Hotel Savonarola, Florence, Italy

18th Sep 2015

Great hotel! Our private room was quiet and very clean. Simple breakfast for 5 Euros (cereals/meats/yoghurt and coffee/juice). Room key remains at the desk when leaving (claim it when you return as often as you like). Hotel is about a 10-15 min walk to the Duomo and Piazza San Marco and to the nightlife (20 mins from train station). The best part: the owner, Riccardo Caponi. He is a fountain of info, extremely friendly and will answer all questions before you ask them (food/sights/etc.)

HI San Diego - Downtown, San Diego, USA

Great hostel! We stayed in a private room and enjoyed it very much. The room and bathroom ensuite were very clean. The kitchen was across from us and provided a nice breakfast every morning. Lots of travellers hang out there, so it's easy to meet people. The Pub-crawl was great as well but our leader left a bit early. Hostel location is downtown, so you have your pick of bars and restaurants. Front desk staff is usually helpful if you have questions. Check the desk for deal coupons.

Hiroshima Hana Hostel, Hiroshima, Japan
9.7
17th Apr 2014

A really great hostel located near the Hiroshima station. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and offered us a wealth of information on the city. They also invited us to an Okonomiyaki dinner held that evening with other backpackers. The environment is fun and friendly! The room was clean but a bit dated and the bathroom was small-- a recurring theme in Japan. WIFI was a bit spotty at times but better downstairs. Luggage storage is on every floor and tends to fill up quickly.

Thank you very much for staying with us and we appreciate your feedback. We recently empowered our Wi-fi access points for stronger connection! Also we will consider about more spacious luggage storage. We all hope to see you again.

Guest House Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan

16th Apr 2014

A really clean, well organised Guest House. The owner took the time to help us with our itinerary even before we checked in. Upon checking in, he took us on a tour of the Guest House and showed us all the facilities while explaining the rules. Shared bathroom areas are very clean as are the showers. The location is very good and a 10 minute walk to Kyoto station with buses nearby. Toji Temple is a 15 minute walk from the Guest House.

Likely the best hostel I have been to in Japan. The staff is very friendly, the site is very secure, the common room is very spacious and activities are planned very frequently. The rooms are very clean and the price is very reasonable. The shared bathrooms are very clean, as are the showers (soap and shampoo included). A main bus is nearby and the hostel is close to Kyoto Station. The restaurant provides breakfast everyday but the rooftop terrass closes early (due to noise).

Stayed in a private bunk bed room and was very pleased with the cleanliness of the place. Shared bathrooms were very clean, as were the showers. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hostel is conveniently located near a major shopping district. The hostel has plenty of maps and suggestions for sightseeing.

Asakusa Ryokan Toukaisou, Tokyo, Japan
9.1
11th Apr 2014

A very nice, quiet ryokan. The room was very clean but the bathroom was ridiculously small! Brushing your teeth might be a challenge, haha. The shower and tub is located next to the bathroom and is much more spacious! Futon beds are a bit uncomfortable but typical in Japan. Located near a metro and shopping district as well as plenty of restaurants. Asakusa is a very nice place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

A fantastic hotel located in Shinjuku! The staff is friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and the bathroom was just large enough to not feel too cramped. The futon beds were, as usual, uncomfortable, but that seems to be the theme in Japan. The location is perfect-- near a metro and many restaurants in one of the busiest areas of Tokyo. The housekeeping lady, the following morning, was very polite and friendly. Also, there is free juice in the lobby!

Ace Inn Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan

8th Apr 2014

A capsule hostel near Akebonobashi metro. The capsules themselves were quite clean and had an electrical outlet just outside. The shared bathroom had an unpleasant odour which lingered all the time. The showers required 100 Yen per 10 minutes which was very frustrating. It is the only hostel that I have visited that demands this, as all the others offered soap and shampoo too. The common room was quite dirty and dilapidated. No curfew but good for a 2 night stay, max. The staff is very friendly.

A&C Much More, Rome, Italy

An excellent Bed and Breakfast! It is about 5-10 mins from Termini station. Security is great (3 access keys provided) and the rooms are very clean! The housekeeping is fantastic and the staff, including Amerigo, the elder gentleman and another kind lady are very helpful. The staff is able to help in planning any trips outside of Rome. The only cons: the showerhead provides a weak flow and people outside in the courtyard can be a bit noisy. I highly recommend this place! Do not miss this!

We stayed at the Arrow Motel next to the Driftwood Inn on Banff Ave. Good hotel and excellent location. Staff is friendly and were kind enough to cancel one night since we arrived late due to a cancelled flight. A bit disappointed that the electricity went out on the morning we planned to leave. I would recommend this place for people seeking a decent hotel for a decent price.

Wombats City Hostel Berlin, Berlin, Germany

20th Jan 2012

Fantastic hostel! Super clean, great place to meet travellers and great location! I would, however, avoid the breakfast. It's expensive at 3.70 Euros considering the poor selection and quality of the food. Save your cash and go down the street to much better eateries. Otherwise, the hostel provides awesome tours and a really cool bar at the top floor. Would highly recommend this place! Note: Free WIFI is in lobby only and not available in the rooms.

A truly fantastic hostel! Rooms are incredibly clean and decently sized. Location is fantastic (next to Rosa-Luxemberg Platz metro) as well as Alte Schonhause Str. which has many restaurants, bars and other conveniences. Activities for sightseeing are in abundance as well as a multitude of other excursions. WomBar is great and a fun place to go! Drinks could be a bit cheaper though... Staff is pretty friendly and ready to respond to your needs. WIFI in the rooms would nice-- lobby gets busy!

Hostel is conveniently located next to Gare du Nord and metro Anvers. Staff is friendly and breakfast is good. Free WIFI is a nice bonus, but we were given 8 hours worth for the entirety of our stay and we had to stay in the lobby to use it. Rooms are clean but typically small. Bathroom shower was annoying, particularly since the drain didn't work too well and the curtain was the only line of defense from keeping the water from pouring onto the floor. Otherwise, great neighbourhood and hostel.

We stayed in a private room at the Fitzgerald across from the Adelaide. Great location and friendly staff. Room was a bit warm, but otherwise clean and ideal for our needs. A small fridge would have been great! Would definitely recommend this hostel!

We stayed only 1 night in a private room but this hostel was great! Clean room and friendly staff-- definitely worth the stay! Everyone had to present their access cards before entering which made the place feel very secure. Room had some nice little bonuses, including a TV and fridge. Highly recommended!
