4th Oct 2014

The B&B is housed in an old yet elegant French apartment with a lot of charm and character. 5 minutes walk from the SNCF train station. Everything is so clean. I stayed in a single room. It was pretty basic with a small single bed. Walls are thin. At night, it could be noisy due to traffic. Breakfast is great with bread, coffee, juice, etc. Wifi works perfectly. I would recommend.

Central location. The room I stayed had a strange triangular shape. It was small, dark and smelt weird. Equipped with AC and TV. Bed was big. Bathroom was not en suite. It is not possible to store luggage after checking out, even for a couple of hours.

Tiny room with 6 beds. Not very clean. No common room except the small kitchen. Internet does not work in room. The least value for money hostel I have ever stayed. Fortunately I only had to stay 2 nights. A 3rd night would be unbearable.

I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom. It was quite spacious, with two single beds and a sink. The mattress was fine, but the pillows were not proper pillows which gave me a hard time sleeping. The room was facing the bar of another hostel which could be noisy at night. The location of the hostel is perfect, but the instructions on this website is a bit misleading. The staff were very nice. Breakfast was good too. Highly recommended!

The hostel is housed in a nice mansion with a little courtyard. I stayed in a 6-bed male dorm with 3 big windows, making the room very airy. The wifi was a bit slow when many people were using it at the same time. But overall the speed was acceptable. The location is perfect. Close to both the old town and the train station. I'd recommend this hostel.

I stayed in a single room for four nights. The room was spacious with an en-suite bathroom. There were two single beds in it, so I guess it can sleep two. The location is excellent. Very close to the Westbanhof. If you need to catch a train from there, it is super convenient. The historical center is only a few stops away by metro. The staff were fine. Not particularly warm, but professional. The hallway smelt a bit, but not much of a problem. Overall, it was a nice stay. Thank you!

The location is excellent. It is only a few steps away from the metro station Tirso de Molina. You can walk to Plaza Mayor or Mercado San Miguel. I stayed in a four-bed room with en-suite bathroom. It was very spacious. Instead of bunk beds, it came with normal single beds. I really liked it. However, the staff was not helpful. They did not show any enthusiasm about their work. When I arrived at the reception, the wifi did not work and nobody tried to solve the problem. In the following days, the wifi did w

This is undoubtedly one of the best hostels I've ever stayed. It is clean, quiet and spacious! I booked a bed in a 6-bed mixed dorm. The dorm itself is huge, so is the locker. Every bed has its own curtain which makes it feel like a small room in itself. The shower, wifi...ect worked like a charm. There are some nice retaurants and markets just outside of the hostel. Enrico was so warm-hearted and explained all the nice things to see in Berlin upon my arrival. All in all, I highly recommend it!

The hostel is located in the heart of the old town, which makes it a perfect base to explore Stockholm. Rooms are clean and bright. Staff are friendly and helpful. The wifi works great. There is no kitchen or breakfast. But the cafe downstairs is very good albeit a bit expensive. Overall I think this is a very nice hostel. Highly recommended!!!

I stayed in the 10 bed room and it was quite spacious. Sheets were very clean. Everybody got clean towels. Living room is really cosy. Breakfast is simple. The Price (25 euros a bed) was a bit high compared with other hostels in Andalucia. Maybe because it was a Friday. Overall it is pretty good.

Very central location. A few steps from Plaza Nueva. All the historic monuments are within walking distance. Staff are really helpful and nice. There is no common room but the kitchen upstairs can serve as a meeting room. There is a terrace outside of the kitchen too. Things are pretty clean and shower is great. Some improvement works were ongoing when I stayed there. Sometimes we had to wait long, but I totally understand. All in all, I am very happy with my stay and highly recommend it!!

The hostel is very close to Gare du Nord which is both a good and a bad thing. It is close to metro and train, but the neighbourhood is not that nice actually. I stayed in a 4 bed room with an en suite bathroom which is very nice. The room is very very small but works quite fine. If the window is not closed, it can be very noisy at night. Wifi is available, but they keep changing the password which is kind of annoying. Overall not bad.

Hostel Krumlov House, Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic
7.7
14th May 2013

I booked a double private room, but got a twin bed room. Since i was solo, it made a big difference. If you decide to stay in this hostel, you'd better stay in the dorm. by the way, Krumlov is way tooooo touristy and the whole old town is now just restaurants, souvenir shops and hotels. It looks beautiful from the top, but becomes boring when you are walking in it. I stayed for 2 nights and it was kind of too long because there was not much to see really.

View Property Reply

Hi there, You booked a private room which is much more expensive than a dorm, obviously. Both the double private and the double twin are the same price, except that the double you were given has an added kitchenette. The town is touristy, no question. But we give you lots of tips on hidden gems and active pursuits (horseback riding, hiking, biking, etc) which will make you feel like a local. "Boring is as boring does." Good luck on the rest of your travels.

A small and homey hostel in an old building full of character. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room is spacious with big lockers. The mattress is a bit sinking in the middle though. The bathrooms can be crowded in the morning, but it is not a major problem. Tea and coffee are available 24 hours a day which is very nice. I enjoyed my stay there.

The hostel is centrally located. 10 minutes walk from the central station and right next door to the red light district. Breakfast is quite nice. Staff are super. The is a strong sense of community with various group activities, including a walking tour. From the perspective of facilities, the hostel is really basic though. I stayed in room No.5 and my bed was literally in the hallway. Everybody in the inner part needed to pass by my bed. It felt very strange. The bathroom is not clean.

The hostel is well located. Sagrada Familia, Passatge de Gracia and the Gothic area are all within walking distance. La Rambla is a bit far, but also manageable on foot. At such incredible price, it offers 24-hour free breakfast (juice, bread, cereal, etc.) and fast wifi connection, which is extremely generous! Overall excellent value for money! There is not much interaction between travelers though and the hostel may want to do more to encourage that.

one of the best hostels i've ever stayed in. perfect location. just five minutes walk from Nanjing Rd. and ten minutes away from the Bund. i booked a double room but got free upgrade to a deluxe with balcony. the room is huge for a hostel! if there is anything i can complain about, it is the wifi which is kinda slow and unstable. but other than that, this hostel is simply amazing! i will definitely stay here again if i get to revisit Shanghai.

i booked this hostel (more like a hotel really, like many others said) because i saw a lot of nice comments here. i would say this is a nice hostel, but the first night i arrived, because of overbooking, i was transferred to his brother's place which is located in a very remote area and the room was far less agreeable, but i was charged the same price. the next morning, i was literally kicked out of my room but nobody wanted to send me to San Giorgio. so i wasted the whole morning waiting...
