Itaca Hostel, Barcelona, Spain

A friendly little hostel at an unbeatable location in Barcelona; near the cathedral, the Plaça de Catalunya and countless bars and eateries. Its staff is very hospitable and its amenities are top-notch, too. Highly recommended!

MEININGER Brussels City Center, Brussels, Belgium
7.7
3rd Oct 2015

A massive place offering spotless and comfortable rooms with en-suite bathrooms. The amenities are top-notch, so expect to pay above average. The location in a seedy area of Brussels at a good 20 minutes' walk from the city centre could definitely have been better. My advice: don't head further into Sint-Jans-Molenbeek, but cross the canal into Brussels instead. In addition, this place seems to attract many school groups. Except for the breakfast, I think this place offers great value for money.

Backstay Hostel Ghent, Gent, Belgium
9.1
7th Aug 2015

Although I stayed here only for one night, I enjoyed my stay. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, yet I found mine to be somewhat small and dark. Breakfast was great and so was the outdoor terrace. I would definitely stay at the Backstay Hostel again.

Snuffel Hostel, Bruges, Belgium
9.4
5th Aug 2015

A splendid hostel at a 10 minutes' walk from the central square. The newly opened building is really well-designed, offering clean, spacious and quiet rooms as well as top-notch amenities, such as a lovely courtyard terrace and a fun bar. Minor points include the rather mediocre breakfast and the absence of clothing hooks in the bathroom. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my stay at the Snuffel Hostel and can highly recommended it.

Casa Gracia Barcelona Hostel, Barcelona, Spain

23rd May 2015

A large and lively hostel with a stylish interior and daily activities. It seems to attract many groups of various ages, making it not the best place for individual travellers. In addition, the rooms are clean yet the ones facing the street are very noisy. The fantastic location definitely deserves to be mentioned. Overall, I think the Casa Gracia Hostel offers a good value for money.

Drift BnB Colombo, Colombo, Sri Lanka

15th Apr 2015

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Drift BnB. I found it to be a charming and tastefully designed hostel that is kept spotlessly clean. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds, lockers and airconditioning (hurray for that!). There is an excellent bus connection with the city centre and there are shops and eateries aplenty in the vicinity (ask the staff for the nifty little map). The Drift BnB comes highly recommended!

Pedlar's Inn Hostel, Galle, Sri Lanka

A charming albeit somewhat pricey hostel at an unbeatable location in the fortress. Hence, it's at walking distance to pretty much everything. Dorm rooms are well-equipped with proper beds (no bunkbeds!), a mosquito net, a personal ceiling fan and a spacious locker.

I only stayed here for one night in a dorm room, which was alright. While the dorm room was clean and came with spacious lockers and airconditioning, the shared bathroom wasn't too clean at all. Contrarily, the location was very nice, with the beach only a few minutes away and plenty of cheap eateries in the vicinity. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.

Chambers of the Boheme, Istanbul, Turkey
6.9
12th Sep 2014

Although the hostel is in a very convenient location just off Istiklal Street and a few minutes' walk from Taksim Square, it failed to impress me otherwise. The lack of a good common area makes that there isn't much of an atmosphere, unfortunately. Additionally, the furniture is in dire need of an update and the cleanliness is subpar, especially that of the bathrooms. On the upside, the airconditioning is much appreciated and the friendliness and the hospitality of the owner are sublime!

Rapunzel, Istanbul, Turkey
6.9
9th Sep 2014

To be honest, the Rapunzel Hostel failed to impress me. I liked its small size and homely atmosphere, but I found it all a bit too quiet and lacking a sociable atmosphere. The location near the Galata Tower is very nice, having many boutique shops and bars. Contrarily, the rooms are rather small, have rather unstable bunkbeds and the toilet barely worked. I also had mixed experiences with the staff; whereas some were very friendly and helpful, others just didn't say a word for reasons unknown.

Die Wohngemeinschaft, Cologne, Germany

7th Aug 2014

After previously having stayed at two other hostels in Cologne, Die Wohngemeinschaft definitely is the best of these three. It's a nice and small hostel in a lively neighbourhood and at walking distance from the city centre. I loved the uniquely designed rooms with spacious beds and ditto lockers. The cleanliness and security are both top-notch and the staff is friendly and helpful. The only negative point is the pricey breakfast.

