The owner is very friendly. The keys to the lockers open more than one locker. There's a big gate with a big lock on the front gate. It's about a five minute walk out of the main tourist area. It's a safe walk but I never felt 100% safe doing it. The room was quite dark and hot - no air con or fan.

I stayed 8 nights and it was fine. Nothing special, nothing terrible. It's a 10 minute walk to the centre, 15 to the main beach. It's in a quiet area. There's no common room so it's not very sociable. I booked a single but got a bunk bed to myself. It was fine but the mattress had seen better days (it sloped to one side). The room was a reasonable size and was cleaned every few days. There's a basic kitchen on the top floor. No laundry or other facilities.

2nd Oct 2015

New, modern hostel 5 minutes from the tourist areas. Good sized rooms with comfy beds. Great common room. Excellent staff. The Wifi is slow (the maximum I measured was 1.2 MB/s in the common room and my 2nd floor dorm room). The kitchen is small and full of staff at night as they make the evening meal so you can't easily use it. No laundry but there's one across the street. The 2 euro breakfast is a bargain. Would definitely stay again.

Friendly, helpful staff. Great, large outdoor area for hanging out in. Bang in the "middle of town". 5 minute walk to the beach. Next door to the mini-market. Good and large breakfast and lunch provided. Fast WiFi. No lockers in the rooms but the rooms have double locks and bars on the window so it’s pretty secure. The rooms and bathrooms are good but not brilliant – it’s not a brick, hostel building – you’re in wooden huts – from that perspective they’re great.

4th Sep 2015

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Very comfy beds with thick duvet. Clean rooms with lockers. Good breakfast and excellent rooftop area with a great view. Reasonable (but not super fast) Wifi - about average for Turkey. Quiet at night. The only issue was that the water was off during the day. Apparently the water gets turned off for the whole town. They do tours but no hard sell.

Thank you for your review. You are right there is water problem all in the town which is not good for day time but we have already fixed that problem at least for ourself hostel. Made big tanks and our own pomps so we have water reserve now and never going to be problem again for our hostel.

Good location in the old town. Average security - 6 bed dorm has door lock and very small lockers. 13 bed dorm has no lock or lockers. Some street noise form cars and restaurants. Good breakfast. Great roof top area. Comfy beds. Bathrooms have seen better days but are OK. Good staff but tried to bribe me with beer and pressure me to create review in front of him. I said no. Got hassled about it during the day which was uncomfortable. Not sure how many reviews here were coerced.

Small hostel in the middle of the old town. Great location. They was an extra bed (for me) on the first night. It made the room a bit cramped. It was also very uncomfortable = little sleep. There was some street noise until 12-1am each night but not too bad, The home cooked breakfast was good. The owner was friendly and helpful. There were lockers in the hallway. The bathroom was big but needs some work - it tended to flood after a shower and the toilet seat was broken. I would stay again.

Nice clean place on a quiet street. The seven bed dorm is actually three rooms with 2, 2 and 3 beds. The rooms are a bit small but not too bad. There are no lockers in the room but the building/area feels pretty safe. The beds are comfy. Good breakfast. It's a 20 minute walk to the train station and 10 mins to the tourist area.

Great place. Very clean. Plenty of showers. The rooms had comfy beds and large lockers. The staff were helpful and friendly with basic English spoken. There was plenty of room in the 4-bed dorm room. The six that I moved to would have been a bit small if full but I had it to myself so no issues. There's a large common room with kitchen. It's a five minute walk to the metro and 20+ mins walk to the centre. It's four stops on the metro to the train station with a change.

Very clean hostel with a large dorm room, comfy beds and medium sized lockers. Good kitchen. Good location in the centre of the tourist area (It could do with a sign outside to make it easier to find). There was some noise from outside late at night and early in the morning. Atmosphere was a bit lacking since none of the guests spoke to each other. I was the only English speaker so I couldn't talk to people. Not sure why everybody else was so quiet.

Not really a traditional hostel, more like a converted second floor above a bar. Luckily there’s no noise from the bar. There's no kitchen. There is a common room but there are four beds in it. It has a good location. The lockers are actually old suitcases with a padlock. They’re not secured to anything so anybody could walk off with it. Or even squeeze their hand inside. You’re not given a key so you can get locked out over lunch or at night since there’s not a 24 hour reception.

21st Jul 2015

It's university halls converted for the summer holidays into a "hostel". However, doesn't have a traveller's feel or atmosphere. The room was spacious – I booked a single but the room had three beds. I think it would be cramped with 3 people. Also, no aircon. The room was clean but there was a funny smell in the bathroom. Security is good – lock on the door and all the cupboards and draws in the rooms had locks. There was a kitchen on each floor but pans, plates or cutlery.

