If you are looking for a hip place where they make you espresso in a cosy common area, provide all imaginable services and a magnetic key handed to you by smooth-talking oh-so-pretty urbanites in Belgrade or Berlin, this is not for you. It's an old-fashioned small town hostel affiliated with Hostelling International. Expect to have to fight for uninterested staff to restart the Wi-Fi router and to spend the night in a very basic dorm. But do say hi to the cute brunette for me.

A nice little hostel just outside the city center, easily accessible on foot. It takes just 15 minutes to walk there. Nice clean dorms with reasonably comfortable beds, helpful staff, a garden in the backyard, two friendly dogs inside and two very young kittens outside. This is a good place for those who appreciate a well-run hostel, as long as they don't mind a short walk to get to town.

This is a very nice hostel. Being in the heart of Kreuzberg makes for a more interesting experience than in more touristy neighbourhoods, with vibrant nightlife. The facilities are more basic than elsewhere but the staff is very helpful, making good coffee in the morning and helping you to find what you are looking for in Berlin. A clean, fun hostel where you can meet new people without dealing with the noise of "party hostels". Highly recommended.

Nice place to stay in, but I am not entirely convinced that it deserves to top the ratings of hostels in a large city such as London. This hostel's atmosphere is so quiet that it attracted a senior who couldn't even tolerate the fact that people who check in late will come in and out of the room... and go to the bathroom before going to bed.

Great hostel with everything you can ask for, from a vast common area and breakfast/bar area to the power plugs and lights above each bed. Perfect location near the central train station and very close to the old town. Very secure with security staff near the entrance at night and lockers that work with your room's magnetic card.

Nice knowledgeable staff who have traveled before. They were very helpful and they understood my needs as a visitor. The premises were clean, located in a residential building midway between the train station and the city centre. Good hostel, although I would have liked the dorm bed to be a bit more comfortable.

Decent four-bed dorm, but sound isolation could be better, as it was easy to hear noise from the dorm right next to ours. I like having a light and power plug over my bed, which is a nice touch for travelers. The included breakfast is nothing special, without any fruits or veggies on offer. Shockingly, the guy who handles breakfast does not speak French, an abnormal thing in Montreal. Great location near the bus station and close to downtown districts.

The six-bed dorm is fine with a big shelf, two power plugs and a light for every bed. The hostel/hotel is very clean and the staff efficient. The dorm is integrated in a traditional hotel, with little hostel-like atmosphere, though. Great location, as it allows you to go anywhere in the city centre on foot in 5 minutes.

The dorm and the bathroom were very clean, the staff was very friendly and funny. The location is close enough to Alexanderplatz to make it easy to move around and find everything. The luggage room is secure enough since the staff has a key to it. Atmosphere? Beyond the fact that is it relaxed (not a noisy party hostel), I wasn't there long enough to fully enjoy and meet people. Hard to judge.

Positives: a short walk and ferry from the city centre. Quality bunk beds in clean rooms. Modern showers, including mint shower gel. Very good espresso. Staff controls access to the luggage room to make it secure. Due to the large size of the hostel, though, this is not the best place to meet new people if you travel alone.

This is a nice place. The staff helps you and tells you about the scams you should avoid when paying for tours in Cappadocia. Great cave dorms and a very cool common room where travelers can meet. You have to go outside for the bathrooms, which is fine in the summer, but I can imagine how cold it gets in autumn and winter. Nice breakfast in the morning and there is a laundry service. One of the rare hostel Wi-Fi's that work in Turkey. Haha.

This is a nice little hostel but it shows there is no competition around. The staff is friendly but some of them are unable to really help you when you are looking to find travel information. My dorm wasn't exactly the cleanest. But that may be because of one of the guests, who was really dirty...

The best here is the staff. The manager is super friendly and he helps you to go beyond typical attractions ans tourist traps. He organizes little events and an "off the beatrn path" walking tour. I highly recommend the 14-bed dorm because there is plenty of space there, with curtains for every bed. The Wi-Fi could be improved a bit and unfortunately, there is no washing machine. This hostel remains a great one.

