From the bus station, turn LEFT down Chramcówki to avoid wondering around the mapless, streetnameless Zakopane town. Take furgons out to the mountains for hiking.

The location of the hostel is perfect, equally situated between Old Town, castle, Jewish Quarter (nightlife) and station. Good breakfast and they store the luggage on the day of departure. Directly above restaurant with typical Polish food.

Bit tricky to find on Rruga e Dibres, there's a big STAR HOTEL sign that you can see if you turn right in front of the Tirana Intl Hotel.

What we got for a double room was shoddy - just a very old, dirty and used mattress (not even double size, it was one of those one-and-a-half ones) with sheet that wasn't big enough to cover the mattress, two blankets and a sink. The place was filthy, the shower and separate toilet equally dirty. It's loud as there's no insulation to stop sound travelling. And you have to pay for internet?!

There are a couple of sections to the hostel, but you can't choose between them, you get placed when you arrive. The one out the back is 'cut off' from the rest of the hostel, where the large social area/tv/kitchen is. Shower's a bit dodgy out the back section but it's RIGHT in the centre.

We arrived on a Sunday and the hostel had no staff, we had to check in with the hotel next door, but we only found out this by accident. We gathered it's one huge accommodation for foreign students at uni or something, since the corridors had communal kitchens, so in the summer it was empty. Beware, the cleaner just barges in. On the plus side, it's RIGHT in the centre.

The hostel comprises a few rooms in the home of an Estonian couple who are very welcoming and helpful, and serve a very good breakfast. The hostel is about 20 mins from the bus station and we needed to ask for directions from locals whose English wasn't great. It's quite a trek from the hostel to anywhere (beach, town, castle) but it's an island suited for exploration anyway, and the roads are very quiet and very wide.

29th Jun 2011

We had the room at the very top of the hostel, it was summer and the room had no air-con, so the room was 30C 24 hours a day, difficult to sleep. It's in a great quarter outside the city walls, but close to the nearest gate and to the ferry terminal for people arriving by boat, and also the infamous Rimi hypermarket.

Nice room, ventilated well in the summer which is good in the 30C heat. The fridge in the kitchen is a bit bizarre, some kind of narrow locker-style system requiring a key, not much storage and very few crockery/utensils. Great showers but toilets not clean. It's a bit of a trek from the hostel to the centre but at least there is bus or tram right outside.

Can't complain about this hostel. Really nice staff, clean shower rooms, nice breakfast, secure lockers opposite the kitchen (not in rooms), comfortable beds in dorms, location on the river between the centre and the castle. Beware of the curfew after midnight I think it was, easily missed since it doesn't get dark in the summer and you don't realise the time.

Aspens, Stansted, England

26th Jun 2011

Convenient for Stansted. There are two hostels co-owned and they happily ferry people between the two when the people have arrived at the wrong hostel, it's not so clear which is which, although they are close by. The accommodation is in small rooms in peoples' houses but you have free reign of the kitchen and plenty of food for breakfast. It is intended as a stop over for the airport, nothing more. Elsenham village is quaint, though.

Uncomfy beds, only one of the four showers was anything but freezing cold or boiling hot. Staff pretty ignorant. Cool that it's just one train stop to the city centre, though

The boat is a few minutes walk from the city centre and train station, otherwise a great stay. Of course the boat rocks from side to side in bad weather!

The staff were very helpful, they told us everything we need to know and gave us a map. The hostel is a few stops on a bus that you take from outside the cathedral. The city is very mixed, approach with an open mind!
