Excellent place with friendly staff. Got most of the things that a backpacker is looking for. I just wish it was in a location that felt more safe during the evening. The place itself is very safe.
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.
I guess this is a good place for being huge city. My room was good. The staff were almost constantly busy, but friendly. It was breakfast included, with I didn't eat. Be careful, there is no place to leave your bag if you arrive early or leave late, except in the stairs...
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.
Small place with a very friendly and helpful owner. Near the JR station and easy to find, maybe the hostel is on the "wrong" side of the tracks. Perfect place to stay for one or two nights.
Just 10 minutes walk from the train and bus station. Easy to find. Helpful staff. The rooms at entrance floor get some noice due to the showers (and hair driers) outside. Extramly clean place. Big showers.
Near the train station, just 5 minutes walk. Verý easy to find. 25 minutes walk to Peace park, or catch the tram. Friendly English speaking staff, gave helpful information. I liked the curtains around the bed. Nice showers. Maybe the rooftop could be used in more charming way.
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.
Perfect location, just 30 seconds walk from Nanjing Road and the metro station there. Very clean. About the security: The stair was directly inside the entrance so the staff had no control about who entered. But I can definitely recommend this place.
A huge place, big machine. Corridors as in prisons, with big numbers on the rooms. No real feel of a hostel. Big ambitions from the owners, but no character.
Nice rooms, very friendly staff and "eat as much as you want" breakfast.
Good common room and kitchen. Near railway station and the cable car.
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.
Excellent hostel and good staff. Good location, clean bathrooms and good showers, better then in most places I stayed. Friendly staff. Maybe small rooms, but quite normal. No lockers in the rooms.
The staff are great and doing a good job. I just wish that had a better location and property to work with. It's very near the bus station but the surroundings are not the best with some strange people walking around, or mostly standing there. Also no lockers in the rooms. The city Birmingham was a positive surprise for me.
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.
The staff very friendly, wrote instructions in Arabic for bus drivers in case I should need. Cheap place in very good locations, might take a few minutes to find the entrance. The rooms not in best conditions, my room was almost impossible to lock. The manager said he should upgrade the place within a few weeks. Easy to get a taxi to get to the normal buses for Petra. Easy walking distance to Citadel and Theatre.
Very modern hostel, good rooms, two computors with free internet. Generous free breakast - but they charge 3 euro for the linen – business á la Ryan Air. Surprise. Its 5 minues walk from the big square. Zaragoza is nice, small but a few hours visit was enough for me, nor so much to see. The square and the old fair.

Excellent location, claean and felt safe. Rooms good with big lockers. But the showers and toilets bad, the light went off automaticly very quickly and nowhere to put the clothes inside the showers.
Very nice place. All I missed was lockers in the room. Thanks! /Fredrik, Sweden
Good location, only a few 100 meters away from metro station and only a 2-3 stops to the area around Red Sqauare. The staff is very good and helpt me with several train tickets and other things. The registration fee is high in this place. Much higher then other places I visited in Russia. I can recommend Godzilla, clean, helphull staff and good lookers. /Fredrik, Sweden
