Central Hostel Riga

Riga, Latvia
80%

This hostel is a nice place to stay. It's about a 20 minute walk into the city centre. The door was generally left open, but the rooms were lockable. Staff depended on who you were talking to - some were very nice and helpful, others not so much. The room was fairly clean and spacious and the atmosphere was usually calm and quiet. The bathrooms were lockable and decent, although only two is slightly less than ideal for a whole wing of rooms. Juice, bread, cereal was available for breakfast.

Karosta Prison

Liepaja, Latvia
80%

This IS a prison, so its a bit different. The location was inconvenient - 4km away, with irregular buses, especially on weekends. Having said that, the staff were excellent and very friendly, they looked after us - someone is on the night shift constantly and we could lock our cell when we were out for the day. It isn't very clean, the floors are dusty, but then again, it's a place where tourists walk all day. The toilets have been modernised thankfully. Try something unusual! Why not.

Litinterp Guesthouse Klaipeda

Klaipeda, Lithuania
97%

This is one of the best hostels I've ever been in. It is more like a hotel than a hostel. You get a basket of breakfast delivered in the morning, the room was spacious, with a TV, sink, kettle and tableware. Staff were helpful and when we arrived at night, we got instructions for getting in. Location is short walk from the old town or the harbour. Not a party place, if that's your thing. Very modern, clean toilet/showeroom with a lock. I was so impressed with this, would definitely stay again!

A Hostel

Vilnius, Lithuania
77%

An excellent location right next to the main bus and train stations in Vilnius. There is a 24-hour bistro next door, so you can get some chips or kebab anytime you need (particularly useful if arriving at night). Security of the place wasn't that good - anyone could walk in, but the rooms were lockable. The bathroom facilities were clean and working, although hot water wasn't available constantly. The atmosphere was quiet or loud - depending which day of the week it was. I would stay here again.


M&J Hostel

Rome, Italy

Good hostel, right next to Termini station. Seemed very secure and the staff were friendly and helpful. No free wi-fi and the bathrooms were not the cleanest but overall a good place to spend a few nights.


Barbara Apartments

Pula, Croatia
80%

Our stay at Barbara Apartments was very enjoyable, price reasonable and the accommodation met our needs. It's somewhat far away from the centre of Pula, you need a bus to the centre for 11KN or a 45 minute walk (uphill from town centre to accom). However the apartment was clean and tidy, nice bathroom and bedroom with a balcony. Staff were helpful and polite at all times. It's in a residential area away from the city centre so there's not much to do there, but overall a great place to stay!
