I've stayed in this hostel for a number of years and, except for the lack of security lockers in each room, it was fine. The last two times I stayed there the internet was pretty much not working the whole 4 days I was there. It seems like every guest was complaining about this problem, but the front desk was not able to fix the problem and management was unable or unwilling to fix it as well. This hostel use to have decent internet in past years but has gone downhill rapidly in the present.
Clean hostel in neat building. Helpful front desk staff. I was there for seven days and the internet was working at most 30% of the time. No guest kitchen or even a microwave. Forget about making tea or coffee...except for at breakfast time. No laundry to wash clothes. Hostel is close to the city center and train and bus center.
Nice hostel a block from the central train station. Thanks
Nice stay in these student housing during the summer break. Nice rooms, clean toilets and showers, large kitchens...thanks
Nice place to stay on a budget. Secure rooms, clean kitchen area and good buses back and forth to the city center. Would stay again....thanks
Decent hostel in a safe working class neighborhood . Pretty much a house that has been converted to a hostel, and for the only hostel in Sheffield, they are doing a pretty good job. The street on the directions is not well marked but if you get off the bus/tram at tescos it will be on the right side if your facing tescos...after that I just asked a few people and sort of found my way there. Once there it's Nice little hostel.
Hostel is pretty new and clean. Location is both good and bad....good because it's right in the city center close to all the nightlife...but bad because every night the club next to it plays disco music throughout the night. If your young and into partying the night away it's a good value for the money. If your older or a family with children then it might be difficult to get a decent night sleep because of the noise.
This is more of a young person party hostel. If your older or a family I would not recommend it. If your up for drinking games and going out to party, this might be a good value. Free towels is a nice touch. I'm of middle age so I will find a different place to stay next time I'm in Glasgow. Staff seems helpful
This is a hostel run by one manager with a nice energy about her. She keep the hostel clean and well organized. The hostel is a bit of a walk from the city center...but a nice walk for the most part along the river...but at night if your walk it would be a bit difficult to find. I stayed in what they call the hobbit, which is a bit cramped but okay for 3 or less people. The biggest problem with the hobbit is that it's set up for 5 beds but way to small if 5 people were booked into it.
Nice hostel close to everything. Great staff, clean rooms and toilets, fast internet connection. Thanks
Nice hostel, close to everything, with great staff
Nice hostel close to train, coach and tube station. Well run and in a nice area
Great little hostel that I've stayed at before and will stay at in the future, if I'm in the need of affordable quality accommodations in Cardiff. Thanks
Nice hostel and helpful staff....would stay here again. In fact I have already booked a bed in this place for my return to dublin.
This is the third time I've stayed at this guesthouse and plan to return next year. Nice size room with good view. Both hot and warm working shower. The manager speaks good english. Food is both good and honestly priced. The guesthouse is just a few blocks from both the old market and the nightmarket.
Nice guest house for the money! This guest house has a great staff and is centrally located. The rooms are a bit old but comfortable and a great value for the money. Shower is just room one temperature which is common in budget guesthouses in cambodia internet was good and nice selection for eating on menu...even vegetarian. Would stay again.....thanks
nice hostel close to chinatown and near two rapid transit connections. Free internet,and hot showers....would stay again if my first choice was booked up....thanks
Great staff and good value for your money makes this hostel one worth coming back to again...thanks
basic hostel right near the cross country bus pickup and so very convenient....could use lockers for added security in the rooms. Would use again for ease of transport.
Nice hostel close enough to all the sites. Free wifi and decent breakfast. Would stay here again...thanks
Second time I stayed here beside the one toilet not working properly and a broken door knob to the shower...everything was fine. I stayed in another area of these accommodations last time so these problem were probably a isolated problem to this section. Would stay here again, if in the area....thanks
Clean new hostel that is close enough to walk from to get to central london (after dropping off you luggage in your room). Decent breakfast but no kitchen and they charge for hot water (30p). So this will not be my first choice for a budget accommodation next time I stay in london.
Still holds it's place as the best budget accommodations, for individuals, families, or groups, in Cardiff! Great staff, secure, clean, fantastic location, free wifi and wonderful breakfast!!!
Honest advertising with a title of "rock & bowl" which pretty much sums it up. Very large common area which is nice. Bowling alley on the bottom floor during the day and what must be ,by the sounds coming from there, a rock night club during the night. Best for the young adults who enjoy partying into the late night. Not a place for the non party types who just need a place to sleep at night.
