Hostel Possonium

Bratislava, Slovakia

Great outdoor area with a cat and her two kittens! Fun hostel. Very cool downstairs bar. You get to know staff here. 15 mins walk into old town. Majority of staff v nice and good fun. Free shot on arrival, super kitchen area, comfy bunks. there was no air con or fan and the ground floor room can get a little smokey if people are sat outside smoking. Recommend this hostel :)

Hello, we are glad you like our hostel.During your stay here, we had really high temperatures here in Bratislava, the weather like this is not usual in here.


Nice hostel, very friendly with good facilities. They give you an excellent map, you can borrow essentials from them too such as guide books, hair dryers and plug adapters. Good common areas, with computers and a fun bar although perhaps more geared towards a young crowd who are fresh out of school. Just across the road from a fantastic market and close to the metro. Wifi can cut out when in the dorms, and there is a frustrating log in process with it. Generally very happy with our stay here.

Weird! The owner slept in our dorm room and all day on the only sofa. He told us we could smoke in the outside area and then told us off for doing so. He speaks no English and doesn't really seem to care about the hostel. His family were there on our last day and stared at us the whole time! Not very secure. nightmare to get into the place. Very uncomfortable beds. Shower was ok but bring your own soap and toilet roll! There was also a coffee machine, fridge and microwave. Wifi was dodgy.

Appalling. We arrived, handed over our money and were taken for a five minute walk down the road, where us and the money were handed over to a completely different hostel called hostel Harold. No wifi. No lift. No one spoke any English. Toilets were disgusting. Very dodgy area of town. Windows didn't shut, very noisy street night. Uncomfortable bed. No lockers or on the door security. No loo roll. Everything was broken. They wouldn't give us a map. Not sure hostel fauborg Montmartre even exists.

Guesthouse Chapitre

Marseille, France

We had an amazing stay here. Perfect location, the couple who run it are very sweet and helpful and sea/cathedral views from the room. Excellent value for money and we shall absolutely be returning here :)

Hostal Nilo SL

Barcelona, Spain

Great location, mostly friendly staff, very hot building with no air con and the fan in our room barely worked. We had a balcony and an outdoor shower that we were not expecting which was nice, although a family of ants did move in on our last night. If you want to meet people then this isnt the hostel for you. Generally good value for money for the location.

U Hostels

Madrid, Spain

Soulless hostel, the staff were not very helpful, one of the beds in our room was double booked creating a big argument at 4am. Showers were blocked with hair. It wasn't a bad hostel, but we expected a lot more for the price and the online profile - allegedly one of the top ten luxury hostels in Europe! Nothing special about this one, go somewhere nicer for the same price or cheaper! If you are looking for somewhere friendly, this is not the place.
