That was my last stop in Sri Lanka and I loved the hostel. Beds are very comfortable, there is a locker in the room, the showers are great and clean. Great to have some AC. The staff is always available and helpful. Like the free cold water too. Lounge is great to meet people. It is in an area with great restaurants and easy to travel around with a tuk-tuk. Wi-fi is reliable. Would definitely stay there again.
Staff is beyond great. Location is good. Granada is small. Everything can be explored on foot. Breakfast is ok. Atmosphere is great. Chill lounge and common areas are perfect to meet the other travelers. Cheap option for dinner in the hostel too. Very clean. Only small problem is the wi-fi, which is often on and off, and not working well in the rooms. But it works well in the common areas. So I would definitely visit again.
Well located in the medina. The staff was nice enough to wait for me at night, even if I was 1,5 hour late because of the train. Limited amount of bathrooms, but never had a problem getting one that was free. Breakfast was good.
Very good breakfast. Very good location. A little weird that there is a double bed in a four-bed dorm. There is also only one key per dorm, so if someone leaves with it, might be difficult to get in the room. All in all, it's a good place to stay. They offered us breakfast when we got there early in the morning, even if the booking was effective only for later that day. They left us food for our trip on an early bus too.
Very good place. The staff is very nice and helpful. Location is good, even if it might be confusing to find it the first time. The place is lovely. I recommend it.
For the price, this is a reasonnable place to stay. Location was good for me. Everything is accessible on foot. Beds are not totally the best but they are good enough. Had to put average for the staff because of the night guy. I arrived early because I took a bus from Sarajevo. He woke up just to tell me to come back at noon and went back to sleep. I agree with the check-in time, but I would have appreciated a shower, which I asked for but was denied the access to. The girl was very nice though.
This is a vrey good hostel. Staff is way nicer than you can expect. They are very helpful, always smiling. I asked so many questions and they never made me feel like I was asking too much. Beds are very comfortable, lockers are big enough, there is good wi-fi and location is perfect to get anywhere on foot. Perfect place to stay.
Very nice location. True that it is exhausting to get all the way up, though. Beds are comfortable, owner is very nice, breakfast is good. Only one shower would work though and we were not allowed to use the bathroom in the afternoon because it just had been cleaned... All in all, a good place for the price. Try the restaurant Las Velas, not too far. Worth every penny.
Only spent one night in Red Llama, but everything was perfect. My flight was delayed five hours, but they still picked me up with the shuttle. Staff was very nice and helpful. Location was ideal for me. Everything was clean. Atmosphere was fine. Breakfast was a little simple but was free. Totally recommend it.
Very nice hostel. Very clean. Location was good for me, since it was away a little bit from the bars, but walking distance from everything. True the school next door is noisy for the late sleepers. No lockers, but a safe in the room. So you can't lock all your stuff. Just small valuables. Atmosphere so so, since the only common area is the dining room. Staff is sometimes rude (especially the asian man). Breakfast should be include in the expensive price of the room. Great breakfast though.
Very good hostel. Very good location. Perfect in a back street, so you're close to the action but don't hear the noise of the busy street. Staff is mostly nice and helpful, breakfast is totally awesome, with a nice view on the terrace. Would stay there again.
Very well located. Easy to walk to the Waterfront. They didn't give me a lot of information unless I asked for it though. Clean place. Very good breakfast. Wi-fi was not always working well but there was a way to get online anyway. Calm place.
I just stayed one night. Free dinner and free beers were nice. Was happy about the free parking too. The mattress wasn't that comfortable. But other than that, nothing to complain about.
This hostel looks old but it is just fine from most points of view. Stayed in two different rooms. One was fine. The mattress in the other one needed to be replaced. Other than that, free wi-fi was convenient. Free pancakes were also good.
I stayed for only one night, so I didn't get to appreciate the character. Location is perfect, close to every tourist attractions and points of interest. The beds are really small, but at least comfortable. And they don't make noise. But small. The staff is not over dynamic, but can at least answer questions. Breakfast leaves you with lot of choices. Everything is basically ok.
Nice location. The BBQ was very good too. Good place to meet people. It's a little annoying that we need to ring each time we need to go out. Not true that the laundry is ready the same day. Not the right price for the trip to Uruguay on the sign on the desk. The bathrooms are made in a way they get messy really fast.
Very nice staff. Excellent location. Very good breakfast. Excellent place to meet other travelers. Water was a little cold in the shower. The doors of the rooms don't lock, but there are lockers. Had fun with the billard and ping pong tables.
I haven't been in other hostels in Sao Paulo but I'm sure this one is by far the best you can find. The staff is very friendly, helpful and they know exactly what travelers are searching for. Beds are comfy, the place is clean and secure. Great place to meet other travelers also. They can suggests activities for every day or every night. The breakfast a little simple, but who can complain about free food?
