Easy to get to from the Havatas bus at Taksim Square. Located off the main street so night noise is not an issue. Air con in rooms (four-dorm) a big plus. Room I stayed in was big and airy with a locker for each person. I could get the free wifi in the room, others couldn't, but it was in the reception area. Staff very helpful. Bathroom/shower small but manageable.

Vila 11

Bucharest, Romania

The big plus is that this place is close to transport links - 200m or so from the main trian station and about 1km from one of the places to catch the bus to the airport. It sisn't that close to the central "Old Town." Breakfast was inlcuded, some very doughly pikelets and cold coffee. My room wasn't lockaable, although there was someone on duty most of the time. It has wifi and one bathroom. The rooms are filled with family photos and memorabilia. It was quiet at night.

Thanks for your travellers review. We are not in the city centre but we are in walking distance of the centre. I am 50years old and I walk it regularly. There is alternatively a series of buses or the subway. This is our home and no one should ever be expected to be served cold anything! If you found things on the table too cold, please ask for them to be made fresh. Breakfast is served from 9 to 11and when there are fewer guests late arrivals may find things cooled off. Sorry.

Easy to get to, once you chqnge some money. The place is a student who rents the room for extra money, so it has all the things you want. He is helpful and it is clise to transport. When you arrive on bus 32, the buildings ar3 he hug3 blocks on the hill, about100m.

A large hostel, easy to get to and to find. The roomsare spacious. Not overcrowded with beds like many places are. The staff on the front desk were very helpful and knowledgeable. The ensuite bathrooms were shared with another room (it is/was a university student accommodation in the winter). The kitchen had a pretty basic set of pots and pans. When I visited the metro system was undergoing major work, so the central underground stations were closed, but free buses ran aling the same route.

Doma Hostel

Riga, Latvia
57%

"Rooms" are just a large room partitioned by Japanese style dividers. No security (other than front door key) and little privacy. The Hostel faces a square which has a band stand so on weekends there will be loud music until 11pm. One toilet and two bathrooms (only showers) for all those people, though these were kept clean. People (staff) sleeping in the lounge room. No common area. Not worthy on a Hostel International standard as claimed.

Dear Keith, You are talking about the 12-bed dorm room, which is divided by these Japanese style dividers just for our guests' comfort. If you book a dorm room, you have to count with less private space. Therefore we offer our guests lockers and luggage storage at the reception. We also have a TV-lounge (common area) for people to relax and watch TV. In Latvia the legislation allows loud noise till 11pm, so we cannot do anything in regards with that.

A great place to chill out. Hostess helpful. On the down side, the ensuite in my room didn't work. No curtains - the sun comes up early (6am) now! No kitchen facilities, and limited eating places in town. Nice views and good walks around the area. I'd stay there again.


Bulgaru Hostel

Kazan, Russia
73%

The hostel manager is helpful and knowledgeable. Visa registration can be arranged. The hostel is located on many bus routes. Getting in/out of the centre isn\'t a problem. The bathroom and dorm rooms are clean, sunny and bright. Free internet. Laundry can be done. However, it is an apartment with a family. So if your standard for being clean is like a hospital or hotel, it isn\'t for you.

In a quiet part of town, but close to transport links and the Valley. The Valley can be dodgy at night. It has a good kitchen, but only one shared toilet and shower.


Surfers Paradise YHA @ Mainbeach

Main Beach, Australia
67%

It's about 3km from the centre, but on a bus route. The showers and toilets are clean enough, but the kitchens are left a mess after people finish cooking evening meals. There are fans in the rooms, but most people find it hot at night. The long verandah beside the bedrooms means it is often noisy at night and in the morning as people walk up an down on the hard floorboards.

Good place for a cheap stay. Well located to trains and shopping (Midosuji line/Tennoji). Be aware the area has a few homeless people, but they are harmless.

the toilet was absolutley disgusting. hadn't been cleaned in months. I've seen cleanerpublic toilets in India! Staff were ahrdly ever around. The place and surrounding areas have few backpacker facilites (eg internet, laundy). Located on 2nd floor of hotel so above a bar, very noisy on weekends. Only redeeming feature is it is across the road from Albert Park beach.
