Best place and staff in Berlin. ...
The facilities are excellent and the staff are world class!!! The only suggestion I can make is to improve the breakfast restaurant aka Grand Ma's. It would make the stay much, much more cozy if guests whom can show there receipt of stay can sit and have coffee and free or discounted refills as they prepare for the travels ahead. Just a thought and perhaps make sure the kitchen staff are as professional and friendly as the awesome reception and general staff!!!
Best deal around...finding it was an adventure. And well worth it!

The best hostel in northern Europe for sure! Having traveled rather extensively I can recommend this place highly! Consistently safe, clean and super comfortable beds (non bunk) with immaculate facilities of spotless modern bathrooms with many showers, great bar, library, breakfast buffet, bike rental, professional helpful staff whom can get you ready for an amazing outing to see the sights and or clubs! Near both underground U7 and elevated tram U2, U12. Book it ASAP as it fills up most nights.
Grand indeed! Super comfy beds, immaculately clean bathrooms and showers, fun bar and nice library reading area too. A high profile property, with excellent staff and super safe area thats less than a minute walk to U7 and U1 train stations, that goes directly to the club scene without the masses of peeps, getting sick under your hostel window at 3am...close yet a few stops far enough to be gracious. Been down to berlin from denmark so many times and this is perhapst the best hostel ever!
Great place. clean, comfortable, good facilities and cozy in the heart of the best part of Budapest! The person who runs the place is a fabulous traveler himself! Being from Budapest and with lots of travel experience I found he was a vast source of great info advice and knowledge of the best of what to do and see in the area...you can literally walk to so much of the best the area has to offer...would have liked to stay longer...
Awesomeness in local, owners, facilities and good free breakie! Definitely come again! Really great on site staff able to help mist time of day and night!
Way cool owners and staff who know everything and what to see and do in Budapest!
Ester and her crew are awesome!!!!! So helpful like extended cool family!!! Miss them already!! Great place in middle of everythingon relatively quiet street si you can actually open and enjoy balconies! Definitely a top stay in Budapest!
Great local, staff, evening dinner. One stop spot for all the best of Lisbon! Fabio is a super amazing person! He helped us with so many aspects of our long weekend in Lisbon! Told us the best spots and helped with every issue while staying. Recommended the great in house chef meal deal that was really gourmet! Best spot around!!! Safe locataion, clean and comfortable beds, fresh sheets, clean shower and cool staff! 1 euro for fresh squeezed orange juice make the morning after manageable! Thanks
Would have liked to rate it higher. I am hoping that if a staff person, in this case Anita, are in a bad mood or stressed, that they not put that on a guest. In this case myself. Specifically I was looking at the key for storage to communicate that is the key I would need ( as often there is a language barrier since my German is not perfect) I left the key on the counter and pointed to it. Her she felt the need to go on some lecture about the key. Annoying at least! And never an apology! Typica
Simply the best in Europe if not the world so far!!!! And I have been travelin loads!!!!!!! If not for this lay over when in Berlin all the bustling would be breakin me wheee mind!!!! Cheers all and keep up the great work and atmosphere. Hope to make it back to you again asap! Been on a whirlwind and your an oasis in the mayhem!!!!
Always fresh coffee for free and a full kitchen, has many many clean showers and large communal space to meet people. best value in central berlin. rent a bike for under 10euros a day and see everything from here as a base. lockers are tall and hold alot. Local good people working here, ready to help and keep the place safe and always open. better value area for shopping and dining. great stay all around. highly recommended!!! thanks to the lovely staff and good facilities. Guests age approx 20y
Community lives! they turned a factory into a cool communal hot spot in the center of hardcore east berlin. great kitchen and socializing areas. kind and smart staff who are living the lifestyle of real community. comfy beds w good bedding. Real Berlin at its best! A rare and nature crafted community indeed. Wild hearts welcome. snobby whiners may prefer a commercial enterprise elsewhere. Ask about swimming in local lakes. This is the less explored area of Berlin and a worthy adventure indeed!!!