Copenhagen Downtown Hostel, Copenhagen, Denmark
7.4
23rd Jul 2014

A large hostel at a convenient location in the city centre of Copenhagen. The bar downstairs is lively and has a friendly atmosphere. Although the breakfast is expensive, the free dinner and the kitchen facilities make up for that. The downside is the lack of showers and toilets (only 3-4 per floor) and the lack of cooling, which makes the rooms get bloody hot during the Summer. Opening a window offers not much of a relief, because of the noise at night.

Eastener Hostel, Berlin, Germany
5.1
10th May 2014

Having been to more than 50 hostels throughout Europe, the Eastener Hostel totally missed the mark. It's a tiny and rather basic hostel in a convenient location. Despite its very small size, it lacks a sociable atmosphere. Moreover, the cleanliness leaves much to be desired. What I found very odd, is that the staff frequently isn't present to answer the doorbell or your questions. On the positive side, the location is good, offering easy access to public transport and nearby sights.

2A Hostel, Berlin, Germany

8th May 2014

Disappointment abounds, unfortunately. The hostel itself is very modern, well designed, kept very clean and offers top-notch security features. The rooms are nice with comfy beds and en-suite bathrooms. However, the rooms facing the train station are noisy all day long, making it hard to sleep even with earplugs. I didn't like the location at all; It's a rather seedy area with nothing of interest and it takes some 30 minutes to get to the main sights. Moreover, the hostel totally lacks a vibe.

PLUS Berlin, Berlin, Germany

A truly massive place that seems to attract mostly groups and families. It is a vibrant hostel yet not the ideal place for individual travellers. Although the rooms are somewhat noisy and the WiFi-connection is intermittent most of the time, the genuinely friendly staff, the great location and the absolutely astonishing amenities make up for that. Overall, I think the Plus Hostel offers an excellent value for money.

Alcatraz Backpacker Hostel, Berlin, Germany

I enjoyed my stay at the Alcatraz hostel. It's a small hostel with a cosy atmosphere, where the graffiti on the walls adds up to its quirkiness. It's located close to both the underground station Eberswalder Straße and the Mauerpark as well as in an area offering a plethora of cheap eateries and cafés. The hostel comes with a well-equipped kitchen and a smoothly running WiFi-connection too.

A large yet utterly cramped hostel with a very modern and spotlessly clean interior, excellent amenities and a very central location. Unfortunately, the small size of the common area in combination with the many school groups and families give this place a rather bland atmosphere that is typical for a youth hostel. Nevertheless, this place offers a good value for money.

Such a strange place; It looks partially renovated and partially rundown. My room was so small, I even had difficulty putting my luggage in a place so that no one would stumble over it. Besides, there weren't any lockers in the room and the WiFi connection was consistently awful. The common area has no atmosphere and the bar was never manned. The location wasn't too bad: 5 min. walk to a nightlife/restaurant area, 5 min. walk to the nearest underground station. In short, not recommended.

The very small size of this hostel along with the very friendly and hospitable staff make you quickly feel at home. Furthermore, the place is kept exceptionally clean and offers comfortable bunk beds and top-notch amenities. The only minor drawback is its location at some 20 minutes walk from the river, but once back at the hostel you'll quickly forget about that.

Clean and spacious rooms with en-suite bathrooms. Splendid common areas and a fun bar to top it off. Its staff certainly deserves a mention; they're kind, helpful and succeed very well in creating a lively and sociable atmosphere, where it is easy to meet other travellers. Some minor points: the foam mattresses as well as the location could be better, and I would have liked it, if breakfast would be served. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my stay at Hostel One and can highly recommended it.

Modern, spotlessly clean and very centrally located hostel with a friendly and helpful staff. The hostel also offers top-notch security with keycard access and lockers in every room. In this light, the design of the showers in terms of privacy is strikingly odd. Unfortunately, I found the hostel not to be very lively. Perhaps the time of year? Nevertheless, I would stay here again the next time when I'm in Nuremburg.

Although I stayed here only briefly, I had a pleasant stay. The Meininger is a massive place offering spotless and spacious rooms with ensuite bathroom and top-notch facilities. Although its location next to the Amsterdam-Sloterdijk railway station and amidst office buildings is very convenient, there is nothing of interest in its vicinity. I found its staff to be very attentive and helpful. Having been to other Meininger Hostels before, this one offers clearly a livelier common area.

