The Baroness Hotel, Seattle, USA

13th Jul 2013

I thought this hotel was really nice. It is quite old, but it is comfortable and clean, and the atmosphere is really cool because it's so old. I truly enjoyed my stay. The only thing I will say is that I wish there were safes in the room and a fan in the bathroom. I thought it was really neat that there was a kitchen with dishes so you could cook your own meals. I will definitely stay here again next time in Seattle.

This was a great hostel in a good location right near Green Lake Park, which is a really great place to hang out. It is also close to the foreigner's street if you're into that. We stayed in a private room and it was just like staying in a hotel. The shower was great...one of the best I had in all of China! The bar/common area was nice and was always busy. The staff at the bar/restaurant could have been better since they didn't know what to do with the coupon they gave us at the front desk.

I really liked this hostel. The showers were great and hot! The beds were comfortable and the common area/bar was really nice. The staff for the most part was really friendly and helpful except for one girl who was kind of rude and when I asked questions about how to get places, she would always say "you should book the tour" no matter how many times I said I didn't want to! The others were great and helpful though. If you order tea you can keep getting refills of water which is nice.

This hostel was really great . The private room was great and it was really clean. The courtyard was really nice and the common area was a great place to meet people. The location is fantastic, with a really good restaurant across the street. The shared bathroom was decent but could have been a bit cleaner, but it was still definitely usable! I would stay here again and would recommend it to everybody

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! The staff is absolutely fantastic! They are so helpful and kind. I was so sad to leave! One of the girls even gave me a hug goodbye. I constantly felt welcome there. If you have any questions, they are eager to help. The bathrooms were great and clean. The showers were fantastic. The courtyard was beautiful and so was the common area. The location is great, close to so many sights! I would recommend this hostel to everyone.

This place is great. The staff is very friendly and the location in Miraflores is awesome. Close to so many restaurants and bars and the main park, Parque Kennedy. There is a common area with bean bag chairs and lots of movies, and a rooftop bar. Unfortunately I was very sick while I was there so I didn't do much but the staff was always concerned with how I was feeling and let me use their phone to call my insurance company. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone!

The hostel is very close to the main tourist street and also is walking distance from the port to take ferries on Lake Titicaca. The staff were very friendly and very helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms were cold but there is a heater in the rooms which helps. The only thing was one of the windows in the bathroom which looks out in the hallway was not there, so if someone was walking up the stairs to the next floor, they could see in. There was also a TV in the room. I would stay here again.

This is a good place to stay if you have an early flight the next day as it is quite close to the airport and they have airport pick up and drop off for a very good price. Also they have hot water and the place is clean and also there is free internet. Good rooms that are comfortable.

The hostel was very cold at night as it is not heated, which would be okay if there were enough blankets on the bed. Also, they promised to pick us up from the airport but the taxi never showed so we had to call them to get another one, which came in 20-30 minutes but cost us 60 soles instead of 50 as promised originally. The staff however were very friendly and gave good advice on what to do in Lima. Also, the water didn't work one morning, but it was very early so that could be why.

This hostel is great! I would definitely stay here again. The staff is EXTREMELY friendly and helpful. The breakfast is mediocre, but its free so you can\'t complain. My only real complaint is its hard to take a shower in the lower floor bathrooms while others are taking a shower upstairs as it will go from scalding to cold constantly...the upstairs bathroom is the best as you will not have this problem. At night, you don\'t have to worry about the water problem so its not too bad.

This hostel is a good value, nice clean rooms, big kitchen and laundry(although it takes about 3 hours or more to wash and dry) , it also has a bar downstairs that goes until 6am. However, it needs more private showers, as there was only one and the other showers were open communal ones which for a canadian/north american is hard for me to get used to, thus I had to wait for awhile to use the private one. But if this doesn\'t bother you, go for it!it is a very nice hostel.

This guesthouse is amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, I have no complaints. The owners of the place are such sweethearts, so friendly and accomodating and fun to spend time with. This is one of the best places I have stayed, the price is unbeatable for what you get and it even has a small swimming pool! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone coming to Brasov.

The location of the hostel is hard to beat. Its within the city walls so its walking distance from all the sights in Sighisoara. If you are driving, beware of scammers leading you to a parking spot and trying to charge you. Parking is free game pretty much anywhere here so don\'t give them anything! The restaurant at the hostel is very good but the staff is not very friendly. At all. The private room we had was huge! Very good value for your money.

Very nice place however we booked an 8 bed dorm and it was, but there was a door leading to the next dorm that you had to go through ours to get to. Doors did not lock, bathrooms were clean and private. Beds were okay but if you are on the top bunk you can feel every movement the person under you makes, but this is pretty normal for hostel bunks. The staff was very friendly and funny. Internet is free. All in all very good hostel would definitely recommend that you stay here.

This place is fantastic for staying in Venice on a budget. I stayed in a cabin with its own bathroom and shower and it was very secure and clean. I would definitely stay here again, only problem is how far away it is from Venice, but there is a bus that leaves frequently and if you take it early enough, you will be able to see enough of venice to catch the last bus to the campsite. Theres also a bar at the site to make up for not being able to see the nightlife in Venice.

The hostel is really close to an amazing club, wish I could remember the name. The bar at the hostel is really great as well...lots of computers to access the internet, food, and beer pong. The pool in the basement is great. Would stay here again without a thought.
