Easy walking distance to places in 'town'. A bit too big of a hostel->not as social wibe as smaller hostels. Wifi not the best, only worked close to the reception. I saw cleaners cleaning all the time but the people coming in from the beach brought so much sand with them...mission impossible! Relaxing hammocks close to the beach bar.

Would be nice if the a/c could be turned on during the day as well. Rooms get really hot during the days and if other people in the dorm keep the door open the cool air won'st stay in the room. Wifi working fine in the common areas. Nice refreshing fruit brekkie.

Close to the ferries. A bit noisy in the streets at night. Seems more like a staff hang out nowadays for other hostels in the 'chain'. Definitely the nicest hostel in Tallinn.

Staff was very friendly! Yummy breakfast! I booked a 3-day-Sahara tour with them thinking at least they would know English on the tour and was willing to pay a bit more than with other travel agents. On the Sahara tour our driver spoke no English and other people as well were not treating female travelers with respect. To find the hostel watch the video they link you or remember Cafe de France :)

The worst hostel I've stayed at in London and I've stayed at in about 10. Staff spoke barely English. Breakfast what you'd expect, not enough mugs though . Alright for a night but woudln't stay any longer. Nice curtains for privacy in beds. Very stuffy rooms. Wifi working in common areas although at reception said it to work everywhere.

Thank you for your review. Our hostels offers a range of different sized dormitories, suitable for the different guests we accommodate. Some rooms may seem a little overcrowded, but it is not the case with all our rooms. We acknowledge that at times our Wi-Fi slows down, which is why we are in the process of changing our service provider. We hope to see you back sometime soon and enjoy our new improvements :). Kind regards, Smart Hostels Team.

My favorite hostel in SA: best showers at least with good water pressure. Friendly people at reception (and others working trying to come up with things to do). Right on the beach. Also met some cool other travelers! Breakfast would be awesome as grocery store a bit far away... If really allergic to dogs prob better stay elsewhere as there are some dogs around (definitely not in the rooms though).

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!

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!

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

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!

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.

I prefer not to have ensuite bathrooms... Luckily this place also had some bathrooms outside the rooms so that people coming in a little later weren't bothering the ones already asleep. Nice kitchen!

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.