Very good hostel with very, very helpfull staff. One key per room is not enough. I was always having trouble getting in my room because the key was missing. Wi-fi is slow and hard to catch away from reception. Breakfast is good. Dinner in the hostel is convenient. Location is perfect. Great place to meet people.
In time, this will probably be a great hostel. But they weren't totally ready to welcome guests. No hot water on one day, wi-fi not working well, lots of noise in the morning, needs curtains in the rooms. It is far from the main attractions, except Corcovado. Most of the tours will pick you up only in Copacabana. Staff was nice but it was sometimes complicated to interact. On key per room is not enough. Security is good. Breakfast is good. Character was getting better every day.
Very good hostel that makes you feel just like at home. The only complaint is the mattresses that are not that comfortable, For the rest, staff is very likable, breakfast is good, location is perfect. I will stay there again if I go back to Lisbon.
Another nice hostel in Lisbon. Clean, safe, with great staff. Safe in the locker for valuables. Fast wi-fi. Beds made of wood so they don't make noise. Free breakfast is excellent. Atmosphere very good. Close to everything. The only thing is, when it's very hot outside, leaving the windows open will bring a lot of noise since the hostel is located near one of the main squares.
This is really a party hostel. If you don't want to party, bring earplugs. Location is perfect, even if I had trouble with the directions left on hostelworld. The staff is helpful, even if one of the guys hardly speaks english. For some reason everybody seemed to have to change room at some point, which is weird and pointless sometimes. Reception for wi-fi is uneven in the rooms.
Very good hostel. All the staff members are nice and have a great personnality. They are helpful as well. Great place to meet people. Close to everything. Always clean. Breakfast is good. Internet is fast enough. Lockers in the room. Will stay there again.
This is a big hostel with the possibility of having a lot or roomates, but there is no real atmosphere to the place yet. Security and cleanliness are good. It's a brand new hostel but one toilet was already broken in the men's bathroom. And it wasn't fixed for the whole time I was there. One toilet for everybody is not enough. Far from the center. Need to take the bus. Directions left on here are not clear enough to find the place. Staff could look like they enjoy their job more. Smile!
Very good hostel. Small but perfect for calm or meeting other people. Lisa and Trevor make you feel like at home. Beds are comfy, breakfast is good, location cannot be better. Very clean. One of the best places I've stayed in more than 60 different hostels around the world. Had lot of fun. Would go back there anytime. Way better than those big party hostels.
Nice little hostel, right in the middle of the central place. Good place to start the visit of the city. Near everything. Couldn't expect more. Friendly staff.
Very good hostel with a location within a walking distance from everything. The staff is so nice and the hostel has a very personnal feel to it. The hostel is very clean, the beds comfy and the living room big enough. The only thing to fix might be the light in the shower, that lights with movements but it turns itself off every five seconds... Would go there again. I already recommended it to people I met in the other Baltic countries.
Location is walking distance from everywhere. The beds are comfortable. Security is good. The staff looked a little bit grumpy, except for the girl, who was smiling and very helpful. Didn't appreciate to find out I was sharing a room with a family of three underaged teenagers and their father. Not what an hostel is to me. But everything else was good.
Everything was very convenient. The staff was helpful and had an answer to each and every question I had. The location is perfect to visit the main sites and there is a lot of cheap restaurants around. Loved the roof with the view on the Parthenon. Gave me the occasion to meet a lot of great people. I never wanted to go to bed because of that view. The showers seemed a little bit broken though on the 3rd floor and the A/C was leaking on the floor in our room. Other than that, liked every second.
Very good breakfast. Well located. Dorms have a lot of beds with people who seem to have been there for ages. Not exactly what you expect from backpackers. Bathrooms are small also and it might be hard to have access to it in the morning. But I enjoyed my stay at Jordan Tower...
The staff is very, very, very nice. The location is perfect to walk to Petra. Everything is very convenient even if the wi-fi is slow and you get a lot of noise from the street if you stay in the dorm. I would stay there again.
Could be a little hard to find. Situated in Silon, close to the BTS and metro station. It's a hotel, not an hostel, so it could be hard to meet people. For some reason, the staff called me one hour before check-out to make sure I would leave...
Nicest staff in the world. A little expansive, but rooms are clean, wi-fi is fast, beds comfortable. Location perfect to go anywhere.
Location is good to and from the airport. Staff very nice but not too talkative if you don't ask a lot of questions. They should give a map of the city to the guests. They have some, but they keep them behind the desk. Rooms and bathrooms were clean.
Nice hostel. Located in a walking distance from everything in town. Restaurant, pool, big room with lockers under the beds... My main complaint is the staff, that is not very helpful. They don't really try to help when you ask question. They don't have a map of the city to point places for you, if you need to. They will not go out of their way to try to help you understand their sometimes bad english... Other than that, I was very happy with my stay.
