Good place to stay with very friendly staff. Bunk beds were comfortable. Only bad thing is that there are only stairs...which sucks with heavy baggage!

Cheap private room for two, but only one shared bathroom between alot of rooms. Good location as it is literally one street away from Victoria Coach Station so perfect if you are travelling to or from London by bus.

Bob's Youth Hostel

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Great little hostel in Amsterdam that is in the city centre but away from the craziness of most of Amsterdam. The breakfast is nice with a boiled egg and toast for free. They also put all the leftover boiled eggs in a bowl after breakfast at 11am and you can grab as many as you like for a snack :) The staff are mostly nice but some are very deadbeat as though they have had personality bypasses. Only annoying thing was that we booked a 16 bed room only to find 20 beds in there...

This place is like staying in a hotel! We had a private double bed room with en suite. It was amazing value for money considering that cleaners came every day to change your sheets and give you new towels. Would highly recommend this place as it also has good, fast, free internet and amenities such as a restaurant and swimming pool.

I had a great stay here! The place is perfectly located in the Naschmarkt where you can get cheap food which is high quality just outside the hostel. The rooms were nice, and the staff pleasant. I also highly commend the staff and hostel as my girlfriend had to be taken to hospital on the morning we were supposed to check out, so we paid another nights worth in a 12 bed dorm, and they put us in a double ensuite for no extra charge until my girlfriend was better to check out late that day!

This is an AMAZING hostel. When you get there you will be greeted with a smile and a shot of Palinka by either Szuzy, Suzie or the owner Adam (who is the artist who has painted/decorated the whole hostel). The staff are the friendliest I've ever met and will chill and chat with you. They actually like working there :D The hostel also has a dinner night once a week with free food, alcohol and snacks where you chill with the other travellers. Lavender Circus made our stay in Budapest the best.

Ragtime

A very quite, nice hostel. It is a 5 minute walk away from the hostel which was annoying but the double bed room for the price was worth it. There is no common room and the whole place was pretty much dead quiet throughout our stay. Would have like to meet some people and chat while staying here. Good value for money, and perfect if you are just wanting to see Prague with your partner.

This is a great hostel close to the main strip in Amsterdam. It has an awesome chill out room where you can relax on the cushions and smoke. The rooms they have are HUGE however, 32 bed dorms?? No bathroom or shower in there?? What the hell?? Other than that I loved it! The atmosphere, the facilities (kitchen, bar) and the security was all top notch.

An awesome hostel with great beds! They have a privacy curtain so you can shut out the rest of the room when going to sleep. It is well placed in Bruge and easy to get around to see the main square and belfrey etc. Easy to recommend staying here!

Located on top of a Pub, it's a great place to stay. It is close to Victoria Coach Station for catching Coaches internationally or within the UK. The bed were triple bunk beds which were scary, thankfully we were on bottom bunks! They have lockers in the rooms which is great, seeing as though they have CODES to get into into the hostel and rooms. The codes didn't change for the few days we were there and I would like to have seen more security regarding that.

Art House Hostel

This hostel is AMAZING. The staff were nice, helpful and clearly loved running the place! They lived in the hostel as well and know the owner personally which gives it a really Family-Owned feel. The kitchen is great and the staff even cooked meals which they shared with us. The rooms were good as were the showers and toilets. The common room was huge with a massive projector and computer to use. I cannot recommend this hostel highly enough!

The hostel was having renovations while we stayed there. So I had to walk up 4 floors to use the bathroom/shower. That sucked ass. Ok value for money with a big kitchen which is great.

Barnacles Temple Bar House

This hostel is right in the centre of Temple Bar so its perfect to grab a pint of Guinness. The staff were really nice and helpful and the security of the hostel is good. Unfortunately the wifi is only available in the common room and kitchen - and it was down half the time we stayed there anyway.

Traveler's Inn Seville

Seville, Spain

There are two hostels that are run together, this one and Seville Inn Backpackers. And what is perfect is they seem to have this hostel as the quieter, more relaxed one, and Seville Inn Backpackers as the party one. Staying here was great because you can have peace and quiet, then just head to the brother hostel to party! I even came back one night to make dinner and found they had cooked up a feast for everyone to eat!!! A big thankyou goes out to Silvia who was super friendly and awesome :D

Cinque Terre Holidays

Stayed in Riomaggiore in a flat up a steep flight of stairs. Was a bit of a trek and potentially dangerous in the dark as some stairs were broken. The flat was nice but the shower head was broken (as in not attached) so you basically showered with a hose. Other than that it was great and in the middle of the town.

Hostel Pisa

Only stayed for a night but the staff were nice and pointed us to the Tower on the map, making the good recommendation to walk rather than catch a bus. The hostel is very close to the station and had a HUGE kitchen which would be a massive bonus to people who are looking to stay a few days. Nice common room, but computers were a bit slow, but heh, they're free right?

Villa Banana

Dubrovnik, Croatia

What a great little hostel! The owners are a family who rent out their villa. They welcomed me with biscuits and orange juice upon arrival and greeted me as family :D In addition they picked me up from the bus station when I arrived. The walk to the old town is 15 mins and not difficult at all, its really scenic. All those people who complain about having to walk up steps to get to this hostel need to MAN UP. Dubrovnik is FULL of steps. Don't come here if you aren't prepared to climb some!

Sun Bright Hotel

Ughhhh....this place is shocking. Ever watch the movie The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio? Remember one of the opening scenes where he checks into that hotel/hostel room in Thailand? Yeah thats right, it's worse than that. You are packed into a room 1x2.5metres big (not joking) with only about 3 toilets/showers between 100 people. The walls are made of the thinnest material ever, and they don't go up to the ceiling, they end in chicken wire. Avoid this place unless you are desperate.

Nice location, but they had another person living in the hostel in my room, and the showers/bathrooms were filthy. The other guy staying in the dorm was filthy and apparently working for the hostel...he showed me that he was getting evicted from the hostel because he had a disagreement with the owner. I.e. he was staying there and not leaving until they kicked him out.

This hostel is actually a hotel which lists rooms as being available on HW. That being said you get your own room, a MASSIVE air conditioner (thank god for that during summer), bathroom and TV. This hostel is not a social place to stay. You won't meet other people, except for people getting married in the chapel. SHOTGUN WEDDING!

A great place to stay. You meet a TON of other people who are all friendly. The staff are friendly and they take security seriously. They also offer lots of tours that you can sign up for and meet other people. Perfect for the solo traveller. It is quite pricey though.