Grand Berlin with the best free tour info and good priced bike tours. Jerome, Christian and Daniel know all the best spots and managed to organize club outings and bike tours from the onsite bar and and library. The underground just outside goes direct to the best clubs in Berlin and the facilities are 5star (except no pool). The staff directed us to Baden Shaft a pool built into the river on the same U line. The beds and linens are first class as are the bathrooms and facilities in general. Thx
Best layover ever!. Grand for sure...High style and ceilings in a beautifully well preserved pre WWI heritage building. The staff are gracious and knowledgeable. Jerome, Christian and Daniel man the city insiders infos, events, bike tours and club outings that start at the onsite library and bar. U1 and U7 are a 2 min walk. Beds super comfy, new w quality linens always immaculate. Highly advised when coming to Berlin! Ask for the metro and underground all day discount pass. A must stay destinati
heart of pberg good location
nice quiet stay for a good rest
near eastberlin sites
Great staff and clear to get you what you need even dealiing witih hundreds and hundreds of people at all hours, so be kind to them! Great facilities, clean modern in the heart of Berlin innercity. Walk to the river or to a music event or a great falafel around the corner. Meet fun peeps looking to have a good time and relax in a safe comfy bed in a high end modern facility with proper kitchen and fridge and even a fridge outside the kitchen after it looks down to protect your food from party pe
Upon arrival Mira was a real gem of a lady acting as Concierge. Not just friendly, real kind and trully caring and several visits now with the same consistancy! Feels like a 5 star hotel and the owners run this place better every year! Hard to believe but it is always top end and flawless day to day week to week and now year to year. Will win the Best European Hostel in the long run for sure! Prepare to enjoy a real beautiful German experience in the authentic old style of uncorrupted Germany!
great self cooking kitchen and the local is near all the great Berlin shopping. Primark a few stop on underground near by and its a hotel with a wing used as a hostel with security top end and really clean with comfy beds and you can control the room temp and enjoy the bar and full facilities of a higher end hotel in the ritzy Kudamm area of Berlin. Great Bargain.
they are improving it nicely in good location
thx for the brief stay. no complaints for sure and for the quick layover it was great! if they decided to fix up the dorm room the price would probably go up. so take it for what it is a good price in a good safe place. if the ventilation was increased it could help get repeat customers. they have good tours and package deals too!
even better than last year! for sure the best hotel hostel in Hanoi!!! Now with a new high quality elevator to the dorms on the 6th floor or the improved and upgraded rooms. amazing free breakfast everyday and the kindest, smartest and most fun staff in vietnam!!! rest assured, you can roll into hanoi and be treated well with all your needs covered, well priced laundry, good tours and bookings for must see places in the area, they are knowledgeable and able and ready to help you book it all. thx
perfect layover, close to it all...fantastic owners and they are ever improving the facilities, even added little personal fans to the fan room dorm beds. thx!!
great brothers staffing the place! They know what is going on in bkk and can help you navigate it brilliantly!!
Best of Bangkok! Cool lounge area that Kevin maintains with Swiss hospitality and chic Thai style w partner Wasana. Safe fun for the young hip travelers to party with international groups exploring epic Bangkok.. Comfy beds to rest up and go again in a real Thai home in the heart of the city that is high passion and rarely sleeps!!! All done tastefully with a great price and value. best of the best for sure!! you can go to fun bars and clubs and avoid political barricades cause the fun is walkin
extended another day as it was such a great deal and the staff sorted out my ticket to bangkok with pickup at the hostel, and motorbikes are delivered to you as well for the same price as going to a rental center. cool staff and good facilities. true value!
Good stay in the heart of CM. Cool German guy named Marco and professional staff make your stay memorable with fun guests to meet and explore the city together on foot. The modern day Germans are quite impressive these days and here is but another good example. Highly recommended stay.