My first choice in hostel in bristol. Clean, secure, great location, nice kitchen...would stay there again. Thanks
Nice hostel close to all the city life and train and bus connection. Free wifi and nice staff. I have stayed here before and will stay again when I need reliable budget accommodations in the Birmingham area...Thanks
Nice accommodations in a off season student uni complex. clean secure rooms and nice cooking space. Once you understand which bus to catch it's easy to get back and forth into the city. I would stay there again when in Leeds...thanks !
My first choice for budget accommodations in Liverpool. Secure, clean, nice kitchen, helpful staff. The shower in the merchants suite is always clogged ,(it backs up even if you take a short shower...and you end up standing in a pool of dirty water), and was never really fixed in the five days I stayed there so avoid that room. Otherwise nice hostel.
Nice well run hostel in york city
nice hostel close to the kingscross train and underground station...would stay again...thanks
Nice Hostel in a great area of town. Nice hot and cold breakfast in the morning. A second meal in the afternoon or evening is a nice touch but I was to busy to know if it was any good or not...but for most backpacker types this extra meal would be a bonus for their budget. Helpful staff and nice rooms...thanks
Nice basic hostel with big common area and nice kitchen with plenty of storage space. As best as I could tell it looked like one man did everything around there. For the most part clean...except the trash can in my room was never emptied in the three days I was there. Would stay there again if I needed budget accommodations in portsmouth..
Nice Hostel over a pub and my first choice in hostel when arriving late or leaving early from paddington. Thanks....great staff!!!
nice hostel located over a pub in the middle of bath. Close to both the train and bus stations. Thanks
Still the best budget accommodations in Cardiff. Great staff, clean rooms and showers, nice common area, great breakfast, and central location close to both the bus and railway station. Always my first choice in hostels when in Cardiff...thanks
Nice hostel located right next to the paddington train and tube station. Making it my first choice for arriving late or leaving early from paddington train station. Free internet connection, clean toilet and nice pub atmosphere downstairs. Full english breakfast is what sets this hostel over a pub apart from the rest of the pack!
Nice youthful backpackers hostel located two blocks from the train and bus stations. Has fast internet and a nice chill backpacker ambiance. Clean bathrooms and showers. Small lockers and locks for your computers and and other personal items. Overall a nice choice for budget accommodations in Oxford..
this hostel seems to be popular with all ages, families, school groups, seniors, backpackers, so can be full at any time of the week. The reason being is the great location next to the railway station, clean rooms and toilets, helpful staff, nice restaurant and kitchen. good security. My first choice in budget accommodations in oxford!
Nice little hostel that is right smack in the middle of nottingham. Secure, clean, nice staff.
Nice safe secure hostel within walking distance of all the major attractions in liverpool
Nice hostel that has been remolded or under new ownership since the last time I stayed there, because they have added so nice little improvements to make it more secure and comfortable the the guest! Close to kings cross station making it great for early departures or late arrivals. Thanks
Nice hostel close to the city center and next door to the major bus/ coach station. Locker rental for extra security. Free wifi and breakfast.
Nice hostel close to the center of town and near bus and train station. Rooms and toilets are clean and in good working order. Shower is on a timer that needs to be activated continuously to have a shower. Overall a nice little hostel.
Nice hostel that is located in a cool area of dublin. Central to most of the night life. This is the second time I have stayed here and would stay again.
Guest house is about a 15min walk from the night market . The room I had was clean but the bathroom mirror was filthy and was never cleaned once in all the three days I stayed there. Good internet in rooms. Basic eggs and bread breakfast. Secure room. So overall a decent place to stay for your money. In the future I would not recommend booking a bus to bangkok through them because the bus the booked me was full of flying bugs and cramped with little spaces....very disappointing.
Nice basic guesthouse run by two educated young ladies. If they don't know the answer one of the other three or four main staff member will. Two short blocks from the main tourist street...so close to everything but still quiet. Basic two eggs and toast or soup with egg breakfast. Hot & cold shower that works well. Good value for your money!
Great guest house in a nice location close to the main tourist location but far enough away for a bit of a rest. Great staff! Clean rooms! Enjoyed my stay....Thanks
I've stay here a number of times through the years. Still has a location that best for early departures to the airport....and that"s why it's my first choice when getting to and from the airport is high priority.
Nice new hostel close to many of the sites in manila, (one block away from a night market with music, food and gifts for sale) . This place has a great staff and a nice community of traveling backpackers willing to share their recent adventures. Great showers, clean toilets, nice location.
nice hostel close to kl sentral for easy access to early morning airport bookings.....stayed there before and will stay there again....thanks

Great night sleep and nice thought that has gone into this hostel in the heart of queenstown. Clean comfortable secure rooms. Free wifi! Nice common area, Great cooking area! One of the best hostels in queenstown....thanks
Nice Hostel with a great view of queenstown. Clean rooms and toilets! Helpful staff. Big well stocked kitchen.
