I'm sorry to say that my low rating for this hostel was mainly bc of the cleanliness concern. The hostel lacks a deep cleaning along with consistent maintenance of: the bathrooms, hallways, rooms, and the main entry area. I was disgusted by the hair and dust around the baseboards, lighting fixtures, bathtub and toilet. Under the beds was a thick layer of more hair and dust and the furniture in the room was not clean. The entry was littered with cigerete butts...not. Good way to welcome guests

The location of this resort/hotel was perfect. If you want a quiet & private beach that is clean & not cluttered w/ tourists...this is the place for you. Room B2 is one room away from being directly next to the beach. You can choose to upgrade but it is not really necessary as this room is near perfect. The restaurant has a variety of great food items to please all diets. The staff are very helpful but don't have much english skills. Hiring one of their taxi drivers costs 300 BHT each way.

The location of this hotel is perfect. It is literally a few steps away from the most beautiful clock you will see. From this point you have everything at your fingertips. The hotel is safe, clean, and the staff are very nice but they don't have english skills to help you around the city. Thankfully there's a wall featuring all the information you need about markets, tours, and special highlights.

This is possibly the BEST hostel I have ever stayed in. The people working and the guests had a positive and fun energy. There are many things to do, see and enjoy at the hostel and there's more if you leave the property too. The food, drinks and entertainment were very good too. I think the owners are doing a very good job by training their staff to be hosts and to enjoy the hostel. Yes, I would stay again and also let others know too.

The location is good. The staff are not very helpful. They don't offer any ideas or answer any questions. The restaurant is boring and the staff don't do anything to bring guests. They are always sitting around doing nothing and the front area could use some cleaning and dusting. If I were manager I would have each person holding a towel to clean, a broom to sweep, a mop to clean the floors. I would have people organize the front so it looks inviting and appealing to guests. Just suggestions.

The single room with shared bath is the right size. It has a single bed, AC, WIFI, and a desk with chair. I suggest the staff use a quieter voice at night and in the early morning. The staff can be heard talking and laughing and at times it got to bee a little too much. The free breakfast was much appreciated and the helpful staff were eager to help.

The hostel is exactly the way it was advertised on Hostelworld. It is relaxing, clean, and filled with many great pieces of art. The rooms are beautiful and spacious with a TV, AC, ceiling fan, and free WIFI. The staff are friendly and they try very hard to make all the guests happy. The guesthouse is a 7 minute walk to the metro station and the city is easily accessible on foot or public transportation. I would stay here again and I would recommend it to my friends. Thank you!

Look no further bc this hostel is like no other. You want a place to rest after a long day, eat meals you prepare in the fully stocked kitchen, enjoy drinks in the bar, mingle with the staff and guests? Well, this hostel is for you bc it offers all of that and more. The staff here are genuinely kind and helpful, it's clean, centrally located, and it's decorated in a fun and elegant way. This hostel eadily scores a 100% score from me and I am sure you will give it the same after you leave

I really want to give you a PERFECT score but I can't bc of one single area. The check-in time is too late in the day. You really need to rethink the time and adjust it by at least 1 hour so your guests are not boundl in the waiting room, hallways, tables, and overflowing out the door to the sidewalk. This image isn't appealing to anyone walking by. Also, your late check-in time takes away from each guests time to visit and explore. If anything your lockers should be free...but yiu charge.

Great location with all possible services needed. Reception looks hectic but once inside room everything changes. Trims are large with kitchenette, and endure bathrooms have everything you need. Very clean and tidy. Only drawback is there is nothing to cook with (no pots and pans, no dishes or cutlery). What's the point of having a kitchen if you can't cook?

In a superb location and with spacious be clean rooms. The major downfall is the common room bc it is steril and void of anything to invite and promote conversations. The room is like a depressing hospital waiting room. You are in the capital of the world for design and it shocks me to the lack of thought that went into planning this critical space. Replace the fluorescent lights, furniture, and that stupid wifi connection that is promoting silence and boredom.

