My first and last night in a capsule hotel. For Japanese standards the staff was quite rude. One tried to shortchange me at the checkin. It's normal making misstakes, but at the evening I bought a drink in their restaurant from a vending machine of the hotel. I was sitting at a table in an almost empty (one client) restaurant. I was scared away from my table like a child and had to sit at another table. Wifi is only in the basement of the hotel and lockers are at least one floor below.

Q4 Hotel

New York, USA
83%

A good hostel in New York. Only complaining about the fact that they charge USD 5 for luggagestorage when you leave. (because the money is earned). You've not pay this fee when you've to check in. First hostel which charged a fee for luggagestorage. Especially when you look at the price you expect that this is included. This in the main reason for the lower mark in this review.

A very good hostel in Rio de Janeiro with an amazing view from the rooftopterrace, a very good breakfast and a decent location for public transport from Santa Teresa. mini-vans pass the hostel which bring you to the metro, so no taxi is needed in Rio during the day, only at night.

Hostel Recanto Azul

Paraty, Brazil

A good hostel but during my stay in Eastern they were making some two extra bathrooms which are indeed needed. One is not enough when the hostel is full of people. If this is solved the facilities and the cleanliness might get a much higher score. English is a problem and it's usefull when you know some Portuguese/ Spanish.

Dear Bas van den Heuvel: Thank you for your helpfull comments. We have now completed the renovation and the two bathrooms are fully functioning with even a third one available for busy times. As for the language barrier we have also solved that issue ( English / Spanish / French spoken). So please feel free to visit even if you don´t speak a work of Portuguese ( we can even give you a basic portuguese crash course to help you on your journey). Happy travels and hope to see you soon

Retro Moldova Hostel

Chisinau, Moldova

A good hostel in Chisinau. Two remarks: 1. One shower including a toilet is not enough for the amount of beds. Advise is to add at least one toilet. 2. Rooms were hot during the night. Maybe if you put in each room a fan this might be solved.

Funny Dolphin Hostel

Sevastopol, Ukraine

A good hostel in Sevastopol. It's a little bit a pitty that the private rooms are separated from the dorm. So when travelling alone it's more difficult meeting other people which are travelling alone when you stay in a private room. The room was during the night hot. Maybe a fan for each room is a good solution.

Nothing special. They charge you $3 per hour for Wifi and $4 for renting a towel. Better charge a little bit more for a room instead of charging for everything. I've been in a lot of hostels and never had this experience. A better hostel in Melbourne is Habitat HQ.

A good hostel with a good location . Only in the weekends en in the nights it was in my opinion too quite in Montevideo also in the street with shops in front of the hostel (especially on Sunday). Everything was very clean. Only the pillow on the bed could be better. This was too small and too soft for me.

Stay away, worst experience ever! Rude staff. They didn\'t recognise my deposit as a payment. So had to pay 110 % (100 % to the hostel and not 90 %). When asking they become angry, arrogant and intimidating. In their opinion I was the first ´stupid´ tourist making complaints about this. At the hostel was shield on which they swear at the Lonely Planet. First behave yourself and then maybe you can complain about other companies.