A massive place offering clean and spacious rooms with ensuite bathrooms as well as excellent security and facilities. Its location opposite the Augustiner brewery is not too central (30 minutes' walk to city centre), but with the nearest tram stop at only 100 metres from the hostel one can get around easily. This place seems to attract mostly groups and families, making it more of a budget hotel rather than a true backpacker hostel.

Nice hostel in a convenient location that allows the beautiful city centre to be reached in a mere five minutes' walk and the railway station in a fifteen minutes' walk. Its staff is consistently very kind and helpful, whereas its fully equipped kitchen is a definite asset, too. On the downside, I stayed in a rather cramped mixed room that comes with a tiny bathroom with a semi-transparent sliding door that offers little privacy.

After having stayed at another, much larger hostel in Budapest I appreciated the friendly backpacker atmosphere of this small hostel opposite the Nyugati station.

Hence, Tiger Tim's Place comes definitely recommended.

Brilliant location in the former Jewish quarter that also allows for easy access to the tourist attractions in the city centre. The surrounding area also offers plenty of nice and cheap little eateries. Although the rooms are spacious, clean and come with top-notch amenities, having stayed at other Wombats hostels before, it surprised me that the Wombar isn't lively at all. Moreover, with groups of school children and a bit of a sterile feel, the hostel felt more like a budget hotel.

Nevertheless, the hostel comes with a cosy café, where I enjoyed the African lentil soup and the Tannenzäpfle at the bar.

Hostel Krumlov House, Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic
6.0
1st Aug 2013

Although I found it a quirky and quiet hostel in a convenient location, the Krumlov House just failed to impress me after having visited forty odd hostels across Europe. The hostel doesn't organise any events itself, which is fine to me if the staff would provide adequate information. Unfortunately, the knowledgeability of the American receptionist regarding things to see and do in lovely CK fell short and did not exceed the very basics.

Sorry we failed to impress. As we are the highest rated hostel in Cesky Krumlov, we do have the added problem of having to live up to everyone's expectations. Our hostel is for independent travellers who don't need organized activities , so perhaps you would have been happier someplace else. But giving such a low rating to our friendly staff member ( who was in training when you arrived) is a bit unfair.

Circus Hostel, Berlin, Germany

25th Apr 2013

Centrally located hostel with a plethora of quirky bars and shops in its vicinity. The rooms are spotless and come with comfy beds. Although the facilities generally are top-notch, I found the lockers inconveniently small and my key-card frequently hesitated.

Casa d'Alagoa, Faro, Portugal

20th Sep 2012

The Casa d'Alagoa was a pleasant surprise during my holiday to Portugal. A nicely renovated building on a central location in Faro. Very friendly staff and a dito atmosphere. I enjoyed a nice dinner at the hostel and a night out at The Jam. When staying in Faro, the Casa d'Alagoa comes highly recommended!

Pensao Residencial Policarpo, Evora, Portugal
8.3
17th Sep 2012

I found Pensão Policarpo to be a charming guesthouse on a convenient location in the city centre of Évora and with a very helpful staff. The thing I didn't like, though, was the noise from the traffic in the street at the back of the guesthouse. In addition, the security (locks and lockers) could also be better. Still, this guesthouse offers a great value for money.

12th Sep 2012

Now, I've been to quite a few hostels, among which the Hoscar-winning Jetpak hostels in Berlin, but the staff at the Travellers House are hands down the best ever! Always welcoming, friendly and helpful with great recommendations. For the rest, it's got an excellent location, top-notch facilities and a truly superb atmosphere. Travellers House, you deserve the next Hoscar!

Serenata Hostel Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal
8.0
10th Sep 2012

As far as the design and the facilities are concerned, I have never seen anything quite like the Serenata Hostel: simply amazing. On the other hand, the Serenata Hostel definitely lacks atmosphere and felt anonymous to me. The lounge and the bar are empty most of the time. If you want to meet other travellers, you're probably better off elsewhere. That's a pity.

Porto Spot Hostel, Porto, Portugal
9.1
4th Sep 2012

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Porto Spot Hostel. It's the friendly and helpful staff together with the top-notch facilities and pleasant atmosphere that make this hostel. The location could be better, though. In addition, it would be nice to have cooling (airco/ceiling fan) in the rooms, because it gets bloody hot at night. The free walking tour by Pancho Tours was a nice way to get to know Porto.