This hostel is in a prime location. If you want to be in the center of it all and have access to services, tours, and the highlights of the city, then this is the place. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast is not bad either. Anyone who stays here is sure to have a wonderful and pleasant stay. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfy, and access from the airport is a snap. My only recommendation is to have shelves installed in the showers so people can place their clothes onto.

The room was large and it had everything I needed to feel at home. I had access to everything from museums, to cafes, to bars. The train stations are near too with only a 10 minute walk. There are grocery stores too. Everything was perfect here.

19th Apr 2015

The village of Corniglia is charming and I'm glad I made it my home base. I was disappointed by the overall appearance of the hostel as it was not inviting. It needs color, artwork, music playing (turn off that stupid TV that is on 24 hrs a day), furniture where people can sit and talk, mood lighting that doesn't include florescent lighting that is ugly and bland, and their really needs to be a small kitchenette with stove and refrigerator for guest to cook their food.

I don't feel comfortable scoring this B&B because when I arrived I was sent to a different location. The person staying in my room was ill and; therefore, I got displaced. The B&B was nice but nothing like what I had expected. I was placed in a dark room with a view of a wall. The keepers were nice but they didn't reach out and offer much of anything. I think where I stayed would have been nice for a couple...certainly not a single man. The scores are NOT from where I had a reservation.

This was in a very nice location. I think you should allow guests that arrive early in the morning to check-in when they arrive. It's not nice to have someone wait till 2 o'clock when they arrived at 6:30 am.

The room was secure, clean and within a perfect location that was surrounded by restaurants and shopping. Getting to the historic sections of the city were easy too becaus of the short walking distance and because the public transportation was abundant.

This is a good hostel for people wanting blasting music till into the night and the smell of alcohol and smoke throughout the rooms and hallways. Yes, there is a bar in the lobby and with that...the smell permeates throughout the building. There are signs posted every 5 meters warning people not to smoke...but that doesn't stop anyone from smoking and it's really bad. Having said all of that, I met wonderful people and the staff were very kind to chat with.

Jacobs Inn is a very nice hostel with the added perk of being so close to the bus station and to the city. They offer a free breakfast and water throughout the day. There's also FREE wi-fi, but the only problem is that it's only in the lobby and it's confusing beyond comprehension to actually log in because you have to go through Facebook and access it through there.

Shukran for a truly unforgettable experience. Everyone was very kind and willing to help us in anyway possible during our 2 night stay. I want give a special shukran to Ahmet for being a fantastic tour guide through the desert and for sharing himself with us during dinnertime. In addition, shukran to the chef and his wife for making delicious breakfast and dinner. The chicken with vegetables and rice was delicious and the breakfast bread and toppings were unique and perfect. Again, shukran!

I think you have some of the friendliest staff working at Saba'a Hotel. Everyone was very helpful and offered to provide us with any information as we needed. I would have liked to see a reception area a little more cleaner and tidier. The room had everything we needed, but the drain in the shower didn't drain properly and the heater in the room was not sufficient to heat the area. Please know that we are not complaining, just offering some comments to help you with future guests.

Hi, Thank-you for taking the time to write. I'm glad you enjoyed you stay with us. I have poured some crystals down the shower and it drains fine now. Sorry you thought the heater wasn't strong enough. 1200W is usually fine for that room. I'm afraid we can't afford to put larger ones in as the electricity costs are just too high. Last months elec bill was over 700JD! Kind regards Gail

Thank you to Hani for all his help and for allowing us to check-in when we arrived very early one morning. He was very helpful during our time in Aaman and he provided us with information as we needed it. The location of your hotel is in a prime location with the citadel and theater being within a short walking distance of each other. Also, there is plenty of shopping to meet everyone's needs that are steps away from the hotel. I would highly recommend staying at your hotel.

I really wanted to leave an EXCELLENT rating across all the categories but I couldn't for the following reasons: the rooms were spotless and so were the common areas; however, the restrooms and showers needed cleaning. All the staff were outstanding, except for the tall blobdish guy with curly hair. He needs to learn how to listen to the customer and not make assumptions. Lizette is an outstanding organizer that goes above the call of duty to make her guests happy. She gets an OUSTANDING score

My only regret was that I didn't stay long enough. The room met all my immediate needs. I found the directions to be a little confusing. Nevertheless, I arrived and was able to rest after an exciting visit to Italy. The man that checked us in wasn't very welcoming. Both my friend and I didn't feel very welcome. After his shift ended and the other gentelman arrived, we received all the attention necessary yes, I'd return in the near future.

