Paintshop Hostel, Figueira da Foz, Portugal
10.0
20th Jul 2016

We enjoyed our stay at The Paintshop. Staff were always friendly and helpful. On the day we arrived, they had their Wednesday BBQ night which was awesome and great value. A good breakfast is also offered and served until 11am so you don't need to wake up too early. The common area is spacious and comfortable and has a 1 Euro pool table. They also have a small bar at the back. If you're heading to Figueira da Foz, I'd definitely recommend staying at The Paintshop Hostel.

Peniche Surf Lodge, Peniche, Portugal
10.0
17th Jul 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Peniche Surf Lodge. Claire and Duncan were great hosts. They make everything easy from organizing equipment rentals to daily transport to the beach where they would set up a base for us all to hang out complete with beach umbrellas and towels. They offer surf lessons as well (thanks Dane for your patience!). The house is set up well with a kitchen to cook if you wish and the place itself is always kept clean. Hoping to come back again and stay longer next time.

Located in a very cool neighbourhood with lots of places nearby to eat and drink. This was my first visit to Dresden and hopefully I'll make it back soon and I'll definitely be staying at Lollis when I do.

Conveniently located near China Town with public transport nearby to get you to other parts of the city with ease. It's a relatively small hostel, which I like, helping to create such a good social vibe at the hostel. There was a nice little kitchen and common area. The staff were great, especially Kat who gave us a great rundown of the city upon arrival and was able to answer any questions we had. San Francisco is an awesome city and if you're looking for a cool hostel, stay here!!

Cinnamon Hostel, Wroclaw, Poland

8th Jul 2013

Extremely helpful and friendly staff that gave us some great tips for seeing the beautiful city of Wroclaw. The hostel had a nice kitchen and spacious common rooms for meeting fellow travellers. The location is great, only about a 15 min walk to the bus and train stations and a couple minutes walk from the main square in the center of the city. Will definitely stay here again when we come back!

Midtown Hostel, Gdansk, Poland

2nd Jul 2013

Excellent location located a short walk from the train station. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly. The rooms felt spacious with under bed storage to keep all your belongings secrue. Also, the bathrooms were beautiful and very clean all the time; however, there were only a couple of them and they always seemed to be busy regardless of the time of day. Gdansk is a beautiful city and you should stay at Midtown if passing through.

Staff was very welcoming and helpful. It was nice to have 24 hour reception as we arrived late in the evening. There was a nice social vibe there but it would have been nice if their bar stayed open later than 11pm (even though we understand the noise factor). Would stay there again if we come to Warsaw.

It's the perfect place to escape from big cities. It feels more like a house than a hostel and being so small, everyone gets to know each other. Special thanks to Brandon for entertaining us and showing us all around during our stay. We'll be back soon!

Amazing place, amazing people... Perfect location, so central and easy to find! It's a brand new hostel and it's awesome!! The dorm rooms are spacious with their own bathrooms and there's a lot of common space including a big kitchen and really cool and comfy TV room. This is a great place if you are traveling by yourself as there are always activities planned and the staff make sure you get involved. Bottom line - stay here!!

We all really enjoyed our stay at Hostel Majdas. Majda was so accommodating from the moment we checked in - offering us cake and tea as well as cooking up a wonderful breakfast each morning. Mostar, itself is a great little city to spend a few days. Also, you have to stay long enough to take part in Bata's crazy tour. Go to Mostar and stay here!!

Cambie Hostel - Gastown, Vancouver, Canada

8th Dec 2010

I was impressed with the size of the beds in the 5 bed dorm that I stayed in - they were comfortable and the equivalent of a double bed even tho they were bunks still. The bar downstairs is one of best places in the city for cheap drinks. The hot breakfast is great deal as well. Location is good too, nearby to Gastown with a lot of options for food and drink nearby as well as being very close to a skytrain station.

It's a cozy little hostel tucked away in the mountains, perfect place for relaxing or trekking. Cool staff that like get you involved in different activities such as paintballing or the daunting XXL pizza challenge. Also, I want to give a big shout-out to Wally - the coolest hostel dog around.

Amazing!!! Looking for an authentic experience travelling through Italy, come here!!! Papi was such a gracious host (in place of his daughter Martina who is away travelling). Even though he speaks no English, we managed to communicate through broken french, bottles of wine, and lots of spaghetti (Papi's specialty). You basically are living in a house about 5 min from the beach. What more can you ask for? Also, you have to go out on the boat with Papi and jump off the cliffs! Thanks again!!!
