Already reviewed it: Best hostel I've stayed at, and I've been to over 40 countries. Only downside is the location isn't perfect, but the enormous roof terrace etc. is incredible!
THE best hostel I've ever stayed at! Only slight downside is that the location is okay, but not great. Don't let the cab driver have RM confused w The Reggae House on the same street. Enormous roof terrace w pool table, bar, bbq, huge space for dancing and a view of the Petronas Towers and KL Tower. Great beds w socket, lamp and hidden locker (in the wall, behind the mirror) by each pillow. Hot showers in clean bathrooms. Friendly staff. Wifi. Great roof party also w ppl not staying there!
One of the best hostels in the world! Only downside it's nowhere near anything. In Jakarta you have to take a taxi or bajaj no matter where you're going from the hostel. Walking is pointless. Great roof terrace w an ingenious music solution that allows guests to plug in their phones and play their own music. Decent bathrooms, lockers in rooms, sockets by every pillow (!), pool table etc. Separate wifi on the roof terrace! Friendly staff. Hard to find for the crappy Indonesian cab drivers
Short tuktuk ride (or approx 20 min walk ) to bar area. Lockers in dorms: 1 per bed. Helpful staff that will take guests out for, for example, beer pong at Playhouse. Nice little porch where ppl get to know each other over beers from the neighbouring exchange shop. Good sushi place 15 metres away.
Basically No location in KK is good since there is no city centre. Or, that tiny area IS the city centre in which case it's a sad state of affairs. NBC is close to a tiny bar that always had westerners in it; a two story restaurant (Upperstar) that'll show Premier League football w commentary if you ask them to; plus department store Suriah Sabah w a cinema in it. Common room by reception. Balcony w table/chairs. Hot private room w/o ac. Hot showers which is a plus. Beach too far to walk to.
Basically a hotel. Had private bathroom, tv, safe, fridge, free shampoo/bath gel. Room cleaned daily. Friendly staff. You have to walk 10 mins to bars. Good air condition - room was cool all the time.

Can't remember having any lockers in our 3 bed room which would be a problem if you stay there w strangers. Good loc on KSR.
We hard time finding it despite taking a cab. Use the map they provide (insider tip) cause cab drivers in Korea have generally no clue where anything is. We had our own key to the room but no lockers. Okay shower and WC. Small porch outside the reception. Great staff. Close to a corner shop but a bit far from the subway but when you reach it you only walk for a few more minutes and you suddenly notice you've entered Hongdae's bar district.
No staff there when we arrived. Called the owner and got the door code. We had the place to ourselves nearly the entire stay. A bit surreal. No staff worked there, this guy only came by to collect the money once. No other guests. Kinda cool actually. Roof terrace in central Daegu, 5 mins walk from the bar and club district. Couldn't lock our dorm door when we left, only from the inside. Okay WC, but weak shower. No lockers. Kitchen. TV. Okay bunkbeds. Might be hard to find. Would stay again.
Location is good by Busan standards, i.e. ten minutes walk from the subway station that is 1 stop from the city's main expat bar area/the Kyungsung-Pukyung Univ. area. Great staff, but weak showers, laundry service and wifi, but our room was unlockable (?). Good small safety lockers for purses and items of that size. Recycling and nice kitchen.
Great atmosphere, nice and clean, and most of all friendly and helpful staff who gladly show you a good time. Would definitely revisit!
No lockers in room, but good key card system to get to the rooms. A bit hard to find, but when you know your way you'll reach the centre in a few mins! Good staff, nothing out of the ordinary but at the same time flawless. Didn't see any good common area. Nothing wrong with the cleanliness. 25 Euro / night is good for a hostel of this calibre, centrally located in a western European city. AND! --> Sockets by every bed! = you can charge phone/laptop as you use them, lying in your bed! Fantastic!
A couple mins walk from the Spichernstrasse metro station. Neil, Alex and the rest of the staff were absolutely phenomenal! Nice seating area outside the reception (where you always met ppl), you can buy beer (1 Euro a bottle!) and other drinks in the reception, the place was clean, great bathrooms, free wi-fi, free computers, free coofee every morning, great door code/key card system, but no lockers in our room and the reception was closed for a few hours every night/morning.
Approx. 2 mins to the subway but not central, friendly staff, great facilities: steam sauna, gym, fridge in the (at least our) room, decent bathrooms in the corridor. No real coomon area though, so not the first place you'll meet new friends at, no lockers in our room, and since it's a christian hostel alcoholic beverages are banned (never mind, just hide your bottles and cans) and certain websites are blocked from the wifi, which is absolutely ridiculous!
Super location! Friendly staff, nice bathrooms/showers, luggage room. I didn't use any locker but I recall seeing lockers in my dorm. Literally a stone throw from Lebowski Bar on the same street and other places recommended in the Reykjavík guide I read on the bus from Keflavík. This is where I'll be staying if I go back to Reykjavik.
Always stay at one ot the Hatters while in Manchester. This is the slightly better located of the two. Always friendly staff, clean, lockers in room and close to Manch. Piccadilly and Arndale/The Printworks.
Truly great hostel which is really more like a hotel, apart from the dorms naturally. It has its own bar with a big screen behind the bar, showing Premier League football, and also a pool table. Not too far from the central station and Sauchiehall street.
Nice hostel, fairly close to Waverley (Central) station and even closer to a bunch of bars. Friendly staff, lockers in the dorm. No complaints! (even a ginger dude at the reception when we arrived, what more can you ask for when you come to Scotland right?)
Top notch! Super friendly staff, almost apologizing for being alive :) When my friend and I needed help they printed maps for us and went out their way to help us. Clean room and free wifi, toothbrushes, toothpaste and soap was waiting for us in the bathroom. A bit unusual sleeping on mattresses on the floor, but we slept like babies. Approx. 15 mins walk to the part of Shinjuku where the action is. McDonald's 2-3 mins walk away - perfect when hungover. Same distance to the subway. Very silent.
Roof terrace, an alternate way of sleeping (despite the fact that sleeping in what can be described narrow boxes and you have blankets instead of regular covers I slept like a baby), security lockers, great staff, close to a lively area and ridiculously cheap: 9 USD per night! I like to try new hostels if I return to places but I might just choose Base Camp again if I go back to Seoul.
Cool hostel with artworks covering the huge walls and a nice little roof terrace. Safe, but no AC and not the cleanest place. Often toilet paper was missing and no one bothered to fix the torn shower curtain, despite the fact that the door leading in to that shower was unlockable. Most of the staff was great (and said nothing),

