I normally stay here the night before an early flight or the like and feel that the hostel offers a good balance of facilities and location. Ask at the front desk for transport options to the airport/ferry if required as they are quite well connected throughout the 24 hour day. The breakfast is satisfactory and the staff have typically been friendly and understanding. However, if possible ask in advance for a quiet dark room should you value your rest, although this is usually not an issue here.

The hostel is well located for easy access to most of central Amsterdam. The 10 bed dorm was probably the most private one Ive experienced due to the dividers between the beds, along with the lockers placed outside of the room meant sleep was more likely. The hostel seemed well run and the staff were friendly and engaging. Also, the included breakfast was filling.

A well located and clean hostel that offers a unique dorm experience with two separate kitchens, social areas and bathroom facs on atleast two floors (the floors we saw). We had a good sleep there and were in the middle of the old city upon leaving the front door. The only thing is the stairs which might be a tough going for those with larger bags, etc. All in all we wished wed stayed here for all our nights in Tallinn.
A totally unique place and just like staying in someones home, the hostel was a welcoming, friendly place to rest and/or meet people. All the hostel was clean, the beds were very comfortable, the rooms were quite thanks to the solid doors and the showers were warm and strong. Id stay here again should I pass Tartu in the future.
More than was expected, the place was clean and concise, close to the beech (you could see it and the ferries coming and going) and a short walk to Calais city center. A well cared for place and would stay here again. The breakfast is the largest and most relaxed ive had in a hostel and there is parking. Perfect for the 5 minutes to the ferry terminal the following morning.
The staff were friendly and there was plenty of parking. The place was fairly quite and was ok as rest stop for a night.
A good location and with plenty of life. I would stay there again should I be in Bruges.
Interesting hostel in a good location, has all youd need for a short trip away or for those passing through.
I came back here and recommended it to others, theres a sizable patio for meeting a eating, the kitchen is a good size and the staff have always been cool. There is also a policy of trying to allow people to get sleep by restricting noise levels. Also a good spot for meeting people as the layout of the place allows for this. Theres a late shop on the street and a kind of minimarket for food and a large open market at the end of the street. I will stay here again in the future if theres room and if I come back to BCN.
Nice place, but the room colours should carry a public health warning.
Its got to be one of the best Ive stayed in. The staff and the atmosphere was amazing, I would live there if theyd take me. Thanks guys!
The hostel was more of a hotel and with great views of the mountain. The rooms and the entire hostel was right out of your imagination of what morroco might be. The best bit was finding it up some narrow walkways. It is however abit difficult to find as the walkways are behind a Mosque and not so well sign-posted. I do recommend this place and of course the breakfast:)
I stayed here before and choose to stay on another night. Friendly and with good beds. No breaky, but with La Place around the corner and plenty of local places to eat its no problem.
Very friendly and inviting, welcomed with conversation. Nice and relaxed place to stay at and very close to La Place down a small cul de sac to the right of the mentioned street in the directions.
One of the best hostels Ive stayed in. The staff were excellent, helpful and very approachable. The room and facilities were clean and tidy, with plenty of showers available. The location is right off La Ramblas and yet far enough not to have too much noise. But as always, its a hostel so bring very good ear plugs, not the cheap ones. The price of a good nights sleep is as they say priceless.
An average place, but ok for a night, its best to try further in to the center if your going to hang out for longer.
Any room between the communal area and the showers will be noisy. Always bring very good ear plugs because for me this is very noisy. It was suppose to be quite between 11pm and 6.30am, but it was miles away from being quite. i got 30 minutes between 3 and 4am and gave up trying at 5am and had a shower, only to collapse on the bed for little over an hour. If your someone doing a long journey and are in need for good sleep, ask for a room in a quite place. The location is good and the torillas at the cafe just up the street on the left in the small square is very good.
PROS Close to many attractions such as parks, buildings of interest like the royal palace and the city center. The location is excellent and close to the Opera metro line. The staff were helpful and polite, but I did notice that they seem to hand out old records of peoples passport numbers and names to anyone who needed a scrap of paper to write on.....I thought this was strange. The beds were comfortable and the street was not noisy. The hostel is also located very close to and ontop of some nice looking restaurants..no noise was heard from these. I did meet some really nice people....as you do in such places if your interested. CONS The hostel was noisy at night as I was in a room between the entrance and the showers. People come back late the with the thin walls could be heard easily....so bring very good ear plugs as these are a must when using any hostel. The worst night granted me only 2 hours sleep. The lockers need your own lock but these are easily hired for about 1 euro deposit and 1 euro payment. On two occassions I was able to walk strength off the street during the day time with a friend from Madrid (on one occasion) and in to the hostel to my bed without needing to ask permission or use keys, as the rooms are not locked..........I thought this was a lack of security for peoples stuff. SUMMARY Its well located between the touristic bit and the bit the locales call home, so for the money you have a good hostel. Its not the best hostel and for those who are tried from a hard day backpacking or on a RTW trip as it was at the time a little noisy.......so get a bed in a room farther in to the hostel away from the communal areas.
Its on a boat and positioned right between the east and west bits of berlin. Ideally located to visit the wall and has an ok character of its own. You will have to bring your own sleeping bag and watch out if you dont like mosquitoes as it is on a river. I liked the idea of staying on a boat, worth atleast one night.
A place for young of mind or of body to chill in a city known for chillin.
A good place to stay if your in Venice and dont want to pay too much or be in a noisy place. Close to all yoou need to close to in Venice...... such as Venice itself, although rather difficult to find without help as even a local we asked got confused due to the street not being exactly one street. But its got good beds and patio for breaky, enjoy!
I got a cheap room there last minute and found it was fine. Its a hotel rather than a hostel and so you probably wont meet too many people, but its ok for checking out Cordoba.
