Great atmosphere, bar, food & activities on offer. A great base for a snow holiday in the mountains.

Lillehammer Hostell, Lillehammer, Norway

Located right AT the train (c. 1 3/4 hours to Oslo Gardemoen airport) & bus station (regular local buses to ski resorts, etc.), this could not be more convenient. Fabulously clean, and the downstairs cafe (free coffee & wi-fi for all you hipster guests!) offers good food and a well-priced breakfast buffet. Yes it's more expensive than your average European hostel, but it's good value for Norway.

Love walking into a hostel where they're playing cool music, and the downstairs breakfast area is really good for socialising. Very handy for Union Square & Downtown, just be careful and turn right out of the door, rather than heading into the Tenderloin.

Whilst it's a little way out of town: 1) the tram is only €1.50 ; 2) the hostel team do everything they can to make it easy for you. The regular shuttle bus between the hostel & tram stop is a bonus if you're tired or carrying your luggage. I only scored lower for Security because they do not have lockers in every dorm. The dorms have secure key card locks, but lockers in every dorm is an expected norm in hostels these days. Hopefully they'll replace the wardrobes with lockers very soon...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your recent feedback. We sincerely hope that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do indeed have new lockers currently on order for the rest of our dorms, so hopefully if you come and visit us again in the future, you will see a marked difference in this area. All the Best, Your Villa Team!

Just off the north end of Las Ramblas, and incredibly close to public transport (metro & buses to the airport) this is a great hostel in a great location. The staff were incredibly helpful, and the social events (including a gig in the hostel on the Saturday night) make this a good place to base yourself for a couple of days' exploring this fantastic city.

Haus der Athleten Hostel, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany

24th Feb 2013

Haus der Athleten was a great base for my snowboarding holiday. It is a generally quiet hostel, 30 seconds from the stop for a bus ride to the ski lifts, or a lovely 20 minute walk along the edge of the fields to the Hausberg lift if you're feeling even more energetic! It was clean, with good facilities and friendly & helpful staff

Wombats City Hostel Munich, Munich, Germany
9.4
23rd Feb 2013

Just seconds from the Hauptbahnhof with great atmosphere, security & staff, this hostel has a lot going for it. Whether you want to be on the city centre, near the station, near the Oktoberfest or just find people to hang out with, Wombat's is a good choice. There's no wi-fi in the rooms (only the lobby) and you're unlikely to get much sleep given the downstairs bar and the road outside. But you're probably not going to want to sleep much here anyway!

Hostel of the Sun, Naples, Italy
8.6
4th Jun 2012

Central location, very helpful & friendly staff. Particularly recommended for first & last nights of a trip, due to proximity to station and airport (even for very early flights before the airport bus, it's only 17 Euros - as at June 2012 - in a taxi from the hostel). Shame about the city, though....Naples needs to clean up its act, and make tourists feel safer after dark.

Podstel Doors Hostel, Bucharest, Romania

8th Apr 2012

Lovely hostel, fabulous interior and facilities. Added bonus of a friendly ginger cat! The only downside is that the location (2 minutes' walk from one of the largest squares and the airport bus) is down a few slightly confusing side streets. Hopefully the hostel will put a couple of signs up, but do print the directions and a very detailed map before you leave (particularly if travelling alone, or late at night)

Great hostel. Friendly staff, who are happy to help organising trips (including out to the most popular castles, so you can make the most of a short stay) and onwards travel... oh, and a free drink token for each day's stay! Also, go on the Guided Brasov walking tour if you can.

A Beary Good Hostel, Singapore, Singapore
8.3
22nd Dec 2011

It couldn't be closer to the MRT Station, which is great for weary travellers. The only real negative is that the hostel is very cramped, but if you don't need or expect a lot of space then this is a great base to explore Singapore from. Great food on your doorstep, too.

Loft Mountain Hostel, Bourg Saint Maurice, France
10.0
12th Mar 2011

A great, friendly & homely hostel which is very boarder friendly, and secure (including a garage to stash your snow gear). Oh, and it's just 5 minutes walk from the Eurostar/ TGV station in Bourg-St-Maurice, and 7 minutes (in your boots!) walk from the Funicular up to Arc 1600 (included in the cost of your your lift pass), so there's hardly a better place for snow lovers & mountain bikers to base themselves.

Rockwell Plaza, New Delhi, India
7.0
9th May 2010

I didn't actually stay at Rockwell Plaza, but at Wood Cottage one of their "sister" properties. Initially a little suspicious of the story about "illness", but I was able to stay in a better place for the same price, so no real worries on that front. Very clean & lovely facilities, but lacking a little in atmosphere. I happened to bump into a couple of lovely people to spend time with, but that was almost luck as opposed to the design of the hostel staff.

Meramees Hostel, Cairo, Egypt

1st Jan 2010

Great location, close to the Egyptian Museum & the Metro. The atmosphere a little depends on who happens to be there at the time and the effort you put in to talking to people...the hostel doesn't seem to have a plan for social events. Great to have the airport pick-up, though, as there's no obvious public transport for late-night flights.

5.0
29th Mar 2009

Decent hostel in a great location, but unfortunately the lack of on-site staff (there is no reception desk or office: check-in is in the bar next door) leads to a complete lack of soul & atmosphere. The only local information is a pile of leaflets, and there is no-one to ask advice, give tips on where to visit, etc.

Plus points are being 5 minutes from the station and having a luggage room where they are happy for you to leave your things (including after check-out). The style of the building leads to a bit of an odd layout (rooms leading off other rooms), and they could do with converting a bedroom into a couple more showers & toilets.
