Great location next to Sloterdijk station. Easy access by train to Amsterdam Centraal station (5 min) and Schiphol Airport (10 min). Friendly staffs, but reception tends to be busy. Room is clean and comfortable, but my roommates used up all the toilet paper in the washroom (luckily I brought some toilet paper from a previous hostel).

Phoenix Hostel

London, England

Good: Great location, short walk to Edgware Road and Marylebone tube stations, quiet neighbourhood, friendly staffs, free wifi (accessible in the lobby, unstable in the rooms), cheap breakfast (only £1.50) Bad: Luggage storage not free (£2), bed very squeaky - even a slight body movement or a cough make the bed squeak like a dozen trains passing through a railway crossing... (Curiously, only my bed squeaks... The other beds in my room don't. I guess I'm just unlucky.)

Pil Pil Hostel

I love the location, which is close to Termibus (bus station). There's a tram stop right in front of the hostel and I can easily take the tram to Guggenheim, the Renfe train station, the old town and Atxuri train station (for Euskotren services to Gernika). The hostel itself is bright and cheerful, with a cosy dining room and a spacious courtyard at the back. Staffs and fellow roommates are friendly. If I return to Bilbao I will stay here again.

Great location right in the middle of the old town, with lots of pintxos bars around the area. The hostel itself is along a quiet street so it's peaceful at night. (There are notices to remind people that it is not a party place.) Staffs and fellow roommates were friendly and I felt like living in someone's home. If I return to San Sebastian I will stay here again.

Good location within walking distance to Campans Caffarelli metro station and St Sernin church. Friendly staffs, but the opening hours of the office is limited, especially in the morning (only from 10am to 12:30pm). My room is ok, with ensuite bathroom and kitchen. There's a Carrefour at Campans Caffarelli metro station so it's easy to buy things to cook in the room. There's also wifi in the room, but I find it unstable, especially when everyone is surfing at the same time.

Hotel Majestic

Montpellier, France
91%

I love the location - 5 min walk to the train station or Place de la Comedie. The hotel is along a narrow side-street, so the place is quiet. There is no lift, and my room is small, but at least the free wifi is fast and stable. It's value for money considering that I get a single room here for the same price as a dorm bed in Paris. At 7pm almost every shop in Montpellier closes. If hungry after 7pm, the nearest places for dinner are at Place de la Comedie.

Pop' Hostel

Avignon, France
89%

I love the location - along the main street between the train station and the papal palace. Access to the main door, the corridors and the rooms are by electronic key card. The dorm beds have individual curtains, which are great for privacy. However the washbasin in my room is clogged, and the shared bathroom on my floor has only one washbasin (which was forever occupied). Because of that, I didn't brush my teeth for 1 night (as I was too tired to wait).

A&O Graz Hauptbahnhof

The location is perfect - close to the main station and there's a tram stop right in front of the hostel. (Those who are lazy to walk from/to the main station can take the tram for 1 stop.) There are frequent trams to the old town and to Eggenberg palace. The main station area has supermarkets, shops and restaurants. The staffs I met were friendly and the room is clean. The rate is really cheap, but it doesn't include bedsheets, breakfast, wifi....

The location is a little far from the main station or old town, but there are tram connections to both. There's a small shopping mall next to the hostel and inside the mall there's a supermarket (very convenient, but it closes at 8pm). The place is clean and the free wifi is fast. If I return to Salzburg I'd stay here again.

Great location (right at Plaza del Carmen, close to the cathedral) with good bus connections. Many shops and eateries in the area. The breakfast room at the top floor offers good views of the plaza. My room is small, but it's clean and comfortable, with free towel and free wifi. It's value for money as my single room here costs as much as a dorm bed in France/Germany.

The Architect Hostel

Seville, Spain

The location is great (very close to Plaza Nueva with tram connection and within walking distance to most attractions). There are a number of restaurants and bars right outside the hostel. However, the neighbourhood is very busy and therefore quite noisy. (Spanish people eats out late and sleeps late, so the streets are noisy until late night.) The hostel itself is clean, and I love the free wifi (fast and stable).

The hostel is in a trendy area. Lots of shops, eateries, bars, nightclubs along the street. However it gets a bit too noisy at night, when the bars and nightclubs swing into action. (There's a bar on the ground floor of the hostel. When I was there, a live band was performing from 10pm until midnight.) Other than the noise, my room is pretty comfortable (with free bedsheets and free wifi). The stay includes a simple breakfast.