Great staff, decent location (think i saw one or two bars nearby, but the best restaurant/bar area is Bellavista which is a cab ride away) right by Bellas Artes tube station and close to Plaza de Armas. Nice little common area w pool table, bar and couches. There is a roof terrace too, but I never saw it. Safe and clean, but our room was boiling hot. Guess there’s no AC. Would stay there again!

Is supposedly located in a party area, but from what I've heard Hongdae is better for partying than Itaewon is. Had a hard time finding night clubs in Itaewon. Nice hostel though, free internet, nice bathroom, nice little common area with a tv and a couch. Nice roof terrace with a nice view! All subway systems in Korea are fantastic, so walk 10 mins from IS@K to the station and you're only minutes away from everything! The security lockers won't fit really big backpacks.
Great place! Most of all I like their great sense of security and their inventiveness. They have security lockers for everybody AND cords through the back of each locker, so that you can charge your phone (ot whatever) inside your locker, without having to worry about people snatching it. Simply fantastic! Great staff, apart from that US-Russian girl, who had a bit of an attitude. Ok location, no good bars nearby, but just take the subway a few stops! Free internet, nice bathroom, clean!
No lockers in this dorm either (just like the other Hatters in Manch), which makes it slightly easier for ppl to snatch your belongings, and it's kind of a fuzz to keep all your stuff at the reception in order to feel safe. Was given a certain bed and the guy pointed out how important it is to stick to that bed. Funny then how I got to the room and the bad was taken. Asked the guy at the reception what this was all about and he replied "Uh, I guess you can just pick any bed." Otherwise great!
Hard to find, but once you've found it you'll see it's really close to the centre - Piccadilly Gardens. We were 4 guys sharing a 4 bed room, so we never paid any attention to the fact that was actually not a single safety locker in our room. Really bad, there should be in case you share the room w strangers! Also suddenly there was a 5th bed in there (which got us worried considering the lack of safety lockers). The staff was a bit confused, but nice and got it out of there. Great w key cards!
Just stayed one night and spent basically no time at the hostel, since i was either walking around Oxford or at a restaurant or partying at The Bridge. Nice hostel though, as few mins walk from the main bus/train terminal, 4 digit code to enter the building and then each room is accessed with a key card that you're given when you're checking in. Small locker to put your most important belongings. TV room, computers, wifi, games and a supercool little roof terrace (no view over the town though)!
Great location, close to where the airport coach drops you off. Near bars, souvenir shops and fairly close to the Guinness brewery. The dorm room was never locked, but every bed had two metal boxes under them and you can borrow a pad lock at the reception. The lights in the dorm bathroom didn't work at night for some reason, very poor. 10 euro per night in the 18 bed dorm, so THE place if you're just backpacking and rather spend dough on Guinness souvenires than accomodation.
Far from everything, but the tram takes you to the city centre fairly quick. 2 computers for the whole \"hotel\" and there\'s basically nothing nearby, apart from a supermarket that closes too early. The only fun you\'ll have is with the ppl inside your own dorm room, there\'s no good common area. The staff weren\'t too friendly. No lockers in the dorm room, so fingers crossed...
Nothing of interest nearby, but great coomon room where we watched movies, drank beer (that you can buy at the reception) and met new ppl! We had bed bugs, but we got a new room and the staff even smeared tiger balm all over our backs! Not the place to stay if you wanna explore Phuket, because of its bad location, but the place to stay if you\'re just spending one night in Phuket, looking for travel buddies. I left with 3 new friends whom I went to Koh Phi Phi with =)