Everything about this hotel was done right! It was located in a nice section of the city (about 15 minutes from train station).

The room was spotless and well appointed with everything to make our stay comfortable. The wifi worked throughout the building, the bathroom/shower was spotless, and the bedding was as comfortable as the bed I have at home. Excellent!

I want to give a special thanks to Razvan for staying up late on the night we arrived from the train station as it was nearly midnight. It was also very nice that he talked to the taxi driver via my mobile phone and instructed him to take us directly to the apartment. Upon arriving, he greeted us at the door, walked us into the apartment, showed us around, and provided us with clean sheets and towels. The apartment was clean, safe, spacious and was meters from shops and the beaches.

I want to thank Sat and the other owner because you were very kind, welcoming and very cheerful. What's more, I loved your energy. The suggestions I have are: the blind cat needs a new home as it is not safe for him/her and also having the cat defecate on the floor is not sanitary. The AC in the Mulberry Dorm Room needs to work if you're going to sell that room as it is. If you say "Quiet time is at 22:00", then you need to enforce and honor it. Lastly, the bartender...not very friendly.

View Property Reply

I'm glad you thought we are full of energy, we love our hostel and want our guests to have a great stay. In response to your specific comments - we have checked the a/c in the 10 bed dorm and it is working just fine. Fig is a blind kitten who was left near death in our car park and we nursed her back to life. As she is blind she takes a little longer to toilet train then seeing cats but we are doing out best and she is safe and loved. We just ask for patience!

I arrived very late to this hostel and all I wanted was to arrive and go directly to bed. There was smoking in the office and in the common areas. There was also excessive and loud conversations that filtered directly into the room. And, even with earplugs I could still hear the noise. And also smell the awful smoke. Though everyone was very helpful, I don't think this hostel is comparable to the others that could easily be found around the city center. My suggestion: NO SMOKING NEAR ROOMS.

Hostel is not near to the city center as described. It's very misleading and when you bring it to their attention they are rude and abrupt (I'm sure they get questioned about this by guests). The woman working the desk is uninviting, will not speak to the guests and only plays Internet games. The man, I don't know his name because he never bothered to introduce himself, wants to check you in quickly and offer no information. When asked about train times, his info was wrong...big mistake.

Raul is by far the best hostel owner of any place I've stayed. He has created a hostel that is inviting, enjoyable and relaxing. He does this by taking the time to talk to you, by cooking a BBQ for all the guests, drinking a beer with you out in the courtyard, or by cheering along to a soccer game with the rest of the guests. The successes of the hostel are because of your sincere personality, welcoming character, attention to detail, and bc you are a happy person. Raul, you are the KING!

Though our driver didn't share info about them, there was plenty of English markers to guide is through the visit. What's more, he charged 100 RON for all of this. As for the room, it was LARGE, clean, and the kitchen had all the necessities. Location: only a short 15 minute walk from the center of town.

This old converted farmhouse is situated on a hilltop overlooking a forest & a castle tower. Getting to the hostel is no easy task as it is away from the city and it is a 15 minute walk from the base of the park to the top. If you're carrying luggage, which most people do, this is a great problem. Oh, and if you arrive in the afternoon, you will be waiting for hours until the staff arrives becasue they are closed. This makes no sense! Also, the directions you print from the internet are not OK

Hi, I don't think it's a big problem reach us, as we offer the gusts the chance to use the free shuttle bus from Camerlata to the hostel..You only need to call us, so we will be able to come at the right time to pick you up.About the closing time it's specified on the web site that between 12 to 5pm the reception is close and it's only for 5 hours during all the day (so we have time to clean the hostel properly). I'm sorry you found it very complicated, hope the rest was fine, best regards

My suggestion is for the young guy working the from desk: Learn how to be a professional worker. You are a very nice person before the customer pays. But, once you get the money fir the room you are rude, unwelcoming, and unprofessional. The security guard, the woman and the cook were EXCELLENT!! To the young guy please learn to be nice. :)

This hotel is okay for the person needing to fly in and out of Mumbai is the airport is a short taxi drive away. That said, there is no reason to stay here as it is extremely out of the way to just about any place of interest. On any given day, you will sit in a taxi for about 2 hours just to go into the city. Expect to pay about 700 rupees for your trip each way. As for the value of the hotel, I believe better accommodations can be found closer to the city where there is much more happening.