Jaeger's Munich

It is a pity that there is only one electrical socket in my room (for 6 people), and the electrical socket is inconveniently located on the 20cm wide wall between the main door and the toilet door (meaning any device recharging may easily get stepped by someone who came into the room or came out of the toilet). The wifi is free but the connection is bad. The only thing I love about the hostel is the location - 1 minute walk to the Hauptbahnhof (main station).

This place feels like a cosy home, as the owner's family live in the house as well. It's a good way to experience life of a typical Korean family. The place is sparkling clean, and there is free towel, free internet and free breakfast. I like the location - quiet residential neighbourhood, close to the airport, walking distance (10 min) to Unseo train station and Lotte Mart. The owner's family and the staff from Kenya are friendly and they made my stay very comfortable.

Samseonghyeol Shrine (historical site) and City Hall district (restaurants and nightlife) are within walking distance.

This is a nice place with friendly people and relaxed atmosphere. My room has no air-con, but I find the 2 wall fans sufficient. Room is generally clean but outdoor areas may have plant debris after a rain or strong winds. The hostel is in a quiet neighbourhood with no shops nearby. The shopping street is a 10-15 min walk and the beach another 5 min. The highway (Ngurah Rai Bypass) is less than a min away, so I could easily go to Denpasar, Tanah Lot, Uluwatu, etc with a rented motorbike.

The hostel is conveniently between Main Road and White Beach. The path from Main Road to the hostel is opposite Balabag Elementary School. D-Mall is just 5 min walk away. The hostel is a good place to meet fellow travellers, as there's a common area where guests can mingle & the dorm consists of single beds (unlike other hostels with double-decker beds). The hostel is environmentally friendly - natural building materials, no air-con (there are fans) and no hot water (fine in hot weather)

Lovely place with a great location (close to Bath Spa train station and most major attractions). Lovely breakfast too in a beautifully decorated dining room. The host is helpful and polite, and the room is clean and comfortable. Other than the intermittent wifi and the lack of a lift (luckily the host offered to carry our luggage 2 floors up), I must say that this guest house is very pleasant and is highly recommended.

Belgravia Rooms

After reading previous reviews, I expected a tiny room, but the staff gave us a free upgrade from twin room to 6-bed room, which was okay for 2 of us. (But I could imagine the room being very cramped when all 6 beds are occupied.) Location is great & room is clean, but I would not recommend heavy / buiky luggages as there is no lift, stairs are narrow, and the room hardly has space to open a suitcase. I couldn't access wifi in my room. Luckily Victoria Coach Station has free wifi.

Not so good: Only 2 toilets for the whole floor (have to queue in the morning), insufficient power outlets in room (and the sockets are loose... better bring an extension cord with a light 2-pin plug), floor not regularly cleaned

Good location (close to Chulia Street with bus stop, 7-eleven and lots of eateries). Appreciate the free towel and the individual cubicles with curtains (good privacy). However the free wifi was very slow (and sometimes not working), and being a party hostel, loud music is a major concern for early sleepers (Luckily I was tired enough to fall asleep even with the loud music) If you want to use the locker, remember to bring your own lock.

If you are looking for peace and quiet, then this place is for you... It's in a quiet seaside Malay village between the airport and Langkawi cable car. However you'll need your own transport (car, motorbike, taxi) to get here. The staff is friendly, but is pretty slow (Be prepared for multiple waits) On my departure I just left the key in the room & left coz I didn't wanna wait. (Luckily I paid everything on 1st day). If your room has no air-con, better bring mosquito repellent...

The hotel is cosy and comfortable. Location is not bad, with buses stopping outside and metro stations a 10-min walk away. Free breakfast is simple but good enough. (If still hungry, there's a grocer opposite.) The downside of the hotel is a lack of ramps and elevators. Not good if carrying heavy luggage.

I like the location - near Ningbo intercity-bus South Station (5-10min walk) and Tianyi Square (10-15min walk). It's in a quiet neighbourhood, so the hostel is quiet most of the time (but it can be noisy sometimes because of the creaking wooden floors). There are a couple of good eateries near the bus South Station. Note: Ningbo train station (opposite intercity-bus South Station) is closed for renovation and all train services are now at Ningbo East train station (You need to take a bus).
