Die Wohngemeinschaft, Cologne, Germany

25th Jun 2016

By far the most luxurious hostel I have visited in my life. Huge beds and excellent facilities, as well as very good security. Location is not right in the city centre, but major attractions can be reached in 20 mins walk. The bar at the bottom of the building is an addition to the hostel as it gets quite crowded at weekends offering opportunities to mix with locals. The price is a bit above the average of hostels mirroring the quality you get: this is more a hybrid between hostel and a hotel.

Hlemmur Square, Reykjavik, Iceland

4th Aug 2016

Apart from the great location in front of urban bus station and close to downtown Reykjavík, there are not positive points about this hostel. A list of things not working: room of the dorm (first room not closing, second one handle broken), socket over my bed, no washing liquid for dishes. Generally quite filthy and smelly. Kitchens too small for the amount of guests. Bathrooms are ok on the other hand as well as the excellent luggage storage. You can definitely find better hostels in town.

Belford Hostel, Edinburgh, Scotland
8.0
29th Aug 2015

Belford Hostel has the unique feature of being a former church, which gives it a unique atmosphere. Excellent security, location is not super central but only 15 mins to city centre. Prices are slightly high, but this is probably because we travelled during the Fringe Festival. Breakfast is 1 pound only and I advice to take advantage of it. On the other hand they charge you for luggage storage, which is something that really bothers. Overall a good hostel to stay at, but not excellent.

Royal Mile Backpackers, Edinburgh, Scotland
9.7
2nd Jul 2015

Excellent location on the Royal Mile in the heart of Edinburgh city centre, extremely secure and with very helpful and friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Only negative point is that common areas are a little bit small and narrow however guests can take advantage of facilities of their twin hostel which is literally across the road and offer plenty of space. Overall strongly recommended.

Excellent location right in the city centre, very nice common areas with plenty of opportunities to meet new people, great atmosphere. I've been to other hostels in Edinburgh and I would definitely reccomend High Street!!

Gongkaew Chiangmai Home, Chiang Mai, Thailand
10.0
23rd Nov 2013

This place is amazing. The rooms are nice and well-furnished, the garden and the common area are great to relax and look like a resort. Gognkaew is centrally located and within walking distance from all sightseeing attractions. But the most fantastic thing about this place is the staff: our flight was delayed and we arrived at 3 am. Moreover our luggage has been lost from the air company. At 3.15 am they provided us t-shirts and shorts for the elephant camp we had booked for the following day.

Roof View Place, Bangkok, Thailand
7.1
19th Nov 2013

Roof View Place is ok, but nothing special. It is located in a quiet street away from the noise of Bangkok, but it is close to Khao San Road and to the Chao Praya Express stop. If you are concerned about security, Roof View is an excellent option since there is always somebody at the reception and the main door is locked at night. The main negative point is the staff; info/ tours they suggest are usually more expensive than other tours you can find just walking around the neighborhood. Moreover

It's ok if you just have to spend one night in heathrow waiting for your flight otherwise I wouldn't recommend it since it's far away from London city. On the other hand it's strongly advisable for those who are leaving from heathrow early in the morning: you can catch a bus and you reach the airport in 20 minutes whereas the tube doesn't run until 5 am. The owner is friendly.

Great location, you're within walking distances from all sightseeings but also from bars and restaurants. We never felt unsafe even when coming back late at night; moreover there is somebody 24 hrs a day at the reception. The staff is really helpful: they managed to change our robben island booking and woke us up on our last early morning!!

Riad Verus, Fez, Morocco
9.7
5th Oct 2010

great place to stay!!set in a traditional restored moroccan house,riad verus is centrally located in the medina but it is far from the crowd of main streets..the young staff is very helpful and involving. moreover they often play drums on the roof in the evenings. rooms are spacious and clean, facing the central courtyard. there are no lockers on the doors but we always felt secure since there is always a guy that opens the entrance to the riad. strongly advice staying at this riad!!!

dar maada is a wonderful place to stay..there are no negative things to say about it!ideal location close to the main square and the souks in a quite street, it is a good place both to explore the medina and to have rest from the crowd. gilles is a great host: he gave us useful advice about the city and was alwayshelpful; he even kept there our luggages during our 3days tour to the desert. it is also secure since you get the keys of the riad, clean and has a competitive price!STRONGLY ADVICE IT

excellent place to stay!!perfectly located in the heart of the medina, but away from the crowded streets, riad verus is a magnificient restored traditional moroccan house..the young staff is helpful, breakfast and mint tea are super, rooms are big and clean..the guys of the riad sometimes also play berber music on the roof in the evenings, which is a nice experience!!only small negative point: quite difficult to find the first time, but overall I strongly advice this riad!!

thanks for your kind comments and we are so pleased to hear you thought the staff were helpful and enjoyed our company. it is always fun to involve clients in the berber evenings on our terrace. sorry you found it hard to find the Riad in the first place, with all the names of streets in Arabic i can imagine it was a nightmare, on the front page there are directions on how to find us and our phone number. all the best guys
