Amazing building, great to stay in it. The ensuite bathroom in our 8 bed dorm could easily have been in a 4/5 star hotel... they even had an elevator with music! Nice, spacious lockers, free breakfast, friendly staff. They hooked us up with a bike tour company which was great for seeing the city and its surroundings.

I really liked the theme of the building (each room themed around a significant figure from Brno) and the coffee in the cafe was really really good. Lovely clean rooms and very comfy beds, good keycard security and very friendly and helpful staff. We had to leave for an early train before the breakfast time, so they packed us breakfast the night before and left it in the fridge, so nice!

This is quite a quiet hostel, so I didn't really meet anyone apart from who was in my own dorm. There is a common area but it's just an open space, maybe some tables here would be good! Facilities really good though, full kitchen, computers, wifi, self service laundry (better cos you can get your clothes back faster) and also a TV on the top floor where I was able to watch EPL matches! Always good! Thanks for a great stay.

Had a great stay. There's a good vibe in the traveller cafe in the evening, especially around the pool table. They also have really good Belgian beers for cheap (Rochefort, Chimay etc) which for me was a godsend after drinking so much terrible rice lager throughout China for so long. If you want breakfast/coffee there in the morning, plan plenty of time. If it's busy they don't cope too well service wise. I would definitely recommend staying here though, and Shanghai is an awesome city!

Really cool vibe here, a series of courtyards with lots of greenery and singing birds. The bar below it is on the Xian nightlife map and pretty buzzing, but the noise is isolated from the rooms completely so you can always sleep well. The traveller cafe at the back is handy for breakfast/coffee/dinner/beer whenever you need it. They had a dumpling/dancing show deal which I did alone (no one else on the list for it!) but I loved it and would recommend!

I have booked 30+ places all around the world and this was the best of them all. Having huge lengths of the great wall to yourself is completely mindblowing. If you are hesitating about booking here, stop it and just GO!! Delicious home cooked food, good beer selection, friendly cats, lovely staff, luxury toilets, super comfy beds (even in dorm) and set in a very welcoming village. They have a good driver who can pick you up at the 980 bus stop, this is a good way to avoid hassle.

They booked a train ticket for me for a small fee, which saved me wasting time at the station trying to find an English desk. I recommend that you use this convenient service! I had a great stay at this hostel, it's really homely and I had lots of interesting conversations in the courtyard with other travellers. I felt the breakfast and coffee were a bit overpriced, but these are optional extras anyway. They have a computer with VPN which is really good for facebook etc.

Great place, a real home away from home. Super comfy dorms, caring staff, nice kitchen and a nice desktop computer with a massive screen. Nice living room area with TV also, good for chatting with people. Ask them for the shortcut to Mcdonalds.. this will get you to the main part of St Julian's much faster, from where you can take buses to other areas.

Really cool hostel with a lovely colourful interior. Breakfast is included and quite a feast. Tea and shisha are constantly available for free. They arranged a 3 day Sahara tour for us which was excellent and very cheap at only 950 dirhams. I highly recommend staying here.

Surely the best hostel in Morocco. Staff were amazing, and the central part of the hostel is great for meeting people. The guided tours they offer are excellent and cheap, and I would recommend them as the medina of Fes is an absolute labyrinth and you will never get to see all the best parts without getting lost and harassed if doing it alone. They offer good value cooked dinners also. The chicken pastella here was the best meal I had in my whole 2 week trip in Morocco!

Breakfast (costs extra) was nice to eat on the roof in the sun. Computers with internet were available. Cool place, would stay again.

It's a bus ride to old town Dubrovnik, but this is the case for almost all affordable accommodation in this area. This hostel is huge and has pretty much every facility you could want. The family that runs it showed us amazing hospitality during our stay, cooked us dinner and made the whole experience well worth what is quite a high price for a hostel. Breakfast was amazing as well - home made French toast with a choice of spreads, cereals and cheese. If you fill up on this you won't need lunch.

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Free pick up is great, and you should definitely not miss the city tour they offer - you will experience Sarajevo from the perspective of somebody who has spent his whole life there and it's truly amazing. Their hospitatilty goes far beyond anything I've seen before... just STAY HERE!!
