Everything fine, no complaints! Clean room, quiet and comfy, easy-going staff. Hotel is just outside city centre (i.e. canals), about 15-20 minutes (via tram) from the central station. Once settled in, you're a very easily walkable distance to almost everywhere you'd want to go in Amsterdam: museums (Museumplein), Vondelpark, the city centre, etc.. Plenty of less touristy shops and restaurants in the neighbourhood (if you walk away from Leidseplein!). Would stay again.

No real complaints. Central location, clean, staff always around. I didn't opt for breakfast, but I seldom do at hostels as it's often cheaper to scrounge for your self. It was June and hot outside, and the room at night was luckily fairly cool (on the back shaded side anyway), but I can imagine a fan being sometimes necessary. You can't open the window more than a crack, so you're not going to get much fresh air -- fine if you don't plan on spending too much time in the room. ;)

Thanks for your feedback! Until now it`s been a fairly hot summer, that`s true. But luckily, as you say, it cools down at night. Why not check out our other hotels, like Vienna and London, when travelling next time? Have a great day! Your MEININGER Team

Hostal Facundo, Tarifa, Spain

17th Sep 2013

Located midway between the bus "station" and old town. Maybe they had problems before as many little rules are posted everywhere. OK, but it still felt a bit unwelcoming. Bathroom always smelled odd (no flushing the toilet paper...), and never any soap. There is a kitchen and TV room, but lights out at 11pm. Key deposit is a bit steep (20€). Early check-out and no luggage room means, if taking a bus, you'll likely wait for hours WITH all your bags. I wouldn't stay here long, but OK for 1 night.

Took longer to find than directions imply! Central market and beach nearby. The few hostels in town all seem overpriced (no exception here). Staff were friendly and helpful when asked, yet still seemed disinterested. Full kitchen and the common room were great. There are lockers in the room, but STILL: the front door always right open + no locks on room doors! So ground floor anyone can walk right in and enter your room + staff weren't always at the desk. Why not just have keys or a buzz-in??

Pension Hostal Ronda Sol, Ronda, Spain

11th Sep 2013

As the name suggests, this is more of a small, simple hotel than a hostel. But the value is worth it. Ronda is small, so the location is perfect, not too far from anything. We only stayed one night, so no complaints about the room, don't expect anything too fancy (as cheap students, we didn't!). Only real complaint was that the shower was pretty weak and didn't feel too clean. But the owners are nice enough, and the breakfast (though simple) was pretty good. I would stay here again!

Here you feel relaxed and welcome right away. The design of the place is funky and fresh, just beneath the Alhambra. Plenty of bars, tapas and whatever you want just down the hill. The rooftop terrace has amazing views! Juan is great, friendly and very helpful. A/C in room, though we didn't need it (in Sept). Only tiny issue: toilet door-lock was broke (don't ppl knock??), breakfast is a bit simple (but there are plenty of cafes nearby anyhow!). Best hostel I stayed in in Spain. 100% recommend.

A nice family-run hostel in an old building with a small inner courtyard. Located just northeast of the city centre, with plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and tapas within walking distance. Great, real breakfast is included! I would definitely stay here again. There is a small kitchen area on the first floor, though I can't recall if there was a stove (I think not), but you can still prepare simple things. It could get hot in summer (duh), but wasn't a problem in Sept, but there are fans.

Good location, near to where you want to be, but still a little removed from too much noise. Hostel is big, bright, open and clean. It was a quiet time of year when I was there, and so was the hostel, but I'm not complaining about that! Would definitely stay here again. The staff were also very kind and helpful.