The restaurant on the roof was very convenient, even if I seemed to wake-up the staff everytime I went to eat. The room was perfect, with air con, fan, shower and TV. The wi-fi didn't always work properly. Free pick-up and booking services appreciated.
The only bad things I have to say is that the power seemed to give up for some random reasons, sometimes. Not convenient when you are in the shower. And the « window » for the bathroom was replaced by a cardboard smaller than the actual hole left by the missing window... Other than that, good location, restaurant and booking services are useful.
Very nice place to stay. The staff is so nice and always ready to answer any qestion. Nice rooms also. The only thing it's missing is hooks in the bathroom to hang some stuff. Very convenient also to be able to book tours and buses directly at the hostel, even if the price is higher than in travel agencies. Same thing for the airport pick-up.
The room itself is fine. The location too. But it's not a hostel for backpackers. There is no real common room. Not a good place to meet people. The only dryer in the « laundry room » doesn't work properly. The clothes are still wet after 2 hours even with a limited amount of clothes in it. No real atmosphere. I would book in a guesthouse next time.
Even if there is not a lot to do in Nagano, that is a very nice guesthouse. I found an answer to every question I had, had great recommandations for food, had great time with the other guests in the common room. I thought the bed was comfortable also in that «traditionnal» house. I would fo there again for sure... Very clean also.
The staff didn't have a lot of time for check-in because they were busy working at the bar. The rooms are big and the beds comfortable. There is just a small dining room and no living room to hang. Not a really good place to meet people, but fairly well located to visit the city, since it's in Gion. I would prefer staying near the train station though, since it's easier to get on a bus, a JR Train or the subway from there.
Staff excellent. Really small hostel. Good to meet people. There is nothing to do at the hostel itself though. Perfect for a couple of days. Easy to go to Shin-Osaka station or Osaka station.
Very nice hostel in Kyoto. The staff is very friendly, The place is easy to reach from the train station. The beds are comfortable. Good place to meet people. I recommend staying there more than another hostel that I stayed in in Kyoto... even if the other hostel had better ratings.
Very nice experience. The owner is so friendly. The place is hard to find if you don't bring a map with you, because the name of the street is not written anywhere. Even my taxi driver didn't know how to get there. But once you know, the location is perfect. Nice for a short stay in Himeji.
Location is perfect to see the memorial and the museum. The staff hardly understood english. I booked in a 10 beds dorm, as it's the only option, but I ended up in a 15 or more beds dorm. I don't mind a lot of people, but that's not what I had reserved. The place is ok for one night, but it doesn't have a lot of character...
The rooms are very small, but other than that, everything is perfect. It's close to the JR loop line. Easy to get everywhere. The staff finds answers to every question... and is friendly. Liked my stay there.
Nice location. Staff really helpful. Very handy to have the restaurant at the front. The beds are not very comfortable in the dorms, though. The only thing that is missing is the possibility to print directly at the hostel. The people who shut the lights in the DVD should also see if there is somebody in there before...
One of the best, if not the best, hostels I stayed in in China. Really beautiful rooms, comfortable beds, nice bathroom. The staff was always happy to help and gave really good tips. Really good place to meet people as well.
Location near the train station was key for me, since I was going to the Yellow Mountains from the train station. Liked the bed and the lockers. The wi-fi was really slow, though. It's a really big place too, but the atmosphere was just average.
Really nice hostel. Location is perfect. Wi-fi on every floor is convenient. The staff is very helpful. Liked the bar on the roof and the restaurant on the first floor.
Nice place to stay in Hong Kong since it's near everything (shops, metro, visa office). The staff is nice if you get to know them. Nie to have free wi-fi and a common room. It lacked a little cleanliness in the bathroom though. Other than that, it's what I expected in Hong Kong. Good place to meet people.
Very good hostel. Better thant the other one I was in in Sydney. The staff is very nice. Very helpful. Everything is clean. Free wi-fi very handy. Sink and lockers in the room are un must. Very happy with my choice of staying there.
The location is good if you want to go out in King Cross. Otherwise, it's a little out of the way. The room and the bathroom felt really small. The bathroom wasn't really clean, with the showers leaking most of the time. Security was good. The staff was hard to find when I needed to do my check-out in the morning. I stayed in another hostel in Sydney after this one and liked the other one better.
I only stayed one night but it was a good place for the time I stayed.
Beds were comfortable.
Breakfast is very good. Location is good to go to the beach, but further if you want to go in town every day. Might have found a couple of bugs in the rooms. Staff is very nice also. Thanks to Sabrina for everything.
