Breakfast definitely needs to be improved and preferably even moved out of that "basement", other than that the hostel was just ok for our 2 nights in Zagreb and the best thing about it was the location...

Staff were extremely nice and helpful, very good location with a short walking distance to all interesting parts of town, room was fine but the big window had no curtains when we came in, however they had it fixed for us immediately...I recommend Zeppelin hostel for your stay in Ljubljana...

AVAIL Hostel, Budapest, Hungary

29th Jun 2011

It felt more at home than in a hostel, Sandor is exceptionally helpful and nice, he upgraded me from the single room with shared bathroom to the ensuite and that really made a lot of difference as the room was quite small and it wasn't comfortable to go up and down the narrow stairs to go to the bathroom, I believe cleanliness can improve and perhaps a little breakfast can be a nice touch...

This isn't really a hostel, it's more of an old worn out hotel, the room is good for what I paid and had a nice view on the old city, Hany from the staff was really nice and helpful, the others not as much, Katarina from the reception didn't even want to give me tips on the city and just told me to go to the tourist information office...the best thing about that hotel was their breakfast...

The Backpack Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa

21st May 2011

The room was clean and nice, location is good and the character of the hostel is also nice, some of the staff were friendly and helpful and some were not, we struggled with the shower during our whole stay, it was either too cold or too hot and not possible to adjust...for the price we're paying we expect at least a little breakfast to be included.

Thanks for your review and letting us know about the shower. Please in future for wherever you stay let the hostel staff know if something is not right and maybe it can be sorted out at the time. It would make a more memorable experience for you and showers that are just right! Kind regards The Backpack Team

The room is impressively clean, the beds were really nice and the room has a balcony with a nice view despite the cement block that should be replaced by wooden or steel bars as it blocks most of the view..Sun was quite nice and helpful but the other guys at the reception speak very limited english, the breakfast isn\'t included and u have to pay 150 Baht for it, which is quite expensive by Thailand standards, location is ok but u have to walk 10-15 min to reach the beach..

Dear Gafar and June , Thanks for you comment. Therefore I can improve my staff's english and other things. Unluckily that you stayed just a few days. Next time you can come back and e-mail me in advance. Sincerely yorus , Sun

This is a great hostel, I\'ve been to many hostels before but this is the first time I feel I was a friend of the family visiting rather than a normal guest in a hostel :) room was okay, Robert and all the others are extremely nice and helpful..I highly recommend this hostel and would definitely stay there again if in Yogyakarta..the only drawback was the location but taxis are cheap and easy to find..

The room was clean and nice, we didn\'t get breakfast as mentioned in the website, they said they serve breakfast in the dorms building only (dorms & privates are in 2 different buildings) and the bathroom definitely needs to be cleaned more frequently as it was quite dirty, they also close the common room after midnight which i didn\'t like at all. Overall it was an OK stay for what we paid.

Pickup from airport and room was ok but the first night they put us in a double bed w/ shared bathroom despite booking a twin bed ensuite, after 2 nights the power was cut coz they didn't pay d bill and they moved us to another hostel.Try not to deal with their travel agency, they deceived us and put us on a bus full of locals that took 16 hours to go to Agra and return.
