We loved staying at this beautiful hostel. Enough social space to meet other travelers but also quiet so you get a good rest. It felt more like a cosy home away from home than your regular hostel. Also has helpful staff, very hot showers, lots of space, all the kitchen supplies you need and a decent breakfast (hot drinks, cereal, toast, jam, cheese, fruit). A very good deal in a fun part of this funky city. Would gladly stay here again.

One of the bathrooms could be divided by a wall to separate the toilet and showers to reduce the frustration for people waiting to use them. Also would be good to be able to use the stove but otherwise all was great!

The social environment of the hostel is great (while still allowing us to get a good night's sleep) and the staff were really friendly and helpful. It was kept nice and clean, the kitchen has all the utensils you could need and enough space and the dining areas are a good size. Enough toilets/bathrooms for the amount of guests, comfortable rooms and beds and a homely feel. I highly recommend this hostel and the great outdoor activities you can book through reception.

I stayed in a private room which was clean and comfortable with a nice view out the back of the hostel to the mountains. Jani who runs the hostel is possibly the best hostel host ever! The friendliest, most bubbly and helpful host I've come across. The kitchen is good, kept clean and has all the utensils you need. Also plenty of fridge space and free locally grown vegetables for guests to share, which was a really nice touch.

Bathrooms in dorms were kept clean but not floors in dorms or hallways. Staff were helpful.

The staff were fantastic, very welcoming and helpful. Loved the spacious dorm room and rooftop bar. Great location near some of the most amazing sights in Istanbul and super close to public transport, bars and restaurants. No complaints at all, this is a great hostel and I´d gladly stay here again.

This is a beautiful, modern, well equipped hostel with a great breakfast and friendly staff. Brilliant location tops it off, had a really great time here. The only tiny downfall was the room I was in got a bit warm and stuffy in the morning when the sun would shine in so maybe a fan would help. All in all, one of my favourite hostels ever :)

This is a great hostel, clean, well run with friendly helpful staff. It has a great vibe, a social place, but relaxed without that forced 'we're a party hostel' feel. Its really easy to meet other travelers here and share stories over a few drinks and some great music but still peaceful enough to have a good night's sleep (with earplugs). I highly recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Buenos Aires.

This is a great hostel in the heart of the backpacker area of HCMC. The dorms are nice and clean, ours had a little outdoor area/balcony with table and seats, 2 showers and toilets for an 8 bed dorm which is great. Helpful staff, breakfast included and they book tours too at good rates. Highly recommended.

For the price, this hostel is well worth the money. The beds & pillows are comfortable, it's clean and in a good location. There are big lockers under the beds big enough for most backpacks and our room had a nice little balcony too. I'd gladly stay here again.

A great hostel, clean and in a good location. Friendly staff. Despite the very small 4 bed girls dorm, I enjoyed my stay, it wasn't the most sociable hostel I've stayed in, but comfortable and friendly so a good place to get a solid sleep! I'd gladly stay here again.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel, the location is in the heart of Montmartre, and the metro just round the corner, supermarket down the road. It was clean and the staff were all nice and helpful. My dorm was big and had its own bathroom, also tables and chairs. Also great to have a good breakfast in the morning, especially enjoyed the croissants : ) Would definitely stay here again. All round a great hostel.

Our room was spacious but very dusty. Also a bit noisy late at night, we could here someone talking on their phone and the washing machine running. All in all we had a pleasant stay though, it was only a short bus trip into the city centre and had all the facilities we needed.

We had a great stay at Alice in Wonderland. A beautiful place, big, clean rooms, great breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff. Also good location and very secure. Only problem was that we had cold showers but not sure that staff were aware, someone staying there may have changed the water setting, staff were very apologetic. Other than that I highly recommend this hostel\B&B. I�d definitely stay here again.

We loved our stay at One Step. Very clean and spacious. Only downfall was that it as noisy in the morning when people got up to have breakfast. But everything else made up for that, especially the rooftop terrace. A beautiful spot to hang out! Friedrich was really helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again!