Was disappointed when we called from the bus station as planned for the transport & there was no answer. After we decided to walk in search of the hostel, we finally reached Delores & arrangements were made to have us picked up from the street. The hostel is beautiful and Delores & her family are sweet & kind. The hostel isn't close to the Old City & walking up and down the stairs is something to keep in mind. The free WI-FI worked about 25% of the time we were there (3 days/2 night).

Pros: Close proximity to Central Terminal, shopping, bus routes, cafes/restaurants, and the port. The staff were inviting and welcoming. Though at first glance, the hostel appeared unsafe...my beliefs were dispelled as it was very safe. Cons: There could have been heat, even from a portable system. The bathrooms were not the cleanest...nor were they the dirtiest either. The main bathroom sink was not working, but others were available to use.

This hostel is in a superb location being that it is a mere 2 blocks from the bus/train/subway terminal. You are within walking distance to markets, restaurants, bars, and the various sites. In addition, the staff are FANTASTIC! Ask them any question and they will respond with a smile and with a answer. Something that would make this hostel even better: Cleaner bathrooms.

This hostel is in a superb location...simply walk off the train or bus and you are home. Cafes, restaurants, shops and various sites are all within walking distance. The front desk ladies are a little shy, but will help you the best they can. I have no complaints about staying at this hostel and I would certainly come back again.

Enjoyed my 4 night stay at Westend City Hostel. Because of its superb location, I was able to visit all the sites I had planned via walking, tram, or subway. Besides all the sites, I also found the hostel to be clean and the staff very helpful. The only part about my stay that would have made it even better would have been having WI-FI internet in the upper dormitory rooms. The internet works on the first floor, but after that...the connection is weak and/or not available.

This exceptional hostel met all my needs while in Prague. The hostel was equidistant to everything and in a safe and clean location. Furthermore, the staff working there were the nicest people I have ever met at a hostel. They were professional, courteous, helpful, and always greeting me with a big smile. I want to thank Maria for all her kind suggestions on where to visit and for the late night door person...both of you are ROCK STARS

This place has the potential to be an exciting place, but the staff are arrogant, rude, & unwelcoming. There is a man, tends to wear black all the time & has longish salt/pepper hair, working the front desk that should not be working there. Any question you ask from him will yield a snarl look & a short response. This guy simply has no time for anyone but for himself. As for the rest of the staff, the shuttle drivers from the port to the resort, they are also unprofessional.

This little hotel is charming, clean, safe, and accessible via bus or a short 20 minute walk into town. If you are wanting a little place to escape after spending a full day at the local beaches, the tourist crowds in the town, and the buzzing sounds of he buses and motorcycles, then this is the place for you. What's more, the keepers of the hotel are kind, hospital, and very flexible, particularly with changing dates. If you're a wild and crazy person, please don't stay here.

This hostel is a complete disaster. If you want to stay at a hostel where the staff are literally clueless, lack social skills then this is the place for you. And, if using a restroom that is NEVER cleaned is something you're okay with, then make your reservations. Wondering why I didn't leave...they ask for FULL payment up front so if you leave...they've got your hard-earned cash. Suggestion: The hostel needs to start all over.

By far the BEST hostel I have ever stayed. If you want a safe, clean and fun place...this is it! What's more it is within close proximity to everything whether you walk, take the metro, or ride the bus. What makes this place unique is the way-cool staff as they are engaging, helpful, funny, and very hospitable. They will sit with you to laugh, watch TV, play pool, eat with you, and are not stingy with their internet or telephone usage. So, if you want to have an awesome time, stay here.

