PLUS Florence

Florence, Italy
89%

It sort of lacks common areas because the bar area closes when the bar closes, so if it's too cold on the roof terrace your only option is to keep drinking in reception or on the stairs... I reckon this place would be awesome in the summer with more people around, nicer roof terrace weather and hopefully less hoards of school kids (!). All in all though, a good option, and I'd probably come back if I found myself in Florence again. The room was great and the barman was very friendly...

I have only good things to say... this place is spotlessly clean, the beds are solid wood, there are plenty of plug sockets in the rooms and it's 5 minutes walk from the train station... it ticked every box for what I wanted.

Retro Hostel Shevchenko

More of a budget hotel with some dorm rooms than a 'hostel'... there's no real hostel atmosphere. But if you just want a cheap place to stay, this is perfect. The location is good, the staff are friendly and they get a special bonus point for not trying to rip off football fans during Euro 2012 with high prices, thank you!

There are signs announcing an 11pm noise curfew but this curfew is not enforced. I'm not saying this is a bad thing. If you want to be pre-drinking until the early hours this is great! But it's not a hostel where you're going to get a good night's sleep, so bear that in mind... come here to party!

Montenegro Hostel

Some staff members have a sense of humour that will make you think they're rude... but don't take too much notice, or just laugh it off. They're fine really. Some little things let this hostel down like lack of toilet paper and only having 1 computer for internet access, but I ended up staying a week. Kotor is an amazing place, even if this is not an amazing hostel... but it'll do just fine.

Like everyone else says, the best thing about this hostel is the 'war tour' run by the owner... being picked up from the train station for free was also nice. Generally a very nice place to stay.

Ok overall, but be aware that reception closes from 2pm-5pm. Actually, nobody turned up until 6, even though we specified an arrival time of 4 and were there on time. (we were tired enough to sleep on the street but you may not be)

OldHouse Hostel

Well located and was ideal for us as a couple. They could do with an extra member of staff at times and the showers are the kind that make the whole room wet. But seeing as they're the only bad points I can make, that means it's fairly good.

I was only here for one night but what is immediately obvious is that this is a massive hostel not ideal for single travelers. Everything about it is very good, but more suited to groups I\'d say. Could do with some more computers.

This hostel is very homely, and there\'s a nice atmosphere. There\'s some long-termers here who take over the social areas a little bit but if you meet the right people you\'ll have a great time... It\'s seriously close to Bedford-Nostrand subway station in Brooklyn, 20-30 minutes from Manhattan.

One of the best hostels I've ever had the pleasure of staying in... It's very well hidden in the medina and the chances of finding it on your arrival are slim but there will be plenty of kids on hand willing to show you the way for 10 dirham. Stay here. The 8 bed-dorm is pretty special.

I loved this place. You *will* get lost if you try to find it alone, so make the call and they have someone to collect you. Really relaxing vibes and pretty damn clean. You\'ll fall in love with the dog.

Located in between the old town and the beach this hostel is \'probably\' the best in Tarifa... should always be people up for partying too.
