Legends

Rome, Italy

I only stayed here one night, but this was the second hostel near the train station I stayed in between flights that was lovely and exceeded my expectations. The 5 bed dorm was nice with clean facilities. The kitchen was nice as well and had lots of free meals available and free wifi (a plus in Rome). My only complaint would be that it can get loud in the kitchen and if you are trying to sleep after 11pm and people are in there, it can be hard. Despite that, I would highly recommend Legends!

Gia Boutique Hostel

Sighisoara, Romania
89%

A nice little pension super close to the train station. It was 10 minutes or less to walk to the city centre. I would recommend this place just because of the location alone. It was very convenient to be 1 minute from the train station. Also, it was clean and had a kitchen.

Kismet Dao Hostel

Brasov, Romania

This was a lovely hostel. My co-traveler said if was the best he'd been in this trip in Europe. It was definitely clean, friendly and well-located. free drink and towels were also a nice perk. It was recommended to us by Care2Travel, a volunteer organization that places backpackers that want to volunteer in Transylvania in short or long volunteer placements and it was also a very nice experience.

Sky Backpackers

It's a great location, but it's really loud in the alley and it's hot so you need to leave the windows open making it quite hard to sleep. The staff were excellent. There were some bizarre cleanliness issues like a large wet patch on a mattress when we arrived though. You can walk everywhere from this centrally located hostel.

Hostel Des Artistes

Rome, Italy

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. Their facilities were excellent. The 5-bed dorm exceeded my expectations. However, as other reviews said it's not a party hostel, but it is still easy to meet people. The breakfast is a bit pricey, but nice to have as an option. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable place.

Hotel El Estadio

This place is good for one night if you need to catch the ferry the next day to Roatan. The staff picked us up and drove us to the ferry. Biggest flaws were the terribly uncomfortable beds and messy kitchen that you pay to use.

This was a very good value hostel in Copan. It was clean enough and the staff was fairly helpful and the location was fine. We were disappointed that they had to take back our fan on the second night because the one I our room wasn't working and it was hot.

I was not too impressed with this hostel after staying in other hostels in the UK in comparison. It was in a beautiful building, but the staff were not that friendly and the kitchen/restaurant wasn't open for me to have breakfast before my flight. Also, they have weird wifi rules and you need use your key card three times just to go from your room to the bathroom. I didn't love the area either, although they are close to a Tube stop.

Hello. Thank you for your feedback. We regret your experience with us wasn't as good as we would like. Regarding our staff, breakfast time, location and free wi-fi rules it's a pity your opinion is so different from most of our guests. About the keycard, is just a way of keeping our safety demands. Hope you come back someday and enjoy it more.

Clifden Town Hostel

Clifden, Ireland
91%

I was very happy with my time in Clifden and the Clifden Town Hostel was the perfect value for money combination. The staff are very helpful and the town is very nice. They keep it very clean. I also enjoyed visiting Letterfrak from there and seeing the Kylemore Abby. A helpful tip though would be to buy any food or drink you need before the evening because restaurants, pubs, and stores close early there.

Isaacs Hostel

This hostel is well located beside the bus station. Also, it is nice, but BIG. There always lots of people around. Some of the staff are very friendly and helpful. The showers are a bit weird with just one hot temperature and they make the hallways very steamy too. Would recommend for location alone.

Very nice hostel and staff. The breakfast option was great and it's within a walkable distance to all the sites. Only suggestion would be to fix the broken locker in our room for better security. Also, the Causeway tour was nice.

Econolodge

Buffalo, USA

This place was fine for a motel near the airport. They win points with the free airport transfers, but be aware that the service stops after 12:30 a.m., so if your flight is delayed (like mine was), you are out of luck. I was also a little disappointed that the breakfast finished so early.

We were very impressed with the private double suite in this hostel and would highly recommend it for a couple. Also the staff were excellent. My only recommendations would be that there be a key so that you don't have to always wait in the street to be buzzed in and also that if the garbage could be taken out from the rooms each day, that would be nice. The neighborhood isn't the best, but you can't do much about that.

The owner was very helpful and speaks English. It was a nice hotel and the best value we found during Carnival. It was weird that you couldn't control the AC's temperature. Also, the directions on how to get there were perfect. A breakfast option would be nice, but we had a little kitchen in out room, so it wasn't really necessary.

3Dogs Hostel

Sao Paulo, Brazil

This hostel has a nice location close to the subway line and a grocery store. The facilities were okay, but not great. During the check-in, a staff member gave us the wrong room and no one noticed the problem until we were already asleep at midnight and then we were woken up many times, once by someone entering our locked room while we were sleeping. The owner was very apologetic afterwards and rectified the situation, but we had read about someone else having a similar problem before as well.

Hi there and thank you for your review. We´re still sorry for putting you, the couple that had reserved a twin room, into a room with 1 double bed. We found out only when we wanted to check-in the couple that had actually reserved the double bed. It took some time for our receptionist to figure out what was going on, also because you informed the receptionist that you had actually booked a double bed. We´re trying to make sure it will not happen again. Happy trails!