Friendly, helpful staff. Great location by the main square. It’s a small, quiet, non-party hostel. Really clean. Excellent security (it’s like Fort Knox) with medium sized lockers in the good sized room. Reception hours are limited but they opened up early for my arrival and I've seen them stay late for late arrivals. Just contact them first.

Really nice friendly place. It's more like you're staying in somebody's home than a hostel. Which you kind of are. Great outdoor social space. But they make sure it stays quiet after 11-ish. 2 minutes from the train and bus station. 5-10 minutes from the Old Town. They do a good day tour around the local area. The lockers are a bit small (think letter box size). But your things seem to be pretty safe there.

Friendly staff. Good location - About five minutes from the centre. The 4-bed dorm was cramped but the larger dorms had more room. There's a nice (but smokey) out door area at the back and another at the front (with ping pong table). Key swipe to get in but no locks on the room doors. The lockers in the rooms were small. No kitchen.

Dear Chris, thank you for your feedback. We would like to inform you that there is a kitchen, fully equipped in the underground floor. Sometimes, in a big building is difficult to find everything. In the future, please ask if you need anything or can't find anything that you expect to find in a hostel, we do our best to provide an enjoyable experience for our guests. see you next time. enjoy

Large, comfy, modern beds with curtains for privacy. Large lockers. Spacious room with couch (although they let somebody sleep on it so we couldn't use it. And when you pay for a 4 bed dorm it shouldn't have extra people in it). Friendly staff (plus one who didn't care - breakfast was 15min late because facebook was more important). The place needs some maintenance - broken elevator, shower bracket, kettle and fridge. The breakfast was poor - bread was provided but no bread knife or toaster.

Chris, my friend ! It is so nice to see , that you loved our home made lemonade :) As you know - we don't have bunk beds and our dorm room is huge with only 4 beds :) The Roman Wall in the middle of our Dining Room is more than 2000 years old :) Thank you also for your new booking-we are waiting to see you back in August !

It's a hotel but they've added extra beds to some rooms to make it a dorm. The beds aren't that great. And the bathroom door is broken. You have to share a single key with the other people in the room. Despite the other reviews the two guys I saw at reception could speak English. The location is good for the train station but it's a 20 minute walk to the old town. There's nothing to do in the hostel or the area around it at night.

Nice place in quiet area. It's about a 15 minute walk to the centre. There are lockers in the room albeit weak locks. Staff are friendly and helpful. The dorms could do with curtains so you don't get woken up by the sun at 6am. The outside garden is good for relaxing.

View Property Reply

We really appreciate that you liked our garden, that's one of the reason we are 15 minutes walk from the city center. We can not have such a big, quiet and relaxing garden in the city center. We hoped traveler understand this. At every window we have rolls, they are very well integrated in the house architecture and are here since the beginning of the house(maybe that's why you didn't saw them). Thank you very much for the honest review, we really appreciate your opinion!

Wasn't quite up to the Wombat's standard that I've seen before. The room was dark and the mattresses were thin. And as you can see from the other reviews - THE INTERNET SUCKS. It's slow and the connection drops every 10 minutes. That being said, it's still one of the top hostels around. But the competition is high in Budapest and I would stay at one of their rivals next time.

Thanks, Chris. No, cold showers AREN"T normal. Luckily, we found the short in the system that was causing intermittent outages. We were glad you stayed, and we hope to see you again, Carolyn

Great location in the centre but still quiet. The place looks brand new. It has an excellent kitchen and a roof garden (not much to see up there). There's no staff - it's run through a shop downstairs. So you can only check in/out when the shop is open. A bit of a pain if you want to leave before 10am. Not much atmosphere since the place was empty. I was the only person in the whole place on the first night. The six bed dorm was ok for one but would be very cramped with 6 people.

Good sized single room (Especially for New York). There's a large outside seating area and a TV room. The kitchen is pretty sparse. And the refrigerator was out of order when I was there. Not much tourist info is given out (the hostels in NYC that I usually stay at give out maps and organize daily tours. There was none of that here).

Great location by the beach and 5-10 minutes from Sun beach. The 8 bed dorm would have been cramped if full but there were never more than 4 of us during my stay. Nice common area with chairs, hammocks and a small, basic kitchen. The an attached bar / restaurant. It closes early (11 to 12-ish) so there's no late night noise. And the staff did my laundry for free. Bonus.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Good location for the ferry. But there's not really any other reason to come to Fajardo. There's nothing here. Security: there are 8 lockers in the 15 bed dorm room - you do the math. Rooms are clean and modern. The dorm beds are triples - you won't be able to sit up. I had to roll into my bed ;-). There's a large roof top area which makes the place quite sociable.