This hostel has the nicest/most helpful staff: Lucas, Nino & Teresa (many others too). Though the hostel lacks character, it makes up for it in many other ways by its close proximity to EVERYTHING, FREE Caipirinha nights (random nights), breakfasts, and WIFI. Looking for CLEAN? This hostel has a cleaning crew working nonstop all day long. So clean you can eat off the floors. FYI: The airport transfer is high (70.00). I suggest taking the airport shuttle/bus @ 9.00. Takes the same time..less $

Perfect spot near all the sites you want to visit while in Siem Reap. Short 15 min walk to Pub Street (bars, restaurants andsShopping). Staff is friendly and eager to help make any arrangements without being pushy. They are working 24/7 and are available anytime...just ask. The food in the restaurant is delicious and is well priced too. The free wifi is a plus and available anywhere on the premises (at least is seemed that way). My room was clean, had AC, TV, and had no complaints. Enjoyed it

Guest House was easy to find and centrally located within the shopping and tourist area. If you can stomach the slimy men trying to sell you fake watches and purses and some of the grungy tourists that congregate near the entryway, you'll be just fine. The rooms are outfitted with fans, AC, flat screen TV, small fridge, clean linen, free WIFI, and telephone. One more thing: you are steps away from Ave of the Stars, museum, waterfront, and all the shopping you could ever imagine. Enjoy!

Though it lacked character, didn't have the most outgoing staff, nor was it a place that was fun, it was secure, was in an ok location and was somewhat clean. I felt lucky because I had a "real" window to look out...some rooms were rooms within rooms within other rooms...this is dangerous and not acceptable. Suggestion: stop smoking, remove all the junk in the office area and make the rooms legal to draw a wider range of guests. Had this been the case, I'd recommend it to others.

In a prime location, steps from The Bund and 3 blocks from the main subway line...easy for transport from/to Pudong Airport.. The Captain Bar on the rooftop has an exceptional view, please note the minimum service charge. A negative: prepare to be charged for toilet paper, towels, and bedding. Of the utmost disappointment is the filthy bathrooms. The showers and toilet areas are not cleaned regularly at all. Water is on the floor and counters. Oh, and there is nowhere to place your clothes

Outstanding hostel!!! The only suggestions are: adjust the light timers in the WCs to give guests more time before leaving them the dark and let guests know that the large dorm style room in the basement gets very hot bc the person on the top bunk has to turn it off or he freezes...therefor, everyone dies of heat exhaustion.

Suggestions: Update your menu to include larger portions and a wider variety of foods/drinks. Include free WiFi internet or have a FREE laptop for guests to use during their stay. Play fun music at the lounge area to invite guests. Make an attempt to be social with the guests to get to know one another. Light more mosquito repellent candles as the mosquitos are REALLY bad here.

This place does not exist...CLOSED... DO NOT book here!!! It evidently closed in October. I arrived to Phi Phi Island and after a long-ass climb to get to it, I found out it was closed. I did locate the original owner about relocating me and he is NOT the most understanding and caring man. His solution: You stay in a hell-hole of a room and he takes off some of the $ you paid. Trust me: Not worth it. U R better of sleeping on the beach with mosquitos and wild animals.

This hostel/guesthouse is really a person's home. It is far from the main city and the beach areas. Also, it sits on a steep hillside that requires you to hike it or to pay a driver to transport you to it (can get expensive). This is in addition to be transported from the bottom of the hill to the main city and beaches areas too. Again, this can be expensive too.

Location was great with many things to see and do. I believe the guesthouse should include FREE WiFi for all its guests. Their should also be a house telephone for guests to use to connect with family/friends and/or to book excursions. Comment: Please don't permit smoking near the guest's rooms. I often could smell people (including the owner) smoking outside of my room... this is not cool. All in all, great place to stay : )

We believe the owner of the hostel lacks integrity. When we offered to walk with him to the police station to verify our passports, he refused and called a person, who posed as a police officer, and together they were adamant about not having us go. When he finally agreed to have us to with him, we quickly determined that nobody from the police station was ever called... it was a hoax... a complete lie. We left immediately and couldn't wait to get as far from that hostel.
