I had a fantastic stay at Freehand Miami. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. It was great having a pool area and bar at the hostel too. The staff were very friendly and happy to help (particularly Iris - thank you!). A warning though - if you need to cancel any nights make sure you do it in advance and ask for the name of the person you spoke to and proof of cancellation. I cancelled in advance but was charged anyway as the person I spoke to didn't process it properly.

The staff were incredible - really friendly and fun, and extremely helpful. There were events planned for every night. The hostel was really clean and you felt at home. The kitchen was fine and there is a computer room as well. The location is excellent. A really cool area in Madrid with heaps of bars & restaurants only a short walk (15 mins) to the centre of the city, and a metro station at the end of the road. Highly recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to Madrid!

One bathroom & toilet in the one room that was for three 8 bed rooms was seriously insufficient - particularly when the hostel was heavily booked. We didn't feel comfortable at the hostel nor feel as if our belongings were safe. We felt the need to keep our bags locked all the time even when at the hostel even when simply going to the bathroom. The hostel was close to a metro but this was the only good thing about the location of the hostel.

We only stayed here for one night and it was exactly what we needed (somewhere central to stay for the night). The location was great (right next to Taksim Square), but the beds were very uncomfortable and the kitchen was small & dirty..

We only stayed here for one night and it was everything we needed - great location, friendly staff. The rooms were pretty small and very limited space for your bag, but other than that it was fine.

Cheers Hostel, Istanbul, Turkey

We really enjoyed our stay at Cheers. The staff were very helpful in suggesting places to eat and things to do. They also helped us to sort out some transport issues and book a tour for Cappadocia. The breakfast was excellent - the best hostel turkish breakfast we had in the 3 weeks we were in Turkey. The lack of kitchen facilities and absence of a lock on the room door were the only downsides.

The staff here were lovely and the hostel was in a great location with a beautiful view of the sea. Breakfast was great - traditional turkish breakfast (olives, tomato, cucumber, egg, bread, cheese). The beds were very uncomfortable, but other than that we enjoyed our stay.

Good location and reasonable price. The hot breakfast was a nice change to usual hostel breakfasts too. the security is not good and the fact that its a christian hostel may bother some people. we only stayed one night and werent hanging around in the hostel so we werent bothered by it

beautiful building in a pretty central area. great to have free dinner as well as breakfast! Easy to meet people seen as the staff take you out at night and everyone eats together. the bathroom was pretty decent too.
