A nice hostel located in southern Osaka. Really cheap and fair for what we get. The first impression is the atmosphere of this century/decade: we entered and nobody said HI except the staff, no heads nodding and we immediately thought that we wouldn't fit. We enjoyed of course! Enough clean showers, lovely staff, laundry, reliable WiFi and just a few meters from a Metro and JR stations.

It's a nice traditional hostel, valued for the money. The WiFi doesn't work very well beyond the lobby. The bunk beds have curtains so there's some individual privacy. It is a bit far from center, but can be reached walking.

I was actually at the same hostel some years ago, as good as always, although I felt it more impersonal. Location is great, near Hakata Station and that shopping Arcade, the Yatais and 20 minutes walking to some Temples or Onsens. Night owls may find it not that convenient though.

Nice old building, foot distance to Rustaveli Avenue, Freedom Square, Dry Bridge and some bars. Staff are a bit quiet, but they're very, very friendly! They give useful information and help whenever necessary. We hanged out there until 2AM the next night after we checked out, since our plane would be at 4AM. We were even invited to shower and have tea/coffee. The common area may be nice... or quiet... specially when the guests are all there just using the wifi, but I suppose that's common now..

Hostel Georgia, Tbilisi, Georgia
6.9
28th May 2014

The reason for I chose this hostel were: 24 hours reception (we landed at 4am) and near the train station (had to take a Mashrutka at 5am the next day). In this regard Hostel Georgia has what you need. When we arrived everything was dark and didn't look precisely clean, but it actually was. Toilets are a bit too small and in the same room as the shower, which makes it a bit messy, but I guess that's OK. It's run by 2 of the nicest Japanese guys I ever met! They also offer dinner, wifi and wine

A capsule hotel, an experience. One goes here for the experience, or because one needs it. One knows what one gets. The staff, although a bit non-personal, is efficient. Atmosphere is just anonymous, mostly Japanese men are here and the few foreigners we saw were busy with their stuffs. RIght in front of the Seibu Shinjuku station, and already in Kabukucho district.

Excellent location at the Northern Quarter, basic breakfast included, cool staff, clean enough. Something I noticed: Friday night the ambient was like Party, Saturday night, everything was empty and the security was stricter

View Property Reply

....uhmm...that's because we like to mix it up a bit, do things backwards......? Haha Saturday is usually our busier night, and we up the security when we have more guests in, stag do's etc. I'm supposing that everyone was just very well behaved that night, so let's give them a round of applause :D

The toilettes sometimes didn't flush, that kind of stunk (literally), but also the guests didn't precisely contribute to try to keep the facilities not that dirty. There aren't lockers, but you can leave your valuables at the reception. The common area was always crowded.. with people busy with their smart devices, a bit depressing. On the bright side, the staff organizes almost every night a nice event

It was a surprise that our private room was not at the Hostel's address, but at an annex, some meters (100 or more) ahead. Room is clean, bathroom and kitchen too. We were quite busy in Leipzig, so I cannot talk about how convenient the place is for partying and stuff. Good Hostel, I'd come back.

Urbano does its best, and the best, is that they aren't aiming 'just to be the best', so there's always room for improving. Clean enough (bathroom had stains), friendly, wifi reliable, location kind of good for partying (not my goal)

Apple Hostel, Hong Kong, Hong Kong

6th Sep 2012

Apple Hostel is rather a hotel in the Chungking Mansion; the wonderful woman from the staff was so helpful, that she even helped me in my last day, when I felt sick; they even let me to stay in my room one more hour after my checkout. The rooms are cleaned in daily basis; room is narrow, but I was only there to sleep, so no complain. Chungking is next the TST station, the ferry, Knutsford Terrace, Canton Road, so it is everything but boring. No common area, so meeting ppl is limited to the lift.

