Decent hostel, nice that breakfast is included even if its only bread and jam. Not to far from downtown, and really close to some awesome thrift/charity shops.

Really cool place, very clean, not too far away from everything but we were driving. A little pricey for a private room, but worth the experience of staying in an old jail.

Ok stay, we stayed in the love shack, which is an old camper and smells like mildew. It was interesting and different, but overall I wouldn't stay here again. Staff were very friendly and location is good.

Great place!! It really felt like home or my grandmas cottage. Would definitely stay here again. Only downside is that the bathrooms are downstairs, so if you stay on the second floor you will have to walk down the stairs in the middle of the night.

Our smoke detector was broken, had issues checking out- no one was in reception at 8:30am, the bathrooms were filthy. And there was no breakfast- could even find a clean cup for coffee

Very basic hotel, but great place for the price. It was in a very central location, 15 min walk to the Eaton Center or Old Montreal. They give you towels too, which is nice when your used to bringing your own in hostels. I would definitely stay here again.

What a relaxing stay here!! We only stayed for 1 night, but it was totally worth the drive out. Beautiful and quiet location. The food was great, and Susan (the managers assistant) was amazingly helpful! I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away and relax in a serene, quiet environment.

This hostel was way too loud for me. I like somewhere were I can come in and relax, but there were so many people, and there was a bar downstairs, and what seemed like a club next door. The staff were very nice, and the breakfast and location were great. If you want a party hostel this is for you, if you want a quiet place to relax I would pick something smaller.

Staff was awesome!! Location was good sort of in between everything, there was no breakfast which forced us to look elsewhere but there are a couple places on the main road that were good. Nice view from our balcony.

Staff are very friendly, location is good and the breakfast (pancakes) was very tasty. We were on the first floor so we got to hear the goings on of other people and traffic, but at night everything gets quiet by 11.

Great location! Small room but very clean. Breakfast is small (coffee/tea and a muffin) so be prepared to buy groceries. The bar downstairs was loud but we couldn't hear it from our room, only in the tv area.

Overall I think that this hostel was not that bad if you want a cheap place to stay. The bathrooms could be cleaner, with new curtains that don't smell. The kitchens need more dishes and the internet only worked in the main area. However these things may be a small price to pay for the close vicinity to downtown, the cheap rates and the one very friendly guy Joe who helped us a lot with our planning.

New World St. Hostel

My favorite hostel of our trip! It was very clean, the staff were awesome (you could tell they liked their jobs), nice rooms and living area, and the breakfast was great. The owner was there to give us advice about where to go, and it was nice to see the staff so enthusiastic and energetic. If I every go to Warsaw again I would defiantly stay here. Also great location, right near the old town.


GlobArt Hostel

Krakow, Poland

I would not recommend this place. The staff were not very friendly or knowledgeable about the city. The building and elevator smelled like pee, and the bathrooms were damp and had mold growing. There also was no kitchen, no stove or oven, so we couldn't cook anything. The only nice thing was our room, we had a double so I can't comment on the dorms, but ours was nice. Good location near the train station and the old town, but there are others hostels near by that might be nicer.

Owner Comment (Hide)
We can't take responsibility for the building conditions, because it doesn't belong to us.

Great hotel! The rooms were nice, the bed was soft, the location was close to a subway stop and close to a main avenue, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was delicious. But because it was a hotel, there was no kitchen to use so be prepared to eat out or buy things that you can keep in your room.

Smart Russell Square

This was one of the worst hostels I have stayed at. It felt like a mental institution or prison, and was not at all somewhere you wanted to be. It was cheap, but if I had to do it again I would pay a little more for something better. The male staff were useless but a couple of the girls were nice. The male staff gave wrong info and didn't help when we had questions. The showers are in the basement, and you have to go through a maze to find them.I would not recommend this place to anyone

Casona Potosi Hostal

Staff were horrible, except one girl, who I dont know her name. They tried to make us pay double because we wouldn\'t sleep in a room without heating. Be aware that rooms 13 and 14 which are double rooms with a shared washroom dont have heating, everywhere else in the hostel has it. And in the winter it is way to cold to go without. We tried to find another place after the whole mess, but after fighting with the staff we ended up in a more expensive room, and only paid once. Big mess!!

Staff were very helpful, they went to the bus station and got us bus tickets. We had hot water every day, which to my surprise is not the norm in Peru. It was cold, but since being in a couple of places in Peru, I realize that nowhere has indoor heating. Just make sure you bring lots of warm clothes, the hostel also has extra blankets which really came in handy. They also had pancakes included for breakfast, and a tv to watch movies, and 2 computers with moderatly fast internet. Great hostal!

Great room! We stayed in a private room, which was low in cost, huge, clean, and it had a very comfortable bed and heater, which really came in handy. The locatation is great too, as it is 2 min walk away from the main square. Great hostel!

This hostel wasn´t the worst, but for such a high rating I was expecting alot more. The best part was the staff, which were very helpful and nice. However the bathroom was not very clean, and in the common areas people are allowed to smoke so it drifts into the room, and the kitchen. There were also people being loud until late at night. We got a private room, but it was right under a set of stairs and we were awoken several times in the early morning by people going up and down.
