I cancelled the reservation more than 2 days prior to arrival in accordance with its terms and conditions as stated on the HW website, thereby forfeiting my deposit . It then went on to charge me for the whole booking and refused to properly engage with me when I complained. I have wrongly been charged by the hostel and would strongly recommend people to avoid this place. I have added approx 30 reviews on HW, mostly positive, and have never been treated so badly by any other HW establishment

Flushing YMCA, New York, USA

The conduct of this YMCA was shocking. I booked months in advance. On arrival I was told that I was to be shunted to Manhattan due to an over booking, and left with the inpression that this was my fault! No aplology, let alone offer to pay for a taxi to take me to Manhattan. It took 30 minutes to insist on it honouring my booking for them to relent. Generally very poor bathroom facilities, Discovering a cockroach on my final morning capped it all. Never again.

I cannot speak too highly about this place, largely thanks to the helpfulness of its owners Dave and Valentina. Apparantly I have added around 30 reviews, mainly positive, but few stick in the memory like teh Olive Tree. Yes, the dorm is rather cramped but this is the sacrifice for stopping in the old town.

More appropriately described as Hostel Vending Machine or Hostel Utterly Forgetable. Left with impression that the owner had read the seminal textbook on maximising profits in a hostel and applied it with s zeal. Nothing bad, just utterly forgettable. If there was a vending machine that would bypass any huuman interaction, this place would have one. Wifi codes that expire every 6 hours is bizarre; pizza not bad. "Downtown" is accurate. Whether you want to be next to Termini is debatable.

As easy...as it sounds, Assisi, Italy

28th Mar 2013

The property is 4km away from Assisi which sounded like a problem but is just 2 minutes walk from the train station and from the bus stop that goes to the town every 30 minutes until 11pm. In short better than being in the tourist trap that is Assisi. Owner very helpful. An excellent choice. No doubt I Paid a premium for visiting at Easter

I have stayed in a large nmber of hostels, mainly in Spain, and have awarded high maks to many of them. The number that stick in the mind is minimal. This is one such place, set in an old property in the middle of town, with easy access for te bus ststaon. Daniel and his wife could not have been more helpful and considerate. Go to Perugia, I hope to return some day.

Many good things about this place - location, helpful managers in particular - but some of the reviews are unwarranted. By no means a bad option, just avoid the big dorm which crams too many people into a small room with minimal ventilation

I never understand why "fun" should be a criteria esp on a weekend city break when all that is required is somewhere to crash! Anyway, this place was very good value in the heart of Malaga. Clearly I was lucky in having a room at the back of the building as there was street noise. The room was perfectly adequate and the adjoining bathroom spotless. Just a minor point - the keys and locks were very awkward to use and in the unlikely event of a fire, evacuating the place would take ages. All in all a very good choice