Nice Hostel a little outside of the main london area but still a tube or bus ride close by. Rooms are clean and secure! free wifi and internet! Just toast and tea/coffee for breakfast. Would stay again.
Nice hostel next to saint pauls cathedral and across the bridge from the tate modern. Clean rooms and showers. No kitchen or refrigerators for guest to use. Hot english breakfast for additional 4.95 but it was disappointing because the toast was hard and the pastries were uneatable unless you a pigeon. I passed on the cheese as well due to it looking like it was sitting around all day. Eating out seems to be the best option at this YHA.
Basic hostel that has a bit of a family vibe due to the longer stay people who stay there....they all are pretty much cool people from all over the would. Free wifi but no breakfast. Security lockers and clean toilets.
Nice hostel close to all the main attractions in liverpool. nice clean kitchen with plenty of pots and pans in good condition. Secure rooms with quality lockers to keep your valuables safe and secure. Would stay again....thanks!

Nice hostel close to just about all the sights. large and spacious common area with cool antiques all around. clean secure rooms! Will stay here again.....thanks!
Nice yha in the middle of a park setting that make it something special....but getting there is a bit of a hike from the tube station. Otherwise you basic yha with clean rooms and good security for your valuables. But still charges for breakfast and internet.
My first choice in hostels when staying in Birmingham! Close to the snow hill train station. great staff, clean rooms, nice basic breakfast. Thanks!
This is a wonderful accommodations with plenty of room to unwind after a day of seeing the sites of london. Before you walk in the door, if the sun is shinning, your greeted by the sounds of two love birds and their six or seven youngster offspring! The staff is not as cute as the birds, but the compensate by being friendly and efficient at meeting your needs. Clean secure rooms and hot showers. Cool unique collection of antiques at every turn make this a special experience for their guest.
My first choice for affordable accommodations in Keswick! Clean....secure.....central location.....great staff
- (175 reviews)
basic hostel very close to the Victoria coach & train stations! That being the best reason to stay there. Would stay again....thanks!
Best hostel in oxford despite the current yha tradition of charging for internet and breakfast. Clean rooms and showers, security lockers in every room, well organized staff! Would stay again!
My first choice in hostels in oxford! Clean...secure....central location....excellent staff!
This hostel is part of a group of hostels that raise the bar as to what would be expected from affordable accommodations. Small details like individual curtains for each bed, dedicated lockers for added security, free wifi and computers are just a few of the innovations they were at the forefront with. Also for lovers of classic motorcycles....the eating area showcases one of the finest collections, of classic motorcycles in London! Not to be Missed!
The best hostel I've stayed at in Cardiff, and I've stayed at all of them. This hostel wins hands down, and if there was a Olympic medal for hostels, The Riverhouse Backpackers in Cardiff would be in the running for the gold. The brother and sister welsh owners are raising the bar in what is to be expected in quality affordable accommodations....most of the rest of UK are still playing catch up. Job well done!
Nice hostel right in the center of the city and less than a block from the main bus terminal. Clean rooms, clean bathrooms, nice basic breakfast. Would stay again.
This A very cool guesthouse/hostel and I've stayed in many places in chiang mai. The place is built like a tradition classic Thailand house with rich teak wood framing and nice ventilation. I you want to experience what it's like to live in a traditional timber frame thai accommodation at a affordable price this place is a must stay! I wish I had a place like this back in the states. Modern toilet, hot showers...or cool shower when it's gets to 100 degrees. great price! Great Experience!
Cool Hostel with private beds even in the dorm rooms. Clean , secure, great staff! Only two problems cold toast because they have a person toast the bread for you and it ends up sitting on a plate getting cold and hard....should just have guest toast their own bread when needed. Also milk for cereal is always warm yuck! milk should be placed in a mini fridge or some other place to keep it cool...existing container doesn't work. Fresh fruit for breakfast was only highlight.
Great hostel close to KLsentral and a excellent choice for getting to the airport early in the morning! Safe! Secure! Great Staff! Would stay here again! Thanks....K!
This Is a great and honest value for your money. Everything is as described in the photo and description. One thing that caught me by surprise was the bare concrete floors...but when I went back and checked their ad photo that's exactly what they show. Everything, shower, fan, lights, toilet all worked in good order. The bed was comfortable! The staff was helpful. Guesthouse is in a safe location and close to most of the local sites, (Saturday market, Sunday market, night bazaar, restaurants)!