best deal in CM and perhaps Thailand. Cool layout with huge comfy couch and modern entertainment system for thousands of new movies. Dorm beds are new and comfortable read beds, not bunk beds! Smartest people are here and reservations are booked in advance. Kitchen is functional, pool table is regulation sized. Staff are the cool kids of CM and the owners are a really smart Thai English couple with setting up all the facilities travelers require at the best price possible. Nice rooms too!
Super clean, safe, comfortable and modern. Felt like a European hostel in the middle of Chang Mai. The location is near the night club, thai wild side stuff. So close to the night market, china town, and just outside the old city. Lovely washing area with a full kitchen and fridge to use in a modern building with 24hour staff. Mostly fun young travellers on the way to treks or passing through. Would stay again for sure.
everything you need in the old quarter town near the cool food markets and fun people. simple, good accom from a traditional family whom knows Chang Mai better than anyone and can get all your tours and questions sorted. Security lock for anytime in and out makes for a great stay any time of day or night. fun people to meet and see the sites and make party.
Well managed, nice property, decent facilities at a very good value. At peak season the best rooms fill up very very fast and many people want to stay here so book early. If it is too busy and you book later you might get a room in Kikies Homebase that is nice enough. They are so popular they are expanding and they can sort out all your travel needs, tour, treks, bus, etc. Fun to socialize as there are always a good group of travelers willing to explore the city together. Sleeping is sound w 10p
Arrived from Bangkok 6am on a rough cheap bus and waited til check in. The boy working at the desk calls himself Boom tried to overcharge me in my exhausted state for laundry and my wallet went missing during the time I was sorting the laundry at the foot of the tour desk where he was selling treks. My trust was lost and I stayed at backups. The owner lady is very gracious and sophisticated woman and I would stay at her place. She charged me the correct laundry price and deserves better staff!!!
High quality, clean, organized, comfortable hostel with high ceilings, good service, washing machines. best low price deal in Bangkok. Always busy and full with smart travelers and excellent food around the corner with Koh Sarn a few streets away so its chilled at night at the hostel with security key entrance for any hour in and out. 40 baht can wash all you clothes with drying racks on balconies or clothes dryer if needed. super comfy beds, must have cost a fortune with bright white sheets +du
Fun spot to pop in Bangkok. Brilliant location 2 streets parallel to Koh Sarn so quiet if you need it, and always a group forming in the lobby to take on the town. Beds are comfy and well apportioned with lockers big enough for backpack. Staff super friendly and smart with Jipp a possible genius remembering so many people over the years. Good wi fi, free internet stations and fun people. Fun is the key not a spot for geriatric slumber silence, yet comfy enough after make party. Cheers!
Rockin Ricky is off to create another gem seaside soon so jump him while you can ladies! The hipper and higher vibe George Clooney of diving and thriving has procured a 5 star gem of a sweet spot in Kata, yours for a song!!!! Its like a back stage pass with breakfast included!!!! Get it while you can!!!! The hedonist empire is expanding to paradise near you! Or at-least where you want to be! And you know I write this to put a smile on his face because he is juggling the whole show 24/7!!!!
Walk to the best beaches in Thailand w the best price. Simple clean accom that is perfect for the world traveler. Stopped in after a European winter to sun up and ready for the SEA travels. Clean, comfortable and friendly staff make it the gem of the Karon Kata beach area. Backpackers get a great deal with the dorm and a good start on a tour for sure. Knowledgeable staff can organize tours, sites and boats to Phi Phi etc. Will be back for sure!
Great place! Great People! In a sweet spot off the bustling roads in a nice nest of traditional Thai boutique style. Its like a 5 star hotel with cool fun people running the place and treating you like family! Excellent dive team and community! Thinking of getting some investors in Denmark to partner with Ricky. He built this with the highest rating on TripAdvisor and peer recommendations! A literal Gold Mine of potential, already a success and only open a few months!!! Will be back for sure!