They don't take credit cards. It's not that clean, especially the bathrooms. I woke up and my eyes were swollen from the dirt in the room. I tried to buy 200 MB of internet like it says you can on the writing on the wall. But for the same price, I only got 40 MB because I was checking-out. Free breakfast is only on week days. It's far from everything. I wouldn't book there again.
Great character, nice staff. DO NOT buy wireless internet time unless you really need it. It is so slow... It is better with the computers they provide, but it is more expansive. They moved me in a room with less people, which was great, but I booked a room with a bathroom and ended up in the common bathrooms. One toilet had no light bulb for the three days I stayed. Showers could have been cleaner, like the hostel itself.
Very nice hostel with everything you need. Well located. Beds are comfortable and they don't make any noise. Great bathroom, except our toilet was leaking and it didn't seem like they were going to fix it. Free internet is very nice, quiz night was fun, helpful staff, individual lights for the beds... Would stay there again.
Very helpful staff. Nice hostel to meet people. The beds make a lot of noise, though. The page on Hostelworld listed free internet access, but there was nothing free about the internet there, except for two websites. It's a little expansive for what it is, but it's a nice place to stay. Very well located.
Very nice hostel. Free internet is nice, but it would be better with wi-fi, of course. The fact that they close the reception area at 10 pm might be annoying as well. Staff very helpful and patient. Very well located. Very clean.
Location is excellent. Staff was nice. But there was nobody there other than me. Should have trash cans in the rooms. No lockers. Cleanliness wasn't the best.
Really nice place, but like I read in the comments, most of the people staying there are staying for a long time. A little far from the city center, but easy to get there by bus. Too bad the kitchen is locked down around 10:30.
Comfortable beds, very secure. Nice to have bathroom in the room and a light with every bed. Staff was ok. Did no think the hostel had a lot of character.
Don't get fooled by your first impression... if your first impression is bad. The rooms are not that big, but not too small. The staff is very, very nice, always smiling and ready to help. The cleaning lady is also very nice and likes to chat to give advices. Free breakfast is very good. Same for the occasio, nnal free dinner. Met a lot of nice people. Good hostel for social life with the big kitchen and the common room. Would definitely stay there again.
Well situated, with nice staff. The free breakfast is simple. For one night, this place is ok, but I wouldn't stay longer. I had to cross another room to get to my room and I could hear the bar when I went to sleep. The showers are also in a separate building, which is not very pratical. Everything is small.
The comments you read are pretty acurate. The note is accurate also. VERY small rooms. Small beds also. Had to sleep in diagonal. The bathroom is ok but hard to get hot water. Everything costs a lot. 2 pounds pour the locker. 5 pounds for a towel... when you get one for 1 euro everywhere else. Will try to stay somewhere else next time. You get what you pay for. Breakfast is cheap. Just toasts and cereals. Good location though.
Never seen a bathroom that big and that nice in an hostel. very well located. Feels just like an hotel. Big lockers. Very clean. Nice to have a restaurant in there. The only thing is that it is a big hostel, so it loses a little character and make it more difficult to meet people.
If I had to do it again, I would book in a smaller hostel. Wombat's a large hostel, so it's not as friendly as it could be. Too much school groups for my taste, even if you have to expect it from an hostel like that one. Wi-Fi was slow, laundry machine was broken and it took a long time to repare it. Location is nice, breakfast was too. Nice bar. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms are clean. Prefered the Wombats in Berlin.
If I could give the staff a note of 200 %, I would. Andi's breakfasts are awesome. Met nice people. Beds were comfortable. Would stay there again for sure. They only gave me good advices.
The rooms are not that big, and sometimes, it was hot in there, but that doesn't really matters. Staff is very friendly, common area is great. Liked the free wifi, free breakfast, free baby-foot table. Location is good to get to the BART, subway or cable car and info is provided as how to get to the main attractions. Liked every restaurant the staff recommended.
Really nice place. Met nice people. Staff helps a lot. Cheap breakfast. Cheap internet. Nothing bad to say. I\'d stay there again.
It's not as far out of the was as some people have mentionned. I actually liked the location. It's a large hostel, not very personnal. I liked to have the bathroom in the room. Nice to have the breakfeast near, even though it's a little expensive for what it is. Beds are ok. Staff is not smiling a lot, but is helpfull. I would stay there again if I was back in Munich, but I might try to find a smaller hostel, to avoid schools groups.
Good hostel. The staff is very nice, even though one of them is weird. The only thing is that you have only one bathroom for 16 guests on the last floor. But for the rest, you can always have access to the internet and the food is very good.
The staff is very nice. They fixed everything as soon as it was broken. The only thing is, since it is a small hostel, you can hear people in the living room from your room. But they are asked to keep quiet starting at 11... Well, it's an hostel. You have to forgive them for that. Still one of the best I have been to yet.
Very hot in the summer. Be prepared to sweat
