Its exterior doesn't look inviting but the interior is very nice and comfortably heated in spring when it s harshly cold outside. Living room and all room areas including bathroom are very spacious and comfortable. All staff are friendly and informative. The host can ring the local authority straightaway for more information when being asked. I do love this place and highly recommend to all of you.
In a walking distance to most attractions and they offer you free pick up from the railway station. Decent affordable tours are available no matter one day or a trip away fir a few days . Nice and comfortable to stay in as if you are at home. I really like the place .
The most impressive feature is the friendly staff being supportive and informative, but the only downside is the lack of key to get through the gate. Anyway you simply knock and the staff will open the gate for you in no time.
Centrally situated, easily accessible to most attractions. The living room is fascinatingly decorated in full colours and designs. Bathing and room facilities are comfortable to use. Staff with service mind can be assistive and informative. The place is situated in a nice and peaceful Hutong away from city atmosphere. I do like this place.
Great location, near tram and metro though it s a bit hard to find the place from the start based on the map provided. Rooms are comfortably heated in winter and rooftop dining area offers great views. Staff are very helpful on all information of interesting places and how to get there. It was very kind of them to let me leave the baggage there on my transit day in istanbul (the day i did not stay) Thank you again for comfy spaces and great hospitality.
My 2nd stay on the way back before the return flight. Staff is excellent and its location is somehow ok. Room charge is affordable, less than cost of living in Moscow.
The place is cleansed and well sanitized with decent facility and chic design. The room is quite spacious and comfy. Its location is just nice. From there you can walk to the centre. The host is willing to help you out all the time when you make any request, despite her limited English. There s a washing machine and you pay just 50R for a wash then you got a spacious hanging area. I am truly impressed with the place and its staff.
Though not quite competent in English, the host Galina is quite friendly giving useful and plentiful advice on how to get around. It s a fair walk to the place but not too far from the railway station. The only down side is that it s located on the 5th floor without elevator and you can smell kitten's excrement quite strong. And thanks again for understanding and allowing me to take a shower amid hot summer after I had already checked out.
On the way back... one night stay before boarding the flight. This place is still the best choice in terms of location, value, ambience, staff hospitality, and so on.
Good location, just a few minutes from airport bus stop. Staff are very helpful on arranging day tours at affordable price, and advice on how to get around. Dorm rooms with air-cond are really pleasing after walking in the heat all day long outside. Shared bathrooms and toilets are quite spacious and comfortable. Especially the lobby is very relaxing in nice ambience. Though located near walking street, its other side faces the greenery of the hill, yielding tranquility at night. I do like here.
Interesting interior design with spacious room and entry way. Though fairly far from the centre, it s still in a walking distance to town. Anyway, shared bathroom for all dorm is not enough during rush hour.
Good location with friendly staff and nice views. Quite peaceful at night but not far from the centre. Male dorm room is quite large with en suite bathroom and a balcony for sunrise enjoying. The corridor is large and always kept clean. I really recommend this place for its great value. Anyway, the map on the website seems to be misleading towards the opposite direction.

A bit far from the lakeside, but peaceful for night sleep. Staff are helpful on information including transport arrangement to get around at inexpensive price. The ambience is homey feature like being still at home. Beyond that, the Himalayan range is visible from the rooftop. And thank you for waking up early in the morning to prepare hot shower for me before my departure on the last day.
Being close to Thamel, the main shopping area and centre, it is easy to get around. Staff are well accommodaitng, giving you useful information, and also can arrange transport to get around at affordable price. On the down side, in winter it is a bit cold in the room due to lack of heater, but hot shower is there to alleviate the toughness of winter.
Just a few blocks from the metro. The room itself and common area like dining area bar or lounge is pleasantly designed in a relaxed setting. The bathroom is a bit far from the room though. Staff r helpful on your request.
Close to metro but a bit hard to find the place as the reception is on 4f of a restaurant downstairs. Staff r super friendly with service mind. Free drink is given once checking in or later upon your request. The hostel is on another building and you will be escorted to the place. Staff r always listening to you and they can accommodate your request for everything. Thank you for your great hospitality.
Staff are extremely friendly and I am truly satisfied with their service mind by the way they supported me all the time once I inquired how to get around. Location is great, within the centre of everything including nightlife and eateries, but it is situated in a serene corner, making it quite peaceful at night suitable for sound sleep. Reception is on the 5th floor of a big building (where its ground floor is a Korean restaurant), but the hostel is on another building on a nearby road.
A bit further from main station but anyway bus network can do the job quite well. Interior design is impressive giving me certain ideas on how to renovate my house. En-suite bathroom is spacious and clean including the room itself. Top floor dining area is beautifully designed in a chic and relaxed atmosphere. Thank you for a comfy accommodating atmosphere. I enjoyed staying here.
