Very good all round. Excellent facilities. A bit quiet, not a party hostel but then who goes to Buffalo for a party?
Very nice hostel, which is good because there aren't too many others in Austin. I walked from the Amtrak with my backpack because I'm hardcore :-) but I recommend the bus/taxi options to others. Like all HI hostels this place is perhaps a little too square and sedate for some...no alcohol is allowed indoors and it's definitely not a party hostel. But it's a good, clean, secure place to stay. The piano is in tune, very rare for a hostel!
I liked this place. It's fairly new and the staff are all obviously keen to make it work. However I overheard a lot of staff talk about plans for the hostel: there was lots of talk about 'vision' and 'concept' and rather less attention paid to just making things work properly. Check-in and check-out were both rather vague and drawn-out processes. Start with the basics guys! No real complaints though.
I got here straight from LAX. The location is great, right next to the beach. The hostel attracts a lot of surfer dudes, friendly and chilled-out types. I think it's more suited to solo travellers (like me) than big groups.
Very clean, secure and well-equipped. It's definitely not bohemian, perhaps a little corporate in its atmosphere, but there's nothing wrong with that per se.
Definitely recommended. The owners believe in what they do and they extend a friendly welcome. It's a quiet place and best suited to solo travellers (like me) or couples, rather than groups. Location is excellent, just off 'Red Square'.
I'd recommend this hostel. The location is great - right next to Masjid Jamek station - and it's a clean, friendly, secure place.
This place is great value for what you get: and what you get is a tiny but clean and completely secure and well-equipped room to yourself, right in the middle of Kowloon. If you want luxury then you're gonna have to pay for it elsewhere - but if you just want somewhere to crash then this is great. It's not really a hostel, it's a micro-hotel.
Excellent hostel. The location is great - within walking distance of the main bus station, even with the backpack - and the barbecue was fantastic and great value, with great wine thrown in. Very helpful staff too. Recommended highly.
Very nice hostel, lots of character. The location isn't 100% ideal but it's only a short walk to the subway which will quickly take you just about anywhere. Very nice kitchen and terrace...not a huge party hostel, you'll need to go out if you want to hit the bar, but that's not a complaint.
This is a good hostel with good facilities and the staff were friendly and helpful to me. My only complaint was that the whole place seemed to be freezing cold - dorms and common areas alike. (I stayed in mid February). The hostel has a few different blocks and maybe I was in the colder one of the two? I realise Cusco isn't warm in February but a little bit of heating would have been nice!
Excellent location for the Centro Historico and public transport. It's a very charming and grand old building with tremendous character. It's fairly quiet, a bit big and empty, not a party hostel, and well suited to slightly older travellers looking to relax rather than young gap-year types looking to party all night. Personally I loved it.
Definitely a party hostel - there are always people in the bar and it's very lively at night, although I didn't have any difficulty getting to sleep. Great location in Miraflores, tons of restaurants around, although you'll need a bus or a taxi to get to the Centro Historico. Very good on the whole but definitely better for young party types than for older travellers (I'm kind of teetering between the two!)
I enjoyed my stay here. I'd say it's more of a pension than a hostel, but that's not a bad thing. Better for solo travellers and families than most hostels. I did have a few bed bugs but nothing too bad. Nice and secure and an excellent location in one of South America's prettiest tows. Also the proprietess was very understanding when I rolled in at about 1.30am after my bus was delayed!
Very friendly and helpful staff, good location, nice bar. The pool table could be slightly flatter though! Also I stayed in one of two 4-bed dorms downstairs which really comprised one big 8-bed dorm because the partition was very thin and not at all soundproof. On the whole though it's a good secure hostel and great value, especially when the drinks are 2 for 1, which they seem to be most of the time!
Excellent location - right in the middle of town. Only complaint is that we were kicked out of our room at 10.30 which is just a little bit too early for an all-night party city like Amsterdam! Otherwise fine.
