Nice hostel with bike rental possibilities. The dorm was pretty big for all the stuff that people were traveling with, and no bunk beds plus big beds, yay :) The receptionist was not always there, but there was a phone line that you could call them if needed. I found it that I might be bothering them so didn't really see them much. The owner's son was helpful though!

Nice roof top terrace to relax! Yummy brekky! Stayed there twice...Perfect location to get to places. Helpful staff! Wifi worked in rooms. Some other guests didn't seem to know how to flush the toilet but that's not the hostels fault!

Kitchen with good facilities, nice to have a few cheeky drinks while cooking. A lot of Erasmus students staying there while we were there but they were really nice and quite considerate when returning from a night out. Good location to walk around Alicante and catch trains to go explore surrounding area as well. Manager was really helpful with info on what to do in Alicante! Would stay again if ever in Alicante!

Have stayed here before and liked it, forgot to read the reviews this time...ALLERGIC people beware of the mice in the rooms!!!!!Woke up first night and thought why it was hard for me to breath, then started hearing the scratching noise and saw one mouse. Someone had some cheese left in the luggage... Location is perfect easy access to most places and the rooms were big compared to some other London hostels. Comfy duvets!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi, Thankyou for taking your time to leave us this review, we really appreciate them. Apologies for your little visitor, we do have an issue as we live near a river and London is a very old city. We ask all our guests to adhere to house rules so we can control the issue and we have a company who comes and checks on weekly basis. They like cheese so its advisable not to keep this in rooms. Safe & happy travels St Chris team, Village

Probably the best hostel in Central America: good common areas which is good meeting other travelers, kitchen where you can actually cook, easygoing staff let us check in right after our beds were cleaned. And I didn't mind the happy hour in the bar downstairs :)

Nice pancake brekky. Staff was really helpful although a little outdated (bus station going to Montezuma had changed from Coca cola station). Nice common areas. In the dorms it smelled a bit funny. Probably not the best place for allergic people as some pets in the hostel.

The staff wasn't the friendliest and didn't speak much English. Prefered another Fresh closer to the center...

Had a nice stay: perfect location to explore London. Very small showers but you can expect that for the money you pay for this! I think the best value for money hostel in London. despite it being renovated (the bar) managed to serve us well :) Friendly staff!

I really enjoyed my stay at Jimmy Jumps. The staff was really friendly and knowledgeable. Being there in the winter might have been a bad choice but it was nice and warm inside and it was easy walking distance to places to visit in Vilnius. I have stayed in quite a few hostels and am really of the opinion that the Baltic countries have the best value for money, this one being one of the top 3 in the Baltic countries. Keep up the good work!

Sant Jordi Gracia

Barcelona, Spain

So far my favorite hostel in Bcn: the best location, good facilities(kitchen, terraces) except for the bathrooms. Individual lockers good to leave stuff to and not bring them to the city for the pickpockets to steal. I was not fan of the pubcrawls: Gracia is a perfect location to wander to some local bars and not head to the more touristy areas by the beach.


Paraiso Travellers Hostel

I wish they would've had kitchen...nice bar close by though to get manchego sandwich. The first night night guy was friendly, the second night, not so nice. A/C would've been nice in the summer, the fan was not enough in the small room. Liked the terrace!

Had a lot of fun! A really nice hostel for a solo backpacker to be staying at: they had activities organised every night and the common areas are also nice so it was easy to socialise with people. The breakfast was nice! More room in the dorms than some other hostels, the locker under the bed was a big help so there was not people's stuff lying on the floor. Luckily didn't have to change rooms between the two nights I stayed there eventhough they first told me to..Apparently very popular hostel

it was only two of us staying there so it was nice since there was only one bathroom. It was quite hot with no AC, just fans in the dorm room. David made his way trying to come up with things to do, watch movies for example. Nice place, I just think people were more likely to stay in bungalows in Ko Phangan...
