Dover Castle Hostel and Bar

hostel was kept clean and is in a great location. bar on ground floor seemed to be busy every night. luckily i was on top floor. however was kept awake one of the nights by a member of staff who was staying in the room with a girl and thought it ok to talk in the dorm at 04:30 am on a wednesday. no thank you i would expect better behaviour from someone who works at the hostel. there is a common area/kitchen to talk to people

decent hostel. staff were hit and miss but was kept very clean and decent social area. location is out of town which is a mixed blessing. only annoyance is walking through highways to get to centre.

decent hostel and excellent staff who helped us with a flat car battery! so thanks again. in a decent location situated just outside old town (2 minute walk) which suited us as we had a car and could park outside for free. our double room was huge and clean however kitchen was dirty. having said that there were some renovations happening. thanks again

hostel is located in asakusa which has great places to eat and some sightseeing but is about 25 mins away from inner tokyo. a good bonus point is that there is a direct train to/from haneda airport. the computers at the hostel are actually decent. moreover the beds were super comfortable and showers were great staff were very helpful and helped us with any queries we needed, topped off by a swanky bar downstairs with decent prices. however it could do with a few extra seats. thanks nui hostel

the hostel staff were very friendly and helpful for which i am grateful, so thank you check inn staff! hostel is well located for sightseeing but maybe not for nightlife, however transport (by british standards) is very cheap in hong kong. the lounge is good for meeting other travelers and the computers provided are actually decent which is a huge bonus! only negative i can think of is the bunk ladders were a bit tricky to get up or down. however this would not put me off from staying again

decent hotel and great value for money; our room was spacious and clean. although the double bed did consist of two single beds in a base. i'm not sure if this is a popular thing in hungary as we had this problem elsewhere. hotel is in a good location if you have an early morning flight or prefer something closer to the airport. the bus stop is about a two minute walk + 20 minute bus ride

positives - good location, helpful staff and clean negatives - booked a double room. i do not believe two single mattresses in a base+ two single duvets equates to buying a double bed. it shouldn't. overall a decent hostel, just a shame about the bed.

Fernloft KL @ Chinatown

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
71%

hostel was in a decent location. right in the centre of chinatown. just let down by a few small things such as the communal bathrooms weren't well looked after. no hooks or anything in showers to hang your stuff up. and the general atmosphere at the time; everyone there just seemed to be doing their own thing. lastly the morning shift worker gave us overly complicated directions for onward travel and sent us the wrong way which was a bit annoying. all in all it's a decent hostel worth the price

good hostel although it seemed more like a bar / restaurant downstairs with thirty somethings rather than a hostel. upstairs was a little different with a sociable kitchen area and the rooms / showers were decent.

views from the room are superb. the lady who runs thje hostel is very nice, she speaks no english so be aware. but hey you are in bolivia so i think people should stop seeing this as a negative point. even with my very basic understanding of spanish she was very helpful andf cooked up some good meals. as for the poster below complaning about the stairs.. well for any accommodation on the island you will have to walk up the stairs so quit complaning. only negative was no working shower! which meant a n

dorm was fine no complaints. the common area is ok but not that great for meeting other guests. also on one day no one turned up to work at the bar for 4 hours so we couldnĀ“t get a drink which was annoying. bar is also way overpriced. staff could be more helpful to customers. granted i was let off for an extremely late check out the manager was nice. hostel is well located etcetc

Vertigo Centre

Marseille, France

psssh only hostel in marseille really so for cheap opens you have no choice, though it was still expensive. breakfast was really expensive considering the food you get (€5 for croissant, bread juice and hot drink). all of which is a shame because marseille is a beautiful city.

bit pricey for morocco but when you go in you'll see it has it's value for money. the place is like a palace hidden away somehow in the very heart of marrakech. terrace on roof is very nice too.


Vertigo Centre

Marseille, France

overpriced and not much to do 5 euro for a standard breakfast, 2 euro for an orange juice? at a youth hostel. i think not. most of the staff appeared to be relatively conceited, which is not pleasant in a youth hostel; nor, more importantly adept in the lovely city of Marseille. what a shame.
