A very good smaller hostel right next to the central station. It has privacy curtains on each bed and also has a good common room. No kitchen, but everything is great and clean.

The location was great, very convenient to the main station. On Friday and Saturday nights, the noise from the bar/club goes straight into the single room I had. Don't expect to sleep before 3AM, even with earplugs. Besides that, it was a good hostel with a good kitchen and good TV/games room.

Super central location near main train station. Check-in was fast. Rooms and facilities were very well kept and comfortable. The neighborhood around the hostel doesn't have much to do, but Berlin is very easy to get around.

This is a great hostel and they are very upfront about the "colourful" neighbourhood that it is in. It is in a safe area, though, very close to the main train station. Great if you are catching a flight at the airport or if you're seeing the city.

Thank you very much for this honest review! We like to warn our guests about the area, but we also like to remind them how cool it is in the mean time! Close from the train station, best restaurants and bars you can find in Frankfurt... Definitely a must see! Happy travels!

This hostel is a really great 'hotel-style' hostel. It's in a nice non-touristy neighbourhood about a 20 minute tram/bus ride away from the city centre. It isn't the kind of hostel that's small and intimate, but it has other strengths such as high levels of cleanliness/security, a restaurant/bar, and most importantly, a great staff. I would definitely stay here again.

Really excellent location. Two-bed dorms don't have windows you can see out of, though, some natural light does come through. Air conditioning in rooms is pretty good after a hot day in S'pore. Key card entry system that also works for room doors and lockers is great. Awesome common area with balcony views of river and free coffee/hot water. Really friendly staff. The only thing I can say is, keep the door of the laundry machine open, it'll dry it out and prevent it from stinking! =)

Good budget hostel. Right down the street from the main pickup area for the airport shuttle. It's the kind of place where people can choose to be very social or solitary with wide, spacious common areas.

Nice place in Launie with lots of information on places to see in the area and in Tasmania. Visit the Tarkines if you can, it's well worth it.

Thanks so much for the great ratings and comments. We do try to keep up to date with all info on Launceston AND Tasmania, so are happy that you found it helpful. And YES, everyone should visit the Tarkine if possible - it is one of the Worlds most amazing and threatened wilderness areas.

Alex was very kind. Too bad the other young guy there wasn't. The staff in general was very friendly and helpful. The kitchen is great and the rooms are very clean. I have been to a lot of hostels (way more than I've reviewed here) and I would definitely come back here. People can chill out or be social if they want.

The staff was really nice and helpful. It's a bit out of the way. Like all the hostels in Sweden, sheet rental not included. There are a lot of long-term boarders here, rather than tourists, so the vibe is not the same as other hostels. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were good. The laundry machines and dryers are free to use, which is great. =)

This place is right next to the central station. All the staff there were really friendly and helpful. However, the hostel also serves as a waypoint for people immigrating to Sweden, etc, so the atmosphere is very different from other places. I sympathise with the situation of the people/families there, but it was awkward since I was a tourist staying for different reasons. For example, one of the people in my dorm room asked me for money in the first five minutes we met.

All around, a really decent, artsy hostel. Different in that it the rooms are tatami style with no beds. Rooms were clean as well. I try to always give positive reviews but I do have to say two of the receptionists were rather parochial and pigheaded and made me wonder why they were working at a hostel with international guests. The other receptionist and staff were very friendly.

The hostel's name listed on Hostelworld and its directions are wrong. They lead you to a building with no signage saying where the hostel actually is. I arrived at night after a long plane ride and was lucky to have someone point me to where the reception was, in another building down the street. It was a decent place for Hong Kong, but make sure to call ahead of time to make sure where it is.
