NO KITCHEN AND NO FRIDGE!! Aside from that, the breakfast costs 6 GBP. The hostel, though nice and clean (and fast Internet!), mainly caters to large tour groups (who book their meals at the hostel restaurant as a part of their tour package), and it shows. There is practically no backpacker vibe in the place. Also the neighborhood is very posh (Chelsea) and there is no large supermarket in the area. As you need to use a tube in London anyway, stay some other "regular" neighborhood instead.

Hi there, Many thanks for your kind comment and your rating! You're right, we have a lot of groups staying here. We are more than happy to welcome you maybe some other time, when there are not that many school groups (how about August?!). Chelsea and South Kensington are great areas for the going to one of the famous museums. Next time please ask at reception for directions to the supermarkets there are 3 nearby :) Hope to see you soon! Take care! Your Meininger Team!

Practically no Internet, which was snail speed to never connectable even in the common lounge. Bunk beds are old/rusty and there is no lockable storage. You might say the location is good (West End) but it's actually quite inconvenient as there is no large supermarket nearby. In London, you'll need a tube to go around places anyway, so there is no advantage in staying in an expensive neighborhood like West End. The only reason I stayed there was because I couldn't get other hostels' beds.

Internet is completely unusable (snail speed or no connection). This is inexcusable as a hostel nowadays. Breakfast was with cheap stuff (cereal, breads, nothing else). The only good thing was the location which was central.

Paper thin walls between rooms. You can hear absolutely EVERYTHING from next doors, laughing, coughing. You might as well stay in a dorm instead of a single/double room because you get to hear everything from your next doors anyway.

Pretty typical hostel setting. Cheap paper thin walls between rooms. You can hear everything from other rooms and people walking down the hall ways. Otherwise, it's a very social atmosphere.

The place was a bit dingy but definitely nice enough. Sociable atmosphere without going crazy like some other hostels.

Really nice hostel. Staff was accommodating to my request as well (requesting a lower bunk bed etc). Will stay again.

It's nice like their counterpart in BA, though other hostels in Calafate are equally nice so it doesn't warrant higher prices like the one in BA. It's always fully booked as well but really no better than other hostels in Calafate.

Loved un-bunked single beds even though they were cheaply built. Beds were placed spacey enough. Nice atmosphere

Nice enough and the location is central. No AC so I would imagine it would be uncomfortable in hot summer days otherwise it's nice.

Pretty nice facilities. Nice staff. Quiet enough and sociable enough without going crazy like some other hostels in BA. A bit more expensive than other hostels in BA, but if that "exclusivity" is what you want (not having to mingle with dirt-dirt cheap travelers) this might be the place for you.

Not sure how to judge this place. Their next door was under construction (looked like owned by the same people), it was absolutely horrible staying there. Maybe it's a pleasant place to stay otherwise.

Q4 Hotel

The hostel is in Queens but actually is quickly accessible by major subways (E, F, N, R, W, etc) from mid to lower Manhattan and is far more accessible than many other hostels in or near Harlem (which are mostly far from the subway stations). The facilities are very new and clean when I stayed. Ample room and good facilities in the common area. It's still not cheap, but considering how convenient the location is and how good the facilities are, I'll stay again when I'm back in NYC.

I stayed here 10 days ago and stayed here again after traveling around Arizona. Same fun, friendly atmosphere. It's great if you are traveling by yourself as you'll meet tons of people, but again not a good value if you just want to stay in a single room by yourself as Vegas in weekdays offers cheap rooms with much better locations (the main part of the strip) with similar prices to a dorm bed here. I only stayed here again because it was a weekend and there was no cheap room deals.

The staff was great and the place has a very friendly atmosphere with nightly events to go to the main part of the Las Vegas strip. However, the location is far from the central and you'll need to take a bus to go back and force to the casinos or whatever you wanna visit. Considering in weekdays in Vegas, you can get a single room at a hotel in the main part of the strip with a similar price to a dorm bed at this price, I can't say it's a good value. Overall a pleasant and fun place to stay.

DO NOT BOOK AT THIS HOSTEL. I flew into Moscow in the morning after a long overnight flight and I was absolutely exhausted and went to this hostel to check in (to have a much needed sleep). They made me wait at the common room FOR 3 HOURS (for unknown reasons other than "we're busy") before they finally told me that THEY DON'T HAVE ANY BED BECAUSE THEY HAD OVERBOOKED BEDS. They cheerfully told me that I could go to another hostel in some other part of Moscow. I complained that 1) I have a reservation (which
