Hostel Diana Park, Helsinki, Finland
7.7
23rd Apr 2016

Over all a solid hostel with a great location in the center of Helsinki. Security wasn't all too good, since there were only small lockers and only one key to the room, that needed to be left at the reception by the last person leaving the room. Also everyone could enter the hostel and bypass the reception. No breakfast, only coffee and tea. Showers could have been cleaner.

Great hostel overall, good design, location, friendly laid back staff and huge common area. I had to check in late at night and it was no problem at all. The hostel was mostly empty during my stay, but I guess it was still new and during the off season.

This hostel is amazing. Basically it is like staying at your rich friends house. Perfect location right at the town hall square, clean and super friendly staff. A basic breakfast, tea and coffe is also available and you can use the fully equipped kitchen. Also there is a huge common room. Only thing you have to know: the hostel is in a old building, with old wooden floors and ceilings. You can hear every single step within the building, be aware of that if you are a light sleeper.

Great hostel with all the right features and perfect location. There is a pub on the first two floors that serves a huge selection of local beers and ciders on tap. Since they don't serve breakfast you get a beer/cider/beverage for free each day. Having said that there is a pub inside the hostel, so it does get noisy, loud even at nights! Free ear plugs are provided, but if you're a light sleeper, go somewhere else!

Fabrika Hostel & Gallery, Vilnius, Lithuania

Generally there is nothing wrong with the place. Perfect location, right at the heart of the old town. But dorms have a lot of people staying there long term. There are no lockers and no keys to the dorm rooms. The only lock is on the entrance door and that is only a numeric keypad lock. Also common area turns into play area of the workers kids in the evening, which were very loud.

Not much to say, overall it was OK. No lockers though and pretty low security on who can enter and leave the property.

Messed up my booking. No dorm room available on arrival. Had to change to private room, with no discount. Staff speaks little English. Bathroom wasn't as clean as you would expect, but room was spacious, had an a/c, TV and a balcony.

17th Feb 2015

Great Hostel in the Center of Hanoi. It's modern, clean, fast wifi, ok breakfast, has a great in house bar (with free unlimited beer happy hours) and hot showers. However, it's a party hostel, there is an in house disco, that makes the whole place vibrate until 3 am. Lockers in dorm rooms are too small.

Great hostel, right in the heart of El Nido. Simple, but good breakfast, lockers for your valuables and a friendly staff that will help you organize everything you desire, from island hopping to motorbike rentals. Wifi works sparsely, which is the norm in the Philippines.

Located about 15-20 min by foot from main train station. Close to major shopping area. Housed within an old traditional Japanese house with tatami floor layout. Quite cold during stay in winter. Small lounge and kitchen area. No lockers in room and only one shower per gender. Staff was very helpful and nice though spoke only very basic English.

Hostel7 Brasilia, Brasilia, Brazil
9.1
2nd Jul 2013

It is the only hostel in Brasilia and if you stay there you're sure to lodge with a lot of young architects. It is also new, which is always a plus. The sleeping rooms are a bit noisy though, since the windows open to the street and court. Also it's not in the center, but Brasilia is anything of a city for walking so you end up taking the bus/taxi everywhere anyhow. Getting there is a bit difficult, but again that's Brasilias bad infrastructure. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly.

Copa villa Hostel, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
4.9
28th Jun 2013

The following is no dramatization: The hole hostel smelled like urine the whole time I was there, there was an older staff member who was exposing himself nude constantly, the rooms were tiny and cramped with three story beds with no space between and the whole hostel seems sketchy. The entrance is through a garage door between two residential blocks. The doors are constantly unlocked and besides the fear of getting your things stolen, you're in fear constantly of getting molested by the staff.

The location is perfect, you're in the best and safe neighborhood. The hostel is nothing special, but works rather well. Nothing to complain about during my stay.

4 Friends, Palermo, Italy

2nd Jan 2012

This is one of the worst hostels I have stayed in and I have backpacked many times including now where I backpack for over three months now across southern Europe. The only thing good about it is it's location, that's it. One of just two bathrooms was broken. The other one had a 1,8 m (5'10") ceiling height and hasn't been cleaned in months. The beds were uncomfortable and loud, the sheets smelled and the room was cold. Over all the whole place was just dirty and smelly - gross!