This is a nice big guest house about a five minute walk to all the action of siem reap. The rooms are clean and secure. With a nice breakfast, (i recommend the vegetable soup with noddles...the cook does a wonderful dish) . Management is helpful and informative.
Well thought out hostel that is pretty much in china town or at least a few minutes away. Clean and secure. Nice private beds even in the dorm rooms. Helpful staff. Only short comings in the warm milk at breakfast and the cold toast.
Nice Hostel close to all the action and within walking distance of just about everything else. The owner in very helpful about most items that the traveler might need. Clean rooms and showers. Basic toast & tea/coffee breakfast. Padlock cabinets for your personal items could have better latches on them (a simple screwdriver could breach the latch). Still would stay here again. Been to a few hostels in KL and this is one of the nicer ones!
Nice hostel that has a friendly staff doing a great job. This hostel fill a need for affordable accommodations in Christchurch area. Security lookers would be a nice touch, but would stay here again. Thanks...K!
Cool hostel with one of the better view of queenstown. About three minuets walking from the center of town....which put it far enough to relax....while close enough to enjoy the nightlife.
Nice Hostel seconds from the international coach station and right in the center of everything. Secure, Clean, Big kitchen, free breakfast, free internet for laptops and smart phones. Thanks
Nice hostel right in the center of everything. great breakfast, secure, clean, nice kitchen. Big dorms in the rare can get noisy due to the location next to night club....mostly on weekends. Would stay here again but in smaller upstairs dorms.
Nice Hostel located right in the center of Dublin. Clean! Secure! Nice breakfast!
great location! great staff! safe and clean!
This will always be my first choose in hostels in Galway. Clean! Secure! Centrally located! Free WiFi! Well thought out kitchen! Thanks
This is one of the great budget accommodations in London unique because of it's classic architectural design that will put a smile on your face even before you enter the building.. The quality of the building is just a hint of the quality of thought, that goes into making your stay in London a pleasant one. The Staff is first class and knowledgeable about what to see and how best to get around London and the surrounding area. The beds have little touches that make it easier for you rest. Thanks
Nice hostel located close to the city center and snow hill train station. Covers most of the needs for affordable budget travelers, just need security lockers to make it a excellent choice.
This is one of two of the best hostels in London. The other is also own by the same people. The Swiss cottage, Palmers lodge, from the out side looks as if it could be a art museum with stunning classic english brick work and spacious vaulted ceilings. Secure, clean, and comfortable, helps to makes this one of my first choices for a place to rest and recover after experiencing what London has to offer!
Nice accommodations close to the main high street but far enough away to be peaceful.
Another pleasant stay at palmers lodge! The staff are first rate. The ambiance is classic. the swiss cottage area is friendly and interesting. Thanks again!
A great hostel with two cool love birds that greet you as you arrive. Hostel is in a nice part of London with easy access to many the best location of London, by a bus that stops right outside the hostel 24hours a day.. A classic motorcycle collection greets you in the game room/ bar. Secure, comfortable, and clean....make this and it's sister hostel two of the best budget accommodations in London!
Hands down the best hostel in Cardiff and easily one of the top five hostels in the UK! My first choice in hostels when in Cardiff. Safe, Secure, Clean....and attention to details, by the brother and sister owners, that make your stay special!
Nice hostel above a very cool London pub next to the paddington station. So convenience is a plus if you need to get the train or tube. Bathrooms and shower were clean. Breakfast was excellent. Free WiFi. A little noisy due to the outside traffic so one should weigh solitude versus convenience. May be still worth a try.
Great hostel, great location, would stay again.......Thanks
Another pleasant stay at one of the premier hostels in london! Thanks
My First choice in hostels when in Canterbury. Kipps is always trying to make your stay a special experience, to be fondly remembered! Clean, secure place to relax between discovering what Kent has to offer. Great job on the garden!
One of the top hostels in London. Located in a safe and interesting area of London. The building itself is a huge beautiful brick and vaulted ceiling structure. Safe secure and clean!
Nice hostel in a great location......thanks
Safe and secure hostel! As a bonus through out the public space is sprinkled rare and unique practical artifacts and cool prints....motorcycles, tastefully crafted chairs and benches...etc. The owners seem always to be on the lookout for items that make their first class lodging even more special!
If your into staying in hostels to save money and meet other travelers than this is a excellent choice. Great location, clean, secure, free wifi........would stay again.
