We felt cheated! When it was too late to book anything else, Riad Atlas told us they were overbooked and put us somewhere else, another little Riad. No heating, no bar, no atmosphere. And all guests there had originally booked the Atlas! The Riad Atlas is cheating this Hostelword system – they attract all the guests; then distribute them as they like it among the less desirable houses. I have no idea what you could do against this “system” – except maybe banning them from the Hostelword site!
We've been to this hostel several times already. It seems a bit far out, but there is an excellent 24 hr bus connection that runs straight past Trafalgar & Leicester Square & Convent Garden to Camden Town. You can walk (or ride the bus) to Victoria Station. A nice walk is also along the river until Big Ben and Houses of Parliament. Breakfast is great with omelets made to order. Soft drinks and coffee are free all day - if you are hit by bad weather you can hang out in their cozy pub.
Great atmosphere, very welcoming lounge, good for meeting people. Staff very friendly.
This is really like your own private home in Barcelona where you can enjoy breakfast and the good bread (hmh) on the sunny terrace (Casa Teva Apartment)! Victor will make your stay very comfortable. Only if you are looking for the company of other travelers or the party crowd, it is not the right place to stay.
Great location in Montmartre! We came the second time to this hostel and stayed in 38 bis which is a small double room with bunk bed, so we don't know what the dorms were like.
Staff is super friendly and so helpful, even carry your bags inside when you come in tired after the flight... Not without reason that this is such a highly rated place! We liked it a lot. Perfect location for the old part of Istanbul - from the roof terrace you can see the mosques.
Very friendly and fun staff, very clean! Unfortunately there is one room without a window. We were able to change to a different room, but that might not always be possible.
Great to meet people as this hostel has its own cool pub! We enjoyed staying in on a rainy night. Right in the center close to everything.
Stayed in a 4bed girls\' room with view of the Sacre Coeur, wow! Very clean, nice little bathroom. Montmatre and the hostel are close to Gare du Nord, which is convenient for the airport. Can\'t judge the fun factor of the hostel as I was just there to sleep...
Great hostel! It is right really right at Placa Reial, which is not only one of the most beautiful squares but also off the Ramblas right in the center. It is a party hostel alright, but at 1 or 2 am (we don\'t quite remember :-) the bar closes and everything goes quiet. Those who like can sign up for going to the most \"in\" clubs, leaving at 1:30 am. Everything very clean and staff very friendly.
It\'s quite a walk along the river from the major sites, but the 24 hr bus runs very frequently and brings you right to the door step. The pub downstairs is great to hang out for a night cap and to meet people.
Great location, very clean. Friendly staff. We stayed in one of the double rooms, they are in a separate building in a flat with 1 kitchen, bathroom, toilet for 3 rooms. This felt quite luxurious :-) but we cannot say much about the character or fun factor of the actual hostel.
The location is really great! We treated ourselves to the more expensive double room, but that's really not worth it - it also has a bunk bed and was rather cramped. The bathrooms were extremely hot and the toilets didn't flush properly. So it just wasn't a such a comfortable stay.
Very friendly lovely staff. Great little party for New Year's.
We had a private room, which was very nice and clean - and also quiet. So we can't say anything about the big dorm. The hostel has its own nice pub and a great one next door. Breakfast is included and very relaxed, people sit around for a long time, There's free wireless, also a plus. It's a little more "out of town", but really not bad, convenient to the train station (10 min.) and 15 min. to the Powder Tower.
Top location in pedestrian area of Baixa, walking distance to the major squares and Barrio Alto. Nice rooms, nice common areas. The cleanest hostel we have ever seen!