If you are used to European-style hostels with a power plug at every bed and every imaginable service, you will not get that. But this hostel is well located in the Midtown, with access to the subway. Staff is professional and helpful. Most rooms are a bit small. Some of the rest rooms are tiny and the air is hot. But I guess this comes with the territory in New York, Still a much better deal than expensive Manhattan hotels or distance New Jersey hotels.

One of my favorite hostels in this trip. The dorms, common areas and showers are super clean, comfortable with lively colours. The location is close enough to the city center. The owner helped me to book transportation as I needed to get back to Belgrade, and he handles landry. I recommend it a lot more than the other hostel I tried in Sarajevo!

This definitely was a nice hostel, operated by a local Bosnian who cares about the people and the quality of the experience. Very friendly common area and garden. Everything is very clean. The showers add a great touch for people who appreciate comfort. Nice little breakfast in the morning. Majda answers all your questions about day trips and about getting around.

What brings people here is the atmosphere. The common rooms, especially outside, make for a great place to hang out, get to know hostellers and have a beer. The staff makes amazing breakfast in the morning (French toast and eggs). The weakness here was the air quality and humidity in the dorm downstairs. It wasn't exactly the best for me. People with asthma may have a second thought about the dorm in this place.

Good place... if you want a truly quiet hostel. The beds are big, closed on one side and have a curtain on the other side. There is no common room and no kitchen, however. Toni, whi handles the reception, is very nice and helpful but present only for check-in and on request when you send an email. You get a donut and coffee at breakfast time.

The staff is very fun and charming. In the morning, they will make turkish coffee on request so you can discover it. There are nights when they make crêpes. The location is in a slightly more upscale residential neighbourhood than others and the price for accommodation is more than fair. I loved the place because it was cosy and friendly. It was very easy to meet people and have a beer with them. I look forward to be back here for a couple of days at the end of my trip, before flying out.

I was not impressed by this hostel. The staff was not friendly, rather cold and unable to even make conversation. Vaccuum cleaning the dorms wouldn't be a bad idea. My luggage picked up chunks of dust from the floor! The shower heads are made of cheap plastic and some have been patched up with sticky tape, but it keeps falling while you shower. This place is only about location and security if you ask me.

Cinnamon Hostel, Wroclaw, Poland

5th Oct 2011

Two important shortcomings. The common room had a fire several weeks ago and instead of cleaning it up, they closed it down but it still smells fire in the corridors, despite the cinnamon scent that they put everywhere. Seriously. The reception has become the common room. The second problem is breakfast. It is bread and jam in a kitchen that has only TWO seats. Not an interesting experience at all.

View Property Reply

Hi Michel! We are finally finished with refreshing the hostel after the fire you mentioned. The hostel has new spaces, like two common rooms and a much bigger kitchen with 12-15 seats (!!!) The breakfast consists of more then just bread and jam, you have also spread cheese, ketchup, all sorts of cornflakes with milk and coffee and tea - remember that we are a hostel NOT hotel. We did not clean up the place until then because in Poland all proceeders like claiming compenstation by the insurance company take ages... But we did it finally and so I invite you once again and offer you a 30% discount this time to convince you even stronger ;) Wish you all the best and greetings from Wrocław :)

Given the scarcity of laundromats and their limited opening hours, the lack of a washing machine in this hostel is a major disadvantage. That's if you want to spend your daytime visiting Prague, not washing your clothing.

This place looks good, especially the bar area. The girl at the bar is charming, but her colleagues can be unpleasant. The food and beer at the bar are great. Prices are good. The common room is nice, it has a washing machine for free, even free soap. Nice LCD TV with satellite signal from Deutsche Telekom. Showers are very modern, which is good when you like being clean. The rooms could be much cleaner, however. Breakfast is crap. Security could improve, they let people in withou checking.
