I was very disappointed in my stay here - I ended up switching to Livingstone Backpackers, which was lovely. Although the rooms at Jollyboys were beautiful, and the common room nice as well, the staff was so unpleasant and unhelpful that I didn't want to stay. Speaking to others at the hostel proved that many felt the same way. Also, I could not connect to wifi as only a select number can connect at any given time. I'd heard Jollyboys was slipping, guess it's true!
Hands down, one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The staff are amazing, the dinners are fabulous, and it really felt like home. Stay here!! (Brenna)
The staff was very friendly and the food amazing. Although it is a bit out of town, the bus runs frequently enough that it is easy to get into Innsbruck.
One of very few hostels in Zurich, so I didn't expect much. I stayed in this hostel in 2006 and again in 2014, and absolutely nothing had changed. Not sure if this is a good thing.
I've stayed in hundreds of hostels and this is definitely one of the best. The staff was incredibly friendly, and everything about this hostel impressed me: spotless bathrooms, hot showers, fast wifi, comfortable beds, great breakfast, relaxed atmosphere. As a solo traveller, I met tons of people. I will absolutely stay here again, and will recommend it to everyone going to Berlin. This review may sound fake, but no, I honestly really, really loved the place. Stay here!
Great location - it was very easy to get to all the major sites of Rome. The bar was packed at night but I didn't hear any noise at all when I was in my room. I would stay here again!
While the location is great, the staff was incredibly indifferent toward me, in fact often making me feel as though I wasn't welcome or that I was being a burden with my questions or concerns. The wifi didn't work at all for the three days that I was there, and on my last morning I woke up with hundreds of bites that I am praying were sand flies and not bed bugs. There are much better places to stay in Rio!!
The staff here were SO lovely and helpful - they let me leave my bag there for a week and welcomed me with open arms when I returned. I would definitely stay here again! Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, fast wifi and the best caipirinhas I had in Rio. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
I loved this hostel! It was so clean and comfortable. The staff were also very friendly. It was great to stay in a quiet place like this compared to some of the other bigger, louder hostels on the island!
I loved this hostel! The staff was so friendly and it was a great place to relax after a day in the sun. Very fast wifi and good breakfast, plus the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. I'd stay here again!
Really great hostel - excellent breakfast, fast wifi, and incredibly helpful and kind staff. I wish I could have stayed longer. I'd definitely recommend staying at this hostel!
The location was perfect - directly across from the bus station for easy access to both the falls and Brazil. The staff was also very lovely, and gave me lots of information about the area!
I really enjoyed my stay at Milhouse - great parties but really quiet and clean rooms. The security was excellent and the staff were extremely helpful. I would definitely stay at Milhouse again!
Great location and great staff, but this isn't really a place to go to party or meet people. The wifi was intermittent, and I often didn't have a hot shower in the morning, but overall I had a nice experience at the hostel.
Definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed - wonderful staff and great communal activities! Every night there was either a dinner or a free class of some kind (Spanish or mate, for example) and it made it so easy to meet people. The wifi wasn't great, but free laundry and a guarantee of a hot shower made up for it. Thank you for such a lovely stay - you made Mendoza a highlight of South America for me!
The staff was really great, but other than that I found this to be a very average hostel. It was a bit farther away from some of the cooler areas of town, and there was little to no atmosphere for the two days I was there.
I really loved the decor and the atmosphere of the place! The location was especially great - very close by foot to all the major areas of town. My stay here was relaxed and comfortable, and the kitchen and bathrooms were spotless. My only complaint is that the wifi was extremely slow...
This hostel seemed really great; I say "seemed" because I booked with them through Hostelworld, but, when I arrived, I was told that they had overbooked, despite confirming. I had to move to another hostel in town. Obviously this was not ideal, but the staff was very apologetic and helped me in every way, including providing me with a great breakfast and hot shower. I would have really liked to have stayed here as it looked excellent. My advice? Confirm and confirm AGAIN that you are booked in!
The six-bed ensuite dorm was very crowded, with very small bunks - I couldn't sit up in bed and there wasn't room for anyone to unpack/go through their bags. In three days there I never once had a hot shower, either. The atmosphere is nice and the staff is really helpful, but I think there could be a few improvements made.
While there were some benefits to this hostel - great bathrooms and location - I wouldn't stay here again. The staff was incredibly rude to me whenever I had a question, to the point of completely ignoring my problem. There is also no common room, and, while the bar is fun, you may not want to be there all the time. I was sitting quietly in the back courtyard on my computer after the bar closed and I was told very sternly that I had to either go to a club or go to bed...!! Loki is much better!
I would definitely stay at this hostel again, if only for the amazing and friendly staff. I felt so at home and so comfortable - you really feel like one of the family! The rooftop bar is one of the best places in the city to meet people, see the volcano erupt, and drink cheap beer. Thank you for an incredible week!
A very standard hostel, but the staff were really friendly and helpful. I didn't like that there were no locks on the dorm rooms and that the lockers were outside the rooms. Unfortunately I got bedbug bites all down my arms and back, so I can't say that I would stay here again.
Great hostel! I would definitely stay here again on any future trips to Tokyo.
We loved our time in Varna! The staff was incredible; they made our stay relaxing, easy, and fun. I would definitely recommend this hostel.
We had a lovely time in Brasov. The hostel was great and so much fun at night. Thanks for everything!
I wish there was a 110% option for staff!
I have stayed in hostels in over 40 countries and this was by far the worst hostel I have stayed in. It was extremely dirty (the toilets overflowed every day), the showers were always too hot or too cold, and it was extremely loud. I would never stay there again and I would not recommend this hostel.
Definitely one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The hostel dinners were amazing!
Friendly Fun Franks is definitely one of the best party hostels I´ve stayed at, if not THE best. I didn´t get any sleep at all, and I mean that in the best way. Perfect location, terrific bar and especially a great staff. Many thanks to the awesome Casper who not only is great to party with but who also gave me the courage to shoot an AK-47. Sam and Casper I would come back to Riga just to hear you perform again! Thanks for a great hostel... -Brenna from Canada
