You now have to pay the first night on your credit card which caused some issues regarding payment which the staff were really nice about correcting. I have had problems here previously; it has to be said that the staff have really improved in their manner and professionalism. The hostel has an excellent bar and nice rooms (4 share ensuite). It is a big hostel though, so if you want to meet people you will need to go to the bar and say "hi".
A new hostel on the site of an old one. The facilities have been completely renovated and it is new and shiny. The rooms are nice and the hostel has a kitchen which is a nice treat. It did not really have a social vibe to it as a hostel though. Guests kept to themselves. Staff were helpful and the location is excellent.
A very well located hostel with really nice staff. We arrived at 7am on a sleeper train and they let us have a drink etc before storing our luggage. The hostel is near the famous clock and the rooms are spacious. The guests in our room were friendly, but other guests seemed a bit unsociable. A recommended hostel especially if you are with friends.
An excellent hostel with friendly staff and a very welcoming atmosphere amongst the other backpackers. This is a party hostel, but even if you don't do the pub crawl you will have fun and meet great people here. The rooms are nice, the hostel has nice noise restrictions for quieter quests too AND FREE DINNER!!! My only critique is that they could do with another bathroom or two.
A reasonable hostel with good bar deals for guests. Be warned this hostel is above a bar, and it does not have a common room, so is not one for meeting travellers. As a place to stay with a friend it is quiet decent, apart form the annoying Irish music at breakfast.
This is a fun hostel, there are lots of cool people, drinking and the staff are nice. The kitchen is acceptable, the common areas are a nice size, not too big or small. The constant music outside did wear on me a bit though. I recommend this hostel for travellers who want to meet people and have fun. Th rooms are nice and quiet.
More of a hotel with dorms than a hostel. There is no real hostel vibe. The kitchen is lacking plates. The guy on reception (Diego i think) is really cool and friendly. This place is right by the beach, so fo that it is great, but you wont meet people much here.
A delight to stay here after the one in Philly. Jude was really cool, and when AJ turned up it got even better. The rooms are good and the people hang out and making friends is easy. It could do with an extra bathroom on floor 2, but otherwise ths place was great. It is 10 minutes walk from Union station and a great place to explore DC and have a good time. Thanks for a great time.
A fantastic hostel. One of the best i have ever been to. The staff are very friendly, i hung out with them and other backpackers. The pub crawl was a blast, the place is VERY clean, great common area. I would highly recommend this hostel. There is a sister hostel in Washington DC too if the readers need one. Seriously a great place, thank you for being like a home in Philly to this traveller.
No atmosphere. The walls in the rooms do not reach the ceiling so if your neighbour turns on a light, snores or talks late at night you get woken up. The dorms are noisy due to this as every time somebody goes down the corridor you can hear it.
A nice little hostel in the middle of the Reaperbahn. The area isn't as dodgy as it claims, this hostel is on the main road and is well located. There isn't much of a backpacker atmosphere, but if you are with friends it will serve nicely. Breakfast is VERY expensive though.
I was charged to my credit card for the first night as we were late, despite having emailed ahead to say I would be late due to flight delays. This was inconvenient and incurred me charges on my card for overseas transactions, and was despite a member of staff emailing me earlier that day to confirm that they had read my email and knew I was definitely coming. This kind of sloppy service by the staff shows a lack of communication and professionalism. I won't be coming back to this hostel.

fantastic staff especially the bar maid. easy to find, but not really a 'meeting people' hostel.
great staff, a really cool place. Duvets were a bit thin though even with the radiator it was cold at night.
An average hostel, the bar downstairs means you need ear plugs on the first floor and the lack of a kitchen hurts the atmosphere a bit if you don't fancy the bar. Otherwise good enough.
Directions are not clear enough, but when we got there i really liked it. Be warned the rooms are tiny, but the beds comfy and the manager was cool.

Worst kitchen ever! 2 pans, 0 plates and the microwave doesn't work. The room was good and the staff friendly, but if you want to cook for yourself its near enough impossible
A small hostel with fair facilities. It is expensive, but thats Zurich. The owner is friendly and the free beer is always welcome
Staff were nice, its a bit of a hike from the station and the i got eaten by Bed Bugs in my bunk. The hostel has good character, but really spotty wifi connections.
A suitable hostel, with good facilities but no atmosphere.
Excellent positioned hostel, a bit expensive though. Staff are really helpfull. The 6 share room, was a bit cramped though, it was too many people for the size of the actuall room.
Directions given via booking email were TERRIBLE! No interaction with people, and the kitchen was missing some major basics! Then although i have been refunded, i was charged for not turning up, ORGANISATION!! Its a university, not exactly inspiring stuff.
met some cool people here, could do with an extra pc thought for the internet, like their hostel in Berlin
Had a really good time in a fun, chilled hostel, where the people are friendly and its not too big, unlike many others in Berlin
