Travelers House

Portland, USA

Modern and clean with great kitchen facilities. Nice atmosphere. Very relaxing - felt like a home. Great place to meet people. Staff were very welcoming and helpful with organising day trips, buses etc. Great location. 2 minute walk from the bus stop with regular service to Portland centre, Less than 10 minute walk to Mississippi - funky area with great shops and restaurants. So good that I booked another night on my return from Seattle. Would definitely recommend here.

Generator Hostel Copenhagen

Copenhagen, Denmark

Nice, clean hostel. Room was also clean but bin wasn't emptied while I was there - 3 days. Good location: close to metro, shopping area and some of the main tourist attractions are just a short walk away. Common area was nice and funky. Didn't choose to have breakfast there. 65DKK if you book in advance or 75DKK that morning. Aldi around the corner and other small places where you can grab a hot drink and a pastry. The only real disadvantage was having to pay €11 to use a foreign credit card!

Hostel Gastama

Lille, France

The staff were so friendly and helpful. The room was ensuite. Very clean and spaceous. Breakfast was extra but good value for money. Served in the bar area which had a good atmosphere. Short walk from the city centre (15 minutes or so). As a solo traveller it probably wasn't the best place to meet new people but would definately recommend it. Good value for money.

Lybeer Travellers' Hostel

Bruges, Belgium

Room was v.clean.Recently refurbished.Blinds/curtains still haven't been fitted!Appeared to be only 3 WC in hostel.WC/shower & a 2nd shower on 3rd floor.Long wait for WC upstairs in the morning/evening.Male/female WC near reception downstairs.There were still queues & it was annoying having to go up/downstairs to check.My room was beside the stairwell.V.noisy at night with people coming back.Aside from that the location was great.I’m sure once the refurbishments are finished it will look well.

Travel Joy Hostels Chelsea

London, England

First impressions weren't great. The check-in desk is at the bar so after a long, wet day had to wait for 15 mins in a packed bar to get my keycode. The hostel, including the rooms, are dated and the décor is dark. Could do with a revamp. Beds are packed really close together so my head was really close to a strangers. But the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was lovely. Good value for money.


Galway, Ireland

The queues for the internet were crazy. For such a busy hostel it might be worth investing in a few more!!! And it was so noisy. There were people making noise outside the hostel at all hours.

Two more computers have since been installed.

Hostel Mostel

Sofia, Bulgaria

As a solo traveller its a great place to meet people. They offer so much for free - net, tea/coffee, really nıce breakfast, pasta, beer, shot in pub a few doors down. Great value. And the staff are lovely. Would defınately recommend it. Just to note that ensuite means there is a shower in the room. No toilet. But there was never a queue for toilets in communal bathrooms. Only negative point was the mould and mildew in the shower room. Should install extractor fans...

A&O Dresden Hauptbahnhof

Dresden, Germany

Near to the main train station. Signposted to hostel which is great. 20mins from tourist attractions. Staff did their job but they weren't friendly and one girl was just plain rude. As a lone traveller no fun at all. But the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Skip on breakfast. Not nice and not worth €4. Aldi right next door!

Atlantis Hostel

Krakow, Poland

I don't recommend this hotel. No common room. No kitchen. You have to use water from bathroom to make tea/ coffee and wash your dishes there too. Hostel over 3 floors. Adjacent to residential areas. There are security issues - notices reminding you to ensure that the main door is closed. There was a homeless man outside the floor I was staying on - looked like he was waiting to get into hostel. He urinated outside the door. Which goes to explain the awful smell in the common stairwell!

Dear A. Yes - we unfortunately have some issues with homeless people in the building. We asked the administration of the building to repair the main entrance door - yet we are still waiting for this. Anyway - door to both of the floors that are the hostel part are closed all the time. If you ever felt insecure - you have the receptionist on duty to take care of things. We have the surveillance system, yet there are two "black spots" that we cannnot see in the staircase. But we react everytime something is not right. We get rid of homeless pepole with the help of our security men. I would like not to comment on the lack of kitchen case - but I will... WE DO NOT SAY ON HOSTELS.COM NOR HOSTELWORLD.COM sites that we have them. This is because WE DO NOT LIE. We do not have the kitchen (yet - we will open one in April), nor we have the common area. That means that when you were booking a place in Atlantis Hostel - you had to know that. Anyway we hope you had a great time in our wonderful city and next time youo come you will stay with us again to see that we will have a kitchen and a common room then (from April) and that you do not have to me scared of anything. Take care and good luck Sebastian and Atlantis Team

Premium Hostel

Krakow, Poland

Really nice hostel - was more like a hotel. Rooms were really clean. They let me check in early. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Krakow.

Tatamka Hostel

Warsaw, Poland

Lovely helpful staff. Only problem was the internet. They only had one computer and it was out of order one of the days. The connection was very slow.

Vana Tom

Tallinn, Estonia

Great location and its cheap. But if your looking for a good nights sleep then perhaps you should look elsewhere. Walls are paper thin. Kitchen was meant to be locked at night but there was someone there at 5.30pm making noise. Room wasnt cleaned properly - totally missed under the bed...
