Chelsea is a nice area, and the hostel is only a few streets from two Metro lines, but there's no good reason to stay here. It was over priced, dirty, it didn't have a hostel atmosphere. It's a run down motel, with sub-standard wifi connection, boring breakfast, old & filthy bathrooms, uncomfy beds, lockers that need massive padlocks, otherwise you can't use them, and the air con in my room needed a bed pressed up against the electrical plug to stay turned on!! I can't recommend this place.

Duo Housing DC

Washington DC, USA

This hostel is basically a house that they have plunked bunk beds into. It had clean bathrooms, but that's it. It was hard to find from the street. The whole front entrance smells like dirty feet. The door to my dorm didn't even close let alone lock. The lockers are filing cabinets. Staff come into the rooms to turn out the light at curfew. And you can't use the facilities at all after you check out, except to leave your bag for the rest of the day. Zero atmosphere... Was very disappointed.

Great hostel, best in New York. Right on the metro line, excellent fast WIFI in the dorm rooms & very clean! Stay here!...... They do however need to update their directions from the Metro - a little hard to find the first time due to the lack of comprehensive directions.

I had a really enjoyable stay at Southern Comfort! Very clean and safe, lockers at reception, and only a short 15 min walk to downtown, very friendly staff and a fully equipped kitchen! Pancakes each morning were fab! Movie room and free wifi were nice bonuses. Only downside, is there's only one hot shower for everyone to share...

ANZAC House is has prime location near the ferry for visiting Gallipoli, and their Gallipoli and Troy tours are fabulous! They have an air conditioned common area upstairs which is great for escaping the hot weather & the staff are very friendly and helpful in booking tours and transfers for onward journeys! Only thing to fault is it gets pretty hot in the dorm room with only one fan.

Great hostel in Frankfurt! Location is great, so long as you don't mind the proximity to the red light district. The staff provide good direction as to which areas are safe at night etc which is very helpful! The rooms are a good size and each floor of the building has a locked door, so everything seemed fairly safe! & the inculded breakfest is very tasty! Definately will stay here again next time i'm in Frankfurt!

Pretty clean, decent kitchen and a great location.

Oasis Palace Seville was ok for the price. Good location, comfortable beds, mostly clean and modern and air conditioning in the bedrooms! However, the kitchen is way too small for the number of people staying and the wifi never worked... There was a que for the 4 hostel computers 24 hours of the day.... Some of the staff were also rude and didn't seem to know much about Seville.

Hostel staff were very friendly and helpful. Although there were 20 beds in the room it's comfortable enough and the location was good for getting around town! Hard to find from the directions provided though, not helped by the street not having a sign. The directions need to be updated for walking.

Pop Hostel

Madrid, Spain

I stayed 2 nights, in a different room each night. The first room was a 6 bed dorm on the window over the street - above the fish market!! Need I say the smell was not pleasant... and it was extremely noisy. The second room was far nicer, 3 bed dorm, was further into the building and didn't smell nearly as bad. On a good note, the kitchen facilities are good and the location is pretty central to all the tourist destinations. But hard to find the first street once you're out of the metro.

The hostel was a far from anywhere, really in the 'burbs, but it was right on the metro line, so easy to get around & walking distance to the beach. I was very impressed with the lockers in the rooms, every bed has a giant locker which is secured with the room key! Only suggestion i can make, the common showers need more than just a curtain for privacy! Overall a good place for a few days

The staff here are lovely, so it's unfortunate for them that my stay was less than perfect. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and the room smelt horrible for my whole stay. The showers aren't very good and the beds are uncomfortable. And worst of all their dumplings gave me food poisoning... But these are all things that can be fixed!! On a good note the location is pretty good and as I mentioned the staff are great, very helpful booking tickets and providing travel information.

I had a great stay at Mix Hostel! It had everything that a backpacker needs, privacy curtain on bunck beds, plus a reading light and a little shelf... When you're travelling for a long tome, it's these small things that make the difference. Hot showers, travel advice and the common room was a great place to meet other travellers! To top it off that staff are amazing! Highly recommend this hostel!!

I had a great time at Yangshuo 11! I stayed for 2.5 weeks in a 6 bed dorm. The entire hostel was very clean and well organised. Best shower in china! The views from the rooftop are amazing! The staff are very friendly and eagerly offer their advice. Best of all, when it rains, which it does... there are literally hundreds of good movies to keep you occupied. I highly recommend Yangshuo 11 and hope to stay again in the future! (p.s great location, & not as noisy as many other places at night)

Just stayed one night, but really enjoyed myself. The common area is the best part, really groovey atmosphere, cool music playing, nicely decorated and a good place to meet other travellers. Also the food and drinks are good and reasonably priced. When I got to my room, someone elses key was still in the lock, and the door doesn't lock automatically, so I think the room was unlocked all night.... but aside from that I had a good stay and will stay again.

City Central is a clean hostel, security is pretty good, big lockers in the rooms - just no lock provided, but you can buy one at reception - Wifi in the lobby, hot showers & laundry service. The location is pretty good, close to the metro station and 30 minutes by metro to people's square. I got to meet lots of other travellers here, not a bad place for people travelling by themselves

Mingtown has the best location for moving about in the People's Square area. The beds are comfortable and the showers are hot. But the food in the hostel bar is very expensive and the atmosphere in the common areas is slow - not a great place to meet people. Also I stayed extra nights and they charged me an inflated rate because I booked those nights directly with them. I've stayed here many many times, but this might be my last

Bunk Backpackers

I had a rough stay here, other people in the room would come in during all hours of the night screaming, yelling and threatening other guests. But the hostel staff were quite helpful when I requested a new room. Their locker system is pretty crappy though, they only have single use lockers, that you need to pay for every time you use it. The beds were clean and the bathrooms were ok. Wont be staying again though

It sounds like it was the other people in your room that made you decide that you would not stay with us again, we are very sorry you did not see BUNK in the same light as many other satisfied guests. If you're ever in Brisbane again just give us a ring and ask to speak to one of the super rad management team of BUNK and we'll see if we can't help turn that frown upside down! We would hate to know one of our guests had a crappy stay predominantly due to other guests in the room being loud and obnoxious. Thanks all the same, The Punks + Spunks @ BUNK

I had an enjoyable stay in Sarajevo, i travelled there alone and the hostel was pretty empty when i was there, so there wasn\'t much going on, but the staff were very helpful. Only down side, i thought it wasn\'t particularly clean, but the beds had clean linen, so i guess thats the most important thing, and somehow i ended up with the only bed without a locker.

All around not a bad place.

I was very unhappy with this hostel. It was dirty and i got a splinter from the bed as soon as i arrived.

Wouldn\'t recommend staying here.
