A lovely country-house environment, only a few minutes walk from the city centre (and major sights). Friendly and helpful staff. Good self-catering facilities, with a lovely dining area overlooking the gardens. Only negative was having no bedside lights or power-outlets in the female dorm.
My favourite hostel for short stays in central London. The staff are excellent - friendly, helpful and patient regardless of how busy they are. Lots of interesting travelers to chat to. Good facilities for self-catering.
A very comfortable place to stay when exploring the historic centre of Canterbury.
A very convenient location for people arriving in Bournemouth by train or coach. Located on a quiet street, a 10 minute walk from the seafront. The single room with ensuite was good value for money.
A great base for visitors to central London. The staff are exceptional, friendly and helpful 24/7.
Great location, friendly atmosphere, a well-managed facility.
Exactly what a hostel should be - great location, quiet at night, clean dorms, comfortable beds. Staff were all exceptional - friendly, patient, helpful and well-informed.
This hostel is located in Hove, west of Brighton proper. It's located on a quiet residential street, an easy walk from ftrain and bus services and close to the seafront promenade. The hostel used to be two older terraced houses, so the interior feels a bit cramped. My dorm room had no lockers, but was otherwise clean and comfortable. The hostel's policy of charging a 5% premium to pay by credit card should be reviewed.
Great location for access from station or bus. Convenient for walking to main sights in Chester. Friendly atmosphere.
Convenient for travellers in transit. Pickup at the airport was handled smoothly, staff were friendly (but minimal English spoken), room was clean and quiet.
Good location north of the former Italian Concession and across the river from the Old Town and Ancient Culture Street. Stylish rooms in a modern business hotel, spotlessly clean. Some staff very helpful, others less so. Minimal English spoken.
A good choice for overnight stay if you have a flight to catch. Pickup at airport went smoothly, registration and checkout was efficient. Room was quiet and very clean.
The management and staff of this small hostel are exceptional - available, helpful, and interested in their guests.
Located in Holland Park, this hostel is an oasis of calm in the middle of the city. Great cafeteria for breakfast and dinner. Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable.
Located on a quiet side street just a short walk from the historic city centre. Lovely, spacious single room with lots of little extras eg hairdryer, heater in the bathroom. Wonderful English breakfast!
Room met the high standard expected from this business hotel chain. Front desk staff were very efficient. Breakfast available in lobby, but this was crowded with guests waiting for the next shuttle bus - could be arranged better.
A short walk from both the long-distance bus station and the train station. Close to shopping areas and tourist sights. Room was older-style, with upgraded bathroom facilities.
This hotel chain consistently delivers what it promises - clean, comfortable, and inexpensive accommodation. The Zhongyangmen location is super-convenient if you are making a bus/train/plane transfer in Nanjing.
This hostel is 14km from downtown Chongqing in the ancient fishing port of Ci Qi Kou, which has been transformed into a shopping/eating/cultural area. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food excellent. Dorms were warm but common areas freezing cold, so not much interaction between travellers. Riverside location should be lovely in warmer weather.
Great location, helpful staff. It's been a cold winter and the central heating just couldn't cope. Dorms were warm, but common areas were freezing (so not much interaction with other travellers). One unusual feature here - no lockers in the dorms.
Great location on a quiet street only steps away from the bustle of Tottenham Court Road. An easy walk to the British Museum and many other tourist sites.
The room was modern and very clean. The staff efficient and friendly. The location is great for overnight transfers, as it's walking distance from the bus station (Jiangsu buses) and a short taxi ride from the train station. For sightseeing purposes, there are pleasanter parts of the city to stay in.
The room was modern and super-clean. Staff were efficient and very welcoming. The location is great - only 3 minutes walk from Da Ming Lake, and 15 minutes walk (or a short taxi ride) from the main shopping areas.
Great location next to West Lake Scenic Area. Inside bar/lounge, outside terrace and roof garden. Dorms clean and quiet but beds were rock-hard (even for China). Staff very friendly and helpful. Good food available at reasonable prices.
Clean rooms and facilities. Staff friendly and very helpful. Plenty of internet access. Food, coffee etc available all day in the restaurant/bar off the lobby. Lots of interesting travellers to talk to.
Modern room, spotlessly clean. Quiet location on a side street off main N-S road, easy access by bus or taxi to downtown. Set-meals in the restaurant are good value for solo travellers. Lobby internet access not available during my stay.
Long, dark corridors make this place feel institutional though the upgraded rooms were clean. Convenient for getting buses to the out-of-town tourist sights, but a long walk from the city centre.
Large room, modern decor, spotlessly clean. Staff pleasand and helpful, management speak English. Set-meals available in the ground-floor restaurant (Chinese food/English menu) are good value for solo travellers.
Great location in the centre of town. Guest rooms are located in the back courtyard, so very quiet. Room was warm, plenty of hot water. The food in the restaurant was excellent but spoiled by the room's chilly temperature and dim lighting.
Clean, modern room, in a brand-new building. Designed for business travellers so limited storage space. Breakfast buffet good value for 10RMB. Staff helpful, management speak English. Location convenient for sightseeing in west or south of city. Easy access by bus or taxi to city centre.