FFH made me feel welcome and the staff was helpful whenever they were there (they state clearly that it isn't 24h staff). Near the Peace Park and the Main Station, many spots can easily be reached, even by foot (like Ximen). At night there isn't much in the area though. Bathrooms are clean enough, Wifi worked well, they quickly organized for me an extra night.. I would come back

Station Hostel for Backpackers, Cologne, Germany
8.0
25th Jul 2012

24 hours staff was good, since we only had a stop-ove for a night. Location is "good", where "good" means "convenient": one can easily get to the Main Station and the Cathedral, however, late at night, although not shady, the area can be a bit awkward. Toilettes looked clean, but they didn't precisely smell clean; at our floor, the smell was present in almost the complete hall. The breakfast is available since 6am, another plus; even if it's not included in the price

View Property Reply

Hallo..thanks for your review...we consider our Location to be one of our biggest plus points..convenient and perfectly safe...being close to the train staion has plus and minus points as in any major city. As for the Hallways,we are working on a solution for the ventilation...we have "Fire" Doors (obviously for your saftey) which prevent a good air circulation..but a new system should solve this problem in the near future.

The hostel is well located, near Roma, Condesa and Zona Rosa, so you can easily go by foot to those places; even to the Chapultepec park, some museums and Reforma. The Breakfast was a nice surprise, the women in the kitchen are fantastic. The staff was efficient, but the guy who was on daytime at the weekend, barely smiled, he was helpful and efficient without doubt, but without a smile, it was not appealing to ask him for help

You get what you pay for. We were there in a very cold night, and there was no heater in our tiny room, that was the biggest drawback. The walls are also very thin, the guys next door came back from party early in the morning and they just didn't care while making noises. We were only one night, and we hardly could sleep.

I was not sure what to give to 'Cleanliness', the place is not dirty, but it looks like :-) don't take me wrong. The best is the Location, since it's near the lovely area of Asakusa, and also just a meters away from the Station which links direct to the Airport. However, it's an experience to stay at this place, it is an old-fashioned capsule hotel, it's like a little time travel.

The staff are the friendliest persons I met in Hakata, they gave me a nice souvenir for chopsticks and the girl even helped me to find the apple vinegar I wanted to buy. Overall it's a nice and clean hostel. I can't tell much about "Location", the weather was so bad that I only appreciate that it's in the shopping arcade and not far from City Canal or the Yaitas.

36 ROOMS Berlin Kreuzberg, Berlin, Germany
6.0
18th Jun 2011

36 Rooms is actually an average hostel. They ask to be quiet between 10pm-7am, but that doesn't mean that all the guests do it; the same with smoking. There's an extra 2.50 Eur for bed linens; in our case we had to ask more than once; we only got one; later on, past midnight, we got the other one. The bathroom is not the cleanest, but ok; no toilette paper.

Close to the Otsuka Station in the Yamanote Line; so it's easy to go to any direction: East to Ueno, Akihabara, etc; West to Shinjuku, Shibuya, Harajuku; and to Nippori for going to the Airport. It's fine for the price.

1st Oct 2009

Near Yudanaka Station, actually easy to find, but there`s no Roman board :) Shimaya is one of the most memorable places we`ve stayed. Our shared room was empty, so we were alone there as well as in the bath. And yes, it has a sincere Japanese style. The Manager is a role model for any host: he took us to the Monkey Park, to the Station, to the Onsen.. and picked us up. Not to mention all the tips he gave to explore around: Obuse, hiking trails.. On top we met nice Japanese and foreign people.

I guess Jun, the friendly guy from the hostel, has both traveled a lot and met people with different interests/nationalities: the hostel is a place where (almost) anybody can feel comfortable. Take advantages of the tips he gives, whether you want to get the best for your money or for the quality. We were lucky there, met post-graduate students, a young backpacker, an adult world traveler, so there wasn't that horrible ambient of 24hour-party-people. Next time I'm in Busan I'll be back here

Young people are running this hostel, with lots of interests, so whenever a visitor has a doubt or question they're always trying to find an answer or advice. We slept in three different rooms: Dorms which are just a bit to small; privates which were very fine; and a kind of private dorm, which was very, very small, hardly with space for our luggages. I'd go back here.