Rio Soul Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
66%

The two females that worked at reception were very helpful, but some of the other staff members, not so much. The private suite was quite nice (better than we expected) but the common rooms need some work. The breakfast was not great and the "silence" rule after a certain time was never followed and it was always the staff partying and being loud all night, not the guests. The reception had a very weird vibe, but we liked the room and location beside the mall and metro.

Bossa in Rio Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
69%

The positives of this hostel are that they have nice, very clean dorm rooms (but the shared bathroom could be improved), a great breakfast and some of the staff are incredibly helpful (but some not so much). The negatives are that the area is really not safe (we witnessed a daylight mugging) nor close to much (stores and metro are a walk) and the value is not great (laundry and drinks are expensive) as are the rooms. They could also use a communal kitchen and more eating space at breakfast time

This hostel is affordable and has a lovely location with a pool for a nice dip after a day at the Falls. This is our second time in Iguazu and we found Garden House to be a better value than our hostel last time. They helpedus arrange airport tranfers and the breakfast was pretty well rounded for a hostel.

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was incredibly helpful and accomodating. The breakfast was good and the place was very clean. The only drawback is that it is is a good walk from downtown and also be aware that the directions from the hostelword page are not super clear. Also, the rooms could use more fans because San Pedro de Atacama is very hot during the day.

Residencial Tres Soles

Arica, Chile

This place was okay if you are staying for one night and would like to be near the bus station. The family that owns the hostel were very nice and helpful, but there are many rules about things you can't do - leave your bags, wash your clothes, take too many showers, etc., which are posted throughout the hostel. I understand these are posted because guets may have abused these priveleges in the past, but it makes it difficult to relax or feel at home with all the restrictions posted everywhere.

This was a nice hostel with a great view (but you do need to walk up to it). The value is fantastic. However, it was difficult to get a "good night's sleep" because you can hear everything above, below and around you. Overall, a nice stay and beautiful view.

Hostal Casa Areka

Panama City, Panama

We had a private room and it was nice. We also really liked the location close to the supermarket and two malls. Our only problems were that the website (not hostelwoorld, but the hostel's website) said "continental breakfast" on it and there wasn't any and also that when we checked in at our expected per-determined time, no one was there to check us in or give us a key. We waited almost an hour and had to find a phone to call for someone to come. Otherwise, we thought it was a good place.

Estacion Buenos Aires Hostel

Buenos Aires, Argentina

This was the third different hostel we had stayed at in Buenos Aires (not because we are picky, but because we went to Calafa and Iguazu and came back both times). This one had the least character. Our room wasn't too nice and the staff really weren't too helpful. We asked them if they could mail our postcards for us after we left (they already had the postage - we were just in a real rush to the airport and hadn't found any mailboxes despite looking), but none of them ever arrived.

Pax Hostel

We stayed in a few hostels in Buenos Aires. This one was nice. It has a lot going on and is good value. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Of all the aspects of the hostel, we were most impressed by the staff. The breakfast was also pretty good. The only thing I would say is that it is a hostel. As a couple, we tried a few different kinds of places and some of the hostels in BA are old colonial homes which are cool, but this is definitely more of a typical hostel.

We stayed here with Juan and his wife in February. This was a perfect quiet place and great for couples. This is a bed and breakfast though and be aware not a party zone or hostel. It was a lovely stay and the service was excellent! I would recommend this b&b to anyone who would like to have a comfortable nights sleep a little bit away from the main strip (about 10 minutes walk).

We really enjoyed Chill House. The hostel itself was very nice and our private room was clean and spacious. The location was close to the subway and a supermarket. The staff were also very helpful. On a whole, it was my favorite hostel I stayed in Buenos Aires. My only suggestion would be a bit more for breakfast (some other hostels offer more) and if the kitchen were cleaner like the rest of the hostel. This place really is "chill", there is no other word to describe the atmosphere.

We really enjoyed this new hostel. For the value, it is really excellent. About a 5 minute walk to the main square, heaters in the rooms, and hot showers all the time! It was also nice and quiet and they served the usual free Peruvian hostel breakfast (juice, bread, coffee, tea). Would definitley recommend this place to others.

The location was definitley nice for the price. Walking distance to the Shinjuku area. However, we were disappointed that there were renovations and water shut offs for the entire 3 days we were there and we only received the information after we had paid and recieved no discounts despite the multiple inconviences because of it.

It is definitely worth trying a capsule hotel! We were a group of 3 girls and we really enjoyed staying in the capsules for one night. If we had been there more than one night, it might have been hard, but one night was a very unique and fun experience.


73%

We only stayed here for one night and it was nice enough and good value. The food we ate was excellent. I was not too happy about how everything seemed damp - bed, sheets, pillows, etc., but I don't think that was the hostel so much as the weather. Also, the only hostel I stayed at in China that had squatters as opposed to toilets in the room.

I really enjoyed this hostel and would recommended it to anyone. Youth, families, quiet people, partyiers. Nice, clean, quiet near the rooms, good location, good price, and good character.


Beijing Jade Youth Hostel

Beijing, China
93%

We loved it here. All the reviews were right and it is more a boutique hotel. The staff were very friendly and even upgraded our room for free because of a mistake that was made. They also helped us a lot later when we couldn't find a place and were essentially "homeless" for the night. The only caution is that when it comes to seeing sights, their advice/directions and their English is not the best, so double check directions if you get them from the staff to save a lot of headache.
