you leave before the reception opens up, you can't get your deposit back...or you get no key when checking in, forcing you to stay at the hostel and spending your evening there!

I know how to handle this review. Do you feel better now? It is nowhere written that the hostel is in the center of town. 4 stops by underground from central station. Guests who need to check out before 9am have to give back the key the evening before until 11pm to receive back the deposit. By the way the sliding doors didn't fell of. They are still there.

What can I say? The hostel is very well located and has a friendly staff and all but it is the most noisy hostel I have stayed at. The hostel is next to an Irish Pub and is located between a number of cafés with people having a drink outside or just passing through. The two nights I stayed at the hostel I slept very poorly because of all the noise. A pity really because the location is awesome :-(

It is all very recommandable but just bear in mind that the front rooms are a little noisy given the location of the Hostel... And being in the close vicinity of Johannes am Feuersee, do not miss this true jewel!

HORRIBLY NOISY !!! The hostel is well located, a decent place to stay with a useful large kitchen but be aware of it, the hostel is the most noisy place I've ever stayed. Laying in bed in room 105 on the first floor you can almost distinctively hear the people talk to the guy at the reception desk on the ground floor if it wasn't for the music playing non-stop in the corridors. One thing is for sure, the neighbors will have no secrets for you...

Nice hotel very close to the city center. Da girl at the desk, a cute looking blonde from Freiburg (the way she talks about her city makes u feel like going to visit the place asap), is very friendly and helpful. I'll definitely come back!

Very, very great place to stay in Cologne, some 150m away from the Neumarkt. The room is very modern and clean and the girl at the desk, Annelies, is an absolute sweetheart. What can I say? I shall return!

It is very much a discrete place. The room is decorated in a very minimalistic way but there is a mini-kitchen and a tv. The bathroom is pretty small and it all feels like a student room. Not a bad choice at all.

Hotel Elbe, Frankfurt, Germany

The hotel is pretty much ok. The people at the reception desk were not that friendly and seem a bit reluctant to speak English. Too bad for a city that must have more than its share of oversea tourists... The girls taking care of breakfast were really cute and friendly. Most of all its important to realize when booking that the hotel is located really close to the main station but also some 30 meters from the red light district with its marginal population. It does not feel unsafe but its surprizing to see so much tramps, drug addicts and lost people gathered in the Bahnhofviertell. Nevertheless, given the prize of the room, its pretty ok for Frankfurt/Main.

Given the low cost, it is not the baddest of all choices but by far it is not the best hostel to book. Maybe somebody could tell the cleaning team what the verb "to clean" means?!

A little cosy place, very well located with a very friendly staff = a nice stay in Cologne at a very modest prize. Da woman at the desk, a Ukrainian with a Belarus passport, should not be told she looks Romanian ;-)...

Butterfly Villa Hostel, Bucharest, Romania

Very good hostel. Clean, decent, safe, easy, everything is very much ok and much more than that. Everybody (staff and guess) is very friendly and it all feels more like a big family gathering then a hostel. One thing U should be aware of when booking is the barking of da dogs. Da neighbors have 2 dogs and they bark a lot at night and da street dogs join them in an 'enjoyable' concert... But that is the only negative comment you can give about the hostel. I certainly deserves all the positiv comments it gets. First choice when visiting Bucharest!!!