This place has a huge potential. It's got a great location, a roof garden and plenty of common spaces. The problem is that the staff suck. It took about 15 minutes to check me in because they were working slower than slow motion. And during my entire stay they were more interested in their twitter feeds than acknowledging my presence at their desk. Unfortunately it seems to be a family business so it looks like the place is stuck with them.

Excellent staff. They provide a bagel for breakfast, sandwich for lunch and a cooked meal for dinner (rice and chicken one night, pizza the next). Spacious rooms with lockers and a bathroom. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach / main area. Great outdoor area - Expect a lot of noise from this area until 12am-1am.

Friendly staff. Good location (6-10 blocks north and it would have been perfect). The lobby and ground floor look good. The second floor is looking a little tired. Especially the bathroom. My room was sparse - two bunk beds a trash bin. A chair would have been good but anything more and it would have started to get cramped. There were good sized lockers under the bed. Bar OK for few drinks during happy hour but wouldn't pay full price for drinks here. The weekday price is fair value.

Not the party hostel I was expecting (but I wan't looking for that and it was off season). They have a bar but nobody used drank there. They still had pub crawls going on - and people arriving back at 4am. Good breakfast. Good location - 10 minutes from the train station and five from the (crappy) beach. Friendly staff.

Clean hostel. Large, spacious rooms with lots of lights. Good security with the building's door and the hostel door on the second floor. But dorm rooms are open and the lockers had weak locks (but the risk felt minimal). The showers were push button which only provided three seconds of water at a time - Really annoying. Friendly staff with lots of advice and local info.

Cool hostel. Excellent roof garden. Good breakfast. It's five minutes from the main medina gate. The directions given on the web site don't actually direct you to the hostel. But there are signs on the walls that lead you there. And plenty of annoying people who are desperate to take you there whether you want them to or not. There are no lockers in the room. And the door to the dorm room is never locked. However, the place has a safe non-theft vibe.

thanks for the comments Chris and for thinking its a cool hostel and has an excellent roof terrace and good breakfast and the location is good. We do state that there are no lockers and the dorm room is the responsability of the clients in the room whether its locked or not but delighted you sensed that it was a safe place and theft is not an issue.

Good hostel. Good staff. The 10 bed dorm was a bit cramped thanks to the extra four poster bed in the middle. For the 12 people there were only six lockers. And one bathroom. They do good value meals every night. However, be prepared to wait. (I had to wait 1 hour on the first night and two on the second). They run a good medina tour every morning. It goes to a few shops but there's no pressure to buy.

Hello and thank your for your review. While there is only one bathroom in each shared room, there is another bathroom next to the common area that can be used if the shared bathroom is occupied. Sorry about the lengthy waiting time for dinner - we will do our best to have dinner ready on time.

No heating in the room. But thick blankets. The owner / manager is very friendly - in five different languages. There was no hot water on the first night but it was hot enough to burn my skin off the next morning. Breakfast was the standard orange juice, mint tea, jam and bread. The hotel is in a good central location, albeit, not in the best neighbourhood. There are heavy duty locks on the doors but they're badly fitted. A good kick from a 12 year would get you in.

Good hotel. Excellent beds and rooms with lockers. The air-con didn't work so I was freezing the first night. The court yard seems to amplify any noise so expect noise until the early hours. The so called barbecue was not very impressive. Barbecue to means more than one single skinny chicken leg to me. Although there was plenty of rice and salad. I told this to the chef but he just laughed. It is hard to find.

Good location in the centre of town just a few blocks from the beach. I was in a 6-bed dorm. The bathroom was very large and clean. There's no kitchen but they do good meals every night for 7 Euros. The bar was pretty loud on Friday night but quiet on other nights (probably a different story in the peak season). There are no lockers in the rooms - or anywhere else in the building.

Good spacious rooms. The six bed dorm room had a desk and couch. In other countries they would have squashed at least 12 beds in there. The mattress were made of foam but not too bad. The hostel was very quiet. But then so was Vilnius itself (I was expecting loads of UK stag parties but I didn’t see one). This was the end of September so maybe it was out of season. The staff were friendly.

I stay here on two occasions. The first night I was in a full 10 bedroom door. It was fairly cramped and got very hot during the night since it was full. This time the dorm was half full and was not as sweaty. The rooms and showers were clean and in good condition. The breakfast was also good (cereal, tea and toast). The staff were friendly and helpful. Having the reception and rooms in a different building was annoying but not the end of the world. There were no lockers in the room.

