Good location near the Termini Station, so there is easy access to trains and busses to all parts of the city and beyond. Lots of shops and restaurants. Small outdoor market every morning, a few streets away. Staff is very helpful and they work very hard to keep this hostel running well. This was my 4th stay at Hostel Beautiful 2 and I would return if I am in Rome again.

My third time at Alex. Very good hostel in a quiet neighborhood, short walk to town center. Easy access to main train station using nearby tram. The stairs can be a challenge unless you are young or very nimble. If not, I would recommend requesting a room on floors #0, 1 or 2. Very clean showers/toilets. Good hot water. Nice bar/lounge. One complimentary 1 euro drink. I would definitely return on my next visit to Stuttgart.

Great hostel right in the heart of old town. Irish style bar on the ground floor. Good breakfast included with room fee. I had a 4-bed mixed dorm (2 bunks) and the space was a bit tight, but the bathroom was en suite and immaculate. Great, helpful staff. This was my second stay there, and I would definitetly return

Great hostel in a former mansion. Quiet, residential neighborhood (Belsize Park). Not too far to walk to Regent's Park. Easy access to subway and buses. Immaculately clean! This was my 4th time there, and I would definitely return.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Immaculately clean, friendly/helpful staff, and a bar that one would expect to see at a very good hotel. Very well-run. Located in a quiet area in the western part of Paris, with easy access to the Metro and to the city center. I look forward to staying here again on my next visit to Paris.

My 4th year at Hostel Beautiful. As always, had a great time thanks to the wonderful staff, especially Arjay, Ranna and Shabul. Great location near the Termini Station, lots of good places to eat nearby. The hostel is kept very clean, and has excellent bathroom and shower facilities. I look forward to returning next year!

My first time at a hostel (in my own country!) so I didn't know what to expect, especially in NYC. This hostel turned out to be excellent. Clean, efficient, 2 blocks from the subway, good neighborhood with lots of restaurants, and a short walk to the Empire State Building. Free cruise around Manhattan! The only negative was my dormmates: Glued to their electronic devices and hiding behind their laptops, zero social skills. Not the hostel's fault, more of a growing sociological problem.

This was my 3rd stay at Hostel Beautiful. Excellent location near the Termini train station, restaurants, shops, and an open air market. I recommend the restaurant downstairs. Free continental breakfast is provided at the corner cafe. Staff is friendly and helpful; dorm rooms and bathrooms are kept very clean. Secure lockers provided. I've had very good luck with dorm mates at this hostel, linking up with interesting fellow travelers. I plan to stay here again on my next visit to Rome.

Very good hostel (my second time there). Not far from the town center, on a not-too-busy street. Easy access to the tram. Helpful, friendly staff; clean facilities. Has a good bar/lounge, large dining hall and great breakfasts. Also, there is an elevator, large lockers (and a shoe-shine machine!) My only wish would be that they had normal pillows, not the huge, soft type that all the German accommodations seem to have.

It is nice to hear, that you liked your second visit as much as the first one! We offer a breakfast-buffet for only 4,50 �. In this breakfast you can get everything you need to have a good start in the day ;) If you visit us a third time, you will notice, that we renovated our bar. Now there is new colour on the walls, a new floor and new furnitures. It really looks pretty good! We hope, that there will be a better atmosphere in the hostel right now =) Thank you for your feedback! We hope to welcome you again. Nice greetings from Cologne!!

Lavish, spacious former mansion. Clean, well-run. This was my 3rd or 4th stay. It's bit away from the city center, but there is easy access to subway (Swiss Cottage station) and bus, and you're in town in a couple of minutes. Neighborhood is a mix of quiet, handsom residential streets on one side and shops and places to eat on the other. It was actually good to get away from the hectic tourist centers in the evenings. Walk to Regent's Park and Zoo. Great hostel, highly recommended.

This is a large hostel spread over several floors of an apartment block.

Not a scenic neighborhood, but safe and practical for reaching any part of Rome and beyond. Staff is very helpful and friendly. This was my third stay at Beautiful, and it was better then ever. Rooms vary. The second room I was put in was excellent. Good shower and drainage. Rooms and baths are c

Excellent hostel. Actually more like staying in a really nice apartment with kitchen, living room with large screen tv, and dining room. Rooms are not crowded. Staff is very helpful. Not a party hostel, but you can certainly meet up with people and go out to party the the Old Town, which has one of the most beautiful squares in Europe

Great hostel, right in the middle of the action in Old Town. The bar is downstairs, and my room was right above it, but there was no noise problem, though I did have earplugs just in case. Very helpful, friendly staff. The shower in our room was better than the one I have at home! Room was a bit crowded with 6 beds (3 bunks)but that seems to be the standard set-up in most hostels. I was sad to leave.

Good hostel. It has a wholesome, upbeat Christian orientation but they aren't pushy about it. Located right in the Old Town and, ironically, the Red Light District. Breakfast was good, but would have been good to have some fruit offered (we pilgrims need our daily vitamin C)

This was my second time at Hostel Beautiful. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms and en suite bath were imaculate. I had a 4-bed room on the 4th floor. The room even had an air conditioner so we could close the window at night. This is the only hostel I've ever stayed at where they bring your breakfast into the room! Would be nice if they had lockers but you can leave valuables at the desk. Great location near the train station, with many restaurants and laundremats nearby.

Wonderful hostel in a converted Victorian mansion. Quiet location, near the subway/metro. Free internet. Some of the toilet facilities a bit cramped (very tiny sinks!) but clean. To get to some of the rooms you have to go through one of the bathrooms, which was OK but seemed odd. Would definitely stay there again.

Good place to stay when visiting York. We had a private room. There was some noise from the busload of school kids, but not a big problem. (After all, it is a youth hostel, not a hotel, so this should be expected). Food offering at the cafeteria could be better. Typical Yorkshire menu, I suppose. But plenty of places to eat in town, if you prefer. Nice lounge and bar. Excellent, very well appointed kitchen if you want to prepare your own food.

For the small cost charged for a single room, I wasn\'t expecting much. However, I was VERY surprised and pleased. The room had a double bed, and seemed more like what you\'d get in a nice hotel. My floor was very quiet. Clean, well maintained bathrooms. Breakfast was in the bar downstairs. The owners also ran a (not expensive) restaurant on the ground floor. Hostel was a bit farther from Termini, but a quieter neighborhood. Very nice family. I would definitely return.

Very upbeat, fun hostel, across from the train station and a short walk to the historic center. Clean, bright, and great breakfasts. Helpful, responsive staff. They even bake pies for the guests! Sometimes the wait for the bathrooms was a bit long since the laundry, shower and toilet were all in the same room. Locks were provided, however these need to be re-installed so that the screws are not accessible to anyone with a screwdriver. However, I wasn\'t too concerned about this, and felt safe.

Good location near Prado Museum, Atocha Station and metro stop. On a street with many buildings under restoration. The area should be quite attractive when finished. Also, there is a good selection of eating places in the Huerta district nearby. Common area is small and not really set up for lounging or meeting other travellers. But a good place just for sleeping at low cost.