Easy to find. Staff is very friendly giving you useful info of the town. It s a big apartment divided into small and comfy rooms with nice rooftop. The only problem might be the availability of only bathroom-cum-toilet. That means you need to allow lots of time for a quick shower, considering long-queue waits.
Still the best in itaewon. Thank you again for warm welcome and comfy stay.
Best location near night life scene and metro but you need a bit of exercise to climb up a small hill. The dorm room is spacious including roomy and clean shared bathroom. The host can give you lots of info on how to get around.
Located a bit off-centre and hard to find. Without service-mind, the guy(receptionist) was not in the mood to give direction to the hostel on the phone. Moreover, I booked this place for two nights, and planned to depart at 10pm of the second night (I informed so to the staff). Anyway, I changed my plan to leave a few hours later (without telling them in advance). Once getting back to the place, I foud my luggage was removed from the room and the room was not available to me anymore. Unreal!!
All staff have service-mind and they are willing to assist you anytime like getting you around in the nearby area. Though the booking was not known by them, they can arrange the best room straightaway. Dorm room is not available (tho the website says so), but only paying 10 EGP more, you can get a room for yourself. The place is in walking distance from the railway station, and the staff are happy to pick you up on the platform. Facility in the room needs a bit of maintenance.
Friendly staff at a nice location. Rooms are spacious with high and comfy ceiling. Mustafa (probably the manager) can arrange train tickets even before you get to the hostel. That is very impressive. The place is a bit hard to find though, and you then need to ask locals for direction.
All staff are friendly with competent English, and its location is superb, where you can walk from airport bus stop near Bell Tower. Dorm room is nice and clean, but the bathroom is situated outside the room with squat toilet. Good deals on one-day tour booking including the Tang dynasty show with dinner. I will definitely stay here again if I happen to revisit here.
Good location near the railway station, and the whole place is cleanly sanitized with nice n fresh fragrance. The dorm room is also clean equipped with comfy air-con. Superb interior design with chic carpet, but the only problem may be the availability of only one bathroom. If just one person stays in the bathroom for long, that will disrupt and frustrate everyone else in case the rest is in a hurry.
The room has spacious high-ceiling with clean space, while the lobby interior is so impressive that it inspires me how I should modify my own living room. Rooftop garden is nice with overlooking view to the town, and also the shower in the garden is very nice especially during the daytime. Mani the owner is very friendly with lots of useful advice on how to get around.
The place is quite clean and spacious even in the dorm room. Its location is close to one of Airport Link Stations, suitable for those who have early flight. Anyway, the problem is just the lack of a proper map because verbal direction can be confusing or misleading.
Though the path leading to the hostel is not inviting, the place is very comfy and clean. Tam the receptionist is highly friendly with always smiling face and informative on how to get around. Even in the 4 mixed dorm room, you get an LCD TV, ensuite bathroom, reading lamp, and very nice and clean linen, and the room rate per person is only 6$, the best deal. I highly recommend this place.
very close to the airport, with free pick-up and drop-off.
The overall interior looks nice, and staff are informative, and helpful, but sometimes it is hard to find them. For dorm, no matter it is 2 beds, 3 beds, or more beds, it is basically a large dorm with partitions and curtains to separate each space apart. During weekends, it can be a nightmare because if someone talks loud at night it will be too hard to sleep and the noise can be heard to the whole floor.
All staff are impressive, including the place. I would highly recommend this place.
Staff are friendly, and supportive. Nice range of breakie especially fruits are impressive, including stylish lobby at the front outside. Two-bed mixed dorm is nice with privacy and an air-con, along with a large locker to fit in your large bag and all your stuffs.
Staff are very helpful, informative, and ready to assist you anytime. The whole place is spotless with nice design, close to a local food court, but a bit far (on foot) from railway station. A two-bed mixed dorm is nice choice. Though it is a pathway to the owner's room, the room has a nice curtain and you have certain level of privacy as the owners are very silent and polite while passing your room.
This is my second stay here, an ideal place to be when you have an ealy flight. Staff provides both free pick-up and drop-off services from and to the airport. The room is well designed and clean, also large enough for a young family. All staff has service mind, with their smiles always on their face. The hospitality here is highly impressive.
The room is fairly unclean especially the shared bathroom and a squat toilet. A bit far from the town. Anyway, as there are not many people, so you can have a bit of privacy here.
Very clean, and close to the main railway station. The whole building is air-conditioned and regularly cleaned. Staff is very nice with smiling faces all the time... Very impressed with my stay here.
A bit far from Fangcun railway station (the closest one), but the lobby interior is quite nice, and packed with friendly and sociable people who hang out at the lobby at night. The room is quite clean and large, even the dorm room. However, there are not enough staff to take care of you, so you may get lost while searching for your room.
