The cleanest hostel I've ever seen; perfect location, very good security, helpful staff; the usual problems - lack of space, paid wifi/storage room, no lift to the top two floors; overall - will stay again.

Castle Rock Hostel

Edinburgh, Scotland

Perfect location – stone throw from the Royal Mile/Castle, clean, good security, well organized, helpful reception staff, 4 lounges so always possible to find a quiet corner. Minus – no bed side-lights, so people coming in late to dorms trash senselessly in the darkness. Overall – one of the best hostels I've ever been to and will stay there when in Edi again.

Good location, quiet, safe, secure, nice receptionists (Faisal and Reggie - joy to deal with). Additional informal space for socializing/wine drinking;-) in the evenings outside on the steps (hostel is located in the pedestrianized square off the main street) which really makes this place. No lockers and no ladders/protective barriers on upper bunk beds; cramped rooms with no personal space; free wi-fi in the lobby/downstairs but the signal too weak in the rooms. French keyboards naturallement.

Hostel Smith

Nice, France
67%

Booked a bed in female dorm with en-suite, ended up with 5 guys as the dorm mysteriously changed to 'mixed'; no en-suite, 2 showers shared between 4 dorms, no lockers/wi-fi for the first 3 days, internet access – 2 netbooks with missing keys, no toilet paper, last 2 days – no tea/coffee; noisy. Perfect location, landlady and her son, when around, friendly and helpful, although landlady had no record of me having paid deposit for the keys – to her credit she believed my word and paid it back.

Very helpful night receptionist who woke me up at 4am when my electronic alarm clock stopped working the night before (and I couldn't get new batteries anywhere).