Grand Hostel Berlin, Berlin, Germany
10.0
19th Apr 2012

It's the fifth time I stayed at the Grand Hostel. I guess that already says a lot. I find it a quiet, clean and comfy hostel (not a party hostel!) on a top-notch location that hardly any hostel in Berlin can beat. For those looking to get to know the splendid nightlife in Berlin, I can recommend their pub crawl, which leads to several interesting bars in Kreuzberg. Looking forward to my next stay at the Grand Hostel Berlin!

16th Sep 2011

I really enjoyed my stay at the Meininger and lovely Salzburg! Although the location of the hostel is not the best, the public transport connections are excellent and it's only a 15-minutes walk to the old town. I stayed in a spacious and clean room that came with an en-suite bathroom and good-quality bunk beds. The staff is friendly and helpful, too. In short, it's a definite thumbs up for the Meininger hostel from me!

I briefly stayed here, but wasn't impressed by the Hostel Central. Although it's a centrally located hostel that offers excellent security, especially its cleanliness leaves much to be desired and it also totally lacks a vibe. I therefore won't be back.

I stayed at Wombats City Hostel before, as well as another hostel in Munich, so I can therefore honestly say that Wombats is the best by a mile! This hostel offers everything a backpacker can wish for. Go there, you will not regret it! Oh, I can recommend their pub crawl, too.

Hostel99, Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic
8.3
2nd Jul 2011

Nice hostel with helpful staff that gave good tips on where to go. I definitely recommend the rafting pub crawl and the neighbouring Hospoda 99 is also well worth going to for a bite and a drink. A negative aspect is that the lights in the lobby and the toilets switch off so quickly. It would be nice if the sensors were readjusted to stay on longer.

Great design hostel with comfy beds in spotless rooms. Tastefully designed lounge bar where a nice breakfast or a cheap beer can be had. Free WiFi in the lobby. Very friendly and helpful staff that will gladly ensure you enjoy your stay. Not the best location, but the public transport connections are great (even at night!). In short, the Czech Inn comes highly recommended!

Unbeatable location, friendly and helpful staff, clean and spacious rooms with normal beds (no bunk beds!) and lockers, free tours and Internet access. It feels more like a hotel than a backpacker hostel, though it's priced like a hostel. I would definitely come back the next time I'm in Berlin!

Ambient Hostel, Keszthely, Hungary
5.7
2nd Sep 2010

I was surprised to find that already early September the hostel was almost empty and because of that the Ambient Hostel actually lacked ambience. Keszthely itself was nearly deserted, too. What I found really annoying were the back-breaking beds with mattresses that are far too thin and soft. On the positive side, the dorms and bathrooms were clean, and the hostel is located near the castle and the main street. Unfortunately, I can't recommend the Ambient Hostel.

In short, this hostel is impersonal and overpriced! I (and others too) had the \"pleasure\" of meeting with a grumpy staff member for some unknown reason. The hostel is clean, although the kitchen is not. The facilities are poor with no breakfast, paid laundry, free internet (though the computer is occupied most of the time) and beds and lockers that are about to fall apart. The lounge room upstairs is nicely decorated, but deserted most of the time, so not a good the place to meet fellow travellers. The restaurant downstairs is disappointing; smoky and serving food (no breakfast!) that is average at best. It\'s also more popular among local business people than with the guests. Again, not a good the place to meet fellow travellers. The only positive aspect is that this hostel is centrally located, but on the downside there isn\'t much to see or do in Bratislava. I certainly won\'t recommend this hostel! In fact, give Bratislava a miss, since it\'s utterly boring!

I certainly enjoyed my stay at GBL Pub&Garden. Its staff is very friendly and helpful. The hostel itself is clean, relatively small and has very good facilities, such as a free breakfast, internet, tabletop football and -the pi�ce de r�sistance- a very nice pub/communal area, which is a great place to meet fellow travellers. The hostel is conveniently located (15 minutes walk) between the city centre and the Jewish neighbourhood (10 minutes walk). The only drawback are the beds, which are too small for me and have too soft mattresses.

The staff is superb and definitely among the most helpful and knowledgeable I\'ve met! The hostel itself is very clean and has spacious rooms and ditto bathrooms/toilets. The facilities are great with free internet, laundry, locker, luggage storage, DVD\'s, XBox and more. The Chinese restaurant next door is good and makes up for the lack of kitchen facilities of the hostel. Although the hostel is located a short distance away from the nearest underground station, it\'s still at least a 20 minute ride to where the action is. The only drawback I found were the guests, who weren\'t my cup of tea (playing Guitar Hero and watching the telly most of the day).