Fantastic best priced Hostel in Kata Karon! Run by local Thai family and the God-Father of Backpacking Mr. Steve whom is originally from the UK and has married a very graceful and elegant Thai lady. They have the cutest kids and if your looking for a great breakfast w European muslii tea, and yogurt they have a very Thai atmosphere with these treats. It is simple and clean accommodation. Walk to the beach, snorkel in blue warm waters and bronze within budget! Knowledgeable local staff, know whe

Fantastic hostel beds on the sixth floor...the beds are non bunk big and super comfy with large locking closets (lockers) and the bathroom is so clean and modern with the large overhead rain nozzle and a European styled shower-head on hand held handle. Also the air-con is great with two units in the dorm and a large flat screen w/remote and spotless floors, linens changed by hotel staff daily. The free breakfast and free juice and coffee is a real deal and the staff are most helpful and fiendly
Best priced place to hostel in Hanoi! Good bathroom, firm and good bed, free breakfast, beer party free too! Safe and near the Cathedral in the middle of the most active old quarter. Cool staff team that can book good tours with fun people and there are shared and girl only dorms so everyone feels safe. Great people to meet and tours to see. Highly recommended of the many trips to Hanoi now. And again the price is just more than amazing!!! Stay here and save for a trip to Halong Bay or Sapa!!!!

excellent staff, Kim, David and Gary. recommend a private room as it can be hard to sleep in the dorm. lovely breakfast for free, great advice on travels and free maps and directions to all the sites around hanoi. hope they renovate the dorm bathroom soon as it is not so nice to be in for more than 30 seconds. free airport pickup is rated high too. Perhaps the best place to visit hanoi for the first time.
best hostel in bangkok. around the corner from koh sarn, so fun action without the noise when you wanna rest up. clean modern art deco place with fun staff who take good care of all the guests making it one of the most popular hostels with a constant crew of fun seeking backpackers. big clean beds, ac that is sometimes too cold, a roof, laundry, cute eating spot in the entrance and movies in the lobby and peeps meeting up to party there everynight. can sleep well, safe and comfortable everynight
Aoi has the best spot in authentic Chiang Mai. Real elevated hardwood accom in the center north of the old town with a garden. The owner lovely Aoi who has over 10yrs tour guide exp into the real culture and never pushy! She is a gem and always moving helping and smiling non stop. Serious and authentically she cares about you and your stay. Dorms are clean large non-bunk beds with fans and privacy curtains. Rooms are more authentic CM style with all the comforts possilble. Always full for a good
simple good place to stay while passing through...safe and great location near lovely market with beautiful fruit salad, muesli and yogurt inside the market, see the lady Tips for the best breakfast at 50 baht. traditional thai family runs this place and its a good value. hot shower, lockers and tents if the dorm crew is not for you. good to socialize and meet fun travelers. stayed twice back and forth from Pai as many do.
clean hot shower with good pressure! easy to learn about current travel details and book tours with the staff. helped me see.halong bay, sapa, train to south and local stuff in hanoi like perfume pagoda and showed me how to get tickets to the water puppet show with no fee for that help. they gave maps to both room guests and the backpackers staying with them. the dorm is clean and cool even without air con. free morning lovely free eggs and baguette! and coffee included too..good way to start th

liked the crew and the soulful op they set up so much i wrote a review on trip advisor and just saw i could write up on hostelworld too. The best full on fun within safety on this beach. I was putting myself together and scouted about to realize they do offer the best dives and experiences. They really care if you have a good time! Non stop party that is kind and respectful. Priced well too! Better than a boring 5 star Club Med just down the beach at a fraction of the cost w real local culture.

Fantastic value. Blue waters for snorkeling a short walk down the city block. Many places to eat. fun raggae bar 50m out the door. Safe and well lite for solo traveling. The kind staff let me borrow mask and fins for free to snorkel and found fun people to swim with. I checked many tours and travel deals at other places first and booked with Steve and his wife whom own the pineapple. They ensured I had a good deal and they are generous with knowledge of the area. Dorm was good for a rest w fridg

The manager is a real nice and friendly fellow! Can recommend good local drinks and gets the place in a festive party mode. Also the staff are busy at reception and still very friendly and helpful. Marcella was exceptionally helpful and efficient in tending to the multiple tasks of her post. I enjoyed the very comfortable bed and perhaps the best value in Hamburg! The other guests in my dorm where very respectful and did the best to minimize unnecessary noise. It is too easy to part in the bar.
