Shepherd Guest House, New York, USA

The house (it not a typical hostel) is great. It lies in a very interesting and quiet neighborhood. Very good choice, especially if you like to explore Brooklyn. The lady who runs the place is friendly and the kitchen is well equipped. The bathrooms could need a bit more attention.

Reasonable priced hostel in an interesting part of the town. Not in old town though. Room had an odd smell but was clean. Altogether a decent choice.

Hostal Casa Areka, Panama City, Panama

8th Apr 2015

Let's start with the bright side... the hostel got a nice courtyard, a good common room and a sufficiently well equipped kitchen. The area is probably one of the saves in town but not very convenient. The staff seems to be friendly but doesn't really care. Our bed was broken, we told them, nothing happened. When asking for Information - the answeres were pretty unmotivated. Especially in the morning you hardly found one at all. The toilets kept on breaking, not well cleaned rooms... nuff said.

Besides the excellent security and very nice staff everything about this hostel got pros and cons. The location is very beautiful but a bit of a ride from bocas town. athmosphere is nice but it can get a bit full. The bathrooms are pretty clean, the kitchen could need a bit more attention. If you get a double with window it is well worth the money. If you've got one without it feels like an overpaid prison. This said, I'd book the hostel again and defenitly recommend the tours which are awesome!

Beautiful and big rooms, nice garden and a lovely couple that runs the place. Sufficiently close to everything. Truly a place to enjoy this wonderful part of Costa Rica. Even before breakfast you might see a colibri or a monkey from your terrace.

Nice and clean hostel, friendly staff and good oraganised activities.Only thing is that the travel information they give you are somewhat outdated. For example for busses from Puntarenas you are much better off checking the Facebook page 'Horarios de buses Costa Rica Pacifico Central'.

Makako Chill Out Hostel, Cartagena, Colombia

17th May 2014

Nice and chilled out atmosphere, quiet rooms and a beautiful common area as well as a convenient location in town. Some of the staff is nice others are quite indifferent. The checkout times are later than in other hostels which is great, however you might need the time in the morning to as the amount of bathrooms is insufficient for the size of the hostel.

Beautiful double rooms, quiet street, nice and helpful staff. No breakfast but a sufficiently equipped kitchen and a good supermarket nearby help to solve that problem. A (minor) issue is the fridge where things tend to disappear. Not sure if this is due to the guest the hostel tends to attract or due to the cleaning staff. Nevertheless a hostel I would always choose again.

A good hostel to chill out for a few days. Rooms are nice but basic. The overall atmosphere is very relaxed. The hostel does not have a kitchen, however the food they offer is good and well priced. We positively recognized the amount of bathrooms available, which helps to avoid ques in the morning. The price seemed a bit high in the beginning, but as a tour was included it was good in the end. Finally we have to say that all of the staff is really nice, especially the bartender!

A seriously great hostel. The staff is really nice and more than helpful, the rooftop terrace is incredible and the breakfast they serve on it is well above average. The double room and the bathroom were cleaned every day and were the nicest and cleanlinest we had for months. It could be closer to the center but that's not a real problem. The only thing we missed was a better equipped kitchen. If this is fixed the hostel is close to perfect.

Hostel in a very good location of the town. Average staff, not the cleanlinest bathrooms and quite often queues. Can be quite a noisy place with groups of party travellers. Yet, the atmosphere in the hostel is better than in many others.

This hostel is a real reference for how it should be done! Only to minor issues, there might be a smell from the street in one of the double rooms (not the fault of the hostel) and other hostel in hostelbon / lisbon might be just as good.

It is a student doorm which is used as a hostel, doesn't have a hostel atmosphere at all, no cooking facilities and as many places in Dublin it is fairly pricy. However, staying within trinity college is pretty cool and convenient. The staff was nice and helpful as well. Depending on what you are looking for this is a decent choice in Dublin.

It's more like a hotel than a hostel... therefore the "community feeling" isn't quite as good as I got to know it in great hostels. However, the rooftop terrace is cool, the location and staff is great. A really good place to stay if you want to visit Nürnberg.

City Partner Hotel F�rstenhof, Wiesbaden, Germany

21st May 2012

Positive: - One of the few places in Wiesbaden where you can get a cheaper single room in a relatively convenient location Negative: - Pretty run down, last refurbishment probably in the 80s - No toilet paper in the shared toilet for 2 days, guess how much cleaning was done in that time - Even when told the staff did not change anything. In addition to that they refused to put the 10% hostelworld downpayment on the bill which makes it hard to reclaim the money. Conlusion: Don’t stay there!

One of the best Hostels I ever stayed in. The staff is just great, so is the style of the hostels. The services they offer are extremly helpful for china travellers. The trip to the great wall could be improved though. Be open, give people a better idea what to expect. What you get to see on this trip is just amazing, however extra tickets for the cable car need to be puchased, bus is very tiny and the food is... "average". Nevertheless a very big thank you to the team! I had a great time!

Dear Guest, thanks a million for the kind review and nice rating! No doubt we had such great time with you and your friend. We will try to explain every details to the guests but because we are not those who make the tours we can't really change the arrangements. However, we will recommend the best ones all the time to those who want a wonderful exploration of Beijing. Wish to see you again some day! - Shel, Chinese Box

This is a hotel, similar to ibis, etap or motel one. I had a double room and the price was pretty much the same as in one of the hotels mentioned... not as good though. What I consider to be really annoying is the surcharge for credit cards which is absolutely not uptodate anymore... as well as unfree internet. I do not recommend this place.
