Nice and quite area just a few blocks från Victoria station. I got a room in the building next to the ”reception”. Easy to find. There is a supermarket 30 seconds away, perfect for breakfast. Walking distance to most of central London. My room had a lot of Ikea-feeling and if the neighbors had been loud, then I would have had a sleepless night. But I had 2 nights with good value for the money spent.

One of the Top 10 hostels I have visited around the world (I guess I visited a few hundreds). Prefect place to meet and share experiences with other travelers. Very modern place. Comfortable beds, clean wc and showers (I think they clean them every 30 minutes!). The location is good. The staff is very helpful and give away good and free maps. By far the best breakfast I had during my trip around The Stans.

New and very clean hostel. Every bed has its own electric sock, lamp – and also curtain. The roof terrace is fantastic. Nice view of the mountains and the city. The security could be better. No lockers in the room (other place). My room was in 10th floor (reception at 11th), so anyone could easily get in there from elevator/stairs/without passing the reception. The staff was friendly, but could have tried harder to help me find a tour to the canyon. The hostel easy to find from "airport bus".

Perfect place to meet other travellers. Walking distance from the airport for the traveller who wants to save a few cents... The rooms are quite simple. No lockers, not so many places for electric plugs, no lamps for reading. The staff very helpful, and speaks good English. Don't plan to stay many days for Dushambe. You can discover the city easy in half a day..

Excellent hostel. Good location. Inside the old town and in the directions of the train and bus station. The staff helps with schedule for buses and trains and with a lot more. My only negative comment is bathrooms. It was every small – at least the one I visited, maybe there was more.

The old lady is very friendly and charming. I booked two nights here, one in the beginning of my trip and one in the end, but only used one. The beds are just next to each other in the dorm and no floor space. And strange security. There are a lot of options around. I stayed in a place called "Room Service" for my last evening. There I got a small private room (with AC, shower, TV) for good value, 25 US dollars. Both places are in excellent locations and I felt very safe also during dark hours.

One of the worst places I stayed during my 8 week trip in the Caribbean. Maybe it would have been better if I stayed in the main building. It was the bartender that seemed to take care of everything. The owner didn't ´care. He was just collecting the money. Most of the people that stayed at the place when I was there was not "normal" travellers. They was just there waiting for their next job. Strange place. But good location and cheap. Easy to catch a minibus to go to other places.

Not really close to the action. This is nice countryside. The place is easy to reach and is near the end stop for one of the more frequent bus lines. The place is upon a hill and you need to climb some stairs to reach your room. The staff is very helpful. The place offers a wonderful view of the ocean. You will reach the beach by walking 10 minutes, thru a nearby resort (that was totally empty when i was there).

Excellent hotel. Good price very near a perfect beach. easy to find if you are coming from the airport (it might look complicated on the map). The minibuses from the airport will drop you a few minutes walk away. I have nothing bad to say about this place. I just wish I had the opportunity to stay a few days more.

A very nice pool and a good restaurant. Location is good. Rooms are really quite boring, but okey. Some people in the staff in not so interested in therr job. One young man answered several of my question - and the information turned out to be wrong most of the times. The owner (?) helped me with transportation to Georgetown (Guyana) and she was very friendly.

Good location just a few minutes away from the train and bus station. One of the women in the reception acted like a machine and that she didn't like customers. But I got helpful information about the mountains and trekkings. The hostel is very nice and clean, sometimes it feels like a small design hotel.

Nice place, but the location is not near either train station or any of the "highlights" of the city. Very friendly staff and nice building. 10-15 minutes walk to down town. The place is easy to find from the train station, just catch the tram outside and go fo a few stops. Then walk for 3 minutes, easy to find along the small river.

This is the first time I given 'excellent' in all the categories (I think I made about 15 reviews at website). One of the best hostels I stayed ever (I stayed in far more then hundred). The place looked new but had some charm. Just 30 second walk from the the beach (the place a little difficult to find, I had to walk looking for 2 minutes). Locker in the room. Good toilets and showers. English speaking staff. I think it was breakfast included, but I didn't taste.

A little difficult to find, print a close up map of the surroundings, from the metro station. Extremely small combined toilets/showers. Even the double size would still be small. Friendly staff, even if it was difficult to know who worked there, no "real" reception. Good area and good security, lockers provided in the rooms. Perfect location for party (but I stayed inside, had to get up early both mornings).

Nice owner at this place. She had made a map of the surroundings and showed where things got be found. Easy to find, just remember the number. Just one minute from the stop for the airport bus and 3-4 minutes to the metro station. The best facilities are in the main building (several guidebooks for Taiwan available when I visited). I stayed in a building 30 seconds away and it was okey.

Huge machine, too big and unpersonal. The shower facilities were very basic. No free lockers. Very short beds (15-20 cm shorter than a average bed!). But the curtains on each bed is something that other hostels could copy! The place cleaned very regularly. The hostel has perfect location, just around the corner from the metro station, on the Piccadilly line. Good security by the entrance. But there are much better hostels in London, with better value for money.

The owners are doing a great job. Nice rooms, don't forget to visit the rooftop. Its some distance to the entrance for Petra. Walking down there is easy, but for getting back to the hostel/hotel its a good idea to get a taxi (I never paid more than 1 JD). Its a few supermarkets and restaurants around the place so its good place for the evenings and a good view of the mountains. About Petra, I bought a 3-day entrance pass, but I was ambitious and saw most of the area in one day.
