The hostel is at the foot of Edinburgh Castle (10 minutes' walk up and town from the train station, no bus network applicable) and has got character. Kitchen is large and has everything, but not many seats are provided, not to mention some small groups take up one large table at a time. Besides, I simply hope the check-in time coukd be earlier than 14h30 and they coukd have checked whether visitors have heavy luggages, because we were put into an attic room on the 4th floor without a lift.

Dear guest, thank you for your review. I think you have may have mistaken us for a hostel in Edinburgh, however you are welcome to stay with us anytime in Cambridge. Kind regards, Olivia - Reception

Great location which takes onky five minutes to walk to Boston common park, the starting point of Freedon Trail. Near metro stations too. The onlything I would hope them improve is that there were people playing in midnight and made noises but no one attended to it.

Very, very spaceful in Europe at this price. The hostel is under good management and staffs get things done efficiently. The downtown of Dresden itself is not a big place with all the main sites in it, and the hostel is just beside it so you can save costs for trams and there is a Lidl nearby, too. The only things we find a bit inconvenient is that they have only 2 guest kitchens and you need a key from the reception and should return once you finish. Maybe they have their reasons to do so...

Difficult to find, yet the interior makes guests feel like at home. Large common place offers chances to meet and talk to people, yet could be a bit noisy for those who sleeps nearby. Kitchen is well equipped but someone didn't do their job after meals. Bathrooms and toilets are plenty so you will always find one, and laundry machine is free to use. Receptionists are easy going and very helpful.

The hostel is tiny and well-organized. They have only 2 bathrooms and one of them in being reinnovated so that's the only thing that bothers. They make bread for guests for breakfast. The location is somehow difficult to find but once you get used, the location is pretty good as you are one stop from Red Square and Leningrad Railway Station, very close to Kursk Railway Station (to take trains to and from Vladimir) and Winzavod. Special thanks to Maria for being so helpful :)

Beds are unexpectedly small, basically single bed for two. The staff were friendly and cleaned the room every day. Perfect location to go anywhere on foot, by metro, or by ship. Good choice for budget travellers.

Just something in additional: They have everything from guest kitchen & guest computers to laundry but the fees are a bit expensive. The free beer wasn't tasty at all in my opinion though. Also, I think the air circulation inside the bldg could be improved.

View Property Reply

Hej Mei, thank you for the feed back! We keep an eye on the air conditioning all the time, because you are right; it is important. But about the free beer I have to admit I'm not sure what you mean; we offer free pasta, sauna, bikes, skates and free internet, but we don't offer free beer! You must have got it from another guest. I'm really sorry it didn't taste well (I love a good beer myself) but I hope you had a great time in Stockholm anyway! Kindly Lena

The only problems would be that they don't have elevator which is inconvenient for guests with heavy luggage, and the shower facilities aren't in good condition. The place is quite comfortable and releasing. They cook breakfast for everyone and it's tasty. The hostel is located in the very centre and close to Rossio Station where you can catch a train to Sintra.

Staff rock somehow rather than being very easy-going. Rooms are clean though very crowded to put luggage. Beds not steady so it's easy to be waken up. Location enables walking to sites, and the map they offer is brief.

Helpful staff who offer a map and coupons. Good location as it's close to Passeig de Gracia and metro which brings you to sights farther away. Just be a bit aware of getting lost in the quarter. Restrooms not enough clean and convenient.

Good location to start with a riverside walk. Shouldn't miss their hand-made Korean breakfast. The place is big and well-equipped, though the only WC/bathroom for each sex is obviously not enough. Also hope they can install English operating system, and always have someone at reception desk.

Can be especially recommended to Chinese visitors. The staff were really nice but it seemed that their tourism info cost us more. In general it\'s an economic and convenient choice for staying in Venice.

Emerald Palace, Florence, Italy

10th Feb 2009

We stayed at Emerald Field instead because the Palace was under reconstruction, but without knowing that there'd also be more ppl in our dorm. Anyway we still enjoyed well-equipped & cozy lounge and kitchen. Just a bit inconvenient that ppl come and go frequently for our extra bathroom as the door couldn't be locked. It was also unreasonable to charge the luggage-keeping for 2 euros per person. Better to bring a towel for the quilt as it doesn't have a cover.

They set the character like a nightclub which brought crazy and noisy ppl more than happy atmosphere. The staff also seemed a bit aggressive though really kind to help, since they were so busy. The public bathrooms are well-equipped (just miss some hooks in the shower boxes) but the cleanliness wasn\'t regarded at all. They should have posted notices about this.

Pretty good location (close to Metro Station "Loreto" of L1&2) and the staff are friendly, but the heating system is not working so it can be quite freezing without a carpet in winter. Other travellers are extremely noisy at ANY time of the day.

Not very close to the trainstation and main attractions, though the city is small. They offer breakfast and supper (personally I think it\'s very convenient) with a fair charge. The music makes the lounge very cozy. The public shower is hot and powerful but the hooks are so few that bringing a big bag for your things is recommend.