Very clean and located at the top floor allowing you to see beautiful panorama of Nanning. The lobby is well designed with comfy and relaxed touches. Chinese staff is very polite, and supportive on any information you ask for, especially how to get around to here and there.
Close to Hoan Kiem Lake, easy to get around, and the room is nice, clean with proper facility. Staff speak good English, informative on traveling tips, and they can assist you with nearly everything. Note: its name has been changed to Hanoi City Hotel and the number is 16a (not 11).
A very nice and convenient spot close to Bangkok airport to stay when you have an early flight. All staff are friendly, helpful, and ready to assist you all the time. I am very impressed with the stay there.
Slightly out of town, but just in a walking distance to the historic town. The building and the interior is quite nice, equipped with Baba nonya-styled archaic furniture, truly reminiscent of my times as a boy. Though aged, the place is well maintained and the bathroom is quite spacious allowing a nice and warm morning sun to bathe in. Howard lent us a bike for free at 7pm and we bike for a dinner and some tour in the town. The only problem might be with the bed bug, keeping me itchy all night.
Good location near the wall of the Forbidden city, best facility to at least three-star standard but you just pay at a very cheap hostel price. Warm amd genuine hospitality by all staff espicially the guy who always appears with nice and cute smiles. The room is comfortably warm and the en-suite bathroom is spotless. Even for a dorm room, you also got a TV in your room. Apart from the city of Beijing itself, I also love this hostel. You make my holidays in Beijing truly impressive.
in transit again on the way home, Equator is still my first choice for a stopover.
Equipped with spacious and fashionable lobby to nearly five-star hotel standard, in winter like this the hostel is comfortably heated like being in spring. The corridor is also spotless including the clean nice and warm room. Staff are very helpful and informative for the best way to get around. Just ask, and they can answer anything. The complimentary breakie is filling, and tastes well especially the Xiao Long Pao buns. Quite convenient to get around bcoz it's near the metro.
In transit to China, Equator is still my first choice for its best value. All staff are friendly and the facility is better than what you pay for. Keep it up. I love your place.
On the way back to my home country, Equator still makes it for a good spot for transit. Some of local staff have changed but their hospitality remains unchanged. I will definitely come back here again when transitting.
The hotel is designed in grand scale especially the lobby, and the room is beautifully clean with nice mosquito net. From the window, you can see nice and big orchard plete with different kinds of plants. and you can pay by credit card here. I love this place.
I spent the first night in Sri Lanka at this hotel, and was so impressed with its setting amidst the abundantly greeny hill and genuine natural straps. A tiny and clean swimming pool is available any time to refresh you before heading to another destination. The room itself is very large suitable for a family. At night, it is a bit hard to get back to the hotel on foot because all streets are not fully lit. Anyway, I got a chance to see a firefly on the balcony. That is speechless to me.
This is my second stay here in transit to Colombo. Equator is still the best so far especially the friendliness from all staff. Keep it up.
The room on the Ground Floor is a bit stuffed and smelly with no windows to get light through but staff are quite friendly and supportive. Breakie is good and enough to survive for the whole morning.
Anna the host and two local staff are very friendly and supportive all the time. The location is a bit hard to find but the interior design is stylishly superb especially the dining area which provides nice basic breakie. The room, the bed and the linen look classy in colour being comfy and clean with proper daily cleaning. The bathroom is spotless and most important thing, shower gel and shampoo are provided. This is truly a hotel at the budget of a hostel. Dear Staff, I do love your service
The receptionist is very friendly and supportive, being ready to assist you for any occasion. Though the interior is rather dated, it is impressive the way they manage daily housekeeping even for dorm room.
The hostel is in a quiet and serene area, making it easy to chill out at night, but still it is not too far from the main attractions, just within walking distance.
Staff are friendly with sincere smiles, being ready to help you at any time. Despite dated bathroom facilities, the dorm room is alright and the location is rather good.
I got to the room on the second night to be advised that I needed to move to another room because a new group of people wanted the whole room. Staff has another option as a decent reason to refuse the whole room to the new-comers and kindly explain so to them that there is already someone in there. All toilets are a bit dirty and disgusting though. Immediate cleaning or renovation is urgently required.
This place is a family-run hotel with casual setting in the lobby and comfortably relaxable rooms. I got the room on the top floor which gave me city view on three sides. The bathroom has a bath and adequate hot water along with clean-looking interior. The staff are very friendly though there were some mistakes about clashes on room reservation on the first night but they tried their best to accommodate us by transfering to other place nearby on that night straightaway. That is impressive to me. The hotel is located at the intersection, suitable position for shopping at night or daytime as shops are just a few steps away. The place accommodates not too many people making it easy to take care of all guests. We got free light dinner on New Year Eve... That was great.
