Atmosphere bit more like a hotel than like a hostel - missed a bit communal areas where to meet other travellers: there's only the open rooftop bar, which was mainly empty (since it was rainy& cold, people were either in their rooms or out - no living room in hostel). Other than that, nice clean rooms, good bathroom, good location
Absolutely loved this place!! Great rooms (loved to finally have a single, for only 50yuan!), great communal areas, very helpful staff.. and location plus rooftop terrace are simply phenomenal. Wish I could have stayed longer!!
Nice place to hang out - a little bit out of the way (it's over 30 mins walk to Yangshuo, and not in a super nice / interesting location either), but it's walkeable and they give you bikes free after 6pm - good to communte at night. Guess in summer this place is awesome, was a bit on the quiet side now
Absolutely superb hostel, they're doing it right- super friendly staff, very cool vibe, great common area and great dorms (with curtain and en suite). Bit out of the way, but well-connected by bus 10.
Awesome place to stay - the rooftop terrace overlooking the mosque is phenomenal. The rooms are good too - my only complaint are the poor bathroom facilities. No connected sink to wash your hands - WTF. Also, more than once found the toilets in a disgusting state. Some people might like the tiny kitchen, but since food is so plenty & cheap in Kashgar, why not use it as bathroom space?!?!?
Liked it so much that I came back to hang out a night before my flight - very funky communal area, looks like a factory hall with tables and a diwan. Very very lovely staff & managers :-)
Fantastic friendly place with a lovely owner! Hostel is an appartment in one of those sovjet-style housing blocks; feels more like a small appartment home than a hostel, and everything is spotlessly clean. Easy to chat to people and get tours started - would definately recommend that place!
The place is a good base to meet other travellers for tours and is conveniently located. BUT very unpleasant stay: I booked for a week and wanted to cancel 4 days right upon check-in - but they demanded full payment for the week, and got incredibly rude when I attempted to discuss it (after all they resold my bed and made double money!!) Rude staff, only 1 working shower, crazy loud from 7am onwards (staff runs into rooms 7.30am and makes beds loudly chatting while everyone is still sleeping)
Excellent base to explore Beijing, can't praise staff enough - you guys rock! (and help everyone out soooo much). They have a very fun bar, good to catch up with other travellers. Only point of complaint: said bar is super loud, so if you are on ground level and want to have an early night... tough luck.
Had an absolutely wonderful time in Pentlands - was my home for almost 2 months, and would definately go back when in NZ! Staff is awesome, always a good crowd of people, and can't praise those 5 great private bathrooms enough :-) Thanks Vinnie and John!
OK enough for a night's stay after or before your flight. Bit rundown, no real hang-out space, but nice staff & free basic breakfast
No customer comment
Great hostel - quite out of the way from the downtown area (which is easily accessible by bus tho), but social, lively and cozy with super-friendly frontdesk staff! (thanks Steve, Charlotte & Ari!)
One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in!! Awesome crowd, awesome staff, awesome breakfast.. and GREAT facilities (plenty of spacious single bathrooms, comfy beds, TV lounge. Special kudos to Luke, Kara and especially owner Nancy, who went out of her way to help guests Way out of the city, but Fremont is the Center of the Universe anyway.
They don't exaggerate, this entire hostel feels like a home away from home!! The living room is super-cozy, the entire hostel smallish for a really good atmosphere with your fellow travellers, and it has Russ, best ever St Paddy's day organisator and pancake man in the morning to start you for the day. Thanks for the good times :)
Lovely place, like a home away from home, thanks to the staff which is hangig out with the backpackers all day. Thanks so much for those great days, hope to be back!
Facilitywise and overall a great hostel. Although very disorganized, had to change my bed 5x because of misbookings. Not cool to get home from drinking at 12am and find your stuff in a bin-bag by the reception. Twice. Staff was great & friendly - except that lady working during the day, who was disgracefully rude to everyone (staff as well as clients).
Man, I hated this place. Pumping loud music all day and nowhere to retreat, very poor common area (you can only hang out in the lobby which is as loud as a club), nothing in kitchen (not even cups & plates) Awesome friendly staff tho, and good to meet people. Guess it depends if you are after nonstop clubbing, or want a chill place
Very social place & great to meet people, funky hostel - bit messy & rundown tho. The toilets are annoying: only 2 in the building and usually occupied as they double as showers, so you have to march across the courtyard to 2 outdoor unisex ones.
Loved this place, everything you would want in a hostel: great cozy common area, clean, super spacious airy rooms, awesome staff and great vibe
Funky fun place, great social vibe and right at the beach! Also loved the rooms: big, spacious, with lockers, baskets for stuff and bed-curtains for privacy. Booked 3 nights, stayed a week and wished we could stay longer :) Only thing I missed was a comfy couch area to hang out, but plenty of plastic benches in front and back outside of the hostel
Loud, fun and central, always some action in the bar downstairs. Good place to meet people. Found the common area a bit small/ uncomfortable (aka, not very comfy to hang out as alternative to the over-crowded bar) Quite noisy - great if you are out for party, not so great if you are after sth more quiet
Right at the airport, more a business hotel with bunk beds. No kitchen. Great breakfast buffet and sauna - a great choice to catch an early morning flight
Awesome and charming hostel with heaps of character and great friendly staff! Thanks for everything, we loved our stay with you! The Germans and Hungarians from Ireland :)
What a friendly homely place to stay in KL! The staff was awesomely friendly (thanks again Hadi!), airy rooms, very clean & secure, free brekkie included - I'll surely return if again in KL!
Loved it! The room was tiny but cozy, the breakfast excellent and the ship location awesome.
Nice place to stay - comfy room, good showers, not too far from center, very friendly owner - and first hostel with table service at breakfast! (the 2€ brekkie is great value!!)
We had an excellent stay here!! As mentioned before, a bit scary from the outside, but as soon you step in, no worries: warm, clean, comfy tidy dorms and superfriendly and helpful owners. Not too far from the city center, like only 200m from the main street!
Not too special, but clean & a good priced choice, in walking distance to the city (15 minutes, 20 temple bar). The place is a labyrinth, loved the winding tiny walkways - my friend with the big luggage did NOT :-)
small, quiet, central location, very friendly owner
Excellent value for money, had a huge nice room with double bed for dorm prices. A little bit far away, but the bus connection is very good, so you can be in Venice within 20 mins. The blankets were a bit thin with no extra one - not so good as it was freezing