Excellent staff. Very friendly and full of useful information. They provide a good breakfast every morning although hot chocolate, croissants and orange juice got a bit boring by day three. The dorm rooms aren't locked but there are lockers in the rooms (five lockers for six beds ???). There’s a nice garden to chill out in plus free wi-fi and computers. The only down side is the location. It’s a 25+ minute walk to the city centre. Or 10-15 minutes to the underground station.

The hostel is in a bad location about 2 miles out of the city centre. Unless you're there for a sporting event in which case it is perfect. The staff are good. I sent about three emails to them regarding my arrival and non-arrival time (thanks British Airways) and got immediate replies. They spent a long time working out where my ferry was going from (even if they sent me to the wrong place). The dorm room was very big and spacious. The lockers were outside. There are lots of common areas.

Reasonable location near the centre. It's a 15+ minute walk to the nearest attractions. The dorm room was small but the showers and bathrooms were even smaller. The shower was about 2 feet by 2 feet so don't try to swing a cat. The advert says there are lockers but these are not in the rooms but in the basement (about two floors under ground). The common areas are good and large. The breakfast is excellent.

Good location in the centre. Although Bergen is pretty small and a five minute walk will get you any where. The hostel is clean and in good condition. There are "lockers" in the rooms - they're actually wardrobes with locks on. The back had fallen off mine so it would be possible break into them by pulling the wardrobe forward, away from the wall but nobody had worked this out and there didn't seem to be a risk there anyway. The (mens) bathrooms are small. There's a cool lift from the 50s.

Good hostel in a good location*. It's a two minute walk to the start of the bars and five minutes to get to the middle of the action. But if you want a quiet night then you're far enough away to not hear a thing. Very friendly staff. It scored low on character and fun because it was very quiet there - due off season? *Note: the hostel is in Gumbet not Bodrum. Bodrum is only a 3 miles / 2.75THL bus ride away. And there seems to be a bus every five minutes.

I've put good for security because they check your pass everytime you enter the building but there was no lock on my dorm room so anybody could walk in. A bit expensive for what is offered.

Good location in the middle of town but it's looking a bit aged. It needs a lick of paint, new beds, mattress and carpets. Expect loud music from the ground floor until the early hours. It's a bit pricey for what it offers but this seems to be the norm in Amsterdam.

Good place. A bit far out of town but it only takes fifteen minutes to get to the centre on the Metro (plus a five minute walk to the station). I've stayed at a few St Christopher's now. They're great hostels. My only criticism is that they don't have any kitchens so you have to either head out or eat there - and they tend to have expensive food and drinks.

Good, clean hostel. It's only a few minutes walk from Paddington station. They do charge £3 for wifi which was a surprise because every other hostel I've stayed in London has it for free.

Good place. The big dorm room can be noisy thanks to the bar downstairs and the main road outside. The beds are new and in curtained cubiles for privacy. The only bad thing is that there's no kitchen or common area so you drawn to the bar for food and entertainment. Not good if you're on a budget and want to stick to pot noodles.

The dorm room was great. All of the beds were in cubicles with curtains so you could have some privacy. Each cubicle had a light and a power socket too. There was a main road/junction outside so there was a bit of traffic noise. And the pub downstairs meant that there was some duff-duff noise until 2am but it wasn�t too bad. I'd stay again.

Good for the price. The dorm room was fairly uncluttered considering the number of people crammed in there (it was the first time I had a three story bunk bed). The dorm was noisy thanks to the road outside. The kitchen and common area were pretty small. The staff were friendly and kept the place clean.

Good location � right outside China Town�s underground station. It was kept clean despite the number of beds crammed into such a small room (probably normal for Singapore).

Great location. Right in the centre and the underground is two minutes away. The staff aren´t much help. When I arrived I had to wait five minutes for them to stop watching tv and check me in. They must have been waiting for the adverts. My bed was missing a blanket. When I asked for one they said they would have to get one from another room. Then didn´t bother to get one. Again, the tv was more important. The place was kept clean.

Good hostel but a long way out of town (10-15 minute walk). It was very quiet. I was the only person in the 6 bed dorm which was a nice change.

Can\'t really say much about the place as when I turned up they had lost my booking. They did find me another place to stay around the corner.

OK location but it was very dark - the few lights they did have on must have had 20 Watt bulbs. The darkness seemed to keep the mossies happy. Wear some repelant here. It was off the main street so was very quiet.
