This isn't a party hostel, it's a hotel, so doesn't have 'common areas' as such. But it's awesome value for the money, private rooms for $12 with a/c is great, one street off the beach, and the staff were great, booked is taxi's (and sent them away for trying to charge too much). The rooms were clean and had everything you needed. Although ours lacked natural light, that's pretty insignificant as a complaint. Definitely recommend for the average backpacker

Great location, and great place to stay. Staff are friendly and helpful. Would happily stay here again!
great place to stay, always plenty of people about, and a quick skip to temple bar. recommend!
Reviews are based on experience, and our experience was terrible! We booked a private room, only to be put into a dorm- which was literally the size of a jail cell. There are not enough lockers for everyone in the room, nor was there room for 6 people, and the power points didnt even work. The showers, which suck, don't drain properly, and the water ran down the hall and flooded the dorm. After complaining we were told we would be moved, but this never happened. It's not worth the 5 euro's.
Great place to stay, very friendly. Free breakfast is handy. They helped us organise a tour through the desert and onto Marrakech- if you're in a group don't hesitate to barter the price of everything! all in all would recommend this hostel :-)
Pretty good hostel, close to the port if you're only here for a night. Rooms are clean and large enough, kitchen and roof top terrace are a plus. Pretty sure the receptionist was higher than most people in the medina, so be prepared to be patient.
Great hostel, close to the beach. Room had a balcony and lockers, was large enough to be comfortable. Staff are great, even if you have to get through with little spanish. It's hard to go past this hostel with the price of rooms offered
Actual doors don't lock, but there's lockers anyway. Lack of showers are a pain but fully equipped kitchen and good lounging area make up for anything else. Great location, probably some of the cheapest you'll find.
Great place to stay, close to the bus stop + Lounges to sleep on when you end up with someone snoring louder then a chainsaw.
Great stay, staff at home hostel (the check in place) can be frustrating, especially in times of need (e.g. wifi not working and needing to book the next leg of a trip). All in all, the apartments are great, would be better if you didnt have to check in through the hostel though
The hostel is huge, and in a pretty good spot. The common area is great to hang out (especially seeing as the rooms are small and cluttered). There are some ridiculous bits though, i.e. not being able to open your window, not being able to control your own A/C (so you either freeze or cook), the lights go out at midnight, and don't turn back on until the morning, the fridges in the kitchen don't keep anything cool etc... Free gym is a plus, free breakfast sucks.
Ive stayed at bobs 5 times in the past few years, and it's sad to say it has lost its charm. If you're looking for something comfortable, I wouldn't stay here. The stairs are terrible, the beds are shocking, the hostel is rarely clean, and the basement area is just a dutch oven. If you're in Amsterdam to get loose and party, then Bob's is alright, but there are better places to stay.
I'm not even sure this is a legitimate hostel. They are not equipped to be full. Clearly they had run out of pillow cases, so our pillows were slyly hidden under the sheet, and trust me, they weren't inviting. Good hostel for a cheap fly through, but not great if you're looking for a good nights sleep.
Great and cheap alternative to visit cinque terre. Rooms and beds were unexpectedly comfortable. Cannot rely on the bus schedule (both the public busses and campground one) but if you're not easily phased it wont bother you. Just be careful if you need to be somewhere on time, apparently all bus drivers stop working from midday to 2:30 pm.
Shower is barely big enough to stand in, rooms were full of mosquitos (dead ones on the wall that hadn't been cleaned in a long time) and live ones flying around. Hostel itself is in the hood, surrounded by hookers. Spend the extra $5 and stay closer to Duomo.
Came to stay for 2 nights, and still here a week later. This place is great, huge terrace under grape vines, close to the beach, the free breakfast and dinner (which are great) is value enough for the price you pay. Not to mention it is impossible not to be relaxed here. Great place, definitely recommend.
Good place to stay, but it's not a hostel. Just a budget hotel. Private rooms are good, air con, clothes line, balcony and enough room to move. No atmosphere in comparison to actual hostels, but relatively cheap and easy for a quick stopover.
Great hostel for the whole 'stay in a cave' experience, good value for money. Cave rooms are a bit damp, makes it a bit uncomfortable to sleep in, but i assume it is no different to other places. Staff were more than helpful in our stay and booking our on-going journey.
Brilliant Hostel. Bit of a walk across the bridge to Sultanahmet, but the staff make your stay as enjoyable as possible, taking us all out to local rooftop bars/clubs, and giving us great advice on where and what to eat. Big thank you to all the staff for making our stay memorable!
Chillout is a nice hostel, unless you're unfortunate enough to be squeezed into the 8 person dorm. Ive seen the inside of a jail cell with more room than this, not to mention the air-conditioning wasn't working. Thankfully we were only here for one night. Other than that, the staff are great and the hostel is clean, but it doesn't take much to make a bad impression
Shappy is an incredibly clean hostel, and the staff are always helpful, but it is definitely not the place to be if you're looking to party, with more children and families staying here than backpackers.
The only good thing about this accommodation is the proximity to the airport. Other than that it is hard to find and difficult to get to other parts of Mumbai e.g. Colaba. The rooms are very basic, and 'clean' is not a word i would use to describe them. In saying that, you cannot expect a great deal more from most accommodation in India, so if you just need an easy transit hotel, this place will suffice.
Had a great chill out area- could definitely do with some speakers though! The wifi was down for too long, and the mosquito's were a pain but this was the only real 'hostel' experience we have had in India, and overall it was a fantastic stay.
Great place to stay and surprisingly cheap. It's half way between the airport and main tourist attractions, and taxi's to and from are incredibly cheap. Full kitchen is grear, but also has 24 hour room service, which makes life really easy for tourists or lazy people, especially during ramadan. Would definitely stay here again!
Zorba's is ok for a one night stop over, the rooms were big enough, and the beds were comfy but i wouldnt stay here for too long.
Mina and her sons were great, eager to help out whenever needed, and the location is right near the beach. However the room was definitely smaller than expected, and disappointing that for the price paid there was only one double bed and two roll outs. Also, the kitchenette is hardly that, there isn't much room or many utensils to prepare or cook food. If your happy to live off pasta this won't be a problem, but you can get better value for money
Great place to stay, the location is great and the staff are incredibly helpful. The rooms could do with aircon in summer but other than that i cant complain about anything. Would definitely stay here again!
Not being able to drink in the hostel was a bit of a downer, and the walls are pretty thin between rooms. Its easy to get to though, and right near some pretty sweet markets. Worth checking out if you want a cheap bed for the night
I have stayed in many hostels and would glady stay again here! The staff (Renee in particular) were incredibly helpful right from the start in making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Free breakky is always a bonus when traveling on a budget and the location was awesome. Just prepare yourself for the free pubcrawl, its epic. All in all this hostel is fun and easy going, with all the facilities needed for a great stay in Queenstown. ENJOY!
